Curd and its effectiveness :
Sunburn is common in hit summers, we go for several sunscreen lotions but finally at the day’s end we find that our skin is affected. Instead of worrying or feeling bad, guys can make good use of curd. We can apply battered curd in our face and this gives a soothing feeing and brings back our skin complexion. But guys with oily skin should not go for this remedy.
Lemon Juice & Glycerine: Removing Tan and Fairness.
While curd works well to remove tan, it’s not a good option for facial skin that’s sensitive, oily or susceptible to acne. Curd, rather, all milk products contain bacteria that may aggravate the problem of acne if applied directly to the skin. So a better option for acne ridden skin is to apply lemon juice mixed with glycerine. The mixture should be strictly on a 50-50 basis. Add equal amounts of lemon juice and glycerine, apply it on the face and keep it for 15 -20 minutes, and then wash it off with cold water.
Lemon Juice : Hair Lightening
Lemon juice, because it is mildly acidic, works well in lightening the color of hair. So if you want to lighten your hair color, rinse it with a mixture of three quarter cups of water and one quarter of lemon juice. Works better than those hair coloring products.
Cucumber : Tired Eyes and Dark circles
Tired and puffy eyes make you look overworked and fatigued. So while a good long nap would be a great idea, one of the best possible quick fix solutions would be to place a slice of cucumber on each eye and relax for a 20 -25 minutes.
Tea bags: Puffy Eyes and Foot Deodorant
Another very effective way of making tired, sore eyes sparkle with energy is to soak a tea bag in lukewarm water for a few minutes and then place one on each eye. Leave them there for about 20 minutes.
If you suffer from the infamous stinky feet syndrome, boil four to five tea bags or about three teaspoons of tea leaves in a quart of water and wait for it cool down to room temperature. Then add some cold water to the solution and soak your feet for 30 minutes. Dry your feet and apply medicated foot powder. At the height of your foot problem, follow this procedure twice a day, and once the odor is cured, do it twice a week for prevention.
Yogurt, Gram flour and Turmeric : Improving complexion
For a smooth, clear and blemish free complexion, mix three spoonfuls of curd with a single spoon of Channa (gram) flour or besan and a small teaspoon ofhaldi (turmeric). Mix to make a thick, smooth paste. Apply evenly all over the face and leave it on for twenty minutes. Rinse it off with cold water.
Black Tea Bag: Lips
Soak a bag of black tea in warm water, and press it on your lips for about 10 minutes. You can repeat the procedure as many times as you want. Black tea’s high tannin content will make your lips taut and smooth.
Coriander Leaves : Lips
Massaging your lips with the juice of Coriander leaves (dhania) will makes your lips rosy and soft.
Grated Potatoes : Dark Circles
Potatoes contain catecholase, used as skin lighteners in cosmetics, and can also used to treat under eye circles. Grate a raw potato, squeeze the juice and apply it underneath the eyes. Leave it on for fifteen minutes and then rinse with cool water.
Instead of applying the chemicals in our skins it is prudent to make effective usage of the kitchen products. People are now trying to grab ayurvedic as an alternative option. Popularity of natural and ayurvedic treatment is uphill. So, without procrastination we can check out how effective the natural remedies are.
