For the last few months, I got many emails requesting DIY posts. I did a DIY post last year and it was liked by many. I still swear by this toner for my acne prone skin! Recently I had been traveling a lot and took least care of my skin. My oily, combination skin became all the more oilier (read very weird) and finally I made up my mind to make something that controls oil on my face and makes it clearer! So in today's post I will be sharing with you how I make face pack using ingredients that are very easily available.
Fuller's Earth (I used Khadi Herbal Sandalwood Face Pack. It is basically fuller's earth pack that contains neem, tulsi, sandalwood powder, turmeric etc that are superb for acne prone skin. You can use any fullers earth of your choice!)
Rose Powder (I had used Sathyam Rose Petal Powder)
Rose Water (I had again used the rose water from the same brand Sathyam. You can use rose water of any brand!)
Lemon (You will only need half lemon)
Mix 1 teaspoon of fuller's earth, rose powder and rose water respectively, pour lemon juice and mix them with rose water. The consistency should neither be thick nor thin. I added enough rose water so it is easy to apply the pack on my clean skin and there is no tugging needed! Let it sit on the skin for 10 minutes and rinse it off with water. Do it twice a week and you will see the results.
Fuller's Earth absorbs excess oil from the skin and makes it oil free. It prevents blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. Rose petal powder refreshes the skin and gives a beautiful glow with regular usage. I particularly loved this brand Sathyam. Rose Water has anti inflammatory properties that soothes the skin and helps in reducing irritation, pimples and acne! Lemon has antibacterial and bleaching properties that reduces blemishes, pimples and acne. It also controls oil and makes skin clean and clear!
I apply this face mask twice a week and with regular usage I can definitely see a noticeable difference to my skin. It looks clean, clearer, less oil and of course glowing. Due to the presence of rose powder and rose water, it does not take of all the oil from your skin. My skin does not feel dry post wash. It reduces acne, pimples and blackheads. It also keeps oil in control! If you have oily, acne and combination skin then I would highly recommend you to try this homemade face mask for oil free and clear skin! As I am a lazy bum, I prefer using ingredients that are easily and readily available in the market!
