Excess of oil on the skin is never a pleasant feeling. Needless to say, it is the breeding ground for pimples, clogged pores. Mix 1 tablespoon of sandalwood powder with rosewater to make a paste.

Make a thin paste and apply over the face and leave it on till completely dry. Wash off with water and get a clean and clear skin.
4. Treat suntan
You might come across different salons providing different quick-fixes for this common skin problem. However, if you apply a natural face-pack using 2 tablespoons of gram flour (besan), 1 tablespoons of grated dried orange peel, 1 tablespoon of milk, a pinch of turmeric powder, you’re bound to see a positive change on the texture of your skin. Mix these ingredients with rose water, apply it on clean face and let it dry for 15-20 minutes. Spray some water on your face and gently scrub this pack in a circular motion. It will naturally exfoliate your skin and remove tan.
