Get Rid of Acne

For Acne and Acne Marks:
-regulalry change ur pillow cases and dont touch your face with hands or nails. keep your towels and other accessories separate.
-drink lots of water and try to eat fresh fruits, juices, vegs and non oily foods.
-Normally, pimples and acne are associated with an oily skin. In case these occur on a dry skin then this is the ideal treatment. Take a few tomatoes and puree them. Freeze the puree into cubes (in an ice cube tray). Store these frozen tomato ice cubes in a bag or a container in the freezer. During the day, apply one cube each on either cheek, all the time rubbing gently. Repeat the treatment everday. A very effective way of getting rid of pimples.
-always use water base creams for face and dont use soap as it is harsh for skin. my own kitchen remedy for acne is which is quite effective too, take one egg white and add some powdered champhore in it apply it gently over ur skin and then leave it to dry and afterwards wash your face with luke warm water it will help a lot.it will also help you tighten your pores.
-Rub raw garlic on the face. It even removes the scars on repeated application. Garlic Juice with 3 parts water is an excellent cleansing agent.
-Extract juice of one lemon and mix with equal quantity of rose water. Apply this mixture on the face and let it stay for about half an hour. Wash the face with fresh water. About 15 days application helps cure acne, pimples and reduces blemishes and scars.
-To help diminish the appearance of Tan complexion,acne scars, freckles and age spots, gently rub a cut lemon and 1/2 teaspoon sugar granules over the skin for a few minutes. Repeat at least thrice a week until the darkened areas fade.

Hair Styles

High Point: Gather all the hair to the back of the head and make a high ponytail. Take 3 nets and pin it on the ponytail. Divide the ponytail into 3 sections. Fold the first section into two layers and cover the hair with the net. Roll the hair with two fingers and place it on top of the ponytail and secure with a pin inside. Repeat the same with the other 2 sections of the hair and secure the rolls. Secure the rolls above the ponytail with pins.

Beehive:Gather all the hair at the back of your head. Hold all the hair in one hand and twist until it doubles back on itself. Secure by placing a pin, just catching the hair centrally, leaving out the sides. Fan out the ends by separating the hair into fluffy loose curls, and pin them as you want.

French Connection: Part the hair sideways at the front. Comb back a section of the hari from the crown and braid it. Secure with an elastic band. Draw all the remaining hair to the back of your head and wrap it around one hand, from right to left. Roll the hair inwards, so that the end is tucked in smoothly. Begining at the bottom of the roll, secure it with pins. Fold the braided hair into two (based on hair length) and place it over the pin area, and secure onto the top of the roll using a pin.

Curly Wurly: Part the hair in the centre, from the forehead to the middle of the crown. Smoothen out the hair at the back and secure into a ponytail with an elastic band. For the hair in front, take small sections (about 1 inch) from the hairline to the crown, twist 3 or 4 turns and secure it with a pin over the ponytail. Divide off a small section of the hair from the ponytail. Holding the end, twist the hair until it rolls back on itself to form a coil. Position the coil in a loop and secure using hairpins. Continue in this manner, till all the hair can be coiled.

Queen of Braids: Gather a portion of hair at your temple and divide into 3 equal parts. Braid the first 2 turns the normal way. Take a few strands of loose hair from the side of the head and add to the part you are braiding. Continue to take up loose hair and weave into a braid gathering strands alternately from each side. Entwine the parts as you go along. Stop when it reaches the nape of your neck. Repeat the same steps on the other side of your face. Make a simple plait using the two side braids and the loose hair at the centre. Continue braiding till complete.

Honey Bun: Part the hair in the centre in a zigzag style from the forehead to the middle of the crown and then make a high ponytail at the back. Take approximately one third of the hair, from the top of the ponytail, braid till the end, and them secure with an elastic band. Gather the remaining hair of the ponytail and twist it, making sure all loose ends are tucked in. Bring the hair up and around, pinning it underneath to form a bun. Wrap the braid around the bun and secure the ends with a pin underneath. Now, gather the hair in the front and tuck it under the bun at the back, for a perfect finish.

Low Behold!: Part the hair at the centre, from hairline to the middle of the crown. Make a braid on both sides till the ear and secure it. Gather the rest of the hair into a low ponytail at the back. Roll the haif from underneath using two fingers and forma a low bun. Use a net to secure bun in place. Bring the brairded hair towards the ponytail from either sie and overlap or roll over the pony, depending on the length of the hair. Secure it in place with a pin.

