If you knew the benefits of sesame oil, you’d simply toss out your high-end brands of serums! It is rich in linoleic acid which possesses anti-inflammatory properties to reduce cysts and curb potential pimples. The acid also aids in evening out your skin tone. High levels of anti-oxidants ensure that your skin is glowing inside-out and is baby soft to touch! It is indeed the best solution to your dull skin issues. Simply take 5-7 drops of sesame oil and massage gently into your skin before bed (OR) add 2-3 drops of the oil to your moisturizer. You’ll wake up to a gorgeous and bright skin just within a week!

We love the sweet and tangy taste of grapes. But did you know you could use them to make a brightening skin mask too? High-end brands tend to over-price their skin brightening and whitening products in the name of rich vitamin C they apparently contain. However, that’s plain gimmick as the potency of vitamin C cannot be contained for more than a month or two. Also, if you pay heed to the ingredients list, you’d be appalled to see the products advertised in the name of a certain vitamin is somewhere at the bottom. To avoid getting looted by fake claims, resort to the natural powerhouse of vitamin C, i.e., grapes. They help in building collagen, thereby improving your skin’s elasticity. This makes your face look polished and sparkly.
- Crush 6-8 Grapes along with the seeds
- Add 3 drops of Lavender essential oil
This is an amazing dual-functionary mask as the seeds of the grapes work as a scrub too, exfoliating away all your dead cells. Use this mask thrice a week.
