Popping a pimple without professional assistance still remains controversial. Squeezing a pimple on your own may or may not cause scarring. Some people attest that it hastens the healing of their acnes and no scars appear. As always, there is a different solution for every skin type and acne type. You really don’t need some professional surgical tools to pop a zit. It is something you can do at home on your own time.

If you are one of those people who want to rely on self-treatment rather than getting someone else do the pop their pimple for them and do away with the high dermatologist’s fees, here are some tips on how to gently and effectively squeeze pimples in your facial area.

•Never try to pop a pimple beneath the surface of your facial area. Whiteheads and pustules can be squeezed but papules and blackheads should remain untouched. Be sure to pop acnes that appear to have “heads”.

•Before trying to squeeze a pimple, take a bath or wash your face to soften it and to remove dirt or make up on your skin.

•Make sure that your hands are clean. Wash them thoroughly to prevent possible infection.

•Have two sterilize gauze pads ready. Get each one of them for both of your hands and apply gentle pressure on the pimple.

•Use the gauze pads to remove the pus. Never use your fingernails or your bare fingers. After the white stuff has been squeezed out gently remove it with a clean tissue.

•See to it that the white stuff of your pimple can be easily taken out with a gentle squeeze. If you have a hard time doing so, do not force to pop them out as they may be still imbedded deep in your skin and trying to squeeze them out would just cause scarring.

•If you have a pimple that is hard to squeeze out, make a salt solution by mixing half a cup of warm water and Ľ teaspoon of salt. Apply the solution to the affected area using sterile gauze for about five to ten minutes. They would usually come off easily when you try to pop them again after several days.

Everyone wants smooth, glowing beautiful skin! How many of us can say that we actually posses it? We purchase countless products, undergo expensive treatments and still suffer with dry, flaky or “ashy” skin. In order to see a long lasting change, you must examine your lifestyle. Take time to consider what impact your diet, sleeping habits, activity and skin care routine have on your skin.

1. Be sure to include fresh fruit, nutritious vegetables, whole grains and clean water in your daily diet. Your skin is a living organ. Give it what is needed to stay healthy.

2. Start the day with invigorating stretches. Learn basic yoga and practice it for 10-30 minutes each morning.

3. Cleanse your skin with cold-processed soaps. They contain plant oils that nourish the skin cells. Avoid products with Sodium Laurel Sulfate or other harsh detergents.

4. Exfoliate skin weekly to remove dead skin cells and toxins. Use a scrub with plant-based ingredients to restore moisture and elasticity.

5. After the bath or shower, moisturize the entire body with a mineral oil-free product. Be sure to read labels. Even some “natural products” contain mineral oil. It is a cheap by product of petroleum and does not contribute the health of your skin.

6. Monitor the water temperature when bathing, extremely hot temperatures can be drying as well.

7. Use proper sun protection and limit your exposure to direct sunlight.

8. Retire by 10:00 pm each evening. This allows your body time to heal itself and restore all organ systems. In turn, promoting good skin health.

By following this holistic approach you should experience a significant difference in the health of your skin.

Ever thought of experimenting with your own natural skin care recipes to combat that dry flaky skin?

You have to know that skin basically does everything alone. This means that it can produce enough oil from the sebaceous glands to make it shine and work together perfectly. The problems appear when it becomes dry.

Keeping this in mind there are several solutions you can apply using ingredients already found inside your home or at the local grocery shop.

Remember that what you eat is very important and bad diets or insufficient nutritional ingredients damage every part of the body. To be healthy and have perfect skin a balanced diet is the first factor that has to be taken into consideration. Perfect glowing skin can be achieved.

Have you heard of proteins? Well, they are very important for one’s skin regeneration and repair. Processed food rich in preservatives and salt will take moisture out of your skin. They can also cause the dreaded dry skin everybody is afraid of. Why not eat fish (salmon is the best), turkey, chicken or include in your diet vegetable protein? The all hated vegetables! They contain vegetal protein which is perfect for the body. Avoid frozen food! Vegetables are especially good if fresh.

Why not include in your natural skin care recipes ingredients such as garlic, onions or eggs? The contain Sulfur in a natural form and this substance is very important for the skin. Several multi-vitamins out there also contain sulfur and should be taken into account if your diet is lacking it.

Is your skin cracked? Have you considered being careful that your body receives enough vitamins A and B? Lacks of them cause this. Include in your diet food that contains these vitamins and eat carrots.

Beta-Carotene can be found in them and it’s good not only for your eyes. It plays a significant role in skin care as well.

What you also have to include in your diets number:

* Alpha-Hydroxy acids
* EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids)
* Lactic Acid
* Supplements
* Vitamin E
* Aloe Vera

Another important rule is: Avoid Junk Food! It is simply not good for you from all point of views.

Natural skin care recipes are available everywhere. Some work, some don’t! The best method of choosing one is to ask friends that use them. Also keep in mind that what works for somebody may not work on you! Don’t be discouraged and keep trying.

