For a beautiful and flawless skin it is necessary that you take care of it. If you do not want to go to beauty parlours for regular facials then you can try the following face packs which you can make at home. A face pack not only cleanses your skin but it also helps to maintain the firmness of your skin and its balance. Following face packs are categorized for different skin types.
Face Pack for Oily skin:
Oily skin is caused by over-active glands, which produce a substance called Asebum, a naturally healthy skin lubricant. When the skin produces too much sebum, it becomes thick and heavy in texture. It needs a thorough cleansing routine to remove the surface grime and unclog blocked pores.
One teaspoon of Brandy.
Two teaspoons of breadcrumbs.
Two teaspoons of fuller's earth.
Mash six strawberries with a teaspoon of Brandy, two spoons of breadcrumbs, two spoons of fuller's earth and a few drops of rose water. Mix well and apply a thick layer on the face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes.
This pack rejuvenates, tightens and exfoliates your skin and brings that shine and radiance. Since strawberries have Vitamin C and a certain acidic properties they leave the skin sparkling clean. Breadcrumbs help to exfoliate dead skin while fuller's earth will tighten the pores and brandy helps in adding some glow.
Face Pack for Dry skin:
Dry skin usually results when skin fails to produce enough sebum to maintain a naturally lubricated surface. Dry skin often appears coarse, tight, dull and flaky, with visible lines and wrinkles. Hence dry skin needs extra moisturizing.
Two teaspoons of oatmeal.
Four tablespoons of full cream milk.
Two teaspoons of china clay.
Juice of half lemon.
One mashed avocado.
Make a pack with a mixture of 10 almonds, two spoons oatmeal, four tablespoons of full cream milk, two spoons china clay, juice of half a lemon, and one mashed avocado. Apply on face and leave it for 20 minutes. Dampen cotton wool with cold milk and wipe it off. Splash your face with cold water and apply a light moisturizer.
This pack will help to maintain the balance of your skin. Oatmeal is very good since it acts like an exfoliater.
Face Pack for Combination Skin:
This type of skin is usually oily on the nose and forehead and dry around the eyes and cheeks. If you have more than one skin type on your face, it is wise to use products containing different ingredients to treat the areas differently. Cleanse the center zone with an astringent while dab the rest of the face with moisturizer.