Hairstyle Ideas

How to select a suitable hairstyle for you.

Hairstyles: You have to remember that just because you like a certain hairstyle that does not mean it will work for you. Hairstyles depend on the shape of your face and the texture of your hair. If its curly or straight. It all depends on how much maintenance your willing to do.

If you have Straight Hair: Of course we want to have wavy curly hair. You know that jump out of the shower hair. It takes mousse and or gel and a blow dryer. A nice soft perm or a texture perm will help. (How to do a Perm.)

If you have Curly Hair: Weather for example, hot and humid for curly hair spells disaster. Most people I know who have curly hair want it straight. Using the right hair care product in your hair before you blow-dry, is critical.

The right hairstyle begins by the shape of your face

Oval-shaped face

You're lucky - this is the kind of face shape that suits just about any hairstyle. Both long and short hair cuts look great on you, as your face shape is well balanced. The chin and forehead of an oval face shape are in even proportion.

Avoid covering up your perfect face shape with heavy bangs or wearing your hair on your face. You'll lose your face shape and it may add weight to your face.

Round face

Hairstyles with fullness and height at the crown will give the impression of a narrower face. Try a cut with layers while keeping the sides close to your face to make your face appear longer. Round faces suit either short hairstyles swept back from your forehead, or hairstyles that are longer than chin length. Wispy fringes and side parts are also good.

Avoid chin length hair, center parts, fullness at the sides of ears, straight "chopped bangs - these wll all emphasise the shape of your face.

Heart-shaped face
The heart shaped face is widest at the temples and narrowest at the chin, which can appear pointy. Short hair and chin length hair often looks great on this face shape, as the fullness can even out the jaw and chin lines. Chin length bobs, short shags, swept forward layers and wispy bangs all work well.
Avoid full styles that emphasise the upper face without balancing out your narrow chin. Too much height at the crown and tapered necklines will make you look top heavy.

Rectangular, Long face
If your face is long and slender, with your forehead and below cheeks about the same width, hairstyles that balance out the length of your face work best for you. These include short (Short hairstyles) to medium lengths (Medium hairstyles) with fullness at the sides and soft wispy bangs. This will shorten the length and add width to your face. Layered styles work well and add softness to the straight lines of your face.
Avoid too much length, it will only make your face look longer. Too much height will also lengthen your face.

Square face
If your face is square, with a strong, square jaw line and often an equally square hairline, the right hairstyles for you are ones that soften the square look of your face. Short to medium length hair cuts, with soft wispy bangs and a wave or curl will compliment and balance out your straight face shape. If you hair is straight, maybe consider a body wave . Side parts and fullness/height at the crown can add length to your square face shape.
Avoid straight styles - long straight hair, blunt bangs, straight bobs and center parts, as they will emphasise your square jawline.

Triangle face
If you face is triangle, with a wider chin that narrows at the forehead, you want to stick to styles that narrow your chin and widen the forehead. This will balance out your features. Shorter hair can often balance our your prominent jaw line, as well as styles that are full at the temples that taper at the jaw. Off center parts, wedges and shags are also good styles for you. Lots of layers will give you the fullness through the upper part of your face.
Avoid Styles that are full at the jawline and center parts.

Full forehead, long chin
If your forehead is large and your chin long, it can help to add volume below the chin line to balance it out. A thick layered cut or mid-length bob will add fullness where it's needed. Bangs can also reduce the look of a full forehead.

Large features
Full hair can help downplay a large nose or other feature and can help balance out large features. Straight hair, parted down the middle or a long, heavy fringe will make a larger nose seem even more prominent. Subtle highlights in your hair can help by drawing the eye towards the hair and away from the face.

Long or short neck
A long, graceful neck is a beautiful and desireable feature and should be shown off and considered when choosing a hairstyle. Short hair can really show off your neck, however long hair can also add to your already graceful neck when worn in an elegant style, like a twist or updo.
If you want a short hairstyle and your neck is short, create the appearance of length by tapering your hair at the base of the neck and fuller on top.

