Hello mothers ..I hope your Diwali preparation is going full fledged. This is really a very challenging time for all of us and important thing is that managing all the household stuffs (cleaning ,decoration, preparing special dishes) by taking care of our little one is a challenging task .
In between all this getting time for Parlor is just near to impossible. So why not to use your kitchen goods for bringing the glow back on your skin. What say ladies isn’t it a good idea? I tell you 6 simple home pack which is very easy to prepare and easy to apply because when Diwali is near we can’t spend much time in all these stuffs.
1. Papaya honey pack- Papaya is a very common fruit which is very healthy for both mothers and baby. Papaya, which is rich in so many healthy components, is best for skin care as it promises and works to provide you with healthy and glowing skin.
Being a good source of Vitamin A and Papain, this fruit helps in removing dead skin cells along with breaking down the inactive proteins.
With my personal experience I tell you it is really an instant glow pack.
- A slice of ripe papaya (without seeds).
- One spoon honey.
Mash one slice of ripe papaya and add honey to it. It is much preferable to apply it at the day time when your baby is sleeping and you are taking rest for a short interval. Apply this pack on face and neck for 15-20 minutes and just wash it with normal cool water. You will be able to notice the glow. You can also add turmeric to this face pack.
Sometimes, when I am in hurry to get ready for a party, I just apply it on my face and neck then finish my kitchen work.
