Summers are here and so is dull and irritable skin! To feel fresh and allow your skin to breathe, here are a few age-old skin remedies which take no time to prepare.
Refreshing Mint and Turmeric face pack
Grind a handful of mint leaves, add a pinch of turmeric powder and a few drops of lukewarm or cold water. Apply the paste to your skin. Leave it for about 10 to 15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm or cold water.
Soothing Cucumber and Sugar face pack
Mash 3-4 cucumber slices and add a pinch of sugar to it. Refrigerate the mixture for some time. Once it has cooled, apply the paste on your face. You may leave it for 10 – 15 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm or cold water.
Curd and Gram Flour de- tan face pack
Rejuvenate your sun damaged skin with this de-tan curd and gram flour pack. Mix them in equal parts and apply to your face or any tanned area. Once the pack has dried, rinse with lukewarm water.
Tomato pulp face pack for oily and tanned skin
Extract tomato pulp from one tomato and add in it a drop of honey. Apply the paste on areas where you want to de-tan and leave for about 15 minutes. Wash it with cold water.
Aloe Vera and Rose Water face mist
Good face mists are usually pricy and during summers you wish like spraying it all over every 10 minutes! So, here’s a face mist that would suit all skin types and pockets. Mix one part aloe vera gel and three parts rose water in a spray bottle and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Shake well and you have a perfect face mist! You may either take fresh aloe vera extract for this or use the aloe vera gel available in the market. Make small batches as it lasts for 7-8 days when kept refrigerated.
