 The festival of lights is just around the corner, and with it comes running around for gift shopping, thorough cleaning of the house, buying new clothes and cooking delicious meals.
While you are slogging to get your home spotlessly clean and tidy, you are forgetting that these hectic activities and sleep-deprivation does take a toll on your delicate skin.
Hence, it is of utmost importance that you take out some ‘me time’ and pamper yourself, because dull and dry skin can dampen the festive spirit.
We bring you five easy-peasy home remedies for skincare, with ingredients that are not only readily available in your kitchen but will also ensure that you retain the lovely festive glow, throughout the celebrations.
1. Glow like a dream with this yogurt and lemon juice face mask

Take half a cup of yogurt, add one tablespoon of lemon juice and mix them well.  Apply generously all over the face and neck. Since lemon contains Vitamin C, it smoothens the skin and also works as an exfoliator.

Yogurt on the other hand tightens the skin and helps in shrinking the pores. Since both yogurt and lemon are natural bleaching agents, it is advisable to wash off the mask within 10 minutes of application.

People with sensitive skin are advised to do a patch test before applying this pack to the face to see how their skin reacts.

2. Get rid of acne with this honey and cinnamon mask

Pure, raw honey is a natural moisturising agent, and when coupled with cinnamon powder, it makes a really potent anti-acne, glowing-skin face mask. Cinnamon is well-known for its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Mix two tablespoons of raw honey and one tablespoon of cinnamon powder and apply it using your fingers on a clean face, while avoiding the delicate eye area. Wash off the mask after 15 minutes and feel your clear and dewy skin.

Also, do keep in mind that the honey you usually find in grocery stores isn’t the one that will give you the desired results. We recommend getting your hands on manuka honey for best results.

3. Diminish those pesky dark circles with potato juice

Don’t we all hate how dark circles make us look like either we are sick or haven’t had a good night’s sleep since forever?

Instead of keeping sliced potato on your eyes, we suggest you grate one small, peeled potato and squeeze the juice using a wash cloth. Apply the juice liberally under your eyes and leave it overnight.

You will definitely wake up to a fresher-looking face. Potato contains natural bleaching property that can help lighten the skin under your eyes and also prevent puffiness around them.

4. Say buh-bye to dull skin using this tomato and milk face mask

Take two table spoons of tomato juice and half a cup of fresh milk (raw), mix and carefully apply this mask with the help of a cotton ball. Rinse your face with cool water after 20 minutes and get supple, fresh and squeaky-clean skin.

5. Brighten your skin with yogurt and oatmeal

 

We have saved the best for last. Yogurt and oatmeal combined together are extremely helpful for removing suntan, pigmentation and give a sublime glow that cannot be obtained even with makeup.

Take two tablespoons of yogurt and one tablespoon of oats, and mix them thoroughly.

Apply all over your face and neck softly in a massaging motion. Leave the pack on for 20 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water.

We bet you will not to be able to resist caressing your smooth and supple skin after trying any of these magical home-made masks. We hope these home-made DIY masks help you get selfie-ready this Diwali season.
