Exfoliating Mask by Sakchhi

“This mask really helps brighten the skin, fades dark spots, possibly removes acne scars and definitely gets rid of excess dirt. It can be used twice a week.”

Ingredients

  • Half tablespoon lemon juice
  • One tablespoon tomato juice
  • One tablespoon honey
  • Sugar as required (refined sugar)

Method: Put all the ingredients together in a glass bowl and mix well. Wash your face with lukewarm water and apply the mixture with a facial mask brush or cotton. Leave on for 20 minutes. Afterwards, scrub your face in a circular motion. Wash off.

Benefits

  • Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and citric acid which has antibacterial properties that help lighten and brighten the skin.
  • Tomato increases fairness, balances the skin’s pH level, and also treats sunburn and skin irritations.
  • Honey has antioxidant properties which is a complexion booster and helps moisturise.
  • Sugar helps remove dead skin and is smoother than a salt scrub.

Summer Skin Care Tips

  1. Never forget to use a facial toner after washing your face. If you decide to head out during the day do not forget to apply SPF which has PA++.
  2. Make H2O your friend. Wipe all makeup before going to bed. Keep your phone sanitised as it transfers bacteria to your face.
  3. Use aloe vera gel as a night mask to soothe your skin.
