Posted on March 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

“Acne Home Remedies For Fair Skin”

Mixing Baking Soda W/ Water: The most generic, though effective of acne home remedies. The baking soda uses an all-natural alcohol free method of drying up the excess sebum under the skin. Mix a cup of baking soda with a little water until it becomes a paste, apply to the infected spot (not the whole face). Leave on for 15 minutes and gently wipe off. Feel fabulous.

Get Smelly, Mush Up Some Acne Home Remedies w/ Garlic: Ready to wreak? The very effective method is a powerhouse in acne treatment. Peel back a clove of garlic, chop it up till its a mush, then apply to whole face for 20 minutes. Remember to wash it off, unless you like the smell of garlic.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Water Solution: Ouch! This one might leave a little sting if your not careful. If your skin is sensitive be sure to dilute the vinegar with water appropriately. This is one of my favorite acne home remedies because it’s so strong and gets to work pretty darn fast. Apple cider vinegar is a strong astringent packed with skin protecting vitamins. To use, mix with water and apply with a cotton swab. Don’t rinse.

The Orange Peel Facial: Time to smell daringly citric! It’s the most fruity of our acne home remedies. Peel the orange, flatten it with a tenderizing utensil or other blunt object (surprisingly, even a hammer works) and apply the peel to your acne area. (You can even go as far as taping it on your face). Leave on for 20 minutes and remove. Be careful not to snatch the tape off too fast. Ouch!

Combining Aspirin and Water: Headache pills for the face? I’ve never tried this one myself but I’m hearing it’s very powerful so I wouldn’t over-do it. To use, crush an aspirin and add a little water until it becomes a paste. Apply the paste to a single pimple spot only and let it sit overnight. Rinse at wake.

Tomato Juices Work Wonders: Tomato juice anyone? For this home remedy take a tomato and place it in the blender or chop and squeeze. If you decide to use a blender for your acne home remedies, make sure you clean it thoroughly beforehand. This way, you wouldn’t have any leftover residues from last weeks chocolate shake sitting on your face. Apply the juices for an hour then rinse off. But be warned, frequent use of tomato juice will dry out your skin. Try other acne home remedies from time to time.

Green Tea Ice Cube: Got spare green tea lying around? If you do, then you got one acne’s greatest home remedies. Freeze green tea into an ice cube and apply to a specific spot. Use until swelling decreases or it melts away.

The Lemony Rose Water Supreme Combo: Combining these 2 deadly acne killers will definitely thwart the competition (no pun intended). To use, mix a half cup of rosewater with a quarter of lemon juice and apply to infected area. The rosewater will repair damaged skin and the astringent will suck up excess sebum. The ideal acne fighting tag-team.

Break an Egg, Clear a Face: Egg whites are the perfect facial cleansers and make pretty strong acne home remedies. To keep the acne away, break an egg, separate the white from the yolk, apply to whole face and feel your skin tighten. Wash away in an hour and feel refreshed! Or just really eggy.

Green Tea Ice Cube: For this method, you get to eat the majority of the strawberry, and the best part is strawberries are really good for you! Eat the berry part, save the crown part and apply to infected area. After 20 minutes rinse and relax. Like my orange peel strategy, you can feel free to use tape.

Potato Slice Plain and Simple: Potato slices work wonders. Slice one, hold it on your face for as long as you want and enjoy. You can leave it on all day if you wish. Cant have too many potato’s. Simple acne home remedies personified!

The Surefire Clay Mask: Well I saved the best of my acne home remedies for last and for a good reason. I have heard umpteen absolutely uplifting stories about these things and I’m fully convinced that these masks are the best solution to getting rid of acne overnight. If you need clay, visit Mountains Rose Herbs and do a search for “clay” – It cost $4.95 a pound, (a good bargain cheaper than most acne products you can buy over the counter). To apply, take one TSP of clay and mix it with water until it becomes a paste. Then apply to infected spot and leave on as long as you want. Use for overnight is best.

“Acne Home Remedies For Dryer Skins”

Stir up some avocado and honey: My best choice for a homemade moisturizing mix. Mash up some avocado, add some honey to make a paste, and apply to infected area. Do not overdo the honey. To much honey will lead to clogged pores. Apply to face and wash off in 20 minutes. Avoid rubbing in.

