Home remedies for common skin problems

Here are five home remedies to deal with common skin problems.

Dark spots & sunburn
Aloe vera is useful for the treatment of dark spots and sunburn. Fresh aloe vera pulp can be used as a face mask daily. The mineral zinc present in this healing plant is anti-inflammatory. To lighten dark spots, mix dried and powdered lemon peel with curd and add a pinch of turmeric. Wash off with water after 20 minutes.

Mix rice powder with curd and use as a facial scrub once or twice a week. Apply only on the affected area and rub gently on the skin with tiny circular movements. Leave on for a few minutes and then wash off with water.

Dry skin
Drink plenty of water and eat yellow and red fruit like mango and papaya, very high in anti oxidant properties.

Mix papaya pulp with yogurt and cucumber. Apply on face and neck three times a week and wash off after half an hour.

Boil neem leaves over a low fire. Cool and strain. Make a paste of the leaves and apply daily on the face. Wash off after half an hour.
