Are you someone who refuses to use kitchen-based ingredients despite being told by their grandmother an infinite number of times? If so, then let us tell you, only if you had listened to her at that time, your skin would have been clear by now. Trust us, they are right and the ingredients they recommend for your skin are something even celebrities like Kareena Kapoor swear by.
We all know that 108 Suryanamaskars is all it takes to achieve rosy cheeks like Kareena Kapoor. But as much as the actress loves to keep up with her fitness routine for blemish-free skin, there is one ingredient that is her go-to whenever attacked by annoying pimples and acne.
But before we tell you all about the skin-ingredient she confides in, here are some pictures where her gorgeous glowing is popping out.
If there is one celebrity we think of every time we fantasize about acne-free, naturally glowing skin, it has to be Bebo. In most of her #nofilter photos, she hosts a gorgeous glow that we wish to achieve with our store-bought creams and masks. But that is so not the case with Kareena for she uses sandalwood to maintain her radiant glow.
During the lockdown, we are sure you must have come across a picture where she had applied a sandalwood face mask and posed with her iconic pout. Taking inspiration from the skin-ingredient she uses we did some digging and found out how one can add sandalwood to their beauty routine.
Sandalwood for skincare
Sandalwood is a great skin-ingredient for all those who are annoyed with their pimples and acne marks. It protects your skin from any kind of breakouts and when applied, it refreshes plus hydrates your skin. The main reason behind pimples and acne is usually clogged pores and sandalwood holds the properties to tone your skin.
How to use: With sandalwood powder, mix 2 drops of Vitamin E and a pinch of turmeric. Apply this paste as a face mask and leave it for 20 minutes. This is the same recipe that even Kareena Kapoor uses when applying Sandalwood.
Even though with the winter season we are likely to be covered from head to toe, it does not mean our skin cannot get tanned. No matter how much sunscreen you apply on your face, harmful UV rays are going to get to you. This is precisely why you should not just use SPF products but give your skin more natural healing. You can do so by using sandalwood powder.
How to use: Take sandalwood powder, one tablespoon cucumber and lemon juice, one tablespoon of curd, one teaspoon honey and mix the ingredients well. Apply the paste on your face for at least 15 minutes.
Apart from sandalwood paste and powder, there are oils where the ingredient is used as the base or main product. Get yourself some sandalwood oil and you will notice how within a few days few drops have done wonders to your skin.
How to use: Take a few drops of sandalwood every night before sleeping and massage it well. When you wake up the next morning, you will how nourished your skin looks.
You can apply sandalwood to you as it is also by mixing it with rose water. Just make sure you are adding this skin ingredient to your everyday beauty routine to achieve a glow like Bollywood’s Poo.
