Apple Banana Smoothie

SmoothieImage via Wikipedia
Today I am discussing a juice recipe which I like very much. This apple banana smoothie is very soothing especially in hot season. You can use this recipe as smoothie or juice. Apple and banana is a best combination for a smoothie and it is of great taste. By adding orange make it a vitamin rich formula. If served with ice definitely it becomes smoothie-soothing.

Apple Banana Smoothie
Green apples 2
Orange 1/2
Ripe banana 1
Brewers yeast 1 tbsp.

Cut apples into small pieces. No need to remove seeds. Peel the orange and remove seeds. Then put apple pieces and peeled orange in a mixer/grinder and make the juice. I do not prefer juicer because it remove all fleshy part and give only liquid juice. By using a mixer it mashes the fruits. After that use a loose sieve to take the juice. Then put this juice, banana and yeast in a blender and make the smoothie. If you prefer to get juice then take only half banana and add a little water if needed.

If garnish Apple Banana Smoothie with slices of orange is good. Remember to add ice pieces and have it immediately. Or the ice cubes may become water and diminish the taste of the smoothie.

Body Bath for Skin Care

Bath for skin care

Bath is an effective beauty therapy for the proper maintenance of skin. If you are using soap, do not take very hot water. It will damage oil glands. Fresh lukewarm water is best for taking bath.

In case of any skin disease use a medicated, disinfectant soap. Ordinary soaps are not disinfectant. In summer take bath twice a day, to wash off sweat and grease. Use of soap should be discontinued in case of dry skin, in winters and in advanced age. Bath can be taken in running water, standing water in tubs, under shower or with steam.

Sandalwood paste keeps the body mildly fragrant and refreshed throughout the day. For this take sandalwood powder, mix rose water and make a paste and apply in thick coat. Leave it for 15 min let it dry then take bath.

To lighten a dark complexion a simple home remedy is this; take oat flour tied in a kerchief or napkin dip it in unboiled (raw) milk and rub on the body twice a week. Slowly skin acquires a lighter tint. For unwanted hair scrub with gram flour.

Steam bath
Steam bath is effective for reducing fat but has no practical utility as it does not clean the skin. Very hot steam may leave an adverse effect on the heart. Blood vessels expand permanently due to steam and sweat glands become overactive.

Sun bath
Rays of the sun are a rich source of vitamin D which strengthens the body with calcium and phosphorus. But if there is hot climate long exposure to these rays is harmful. Face and head should be covered while other parts of the body could be exposed. Too much exposure can activate the brain adversely. It can cause wrinkles and falling of hair. it is advisable to drink one liter water with a lemon or two squeezed in it.

But you don't have time to visit a beauty parlor to prepare for the function! Don't worry, here is the short cut to do a wedding facial at home. Using this tip you can become gorgeous in the function.

How to do a wedding facial at home
You can do this wedding facial either one day before the function, at the evening time or on the wedding day. First thing you can do is an instant cleansing. For this take a ripe tomato and cut a small piece. Top or bottom piece is better. Clean the face with water and move the tomato slice over the face. Do it in circular motion in clockwise direction. Continue for about 5-7 min. Then wash the face.

Next thing to do is applying a suitable pack. You can select any pack from my earlier posts. Here I am suggesting an easy one for this occasion. Add 3tsp. chick pea powder, add 2tsp. milk powder and orange juice to make a paste. Now you apply this pack all over the face and neck. Leave this face pack for 10-15 min. and then wash it off with cold water.

Here is an additional tip for you to become gorgeous on the wedding day: If the function is on the next day morning drink two glasses of orange juice or carrot juice(or a mix of both) before going to bed. If the function is on the next day evening drink the juice on the function day morning. This will add a charming to your skin. As I used to tell every time try to avoid acidic food on these days. Also fried fish and meat. These are all small things we may not count. That is why people asking you on the functions 'why you are looking dull' etc. So take care of that.

In the morning on the wedding day do the tomato cleansing once more. It will take out any dark coloration on the skin. It will lighten the pigmentation. After 10 min. wash the face with cold water. Now you can apply make up. If you have sunscreen lotion you can apply it. Try to avoid direct sun exposure.

Welcome to all visitors. Yes it is a good idea to try some natural and homemade methods for your beauty care.
This site provides you natural tips to improve your beauty. Some of these tips can be homemade. I would like to say it as 'at home' beauty tip.
In beauty tips, here you get skin care, hair care and nail care. In these days people look back to natural remedies. It is economical and most of them are with no side effects. Only problem exists is availability of ingredients worldwide. I will try to provide information about the availability as better as possible. At least I can provide links to such products.
The ingredients mentioned in most of the tips are herbs and it is found very effective and safe..Why?
By nature human beings are 'herbivores'. That means their food is herbs not other animals. Because the intestine of herbivores are very long. The herbs we eat will take more time to digest. In the other hand, 'carnivores' that eats mainly meat does not require long intestine. So physiologically we are fit to eat herbs only. But in modern times we eat less vegetables. So naturally we lack so many things that may get from these herbs. That is why we are affected by illness and other problems. So most of our problems can easily be solved by herbs. By default the herbs are with less side effects and it is so safe.
