1 Avacodo Mask Avocados are amazing for dry skin and hair, so I had to include it in one of the skin care remedies. Grab a ripe avocado and cut it in half and get ¼ cup of honey. Mash the avocado in a bowl and pour in the honey. Apply the mixture all over your face and wait 10 minutes before rinsing off with a cool washcloth. You can also mix one avocado and 2 tablespoons of honey and apply it to your hair for 20-30 minutes for a hydrating hair mask! 2. Lemon Lemon is one of the best ingredients that you can use to promote clear skin. The citric acid present in lemon helps keep the skin clear by removing dead cells, and its vitamin C content helps reduce dark spots by increasing the cell renewal process. Lemon also has bleaching properties that will help improve your overall skin complexion. Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. After this, rub cucumber slices on your skin to soften and moisturize it. Do this daily or every other day. Another option is squeeze the juice of onehalf lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse it off. To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Scrub in a circular motion and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once a week to enjoy glowing skin. Baking soda balances pH levels of the skin, which is very important to maintain clear skin. Plus, its mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties help deal with problems like acne, pimples and spots. It also works as an excellent exfoliating agent to keep the skin free from dirt, impurities and dead skin cells. Mix one teaspoon of baking soda with one teaspoon of water or lemon juice to make a paste. Cleanse your face and use the paste to gently exfoliate the skin. Finally rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat it dry with a towel. Follow this remedy two or three times a week. Alternatively, mix one teaspoon each of baking soda and raw honey. Apply this mixture onto damp skin and massage gently for just one minute. Then wash with lukewarm water. Finally, splash some cold water on your face to close the pores. Follow this remedy once a week. Brown sugar is a great gentle exfoliant and honey is anti-bacterial and helps the skin retain moisture. You can use many different oils as a base; we are using walnut oil. Since you aren’t using any preservatives the ingredients might separate a bit, just mix them up again before using the scrub.
