Whiteheads
They should not be pinched with the nails in an effort to remove them. This can lead to infection and will leave marks on the skin. A proper cleansing routine is important, according to the skin type. The use of facial scrubs helps to discourage white heads. If the skin is very dry use the scrub, only once a week and on the areas with white heads.

For oily skin, scrubs can be used more often. But, scrubs should not be applied on pimples, acne or rash. Some home remedies are said to help the problem of whiteheads. Make a paste of fenugreek (methi) leaves and apply on the face daily, washing it off after an hour.

Split ends
Cutting off the split ends is the only remedy. Then give your hair proper and regular care. Avoid tying the hair tight with rubber bands. Avoid using hair dryers and brushes. Use a wide-toothed comb. Twice a week heat coconut oil and apply on the hair. Apply on ends too.

Then dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the hot towel around the head, like a turban. Keep it on for 5 minutes. Repeat the hot towel wrap 3 or 4 times. This helps the hair and scalp absorb the oil better. Use a mild herbal shampoo. Use less shampoo and rinse well with water.

After shampoo, apply a creamy conditioner, taking less quantity and massaging it lightly into the hair. Leave on for 2 minutes and rinse off with plain water. Or, you can apply a “leave-on” type of conditioner or hair serum. Apply the same way, but do not rinse off. Have a small bowl of sprouts daily and ask your doctor to prescribe vitamin and mineral supplements.

Wrinkles
A regular skin-care routine, adopted in good time, helps to delay ageing signs and avoid problems. Moreover, when problems begin to occur, the skin-care routine and products should be adjusted, according to one’s needs. For instance, in cases of deep dehydration, the use of soap can be discontinued, so that further dryness and sensitivity are prevented and the sensitive skin can be nourished and nursed back to good health.

Your daily routine should lay more emphasis on moisturising the skin and prevention of moisture loss. Begin to protect the skin from the factors that cause dryness, like exposure to the sun, to artificial heating and air conditioning, chemical air pollutants, makeup cosmetics and so on.

A suitable sunscreen, along with a moisturiser, should be used during the day, especially when you go out. Include products that have built-in moisturisers. At night, massage with a nourishing cream and remove with moist cotton wool before bedtime. Have weekly salon facials with massage, exfoliation, mask and toning.
