All about sandalwood!
You can use this one amazing little ingredient to create many different masks for all skin types!
It’s all natural and works amazingly well!
You find this in a powder form at a spice shop (got mine at Gorima’s)
It’s a lovely red colour and looks like this
It’s also verrrry cheap! I think I paid R10 for this packet
First, I will just a mention a few benefits of
Sandalwood for your skin
It has been used for years in Ayurvedic remedies for both cosmetic and medicinal purposes.
• It has a cooling effect on the skin, so not only will it soothe your sunburn, but it will also remove it
• Reduces and heals acne and pimples
• Improves overall complexion
• Lightens/fades scarring and blemishes
• Has anti-aging properties
Now, as I mentioned, there are numerous ways to mix it up, to suit your skins needs. Use 1 or more of the ingredient under your skin type or problem mentioned below
Honey. Milk. Rose water. Olive and almond oil. Yogurt
Rose water. Water. Diluted lemon juice. Cucumber juice. Yogurt
All of the above ingredients can be used if you have acne/pimples. You can also add in some turmeric/arad.
When mixed with honey, especially, it will help fade scars much faster and give you a smooth glowing complexion!
Gentle enough for daily use.
(Don’t be alarmed by the bright red colour, it won’t stain your skin so much, just wipe your face with some toner after you wash it off to remove any (light) staining.
