Steps to have a healthy skin - Skin Care Beauty Tips

The largest organ in a human body is the skin. Comes as a surprise – Uh? It is! So, here are the common factors that can cause skin damage. A woman at any age wants to look glamorous and why not? Eye candies are every body's treat, so let's treat them.

Sun: That is where we are under every single day. A lovely day and we want to be out enjoying the beauty Mother Nature gives us. But doctors believe that the sun can damage skin because of the ultraviolet rays. The sun can break down collagen and elastin, the two skin components which keep the skin looking tight and plump. The sun can also affect the melanocytes which could cause patches on the skin, spots or discolouration. So, a good way to enjoy the sun and yet not let it damage your skin is to apply a sunscreen with a strong SPF, which is – sun protection factor – of more than 30, half hour before we step out. Also it will be a good idea to smear one after a bath, make it your daily routine so that an urgent chore that might take you to the shop by a short walk or if you have to hang the clothes out and get chatting with the neighbour all is good, you already have the sun protection on. It is all about getting into the habit. So to make that habit form easily, leave a bottle of sun screen in your bathroom. Just use it as moisturiser and all is good. If you know you are definitely going out, keep a small tube in your purse, another habit you need to cultivate. You can apply it if you are standing in an unexpectedly long queue or you didn't know it was a garden party. So the tube with you will find use on many days. Keep a sun screen lotion handy at all times, you could leave one in the vehicle too.
Smoking is one of the worst things that can happen to your skin. Smoking makes the blood vessels to constrict. The smaller blood vessels that feed the outer skin are also constricted and do not help the skin with the natural replenishments and nutrients from the natural process of the body. Hence the skin is thinner than that of a non-smoking person. Also nicotine has a regressive effect on the elasticity of the skin. That is why, the skin of a smoker looks more wrinkled than the skin of a non-smoker. A lot of women smoke to keep the weight down because smoking reduces appetite and thus helps you lose weight. But the effect of smoking on the skin is so bad a good figure and wrinkled skin, still will not make a pretty picture. There are a lot of things which can be used to reduce and finally kick the habit of smoking. There is Nicotine gum, which experts claim can substitute for nicotine dependency. Then there are inhalers, lozenges, nasal spray, and patches which can all help you quit, along with prescription medications. Please do talk to your doctor about the best option for you.
Free radicals:
What really are free radicals? It is one of the ways the sun damages your skin. The sun produces some harmful substances called free radicals. Free radicals are really unstable oxygen molecules with a single electron. There is a lot of science that goes into that, but what we need to know is that, doctors believe that ultraviolet light from the sun can lead to damaged DNA and skin damage. Free radicals may even play a role in the development of skin cancer. They are also the result of exposure to tobacco products or other factors in the environment like pollution that throws up a lot of carbon in the air. There are some skin-care products, which contain antioxidants such as vitamins C and E to help to lessen the ageing effects that free radicals have on your skin. Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables which contain antioxidants, especially berries, broccoli, carrots, and spinach is also good for healthy skin.
 Household products contain chemicals in cleaning products. Even laundry detergent can cause irritation of the skin and allergies in people who are susceptible. Ammonia and bleaches have a tendency to irritate the skin. These chemicals can also cause contact dermatitis which is scaling and irritation, and sometimes even a chemical burn. People with more sensitive skin will naturally experience more skin irritation than others. It is estimated that there are also more than 3,000 substances in our environment that can cause allergies.
The best way to protect your skin from such irritants is to avoid contact which is by wearing gloves when you do household chores like cleaning a stained floor or when you do dishes. There are some companies that are making products which are effective cleaners but do not hurt the skin. Switching to less irritating products is a good idea even if they are more expensive. Also, moisturising your skin can help a great deal. Just to make things easy leave a moisturiser in the kitchen cabinet.
Dermatologists say all our expressions through the years get expressed on our skin. What a revelation! So can we just stick to a straight face and go through a life of no emotions? Of course not! Dermatologists maintain all our laugh lines and frown lines begin to remain on the skin once the skin loses its elasticity. So I guess what we can do is use lotions that improve the elasticity of the skin, fight radicals that make us lose elasticity with a sunprotection cream. Also, we ought to eat nutritive diets, use the vitamin E-oil well.
Quit smoking or stay away from smokers and stop the passive smoking which also takes a toll on the skin. We ought to keep the best company and memories, frown less, and keep those lines away. Let the laugh lines be, they make us happy, speak about our experience of life and the happy days ahead!

