Papaya and Its Benefits

papaya-and-its-benefitsIt’s stacked with papain and vitamin A. The catalyst papain separates dormant proteins and disposes of dead skin cells. The vitamin A fills in as an against oxidant.

Its best property is that it contains low sodium amount. As the salt substance is less, the water maintenance is additionally little. This prompts a general hydrated skin.

Following are the Papaya benefits for skin :

1. It is a good source of vitamin A, so it works as a great anti-oxidant on skin.

2. Its higher papain levels make it an excellent natural exfoliant. It helps in removing dead skin cells.

3. Papaya helps in preventing premature aging and has anti-cancerous and anti-inflammatory properties.

4. The AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids) act to break down proteins and dissolve the dead skin cells. That is why many exfoliating skin products contain AHAs. Papain has similar properties and is found in abundance in Papaya. So, papaya acts as a natural, plant-based alternative to chemical exfoliants.  Massage papaya on your face. Let it stay there for 5 minutes and rinse your face with lukewarm water and finally with cool water. Papaya is an acidic fruit, so don’t let the papaya sit on your face for more time, as it can cause dryness and might irritate your skin.

5. Since, green papaya is a rich source of papain; you can use papaya for skin whitening.

6.  Papaya works as a great skin-firming and anti-aging agent. Mash papaya and apply on your face with or without milk. It helps in removing blemishes, dark spots and provides an even tone to your skin.

7. Blend papaya with honey to make a nourishing, hydrating and skin-brightening face mask.

8. Does Papaya lighten skin: Yes you can use papaya for skin whitening.  Here is a skin lightening Papaya Mask for you:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup green papaya, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon plain yogurt

Blend the above ingredients thoroughly into a smooth paste. Massage gently the paste onto a little damp face and leave it there for 10-15 minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water and finally with cool water. The green papaya has more amount of papain, so it’s more effective in lightening your skin. But green papaya tingles on your face. On the other hand a ripe papaya does not tingle but it contains less papain as compared to green papaya.

Coffe Face Scrub and Its Benefits

coffe-face-scrubThe inner components take longer time to get altered and once in a while can’t be dealt with unless the hidden ailment is cured. Then again the outer components are anything but difficult to settle. On the off chance that you know which of the dry hair causes is the guilty party for your situation, it would turn out to be anything but difficult to treat dry hair. Simply concentrate on trimming back the exercises that are creating dry hair. Switch the hair items you are utilizing, wear a top while swimming, cover your hair while going out in the sun for expanded periods and take after the simple home cures delineated here beneath for dry hair.

Which salt to use? – It’s all personal preference. Though, sea salt has a lot of benefits – I prefer using epsom salts to other salts for making scrubs as I always have it around to treat my sports injuries. It restocks your magnesium levels that helps relieve stress, alleviate pain, and get rid of toxins.

I also use sugar in this coffee facial scrub to help exfoliate dead skin cells. Whereas, caffeine in the coffee grounds helps reducing redness, cinnamon, on the other hand, does the opposite. However, you need to be careful while adding cinnamon to the mix. Some people are sensitive to its use and it can leave their face looking a little too red. I love using the cinnamon as it is a face plumper, so it helps smooth out fine lines on my face, brings blood and oxygen to the skin’s surface – so beneficial for skin conditions such as acne, pimples and eczema. It also provides you with a tingly clean feeling, which is no doubt refreshing.

So, this scrub for your face is packed with lots of skin friendly ingredients! And plus point is you are aware of all of the ingredients being used while making it at home, which is a relief these days, when you can hardly pronounce most of ingredients displayed on the labels affixed on store-bought beauty products.

How Often To Use This Scrub: Use this scrub about once a week, particularly if you have naturally oily skin. In case you have real dry skin, skip the cinnamon.

Coffee Face Scrub Recipe

You will need:

  • Coffee: 1 cup, grounded
  • Epsom salt: 1/3 cup
  • Sugar: ½ cup, brown
  • Cinnamon: 1 tea spoon (optional, skip this if your skin is sensitive)
  • Olive oil: 1 cup, extra virgin (or coconut oil)

Method:

  • Pour the salt into a bowl. If the salt is thick, use a pestle or the back of a large spoon to gently crush them into smaller granules to be suitable for a smoother facial scrub.
  • Add in the coffee grounds, brown sugar and oil. Mix well the ingredients together using a spoon and stir until evenly combined.
  • Transfer the mixture to a sealable air-tight jar.
  • Use in the morning, once a week (I use it on weekends) as part of your normal beauty care regime, scooping out about 2 tablespoons of the scrub and scrubbing your face with it. Rinse out the oil well with lukewarm water; finish with cold water splash to close the skin pores.

