5 Simple Summer Face Packs You Need To Try June 26, 2016

Well, summer is here at its all time punishing peak, what with the sweltering day time temperatures and that sweaty feeling the minute you step out of the house, or even when you’re in the house. This season is the prime time for all kinds of skin problems, especially for oily and acne prone skin.

Summers aggravate oil secretion for people with oily skin types. Coupled with sweat and dirt, its a sure shot invitation for breakouts and other skin problems to happen. And skin solutions and treatments can be so very expensive! How about a homemade Face Packs for Oily Skin in summer instead?

So here are some simple face pack recipes I’ve put together with easily available ingredients. These packs are great for controlling the oil secretion of the skin.

Summer Face Packs for Oily Skin

1. Neem, Rose Water And Orange Face Mask:

Ingredients:

  • Neem
  • Orange
  • Sandalwood
  • Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth)
  • Honey
  • Lemon juice
  • Rose water

Method:

  • Mix equal quantities of neem, orange, sandalwood and multani mitti (fullers’ earth) powder together. You can find them easily in any Ayurvedic store. I recommend blitzing them together in a mixer grinder to get an even mix. Store this in a jar for later use.
  • Take a tsp or two of this and add a quarter tsp of honey and half a tsp of lemon juice.
  • Lastly, add rose water to make a smooth paste.
  • Apply this on your face and neck for 15-20 minutes and wash off with plain water even if it isn’t dry.

This pack is my personal favorite face pack for oily skin in summer as I have oily and sensitive skin myself.

2. Orange And Oats Face Pack:

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Orange
  • Oats
  • Honey
  • Egg White or curds

Method:

  • If you can find some fresh oranges, put them to use. Mix 3 teaspoons of oats, 1 teaspoon of honey, 2 teaspoons of fresh orange juice and 1 teaspoon of egg white or curd.
  • Use light, circular motions while washing off to get a mild scrub.

3. Rice Flour And Turmeric Face Pack:

Ingredients:

  • Rice flour
  • Turmeric
  • Honey
  • Cucumber juice

Method:

  • Mix 3 teaspoons of rice flour, pinch tumeric, 1 teaspoon of honey and cucumber juice as required to make a smooth paste.
  • This can also be made in larger quantities to get a body pack.

      Hi Preeti, thanks a lot. Almonds have vitamins and act as a mild scrub while honey soothes and nourishes the skin.That makes this an ideal scrub for almost all skin types. There is an article for dry skin too, check it out :)