But the high humidity and dampness of monsoon takes a toll on your skin, eyes and locks. But fret not! Grandma has lot of tips for the season to keep the skin glowing and hair healthy.
Skin Care
For Oily Skin:

Sebacious glands are hyperactive during monsoons producing more oil, pimples, black heads and white heads. A homemade mud pack with “chane ka atta and raw milk” will help in keeping your skin refreshing and glowing this monsoon. If someone has told you to cleanse the face as many times a day, grand ma says it's not necessary. But instead, whenever you wash, scrub your face with a natural scrub like channe ka atta. This helps to unclog your pores and it removes the layers of dead cells from your skin. Also, using warm water for cleansing is ideal as it dissolves more oil than cold water.
Fruity Treat: Mix 2 tablespoons of papaya pulp with a tablespoon of curd and an ounce of aloe vera gel. Mix this thoroughly and add few drops of lavender oil into this. Apply it on your face and leave for drying. This mixture helps in clearing blemishes and it rejuvenates your skin.
For Dry Skin: Dry skin related problems worsen during monsoons. Take a cotton wool, dab it in a mixture of rose water and glycerin. Apply this mixture over the face and hands. Wash it off after leaving for few minutes. This is good to keep your skin soft. A natural skin toner can be made at your home by mixing few drops of honey with two tablespoons of milk. It helps in toning as well as hydrating the skin.
Fruity Treat: Mix two tablespoons of pomegranate seeds with a cup uncooked oatmeal. Grind it to make a smooth paste. Pour this mixture into a bowl and add two tablespoons of honey and buttermilk. Apply this mix on your face and leave for few minutes and then rinse. It helps removing dead skin cells. Pomegranate seeds are rich sources of antioxidants and vitamin C.
Skin Infections: Monsoons also bring along with them, fungal and bacterial infections on skin. Turmeric is the best natural remedy against skin infections. Applying turmeric paste all over your body 15 minutes before bath at least once in a week is a good idea. Turmeric can be mixed with oil, water or milk. Turmeric and neem are best known natural antiseptics. You can also grind neem leaves with little water and mix turmeric powder into this paste. Wash it off once it is dried.
Hair Care

Rain can spoil the way your hair looks by making them greasy and rough. Even if you remain indoor, the high humidity can affect your hair. Don't worry thinking that homemade remedies are not handy. Here are few tips which you can avail from anywhere. Make a loose paste by mixing gram flour and curd. Add some drops of olive oil to this. Apply it on your hair, wait for 15-20 minutes and then wash well. Serums are getting dearer with girls for hair care. So here is a natural serum which can be made from any kitchen,without burning your pockets! Mix water with little vinegar and apply it on your hair after shampooing. It helps to calm down your hair. Fruity Treat: Mix one beaten banana with a tablespoon honey. Apply this mixture on your hair before bath and leave it for 15 minutes. It will make your hair smooth and soft. Also, follow your grandma's age old advice of regular oiling your hair prevents frizziness. But during monsoon, never leave the oil on your head for long.

Easy home remedies during the time of lockdowen - Beauty Tips

Grooming is a very important part in building someone's confidence and helps in leaving a great impression on other people, everyone be it a man or a women in today's era make it a point to be groomed at all the times but now when all the salons are shut we don't know how to take care of ourselves like the professionals do it for us. But today I am going to share ways through which you can groom yourself sitting at home with minimal things required. We shall go from top to bottom and work on every aspect so that we are well groomed all the time and look our best during lockdown as well.


It is the most important aspect in your beauty, it's the crown on your head and you should take extra care of it. I recommend shampooing your hair twice or thrice a week, depending upon how oily your hair gets, do regular oiling with warm oil - do this twice a week. Since we are at home, try to make a good hair mask and use that, I suggest a hair mask made with half squashed banana, 2 tablespoon conditioner, a squeeze of lemon, a tea spoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoon of Dahi. Also, learn how to blow dryer your hair, you can also learn to make simple hairstyles at home and experiment with your hair styling.
Skin : 

With summers around, it is really important to moisturise our skin regularly, remember to use a pack once a week using papaya, watermelon, a pack is like a iron for your skin, it nourish your skin and makes it more glowing. Exfoliate your skin twice a week, use rice powder, yoghurt, a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon. Mix this all together to make a nice exfoliator at home. And don't forget to cleanse tone and mositurise your face twice in a day - morning and before going to bed. This is a must to have a great skin forever.
Facial Hair : 

The biggest challenge that all women/ girls are facing is the facial hair, we miss our threading and upper lips session at the salons and though it takes a professional to do these we can do these simple things to keep our eyebrows in shape and remove upper lip hair. For threading, stretch your eyebrow from above and tweeze the extra hair, the extra ones around your eyebrow line. Don't use a thread as we are no experts and might lead to a cut. For upper lips, use a wax strip, cut it into small strips. Take one small strip put it on one side, stretch your upper lip from the other side and pull it in the opposite direction. Though I suggest to not use wax regularly, do it just once or twice until the salons open again.
Waxing :  

Those who are worried about hair on their hands and legs, can opt for either waxing or using aepilator or razor to remove hair. While waxing, put some powder on your hand/legs take a strip apply it in the direction of your hair, apply the strip on a small patch and then pull it in the opposite direction. For those who shave, wet your hands/legs, apply facewash thoroughly, have a good lather and then start shaving. Remember to apply lots of moisturiser after shaving.
Hand and Feet : 

