How to use the DIY face pack?

Jangda recommends mixing one ingredient from the four categories to use it as a face pack. Leave it on for 15-30 minutes, and either rinse it off or scrape your skin upwards with gentle strokes to remove dead skin cells.

If you have skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, urticaria, or sensitive skin, consult our skin specialists for herbal applications and medication.
