Want to have that smooth, taut skin forever? Shun cosmetics and go natural.

By using a few home-made remedies, we can look forward to getting a flawless skin naturally.

Natural Skin Smoothers
There are a number of natural skin smoothers available in our kitchen which can help us keep our skin soft and healthy. Let’s explore these skin smoothers and see how we can use them:

1. Carrots
Cook 2-3 carrots and mash them thoroughly. Mix it with honey and apply directly to the skin for 10 minutes. Finish with a cold rinse to get a soft and a glowing skin back.

2. Honey
Honey is the nature’s gift for getting a flawless skin. It helps to reduce wrinkles on the skin. Apply honey on your skin for 20-30 minutes and rinse with luke-warm water followed by cold water. For best results, do this once a week.

3. Yoghurt
Yoghurt has a cooling effect on the skin. You can add one-fourth cup of orange juice to a tablespoon of yoghurt and apply on your skin. It will look radiant.

4. Papaya
Papaya can do wonders for your skin. Apply papaya directly on your face and neck and leave for 15-20 minutes. Wash with cold water and see the difference in your face.

5. Banana
To smoothen a dry and supple skin, mix mashed bananas to a cup of cold milk. Apply on your face and wash it off after 15 minutes.

6. Orange
Do not throw orange peels. You can dry the peels and use them to control skin blemishes on the face. Mix dried and grounded peels with curd and apply the paste for 20 minutes. Follow with a cold rinse.

7. Cucumber
Cucumber is a natural astringent for the skin. Use cucumber juice to close the pores of the face. Cucumber has a cooling effect on the skin during the summers.

8. Turmeric
Turmeric or ‘haldi’ can be used to get rid of facial hair. Make a paste of haldi and milk and apply gently on the face. Wash it off with cold water after 25-30 minutes or when it dries. It will make your skin smooth, fairer and glowing.

If followed regularly, all these home-made remedies can give you a naturally smooth skin without shelling extra bucks on cosmetic products. So what are you waiting for? Try these remedies and become the envy of all.
