Best Natural Remedies for Acne Scars and Blemishes!

Well nobody likes scars and blemishes and that too on face! Thankfully though, there are many things you can do at home to help get rid of them. Today I will share some easy natural treatments to help reduce theses scars and blemishes. Most importantly, keep your skin clean and eat a healthy diet because it is rightly said “you are what you eat”.

There are various natural ingredients that can be applied to get the desired results.

  • Oatmeal Face Pack:

  • Oatmeal (powdered) – 2tbs
  • Honey (raw/organic) – 2tbs
  • Lemon juice – 1tbs

 

  • Besan Face Pack:

  • Chickpeas/Besan flour – 2tbs
  • Turmeric – 1/4tbs
  • Yogurt – 2tbs

 

Note : Use regular plain, unflavored and unsweetened yogurt with live cultures.

  • Garlic Face Masks:

  • Garlic Juice – 1tbs
  • Onion Juice – 1tbs
  • Garlic Pulp/Juice – 1tbs
  • Aloe Vera Gel (preferably fresh)  – 2tbs

Note : Add few drops of plain or rose water to dilute the garlic pulp or juice to prevent the burning or stinging sensation on the applied skin if any.

  • Lemon Masks:

  • Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed) – 2tbs
  • Green Papaya Pulp – 2tbs
  • Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed) – 2tbs
  • Turmeric (dried powder) – a pinch
  • Cucumber Juice – 2tbs
  • Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed) – 2tbs
  • Cucumber Pulp/Juice – 1tbs
  • Aloe Vera pulp – 1tbs
  • Honey (raw/organic) – 1tbs

Note: You can also use fresh Aloe Vera Gel or Ripe Papaya Pulp directly on face without adding anything to them or put them together to a paste. Whatever is convenient!

  • Potato Masks:

  • Potato Juice – 2 tbs
  • Honey (raw/organic) – 1tbs
  • Potato Pulp/Juice – 2tbs
  • Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed) – 1tbs
  • Turmeric – 1/4tbs pulp or powdered
  • Tomato Face Masks:

  • Tomato Juice – 3tbs
  • Honey (raw/organic) – 1tbs
  • Tomato Juice – 2tbs
  • Buttermilk – 1tbs
  • Onion Face Mask:

  • Onion Juice – 2tbs
  • Honey (raw/organic) – 1tbs

 

 

Combine the ingredients to make a smooth paste. You can always adjust the consistency.  Apply the pack on your face and leave until it dries completely or just about to dry. You can re-apply the masks a couple of times. Before washing the pack, massage the face in circular motion using fingertips. Rinse with normal water and moisturize your face.

These face packs/masks will help you to clear acne, acne scars, blemishes,  skin discoloration, hyper-pigmentation and brighten skin complexion as well. Absolutely natural and healthy for the skin saving the pain of nasty peels, skin bleaching or any harsh chemical process.

Additionally I would recommend to go light on using cosmetic products on face during acne breakout.  Choose your products with care and use paraben-free skincare and do not use products with synthetic dyes.

Try on these simple home remedies and enjoy its benefits. However, if you still don’t get enough time to try these remedies don’t worry. Our body is capable of taking care of scars and eventually they’ll fade. However, if you expose them too much in the sun, their healing process will slow down and the scars could darken or become permanent. So moderate sun exposure for the time being and always use sunscreen for better protection.

Take care you guys.

Donum Naturals – Baby Therapeutic Cream (for eczema) and Radiant Creams for moms – Review

I’m really fond of brands which have something for me as well as my little on, especially if the products they offer have natural ingredients. Recently, I came across Donum Healthcare’s Sunshield cream with SPF 15 which is also a Radiant Day Cream which hydrates the skin.

Since me and my daughter have extremely dry skin and with the winters approaching, I chose their amazing Therapeutic Moisturizing Cream for babies.

Introducing DONUM NATURALS

Donum has a comprehensive range of wellness and skin care products that will nourish and bring out the natural beauty of your skin without any harm. It uses nature as the secret ingredient in all its products and includes ingredients like Neem, Basil leaf, Aloe-vera, Oatmeal and Argan oil.