Natural Beauty Tips

natural-beautyYou don’t need harsh chemicals—or tons of time—to get shiny, healthy hair and smoother skin. Just steal these gentle, back-to-basics moves to start looking your best.

No more frizz

Fight frizz with alcohol-free moisturizing stylers like Aveeno Nourish+ Style Soft-Hold Gel-Crème, “Well-hydrated hair can’t take in additional moisture from the air, so it doesn’t frizz,” says stylist Dickey, founder of Hair Rules.

Strengthen hair with a mayo mask (its cholesterol plumps the cuticle, Rusk stylist Sean James says): comb 1/2 cup mayo through wet hair, wait 15 minutes, and rinse with cool water; shampoo as usual.

Strong and sleek

Add shine by distributing a few drops of Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum throughout damp hair. The star ingredient, organic argan oil, makes strands glossy but won’t weigh them down.

Prevent breakage in chemically treated hair by applying a rich, protective styling cream before you use hot tools. One to try: SoftSheen-Carson Roots of Nature Strengthening Oil Moisturizer, which contains green tea and shea butter.

Iron-free curls

Make curls soft and touchable by raking a palmful of TRESemmé Naturals Lightweight Mousse** with organic orange extracts throughout damp hair. Let tendrils air-dry without touching them for a frizz-free finish, suggests Mara Roszak, an L.A.–based celebrity stylist.

Create tousled waves with this trick from stylist John Masters: dissolve 1 tablespoon sea salt in a spray bottle filled with 8 ounces warm spring water, then add 10 drops of organic lavender oil; shake well, then spritz on damp hair and let it air-dry.

Hair helpers

Treat your parched strands to a hydrating mask with all-natural olive oil. Try paraben-free, silicone-freeL’Oréal Professionnel Série Nature Masque aux Huiles.

Preserve your hair color by avoiding shampoos that contain sulfates. “They’re a form of detergent that can fade color or make it brassy,” according to cosmetic chemist Alec Batis. Try Back to Basics Blue Lavender Color Protecting Shampoo.

Bronzed and beautiful

Get bronzed without the sun—or self-tanners. Mix 1 teaspoon organic sunscreen and a pinch of loose mineral bronzer in your palm, then blend it over your face for an instant (protective!) glow. Try Coola Face SPF 30 and bareMinerals All-Over Face Color

To firm your jaw, neck, and throat, yoga expert and instructor Annelise Hagen suggests doing this “Kiss the Ceiling” move every day: slowly tilt your head back, pucker up, and try to kiss the ceiling; repeat 4 times.

Moisturizers and face masks

Stay protected by applying a moisturizer with black tea extract before sunscreen; studies show the ingredient decreases the effect of UV radiation on skin and may help prevent sunburns. We like Juara Sweet Black Tea & Rice Facial Moisturizer.

Make a facial mask more effective by applying it in the shower, where steam opens pores so ingredients can penetrate. Smooth Sanítas Skincare Papaya Pineapple Mask  over your face halfway through your shower, then rinse before you get out.

Fresh faced

For a radiant complexion slice a few grapes in half and rub the cut sides over clean skin. “The fruit acids are natural exfoliators,” explains Regine Berthelot, head aesthetician at the Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza in New York City.

Wake up tired, puffy eyes with a chilled eye cream (store yours in the fridge). Apply it from the outer corners of your eyes toward your nose. “This helps drain excess fluid in the area,” says Annet King, director of global education at Dermalogica.

Zap blemishes with two ingredients homeopaths have used for centuries: anti-inflammatory arnica and antibacterial tea tree oil. Find them in Nelsons Pure & Clear Acne Treatment Gel.

 

Caring Foot Tips

Foot consideration is all the more so critical for individuals with diabetes as they have an expanded danger of diseases, particularly in their feet. On the off chance that cuts and wounds get contaminated, the curing turns out to be extremely muddled. To keep away from all these, take after foot care tips. Common excellence tips bring for you “best of bests” family foot care tips that make your feet lovely as well as will keep them generally casual and sound also.

# Signs of un-hygiene feet:  Check your feet often. Look for cuts, cracks, redness, blisters, swelling, change of color or any sign of trauma. Use a mirror to look at all areas of bottoms of your feet.

# Washing: Wash your feet daily with look warm soapy water. Dry your feet thoroughly. Make sure to dry with a towel especially between the toes also. A best exercise is to put some marbles in the bath water and roll your feet around on the top of them to stimulate the nerve endings. This is a good natural foot care tip.

