My Experience with Biotique Bio Papaya Exfoliating Face Wash

Biotique Bio Papaya Exfoliating Face Wash comes in a gel form with many tiny Papaya granules present. Due to micro-exfoliating granules, it is not harsh on the face. The granules are tiny but extremely effective that you can very well see the result after its first wash. Rub it mildly for few seconds and the facewash clears out all your dead, dull skin and blackheads. Though it doesn’t lather much but dissolves face makeup effectively. Since papaya can act as a youth activator and natural exfoliator to revitalize skin without inflammation or irritation, It’s an excellent face wash and works wonderfully on all skin types. A must have in summer. I have already reviewed this face wash earlier, you may read my detailed review here.

My experience with Biotique Bio Sandalwood 50+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion

Biotique Bio Sandalwood 50+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion comes in lightest pink in color. The consistency is a bit thick. It definitely smells like a bunch of herbs with sandal and I so love it, very soothing and refreshing! ❤ The lotion looks thick but once you apply, it spreads and absorbs into your skin very well without leaving a white cast! The best part is that It is a non-greasy(oil free) sunscreen lotion which makes it perfect for summer. Not only it smells good but also it keeps my skin refreshed throughout the day. I have a normal skin and it’s a very light yet moisturizing at the same time. So you don’t need a moisturizer separately! Since it’s really a very water-resistant lotion, you must have this in summer. Certainly, very effective in preventing tanning, definitely one of my favorites sunscreen lotions.

5 Skin Care Habits You Should Follow Before You Turn 30

Hey, lovelies!

The skin is youthful and soft and plumb till the age of 30. Many of us, who are blessed genetically, do not even have to fight the usual problems of skin such as blemishes, acne or premature ageing. Maybe that is the reason why most women believe their skin doesn’t need much of a skincare till they are 30 years old. However, the fact that your skin is healthy till 30 makes it even more important to maintain it well and keep it strengthened for a future phase. It is the best time to take all the measures to preserve its youthfulness. Note down these habits now.

1. Regular Exercise

Woman exercise.jpg

Your body, just like your skin, remains fit, resistant and youthful on its own till 30. So it is good to make a habit of exercising regularly when it is time. Exercise cleanses your skin and inner organs by wreathing out the dirt inside. That is the reason why you get that glow on your skin when you are exercising regularly. It is as important as your skincare routine

2. How much water do you drink in a day?

Drink water.png

This is the most popular, yet the most ignored way of keeping your skin youthful. Trust me, water can do wonders to your skin. So make sure you keep your skin hydrated by drinking at least 5 liters of water during a day. To improve the ability to drink higher amounts of water than you are drinking now, avoid drinking caffeine and colas.

3. Are you avoiding fats?

eat fats.jpg

Not following a proper diet plan and binging on junk food will damage your skin for sure. But for a healthy looking skin, just having a diet that is both nutritious and full of fiber, such as a lot of fruits and veggies, is not enough. The intake of fats is also very important. A lot of young men and women commit this blunder of avoiding fats to look good. They must, on the contrary ensure a daily dose of seeds, nuts, and healthy oils, which make skin radiant and youthful.

4. How’s your skincare routine?

skincare routine

It is important to develop a good skincare routine habit so long as your skin is healthy. Do cleansing, toning and moisturizing at least twice a day. It is basic knowledge not to sleep with makeup on. Carefully remove every trace of makeup while are you preparing to go to bed as it plays a key role keeping up the glow on your skin.

5. Selection of skincare products

Remember to look for skincare products with antioxidants. Your facial oils and serums must have ingredients that contain vitamins A, C, E, as these protect your skin against air pollutants. Similarly, products with plant-based oils help restoring skin from sun damage. These ingredients also work against premature ageing by strengthening a dehydrated skin, preventing fine lines and wrinkles.

With all the above tips, be religious about applying your sunscreen, no matter what. The sun’s UV rays damage the skin, causing cancer and ageing. So there is no alternative to wearing sunscreen. If you follow these simple steps, you can keep up the youthfulness of your skin for many years to come.

Sunscreen is Important

So, Give the break to the things you have been doing till now and adapt these wonderful habits to stay young and beautiful!!!

WINTER SKIN CARE

Heya my loves!

Hope you all are doing fine!!

Happy winter! So Finally, the winter is here! We all love Winter!!! ❤ ❤ Don’t we? But, Cold winter air can create a mess for your skin and hair. As the temperature decreases, so does your skin’s moisture. flaking, itchiness are common during winter. In fact getting wrinkles is very common in winter! Ji Haan !!! :/ :/ Thus as weather conditions change, you too implement some simple changes in your skincare routine, plus choosing right products, can stay healthy looking all year round.

