If you have a dirty mind, you’ll be right in the flow on this ‘National Mud Pack Day.’ For centuries people have discovered the magical benefits of using mud for a beautiful complexion. Mud cleanses and purifies the skin, and its mineral rich properties help rejuvenate and restore. And it’s all-natural and chemical-free! For dry skin, ‘Fuller’s Earth’ or Multani mitti is recommended. You will need three tablespoons of that as well as two tablespoons of plain yogurt, a half-teaspoon of almond oil and three drops of rose water. Put the yogurt in a bowl and add the earth gradually, stirring gently with a wooden spoon. Pour the almond oil and rose water into this mix and continue stirring until the ingredients form a loose paste. Apply this mudpack for twenty minutes before washing it off. For oily skin put three tablespoons of Fuller’s Earth in a bowl with few drops of fresh lime juice and three drops of rose water. Mix until a loose paste forms and wear for thirty minutes. Wash it off your face and then watch the wear and tear of your life go down the drain, exactly where it belongs.
