Disencrusting Formula (Helps blackheads come out easily)
Dissolve a tsp.of Espom salts (Magnesium Sulphate) in a cup of hot water. Apply to the acne areas with cotton wool. A papaya-mint tea bag dissolved in a cup of hot water and applied on the acne areas also acts as a discencrusting lotion.
Add about 2 to 3 drops of Tr.of Benzoin to a mug of cold water. Rinse face with this. It is antibacterial.
To 2 tsp.of egg white, add 2 pods of crushed garlic and 1 tsp.of calamine. Leave on face for 20 minutes, then rinse off.
250 ml. of rose water, 1/4 tsp. vinegar, 5 drops of glycerine, 2 drops of camphor.

Touch the pimples with spirit of camphor. Keep applying until the pimples dry up. It may "sting" but don't worry. It will check the infection.
To Lighten Scars
Take 1 bunch of green grapes, moisten with water and sprinkle with 1 tbsp. alum and 1 tsp. salt. Wrap grapes in foil and bake in slow oven for 15 minutes. Squeeze the juice of grapes and cover face with the liquid, rinse off after 15 minutes with luke warm water.
Use an ice pack regularly. Wrap ice cubes in a bit of cloth or cotton and apply to the open pore areas. This helps diminish enlarged pores.
