My grandmother has this recipe where she dries various flowers and amla, mills them with a specific type of turmeric, sandalwood, and various dals. I mix it with cream and then apply it to my face. I'm not sure what the recipe is but I tried my best to get 3 kgs when I was in India. Alas, I had no time and I couldn't bring it. On top of that, my skin had decided to turn on me in the worst possible way: cystic acne and blackheads that appeared to have sucked in all the dirt in Chennai into my pores. Enter Cosmetic Warrior.
Garlic is a great acne fighter and the other ingredients int he mask work well together to calm down zits and make your skin soft. I keep the mask on as long as I can keep my gag relfexes under control. The moment I wash it off, I am left with super soft, glowy skin. The forming zits that were bent on populating my face also fade down considerably. In fact, this mask helped me bring my skin back to normalcy after my India trip. Well worth sacrificing my sense of smell for.