Here are some essential winter care tips for you which will not only help you to look your skin and hair healthy but will also prevent your skin from early signs of aging. Sounds interesting? Read on then. . . .

Change your cleanser

change your  cleanser.jpg

Cleansers can be extremely drying to the skin. Mild, unscented and soap free cleansers are the best for your skin because they help to maintain its natural moisture. Moisturizing cleansers are a good choice too. Avoid products that contain a high concentration of alcohol. Replace your foaming cleanser with a creamy one (like cleansing milk for example). That way you ensure that your skin does not turn dry after cleansing. After cleansing, don’t leave the skin naked for more than 30 seconds, as this can dehydrate it, leading to increased dryness and wrinkles. Apply a hydrating toner and moisturizer to seal in moisture.

Choose your moisturizer wisely

moisturiser

Some over-the-counter moisturizers have petroleum-based ingredients that can actually further dry your skin in the winter months. Be sure to choose a smart formula that has natural, nourishing ingredients. Go for an oil-based rather than a water-based solution, as it’s more likely to help your skin retain moisture in the winter. You can also try some natural moisturizing oils as they are made with natural, hydrating ingredients like lavender, olive, chamomile, jojoba, and more which help soothe dry and itchy skin.

Maximize your moisturizer

Maximize your moisturizer.jpg

Changing your skin care routine in the winter necessary for everyone. Skin becomes drier in cold weather, especially if it’s windy, because the moisture of the skin is evaporated more quickly by the wind, and the skin doesn’t produce as much oil. Try using a slightly heavier moisturizer than you use in the summer, although still make sure that it’s suitable for your skin type. Don’t forget to moisturize right after you wash. Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin. Keep a bottle near the bathtub, shower stall and at every sink and use liberally every time you wash. Make sure you moisturize every morning, especially if you are going outside, to prevent your skin from becoming dry and flaky. At night also, before going to bed, wash your face to remove makeup and pollutants, which could irritate your skin, and apply moisturizer to treat your skin while you sleep.

Don’t forget to exfoliate your skin in winter

Don't forget to exfoliate your skin in winter.jpg

Adding an exfoliating step into your skincare routine is a must. Gentle exfoliation will help to remove dead surface skin cells. Don’t exfoliate too frequently during the cold months as scrubbing your face too often leads to losing oils and result in dry skin. Scrubbing further will make it more sensitive, so you should be gentler with your skin by using exfoliators once or twice a week, not more. Avoid physical exfoliators, which contains rough beads as that will irritate your skin and make your skin’s situation worse. Using a scrubber while having a bath will exfoliate the dry and dead skin leaving you feeling soft and fresh. Exfoliating body washes are also a good option in the winter months.

Don’t skip your under eye care

under eye

An eye cream is a great addition to any skincare routine during the winter. The skin around the eye is very thin and harsh weather can be extra tough on the eye area. Extra moisture around the eye will help to keep the skin hydrated and soothed. Plus, many eye creams offer additional benefits such as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.

Keep it Warm but not Hot

warm bath

If the temperature inside is much hotter than outside it can irritate your skin and can even cause broken capillaries from the temperature shock when you get home or when you go out. While walking around at home wear slippers or warm socks to prevent getting cold feet which can cause chilblains, which cause your toes to swell, the skin to become sore and sometimes causes permanent disfigurement. The same applies for when you are washing. Having a hot shower or bath can cause skin irritation if the weather is cold. As well as this it strips the natural moisture out of the skin and hair. So turn the temperature down from hot to warm. Lukewarm water will not take away the moisture from your skin.

Change your hair care routine in winter

FullSizeRender 402.jpg

There are plenty of shampoos that help your hair be strong and healthy during winter. Hair goes dry, weak and brittle during winter but if you give it the right treatment, you can avoid it becoming a big issue. Look for shampoos and conditioners which aim to protect and heal your hair, making sure it’s slightly more moisturizing than what you use normally, but still good for your hair type. Also, it may be a good idea to try a moisturizing hair treatment (Oiling your Hair)once or twice a fortnight to help repair the effects of winter, you could even make one yourself !

Your lips need extra attention in Winter

Lip-balm-dries-lips-winter

Don’t forget your lips this winter. Lips get chapped very soon and also lose moisture easily. Apply a moisturizing lip balm when you are doing the rest of your skin care, make it part of your routine. Before you go outside apply some Vaseline to your lips as this creates a protective barrier between the cold air and your lips. Remember that Vaseline isn’t actually moisturizing, it’s only protective, so use another lip balm alongside it. Investing in a good lip balm is a good option. I personally use Nivea Lip Balm. You can simply apply the coconut oil on your lips before you go to sleep. This is one of my favorite routines. Try exfoliating your lips to smooth away and dead or flaky skin. Do this by applying a generous amount of Vaseline to your lips, then rub either with sugar with a soft toothbrush. Use circular motions and then rinse your lips and apply balm. Be gentle when exfoliating your lips.

