Skin care may take back seat in everyday hustle-bustle. This provides an opportunity to chemical-laden cosmetics, stress and improper eating habits to attack and snatch off skin’s natural radiance and glow. Since lifestyle and skin care contributes greatly not only to your looks but also on how you feel about yourself, you must take care of it.
Cleanse, tone and moisturise daily
The rule of thumb for flawless glowing facial skin still remains a regular cleansing, toning and moisturising routine. When it comes to cleansing, rose water is the best cleasing agent. Take cotton wool, dab it with rose water and apply it on the face to feel fresh and clean immediately. Cleansing your face twice a day will prevent breakout of pimples. Always make it a point to follow your cleansing routine by toning. Tulsi water is a great nourishing toner and you can use it with a piece of cotton wool. Now, make a mixture of onion juice, multani mitti and honey. Use this as a natural moisturiser to bring back freshness and glow on your face. Use this for achiving a glowing face.
Use lime juice as a scrub
Mix lime juice with sweet almond oil and sea salt. Use your fingers or a cotton wool and apply it on your face in a circular motion. This natural scrub will remove dead cells from your face giving a radiant glow. Lime peel also aids in fading scars and pimple marks from face.
Use besan (gram flour) to get rid of tan
To treat sunburns, you may apply a mixture of one spoon of besan (Gram Flour) and two tablespoon of curd on your face. Let it dry for half an hour and rinse off with cold water. This face mask is a great aid in making your skin clear, soft and glowing naturally. For sensitive skin, mix curd with this mixture and cleanse the sun tanned skin with the paste.
Beauty tips for soft skin
Cucumber – A wonderful beauty aid
If you want a happy skin, then cucumber is the answer. You may improve your complexion by applying a paste of cucumber mixed with raw milk. It will take 15 minutes for cucumber juice to seep into your skin then wash off with fresh water. It also helps in soothing and softening your skin.
Tomato- An antioxidant power blast
Tomatoes are great anti-oxidants. For wrinkle-free skin, mash two large tomatoes and apply it evenly on your face. Rinse off after 20 minutes with cold water. To make a paste, use one day old curd and mix with a tomato pulp. Apply this face pack daily in the morning to reveal a brighter and sparkling fresh complexion for beautiful face.
Use cucumber and lemon for removing blemishes
To naturally remove blackheads and have a fairer skin, prepare a paste with equal amounts of cucumber juice and lemon juice. Apply this paste on your face and neck before taking bath. Let your skin absorb it for at least ten minutes. With regular use you will notice lesser blackheads and a fairer skin tone.
