Remedies for Dull and Dry Skin

Milk plus honey is magical

Turmeric can do wonders

Turmeric consists of natural anti-oxidant, antiseptic and skin brightening properties. Applying a paste of turmeric will help remove tan and treat blemishes. Lemon is high in Vitamin C and antioxidants, making it another excellent skin brightener. A paste made with curd as base and mixed with turmeric and lemon is excellent for removing tanning. 

Aloe-Vera Gel Mask

Dubbed as the ‘plant of immortality’ by the ancient Egyptians, aloe vera has proven to improve dryness. Use a fresh leaf and dig out the clear gel from inside. Rinse out this gel and then apply onto cleansed skin for 5 – 10 minutes.

Skin Care for Acne-prone Skin

Tomato scrub

Grab an old t-shirt and start with a ten-minute steam facial to open up the pores. Dip half a tomato into sugar and use this as a natural scrub. Tomatoes are loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C. This soothes inflammations and rids your skin of dead cells when applied topically.Tomatoes help in shrinking pores. Mix tomato juice with a few drops of lemon and apply on your face. Rinse with lukewarm water. Regular use of this will give you the best results. Tomatoes also help in reducing blackheads. Massage your blackhead prone area with tomato slices to deal with blackheads. 

Yoghurt mask

Create a mixture with 2 tbsp yoghurt, 1/2 tsp turmeric and 1 tsp fullers earth (optional) for a cleansing face mask. Yoghurt has healing properties, and it also moisturises your skin, clears blemishes and fights acne. Turmeric is your skin’s best friend and has been used since ancient times for lustrous and problem-free skin.

Combine honey and cinnamon

People suffering from acne should use a homemade mask made with honey and cinnamon. This mask helps in reducing active acne. Apply fresh Aloe Vera pulp as it is a great moisturiser for acne prone dry skin.

Banana contains potassium which moisturises and gives you wrinkle-free skin while destroying bacteria. It’s a natural exfoliant that removes sebum and dead skin. Honey soothes the skin, delays ageing and is an excellent skin conditioner.

Cucumber mask

It will have your skin feeling less irritated and give you crystal clear skin. The Vitamin C and B complex neutralises the skin while removing tan and soothing sunburns.

Rose water is the basic

Rose essential oil or rose water is one of the best toners out there, which is suitable for all skin types. Store it in a spray bottle and use it twice a day. It would help to soothe and calm the skin, balance ph levels, and help repair the skin’s elasticity.
