For every working woman, mornings are the most engaging and meddlesome part of the day. Unfortunately, that’s the only time that we should ideally invest-in to get ready for the long day. Considering the short time, we need to indulge in best makeup and skin care routines that not only require less effort (read time) but also are more effective. Recently, I have experimented with fuller’s earth (multani mitti) and honey to make a good face pack. This homemade pack just requires five minutes of preparation, which I do sideways along with other kitchen chores. The results are just awesome, and making this pack does not even disturb the morning regimen 😉
Ingredients of ‘Homemade fuller’s earth and honey face pack for soft and glowing skin’
1) 2 spoons of Fuller’s earth (Multani mitti).
2) Lemon Juice.
3) 1 spoon of Honey.
4) 2 tea spoons of Sandalwood powder (Optional).
Preparation of homemade Fuller’s earth and honey face pack
– Take fuller’s earth and honey in a bowl, and mix them well.
– Now, add lemon juice and sandalwood powder (if available).
– Stir the mixture with a spoon to make a paste. If it is thick then keep on adding few drops of rose water and stirring until all the ingredients mix up well and make a smooth paste.
– Put the mixture in refrigerator for 2-3 minutes.
Application of homemade Fuller’s earth and honey face pack
-After 2-3 minutes, apply this pack evenly on your face and neck, preferably with a face pack brush.
-Put on a thick layer on your face to avoid getting it quickly dry.
-Keep the pack on for 15-20 minutes and rinse off with normal water.
-When removing the pack make sure that it is still damp.
-Please do not wait until it dries out as Fuller’s earth (multani mitti) if made to dry can cause wrinkles.
Benefits of Fuller’s earth and honey face pack
Fuller’s earth is rich in minerals, and has an excellent absorbent property. When applied on the face it soaks impurities and increases blood circulation.
Honey is an antibacterial and a healer. It is being used for over centuries as a skin healer and beauty product. So because of its antibacterial properties it is believed to provide relief to acne prone skin.
Lemon is natural bleach. It minimizes oil secretion by glands and helps in preventing skin breakouts. Recently, a separate detailed post on beauty benefits of lemon is already shared.You can check that out here.
Rose water makes the skin soft and supple.
Overall, this homemade pack being devoid of all the chemicals, makes my skin smooth and soft. Every time I use this pack my skin becomes radiant and happy.
For oily skin, it can be applied on alternate days and for dry skin, weekly or biweekly. As I have oily skin so I apply it every other day 🙂
