5 Ways to Exfoliate Skin Naturally



exfoliate skin naturally

Many of us dread snakes, but like them, we periodically shed dead skin too, though not as extensively. Our dead skins do not always shed fully and clog our skin pores. Exfoliation, which is the process of removal of dead skin, is beneficial for both dry and oily skins. Below, we share five natural exfoliation scrubs.

1. Orange exfoliating scrub

The tangy and sweet citrus fruit is chock-full of vitamin C, an antioxidant which aids in the production of collagen, prevents ageing and promotes new skin production. For skin exfoliation, the orange peel should be sun-dried for a few days, then ground into a powder. A paste made of this powder, turmeric and honey is applied to the affected skin and washed off after about 10 minutes with water.

2. Besan and turmeric scrub

Besan or gram flour is often used to get rid of dead skin. Turmeric contains the chemical compound curcumin, which has antioxidant, anti-ageing and collagen-boosting properties. Turmeric is also helpful in treating wounds. A paste made with the two ingredients and rose water or lemon juice can be applied to the face and then rinsed off when it becomes dry.

3. Oat scrub

It is a coarse type of flour which is ideal for exfoliation and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Oats are also good for treating acne and other inflammatory skin diseases. Finely ground oats are mixed honey and water for scrubbing the face or with coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil for a body scrub.

4. Olive oil and sugar scrub

This scrub is usually prepared with a spoonful of olive oil, preferably the extra virgin variety, and some sugar. Like most plant-based oils, olive oil also has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. The uniform granules of sugar, on the other hand, help remove dead skin during a massage.

5. Masoor dal scrub

Organic Masoor has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The dal is soaked in water overnight to soften it. It is then ground to a paste, mixed with milk and applied to the face. The paste is washed off when it gets dry.

Veteran Filmmaker Rahul Rawail Gets Vaccinated Against Covid-19 in Mumbai



News18 Logo

Veteran Filmmaker Rahul Rawail was seen at the jumbo Covid facility in BKC, Mumbai, where the 69 year old received his first dose of vaccine against Covid- 19. While many of his peers from Bollywood are still contemplating whether they should take the vaccine shot or not, Rawail known for films like Arjun and Betaab walked straight into the vaccination center in BKC on 1st March to get vaccinated.

When we caught up with the veteran, this is what he had to say about his experience “This morning I got a call from David Dhawan saying ‘I heard you are taking the vaccine today, are you taking it today?’ I said yes. David said he will take it after two weeks, I told him what’s the point…..I didn’t even feel the pinch when I was administered the vaccine. I would prefer Covisheild over Covaxin. My doctor told me that I can go straight to the airport after the vaccine.”

Rawail who also plays an important part as a head of jury at for one of the categories at the prestigious International Indian Film Festival of India or IFFI also revealed how he had to cut his travel plans due to Covid restrictions and fear of catching the bug at his age, he said “ In this one year I traveled only for one day to goa for IFFI as there was pressure on me to come but my family didn’t want me to travel in this situation. I still went for the festival with mask, shield and gloves. Luckily nothing happened but now with this dose that fear has gone. I would ask my sons close friends parents who are elderly like me whom I will ask to come and take the vaccine. I will ask David Dhawan, my friend, to come and take a jab immediately . I will call up all the people whom I can and ask them to take this vaccine”

Now we hope Rawail inspires more seniors from-town to come and take the jab in days to come.
