Natural Homemade facial mask:

Just follow these 10 simple steps for your own facial care and get amazing results.

Tie up your hair before starting.

Use both hands to hold warm water, spread the water evenly over your face. Then gently massage your face. Repeat this several times. Let the air dry your face. Do not use a towel.

When the water is running off your face and your face is drying naturally, put Vitamin E (oil form) or baby oil on your face.

Let the oil (Vitamin E oil or baby oil) seep into your facial skin for five minutes. Then, repeat step one, **except** use a mild soap to clean off the oil from your face.

When your face is clean, cup both hands and fill with room temperature tap water. Splash on your face. Do not rub. Let your face air dry. Repeat 3 times.

Take 1 egg white (use carefully in case of salmonella) or a similar amount of fresh pure aloe vera juice; 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil; and 1 teaspoon of pure apple juice. Put contents into a clean bowl, and mix them evenly to create your own natural face mask. Once blended, your natural mask is now ready for use. [Note: you can enhance the effectiveness of the mask by adding 1/4 teaspoon of pure pearl powder to the mixture. Pearl powder has a long history throughout Asia and in Traditional Chinese Medicine for making the skin softer, smoother, and more elastic. Only 100% pure pearl powder works. Pure pearl powder is available at emperorsherbologist.com] Once you are finished blending the ingredients together, wet 2 clean cotton balls, or you can use 2 pieces of fresh cut cucumber. Set them aside for later use.

Dip both hands into your natural facial mask and apply the mask to your skin. [Note: The best method to use to apply the mask is to start from your chin and apply bottom to top inside to outside making sure to skip the eyes and mouth area.] For the nose area, apply the mask solution from the upper part of the nose to lower part following the nose line.

ADVERTISEMENT

Now it is time to relax. Go ahead, lay down on your back with your face up. Put a towel under your head to catch any of the mask than runs. Cover your eyes with cucumber or the wet cotton balls.

Wait 15 minutes to 1/2 hour. Make sure the mask is entirely dry. Once you are sure the mask is dry, cup both hands to hold warm water, spread the water evenly over your face. Then gently massage your face. Repeat this several times. Let the air dry your face. Do not use a towel.

Try this and you will find that your face will feel very fresh and look younger. Do this twice a week, and you can have a much younger looking face all the time.

Hi, Gold being one of the softest metals, is early absorbed into the skin and influences it at the cellular level. It stimulates lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. This in turn facilitates the removal of toxin and wastes and accelerates the regeneration of healthy new cells. Gold makes the skin more resilient and youthful. http://mysite.verizon.net/vze4rkn4/…

You can do manicure and pedicure at home.

When you need to do manicure or pedicure at home, it is very important to have knowledge of it in general, and the requirements in particular. If you feel the need of a system of manicure / pedicure and wandering, then the following mentioned system would be of great help to you. So for creating a perfect manicure / pedicure system at home, you will need the followings: * 1 pack of cotton balls * 1 polish remover * 1 emery board * 1 nail trimmer * 1 cuticle remover * 1 bottle fingernail polish * 2 toe separators * A couple of paper towels

Now you definitely would be interested to know, how the abovementioned items will help you in doing manicure / pedicure.

Nail polish removing:

Take cotton balls as many as you need them, soak each finger well with nail polish remover, so that your fingernails true color start appearing. Use a very less quantity of nail polish remover to remove the nail polish. Since nail polish is extremely drying, never soak the nail in it, especially the cuticle. Keep the good contacts of your nails with the nail polish.

Soaking and removing cuticles:

Your cuticle is like a fore skin. It is found at the bottom of your nail, where finger nail cartilage and skin meets. To remove cuticle, soak your nail in warm water for 3 minutes or less. Now use cartilage remover to push the cuticle down.

Trimming your fingernails:

To trim out toenails, use nail clippers. To reshape or shorten nails, simply use nail clippers. If your nails are hard, soak them in water before trimming. If you have soft nails, do not trim after bathing or washing, because in doing so you may cause damage, which sometime may lead to infection. Do not cut too short toenails, because doing so increase the chances of developing ingrown toenails.

Filling Nails:

Use emery board to make your fingernails smooth and good looking. You can use emery board to smoothen the ends of your fingernails. Do not use emery board to scrap your natural nail surface at all. This will make the nails surface rough.

Exfoliating & Moisturizing Hands and Feet:

Now use sugar wash to massage your feet, legs, arms and feet. Rinse your hands first and then use pumice stone to rub away callus and other rough surfaces on the bottom of your feet. Now, rinse the scrub of your feet and legs. Now, use moisturizer or some other soothing cream for your hands and feet that may heal a cracked and roughdry skin.

Polishing Nails:

Remove excess moisturizer using polish remover. Polish your nails and dry them between coats, preferably minimum of four coats. If you have weak or brittle nails, place one or two coats of ridge filling nail polish on the nail as base coat to shore up the nail. Two coats of a colored nail polish are next, followed by a topcoat to add luster. Use foam toe separators to fingers, while polishing. Allow drying the polish.

