3 Best natural soap alternatives used by ancient Indians prescribed by Rajiv Dixit, a great Indian social activist.

1. Multani Mitti with Curd –

Multani mitti is one ancient secret for beautiful skin of Indians. Still, many people in India use multani mitti as  face pack. Now, what all you need to do is mix Multani mitti with curd and make it into paste a night before you use it. The next morning massage your skin with this Multani mitti paste and just wash your skin with warm water. That’s it. This makes your skin glowing and radiant. This helps in making you skin soft too.

2. Besan ( Gram ) flour with malai –

This is the second best alternative for soaps. Mix Besan (Gram) flour with malai and massage your skin with it and wash away with warm water. Gram flour with malai helps in making your skin radiant and pimple free. Even this is a best soap alternative for those with oily skin.

3. Masoor dal (Red lentil) powder with honey –

The first thing is to get some Masoor dal ( in english we call it Red lentil ), and grind it into powder. Then mix some pure honey to it. Then rub this paste on skin as mentioned already and wash away with water. This is the best natural soap alternative to exfoliate skin. This even removes dead cell from your skin and gives your face a much fresh and young look. It softens your skin too.

For better results, you can even mix pure almond oil, fresh milk, honey and curd in any of the above 3 powders mentioned. And one more important thing is, don’t expect best results in one or two days. You need to try these at least for a week or two to experience better results.

Top 10 Acne Remedies

Standard

1. Baking Soda–
Baking soda not only helps eliminate breakouts and reduces inflammation, it is also an exfoliator and helps remove dead skin cells! Because of this, it also works great to reduce any old scars or acne marks. To use it, just take a few teaspoons of baking soda and mix it with warm water until it forms a paste. Apply the paste to your skin. You may want to leave it on for only 10 to 15 minutes the first few times as it may feel powerful. You can gradually increase the time up to an hour or even leave it on overnight (which is what I do). After one use you can see a great difference in your skin.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar– my personal favourite. ..
This natural remedy for acne is another powerful one, it has both antibacterial and antifungal properties. To start out, you may want to dilute a few teaspoons with half cup water or 1/4 cup water as it can be quite powerful when applied directly to your skin. Make sure to use apple cider vinegar that’s raw, unfiltered and labeled as “with the mother”, which has the most nutrients.

3. Coconut Oil–
Coconut oil is antibacterial and antifungal. Coconut oil is also extremely moisturizing and gentle. It helps fight the bacteria and reduce redness. Apply the coconut oil to your skin and massage it in. You can reapply a couple times per day. With coconut oil, there is no need to ever use a moisturizer again, it works so well and doesn’t clog your pores. For optimal benefit, use organic coconut oil that is unrefined.

4. Tea Tree Oil–
Tea tree oil is an essential oil and can be a very powerful all natural remedy for acne, as it is antibacterial. To apply it, mix a small amount (5 to 10 drops) of tea tree oil with a 1/4 cup water. Dip a cotton ball into the mixture and apply it to your skin. You can reapply throughout the day or leave it on under your makeup.

5. Egg Whites–
Egg whites reduce the oil and minimize your pores in addition to drawing out impurities. To use it, separate the egg white from the yolk, use a cotton ball or you can use your fingers to apply the egg white to your skin. After a few minutes you’ll start to feel it tighten, you can leave it on anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour. Afterwards, your skin will have an amazing glow!

6. Lemon Juice–
For this one, you can either use lemon juice or a fresh squeezed lemon. Lemons have natural antibacterial and astringent properties to help clear your skin. Apply the lemon juice to your skin and leave on for 15 minutes to an hour.

7. Garlic–
Not only is garlic a great natural antibacterial when ingested, it also works great topically. To use it, take a clove of garlic and thinly slice it. Rub the slices on your skin, particularly any problem areas, making sure the juice of the garlic is applied. Leave on for 15 minutes to 30 minutes.

8. Ice Cubes–
Rub an ice cube on problem areas to help reduce inflammation. Not only, does the cold close your pores it also forces the bacteria out. You can also splash your face with cold water to achieve similar affects.

9. Cornstarch–
Cornstarch is very soothing and gentle. This is a great natural remedy for acne when you have a lot of redness or irritation. You can apply the cornstarch to your individual breakouts or to your whole face. leave it on overnight and find a huge difference in the morning!

10. Aloe–
Aloe is very soothing and reduces inflammation and redness. To use it, apply the gel to your skin with your fingers, you can apply it several times a day. If you have an aloe plant, it would be even better as you get the aloe fresh, without any added ingredients.

Zindagi

Abhi dum nikla nahi
Thoda aur chalne do
Hawao ka rukh badla nahi
Tufaan ko aane do

Maine haar maani nahi
kashti mein hun sawar
Abhi saas baaki hain
Doob jaane do patwar

Door kinara ho sahi
Main chalang laga du
Tairna sikha nhi magar
Samandar ko dubaa dun

Kinare pahuchna mumkin
hai Magar itna zaruri nahi
Kyunki
Zindagi samundar mein hai
Kinhi kinaro mein nhi…
