DIY & Cosmetic Face Packs For Dry And Dull Winter Skin
Winters mean cold all around but still what the skin needs stays the same. You can reduce the quantum but not the quality of the skincare. I am sure most of us would want to do away with this regime but it is like playing with fire, as even before the summer season drops in, our skin would definitely start complaining of not being cared for during winters. So it is better to continue it and stay healthy.
I will suggest you some homemade packs which are definitely worth trying as we can apply them only for a shorter duration and have our skin as healthy as possible.
Milk and honey face pack
Water seems to be an enemy during winters, you can try milk instead
This pack is very good for a fairer skin and also nurtures your skin especially facial skin for a better glow. Mix one tablespoon of milk or milk powder to one table spoon of honey and one table spoon of lime juice. Apply this pack on your face for 15 minutes and wash. You will be elated with the result in a very few applications.
Yogurt and oatmeal face pack
This is another very good face pack which is good for the skin. I suggest you to use normal temperature curd for a less cold application. Prepare a paste using one table spoon of yoghurt or curd and mix it with one table spoon of oatmeal. This would act as exfoliator also and help you get rid of the dead skin which gets accumulated very often during winters. You can also add tomato juice for that added effect. Apply it for 15 minutes and rinse off.
Banana face pack
This one is for the skin that needs tightening. Mix one almost ripe banana to 1 tablespoon of curd and 1 table spoon honey. Mix it well and apply on your face. Leave it to dry for 15 minutes before you wash it off.
Dry orange peel face pack
This is another one for skin tightening. For this you need to dry out orange peels and powder them. You can store them for use till a long time as a scrub. All you need is to mix 1 table spoon of the orange peel powder to 1 table spoon yoghurt and leave it to dry on your face for 15 minutes. You can wash it off with little lukewarm water. This pack would also impart glow to your face which can otherwise go dull during winters.
Saffron and milk pack
Saffron or Kesar does not need an introduction to a beauty enthusiast. We all know that it is very good for whitening of skin. It is also very effective on acne and skin breakouts. Applying it with milk can add to glow to your skin apart from cleansing it from within. Try this pack for 15 minutes after slowly caressing it on your skin for 2 minutes. Take one spoon of milk and kesar each.
All these face packs are good for drying and dull skin which happens to all of us during winters. Do try these homemade packs for best results. Do try these and share your experiences.
There are also some cosmetic readymade face packs which can also help you if you do not have time for preparing the above DIY masks.
