Homemade dry skin treatment tips
For a particular type of skin you have to give attention in choosing the products to use. If you are using soap it is ok, but try to get some mild soap. If you use harsh soaps this will make your skin more dry. And only use once, better in the morning or while bathing. If you are using soap to wash your face, rinse the face with normal water. If you are interested to use herbal or natural things, read the following tips.

If any of you having cracked heels, just stop using soaps and see the result. It is from my experience.

As a cleanser you can use fruit juices. If your skin is dry use diluted juice. Means add water to the juice and use. Orange juice or carrot juice are good to use for dry skin. Don't leave it on the skin. Rinse after one min. Those who are with dry skin do not use lemon on the skin. After cleansing the skin do toning. You can use ice cube to close the pores back. Or you can use fresh curd as a toner. Now you can use creams or packs. As natural pack you can go for papaya as a cleansing face pack. It will give a shine and good looking appearance to skin. Carrot pack also is very good for dry skin.Do not go for mud pack or multani mitti pack if you are with dry skin. It is recommended for oily skin. And do not leave any face packs for more than 20 min. Cucumber can be used as a relaxing pack. Just leave it for 10 min. and see the effect. After using any of these face packs use luke warm water to rinse it off. If you have dry skin all over body then use diluted raw milk to apply on body.(see other milk baths) It can be used once in week.

After doing all these if you are going out in the sun use suitable sun screen lotion. Aloe vera or other natural moisturizers can be used. For some type of skin aloe can make it dark while going out. Applying oil is a very good weekly treatment for dry skin. Do an oil bath once in a week. Or go for a full body oil massage once or twice in a month. Doing hot oil treatment on hair is also a good practice. While doing oil bath use any natural scrub to ex-foliate the dead cells. Green gram flour can be used as a scrub and can be used to wash body naturally.

Those who are with dry skin I recommend them fruit or vegetable juices. Avoid juices with extreme acidic nature. Also try to avoid foods that create acidity. Drink enough water. Add a moderate quantity of butter in your breakfast. Take proteinatious foods more.

Homemade oily skin treatment tips
You can use suitable soaps two times to wash skin. One in the mornings and one in the evenings. Always use soaps with less chemicals. To wash face use face washes. As natural cleanser use papaya juice. Add few drops of lemon juice to fresh milk. Use the watery content of this to cleanse oily skin.

For toning the skin use tomato juice from the pulp of it. As the oily skin have more chance to get acne use packs containing tulsi leaves or pudin leaves. Once in a week use multani mitti pack to reduce the oil content from the skin. Washing body with green gram flour also helps oily skin. For an oily skin a face pack with green gram, turmeric powder, fenugreek and black mustard seeds also advisable.(see face packs) Using a scrub with sugar powder, oats and mustard seeds powder also good to ex-foliate the skin. If your scalp is having dandruff massage the scalp with orange juice.(natural dandruff remedies) You can also use some other packs or tips to avoid dandruff.

Drink fruit juices as it is good for creating good skin. Orange juice or pineapple juice or grape juice are recommendable. Avoid oily foods. Minimize the quantity of butter cheese and chocolate.

Because it is an actual query on how to use avocado facial for one specific skin type. I am writing these tips for a general category or for all of you. Still there will be variations to make either in the preparation or usage of the tip. After reading any tip if you can come up with your type of skin etc. I can give the exact methods to use each of the homemade tips.

See the original comment page or see the comment below:-----


Hello Geeta

thanks for your site. I want to congratulate you for keeping all the posts wonderful. Readers can see the genuineness of your writing.

Out of all the tips, I want to try avocado for my hair and skin. Will you please give me a personalized method. Because my skin is medium sensitive and my hair is not dry or oily but little bit loosing it's health. So how can I use the avocado?

with love
Saranya.

Saranya is asking about avocado facial. In this occasion I wanted to tell another story about avocado facial. Earlier I explained how to use avocado for hair and skin. I used to give avocado facial to my clients coming to my beauty center. But this avocado is not very common or not cultivated locally. But still it is available in some fruit stalls in this city. Last week I bought this avocado to one of my clients. She usually insist to avocado facial. See now I received a question regarding how to use avocado facial.

The specialty of this avocado facial is that the sap contained in the outer layer of the fruit is having a mild bleaching capability. So it gives more clear appearance for the skin. But it cannot be used for lightening the skin color.

Like Saranya with sensitive skin the avocado facial is a good choice. The inside content of the avocado itself is very cool and what to say, watery or creamy. Very nice product. It is like suppota right. So it won't create any irritation or burning to sensitive skin. The avocado facial can be done to all type of skins. It can be used as a moisturizer.

For hair it is a mild conditioner plus moisturizer.Henna also is a conditioner but it will make the hair lil thick.(so it gives extra protection to damaged hair) And hibiscus leaves also a good hair conditioner+shampoo. It is milder than henna. Still this avocado is a more mild and gentle conditioner. If you don't want to use henna certainly go for this avocado. You have to use it for three or more times.

Avocado Facial
I used to give avocado facial like normal facial. After cleansing and toning(either normal products or natural), instead of using other creams I use this avocado fruit to do the massage.

How to prepare avocado facial
Take a fully ripe avocado. Cut into two halves. If it is full ripe you can squeeze out the inner content with a spoon or use mixer/grinder for few secs. Put the inner content to a bowl. Using the spoon mash it well. Now you can add your favorite oil. I prefer almond oil. Add only few drops of almond oil. Mix well. Avocado facial is ready to use. If you want, you can add other suitable ingredients also like a little milk powder or oats powder or grated cucumber etc.

How to do avocado facial.
After cleansing your face take the avocado facial thing a little in your hands. With finger tips apply this avocado facial to your face and give a light facial massage.Give a circular motion upwards. Repeat this by taking the avocado facial thing little by little. You can see your face is becoming more clear and watch the skin is becoming lighter. The content in the avocado gives moisturizing effects. After giving 15 min. avocado facial massage apply it as a pack. If it is loose add some milk powder to make it a thick pack. After another ten min, rinse off face with cold water. Then tissue dry. Repeat this avocado facial daily for three days and repeat it once in a week.
