  • Each skin is unique, so always do a patch test before trying this to avoid any reaction.

3. Prevents skin infections

Since most of the ingredients that are used in the homemade bath powder contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components, they can prevent skin infection and allergies.

4. Lightens scars

Ingredients like rose petals and amla lighten scars really well, if used regularly. In fact, amla can also help clear the pesky acne and those blemishes. 

5. Makes your skin glow

Sandalwood contains natural skin lightening agents, and is used in many fairness face packs. And because this powder acts as a mild exfoliant, it can remove all dead skin cells, giving a nice glow to your skin.
