Everyone wants that gorgeous glowing skin as you get ready for the Diwali season. We assure you that a natural glow can be achieved with simple home remedies. Wedding Affair presents some home remedies for flawless skin for Diwali.

Turmeric & Honey

Sanbe Beauty

Mix about half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with a cup of gram flour (chickpea flour). Add enough milk/water and mix well to form a smooth paste. Now, add a few drops of rose water and mix again. Apply this paste on your face and neck and leave on till it dries. Then, rinse with cool water. Honey is a great moisturizer and helps to keep the skin well-hydrated. Honey’s anti-bacterial properties help to ward off infections and also reduce blemishes and acne at home. Honey ensures a glow in skin. It is rich in bleaching properties and helps in fading of pigmentation and scars.

Coconut Oil

This remedy works best for dry and dull skin. Coconut oil locks the moisture in the skin and also nourishes it with essential fatty acids. It also protects your skin from UV radiation and enhances skin barrier function. All these factors can make your skin glow. You must use coconut oil every night before going to bed for a nice glow.Diwali

Drink Water

You didn’t think we’d skip the H2O, did you? Your skin needs major hydration to stay dewy and clear, so stock up. It can be tough to stay hydrated in weather extremes, both hot and cold. Lug your water bottle with you everywhere, and keep sipping throughout the day. How much water you need will depend on your size, the weather, and your activity level. While it’s up for debate how much water we really need on a daily basis, the Institute of Medicine suggests shooting for 9 to 13 cups a day. You can get an idea of your hydration level by looking at your pee — an accurate indication of your water intake. Ensure this for a beautiful glow.

Gram Flour

This has been a tried and tested agent in homes over the years. Besan hasn’t failed when the desire of a healthier and shinier skin has come calling. Besan or gram flour acts as a natural exfoliator and helps in removing dead skin cells. you don’t need to buy fancy cosmetics or face packs off the shelves. Besan works wonders by bringing to surface a healthier and glowing skin.


Olive Oil

You can apply olive oil directly to your skin. However — and this is important — you’ll want to skip cheap olive oils, opting for natural or organic extra virgin olive oil. It’s purer and safer for your skin to glow. You can also buy olive oil blends with lavender, almond, or grapeseed oils that are specifically designed as a skin treatment. It doesn’t take much. A few drops will probably be enough to cover your face. You can also mix olive oil with other skin-healthy ingredients like honey or yoghurt. However, if you’re prone to acne, skip olive oil as it can clog pores in some skin types.
