Most of us have few herbs like curry leaves, mint, tulsi etc growing in our balcony that we use in our kitchen but have you ever tried using them in skincare? Recently I made this face mask with all the ingredients from the balcony and turmeric from the kitchen.
Are you ready to whip an easy, cheap and eco friendly face mask?
FACE MASK FROM YOUR KITCHEN GARDEN
This mask is suitable for all skin types. It will not only cool and brighten your skin but also heal acne and other minor skin issues.
Don’t worry if you don’t have all these herbs, obviously you can replace or skip any of these.
- 5-6 Curry Leaves
- 3-4 Tulsi Leaves
- pinch of Turmeric
- 3-4 Mint Leaves
Grind all these into a paste using a grinder. Add few drops of water if needed. Apply this paste all over your face and neck (also body if you want) and wash it off once it is semi dry. Tone and moisturize.
- Curry Leaves- Curry leaves soothe and cool the acne-prone skin. They fight off free radicals in the skin and contribute in keeping the skin’s texture healthy and firm.
- Tulsi Leaves- Tulsi can be used to treat acne and scars, skin infections, lighten dark spots, and improve skin texture.
- Mint Leaves- The juice obtained from the leaves is an excellent skin cleanser. It soothes the skin and helps cure infections and itchiness. In addition to being a good way to reduce pimples, it can even relieve some of the symptoms of acne.
- Turmeric- Turmeric is a great complexion enhancer.
