Winters are finally here and so are the common skincare woes associated with winters. Maintaining the dignity of your skin during the harsh winters involves a lot of confusion. What moisturizer to use? Which exfoliator will be the best? These are some of the common dilemmas that we face. But the most difficult one according to me is, what face pack to use. This is because face packs are usually drying and you don’t want to aggravate your already dry skin even more. But thankfully there are some amazing homemade face mask recipes which do the job they are supposed to do without drying out your skin. Here are the best homemade face packs to get your skin winter ready.
1. If your skin is oily- For people with oily skin, gram flour based face packs work great.

Even after that, the gram flour doesn’t dry out the skin. post the gram flour mask, your skin feels soft and supple along with a radiant glow. To make this face pack combine gram flour with rose water and then apply it on your face and neck. Wash it off with plain cold water when dry.
