Lets begin with ever worried sect of people first, ones who have sensitive, oily, acne prone blemished prone skin. Dear people, the only thing you have to grab and stick to from your kitchen is BESAN,i.e, Gram flour or Garbanzo bean flour or Chickpea flour. I mean stick to it religiously!(PULL your hair away from face before you start).
You can use Gram flour or Garbanzo bean flour or Chickpea flour with some turmeric powder and water(only) if your have very sensitive skin.Wash your face every 6 hours with this extremely mild, natural,yet deep-cleansing paste.Apply the paste ( thick and only 1 teaspoon full in quantity)on your face, massage gently for about 2 minutes,then wash off with cold water.
When you skins improves a bit you can level up by adding some drops of lemon juice. it will help you get rid of blemishes, black heads, white heads, reoccurring acne, tanned skin and what not!
In case you are interested in oil cleaning, “CASTOR oil” is your biggest rescuer, for very oily skin you should mix equal amount of castor oil and olive oil(I would recommend olive oil over any other oil as it did wonders for me)and remember like dissolves like, so this mixture will dissolve all hardened oil and grime in your pores and as castor oil is naturally astringent in nature is it amazing for sensitive, acne prone,oily and blemished skin.
For cleansing with oil mixture you have to pour a quarter size amount of oil blend into your hand and massage into your skin on your face(you don’t need to wet your skin first). Gently massage using smooth circular strokes for about 2 minutes or until the oil saturates your skin.This is an effective way for removing makeup too.You can leave it on your skin for up-to 10 minutes to really deep clean pores.
The Second most wretched souls are the ones, combating dry-flaky-irritated-parched skin. Befriend your skin with “OLIVE OIL” add some HONEY to make it sweeter.
Yes you got it right. Mix equal amount of Olive oil and Honey apply on your skin on your neck and face, you can use it all over your body. Massage and leave it on for at least 10 minutes. Wash off with cold water. Trust me in few weeks you’ll fall in love with the formula.Stick to it don’t get tempted to use other products along with it.
People Blessed with normal skin type can stick to milk. Take cold(not very cold) FULL-CREAM(not skimmed) milk apply it on your face and neck with cotton let it sit for some 5 to 10 minutes and then wash off with plain water.That’s all, milk has lactic acid to clean your skin, and it can keep you moisturized all day.
Black & white heads : are the most embracing things on the planet to live with!
Baking soda can be a lifesaver. I know its unbelievable but yes, it is a saviour!
Make a thick paste of baking soda with water only(do not use lemon juice, it will irritate your skin)apply on affected areas like, nose & chin. Let the paste sit for some 5 to 10 minutes then gently massage to scrub off with cold water. Do it twice a week.
We all want to have Rosy Pink Lips, but sometimes harsh cosmetics ruin them.And even if you are born with dark lips, saffron strands (the original ones!!)can help you achieve what you want. Soak saffron strands in milk (take enough strands and soak in one tea spoon milk) for not less than 6 hours and then apply this beautiful orange elixir on your lips at night. Leave it over night. Do it everyday until you wake up to your wish.
