Hi! I'm Ruchika from India.

I love gathering thoughts, reading people, thinking memories, experiencing everything, learning life, ...and collecting feelings...:)

This is your place if you want to know all sorts of home remedies for all sorts of things! Heck, you can ask me the remedy for any problem and also share with me the ones you know.

They aren't only easy, cheap and beneficial to use, they are awesome fun to create too!

(All the remedies mentioned here are suitable to normal type of skin and hair. But for your own sake, please just try and test them on little body areas first.)

Body butter is a luxurious way to moisturize your skin. As with any luxury, it can be expensive.

—Make your own by mixing 4ozs each of Shea butter and jojoba oil with 1oz beeswax and 3 teaspoons any essential oil.

Oily skin needs an astringent to help remove the excess. Make your own exfoliating astringent with this recipe.

Lemon Face Mask

Mix 2 tsps each of lemon pulp, honey, and water with 4 tbsps of clay. Apply the mask to your face and leave on for fifteen minutes. Rinse with warm water.

Cleansing your skin twice a day wards off blemishes and keeps your skin healthy. Plain yogurt mixed with honey makes a great cleanser and moisturizer. Apply to your face and leave on for ten minutes. Wash off with warm water.

Another great cleansing mask. Beat one egg yolk until frothy. Add 1/2c of both milk and a peeled and mashed avocado. Mix with a fork until it is the consistency of a lotion.

Exfoliating your skin regularly to remove dead skin cells, toxins, and other deposits on your skin which could dull your complexion and lead to blemishes is a mandatory segment of a good skin care regiment. There are several ingredients you can use to make your own exfoliating mask.

—Salt or Sugar Body Scrub: Pour ¼ cup of table salt or granulated sugar into a small bowl or container. Pour olive oil into the container over the salt until it covers the salt. Stir the mixture. Rub the scrub all over your body and into your skin. Rinse thoroughly.

Moisturizing your skin keeps it soft and smooth. It also helps ward off premature wrinkles. Sensitive and oily skin can be irritated by strong or harsh ingredients. Natural ingredients can help reduce or eliminate the problem. Mixing your own mask will allow you to control which ingredients are included.

—Moisturizing exfoliation mask: 1/3c quick cooking oatmeal, 2 tbsps honey & plain yogurt each, one egg white, and ½ cup of hot water. Mix water and oatmeal. Set aside and allow to cool and thicken while you blend the rest of the ingredients together with a mixer. Combine the two mixtures and blend well. Apply the mixture to your face and leave on for fifteen minutes. Rinse with warm water to remove.
