You will need:

  • Rose water, if needed
  • Honey

Making the pack:

  • Apply undiluted lemon juice on your clean face. It might tingle a little, but don’t wash it off as it is just doing its job.

  • Wait for 15 minutes and then apply honey.
  • Let the honey sit on your face for as long as you want it to.

#5 Cucumber face mask

Cucumber works by reducing the inflammation caused by pimples.

You will need:

  • Cucumber pulp and juice
  • Curd (optional)

Making the pack:

  • Grate the cucumber and separate the juice from the pulp.
  • Refrigerate the juice and the pulp.
  • Dip the chilled pulp in the juice and apply it to the spots on your face, one at a time.
  • Dip the pulp in the cold juice again if it starts to get warm.
  • You can also add two spoons of curd to the pulp.
  • Apply the mixture to your face.
  • Wash it off after 25-30 minutes.

Remember, you must:

  • Apply the pack on a recently washed clean face.
  • Moisturise after you wash the pack off. Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-aging Revitalizing Hydration Cream is a good choice as it hydrates your skin with a rich non-greasy feel.
  • Say goodbye to oily skin with these simple homemade face packs.
