Coolness of Cucumber

Cucumber is my favorite salad veggie. It is equally important when it comes to soothing my puffy eyes loaded with dark circles. Along with repairing your skin gently, cucumber also softens it. Remove the peel, cut it into thin slices, and keep it on your eyes to remove the fatigue and ease the dark circles. They also soothe the ungainly crow’s feet and fine lines that can make one look older. Mix 2 tbsp cucumber juice with 1 tbsp honey to give your skin the nourishment it requires. You can store this, and use it as a refreshing face wash. You can also use cucumber juice alone on your face to brighten it up. One of the coolest home remedies for sensitive skin on face.

Keep A Check On Your Allergies

Allergy and sensitive skin are arch rivals. Scorching sun, pollutants, smoke, dust, pollen, tar, petrol, cosmetics, food items – the list goes on. Sun is the biggest enemy of skin; tan and sun burns are quite common people with sensitive skin. Dust also leaves me with rashes, as do certain face washes and face masks. Make a note of what affects your skin and stay away from them instead of searching for a solution every time you encounter the problem.

Honey- the Real HERO

Honey is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties. A super hydrating tonic, you can use it as a regular cleansing agent when mixed with one glass of water. Make a coarse mixture of unsweetened cocoa powder and honey. Add coconut oil and milk to make a wonderful scrub for sensitive skin. This mixture can also be used as a face mask. Apply on the face and wash off with lukewarm water after 20 minutes. Honey also heals your sunburns. Just dab on the affected area and wash off after a while.
