Turmeric as we all know has been the oldest cure for any skin problem. It’s anti-bacterial properties helps you fight your pimple and acne, blackheads problems, turmeric helps you enhance your skin tone, giving your skin a natural glow, and it also removes suntan and other blemishes.
Gram flour again as we all know, works as an excellent scrub. Leaving you with a squeaky clean skin, free of oil and dirt.
Tomato, removes sun-tan, acts as a natural astringent and tightens the pores, brightens the skin tone, fights pimples, marks and dark circles.
And honey moisturises your skin, maintains the PH balance of your skin, keeping it hydrated.
For this you will need:
- Tomato pulp 2-3 tbsp( just cut a tomato in half and scoop out the pulp)

You will need:
- Orange peel paste 5-6tbsp( take the fresh peel and put them through the grinder)

Orange contains Vit C and and citric acid. It helps to promote growth of new cells. Acts as a mild scrub, helps fight pimples ,removes marks as well and like lemon acts as a natural bleach. I Honey as we know it moisturises your skin. Since orange peel contains citric acid, it might have a drying effect on certain skins so honey basically balances that drying effect.
