How to use this face pack?

  • Although the chances of irritation with this face pack are minimal, we recommend you do a quick patch test in case you have a sensitive skin type. Apply a small amount of face pack near your jaw line. If it is well tolerated, then you can proceed to apply it to the rest of your face.
  • Apply the face pack on your face in an upward direction and leave until dry.
  • To remove, wet the face pack and massage it thoroughly but gently to scrub the dead skin. Then, rinse your face thoroughly to see the natural glow on your face.

 

How often can I use this face pack?

This face pack imparts an instant clean and smooth look with the golden glow of turmeric. This must try homemade face pack could be the best option. It is also safe to use once or twice a week on a regular basis. 

As a dermatologist and expert in skin care, I would like to bring to your notice that do not try a home remedy just because it worked your friend or you have that particular ingredient at home. You might have noticed that I told you to use oats for dry skin and chickpea flour for oily in above face pack as well. This is because oats are moisturising and chickpea flour is oil absorbing.

Therefore, the choice of both skin care product and home remedy depends on 2 factors:

  • your skin type: oily, dry or combination.
  • your key skin: pigmentation, wrinkles or acne.

You can take advantage of our product finder tool to find the best product/remedy based on your skin type and concern. Well. using a wrong face pack can be more damaging because the ingredients stay on your skin for a prolonged time, therefore, use the table given below to find the best face pack for your skin:

 

Acne

Pigmentation

Ageing

Oily skin

Homemade anti-acne face pack for oily skin

Skin lightening face pack for oily skin 

 

Anti-aging face pack for oily skin

 

Combination skin

Homemade anti-acne face pack for combination skin

 

Skin lightening face mask for combination skin

 

Anti-aging face pack for combination skin

 

Dry skin

See dermatologist because most anti-acne ingredients can irritate dry skin

Skin lightening face pack for dry skin 

 

Anti-aging face pack for dry skin

 

I hope you would choose your skin care product and home remedies more wisely and not treat your skin as a guinea pig.  If you are not sure of your skin needs, then watch my tutorial on minimal skin care and maximum beauty.
