As per now, I am very obsessed with the weather over South India (Tamil nadu). They call it winter season?? Nope! It’s still summer in here. Due to the random change in the weather conditions, our skin gets not only dry but it losing the hydration completely. I have combinational to normal skin type, so my T- zone areas (due to rapid change in weather) look like cement concrete (dry), elsewhere skin is normal. I wondered, I don’t how I suppose to hydrate my skin? I was tried over search engines by looking over the solution for uprooting skin hydration. Hence, I came across the uses of banana with honey. It was quiet satisfying. Yet need to improvise! So again I browsed and came to know about the wonders of cucumber and sandalwood.
They all work as smoothing agent, for soothing and skin hydration. This is what Is looking for! So I made them as pack and apply as hydration face pack twice a week. Now it’s all hydrated. So, let me introduce my hydration face pack here in this tutorial.

Tip: Women who have acne prone skin can reduce the amount of cucumber and sandalwood powder for this pack. Because, both are highly cooling agents, so they may enhance acne sometimes. Don’t add fuller’s earth to this pack, it may completely alter the pack.

Tip: Use a fork to smash banana with mixture. Don’t use finger as it may get clumsy.
How to Use?:
Clean your face with cleanser and pat dry. Now apply the hydration pack on face, leave 20-15 minutes and wash with luke warm or tap water. Don’t leave pack to over dry on your skin then the washing process goes little bit difficult. For starters it may feel little tingling due to the banana usage in pack. Also don’t add water to the pack. While applying you may feel greasy but you should wait 15 minutes to see some wonders on your skin. After this pack skin feels hydrated and soothing.
Tidbit: Use this pack thrice or twice a week. It removes dullness and excess sebum on surface of skin and leaves hydrated.
