Yoghurt

I don't think there are very many homes that don't have yoghurt.Yoghurt is a one goodness which you can either get at the local market or make it yourself at home.Good yoghurt being the one with cultures.Most yoghurt that we get in the market always says there is some prebiotic culture in it ,which is a good thing.

Now the beauty remedies that I'm going to mention here includes yogurt as a main ingredient.Just for reference...yoghurt shouldn't be too runny.If you have sort of runny yoghurt, you can always take a cheesecloth or clean cotton cloth, throw in the yoghurt,tie into a pouch and hang it over the sink or in a colander and let it drain overnight or for a couple of hours. The resulting yoghurt is thick,super creamy and ah ! so beautiful to hold in your hands.


Besides yoghurt being used in main courses and salads or as a drink...it has other wonderful uses.You don't have to throw it away just because the date will be up the next morning.


OK to the point now: 

Sunburns and Tans: Well, they say its not good to sit in the sun without protection and there's a technique to Tans.I'm an Indian ,so I have my all natural tan.Anyhow.....come back from a trip at the beach....apply or lather on some yoghurt over your face and body and leave it so for 15 minutes.Then wash it off with cool water.You can add a bit of turmeric powder or haldi to the yoghurt if you want.

Moisturizer: can give good moisture to your skin...so if you have dry skin or blotchy skin...try this remedy.

Acne: It says its great for acne.I wouldn't know about acne coz I have combination skin and break out rarely.But if you have acne, apply yoghurt and keep it on half an hour and wash it off with cool water.

Wrinkles: It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles.It contains Alpha-hydroxy acids which is good for the skin.

Hair: It works as a conditioner and prevents dandruff.Apply on hair and keep it on for 25 minutes and then wash it off with mild shampoo.If you have frizzy hair, this is absolutely fantastic.I have personally tried this,so its fabulous.I can vouch for that.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Fibroids

One of the many things that grow inside a uterus and cause problems for some while others barely know about it in their life are FIBROIDS.I was recently diagnosed with multiple fibroids and cysts when my usual monthly periods became a little too unbearable.We got an ultrasound done which led to many other gynecologists doing the same thing for confirmation.

My fibroids are small but I have been told that my periods will be stopped for a couple of months and regular ultrasounds will be done to ensure that no fibroids are growing out of proportions or are getting benign or malignant,which again is done through a biopsy.I just thought I will write about a  bit of my journey as I spend this time scared.

I told a couple of my friends and they all had scary stories to tell about how some relative didn't take care of themselves and were finally diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and died from it.I had my share of panic attack yesterday night and after a proper informative chat with my …
