Let’s be honest, we all want youthful, radiant skin. We’re all a little envious of that girl who barely wears makeup yet manages to turn heads with her perfectly gleaming skin from across the room. Well, time to let go of that envy because attaining that gorgeous glow just became a lot easier. Here are a few at home remedies to achieve that instant glow! Enjoy!
Take 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of honey. Mix until the honey dissolves. Moisten your face, apply and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Both honey and lemon work as a natural bleacher. This is a great way to naturally lighten acne scars and dark spots. Wash your face thoroughly with cold water.
Oats work as a great exfoliator, leaving your skin perfectly shiny and smooth. Simply take ½ cup of oats and add a bit of warm water. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes and apply once the oats and water have turned into a paste like consistency. Apply it on your face and gently rub and massage in a circular motion with your fingers. Rub harder around and on the nose to remove blackheads, for 15 minutes. Then, wash off with cold water. This will make your skin smooth and fair.
Take a tomato and rub the tomato pulp on the skin. Rub all over your face and leave for 15 minutes. Tomato contains natural bleaching properties, which helps in lighten the skin color. Rinse thoroughly with cold water after 15 minutes.
Take rice and make a fine powder in the grinder. The powder should feel like a smooth white exfoliator. Mix enough milk in it to form a paste. Apply it on your moisten face and scrub your skin for 15-20 minutes. The paste will fall automatically while you rub your face. Let the whole scrub fall, and then, wash your face with cold water. Rice will exfoliate the skin and remove the dead cells. It will improve the blood circulation. As a result, you will get the smooth, clean, blackheads-free glowing skin in minutes.
Take some sugar. Add lemon juice and a few drops of olive oil to it. Mix it well and use it as an exfoliator. Olive oil will moisten your skin, sugar will remove dead cells, and lemon juice will naturally bleach your skin.
Take a tablespoon of milk and add a few drops of lemon to it. Massage face and neck with this milk. This will soften and moisten your skin naturally, within a few minutes. Wash off the face after 20 minutes.
