So here some tips to make face packs at home. You will also find a diet to get fair skin naturally and other basic habits that are often ignored. So why wait!

Simple Daily Skin Care Necessities:

Your skin needs time and care for rejuvenation and regeneration. Without basic care, improving your skin condition and tone would be a difficult task. This is why you need to follow these skincare basics to ensure a youthful, glowing skin.

a. Drink lots of water:

Make it a habit to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water every single day.This is not just a common advice, water is essential for proper functioning of the body. There is fluid loss from the body due to evaporation and sweating and also via urination. This loss needs to be compensated by drinking plenty of water and juices but not soft drinks.

When water intake is not equal to water output then dehydration takes place.Generally fluid loss takes place in warmer climates, among those who does grueling exercise routines at high altitudes and in older people who don’t tend to feel thirsty.

The body is composed of 60% water which is required for various body functions like digestion, respiration, absorption, circulation, transportation of nutrients and maintenance of normal body temperature. When you are low on water the brain triggers the body’s thirst mechanism. Water is a non-calorie beverage and it is the safest way to lose weight.

Water energizes you and relieves you from fatigue. When you are dehydrated and tired your face looks really dull. The skin mirrors your health, so you should treat water like a nutrient and drink it.Water keeps your skin hydrated but it doesn’t remove wrinkles. Since water improves digestion it makesyour face fresh and free of acne.

b. Sleep well:

If you don’t sleep it shows on your face. You look irritated and tired. The solution is don’t skip your beauty sleep and do not stay awake till late hours in the night. Lack of sleep cause the blood vessels to dilate and this result in dark circles.

The skin undergoes repairing, restoration and rebalancing while you are sleeping. The dead skin cells give away to newer cells and the face gets an instant lift. All the hormonal and metabolic changes occur in the body while you are sleeping. So lack of sleep disrupts the body processes. Seven to eight hours of sleep is absolutely needed if you want a healthy skin. However, don’t oversleep it can cause cell breakdown, maintain a balance.

Fix your sleeping and waking time. Sleep on a soft pillow and also make sure the pillow cover is also soft.

c. Exercise:

You must exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. If you have skin problem like acne, psoriasis and rosacea take ample precautions before exercising, but don’t let skin problems hinder your active life. Dermatologists say that exercise helps to increase blood circulation that itself boosts skin health.

When you do any physical activity the blood carries oxygen and nutrients to all the cells, including your skin cells and makes it healthy. Exercise also helps to remove cellular debris and free radicals from the body and cleanse it from within. Sometimes, stress causes the sebaceous glands to secrete more sebum and this triggers skin problems like eczema and acne. Exercise helps to de-stress and this keeps skin problems at bay. Most important, exercise tones your body and makes you look beautiful.

d. Exfoliate:

Follow a good skin care routine. Do not skip exfoliation as without this, you cannot get rid of dead and dry skin that accumulates and makes your complexion appear dull. You needn’t always buy a scrub. Homemade scrubs are just as effective! Use oatmeal as an exfoliator instead of a packaged product. There are many natural options available.

e. Remove make up before sleep:

It is important to let your skin breathe.Remove your makeup before you sleep every night. Yes, follow this step every night without fail no matter how tired you are! With makeup, your skin cannot repair by itself.

Using oil to remove makeup is perhaps the best way than using harsh chemicals. Those with oily skin feel that excess oil can cause more harm, well it is not so, oil helps to dissolve dirt and sebum without stripping the face of the natural oils. Those with oily skin can also use astringent like neem based cleanser.

Make sure the cleanser is water based. But virgin olive oil is the best, it remove all eye and face make up in one step. You can also use castor oil, its anti-bacterial and great your skin. You can also blend castor oil with almond oil, avocado oil and jojoba oil to remove wrinkles and give your skin the natural glow.

  • Blend half cup of virgin olive oil and castor oil.
  • Apply it on your face and gently massage. Use the oil to remove all the eye makeup gently.
  • Now dip the washcloth in warm water and wring out the excess moisture.
  • Place it on your face and keep it for a minute and then wipe out the excess oil.
  • This simple oil cleansing routine will remove all impurities.

f. Have vitamin rich food:

Incorporate Vitamin A and Vitamin C rich foods in your diet. This will bring a natural glow to your skin. Vitamin C tablets are also available. You can have one tablet every day post lunch for a clear skin tone.

