Home Remedies for Skin Care

Did you know that pimples are evidence that the body is trying to cleanse itself of toxins? Need a good home remedy to get rid of your teen's acne or that annoying breakout during PMS? Check out these remedies I found and see if one of them work for you! (1) Try fasting periodically as this will detoxify your body. Dab pimples with Listerine mouthwash and watch them disappear! Or, use a mix of the juice of 2 garlic cloves with an equal amount of apple cider vinegar. (2) Because sassafras tea purifies the blood, it could be be taken for acne as well. Increase the effectiveness by also applying a compress soaked in warm tea to the affected area. Repeat this several times a day. (3) For acne, take black currant seed oil or evening primrose oil capsules. A good dose would be 500mg. 3 times a day. Do this for 3 months or until the acne clears up. (4) For very sore skin or infected areas, use some wheat flour and warm water to make a paste. Add a little yeast and let it sit a little. Add some warm wood ash to thicken it. Put this on a piece of cloth and place the cloth on the wound or infected area. It may pull too hard if you leave it on to long. (5) Take the outside shell of walnuts and make a strong tea. Bathe all of the affected areas thoroughly. (6) Using Beta-Carotene 25,000 IU (Provitamin A), shows good results for clearing up acne. Here are some additional skin care home remedies I came across while researching acne remedies. One is for body powder, another is for moles and blemishes, a couple about dry skin, and 2 others are about revitalizing your skin! Hope you enjoy! (1) BODY POWDER: Mix 1/2 baking soda, 1/2 cornstarch, 1/2 baby powder (or your preference). Use daily. (2) FOR ROUGH, DRY & CRACKED SKIN: use Senica Lotion. It's also good for sore muscles and joints, open sores and rashes. Just put it on and rub it in. (3) CRACKS ON FINGERS AND AROUND FINGERNAILS: use clear fingernail polish or Crazy glue right on the crack. (4) FOR MOLES AND BLEMISHES: Use Castor oil. Just rub a little on everyday until it's gone. It also helps pull the pain out. Take a warm cloth and put oil on it. Put wherever the pain is, the put plasic wrap on top as you don't want to get oil on your clothing. Leave on for the night. Throw away the rags if the get soiled too bad. This works very well, however those that do not have a gall bladder are not recommended to use this remedy, the Castor oil can make you very sick. (5) For DRY HANDS: Mix equal parts of glycerin, lemon juice, and white vinegar to use as a hand conditioner for dy skin problems, especially when working with concrete. (6) For SOFT, GLOWING SKIN: Beat an egg white until nice and frothy and then add a tablespoon each of honey and vinegar. Apply to the face and neck. Let dry completely, then sponge off with cool water. (7) REVITALIZE SKIN: Work one tablespoon of olive oil into one cup of thoroughly mashed, fresh strawberries. Add 1/4 cup of honey. Use before bathing.
