A high-protein diet can wreck havoc on your skin, because your protein intake is one of many factors that might put you at a risk of developing acne. Protein can enter the bloodstream in a when applied topically, which means you can topically use protein rich face packs and get the same effect. Here are three protein packed face packs that you can make at home to get flawless skin.

To make this face mask boil one raw beetroot for about 45 minutes and let it cool. Then toss 1 teaspoon of fresh mint leaves, 1 tablespoon of chopped cucumber, and half of a whole beetroot. Blend well until you get a smooth paste-like consistency. Apply this paste onto your face and after 5 minutes wash it off with warm water. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel.
Rose and Orange Peel Powder Face Pack:
You can use soft rose petals for this face pack, but you have to make the orange peel powder by drying out the peels under the sun for a few days and then powdering them finely.
