There are certain things which all men and women should take care
of to maintain their beauty forever.
Never sleep with make up on. Always clean your face with damp
cotton wool and cleansing milk before going to bed.
Don’t retouch an old lipstick, clean the lips and put on a
completely new coat. This will look fresher and keep it original
Don’t wear scarlet lipstick if you are very pale it will make you
look even paler. If you must wear this color, then add a little
more color to your sin with a shade darker foundation and add a
little more color to your cheeks.
Don’t wear a beige lipstick if you have mousey hair and a beige
skin-your lips will blend into your complexion and won’t be
Don’t’ wear pale lipstick if you have a problem skin, the
blemishes will show yup darker than your lips. Also, if pale
lipstick is worn over discolored teeth, the teeth will look
dirtier and yellowier.
Don’t eat too many chocolates. The cocoa flavoring stimulates oil
glands to become active and the high fat and sugar content
encourages spots. Try eating apples instead.
Don’t eat more than two oranges a day; their high acid content can
cause a red rash. The same applies to grape fruits and
strawberries. Eat them by all means but don’t overeat them.
Don’t fall for fizzy drinks in hot weather. They don’t quench
thirst as well as cold water, fruit juice or tea and they are
laden with sugar. Cola, like chocolate contains cocoa extract and
therefore stimulates oil glands to over activity.
Avoid taking more than two cups of coffee or tea during a day.
Instead, learn to take fruit juice, lassi, carrot or cucumber
Don’t be a grease spot. Your skin will absorb the nourishment it
needs within 20 minutes, so wipe off the excess cream and then
Don’t use the bar of soap which you use for your body on your
hair. The bar of soap which you use for your body on your hair.
The bar of soap is very damaging to the hair because it leaves an
insoluble alkaline film on the scalp even after the hair has been
thoroughly rinsed. This deposit can clog the hair and oil openings
in your scalp and its drying qualities may give rise to ugly
dandruff. In addition, the alkaline quality of soap removes the
natural acid mantle of the healthy scalp and invites bacterial
invasion of the areas, therefore, it is always wise either to wash
with home-made shikakai or to invest in a good shampoo.
Don’t ever use any of the “Medicated dandruff Shampoos” so widely
advertised. Medicated shampoos don’t clear the dandruff but make
it return with a vengeance. They give only temporary relief and
can do a staggering amount of scalp and hair damage.
Don’t use marketed hair oils on your hair. They contain white oil
which gives rise to premature grey heads. For the same reason,
don’t use hair dyes, they not only contain harmful chemicals which
cause harm to the scalp and to the skin, but if once discontinued
will give you a full head of grey hair.
