For soft hands
Take one spoon of oats and add a little water or milk into it. Mix it well. Apply this on your hands or even face and then wash it off in five minutes. You will instantly feel the difference. You can also add barley if you don’t have oats.
For open pores
Take a tomato and cut it into half. Apply it straight on the areas where you have open pores. Let it dry and then wash it off after few minutes with warm water.
Take 5 tablespoon of Fuller’s earth or multani mitti and add 2 tablespoon of neem paste and 1 tablespoon of camphor to it. Scoop out one tbs and add water to it. Wash your face with this or leave it as a mask. This will help reduce acne and pimple.

Massage your hair with pure coconut oil and then follow it up with a juice of one full lemon. Follow it up with turban therapy. Do it twice a week and will notice a difference.
For hair fall
Take 2 tablespoon of Shikakai, 2 tablespoon of Amla powder and 2 tablespoon of Ritha. Mix them all together and apply it on your hair for 45 minutes. Shampoo it off and then follow it up with a conditioner.
