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 these home remedies for skin to get clear and glowing skin.

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. Doing these home remedies for skin once a week makes my skin clear and healthy.

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!!
