  BEAUTY SECRETS FROM THE KITCHEN - by Editor
Some more easy-to-implement body care tips. 
  

1.Watermelon juice clears the skin of all its blemishes leaving it fresh and lovely. Grate a watermelon, squeeze out the juice and apply it on your face for 15 minutes. Now wash it with hot water and then splash on cold water. 

2. Fenugreek leaves (methi) cure pimples, blackheads, dryness and early appearance of wrinkles. Make a paste of these leaves and apply it every night. Next morning, wash off with warm water. This improves your complexion. 

3. Tea leaves and lemon juice helps prevent hair fall. They also lead to soft and shiny hair. You need to boil the leaves in water and strain out the tea. Add a little lemon juice to this concoction and wash your hair with it. Rinse your hair thoroughly. 

4. Bengal gram flour (besan) mixed with curd can be applied daily on your face and hair! It will not only give you a glowing complexion, but also long and lustrous locks. 

5. Orange juice is great for an instant glow. All you need to do is dip your fingers in the juice and pat your cheeks, chin, neck and forehead. Wash off after ten minutes.   

Your kitchen shelf has been secretly storing all these beauty secrets for years. It is up to you to discover more. And when you do, don't forget to share them with us!

Comments:   A cure to have a fairer complexion, you can buy in a dermatological clinic some kojic acid (but it can be harsh for the skin, if applied too much) mix this kojic acid to some creams about 20% kojic acid only, You can have fairer skin in 1 week. Don't forget to apply large amount of sun block when going out because it will tend to make your skin darker when exposed under the sun. A remedy for pimple scars or scars, you can apply tomato pulp on your scar and leave for 10 mins. and rinse off. Do not use this if your skin is very sensitive.
