Although i have normal skin, it is behaving differently this rainy season. It is kind of combination skin now. I did change my vitamin c powder so it could be just ‘Purging’. This cooling mint face pack helps to treat infections and prevent worsening acne breakouts. Tomato helps control oiliness on my T- zone and tighten the skin while oats helps soothe inflamed sensitive skin. 🙂
Tulsi also has anti microbial properties and promotes wound healing too which results in breakouts drying out faster. My last post was about Tulsi face pack and hence i wont be going to write more on the holy basil here.
This face pack is perfect for summers as mint helps cool and soothe the skin all the while controlling oil production. It is suitable for all skin types and certainly helps lighten marks too.
