1. Honey And Lemon For A Great Glow
Simar Rana, Senior Lifestyle Writer
I have a super simple home remedy that I use regularly - it's just a mix of honey and lemon! A spoonful of honey and half a lemon squeezed into a bowl together. Just dip a cotton ball into it and apply it all over your face. Leave it on for 10 minutes and wash off with cold water. Do this regularly for clear and glowing skin. It always seems to work for me!
2. Tomatoes To De-Tan
Sharon Alphonso, Lifestyle Writer
Whenever I get a tan, I use tomato pulp to brighten my skin. Take it from me, it’s the best! Long ago, my aunt suggested that I give it a shot. I’m glad I listened to her. All you’ve got to do is dice a tomato into tiny cubes and mash the pieces up till you’re left with just the pulp. Using your fingertips, massage your skin with the tomato pulp. Leave it to dry for about 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with chilled water after. I always do this once a week, and it makes my skin clear and healthy.
3. Besan To Brighten Up Dull Skin
Gopika E.M, Social Media Manager
After a long summer vacation, and getting super tanned, all I want is to get my skin to glow again. For this, I make a paste out of gram flour (besan), lemon, honey and yogurt and apply a thick layer on my face for 15 mins. After I wash it off, I take a few drops of olive oil and dab it on my face to restore moisture. After 7-8 days of doing it religiously, my skin gets its glow back!!
4. Gram Flour And Rose Water To Beat Breakouts
Anushree Sharma, Product Manager
I have a constant acne problem and my mother told me a very simple solution that really works for me! I use a simple homemade besan (gram flour) pack and it has really helped clear my skin. Take about 2 spoons of besan and mix it will a little bit of rose water. I also add about half a teaspoon of curd it in. Apply this on your face for about 20 minutes till it dries and then wash off with a lukewarm water.
5. Multani Mitti For A Clearer Complexion
Tanaya Seth, Editorial Coordinator
There is an amazing 10 minute face pack for glowing skin which you can use whenever you are home. It’s as simple as just making a paste by mixing multani mitti
with rose water. Use a cotton ball to apply this paste to your face and leave it for 10-15 minutes till your skin starts to feel cool. Wash it off with cold water and just use a baby wipe to further clean your face. This face pack works wonders for all types of skins and helps in reducing acne and acne marks too.
