Tips for smooth skin

Postby chocoswiss » Fri, 24 Jun 2005 2:01 pm

ok, maybe itz just me but i see so many recommendations for skin care whihc are commercial [creams/parlours n all] watever happened to hoem remedies?? :P
anyway, saw these tips at another forum i frequent n decided this forum is in need of more 'natural' tips... :p

1. Mash the bananas along with milk and then apply on your face. Wash it off after 20 minutes. This makes the skin smooth and supple.

2. Blend the egg white and honey well and then apply on the face. This makes your skin smooth and helps to reduce wrinkles.

3. Blend turmeric powder with milk and apply on the face. It removes the tan and helps to reduce the facial hair. Scrub it off with a good face scrub and then wash with cold water. You can also keep it overnight.

4. Mix oatmeal along with curds and tomato juice and apply on the face. Keep it on for 20 minutes and then wash it off with cold water. It helps to remove the tan and lightens the skin.

5. Apply raw sliced potato on the face. Reduces blemishes and other scars.

6. Cucumber juice is an excellent astringent. Applying cucumber juice on the face tightens the pores. Wash it off after 15 minutes.

7. Applying turmeric powder along with limejuice removes the tan. Limejuice is a natural bleach.

8. Dried orange peels mixed with curds help reduce blemishes and scars. Wash it off after 15 minutes with cold water.

9. Honey makes the skin glow. It makes the skin soft and smooth. Helps reduce wrinkles.

10. Citrus face packs and sandalwood face packs are excellent for oily skin.

11. Rubbing ice cubes on the face tightens the pores and increases blood circulation.

Hi chocoswiss thanks for the wonderful tips...

Just want to share mine...

I cosume Aloe Vera juice drink recommended by my friend recently. I have been drinking it almost three months now and is about 2 bottles a month. I tell you, I can see the difference - its amazing. Not only smooth but glow & radiant.... and find it costs alot cheaper compared to Imedean and bird nest.

They have other flavours but I chose the original which is the natural flavour. It took me a week to get used to the taste of the original flavour.

Hey I have no complain.. :D

Gal, where to buy the natural aloe juice?
If it does wonders I may want to try it.. but right now for clear skin i use the alpha hydroxy acid from paula's choice. it's great..helps to clear blemishes and lightens the skin tone.
We'll get along fine as soon as you realize I'm Good.
