Hi all, I am extremely thankful to all the Ilites who have responded to my thread on “Mini parlour in our house”.I really felt happy when one among them said that she really benefitted from the tips which I gave.That is what really needed. I present some more beauty tips to be followed using available home products in our house.Some among them or all may be known already but still I hope it may help a little bit. Before proceeding ,I would suggest some ideas which I have observed and experimented 1)Before applying any face pack,take some piece of cotton wool dip it in clean water and wipe on the face(Neither wipe too hardly nor too softly).This helps to remove the outer layer of dirt on the face(especially for women who are going out often) and then proceed with your usual routine. 2)Whatever facepack you are applying(from the following) ,instead of washing the face after the required time,take a clean towel ,dip in a mug of hot water(not too hot) and wipe with it two or three times.This gives better results than usual. 3)Never use soap for atleast two or three hours after applying any product on the face(You may even know this tip). Let me go with the tips. 1)SKIN TANNING: In this hot summer season many of us are suffer from skin tanning.Take two tablespoons each of curd, lemon juice,rose water and apply on the face,neck and tanned areas.This works out best when followed regularly on alternative basis.This also helps to improve the complexion.This also helps for those who have oily skin .If you are have fair complexion take care that you do not apply regularly. 2)Take one teaspoon of Bengal gram flour, two spoons of curd or milk,l to 2 teaspoons of rose water or lemon juice(requirement depends on the nature of your skin),little bit of pure water and form a pack.Apply on the face,neck and allow it to dry for five to ten minutes. Bengal gram flour makes the skin softer,needless to say lemon bleaches the face. 3)Take two teaspoons of multanimetti(available on all herbal medical shops), 1 teaspoon of pure turmeric powder(kasturi manjal),some amount of pure water,as usual make it a paste by mixing with any of the above mentioned . You can follow either tip two or three.If you are running out of time in a hurry,never mind ,just take 2 teaspoons of rose water & lemon juice and apply on the face with a cotton.This gives instant freshness. 4)FOR DANDRUFF: a)Take any antidandruff shampoo.You must decide which is best.I personally feel Anti dandruff shampoo from himalaya product is good.Before shampooing apply some amount of coconut oil on the hair,massage well on the roots of the hair.Take a clean towel, dip in a half a bucket of hot water and tie the towel covering the entire head.wait for half an hour and then take bath.This can also be used when you are using Shikai powder. b)Take some amount of curd,half tumbler of lemon juice(diluted),apply on the hair,massage well and then take hair bath. c)Take some amount of fenugreek seeds,dip it in hot water.Do it before going to bed if you are taking hair bath in the morning.Take the fenugreek seeds which is dipped,grind well and mix it with curd and apply on the hair.(apply thoroughly on the roots using fingers in circular movements) before hair bath.Wait for some time before bathing. Though the above tips may not immediately bring a solution but still yields good results. 5)FOR HEALTHY HAIR For good and long hair you can use karilanganni oil (it is available on all herbal medical shops.It is sold as powder as well as oil) before hair bath.But make sure whether it suits with your body nature as I don’t have a clear picture of it. Let me finish with it. I will come up with some more tips in the future.Good Wishes to all of you.
