You can select the ingredients according to your skin type. If you have active acne, then you may add 1 r 2 drops of tea tree oil. If you have pure rose water then you may use it, or if you have Dabur Gulab jal (which is distilled water with fragrance and a negligible amount of rose oil) then it is well and good to use your drinking water.
HOW TO MAKE THIS DIY FOR GLOWING SKIN
Take a clean bowl and spoon. Add 1 spoon of Multani mitti to it. Now add 1 spoon of neem powder and ¾ spoons of lemon peel powder to this.
Now add sandalwood powder. I’m using red sandalwood powder since I have it. It is equally good to use your normal Chandan (white sandal wood powder).
Now add turmeric to it. (I forgot to click the image).
Mix these ingredients well until everything is evenly mixed. Transfer this to an airtight container.
This will last you easily for 1 week. You can even double or triple the quantity and store it since this has the shelf life of 6 months due to the presence of neem and haldi.
Next comes the important part, application.
Take a ½ spoon or 1 spoon of the mixture that we have made in a clean bowl.
If you have dry skin then add few drops of sweet almond oil to it(if you don’t have sweet almond oil, then you can substitute it with cold milk). Then add required amount of rose water to it so that it attains the desired consistency.
If you have Oily skin the add ¼ spoons of aloe vera gel to it. Then add required amount of rose water to it so that it attains the desired consistency.
Our DIY is ready now. You have to use this every day in order to see the result.
Apply a thin layer of the mixture all over your face and neck. Since we are using it every day, don’t let them dry completely. Leave it for about 5 to 8 minutes and then wash it off with normal water. Repeat this once every day and you will see clear and glowing skin.
This will suit all skin types and these ingredients are extremely potent and it will give you the required results within 20 days.
