What are Instant Glow Packs?

Instant glow packs are face packs that cleanse and condition your skin and this gives your skin an immediate glow. Store-bought instant glow packs generally contain a variety of chemicals which could irritate your skin with prolonged usage. However, you can make your own skin pack at home which would be a better option as the natural ingredients would nourish your skin and provide lasting results.


Choosing the Right Face Pack

It is important to use a face pack that suits your skin type Ė if you have dry skin and you use a face pack meant for oily skin it will only make your skin even drier. Similarly, if you have oily skin and you use a pack that is meant for dry skin, it will leave your skin oily. Remember, the best face pack for instant glowing skin is not the one that your friend recommended but rather the one that best suits your skin! Here are a few suggestions on how to get glowing skin instantly with just a few simple ingredients.

Before you use a face pack, you would need to cleanse your skin thoroughly as this will get rid of the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. Cleansing your skin will also increase the absorption of the face pack which will increase its benefits. Make a simple but effective cleanser with just oats, lemon juice and honey. First grind about half a handful of oats until it becomes a coarse and grainy flour. Add a teaspoon of honey to the oatmeal flour and then add enough lemon juice to make a thick paste. Finally, add water to the paste until its consistency is similar to yogurt. Apply the paste to your face and leave it on for two minutes before massaging it gently into your skin. Do not apply too much pressure as facial skin is very delicate and excessive pressure will result in tenderness and acne breakouts. Rinse your face with warm water and then dab it dry with a towel.

Choose Right Face Pack

You are now ready to move on to your instant glow face pack so here are a few homemade tips for glowing skin:

Instant Glow Pack for Oily Skin

To make a homemade face pack for oily skin, you will need Fullerís Earth or Kaolin clay, a sour lime and a few pieces of orange. Extract the juice from the sour lime and the orange so that you have about a tablespoon of each juice. Pour these juices into a small bowl and then add the Fullerís Earth or Kaolin clay to it. Mix it thoroughly until it is a smooth paste and apply it to your face. Allow the pack to dry before rinsing it off with warm water. Lemon juice and orange juice are both acidic by nature and they will break down excessive natural oils on your face. Fullerís Earth and Kaolin are very absorbent types of clay and they will draw out and absorb the oil from within the pores of your skin giving you a fresh glowing complexion.


Instant Glow Pack for Dry skin

To make this face pack, you will need a few almonds, a banana and a tomato. Blend one quarter of the banana with half a tomato (remove the juice and seeds first) and 5 to 6 almonds. Tomato juice is a mild acid and will help to exfoliate the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. Almonds contain oils and vitamins that moisturize the skin while bananas provide the skin with all the nourishment it requires. Leave this face pack on your skin until it dries and then rinse it off with cold water for smooth and supple skin.

Instant Glow Pack for Dry Skin

Instant Glow Pack for Scarred and Sensitive skin

To make this face pack, you will need an orange peel, yogurt, papaya, and gram flour. Blend a large piece of orange peel along with a small piece of papaya and a teaspoon of yogurt. Mix in the gram flour to form a slightly thick paste and then apply this to your face. The orange peel contains beta-carotene and volatile fats that will help to nourish your skin while yogurt is mildly acidic by nature which helps to breakdown dead skin cells. Papaya contains the enzyme papain which breaks down scarred skin tissue. This rejuvenation pack will nourish your skin and give you an instant glow.
