Honey and Orange Therapy - Mix one teaspoons each honey and orange juice with egg white. Apply on the face, to make it soft and smooth. Wash it off after 20 minutes. Suits all skin types.

Fruit Mask for all skin types: Fruits like banana, apple, papaya and orange can be mixed together and applied on the face. They should be mashed or made into a pulp. Keep it on for 20 to 30 minutes. Wash off with water.

Avocado Mix - Mix together 1 ripe avocado, with one teaspoon olive oil and egg yolk. Apply on the face and leave on for 20 to 30 minutes. Wash off. Avocado moisturises and nourishes the skin.

Wheat Bran and Aloe VeraTherapy - Take one tablespoon choker (wheat bran), one teaspoon each orange peel powder and curd and one tablespoon aloe vera gel. Mix together and apply on the face, washing it off after 30 minutes.

Cucumber Cooling Mask: Cucumber juice (or pulp) can be mixed with two teaspoons powdered milk and one egg white. Put the ingredients in a blender, for a smooth paste. Apply on face and neck and rinse off with water after half an hour.

Lemon and Rose water therapy for Oily skin: Take one tablespoon lemon juice and one tablespoon rose water. Add crushed mint leaves and let it stand for one hour. Strain the leaves and apply the liquid on the face. Wash it off after 20 minutes.

Summer Mask: To one tablespoon honey, add 15 drops of orange juice, one tablespoon oats and one tablespoon rose water. Mix together and apply on the face. Wash off after 15 minutes.

Hair :

Olive Oil therapy - For extremely dry and damaged hair, mix together a little olive oil and the yolk of an egg. Apply this on the hair. Tie an old scarf on the head and leave the mixture on for an hour. Then, shampoo the hair, using a mild shampoo.

Coconut and Almond oil therapy for split ends: Heat pure coconut oil or almond oil and apply on the scalp and hair. Then dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the hot towel around the head, like a turban. Keep it on for 5 minutes. Repeat the hot towel wrap 3 or 4 times. Leave the oil on overnight and wash your hair the next morning.

Tea water and lemon hair Rinse to add shine: Have a tea-water and lemon rinse for shiny hair. Tea water can be made by boiling used tea leaves again in enough water. You should have 5 to 6 cups of tea-water after boiling. Cool, strain, add the juice of a lemon to the tea-water and use it as a last rinse after shampoo.
