Summers are finally here and this time the heat is unbearable. The temperature is rising day by day leaving your skin sunburned, tanned and damaged by the end of the season, if proper care is not taken.
Summer brings many skin problems like sunburn, tanning, acne, pimples and oily skin dirt. To reduce the impact of summer on our delicate skin it’s very essential that we take care of our skin by using homemade face packs to remove dead skin cells. Today I will be sharing some tried-and-tested face packs that will enhance glow of your skin. These packs will also soothe your face as they are specially customized for summer. 🙂
