Guys Guys Guys
This makes me excited to announce that I am collaborating with a very beautiful talented fellow Maham for a 7-day skincare challenge where we both will share our skincare DIY’s, AM/PM routine, remedies for your skincare problems and the ways to stay hydrated.
As part of the challenge, here’s my first DIY facemask which is soooooo ahmazingh, I basically love Besan (Chickpea flour) for both cooking and applying on my face hehe. I love it when it dries on my face and I rub it off with my fingers and it removes all the dead skin cells off my skin, making it look bright and even.
LET’S CHECKOUT THE DIY THEN
I tend to use as fewer ingredients in my DIYs as I can, it’s easy for me to add them in my routine then if the ingredients are right in front of my eyes in the kitchen, that works as a reminder to apply them on my skin. So I have only used two things here, which work great for my normal to oily skin but if you have dry skin you can add coconut oil or yogurt or milk in it.
What I used:
1. Chickpea flour (Besan)
How to Apply:
Mix two tablespoons of Besan with an adequate amount of rosewater to make a semi-thick paste and apply it onto a clean dry face. let it stay for 10-15 minutes until its semi-dry. Check with your fingers if the paste is still wet on the face, let it stay a few more minutes if it’s wet, but be very careful not to let the mask become too dry.
Rub it off with the help of dry fingers, rub the whole face mask off and wash off your face with lukewarm water.
Why Chickpea Flour?
Besan is a natural exfoliator and removes dead skin cells, as a result, we get a new healthier layer of skin to the surface making it look clean and glowing.
Rosewater is a natural toner plus pore cleaner. Best for skin hydration, and fights acne.
TIP: You can use rosewater in almost all of your DIY’s instead of the water or if your skin is oily you can replace milk with rosewater in your DIY recipes.
Which skin types can use this mask?
People with normal to oily skin or oily skin. I have an oily T-zone which makes my skin uneven and acne-prone especially on the chin area (that’s due to periods too) but using this mask once a week has proven subsequent difference to how my skin looks now.
Use once a week for best results.
So, this was day 1 of the 7 days skincare challenge. You ought to try the 7 days skincare challenge too, it will help you a lot in becoming consistent with your skincare routine and these useful tips will come in handy too.
