Blemishes.. No More!
Femina Salon and Spa|January 2020
Dark patches and discolouration are annoying, period. To help in diminishing the appearance of these, here are 10 ingredients that you can use directly from your kitchen

A flawless complexion is every girl’s dream but this may not often be the case. Sun damage, allergic reactions, pollution, clogged pores, diet, a genetic skin condition, lifestyle choices and several other reasons contribute towards skin damage. It, in turn, might leave stubborn blemishes on your skin. A blemish could pop up in the form of discolouration, dark spots or marks; a visit to a dermatologist is a preferred way of treating blemishes. However, some kitchen ingredients too can be effective in getting rid of the discoloured patches.

USING WITCH HAZEL CAN BE EFFECTIVE

Native to the US, witch hazel has been used as a quick fix to get rid of spots and blemishes. This herb works as a natural astringent that dries out the oils present in acne. It also works towards toning skin, reducing oily scalp and skin conditions, fighting acne and moisturising among other benefits. Apart from blemishes, witch hazel also doubles as an ointment for burns, wounds and cuts. Apply a drop of witch hazel using a cotton swab evenly across skin to lighten blemishes and even skin tone.

How to Care for Your Skin During Menopause

By the time they reach menopause — which officially begins one year after a woman’s last period — many women think they have their lives figured out. Careers are well established; children are grown and independent; and there’s more time for leisure and self-care. Yet many women in their 40s and 50s are surprised to suddenly notice changes on their skin, including acne and age spots. Fortunately, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology say that while many of these changes are inevitable due to hormones, there is a lot women can do at home to lessen these effects. To care for your skin during menopause, Diane S. Berson, MD, FAAD recommends the following tips:
