1. To Make A Beetroot Face Pack:

Beetroot Juice (5-6 tsp)

Grate some beetroot juice in a bowl and soak a cotton ball in the juice.
Proceed to dab the cotton ball onto your face. Be careful to avoid the eyes and the mouth, unless you don’t mind pink teeth. Be careful to use enough to wet the skin, but don’t let it slide down your face.
Allow the juice to settle for a couple of minutes before reapplying a fresh layer with a new cotton ball. The second layer ensures that your face is covered with beetroot juice.
Allow it to dry for 15-20 minutes. Don’t touch your face as you may remove the juice and even stain your hands. Remember to remove it after 20 minutes as it may leave stains.
Immerse a washcloth or a napkin in warm water. Proceed to wipe the beetroot juice in circular motions.
