What you need 

2-3 marigold flowers

1 tablespoon honey

2 teaspoons sandalwood powder

2 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon gram flour

½ teaspoon olive oil

A few drops of rosewater

Method 

Throw marigold petals in a bowl and crush them well with the back of a spoon. Add a few drops of rosewater to smoothen the paste. Squeeze this pulp through a fine muslin cloth to extract the liquid, and keep it aside. In a separate bowl, mix the other ingredients to form an even paste. Add the marigold extract, mix well, and adjust the mask’s consistency so that it can be spread easily. Refrigerate for an hour. Apply evenly on your face and neck. Rinse with cold water after 30 minutes.

Benefits 

This face mask reduces acne formations and dryness. Also, marigolds are known to enhance the skin’s texture.

What you need

1 teaspoon marigold paste

1 teaspoon red lentil powder

3 tablespoons raw milk

Method

Mix the ingredients in a bowl. Pour enough milk to ensure a scrub-like consistency; add more lentil powder, if needed. First, wash your face with lukewarm water to open up the pores. Next, apply a thick layer of the mask and let it dry. After 15-20 minutes, gently scrub your face and neck in a circular motion with wet fingers. Wash off and pat dry.

Benefits

Red lentil powder removes dead skin, while raw milk helps lighten the skin tone. And marigold acts as an antiseptic and toner to nourish and repair the skin.
