  2. Almond Oil
  3. Orange Juice
  4. Grated Potatoes
  5. Tea Bags
  6. Cucumber
  7. Mint Leaves
  8. Cold Milk

1. Tomatoes

What You Need

  • 1 teaspoon tomato juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

What You Need To Do

  1. Mix the tomato juice with lemon juice and apply this mixture on the affected area.
  2. Let it stay for 10 minutes, and wash off with cold water.

When You Need To Do This

Repeat twice a day, and follow it for about two to three weeks.

Why This Works

Tomatoes contain lycopene, which is a phytochemical that is beneficial for skin (1). Lycopene has also been found to protect the skin from damage.

2. Almond Oil

What You Need

  • A few drops of sweet almond oil 

Note: Almond oil comes in two types – bitter and sweet. Bitter almond oil is used in aromatherapy, and must not be used on skin or taken orally.

What You Need To Do

  1. Apply a little amount of almond oil on your dark circles and gently massage it into the skin.
  2. Leave it on overnight and wash it off the next morning.

When You Need To Do This

Do this every night, before going to bed, till you see the dark circles disappear.

Why This Works

Almonds are an extremely good source of vitamin E. The oil can be used as an emollient, as it has properties to make the skin soft and supple.

3. Orange Juice

What You Need

  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • A few drops of glycerin

What You Need To Do

  1. Mix the orange juice and glycerin, and apply this mixture on the dark circles.
  2. Let the mixture stay on for 10 minutes, after which you can wash it off with cold water.

When You Need To Do This

Do this every morning. You can repeat it thrice a week.

Why This Works

Orange is a rich source of vitamin C, a nutrient that is known to conceal dark coloration.

4. Grated Potatoes

What You Need

  • 1 raw potato

What You Need To Do

  1. Grate the raw potato and extract the juice from it.
  2. Soak two cotton balls in the juice.
  3. Place the cotton balls on the dark circles, ensuring that they cover the affected area entirely.
  4. Leave the cotton balls undisturbed for 10 minutes, and then remove and wash your eyes with cold water.

When You Need To Do This

Twice a day regularly for two to three weeks.

Why This Works  

Potatoes contain enzymes, starch, and vitamin C – all of which nourish the skin around the eyes and help treat dark circles.

5. Tea Bags

What You Need

  • 2 green tea bags

What You Need To Do

  1. Dip the tea bags in water and place them in the refrigerator for a while.
  2. Remove the tea bags from the fridge and place them over your eyes for about 15 minutes, after which you can wash your face.
  3. Your eyes will feel refreshed.

When You Need To Do This

Do this daily till you notice considerable improvement.

Why This Works

Dark circles are caused due to the dilation of blood vessels under the eyes. Green tea helps in reducing this dilation, thereby curing dark circles. Also, tea contains tannins that have astringent properties – they constrict the blood vessels and capillaries under the eyes, and help reduce dark circles .

6. Cucumber

What You Need

  • 1 fresh cucumber

What You Need To Do

  1. Cut the cucumber into thick slices and place them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  2. Take two slices out of the fridge and place each of them on the eyes, ensuring they completely cover the affected area.
  3. Leave them undisturbed for 10 minutes, and then wash your eyes with cold water.

When You Need To Do This

Twice a day for about a week.

Why This Works

Cucumber contains a number of antioxidants (like vitexin, orientin, and cucurbitacins) that help treat under eye dark circles.

HOW TO MAKE AN EGG WHITE & HONEY FACE MASK

Beat the ‘lurgy’ by giving your skin a healthy glow this week with our egg white & honey face mask.

With our skin and bodies prone to this season’s autumnal germs, we’re doing everything we can to help our skin fiend for itself, whilst holding onto that summer glow.

All you need to make this egg white & honey face mask is:
– One egg (egg white only)
– One tablespoon of honey

HOW TO:

Crack the egg white of an egg into a bowl and pour in a tablespoon of honey, before mixing together. Once both ingredients are combined, tie hair back and lather the face mask onto your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave the face mask on until it begins to tighten and then rinse away with water. Your pores should feel tightened and skin should be deeply cleansed.

