How to get glowing skin at home
To get a clear and soft skin is a dream of many people especially women and young girls.
I am going to show you a couple of natural, safe and home based methods which help you to get a clear, soft and glowing skin.
First thing first!
The most important step to get a glowing skin is cleansing and the use of appropriate cleansing method suitable for each type of skin.
There are different types of skin such as:
- And Normal
Each skin type needs to be treated by methods appropriate to that type.
If you skin is dry, it may suffer from roughness, itching and irritation.
For this type of skin, use a cleanser that contains moisturizer to reduce dryness and roughness.
Here are some simple and natural methods to keep your dry skin moisturized and hydrated.
- Natural Rose Water
- Yogurt and Lemon Mix
Using any of these on a daily basis will act as natural moisturizer to keep you skin clean, moist, soft and glowing.
Oily skin may have several issues as the excess oils may cause acne, wide pores and even irritation. Choosing the right cleanser for the oily skin can reduce the excess oils without making it dry or dehydrated.
Generally, people think that you do not need any moisturizer for an oily skin. But…this is not correct!
Use a daily moisturizer for the skin to keep it fresh, glowing and soft. It will also help in reducing other problems such as age spots, acne and wide pores.
Using oil free lotions for such skin will do the trick. Natural moisturizers such as rose water also works wonders.
Another trick is to avoid washing your face with warm water. Instead use cold water to close the pores. This helps to prevent discharge of excess oils, accumulation of dust and bacteria getting inside the pores.
Just like the other types, it is important to use the right type of cleanser for normal skin. .
The following can be used on normal skin to keep it fresh, glowing and soft.
- Olive Oil
- Organic coconut oil
