A glowing and flawless skin is every ladies dream. When age starts affecting the skin, we only resort to cosmetics as the only workable solution. But is this really the best treatment for your skin? Another important fact to comprehend is that anti-aging should be a complete skin treatment. You should start taking care of your skin, by the time you are turning 30. A natural skin treatment is both safe, and easy to adapt to. These cause no-harm to your skin, and help you retain smoothness and natural glow for life. Still worried about early aging signs? Well, the good news is that there are ways to delay the signs of ageing. So how about we say goodbye to the skin-ageing nightmares and say hello to a fresh, glowing and impeccable looking skin with these simple, DIY faces packs, scrubs and cleansers? They almost do not cost a dime and have absolutely no side effects, either!

Here Are Some Easy-To-Do Home-Based Skin Recipes

  • Lemon Juice works as a Natural Bleach for our skin and cures all kinds of tans and sunburns. Lemon is a great source of Vitamin C and is rich on antioxidants. All you need to do is apply some on our face using a soft cotton ball, let it stay for about 15-20 minutes and wash it off afterwards. Do this on a regular basis and you will soon realize that those lemons were indeed worth a Squeeze.

  • Take some Raw Potato slices and rub them directly on your skin. This goes a long way in making the Fine Lines, Wrinkles, Blemishes and Dark Pigments almost disappear from your face. We can also place them on our eyes for about 8-20 minutes, in order to remove Dark Circles.

  • Take some grounded Fenugreek Seeds, add some Honey to it and form a nice, thick paste. Apply it on your face and neck and let it stay for about 20-60 minutes and afterwards, wash it off with water. Fenugreek is rich in Vitamin B3, and is known for its medicinal properties that help lighten the Dark Spots, and look after the overall health of our skin. The addition of honey to this further helps soothe our skin.

  • Take some Papaya, mash it and form a paste. Apply it directly on the face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with some warm water. This fruit is loaded with Vitamin A and antioxidants, and a special enzyme called Papain found in this fruit goes a long way in ridding our skin of dead cells, thus paving way for a much healthier skin.

  • Rose Water has long been known to be a natural face cleanser. All we need is about 2 teaspoons of rose water, a few drops of Glycerine, and about a half teaspoon Lemon Juice. Mix them well, and apply them on your face each night before going to bed. Keep it on for the night, and wash your face with cold water next morning. It amazingly calms our skin from the inside and allows it to breathe. Rose water also increases the Blood Circulation and makes the skin look more fresh and healthy.
