Sometimes, the skin of shoulder becomes darker than the brighter complexion of our face. The difference in skin tone seems to be visible enough in spite of applying makeup. Actually, due to excessive sweating the sweat gets accumulated on the areas around neck and this makes that area darker compared to the skin tone of face. However, by taking a little extra care we can easily make the areas around our neck and the shoulder area much brighter and fairer. In this case, using the natural remedies is the best option.
But to get the desired result, it needs to be a complete care. Today we get to understand how to completely take care of our necklines and shoulder areas. You will also get to know how to perform a step by step skin care routine from beginning to end. Apart from this we will also talk about the benefits of the ingredients used in this process.
Things required for making the neck brightening scrub:
- 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- ½ tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon Graded Coffee
- A Vitamin C tablet cut into half
First put the coconut oil in a bowl and mix the graded coffee in it. Now again mix the baking powder to it and mix the whole mixture properly. Now make a powder out of the Vitamin C tablet and mix it into it. Thus you get your desired neck brightening scrub.
Store the scrub separately. Now we are going to make a face Pack.
Let’s take a look at the things we will need to make the pack.
- 1 teaspoon Aloe Gel
- ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon Coconut Milk
- ½ teaspoon lemon juice
Mix together the Coconut Milk, turmeric powder and lime juice in a bowl. Then mix the Aloe Vera Juice in it. If you want a thicker paste, then blend the mixture in a food blender.
Now after you are done preparing the scrub and the pack you should start for the application. Here the whole process is described step by step.
Soak a towel in hot water and wrap the whole towel around your shoulder. Wait for 5 to 7 minutes. This will open up the closed pores which will help in bringing out the dirt from inside.
Now apply the scrub which you have prepared all over the shoulder. Massage the scrub gently in a circular motion for 10 minutes. Do not massage by applying excess pressure as this may cause skin damage. After 10 minutes, massage the neck with warm water to wash and dry.
Apply the pack all over the dry skin around the shoulder and neck with a brush. Wait till it dries. After 15 to 20 minutes when it dries totally wash it off with warm water just like before.
Apply a thin layer of moisturizer all over your cleaned neck and shoulder. Follow this process at least once a week and you will see a visible difference within a short time.
