Cleanse the skin with it, using cotton wool. Keep the leftover mixture in the fridge. This is certainly a budget cleanser for normal to dry skin.
  5. Chocolate is a popular ingredient for face packs and can be made at home easily. Mix three teaspoons cocoa powder and 2 teaspoons oats with egg white and one teaspoon each of honey and yoghurt.

Avocado pulp can be mixed with aloe vera gel and applied to the face to nourish and moisturise the skin. Wash off with plain water after 20 minutes. Fresh and raw avocado should be used. Avocado contains about 20 vitamins and minerals. It is rich in antioxidants.
