Sunday is a good time to spend time on your selves (I say this to my clients too). This is my second blog in the series skin lightening mask and scrub oats and banana
Tamarind as skin care –
Tamarind is a powerhouse of antioxidants, vitamin C, flavanoids, and vitamin A, which help fight against the formation of free radicals ( the main ingredients in any age-defying product) . Tamarind when applied on skin soothes irritation and inflammation. It lightens the skin and reduces dark spots and pigmentation ( along with few drops of lemon it also acts as instant bleaching agent ) . Tamarind contains natural fruit acids which help to remove impurities and dead cells giving a polished skin. It also contains AHA (alpha- hydroxy acids) which acts as an exfoliater. This body scrub along with turmeric is ideal for oily and acne prone skin due the antimicrobial properties of tamarind. But avoid the contact with eyes and skin and do not apply after shaving or waxing as it may irritate your skin.
