Not every product available in the market is good and safe to apply on our face or bodies, you never know what has been put in it. Even though we scan the expiry date of the product meticulously, but not even once we give a second thought to read its ingredients, where one would find thousands of chemicals used in the process, before buying it.
An individual’s skin is a reflection of her general health, so instead of splurging on cosmetics, a wise step would be to turn into one’s own kitchen, what not many are aware of is safe and amazing beauty products. They are natural, easily available and harmless.
Get rid of pimples, acne and blemishes
Try Fuller’s Earth, turmeric, fresh cream and honey as a paste instead of readymade and stored since months face wash tubes. They not only lighten the marks but also prevent them from making a place on your face again. Lemon and Orange peel dried (stored for a year in ones refrigerator) and mixed with cold milk can be used as a scrub to remove tan as well on alternate days.
Papaya and tomato pulp, mashed and applied, help to cover up the pores and reduce oiliness of the face, even the fine wrinkles. In addition, one can never go wrong with Neem leaves (either applied as a paste or just washed and eaten daily); a traditional herb is effective in treating oily skin and acnes. No side effects at all.
