5 Natural Remedies for Glowing Skin

You don’t want to put just any old chemical or product on your face—and for good reason. 
Luckily, you don’t have to when there are so many natural remedies out there that you know you can trust. Why? Because they come from Mother Nature herself (and mother knows best).

Enjoy the wonders of the world with these five natural remedies for healthy, glowing skin.

#1 Aloe Vera

Aloe is a miracle cure for sunburns because of how hydrating it is. But its moisturizing, antioxidative, and glow-inducing properties are effective for anyone (even those who haven’t spent the afternoon burning to a crisp with a piña colada in hand).

Scrape a little aloe gel from the leaves and apply directly to your skin. What better way to end a relaxing holiday than with aloe vera covering every inch of your body—and only some of it is to soothe your sunburn this time.

#2 Vitamin B3

The right skincare products can be a total self-esteem booster, transforming what you see in the mirror from blah to bow chicka bow wow.

Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, is somewhat of a powerhouse ingredient when it comes to bright, glowing skin. Just take a look at its impressive resume of skin brightening effects:

  • Restores your skin on a cellular level
  • Repairs damaged DNA
  • Mediates the effects of sun-induced aging
  • Reduces acne and redness

Anyone looking for an extra boost of external glow would benefit from a face cream for redness, combining vitamin B3, vitamin E, ginger extract, and other powerful natural ingredients to neutralize red, irritated skin for a more balanced look.

#3 Turmeric

Turmeric is like that super supportive best friend who always brings out your inner beauty. In this case, though, it’s by reviving dull skin rather than lending you a bomb outfit or giving you the perfect smoky eye. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties to reduce puffiness and keep your skin looking supple and fresh.

DIY recipe: Go home-made for your next self-care night by making your own mint and turmeric face pack. All you need are a few basic grocery store ingredients: mint leaves to grind, a dash of turmeric powder, and enough drops of water until you can create a light paste. Apply a moderate layer to your skin, sit back and relax for about 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

#4 Yogurt

There’s no better way to start your morning than with a creamy cup of yogurt—as part of a healthy breakfast and your skincare routine.

Yogurt contains high quantities of lactic acid, which leaves you with brighter, smoother, and overall healthier skin. It’s also an excellent moisturizer, plus the creamy-cool sensation makes for a soothing sunburn remedy.

DIY recipe: Go full-on with the breakfast theme by creating a paste made with many of the same ingredients you’d find in your morning meal (all of which have brightening properties in their own right):

  • Two tablespoons of oats
  • One squeeze of honey
  • About half a lemon

Make a double batch so you have something to munch on while you apply the rest to your skin!

#5 Ginger Root Extract

Yup, this miracle ingredient is good for more than just baking ginger snap cookies and adding much-needed flavor to ginger chicken stir fry—it’s good for your skin, too!

Ginger extract is perfect for those with dull, lack-luster skin. Whether you apply it topically or incorporate it into your nightly cooking, this superfood antioxidant restores and rejuvenates fading skin, while slowing some of the more unsightly effects of aging.

Ready for the Ultimate Glow Up

These natural remedies have been right under your nose this entire time—now you can finally put them to good use! 

Whether you buy dermatologist-quality products made from these ingredients or take a chance on your own DIY face packs, you’ll be left with the kind of glow up you only ever see in infomercial before-and-after photos (but these improvements will be totally legit).
