Hi beautiful peeps! ❤❤❤
Hope you all are doing great! 🙂
Okay, so don’t you sometimes feel that you are doing more harm than good to your skin by putting dozens of chemical laden products on it?? 🙁
Well, I do! Sometimes I feel so sad… Everything we use ( Umm.. most of them!) are either laden with chemicals like beauty and skincare products or polluted somehow like the food we eat, the air we breathe in! (Dont you think so?) 🙁
What will be the cumulative effect of it on our body? 🙁 But then, we cannot do much to change it.. Except that we can actually easily replace a few cosmetic products by organic homemade recipes.. ❤
But the problem with most of the DIY beauty recipes is that not all of us have some of their key ingredients like papaya or avocado or peaches with us every time we want to apply some face pack! 😀
Today I am going to write about a Homemade Face Pack cum Scrub recipe that has benefited me a lot and is so damn simple and easy… Plus, we all have these ingredients in our kitchens and you can store it for months in your refrigerator! 😀
OATMEAL, GRAM FLOUR AND TURMERIC D.I.Y. FACE PACK CUM SCRUB
OATMEAL: It soothes irritated, sunburnt, inflamed, itchy skin. It has “saponins” which helps with acne, removes dirt and oil effectively. Oatmeal can also act as a mild scrub, removing dead cells and also it locks in moisture.
GRAM FLOUR: It helps in removing the tan due to its skin whitening properties. It also helps with acne prone and oily skin. It might help with pigmentation to some extent as well!
TURMERIC: Turmeric has anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties and helps with acne and oil secretion. It also gives a blemish free, youthful and radiant skin.
1. Take 1 tbsp. full of OATMEAL in a grinder and grind it into a rough, grainy powder. Remove it in a bowl.
2. Add 1 tbsp. GRAM FLOUR in the bowl.
3. Add 1/2 tsp. Organic TURMERIC powder in the bowl.
4. Mix the ingredients properly.
5. You can either add milk or curd or even water to make it a paste. If you have very dry skin, add few drops of olive oil or honey into it.
6. Apply it evenly on cleansed face and neck and leave it on for 20 mins. or till it dries up.
7. Wet your face and rub in circular motion till the pack cum scrub comes off. Wash properly with water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Hope it helps! ❤❤❤
