- Add about 4 teaspoons of blueberry crush and ½ teaspoon fuller’s earth and blend into a smoothie.
- Apply the mask before bedtime and leave for 20 minutes. Then rinse using ice cold water.

Blue Berry Face Pack # 2: Using Curd:
- Take 3 teaspoons of hung curd and two teaspoons of crushed blueberries.
- Mix to form a smooth paste and refrigerate for half an hour before application.
- Make sure the paste is thick enough to stay on the face and not drip.
- Apply the cold pack on the face and leave for 15 minutes.
- Wash with warm water.
This pack makes the skin even, deeply moisturizes and also leaves the skin supple. Do not apply the pack to very oily skin, as yogurt adds to the oiliness and will make the face more greasy and unmanageable.