14. Sun protection and care:

With all these attended to; there is still one thing you need to keep firmly in mind! Do not step out into the sun without protection! Are you wondering why? How can forgetting to apply sunscreen lotion cause so much damage? Don’t ever question the effects of the harsh sun rays and the UV radiation that your skin is exposed to when you step out of your home! That is why you need to use a sunscreen!

  • Always apply a sunscreen before stepping out into the sun.
  • An SPF of at least 30 or more depending on your skin type is necessary.
  • UV rays darken and damage your skin! So, make sure you reapply your sunscreen every four or five hours.

These are of course not fail-proof! But if you have already spent too much time in the sun, you first need to lose the tan and burns. Try these remedial measures to address the issues.

15. Homemade tan removal:

Tans are inevitable! No matter how much sunscreen we lather on, the brutal sun always finds a way to harm us! There are several ways to remove tan right at your home. Here is an excellent article to remove tan at home.

But here we shall enlighten you on one of the most famous tan removal packs ever!

Ubtan:

This traditional, age-old treatment includes the use of a mixture of besan (gram flour), turmeric and yogurt. Turmeric removes the blemishes and dark spots. Yogurt clears the excessive tan. And, besan cleanses your skin effectively. It suits all skin types and can be done every day as it is very gentle. The effects are visible quite immediately but tan removal needs a couple of days or weeks, depending on the intensity of the tan.

16. Homemade sun burn cure:

Well, sun burns are but natural once you hit a beach for your vacation. But that doesn’t mean you need to go back to work looking toasted.

Here is one solution you will definitely love!

Vinegar:

Vinegar has antioxidants which fight free radicals and also keep bacterial and fungal infections away. More than these reasons, however, the pH level of your skin is restored effectively with the use of vinegar.

  • Take a clean spray bottle and fill it with some vinegar.
  • Spray it directly on the affected areas and allow it to dry.
  • Normally vinegar dries within 2 to 3 minutes, and you can instantly feel the cooling, relaxing sensation on your skin.
  • You can follow the same procedure once in every 5 hours to prevent the burning sensation and to cure your sun burn faster.

So here are the easy to make homemade face packs you can use anytime. Wash your face thoroughly before applying the face packs. Wear a hairband and plain clothes that you won’t feel sorry about if they get spoilt. Use a brush to apply the face pack evenly. While washing off the face mask use circular movements with your fingertips to get rid of excess dirt. You can use washcloth to wipe off your face. Don’t rub your face, pat it dry.

So why wait, try all these homemade masks. Always keep it stylish!

Our lives are full with juggling the responsibilities of our households and careers, while taking care of friends and family. At the end of the day, we look in the mirror and think “I look terrible!”Reducing stress and getting a good night’s sleep is my #1 Beauty tip above and beyond makeup. My second suggestion is to take good care of your skin. If you follow tips 1 & 2 you definitely won’t need much makeup.

To help you get a good night’s sleep I’ve created a recipe below to create an at home spa experience- which includes some home-made beauty products to hydrate and soften your skin.

Recipe to create your Zen At Home Spa Experience:

Ingredients:

  • Soft towels
  • Bath tub
  • Candles
  • Soft music
  • Book (optional)
  • Green Juice (see recipe below)

  • Moisturizing Face Mask (see recipe below)

Recipe for Green Juice:

1/2 cup Spinach, 1/2 cucumber peeled and seeded, 1 carrot peeled with stem cut off, 1 apple cored with one cup of water or more for desired consistency.

Spinach: Has Vitamin K, A, E, C, and B which is highly nutritious and contains lots of free-radical fighting antioxidants.

Carrots: Bugs Bunny simply love carrots! It contains high level of antioxidants, which prevent damage from free radicals. Carrots are good source of vitamin A, which helps in the development and maintenance of skin cells.

Apples: An apple a day keeps doctor away! You must have grown up with this axiom. Do you want to know the reason? Apples contain antioxidants, which help to minimize cell and tissue damage, prevent wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

Cucumber: Use these in your skin-boosting juice of cucumber for its anti-inflammatory properties and which also help to keep the skin hydrated.

Homemade Sugar Body Scrub: Mix 1 cup olive oil with 2 cups of raw sugar and add essential oil if desired.