Therapeutic Moisturizing Cream for babies

Donum Claims:

It is a healing and protective therapeutic cream, a shield Healing Moisturising Cream that is enriched with goat’s milk and chamomile which acts as a gentle chemical free cure for children suffering from eczema. It has highly effective natural active ingredients like goat milk which cures flaky skin, itchiness and redness. The presence of vitamins and goodness of chamomile calms and soothes the child’s gentle skin.

Price:

INR 375

Quantity:

60 gms

Ingredients:

Online availability: Website , Amazon.in

My Review:

The cream is soft, thick and buttery. It rubs into the skin making it soft and hydrated for hours. My daughter has extremely dry skin. Since this cream claims to treat the symptoms of eczema, including dry skin, I wanted to give it a try for the winters. The cream is extremely moisturizing and gets absorbed well into the skin, without making it sweat.

It keeps my daughter’s dry skin hydrated for hours, though it would vary for kids with eczema, who might need timely applications.

What works:

  • Highly moisturizing
  • Very effective for a long time

What doesn’t:

  • None

Radiant Cream with SPF 15

Ingredients:

Online availability: Website , Amazon.in

My Review:

It is a nice day cream which lightly moisturizes the skin and get absorbed quickly providing hydration throughout the day. The radiant cream has a sweet fragrance that lingers for some time and keeps the skin feeling fresh. However, in hot and humid weather, it might make the skin sweat a bit, but that could be because of the SPF content.

The packaging is in a box, which makes it easy to use and is travel-friendly.

What works:

  • It has natural ingredients like Oatmeal, Grapefruit extracts, Vitamin F
  • Light texture
  • Keeps skin hydrated for the whole day
  • SPF 15

What doesn’t:

  • It can make skin a little sweaty in hot weather

CleanCoconut Review – Scrub Mania!

This post is dedicated to help you find the right scrub to exfoliate your skin to reveal that radiant glowing skin. And I truly believe pampering oneself is always a good measure to take in day-to-day routine. Moreover, it shouldn’t be worrisome activity. So here I am!

Generally scrubs are made with beads or abrasive shell particles and chemicals. That leaves you with two options – either do some DIY or buy. This time I went ahead and indulged myself with scrubs that were made with all natural ingredients with no artificial flavors and preservatives.

I have noticed how regular use of face and body scrub transforms the skin. Its regular use stimulates circulation and gives a fresh look. It aids in better moisturizing and absorption of other skin products. It also helps drain lymph nodes and detoxify your body. With so many options available in market, it sure is not easy to pick one. I’m going au naturel these days. So my sole purpose is to use products that are good for me and the environment. No compromise with quality. And a good scrub can transform you dramatically. So what are we waiting for! Let’s go forward.

Today I will review CleanCoconut – Scrub. CleanCoconut claims to bring to us Natural Ingredients and No Secrets!

Our vision is to create natural, organic skin-loving products with safe ingredients for all skin types.

Please be careful when opening. Contents settle causing oil to rise. Stir well.

My Review:

This scrub is highly moisturizing as it contains essential oils, serums and coconut oil. Refreshing Grapefruit Scrub not only removes all impurities but it also leaves a coat of oils that deeply hydrates you. It’s easy to apply and leaves enough moisture to massage with. I don’t need to moisturize myself whenever I use it in shower, even though I have such a dry skin. I normally use concoction of oils mixed with body lotion after shower. But this product doesn’t strip me off my natural oils. It simply exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time. This product certainly works for me because I haven’t had a breakout in two months which is a great thing to happen. Additionally it helped in the blood circulation on my face and body.

Products with Hyaluronic Acid is my new favorites these days. It is a substance that is naturally present in human body. It has various uses and its use in cosmetics is one of them. It is pretty much promoted as “Fountain of Youth”. Whenever I have to go outside in a jiffy I simply exfoliate my face which takes 2 minutes, slather some sunscreen and gloss and whoa! Look who’s all pretty. 😉

I would recommend this product for all skin types.

