Let us look at some simple natural beauty tips for the face which can help you acquire naturally glowing, problem-free skin:
Use raw milk to cleanse the skin and pores
One of the best known basic natural skin cleansers is raw milk. Using raw milk helps remove unseen dirt and impurities from the face as well as the pores of the skin. It also adds a subtle glow and acts as a natural moisturizer. Dip a cotton ball into raw milk and gently cleanse your skin. You can also mix a little lemon juice with the raw milk for this purpose.
Use an Orange for a smooth complexion
Applying fresh orange juice to your face on a daily basis will help bring about an improvement in the texture of your skin as well as the skin tone. This fruit is rich in Vitamin C which enables our body to fight ageing and it also acts as a good skin toner, especially for oily skin.
Use olive oil and honey to naturally moisturize skin to avoid wrinkles and fine lines
Olive oil is a wonderful natural moisturizer loaded with antioxidants and fatty acids. Smooth on a thin layer of it onto your skin before bed every night to rejuvenate your skin and prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Honey, an excellent natural humectant (a substance that promotes retention of moisture), can help you get soft and supple skin. It is extremely useful for avoiding wrinkles, flakiness and dryness.
For normal to dry skin use a face pack made of Wheat bran powder and one tbsp each of orange juice, curd (the part of milk that coagulates when the milk sours), honey and olive oil can be used on the face.
Use lemon to brighten your complexion
Apply a solution of Lemon juice, Cucumber juice and Milk in a 2:2:1 ratio on your face to brighten up the complexion.
Dry skin cleansing
For dry skin cleansing, 10 drops of sunflower oil and three drops of raw milk should be mixed to clean your face using a cotton ball.
Oily skin cleansing
To remove excess oiliness, a mixture of 2 tbsp of tomato juice mixed with curd can be used onto face on a daily basis and washed off after 15 minutes.
Lightening dark patches
To remove dark patches on the skin, a mixture of 1 part honey with 2 parts lemon juice can be used for 15 minutes.

Sandalwood and turmeric

Aloe Vera is one of the wonders of Nature that has a number of skin and health benefits. Break open a leaf, take out the fresh gel, apply on your face and massage in. Once dry, wash off with lukewarm water. Aloe Vera cannot exactly cure acne but it has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, thus helping to reduce the swelling and redness of pimples and acne. Noticeable results can be seen in a week’s time. Moreover, drinking Aloe Vera juice can enhance the vitality of the skin and also be useful in case of stomach ailments.
