We all aspire for that neat, flawlessly fair complexion that would give us a confidence in ourselves. And in a desperate wish to get that fair skin, we tend to try chemical-based products which prove disastrous in a long-run. Though these chemicals do give an instant glow, they also speed up the aging process for our skin, causing it to sag, develop wrinkles, or even turn it into a very strange complexion.
There are better alternatives, available right there at your home. For instance, honey is a natural substance that gives fairness and glow to the skin. These are some of the DIY honey packs that help in achieving a fairer skin.
These mixtures and concoctions will give your skin, a natural fairness and glow:
Combination of milk and honey is the best for skin during winter season. This helps in keeping the water-deprived skin healthy and glowing. Take 1 tablespoon each of raw milk and honey, mix well, and rub it on your skin in circular motion. Wash it away in 15-20 minutes. This process can be followed daily to get the best results.
Papaya and honey go very well together when it comes to a blemish-free skin. It's a miracle pack, trust us. All you need to do is, mix half a cup of papaya juice with 1 spoon full of honey, and apply this on your face for 20 minutes. Wash it off with water. This mixture is extremely rich in vitamins A, C and E, which act as natural anti-tanning agents, protecting skin from tanning, freckles and dullness.
This camaraderie is good to make both, a pack as well as a scrub. Apply the mixture on your face and let it dry. Once it gets completely dried and crisp, dampen it again, and rub your fingers in circular motion. Be gentle in this act and make sure the harshness doesn't harm the skin.
Tomato has bleaching properties, which get enhanced when it comes in contact with honey. Make a thick paste of besan by mixing 2-3 tbsp of it with 1½ tablespoon honey, 1/3 cup sour curd and 1 tomato pulp. Apply this pack on the face and wash it off after 20 minutes to get a clean and smooth skin.
