    Re: Home Remedies For Scars,body odur,closing pores....




    Shrink Large Pores !!!

    The enlarged pores result due to over activity of the sebaceous glands (oil glands)in the skin.Blackheads and large pores usually come together. This is because the pores are larger, so oil and dead skin sits inside them. This becomes a blackhead and stretches the pore even larger.Here are some home remedies that will help in shrinking the large pores.
    To temporarily reduce the size of the pores, wrap an ice cube with a cotton cloth and pat it over your face.

    1.Tomato juice helps in reducing the size of the pores. Therefore apply it on the skin regularly with a cotton ball and leave it for 20 minutes.Add tomato juice to calamine powder or sandalwood powder, as they help in reducing the size of the pores and even tone up the skin well. These packs help skin to reduce the sebum production and thus help in reducing the size of the pores.


    2.Honey is equally good to tone up the pores and reduce the oiliness from the skin. It can be applied in any of the facial masks or can be directly applied on the skin with a little lemon juice and sugar to it. Massage it on face and leave it for few minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Honey added to milk powder too helps if applied on the skin.


    3.Make a paste of almond meal and water and apply it on pores for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and apply witch hazel or a solution of apple cider vinegar and water.


    4.Stir 2 tablespoons dry oatmeal into 1/4 cup buttermilk. Cover and let stand overnight. Strain off the liquid and smooth it over your face. Wait for 20 minutes, rinse off with cool water, rub with an ice cube, and then blot dry.

    5.Stir 2 tablespoons dry oatmeal into 1/4 cup buttermilk. Cover and let stand overnight. Strain off the liquid and smooth it over your face. Wait for 20 minutes, rinse off with cool water, rub with an ice cube, and then blot dry.




    Get rid of different kind of body scars:

    Acne scars
    1
    .Apply sandalwood paste with rosewater and leave it overnight over the scars. You can even apply a mixture of sandalwood paste and black gram paste.

    2.For dark acne scars use lemon juice. Before applying, clean the scars with warm water and dab 1 tsp of lemon juice into a cotton ball and apply it on the scars and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to apply sunscreen prior to going out in the sun as lemon juice makes your skin photosensitive.

    3.
    Cucumber with lemon juice or honey with lemon juice also helps. Honey also helps for chicken pox scars. However people with oily skin should avoid the use of honey.

    4.Apply a paste of gram flour, curd, turmeric and lemon juice and leave for 10-20 minutes.

    5
    .Mix 1 tablespoon each of sour cream, yogurt, grinded oatmeal and few drops of lemon juice. Apply it on scars and leave for 10 minutes and rinse.

    6.Gently rub baking soda paste on your scar for sixty seconds and rinse off. It acts as micro dermabrasion treatment for your skin
    .

    7
    .Apply smashed pineapple on your face and leave it for 10 minutes. Wash it off with warm water. It will help in fading acne marks as pineapple contains ascorbic acid.



    Chicken pox and other skin infection scars:

    1
    .To reduce the effects of chicken pox scarring apply Sandalwood oil from the first day of appearance of rash.

    2.To prevent deepening of the chicken pox scars apply cod liver oil, Aloe Vera gel, or vitamin E oil.

    3.
    For skin infection scars smear some tea tree oil on the scar or apply cocoa butter.

    4.You can also use wheat grass spray to reduce the scar effects on your body.

    5.
    To end with drink 80 ounces of filtered water everyday as water keeps the skin plump, removes toxins, and builds new skin cells. Although above products are helpful too many other may be allergic to it. Therefore make sure to avoid using any of these products if you are allergic to it.



    Home Remedy For Body Odour:

    1
    .To prevent body odor, drink a glass of water in the morning, on an empty stomach, along with 500 mg wheat grass. The chlorophyll present in the grass will help in reducing body odor.

    2.To reduce the pH of the skin and eliminate armpit odor, one can use apple cider vinegar instead of deodorant. Put it in a mug of water and use it to rinse the armpits, while bathing
    .
    3
    .Mix two drops of the tea tree oil (essential oil) and one ounce of water. Pour this in a spray-top bottle and use as a deodorant. Since tea tree is an antibacterial herb, it would act favorably in preventing body odor.

    4.Boil mint leaves and add the water to your bath water. Keep some aside for a special dousing for your armpits and between the thighs.

    5
    .Adding a teaspoon of alum to your bath water make you smell fresh all the day.

    6.One of the simple home remedies for body odor is to put a few drops of rose water in the bathtub, before taking bath. It will give you a long lasting freshness and
    serve as a good substitute for deodorant.

    7 .Baking soda used as a powder will absorb chemicals; therefore this will remove body odours. Use a powder puff, which has been used for talc, to apply the powder.
