- 1 ounce purified mineral water
- 3 tablespoons plain organic oatmeal
- 1 medium onion, peeled
**Note: if you don't have oily skin but still want to try the oatmeal, omit the onions and simply add cold milk to a couple Tbsp of oatmeal**
Tomato Skin Brightener (Oily Skin)
Cut tomato in two pieces. Take a lemon and cut it into half, squeeze half lemon juice in a small plate and add little sugar to the lemon juice. Now dip the half cut tomato into the juice and and rub it in circular motions on the face and neck. Wash your face after ten minutes.
Almond Scrub (all skin types)
Soak few almonds in water for few hours and grind them into thick paste, mix it with milk and exfoliate (scrub) your face with it. The coarse particles will help you remove the dead cells from the skin and milk will nourish the skin making it smooth. Regular exfoliation with almonds also helps in lightening skin tone. You can exfoliate your skin with almonds and milk twice a week.
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4 teaspoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed or bottled)
- 3 teaspoons plain or Greek yogurt
- 1 egg white
Remember: when exfoliating, do NOT scrub til you bleed. No, but really. Be soft and gentle with your face, it's the only one you have!! After exfoliating, be sure to apply a sunscreen (if its daytime) or a good moisturizer (nighttime).
