Lotus and milk pack for brighter skin
This herbal lotus and milk face pack will help you get radiant skin. The vitamin C in lotus helps reduce dark spots, while the lactic acid and vitamin A in milk regenerate skin cells faster, which improves your blood circulation and gives you lighter skin.
Clean 10-12 lotus petals and crush them with 5 tbsp. s of raw milk. Massage this paste onto your face and let it stay for 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water.
Do this once a week for glowing skin.
Lotus and sandalwood pack for anti-ageing
This face mask is a great way to prevent skin ageing. Lotus and sandalwood both contain antioxidants that prevent free radicals from damaging your skin, thus reducing ageing. The polysaccharides in honey increases skin cell function, giving you glowing skin.
Take 10 lotus petals and cleanse them. Grind the petals in a blender with ½ teaspoon milk. Add 2 tbsp. Sandalwood powder and 1/2 tbsp. honey to it. Mix well and apply it on your face and neck. Leave it on for 30 minutes then rinse with warm water.
Use this paste once a month to get supple skin.
Lotus essential oil for healthy hair
Herbal remedies are all the rage these days when it comes to hair and skin care. So, we too have an herbal hair mask with lotus essential oil that will give you long, smooth hair. The protein in eggs will moisturise your hair while the lotus oil will soothe your scalp, promoting hair growth. You can use jojoba oil as carrier oil since the vitamin E in it will help reduce hair loss.
Mix 3 tbsp. of jojoba oil with 2 eggs and add 2-3 drops of lotus essential oil. Apply this paste on to your hair and let it stay for 40 minutes. Wash your hair as usual.
Do this once or twice a month and you will get smooth hair, naturally!
