Tips from nature!

If you know the characteristics and properties of plants and flowers, you can find some good friends for your beauty...

Wear a flower in Your Hair!

It takes a confident girl to wear a flower in her hair. The look is dramatic and attracts attention. With all the ladylike fashion in trend, catch the last of summer goodness by putting a flower in your hair and experimenting with a new look!
You can use an artificial flower, but nothing beats the real thing! If you are using a single bud or blossom, tuck it neatly behind one ear and then the other to compare which looks better. You can also pin the flower to your ponytail holder with a small clip. A word of caution: never put flowers behind both your ears, or someone may start questioning your sanity!

Natural Beauty Facial

For a relaxing and refreshing facial, pour some boiling water over dried chamomile flowers (you can get them from most supermarkets) in a bowl. Inhale slowly and deeply while holding your face a few inches above the water. Rinse your hair with the left over liquid. Apart from benefits to your skin, this treatment also has various health benefits for the nose, throat and lungs. Not only that, chamomile has a relaxing effect on people and is especially helpful in curing colds and bronchial infections.

The Cucumber

Cucumbers have been cultivated in India for over 3000 years. Cucumbers are a member of the gourd family together with melons, squash and pumpkins. There are about 20 known species of cucumbers, divided into three classes, table or slicing, pickling and greenhouse.
When you say someone is ‘cool as a cucumber’, it essentially means that the person is feeling rather relaxed. Well, actual tests performed on a cucumber in the field on a hot day revealed that the cucumber pulp temperature is 20 degrees cooler than the outside air. Wow, no wonder it is possible for a cucumber to stay so relaxed! Cucumbers are not only cooling and good for sore throats, but they are also high in vitamins. So start eating some today!
