Radiant skin is a common desire, but because of our busy schedules, daily stress, and exposure to pollution, skin can become dull and lifeless. With Christmas around the corner, everyone tries to look their best and ultimately succumbs to the glut of skin-improving cosmetics. Although they may offer some relief, they include hundreds of chemicals and aren’t suitable for all skin types.

So, let us delve deeper into some homemade do-it-yourself face packs for glowing skin that are without any side effects. All the face packs are super easy to prepare and what’s more, you don’t need to go far to hunt for the ingredients, all are available in your kitchen.

Here are 5 DIY face packs to make your skin glow:

1. Honey-banana-raw milk face pack

Bananas, which are high in potassium, vitamins C and E, and honey, all help brighten skin. Milk helps to gently remove dead skin cells. All skin types can use the banana face pack.

3. Gram flour and turmeric face pack

Besan, or gram flour, is rich in protein, fiber, and carbs and plays a role in combating various skin issues, including dark spots, acne, and anti-ageing. Moreover, turmeric acts as an excellent source of skin brightening.

  • Make a paste with 2 tablespoons of gram flour, a pinch of turmeric, and yogurt in a bowl.
  • Apply the paste evenly on your skin and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once the paste dries up, wash your face.
  • You can add a few drops of lemon juice for oily skin.

4. Milk powder face pack

A milk powder face pack containing yogurt and lemon juice is excellent to get rid of dark spots and blemishes. The combo works wonders to restore the skin’s natural glow, removes pigmentation and of course, helps to clear the dark spots.