What Works:

  • Rich in Antioxidants

  • Improves Signs of Aging
  • Great for Sensitive Skin

  • Fillers, Nanoparticles, Petrochemicals, PEG, Synthetic Fragrances, Dyes, Parabens and Phenoxyethanol free

What Doesn’t:

  • Abstinence from the local market. Expected to be floating on Amazon within 6 months.
  • Need to be extremely careful while using in the shower to avoid slipping on the layer of oil over the bathtub and enclosed shower tray.

It is an indulgent and luxurious body scrub that is formulated with natural ingredients. This scrub is organic and will not harm the aquatic life and is made with “good for you” ingredients. It’s great to know that you’re putting something on your body that isn’t harmful at times like this!

You’ll find this scrub to be exquisite blend of organic jojoba oil, organic virgin Moroccan argan oil, organic rose hip oil, coconut oil and sweet orange essential oil.

I have noticed how instantly this scrub gives my skin the renewed vitality and silky glow.

This body scrub is not too abrasive as it only has brown sugar as the exfoliator. Plus the oil content in the scrub helps the sugar particles to glide on skin and works pretty gentle on the skin. So it can be used regularly though I keep a day’s gap. It has an orangy spa-like fragrance that will leave you feeling calm, rejuvenated and refreshed.

TIPS & TRICKS

First time use
Unscrew black top from jar and replace with included flip-top lid. The flip-top makes it much easier to use in the shower!

Every day use

Step 1 : Stir/Mix Sugar

Step 2 : Wet Skin

Step 3 : Take A Small Amount

Step 4 : Gently apply the sugar to skin in circular motion

Step 5 : Rub sugar until dissolved

Step 6 : Rinse and Pat – towel dry.

For Extra Moisture: Use CleanCoconut Face & Body Mist 
Enjoy your radiant glowing skin!

BEST RESULTS: Allow sugar to sit on skin until mostly dissolved (about 1 min) allows the skin to soak in the moisturizing qualities of the sugar and oil.

STORAGE TIP: Keep away from direct heat or sunlight.

DISCARD: 6-9 months after opening. If used regularly (2-3 times per week) this product will be completely used in 4-8 weeks, depending on frequency of use.

Packaging:

The Scrub comes in a sturdy dark amber brown-color plastic box. There’s a free flip-top included. You can replace it with the original black lid to see your contents. Theses boxes are pretty lightweight and compact – perfect for travelling. They are recyclable and can easily be used to store a variety of items from cosmetics to art supplies to food and hardware. Great for personal use and possibilities are endless! Additionally you will find information cards of the product to educate about other similar products and the benefits.

Crowning Thoughts!

Make sure to opt for scrub that is gentle on your skin yet effective. Look for ingredients that nourish your skin and give it a boost, while getting rid of flaky dead skin. Avoid products with parabens, sulfates, and other harmful chemicals. When choosing, look for exfoliating particles that are natural and not plastic beads or abrasive materials. Now these are not only harmful to you but to the environment as well. They make their way to the water bodies eventually and pollute.

These are one of the best scrubs I have come across. Make an informative choice for your skin and environment guys and have a healthy-glowing skin! Highly recommend these scrubs and the seller.

P.S. Don’t apply too much pressure on your face and body while using scrub as they give enough abrasive action.

Bouquet of benefits with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

There has been much talk about the miraculous benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (cool ones prefer ACV), but the trick they say is in doing it right. While its benefits can range from diabetes control to teeth cleaning to weight loss and control of dandruff – one must always be aware on how to use this, as at the end of the day, ACV like other types of vinegar is an acid to one’s body.  

Always remember:

  1. Dilute it – This makes it more suitable for consumption. Thumb rule is 1 or 2 table spoons in a glass of water 
  2. Drink it empty stomach – and not with a belly full, as it has different effects on different kind of food in your system

Now, here are some amazing things that ACV can do for you, if you are doing it right.

Weight loss

This is one of the major reasons for ACV’s popularity today. Making it a part of a weight loss diet is advisable, but this cannot work in isolation. Exercise and keeping a calorie count will always come in handy. But a spoon of ACV in water first thing in the morning will aid in metabolism. You can also sprinkle some on the veggie salads that you are consuming.

