Now that summers are approaching we are all busy loading our vanities with sun screen lotions anti-tan gels , face packs and astringents.
Here is one simple DIY with raw cabbage juice which I have been using since my school days to lighten my skin tone , remove pigmentation and tan .
Let me show you how I make this pack….
1. Freshly grated raw cabbage
2. A binding medium like multani mitti / besan / rice flour
4. Pinch of turmeric as an anti-septic . I use Kapurahaladi/ Amba halad/Amba-haldi also called mango ginger in English , not the ordinary one we use for cooking. This one is known to remove facial hair .
1. Take a raw cabbage and grate it .
2. Squeeze the juice from grated raw cabbage and collect it in a small bowl .
3. Add honey
4. Add multani mitti / besan / rice flour as a binding medium with pinch of turmeric and make a paste .
5. Preserve some juice and dip two small cotton balls in it .
This is how the pack looks :

How to use this face pack:
1. After you have mixed all ingredients let the pack stand for 10 mins
2. Take some paste and apply it on the face and neck.
3. Now , take the two cotton balls dipped in cabbage juice and place them on your eyes .
4. Lie down for a while till the pack dries off .
5. Wash it off with plain water (normal temperature).
6. Pat your face dry and apply a moisturiser.
My experience with this pack:
I have been using this pack since my teenage upon my mum’s recommendation . Everytime she grates cabbage for salad she keeps some juice in small bowl for me to use .
Use only freshly grated cabbage juice otherwise it gives weird smell due to its high anti-oxidant content . Do not store the juice for later use as the juice starts giving weird smell .
Cabbage juice is high in anti-oxidants (I am not covering it here as it makes the DIY lengthy .However , you can read it HERE ).
I have been using this pack since teenage . It is very effective in cleaning tan , pigmentation and pimple marks and scars due to its high content of anti-oxidants. When you place the cotton balls dipped in cabbage juice on your eyes it helps in removing under eye dark circles . The honey in pack moisturises the skin and the binding agent(multani mitti / besan / rice flour ) + turmeric powder acts as exfoliating agent when you remove the pack by slowly massaging it in circular directions . Wherever , you have facial hair remove the pack by slowly massaging in direction opposite to hair growth .
Do not mix any other juice with this pack as cabbage juice itself is high on various anti-oxidants.
Cabbage juice is a great detoxifying agent when taken internally . Read more about it HERE.
Everytime you grate a cabbage for salad make this easy-peasy pack . 🙂
Since all the ingredients are readily available this pack is easy to make and gives good results. So ladies do give it a try and let me know how you find it.
Thank you all for reading. I hope you all will like this pack and find it useful like I do.
