    • To lighten dark circles under your eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in cheesecloth and apply to eyelids for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off residue and apply an eye cream.




    • Mix together 50 grams dried pea powder, lemon juice, and one pinch of camphor and a little milk. Apply it over the face and leave it for 15 minutes and scrub it off with milk. This is good for treating scars.




    • To cure dandruff soak fenugreek (methi) seeds in yogurt overnight and apply the curd on your scalp for half an hour before washing in the morning.




    • Henna and Indian gooseberry are great for your hair. Powdered and mixed with water or yogurt, they nourish the hair and give it a natural color.




    • If you are allergic to any moisturizer, apply a mashed banana mixed with cream and honey to keep your skin well hydrated. Rinse after 15 minutes.

    • Mix one tablespoon of honey, one tablespoon of orange juice, one tablespoon of fuller's earth and one tablespoon of rose water. Mix well and apply on the face, wash off after 10 minutes.




    • After mashing up well a pineapple slice, mix it with the juice of an orange or a lemon and add all these ingredients with wheat flour. Apply this mixture on the face and neck. Scrub it off after some time, to get fresh and smooth skin




    • Take a cup of raw pureed spinach, and one spoon of fresh cream, mix well all these and apply on the face. Leave it for about half an hour and wash it off to see the charming skin to support your great looks.

    Massage your body with a mixture of coconut oil and some of your favorite essential oils like lavender or rosemary. Your skin, besides smelling heavenly, will acquire a silky and supple quality.

    Mix oatmeal with curd and tomato juice and apply on the face. Keep it on for 20 minutes and then wash it off with cold water. It helps remove the tan and lightens the skin.

    Yoghurt (plain and natural) is a wonderful skin cleanser. It can be used to massage all skin types. Helps treat sunburn.

    To reduce hair loss, massage the scalp and hair with coconut milk or Aloe Vera gel. Leave it for half hour, and then rinse with warm water. Do this thrice a week.

    To cool your eyes, make eye pads using thick slices of cucumber. Another option is to use cotton pads soaked in cold milk. Lie down and place them on your closed eyes and relax for a while.

    Massage your hair and scalp simply with your hand after your daily bath. This will improves blood circulation and prevents hair loss.

    Daily intake of carrot, beetroot and celery juice can keep the skin looking radiant and young.

    Chew some cardamom seeds to sweeten your breath.

    Dried and powdered Bay leaves combined with dried orange peel are excellent whitener for your teeth.

    Apply a grated raw potato as a mask by rubbing the potato on your skin. Leave the mask on for 30 minutes and then rinse off with water. Potatoes help to absorb excess oil in your face and also help to avoid wrinkles.

    To get a good glowing skin, mix fresh tomato juice with few drops of honey. Gently apply this mixture on the sun-exposed areas such as face, neck, etc. Wash it off with cold water after few minutes. Do it twice in a week to get smooth skin.

    Take half grated fresh radish, one spoon of vinegar, one spoon of lemon juice and one spoon of honey. Mix all these ingredients in a glass of distilled water and store in a bottle. Wipe your skin regularly to shrink open pores and reduce greasiness.

    Mix a teaspoonful of turmeric powder with cream, sandal powder, gram flour and make into a paste and apply once a day for about half an hour before a bath. This is an excellent beauty aid to keep the face fresh and soft.

    Apply juice of raw papaya (including the skin and seed) on swelling pimples or acne.
