The commencement of summer comes with troubled skin. The weather and climate make skin itchy and oily to some people while some face dryness and acne. Visiting beauty parlour every now and then is not economically viable; also it causes skin damages and loosening in the long run when done too frequently.
We propose 6 top face pack ideas to take care of your skin at home. These remedies are not just easily available and under budget, but also prove to be effective for a long term when applied time to time. Applying these face packs for one time will do no good to you, therefore you have to be honest with yourself and use them time to time, about once in a week or in two weeks. The hero for most of these face packs is the LEMON! So always have them stored in your refrigerators.
1. Lemon and Honey Face Pack
Mix a tablespoonful of lemon juice with another tablespoonful of organic honey syrup and stir well. Apply the mixture evenly and leave it for around 15 to 20 minutes, wash with warm water. This rejuvenates your skin and gives a lighter look. Repeat this two times a week. You can also add few drops of almond oil if your skin is dry.
2. Cucumber and Sugar Face Pack
This is a quite unique combination. Mix the mashed cucumber slices with a dash of sugar and refrigerate them for some time. When it becomes cool, apply the paste on your face and leave it for 10 minutes. While washing it off, you can also scrub a little. This gives an instant glow to your skin and feels fresh!
3. Curd and Gram Flour
This is suitable if you want to remove your tan. Mix curd and gram flour in equal proportion and apply it on your face, let the pack dry and then rinse off with warm water. Curd and gram both are known for their skin whitening properties to recover the essential glow from the sun damaged skin. You can use this on your hands and legs too.
4. Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth) and Lemon Face Pack
Add 2 teaspoons of multani mitti with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and few drops of rose water. Apply this mixture all over your face and stay until it dries. Rinse off with cold water. This is better suited for dry skin. Repeat this for once or twice a week.
5. Aloe Vera and Lemon Pack
For tan removal, mix 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel with 5 to 6 drops of lemon juice. Apply this face pack and leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse with water. It is recommended to have aloe vera planted in your garden or pot so that you can use it fresh each time you use the face pack.
6. Egg and Honey Mask
An egg is rich in nutrients which is beneficial for the skin. Add one egg white with a tablespoon of lemon juice in a bowl and mix them well. Apply it on your face and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash with lukewarm water. This allows keeping your skin tight and oil free.
7. Egg and Lemon Mask
If your skin is acne prone, mix one egg white with 1 teaspoon of lemon and few drops of rose water and mix them well. Rinse with cold water. This will help you prevent acne and breakouts while keeping your face oil free and glowing.
8. Strawberry and Lemon Face Pack
This is suited for an oily and dull skin. Mash few strawberries in a bowl, add a tablespoon of yoghurt and few drops of lemon juice and honey. Apply the paste and leave it for 15 minutes or until it dries completely. Wash with water.
Enjoy your summer with happy and healthy skin!
