Glowing skin is a reflection of the inner healthiness and perfect body metabolism, and it largely depends on the kind of lifestyle that an individual leads. The meals, exercising and work out habits can have direct effects on the skin. There are a few natural skin care regimes involving home remedies that can help greatly with blackheads, dark circles, pigmentation and all that is there on your face.

Here are 3 ingredients that you can easily find at home for glowing skin:

Papaya

Papaya not only cleanses the skin but it is also known for glowing the skin as it contains papain which promotes cell turnover and skin renewal. It benefits the skin by exfoliating it to reveal new skin cells and at the same time, soften it.

Here’s one method to moisturize the skin with papaya:

Take a ripe papaya, clean it and blend until smooth. Apply the paste and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash with cold water.

Milk-Banana Face Pack

Milk has the ability to renew skin cells, and cleanse and exfoliates the skin. Dry skin problems can be cured by making a mixture of milk, honey and mashed banana.

For instant glowing skin, try this:

Grind almonds with milk and add few drops of olive oil to make a semi-smooth paste.

Next, add grind orange peel and apply it on the face and neck. Leave the paste for 15-20 minutes and wash it with cold water. Rub an ice cube for 2-3 minutes and then pat dry. This helps to cleanse and exfoliates the skin.

Cabbage

Cabbage plant extract gives healthy shine and freshness to the skin. It is also effective in treating puffiness in the eyes.

For instant glow:

Boil some cabbage in water. Wash face with the water after cooling.

Facelifts and other wrinkle-reducing procedures have long been sought by people wanting to ward off the signs of aging, but new research suggests that it takes more than tightening loose skin to restore a youthful look. A new study indicates that significant changes in facial bones — particularly the jaw bone — occur as people age and contribute to an aging appearance.

This loss of bony volume may contribute sagging facial skin, decreased chin projection, and loss of jaw-line definition. As jaw volume decreases, soft tissue of the lower face has less support, resulting in a softer, oval appearance to the lower face and sagging skin, which also affects the aging appearance of the neck.

This may well give us another good reason to drink more milk and increase our calcium intake. 🙂
