Top 3 Home Skin Care Tips
Facial Mist: A refreshing mist is just what your facial skin needs after being out in the Dubai heat. While an over the counter facial spray will cost you something between 20-25 Dirhams, you could make one at home for less than half the price. All of have to do is add half a vitamin C tablet in boiling water and stir till it dissolves. Then pour it into a glass container lined with lemon peel. Leave this concoction to stand for twenty four hours and decant into a spray bottle.
Body Scrub: A regular body scrub at the market could cost you anything between 60 to 180 Dirhams. You could easily replace them with one that is made at home and just as effective in whole body skin care.

Not only will this remove the dead skin from your body, it will also smoothen your skin, it will also help to get rid of cellulite.
