Sandalwood Powder And Multani Mitti Face Pack For Oily Skin- DIY

If you have oily skin, you know how much prone you are to greasiness, pimples and acne! So, why not try a face pack that would help you control excess oil secretion and at the same time, gradually combat the problem of acne and pimples? Nothing can be better than homemade face packs, made out of natural ingredients as they help you to treat your skin safely, effectively and gently. Today, I would be sharing a DIY face pack recipe which oily skinned beauties might find helpful.

sandalwood miltani mitti diy face pack

5. Now, adequate rosewater should be added to make a soft and creamy paste.

6. The paste should neither be of runny consistency, nor too thick.

Apply on the face and leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Wait till the face pack is dry. It smells pleasantly of sandalwood and rosewater. It has a cooling effect on the skin too. Now, splash your face with plain water and scrub off the face pack with gentle upward movements while washing. Rinse thoroughly. Pat your face dry. Dab some rosewater on skin with cotton wool.


• Multani mitti deep cleanses the skin while effectively combating problems of acne and blemishes. It soaks away excess oil from the skin.
• Sandalwood powder has antimicrobial, anti-aging and soothing properties; hence your skin benefits at multiple levels.
• Turmeric is a magic spice that helps to improve complexion, impart glowing skin, combat rashes and pigmentation and also slow down skin aging.
• Rosewater is a natural astringent and toner for oily skin.
• The pack makes skin feel fresh, smooth and non-greasy for a long time.
• With the right amount of turmeric added, you can bring extra glow to your skin, without having to look yellowish.
• Done at least twice every week, it would treat your skin most efficiently.

Things to remember:

• It can have a drying effect even on oily skin, if used in winter days. So, you must follow up with moisturizer.
• If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, you might have to do away with that ingredient.
• If you have sensitive skin, you should use your discretion. I am not sure, whether or not it would suit you.
• If you have dry skin and you still want to reap the benefits of Sandalwood powder and Multani mitti face pack, try replacing rosewater with milk and adding a few drops of olive oil to the mixture.

It will be the normal kitchen turmeric powder itself. You could also get the entire turmeric root and make the powder yourself.
