Your beautiful younger looking fair skin is a result of your skincare routine and healthy habits. Though we all want flawless brighter-looking skin, only a few can have healthier skin. The reason is your skin speaks for your lifestyle and eating habits. But a significant misconception is that we need to have expensive beauty products to shine out in a crowd. Do you also believe in this?
Though commercial products look promising for skincare, I have some questions regarding commercial skincare products. Do you read all ingredients individually and check out whether they will keep your skin hydrated and give you fair skin in the long run? Also, do you feel that high-quality skincare products are budget-friendly?
In my opinion, we must adopt a good skincare routine for fair skin. Indeed, we can have beautiful, ageless skin at home with simple home remedies. Both men and women equally want to have fair and bright looking skin, but sometimes it is not possible due to strict work and study routine. So, we have saved your time and list down all the useful tips and advice for the best skincare routine for men.
What is Fair Skin?
Firstly, let me explain that what is fair skin? By Fair skin, we mean the brighter tone of all skin complexions. Indeed, it is a sign of health and beauty. Hence, we must put our skin’s best care and get rid of dry, patchy, and blemished skin. On the other hand, a nasty rash, bad pores, and lousy complexion signify poor health and lack of skincare. Finally, we have two goals here. First, how to get rid of bad skin? Bad skin means rash, pores, acne, dry and dull skin. Secondly, our second goal is to have spotless and fair skin.
Why Do We Need to Lighten up Our Skin?
It is important to note that our skin is the largest organ of our body. It forms new cells in 21 days. Due to the formation of new cells, old skin becomes dull. For this reason, we need to exfoliate our skin from time to time to get rid of dead skin cells. Most of the people use specific night creams which exfoliate skin and make them look pretty face. But the same results can happen without using expensive night creams.

2- Tomato and sugar
As I have mentioned earlier that exfoliation is a must for your skin after every 2, 3 days. Hence this second remedy is for those who have sensitive skin. Therefore, you must try this for smooth, bright, and fair skin. In this remedy, we will use tomatoes. The antioxidants of tomatoes will absorb into the skin to give you radiant skin.
- Take a tomato and cut it into two pieces. I prefer to keep it in the freezer for 15-30 minutes.
- Then spread one tbsp of granulated sugar on the half piece and scrub your face gently.
- Apply in a circular motion for a maximum of 5 minutes.

- Do apply moisturizer afterward.

After applying, you will notice an instant radiance on the face that makes you look fair.

Together potato and cucumber juice will replenish your skin and soothe the redness, puffiness, and itching of the face. Honey is well known for the treatment of scars, uneven skin, and acne. Above all, you can expect to have transparent and shiny skin after this treatment.
5- Gram Flour, Honey, and Milk Mask
Our next remedy is once a week remedy, which has always worked for me. I never bleached my face. Even so, people often ask me the secret of glowing skin. Finally, I will reveal the truth today that I have always applied gram flour to my skin. My family’s best and oldest remedy is gram flour, honey, aloe, and lemon mask.

Moreover, we never get any acne issues at all. I would highly recommend using this once a week. Hopefully, you like my post and will apply some of the masks and cherish your fair skin.
