Lemon Peel Dry Face Mask – Do It Yourself

Hello all,

First and foremost, I wish you all a very happy Diwali. May the Almighty bestow his love and kindness upon all of us and everybody else in the world and make this world a peaceful place to live in :)

I have been busy with Diwali preparations these days. Not doing much, just decorating things. Actually, I am making my own diyas (they are so expensive here), so that is taking most of my time. Then, have been trying to make lanterns (we don’t get lanterns here, so no question of getting a tea-light or floating candles), but I still love this place.  Okay guys, today, I am showing you a face mask that I have been loving these days. I apply it almost everyday and it is working like wonders on me.

Lemon Peel Dry Face Mask Do It Yourself

Things you need for this face mask:

Dried lemon peel powder, malai (milk cream), honey and banana.

How To Make:

1. It is very simple to make.
2. Take a tea spoon of dried lemon peel powder in a plate. Take a small slice of banana. Add honey to it. Also, add a bit of malai.
3. Mix all the three together.

4. The mixture can be a little gooey. I mean it may not set on face properly. So, you may add a little besan to it if you wish to. Or else, you can change the consistency of the ingredients the way you like it. I want a thick layer of mask on my face :D

5. Apply and let it dry.
6. Wash it off.

This mask works well for two reasons:

It has malai which is heavenly moisturising. It also has dried lemon peel powder that is bleaching in nature and also has oil-balancing properties. Thus the mask works well in giving just the right amount of moisture. Also, honey and banana act as moisture balancing agents and make skin smooth.  The mask will make your skin smooth, glowing and hydrated.  It gets hot here in Andamans during noon and thus I switch on AC around 11 AM and stay in the AC for about 4-5 hours each day. This strips off my skin’s moisture even though I apply TBS Vit C moisturising cream every morning. Soon, I find my skin a little stretched, but since the time I am applying this face mask, I do not even feel the need to apply the moisturizer and it does not get dry even in the AC environment.

I hope you guys like it and it is your holy grail face mask this winter :D

Note: If you do not have dried lemon peel powder, you must make it for this season. Whatever lemons you use, do not throw away the peels. Instead dry them off in shade and finally grind it. How to grind? Sorry, I do not know.   My mum-in-law did it for me! :D

I wish you all a bright Diwali this year, just like this sun rise that I spotted this morning from right next to my home. Didn’t I tell you I am in love with this place? :D You must visit Andamans.

If you have sensitive skin then maybe you can apply lemon peel powder with milk and banana and honey. I would suggest do a small test first.

It really works well. And since I moved to Andamans.. I have started enjoying making things by myself. Its a good stress buster and gives an altogether different feel. :D

nice mask..but i have sensitive acne prone thing..even curd breaks me out..malai to ..!!!

do u think i can use honey alone?

Surabhi November 12, 2012 at 8:20 pm

honey is said to have anti-bacterial properties.. I sometimes put it in my eyes for proper eye cleaning :D hihihi and I think curd breaks out more than malai.. malai is fine on my skin but curd breaks my dry skin out :S
