Try these simple home beauty treatments for sporting a gorgeous look:

*Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water everyday. This will hydrate your skin and flush out the toxins from the body.
*Try this simple facial routine that you can follow at home:
1.Steam your face for 2-3 minutes. Wipe off the dirt from your face with a damp cotton ball, preferably dipped in milk, as milk acts as natural cleanser.
2.Now rub a cube of ice over your face to close the pores.
3.You can either use a ready made face pack or make one at home that suits your skin(you can choose any one from those mentioned below).
4.Wash off the face pack after 10-15 minutes and apply rosewater for toning up your skin.
*Easy to make face packs at home:
1.For normal skin: Mash up a ripe banana and add honey to make a pulp. Leave it on face for 5-8 minutes and wash off with normal water.
