Every one loves to look good. Not just at parties, but also while going about our daily routines. We're not talking about clothes here. No, that is secondary. The most important thing is your skin. Of course, you can cover up those blemishes, pimples and marks with expensive cosmetics, but that only affects your skin more.

Our skin goes through so much every day – pollution, chemicals, dust, dirt, etc. – and we feel a quick wash, rinse and moisturising will do the trick. However, just like we require some rest and relaxation after a heavy day, our skin craves some pampering from time to time.

Therefore, we have compiled a list of awesome homemade facials you can try, to give your skin the love it needs to glow and feel nourished and fresh! Since, these facials are made with natural ingredients and contain no chemicals, you can be absolutely assured that there are no risks involved, unless you're allergic to a particular fruit or vegetable that is used in the facial.

Have a look!
