What does a face pack do?

A face pack cleanses your skin by penetrating deep into the pores to remove impurities, dead skin cells and excess oils. It keeps the skin hydrated by restoring the water content of the skin, leaving it soft and supple. 

Face packs also brighten skin by lightening spots, blemishes and pigmentation. 

How do I choose the right pack?

You must know your skin type in order to choose the right face pack.  Look for natural ingredients like saffron, neem, papaya, apple, aloe vera in your packs. Use packs with ingredients like turmeric, saffron, aloe vera. Antioxidant turmeric and saffron improve skin tone. Aloe vera is known to hydrate the skin. 

If you have dry skin, the skin produces less sebum. As a result, it could cause flaking and turn lackluster. 

To get rid of dull and patchy skin, use fruit packs with ingredients like apple, fig, cucumber, papaya. Apple, a rich source of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), nourishes the skin. Fig and cucumber relieve dryness. Papaya helps in lightening blemishes. 

If you have oily skin, you have overactive oil glands. The oil glands produce more sebum, giving the skin a greasy shine.

Use a mud pack or multani mitti. These packs absorb excess oil and remove deep-set impurities. 

If you have pimple-prone skin, pimples and acne are your worst enemies. You need to take care of your skin without aggravating the condition.  Face packs with neem and turmeric are great for all types of skin textures. Neem has anti-bacterial properties that keep troubles at bay. Turmeric, with its antiseptic properties, helps improve complexion and fight blemishes.

Remember to remove the pack off your face gently. Wash with lukewarm water and apply an ice pack to close up the pores.
