This pack removes tan, gives a healthy glow and softer skin. You can add a tsp of honey if your skin is dry.
Daily massage a drop of sweet almond oil around your eyes with your ring finger in circular movements, on top of eyelid and dark cicles, before going to bed. You would definitely notice improvement in your skin around the eyes. Almond oil massage is also known to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and laughing lines.
Mix 2 tsp aloe vera gel, 1 tsp lemon juice, 2 tsp brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Apply this scrub on your face/body and massage in cirular motions for 5 minutes. Wash with cold water.

This one is my personal favorite. I have used it for a while and works wonders on your skin. Grind 3 tbsp of uncooked oats with 4 almonds and 2 cashews, into a smooth dry powder. You can store this powder in refrigerator for 3 weeks. So that you can apply this pack when you come back home from work.
Take 2 tbsp of this powder, add 1 tbsp of any fruit pulp at home (I have tried with Kiwi/Strawberry/Apple/Banana), 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp milk/malai (for dry skin) or 1 tsp curd (for oily skin). You can also add lemon if your skin is not so sensitive. Mix well into a thick paste. Adjust with curd/milk or add more powder. Apply a thick layer on your face. Wash off after 20 minutes. Use this face pack for one week continuously to see noticeable changes in your skin tone.
