A face that is clear, glowing and radiant signifies both beauty and good health. There are a number of easily accessible, natural ingredients which can be used to gently clean and moisturise the sensitive skin on your face.

Skin Problems

Your face can be plagued by a number of problems, including dry, flaky skin, or oily, acne prone-skin. Using washes and moisturisers to help combat these problems is helpful in creating a glowing, clear complexion.


Turmeric, an exotic spice, has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities which make it a good choice for soothing inflamed skin and creating a healthy glow. Indian brides have traditionally incorporated the use of turmeric to achieve radiant skin by either rubbing the dry spice over their skin and washing it off, or creating a facial wash with milk and turmeric.


Honey has been used for many years in skin care regimens because of the abundance of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, and natural moisturising properties, which are beneficial to facial skin. Honey also has natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which encourage clear, hydrated skin.


Lemon is found in many facial treatment recipes because of its ability to brighten skin and counteract acne breakouts. According to Dr. Randall Neustaedter, OMD, who practices in homeopathic and oriental medicine in Redwood City, CA, acne can be treated with lemon juice which can be applied directly to the face with a cotton ball, allowed to sit for ten minutes, and then rinsed away with warm water.

Facial Treatments

Many washes and masks can be made using these natural ingredients. Combine honey, lemon juice and a bit of vegetable oil into a paste and apply for ten minutes. Wash away with warm water to hydrate dry skin. A combination of milk and turmeric can be applied to the skin, left on for 10 to 20 minutes, and then washed away, to help lighten and even out skin tone.
