Nail Care Tips

To harden soft nails, soak them in warm olive oil for about 20 minutes, on alternate days.
To remove stains from your nails, mix one tablespoon of lemon juice in a cup of water and soak your nails in this liquid for a few minutes. Then, wash off with warm water and apply a hand moisturizer.
It is not a good idea to remove the cuticles from your nails, as it will make the nail susceptible to infection. Rather, you should make use of good quality cuticle oil and gently push back the cuticles, with the help of an orangewood stick.
Try to stay away from acetone polish removers as much as you can and stick to the one that make use of acetate. Still, try not to use a polish remover more than once a week.
In case you wear nail polish, make sure to give your nails a break from time to time. In other words leave them without polish for a few days, every now and then. Otherwise, they will develop an ugly, yellow tint.
If you want to give a natural sheen to your nails, just like the colorless base coat, rub petroleum jelly on your nails and then buff them, with the help of a soft cloth.
If you have brittle nails or split or dull nails, then increasing your consumption of Organic Silica, Vitamin B (especially B5) and MSM (Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane) will surely help.
Never ever resort to nail biting, as it is extremely destructive for the nails as well as the cuticles. If you are in the habit of biting your nails, drop it as soon as possible.
Whenever you wash your hands, while bathing as well as otherwise, make sure to dry the nails properly and apply a hand cream or lotion, using it on the nails as well. This is because soap makes the nails dry and brittle.
The best time to file your nails is when you are already wearing a polish. This will prevent splitting or breaking of nails.
If you have brittle nails, it is advisable to wear a nail polish, or at least the colorless base coat, as much as you can.

What Vitamin Should You Take for Hair Loss?

Vitamin A
Vitamin A is an antioxidant that aids in scalp oil production. It's important to note that excess amounts of vitamin A can have undesirable effects, by inhibiting hair growth, and can even be toxic.

B12 can be responsible for hair loss by itself simply due to a deficiency. Frequently injections of B12 can resolve hair loss issues. It is not stored well by the body and is required for the body's use of oxygen and for metabolism. It is needed for activation of B6 and helps in creating niacin. B12 is most absorbable when taken with vitamin C and the daily recommended dose is 50mg.
B6 is also thought to prevent hair loss. It also aids in hair coloring and has a major role in creation of niacin, which is needed for healthy circulation. B6 must be entirely obtained through diet or supplementation because the human body cannot synthesize it by itself.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant and helps maintain healthy hair. It aids in synthesis of collagen and is readily available in the diet. The daily recommended dose is 90 to 120mg.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E is vital to scalp circulation and cell regeneration, both necessary for hair growth. The daily recommended dose is 15 to 19mg.

Caring for your skin type

Caring for dry skin
Use a specially designed cleansing lotion to cleanse your skin, but leave it on for a while before wiping it away. Splash cold water on your face to freshen it. Use heavy-duty moisturizer which will help the skin retain moisture and prevent evaporation.

Caring for oily skin
Wash your skin with cleansing foam. It removes impurities, but retains moisture. After that, rub the skin with a cotton ball dipped in alcohol-based lotion. Even oily skin needs moisturizing, but the moisturizer has to be light. Dab away all excesses with a tissue.

Caring for mixed skin
Use cleansing foam to wash your face in the morning. This will keep the oily parts clean and prevent the formation of blackheads. In the evening, apply moisturizer to calm the dry areas.

Caring for sensitive skin
Never wash your face with soap. Use hypoallergenic cleansing lotion instead. Use a nourishing moisturizer and a lotion which creates a protective barrier to prevent irritation. Make sure that your moisturizer does not contain perfume.

Caring for normal skin
Wash your face with foam. While doing that, rub the foam in, massaging the face with gentle circular motions. Cool your skin down with a splash of cold water or lotion which does not contain alcohol.

4 Ways For Effective Skin Spots Treatment
1. Honey-cinnamon spot treatment:
Honey, known for its skin-lightening properties, successfully removes spots. Take a few drops of honey on your clean palm; add to it a pinch of cinnamon powder and apply over the spots on your cleansed face at night, before going to bed. Next morning, wash your face with clean water. This spot treatment slowly but effectively helps reduce the pigmentation and dark spots.

2. Lemon juice:
Lemon is a powerful, natural bleaching agent, and is one of our quickest bets when it comes to skin/ spot lightening. Applying lemon juice in its full strength can cause tingling sensation on your skin, thus use with caution. It is generally advisable to dilute lemon juice with other skin lightening agents such as honey to avoid any skin irritation. Especially in the case of sensitive skin, always do a patch test and wait for at least 24 hours.

3. Aloe Vera gel:
Another very effective agent for spot treatment is fresh aloe vera gel. If you are using the natural gel from the plant, cut out a 2-inch part of a leaf, split it into two with a clean knife, and directly apply aloe vera gel to your face, rubbing in circular motions. Leave the gel on your face for about 15 minutes (if you do not like the fragrance of the gel, spray some rose water on your face after applying the gel) and wash off with lukewarm water.

4. Raw papaya:
‘Papain’ enzyme in papaya reduces skin spots and renews the skin. Also, pulp of raw, green papaya has more Papain than ripe, orange papaya. So, cut out a one-inch slice of a raw papaya or grate some of it and directly apply to the face in circular motions. If your skin is not too sensitive, add 2-3 drops of lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey to it, apply to the face, and wash off after 15 minutes.

When you use home remedies, store the products that you use in separate containers.
Do not use ingredients from the same packaging as the ones you use for routine cooking.
It is important to keep everything like bowls, knives and spoons also separately, sanitized and free from contamination.
