Each of these face packs are intended to target one particular skin problem as you can see below. They help with nourishing dull skin and even tones your complexion.

The recipes recommended on PB are TRIED AND TESTED on my skin so there should be any side effects.

These ingredients are inarguably the best ingredients that i have ever used on my skin.

Most if not all ingredients that i use in my face packs are homemade for best quality and results.

If you are using store bought ingredients, then make sure it is genuine and free from pesticides and other nasty chemicals.


Scroll down to see the recipes, photos and benefits of using each face pack.

Clay Face Pack – Cleanse And Detoxify

If you have oily skin, a clay face pack would perhaps be the best choice for you. You can find a List Of Clay Face Pack Recipes here.

You can make use of any clay that suits your skin type.

Bentonite clay and fuller’s earth would be the best choices for acne prone skin and oily skin.

Those with normal-dry skin and sensitive skin types can surely go for KAOLIN clay. Kaolin clay is very mild and does not dry out your skin.

  • Multani mitti – 1 Tablespoon

If you have acne prone skin, Add 1 Teaspoon of NEEM to this face pack to treat and prevent new acne formation.

The effects of this simple and easy face pack can be easily noticed in its first use itself.


Clay absorbs excess oil, dirt and bacteria on a deeper level and thus, helps cleanse and detoxify the skin thoroughly. This action makes it a perfect ingredient for acne prone- oily skin.

Honey has antiseptic, antibacterial and moisturising properties which makes it highly beneficial for acne prone skin.

Aloe Vera not only moisturises the skin, it also soothes irritations and promotes cell repair.

Using aloe vera gel helps lighten acne scars and also, delays the signs of ageing.

Make a thick paste and apply the face pack all over your face and neck.

Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes or until it starts to feel tight or stretchy.

Sadly, i haven’t been able to use it as much because of my sensitive skin. I mix 1/4 teaspoon to other face packs rather than skipping it all together.

If you have textured skin, bumpy skin or uneven skin tone and texture, try using manjistha as it helped heal and repair my skin immensely.

Both my husband and i drink manjistha tea everyday.

Maybe the combination external and internal use of manjistha purified my blood and that may have showed it effects on my skin too. So naturally, i would recommend you do the same if possible.


Antioxidant, anti bacterial and anti-inflammatory

It helps purify blood and detoxify your body off toxins. Manjistha promotes blood circulation and supports the lymphatic system thus, improving your immunity.

Manjistha is good for treating acne and acne scars.

Rich in antioxidants, it helps fade fine lines and wrinkles to give off a more youthful look.

Just like licorice root, Manjistha also has the ability to block tyrosinase and inhibit excess melanin production.

When melanin production is reduced, the pigmentation starts to naturally lighten.


Use everyday until you see results. Be consistent for three months

If you are using Besan(Gram Flour), then use this manjistha face pack 3 times a week only.

Again, leave it on for about 20 minutes and rinse off.

Follow up with a moisturiser.

Best when used at night time regimen.

Do not skip sunscreen when using skin lightening ingredients like licorice and manjistha.


The results can be easily noticed after a few uses but for problems like sun tan, pigmentation, acne, you need to use these face packs consistently to cure it completely.

You might already be familiar with these ingredients BUT, i want to emphasis the importance of using these face packs properly.

Use ingredients like lemon, licorice root, manjistha at night time only for best results.