The best way to keep your skin perfect is by eating healthy and give your body every vitamin and mineral it needs. In most cases there is no need of expensive creams or lotions. A good moisturizer can replace them all if combined with a healthy way of eating.

Use these natural baby skin care tips to protect your baby's sensitive, new skin.

Characteristics of baby skin

It is essential to be very careful with your baby’s skin care. In the first stages of our life, the skin is very delicate, fragile and thin. Baby’s skin is different in functions and structure than the skin of an adult. It has high water content, allows low sweat production and the protection through sebum is almost inexistent.

The babies are very sensitive to temperature changes, unsuitable humidity or harmful and irritating substances. Consider using natural baby skin care products as they are more gentle for your baby's skin. But before you flash out your money, try to compare prices for natural baby skin care and shop around for the best deals first.

Lotions and oils?

Contrary to popular thought, the babies do not need lotions unless their skin is dry. Oils and lotions will not allow your baby’s skin to sweat and can cause a rash or an allergic reaction. Powders should be avoided not only for the effect they have on the skin. Their tiny particles can provoke breathing troubles. If you have to use a powder put it in your hand and then apply it to the baby's skin.

Massage

Babies enjoy being massage. In fact is a very important part of their growth. For you baby’s skin the benefits are huge. The massage stimulates circulation, immune system and tactile sense. Use baby massage oil but pour it onto your palms. Be careful with the room’s temperature (78 degrees Fahrenheit) and humidity.

Bathing

Proper bathing and skin care will maintain the baby’s delicate skin healthy. Newborns don’t need bathing very often (2-4 times a week). Their skin can’t get very dirty if you change their diapers frequently.Sponge baths are required at first. Until the baby's umbilical cord falls off, this area should be avoided to prevent infections. Use only cotton wool or soft washcloths and baby soap/shampoo. Products for adults may contain irritant substances or allergens.

Diaper rash

The soap you use, some brands of disposable diapers or simply dirty diapers can cause skin irritations. Most diaper rashes are provoked by skin irritations. The best way to treat this “disease” is to clean well the area and to let the skin get some air. You should also change the diapers often and use ointments with zinc oxide.

Baby Acne

Acne is very common among newborns. Usually it shows up after 2 or 3 weeks after birth and is present on cheeks, forehead and chin. Baby acne usually clears up on its own, but most parents make the mistake to use oil or lotions. All you need to do is gently cleanse the affected areas with water once a day. You can also use soft blue light when your baby is sleeping as a treatment.

Sun: friend or foe?

While our bodies produce vitamin D when the skin is touched by sunlight, to much exposure can cause sun burns. Baby’s skin is very sensitive and babies under six months should spend very little time under direct sunlight. However, you should not keep your child locked inside the house. Use sun hats, sunglasses and protective clothing.

Your baby’s skin is very sensitive and delicate. we hope that the above natural baby skin care tips can help you to protect your baby's skin better.

For the ultimate natural all round healing potion, try Honey. Thanks to Cleopatra’s milk and honey baths, Honey has become a favourite with one and all to be used in beauty regime. Beside Cleopatra, there were other beauties from the past, who swear by honey being an indispensable ingredient in beauty treatments.

Pollution, dirt, and other chemical agents in the air make the skin lose its ability to retain water, making it look dry, wrinkled and aging the person bit earlier. The natural hydrating and antioxidant properties of honey trap and seal the moisture, rejuvenate the skin, cleanse the complexion leaving it soft and supple.

Honey in its purest form is suitable for all skin types’ even sensitive skin. Beauticians suggest using honey abundantly for radiant complexion. Skin care products like baths, shower gels, face creams, skin lotions, moisturizers, body scrubs and even newborns products contain pure honey.

Treat your self to some simple natural skin care remedies with honey at your home –

- Ľ cup of honey to your bath keeps your skin soft and supple.

- Dry skin = 1 tsp honey, vegetable oil each and Ľ tsp of lemon juice. Pat it on dry areas of your skin, leave for 10 mins and rinse with water.

- Make a moisturizing mask with 1 tsp of honey, 1 egg yolk, ˝ tsp almond oil and 1 tsp yoghurt. Apply on your face, neck and other parts of your body. Leave for 15 minutes and rinse off with water. You skin will feel moisturized and polished with tightened pores.

- For the silky-smooth skin, mix Ľ cup of honey and 3 tsp of rosewater. Apply to face, neck avoiding sensitive areas around the eye. Massage well and rinse with lukewarm water and enjoy the sensation of an all different skin.

- Open the pores on your face by place a cloth dipped in warm water. Smear honey on your face for 20-30 minutes. Rinse first with warm water and then cold water to close the pores.

- Indulge your skin with the paste of 1 tsp of honey, 1 egg white, 1 tsp glycerin and flour. Smooth it over your face, throat, leaving it on for 10 minutes and then washing it off with warm water. Your skin will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

- 4 tbsp of whole milk powder and 2 tbsp of honey make an excellent baby bath.
