Pimples in weird places, darkened underarms and cracked heels—each one of us has faced one or other undignified skin problem that makes us squirm. But more often than not, a simple home remedy can help solve the problem and put those embarrassing woes to rest.
Sometimes, repeated shaving is known to be a primary cause for darkened underarms. As painful as this may seem, going back to waxing or laser treatments to get rid of underarm hair may help. If your darkened underarms are a result of the accumulation of dead cells, using a whitening scrub for sensitive skin should help with showing you lighter results. For a quick home remedy, you can rub your underarm skin with thinly sliced potatoes. Potato works as a natural bleaching agent and can help get rid of those unwanted dark patches.
Summer is here and it’s time to whip out those flip-flops. For those of you who happened to develop cracked heels due to dry skin or prolonged hours on your feet, regular foot care can help reverse the problem. Paraffin wax pedicures have shown remarkable results in dealing with cracked heels. Alternatively, a home remedy that is known to help cure this problem is a mixture of Vaseline petroleum jelly and lemon juice. Rub this mixture over your heels nicely, till it gets absorbed in the skin and keep it overnight. Repeating this for a few days in a row can help soften your heels and erase those cracked patches.
Are you afraid to wear a bikini because of acne on your butt? As strange as this may seem, butt acne is actually fairly common. A simple way to deal with this is to use a body wash that has salicylic acid as an ingredient. It has unclogging benefits that can help prevent bumps from appearing. For the existing spots, use an exfoliating scrub and gently slough off the dead skin cells with the help of a loofah. In about ten days time, your skin should be baby soft and ready to flaunt!
Careful attention and care, drizzled with occasional pampering is all you need to keep these mortifying skin problems at bay. The earlier you tend to them, the easier it will be to reverse the damage. Good luck!