Now we know that egg whites aren’t the most appealing ingredient to lather onto our faces, but do you know the benefits of them? Not only are they a great source of protein for our bodies, egg whites also help to tighten pores and prevent an accumulation of dirt, which causes blackheads and acne breakouts. By removing exces oil, they’re also proven to improve skin tone, especially dryness, leaving skin with a healthy, desirable glow.

The honey is also beneficial in a face mask, as it is a natural antibacterial that helps to sooth and moisturise skin, whilst softening the face for a smooth, flawless finish like no other cosmetic can do.

We adore indulging in face masks this time of year, especially this egg white & honey face mask, as it helps our skin to adapt to the seasonal changes. Which face masks do you like to pamper yourself with during the autumnal months?

Top 10 Ways To Grow Your Hair Healthy

C’mon! Confess it girls that the moment we see someone’s hair –healthy and lustrous, we go into a mini-depression and start cursing our genes, lifestyle and our ignorance towards the secrets of healthy hair. But have we ever stopped and thought what these natural ways are? Though we have read numerous books and heard it from our grandmothers, still we tend to turn a deaf ear to all that and desperately wait for a miracle product to be unveiled to turn our dull tresses into Rapunzel’s radiant locks overnight.

Natural Ways to Grow Hair

Don’t despair! Read the following for 10 ways on how to get healthy hair. Follow them religiously to see what wonders they do to your hair.

1. Diet:

fish and vegetables

You all must be familiar with the saying “You reap what you sow”. And this very much applies to your hair too. Foods rich in following are a boon for your hair, they are one of the perfect ways to grow hair faster.

Vitamin B12:  poultry, meat, fish and dairy products.
Vitamin E: cereals, nuts, tomato, spinach, pumpkin, broccoli, fish, mango and papaya.
Copper: wheat bran, whole meat, crabs, oysters, lamb, black pepper, prawns, apple, chicken    liver, processed cheese, beans and mushrooms.
Zinc: oysters, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, mutton, peanuts and legumes.
Biotin: brown rice, green peas, egg yolk, oats, cheese and soy beans.
Iron: beets, soy beans, spinach ,lentils , almonds and chicken.
Proteins: eggs, milk , fish, chicken and tofu.

2. Massage:

beauty

Head massage stimulates blood circulation in the scalp and hence gives a wake-up call to the hair to grow. A dry massage can lead to hair breakage, therefore warm oil massage with oils like almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil or castor oil can be used. Oils also tend to condition hair which results in soft and shiny mane.

3. Heat protection:

Use heat styling tools such as the blow dryer, hair iron, curling rod as infrequently as possible. And before using them, please do use a good hair protecting spray. Also, wear a scarf, hat or take an umbrella with you while stepping out in the sun to prevent damage from the UV rays.

4. Right shampoo:

Always use a shampoo according to your hair type and not because it is the talk of the town. Even if your scalp is oily, don’t wash it every day. Doing this strips the hair of it’s natural oils and offers you healthy hair.

5. Chlorine protection:

Don’t forget to wear a good quality swimming cap before entering inside the pool, since the chlorine in the water damages your hair. As soon as you step out of the pool, wash your hair immediately.

6. Combing :

Natural hair comb twists

Don’t believe in the adage “Brush your hair 100 times for healthy, shiny hair”. It just causes breakage and dries out hair. Never make the mistake of using a comb on wet hair, not even in the shower to spread the conditioner.

7. Trimming :

Ideally, you should trim hair once in 6-8 weeks or else you’ll end up with dry/unhealthy hair tips. When you get rid of the split ends, there will be no need to pay for them in long run. This is an essential way to grow hair faster.

8. Colouring :

It doesn’t matter whether you colour your hair naturally or with chemical laden colours, it’s definitely going to damage your hair. So you have to take special care for chemically or naturally treated hair. Use shampoos containing cocobetyl diamine for that extra care.

9. Conditioning :

Conditioning your hair should also be done according to the hair type. Oily hair requires a very mild conditioner while dry hair requires a rich or live-in conditioner. And the treated hair requires a conditioner containing coco betamine.

10. Water :

Don’t ever make the mistake of using hot water for your scalp. Wash your with luke warm water if required but make it a strict rule to rinse it finally with cold water to close the hair follicles.

It is very important to follow these ways to keep hair healthy. In reality, natural ways will only help you grow your hair thicker & beautiful than conventional chemical products.

