Natural Oil’s For Skin Care

  • Raw honey (can be used as a mask or even as a gentle face wash — just wet your face with warm water and scoop out a little bit.) Honey prohibits bacteria growth (so it’s a food that truly can keep forever), and has even been proven to speed wound healing partly due to its natural hydrogen peroxide content, which is very cool. I like raw honey especially because it includes the pollen and propolis which are exfoliating, and it hasn’t been heated or filtered, so the full benefits of the honey’s natural state are retained.

Facewash with Raw Honey

  • Lush’s “Angels on Bare Skin” scrub — ground almonds, kaolin clay, and lavender.

  • Coconut oil. Smear it on your face after washing, let it sink in for a bit, then towel off the excess before you head out the door. Also works on cuticles.

  • Argan oil. I bought a little bottle of Argan oil at Whole Foods to use on my cuticles, face and hair. A little goes a long way, and my face didn’t seem to like it, but it’s great for my fingers and for the ends of my hair.Argan oil for skin & hair

Drinking Water Can Help Removing Forehead Wrinkles

I used to have a big Asian skincare routine and I actually found when I simplified it I saw better results. Asian skin care are usually big on hydration and nourishing the skin.

Drinking water and staying hydrated has made the biggest improvement in my Forehead Wrinkles. I can tell immediately if I am dehydrated by the lines in my skin.

While you are right about severe dehydration causing severe symptoms, I wouldn’t so strictly say it has no effect on skin before it has a direct one on your brain.

When you stop drinking water and a body feels a lack of it, it concentrates urine so you’d pee in dark yellow-orange, smelly urine. Next step is to extract water from the body cells… skin included. This is done so you have enough volume of liquid in your veins. And loss of water from brain cells happens as an absolute last measure, when the body can’t do anything to stop it.

There is a test we do, called skin turgor – pinching slightly the skin atop of the back of your hand, or belly. If you’re dehydrated, a kind of lump forms and stays for a second or two. If your not, the skin goes back to the way it was instantly. And this happens way before a person develops any noticeable “brain” symptoms.

So, drink water, folks!

Perfect Skin Care Tips by Various Beauty Bloggers

I am always on the hunt for perfect skin care ideas by beauty bloggers that I’ve never heard. The beauty blogger in me is always up for sharing these insights with other beauty lovers. Check out these beauty tips by bloggers following me. If you have any beauty idea that can help my readers, please share it via comment box below.

#1. How to get rid of blackheads:- Blackheads are tricky. They come from dirt getting into open pores. Best thing you can do is go get extractions ( washing your face, steam it then use a metal stick to poke out each black head) then start using a proper toner and moisturizer.

If you don’t want to get extractions, use a good exfoliate once a week, followed by a mud mask. It should open up your pores then detoxify them.

#2. How to make skin lighter:- Use an exfoliating oil-free cleanser, astringent toner , vitamin c dark spot removing serum (for evening and brightening your skin-tone), an oil-free moisturizer and follow with an oil-free sunscreen. Make sure you use a more abrasive exfoliate once a week to even out your skin tone.

#3. How to get rid of blemish spot after acne:- Scaring is very common after acne, try a vitamin C serum, and make sure you always use sunscreen since the sun will make them worse.

#4. A good body moisturizer :- With body moisturizers you can use most things, try to get something with Vitamin E and Argan Oil. You have to like the texture of what you’re using, so make sure you feel it first.

#5. When to use accutane:- Are you VERY oily? If so you can use accutane. It will make your skin dry and dehydrated, so make sure you use a hydrating enough moisturizer and something like midnight recovery concentrate to balance out your moisture barrier.

#6. Good weekly regimen to take care of eczema on face:- Don’t exfoliate using a physical exfoliant, get something that exfoliates on a chemical level, or something fruit enzyme based. This will gently remove the dead skin without scrubbing and irritating further. Use a very gentle cleanser without alcohol, a milky toner, and a hydrating moisturizer. If you want to go in further send me a message and I’ll give you an exact list of products I would recommend.

