Raw turmeric is a wonderful herbal medicine. It helps heal the skin and while at it, it also lightens the skin tone. Aloe Vera plant has properties that soothe the skin, increases the growth of new cells and helps reduce tanning.

Take a small amount on the tips of your fingers and evenly spread the paste. Apply this on your face, neck and all the exposed areas that need a good cleanse and repair. In about 15-20 mins the sticky paste will start drying up and that is usually enough time for it to work on your skin. You can now wash it off gently and subsequently moisturise.
2. Fresh Milk Cream and Green Tea Toner
Another ingredient for a home facial for glowing skin at home is green tea, which is rich in antioxidants. When applied topically, it promotes collagen production in the skin. An important ingredient to keep skin firm and prevent sagging.