Olive Oil Absorption: As with all skin moisturizing agents be careful of applying too much and doing more harm than good. Take a table-spoon, dilute with a very little bit of water, and apply to infected area. Let sit for 20 minutes and pat dry. Simple acne home remedies at it’s finest.

Astringent Honey Powerhouse Combination: Honey tends to work miracles as a natural skin rejuvenator. Combine that with any astringent and you got an acne fighter. Use any astringent I’ve recommended in this post and you should be fine. Just remember to wash your dosage. Apply for 15 minutes and enjoy.

“Acne Home Remedies For Oily Skins”

Lemon Juice Suction: This one is for those fiery, tough chicks. Lemon Juice is the most potent of all Acne Home Remedies and especially effective on oily skins. Slice a lemon in half, squeeze out its juices and apply it to face using a cotton swab. Be wary, as burning and bleaching of the skin may occur if you over-do it.

The Solution More Powerful than Lemon Juice Alone: This one is for the daredevils. This will result in a super sucker solution that’s almost a surefire way to get rid of that pimple. But as with all acne home remedies, with great risk comes great reward. Be careful of burning and bleaching of the skin. Same as before chop lemon in half, squeeze juices and add salt to the mixture. Apply to face and enjoy. As with most acne home remedies, remember to rinse after 10 minutes.

Just a Little Bit of Baby Powder: On the contrary many argue that baby powder outright destroys your skin. Which it can if your not careful. So unless your absolutely sure you can apply the necessary amount, don’t bother. Add a very small amount of baby powder with a little water to make a slightly moist paste and apply to spots. Do not rub in or your risk blocking your pores and making the problem worse.

Toothpaste for the face: A classic example on everyone’s acne home remedies list. It’s simple and dangerously effective. All you have to do is dab a quarter size amount of toothpaste and let the astringent properties eat through your pimple. Tips for this one? Only one, stay away from gel toothpastes.

A Simple Wipe-Off Might Do The Trick: This is the only entry I wont consider to be an acne home remedy but, its so effective and inexpensive, I decided it would make a perfect addition to this list. C&C Oil wipes do a spectacular job of ridding your face of those nasty excess oil reserves I talked about earlier, and I constantly get reviews from readers who can vouch for them. If you have oily skin I urge you to pick some of these things up ASAP. They just might be what you need to manage your pimple production, on demand.

Natural Home Remedies – Who Really Invented Them and How Can They Help You?

Posted on March 16, 2017 in Uncategorized

You certainly might rely on any one of the many natural home remedies you have heard about when you have a mild ailment or a common disease. It is perfectly normal for people to rely on something they have at their disposal rather than run to the doctor or to the drugstore when they are not feeling well. There are also cases in which the standard treatment of a medical condition may be painful or not sufficient to relieve the symptoms so sufferers resort to using home remedies to feel better. You can also use various homemade remedies for insect stings and for treating stains at home. In fact, such home remedies are much more common than you might think. But where do the home remedies come from? Who came up with them?

It is worth defining what natural home remedies are first. These are different substances that are made from products commonly found in the home. These include herbs, spices, other cooking ingredients, vegetables and fruits. The medications are made through different processes. The instructions for preparation are described in recipes.

It is not known exactly who invented the homemade remedies that we know today. In the past, people did not have medications like we do today. Sciences, such as chemistry and biology, were not invented. It is believed that many of the medicinal properties of different plants and foods have been discovered accidentally. For instance, a person with a stomach upset decided to chew a good smelling plant and he felt better. In turn, others started using it as well. As people began to learn more about the plants, vegetables and fruits, they started making more complex recipes including various ingredients.

In ancient and medieval times people did not have the opportunity to describe the medicinal properties or the recipe for one treatment to one another. Writing was invented, but it was accessible only to small privileged groups of people, so the recipes for the home remedies were passed by word of mouth from one person to another and from one generation to the next. Basically, these remedies are much like the folklore songs that we know from our ancestors. Someone somewhere invented them, so they became widespread by word of mouth.

With the invention of the first primitive machines for printing books, the first cookbooks began to appear. They often contained various recipes for home remedies as well as for dishes and drinks. In some cases, the actual dishes were recommended as remedies. One notable example is the chicken soup that we use today to get relief from colds. Other remedies that were used for medicinal purposes solely have lost their original purpose to some extent. The popular Italian liquors that are served as digestifs today were actually medications in the past. Indeed, they aid digestion and prevent bloating, gas and constipation. Another proof that they were originally invented as remedies is that the taste of some of the popular digestifs is quite bitter.

