Let your skin drink for the difference

Smoothies is what you have been drinking on and off in your life. But, to get rid of dry skin, its time you feed your skin with some wonderful smoothie to drink up. In a bowl, add 2 bananas and mash it well. Add 2 tablespoons of honey to this mixture, use a hand beater or electric beater to blend this mixture into a very smooth and fine paste. Apply this pack to the dried parts of your skin – your legs, arms etc. and leave it on for 20 mins. Let your skin drink up all the liquid in these 20 mins. Wash it off with warm water and towel dry your skin. Using this pack once or twice in a week will bring marked difference to your skin. Pamper it.

Now, time to spice up your skin

Now that you have made your skin drink some smoothie, let’s give it some spice too. In a bowl, mix in 2 tablespoons of barley powder, a teaspoon of organic turmeric powder (referred to as kasthuri manjal, you will get this in the Indian supermarkets and online stores), 2 teaspoons of mustard oil and mix all the ingredients into a fine paste. The reason for adding in the organic form of turmeric is to avoid the yellow tint on your skin. Apply this mixture to the dry parts of your skin and leave it on for 20 mins or more. Wash it off with warm water and to remove the dry patches use your palms and not any other bathing sponge.
