2. Chamomile Tea Toner:
Boil about 100 milliliter of water and add one chamomile tea bag in the boiling water and let it extract the color of the tea for at least five minutes. Let it cool down and then apply this tea soaked water on your face and neck with a cotton ball. Leave it for about 20 minutes and wash it off with tap water.

Honey is a natural anti-oxidant which gives skin a radiant glow. Milk has natural skin bleaching properties. Egg white tightens the skin and removes wrinkles.
