Skin Is the Mirror of Your Health

You need to take care of your skin in a regular manner to keep it smooth and shining. In the modern city life, you are very busy with your tight schedule of appointments and other engagements and do not find enough time for skin care, which is common with everyone. You should make some time available to look after the skin in a routine manner and hence, take certain suitable steps. You need to have a fair knowledge about the requirements of a healthy skin so that you are able to provide the same to your lovely skin.

(1)Oily Skin. This type of skin requires additional care to keep it clean and free from dirt and dust that gathers during outings. The use of a cleanser is carefully selected to avoid the skin becoming dry. The home-made cleanser is a better alternative at this point. Make a combination of fresh lemon juice, paste of Neem leaves with a base material like Multani Mitti, the Fuller’s earth, known to be a superb cleansing material. The mixture is more acceptable in cold climates and enhances blood circulation. Apply the mixture on face and let it stay there for nearly half an hour. It is washed with cold water thoroughly.

Use an oil-control toner to reduce the oily texture of the skin. You can also use a revitalizing toner liquid. It should be known that the oily skin produces problems related to pigmentation of the skin and therefore, you should always use a sunscreen lotion before you go out in the sun.  You can make a sunscreen lotion right in your home with olive oil, bee wax and zinc oxide.

(2)Ordinary skin needs quality moisturizing applications to keep it soft and glowing. Give special attention to certain areas of the body such as elbows, knees and toes. Use the home-made sunscreen lotion and take the bath 2 times a day by mixing essential oils in the water.

(3)Dry skin needs additional support of moisturizer to keep it properly hydrated to maintain the suppleness. Prepare a home-made application with milk powder, honey and almond oil. Use it on your face and leave it for 10 minutes to be washed by lukewarm water. It helps hold the moisture of the skin in a natural way. Use a home-made scrub to be used during the bath. It is made with 2tbs of oats, Aloe Vera, 2tsf brown sugar, 1tsf fresh lemon juice in a paste form. Apply the paste all over the body and give a gentle rub. Use tepid water for cleaning it out. You should give adequate moisturizing support to the skin to rejuvenate it for true display of glamour.
