Flower and Fruit facial - Part 2

While the flower bit is to calm your skin and cleanse it better, what with marigold and holy basil being super at killing germs and calming a violent skin with a mind of its own, i.e like mine. Now for the nourishing part of the facial. You can use this together with the flower pack or separately. So here is how,

For Dry Skin
Overripe banana -1
Milk- 2 tbsp
Honey - 1 tbsp
Papaya (pureed)- 1 tbsp

For Oily Skin
Papaya (pureed)- 4 tbsp
Curd/Milk - 2 tsp
Banana pulp- 1tsp
Honey- 1/2 tsp (optional)

Blend all the ingredients together and apply on clean skin. (you can steam your face and neck area for about 2-3 minutes before putting this pack on to help the pack sink in well ). Wash off after 20- 30 minutes using warm water. For those with dry skin they can add two tablespoon of milk to one mug (bath mug)of warm water and use this to wash off the pack.

Use an iced towel (a face towel soaked in water, squeezed to remove excess and kept in the freezer) to close the pores. Just cover your face with this towel and leave for 2-3 minutes.

As you can see oily skin needs more help in the brightening department, not so much in the moisturising one, so banana , milk and honey are used in smaller quantities. Dry skin loves banana, it is perfect skin and hair food, though messy to remove. Always use warm water to remove banana face or hair packs. (unless you are using eggs and banana or else you will get scrambled eggs with banana flavour) Do not leave the banana pack on for more than 20 minutes or till it makes your skin feel stretched a bit whichever is sooner. Banana is a little tough to wash off if you let it dry off completely, which also means your entire face will feel super stretched (not a good idea).
