    Hi friends,

    Here are some good face pack recipes. Hope you like them

    B
    y definition, if after two hours of washing your face your skin is neither too dry nor too oily, you have balanced or 'normal' skin.

    People with a balanced skin type are lucky, since they do not suffer from problems like acne and 'oil shine', or excessive dryness which causes flaking and dullness on the skin. However, do not take your skin for granted. You need to care for your skin to ensure that it doesn't fall prey to the heat, humidity and dust.

    Here are some face packs to help refresh and rejuvenate your skin:

    1. An apple a day
    Blend half an apple into a puree, add two teaspoons of honey and squeeze in a capsule of vitamin E. Mix well and apply for 10-15 minutes.

    2. Carrot-honey scrub
    Wash and peel a medium-sized carrot and blend in a mixer along with two teaspoons of honey. Add a teaspoon of coarse rava (semolina) and a few drops of lavender essential oil (optional), and apply immediately. Scrub off with circular movements of your palms after about 15 minutes. This works as a skin conditioner while exfoliating your skin.

    3. Orange-yogurt mask
    Whisk three tablespoons of full cream yogurt with three teaspoons of orange juice. The lactic acid in the yogurt helps peel off dead skin cells and is a whitening agent. The orange juice acts as a skin toner, tightening up open pores.

    4. Pumpkin-egg yolk nourisher
    Take a two-inch cube of ripe orange pumpkin and puree it. Add an egg yolk and blend well. You can add a few drops of rose or sandalwood essence to disguise the odour of the egg. Egg yolk contains vital nutrients that nourish the skin and pumpkin is a rich source of vitamin A.

    5. Grandma's sandal pack

    The age-old recipe for beautiful skin -- sandalwood paste -- does indeed work wonders. Crush a small piece of sandalwood (available at shops selling pooja supplies) till you get half a teaspoon of brown paste. Mix this with besan (gram flour) or Multani mitti (Fuller's earth) and a few drops of milk to make a thick paste. Apply over face and neck and leave for 15 minutes. Use this pack at least twice a week for best results.

    Even with normal skin, there may be seasonal fluctuations. For instance, your skin might feel a slightly drier in winter or a stickier in summer, so vary your face pack accordingly by adding an extra ingredient or two. You can add milk cream or olive oil in the winter to your routine pack to increase its moisturising capacity. Conversely, a few drops of lemon juice in the summer take care of any excess oiliness.

    Remember to pay attention to the way your skin reacts to various face packs and their ingredients. With time and experience, you can tailor-make your face pack to perfectly suit your skin.

    Regards

    tips for glowing skin ( naturally) i follow it

    hi , i would like to share some of the tips for glowing skin i had skin problems since my skin is comination i had racked heels and rough hands now reduced and face with pimples.. so read a lot about it and following certain things to have better skin and to be healthy...

    1. after getting up drink lots of water abut a bottle full( to detoxify)

    2. take some time and do jogging for 10 min initially or brisk walking for 1/2 hr initially then increase alternatively with some basic yogic exercise including breathing exercises this is because when you workout you sweat and sweat throws out the toxins which cleanes your skin and the blood circulates well , making your skin glow... do not forget to sip water while exercising ... on the whole exercise and water makes wonder for skin in turn helps in healthy body too...

    3. eat fruits everyday oranges, papaya, sweet lime are real good , include tomatoes in your food they are very good for skin.. eat curds everyday..

    4. do not take hot bath everyday only when you feel tired or sick else take cold or warm water bath..

    5.carry an umbrella in the hot sun .. after a sun tan apply tomato pulp and take a cold bath.. and wear warm clothes in the chill especially socks ( even at home) else you get a cracked feet

    6. do pranayama regularly atleast for 1/2 hr ... this will surly help you get good oxygen needed for the cells in turn helping in good skin, and good health..

    7.apply avacado oil which is natural for dry skin its real good non sticky better than creams and lotion .. apply it in the night even to your lips.. in winters it makes wonders ..you get many brands , biotic is real good..

    8. avoid creams as much as possible they damage the skin rather helping.. use natural oil which suits your skin..they are in the amrket to make bussiness fooling us and adds completely fool us .. dont be carried away use your sense and be natural...

    9. avoid make up .. be natural... if needed apply but dont keep it for long ... in unavoidable situations use the best one do not go for the cheap saying its economical .. make good research before buying products .. since you get many fake ones in market..

    10 for the cracked heels dip legs in warm water with milk cream for 10 min.. scrub it with honey and sugar for 5-10 min then rub with hot water towel..then apply oil... and wear a socks...

    11. for oily face wash your face with cold water many times a day.. use the chick pea flour instead of soaps and face washes all time.. keep lime water ( lime squeezed in water ) in the fridge and apply it on the face in the evening after all the work outside is done ...then wash .. apply ice all over the face ... this not only removes oil but also prevents acne..

    12. for the acne.. the best is not to apply any cosmetic creame... or make up over it .. follow the above , and exercises and drink lots of water to remove toxins... in addition drink bitter gourd , cucumber,juice tomato carrot juices often... also use freshly ground neem leaves on the face as a pack often... i had a pimply face believe me i followed a strict routine to remove the acne and now its gone !!! there are few though but even that will go with a healthy routine...

    13.with all this you need to control the food habbits .. for oily skin- do not eat buttery, oil, heavy non veg ( veg is best you can get protiens from milk ,soya , grains) fried , junk food ..

    14 for dry skin do not eat pungent sour food like use of tamarind , lime should be reduced very much ...

    15. on the whole have a good diet full of fruits , vegetables, green leafy ones, fruit and vegetable juices with very less sugar or without sugar use jaggery instead..use less oil , cut down coffee , tea,choclates ,chips , soda keep lots of gap eating them drink milk , buttermilk, curds , lots of water ... keep the mind cool do yoga , pranayama, and stretching exercises with walk or jog on alternate days .. sweat it out... and have a good sleep... and have a good routine...

    the above has really helped me .. i hope it will benefit you'll as well but to get the best results always have continuity and committment...

    Thanks,
    All this is very true.
    I did though have a few pimples, along with all this I used the CLEAN AND CLEAR BY JOHNSON daily regime including face wash,moisturiser and scrub and beleive me it worked wonders and now my face is clear. I use shenaz facial once in 3 months and my skin feels wonderful now, even pimple marks have disappeared.
