For oily skin, along with sandalwood powder, MultaniMitti should also be mixed in the face pack. You should take 2 teaspoons of MultaniMitti with 1 teaspoon of sandalwood powder and mix it with rose water and apply it to your face. Use except the area around the lips. Wash it off when it dries, but after that moisturize the skin well. 

Another face pack can be used for oily skin. You mix two teaspoons of gram flour with half a teaspoon of sandalwood powder and make a paste by mixing rose water and a pinch of turmeric with it. Apply this paste to your face and then after 20-30 minutes wash the face and moisturize it.  

Face pack for normal to dry skin 

If you are one of those people whose skin is either normal or dry side, then you can mix 3 teaspoons of flour, 1 teaspoon sandalwood powder, 1 teaspoon curd and 1 teaspoon honey and add rose water to it. The consistency of your paste should neither be too thick nor too thin. Apply it to the face and avoid the area around the lips. Leave it on the face for half an hour and then wash off with cold water. After this, you must moisturize your skin because it is very important.
