Ask IMBB Gang

Diksha asks:

Hi IMBB Gang!

Must say how much i have come to adore the blog! Need some home remedies for dull and lifeless skin! I have a combination oily and dry skin and have acne marks (moderate) on my cheeks. Of late, I have again started experiencing a return of pimples which have a white head. But my main concern is how tired lifeless and dull my face looks all the time.

I use a rosewater and sandalwood face pack sometimes. Also use Himalaya’s Multani Mitti and Walnut face pack thrice a week. Never use any makeup.

Any home remedies?

Thanks :)

Multani mitti+ lemon + honey sucks out the oil from the face and adds brightness to face, try it :)

I use Bean+Vitamin E Oil+Almond Oil+a pinch of Turmeric Powder(Haldi)+Glycerine+Cinnamon Powder(for acne)+2 drops of honey once in a week. And that’s why my skin is glowing :)

No marks face pack http://makeupandbeauty.com/nomarks-face-pack-review/ helped me a lot.
Apart from that apply a mix of honey+milk+aloe vera gel and steam your face with that on. Apply ice cube afterwards. Do this twice a week. Really cleans out pores and helps with pimples.

And I mix No Marks face pack with milk instead of water. Used it once a week.
