For a memory wire, twist the ends under with needle-nose jewelry pliers to secure; with elastic string, secure with a double knot touched with jewelry glue and obscure the knotted section inside one of the larger beads.

Every lady wants a flawless and glowing complexion. Watermelon is healthy snack choice as well as a beauty choice. Who knew?

  Application of Watermelon face Packs

The best way to utilize the watermelon is to use it as a face pack, especially after a hot summer days’ outing.

  Watermelon Face Pack 1:

Try this invigorating watermelon face pack to give your face the cool, clean and youthful look. Take one cup of watermelon pulp and apply on face and neck. Rinse face and neck after 15 minutes. Your skin becomes soft and supple.

  Watermelon Face Pack 2 – ‘For sunburns and suntans’

Prepare a watermelon and cucumber face pack by mixing equal proportions of watermelon and cucumber pulp and leave it on your face for twenty minutes.
This face pack heals the sunburns and lightens your complexion.
Dust and pollution closes the pores of your skin and makes it look dull and dark. Just rub watermelon and mint leaves frozen into ice cubes all over the face to open the pores. Your face will be fresh and clean in no time.

  Grated Watermelon Scrub

Squeeze out the juice from grated watermelon and mix with a pinch of gram flour. Apply the paste on the face and leave it for fifteen minutes. The pulp is an excellent scrub and leaves your skin glowing.

Yes, watermelon is the perfect solution to your beauty aspirations.

Enjoy The Sun This Spring!

A nice stroll on a beautiful spring day may sound like an obvious, simple activity but, it can do wonders for your mood! Karen Salmansohn says that “Sunny weather literally creates a sunnier mood.”  Sun helps folks to thrive.  It was even found that patients in beds closer to windows have a shorter stay in the hospital compared to those with beds away from a window. Why not enjoy the warm, crispy rays?

What about sidewalk chalk? Who says that you have to be a child to enjoy some sidewalk fun? I always found that coloring with crayons was therapeutic so why not transfer color time to the outdoors!

Explore springtime. Explore sunshine and flowers. Sun brings smiles to faces everywhere!
