Benefits Of Sandalwood:
There are numerous benefits of using sandalwood for the skin. These are as follows:
1. Anti-ageing property:
Dry skin does not cause wrinkles and fine lines but it will definitely accentuate them. When your skin is hydrated, it looks moist, and this makes your wrinkles look smaller. So, your skin needs a lot of moisture for those lines and wrinkles to appear smaller. Sandalwood helps to tighten sagging skin and the toning effect present in sandalwood helps to reduce the size of the pores and prevents ageing.
2. Relieves itchiness:
As mentioned earlier, the soothing and cooling properties in sandalwood help to treat skin itching and infection. It also helps in reducing skin redness, inflammation, and sore skin.
3. Clean and clear complexion:
Sandalwood along with other ingredients will provide a clean and clear complexion. The anti-tanning properties present in sandalwood help to make your skin look fresh and glowing.
4. Softens the skin:
Sandalwood helps to heal dry skin and provides a baby soft skin.
Benefits Of Curd:
1. Exfoliates the skin:
Curd contains lactic acid that gently exfoliates the dead skin cells and helps the new cells to regenerate. This will help to make your face look bright and radiant.
2. Clean and clear skin:
The wonderful cleansing properties in curd help to clear the skin pores and keep it clean and clear, and also provide glow to the skin.