Special care for Hands and Feet

hands and feet care

Make sure you always put on loads of moisturizer in your hands and feet, before going out, rather carry a moisturizer with you if you want to have soft hydrated hands. To keep the skin soft and comfortable, massage hand moisturizer into your hands in the morning and evening, as well as every time you wash your hands. If you’re worried about having greasy hands, there are non-greasy feeling hand creams available. If your hands are extremely dry, apply a suitable moisturizer at night and then wear light cotton gloves to keep the moisture on them. The same way, apply lots of moisturizer on your feet and wear socks and go to sleep. This will make sure the moisturizer has fully seeped into your skin making it soft and well hydrated next morning. Once you have washed your hands, make sure you dry them before going out into the cold. Not doing so will make your skin dry.

Eat a balanced diet and stay hydrated from the inside Out

eating balance diet

Eating a healthy diet full of nutrients and vitamins is the best way to keep your hair and skin from looking and feeling healthy. Eating foods high in water content can help hydrate your skin from the inside out. Try apples, oranges, kiwi, and watery veggies like celery, tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots etc. Eating well will also make you feel great too! As we tend to drink less water in the winter because we turn to hot drinks like coffee and tea. Remember that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time. If you have trouble with maintaining a balanced diet then take multivitamins, but remember that this is not an effective replacement for the real nutrition.

Try DIY Masks

diy-banana-face-mask

Homemade hydrating masks can provide needed moisture in the winter months. Use natural moisturizing ingredients like honey, yogurt, olive and jojoba oils, almond oil, bananas, and aloe Vera. (I have my own Aloe vera plant at home..yiippyy !!) Mix what you like together to create a cream or paste, and leave on skin for 10-30 minutes for lasting hydration.

It is also important not to overlook an SPF product in the winter. Even though it is cold, UV rays from the sun can continue to cause damage. Regardless of the weather, an SPF product should be worn every day for complete skin care.

Raw Rituals Cherubic Face Serum - Review

Raw Rituals Cherubic Face Serum – Review

Hola my lovely readers !!!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!

Are you using Face Serum as a part of your daily skin care routine? If not, then you are seriously missing out an essential part of beauty regimen?

Mostly, people have a misconception about face serums that serums are just a more expensive form of skin moisturizer and you don’t need them. But in reality, a serum is your go-to product to improve the overall look of your complexion. The higher concentrated active ingredient of serums, restore cell growth and bring back the glow to your skin by moisturizing it deeply. When used on a regular basis, it actually slows down the signs of aging like dark spots, wrinkles etc. Moreover, due to higher concentration of active ingredients, you need very less quantity (a few drops) to cover your entire face. Isn’t it exciting? So, today I am going to talk about Cherubic Face Serum from Raw Rituals. I have already reviewed their Caffeine Infused Body Scrub. You may read it here. Back to the Cherubic Face Serum, I have been using it since last 2 months and this is what my experience is . . .

Raw Rituals Cherubic Face Serum – Review

Raw Rituals Cherubic Face Serum comes in small royal blue glass bottle attached with a white and silver color dropper. The dropper makes it very easy to control how much you use each time. The screw-on dropper is made of glass and the dropper’s cap is made of plastic like other droppers. The dropper has been designed in such a way that you don’t lose even a single drop of it. It’s not only travel-sized bottle you can carry on the go but the cap screws on tight to prevent leaks as well thus its ideal for storing.

Though the fonts are too tiny but yet readable. Must say, the packaging of Raw Rituals Cherubic face serum is just perfect!

The texture of this serum is liquid. It’s an oil-based serum but yet it doesn’t feel much oily when applied on the face. It feels a non-sticky serum and when you use it, it penetrates deep into your skin very well. It has an amazing and refreshing citrusy smell (lemony) with a lavender hint in it, which is not empowering at all.

I wash my face and neck areas thoroughly and pat dry then I take only 3 drops of Raw Rituals Cherubic Face serum and apply it all over my face and neck in circular motion for 2-3 minutes until it absorbs into my skin (Yes, it takes only 2-3 minutes to penetrate into your skin, isn’t it great!!). Then the next part, I apply the moisturizer on my face. You can even apply it before Actually, the serum should be applied and left on overnight to achieve the best results thus I repeat the same every night followed by my night cream. Imagine, if you wake up in the morning with a super smooth and glowing skin, how would you feel? 😀 🙂 well, I saw notable results within a week of usage. I’ve been using this serum for more than 2 months now and I am extremely happy with my overall skin tone! My skin is shinier and brighter than before! The slight pigmentation near my chin and upper lips have almost vanished.

