A good, healthy skin is enough to make a person beautiful (and obviously, a good mind is also very essential). Having a good skin not only saves time by cutting time spent on concealing dull skin also instills confidence.

Lack of sleep, long working hours, and frequent tours can all cause sallow, paling skin. Here are quick, simple tips to get rid of the sallowness and sport glowing skin, without taking up much of your time.

Honey jars
Honey works perfectly on the skin and delivers a good shine to it. It is a good hydrating solution which removes tan. Take a jar half filled with honey and pour lemon juice into it. Make sure that the consistency remains thick enough.

Lemon kills bacteria that causes pigmentation and dullness. Apply this mixture on your face before going to bed every night. Keep it on for 30 minutes. This jar recipe is suitable for both, dry as well as oily skin types.

Vitamin C infusion
Vitamin C, an antioxidant, helps mitigate scarring and damage caused due to sun rays. It is a good nutritional element for your skin. Hence, generously apply a vitamin C serum daily. Massage it with the tips of your fingers gently for a minute. Serums are generally easily absorbed into the skin, giving a beautiful glow.

Choosing the right sunscreen
The skin extracts its dullness mainly from the sun. Hence cover your skin with a good shield. Your sunscreen pF should be at least 30. You could apply this over the Vitamin C serum. A higher pF value is suitable when you’re in extremely hot climates. Also, pick up a sunscreen that is best for your skin type- dry, oily, acne-prone.

Milk pouch mask
This is a funny, yet effective way to bring a natural glow onto your face. After pouring out milk from the milk pouches, don’t discard the pouches yet. Upturn them and place them on your face. Wear them like a mask.
Now massage your fingers in a circular motion on the mask. The milk that is stuck to the bag is raw, and raw milk exfoliates your skin. As a result, dead skin is removed and the skin appears fresh.

Diet
You’re made up of what you eat. Hence, eating the right food determines the way your skin look. Firstly, to sport a glowing skin; eat fresh, good quality vegetable and fruits. The dried ones wouldn’t help undo the dryness in your skin.

Dry fruits, fresh fruits are a better pick than fries and chips. Green tea instead of coffee is another healthier pick. Ensure that you are including grains in your diet as these provide the body with the required carbohydrates.

Getting rid of the cigarettes
Turning your body smoke-free helps in smoother blood flow. Nicotine-filled veins make your skin look tattered and dull. Also, smoking cuts down appetite, and a lack of good diet again affects your skin negatively.

So try to quit smoking, instead opt for smoked cheese! Well, on a serious note if quitting is tough opt for healthier alternatives like E-cigarettes.

One of the quickest and most effective ways to reduce sallowness is to splash water on your face as you wake up, and to drink good amount of water daily. The cold temperature constricts blood vessels, which helps the skin look smoother.

Also remove make up off your face before hitting the bed. It’s not a TV show you’re in!
