I have been reviewing products back-to-back and thus thought of taking a break and doing a DIY for a change. With the season changing, my oily skin is either in the combination state or dry. Thus, it has become really difficult for my skin care regime to continue. I am totally into natural ingredients for cleansing, face pack and using the Life-Flo Organic Pure Rosehip Seed Oil as a moisturizer for night and Aloe Vera gel for daytime. To brighten up my dull skin, I am currently using licorice face pack made with 5-6 ingredients that are really helping my skin rejuvenates and replenish. It instantly brightens the skin, removes pigmentation around my mouth and adds a subtle glow as well. The effect lasts for 2 days and I apply this mask on alternate days or minimum thrice a week. Scroll down to know about its preparation and benefits.

Licorice Face Pack For Instant Glow and De-Pigmentation

Directions For Use:

Licorice Face Pack Swatch

1. With the help of a flat foundation brush or face pack brush, apply all over the face, leaving out the area around the eyes.
2. You can either wait for it to dry out completely or keep it for 30-40 minutes.
3. Once the time is over, dampen the face and start massaging in a circular motion (with the face pack on) but very slowly. This will exfoliate the skin as well with mild exfoliating particles in Licorice Powder.
5. Do it for around 2-3 minutes and wash off.
6. If you are going to step out in the sun, thoroughly apply sunscreen.

Do try this DIY at home and let me know how it worked for you.
