The internet is full of face packs for glowing skin but which of these packs is right for your particular skin type? Read on to find the perfect fit for your skin and give your complexion the right kind of boost.
A. For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin:
If you have oily and pimple-prone skin, use these face packs to control the oil and shine and to prevent pimples!
1. Some Orange-y Goodness
A good face pack to combat oiliness is an orange one. Use dried orange peel powder, mixed with lemon juice and rosewater, to combat greasiness. The oranges help in controlling oil production and the lemon juice brightens up your skin! Use this two to three times a week to see the difference!
Multani mitti is considered to be excellent for oily skin. You can make your own multani mitti face pack at home by mixing 2 tablespoons of multani mitti with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and some rosewater. Allow the pack to sit on your face for 15 minutes and then wash it off - it will draw out the excess oil from your skin and keep it clear! You can safely use this twice a week!

3. Minty Fresh
Mint leaves plus honey, sounds like a combination good enough to eat, doesn’t it? Well, use it on your face if you have oily skin and you’ll thank us! Crush some mint leaves (around 7 to 8) and add honey to it. Allow it to dry on your face and then wash off with cold water. The mint acts like an astringent to reduce inflammation. Your skin will feel less oily and more soft and you’ll notice a reduction in pimples too if you use this once a week!
B. For Dry Skin:
Dry skin needs moisturizing to prevent flaking and dead skin accumulation. Let these 3 packs help you out:
1. Milky Way
Use the moisturizing properties of milk to your advantage, since it is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin B, proteins and minerals. For this mask, soak 7 to 8 almonds in water till they become soft and then grind them. Mix the ground almonds with 3 tablespoons of cold raw milk and apply the paste on your face. Do this three times a week to see softer, smoother skin!
2. Bananas Over Bananas
Banana + Olive Oil + Honey = Amazing Skin! For this face pack, mash one banana with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and add a dash of honey to it. The bananas will moisturize your skin and the honey will lock the moisture in. Use it on your face two times a week to let it work its magic on your skin!
3. Saffron Skin Magic
Saffron and cream will come together in this amazing mask to give you glowing skin. Take 2 tablespoons of milk cream and soak 4 to 5 strands of saffron it in for about 15 to 20 minutes. Apply this mixture on your face and wash it off after some time. Use this mild but nourishing face pack three times a week to get glowing skin!

C. For Dull Skin:
Sometimes, your skin just needs a boost of radiance! These 3 face masks will do exactly that:
1. Lemony Magic
Lemons are a godsend for dull skin. This is perhaps the simplest face mask to make. Just take 2 to 3 tablespoons of honey and add a dash of lemon to it. Apply it on your face and let it dry off. You’ll notice an instant glow when you wash it off.
2. Terrific Turmeric
Turmeric, or haldi, is a humble spice that can really take your skincare places. For this mask, mix 3 tablespoons of besan (chickpea flour) with 2 teaspoons of haldi and 2 tablespoons of honey (you can also add curd). Use this on your face (or even your body!) 3 times a week. You’ll soon notice a healthy radiance on your face.
3. Toss Up A Tomato
A slice of tomato can go a long way in brightening your complexion. Mix the pulp of half a tomato with curd and honey and use it on your face twice a week. This is also a great pack for people with oily skin, as tomatoes are known to control oil production in skin!
