Monsoon care is not a difficult task!

The moist weather and rains tend to bring out all kinds of acnes, rashes and skin allergies. But, we present some special face masks here, which will give you that ethereal glow…

1. Mash a banana & beat in a teaspoon of salad or vegetable oil. Brush it on the face & leave it on for 20 minutes till it dries. Then rinse it off. This recipe is best suited for dry to normal skin.

2. Mix one beaten egg white, 1 tablespoon yogurt and multani mitti (fuller’s earth) and make a paste. Apply on the face till it dries. Rinse off with clear water. Use twice a week. This is a good toning formula, best suited for dry skin.

3. Mix together multani mitti (Fuller’s Earth), gram flour and Sandalwood powder in equal quantities. Store in an air-tight container. For applying, mix one tablespoon of the powder in water to make a paste. Apply evenly on face and leave it to dry and then rinse with cold water. This home-made face mask will help remove flakes and dust. This face mask can be used by people with oily skin.


4. Use seasonal fruits as facial masks because they are very effective moisturising agents. For making fruit face mask, crush the pulp or squeeze in a blender and apply as quickly as possible. Papayas are useful for blackhead-infested and blotchy or sallow skin. Cucumber is cooling and improves a dull and greasy complexion. Watermelon juice applied to the face and neck freshens up the skin. All these masks should be left on the face for 15 minutes and then rinsed off with cool water. Drink a lot of water to replace the liquid lost through perspiration. It is important to nourish the skin from within.