Toenails: Trim your toenails straight across and then smooth the edges with an emery board or a nail file each week or when needed. Trim your toenails after bath or shower as they are soft at that time and easy to cut.

# Corns and Calluses: Total Foot care tips require that you take care of dead skin that forms at the pressure points such as heels, toes and bony areas of your feet. They are common, if you wear sandals or flip-flops due to the repeated friction of your feet at certain points when you move around.    Use a pumice stone or a foot file to smooth corns and calluses after bath or shower. Do not use sharp objects to remove them. You can also apply some over-the-counter creams that contain lactic acid to hydrate and exfoliate your dead skin. Avoid medicated corn and callus removal pads, as they can burn your skin and aggravate the problem. For harder cases, consult your podiatrist as he may prescribe some stronger moisturizing lotions.

Selection of foot wear:  A good foot care tip is to make sure that your shoes fit with sufficient room to twist your toes. When you buy shoes, get your feet measured while standing and not sitting and preferably later in the day when the feet are a bit swollen. The size and shape of your feet change with age due to daily pressure and pregnancy. Before you put on shoes, look for any foreign objects inside such as gravel as that can cause irritation or sores. Wear comfortable shoes that have smooth lining and fit well. Wear clean well-fitting cotton socks.

Dead cells: While washing your feet, scrub them, especially the heels, with a foot scrubber regularly. This is good for removing the dead cells and keeps your feet soft.

Massage: Give a massage to your feet once in a week.  Add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to your massage lotion for a sensational treat to your feet.

In grown toe nail: This is a condition when the edge of your nail grows into surrounding skin fold. To avoid this, try trimming your toenails straight across, rounded corner on the edge of the nail may grow into the skin. Avoid wearing restrictive footwear. If painful, to treat ingrown toenail soak your affected foot in Epsom salt bath for twenty minutes twice a day. This will reduce inflammation. If the pain does not go away or when there is swelling, see your podiatrist as you may be having infection.

#  Avoid too hot or too cold: Keep bath water at moderate temperature. As in case of neuropathy patient, they may not be able to feel even if the water is too hot and they may burn their skin. Also never use heating pads. On the other hand do not use too cold water either. Prolonged cold can decrease blood circulation even more.

Keep your feet hydrated: Before you retire for the day, wash your feet and dry them thoroughly. The skin on the soles of your feet does not have any oil glands. So to keep them soft, apply moisturizer or glycerin especially at the heels every night and pull on a pair of cotton socks before you sleep. Make sure to not apply moisturizer between the toes. Another good foot care tip.

# Blood circulation: Keeps the blood flowing to your feet.  While sitting at home, put your feet up. Wiggle your toes and twist your feet 3 -4 times in a day. While sitting, don’t cross your legs for longer periods of time, as it limits circulation of blood.

Prevent smelly feet: Closed shoes and sweaty feet cause strong foul odor.  If you have smelly feet, wear sandals for air flow, whenever feasible. Avoid wearing same shoes two days in a row, so that they get chance to dry out. You can spray Lysol in your shoes to kill bacteria that cause odor.

Prevent cracked and itchy skin: Sometimes you may get peeling, cracked and itchy skin, especially between the toes. This is a fungal infection. If you leave it untreated, it will spread to your nails. Try a good over-the-counter antifungal spray or cream. If the infection persists, consult your doctor, who will prescribe an oral anti-fungal medication.

Last but not the least : Although the above foot care tips will take care of your feet, but it is recommended that when you go to your doctor next time, get a check on your bare feet.  Sometimes you may not have any injury or feel a pain, but a doctor can see if there is any indication of your developing a foot problem.  And in case if you notice a cut, blister, sore or bruise that does not begin to heal after one day you must consult a doctor.

# Natural Beauty Tips for Foot Care

(i) Homemade  Foot Care Soak: Fill a tub with warm water. Squeeze two/three lemons and add the lemon juice into water.  Also add two-three spoons of Cinnamon powder, two table spoon of olive oil and half cup of milk into water and mix well. Soak your feet in the water for ten to fifteen minutes. Now wash your feet with a mild soap, dry out your feet thoroughly and apply a good foot care cream.

(ii) Homemade Foot Care Lotion: Mix one table spoon each of Almond oil, Olive oil, Wheat Germ oil and add 10 drops of Eucalyptus Essential. Shake this mixture well and store it in a cool & dry place. Apply this lotion to your feet (especially heels) after you have washed and dried your feet.

