Here is a simple four-step acne treatment plan that you can do at your home!

  1. Sandalwood anti-clogging face wash

The  main reason behind acne is the excess production of sebum and oil in the skin. These clog skin pores and do not allow for your skin to breathe. Once skin pores are filled with oil, it becomes easier for dust and dirt to accumulate in them and cause pimples and acne.

An easy way to solve  the acne problem is to include sandalwood in your skin care regime. Begin by taking two tablespoons of Sandalwood and mixing it with rose water. Apply the mixture to your face to unclog pores. This suits all skin types and is especially useful for people who have acne and pimples.

  1. Sandalwood and turmeric night care treatment

Acne is hard to fight as it is persistent. Especially for those with oily skin, acne erupts even before you know that your skin is undergoing some damage.

An easy way to fight this problem is to use turmeric, sandalwood and milk. Turmeric is a strong antiseptic and antimicrobial agent that fights with infection-causing microbes. It also helps to prevent infections. Sandalwood also has astringent properties and helps to clear acne from the skin. Milk softens skin and hydrates it. It also helps to soothe pores after the astringent activities of turmeric and sandalwood have begun.

Take two tablespoons of fresh Sandalwood powder and add two teaspoons of organic turmeric powder. Add warm milk and mix well to form a smooth paste. Apply this to your face and allow it to stay until it dries. You can later remove with warm water.

Don’t worry if your skin is coloured mildly yellow after this treatment. It actually means that the treatment has worked. The colour will automatically fade away in some time. Hence, it is best that you use this face pack as a night care regime.

  1. Sandalwood scrub

Sandalwood also helps in exfoliating dead cells and softens skin. Exfoliation not only removes dead cells but also accumulated dirt.

In order to maximize the effects of exfoliation, it is best to use a face scrub and face pack combination. Scrubbing skin helps to remove dirt and dead cells with ease.

To  make your own face scrub, take two tablespoons of natural Sandalwood powder and add one tablespoon of black chickpea powder to it. Mix them together into a paste by adding rose water.

Apply this mixture to your face and scrub in circular motions for five minutes. You can then leave it as is for about half an hour and then wash with cold water.

Once done, apply some sandalwood oil to your skin to soothe it. This will remove dead cells and dry pimples, leaving your skin clearer and fresher. This replenishes skin and gives you the care that you need every day.
