There’s a lot that your skin can tell about you. It shows how old you must be, how you take care of your skin, what are your eating habits and how much water you must be consuming. Your skin is definitely the largest organ or your body and it absorbs literally everything put on it. Hence the dust, dirt, smoke, heat rays seep in and can make your skin look dull and lifeless. Added to that is the process of ageing.

It is easy for human skin to lose its glow in the polluted and unhealthy environment we live in. And while women try to look for every solution to this in the market, they never bother to look for the answers where it’s the most convenient – their homes! So here are a few ways in which you can get a clear and glowing skin, right under your nose.

 

1. Mint

Mint plants have menthol, which gives it the cooling effect. But more than just that, it is also the cleansing which gives you this sensation. If you have pimples, you simply need to apply fresh mint juice over face every night. If you need a full body soother, you can make a paste of mint and lemon juice. Mix this paste with warm water and apply all over your body. Stay like that till it dries, after which you can rinse with warm water.

 It has also been found that mint paste as a face pack is great in treating insect stings, eczema and other similar skin infections.

 

2. Coconut

Did you know that the transparent coconut water of young coconut contains exactly the same mineral content found in human blood? Just imagine what wonders it can do for your skin! Keep your skin blemish free by washing your face with the soothing coconut water.  You can also make a paste of coconut milk and red sandal powder on your skin for a soft and glowing effect.

 

3. Papaya

Papaya is not much known for its properties as a skin care product. The papain enzyme in papayas is known for its wound healing and antibacterial abilities. This enzyme also helps remove dead skin. With a regular application of the papaya juice, you can reduce freckles as well as brown spots which might happen due to prolonged exposure to sunlight.

You can make a useful mask out of papaya. Take ¼ cup ripe papaya, ¼ cup of cocoa, ¼ cup honey, 2 teaspoons of oatmeal powder and 2 teaspoons of cream. Mix all these and apply the paste on your face. Wash face with warm water after 10 minutes.

 

4. Turmeric

This ancient Indian herb has always had sacred significance. Since it is used abundantly by Indians, it is no surprise that the percentage of skin cancer in their country is very low. Turmeric is a fantastic herb for diminishing pigmentation and lightening blemishes. It also has antiseptic properties. If you have dark circles, you should apply a paste of turmeric powder and pineapple juice every day. A mixture of turmeric powder and some teaspoons of sugarcane juice help remove wrinkles. Turmeric powder and sandalwood paste is also great in rejuvenating dry skin.

 

5. Rice Flour

Rice flour is a much used ingredient in treatment of wrinkles, pigmentation and blemishes. Make cleansing milk, using rice flour and 2 tablespoons of non-fat yogurt. You can make a quick rice flour pack with a mixture of ¼ cup of rice flour, 1 tablespoon honey and ¼ cup of milk. Apply on your face and leave it there for 20 minutes. Rinse after that.

To avoid sunburns, the best and most tested way is to abundantly apply sunscreens, stay in shade and make sure you stay out of sun’s UV rays as much as possible. According to recent scientific studies, there is a protein in the body that triggers sunburn pains and there is work done on the cure of this pain with the help of an antibody. But what should we do while this cure is being found?

While there are standard pain-relievers such as aspirin and ibuprofen which can help, there are quite a few natural options too, which can help in such cases. Below are some of the most widely discussed natural sunburn pain relievers:

 

Aloe Vera

You can find tons of aloe vera gels in pharmacies and drug stores for the purpose of soothing sunburn pain. The plant has long been used for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which help in sunburns.

It goes without saying that gel taken freshly out from the plant is much better than products that are available in stores. These manufactured products may have a minimal quantity of aloe vera while going all natural can be quite beneficial.

While aloe vera is not proven to be helpful in speeding up the healing process, it does make your skin feel cooler and that helps in getting relief while the burnt skin heals.

 

Vitamin E & C

There are quite a few health websites that advocate applying Vitamin E oil to sunburns, since they help relieve pain. The vitamin assists in moisturizing the skin. According to science, the vitamins preventatively help diminish effects of sunburns. Since sunburns are due to oxidative damages to the skin cells, the vitamins are good because of the antioxidants in them.

It is preferred to use the vitamins with regularity rather than just a single application.

 

 

Vinegar

One of the most famous homemade remedies for sunburns is taking a vinegar bath, especially if it is apple cider vinegar. While there are varying views on its effectiveness, it is believed that vinegar has the antiseptic nature which should help cool the skin while it evaporates.

In theory, vinegar should help the body maintain its pH levels, which can help in taking away the stinging feeling of the burn.

 

Ice/Cold Showers

If you use only common sense, you would agree that putting something cold on the burns should help relieve the pain. It actually is very true in the case of sunburns. According to experts, using ice and taking cool shows really helps in cooling off the skin and making it feel better.

While placing ice on the burns can be quite helpful, you need to take extra care not to apply too much of it as this might create an “ice burn”