Skincare

Now this is where ACV is a one stop shop. Pimple Acne, Dark Stops – if you use it correctly, ACV can help you get rid of most of your skin problems. While some will claim that its application has anti-ageing benefits; I will not go that far. Remember, dilution is the key. Go for a 1:8 ratio, while using it for skincare purposes.

Fights dandruff

Dandruff is a common but annoying scalp condition. It can be caused by overly oily or dry skin, or a fungus called malassezia. And here, ACV can be great for for your dandruff problem. The vinegar’s acidity changes the pH of your scalp and also has antibacterial properties. Dilute ACV with equal parts water in a spray bottle. Spritz onto your scalp evenly. Then wrap your head with a towel. After letting it sit in for at least 15 minutes, wash as usual. For best results, do this process twice a week.

Fresher breath

A lot of people use vinegar as a mouthwash. It has great antibacterial properties. The handy acetic acid kills bacteria. Dilute it and take it with a straw preferably. And wait at least half an hour before brushing your teeth afterward. This will protect your teeth while still giving you the benefit of a fresher breath.

Gets rid of smelly feet

ACV is great for a fresher breath as well as fresh feet too. Get a few paper towels, moisten them with ACV and wipe you’re feet gently with them. Do the same and clean your arm pits as well to get rid of body odor, especially on those hot and humid days.

Stay tuned for more posts on how to use ACV for skin and hair!

CleanCoconut Review!

 

Au Naturel is my new mantra! With the ever growing awareness on the hazards of using chemical skin products, I’m getting more involved and excited with using organic skincare products for myself. It’s a common knowledge that much of what we put on our skin gets absorbed into our body. Organic products are not only safe for us but for the environment as well. They focus greatly on consumer health and eco-consciousness. I personally love to indulge in skincare products that give me natural and healthy ways to nourish my skin without hidden ingredients. We are in a world where organic products are a full blown industry giving us more control of the quality and safety of the products we choose for ourselves. I owe to my skin as much as to any other body organ and I’m determined to make a wise choice. On this noble pursuit I stumbled upon CleanCoconut and I’m so glad. So here’s my journey of using CleanCoconut’s several products. I will be reviewing them gradually.

Tips & Tricks

A little bit goes along way!

  • Moisturizer
    Apply a small amount and rub in a circular motion on skin and allow oil to absorb. 
  • Under Eye & Face Treatment
    In the evening, apply oil in a light circular motion around the eyes and face.
  • Hair  & Scalp Treatment

Conditioner

Use a small dime to quarter size dollop, apply to hair and scalp. Leave in for 10-20 minutes shampoo as normal. 

For Split Ends/Frizz

Apply a tiny amount between fingertips and rub on the frizzy hairs or split ends.

  • Nails

Add a small amount to your nails to nourish cuticles while preventing peeling and cracking

TIP 1: Prevents and minimizes skin cracking on heels

TIP 2: Leave-In Conditioner: this oil can be left in overnight and should not stain your pillow. Shampoo as normal in the morning.

My Review:

I’ve been using Virgin Coconut Oil as a facial and body moisturizer as long as I can remember. I have used various brands over a period of time. CleanCoconut has proven to be of consistent quality, so I decided to give it a try. It’s about a month now and it didn’t even take that long for me to see positive results. It’s cruelty-free and makes me look beautiful. All thanks to the medium-chain fatty acids that protect and heal the skin at the same time.

I noticed my skin looks smoother and radiant! It also acts as a natural moisturizing cleanser so I use it to clean off my makeup and dirt at the end of the day. In the morning my face feels feather soft and hydrated. I have also started mixing a drop or two with my day cream, and sunscreen and my skin looks amazing! My husband was resistant to the idea as his skin is more towards oily unlike mine which is dry-normal, but I used it on him and he was impressed with how well it worked out on his skin and saved him from sunburns.

