What’s the first thing you visualize when you think about glowing skin? For us, it is skin that blooms and blossoms as bright as a summer’s day, and that is such a beautiful sight. (Of course, while your skin might not get quite as bright as that, one can only hope, right?) Since glowing skin can translate into a more youthful, beautiful appearance, we should all aspire to improve our skin’s natural glow as soon as possible. We don’t have to tolerate dull, lackluster skin when we have the power of natural ingredients on our side. Specifically, we’re talking about saffron and aloe vera.

In this article, you will learn how to make 3 saffron and aloe vera home remedies to get glowing, even skin quickly. Both of these natural ingredients contain nutrients and minerals that can make your skin look simply stunning. If your skin has been looking dull or pale for quite some time, utilizing any of the remedies found here may be just what you have been looking for.

1. Saffron Dab-On to Boost Skin Glow Quickly

Saffron is notorious for how expensive it is (in some areas of the world, it costs up to $10 USD per gram), but you shouldn’t let that discourage you from using this spice on your skin, especially if you already have some in your spice cabinet. If you use saffron on a regular basis in your cooking, rest assured that you will not have to use it all for one home remedy. You only need a few strands of saffron to get the most out of it. That’s because every strand of saffron is packed with powerful antioxidants (such as crocin, crocetin, and safranal) which help amp up your skin glow and mitigate free radical damage. Since free radicals can cause skin issues like dullness and discoloration, saffron may be just what you need if you want to get glowing, even skin quickly.

Like saffron, aloe vera has been used for thousands of years for beauty care, and we now know that it is because it is rich in various nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and plant hormones. Together, these compounds can greatly reduce inflammation and eliminate dry skin. Many people don’t know this, but dryness may be a big reason why your skin looks duller than normal. Since aloe vera does a very good job of nourishing and moisturizing your skin, you can use this natural ingredient to get plump, dewy, glowing, and even skin.

3. Saffron, Aloe Vera & Rosewater Mask for Tight, Glowing Skin - Face Tightening Mask

Using either saffron or aloe vera to get stunning skin is a fine choice. However, if you’re wondering whether or not you can combine them into one remedy, the answer is yes you can! You can also add other natural ingredients to saffron and aloe vera in order to get amazing results. For instance, rosewater is another natural ingredient that helps freshen up your skin and brighten it up in the process. Rosewater is capable of soothing your skin and reducing redness due to the fact that it is anti-inflammatory and it contains antioxidants. Plus, rosewater has antibacterial and astringent properties so it cleans your pores and helps tighten them. As a result, your skin may look more glowing and even after using saffron, aloe vera, and rosewater together.


6 strands of saffron

2 tbsp. of rosewater

1 tbsp. of fuller’s earth [Multani mitti] or bentonite clay

Aloe juice, as needed


Place the saffron and rosewater in a bowl. Let the saffron sit in the rosewater until it loses its color. This will take about 10 to 15 minutes.

Then, add and mix the clay of your choice to the mixture as well as enough aloe juice until you get a thick paste.

Apply the mask on your face and leave it on for 12 to 15 minutes.

Wash the mask off with warm water. Afterward, use your daily skin care routine.

Use 1 to 2 times a week.


When applying the mask, you can put some of it on your neck as well. However, try not to get the mask too close to your eye area because it is a very delicate area.
