1. Fuller’s earth
Fuller’s earth, also known as Multani mitti, is like a clay material, rich in aluminium silicate. It cleanses your skin and acts as a natural oil absorbent. It is chemical-free and has no side effects.
Multani mitti has ayurvedic Sita, Ruksa, and Ropan properties that keep your skin cool, dry, and heals. It is best for people having oily skin. Now, how can you apply it?
Add a cup of chamomile tea, 1 tbsp fuller’s earth, and 2 tsp honey and mix them well. Apply the paste to your face and neck and wash it with lukewarm water as soon as it dries. Also, you can apply a mix of 1 tbsp Multani mitti with some rose water and lemon juice and wash your face after 15 to 20 minutes. You can apply these packs twice a week to get glowing skin as it will tighten your pores, tone your skin, and prevent breakouts.
Honey moisturizes your skin, opens up the pores, and clears dirt and bacteria. You can mix honey with milk and apply it to your face or massage honey alone. After a few minutes, wash your face with lukewarm water, and you can apply it on alternative days to get glowing skin.
You can also apply a mix of saffron and honey as saffron is an ancient remedy to get naturally glowing skin. And the anti-microbial, hygroscopic and antioxidant properties of honey will keep your skin healthy and soft.
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric give glow and lustre to your skin. It may give you your natural glow by treating the uneven skin tone. Just mix 1 tsp each of honey and milk with 1/4 tsp turmeric and leave it on your face for 20 to 25 minutes and then wash it away.
Or apply a paste of 1 tsp honey, 4 tbsp gram flour, and some milk. Wash the pack as soon as it dries and repeat it twice a week to get glowing skin.
Tulsi and neem are the two most prominent ayurvedic medicinal leaves. Tulsi gives clear and bright skin, and neem clarifies pigmentations and blemishes as they have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. You can apply tulsi juice with milk or make a paste of four tulsi leaves, four neem leaves, and 1 tsp each of turmeric and yogurt. Wash your face after a few minutes and get the results in a week or so. Also, fenugreek leaves are good for maintaining skin radiance as they have antioxidant properties. You can crush the leaves and apply them to your skin.
Sandalwood has natural skin-lightening agents. To apply it, make a paste of 2 tbsp sandalwood powder and some rosewater. You can add some gram flour and a pinch of turmeric to it.
Apply it to your face and neck and wash it when it dries. And if you wish to use sandalwood oil instead of powder. Then add 2 to 3 drops of it to 1 tsp each of carrier oil and honey.
Liquorice or mulethi has antioxidants that soothe your skin, prevent and cure pigmentation. You need to add 1 tsp of liquorice powder to 2 tsp milk. Mix and apply the paste to your face as a pack and let it dry. Wash your face with water, and you must repeat it twice or thrice a week to get the results.
7. Aloe vera
Aloe vera gel is rich in Vitamin E, C, and beta carotene. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, which altogether help you get rid of blemishes and bring a glow to your face.

8. Lemon sugar
As you know, lemon is rich in Vitamin C and citric acid, which can help lighten and brighten up your skin. The Vitamin C in lemon neutralizes free radicals and boosts collagen production. And on the other hand, sugar works as an exfoliate on the skin and keeps your skin hydrated.
Apply the mixture of 2 tsp each of lemon and sugar and a few drops of honey. Use the scrub on the skin in a circular motion twice a week. After it dries, wash your face with lukewarm water. It will clean, bleach, and help remove dead skin resulting in glowing skin.

Cow ghee has omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that enhance the glow of your skin. Mix 1/2 tsp ghee and a few drops of water and let your skin absorb it for at least half an hour. You can also leave it on the skin overnight and then wash it.
Raw milk increases elasticity and brightens up your skin. It also enhances hydration and slows down the ageing process. Either apply milk directly on the skin or add 1 tsp each of honey and gram flour to 2 tsp milk.
The enzymes in ripe papaya have skin cleansing properties. It also helps in the removal of dead skin and gives glowy skin. To apply papaya to your skin, blend a few pieces of papaya with either sandalwood powder or fuller’s earth powder, and add 1 tsp honey to it. Apply the paste to your skin and wash away when it dries. You can apply it once every week.
11. Marigold Flower
You may find the marigold flower as an ingredient in ayurvedic face packs. It has polyphenols and other nutrients that reduce excessive oil production on the skin and maintain healthy skin.
Soak marigold flower petals in warm water for at least 10 minutes and apply the filtered water to the skin using cotton. You can also crush two of its petals with 1/2 tsp yoghurt, leave the paste on the skin for around 20 minutes, and then rinse off. It also acts as a natural toner and brings a glow to your skin.
