- Why I cannot get results from natural face packs?
Some people do not like to use natural ingredients used in face packs for skin due to their delaying results. Here, we should understand that even though the results of the natural ingredients are slightly late, they are long-lasting. These ingredients are natural and sometimes it can take more time to see visible results. You need to be patient and continue your routine correctly.
- How often to use a face pack?
Basically, you can use a face pack twice a week and it is better if you can apply your face pack at night time. Nighttime is the best time for your body to rebuild and refresh. Giving nutrition to your skin should be done during the nighttime.
- Can I use yogurt for face packs for oily skin?
I saw there are many articles suggesting using yogurt for face packs that are made for oily skin. I also had doubts about the usage of yogurt for oily skin. There is no evidence of yogurt became a reason for acne. But certain types of yogurt can improve your acne. However, I did not use yogurt for any of my face packs. But I think yogurt is better for the face packs for those who have dry skin.
