10 Home Remedies for Glowing Skin

10 Home Remedies for Glowing Skin

Come autumn and most people I know start to stock up their creams, moisturisers and other skin nourishing products. During this time of the year, the skin starts to feel stretched and leathery, especially for those people who have dry skin. And for others who have been neglecting a proper skin care regime also notice patchy and discoloured, dull looking skin. Coming to people with oily and combination skin types, the skin starts to look better, more porcelain and glowing, but remember even these skin types will feel a tightening and stretching of the skin and will require not just moisturising but nourishing too.

 

So what’s the difference between moisturising and nourishing you’d ask? The simplest way to explain it to you would be comparing a dehydrated powdered soup available in packets as against a fresh, wholesome, home-made soup. You can never replace the goodness of pure fresh ingredients and products whether it is on your skin and hair or something you take internally.

 

So what are these winter skin nourishers that give you the goodness of natural ingredients? Do they just moisturise the skin or do they nourish and pamper it too? Most certainly the answer is in the affirmative. Let’s have a look at some of nature’s wonderful skin nourishers and see how you can use them to improve, soften, nourish and pamper your skin.

 

Natural Skin Nourishers

 

1. Honey

 

Honey when taken internally and externally is excellent for the skin. For combination to dry skin types, take one teaspoon of honey and massage on the skin daily. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wash. Pat dry and you will see that not only is your skin softer but also glowing.

2. Figs

It is one of my all-time favourites. Take two figs (anjeer) and mash them. Mix in with a little milk and gentle rub on the face for one to two minutes. Wash the face with water and pat dry.

3. Milk

I personally love this ingredient. Not only does it softens and nourishes the skin but also makes it sensuous and helps in de-tanning. Wipe your skin with full fat milk twice a day or just splash a small bowlful of cold milk on your skin and pat dry.

4. Avocado

The healthy fruit with aphrodisiac properties works wonders for dry skin. Mash an avocado and apply it onto a clean skin, slowly massaging it. Leave it on for a minimum of 15 minutes before you wash off with milk and then water.

5. Banana

A common man’s moisturiser and nourisher, never underestimate this fruit. Mash a ripe banana and massage the skin with the pulp. Even the driest of skins will thank you for it.

6. Almond

Whether you are using pure almond oil or almond paste, both are excellent sources of Vitamin E, providing nourishment for your skin externally. For dehydrated and dry skin, first massage the face with one teaspoon almond oil and then make a paste of 10 almonds mixed with a little milk and scrub it gently onto the skin. Wash the face with milk and then water. Not only will this help patchy skin but will give the skin an youthful texture, something we are all in constant search of.

7. Olives

Olive is an excellent source of vitamins. Take three to four mashed olives and apply it onto the skin and let it dry. Wash off with cold water and pat dry. It will help restore the skin’s natural pH.

8. Papaya

I am amazed at the goodness of this humble fruit and have used it time and time again on my skin in various treatments, and they have all given positive results. Take mashed papaya and massage it onto the skin for five minutes. Wash the skin with milk and then water and see how clarified and soft your skin feels in minutes.

glowing skin-8

9. Sugar

Sugar is an excellent skin softener. For best results, mix the grains with either curd or fresh cream to bring back life to the driest of all skins. Take one teaspoon of shakkar and mix with one teaspoon of malai and gently massage onto the skin. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash with cold water.

glowing skin-9

10. Aloe vera

This modest plant can be grown practically everywhere – gardens, pots, terraces, etc – and is an excellent rejuvenator for undernourished skin. Scrape out the gel from the leaf, mash it and massage onto the skin. Let it sit there for 10 minutes and wash the skin with cold water and pat dry. Your skin will be rejuvenated naturally.

Now that you have these precious natural nourishers, all you need to do is start using them and see how your skin comes back to life and becomes super soft in minutes.

Until next time, make your skin happy naturally.

