Regardless of age or complexion, one thing that seems to distress women around the world is the appearance of a tired, damaged skin. The skin can look tired due to several reasons, including stress, fatigue and inadequate sleep, etc. These factors can leave their footprints all over your face, making the latter look tired no matter how hard you try to spruce it up.

Here are some excellent natural facials that you can opt for over the weekend to get back that glow on your face. These facials can work on your tired skin and make it look fresh, rejuvenated and literally gorgeous almost instantly.

Saffron and Coconut Milk

Women in India have been using saffron from as long as one can remember to retain that beautiful glow on their faces. So it would only be natural that the first mask we talk about here contains this ingredient. Coconut milk on the other hand, is an excellent moisturizer that can keep your skin hydrated, supple and soft for longer periods.

What You Need To Do

Add a pinch of saffron to a cup of coconut milk. Boil this milk for 5-10 minutes. Let it cool nicely afterwards and wait for it to thicken. Apply the thickened milk all over your face and let it stay there for 15 minutes before washing it off with cool water. Your skin will feel refreshed immediately.

What You Need To Do

Mash a banana in a bowl. Add two tablespoons of honey to this paste and mix nicely. Apply this mask all over your face and keep it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing your face with cool water. You will be amazed with the instantaneous results.

Curd, Lemon and Potato Juice

This might sound like an odd pairing. But it creates plenty of magic for sure. The high starch content in potato would help remove blemishes on the skin while lemon juice acts as a natural bleaching agent for fairness. And then we have curd which is not far behind in providing its own benefits by moisturizing the skin nicely.

What You Need To Do

Blend a potato and extract its juice. Mix one tablespoon of this juice with an equal amount of lemon juice. Add in a tablespoon of curd and mix nicely to form a paste. Apply this paste evenly on your face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Wash it off with cool water afterwards to get refreshed, rejuvenated skin immediately.

Carrots, Cream and Avocado

Again, another surprise pairing with equally surprising benefits for the skin. Avocado is loaded with Vitamin E which would rehydrate the skin and improve its texture considerably. Carrots on the other hand, contain plenty of antioxidants that help rejuvenate skin. And cream is known to contain plenty of proteins that can work on your skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells to take over where the older, worn off cells left off.

What You Need To Do

Steam some carrots in boiling water for about 15 minutes. Mash them to form a paste. Mash an avocado and mix it with the carrot paste. Add half cup of heavy cream as well as an egg white into the mixture. Add about three tablespoons of honey for additional benefits (more moisture). Mix all the ingredients nicely and apply the thick paste on your face and neck. Wash off this paste with lukewarm water after 15 minutes and notice the glow your face get simmediately afterwards.
