Day 11 : Hair & Skin Care Tips - Part II

Last week I applied a turmeric + milk mask to my face and I felt a tingling sensation on my skin due to the active nature of the turmeric.
I didn't get to do anything for my hair, so this week I'll be taking care of both my skin and hair.

Hair Care

1. Egg + Olive Oil Mask - Beat two eggs and add some olive oil to it. Apply it to your hair and leave it on for an hour. Wash it off with shampoo to replenish hair and restore its softness and shine.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse - Apply a one to one mixture of warm water and apple cider vinegar to your hair. Rinse it thoroughly after 5 minutes to get rid of the apple cider smell. This give you shiny bouncy hair.

Skin Care

1. Potato pack - Potato is a good absorbent of excess oil and sebum and it also removes dirt and grease from the skin. It reduces dark circles, puffiness under the eyes, blemishes and acne marks.

  Thin slices of potato can be applied over the pimples. You can also grate the potato and the juice can be applied over the pimples and acne. Sliced potato can be kept over the eyes to reduce the dark circles and puffiness. (source :

2. Baking soda - It helps eliminate breakouts and reduces inflammation, exfoliates, helps remove dead skin cells, and reduces old scars or acne marks. A few teaspoons of baking soda mixed with warm water till it forms a paste. Apply the paste to your skin, leave it on for only 10 to 15 minutes the first few times as it may feel strong. Gradually increase the time up to an hour After one use you can see a great difference in your skin
