Vitamin C Boost For Youthfulness

Facial skin is never covered. And, therefore, it meets the most stress, pollution and sun.

Having a beauty regime and spending money on maintaining the facial skin is important. And, in this quest scores of rupees are spent and we are least bothered about it.

Recently, I stumbled upon a discussion on Vitamin C and how it is beneficial for body and skin.

I am anyways a lover of lemons and would squeeze a thick slice of lemon into my water bottle and drink it all day through. And also add a few drops into my face pack.

Thus, reading those good words made me realize that thankgod I am already in the right path.

But what new I added to my routine was the usage of Amla or Gooseberry.

And ever since then, I will wont shy but say that I have garnered lots of compliments on becoming more youthful, glowy and vibrant. As if I just got an hour long facial done from salon.

Amla contains more Vitamin C than a lemon or orange. It has a high amounts of antioxidants and other purifying properties which makes Amla good for both internal and external usage.

Extremely cost effective and fuss-free in usage. Try this scrub.


  1. 1 tbsp. Amla Powder (Only use Amla Powder that is meant for consumption not for hair coloring)
  2. 1 tbsp. water


Mix amla powder in water and spread it all over your face as a mask.
Let the Vitamin C juices of Amla sink into skin and loosen the dead skin cells.
Air drying for 15 minutes.
Press your wet palms on face and rehydrate the Amla face pack.
Now begin scrubbing.
Amla scrub is gently yet so effective.
Scrubbing with amla means you are not using tiny plastic beads or crushed walnut shell, but dried and powdered amla fruit and its fibre.
Its absolutely brilliant in making the face free from the bums of dead cells and yield a smooth and well nourished facial skin.

My method of using Amla as a face pack is very basic but it can be upgraded and mixed with honey, rose water, besan, etc. for a more luxurious experience.

Disclaimer - Vitamin C reacts negatively in sun exposure. While, lemons and amla are supposed to lighten pigmentation, moving out into the sun during or after applying the pack will do the opposite and you will do havoc to your skin. Therefore, not just amla but any citrus fruit and essential oils of them are not supposed to be used on face during the day. I apply my amla pack after dinner, wash off, moisturize and sleep.
