    Yes commercial shampoo are also great like Head and Shoulder or Pantene or Dove. Dove is very gentle to the scalp and my hair become so soft and with volume.
  11. Ginger works as an excellent anti-wrinkle remedy due to its high antioxidant content. Moreover, it helps inhibit the breakdown of elastin, one of the main causes of wrinkles and fine lines. Mix a pinch of grated ginger with a tablespoon of honey. Eat this mixture every morning. You can also drink ginger tea twice daily.
  12. Having a facial wipes is a must in every women's purse especially when we travel. We can clean our face or remove our makeup in the plane by using a handy pack of facial wipes. It is very easy and you don't need water and soap to remove your makeup. I got my natural facial cleansing wipes at Essenzza health and it is very useful for me. These wipes can also remove waterproof mascara and can be used in all skin type.
  13. Being rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, tomato juice is excellent for creating glowing and blemish-free skin. Plus, it helps shrink large pores and cure acne due to its astringent properties. Tomatoes are also good for reducing suntan due to their high lycopene content. Massage your skin with tomato pulp. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse it off with cool water. Follow this simple routine daily for several weeks or until you get the desired results.

    Eggs are great for conditioning your hair. Plus, egg whites combat oily hair and egg yolks are packed with protein that strengthens hair. Apply one-half cup of whisked egg white on damp hair, and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Finally, rinse it off and wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Repeat once every two weeks.
  16. Hi Paul, do you try aloe vera on your skin? How does it works on your skin and how long did you use this product? I use it to treat sunburn and I need to buy aloe vera gel again because summer is fast approaching.
  17. Natural products are the best for our skin because it doesn't cause irritation or breakouts. I used organic papaya or honey in my skin because some vegetables or fruits has chemicals because of the pesticide. It is better to use organic products when you are applying it on your skin.
  18. Honey can treat acne as well and I personally love honey it is great for skin. I used honey on my face too and I love how it works on my skin. Manuka honey sounds expensive and I only use organic honey that can be bought in the organic stores only.
  19. Witch hazel toner really works on my skin too and I didn't get irritated. I agree with iCogito just put moisturizer after putting a toner to make your skin moisturized or hydrated. It can be also used to treat sunburn, bug bites and sting.
  20. I boiled the sweet potato until it become soft. I didn't try to bake it but I like to try it also and see how it works. I also saw some recipes on Pinterest and want to try it at home. You can saw tips and recipes there and keep us updated when you try it.
  21. Milk is a great oil-free cleanser that can make oily skin soft and supple. Milk has alpha hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate the skin and also help maintain the skin’s natural pH balance. Mix two or three drops of sandalwood or lavender oil with two tablespoons of milk. Apply the mixture on your face using a cotton ball. Gently massage the skin for a few minutes to improve blood circulation and then go to sleep. In the morning, wash your face with cold water. Do this daily.
  22. Apples work as a great exfoliating agent and they have mild antiseptic, astringent, and soothing properties that make them a great home remedy for oily skin. The malic acid in apples helps exfoliate dead skin cells and absorbs excess oil from the skin’s surface.

    Yogurt contains lactic acid that helps gently exfoliate the skin and absorbs excess oil from the face. Apply one tablespoon of plain yogurt thoroughly over your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then rinse it off with cool water. Do this once daily.
  24. Papaya is regularly used in various beauty treatments and can also be used to lighten your skin complexion. Papaya is believed to contain natural bleaching properties and the various nutrients in it will make your skin glow with health. Eat papaya as a fruit. The general cleansing properties of papaya will cleanse the skin of impurities that could be causing it to darken.
  25. Sweet potatoes contain a good amount of vitamin A, an essential nutrient for the eyes. Vitamin A improves eyesight and also prevents cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Vitamin A is also required to solve the problem of dry eyes and protect the eyes from both bacterial and viral infections. Sweet potatoes are also rich in beta-carotene, potassium and fiber.
