Not using specific and suitable ingredient for your skin type :
Egg white is best for oily skin while egg-yolk is a boon for dry-skinned ladies. This and other facts should be definitely taken into consideration before choosing ingredients for your homemade remedy. Like, it is not wise for everyone to apply besan, which remains to be one of the most popular ingredients used in remedies. It dries out the skin and therefore should be used by people with oily skin after adding some rose water.
On the other hand, girls with dry skin may add few drops of olive or other oil before applying besan on their face to prevent chapping. Some people also add milk to their packs without fail as they’ve heard a lot about the fairness properties it has. But in reality, it cannot be great for acne-prone oily-skin, who can choose curd instead for their remedy.
Not grinding the nuts in your home-scrubs fine: This one is the serious of all and one of the biggest mistakes any one can put to action. Not grinding your nuts like; walnuts, almonds etc, to perfection and using it in your home-remedies can be rough on your skin and result in abrasion causing rashes and marks. So, always make sure to use finely grounded nuts to scrub off your face as the coarse particles can adversely affect your delicate skin.
Not Scrubbing in upward motion: Same goes for scrubbing your face in anti-clockwise of downward motion can also result into early signs of aging; like premature wrinkles and fine lines. Though a petty fact, if not taken in account, it can cause serious troubles for your skin in the long run. Therefore, one must always make sure to massage the home-grown scrub in upward motion to assist proper blood flow and welcome young and healthy skin.
Using a remedy without expert consultation: Last but not the least, as half knowledge is good for nothing, always make sure to use these home-remedies after exert prescription only.
