I am here with another DIY face pack. Well, I just love to mix kitchen ingredients to come up with something beneficial. Today’s DIY face pack is for visibly firming or shrinking large pores while making the skin feel smoother in a natural way. I have used this face pack for quite some time and noticed visible changes in the pores around my nose area. So, let’s move further and find out how it is made.
Ingredients and their benefits:
Following ingredients are used to make this face pack. All of these ingredients are known to shrink large pores.
Banana peel contains Vitamin A, C and E. It is a rich source of zinc, manganese and iron, which soothe irritated skin. It acts as an exfoliator and unclogs the pores as well. It is a rich source of antioxidants too and removes extra oil from the skin.
Neem leaves were not available, so I included curry leaves in the face pack. Curry leaves offer anti-bacterial property and are rich in vitamin A and C. These leaves fight acne-causing bacteria and remove excess oil to unclog the pores. Hence, they make the pores shrink and look smoother.
Tomato helps in removing excess oil from the skin and leaves it nourished and moisturised as well. It is also rich in lycopene, which cleanses pores from deep within. It is a great source of antioxidants and fights free radicals which damage the skin.
Curd is a perfect ingredient to treat blemishes or acne scars. I used it here to provide moisture to the skin and make it supple. It dissolves all the impurities and unclogs the pores, making the skin appear smoother.
It helps in absorbing excess oil and dirt from your skin, giving it a fairer and non-oily look.
How to Prepare:
Take half of the peel from one banana, 15-20 curry leaves, 2 thin slices of tomato and 2 tablespoon curd. Mix all these ingredients in a blender to make a nice paste.
Mix 1 tablespoon fuller’s earth to this paste.
How to Apply:
Cleanse your face properly.
Apply this face pack evenly.
Wash it off with normal tap water after 25-20 minutes.
Follow up with a moisturiser.
This face pack is packed with many vitamins and other nutrients which are necessary to make the skin healthy and glowing. Banana peel and curry leaves unclog the pores. Tomato and curd help in moisturising your skin and they lighten dark spots as well. The first thing you will notice after using this pack is a nice glow on your skin.
This face pack will leave you with a clean and supple skin. Your pores will look smaller and smoother just after one use. The results will be so great and visible that you’d want to try this pack again. It worked so well for me and I hope it will show good results on your skin as well.
1. Before applying this face pack, do a patch test to check if these ingredients suit your skin well. To test, apply the face pack on your inner arm, which is your the thinnest skin. Leave it there for 10-15 minutes and wash off. Wait for 45 minutes and see if there is any redness or irritation. If not then go ahead with this face pack.
2. If you are allergic to any ingredients then do not use this face pack.
3. Use this face pack once or twice a week to see visible results.
