You can even try homemade beauty enhancers for face care such as a mixture of honey and sugar. Using a scrub made of equal amounts of honey and corn flour, once a week is helpful to attain good skin. Pampering the skin after a shower with a combination of a couple of drops each of rose, lavender and almond oil can be a wonderful feeling as well as truly useful protection for the skin. A mixture of 4 table spoons of ripe papaya pulp, a squeeze of lemon juice and ½ tsp honey can be used as a refreshing cleanser.
