Here are some packs we highly recommend, and what they do!
Avocado and Olive Oil Pack For Nourished Skin
Avocado is not only moisturising, but it's also rich in Vitamin E and perfect for dry-skinned beauties. Take a ripe avocado, mash it and mix it with a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply this mask on your face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes and wash it off to reveal nourished skin that glows!
Besan, Curd & Honey Pack for Reviving Dull Skin
This one is an all-time popular pack, which is good to beat dull skin. Honey also works on dry skin very well. Mix 4 teaspoons of besan with an equal amount of curd and one teaspoon honey. Make a thick and pack out of it and apply on the skin. Leave it for 15-20 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water.
Sandalwood, Coconut Oil & Rose Water Pack for a Glow
Sandalwood not only moisturises, but treats dry patches on the skin and calms irritated skin. Coconut oil is an elixir for dry skin as it is, and rose water lends a subtle glow! Mix 1 tablespoon sandalwood powder, 1/4th teaspoon coconut oil and 1 tablespoon rose water- combine them and apply on the face for 15 minutes. Was off the pack with cold water and can be applied thrice a week.
Oatmeal, Rice Flour & Honey Pack for Exfoliation
Rice flour is a great exfoliator, and helps reduce flakiness. Oatmeal is great for calming the skin, and honey is moisturising. Combine 1 tablespoon rice flour and oatmeal, add 2 teaspoons honey and apply on the face for 15-20 mins before washing it off. This can be applied once or twice a week to combat the dryness.
Green Tea & Rice Flour Pack for Exfoliation
Green tea calms the skin and controls sebum production, and rice flour helps in exfoliation. Take half a cup of water, brew 3 teaspoons of green tea and mix it with an equal portion of rice flour after it cools down. You can even add a few drops of lemon to get a thicker paste. Put this on the face for 20 minutes and later wash it off with cold water.
Potato & Lemon Pack for Blemish-Prone Skin
This one can really help get rid of those pesky blemishes that oily skin is prone to! Take a small potato, peel it and grate it. Add one tablespoon of lemon juice to it. Apply this on the face for 20 mins and then wash it off. Easy and really makes a difference!
Aloe Vera & Cucumber Pack for Calming and Toning
This one is great to calm down irritated skin and tone the skin too! Both are magic ingredients for skin, and combining them really works! Grate some cucumber and squeeze to extract the juice. Take 2 teaspoons of aloe vera gel (natural is better), add 1 teaspoon cucumber juice to it and you could even add a few drops of rose water, which is totally optional. Apply this and wait for 15 mins before washing it off with cold water. Repeat this once or twice a week.
Egg White, Gram Flour & Multani Mitti Pack for Tightening & Exfoliation
This one might be the stinkiest, but trust us when we tell you it works! Egg white tightens the skin, is good to treat blemishes and gram flour is a natural exfoliator. Multani Mitti or Fuller's Earth is magical for oily skin, capable of decreasing sebum. Take 1 tablespoon of each, mix some honey into it (optional), apply for 20 minutes and wash off. Do not put this pack more than once a week.
Milk, Honey, Lemon Juice & Almond Oil Pack for Brightening
Milk has lactic acid that acts as a skin lightening agent, brightening the skin. Lemon juice lightens blemishes while honey helps moisturise the skin. Almond oil is all the nourishment your dry cheeks need! Take 1 tablespoon of milk, mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and apply on the whole face. Then rub some drops of diluted lemon juice to the T zone and rub the almond oil on the cheeks. Leave this on for 20 mins and then wash off. You can do this once a week.
Aloe Vera & Papaya Pack for a Nourished Glow
Papaya is very good for the skin- the enzymes in it help in exfoliation, which is great for combination skin. Aloe vera gives the nourishment that this kind of skin needs. Take 2-3 pieces of ripe papaya, mash it and add 2 teaspoons of aloe vera gel to it. Add some rose water to get a nice consistency and apply it for 10 minutes before washing it off. This can be applied once or twice a week.
Oatmeal & Yoghurt Pack for Exfoliation & Soothing
Oatmeal is great to calm down the skin, and exfoliation as well! Yoghurt gives the moisturisation that the skin needs. Mix curd with grounded oats. Scrub this on your face in a circular motion to exfoliate, more on the T zone and less on the cheeks. Wash this off with plain water, and this can be done once a week.
Banana & Lemon Juice Pack for Balancing the Skin
Combination skin can get really dry on the cheeks and oily in the T-zone, and this once can help balance that. Banana is moisturising, and lemon juice helps bring down the oiliness. Grate some cucumber, then squeeze to extract the juice. Add some mashed banana and 1 teaspoon honey to it and apply to it. Let it dry for 15 mins and wash off with cold water. Repeat this once a week.