How to Sweat Less

Sweating is an indication that the body is putting all the organs to task to keep you right. But if you find yourself in a pool of sweat then that extra sweat might become a matter of concern. While you’re busy googling for tips on how to sweat less here’s an easy one:

If your leaving behind foot prints on the floor this is no pride. You need to consider ways to sweat less on your feet to avoid those comments and giggles. Here’s a herbal remedy to help you. Add some fresh rosemary mint leaves in a liter of boiling water. Cool it to a warm temperature and discard the leaves. Add the juice of 2 lemons and stir it well before you bath your feet using this liquid. Now walk with pride while your feet breath fresh all day long.

  1. It is often said that what you eat is what you are. If you were to believe in this fact make some changes to your diet to include foods rich in silicon which helps in regulating sweat production. Almonds, grapes, strawberries etc are said to be packed with this essential mineral.
  2. Another supplement which needs to be on your diet is that of zinc. In order to make your sweat glands work less, gulp in a glass of milk with a zinc supplement and feel the difference. However, remember to check with your doctor before you pick up a supplement to make sure it does not have any side effects.
  3. A glass of lemonade helping you to beat the heat inside it helps you perspire less. If you don’t wish to drink them opt for a topical application by simply rubbing a fresh lime ( fresh one preferred over a already cut) and gently rub on the areas prone to sweat to make you sweat less and stay in comfort.
  4. If your one of those who bath in a hurry on account of over sleep or over work investing a little bit of your time can be helpful to drive away your sweaty issues. After your bath pat yourself dry and massage yourself with apple cider vinegar to stay away from the stink of your sweat.
  5. If you’re a victim of nervous sweating, then apart from becoming more confident another useful tip is to avoid coffee just before that important event. If you think a sip of this beverage can raise your spirits let me tell you coffee is a lesser known double edged sword . Both the sugar and caffeine content make your sip sinful making you sweat more. They stir up anxiety and increase your heart beat to make you feel nervous.
  6. Apart from giving you momentary pleasure, know the fact that your cigarette does NO good to you or the people around you ( who innocently continue to be passive victims of your smoke).

You might be under the misconception that smoking calms your nerves but the fact is that this comfort rises your body temperature by way of enlarging blood capillaries. While doing so your body puts in more effort and so obviously sweats. So the next time you take that puff know what’s happening inside you and cut down on the pack if you can’t avoid it completely.

MAKE-UP TIPS TO LOOK YOUNGER

You know that you are beautiful no matter your age. With this article I just want to show you how, with make-up, you can keep the brightness your skin has when you are 20, even when you are in your 40’s.
As the time passes, the skin begins to dry and to thin, so the make-up products you used when you were 20, will not advantage you when you are 40.

With these tips you will be able to make your skin look fresh and young again.

1. Primer – it is important to apply primer before any make-up products, in order to hide any imperfections, to uniform your complexion and to fill the finely wrinkles. Apply the primer after you have applied a moisturized cream.
Keep in mind – the first product you need to use when it comes to make-up is the primer, which stands as a base for any make-up product!

2. Foundation cream – choose to use a liquid foundation. Why? Because the powder foundation loads your skin and adds a few years to your look. So is better you sue a liquid foundation because it will moisturize your skin and you will have a fresh and healthy look. Choose to apply it with a brush or a sponge, instead of your fingers.

3. Avoid using tacky colors for eye shadows – fist of all beauty is elegance. Even though you may feel tempted to use bright colors, after a certain age is better to focus on the elegance. Try using neutral and delicate colors for a natural look. You can choose to play with some shadows to add a little mystery.
Remember: never use the same color for your eye shadow as the color you choose to wear!

4. Give shape to your eyebrows – the way our eyebrows look is very important, because they have an important role in how are face looks like. The key in looking fresh and young is to always have freshly plucked and groomedeyebrows.  Because over the year they tend to thin and whiten you should always have an eyebrow pencil in your beauty kit. Or you could choose to dye them. Either you choose to dye them or to use a pencil. you should use a color very natural and really close to your hair color.

5. Choose wisely your lipstick – if you choose a wrong lipstick or you apply it incorrectly, all people will see are the wrinkles around your mouth. To be sure your lipstick will not spread where it shouldn’t, before you apply it, use some moisturizing cream and then cover your lips with a thin layer of foundation. Be careful what color you use and choose to stay away from tacky ones.

