You can now try these easy tips at the comfort of your own home and enjoy a healthy, long-lasting glow on your skin.
Step 1: Cleanse
If you are someone who doesn’t want to go through tons of procedures and all the trouble but long for that healthy glowing skin then chose products that will give you the best results without having to make much effort. To begin your cleanse take a cotton pad soak it with your favorite makeup remover and wipe off all the makeup, dirt, or sweat from your face; this will wipe off all the impurities within the clogged pores of your skin, preventing forming any blackheads, acne or rashes.
Next, use a foaming or creamy cleanser that cleanses your face while hydrating your skin. Wet your face with water pour the cleanser on your palms and foam the cleanser. Distribute it evenly on your face using your fingertips with gentle circular motions and wash it off with Luke warm water.
Step 2: Steam
Heat or steam is known to be excellent for the skin as it helps open up the pores that make the whole cleansing process much more effective. You can either get a store-bought face steamer or just boil water in any utensil. Wait for the water to heat and then cover your head with the towel, so heat does not escape your face, place your face close enough to the steam so it can reach all parts of your face, but also be careful, so it doesn’t burn your face. Continue this for ten to fifteen minutes as this steam will help clean the pores from deep within. After steam takes a blackhead removing tool and scrapes off all the blackheads and whiteheads from your nose, forehead, chin, or wherever you might see them on your face. Make sure to use the tool immediately, or the pores will tighten if left to cool down. Now your look is squeaky clean and ready for next step.
Step 3: Exfoliation
The next step is exfoliation or scrubbing, which is a crucial step in keeping your skin healthy and bright. We recommend mixing half a cup of milk and 3 tablespoons of oatmeal and make a smooth paste, Apart from being excellent cleanser milk can also be great to exfoliation when mixed with oats, and it hydrates, soothes and lightens the skin at the same time. Lactic acid present in the milk removes dead skin cells, reduces wrinkles and also boosts collagen while oats have anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that heal moisturize and soothe the skin. Apply this paste evenly on all your face and massage in circular motions after fifteen minutes, rinse it off with Luke warm water.
Step 4: Mask
A simple homemade mask can transform your skin; after all, that’s what dreams are made of. Take 2 tablespoons of gram flour, a pinch of turmeric powder and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix the ingredients to form a paste and apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off. This will brighten up your skin as turmeric is perfect ingredient with this combination as it has anti-microbial and soothing properties that help remove blemishes, dark spots, and uneven skin tone, giving you younger-looking glowy skin.
Another mask that you can use is of honey and milk. Use honey on your skin as a mask as it has hydrating properties that also tighten up your skin and when mixed with milk it effectively moisturizes the skin all day long, making it feel fresh, alive, and healthy.
