5 DIY Ways To Make Your Face Glow Overnight

To make your skin glow, you need to lead an active and healthy life that includes eating healthy food, following a correct sleeping pattern, exercising, and maintaining a CTM routine. But it will take some time in giving results.

Another way to make your skin glow is to get a DIY skin treatment that can give instant results. Here’re 5 skin treatment options that you can get at home.

  1. Rice And Sesame Body Scrub

It is a DIY scrub that you can make at home and use. Since all the ingredients of this scrub are available in your kitchen, you won’t have any hassle in preparing the scrub. Also, you won’t buy commercial scrubs after using homemade rice and sesame body scrub.

Rice And Sesame Body Scrub


The ingredients are for one-time use as the scrub can’t be stored. It has to be made fresh.

• 3 tsp of unroasted white sesame
• 3 tsp of any variety of white rice

Making the scrub:

Mix the ingredients in a bowl and clean them under running water. After cleaning them of impurities, soak them well in water. Fill the water up to the height of the ingredients and leave them for 7-8 hours. Drain the remaining water and grind the sesame seeds and rice into a slightly coarse paste for application. Don’t leave the rice granules coarse as they can cause skin abrasions while using the scrub.

Scrub your skin:

• The scrub is now ready for application but you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to give it a fragrance. But it is optional.

• Wet your skin properly and start applying the paste all over your body.

• Massage your skin gently in circular movements to boost blood circulation and deep nourishment of the skin.

• Slightly coarse rice granules will exfoliate the dead skin cells and sesame oil will moisturize the skin.

• It is a good winter scrub for all skin types but the presence of sesame oil could cause problems for people with sensitive skin in other seasons.

  1. Sleeping Packs

Sleeping packs are good for skincare as the ingredients are set more deeply as you sleep. Also, they work both as a barrier and sealant. The light coating of a mask will prevent the pollutants from setting in your skin while locking the pores to prevent the goodness of your skin from evaporating.

Sleeping Packs

Depending on the selection of a sleeping mask, its ingredients could do many things from keeping your skin hydrated to repairing the damaged tissues and rejuvenating the skin cells. Also, sleeping masks provide anti-aging treatment.

Wearing sleeping masks:

• First, prepare your skin for wearing the mask. Wash it clean with a mild face wash and rinse with lukewarm water.

• Check whether there are any traces of makeup on your face and remove those tiny particles from the skin before wearing the mask.

• When the face is clean, pat dry your skin to get ready for the treatment.

• You will need less than 1 tsp of your face mask cream to cover your face. Squeeze the lotion from the face mask pack and start massaging your skin with upward strokes.

• The upward movement will improve the blood circulation and allow the nutrients to set deep inside the skin.

• Also, the cream will get enough time to work on your skin. Similarly, your skin will get time to soak the nutrients available in the face pack.

• The next morning, clean your face with a mild cleanser and rinse with lukewarm water to get glowing skin.

  1. Milk

Milk has many benefits for your skin as it contains vital nutrients including essential vitamins. Also, you can use it in different ways.

b) Face cleanser

Raw milk is a good cleanser as it can easily remove all impurities including dead skin cells, oil, and dirt from your face in a natural way.

  1. Eyes
