Skin care isn’t easy and if the humidity outside is making you hate your skin, give it some TLC.

And, instead of spending mean bucks, play smart and spend a fraction of the Rupees on this ONE ingredient that is god-sent for all oily skin babes.

Presenting… *drummmrooollllll*… DRY YEAST.

No. Seriously.
Dry yeast– which is otherwise used for baking- is an ingredient easily available. And if you don’t have a baking gene in your body, buy the brand I turn to here.

Eagle Dry Yeast (that’s literally just Rs 160 for 500gms) is a smart girls BFF for oily-skincare. It translates to an easy face mask that you can cake on any lazy afternoon at home for some #InstaRelief from greasy skin.

EAGLE INSTANT DRY YEAST is priced superbly at Rs 160 for 500gms. It’s 100% vegetarian. So #CakeItOn– both on the face and in the batter!

Once the yeast comes home, here’s how to get your face mask ready:

  • A dry bowl to prepare the facepack in and a brush to mix/apply it
  • 2-3 table spoons of Eagle Instant Dry Yeast
  • 1-2 table spoons of Lemon Juice
  • Chilled Rose Water

Ingredients in place, mix it all together. The consistency of the paste should be thick enough to easily stick on to your face and not too runny.

You can also add a couple of drops of tea tree oil into the preparation if you’re suffering from acne.

Once applied, keep it on for 15 minutes and wash it off when dry

Disclaimer: If this preparation works best on oily skin, it will work the opposite on dry skin (DUH!!). So if you have combination skin, apply a good moisturising cream post use. I usually face-pack before stepping in for a bath, so depending on how my skin feels later, I slather on suitable sunscreen.

Ridzeepop #TipToTake: Ideally, gel based face products work best for oily skin and cream based for dry skin.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF YEAST MASK
It instantly refreshes your skin, making you feel peaceful… because your skin will feel so damn good! Also, it’s rich in Vitamin B complex and so good for reducing acne and, over time, fine lines.

HOW OFTEN TO APPLY THIS MASK?
Twice a week is good. Masking before bathing is a smart move!

CAN I STORE THIS MASK FOR FUTURE USE?
While yeast itself can be stored in an air tight container, it’s best to prepare the mask fresh for a single-time use.

CAN I USE YEAST ON MY FACE IF I HAVE DRY SKIN?
Ofcourse you can! Simply mix some yogurt into the pack and you’re good to go. Do moisturise your skin post use.


So, that was that. My second beauty and skin care post. Read the first on refreshing face mists you can use this summer. It’s strange that I’ve done very little skin care posts, considering I personally lay so much emphasis on it. Depending on the reception this gets, I will write more.

So do let me know if you’d like more.

Till then, #WerkItGirl
