I am back with another DIY. It is my regular face pack. This one is kind of interesting, easy and effective. This face pack is specifically for acne, acne marks and uneven skin tone. This face pack was suggested by my mother. She once told me to use lemon peel in the pack. This face pack cleanses your skin very well and leaves a glowing effect. With the regular use of this pack, you will also see a reduction in acne and acne marks to a good extent. So, let’s get into the details!
Ingredients and their benefits:
Key ingredients used are lemon and milk. Lemon is known for its bleaching properties and milk is known for giving super moisturised and supple skin.

Lemon juice is known for its bleaching and antibacterial properties. It helps in reducing acne as well as acne scars. It also helps in skin brightening. Lemon peel will help in exfoliation and it contains more antioxidants and vitamin C than lemon juice. Hence, it will give two ways benefits.
2. Milk: Raw milk contains lactic acid and malic acid. Raw milk will help in reducing scars and will keep your skin full of moisture.