I would also like to share my story of developing bumpy skin around my arms during last winter. It somewhat looked like red rashes and visually doesn’t make you look flattering in sleeveless outfits. I tried a couple of things but nothing seemed to work out, until CleanCoconut – Virgin Organic Coconut Oil. I know it sounds like an advertisement but I can’t help. My skin condition is 100% improved and also noticed a brighter-looking skin. There is a huge quality difference between store bought and from CleanCoconut.  The quality encouraged me to use it in various other ways. I have been using the oil as a body cream post shower and as massage oil occasionally. As far as my hair is concerned they look healthier. Added bonus – my eyelashes have grown longer and thicker!

I also did a little experiment by adding the Virgin Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil with water in Neti Pot to do sinus rinse. It worked pretty good on me. I’m so glad to have a “drug-free” solution to it.

With all these wonderful experiences in hand I have started recommending CleanCoconut’s virgin coconut oil to everyone now because if you’re still not using it, you’re missing out a lot. For me coconut oil is fruit of youth and I urge you guys to give it a try at least once and see for yourself.

What Works:

  • Antioxidant Properties
  • Antibacterial Properties
  • Hydrating Moisturizer and A Deep Conditioner
  • Improves Complexion
  • Improves Signs of Aging
  • Makeup Remover
  • Eases Various Skin Conditions
  • Base Ingredient of Various Body Care Products
  • Balances Skin Tone
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Reduces Acne
  • Hair, Scalp, Nail, & Lip Conditioner

  • Restores damaged hair
  • Dandruff and Lice Free Scalp

What Doesn’t:

  • High quality coconut oil, but not a good choice for frequent users who need larger amount.

Although when you buy the huge supermarket size it can go rancid and when you keep putting your hands in the jar over time you are contaminating the product which might affect your well being. And once the jars go rancid you have to toss it bearing wastage.

  • Costlier in comparison to the local market but the quality justifies the price. It’s a high performing, result oriented product. 
  • Abstinence from the local market. Expected to be floating on Amazon soon.

In the evening, apply oil in a light circular motion around the eyes and face.  
Hair  & Scalp Treatment

Use a small dime to quarter size dollop, apply to hair and scalp.  Leave in for 10-20 minutes shampoo as normal.

For Split Ends/Frizz

Apply a tiny amount between fingertips and rub on the frizzy hair or split ends.

My Review:

I was on a trip a month and half back and as a souvenir I brought back acne. Using grapeseed oil has helped me lighten those acne spots in a month’s time which is super cool. It also helped me control them there itself, much like the brand claims. My skin feels better hydrated and has improved my skin tone a notch up.

You know I love curls and have chemically got perms done. So my hair acts up frizzy and dry at times. However, with the use of Grapeseed oil it doesn’t get frizzy after a day’s wash. Hair texture is better now for sure as far as I can tell.

These days I’m integrating the oil into moisturizers, creams, sunscreen, lotions, lip balms, shampoo, conditioners and an assortment of other products. I love it’s light, sweet balsamic aroma. There’s absolutely no dearth to its uses and application. Grapeseed oil is an excellent base for homemade cosmetology remedies indeed. I love CleanCoconut Grapeseed oil. Exquisite quality and well-priced!

Tan removal – Natural Remedies, DIY

The sun at this time of year is particularly bright and strong, so even a few minutes outside without SPF can damage our skin considerably. It can lead to unwanted skin darkening & tan as well. While some will revel in skin tan, others may be more conscious and would want to preserve their natural skin tone. To be honest, skin tan is just one thing, but too much sun exposure causes various skin problems like: wrinkles, acne, fine lines, age spots etc. To this end, it’ll be great if you apply high level SPF before stepping outdoors and maybe use umbrella. This post is for all those who suffer from skin tan no matter how much they try to escape. I’m one of those people who gets skin tan in seconds!

Now a day we have many promising skin lightening and brightening products available in the market. Most of us tend to go for quick bleach or de-tan facials or use products that might be loaded with chemicals. It’s important to consider carefully what product claims and what ingredients it has to offer. These options are not only expensive, but take toll on our skin in the long run. I personally rely more on natural homemade concoctions and it actually does better job on me than any processed chemical products.

