So after doing research I realized something, the best and proven way to get glowing skin is by using turmeric. In Indian culture, a bride makes this tumeric mask so that she glows on her wedding day. And it really DOES work.. So here goes the recipe below with a few other options that you can use if you aren’t gutsy enough for turmeric.😉
Take turmeric powder and mix lemon juice in it. Make a paste and apply it on your skin. Do not take too much turmeric or else you will end up with a yellow face instead of glowing skin. Let the mask dry, and then, wash off thoroughly with cold water.
Or.. You could do it the proper Indian way –
For this beauty mask, combine 2 teaspoons sandalwood powder, 2 teaspoons turmeric powder, ½ cup chickpea flour with a little almond oil. To this add water and make a paste.
Did you know turmeric also helps with cuts and bruises? If you get cut whilst busy in the kitchen, add a tsp of turmeric to the affected area and use a Elastoplast over it. Within a few minutes it will stop the bleeding. It works great with kids injuries as well, as it has anti inflammatory properties. It’s a number 1 spice in my household.
Other face masks for glowing skin are-
Eggs & Honey
Take the egg and separate egg whites as you are going to need the white part only. Now, add 1 tablespoon of honey and mix it well. Apply it on your face and leave it for 15 minutes. Honey will brighten up your skin while egg whites will tighten your skin. Wash off after 15 minutes. You will notice the difference. ☺️
Lemon & Sugar Scrub
Take 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and mix them. Apply it on your face and massage. You can also use this scrub on your elbows and knees. Keep it for 10 minutes. Subsequently, rinse thoroughly with warm water. This will help in removing tan and dead skin.
Coconut provides plenty of benefits to the skin. Apply some amount of coconut oil on your skin. This will remove the tan and moisten your skin. Apply it on the daily basis.
NB❗️ before applying any of these masks to your face, first test on th inner part of your arm, if you start feeling a weird sensation, it’s best that you don’t apply it to your face.
