How to Get Spotless Skin at Home

Who doesn't want a clear, radiant face? How much money do you spend, on average, cleaning your face? New products are constantly being advertised, and in our quest to look attractive to others, so many of us spend an unimaginable part of our budget on expensive creams and cleansers, only to be disappointed with the results. Moreover, commercial products, with their harsh synthetic chemicals, can even make things worse.

Having clean, healthy, and glowing skin doesn't have to break the bank. Natural ingredients on hand in your kitchen can be just as effective as fancy potions, sometimes even more so. On top of that, preventative measures taken to maintain your skin cost nothing at all.

11 DIY Face Masks Made From Common Kitchen Items

  1. Oatmeal Antioxidant
  2. Tea Leaf Age-Defier
  3. Semolina Brightener
  4. Lemon Scrub
  5. Papaya Oil-Absorber
  6. Egg on Your Face
  7. Milk and Honey
  8. Orange Glow
  9. Simple Clay
  10. Milky Turmeric Softener
  11. Red in the Face

These recipes are made with herbal and natural ingredients that are usually harmless to the skin, easy to find, and likely to already be in your kitchen or the nearest grocery store. They promote glowing and soft skin.

Each recipe should be left on the skin until it dries or for between 10 and 15 minutes, then washed off. Afterward, you may wish to apply a light moisturizer if your skin feels dry or tight.

1. Oatmeal Antioxidant

This oatmeal and cinnamon face mask promotes cell growth as it's rich in anti-oxidants. Like all these remedies, it's incredibly easy to make. Take two teaspoons of dry oatmeal and half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Mix them together with milk to make a paste and gently apply it all over your face using circular motions. Keep it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse it with plain water. Your face will glow!

2. Tea Leaf Age-Defier

Tea is very effective in keeping your skin glowing as you age. The flavonoid content in tea has anti-aging properties and also contributes to skin lightening. Make a skincare concoction by boiling a spoon of tea leaves or a teabag until it makes a strong brew. Let it cool and add a hefty amount of brown sugar. Mix some cream and mix until it forms a paste. Apply to your face in a circular motion for about 10 minutes. Wash it off with plain water to get softer and glowing skin.

3. Semolina Brightener

Semolina flour—also known as sooji—is great for clean and glowing skin. Make a mixture of semolina and milk, apply it to your face, and leave it until it dries. Wash away with warm water.

4. Lemon Scrub

Sugar is a great exfoliant and lemon can be used to brighten skin. Mix the juice of a lemon with sugar to make a paste. Scrub it over your face in a circular motion and leave it for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water, being sure that all the sugar has dissolved away.

5. Papaya Oil-Absorber

Papaya absorbs the excess oil, improving your skin's appearance if you have oily skin. Take a ripe papaya, cut it into small pieces, and add a teaspoon of sandalwood powder or bentonite clay. Add honey to make a paste. Apply the mixture all over your face. Leave it for about 15 minutes and then wash it off with plain water. This is also an effective anti-aging and anti-wrinkle remedy.

6. Egg on Your Face

Eggs are high in protein, minerals, and vitamins which are very effective in repairing your skin. Take the white of one egg and beat it with a teaspoon of yoghurt and lemon juice until it forms a paste. Apply it all over your face. Leave it for 15 minutes and then wash it off with warm water.

7. Milk and Honey

Add a teaspoon of honey to two teaspoons of milk. Then add a teaspoon of gram flour to make a paste. Apply it all over your face, leave it for 15 minutes, and wash it off with warm water to nourish your skin.

8. Orange Glow

Squeeze the juice from an orange and add two teaspoons of rose water. Apply it all over your face and leave it for 15 minutes. Wash it off with plain water. This will make your skin soft and radiant.

9. Simple Clay

Take two teaspoons of a facial clay like bentonite clay and add a teaspoon of rose water. You can add a few drops of glycerine to make it even more effective. Make a paste and apply it all over your face and leave it on until dry. Rinse with plain water.

10. Milky Turmeric Softener

Take two teaspoons of bentonite clay and add a teaspoon of milk and curd. Then add one teaspoon of gram flour and half a teaspoon of turmeric powder. Mix them well to make a paste and apply it all over your face. Leave for 15 minutes and wash with plain water to get softer skin.

11. Red in the Face

Take a small crushed tomato and half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix them well to make a paste and apply it to your face. Leave it for 15 minutes, then wash it with plain water. Apply this method twice a week for better results.

Simple Tips to Maintain Your Skin

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When it comes to your face, it's better to keep your body in good shape by following a healthy lifestyle than to try and fix problems after they arise. For good skin:

  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet that includes green vegetables and protein-rich food and minimal processed food. Dark green vegetables and lean protein help with the regeneration of cells.
  • Get at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night. Cultivate a before-bed routine to help you fall asleep quickly and consistently.
  • Fruit is very good for your skin, as it is rich in fiber, vitamins, and water. Fruit is great for healing digestive issues as well as skin problems.
  • Maintain your skin hygiene. Clean your face at the end of the day to wash away any pollution. Wash your face with a cleanser suitable for your skin type, avoiding soap. Soap contains sodium carbonate which dries out the skin.
  • Wipe off your makeup with either a makeup remover or a light carrier oil before going to sleep.
  • Massage a light oil like almond oil in your face, neck, hands, and any part of your body which is exposed to the elements. Almond oil nourishes your skin and keeps it healthy. If possible you can massage your entire body with almond oil.
  • Avoid prolonged stress, which can result in dull, lifeless skin and wrinkles.
  • Exercise regularly. Not only does physical activity reduce stress levels, it improves circulation, giving your skin a healthy glow.

For make skin glowing try to use dermalmd glowing serum and I really love the the dermalmd brand. I've used a few of their other products and dermalmd one is also a winner. It goes on smoothly and doesn't irritate my skin. I wouldn't say I notice a big change in my skin, but I do think my skin feels more smooth and supple and make my face glowing.

Pat on June 21, 2016:

As I've mentioned before, I like to glow. However, I do not like to be shiny. I also find that my somewhat-dry skin, gets a 'lil greasier during the summer, which is to be expected. Right now, the ONLY THING I will use in the summer is the Lady Soma Renewal Serum - It's keeping my skin conditioned, fresh, and not too shiny, no matter the heat!!!

My face felt and looked so good while using Dermalmd glowing serum. it was easy to use and doesn't take a lot of product each time. You can quickly see results and that is definitely a plus for me. It arrived quickly and i was able to begin using it right away. I really enjoyed this product and will continue to use it and plan on buying more in the future as well as helping turn on my family and friends to this.

Germayne Palipti on January 08, 2016:

Dermalmd Serum is simply amazing!!! My skin has felt more moisturized and youthful since using this than it has since I was 20. A little bit goes a very long ways, so I have no doubt this bottle will last me a very long time. I use it twice a day, both in the morning and night, and will continue to do so FOREVER!!!! Can't tell you how much I love this stuff!!
