Glowing, pink cheeks can outdo any blush on or make-up. The natural radiance on the cheeks makes the skin look so much healthier. You can ditch your usual blush and go the natural way with some home-made packs:
Beetroot is perfect to give a pink effect onto the skin. Boil 2-3 beetroots and mash them. To this, add 3 teaspoons of kaolin powder (it is easily available at your local chemist shop) and apply this mix on your face and neck. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then wash it off.
Masoor dal and milk
Soak up some masoor daal in milk (without boiling it) for 30 minutes. Grind the mix into a smooth paste. Add some kaolin powder to this. Dab this on your face and leave it for 20 minutes.
Gram flour, milk cream, wheat bran and curd
To get a soft blush–like effect, apply 2-3 teaspoons of gram flour with one spoon of milk cream, 3 teaspoons of each wheat bran and curd. Slather this face pack on your skin for 15 minutes. Wash off after 15 minutes.
Exfoliating the skin is essential to release it from the dead skin cells that turn your skin dull. Apply the pulp of cucumber on your face as it is an excellent skin lightening agent. It helps to fade dark circles and exfoliates it at the same time.
Cucumber, lemon, milk and honey paste
You can make a face pack at home mixing some grated cucumber, lemon juice (1/4th cup), 5 teaspoons of honey and milk, each. To this, add flour to get a thick paste like consistency. Refrigerate this mixture for 5-6 hours. Then, apply this cool mask on your face for 15-20 minutes to get the pink glow.
Lemon and milk massage
Massaging your skin plays a vital role to help keep it youthful and healthy. For this, mix 1/4th cup of lemon juice with milk. Massage the lemon and milk on your face to facilitate blood circulation.
For a healthy glow, mositurising your skin is as important. Grind few almonds and apply with crushed rose petals, 5 teaspoons of each mint juice and honey. This mix will look like a cream that can be refrigerated for 5-6 days. This face mask will start showing results in 1 week. This face mask is to be applied at bed time.
Ensure the face packs are applied regularly to see results. It’s best to keep it simple and natural and still look absolutely radiant.
