Natural Ways to Promote Skin Glow

There is nothing healthier than a glowing complexion and with the stresses and strains of urban life, your skin takes a lot of punishment; sunlight, dust and pollution can all have a negative impact on your skin. The Australian climate can be punishing on the skin. Of course, eating a balanced diet is important for healthy-looking skin, and with that in mind, here are a few natural ways to promote a glowing complexion.

  1. Virgin coconut oil – Massage the oil into your muscles at the end of a long day; this is something for your partner to get involved in (who knows where that might lead?) Coconut oil has long been used for dry skin and regardless of your skin type, coconut oil nourishes the skin and promotes a healthy glow.
  2. Aloe Vera – This wonder plant nourishes the skin, treats acne and prevents wrinkles. Break open the plant and apply the gel to your face, neck, arms and legs – leave the gel on for 15-20 minutes then rinse off with water. This natural material gives the skin a healthy-looking shine, plus aloe vera aids skin elasticity. If you encounter any skin issues, contact Dee-Pigment & Skin Clinic, a leading Australian skincare specialist with a diverse range of services.
  3. The magic of milk – You may not know that milk is good for your skin; dabbing cotton wool into milk and applying it to your skin will definitely show positive results. You can make a milk paste by taking 3 teaspoons of milk and mixing it with 1 teaspoon of honey and some gram flour; apply this as a face pack and leave it for 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and gently pat your skin dry.
  4. Raw honey – Massage raw honey into your skin, using your fingers to massage the skin in a circular motion, which helps the honey to be absorbed into the skin. Leave the honey on your skin for 5 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Honey is a moisturising agent that, if used regularly, prevents wrinkles and signs of ageing, while honey is also high in antioxidants, which help to remove skin blemishes and acne scars.
  5. Papaya face pack – Very few women know that papaya is great for the skin; cut the fruit into small pieces and mash it in a bowl until it becomes a paste, add a teaspoonful of honey and apply the mixture as a face pack and after 20 minutes, rinse off with warm water. One variation is to add a little milk.

Mother Nature has the solutions for everything and all of the above can be used to make your skin take on a healthy glow. There is no need for expensive serum when you can take a few natural things and apply them to your skin.
