We want flawless and glowing skin but getting that perfect look has its own troubles and worries. Most of us are generally ready to try anything under the sun as a quick-fix but glowing skin is not so easy to achieve.

Clear, flawless, blemish-free and acne-free skin is not a dream. All you need are a few home remedies and DIYs to get beautiful looking skin.

Here are a few DIYs that will keep you radiant during and post the festivities.

Sun-tan and Pigmentation

Sweeten up your at-home beauty routine with some papaya, pure aloe vera gel and rose water. Papaya is rich with a secret beauty ingredient – papain. This enzyme has skin brightening properties. This mix also works as an exfoliator and helps in removing inactive protein cells and dead skin.

Fight Acne and Pimples

Create a spa-like environment and look well-rested at the same time with a DIY face mask. Add buttermilk to sandalwood powder and then mix it in with some natural aloe vera gel to prevent the formation of acne. Buttermilk is rich in lactic acid which is good for skin. This mask improves skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles and keeps it glowing.

Skin Brightening

Blessed with anti-oxidant and skin-brightening properties, tomato juice has a lot of benefits for the skin. It is rich in Vitamin C and mixing it with organic aloe vera gel makes it an excellent skin brightener. It helps in getting rid of tanning, counters the discoloration of skin and regulates the sebum if you have oily skin. It also gives your skin a glow and keeps dullness at bay.


Aloe vera is loaded with skin benefits. It also contains medicinal properties that reduce acne, black spots and other skin problems. Almonds are rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants. Regular application of a mixture of egg-whites, almond paste, milk and aloe vera gel will prevent fine lines, wrinkles and keep you looking young. It moisturizes the skin, keeping it acne-free. It also works wonders in reducing stretch marks and dark circles.

Glowing Skin

There are so many things easily available that you can use to pamper yourself during the ongoing festivities. Combine natural ingredients like honey, milk, rose water, turmeric and aloe vera gel to get a natural glow within minutes. These homemade tricks will keep you away from harmful chemicals and let your skin do the talking.
