Cleaning the wound and applying pressure and ice are important first steps in treating a cut on your lips. Applying sesame oil, grape seed oil, coconut oil, or safflower oil can help heal minor cuts. Aloe vera, honey, chamomile, and turmeric can help too. See a doctor for serious wounds.
Managing oily skin takes extra effort, but it’s possible. Aim to manage excess sebum instead of trying to dry it out. Start with a cleansing oil to dissolve sebum, dirt, and makeup. Wash it away with an oil-free face wash that doesn’t have fragrance. Apply a face mask to soak up extra sebum, and finish with a moisturizer to avoid dryness. Honey, green tea, papaya, and clay are ideal natural ingredients for oily skin.
Safflower oil rich in beneficial linoleic acid offers many benefits for your skin. It can fight acne, wrinkles, and dry skin. It also helps heal wounds and lighten your tan. And it can improve the barrier function of skin when it is compromised by essential fatty acid deficiency.
Most commercial sunscreens contain harmful substances like oxybenzone, triclosan, parabens, and phthalates. These compounds disrupt hormonal functioning, can cause cell damage and mutation, and increase the risk of cancer. Try and find sunscreens that use titanium and zinc as the active ingredient as well as natural oils like coconut oil, shea butter, and carrot oil. Some sun exposure can also be beneficial to get the required amount of vitamin D.
Applying buttermilk, a paste of turmeric powder and water, aloe vera, or radish juice can help fade your tan. Licorice tea, crushed watermelon or soy milk could work too. Also try using a face pack made of bitter orange peels, honey and yogurt or buttermilk, honey, and oats.
Worried about thinning hair? Genetics and aging can play a part in determining hair growth. Hereditary pattern baldness, physical or psychological stress, sudden hormonal changes, thyroid problems, nutritional deficiencies, damaging hairstyles, scalp infections, alopecia areata, and certain medications may also hamper hair growth.
Melanin is the pigment that makes skin darker. Many natural ingredients can reduce melanin levels and help tackle uneven skin. Apply avocado pulp, unpasteurized soymilk, buttermilk, or a turmeric and milk paste. Sunflower oil and arnica infused oil can also work. So can aloe vera gel, licorice, and radish juice.