So, today I’m going to share few of those super easy amazing homemade sun tan removal packs & scrubs that will help you achieve glowing and even toned skin.

Tan removal remedies

  1. Peel Galore
  2. Orange Mask
  3. Orange Lavender Body & Face Scrub
  4. Lemon Zesty Scrub
Peel Galore –

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp orange peel
  • 1 tsp lemon peel
  • 3 tbs raw milk

Make a smooth paste adding all the ingredients together. You can adjust the consistency by adding more peel powder if it’s too runny or add more milk if it’s too compact.

Once ready, apply the paste on your face/body. Let it dry for about 20-30 minutes. Now take some more milk and pat it over your face/body to make it little wet. Make circular finger movements and exfoliate for 1 minute. Be very gentle while you exfoliate and wash it off with tepid water. You can use this scrub pack thrice a week.

If you’re using dried lemon/orange peel powder, all you need to do is to add raw milk into the peel powders. But if you’re using fresh peels then you need to make paste in a mixer by adding milk to it, as required.

P.S. You can use both orange and lemon peel in the pack or any one of your choice. Make a small test on your skin before you try this face/body pack as it can be harsh for people with sensitive skin. You must avoid this pack if your skin has any aberration as it may aggravate the situation for you.

It’s one of the most effective scrub pack in reducing tan and gives you a golden glow.

  • Milk plays a very important role in maintaining the beauty of the skin and keeping many skin problems at bay. It has many skin benefits.
  • It’s excellent cleanser
  • shrink pores
  • good moisturizer
  • treats sunburn
  • makes skin supple and soft
  • great for improving complexion and gives radiant skin.

The Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, attributed her smooth skin and beauty to a secret ingredient, and that is milk!

  • Did you know lemon peels are nutritional powerhouse and contains 10 times more vitamins than juice itself! It has sooo many health and skin benefits. However, I’ll stick to specific benefits relating to the topic.
  • It helps to lighten age spots, blemishes, acne scars
  • has skin bleaching properties
  • enhance skin’s clarity
  • glow and suppleness
  • Has antibacterial and antioxidant benefits
  • removes fine lines and wrinkles.
  • As we all know, orange fruit is one of the best source of Vitamin C, which is good for health and skin care as well. However most of the benefits of orange are in its skin as it has more vitamin C than the fruit itself, lying dormant beneath the skin peels. Hence, we should never discard the peels and make good use of it. Always wash, clean and dry the orange peels whenever you’re having them. Choose orange with thin skin.

Process of making dry orange peel powder:

Wash orange peels thoroughly and dry them in shadow till it loses all its moisture and turn crispy. Once all dried grind them thoroughly to make fine powder. Store the orange peel powder in airtight dry container. It stays good for a long time. Mine stayed for 2 years or maybe more than that!

You can include orange peel powder in various face and body packs and see the visible difference in you. Orange peel is pretty much a boon for our skin as it helps us combat various skin issues like

  • acne
  • dark circles
  • blackheads
  • tan
  • dark spots
  • patches
  • anti-aging benefits
  • reduce blemishes and scars.

It has natural bleaching agents that helps make skin visibly brighter. Using it with milk or yogurt gives you that extra glow and remove tan. 

P.S. You can make lemon peel powder in the exactly same way as orange peel powder. The only difference is you need to peel or scrape off the cover using a peeler. We don’t need the white material underneath the lemon. All we need is the yellow/green part.

Orange Mask –

Here’s a super quick  face pack that’ll give your skin a brighter and smoother look.

You’d need:

  • Dried orange peel- 1 tbs
  • Yogurt- 1-2 tbs

Just mix dried orange peel in curd/yogurt and make a paste. Apply on the face and leave for 20 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water.


You can also make luxurious body and face sugar scrub using lemon and orange peel powder.

Orange Lavender Body & Face Scrub

Ingredients:

  • Ground white/brown sugar – ½ cup
  • Orange peel powder – 1/4th cup
  • Orange essential oil – few drops
  • Lavender oil/Olive oil (Extra Virgin) – 2 tbs
Lemon Zesty Scrub –

Ingredients:

  • Ground white/brown sugar – ½ cup
  • Lemon peel powder – 1/4th cup
  • Lemon essential oil – few drops
  • Lavender oil/Olive oil (Extra Virgin) – 2 tbs

Mix everything together in both the scrubs and keep it in a dry airtight container. Make them in small batches and do your own little experiment.

