Topic #2 - Oily Skin Treatment

Today, both men and women face oily skin. Oily skin is a concern for many individuals who don't like the excessive shine on their face. If oily skin is left as is, it can cause acne. If your oily skin on your face bothers you, then try this method to control the shine using DIY remedies.

Method #1:

Rinse your face with lukewarm water and dry with a gentle face cloth. Take 1 egg white and whisk it until you see the "fluff" in it, then apply it all over your face. Avoid the eye area and lips. Let it dry for 15-20 minutes then wash it off. Make sure you use lukewarm water to rinse your face! Repeat this method twice a week for great results. This will help tighten the skin, even the skin tone and control the shine, and help reduce the blemishes.

Method #2:

  • 1/2 Fresh lemon squeezed to obtain the juice

Mix both ingredients until blended well. Wash the face with lukewarm water and dry. Apply the mask with a brush all over the face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse with water. This will help control the oil shine on the face. Start this routine twice a week. If skin feels irritated or dry then reduce the method to once a week.

Topic #3 - Dark Circles Treatment

Some individuals like to hide their dark circles without treating them, which is not a great idea. Makeup can only hide them and if not treated properly they can even get darker only than harder to treat them with natural remedies. There can be numerous causes of dark circles including, lack of sleep, poor diet habit, allergies, etc. If you would like to read a more detailed on the causes of dark circles then please refer to some articles on the right side.

Method #1

You will need I Tbls tomato juice, 1/2 Tsp lemon juice, to taste a measure of turmeric powder, to taste an amount of gram flour (Besan). Mix all these together to make a paste. Make sure you don't add water to thin the material as that will reduce the effect of the remedy. Leave it on for 10 minutes around the eyes (under the eyes) and rinse with lukewarm water. This will help lighten the dark circles under the eyes. This method may be repeated twice a week for great results.

Method #2

Another quick method is to apply almond oil around the eyes. Using a cotton ball, apply the oil overnight and rinse the eyes in the morning. You may do this every day or every other day. This will help reduce the dark circles overtime once used regularly.