Exclusive: CBSE plans Class 10, 12 Board exams on same date in two shifts

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) proposes to hold the finals for classes 10 and 12 on same dates in two shifts, a move that will reduce the examination period and give teachers extra time to check answer-scripts more thoroughly.

The new plan was designed after the board met principals of some of the top schools in New Delhi and its satellite cities.

The CBSE, which has two panels committees to suggest ways to improve the system, will review the suggestions before a final decision is taken.

The country’s largest school board that has more than 18,000 institutions affiliated to it holds the two exams usually from March 1, barring exceptions such as this year’s state assembly elections that delayed the test by more than a week.

The exams run close to 45 days because of an array of subjects and separate time-tables for the two classes.

The plan to set common dates for both exams, with Class 12 in the morning and Class 10 in the afternoon, is likely to decrease the overall duration of the finals.

At present, exams are not held in the afternoon.

The reduced number of exam days will give evaluators — a pool of schoolteachers selected by the CBSE — more time to check the answer-scripts of students before the results are declared in May.

Students of Class 12 during the first day of CBSE exam at an exam centre, in Blue Bells Model School, Sector-4, in Gurgaon, India.

The teachers usually get a small window to check the answers, given the sheer size of the number of examinees.

More than a million students wrote the Class 12 exam this year.

“By conducting Class 12 and 10 exams on the same day we can reduce the examination period and provide more time to the evaluators,” a senior board official said.

The CBSE has drawn criticism for its evaluation system as several students complained of variation in marks after asking the board for a relook.

The board said it took extra care to cut faults, but the possibility of human error cannot be ruled out in calculating the marks, putting them on answer-scripts and feeding them manually in computers.

“Efforts are made to further improve the system,” the official said. The meeting with principals was called to gather views “before deciding anything on the evaluation and examination system”, the official said.

According to sources, most principals were against reevaluation or rechecking of answer-scripts, but won’t mind verification of marks.

“A longer evaluation period will be better for students. This will give teachers more time to look at the answer sheets, maybe more teachers can look at them. This will ensure fewer errors,” a principal said.

Another principal said “we have assured the board we will send our best teachers” to check answers.

It has also been suggested that the board should ask students to suggest teachers who could be good evaluators. Another suggestion is to increase the remuneration of evaluators, at least by 20%, and to set a figure as to how many copies they need to check.

“We are looking at restricting the number of copies that can be evaluated by a person in six hours so that quality is maintained,” the CBSE official said.

DU admissions: Just 10% seats left, popular colleges finalising intake for courses

Admissions to merit-based undergraduate courses under the fourth cutoff list at Delhi University closed on Saturday, with admissions approved to almost 90% of the seats.

This may have been the last chance for many to get admitted to popular course choices in sought after colleges at DU, as many of them will be closing admissions to these courses.

DU has around 56,000 seats in its 60-odd constituent colleges, of which 50,000 seats are for merit-based undergraduate courses. Admissions to these seats are based on cutoffs .

By Saturday evening, admissions had been approved to almost 45,000 of these seats, and almost 42,000 students had paid their admission fees by 6 pm.

According to DU officials who are part of the admission process, almost 3,500 seats had been filled in the latest round of admissions, leaving only about 10% of the seats still vacant.

By Saturday evening, admissions had been approved to almost 45,000 of these seats, and almost 42,000 students had paid their admission fees by 6 pm.

Colleges such as Sri Venkateswara College have already admitted students beyond capacity. “We have approximately 1,150 seats, and we have approved 1,198 admissions. Almost all the courses will be closed for admissions, especially under the general category, in the next list,” said P Hemalatha Reddy, the principal.

Ramjas College too expects to close admissions to most of its courses, as they have less than 100 seats remaining at their institution. Kirori Mal College too has claimed that the fourth list would have been the last chance for many applicants, as most popular course choices will be closed.

