||even well thought-out to be good for
prevention of pimples in teenagers.
Next was, “what is the difference
between face packs and face masks”?
Face packs are softer and more
absorbent than face masks. They
improve circulation of blood as well
as cleanse and make the skin feel
firm. Because of their softness, they
allow the skin to breathe more and
are gentle than masks. They can be
left on longer, even till the time you
don’t feel relatively harder to smile.
The star ingredients of face pack is
multani mitti, chandan, cucumber,
egg etc. available in market and if you
really want to go natural, then add on
to the above besan, kesar, haldi and
milk. The natural ingredients
penetrate deep into the skin and
make it glow. Ingredients like
chandan and milk remove the dead
cells. Kesar and multtani mitti
enhance the complexion by altering
the melanin formation in the skin.
Haldi extracts give blemish free skin.
Adding rose water is something which
gives a pinkish glow to your skin.
One more query which came up
was, “How to choose face pack in
accordance to the skin types"? Face
packs have no harmful chemicals so
hey are safe for all skin types. If you
have oily skin, go for a clay or mud
pack to absorb excess grease. For dry
skin, try a creamy, hydrating pack. If
you have sensitive skin, use a light, gel
pack and if you have combination
skin, you may need more than one
pack to spot-treat different problems.
The right usage: - wash your face
with water, pat dry. Make a paste of
the face pack powder mixing with
milk and rose water. Apply the face
pack evenly on your face, avoiding
eyes and mouth. Let it dry for
sometime say 15 to 20 minutes. Wash
it off with cool water and discover
clear, glowing skin.
Here are some tips which you
might be hearing for ages from your
mom or grandmother but these tips
are really effective such as to avoid
spicy, oily and junk foods which is
irresistible at your age, I know. It’s
also very important to drink plenty of
water and fresh fruits, sleeping at least
for 8 hours a day and exercise
regularly. Hoping that this summer
you won’t be facing the dry skin
problem and enjoy healthy glowing
