There are variations in the skin types, but all of the types go through similar issues, and the ways to deal with them do not differ much. Scaly, rough and dry skin creates trouble for all because it causes an annoying sort of itching, leading to rashes and wounds. With ample amounts of both natural and man-made ways, one gets ways to combat this annoying feeling by just following the tips. Skin care tips and techniques are one of the most inquired questions on various forums, beauty channels and even magazines. This excerpt even focuses to answer this question in a way that the solution seeker gets the simplest solution easily;

Skin needs moisture to remain healthy, gloomy and fresh. Those who properly moisturize their skins never come cross across any roughness and dullness because they know how to feed their skin. Consider that the skin is a living thing and needs food for its best growth, freshness and health. So, that means skin needs a few things as mandatory for its growth and that includes, moisturizing on a daily basis, or even twice a day.

Make a habit of covering the entire skin with a good lotion or a cream; this would help in providing freshness and smoothness. Even if the idea is about improving the texture and the tone of the skin, application of the cream and lotion would turn out to be extremely effective. Also, when the skin would remain moist, it would enhance the overall appearance and add some sort of a shine to the skin as a whole. Also, it is said that those who keep the skin moist tend to retain it from wrinkles and other aging effects.

Make a habit of taking short showers so that the skin is exposed to fresh water regularly. Also, try using products have either of the following ingredients;

  1. Oil
  2. Butter
  3. Vaseline
  4. Jelly

In other words, all the products which include greasy components are perfectly designed to increase moisture on the body. Even oils like almond oil and olive oil have the capacity to beautify the skin and keep it lively. All the natural products like Aloe Vera, milk, and cream are even better choices when it comes to their usage on the skin.

One may be allergic to one or the other product, so whenever trying to test a new product, take advice from the cosmetic doctor or any other dermatologist for a better idea. After all, when it comes to the skin related products, precarious attitude is always a wise move.

    Yesterday I went to the supermarket and I saw two body washes cleansing body washes and moisturizing body wash and I am really confused which one I choose. Please also tell me what the difference between them?

    • says

      You should choose moisturizing body wash because it gently, less soap and also hydrates your skin without drying it out. Cleansing body wash has a lot of soap and it makes your skin dry and rough.

    I personally use Olive Oil on my skin and it keeps my skin so soft.

    I also use a product called Nerium which has eliminated scars on my back and reduced stretch marks.

      Firstly you have to do a short term detoxify program which cleanse your blood and helps to flush out the toxins. Basically on this problem you have to do fast for 3 to 7 days not more than it. You can only eat fruits and vegetables, I will prefer that you should use fruits and fruits/ vegetable juices more. You can drink milk but without sugar yea you can add some honey, herbal teas. Apply some fruit juice on skin. When doing this please you have to relax and reduce stress and angers. You can take a hot shower. Remember to do little bit exercises like walking etc. When you are done this program contact with me I will further send you the treatment.

      Increase your water consumption. Exfoliate daily with a mild exfoliant, or every other day if your skin is sensitive. Apply sunscreen daily. Rub a lemon half gently over your face and any other areas you’d like to lighten. Let the juice sit until dry, then rinse off with warm water. Avoid the sun when doing this treatment. Take 1tsp (5mL) of milk and 1 tsp (5mL) of honey. Mix them together and massage into your face. Use nonfat milk for oily skin, and whole milk or cream for dry skin. Combine one teaspoon (5mL) of turmeric and three tablespoons (45mL) of lime to make a mask. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. This will stain clothing, so be careful. Beat an egg white until frothy, then apply to your face. When it dries, throughly wash off. Do not use this mask on broken skin. Mix 2 tablespoons (30mL) of honey with two tablespoons (30mL) plain yogurt. Leave it on your face for about 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. I hope it helps you.

      Before your bath, apply oil on the area and massage it into the skin. This helps to soften the skin. Sesame seed (til) oil, olive oil or even sunflower oil may be used. While bathing, go easy on the soap and avoid very hot water. Give the area a gentle rub with the loofah or rough towel. Immediately after your bath, apply a body lotion while the skin is still damp. If the skin on the elbows and knees is excessively dry, use a thicker cream on them. Massage the cream into the skin on these areas. Body scrubs and packs also help. Try sesame seeds, dried mint leaves and honey. They have a remarkably rejuvenating effect on the skin. Crush the sesame seeds coarsely and powder the dried mint leaves. Mix them with a little honey and apply on the skin. Removes tan and produces an even colour tone. Honey moisturises and softens the skin. mix besan (gram flour), curd, lemon juice and little haldi (turmeric) into a paste. Apply it at least three times a week. Wash it off after half an hour. Take ripe papaya pulp and add lemon juice. Apply this on the area and rub the skin with it for a few minutes. Wash off with plain water.

      Take half teaspoon of honey with a pinch of cinnamon, Lemon juice and some raw milk. Apply it on your skin for 30 minutes then wash it off. stop eating foods which made with red pepper and start eating foods which made with black pepper. Consume more water. Stay out of the sun. If he want to go out in sun then at least use a high SPF sunblock with a minimum SPF of 30. I would suggest using homemade toners for your skin type. Green tea for oily and combination skin and rose water for dry skin. cup of tea water (cooled down) 2 spoons of rice flour ½ a spoon of honey Mix the above ingredients and apply on the skin. Leave it on till the mask dries completely for 20 minutes or more. Before cleaning the mask with water, make sure you massage the facial skin in circular motions, this is very important as it removes the dead skin and evens the skin tone. then wash your face with cold water. Take lemon zest or lemon rind ( the outer skin grated), or even orange zest, dry them out in the sun (do not microwave) and then grind them to powder. Store in a dry air tight container. Mix it with raw milk and use as pack on affected areas. Wash off with warm water only. Immediately use a cool toner after.Eat fruits with Vitamin C for the antioxidants.

Mix equal parts baking soda and warm water (2 tablespoons each) into a paste Using a circular motion, massage paste into pores gently for about 30 seconds. Rinse off using cool water.

    Hai hira mam,I’ve got white oily face and sometimes it got dry too..small pimples comes at times..how to make my face oil free nd shinning?

    • says

      Keep your skin very clean. Limit washing your face to two or three times a day. Too much washing will stimulate your skin to produce more oil. take good amount of water , eat salad as much as you can and avoid junk , fried and oily food. eat healthy simple food . Eat seasonal fruits . Watch television for not more than an hour or laptop even . take rests in between because too much sitting in front of these devices also make your oil glands secrete much oil. And always use a sunscreen suitable for your skin while going out in the sun . Make an oatmeal paste with olive oil and lemon juice. Scrub your face with that paste and this will help reduce the oil and blackheads from your skin. Make sure you wash your face afterwards with warm water.
      A weekly mask can be applied which contains clay. This can be very good for your skin care routine. First you can buy/use Clean an Clear oil absorbing sheets, it Instantly soaks up excess oil and wont remove shine from face, Use anywhere to remove oil and shine throughout the day.