#7. How to get rid of scars because of chicken pox:- Are you oily? For the scaring use a vitamin c serum for dark spots. Use an oil free cleanser and lotion, that should help with your excess oiliness. Also if the scarring is also texture and not just discoloration, make sure you’re using an abrasive scrub once a week.

#8. How to get rid of sunburn:– Aloe vera is pretty much the best thing that you can do, also shea butter is great for that kind of thing.

#9. How to get rid of stretchmarks:- Stretchmarks can never be removed by beauty products. You can prevent them by using a hydrating body moisturizer. But strechmarks are a white scar, so lack of pigment. Laser is the only treatment. Sorry.

#10. Improve Skin Elasticity:– Using a serum. Something with hylaronic acid is great.

#11. How to get rid of yeast :-  Use a non-scented cleanser because yeast can oftan spawn from over perfumed products. Make sure you shower as soon as you can after sweating.

#12. How to correct thinning hair:– This is tough. That’s a genetic issue, there are scalp treatments that help to create a good environment for hair growth. But if your mother’s father is bald, you probably will be too.  If you use a lot of hair gels, try to give your scalp time to breath, that can also cause thinning.

I’d love to see more ideas and comments on these skin care tips…

Routine Skin Care Need To Be Done Twice A Day

1) The broken skin: Apply a layer of polysporin or neosporin (topical cream that promotes rapid healing) on your face three times a week (I recommend doing it in the evening) until the skin heals – space it out.skin care 2) Wash with a mild cream cleanser every morning and evening, not a bar soap, not anything with bursting beads or grains, a cream cleanser with salicylic acid, Clearasil makes some really great ones.skin cream   3) Once all open wounds have healed begin acne cream, benzoyl works for some people but a sulfur based cream will be more effective, again, Clearasil makes this. Use the acne cream only once a day, again I suggest in the evening so it has time to sink in over night.skin care cream2 4) You need to moisturise son! Your face is fucking dry, so get a gentle oil free moisturiser, one made for acne prone skin (make sure this doesn’t have acne fighting products in it however). Use this at least four mornings a week but also use your discretion, four times a week may be too often.skin care cream 5) Don’t touch your face.skin care cream1 6) Sunscreen all the time, because acne treatment will make your skin more susceptible to sun burns.skin care creams 7) Your skin will never be 100% clear, but neither does it have to be this bad. skin care cream3 8) If you miss washing your face one day don’t panic, and don’t double up on products the next day either.skin care cream4 9) If your moisturiser, cleanser, cream, etc… doesn’t seem to be working (and give it at least four weeks before arriving at that conclusion) switch it up. Try a different brand.skin care cream5

Things to Keep in Mind While Using Argan Oil For Hair Treatment

If you’re thinking about an organic natural hair oil for hair problems, and you want to smooth or soften your hair, I give pure argan oil a thumbs-up.

A few tips while using argan oil for best results:

  • Argan oil is sensitive to light, so the bottle should be dark (and kept in a dark place)
  • it is also sensitive to heat. It should not be heated after or during processing, since this breaks down some of the substances responsible for its effects. You want cold-pressed.
  • Argan oil intended for cooking isn’t going to work as well for hair or skin, since the seeds are toasted before being ground up. It’ll have a much stronger smell and be heavier.
  • You only need a teeny-tiny bit. My hair falls just past my shoulders and I use about four or five drops (and rub the excess into my cuticles).
  • You can apply it before a shower (give it an hour or so) or after. If it weighs your hair down, I would apply it before so you can rinse out excess.
  • Be careful if you are trying to go ‘cone free: lots of products that advertise argan oil as a solution for frizziness include silicones as well.

Apparently this stuff has a very high proportion of fatty acids that are particularly good for hair (linoleic and linolenic fatty acids). I’m still checking out the properties of other oils but argan seems to hold up pretty well against other popular ones like shea butter and coconut oil.
