If you have dry skin, brittle nails, damaged hair, or one of a dozen other conditions, then you need special beauty care methods to cope with them. These tips on beauty care remedies for common beauty problems can improve your skin, hair, and nails, helping your natural beauty to shine through.

Problem Hair Care

Damaged, dry hair is one of the most common beauty problems out there. The things that women often do to their hair in the name of beautiful are often the very things that damage and destroy their hair’s beauty. Coloring, ironing, bleaching, and curling all damage the hair, but most women will not give them up.

To deal with damaged hair, you have to be very careful with your choice of conditioner. Find one with quinoa protein or keratin. They will repair damaged and split strands of hair, and make your whole head of hair stronger. Be sure to apply your conditioner the right way. The ends of your hairs have taken the most damage, and are the most vulnerable to further damage. The hair close to your scalp, however, is newly grown and strong. Using conditioner there is unnecessary, and it just weighs your hair down, making it greasy and flat. Scrubbing your hair there more than you need to just starts the damage early. Instead, apply the conditioner at about ear level and work it down from there.

Blow-dryers cause more hair damage than almost anything else. Try to blow dry your hair no more than is absolutely necessary. When you do use it, keep the dryer always in motion, so that the heat doesn’t build up too much, damaging your hair. Never hold the dryer closer than six inches.

Nourish your hair by working coconut oil into your hair twice every week. This will make it stronger and healthier.

Problem Skin Care

If you suffer from acne and oily skin, then you should wash your face two to three times per day with lukewarm, not hot, water. Use an oil-based cleanser on your face in the morning to pull the oil out of your pores. Use an oil-free moisturizer. Never use harsh soap. Only use water-based makeup.

On the other hand, if you have dry skin, then you must use a mild cleanser each morning. After the cleanser, massage moisturizer into your face. The massage is as important as the moisturizer. It will stimulate your circulation and improve the texture of your skin. Never take hot showers, because they will dry out your skin even more. Avoid harsh cleansing products. Use a nourishing cream each night before you go to bed.

If you have patches of oily skin and patches of dry skin, you need something that will help both problems without aggravating either one. Clean your face once in the morning and once in the evening to get rid of the oil, but not more often, or your dry patches will get worse. Use the mildest cleansers. Use oil-free moisturizers on your dry patches. You should also be careful to use only oil-free sunscreen.

Problem Nail Care

In general, if your nails are constantly splitting and chipping, then the culprit is your diet. Proper nail care requires a balanced, healthy diet. Eat plenty of protein and foods with vitamins B, D, and E. Eating a small handful of almonds every day will do wonders for your nails.

If you have problem nails, wear gloves when you wash the dishes to protect them from the cleaning chemicals. Try not to use nail polish unless you absolutely have to, as it softens your nails. Never use nail files to remove stubborn nail polish or other stains. This will damage your nails even worse than nail polish remover. Instead, try soaking your nails in a bowl of lemon juice and water. Soak your nails in olive oil every day for 15 minutes if you have brittle nails. This will make them strong and healthy looking.

Even if you suffer from problems with your hair, skin, and nails, you can still look beautiful without very much effort. Just following a few simple, short daily routines will let you manage just about any problem.

Home Beauty Recipe: Stimulating Peppermint Foot Treatment

This stimulating peppermint foot treatment is a brilliant way to improve the condition of your feet without costing lots of money.


Big bowl
Peppermint oil
Foot file/pumice stone
Moisturizing cream

1. Pour some warm water into a big bowl, make certain that the water level is underneath your ankles. Add two teaspoons of peppermint oil to the warm water.

2. For the next 10 minutes soak your feet to soften and invigorate your skin. The foot soak will soften your feet and make the next stage, exfoliation, easier and more successful.

3. Completely dry off your feet, then use a pumice stone to even out any coarse areas on your heels. Use firm pressure to move the stone up and down the bottom of your foot. Keep doing this until the skin feels soft to the touch. Now do the same again on the opposite foot.

4. Follow up the exfoliation process with a hydrating and stimulating foot massage. You can use specifically designed foot massage products, but any thick moisturizer will work too. Place a thick layer of the cream over the top and bottom of your feet, and between your toes. Apply softly, and don’t rub in the cream. Leave this on for 20 minutes, then carefully remove the cream by cleaning your feet with a wet cloth or washing off the residue in the bathtub/sink.

Now sit back and relish your beautiful feet!
