It’s self- quarantine time for everyone, since a 21-day national lockdown was announced, to combat and minimize the spread of Coronavirus pandemic. Bollywood celebrities are utilizing this time doing some really fun things, and have been sharing them on social media. Now is the time we can all try things we never could, otherwise. Bollywood actress Ananya Panday has shared the simplest recipe of her DIY mask, which was taught to her by her mother, Bhavna Panday. This 3-ingredient recipe is the easiest way to pass time while in self-quarantine, and attempt to have clear, glowing skin at the same time.
In the video posted by Elle India, Ananya Panday shared about the DIY face mask that she religiously abides by. She started by mentioning the three ingredients that would be required to make this face mask- yogurt, honey, and turmeric. These are basic things that can be found in almost any household. To make the face mask, first take a tablespoon of yogurt in a bowl, and add one teaspoon each of turmeric and honey. Ananya explains how yogurt contains lactic acid and helps in the removal of dead skin, while honey helps with glowy skin.
After adding honey, yogurt and turmeric, mix the ingredients well until a smooth paste is formed. Wash your face after making the facemask, and pat it dry. You can then apply the mixture all over your face in circular motions. The mask should be left on for only 15 minutes on the face, if you keep it on for longer, your skin might stain, due to the turmeric.
Wash off the mask after 15 minutes, and while you do so, wash it off in the circular motion as it helps exfoliate. Pat your skin dry, and it’s all done! Ananya Panday’s face-mask is easy enough and worth a try while we self-quarantine.
