DIY

Helloo How are you all doing? As much as i wish to write here, there are few things that are coming in the way. I am working on those and I am sure I would be in the right state of mind and write here often. I am trying to do small posts and share effective DIY’s with you all.

Today’s DIY is another Ayurvedic remedy. This is to stay away from all the skin problems and odour free this summer. Add half a lemon and some salt ( Preferably Rock salt) to your bath. Salt removes all the dirt and lemon removes the tan and keeps you fresh. Go ahead and enjoy your citrusy fresh bath.

By the way, this summer instead of long cold showers, use a Pail/bucket for bathing to save water.

I still come online and browse sometimes. So please check out the blog and do talk to me through your comments. Your support means alot to me.

DIY – Facial Toners

In one of my last posts (https://beautywisetalks.wordpress.com/2015/06/06/all-about-the-skin-toners/ )I mentioned about the beauty benefits of using toners. In this I am sharing few toners which can be made and used in a jiffy.

Rosewater

This is one product which is so versatile and used extensively in face packs. After cleansing just wipe the face with rosewater and done. Good for all skin types.

Cucumber water

Grate a cucumber and squeeze out the juice. Apply it to the face using a cotton pad. Can be stored for a week if refrigerated properly.

Green Tea

This is my favourite toner of all time. Just boil water and a green tea bag or leaves, leave it for 10 mins, strain and store it. Use it when ever is needed.

Ice cubes

Yes, Ice cubes. Rub the ice cube all over the face after cleansing it helps in closing the pores and tightening the skin.

Lemon Water

Who can leave lemon when it comes to DIY’s. Take the juice from one lemon and add same amount of distilled water (or just boil the water and cool it). Toner s ready. Excellent for oily skin and for removing the tan too.

Aloevera juice

You can directly take aloevera juice onto the cotton pad and use it as a toner or add few drops of lemon juice to it and use.

Mint/Basil/Neem leaves

Boil required amount of water add any of the above mentioned leaves, simmer it for 5 minutes. Let it cool,strain and use it. Can be stored. But make it in small amounts as there are no preservatives added in these.

Bonus Tip: You can add little sea salt to the solution. Removes the left over grim and dirt.

Last word:

Do not wipe away the Toners, Let them dry on their own when applied.

Always dilute the lemon juice when used on the face. These are the ones which I have tried and use. I find them very effective as I can make them according to my needs. Let me know which toner You use everyday
