Beauty Aids From The Kitchen Garden

              All food items affect our health and beauty in some way or the other. The best part of using ingredients from the kitchen garden is that they are natural, pure and cheap. If you are honestly concerned about using pure stuff then why not peep into your kitchen garden and discover the wonderful cosmetics nature has provided us with. Here are some beauty recipes from the kitchen garden.
             
               Cucumber:- To refresh tired eyes, place thin slices of cucumber on your eyelids for 10-15 mins. Wash off with cool water and you will find amazing results. Can be done on full face for the same effect. In summers you can use chilled cucumber slices.
              
              DIY Cucumber Lotion:- Grind a cucumber and squeeze out the juice. This lotion does wonders for dark and oily skin. It should be applied with cotton ball. This lotion makes the skin fair with regular use.
              
              Curry Leaves:- Boil curry leaves in coconut oil and stain and cool it. Use this herbal oil for oiling your hair. It stimulates hair growth and also prevents premature greying.
               
               Mint:- Make a paste of mint leaves and use as a face pack to cure pimples. With regular application you will find your face pimple-free.
             
              Mint Skin Tonic:- Boil 1 tbspn mint leaves in 1/2 a cup of water. Allow to cool and strain it. Have it bottled and refrigerate. This tonic is extremely good for greasy skin.
Added to bath water, an infusion of mint helps cure skin disorders. You can also use mint leaves in hot water while doing home facial.
               
               
             Apples:- Apples are the best toner for an oily skin. Grate a large apple and srpead a layer all over your face and lie down for 15 mins. Wash off with tepid water.
               
               Plums:- Mash the flesh of a few boiled plums and mix with a tspn of almond oil. Best suited for acne prone skin.
