Laravel manual login function

I use manual login function in Laravel 5.5. Stuck in login. and check all(5 relevant ) Stack links and didn't find any clue on it.

Achievement is once user get registered, automatically sign in that user.

Error is

"Type error: Argument 1 passed to Illuminate\Auth\SessionGuard::login() must implement interface Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\Authenticatable, string given, called in Server/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Auth/AuthManager.php on line 294 ◀"

if ($validator->fails()) {

// $messages = $validator->messages();

return Redirect::to('register')

} else {

$email = Input::get('email');
$user = new user;
$user->name = Input::get('name');
$user->email = Input::get('email');
$user->password = Hash::make(Input::get('password'));

// $userMail = $user->find($email);
$userMail = User::where('email','=',$email)->first();
Auth::login($userMail->email, TRUE);

am i doing anything wrong. Please guide me.

Login function needs user of type Authenticatable and you just given email which is string thats why you get this error, Either use Auth::loginUsingId($id);

 $user = User::where('email','=',$email)->first();
 Auth::loginUsingId($user->id, TRUE);

Or just