Moisturizing Body Bar or Wash

Directions:

  1. Draw a lukewarm bath (not too hot, as hot water robs our skin of moisture).
  2. Light candles, start music and grab your book
  3. Apply face mask to face and neck avoiding eye and lip area.
  4. Use Sugar Body Scrub to gently exfoliate body- (avoid face and neck). Follow with gentle body wash if needed. (I like to mix body wash with a little sugar scrub mixture and gently massage into skin).
  5. Once you have rinsed off the body scrub and washed off the face mask, gently pat your skin with a towel to dry.
  6. You can dab some olive oil on your skin to keep it hydrated.
  7. Lie back and sip green juice, listen to music or read, and relax.
  8. Enjoy a peaceful sleep. (don’t forget to blow out the candles!)

Once you have rinsed off the body scrub and washed off the face mask, gently pat your skin with a towel to dry.

2. Cold cucumber slices are perfect to relieve puffy eyes.  Cold caffeinated tea bags work too.

3. To dry up a pimple use tea tree oil on the blemish.

4. Paige Padgett:

1. Before I go out in the evening I rub ice cubes over my face to get a natural gorgeous glow. I swear it brightens and takes a few years off my face. I use this trick on clients that are looking a bit sallow too.Paige Padgett

2. Nearly everyone has slightly asymmetrical eyes. When you are tired it shows in your eyes. When I have a client who looks tired or one eye looks smaller than the other (sometimes referred to as a lazy eye). I massage the brow bone and pinch their eyebrows between my thumb and index finger to give their eye an instant lift. Repeat this process if necessary. For example, if my right eye is a bit smaller than the left, I give it a quick lift before I take a selfie.

3. Glycerine and rosewater make a lovely makeup setting spray. Add 1/10 part glycerine to rose water in a misting bottle (not a spray bottle) shake well and mist your makeup holding the bottle about a foot away from your face. Your makeup will look more natural and last longer.

4. To enhance my natural waves and add volume to my hair, I combine two tablespoons of sugar to 2 cups of hot or boiling water. After it’s cooled add 1-2 drops of coconut oil. Apply to wet hair at roots for lift or all over your hair for waves. Coconut milk sprayed onto wet hair will also help to add volume.

5. Christabel Draffin:

1. Choose makeup and skincare products that are as natural as possible to reduce chemical exposure. Natural lip balms and lipsticks are particularly good to use, since, you aren’t eating chemicals when you use them.

2. Coconut oil is a fantastic body moisturiser and can be used as a deep conditioning hair treatment. For men it’s the best natural substitute for shaving gel, once they try it, they’ll be hooked!

3. Natural beauty starts with good skin – so eating right, drinking lots of water and applying the right makeup is the best way to bring out your natural beauty. A good tinted moisturiser to even out skin, groomed brows, and curled lashes with a coat of black mascara and a rose coloured lip and cheek stain will instantly make you look healthy, glowing and awake.

6. Lina Hanson:Alexis

1. Use face oil instead of a moisturizer. Face oil absorbs into the skin faster, it is vitamin packed and lightweight and leaves your skin with a beautiful glow. It works great under makeup!

2. If your skin needs exfoliation, a quick and easy DIY recipe is mixing organic sugar, olive oil, lemon and some raw honey. Scrub your face gently and wash off. Your skin will feel refreshed and smooth in no time.

3. Switch for a powder blush to a crème blush, it is much smoother and blends into your skin better. It will give you a healthy and rosy natural glow.

Lina Hanson: www.linahanson.com


7. Alexis Wolfer:Alexis

1. Drink more water. Your skin is your body’s largest organ and the first place to show signs of dehydration. Not sipping enough H2O? You’re skin will look dull and drab, feel dry and be more prone to show the signs of aging and to breakout!

2. Invest in a jar of extra-virgin, cold-pressed, organic coconut oil. It removes the most stubborn of waterproof eye makeup, moisturizes hair and skin brilliantly, and simultaneously fights acne and wrinkles. It’s my #1 go-to beauty product not only because of it has many uses, but also because it really works. I use it in recipes in my beauty cookbook, “The Recipe for Radiance: Discover Beauty’s Best-Kept Secrets in Your Kitchen” than I can even count!