To get the perfect hairstyle choose the right hair

The easiest and best way to find a new hairstylist is to ask some one you see with a hairstyle that you like while your in the the mall or other stores. Make sure it is someone who has hair similar to yours. I know from experience it is very flattering and no one will mind telling you where he or she goes. Remember be careful of cheap haircutting shops. Remember you get what you pay for!
Another place to look is at actresses and actors are pretty much up to date. The daytime soaps or catalogs. I know for long hair {Victoria Secrets} is very good. Your store catalogs are also a good source. You can buy a hair magazine at your local grocery store with all the latest hairstyles.

What Hair Care Products should you use?

There are lots and lots of hair care products out there, My suggestion is stay away from store bought shampoo and conditioning products. If you want something that works, use professional salon shampoo and conditioner. Also remember you wear your hair everyday. Its worth spending a little extra money on a quality salon shampoo and conditioner. You might spend that money on a shirt you wear maybe once a month, WHY NOT SPEND A LITTLE TO GET A LOT. If your hair looks good you will feel better about yourself

Hairstyling Tools: Tips and Tricks

When you look today at the sheer number of tools and appliances available todayto assist you in styling your hair, it's easy to get confused. What do I need? Will thatwork on my hair? What does THIS thing do? There are dozens of tools designed to helpyou curl, crimp, smooth and straighten your hair. Here are some basics on the toolsavailable, what they're best used for and some tips on how to use them:

Combs and Brushes: Many people still don't understand the basic principles behindthe different comb and brush types available. Here's a quick primer: Wide-toothedCombs are designed to detangle and smooth out towel-dried hair. For best results, use adetangling spray or leave-in conditioner before combing out towel-dried hair. Smaller-toothed Combs are used for smoothing and finishing short or straight hairstyles.
For brushes, the idea is similar but there are more varieties: A Vented Brush has multiplerows of tines (widely-set) along a base with air holes or openings to allow air to circulateeasily. Vented brushes are designed for use with blow-dryers to control the hair duringthe drying process. Round or Curved Brushes have rows of tines on a round or curvedbase and are designed for use in blow-dry styling to add soft curves to the styles.Paddle Brushes have rows of tines on a flat base and are used in blow-dry straightenedstyles to keep the hair smooth and flat. Bristled Brushes can have natural or syntheticbristles and are used for finishing and smoothing a style, or for distributing natural hairoils and massaging the scalp to maintain hair and scalp health.

Blow Dryer: Hand-held hair dryers have become a staple in hair care. These toolsare designed to use directed streams of heated air to dry the hair quickly. A good blow-dryer will come with both a concentrator and a diffuser attachment. The concentratorattachment is designed to further narrow the stream of air, and direct it better. It is usedmost often to bow-dry hair into straighter/smoother styles. The diffuser attachment isdesigned to soften the air stream and distribute the heated air for a gentler flow. Thediffuser is used most often to dry curly hair without straightening the curl.

# 1: When blow-drying the hair, ALWAYS use a good protective conditionerbeforehand.
# 2: Direct the air stream along the hair shaft at an angle toward the ends ofthe hair. This minimizes the risk of the hot air roughing up the cuticle of the hair andleaves the finished style looking smoother.
# 3: Keep the air stream moving and always hold the dryer at least 6-8 inchesaway from the hair. Most incidents of damaged hair from blow-dry styling come as aresult of holding the hair in the heated air stream too long

Hot Rollers: These tools use a combination of heat and/or moisture to change thecurl pattern of the hair. Designed to be used on dry hair, hot rollers work by wrappingsegments of hair around the heated tools, and leaving the tools in place until they cool.One factor that works as a plus for hot rollers is convenience. You can wrap your hair inhot rollers and then continue to get ready while they cool and "set".
Finish dressing, apply your make-up, have breakfast, or do anything you need to while you let the rollers cool. Once cooled, remove the rollers and style your hair as desired.
# 1: Always make sure the hair is wrapped smoothly and held securely in therollers. Good tension in the roller ensures that you get the best curl result.
# 2: A light misting of hairspray on the wrapped rollers will give a little extrahold and "lift" to the curled hairstyle.
# 3: Make certain that your hair is completely dry before using the hot rollersand ALWAYS let the rollers cool COMPLETELY before removing them. Most of theincidents of poor results from using hot rollers come as a result of having still-damp hairbefore using the rollers, or from taking down the rollers before they have completelycooled. Remember heat and moisture will break the side bonds needed to change thecurl pattern of the hair, but they don't get reset into the new curl pattern until the hair isagain cooled and dry.

