Keep Your Fingernails Dry And Clean

All problems start with germs and bacteria. You must make sure that there is no scope for them to breed. Clean your nails regularly and make sure you dry them after washing. This also prevents dirt and bacteria from accumulating under your nails. However, don’t overdo it; nails soaked in water for long durations may lead to splits. When you need to wash dishes, it is best to protect your fingernails with gloves. You also need to ensure that the skin around the nails is clean and dirt-free too. What we recommend is you take a toothbrush and apply some salt onto it and use it to scrub your nails and the skin around them gently. Back To TOC

Cleanse Your Skin With Almond Oil

A good cleanser should clear your skin of debris, sweat, and makeup. Your skin should feel clean without being stripped of its natural oils or its natural skin microbiome – those microorganisms that live on your skin helping to protect it and keep it healthy. To look it’s best, your skin needs its natural oils and a healthy skin microbiome. A lot of cleansers though make your skin feel like it’s really clean – perhaps even squeaky clean – but they’re actually removing some important lipids from your skin and disrupting the pH of your skin. Instead of stripping your skin with foamy cleansers you can use oils such as argan and almond oil to cleanse your skin naturally, or use a natural cleanser. The natural actives in argon oil and almond oil are fantastic at cleansing your skin thoroughly while also helping to replace lost lipids. Yes, they can remove makeup, but they also hydrate your skin – being absorbed into your skin without blocking your skin pores. And they have a high amount of vitamins A, B and E that feed your skin and leave it supple and glowing. Pure almond oil also keeps your skin properly moisturized for a longer period of time. So instead of using soap that lathers and strips your skin, try using argon or almond oils as a cleanser to nourish your skin while you cleanse for a healthy clean glow.

Stop Dark Circles Under Your Eyes With Arnica

The appearance of dark circles under your eyes is often due to a lack of sleep, but they can also be caused by food and environmental allergies, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, and aging. Dark circles caused by food and environmental allergies are called “allergic shiners” and are best treated by identifying possible allergens you’ve come in contact with – and then avoiding them for 10 days to see if the skin tone under your eyes returns to normal. If that doesn’t work, start by increasing the amount of water you drink each day. Dehydration can lead to the appearance of dark circles because the skin around your eyes is very close to the underlying bone, and a lack of fluids can cause blood vessels to become more visible. In addition to drinking more water try using arnica gel or skin care products containing arnica. Arnica is a flowering plant in the sunflower family. Its yellow petals are collected and dried for use in herbal remedies and medications. Arnica helps boost the circulation of white blood cells which helps accelerate healing. It also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that alleviate swelling and reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles. Most natural arnica gels will help with periodic dark circles, but to keep those dark circles away its best to use a natural skin care product that contains arnica daily.

Stop Biting Your Nails

Biting your nails causes a lot of damage. In addition to making your nails look pathetic, the contact with your saliva makes them weak and brittle. It also harms your cuticles. Also, putting fingers in your mouth transmits the dirt and germs from your fingers to your mouth. We advise you to apply a nail paint that smells bad and puts you off to help you stop biting your nails. Back To TOC

Improve Your Complexion With Ylang Ylang Oil

The primary cause of dry, oily skin (aka combination skin) is simply genetics. And balancing a dry and oily complexion – whether you have an oily T-zone, large pores, or dry spots – can be frustrating and challenging. While hydrating, cutting out sugars from your diet, and using natural skin care products will help… sometimes your skin needs a little extra help balancing the amount of oil it produces and where. For combination skin, Ylang Ylang oil helps balance sebum levels for both dry and oily complexions. And, in addition to having soothing and smoothing effect, it has a lovely smell. Ylang Ylang oil helps balance and regulate oil production in your skin and hair to prevent excessive dryness and oiliness, while also soothing inflammation and irritation. It helps address acne by enhancing circulation, encouraging the growth of new skin, hydrating your skin, and helps prevent infections with its anti-microbial properties. To maintain a youthful skin and healthy looking complexion – just add a few drops to your favorite oil blend. It’s also one of the essential oils in my favorite skin care line.

Tame Your Cuticles

Cuticles are very delicate and get ruptured easily. Taking good care of your cuticles is a crucial part of nail care. If you have hanging skin or nail, handle it carefully – trim it gently so that it doesn’t stick out or cause more pain. Do not bite or pick the cuticles. Make sure you moisturize your cuticles – apply either coconut or almond oil to the cuticles and massage gently to nourish them. Back To TOC

Walk barefoot

Try to walk around in the house without any slippers or shoes. Naked soles push the flow of blood and face remains bright.

Take walks in the park

My grandparents always told me to try to wake up with nature, breathe some fresh air and try to walk without shoes on green grass. This not only improves your eyesight, but also gives you enough Oxygen for a fresh and enchanting look. It is said that just by looking at green grass, you can kill almost twenty potential diseases like Diabetes and Cataract.

She takes her makeup off every night.

Stefani admittedly wears a lot of it (she was a makeup artist in her twenties!), but it's all for the performance factor. "I do my own makeup whenever I play live," the singer told Cosmopolitan. "I don't know what it is, but something about that whole kind of war paint, you know, putting it on, building the confidence. Once I get the makeup on, it's show time, I've said that for years and its so true." This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site. Afterward, she always removes her makeup to keep her pores fresh and clean throughout the night. "The one thing that I have really changed is trying to get all the makeup off," she told Elle. "It was hard when I was younger because I was always on a tour bus, literally washing my face with bottled water, inside a bus. But the key is to keep it clean at night [and] let your face breath because I really don't let it breathe at any other time."

Raw vegetables and salad

Eat raw Carrots, Radish, Cucumber, Tomatoes, and Onions etc. in raw form as much as possible for elastic and blemish free skin. Another pearl of wisdom from grandma’s closet.
