Beauty tips from a reader

beauty tipsThe following beauty tips from my mother helped discover a new ‘me’!

For glossy clean hair:

Take 1 cup of warmed beer. Add 2 tsp lime juice. Separate your hair into 4 parts. Soak with the ‘beer’ mixture. Wash after 10 minutes with ground shikakai pods/Shikakai Powder.

For dark eye-bags:

In order to lighten eye bags, follow this method. Take 4 cucumber slices. Add 2 tbsp thick cream. Mash into pulp. Apply on eye bags. Wash with cold water after 15 minutes.

For a quick, instant face cleanser:

Mix 2 tsp turmeric powder, ½ tsp honey, 2 tsp curd. Apply on face. Rub in upward direction for 5 minutes. Wash with a mild soap.

For clean ankles and legs:

After washing with soap, use a pumice stone to scrub off the dead cells. Afterwards apply Johnson’s baby lotion.

For dark elbows:

Mix together 1 tsp boric acid powder + 2 tbsp lemon juice. Apply. Wash after 10 minutes.

    For the swollen eyes, put some Hemorrhoid cream (not ointment) under your eyes. That is what the models do.

    A natural way is to rub fresh lemon juice on the areas and keep it on for 15 minutes. Then wash it off. You can moisturize those certain areas after the treatments. If none of that works for you, ask your doctor or contact a skin specialist for help.

    Thanks again for this informative post.
    It’s good to know certain things even if not in need at the moment. Sometimes hair damages so quickly.. using gel and hair colors.

    Don’t neglect certain areas of the skin. Elbows, heels, neck, and d├ęcolletage need moisturizing, and your scalp and the tops of your feet need sun protection.

    Dark lips: If your black lips have been caused by drinking too much tea, coffee or by smoking, you will need to cut it down. Apply Vaseline with a few drops of lemon juice to your lips regularly at night. This keeps lips moisturized. In the morning, rub your lips with a toothbrush to remove dead skin.

    Apply a paste of ground drumstick pods and leaves mixed with fresh lime juice on the face. Rub gently and let it stay on for 10 - 15 minutes at a time.
    Continue daily once in the morning for 7-10 days and you will find pimples and black heads and black spots slowly but surely vanish.
    You will be pleasantly surprised to find clear smooth beautiful skin that glows and makes you look years younger.