However, Daulat Ram College claimed they still had around 150 seats remaining. “Even in sought after courses such as BCom, BCom (hons) and English (hons), we have a few seats remaining,” said Savita Roy, the principal.

For sciences, students may want to look to Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Khalsa College. “We have filled approximately 570 out of our 800 seats. Though most courses are going to be closed, we still have seats in the science courses,” said an associate professor.

The next cutoff list is expected to be released on Tuesday.

10 Really Scary Ingredients That Might Be in Your Vitamins

A lot of people take vitamins, and there’s been a lot of news hitting the waves recently that have some people wondering, “What the heck is in these things?”

Katerina Schneider, founder/CEO of Ritual, a soon-to-launch “vitamin revolution” is pretty much on a mission to change that (the site is taking reservations now and is planning to launch later this fall). Her light-bulb idea: Create a vitamin that eliminates all the unnecessary ingredients and provides only what we need, while giving consumers all the research on what kind of vitamin does what. In a nutshell, be clean and transparent.

“There are weird ingredients in some vitamins that you probably wouldn’t ingest in your food or even put ON your body,” Schneider says. Even scarier? She says one in two Americans takes a vitamin/supplement daily and yet 90 percent of vitamins contain one or more of the following ingredients:

Petroleum byproducts (source for most vitamins)

Coal tar derivatives (intermediates in vitamin production)

Polyethylene glycol (industrial antifreeze)

Titanium dioxide (indigestible colorant)

Mineral oil (causes vitamin deficiencies)

Carrageenan (gastrointestinal inflammation)

Parabens (hormone disruptors)

Ion-exchange resins (plastics)

Gelatin (cow skin and bones)

Artificial colorants (carcinogens)

So what is someone to do who is still keen to take vitamins yet wants to stay away from all this less-than-appealing list? Schneider says a good start is to look for vegan-friendly, allergen-free and non-GMO where applicable. “Know your source and learn which forms to look for. Many vitamin brands use the cheapest possible form of each nutrient that doesn’t do a lot of good in the body, and could actually beharmful.”

Given the variety of vegetables that can be transformed into a delectable snack, it is better to expose your taste buds to these trendy and delicious bites rather than opting for the usual, greasy potato chips. These can be equally addictive.

Breastfeeding Mothers Have 10 Per Cent Lower Risk of Heart Attack

Breast milk is said to contain a number of benefits for the baby’s health. It contains a variety of nutrients essential for the newborn’s well-being, and also includes antibodies which cannot be medically engineered. However, there are also several advantages for the breastfeeding mother. Breastfeeding may reduce a mother’s heart attack and stroke risk later in life, according to new research. The study, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association

showed that women who breastfed their babies had about a 10 percent lower risk of developing heart disease or stroke later in life. The study analysed data from 289,573 Chinese women participating in the China Kadoorie Biobank study who provided detailed information about their reproductive history and other lifestyle factors.

Breastfeeding helps the mother burn extra calories faster, thereby facilitating a quicker loss of post-pregnancy weight. “The health benefits to the mother from breastfeeding may be explained by a faster ‘reset’ of the mother’s metabolism after pregnancy,” explained Sanne Peters, a research fellow at University of Oxford. Breastfeeding

is the easiest and the most natural way to shed the kilos and drop the unnecessary weight for newbie mothers. It is considered a much better way, rather than resorting to other measures such as extreme dieting or vigorous exercise.

breastfeed

Peters further elaborates, “Pregnancy changes a woman’s metabolism dramatically as she stores fat to provide the energy necessary for her baby’s growth. Breastfeeding could eliminate the stored fat faster and more completely.”

This study comes after previous research indicated that mothers get short-term health benefits from breastfeeding such as weight loss and lower cholesterol, blood pressure and glucose levels after pregnancy.

“The findings should encourage more widespread breastfeeding for the benefit of the mother as well as the child,” said Zhengming Chen, Professor of Epidemiology, University of Oxford.