2. Natural Facial masks for normal and olily skins:

Care of Normal Skin:

• Using Milk

Procedure: Take some raw milk in a bowl and heat it just enough to make it tepid. Dip cotton swab in this tepid milk and rub on face, hands, neck for about 10 min. Wait for 20 min after application. Thereafter wash with lukewarm water. Above procedure is to deep clean your skin.

Care of Oily Skin

1. Using Milk & Lemon:

Procedure: In a glass bowl, take about 10 teaspoons raw (not boiled) milk and squeeze juice of half medium sized lemon. You should see milk curdling. If not, add more lemon juice till you see milk curdling. Gently using your hands or cotton, rub the above preparation on your face and hands. After application, let it dry for about 15 min or till you start to feel stretch in your skin on drying. Then wash your face and hands with lukewarm water. This will make your skin soft and give it a glow. Using a cotton swab, you can apply this cleanser on your neck also before bath.

2. Using Cucumber & Lemon:

Procedure: Grate cucumber and squeeze out about 1 ounce of juice from the grated cucumber into a glass bowl. Add 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon rosewater to it. Stir nicely. Using cotton swabs apply gently on face and neck. Leave it for about 30 min. Wash with lukewarm water first and then with cold water.

Home Manicure:

1. Remove old nail polish with a single stroke by soaking a cotton wool pad with nail polish remover. Wipe away traces of polish around the cuticles stick dipped in remover.

2. Using an emery board, shape nails lightly, working from both edges towards the center. Avoid moving the board back and forth quickly, which produces heat that dries out the nail and leads to splitting. Try holding the emery board at a single angle under the nail. Don’t file down the sides- the nail tip needs the sides as support, otherwise it will weaken and nicks form.

3. Apply a cuticle remover around the nail contours. Using the tip of a cuticle stick wrapped in cotton wool, gently push back the skin. Work away dead tissue before carefully passing the stick under cuticles.

4. Wash your hands in warm soapy water, and brush nails with a soft manicure brush so that polish will adhere to them properly. Pat hands dry with a towel.

5. If nails are weak, apply a strengthening or hardening product, paying special attention to the tips. Allow to dry.

6. Apply a protective base coat, covering the entire nail but stopping short of the cuticle.

7. Apply two coats of polish, starting with a single stroke down the center of the nail, then across the cuticle base and down the two sides without touching the cuticle. Allow each coat to dry.

8. Finish with a topcoat for extra gloss and the shield against chipping.

For optimum skin and nail health, check that your diet includes plenty of vitamin A, E and B complex, and the minerals calcium, Zinc, magnesium and iodine. If need be, take nail-fortifying vitamin and minerals supplements.

Hope, you enjoy giving yourself manicure at home. Any suggestions or comment are welcome. You may send them by using the form at the bottom of this page.

Home Pedicure:

Pedicures at the salon are great and you should try to have them sometimes, but when it is not possible, the Lindisima version of a mini spa pedicure is ideal. It will take about 25 minutes or less and your feet will look great and feel even better.

You will need: Great attitude - this is a time for you 25 minutes A nail file of high quality A feet file A plastic or glass bowl big enough for a foot bath with warm water Cotton balls 2 tablespoons of sugar 5 table spoon of oil, and optional 3 drops of essential oil or lemon juice.

A orange stick Nail polish remover 2 fluffy towels and a 2 small towels Optional: nail polish of your preferred color and color base if you are using a strong color (this will take additional time) hand or body lotion and oil (it can be body oil or a light vegetable oil such as olive or sunflower) A nail cutter

Steps 1- Identify a good place to get your pedicure; it has to have a a comfortable chair. Place all the ingredients and tools next to it. Place one of the towels on the floor 2- Mix 5 tablespoons of oil, essential oil or lemon juice and sugar 3- Prepare the foot bath with warm water, 4 tablespoons of oil. Place on the towel (the one you have put on the floor) 4- Wet the 2 small towels and put in the microwave so they get hot, then place them in a plastic bag for future use. 5- Pedicure time. Eliminate any nail polish you may have 4- Cut your nails and file them to your desire shape 5- Put your feet into the water and let them be there for 10 minutes (at least 5 minutes if you do not have time) 6- Now push your cuticles with the orange stick 7- Apply the scrub on your feet. Make sure every area is treated. 8- Wash it out with the foot bath water, dry the feet and move the foot bath to the side. 9- Gently apply some oil or cream to the nail and massage the cuticles 10- Wrap the towel around your hands and leave it on for 3 to 5 minutes or until they are not warm any more. 11- Get your feet file and pass it on the rough areas. If you are not applying polish, you are done; if not 12- Apply the base coat (transparent nail polish) wait for a minute or 2 and apply one coat of you color, wait 3 minutes and apply second coat.

Dear Anonymous, For a perfect skin: Orange yoghurt mask: Mix 1 tablespoon of yoghurt to with the juice of 1/4 of orange. Apply the mixture smoothly on the face. It will have a relaxing and refreshing feeling. Leave it for 5 mins and then rinse it off. The orange is full of vitamin c and yoghurt will cleanse and refresh your skin. Almost all fruits and vegetables are good for skin. They can be applied as a mask too. You can use papaya mask. Grind the papaya or mash the papaya and apply it on your face. It is good for any skin condition. Raddish is good for sun burns and to remove any black spots in the face. Take the juice of raddish and apply on the affected areas.
