I always prefer to use homemade face pack instead of the readymade. Chemical products are not good for the skin. Natural fresh ingredients are always better than readymade herbal products.
Almost everyone gets confused between face pack and face mask. I will say face pack is a time of face mask with a bit fewer properties. Face pack cannot remove dead skin from your face as a facial mask.
It`s being 10 years, I am using a homemade face pack as my grandmom recommended. I think if anyone applies these homemade face pack then he/she can fight almost every type of skin problems.
I have remembered an incident that reminds me that homemade remedies can act as miracles. On summer days, it was too hot outside. But I never missed playing out. One day I fell sick due to dehydration. Then one thing really bothered me and that was the little bumps on my forehead.
It was not pimples actually but looks much similar to pimples. Then it started growing and ends as an infected wound. After that whenever I go out, everyone started giving me suggestions for pimple and spot removing.
The pimple wounds left dark spots on my forehead. I went to the doctor and got a lotion. But nothing worked. As I usually forgot to apply that lotion every 2nd day.
Then my grandma gives me a solution. It works like magic. The face pack she revealed was her grandma`s formula. And in only 1- 2 months all dark spots vanished and my complexion also improved.

What is the right age to start using face Masks or face packs?
Right after entering our Teenage, all skin and hair problems begin. These happen due to some hormonal change. In most of the people, the fluctuating hormone Androgen aggravates skin by producing excess oils. And these oils results in gathering dirt in the pores and cause acne.
I have started doing primary skin care routine from the age of 13. As my skin is a bit oily I have to face so many skin problems. Skin problems like skin blackening, acne and blackheads are the common skin problem for my skin.
Applying only homemade face pace 2-3 times a week helps me to reduce excess oil from my skin. I have use tomato face pack, gram flour turmeric face pack, red lentils and many more.
There is no defined age for using face masks or packs. If you are a teenager and facing skin problems like dry dead skin or oily acne prone skin then start applying facial packs at least 2 times a week.
