13 Homemade Face Packs for Glowing Skin in Summer
A combo of too much heat, increased exposure to pollutants and scorching sunlight can make your skin appear dull and dry. Follow these tips for keeping your skin healthy and glowing all season long.
1. Lemon and Honey Face Pack
Two of nature’s most effective skin brighteners are honey and lemon. Mixing one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice with two tablespoons of raw honey yields a paste that can be applied to your face and left on for as long as you want.
Just make sure you wash it off thoroughly before going to bed, otherwise, your pillowcase might become yellow.
You’ll wake up with a soft, youthful glow in no time! Remember, too much sun exposure will ruin all your hard work. Always wear sunscreen when spending time outdoors or in sunlight through a window.
2. Strawberry Face Pack
This is a great way to get facial glowing skin. Make a paste of mashed strawberry and yogurt. Apply it all over your face and neck. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then wash off with warm water.

The humble oatmeal scrub is an excellent way to gently exfoliate dead skin cells from your face and make it look radiant.
It also helps get rid of blemishes, acne scars, and dark spots. All you need is just plain oats (available at any supermarket), honey, and a small bowl.
Combine ingredients together using a spoon until you get a thick paste; do not whisk it as that might break down its texture.

For an added glow, apply toner afterward. You can use it twice or thrice a week depending on how sensitive your skin is.
5. Papaya and Banana Face Pack
The enzymes in papaya and banana help remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin glowing. Take 1/2 of ripe papaya pulp, and mashed banana and mix them to form a fine paste.

Let it absorb into your skin before you proceed with your normal skincare routine. Wash it off after 30 minutes with lukewarm water.
6. Coconut Oil Face Pack
Honey has natural bleaching agents that can make your skin look fairer and decrease pigmentation.

7. Cucumber Juice Face Mask
Cucumber juice has a cooling and de-puffing effect on the skin. The tomatoes can remove tan from the skin, making it fair and glowing.
Take one tomato, grate it finely and make a paste out of it. Add about 2 tablespoons of cucumber juice to it.
Apply on the face as a pack for 10 minutes, and then wash off with lukewarm water followed by a cold water rinse. Do not use soap or any cleanser after rinsing your face to avoid drying your skin up further.

Turmeric brightens up your complexion by removing dead cells from your skin surface. Honey has antibacterial properties which help fight acne and pimples effectively without causing any side effects.
