How To Exfoliate Skin: Mom’s Mantra

  • After splashing water on your face and neck, do NOT wipe it off. Use the above homemade face scrub by mixing it with curd.
  • Gently massage it all over your face and neck for about 2 mins (go by a clock)

    1. I have made people with oily, dry, combination and normal skin use curd extensively for long under the routines I pass, Shilpa. Unless people specifically inform me in advance that curd doesn’t suit their skin, I have never come across anyone whose skin doesn’t respond positively to curd.

      I find it the best ingredient to mix face packs, Shilpa. If asked, unless you are cock-sure that curd doesn’t sting your skin or trigger any allergic reaction, please use it. It’s safe in my eyes.

      As far as mom’s concerned, wish I’d been passed the genes! Kid brother got the better deal and I look totally unrelated to her.

    1. Ye to zyada hi ho gaya, Soma 😂 Anyway thanks and yes, the recipe is pretty good.
      I didn’t have great expectations out of it because it is too minimal and I’m now used to addition of a considerable number of ingredients. I’ll feature some more DIYs of hers soon.
