I am not too fond of summers. The heat and perspiration give me acne breakouts that are painful and often leave behind ugly blemishes. Now, I use Cetaphil face wash religiously. It has worked wonders for my skin. But, when it comes to using face packs and face masks, I like to whip them up in my kitchen with natural ingredients.
I have always been overprotective about my lips during winters. My lips have a tendency to get overtly chapped, which leads to frequent bleeding and pain. I have been using Vaseline to guard my lips since school days; however, in the last few years, I have used Nivea chap sticks and Maybelline lip balms – these are good products, but are not natural. Once I stopped using these, my lips got drier, which made me apply in double proportions. Not a great thing, eh?
We all know, sugar is bad for health; but, it is a magical ingredient for buttery soft skin. Did you know that? I often make this simple homemade sugar scrub for exfoliation. It’s easy to make, simple to store, supremely effective and can be used as both facial and body scrub.
I love trying out varied homemade face masks; especially because they are such a healthy alternative to chemical-induced cosmetic products. Plus, they are super effective and easy to make. Here are a few simple homemade face packs that I have tried over the years for instantly glowing skin.
