Mix together equal amounts of fuller’s earth, rose water, and sandalwood powder.
Apply this mixture on your face as a face pack.
Let it dry out naturally, and then wash it off with lukewarm water.
Repeat daily for very oily skin, or two or three times a week for moderately oily skin.

Fuller’s earth can reduce the appearance of wound scars, minor burn marks or any other kind of scars to a great extent.

Mix together ½ tablespoon each of fuller’s earth, vitamin E oil and lemon juice.
