Skin Care Secrets

Did you know that there's a beauty parlour hiding in your kitchen?

Working women have it tough. In between rushing to work and back, juggling car pools, co-ordinating with baby sitters, cooking and house-keeping, they scarcely have time to take a deep breath. As far as visits to the beauty parlour are concerned, they are at the bottom of the priority ladder! But fear not, help is at hand.

Take a look around your kitchen shelf. You'll be surprised at what you find. Did you know that tomato and lime are excellent bleaching agents And this is just the tip of the 'ice' berg. Find out more as you read on.

1. Unboiled milk is an excellent cleanser.

Dip a piece of cotton wool in a little cold milk and rub it gently on your face. You will see a lot of dirt on the cotton. Keep cleaning your face in a circular upward movement until the cotton comes out completely clean.

2. Ice-cold water is an excellent astringent and skin freshener

and serves to close the pores that have opened while cleansing. It also tones the skin.

3. Cream or 'malai' is a very good moisturizer

and it needs to be applied to replace the oils that are lost while cleansing and toning. It will keep your skin supple and young.

4. Equal quantities of corn flour, jowar flour (atta) and cream (malai) can give you an instant facelift.

You need to make a paste and apply it on your face. Wash it off after it dries. While jowar atta will remove the dead cells, corn flour will tone up and tighten the skin and the cream will moisturize it.

5. Cabbage juice mixed with a little yeast and a tablespoon of honey is an excellent remedy for dry skin.

Leave a thick paste on your face for about 15 minutes for best results.

6. Lettuce juice mixed with an equal quantity of rose water and a few drops of limejuice is an excellent remedy for oily skin.

It should be applied for at least 30 minutes for best results.

Comments:   For pores on the face,keep washing your face with a mild soap atleast about 4 to 5 times a day. Also if u use any beauty "fairness" cream like fair and lovely etc, quit it immediatley.....only put sunscreen when u r moving out. Else avoid any type of cream on your face, u see it makes ur skin more oily. Follow this.