We all are doing lot of household chores which is making our hands rough and heels chipped. To be properly groomed we need to take special care of our hands and feet. After taking your shower, push back the cuticles of your nails with your towel. Always keep your nails cut to a medium length, file them and wear a nail polish. This keeps your nails from getting brittle and they won't break easily. For your feet, while taking a shower, scrub your heels with a pumic stone and after towel drying them apply a good moisturiser. Also, remember to give a nice hand and foot massage to yourself before going to the bed at night.
Make up :

 We all are at home and don't feel like wearing makeup, but I suggest every now and then wear a bright lipstick as this brightens your face and pep up your mood as well. You can also use this time to learn how to do makeup, try different eye shadows, ways to apply eye liners and learn the right way to contour your face.

Prepare your head for winter - Hair care Tips

At times, especially, during a dry winter, it is quite normal for the scalp to be mildly flaky. The skin sheds dead cells in this way. This flakiness, if severe and persistent, is dandruff. It results from faster than normal skin growth and from too much or too little sebum being produced by the scalp's sebaceous glands.
Persistent dandruff can result in hair fall. The worst is when dry dandruff, if neglected, turns to a greasy form, "fatty pityriasis”, and the scalp is then vulnerable to infection, blisters, boils or eczema. If there is the slightest sign of the fine, dry, bran-like greyish scales which fall at theslightest scratch, do something about it.


• Change the brand of your shampoo as sometimes the flakiness can be due to an allergic reaction to a particular shampoo.
• Pick an anti-dandruff shampoo that suits your type and use it regularly to keep the scalp clean.
• Massage the scalp vigorously to help to remove the dead skin cells.
• Avoid using too many hair products. Allow your hair to dry naturally and avoid using a hair dryer unless essential.
• Avoid tinned fruit, sugar and caffeine. Drink plenty of water to balance the PH in the scalp.
• Use an anti-dandruff shampoo until your dandruff is cured, then switch back to your regular shampoo.
• Right fat. You might be told to do that for all sorts of things but it is really the basic perquisite for overall good health. Have lots of zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, and E and B vitamins and avoid yeast and sugar.
• Oiling is the next basic step to healthy hair. Our grandmother was right – regular tel maalish does lead to healthy, dandruff-free hair. Make sure you leave the oil on for a while, don't wash it off immediately.
• Excessive use of hair styling products like hair spray, mousse and gels contain ingredients that might make the scalp very dry causing flaking and itching.
• Washing your hair with mildly acidic products like lemon juice, baking soda, tea leaves or apple cider vinegar might also help, but consult a beautician or your doctor before you use these raw remedies.

Vinegar soak: Mix two tablespoons of vinegar and four tablespoons of hot water. Dab this mixture with cotton wool into the scalp parting the hair with the comb to reach the affected parts. Use it preferably at bedtime. Tie a scarf over the hair to prevent staining the pillow. Next morning wash the hair with a shampoo. After the hair has been thoroughly cleansed pour on the hair a last rinse mixture of three tablespoons of vinegar in a cup of hot water. Dry the hair thoroughly. Do this twice a week for three months.
Hot oil therapy: Massage hot oil into the scalp at bedtime. Next morning, an hour before bathing, rub one part lemon juice mixed with two parts of vinegar into the scalp. An hour later wash the hair with a good egg shampoo or any shampoo will do. Continue this treatment once a week for three months and then stagger it to once a fortnight for the next two months.
Greasy dandruff: If not treated, dry dandruff can transform itself into greasy dandruff. The dry scale of dandruff on the scalp will gradually become greasy, sticking to the scalp and the base of the hair. In this  condition dandruff turns yellow, moist and stops falling. You might even think that your condition has taken a turn for the better whereas, in fact, it is now becoming more serious and difficult to cure. Hair fall begins since the scalp is permanently dirty.
Try a mixture of two tablespoons of sulphur powder and sufficient coconut oil to make a paste. Apply this paste at bedtime all over the scalp. The next morning wash it off with an egg shampoo. The treatment should be followed twice a week and continued for three months.
Nettle (Kikai) rinse: Take 1/4 cup of nettle and dip them in two cups of boiling water for half an hour. When the solution cools, add 1/4 cup of vinegar. Massage this mixture into the scalp twice a day.
Chemomile rinse: Mix two tablespoons of dried chamomile flower heads in two cups of boiling water for half an hour. Cool this solution and use it after every shampoo as a last rinse. Chamomile flower heads are found in hill stations like Kashmir, Nainital and Bhimtal.
Greasy dandruff: Neglected dandruff can lead to serious ailments like 'seborrhoea'. If the condition of your scalp shows little improvement, consult a dermatologist. Flakiness can be precipitated by travelling and excessive central heating which can over-dry the scalp. The problem of dandruff should be dealt with without delay.
