Today, maintaining the skin you are born with is probably too tough a task to manage, considering your busy schedule, the ever increasing pollution in every aspect of life (air, water, food) which eventually dampens not only your internal hygiene, but it also shows up on your external appearance. Skin, one of the most important aspects of personal beauty and how you present yourself, is very sensitive to pollution, UV rays from the sun, and the constant wear and tear of today’s life.
So what are the natural ways by which you can get a glowing skin?
Here are ten ways, how using natural ingredients (available in almost every household) can work wonders with maintaining your own personal skin appearance and to preserve its natural glow:-
Lemon - Dark spots and blemishes can be the biggest threat to achieving the desired glowing skin. The acidic property of lemon, not only lightens skin tone, it also completely eradicates darkening of certain regions of the skin. Applying it with a cotton swab on a daily basis can be miraculous and go a long way in getting a naturally glowing skin.
Warning: if direct usage of lemon causes slight irritation, you can always dilute it with a few spoons of water. Also, lemon helps in removing the itchiness of the skin and scalp, and is extraordinary in treating dandruff.
Milk - Just like a glass of milk daily can make up for the lack of nutrients and essential vitamins, you may carelessly leave out of your diet, it can also be very useful in getting a naturally radiant skin.
Mix, 1 teaspoon of milk with 1 teaspoon of honey and apply on your face and neck (on a daily basis) to furnish the radiance, your skin naturally possesses in just a few weeks.
Turmeric - Turmeric, like lemon can completely heal hyper pigmented or tanned regions of the skin. All you have to do is apply a mix of 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and 3 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice to yield the benefit of this cancer healing natural ingredient, in getting a naturally glowing skin.
Egg Pack - “Sunday ho ya Monday, roz khao ande” was a very popular phrase heard growing up exposed to Indian television and media. The significance of the phrase was to reap the benefits that an egg daily can bring about to your overall growth and development and to maintain the protein levels your body needs. Besides, the benefits it provides on consumption, applying it raw to your face can also help a lot, as the egg white proteins can restore the natural glow of your skin. Daily application of the raw egg, and after it is dried, removal of it via washing is the recommended procedure in getting a naturally glowing skin.
Tomato - Something as common as a tomato can work way better, than the overly expensive readymade skin creams, in achieving the skin you relish. Applying a puree of 1-2 tomatoes, along with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice on your face daily, will do the needed justice to your skin.
Hot Oil Body Massage- Using oil before taking a bath is almost mandatory, according to some of my friends and my mother. But heating the oil before doing it is what can bring a huge difference, especially with the way the oil will interact with your skin and will help in the path to getting a naturallyglowing skin. The hot oil increases circulation of blood, and can be anti bacterial in nature, healing the skin and removing dead cells, as you massage it. After the massage is over, keep it on your skin for 30 minutes, before washing it off.
Yogurt Pack - A simple yogurt face pack can also do a lot of good to your stressed out skin. Bearing the same advantageous properties of milk, it also comes with added benefits. It cools your skin, and helps to fade out darkened regions. The pack can be made out of 2 teaspoons of dahi (yogurt) and 1 teaspoon of honey. Doing this on a daily basis, can help you reap the miraculous benefits of yogurt, as an ingredient.
Fruit pack - A homemade fruit pack/facemask can also be very beneficial. Mixing the pulp of 3 integral fruits - Avocado, papaya and cucumber into a few spoons of natural cream, should help you in getting a naturally glowing skin.
Rose Water - Rose water can help soothe your tired skin and even out its complexion, lightening it. Adding it to homemade face packs or just simply, can provide the magic touch.
