DIY – Face Brightening Mask


They say that everything that is fit for consumption  can be applied on the face, well with the exception of chillies ofcourse. I love pampering my skin with home remedies, so I am always experimenting with different ingredients from the kitchen & I came up with this:

DIY Tamarind Face Mask+care skin

  • 3 pieces Tamarind
  • 2 tsp Tomato juice
  • 1 tsp Sandalwood powder
  • 1 tsp Yoghurt
  • 2 tsp Multani mitti
  • 2 tsp Rose water
1. Clean the tamarind pieces in a bowl of warm water.
2. Then soak them in a bowl of rose water for 1- 2 hours.

3. Later, mash the tamarind pieces with a fork or a motar & pestle.
4. Squeeze out the paste with a strainer for a fine paste & mix tomato juice.
Add tomato juice to tamarind paste+facemask
5. Add yoghurt, multani mitti & sandalwood powder, mix well.
Add yoghurt, multani mitti & sandalwood powder+skin care treatment
6. Wash your face & apply the mask allover the face, & lightly massage
in a circular motion & leave on for 20 minutes.

7 Once the mask dries up, sprinkle some rose water & lightly massage
again. Wash off with tepid water. Follow up with a moisturiser.
NOTE: Do not apply pure tamarind pulp directly as it may irritate sensitive skin due to it’s acidic nature. Preferably use this mask in the evening, or follow it up with a sunblock during the day.
Skin Benefits of Tamarind:-
Tamarinds contain Tartaric acid which is a powerful anti-oxidant, they are also rich in Vitamin C, AHA’s & contain anti-bacterial properties. Tamarinds help slough off dead skin, lighten scars & increase skins luminosity. They also have water binding properties which aids in hydration & moisture balance keeping the skin soft & supple. The presence of weak acids has a glycolic peel effect, which disinfects skin & inhibits the occurrence of acne. Including tamarind in your skin care routine will help you achieve bright, smooth & even skin.

Do try it & let me know how it worked for you.


    • Oh yes, just like lemon tamarind too is acidic, so girls with sensitive skin must do a patch test. Probably they could reduce the amount of tamarind & skip tomato juice.

  1. I heard Tamarind is gud for skin. But for sensitive skin it can be little irritating. I have dry sensitive skin but anyways i ll try it once to see how my skin takes it 🙂

    Nice review Niharika 🙂

    Mujhe Smiley kyu nehi dikhraha h 🙁 Is that only me ??

    • Hi Sushmita, do try it, but do a patch test to check if it would suit you. It’s more suitable for combi & oily skin types. Hope it works for you too:)
      Thank you 😀
      Your not alone, mujhe bhi smileys nahi dikhrahe hai:(
