Why does it work?
Much to our delight, Ananya also shared with us the amazing properties of the ingredients used that makes this DIY face mask so effective.
Yogurt contains lactic acid that is a great exfoliator for the skin and removes dead skin cells and impurities. Calcium and other essential minerals present in yogurt are good for clarifying and cleansing your face. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe your skin and calm the redness of the skin as well. Honey, of course, along with its many skin-friendly properties adds the glow to your face.
Important Tips Ananya Mentioned
Along with this amazing and quick DIY face mask, Ananya also shared with us some of her important tips for using this mask. Take a look.
- You can apply the face mask with either a brush or your fingers. If you are using your fingers, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly before touching your face.
- Do not touch your face often. The germ and bacteria on your hands invite acne and other skin issues.
- Do not keep the mask for more than 15 minutes. It can stain your face and that is her personal experience. She kept the mask for 5 minutes too long once and it was difficult to get it off.
- Use raw ingredients only. Processed ingredients infused with chemicals are harmful to the skin and should be avoided.
- After you've rinsed off the mask, use a soft towel to pat your face dry. Do not rub the towel on your face, especially the under-eye area. It leads to wrinkles in the long run.
