Often referred to as the ‘Queen of herbs’, Tulsi is one of the most sacred plants in Ayurveda. Revered for its Sattvic nature, Tulsi is loaded with medicinal and skincare benefits. To name a few, it is a potent blood purifier that pacifies Vata and Pitta and helps eliminate accumulated impurities which later manifest themselves as acne, blemishes, and textural irregularities.

Here are some tulsi-based face packs that will bring some balance to your life and complexion.

Tulsi and Milk Brightening Face Pack

  • Apply the paste on your face and keep it on for 15-20 min.
  • Wash it off with cold water.
  • Use this pack twice a week for glowing, radiant skin.

Tulsi Face Pack To Reduce Acne and Acne Scars

  • Mix 4-5 tulsi leaves with 1 tbsp of orange peel powder.
  • Make a thick paste and apply it on your face for 10-15 min.
