How should I know my skin type and what should I do regularly to take care of my skin and make it look better?
Skin is generally oily/dry or normal. If you feel stretch in the face after face wash, it is dry. If you feel the skin looks greasy or feels greasy, it is oily. If none of the above, it is normal. For a regular care, you should cleanse your skin nicely and use a good face pack once in 15 days,

It is very essential to cleanse and exfoliate dark skin every day just as we do with our faces. When we neglect dark areas while pampering face, this results in patchy dark skin. So follow this daily care routine for getting rid of dark neck. ? Take milk and rub your skin with it. Milk is an excellent cleanser and a toner too. ? After cleansing, use a scrub, preferably natural one, to exfoliate the skin around your dark areas. ? You may mix olive oil with sugar and rub gently to scrub ? Sometimes use another scrub having bleaching agent such as lemon juice. You will find many scrubs here in this article that you can use for daily exfoliation. ? After exfoliating, wash off with water and apply some moisturizer. ? Whenever you go out, apply sunscreen to dark areas along with your face. This will avoid pigmentation. ? Never step out in sun when you apply lemon juice on your skin. This will make your skin darker than before. If you follow the above dark spots care regime daily, you will begin seeing result in a two week?s time. However, do not stop and continue cleansing, scrubbing and moisturizing your skin. Home Remedy Oats is not only good for your overall health but also for your patchy dark spots. As we do not pay more attention towards cleaning our other areas while doing every thing for our face- from cleansing, scrubbing, moisturizing and what not ? our skin folds gets dirty with the oil and fine grit deposits. This makes it look patchy and dark. Oats can be used as a scrub as well as a mask for dark spots when mixed with certain other skin lightening ingredients. Use oats as a scrub for dark spots You will need: ? Oats ? ground it coarsely, do not make fine powder out of it ? Tomato pulp ? Water ? Moisturizer Directions: ? Take the coarsely ground oats powder. ? Mix tomato pulp to it to get a paste like consistency. ? Apply this mixture to your entire effected region. ? Leave it for about 15-20 minutes. ? Now wet your fingers a littles and start rubbing your spots gently in circular motions. The coarse oats will have an exfoliating effect to remove dead skin cells from your dark arreeas ? After scrubbing dark spots with this natural oats scrub for about 5-7 minutes, wash off with water. ? Apply some moisturizer on neck and massage gently. You may use this scrub twice or even thrice in a week depending upon the intensity of dark patchy skin While oats will remove dirt and dead cells, tomato pulp will lighten the skin due to its natural bleaching properties.

It may be tempting to eat fast food, but greasy foods are among the worst culprits for hair loss. If you have a craving for a burger and fries, your best bet is to cook the burger yourself and dice, season and bake some potato wedges (leaving the skins on) to go along with it. Try to limit your intake of excessively cold, spicy and sugary foods as well. These can tax your body, and when your body’s fighting something unhealthy, it’s not functioning at its peak level.

Local application of coconut oil or mustard oil or some soothing and calming lotion may provide relief in itching. Neem is one among the best blood purifier and detoxifier known to ayurveda. It enhances immune system and neem oil is an antiseptic in itself. Leaf extracts are used in antiseptics and can be effectively used in treating skin diseases. It destroys fungus and bacteria and is best for almost all kinds of skin diseases including redness of skin and itching.

Cuticle Skin Peeling - How to Treat it?

Your hand is an integral part of your persona, which is why you need to keep them clean and presentable. However, conditions such as cuticle skin peeling can take away the beauty of your hands. Cuticle skin peeling can also irritate your hand throughout the day when the cuts are exposed to external elements, such as food or dirt. You could also infect your fingers in the process, if the cuticles are not treated properly.

Causes of Cuticle skin peeling:

  1. Allergic reaction: Bacteria may cause allergies and stimulate cuticle peeling problem. Detergents and other chemical product can also cause irritation.
  2. Bad habit: If you have a habit of biting nails or picking nails, then also you can be infected. Moreover, if you rip off your hanging nails instead of chipping them properly then it can result to skin infection.
  3. Lack of minerals: Calcium and vitamin deficiency can also be a reason for cuticle skin peeling around your fingernails. The skin gets dry and flaky resulting in breaks and chips which may in turn lead to cuticles.
  4. Skin diseases: If you have any skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis etc then you are likely to develop skin cuticle peeling problem.

Some treatments for cuticle peeling problems

  1. Warm lemon water: Rinse your hand everyday with warm lemon water to clean the nooks and crannies of the fingers where dirt may be stored. After washing hour hands ensure your moisturise them to keep it supple which will prevent the development of cuticles.
  2. Cucumber: You can also rub cucumber slices gently on your skin to reduce the inflammation form cuticles and sooth any wounds on the fingers.
  3. Aloe vera: You can also use the aloe vera gel for its cooling and soothing factors. Using aloe vera multiple times a day will help to get rid of cuticle-peeling by naturally moisturising and disinfecting the skin areas a t the same time.
  4. Honey: Use honey on your hands and then wash it with lukewarm water to get soft and smooth skin.
  5. Balanced diet: Maintaining a proper diet containing which has healthy fats, dietary fibre, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and protein will nourish all areas of your skin properly and prevent the problems of cuticle peeling occurring in the first place.
  6. Antibiotics: You may also need to take anti-infection drugs to reduce the problem if you have already had an infection in your fingers within the cuticles.
