How to get rid of dry and scaly elbows:

The high pressure joints like knees, elbows and heels needs some cushion, that is the reason the skin over these joints is thicker. Some extra padding is good for protection, but scaly buildup on elbows is really uncomfortable and unattractive. Even those who devote considerable time to groom and clean their skin can be guilty of overlooking this flaky spot.

Well,  No matter how long you have been ignoring your elbows (and other rough and dry parts) there are certain ways to get rid of dry and scaly buildup (leaving your skin soft and supple) :

1. Halve a lemon and add a few pinches of sugar/ salt and rub it on the rough/ scaly skin for 5 minutes. 

2.  Exfoliate once or twice a week.

3. Moisturize your elbows using a thick cream or petroleum jelly especially before going to bed.

4. Coconut oil works great in doing away with dry and scaly skin.

5. When the dryness situation is really dire; soak them in raw milk for 10 minutes.

Note: Thick red skin with flaky white patches can be psoriasis. In that case you need to consult a dermatologist.

How to get Soft, Beautiful and Youthful hands:

Do you want to have soft, supple and youthful hands?

Pamper your hands with tender loving care and follow these simple points:

1.  Moisturize:
Keep your moisturizer somewhere close -within easy access, so that you can apply it on your hands time and again everyday especially during winters. As every time you wash your hands they strip off some moisture, so in order to compensate the moisture loss you need to smear on the moisturizer at regular intervals. Apply the moisturizer on your cuticles as well to avoid cracking and drying.

2.  Apply Sunscreen:
As far as sun protection is concerned, we concentrate on our face and neck and forget about the hands. As our hands are exposed to sun even they need protection from harmful UV rays.  So, don’t forget to apply sunscreen with SPF 15-30 on your hands before leaving home.

3.  Gentle wash:
Use a mild and anti-bacterial soap/hand wash to prevent dryness (as dryness can cause the hands to look older).

4.  Protection during domestic chores:
Always wear gloves while washing the dishes or whenever your hands are exposed to harsh detergents and hot water.

Chocolate (especially dark chocolate) is rich in antioxidants and contains anti-aging properties as well. It increases the production of collagen which helps in skin tightening and renewal, thereby delaying the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It imparts a healthy glow to your skin keeping it young and glowing.

Note: Stick on to unsweetened and high-quality chocolate (with at least 70 percent cocoa) not the sugary milk bars.

Winter skin woes-Tips to stay protected:

Turn down hot water bath (though irresistible) and avoid the use of soaps during winters. As, harsh soaps and hot water tend to strip your skin of its natural oils making it rough and dry.

  • Always use lukewarm water. 
  • As far as possible, go for home made body packs and choose a moisturizing soap/body wash enriched with emollients like Cocoa butter, Shea butter, Aloevera, Milk cream etc.
  • Always nourish your body with a daily moisturizer to restore its moisture, after the shower.

7 Biggest Exfoliating mistakes:

Exfoliation is one of the pivotal elements of a woman's beauty regime as it aids in removing dead skin cells, dirt and impurities from the skin's top layer giving you soft, supple and radiant skin but we  tend to take  the exfoliation part so easy and snappy, that we can hardly think of any possible exfoliating mistake. However there are a number of ways you might be harming your skin while exfoliating instead of imparting any help to it.

So beauties don’t devastate your skin any more by making any of the mistakes listed below:
Well you don’t have to make the major changes but there are certain points you should be aware of when you are exfoliating your skin.

1.  Dry Exfoliation (without water):
When the very thought of dry scrubbing is so painful just imagine the damage it can cause to your skin, as dry scrubbing creates a lot of friction on your face thereby harming the sensitive skin. Always splash some water on your face before you start exfoliating as it helps in lubricating the skin and makes the scrubbing easier.

2.  Using the wrong product:
For choosing the right product for exfoliating your skin, the golden rule is to go for a mild scrub (one with rounded micro beads is gentle) and avoid the one with scratchy or pointed beads or particles.

3.  Exfoliating dirty/unclean skin:
Use a mild cleanser to cleanse your face before scrubbing and make sure that your skin is free from any sort of dirt, grime and makeup before you start exfoliating. As dirt or grime on the skin hinders the job of the scrub, can even clog the skin pores instead of cleaning them.

4.  Too much Exfoliation:
Most of the women are tempted to use the scrub quite often with an idea “The more the better and cleaner” but this is not true. Limit the use of scrub once or twice a week (once a week is just perfect).

5.  Using wrong technique (for exfoliation):
Avoid vigorous rubbing and strong strokes, as your facial skin is delicate. Gently wipe out dead skin cells using a mild scrub (in a circular motion) for not more than 15-20 second.

6.  Exfoliating  distressed skin :
When your skin is irritated or is in a bad condition defer the use of scrub until your skin recovers its natural health. Scrubbing your skin in its vulnerable state can even worsen the skin problems.
7.  Skipping moisturizer: 
Pamper your skin with a mild moisturizer after exfoliating your skin. As scrubbing may leave your skin dry hence it is really important to slather on the moisturizer immediately after exfoliating to take care of freshly cleansed pores.