These are the most important and basic 5 things when it comes to a correct make-up. A make-up that will emphasize only your strong figures and cover the ones you want to be covered. Well, this is the reason make-up was invented

I hope you find this helpful and will apply them in order to stay young and beautiful forever!

How to Get Rid of a Canker Sore

Canker sores are one of the most common inflammatory conditions of the mouth, affecting about 20 percent of the general population. Anyone can develop a canker sore; however, women are more likely than men to get them. Canker sores are not contagious and should not be confused with cold sores or fever blisters.

The exact cause of canker sores is not yet known. Some factors that can trigger canker sores are anoral injury, weak immune system, hormonal changes in the body, too much stress, excessive smoking, hereditary factors, certain drugs, anemia, using the wrong oral care products, food allergies and viral infections.

Most canker sores do not require treatment, as they will usually disappear in seven to 10 days. However, you can try some natural remedies to reduce the pain and inflammation and to speed up the healing process.

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is an effective natural remedy for canker sores. It has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and curative properties that help ease the pain and inflammation as well as speed up the healing process.

  • Extract the gel from a fresh aloe vera leaf and apply it directly on the canker sore. Do this several times a day.
  • Alternatively, you can rinse your mouth with fresh aloe vera juice about three or four times a day.
  • You can also take at least two tablespoons of aloe vera gel three times a day for quick results.

Note: If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can buy the gel or juice from the market.

2. Coriander

Coriander is one of the best ingredients for treating a canker sore. It contains anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal properties that can effectively help reduce the pain and discomfort associated with canker sores.

  • Boil a handful of coriander leaves in a glass of water. Strain the solution and allow the water to cool. Gargle with the lukewarm water at least three or four times a day.
  • Boil one cup of water and add one teaspoon of coriander seeds to it. Allow it to sit for some time and then strain it. Rinse your mouth with it three or four times a day.
  • You can also drink the juice from fresh coriander leaves several times a day. Instead of drinking the juice all at once, keep it in your mouth for some time so that the juice can do its magic on the affected area.

3. Honey

Honey is an extremely soothing substance and has antiseptic as well as antibacterial properties   .

  • Apply one teaspoon of honey carefully all around the canker sore. It will hurt for a few minutes, but it will then ease the pain and inflammation. Do this several times a day.
  • Mix one teaspoon of honey and one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric powder to make a fine paste. Apply the paste on the affected area and leave it on for a few minutes. Rinse your mouth well with lukewarm water. Repeat the process twice daily.

4. Salt

Salt will help draw the fluid from a canker sore and also speed up the healing process.

  1. Mix one teaspoon of salt in one cup of lukewarm water and stir it well.
  2. Use the solution to rinse your mouth. Swish the solution around for at least 30 seconds and then spit it out. This will help disinfect your mouth.
  3. After completing your rinse, put a pinch of salt directly on the canker sore. It will cause some pain, but it will help a lot in the healing process.
  4. Repeat the process four or five times a day.

5. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another very effective ingredient that can be used to treat canker sores. It can help neutralize the acidity and soothe the pain and inflammation.

  • Add a little water to one teaspoon of baking soda to make a paste. Apply the paste to the affected area using your fingers or a cotton ball. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse your mouth with lukewarm water. Do this three or four times a day.
  • Alternatively, you can mix two teaspoons of baking soda in a glass of warm water and use it to rinse your mouth. Follow this simple remedy four or five times a day.

6. Sage

You can also use the herb sage to effectively treat canker sores at home. The calming property of sage gives instant relief from the pain and inflammation.

  • Add three teaspoons of sage leaves to two cups of boiling water. Allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Let the solution cool to room temperature and then use it to rinse your mouth. Do this three or four times a day.
  • Another option is to apply powdered sage leaves directly on the canker sore and leave it on for a few minutes. Repeat this several times a day to get rid of the sore.

7. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that work as effective skin disinfectants to help cure canker sores.

  • Add 10 drops of tea tree oil to a glass of water. Use the solution as a mouthwash to rinse your mouth. Do this three or four times a day.
  • Alternatively, dilute two drops of tea tree oil in one-half tablespoon of water and apply it directly on the canker sore. Do this two or three times a day.

8. Cayenne Pepper

cayenne pepper
