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.
