 Shoulder and Arm Tips

With halter neck and sleeveless dresses and blouses in fashion, women must pay more attention to their shoulders and arms. These should always be gleaming and in good shape. For an all- round well-groomed look, you have to keep your shoulders and arms in as good a shape as your face.

Home Made Cream

Here is a method to prepare a home made cream to achieve that gleaming look.

Be whites of two eggs in a cup of rose water for a few seconds, add 1/4 teaspoon of alum powder and beat them together till fluffy. Now cover your shoulders and arms with it and leave for at least one hour.

You can massage your shoulders and arms with any of the good facial creams.

Arms, if covered with too much hair, need extra attention. You can apply cold wax to get rid of hair. This treatment will leave your arms smooth and shining. Regular waxing will eventually weaken the hair growth.

In case you have very few and fine hair on your arms, it will be easier to bleach them. Make a mixture of 3 parts of hydrogen peroxide and 1 part of ammonia. Apply over your arms with cotton wool and leave to dry. After about ten minutes, wash your arms with cold water. Now your hair will be golden and less noticeable.

Either waxing or bleaching will have to be repeated every fortnight or so.