Curling Irons/Flat Irons: Similar to hot rollers, curling irons and flat irons use heat(and in the case of curling irons, occasionally a little moisture) to change the curl patternof the hair. The main difference is that the curling iron lets you add curl in specific places(the flat iron let's you straighten target sections of the hair).You can style your hair in a myriad of ways and then use the curling iron to add curlsonly where you want them, or use the flat iron to give a smooth sleek finish.Curling irons come in a variety of sizes from tiny, pencil-thin barrels for tight spirals, tolarge barrels for big soft curls. Similarly, flat irons come in varying widths to give finercontrol. Generally, the longer your hair is, the larger the curling iron you want to use.With flat irons, the larger the heating surfaces on the flat iron, the larger the segmentthat can be straightened will be.

Honey & Beauty

Honey contains small amounts of a wide array of vitamins and minerals, including niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc? Along with its multiple vitamin content, honey is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture. And why stop there? Honey also acts as an anti-irritant, making it suitable for sensitive skin and baby care products–and it contains a variety of flavonoids and phenolic acids which act as antioxidants, scavenging and eliminating free radicals.


Honey Cleansing Scrub
Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 2 tablespoons finely ground almonds and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Rub gently onto face. Rinse off with warm water.

Firming Face Mask
Whisk together 1 tablespoon honey, 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon glycerin (available at drug and beauty stores) and enough flour to form a paste (approximately 1/4 cup). Smooth over face and throat. Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

Smoothing Skin Lotion
Mix 1 teaspoon honey with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice. Rub into hands, elbows, heels and anywhere that feels dry. Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse off with water.

Skin Softening Bath
Add 1/4 cup honey to bath water for a fragrant, silky bath.

Hair Shine
Stir 1 teaspoon honey into 4 cups (1 quart) warm water. Blondes may wish to add a squeeze of lemon. After shampooing, pour mixture through hair. Do not rinse out. Dry as normal

sweet honey of a bath formula

Herbalists have praised honey as a beauty aid for centuries with very good reason. It is a terrific humectant–meaning it helps our skin to retain moisture, making it softer and smoother, and rejuvenating our appearance.

When we invite the golden sweetness of honey into our tub, it becomes a skin-nourishing treat for body and soul. Let the bees show you the way to smoother, fresher-looking skin:

2 tablespoons honey
1 cup hot water
2 drops lavender essential oil (optional)

1. Dissolve the honey in the hot water, then add essential oil and stir to mix.

2. Pour mixture into bathwater and soak for 10 to 15 minutes


Every morning, on an empty stomach, half an hour before breakfast, and again at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water.

If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person.

Also drinking of this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body, even though the person may eat a high calorie diet


Take three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it the next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.


Those suffering from hair loss or baldness, may apply a paste of hot olive oil, one tablespoon of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder before a bath and keep it for approximately 15 minutes, and then wash the hair.
It is very effective even if it is kept for 5 minutes as well.


People of South America:
The first thing in the morning they gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water. so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.


Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey, and apply on the aching tooth. This may be done 3 times a day (daily) till such time, that the tooth has stopped aching.


Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon of luke warm honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for 3 days.
This process will cure most chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses

Facial Masks

For trouble-prone skin, mix oatmeal with water to form a paste.

For normal to oily skin, use an egg white.

For dry skin, use an egg yolk.

In all cases, spread mixture on face and allow to dry. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.

For oily skin, witch hazel makes an inexpensive toner.

For dry skin, you may want to add moisturizer while skin is still damp.


For dry skin, try:

an egg yolk mixed with olive oil and warmed honey

sour cream

plain olive oil


For oily skin:

dissolve a teaspoon of baking yeast in a small amount of warm milk, wait until foamy, then apply (best done in the bath tub);

puree flesh of a tomato and mix with some potato flour to make a paste;

cucumber (it will whiten your skin);

beaten egg whites with a few drops of lemon juice (great for getting rid of blackheads);

carrots (but don't use this one more than about every other week because it can overdry your skin). This one will make you look tanned.

Many fruits and vegetables can also be used to good effect. Anything acidic (lemon, strawberries, etc) will tend to whiten and refresh your skin, but you need to be careful if your skin is dry.

In general, don't apply masks more often than about twice a week, and try to vary the ingredients
