Cooling mint pack
Apply a paste of freshly ground green mint all over the face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off. This pack will leave your skin refreshed.

Tan removal
To remove tans, try this homemade remedy: Mix 4 tbsp milk, 1 tbsp honey and 2 tbsp lemon juice. Apply the mixture evenly on the tanned areas for 15 minutes. Once dried, wash with cold water. This works best for greasy and oily skin.

Exfoliating scrub
This is very important to remove dirt, blackheads and whiteheads. Mix 1 tsp fine oatmeal and 1 tsp baking soda in enough water to make a thick paste. Rub over face for 2-3 minutes, rinse and pat dry. This mixture is suitable for all skin types.

Natural cleanser
Mix 4 tbsp plain yogurt, 2 tbsp honey, and 3 tbsp lime juice. Mix them well. Add a little cornstarch if you think the paste needs to thicken. Apply on your face and massage for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with cold water to get desired results.

Tone it up
Break an aloe vera leaf, into two and use the extract or the juice mixed with natural rose water for best skin protection from tanning and clogging.