Some might think that the herbal remedies originating from China and India are actually home remedies, but this is not necessarily the case. Some were really invented by people and prepared at home, but others could only be prepared by healers who knew the exact ingredients and the necessary amounts as well as the methods for preparation. These special cures were actually not home remedies.

For instance, congee soup was used and is still used as a home remedy in China. On the other hand, the herbal remedies in traditional Chinese medicine are prepared using different herb ingredients depending on the individual condition of the sufferer. Acupuncture is another form of traditional treatment, but cannot be performed at home by a non-professional.

Overall, it was the people who invented home remedies. The actual names of the inventors are not known, which is not the case with modern medications such as penicillin. With time the single ingredients often became replaced by more complex recipes. As new plants were discovered and new substances for home use were invented, they inevitably became used as remedies, provided that they were attributed medicinal properties. The recipes were passed from one generation to the other. They have reached us through our grandparents and parents. The home remedies were used by our ancestors and we are using them today.

3 Major Factors To Quality Arthritis Home Remedies

Posted on March 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

Determining the Quality

Have you tried to sort through the masses of alleged arthritis home remedies on the internet? Have you ever wondered what makes a remedy effective and how we can distinguish the good ones from the bad? Well, it all boils down to a few key factors that we can apply to any new remedy we would like to try.

At first glance, there are a few questions we need to ask ourselves when trying out any new arthritis home remedies. Does it reduce inflammation? And if so, how does it? Does it provide nutrients to aid in the rebuilding process of lost connective tissue due to arthritis? Does it prevent arthritis from occurring in other joints of my body? Or could it help me lose weight to prevent the extra strain on weight barring joints affected by arthritis (if that is a factor)?

There are a few ways your arthritis home remedies can reduce inflammation in your body. Creating alkalinity to reduce inflammation is a good start. Alkaline remedies can also have a number of other amazing health benefits.

Alkalizing Arthritis Home Remedies

When we consume alkaline foods, drinks or other remedies, we create an alkaline pH balance within our body. When our body is in an alkaline state, it is much harder for it to create inflammation, thus we can reduce our joint pain and the progression of the disease simply by consuming foods or drinks on the high side of the pH scale. Alkaline arthritis home remedies must have a pH higher than seven, or contain substances that create a pH higher than seven.

The majority of easy to make arthritis home remedies are drink concoctions made up of a combination of alkalizing anti-oxidants. The most common remedies I see recommended are simple drinks with added alkaline vitamins such as a glass of plain water with a slice of lemon or lime.

You may be thinking… Aren’t lemons and limes acidic? Yes, they are acidic by nature, but they contain vitamins such as vitamin C that has the ability to create an alkalizing effect on the body once absorbed. The same thing can be said for the majority of citrus fruits.

These two simple remedies serve as a triple threat to arthritis. They alkaline, hydrate and detoxify, which brings me to another key factor to creating your own arthritis home remedies.

Anti-oxidants for Arthritis Home Remedies

There is a growing theory that low amounts of dietary anti-oxidants can cause and contribute to the development and progression of arthritis. It makes sense when you understand the oxidative damage that can be caused by a low intake of anti-oxidants. Luckily, incorporating anti-oxidant rich foods can drastically reduce oxidative damage on our body and be easy and delicious.

There are many drinks and snacks we can whip up at home that can provide us with a hefty dose of anti-oxidants. The majority of vitamins are detoxifying on the body; as long as you are intaking naturally sourced vitamins and not synthetic vitamins.

This isn’t to say that all vitamin supplements are synthetic. Some are natural and some are synthetic. If you can’t tell the difference, just make sure to buy your vitamins from a health food store and not a drug store.

Berry or vegetable mixes are amongst my favorite arthritis home remedies. I know that right off the bat these don’t sounds overly interesting, but as I said, a good arthritis home remedy can be as simple as a glass of water with lemon or lime.

Berries can provide a strong dose of anti-oxidants with little effort. You can whip up a berry smoothie with only a handful of blueberries, three or so strawberries and maybe even a half a banana for a bit more flavor.

This one berry smoothie can provide three out of the five keys factors to great arthritis home remedies.
