A clear complexion indicates good health and a wholesome way of life. With good skin, there’s no need for makeup unless the purpose is to enhance facial features. But for most people, clear skin is something that seems unattainable to achieve what with pollution, fast-paced lifestyles and bad habits. Luckily, it isn’t all that hard to do and one need not visit professionals unless the problem is severe.

Normal skin: Those with normal skin have it the easiest but to give a glow to the face one can mix curd with tomatoes and use the solution to massage. Let it dry and wash off with cold water.

Oily skin: People with oily skin are more prone to pimples and eruptions as the pores get clogged by sweat and dirt. To keep the skin clean and control oil production, make a paste of water and flour and apply on the face. Let it dry and wash off with cold water.

Dry skin: Dry skin can cause wrinkles as the skin becomes stretched. To keep the face properly moisturized, make your own moisturizer-cum-cleanser with glycerin, rose water, honey and vinegar.

Combination skin: Combination skin types have it the hardest as the cheeks are dry while the T-zone is oily. To balance it out, make a paste of fuller’s earth and mint leaves. Refrigerate it overnight and let it thaw for about 10 minutes. Apply on the face and wash off after 15 minutes.
