Most Common New Year’s Resolutions

Hello,

Well, well, itโ€™s the first day of the new year 2020..!!

When we hear new year, resolutions is the word that usually comes with it. Many of us, every year, without fail make some resolutions. Things which we would like to follow or accomplish in the new year. Itโ€™s an open secret that very few end up keeping up those resolutions. I am personally so bad at keeping โ€˜new year’s resolutionsโ€™ that, I have just stopped that custom..!!

Skin Care Tips for Dry Skin

Last week I have shared a post with all the care we got to take if we have oily skin. Today, let’s talk about skin which lacks hydration. That is dry skin.

Some girls are so much worried about their itchy dry skin that they try a lot many products. But not all the products are meant for this particular type of skin. Lets see how to take care of dry skin in right way.

First thing first. No matter what your skin type is, the basic mantra is these three letters – CTM.

Cleansing –

Harsh face washes and soaps are a big no no for you guys. Because they dry the skin even more. To clean or cleanse your face, always use a cream based cleanser. Reason being, while serving the key purpose, it will also add some moisture which your skin needs.

Toning –

Toner removes the left over dirt from facial pores. If you have good cleanser, you can skip this step.

Moisturising –

There are multiple types of moisturisers available in market. I am not just talking about different brands, there are types like water based, oil based, heavy, light moisturisers. Based on your skin condition choose the right one. Since the skin is already dry, oil based or heavy moisturiser suits the best for dry skinned beauties.

Scrubbing –

This is one of the ‘needed’ step in skin care regime for dry skin. Scrubbing removes dead skin cells. Which is much needed in your case. Even while choosing a scrub, look for a lotion based scrub. You can try out sugar and honey scrub. While sugar removes the dead skin cells, honey adds moisture. Too much scrubbing is something I never recommend. Two to three times a week(provided your skin is extremely dry) is what best suitable one.

More homemade scrubs here.

Face Packs –

There are some moisturising face packs which you can prepare at home using kitchen ingredients. Try them twice or thrice a week to add the moisture to your skin.

For body:

Along with eating right and drinking loads of water, below are some of the points which are essential for better skin texture.

1. Cleansing –

Instead of using soaps, opt for a mild shower cream or gel. Cream being the first choice, for the obvious reasons.

2. Scrubbing –

Just like face, it’s necessary to scrub away those dead skin cells from body. This will avoid the itchiness as well as it lets skin breath. You can try some home made scrubs or try dry brushing.
Know about dry brushing here.

3. Body Lotion –

A heavy body lotion is what your skin will be thankful for. These are the body lotions I recommend for you. Apply the lotion twice a day for better results.

So these are the quick tips to take a good care of dry skin. I hope you find it useful. โ˜บ๏ธ

Dozen Reasons to Include Garlic In Your Daily Regimen

Garlic – is such an ingredient which has both haters and lovers. Some just love it, like I do… Some, run away because of it’s smell. I personally love the taste it adds to a dish. At my home, only my mom and I love garlic so my dad and sister give us the garlics to us if they find it in their plates. Not because sharing is caring, because garlic is precious. At least to my mom and me. hehe.

So, you know this little ingredient can work wonder on your skin and hair??? Yes. You can replace some of your beauty items with this. Skin, hair friendly and most importantly budget friendly.

Let’s see how this kitchen ingredient does wonders to your skin and hair..!!!

Hair:

Hair Loss and Hair Growth:

Allicin, a sulphur compound which is used to treat hair fall or hair loss. This is also found in one more kitchen item – onion.
All you need to do is, slice the garlics. Squeeze the juice out of it and rub it on the scalp. Massage the scalp and leave it for a while. You can wash your hair post half an hour or so. This helps in preventing hair loss as well as promoting new hair growth.

Improves Blood Circulation in Scalp:

Garlic has Vitamins C, B2 and B1. They boost the blood circulation. Which in turn helps in boosting hair growth and improves health of hair.

Skin:

Acne Treatment:

Garlic has great antioxidants. Which helps in killing the bacteria. You know the acne or pimples are the skin’s way of fighting against bacteria. To help your skin to win this battle, all you need is garlic in your team. Rub garlic juice on pimples which will kill it’s enemy – bacteria.

Smooth and Rash Free Skin:

Garlic has great anti-inflammatory properties. Thus as you might have heard garlic oil is been a part of skin treatments. It helps in healing skin and result in rash free and smooth nourished skin.

Perfect Pedicure Ingredient:

We need to wash skin between the feet fingers especially during monsoon for the obvious reasons. If you are looking for anti fungal liquid or something, don’t waste your money on them. Instead, slice garlics and dip them in the bucket of warm water and dip your feet. Garlic will do its magic.

Anti Aging:

Garlic is a good source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients etc. They are the key ingredients which help in protecting it against aging signs like wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots etc. So next time when you find garlic in your plate, don’t waste it. Eat it for the sake of that glowing skin.

Minimizes Large Pores:

If your facial pores are visibly large, you are at a risk of more skin damage. How??? The open pores invites more dirt accumulation. Thus resulting in clogging them and causing acne. But worry not, mix garlic juice with any of other favorite kitchen ingredient of yours to make a paste. Apply it on face. Let it dry before washing it warm water. With regular use, this has been proved to minimise the large pores.

For Your Nails:

No matter how much you take care of nail’s hygiene, there is always a scope for improvement. There is always this tiny dirt stuck in the edge which will cause infection thus effecting nail’s health. So rubbing slice of garlic on your nails acts as anti bacterial lotion. Thus killing bacteria and helping the growth of nails.

Health:

Cold:

Garlic has been said to improve the immune system. When you are effected by common cold, drop few garlic in a pot of water and boil it. Strain and drink the water. This will help in curing the common cold. If you do not like the taste of it, you can add honey to it.

One more Ayurveda remedy which I have heard is, put a tiny piece of garlic inside a small cotton ball. Put this cotton ball inside your ears. It’s said that it will cure the cold as well as ear pain.

Weight Loss:

A study was conducted to prove that garlic in diet can help in reducing the weight. Thus if you are on the way to weight loss, do include garlic in your diet. What’s more happier than reducing weight by eating. Isn’t it???

Mosquitoes Hate Garlic:

Yes even though there are no exact reason for this, but they hate garlic. And we hate mosquitoes for their annoying noise and their bad habit of spreading diseases while sucking our blood out. Bad mosquitoes.
The good news is, you don’t have to spend money on mosquito repellent any more. Make one at home with less cost. Ingredients required are – garlic(obviously), Petroleum jelly and beeswax. Mix them well to form the lotion. In case you do not like the smell of it, add any essential oil of your choice. and tada you have your customised mosquito repellent.

Pests too Hate Garlic:

If you love gardening and thinking of which pesticides to buy next, try this out. With garlic oil, mineral oil, water and liquid soap – make one and spray it on plants. Pests hate garlic so they don’t dare to harm your little green friends.

Did you know these benefits??? I hope you found this post useful.

If you know any other benefits do let us know. Happy to share your remedies on Mygirlypedia so that it can help more people.
