Skincare routine is crucial if you want to keep your skin healthy and glowing. But blindly following someone else’s skin care routine can cause more damage than benefit. The type of skin care routine depends on the kind of skin that you have. There are four types of skin: normal, oily, dry, and combination. Combination skin type refers to the sort of skin that is both dry and oily. In combination skin, the T-zone is oily while the cheeks are either dry or normal. Here are seven home-made face packs that are suitable for combination skin. Made of readily-available ingredients that are entirely natural, these face packs will make your skin radiant if you apply them regularly.
Honey and Lemon Juice:
For honey and lemon juice face pack, mix one tablespoon of honey with lemon juice to make a smooth paste. Apply the face pack on your face and let it dry for 15 minutes. Wash it off with water.
Honey is an excellent moisturiser while lemon juice is known for its anti-tanning properties.
Rosewater and Curd:
Mix one tablespoon of curd with rosewater and honey to make a smooth paste. Apply the face pack on your face and let it dry for 10 minutes. Wash it off with water.

Oats and Curd:
Mix grounded oats with curd to make a face scrub and then scrub it on the face in circular motions. Focus on your T-zone during the scrubbing and then, wash it off.
The curd is a hydrating agent while oats exfoliate the dead skin cells.
