Age, exposure to the sun, poor diet and pollution can cause the skin to become dull and lifeless.
It no longer seems to have the same youthfulness and plump like it did when you were in your teens. The cause of dull skin depends immensely on our lifestyle – eating habits, skin-care regime, stress-free life, sleeping time, drinking water, exercising, etc.
If your skin has lost its charm and appears to be dull then here are some easy tips to rejuvenate and revitalize it.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliation helps the skin to rid itself of the dead cells which block the surface of the skin. Exfoliation helps in speeding the process of shedding dead cells and makes your skin glow. There is nothing better than natural ingredients that can help you bring back the glow of your face.
Mix a tablespoon of sugar with a little warm water and rub it in circular motions over your face. Scrub your face for 10 minutes and then wash off with cold water. You can also buy scrubs available in the market – look for apricot extract or walnut shell powder based scrubs.
Apply Almond Oil/Almond Butter
Almond oil is rich in Vitamins B, A, and E. It opens up clogged pores and seals the moisture of the skin. It not only makes your skin glow but also makes it soft and smooth. You will also notice your skin to have become a shade lighter with continuous application. Just take a few drops and massage it on your face, neck, and hands and keep it overnight.
Apply Juice of Orange and Cucumber
Enlarged pores hold sebum, dirt and dead skin. Orange juice can effectively shrink these pores and gives shine to your skin. Cucumber is rich in ascorbic acid and has bleaching properties. It helps in soothes the skin and reduces swelling.
The PH level of cucumber is similar to that of our skin and thus help in restoring back the glow of the skin. It also has nourishing, hydrating and astringent properties. Mix equal amounts of cucumber juice and orange juice and apply it on your face and neck. Wash it off after 10 minutes.
Yogurt helps in moisturizing the skin. It reduces discoloration of the skin, prevents premature aging and removes sunburn. It contains lactic acid which exfoliates our skin and gives it a natural glow.
It effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles on your face. You can apply yogurt directly or mix it with honey or rose water and then apply to increase its benefits for your face. Leave the pack for 20 minutes and then wash it off with water.
