Every lady wants a glowing skin – even those that do not give much thought to their skincare.
Most times when we talk about glowing skin, people think it means a skin that is free from blemishes.
But it is way more than that.
Have you ever seen a glowing skin?
Imagine a woman walking into the room and after her dress, the next thing you notice is her skin.
No blemish of any sort, well-toned and taken care of so well, that the light bounces of her skin and keeps you glaring.
That’s the kind of skin I am talking about.
And the truth is, no matter how bad your skin is currently, you too can get to that point.
Lately, I have focused on preaching the gospel of skincare routines, because the first step to getting there is to strictly follow a skincare routine.
And when I say, “strictly follow”, I mean do it like your life depends on it.
And then, there is the part of eating wholesome meals, staying hydrated, and exercising. They all come together to make your skin look stunningly beautiful.
Skincare rules are the benchmark of a healthy skin. But that is not what we will be discussing today.
We will examine the different ways that you can make your skin glow by using the things we can easily find at home – especially in your kitchen.
Without any further delay, let’s get started.
Here are some home remedies that make your skin glow:
This is a plant that works extremely well for the skin.
It has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It nourishes and rejuvenates your skin to give it a natural glow.
It also has healing properties.
Basically, it houses a lot of goodness for your skin.
All you need to do is get a stalk of the aloe vera plant, scrape off the gel, and apply on your skin. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then, wash off with lukewarm water.
Do this everyday, just before you go to bed.
Lemon is great for removing spots from your body. It is used in preventing hyperpigmentation.
Lemon has natural brightening agents and can be quite acidic. So, it is advised that you use it alongside honey.
If you can get two teaspoons of lemon and two teaspoons of honey. Mix together and apply on your skin.
Honey contains antimicrobial properties and is rich in antioxidants.
It does not only remove blemishes; it keeps your skin soft and healthy. When applied regularly, it prevents pimples from appearing on your skin and evens out your skin tone.
Ultimately, it gives you a spotless complexion.
When combined with lemon or lime, it can be used to fade scars or dark spots.
Apply honey on your skin and massage it in for a few minutes. Leave it for another 10 to 15 minutes and then, wash off with lukewarm water.
Do this every night before bed.
You can also use honey to exfoliate. Mix two teaspoons of honey and two teaspoons of sugar. Apply on your skin. Leave to sit for 10 minutes and wash off. Do this twice in a week.
The sugar granules help to scrub off dead skin cells from your skin’s surface.
This is a wonderful natural moisturizer that also helps to glow up your skin.
Also, it repairs damaged skin cells and aids the growth of new and healthy skin cells.
All you need to do is apply a few drops on your skin and massage it in for a few minutes. You can leave it overnight and then, wash off the next morning.
The good thing about cucumber is that it helps your body in two ways – when you eat and when you apply on your skin.
It contains antioxidants that replenishes nutrients in your skin and rejuvenates dull skin. It also has soothing properties and can be used to reduce swelling.
Cucumber improves your skin complexion and strengthens your skin’s protective barrier against damage of any kind.
All you need to do is, grate your cucumber and apply the paste on your skin. Leave for 10 minutes and then wash off.
Do this thrice in a week.
Papaya (what we commonly know as pawpaw) is also another fruit than you can infuse into both your food diet and your beauty routine.
It contains an enzyme called papain, which possesses skin lightening qualities and helps to remove scars, marks, spots, and also helps to reduce the visibility of blemishes.
It contains Vitamin A, which helps to nourish and rejuvenate your skin.
It can also be used as a mild exfoliator, to remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface.
To use, grate your pawpaw and apply the paste on your skin. Massage it in for a few minutes and let it sit for another five minutes.
After that, wash off with lukewarm water.
Do this thrice a week.
Cod liver oil
This is also a great moisturizer for glowing skin.
Cod liver oil is rich in Vitamins A and D, and omega-3 fatty acids. It helps to not only nourish your skin, but also repair damaged skin cells, and leave your skin radiantly glowing.
All you need is two cod liver oil capsules. Prick them open to extract the oil. Apply on your face and neck.
Massage it in for a minute and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Do this everyday.
Glowing skin is not a façade, and you definitely can make your skin glow.
Stick to your skincare routine and try out a few of these home remedies.
The key is consistency. You cannot do this for a little while and expect magic to happen. It might take a while, but your skin will definitely take up a new and vibrant glow.
