        the pores on the tip of your nose are also cleansed, therefore preventing acne and blackheads. You should massage your
        damp skin, especially the oily region and leave it for a few seconds, then wash your face with water. This process helps in
        removing the dirt from your skin.

       You should always use a cream cleanser in the evening time regularly in order to keep the dry areas of your skin clean
        and smooth.

       You should use two different toners, each having different strength. For the dry area of your skin, use a mild skin
        freshener and for the oily areas use a strong astringent. Using these will make you feel fresh.

       You should apply moisturizer all over your face, especially on the dry areas. Then with a help of a tissue you can blot the
        excess oil from your skin.



       Even though the remainder of your face is prone to oiliness, always remember that the skin around your eyes is very
        delicate, so don’t drag at it when removing your eye makeup. Soak a cotton wool pad with a non oily remover and hold
        over your eyes for a few seconds to give it time to dissolve the make up. Then lightly stroke away the mascara and make -
        up from the eyelids, and the upper and lower lashes.

       Lather up with a gentle facial wash, as it won’t strip away moisture from your skin, but it will remove grime, dirt and oil.
        Massage gently over damp skin with your fingertips, and then rinse away the soapy suds with lots of warm water.

       Soak a cotton wool ball with a refreshing astringent lotion. Sweep it over your skin to refresh and cool it .Continue until the
        cotton wool comes up completely clean.

       Even oily skin needs moisturizer, because a moisturizer helps to seal water into the top layer to keep the skin soft and
        supple. Choose a light, watery fluid as this will be enough for you.

       Allow the moisturizer to sink in for a few minutes, and then press a clean tissue over your face to absorb the excess oil
        and prevent a shiny complexion.

The following tips mentioned below are effective in providing a safeguard for sensitive skin.

      you can use the method of diluting in order to weaken the amount of harmful chemicals and dyes that are present in these
      products.
      Here are some suggestions:

           o      Add a tablespoon of baking soda and half the amount of shampoo that you use to rinse off waxy buildup from
                  hair conditioners.

           o      Adding baking soda to your laundry that is not stained can reduce that required amount of detergent by up to
                  50%.

           o      Dilute your shampoo by using only half the amount and adding water as the other half.

      and those that offer the most protection against irritating factors.

How to bring back the glow is the question foremost on the minds of most men and women
considering getting a facial done. The best facial is one that constitutes use of natural ingredients
because they contain all of the essential vitamins that the skin needs and are able to revitalize it
without the worry of harsh chemical additives that can affect the balance of the skin. Below are
the different face facial tips:

      Choosing a facial mask requires one to pay keen attention to the skin type and purchase a
       facial mask in accordance with the skin’s needs. These few minutes dedicated to finding
       the right kind of facial mask is what will spell the difference for the freshened and
       revitalized look to your face.

       not be done too frequently as this can endanger the ph balance of your skin.
      Applying a facial mask should be restricted to a weekly procedure and correspond to your
       skin type to ensure the most positive beautifying effect to your face.

Homemade Eye beauty tips
Your Eyes and Overall Health

If you’re a romantic or like to read fiction and poetry, you’ll have memorized and appreciated
the saying, “the eyes are the windows to your soul.” But your eyes are also a good barometer of
your overall health. We’re not just talking about the state of your eyes predicting cataracts and
glaucoma; we’re talking about them being harbingers of diseases like diabetes and
cardiovascular disease.

Doctors say that ocular manifestations of health are really best interpreted by experts, which
means that you should get an eye examination as regularly as you get a physical: at least once a
year. If you have bloodshot eyes, or suspect that not everything looks normal or standard, then
it’s time to consult your eye doctor and schedule an appointment. Regardless, everyone should
have a comprehensive eye exam by the time they are 40 years of age to ensure that their eyes and
overall health are in good order. Problems such as Conjunctivitis. (Pinkeye), bloodshot eyes,
bulging eyes or droopy eyelids suggest much deeper, bigger issues. For instance, a bloody eye
could not only mean harmless hemorrhaging of the tiny bloodshot vessels that are on the outer
layer of the eye, but also severe blood pressure. A droopy eyelid may mean a brain tumor.
Yellow discoloration in the eyes may indicate that some malfunction in the liver such as hepatitis
and cirrhosis.

How to Nourish Your Eyes If You Wear Contact Lenses

If you are a contact lens wearer, then opt for the Daily Acuvue™ variety that allow your eyes to
breathe; the daily lenses provide superior hydration as well. There is now a breakthrough Acuvue
contact lens technology called Hydraclear® that moisturizes your eyes thoroughly and provides
ample lubrication throughout the day. Dryness of the eye is a consistent complaint of contact lens
wearers and Hydraclear may be the answer. Furthermore, this technology allows three times
more oxygen to the corneal area.

General Nutrition for Your Eyes

The eyes, just like your body, need adequate amounts of proper nutrients and vitamins in order to
perform optimally. If you have dry eyes, you may want to increase your consumption of flaxseed
and fish oil that contain dietary fatty acids. You can also increase the use of lubricating eye
drops, (we recommend the Rohto brand). Fish oil and cod liver oil are popular supplements and
you can pretty much find them everywhere. In general, good nutrition for the body will translate
into good nutrition for the eyes. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat milk will help your
eyesight. In particular, lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts are definitely linked to
good vision.

Eyes and Vitamins

In the vitamin department, studies have shown that Vitamins C, E and A, and zinc and copper are
excellent for eye health. Chances are that you’ve heard about the connection between eating a lot
of carrots and good eyesight. Carrots are rich in Vitamin A, and this is also necessary for night
vision and bolstering the immune system. Carotenoids give this vegetable their characteristic
orange pigment, and in addition to providing color to vegetables and fruit, they act as
antioxidants. Your body naturally converts certain carotenoids into Vitamin A. Carrots are not
the only vegetable to contain essential Vitamin A: other supplements like lutein and zeaxanthin
contain Vitamin A that is beneficial for sight as well. Omega-3 essential fatty acids give
excellent nutrition to the eyes and also reduce the risk of dry eyes.

Vitamin A plays such an important role in your eye health that it may make sense to understand
why. The vitamin prevents night blindness and also dryness of the eyes, corneal ulcers and
swollen eyelids. Vitamin A is also thought to be a good prevention to cataracts and acts to
prevent macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is thought to be the leading cause of
blindness.

Cataracts
The human eye is like a camera that collects, focuses, and transmits light through a lens to create
an image of its surroundings. A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects such
vision. The vision dims because the cataract prevents light from passing beyond the lens and
focusing on the retina. Most cataracts are related to aging and are very common among the old.

General Eye Care Tips

As we have seen, getting some decent shut-eye, avoiding smoking, wearing eye protection
(particularly during the summer) and eating responsibly will give you a much healthier pair of
eyes. If you wear contact lenses make sure that your prescription is always up to date. Outdated
prescriptions can give you headaches and migraines, and can even ruin your sight. Make sure
you keep your annual eye appointment and hydrate your eyes accordingly with the proper drops
or saline solution. Prevention is better than cure, especially when it comes to your sight. A lot of
prevalent eye diseases can be held at bay through common sense and healthy habits. Treat your
“windows to the soul” well and they will reward you with good sight for many years to come.

If you want your eyes to be attractive, keep yourself healthy. When you have good health, the
eyes will have natural shine and there will be glow. Take food full of proteins and vitamins.
Food with vitamin-A is specially beneficial. Take a lot of green vegetables apricot, plum, date
and carrot too. Take half a lemon in warm water, an hour before your breakfast, it is very
beneficial.
