Everybody desires beautiful, flawless, and perfect skin but most do not know how to go about it. The truth is that instead of depending on chemical-based beauty products, it is much preferable to opt for natural and organic beauty regimes and recipes.

One reason why it is safer to use natural beauty packs is that they are safer as you determine what to add and what not to. It is also cost-effective as you can use plants and roots around you to make some of these recipes.
Thus, in this article, I would be showing 3 natural face packs you can use for beautiful skin;
1. Lemon Juice And Fullers Earth Face Pack For Pimple Scars: For this face pack, you would need turmeric, lemon, and fuller’s earth. The fuller’s earth is known for its ability to fight against acne and blemishes. Because it is rich in Magnesium Chloride, it also helps to fight against acne scars and keeps the skin clean. Turmeric is an antiseptic that helps to keep the PH level of the skin while lemon juice cleans the skin and makes it germ-free.
-PROCEDURE: Mix two teaspoons of fuller’s earth with a pinch of turmeric powder and a teaspoon of sandalwood wood (basically for fragrance). Mix into a fine paste by adding in lemon juice. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it to dry before washing it off. Do this 3 to 4 times a week for better results.

2. Aloe Vera Face Pack To Remove Sun Tan And Black Spots: Aloe Vera is known as one of the most ancient beauty ingredients to have been used by man. The aloe vera leaves have amazing compounds like mannans, lectins, polysaccharides, and many others. The gel gotten from the aloe vera serves as a good solution for removing sun tan and dark spots caused by sun rays.
-PROCEDURE: Extract the gel from the aloe vera leaves into a bowl, add in a few drops of lemon juice, and stir until they mix properly. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it there for about 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
