To treat acne
If you are tired of using artificial products to treat your acne, replace them with mint leaves and rose water paste. You can simply crush a bunch of mint leaves and add some rose water to it. You can even add some besan to make it a thicker consistency. Apply this pack on your skin for about 30 minutes. This will not only treat acne but also keep your skin oil-free in when it’s hot and humid outside.
For dry skin
If you suffer from dry skin, mint leaves can help. All you need to do is grind them and squeeze the juice out of them. Apply this juice on your dry skin and see the results for yourself.

You can also use a mint face pack for exfoliation. Take a tablespoon of oatmeal and mix it with mint juice. Apply it on the face for about 10 minutes and scrub away to remove dead cells.
For pimples and blemishes
Mint leaves are also used to treat pimples and blemishes. Women who suffer from such skin problems should take a tablespoon of multani mitti, tomato juice and mix it with mint juice.

As a toner

To fight hairfall
Mint oil when mixed with virgin coconut oil can be used to treat hair fall and stimulate hair growth. Take three spoonfuls of extra virgin oil and mix five drops of mint essential oil to it.

Follow this ritual twice a week for one month to get the desired results.
