Things you will need for this skincare pack

* A little bit of rice flour
* Some potato juice
* Lemon juice
* But, if you have dry skin, you can use honey instead of lemon juice
* A little bit of rose water

Begin by mixing the rice flour with three tablespoons of potato juice. After that, add some lemon juice or honey to the mixture, based on your skin type and texture. Mix them all well, till it becomes a paste. To this, add the rose water. Make sure that the paste does not become too thick or it will be difficult for you to apply it to the face.

Next, you must begin to apply it on the face; massage in circular motions and do it for a good 2 or 3 minutes. Leave the paste on for 15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water. For better results, do it once every week, or even twice. Besides bleaching the hair, the pack promises to make the skin healthy and rid it of other kinds of problems, too, like excessive dryness, or oiliness.