You can add some orange zest and lemon zest respectively for freshness in the scrub when you use them.

  • You can add few dried rose petals too. It’ll give out great aroma and is a powerful antioxidant, relaxing and tones the skin. 
  • Basically olive oil is a hidden beauty secret. It’s hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin. It also reverses aging effects, UV damage and is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins.
  • Lavender oil is suitable to most skin types, is one of the most versatile and multi-purpose oil. It provides overall health to skin due to it’s antiseptic properties and skin-healing benefits. It is highly soothing and also promotes tissue regeneration helping with anti-aging treatments.
  • Both brown and white sugars are used in facial and body scrubs as exfoliants because they are granular. Sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it pulls moisture from air into your skin. They contain glycolic acid which helps the skin cells to regenerate faster for a much youthful appearance.
  • Brown sugar is often used in facial scrubs as it has finer grains than white sugar. Plus it is high in vitamin B due to molasses, which is an antioxidant that helps to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. White sugar is used more for body scrubs. So you can make your own choice as per your needs.

Enjoy summer and have fun!

Hydration-Glow Serum

Hi everyone!

Today I’m going to share my recipe to make a skin glow-hydration serum. It’s very easy to make and pretty cheap unlike store bought ones. I truly believe that it’s imperative to keep your skin nourished and hydrated to restore skin elasticity and firmness. And facial serums provide lasting hydration with just a teeny-weeny dollop. They are super concentrated and surely are very important step in skincare. 

This serum that I’m going to share with you all will help in restoring skin elasticity, repair and rejuvenate the skin leaving it soft, smooth and supple. It will further enhance the skin’s natural ability to hydrate and nourish itself and glow. Gradually it will improve skin tone and texture and tend to eliminate skin imperfections such as wrinkles, fine lines and age spots and discoloration.

Try out this concoction and you’ll see what tough competition it is to store bought expensive serums.

Let’s start with the serum now!

 

List of Ingredients:

  • Vegetable Glycerin – 1 tb
  • Rose water – 2 tbs
  • Aloe vera gel – 2 tbs
  • Sweet almond oil – 3/4th – 1 tbs

You can use any oil or a combination of oils of your choice depending on what suits your skin and weather conditions.

  • Vit. E capsule – 1

Take a glass/ plastic bowl and mix all of the ingredients together for a minute or two. It will look cloudy white once mixed properly. And you’re done! Secure it in any clean plastic/glass container or in a pump bottle.

Apply this overnight for skin nourishment, hydration and glow in your skin. You can also apply this during day time and before makeup.

I have a dry-normal skin. Hence, I have used a combination of oils ( argan oil, evening primrose oil, castor oil, avocado oil ) that goes with my skin type. I will advise you to make serum in small batches and use. This way you will be able to do your own little experiment with different oils every time and figure out which face oil is right for you, starting slowly with few drops at a time. Also, you can play with the ingredients’ measurement little here and there. No big deal! You can start with what I’ve shared and once you get the feeler, you can customize as per your wishes. 🙂

Here’s brief information on the oils that I’ve mentioned in this blog for the serum.

Argan Oil

Argan oil has high concentration of vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. It’s more stable in sunlight than other antioxidants – so it’s perfect to wear during the day. It is roughly comprised of 80% fatty acids which work wonders to hydrate skin, make healthy membranes, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy collagen. It restores elasticity, and fade fine lines and wrinkles making this another excellent carrier oil for anti-aging serums.

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil has a very thick consistency. However, it is one of the healthiest carrier oils for skin. It is rich with vitamins A and E, and is collagen-boosting. It is best to use this oil in combination with other carrier oil. It is ideal for those with dry, itchy/irritated, sensitive or aging skin.

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet Almond oil contains large amounts of vitamins E and K. It also is a natural UV blocker, making it ideal for people who are largely exposed in the sun. It also helps skin to regenerate and maintain elasticity, and promote better circulation. 

