Grapefruit – Zaps Cholesterol, Unclogs Arteries

June 10th, 2012

Grapefruit

The grapefruit Citrus fruit (Citrus × paradisi), is a subtropical citrus tree known for its bitter fruit, an 18th-century hybrid first bred in Barbados. The flesh is segmented and acidic, varying in color depending on the cultivars, which include white, pink and red pulps of varying sweetness.

In this world, people use the fruit, oil from the peel, and extracts from the seed as medicine. Grapefruit seed extract is processed from grapefruit seeds and pulp obtained as a byproduct from grapefruit juice production. Vegetable glycerin is added to the final product to reduce acidity and bitterness.

Grapefruit Juice
Grapefruit juice is used for high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), cancer, a skin disease called psoriasis, and for weight loss and obesity.

Grapefruit Seed Extract
Grapefruit seed extract is taken by mouth for bacterial, viral, and fungal infections including yeast infections. Grapefruit seed extract is applied to the skin as a facial cleanser, first-aid treatment, remedy for mild skin irritations, and as a vaginal douche for vaginal yeast infections (candidiasis). It is also used as an ear or nasal rinse for preventing and treating infections; as a gargle for sore throats; and a dental rinse for preventing gingivitis and promoting healthy gums; and as a breath freshener.

Grapefruit Oil
Grapefruit oil is applied to the skin to the skin for muscle fatigue, hair growth, toning the skin, and for acne and oily skin. It is also used for the common cold and flu (influenza).

Inhale Grapefruit Vapors
Some people inhale grapefruit vapors to help the body retain water, for headache, stress, and depression. Grapeseed extract vapor has also been inhaled for the treatment of lung infections.

Grapefruit in Food
Grapefruit is safe in the amounts normally used as food and seems to be safe when used appropriately for medicinal purposes.

A Healthy Facial Care

May 30th, 2012

A Healthy Facial CareAll skin benefits from the regular application of a face mask, which cleanses and stimulates. They improve the circulation, which in turn encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to the skin, thereby enhancing its tone, texture and colour.

However, face masks can benefit the skin in other ways too. Some are healing, with deep drawing action to remove impurities from problem skins, while others rejuvenate tired and mature skins. There are masks you can make to moisturize, bleach and tone your skin as and when it seems to need them.

The finest masks are made from fruit, vegetables and herbs which contain a relatively high proportion of natural vitamins, minerals, acids, antiseptics and oils. The most commonly used fruits are those that can be applied directly to the face such as:

  • Apples
  • Peaches
  • Apricots
  • Plums
  • Strawberries
  • Grapes
  • Bananas
  • Pineapple
  • Avocado
  • Tomato
  • Pawpaw
  • Mango
  • And ofcourse the invaluable juices of oranges and lemons.

Raw grated vegetables such as:

  • Carrots
  • Cucumber

And cooked root vegetables are often used for beauty treatments, but is more often extracted or infused vegetable juices that are used.

Warm mashed poultices of herbs combined with a thickening agent, or herbal infusions added to basic dry ingredients make remedial and soothing masks.

The thickening agents used to bind masks vary from cooked rice and chickpeas, to oatmeal, fuller’s earth and kaolin. Honey, cream, eggs, yoghurt and vinegar are also to nourish, tighten or bleach your skin.

Follow your instincts
Experiment with the various ingredients to find the perfect mask.

  • On a day when your skin looks grey and greasy, a mask of strawberries and cream will improve it no end
  • When your skin looks as dull and tired as you feel, a warm and soothing mask of Chamomile will gently revive it, as will a saturated gauze compress of mint tea or pineapple juice on a hot, sticky and summer’s day.

When inventing your own recipes, remember that a mask should be just thin enough to smooth on the face without dragging the skin, yet thick enough to stay in place. Very liquid masks can be applied with a soft 12mm (1/2in) paintbrush. Most masks require 15-20 minutes drying time, unless otherwise stated in the recipe, and should be rinsed off with tepid water.

The Perfect Facial

A facial once a week, incorporating the use of a face mask, is the most effective way of ensuring a thoroughly cleansed and healthy skin. Using natural ingredients in the mask enables you to make the right choice for the condition of your skin at any particular time, depending on whether it needs to be nourished, deeply cleansed, moisturized, deeply cleansed, moisturized or revitalized.

  • Tie your hair back from your face.
  • Thoroughly remove make-up with a cleanser.
  • Prepare a herbal steam bath. This is an optional step, but is particularly beneficial when a really deep cleansing is required. Blot the skin dry after steaming.
  • Apply the face mask. This must be done gently using the fingertips and taking great care not to drag the skin. Avoid sensitive areas around the eyes and mouth.
  • Cover the eyes with gauze pads soaked in a mild skin tonic or suitable herbal infusion to soothe and cool.
  • Lie down for the prescribed time according to which mask you have used, relax and refuse to be disturbed. Do not move the muscles of the face because this will cause the mask to crack and reduce its effectiveness.
  • Remove the mask with plenty of tepid water and cotton wool or a soft, clean face cloth.
  • Refresh with purified water or a toner to close the pores.
  • Apply a thin film of moisturizer and try to leave the face bare or make up for eight hours.
