Subscribe to Boldsky

Rough skin! Two words that can make the bravest of us shudder. Rough skin can be caused by various reasons. However, rough skin on the face is often caused by the build-up of dead cells.

Dead skin cells are a natural by-product of our existence. Dead cells when not cleaned regularly can cause various problems such as acne, blemishes and even warts.

Salt and tumeric are still being used for skin care remedies.  

Salt is often used as an exfoliant to get rid of the dead cells on the face. Salt has to be used in the form of a body scrub or a face scrub. It has to be used with care, as the right ingredients have to be mixed to give you the desired results.

Turmeric, on the other hand, is used to lighten the skin and smoothen the skin. Turmeric is not an ideal solution for everyone due to the yellow stain it tends to leave behind. The smell of turmeric doesn't appeal to everyone as well.

How can you get rid of dead cells using sugar and remove a tan as well? Well, this question will be answered in the paragraphs below. Take a look.

Sugar Face Pack For Lighter Skin

Lemon works as a skin-lightening agent, while the sugar works by exfoliating any dead skin cells. If you have dry skin, then adding a drop of glycerine can help; however, do not add glycerine if you have a sensitive skin.

Ingredients:
One tablespoon of white refined sugar
2 drops of olive oil
Two drops of lemon juice

Method:
Mix the sugar with the olive oil in a small bowl. Add the lemon juice and gently stir. Apply the sugar face pack on your skin in a circular manner.

For best results, gently scrub your face in a circular direction while applying the pack. Allow the face pack to rest on your face for 15 minutes.
