Sandalwood is one of the most natural ingredients available around the house. You can either use a sandalwood stick and then grate it on a stone surface to get natural extracts or you can use pure sandalwood powder to create different masks. The beauty of the sandalwood is that it calms and soothes the skin which fights acne and pimples along with giving a radiant and healthy glow.
