No time for expensive salon treatments? Fret not, we bring you tried-and-tested home remedies that will make you glow from within.
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.
