    For glowing skin
    Taking hot water with lime juice first thing in the morning.
    Taking tomatoes in the morning.
    Before having a bath apply tomato juice all over the body ,wait for 1/2 hr and then have a bath.Your skin would simply glow.
    Mix wheat husk with moong dal flour .Use this powder instead of soap.

    Here are few more tips for glowing skin
    Home Remedies for Glowing Skin & Smooth Skin
    You can transform your dry skin into a super smooth, soft, supple, and glowing skin by using these home remedies.

    1. Mash a banana with milk and apply on face and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water to get a skin that will glow.
    2. Apply honey on your face and neck for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water. Your skin will glow and become soft and smooth.
    3. Mix egg white with honey and apply on the face for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water.
    4. Make a paste of one teaspoon of walnut powder, honey and lemon juice. Scrub your face with this paste and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water.
    5. Rub a piece of papaya on your face and neck for 15 minutes.
    6. Make a paste by mixing 2 tablespoon turmeric (haldi) powder in orange juice. Scrub it on your face and neck and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash it with cold water.
    7. Make a paste by mixing mashed banana, honey, lemon juice and margarine. Apply on face for overnight. Smear on hands and feet, and wash off in the morning (wear gloves in hands and socks in feet).
    8. Boil cabbage in water. Wash your face with this water.
    9. Powder mango peels and mix 1 teaspoon milk powder and rub on face, neck, and hands. Wash it off after 15 minutes.
    10. Mix one cup of sugar with 1 tablespoon fresh lemon / lime juice. While taking bath, lather your body and face heavily with a soft soap like Dove. Scrub the whole body and face with the sugar mixture on the lather.
    11. After a shower apply vaseline over your entire body. Shower again after one hour. Repeat twice a month.
    12. Mix corn (polenta) flour with egg white and apply on your face. When your face is dried completely in about 1/2 an hour, put your fingers in warm water and massage your face. Repeat daily for 10-15 days.
    13. Soft and smooth hands for life
    Mix 3 teaspoons of baby oil and 2 teaspoons of sugar together. Rub your hands, feet or any part and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rince it off with warm water.

    re: For clear & glowing skin

    Wheat husk with moong flour works superb and even papaya paste works very good. i have tried those for many yrs and everyone who saw me after 1yr or so commented on my skin. now i have no time and stopped all these, and dh comments how good my skin was before.

    Thanks for posting the list.

    re: For clear & glowing skin

    you can also try this paste for a cleaner smoother face -

    put a pinch of turmeric powder (haldi) in about 2 table spoons gram flour (besan).
    add required amount of lime juice and make a paste.
    Apply on face and leave until dry.
    Scrub it off and wash.

    For dry skin, a teaspoon of cream (malai) can also be added to the paste.

    Charu..

    re: For clear & glowing skin

    Hi,

    I heard from my aunt who visited China/Mongol region last year, the people there drink a mixture of almonds, pistachios, saffron, fresh or dried rose petals in milk daily for their fair & glowing complexion. Anybody has tried this or knows about it, please do share your views.

    Regards,

    re: For clear & glowing skin

    Hi latha,

    Moong flour is smooth flour made from moong dall(yellow

    moong).(prepare flour like chana flour) Wheat husk is not the broken

    wheat but it is the dry outer

    covering of wheat (brown colour) u get when u seive the wheat flour.





    bye
