Things You Need For This DIY:
This is a super easy recipe and you just need to raid your kitchen for the ingredients needed. Here are the things you’ll need:
- Gram flour
- Washed mint leaves
- Plate or bowl to mix in
How To Make Mint Leaves Face Mask:
Let’s get to work!
- Take gram flour in a plate. The quantity you’ll need for the face and neck region is 2 teaspoons.
- Gram flour is one of my favorite kitchen ingredients. It cleanses the skin and removes the last bit of dirt and pollution that found its way in the last 24 hours.
- The second ingredient is curd. I have used a thin consistency of curd because thick curd tends to irritate my nose and gives me more moisture than I actually require. You may adjust the consistency as per your convenience.
- These two ingredients could suffice by themselves too. I use gram flour and curd alone on days when I just want to cleanse my face and wash off. But this time I wanted to create a face mask with these ingredients and something extra, something fresh! So that is the reason why I roped in the mint leaves!

- You may put all the 3 ingredients in a bowl or plate.
- Now, chop the mint leaves into small ‘convenient to use’ pieces.
- Bring together all the 3 ingredients and gear up for the mixing process.
- As you can see that all the 3 ingredients are in a different state, so we need to mix them thoroughly.
- So, after some 3-4 minutes of continuous stirring, you have the uniform mixture for the mask.
- Now, you can totally gorge upon this one. I mean go ahead and apply all over your face and neck. Let it settle on your skin for a good 15 minutes, and then wash off with water or a wet towel.
