Skin type: Oily and Sensitive
I really enjoy using red sandalwood powder and it always gives a beautiful, bright glow to the skin. It acts as a good exfoliator as well. A few days ago, I tried a new ingredient with my regular sandalwood face pack and noticed a beautiful glow on my skin. So today, I am going to share the recipe of a skin brightening exfoliator cum face pack that you can make with cranberries and red sandalwood powder. Since this one is great for all skin types you all can try it to see visible results.
Ingredients and their benefits:
Cranberry offers many beauty benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, hence is loaded with Vitamin C, B3 and B5. It fights against skin ageing and keeps it youthful. It maintains the elasticity of the skin and also provides deep hydration. It makes skin bright and healthy, too. It also firms up the skin. Apart from this, it is a great ingredient for oily skin. Hence, it treats acne and prevents excess oil production.
Sandalwood is a very popular Ayurvedic skin care ingredient that helps in treating many skin problems. It treats acne and keeps your skin soft without making it oily. It also reduces the dull texture of the skin and provides a bright glow. Sandalwood takes care of your skin well and fights against ageing, dryness, itchiness, stress and dull texture.
Lemon juice contains citric acid which gradually fades spots, evens out our skin tone and brightens up the skin. It is also a good ingredient to remove tan. Lemon’s antibacterial and antifungal properties make it a natural ingredient to treat acne as well.
Aloe vera provides immense hydration to the skin and also repairs damage. It reduces dullness and rough texture and provides a fresh, youthful glow. This ingredient is great for all skin types as it makes your skin smooth, soft and fresh. It acts as a nice skin soothing element, too.
First, you need to crush some cranberries and extract their juice.
Then, add a ½ spoon of red sandalwood powder to the juice. Mix both the ingredients well. Please note this powder is not super fine in texture, so it won’t completely dissolve with water.
Now, add ½ spoon of lemon juice.
Next, add 1 spoon of aloe vera gel to this mixture and combine all the ingredients well.
Your exfoliator cum face pack is ready.
Now, apply a layer of this pack on your face and leave it on for around 20-30 minutes. Once the pack starts setting on your skin, take a little water and start massaging your skin. Scrub your skin with it for a few minutes and then rinse it with plain water.
At times our skin just needs a boost of health, especially before an important event. Since store-bought products are loaded with chemicals, they might leave your skin irritated. That’s when this DIY recipe comes to your rescue. This pack contains skin brightening ingredients like lemon, cranberry and sandalwood powder. It also provides a nice glow to the skin while keeping your skin hydrated. So overall, this pack instantly provides a fresh, bright glow to the skin.
Red sandalwood powder exfoliates the skin very smoothly and its fine particles remove dead skin cells. Hence, it makes your skin smoother and softer. This beauty recipe is good enough for all skin types as it cures dry and dull texture. It removes the dull layer of your skin, making it look healthier. These ingredients also fight against the other skin problems such as ageing, tanning, itchiness, and spots.
