Easy Summer Facepacks -DIY

Summer is here and so am I. It is my subtle way of saying I am not here much. But I am sure you are going to love this post. I am lazy to even use the store bought facepacks just because It takes time to wash it off. If you are anything like me then this post is for you.

I am sharing 3 face packs with you in this post. So lets get to it.

Papaya face pack  argvwef

Papaya : Do I even have to talk about its benefits both health and beauty. This fruit is easily available these days. You just need a little bit of it and rest you can eat it or put it in your salad. Healthy living I say.:-P . You don’t have to cover the face with a thick layer of papaya pulp, you just need a spoonful of it. Apply on the face and let it dry. Meanwhile you can get to the remaining papaya. You will feel the skin tighten as it dries, wash it off with cold water.

It cleans the pores, removes tan and gives a healthy glow to the skin.


Watermelon : Who can forget this during summer? This is our summer staple and this is one of my favorite too. Unlike Papaya, you need not mash it, you can just take a small piece and rub it all over the face. Leave it on till dries and wash it with cold water.

This cools down the skin and removes any dirt from the skin. Once you wash you will see a much cleaner face.


Cucumber : Summers and we don’t talk about this?! Cucumber is popularly known for its beauty benefits and lets not get into its health benefits, this post will take forever then. Once used on skin, it removes tan,cleans the pores,cools down the skin, Closes the pores.

  • Take a slice of cucumber and rub it all over the face. Once dried, wash it off.
  • Grate the cucumber and apply it roughly all over the face. Dry it and wash it off with cold water.
  • Grate the cucumber, squeeze the juice and apply this on the skin. Let it dry and wash it off with plain cold water.

Though I prefer the store bought products, these packs are good to use during summers. They feel light on the skin and cools down the skin. Ideally I am sure you can use any fruit on skin. I can bear the smell of these 3 and oranges, but we don’t get oranges now so, these 3 should do for me.

  • They feel light on the skin.
  • Dries off quickly.
  • Cools down the skin.
  • Calms the sun burnt skin.
  • Pore cleansers and closers.
  • Clears the skin
  • Gives Healthy glow.

What more do you need from the face Packs. Go try it out and let me know how you feel.Do leave in the comments your summer facial fruit.

Till the next post take care..mwah.

DIY – Facial Toners

In one of my last posts (https://beautywisetalks.wordpress.com/2015/06/06/all-about-the-skin-toners/ )I mentioned about the beauty benefits of using toners. In this I am sharing few toners which can be made and used in a jiffy.



This is one product which is so versatile and used extensively in face packs. After cleansing just wipe the face with rosewater and done. Good for all skin types.

Cucumber water

Grate a cucumber and squeeze out the juice. Apply it to the face using a cotton pad. Can be stored for a week if refrigerated properly.

Green Tea

This is my favourite toner of all time. Just boil water and a green tea bag or leaves, leave it for 10 mins, strain and store it. Use it when ever is needed.

Ice cubes

Yes, Ice cubes. Rub the ice cube all over the face after cleansing it helps in closing the pores and tightening the skin.

Lemon Water

Who can leave lemon when it comes to DIY’s. Take the juice from one lemon and add same amount of distilled water (or just boil the water and cool it). Toner s ready. Excellent for oily skin and for removing the tan too.

Aloevera juice

You can directly take aloevera juice onto the cotton pad and use it as a toner or add few drops of lemon juice to it and use.

Mint/Basil/Neem leaves

Boil required amount of water add any of the above mentioned leaves, simmer it for 5 minutes. Let it cool,strain and use it. Can be stored. But make it in small amounts as there are no preservatives added in these.

Bonus Tip: You can add little sea salt to the solution. Removes the left over grim and dirt.

Last word:

Do not wipe away the Toners, Let them dry on their own when applied.

Always dilute the lemon juice when used on the face. These are the ones which I have tried and use. I find them very effective as I can make them according to my needs. Let me know which toner You use everyday
