Uses of tomato and Sunflower seed on skin

Tomatoes are among most the widely available fruit in the market, and it’s one of my favourites. But, have you ever wondered, does tomato have any other use rather than cooking? Many of you might not know but tomato seeds have many skin benefits, so does sunflower seed has, but sunflower seeds are not as widely available as the tomato seeds. So getting them would be quite tough! still, you can visit your nearest grocery store and check whether if it’s available there are not.

You should definitely give a try on sunflower seeds, I use it frequently on my skin and they work wonders. Sunflower seed is rich in linoleic acid, has very absorption properties and is rich in sunflower oil. I mostly use crushed dry sunflower seed has a natural moisturiser, the oil in the seed has very high anti-microbial property and applying them gives you a very shiny skin. Tomato seeds cannot be used like sunflower seeds but they do have lots of benefits on your skin.

Benefits of tomato seed on skin

Used as skin care product

I use tomato seeds has my natural skin care product. Tomato seeds have very nutritious content and they are high in lycopene content which is very good for your skin. You can use blended tomato seed and use them as face cream, lip balms and aftershaves. I apply the tomato seed blend twice or thrice a week, to make use of its anti-wrinkle property.

Natural sunscreen

Dried tomato seed oil is a wonderful natural sunscreen agent. I always prefer to use tomato sunscreen than those chemical ones if the day is not too hot and sun is not very bright.

Anti-Aging agent

Tomato seeds are rich in vitamin A, vitamin B, folate, thiamine, all these agents have high anti-wrinkling property. With confidence, I can say, tomato seeds are by far the best anti-aging natural skin product. I also use the paste to apply it under the eye, it keeps the eye refreshing and removes the bagginess under your eyes.

Like the tomato seeds, sunflower seeds also work well on your skin. Here are the few:

Natural Moisturiser

Sunflower seed oil is a wonderful moisturising agent. The oil can be extracted from dry sunflower seeds. I always use the oil on my skin, it also leaves a beautiful fresh fragrance on the skin. But careful while using it, you don’t want to apply too much oil on the skin and feel yourself completely uncomfortable and greasy. The oil has many antimicrobial properties too, You should definitely incorporate this as your daily skin care product.

Anti-wrinkling agent

Similar to tomato seeds, sunflower seeds can also be used as an anti-wrinkling paste. You can blend sunflower seeds, with some water and make into a paste. I usually blend this paste along with the tomato seed paste to make a perfect wrinkle-free cream. The paste may feel a bit gooey and smelly, but never mind, its way better than those chemical cosmetics that may have side effects in the long run.

Cancer preventing agent

Oil from Sunflower is great cancer preventing agents. The oil is rich in vitamin E, which are known to prevent cancer. Research in a major university in the USA, found that Sunflower seeds help in reducing collagen and elastin in the skin which helps in removing the fine lines and wrinkles, it also leaves a protective layer around the skin, protecting you from extra bodies. The research recommends incorporating the oil in your daily life.

Retains water content on your skin

When the day gets rough and I’m totally stressed out, my skin get dry and tough. It feels dirty and polluted. To charge my skin up, and bring it back I use sunflower seed, lemon and almond oil paste. sunflower seeds are blended together with a squeeze of lemon and a tablespoon of almond oil. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it there for 15minutes. It works like a magic, and brings back all the freshness and puffiness of the face.

Tomato seeds and sunflower seeds are well known for their nutritional property. These products are easily available and can be readily used. They work wonders on your skin and I personally recommend to use them daily. Well, come on! it’s not tough to blend few seeds together. Is it?

Everything About Almonds

Almonds are my favourite snack! | www.OrganicIsBeautiful.com

I love this one. “Want to boost your memory, eat a handful of Almonds everyday”. This is the
tip that has become a norm.

Botanically speaking, almond belongs to the family of the peach, plum and the cherry. This
species of the tree is a native to Middle East, North Africa and the Indian subcontinent. However, according to some sources the origin of almond is accredited to Central Asia and China. In the Mediterranean region specifically in some parts of Levant, the almonds are considered to be the first to be in the region. You can find their traces in history all the way to the Bible.

Skin Types and Almonds
It is one of the most amazing things about almond that it is good for every type of skin.

 Almonds can have a blooming effect on a normal skin.

 Oily skin attracts too much dirt and it can be addressed by applying an almond face
pack.

 For sensitive skin, almonds are the best choice because they do not contain any acidic
nutrient. Not only this but also almonds contain antioxidants due to which they can
thwart the unwelcomed microbes.

 Applying almond oil on an oily skin gives the best results.

Main Benefits of Almonds. Almonds are considered as the memory booster and this is not without reason. Here are some remarkable benefits of almonds.

 Enriched with Lots of Nutrients. Almonds can be termed as the nutrient factory as they contain fiber, protein, fat, vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, vitamin B2, carbs, and phytic acid all in one seed. All these nutrients are very important for the nourishment of human body.

 Prevent Ageing and Disease
Almonds are a great source of antioxidants which help protect against oxidative stress, which are a danger to molecules and can be a reason for ageing and diseases like cancer. Furthermore, they alleviate oxidative stress.

 Help Prevent Heart Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease
Almonds are filled with Vitamin E which, according to a study, when taken aplenty can help prevent heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

 Control Blood Sugar
Almonds are a perfect combination for diabetics as they contain lesser carbs, more healthy fats, fibers and protein. Furthermore, they contain a high amount of magnesium which is involved in blood sugar control according to a recent study.

Magnesium in this seed not only controls the blood sugar but also the blood pressure levels. According to a number of studies mitigating magnesium deficiency helps reduce the blood pressure.

6 Tips to Get Your Lips Back After Winter

Today on OiB, I will discuss how to get your lips back from winter. Summer is already here which is why you can get back your lips fairly easily. Your lips do not get the ample amount of sun light needed during winter when the sun is not shining at its best and there is no source of Vitamin in this way. I tell you these natural ways so you don’t have to waste money or risk any
effects.

 Castor Oil

Dry lips can be greatly revived using castor oil by putting it on your lips several times a day or by using it to make a mixture of one teaspoon oil with a teaspoon of glycerin and lemon juice (few drops). The well mixed mixture is applied overnight to be washed with warm water right in the morning. You shall see that your lips shall be healed within no time after a few repetitions.

 Honey

In addition to providing great moist lips, honey is the only cure that also heals the lips by providing it anti-bacterial properties. Pure organic honey is applied on lips for many times a day. A honey and glycerin paste also works well and very if it is applied overnight.
The treatment not only brings back your lips that have been lost during the winter and have prone to become dry and dull, but also softens the lips at the very same time. Hence this is the most efficient and probably the best treatment of all times.

 Sugar

Softness can also be achieved faster along by removing the dead cells that have formed your lip’s upper layer by using sugar. Only 2 teaspoons sugar mixed with a teaspoon of honey can make wonders in very few minutes.
The paste applied to the lips is rubbed well around the lips to take off the dead cells and wash them with warm water.

 Rose Petals
If you want perfectly good lips that are also red and rosy then just mix a few rose petals in water to soak them thoroughly in milk for a few hours and make them into a thick paste by mashing out the petals.

Application of this paste twice or thrice during the day and even at night greatly helps to achieve your goal. For those who are allergic to milk, they can use glycerin instead of milk fairly well.

 Cream
You can put on fresh milk cream on your lips for 10 minutes and wash it with a warm water dipped cotton ball. It is the milk cream’s high fat content that brings about the pure moisturization.

 Coconut Oil

If you’re tired of those chapped lips after winter, just dab on some coconut oil many times during the day on your lips to keep them moist throughout or even use olive oil for the same.
