The remedies suggested here are simple, natural and quite often, you have the ingredients in your pantry. So, ready for the remedies?

Milk Cream

Mix equal quantities of Lemon Juice, Milk Cream and Tomato Juice and apply this paste to your face and neck, or body. After 10 minutes, shower or wash off. This gently exfoliates and cleanses your skin, while also moisturizing and nourishing dry and dull skin.

Chickpea Flour

Take equal quantities of Yogurt and Chickpea Flour and mix well. To this, add a few drops of Almond Oil and apply this on your skin. Wash off after 10 minutes.

Alternatively, you can also apply Chickpea Flour with Milk Cream, Honey and Egg White. Don’t use more than one Egg White. The recommendation is equal quantities of Chickpea Flour and Milk Cream, with a tablespoon of Honey and one Egg White. You can skip the egg if you are squeamish, or don’t prefer using Egg.
