Eid celebrations mean spending long hours with family and friends. People wear their best outfits and groom themselves up to look their best. Ladies love to wear complementing makeup with their eid outfits which usually means a good amount of chemicals staying on your skin for long hours. Thus, it is time to get all those chemicals and oil out to give your skin a fresh start. However, you don’t need to worry about long treatments or visit the parlor. You can try the listed remedies at home with herbal skincare products to get back your glowing skin:
- Chandanglowing skin mask:Chandan (sandalwood) had been traditionally used for skin protection. It leaves the skin free of blackheads and spots. Chandan is also known for its ability to treat sun-tan and uneven skin tone. Moreover, it is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-ageing agent. For a homemade mask, mix one tablespoon of sandalwood and turmeric powder with three tablespoons of rose water to make a smooth paste. Apply it on your face and wash off after 20 minutes. The magical properties of Chandan can be found in powder form at Aarong. The paste must be left for 15-20 minutes on skin for radiance and then washed off with luke warm water.
- Turmeric tan-removing mask: Turmeric is known for its magical benefits to skin. Turmeric masks are an integral part of the bride’s wedding preparations, making her look spotless and glamorous on her big day. Turmeric contains a phytochemical called curcumin, which can benefit the skin, both inside and out. It also helps to purify the blood. This face pack for tanned skin works with a combination of bleaching and scrubbing. Mix 2 tablespoons of besan (gram flour), a pinch of turmeric, 1 tablespoon of milk, and 1 tablespoon of crushed orange peel in a bowl with cold rose water. Apply on clean skin and let it dry for 20 minutes and remove the pack by scrubbing gently. Apply this pack once every two days for effective exfoliation and tan removal.
- Neem anti-acne mask: Neem contains antibacterial and antifungal properties that penetrate deep into the skin layers, cleanse skin of impurities, shrink pores and dry out pimples. Furthermore, neem has antiseptic properties. It works to soothe inflamed skin, controls oil production and treats acne. Mix a tablespoon of besan (gram flour), with a teaspoon of Aarong herbalneem powder and add required amount of yogurt to make a smooth paste. Cleanse your face and apply the mask. Let it sit on your skin for 15 minutes and then wash off. This will help you get clear, acne free skin.
- Multani anti-mark mask:Multanimitti(Fuller's Clay) is widely known for its absorbing qualities and is particularly recommended for oily skin. It also washes away toxins. As a result, it reduces the occurrence of pimples and blackheads/whiteheads. It also reveals a fresh, blemish-free skin. If you are noticing marks on your face, take a spoonful of Aarong herbalmultani powder along with some sandalwood powder and mix it with two spoons of rose water (use milk if you have dry skin, instead of rose water). Apply this paste on your face and wash it with water after drying. Scrubs can also be used to remove dead skin cells. Aarong herbal face scrubs consist of various herbal ingredients which are very effective for skin exfoliation.
Care must be taken so that these ingredients/face-packs are not used near the eyes and lips as they may cause irritation when in contact with such sensitive areas. In order to match your skin type, remember to combine them with milk/yoghurt (for dry skin) or rose-water/plain water (for oily skin). Those with sensitive skin must perform a patch-test before applying any of the ingredients directly on skin.
