Unmask your Beauty

Face Packs to improve your Appearance  


By Shahnaz Husain

In these days of Covid-19, a face mask has a different meaning. But here, we are talking of face packs or beauty masks that are applied on the face. A face pack performs many functions that improve the health and appearance of the skin. They have a deep cleansing action on the skin, removing impurities, wastes and dead skin cells. They also keep the pores free of clogged oil and prevent many related problems. Blood circulation to the skin surface also improves, leaving the skin smooth, glowing and rejuvenated.

A beauty mask or pack should be chosen according to individual requirements.  There are many kinds of masks, depending on the function they are to perform. You can also select them according to skin type. Some masks, like Peel-off Masks, may suit all skin types. If there is an acne condition or sensitive skin, avoid grainy masks or even peel off masks.

Masks You Can Mix At Home:                            

·        Mix egg yolk with a little honey and apply on the face for normal to dry skins.

·        Mix egg white with a little honey and apply on the face for normal to oily skins.

·        Mix oat meal with yogurt into a paste for normal to oily skins.

·        Mix ground almond, a little milk and honey for normal to dry skins.

·        Papaya pulp can be a wonderful cleansing mask for oily and combination skins.

·        Mix wheat bran (choker) half-tablespoon yogurt, 1 teaspoon orange juice, 1 teaspoon carrot juice. It suits all skin types. If the skin is dry, add one teaspoon olive or sesame seed oil.

·        Mix oat meal with potato juice and yogurt for an oily skin.

·        Collect orange peels and dry them in the sun. There should be no moisture. Keep in an airtight jar and ass them to your face masks.

Some tips for face pack application:

Tie your hair back, away from the face. First cleanse your skin thoroughly.

Use a flat, wide brush to apply the pack. Do not apply any pack on the sensitive skin around the eyes, unless it is specially indicated for this delicate region. Avoid the lips too. Leave it on till it is dry. About 20 minutes should do. Remove the pack by rinsing it off with plenty of water, unless special directions for removal of the pack are indicated, as in the case of “peel-off” masks.
