Post By: Aditi Singha, Asst. Editor, Elegant Eves

Hello ladies, on my way to another article of a natural product. Today I will be discussing on Sandalwood, an aromatic wood obtained from the tree Santalum album, commonly known as chandan. This wood is used as a beauty product from time unknown. It acts as an antiseptic, astringent, anti-inflammatory as well as a disinfectant one. WOW… truly versatile. Isn’t it? Let’s check how it serves to our skin.

*      Curing pimples and acne: The most common use of sandalwood powder is to remove acne and pimples. 
Mix sandalwood powder with turmeric powder and milk.
Gently apply it on your face and rinse after some time.
Regular use of this pack would certainly bring positive result.

But it is better to use homemade face packs as there is no harmful chemical used and most importantly you know what your skin demands. Stay tuned and enjoy.. :)
