FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN
For acne-prone skin, AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) are important chemical compounds that remove dead skin cells from the face. Two ingredients in the mask viz., yogurt and blueberries are natural sources of AHAs. Together they fight acne-causing bacteria to give you clean, soothing skin. Rice flour content gives structure to the mask and ease of application.
How To Make: Mash 1/3 cup of blueberries with 2 tablespoons of yogurt and 1 tablespoon of rice flour. Leave the mixed paste on your face for 15-20 minutes. Gently rinse with warm water. You can also add 1 teaspoon of honey in the mixture.
