Most women think that all they need to do in order to get blemish-free, glowing skin is purchase the right products and then use them regularly. You may not be seeing the results the bottle promises because the truth is that many store bought products are loaded with chemicals, even the ones that appear to be natural! This robs your skin of its natural oils and moisture, leaving it dry, wrinkled, and in many cases with blemishes. Oh, what to do?!
If you’re wondering how to get glowing skin that’s healthy and blemish free you should try a DIY face mask that you can make in your home. Below we share with you four homemade DIY face masks for glowing skin that will help you get the soft blemish free skin you crave.
DIY Face Masks For Glowing Skin
One mask does not fit all though. If you want to decrease the oiliness in your skin, you’ll want to use a face mask with lime juice as lime acids are very beneficial for the skin, especially when applied externally. Have acne scars and dark spots that wont go away? Try a Chamomile mask as it will noticeably lighten skin over a period of time and give you younger, healthy skin.
Instant glow in your skin can be achieved by using a papaya face mask as papaya acts as a natural exfoliating agent that removes dirt and dead skin from deep within the layers of skin. Who knew a papaya could be so helpful?! Our papaya face mask below gives an instant glow, but one will benefit greatly by using it consistently for a period of time.
Below, we have four DIY face masks that you can make yourself at home! Choose which mask works best for your skin type and then get started mixing it up. Let us know which face mask for naturally glowing skin you choose and how it works for you. G’luck!
1. Honey & Rice Flour Mask – To Get Moisturized, Soft Skin
The rice flour acts as the basic exfoliating ingredient while the honey moisturizes the skin. The result is even-toned, fresh, soft, moisturized skin.
DIY HONEY & RICE FACE MASK:
In a cup of warm water, mix one teaspoon of honey and two heaping tablespoons of rice flour. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients and apply the resultant mixture evenly on your face. Once it dries slightly, about 15 to 20 minutes, scrub your face using circular motions. The scrubbing helps to exfoliate and thus remove dead skin.
2. Lime & Cucumber Mask – To Decrease Oiliness
Apply this face mask on your face for a week and see how the oiliness decreases and the skin starts looking lighter and fresh. Lime juice applied to skin is especially helpful for people with oily skin while cucumber is one of the best ingredients for skin lightening. Additionally, this face mask is very good if you get sunburn.
DIY LIME & CUCUMBER FACE MASK:
To prepare this face mask, mix a tablespoon of cucumber juice (available at stores or make it at home by running cucumbers through the juicer), a teaspoon of lime juice, a teaspoon of Vaseline, and one teaspoon of turmeric powder.

Leave the mixture on your face for half an hour and then wash it off with lukewarm tap water.