Castor Oil

I have used castor oil exclusively for a brief time, and less is more when we talk about this oil. It’s very thick in consistency but it pretty much dries out your skin. The best way to bring out its wonderful properties is to mix a small amount of castor oil with other thinner oil. It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it ideal for breakout-prone skin. It is high in unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, and minerals, and can help heal discoloration and scars from acne.

Evening primrose oil

Evening primrose oil is quite effective in reducing hyper-pigmentation, redness on the skin due to any skin condition and lightens the skin naturally. If you are looking for a good moisturizer with a low comedogenic rating, evening primrose oil is a great choice. It nourishes the skin with essential fatty acids leaving a supple, smooth and youthful skin. It does prevent premature aging as it has strong antioxidant properties that help prevent free radical damage on the skin, which in turn helps prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

Try it out once and see for yourself how greatly it benefits you! See you guys soon 🙂

My 12 Best Skin Care Tips & A Bonus Face Pack

Secret to a flawless beauty is to have a good health, to be in shape, to need less makeup, to have an even skin tone and glow. So today I’m going to share 12 of my favorite skin care tips, to keep you looking your best. Try them ( all or any! ) to get that radiance you’ve always wanted.

  1. Every morning, have warm to hot water with lemon and apple cider vinegar to jump-start your digestion.
  2. Without fail use sunscreen on your face and neck every morning and as required, and so far, you would avoid 80% of new spots or wrinkles! Use sunscreen now and every day for the rest of your life.
  3. Break a sweat! Do speed-walks, yoga, swimming or try any sport or find any fitness activity that you really enjoy, and you’ll stick with them for a long haul. I believe fresh air does wonders for the skin, so go for a walk whenever possible.
  4. Eat healthy and you won’t have to count calories – have lots of fresh fruits and veggies that are rich in antioxidants.Try to incorporate these food items ( whichever suits your food habits, body and skin ) in your everyday diet as they’ll  keep you glowing inside-out : dried apricots, cucumbers, walnuts, avocado, watermelon, oranges, flax seed, chia seed, spinach, tomatoes, corn, soybeans, papaya, sweet potatoes, almonds, chicken, turkey, shellfish, salmon.
  5. Exfoliate your skin twice a week to get rid of all dirt and clogging. It will keep your skin healthy and soft.
  6. Sleep for 7 hours. No amount of makeup or any alternate measure can replace a good sound-sleep.
  7. Rinse your face with lukewarm water all round the year. Use cool (not cold) water if you have rash or redness of any kind. Icy cold water will not help your skin in any ways nor would hot water. It will only dehydrate the skin.
  8. Use Vitamin C rich food and serums. It will benefit your skin humongously!
  9. Always use moisturizer/ body lotion that goes with your skin type after shower or when you take off your makeup. Try to look for a moisturizer that is rich but not greasy. Never ever quit moisturizing. I personally always infuse few drops of oil in my moisturizer, body lotion, face packs, makeup, hair serum 🙂
  10. Drink more water.
  11. Don’t use tons of makeup. Trust me you really don’t need a lot. Just a touch here and there to accentuate your features. And also, do not worry too much about what beauty trends are “In”. I feel it’s more about self-expression in terms of makeup/hair/fashion. Do what makes you feel happy and beautiful!
  12. If you suffer with serious acne/pimples problems then you must cut-off sugar and carbs for a while.

And now finally I would like to share a turmeric-based face pack. Its regular use will give you a flawless glowing skin. It will also help you to control acne/pimples.

You’ll need :

  • Honey – 2 tablespoons
  • Collage 2017-04-19 16_26_31Turmeric powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut milk – 1 teaspoon

Mix all the ingredients into a smooth consistency and apply evenly on clean and dried face. Let it dry for 10 minutes. You can reapply another layer if you want to keep it longer. Rinse face with tepid water and pat dry.

Don’t forget to moisturize! 🙂

I would prefer to use this mask at night, before going to sleep. In the morning you will see how beautiful golden glow your skin has.
