Just before you plan to apply mehndi on your hands, make sure your hands are clean and properly dried. Avoid any cream and oil on your hands as they act as a barrier on your skin and minimise the absorption of the mehndi into your skin. You can, however, make an exception by applying eucalyptus oil to your hands. This helps in darkening the colour of your mehndi and it also smells good.
When you peel the henna off, avoid washing it off with water, especially with soapy water. Soapy water can lead to a greater fading of your mehndi, thus making it look ghastly. Instead, apply balm and cooking oil (as stated above) and scrape off the henna by rubbing your hands together. Within a few hours, rich colour will develop, thus granting your wish for a better and darker mehndi.
The smoke from the cloves being heated helps in the darkening of mehndi. You can try this method by letting the smoke come in contact with your hand. However, be careful and stop when they start to hurt.
After the mehndi dries for a bit, dab lemon juice and sugar on it with the help of a cotton ball. Note:Do not use the mixture of lemon and sugar to an excessive amount. Although adequate use is helpful to get a darker mehndi colour, overuse of the mixture might dilute the henna, thus ruining it.
Honey may work as a natural remedy for cracked heels. Honey has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Research shows that honey can help heal and cleanse wounds, and moisturize the skin. You can use honey as a foot scrub after a soak, or apply it as a foot mask overnight.
Applying ice to the heel for 10 to 15 minutes twice a day can reduce the heel pain.
Avoid high heels. They can shift your center of gravity and strain your lower back. Stick to a one-inch heel. If you have to go higher, bring along a pair of low-heeled shoes and slip into them if you become uncomfortable.
Practice stress relief for back pain relief Stress tends to make back pain worse. That may be another good reason to practice yoga. Other ways to reduce stress include treating yourself well, avoiding over-scheduling your days, and taking time to enjoy life
Burning eye remedies Mix a small amount of baby shampoo with warm water. Dip a cotton swab into the water, and then use it to clean the base of your eyelashes. This method unclogs oil glands and minimizes inflammation.
Stay Awake Naturally - Deep breathing raises blood oxygen levels in the body. This slows your heart rate, lowers blood pressure, and improves circulation, ultimately aiding mental performance and energy.
Stop thinking that alcohol helps sleep - People often think that alcohol helps sleep, but it actually robs you of deep sleep, which is essential for feeling well rested. When the effects of alcohol wear off during the night, you’ll probably be wide awake again.
Alcohol reduction or avoidance can reduce numbness in our body. Alcohol contains toxins that can cause nerve damage and numbness. Alcohol also usually makes the symptoms of chronic pain and inflammatory conditions worse and can even cause flare-ups of symptoms.
Numbness: Ice can help reduce swelling that can put pressure on nerves. Apply cold compresses or wrapped icepacks to numb legs and feet for 15 minutes at a time several times daily.
Cotton pillowcases can absorb your hair care products and be unnecessarily harsh on your strands. Switch to a silk or satin pillowcase to maximize your beauty sleep.
GIVE STRANDS A BREAK FROM PONYTAILS : Ponytails are a classic for a reason. Come on, just think about how convenient it is to be able to sweep all of your hair off your face. Still, that doesn’t mean they’re right for 100% of the time. Pulling your hair up every day can put unnecessary strain on your locks. Try wearing your hair down more often, rocking lower and looser ponytails, and using softer hair ties that won’t pinch.
DON’T DRY YOUR HAIR USING A TOWEL :A towel totally seems like the obvious way to remove excess water and start drying your hair post-shower, but it may not be what’s best. The better option is to squeeze out excess water and then dry off using an old cotton T-shirt, which is gentler than a towel.
Prepare a mixture of bleach and water. You can also use a combination of bleach and water to address spider webs. This is best used for live webs rather than cobwebs. This will get rid of spider eggs and kill any spiders still living in them.
Spider Web control in future: Turn out the lights. Many insects are attracted to light, and spiders are attracted to the all-you-can eat buffet of insects. Turn off outdoor lights when you’re inside so bugs will buzz off elsewhere and, hopefully, the spiders will follow. If outdoor lighting is a must, try to keep the fixtures and bulbs away from doors. You can also change the frequency of the lights to make it less attractive.
Spiders tend to dislike the taste of essential oils: For best effect, use neem oil and tea tree oil. Mix about two tablespoons of dish soap into warm water. Then, add 5 drops of tea tree oil and an ounce of neem oil.
Try allowing eggs to come to room temperature for one hour before placing into boiling water to help with cracking.
