Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii) Essential Oil is excellent for mature skin. As with all essential oils, it cannot be applied directly to the skin. It has to be diluted before applying such as in a lotion or cream.

Serla – United States
Use honey and milk on your face for 20 minutes. I use it on my face twice a week. It makes my skin very soft.

Sehar – Pakistan
For healthy and fresh skin use glycerine, lemon juice, and rose water in equal amounts and add two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix it all together and use it everyday at night.

Namrata – India
Use a little rotten papaya to make your skin fresh and fair because there is papain enzyme in papaya.

Rose – United States
Make a scrub at home by putting sugar and brown sugar in a bowl, mix a little olive oil into it and when in the shower scrub in circular motions all over your body. Rinse off and when you get out of the shower pat dry with a towel, then moisturize while your skin is still damp, not wet. You will be glowing!

Dane – South Africa
To get your skin glowing use honey in its most natural form for all skin types and apply it to the skin with a drop or two of neroli and lavender essential oil. Lavender allows good blood flow to the skin and helps with wrinkles or acne, etc. Neroli makes the skin glow. While honey could feel sticky it is extremely nourishing for the skin. Leave this on for about 10 to 45 minutes. It really works well.

Anu – Norway
I use Udo’s choice oil for massaging my face every day, preferably at night time. It has really helped me to get healthy and youthful looking and feeling skin.

Cleansing Skin Care Tips

Jade – United Kingdom
Wash your face with baby wipes and then get a really nice moisturiser and do this two times a day. It does wonders for the skin.

Chewy – United States
I would like to the following tip to this skin care tips page. When washing your face with water always make sure to wash the top of the forehead because sweat will come down from there and make your head oily. I know because it happens to me. Wash your face clean at least five times daily. Do not always wait until it gets dirty to wash your face.

Jane – Nigeria
Always cleanse your skin with mild soap, especially after the day's work is done because it will free the skin from dirt that accumulates on your skin during the day. I always use aloe vera to clean my face and I look younger than my age. I am 25 years old but look like a teenager of 18-19.

Saleha – Pakistan
I do not use expensive lotions and creams for cleansing my skin. I basically only use rose water. It does an effective job at cleaning my skin and the rose water is also soothing for the skin and very refreshing.

Zhel – Philippines
To properly cleanse the skin on your face, you must know what type of skin you have. I have oily skin and to those who also have oily skin, here are some cleansing skin care tips. Use warm water to loosen the dirt, then use cold water to rinse. Use toners and astringents containing alcohol and always use a light, non-greasy liquid cleanser. Very oily skin needs no extra moisturizing at all while you are in your teens.

Acne Skin Care Tips

Jetendar - India
All men and women of all ages like healthy skin. Proper skin care is very important. Skin cleansing is an important part of any skin care routine. Most cleansers contain oil, water, and surfactants. The oil dissolves the oil on your face, surfactants dissolve dirt and makeup, and the water washes it all away. The secret is finding the right mix of oil. Skin cleansing involves a variety of techniques with the aim of removing surface dirt and substances which can accumulate and cause clogging of the pores of the skin. Regular skin cleansing is recommended to help maintain a healthy, blemish-free complexion.

Harisa - India
Grind fresh mint leaves with a little amount of water and apply that paste to the face and any part of body. Using this procedure for at least ten days will remove pimples and scars left after pimples. This is a safe and natural process with no side-effects.

Rose – United States
Witch hazel has helped my skin clear up more than anything else I have tried. Thayers brand has a variety of different scents. My favourite is their witch hazel with rose water. It is all natural and there isn't any alcohol to irritate your skin. Also, it smells great and refreshing.

Shaving Skin Care Tips

Julie - United States
To prevent razor bumps, use a shaving gel and sharp razor. Always moisturize the skin with a good quality moisturizer after shaving. Exfoliating prior to shaving and on a regular basis will help prevent the formation of ingrown hairs.

Ingrown Hair



Tim - United States
Here is a shaving tip that I just recently discovered. Do not shave immediately after applying shave gel or shave cream. Let the gel or cream sit on your face for 2 to 3 minutes before shaving. If you use shave gel with menthol, you will feel a cooling or tingling sensation when it is the right time to shave. By letting the shave lotion moisturize and do its work, you get a much better and less irritating shave.

Skin Discoloration Tips

Sundra - United States
Brown spots on the hands are usually the result of overexposure to the sun (solar lentigo, sun spots, liver spots). Depending on the individuals skin type and color and type and severity of the spot, their visibility can be reduced with liquid nitrogen, chemical peels, of laser light therapy.

Apply ordinary vaseline on your face and it will help make your skin look soft and moisturised. Use it once a day as a night cream.

I use loads of moisturizer with spf factor 15-30 every day and a good night cream. I use no soap but splash on tepid water on face after using baby wipes to cleanse face. I have done this since I was 12 years old. My beauty therapist says I have skin of a 40 year old. I am 55 this year.

For dry skin after showering, put lotion on all over your body. It could be any lotion of your choice but for extra dry skin I recommend buttermilk or shea butter because it is a thicker lotion.

Skin Care Tips for Skin Diseases

Chantelle – Australia
I use Vaseline to treat and remove the rashes that appear on my skin and body.

Feet Skincare Tips

To smooth rough skin on the feet, soak feet in warm water. Next, remove the softened dry skin or calluses with a foot file. Repeat the exfoliation procedure only once a week. Use a foot moisturizing cream on a regular basis. A cream with antibacterial agents (such as tea tree oil) is best because it helps protect against foot fungus.
