Vitamins C and E are abundant in this fruit, which may be beneficial to your skin. Vitamin C, in particular, shields against UV damage and pollution by neutralizing free radicals (1). Soak 4 to 5 apricots in water and allow them to swell up. Make a pulp out of it and prepare a smooth mixture by blending the apricot pulp with 2 tsp honey, 1/2 tsp almond oil, and ½ tsp lemon Juice. Apply in generous amounts on the face and allow to dry, say for about 20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water to reveal shining skin.

2. The Papaya Magic

Mash 2 tsp of papaya pulp with 2 tsp of honey and apply it to your skin in circular motions. Rest for 15 minutes and wash your face with water. Papaya may act as a natural scrub for the skin care and nourish skin.

3. Citrusy Touch with Orange Peels

Grate orange peel and dry it in the sun. Prepare a mixture by adding 1 tsp dried citrus peel with 2 tsp gram flour and 1 tsp milk. Apply the pack on your face and rinse off after 15 minutes. The citric acid and vitamin C has been shown to help with collagen formation, which keeps your skin tight and decreases the appearance of photoaging, and hyperpigmentation (2).

4. Fruity Watermelon and Cucumber Pack

The juicy red fruit has much more benefits than aiding weight loss. The presence of lycopene in admirable quantities helps this fruit fight off the signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines (3). Prepare a face pack by mixing grated cucumber, grated watermelon, and a few drops of lemon juice. Apply it to your face and wash it off with lukewarm water for oil-free, beautiful skin.

5. The Banana Mash

Bid adieu to your blemishes with bananas. This yellow-skinned fruit is packed with antioxidants and helps eliminate free radicals from your body (4). Mash a medium-sized banana; add about 2 tsp honey and a few drops of olive oil to the mashed fruit to prepare a face pack. Wash off after 20 minutes to show off more supple and visibly smooth and radiant skin.

6. Antioxidant Dose with Tomatoes

Give your skin a commendable dose of antioxidants by using tomatoes – internally and externally. Mix 3 tbsp of tomato juice with 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Add 2 tbsp of milk cream. Make a smooth paste. Apply in circular motion to the skin; keep for 15 minutes and wash. Tomatoes contain Lycopene that rejuvenates and tightens the skin. They also have astringent properties that leave your skin fresh.

7. Exfoliating With Oatmeal

According to a study, oatmeal is rich with anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve skin dryness, scaling, and roughness. It also may reduce itchiness (5). Prepare a paste by blending 1 tbsp oatmeal with a little water. Dash in 1 tsp honey, apply on your face, and rinse off in 20 minutes. The saponins, present in oatmeal, cleanse your skin, giving it a fresh lease of life. Yet another best way to rejuvenate skin!

8. Hydrating Yogurt

Homemade yogurt can do wonders for your skin. The lactic acid present in itworks like an exfoliator and skin brightener. According to a study, yogurt packs can help improve moisture, brightness, and skin elasticity (6). Prepare a smooth face pack by mixing in 2 tsp yogurt, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, and ½ tsp gram flour. Cleanse your face, apply this pack, and wash after 15 minutes with tap water. This face pack naturally cleanses the skin and tightens it so that it looks young and fresh.

9. Moisturizing Milk Powder

Yes, your instant dairy whitener can be used to nourish your skin (7). Prepare a smooth paste by mixing 1 tsp milk powder, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp lemon juice, and ½ tsp almond oil. Allow the mixture to remain for 15 minutes on your face before washing off with tap water. While the whitener cleanses your skin, lemon lightens it, and almond oil and honey hydrate the skin. In short, this is a must try home remedy for instant skin rejuvenation.

10. The Eggy Relation

Eggs – yes – use them to add a protein touch to your skin. Prepare a fine paste by blending one egg white with 2 tsp multani mitti. Apply, using a brush, in upwards movement on your face and allow it to dry thoroughly. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and follow up with a moisturizer. Eggs may reduce wrinkles and protect the skin from free radical damage (8).

What More Can You Do For Skin Rejuvenation At Home?

Keep Track Of Your Diet

Choose a balanced diet packed with vegetables and fruits. Opt for a citrus boost as your snack with an orange. Include Omega 3 fatty acid rich ingredients along with sufficient protein sources for replenishing your skin from within. Chuck out your burgers, deep fried delicacies, sugar rich munches, and aerated drinks.

Sleep Your Way

8 hours – that is what the textbook says; if not the recommended, try to grab at least 5 to 6 hours of deep sleep. A 10-minute power nap should also be included for a refreshing skin.

Did You Know?
Lack of sleep lowers skin hydration and causes dryness. It also aggravates wrinkles (9).

Workout Regularly

Exercises are inevitable ingredients for rejuvenated skin. Along with your cardio and weight training, do a little yoga. The better your circulation levels are, the better your skin will be.

Drink Water

8 glasses – 1.6 liters – of water is a must, if you want a soft, supple, rejuvenated skin! So, do not skip water!
