Good things happen over time and so it is with our beauty regimes as well. A thorough and consistent care of our skin can leave it with a radiating glow. The festive season is around the corner and one thing we all worry about is how to look ravishing in our new clothes at the biggest celebration of the Year. But every good thing comes with a price. Constant visits to the parlor can result in a big hole in the pocket. Why not throw a glance at the kitchen and revisit some of the best secrets by grandma to solve the parlor crisis.
Go natural this festive season and try out some of these DIY face packs to get that perfect radiance and begin your New Year with freshness.
The Grandma's Oldest Trick
This face pack is being used since time immemorial. You just need some gram flour, milk and a pinch of turmeric and voila! You have the secret to a glowing skin. Ten minutes of skin care is all that you need.
The Sugary Secret
Never imagined that the sugar lying in your kitchen can actually save some extra bucks? Here, you just need sugar, warm water and a little bit of skin massage. Sugar not only exfoliates your skin but also rejuvenates and moisturizes it.
When Life gives you Lemons, Make a Face Pack out of it
We all know lemons are natural bleaching agents and therefore they work as the best exfoliating scrub thus cleansing your skin of all impurities, dead cells and get rid of the sun tan. If you have oily skin, add potato juice or pulp to your lemon face pack. Potato is the beloved guest we all love as it finds it way in most of the dishes. But it doesn’t stop there and takes a step ahead to help nourish your skin by making your skin tone lighter and removing blemishes.
The Magic of Fruits
The one fruit we are going to talk about here is papaya though you can also replace it with strawberry or banana. Papaya, a natural source of the enzyme papain, helps in skin renewal, is an essential part of all skin care regimes. When you mix one tablespoon honey with papaya, the resulting mixture will not only help in removing blemishes, sun tan and dark spots but also moisturize and make your overall skin healthier and immune to aging symptoms.
What more can you expect from a humble fruit like papaya?
The best thing about using butter in a face pack is that it won’t add any calories to your body. Containing high amounts of Vitamin A, a butter mask on your skin will leave it hydrated, while also making it glow.
The Power of Nature/ Wonders of the Earth
Multani mitti aka Fuller’s Earth is a very popular ingredient used in many face packs by even professional beauticians. A mixture of multani mitti with milk and oil will go a long way in clearing acne and blemishes due to the high concentration of magnesium chloride in it. This is one of the most convenient and easiest face packs to use.
PS: Do not forget to apply moisturizer on your skin every time you wash your face after applying any of these DIY face packs.
