We use Fuller’s earth for acne because of the presence of magnesium chloride, and its ability to do away with the excess oil which is one of main causes of acne. It also unclogs pores and soothes and cools the skin. While most people with oily skin swear by it, Multani mitti is also good for dry skin when combined with ingredients with moisturizing properties.
If you are battling acne and acne marks, these three packs with multani mitti for acne should help immensely.
Multani Mitti Face Packs for Acne & Pimples
#1 Smooth and Clear Pack
A pack with multani mitti, honey, lemon juice and yoghurt works on several levels. Multani mitti unclogs pores and absorbs excess oil in the skin. Honey is known as a smoothening and bleaching agent. Both yoghurt and lemon juice lighten the skin. This pack tackles the pimples and the marks that it has left behind. In addition to this, it improves the overall health and texture of skin. The pack needs to be left on till it is almost dry and then washed with cold water. If your skin is too oily, avoid using honey and curd, and replace them with rose water.
#2 Power Pack
Another multani mitti face pack for pimples packs the combined power of multani mitti and neem to fight off the most stubborn pimples. Neem is known for its anti-bacterial properties. Like multani mitti, it is also known to tame excess oil in the skin. You can make a juice out of the neem leaves after washing them thoroughly. This can be added to the multani mitti. If fresh neem leaves are hard to find, you can purchase neem powder in stores. Apply this pack for at least 30 minutes and wash it off with cold water. If your skin is extremely dry, add some yoghurt while making the paste.
#3 Scrub Pack
Coarse orange peel powder mixed with multani mitti and lemon juice can be used as both an exfoliator and a pack that removes dead cells and cleanses. You start by rubbing the mixture in a circular motion. Take care to not be too harsh. And then apply a layer of it and leave it on until it dries. Wash off the pack with cold water to reveal skin that is clearer.
You could add a bit of turmeric powder to all these packs as turmeric is known for its antibacterial properties. Kasturi turmeric can be powdered and used for best results. Other ingredients that work well with multani mitti based on skin types are honey, tomato juice, papaya, oatmeal powder and sandalwood powder.
If you notice that any of these multani mitti packs for pimples are aggravating the pimples, you need to stop using it immediately. It could be that your skin is reacting to one of the ingredients. If you are using any products prescribed by a dermatologist, avoid using packs and follow only the skincare regimen advised. Skin can be very sensitive, so even if you are not getting any treatments, use skin care products from Olay to be your best beautiful always!
