Resurface your skin naturally for a smooth complexion.

Flag this photo

If your skin has been affected by the sun, age or acne, you may want to try a technique called resurfacing to make your skin look smoother. Most resurfacing techniques are done medically using chemicals, but you can resurface your skin naturally by regularly exfoliating. By combining a weekly mask with daily exfoliation and a natural moisturizer, you can attain a smooth and balanced complexion. But it's always wise to speak with your dermatologist before using home remedies for your skin.

Mix 1 teaspoon of both turmeric powder and sandalwood powder with a small amount of water until it forms a paste. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and can help calm troubled or sensitive areas of your skin. Sandalwood helps reduce tension and anxiety, helping to improve wrinkles in the skin.


Apply the paste to your face and allow it to dry for 45 minutes.


Remove the paste from your face with warm water and a wash cloth.


Apply this mask weekly for best results.

Daily Exfoliation1

Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. The sugar gives the homemade exfoliant the ability to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, making it appear more even and smooth. Sugar is also gentler than salt, which makes it safe to use on your face. The olive oil helps keep the sugar together making it easier to spread onto your skin. Olive oil also helps condition skin in the process of exfoliation.


Rub the sugar and olive oil mixture gently onto your face, neck and other areas of concern.


Rinse your skin with warm water and pat dry with a towel.


Exfoliate your skin daily with this recipe.


Apply natural oils to your skin for moisture daily after your mask or exfoliation. For oily skin, use sunflower oil, for dry skin use sesame oil, and for normal skin use corn oil. Apply a very small amount evenly to your skin.

Tips & Warnings

Turmeric may stain clothing, so be careful when preparing your weekly mask.

If My House Has the Old Flat Ceiling With Square Designs in It, What Can I Do to Give It a Face Lift?

A paneled ceiling will instantly transform an old flat ceiling.

Flag this photo

Giving your ceiling a face lift will give your entire room a new feeling and look, especially if you’re updating old flat ceilings with square designs. While this design has long been out of fashion, there are a myriad of options to give your ceiling a look that is more in keeping with your décor and sense of style. Sometimes called the fifth wall by interior designers, the ceiling deserves more than a flat, uninteresting surface. Transform it with an option that is inexpensive but makes it the focal point it can be.

Update the look of your ceiling with pressed tin panels. These metal sheets are ideal for older homes or loft apartments because of their design. However, if noise is an issue in the room, then pressed tin may not be the best choice because of this material's acoustic qualities. If you decide that pressed tin panels are the way to go, be sure to enlist the help of an assistant to install the sheets, which can weigh up to 4 pounds each.

Paneled Ceiling

Create a rustic look with a paneled ceiling. To keep costs low and mimic the look of wood, use plywood panels or tongue-and-groove boards. These wood products bear a striking resemblance to old-fashioned bead board. If the room is small, opt for narrow boards that measure approximately 1.6 inches to make the space look larger. Wider boards, measuring up to 3.5 inches, are ideal for larger rooms. Stain or prime the edges and faces of the boards, before installing them, to prevent moisture from passing through the front face once the boards are in place.


If expense and time are an issue, the easiest way to transform a ceiling and its square designs is to paint over them. It’s a great opportunity to infuse a bit of color to an area that typically, by default, is left white. Look at a color wheel and choose a color that complements your walls to make your ceiling the star of the room, rather than the dud.


Next to paint, fabric is one of the least expensive and time-consuming ways to transform a ceiling. Other than getting the material cut to size, fabric requires no prep work for the ceiling in terms of patching holes or priming for paint. Even though there are countless fabric options, keep the overall décor of your room in mind when making a selection.

How to Keep Facial Lines From Getting Worse

Start good skincare practices early to prevent premature aging.

Flag this photo

Aging is a natural body process. While we strive for a long, healthy life, it doesn't mean the results of aging are greeted with enthusiasm. Facial lines appear as the skin experiences a loss of elasticity and collagen. Without surgery or cosmetic treatment, it's not possible to get rid of facial lines altogether. But you can keep facial lines from getting worse with a combination of lifestyle practices, healthy habits and skincare techniques that prevent accelerated aging.

How to Apply the Slapbrush Technique to a Ceiling With Crows Feet

Add slap brush or crow's foot texture to a ceiling.

Flag this photo

Adding texture to a ceiling can create a rich and elegant effect that helps to add distinctive style. One common texture often applied to ceilings is the slap brush or crow's foot texture. Apply the slap brush technique to a ceiling with a special tool that helps to create a texture that resembles crow’s feet on the ceiling. When you finish, apply a topcoat of colored paint to finish the ceiling design.

Related Searches:Difficulty:ModerateInstructions Things You'll NeedDrop clothsPlastic tarpsPainter’s tapeDrywall compound5-gallon bucketStir stickRoller attachment (1/4-inch thick)Paint roller (with extension handle)Crow’s foot or slap brush (with extension handle)Suggest Edits1

Place drop cloths over the floor to eliminate messes from the drywall compound. Tape plastic tarps to the walls with painter’s tape to protect the wall surfaces. Move furniture out of the room before texturizing the ceiling.


Mix 1 gallon of drywall compound with 1/2 cup of water in the 5-gallon bucket to make the mud for the ceiling. Stir the ingredients with the stir stick to make the compound resemble a smooth milkshake.


Fit the roller attachment onto the paint roller. Load the paint roller with a thick layer of the prepared mud.


Apply a 1/8-inch-thick layer of mud to the ceiling in a 3-foot square area starting in a corner. Set the roller aside after you coat the small area with mud.


Touch the bristles of the crow’s foot or slap brush onto the wet mud on the ceiling to create a texture. Slap, twist or stamp the bristles into the mud to create the texture you desire in the wet mud. Set the tool aside after you finish texturizing the wet mud.


Apply more mud to the ceiling in another 3-foot square area using the same application technique. Set the roller aside after you finish applying the mud. Texturize the mud with the tool again, creating the same effect in the mud. Continue applying mud in small areas and texturizing it immediately until you finish the entire ceiling.

Tips & Warnings

Allow the texturized mud to dry completely on the ceiling and then apply a topcoat of paint to finish the ceiling design.
