If you want to have a beautiful complexion, exfoliate often. Dead cells accumulate at the surface of your skin and leave it looking dull. Some effective natural ingredients are right in your kitchen.
- Papaya is great for exfoliating and whitening. Peel off the skin and mash it, then apply it to your face and allow it to sit for a few minutes. You can also wash your face with pieces of papaya.
- Egg yolks will not only nourish your face, but they help to get rid of blackheads. Before you go to bed, apply egg yolk to your face with a brush, and massage it in. Let it dry and rinse. Do this twice a week for best results.
- Lemon is great for your skin. Squeeze lemon juice into 50 ml of water and add 3 tbs of flour to thicken the mixture. Apply it to your face for 30 minutes. Use twice weekly, and it will help lighten freckles.
- Use Almond powder for really damaged skin. Mix 4 tbs of almond powder with 2 tbs of coarse sea salt and 1 tbs of honey. Allow it to soak in for a half hour; then rinse.
