I just can’t do without this Multani mitti (fuller’s earth) face pack in summer, it’s a must for my extremely oily and acne-prone skin. Another natural ingredient which I can’t live without in summer is sandalwood (chandan). I dust sandalwood powder all over my skin to get relief from prickly heat and rashes. Sometimes I pummel a small piece of sandalwood on a flat stone to extract its paste. Then I add a drop of honey to it and smear it all over my face to rejuvenate my greasy skin. Recently I purchased this sandalwood face pack. It costs less than $3 and besides sandalwood it contains several other natural ingredients like mineral clay and sandalwood oil.
I cleansed my face with Garnier Naturals’ Deep Pore Exfoliating face wash to get rid of all the grime and dead cells and then carefully opened the box containing this sandal face pack. Umm, it smelt divine. Good enough to eat. :) I then spread out this paste all over my face and neck leaving the undereye area. I experienced a slight stinging sensation and that seemed okay with me as the pack was doing its job. I left it for about 20 minutes and splashed cool water over my face to rinse it off. Then I applied a moisturizer. And I must say that I am quite happy with it – the pack quickly absorbed all the excess oil, grease and grime to reveal the fresh and glowing skin underneath. These days, I am using it thrice a week.
If you wish you can even try this Sandalwood Clay Face Masque, available at Amazon.
