- Skin brightening recipe
Fried potatoes may be filled with calories but raw ones are great for your skin. They make an awesome skin-brightening scrub. Grate some raw potato, mix it with some loose tea and pour a few drops of olive oil, now use this to massage your face with circular motions. Be gentle, repeat this action for 5 minutes and then rinse with warm water. See a natural glow after this? Great!
- Skin & hair moisturising recipe
For this, you’ll need a ripe banana, mash it up and spread it all over your face. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse your face with warm water. Your skin will feel plump and hydrated. If you want more out of your edible face pack, add a spoon of honey, blend it with banana and leave it on for 15 minutes. This can also act as a deep conditioning treatment for parched hair. Wet your hair slightly, apply the mashed up bananas, keep it on for half an hour and then rinse. Your hair will be well hydrated. For a simple off-the-shelf skin moisturiser, you can use Dabur Gulabari Moisturising Lotion and for skin, try a Dabur Amla Hair Oil champi.
- Skin scrubbing recipe
Brown sugar is always an ingredient in most body scrubs, so why not make one yourself? Mix 2 spoons of coarse sugar with 1 spoon on coffee grounds and 1 spoon of olive oil, you can add 2 drops of any essential oil like vanilla and store it in a dry container. Use it once a week when you have a bath, your skin will be smooth and soft. For more body scrub ideas, read this article.