The lemon essential oil helps in curing uneven complexion. Lemons are the rich source of vitamin C. Vitamin C can help support in making of collagen, which may result, the plumper and firm skin. It’s another ingredient, sweet almond oil nourishes and gives a glow to your skin. The Jojoba oil, Lavender essential oil, pomegranate seed oil, cedarwood essential oil and vitamin-E essential oil, they all have excellent skin-improving benefits. Actually, It’s an excellent face serum for dry skin beauties. Due to its natural ingredients, you don’t need to worry about any of its ingredients. Last but not the least, look at the price Guys !! The price is to die for!!! Trust me, you are not going to find any high-quality serum at this price.

The Nature’s Co Orange bath salt has small and big crystals in slight off-white color. The texture of the salt is absolutely smooth. They also gets crushed and dissolve easily in the water. As its name says it has a citrusy aroma infused with its natural aroma. I just love refreshing aroma as it instantly uplifts your mood and senses as soon as you open the jar! The amazing aroma is absolutely relaxing and soothing that lingers for quite a long time on my skin.

How to use:

Add a small quantity into your cool or warm bathing water. How much salt you use, depends on your own personal preference. I personally use one or sometimes 2 handful of orange bath salt at a time. Take a square of cheesecloth cloth or any square thin cotton cloth and seal the salts inside by knotting a string. Just fill the tub to the desired level and drop pouch into the bath water and swirl it around to help dissolve completely. Now take your bath by soaking yourself in it, relax, unwind, and enjoy your bath!

The amazing aroma is relaxing and puts you in a meditative state instantly. I usually like it using directly on my skin for exfoliation. For that, I add some water to it to make a paste and then apply it over your skin and rub it gently. This makes my skin clean, fresh, smooth, shiny and so lively! ❤ Due to orange extract and orange peel powder, It actually works more effectively on the skin and my whole bathroom smells great! Let me tell you that the smell is not at all overpowering, just right on my skin. In fact, sometimes, I feel like I have my mini spa at home. 🙂 ❤ ❤

Review on UVMED Tinted Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 UVA by Ethicare Remedies

TEXTURE:

As per the description it is a Sunscreen gel but in reality it’s a cream based sunscreen. It is a tinted sunscreen which comes in light pink-beige color and blends very well with skin tone. The consistency is medium thick which spreads evenly and easily onto your skin and doesn’t leave any white caste behind after application like many sunscreen lotions do. It doesn’t give you complete matt finished look as mentioned in the description but it gives slightly dewy finished look. The semi-dewy finished look doesn’t feel greasy or heavy on skin either, in fact it feels very light on your skin. It has a mild floral fragrance, which I feel is quite refreshing.

Review on UVMED Tinted Sunscreen Gel SPF 50 UVA by Ethicare Remedies

Since the formula feels hydrating which gives me silky touch, sometimes I skip my moisturiser. I suggest you all to use it underneath your BB cream or foundation followed by compact powder. The smooth texture of this cream gives ultimate smooth surface, which further helps in spreading the foundation evenly and easily onto the skin. oily skin beauties may not need the moisturizing as it hydrates skin well.

Hey guys ! This week has been a very busy one for me that couldn’t post anything! I missed you all. :/ Did you miss me ?

Anyways, besides those panda under eye circles, acnes, wrinkles skin, there is another major problem mostly people are suffering from and that is “Open Pores”! Yes..Open pores are quite a big concern nowadays. I have had a lot of personal queries asking how someone would go about shrinking their enlarged pores. These open pores not only hamper your beauty but also can make your skin look aged, uneven and dull? Open pores can further increase other skin problems such as skin roughness, blackheads, and acnes. Isn’t it? Well, enlarged pores are very common in oily skin but that if you think that they don’t strike on normal skin people, unfortunately, they do!

  • Avoid Oil-based Makeup because the oil content will again clog your pores.
  • exfoliate your skin to remove any excess dead skin cells or dirt in the pores.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going out as it will reduce the enlargement and clogging of pores.
  • Let your skin breathe throughout the night, never sleep in your makeup. Also try to decrease the amount of makeup you wear on your face.

The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The color of the face wash is white which is bit runny in consistency. I love its amazing typical and refreshing Ayurvedic aroma. It lathers well and cleanses efficiently. It leaves my skin so smooth and refreshed! I have normal skin and it did not dry out my skin but it might be bit drying for Dry Skin Beauties.
