    I work as a market researcher and so need to travel a lot. Sometimes back, my skin colour was so drastically changed, that I myself used to feel horrified to take a glance at the mirror. Then my colleague asked me to apply a mask of almond oil and sandalwood powder to remove the suntan. Within a couple of weeks, I started regaining my original skin colour.
    I think sandalwood is a boon to our society.

    Sandalwood even makes the skin bright and marks-free. And thank you for the home made pimple free face mask, as my skin is too pimple prone.
