    I was just wondering why don't we post a beauty tip everyday.
    This should be a beauty tip from natural products than the 1000s of branded and unbranded cosmetics available these days.

    Let me start with this tip...

    Try this for a clear complexion:

    Mix equal amounts of Glycerine, rose-water and lemon juice.
    Apply it over your face using a soft cotton. (Avoid applying on the eyebrows).

    Glycerine does wonders on the skin :eek:

    Relax your feet

    Rathi, that's a wonderful idea to have a beauty tip listed everyday.
    Here is my tip for today...it may not be exactly a beauty tip, but a tip for relaxing feet.

    Take a basin filled with luke warm water. Add 20-25% of salt in proportion to the water quantity. Place your feet in this water for 30-45 minutes till the water gets cold.
    This is will give a good relaxation to feet, especially for a tired feet that hurts.

    This is something followed by my people back home from my grandmother's days!

    Cheers,
    Vinu

    Black circles around the eyes...

    Most of us would get black circles around the eyes, we know that it is due to eyes getting tired.

    Cut cucumber into thin round pieces. Close your eyes and place them on the cucumber pieces on top of your eyes for 10 to 15 mins.
    Then wet a cotton ball with rose water and softly press it around your eyes.
    This will keep your eyes cool and will help in relaxing.
    You can do this once in 15 days even if you don't have dark circles, but for relaxing your eyes.

    (I remember in those days in movies, heroines will have a make-up of dark circles around their eyes to show their sick :lol:; So earlier I used to get scared when I get black circels around my eyes!)

    Fresh facial - smash and apply papaya

    Papaya fruit is a good facial cleanser.

    Cut papaya into small pieces and smash them finely into a paste.
    Apply them on your face and leave it for 10mins.
    Wash with cold water.

    Constant applying will reduce oiliness and leaves your skin clean.

    Hi friends,
    Now it is summer time in India. The temperature is soaring. With the combined effect of sun light and pollution, the face complexion become dull. The best remedy to get a glowing complexion is: :D

    Mix a tea spoon each of lemon juice, yoghurt, besan and half a tea spoon of table salt to make a smooth paste. Apply the paste in the face and allow it to dry for 10 to 15 minutes. Later wash the fae with clod water.

    You could feel that your face is refreshed and glowing. :p

    Bye Keep smiling.

    I guess, majority of people are troubling with black heads

    Here is a solution to this……

    Take some thick curd and apply over the blackhead affected region.
    Leave it for 10 mnutes. Wash it off with cold water.

    Do the above once in a week.

    bye

    Tips for the day...

    Castor Oil can do wonders to your eyelashes if applied regularly.

    If you want thick black eye lashes, mix castor oil with coconut oil and apply it. Otherwise you would find castor oil to be very thick and sticky.

    Happy grooming.
