Hi to everyone!

Umm if you guys r suffering from dry skin, try to use these stuff, use "johnson's baby lotion" after you take a bsth and "dove white soap" while taking a bath 2 times a day and ur skin will be glowing in 4 weeks! But be careful not to use any strong soaps like sulphur soaps because it will give you
more skin problems if you have dry skin and
DON'T use it especialy when you have
sensitive skin

For palm roughness you can use glycerine 2 drops and water 2 drops mixed together and rub it in your palm.Whenever you wash your hand you can apply vaseline to your palms.Also rub coconut oil in your palms.While washing you can add gloves to your hand if it is uncomfortable you can apply vaseline or moisturiser to our palm immediately..

You can add jhonson baby oil to the water while having bath.This is good for both babies as well as for adults.Also you have oatmeal bath too.

I tried all kinds of creams and medicines for my problem of Acne, but nothing worked. For more than a year, I had these terrible, painful boils all over the face. It was so embarr[@]ing! In just two months of Ayurvedic treatment with Arogyam Pure Herbs, all my boils disappeared and I am feeling much more confident now. Their diet advice also helped me improve my overall health to a great extent.Thanks to Dr Vipul Sharma
