Sandalwood powder bleaches the skin and removes tanning. Rose water cools down inflamed cells. And Neem oil flushes free radical and dead skin cells from the surface. The resulting skin is toned and fairer.
2. Anti-Acne Face Wash
Sensitive skin can become dry as well as oily due to weather change. And It leads to severe acne that is very hard to combat. What you need in this case is a safe anti-acne face wash that wouldn’t disturb the skin’s pH. In order to make one yourself, you need honey, aspirin and distilled water.

Honey kills acne causing bacteria and flushes them out from the skin. And aspirin reduces acne induced pain and inflammation without disturbing the skin’s pH.

Sensitive skin gets dark due to weather change and pollution. What you need for maintaning your fairness in all seasons is a gentle chemical-free face wash. To make one at home, you will need Shea Butter, bentonite clay and rose water.

Bentonite clay will remove dead cells, dirt, blackheads, whiteheads and sebum. It will fade acne marks and sunspots. Shea butter will hydrate and moisturize shrunken cells. This will make dull skin radiant. And rose water will maintain the skin’s pH. The resulting skin will be twice fairer and brighter.
4. Anti-Aging Face Wash
Sun, pollution, free radicals and many other reasons result in premature skin aging. But it gets worse with sensitive skin, because you cannot use retinol based serums. But the face wash we have listed will reverse the clock for you. What you need is, egg white, raw milk and aloe vera juice.
