3. Sandalwood Powder
4. Fuller's Earth (Multani Mitti)
5. Rose Water (Optional)

1. In a clean bowl, blend the yogurt or curd with a spoon to prevent the lumps it in. Make sure it is of a smooth uniform consistency and not too runny.
2. Add 2 tablespoons of honey in it.

Benefits Of The Ingredients Used:
Yogurt or Curd: It moisturizes the face and hence you don't need a moisturizer after the face pack. However, it does make the skin greasy. It has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties which effectively fight acne, prevent premature aging, relieve sunburn, and reduce discoloration, along with bringing a natural glow to the face.
Honey: It has antibacterial properties which are useful for acne treatment and prevention. It is also full of antioxidants which slow down the signs of aging. Honey is extremely moisturizing, soothing and adds a glow to the face. It is also clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
Sandalwood Powder: Brides often use sandalwood face mask to get the glowing and healthy skin before the D-Day. It has the ability to reduce and prevent skin problems like pimples, dark spots, pigmentation, etc. It is also effective in soaking excess oil and sebum from the skin. The toning effect of sandalwood helps in reduction of skin pores that offers an even skin texture and averts sagging and aging skin.
Fuller's Earth (Multani Mitti): It has an excellent ability to soak up oil and sebum from the skin and makes it naturally radiant, thus it has an amazing natural cleansing and absorbing properties. It helps you get rid of a lot of skin problems like pimples, tanning, blemishes, etc. and stimulates blood circulation to facial skin.
Rose Water (Optional): Rose water is optional but the glow it imparts to the skin is excellent. It can help soothe and cool the sensitive irritated skin, balances and cleanses oily skin, rejuvenates, softens and tones mature skin, revitalizes, prevent the signs of aging and nourishes the skin.
