Mix together some grinded rice, curd and a few drops of rose oil. Apply the scrub to your face and allow it to dry before washing off with water. This moisturising scrub gently removes dead cells, leaving the skin soft. Best suited for dry and sensitive skin.
Egg whites temporarily tighten skin. One major benefit of egg whites? They act as an astringent that help reduce acne.
Potato contains natural bleaching agents that lighten skin. Grate a raw potato and strain it to extract the juice to apply on face for 15 minutes to reduce pigmentation and dark circles. You can also slice raw potato and place it on your eyelids for 15 minutes everyday to achieve the same results.
Mix sandalwood powder and rose water to form a paste, then add a pinch of turmeric and apply the pack to your face. Leave on for 20 minutes and wash off. Turmeric lends a natural glow to your face and sandalwood soothes skin.
