Acne
Acne is a common skin problem that needs appropriate care. It usually occurs on an oily skin and is common during adolescence, due to hormonal changes. In acne there is bacterial activity and infection. Use medicated face wash or soap twice a day. Then apply skin tonic / astringent lotion with cotton wool. Blackheads should be extracted by a beauty therapist. As a home remedy, apply sandalwood paste on eruptions.

You can also mix Cinnamon powder and Methi seed powder with a little Lemon juice and add a few drops of  Honey into a sticky paste. Apply only on the acne daily and leave it on for one hour. Or, take a handful of Neem leaves and simmer on very low fire in 4 cups of water for one hour. Leave overnight. Next morning, make a paste of the leaves and apply on the face. Add the juice of a lemon to a glass of warm water and have it first thing in the morning.

Wrinkles
Today, the focus of beauty treatments is on how to delay visible signs of ageing, like lines and wrinkles. Generally speaking, by the age of fifty, the signs of age become visible, in terms of wrinkles, lines, loss of skin elasticity and so on. The skin that has been properly cared for stays youthful for a longer time. A regular skin-care routine, according to skin type and problems, helps to delay aging signs.

Begin by protecting the skin from the factors that cause dryness, like exposure to the sun, chemical air pollutants, make-up cosmetics and so on.  A suitable sunscreen, along with a moisturizer, should be used during the day, 20 minutes before going out. Nourishing the skin every night also helps it to retail moisture and delay the ageing signs.

Warts
These are small, hard, uneven and raised growths, with a rough surface. They can appear on the face and other parts of the body. Some warts are caused by a virus and spread easily. A wart should never be picked with the nails. It is best to refer it to a dermatologist, or go for homeopathic treatment.

As far as home remedies are concerned, it is said that applying vinegar on the warts daily causes them to finally fall out. Apply it only on the wart, using cotton wool. It is also said that onions help. Soak cut onions in water overnight. Next morning apply the water on the face.
