History is proof that Cleopatra was a renowned beauty even in the ancient world. Her matchless beauty and charm mesmerized whoever saw her. Little is known if her beauty was natural or she took extreme skin care to make her skin flawless and attractive but whatever be the case; the ancient Egyptian scriptures provide us with minimum clues about her skincare regime. Though time travel isn’t possible to ask her for her skincare formulas, we can surely rely on the contemporary solutions which are available to achieve, not comparable, but at least an enviable glowing skin.
Many products promise to give us a healthy, glowing and radiant skin. But nothing beats the home remedies passed down through ages from our great-grandmothers and grandmothers. Grandmas always know best as they had little cosmetics available during their times but were still considered beauties of their eras.
Home remedies that vouch for being successful:
- Multani Mitti and Rose Water
You might remember your grandma running behind you with a bowl consisting of a mixture of Multani Mitti and rose water but little did you knew about its benefits at that time. At some point in our lives, we all suffer from acne and blemishes either triggered by hormonal imbalances or pollution. But you won’t believe what wonder this mixture does on your face. This fantastic combo helps you not only to fight pimples and acne, but it also helps in getting rid of those nasty blackheads and whiteheads. It deep cleanses your skin and helps reduces tanning and brightens up your skin. What more? It also possesses antiseptic properties.
- Glycerin and rosewater
Conveniently and economically available, glycerin and rose water are two things that everyone should have possession of to keep your skin nourished and toned. Individually, these two ingredients do marvel on your skin, but when combined, they help you deal with those persistent pimple marks and keep your skin hydrated, moisturized, glowing and soft.
- Turmeric Powder with milk or cream
Turmeric and milk mixture is another home remedy which your grandmother and mother would firmly stand by. The magical combination of turmeric with milk or cream is proven to help you get a clear, acne free skin. You thus get an even skin tone, and it also contributes to reducing wrinkles, skin pigmentation and tanning.
- Exercise every day
This doesn’t need you to make a paste or a face mask, but every person with a glowing skin would suggest you to exercise to be a master of healthy skin. Exercising increases the blood flow to your skin cells keeping them nourished. You don’t need to follow an extensive exercise regime or necessarily hit the gym. Half an hour of morning or evening walk in a pleasant weather or cycling and running would provide you with remarkable changes in your skin tone and health.
Everyone desires to have healthy, even toned, radiant and soft skin. Why spend more on those expensive high-end branded products when you can achieve them naturally at home?