3. Give yourself an at-home facial. Start with a base of full-fat Greek yogurt (it’s rich in lactic acid to break down dead skin cells, probiotics to balance bacteria and fat to moisturize). Add raw honey to hydrate more deeply and for its antibacterial properties (which fight acne!) or red wine for its antioxidants. Apply a thin layer (avoiding the eyes) and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing off.

    One of my friend suggested that “use rice water for fair skin”. Here is the process she explained. Soak rice in water for 20 minutes then separate the water from the rice. Let the water settle down for 10 minutes so that all impurities will go down and settle at bottom. Clean your face gently with the rice water. Do this 6 to 7 times. This will give your a fairer skin. I just started doing it. You can have a try :)

    Hi, sadia my skin is dry and little fair anf few days back it turned to black so doctor asked me to use BAn A tan cream and Melacare cream so is it good to use that and suggest me dailly use day cream and face wash

    1. Arshi Ahmed

      hi. avoid using medicated creams as they just provide temporary fairness ans turn the skin black the moment you step out in the sun. apply natural products as much as you can and if you really want to try medicated creams then go for MelaGlow. this is the best of all and i can vouch for it. moreover it doesnt contain hydroquinine so you can safely apply it.

    Hi,

    I am an 22 female, I am so white still 16years. After that my face started becoming darker.

    now my face turned black and soooo uneven skintone(like dark circles,blackness on my upperlip). Now my face is black and my body color is white….suggest me plzzzz…Atleast tell me that my facial skintone will retain or not…I have severe dandruff & hairfall also….:( :( :(

    1. Arshi Ahmed

      apply aloe vera gel on your hair to treat dandruff. as for the uneven skin tone, soak a few strands of saffron, 5 to 6 in two teaspoon of milk . leave it for 3 to 4 hours and then apply it all over the face and wash off when it dries

    2. BADSHAH

      YOU ARE FACING WITH STOMACH DISEASE. USE PLENTY OF WATER BEFORE YOU WAKE UP AND AFTER YOU SLEEP. ALSO HAVE A MORNING WALK BEFORE THE SUNRISE ON THE GREEN GRASS EMPTY FOOT. USE PLENTY OF FRUITS N WASH YOUR FACE WITH DETOL SOAP AT LEAST 30 TIMES A DAY. THEN SEE A MAGIC ON YOUR FACE IN 2 WEEKS ONLY.

        James, I would like to thank you for your latest email with instructions, I really appreciated it. As I said before, my neck and underarms were always darker than the rest of my body. Probably I was born this way. I remember that ever since I was a kid, I hated showing my neck. Therefore I used to wear scarfs all the time, whenever possible – even at school whenever they let me. But now, after trying your solution my skin color has become significantly more even toned, my neck is turning whiter everyday, which is excellent! How can I ever tell you how indebted I am to you? Thank you so much!

    Hai Sadia……

    1. Monika

      Major varieties available in India are : Alleppey Finger – Kerala
      Erode and Salem turmeric – Tamil Nadu
      Rajapore and Sangli turmeric – Maharashtra
      Nizamabad Bulb – Andhra Pradesh

      Best solution is.. You can use dry turmeric root and then powdered it in mixing jar..Own home made turmeric ready with “Anusha” brand. :)
      Just my opinion.

    1. Arshi Ahmed

      apply olive oil or almond oil on the face every nght before sleeping and drink loads of water. you can even apply grated potato under eyes to treat dark circles

    hi
    i need your help. i m getting merry in 2 weeks and problem is my hands and feet skin is very tan and i am worried. moreover please help me how to remove my double chin. please please help.

    1. Arshi Ahmed

      hii there are some exercises which you need to perform to get rid of double chin. as for the tanned feet and hands, apply an ubtan by preparing a paste of fresh haldi and besan mixed with some milk. this will surely help. do not use powdered haldi. use haldi roots. and soak it overnight and then make a paste out of it.

  25. Raaina

  26. Terrie Dawson

    This sounds something interesting
    and different. I believe home remedies are the best way to keep your skin
    healthy and alive. Recently I switched up with dermology skin brightener which
    is really effective. The best part is that it has no side effect.

    How often a week shud i apply this facial mask? Can I wear daily ? And is it better to do it at night ot morning ? Thanks for the info !!

  30. Liya Jacob

    I would recommend Eye Rid Serum, that will tighten up your skin and give
    you a radiant glow. She has many Indian clients and have been using it
    for months! For maximum results, use her cleanser toner serum.