Caring Nails Tips

Natural Nail Care Don’ts

  • Don’t pull the cuticle too much: Trim only that portion of the cuticle which has started to lift away from nail.
  • Don’t pull off hangnails: Don’t try to pull the hangnails as you can tear live tissues along with hangnails. Trim off your hangnails carefully, leaving your cuticles intact and un-tampered as much as feasible.

  • Wear Gloves: Wear cotton-lined rubber gloves while gardening, washing dishes or using harsh chemicals to protect your nails and cuticles.
  • Clear nail polish: Apply a thin coat of clear nail polish to lock-in the moisture into the nails.
  • Coat outside of the nails with polish or ridge fillers: This helps in protecting the nails from breaking and splitting.
  • Disinfect any tears or cuts to the cuticle or nails as soon as they occur.
  • Treat ingrown nails: This is a condition when the edge of your nail grows into surrounding skin fold. To avoid this, try trimming your nails straight across and then carefully trim the ingrown nails.
  • Wear sunscreen when required: While going in to sunlight for extended periods, do wear a sunscreen onto your hands to protect your hands, nails, cuticles from sun damage.
  • Keep your nails clean and dry: This helps in averting building up of fungi, bacteria and other germs under your fingernails.
  • Trim and file your nails regularly: Trim and file your nails when they are soft, after bathing. Use for this purpose a sharp manicure clipper or scissor. First trim your nails straight across, then round the tips in mild curves.
  • Clean your nail implements: Bacteria or other microbes can get transmitted from the nail tools you use onto your nails or cuticles. So clean before you use them.

# Avoid direct sun rays: The direct sunlight robs moisture off your hair. Use umbrella or broad brimmed hat to cover your head and hair while going out for prolonged periods.

To avoid being messy, wear a shower cap or cover your head and hair with a towel while sleeping.

How To Give Pedicure At Home In Easy Steps

Remove existing nail polish, if any – First step : Rub your feet nails with some cotton dipped in nail polish remover to remove old nail polish. The nail polish removers that are alcohol and acetone free are less drying, but they don’t work well especially on dark shades. Use these on lighter nail polish shades only.

Feet Soaking – Second step : Fill a basin with enough warm water to cover your feet up to ankles and add:

  1. Epson salt ½ cup. This works as a balm and soothes inflammations, lessen roughness and ease muscle pain. If not available, you can use any other bath salts.
  2. Juice of one lemon.
  3. Few drops of a Foot wash of your choice. Alternatively, you can use liquid hand wash or shampoo as per your choice.
  4. Essential oils as per your likings. Best options are Lavender or Eucalyptus. Lavender relaxes and rejuvenates the skin and helps ease the nerves. On the other hand eucalyptus relieves your aching feet. It also works as a disinfectant and antiseptic.
  5. Throw in few small pebbles into the basin and place your feet over them. This works as an excellent massage.
  6. Pull up a chair along the side of basin and sit in a comfortable position while soaking your feet for 10-20 minutes, as per your need and liking. Dry your feet with a towel thereafter.

Trimming and Filing your nails – Third step : Use high quality clippers made for clipping toe nails. Make it sure to cut toe nails straight across just above the skin so that your nails should not extend over the tips of your toes. Use at least three cuts on each nail, as clipping the whole nail in one go may lead to cutting too close to the skin. Do not cut corners too much to avoid painful ingrown nails. Use an emery board or nail file and file your nails in one direction, until they are even and slightly rounded at the corners. Avoid using metal files, as they can rip your nails. Use the fine grade surface for smoothing the nails and the coarser surface for shaping the nails.

Exfoliating and Taking care of your cuticles – Fourth step :

  1.  Rub in a little bit of cuticle cream on the base of each toe nail. Leave it there for a few minutes.
  2. In the meantime remove the dead skin cells with pumice stone or a dry foot file. If you do not remove dead skin cells, they will become hard and thick and may be infected and cracked later. Scrub your ankles also.
  3. Make sure to scrub the heel and balls of the feet, sides of your heel and around your toes. Avoid scraping too hard. Stop if your foot turns red. Tough skin is there for a reason.
  4. Now wipe off the cuticle cream and gently push back the cuticles with cuticle pusher. Neat, rounded cuticles will give your feet a pretty look.
  5. If needed, use an old toothbrush to clean your toes and underneath your toe nails.

#  Moisturizing – Fifth step :

  1.  After you finish with scrubbing, wash your feet clean, dry them thoroughly including between the toes and rub a thick moisturizer or foot cream on your feet, top and bottom, including your heels and cuticles.
  2. You can use any moisturizer of your choice. Even if you have purchased a face cream and later you find it too heavy for using on your face, you can use it for your feet.

Polishing Toe Nails – Sixth step :
