Rejuvenate Your Skin While You Sleep : Night Cream For All Skin Types

If your night time skin care routine doesn’t involve a night cream, then your skin is bereft of a lot of benefits that can help in its renewal and give a beautiful glow the next morning. This is because during the night time, our skin is at rest and tends to absorb more nutrients than usual. Hence, aiding your skin with a good night cream can help to fight with a lot of problems like fine lines, skin ageing, pigmentation, dry patches, etc.

The night cream does it work throughout your sleeping time and you wake up to a glowing, fresh and smooth face. I have come up with some night creams suitable for dry and oily skin beauties which may help in your skin repair and you may flaunt that glow the next morning. 😉

==> For Dry Skin :

I have two options for people with dry skin. You may use anyone which you find more suitable for your skin

  • Biotique Bio Wheat Germ FIRMING Night Cream : This is a nice pick for people with dry skin as it a thick cream suitable to heal those dry patches, fine lines and wrinkles. This cream contains wheat germ which is not only a good hydrating ingredient but also locks in the moisture. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 230/-
  • Himalaya Youth Eternity Night Cream : This is also a nice option to consider. It has a light fragrance, blends in the skin very easily and doesn’t leave any oily residue. The best part is that it comes in a pump packaging, so you pump out the required product and the rest of the cream is left untouched. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 499/-

==> For Oily Skin :

  • Just Herbs Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel: Its very tricky to select moisturizers and creams for oily skin because any excess moisture may cause break outs and acne. We need a balance of moisture in our night cream. This gel is one such product. It is neither too creamy nor completely gel based, so it gives an adequate amount of moisture to our skin. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 575/-

==> For Normal to Combination Skin :

  • Ecotique Saffron Oil : It is a perfect match for a night cream for people with normal skin. Needless to mention the benefits of saffron, this oil works wonders to the skin. Though it is on an expensive side but a very small amount is required for each use so the whole bottle can last for a few months. Also, don’t forget to check the discounts. Even though it is an oil but it is not at all sticky and blends in very well. It helps in reducing signs of ageing, pigmentation and blemishes. It can used by dry skin beauties too. Click Here To Buy.

==> Very Dry Skin :

  • Kama Ayurveda Night Cream : If you are struggling with very dry skin, tired of reapplying creams and moisturizers to those white patches and still hunting for suitable products, then I will definitely recommend this night cream : Kama Ayurveda Rejuvenating And Brightening Ayurvedic Night Cream. Though this is a very expensive cream but each drop of it is worth it. It renews the skin, evens out the skin tone, gives a youthful glow, has antiseptic properties, etc. In all it is a treat to your skin. Click Here To Buy.

Salon Like Hair Spa At Home : 5 Simple Steps To Silky Soft Hair

We all love to have healthy and silky smooth hair. Treating your hair with a hair spa can help in improving hair texture, promoting hair growth, dealing with scalp oil & dandruff and giving an over all nourishment to your scalp and hair. But a single visit to a salon for this can be very expensive especially if you have long hair. Also, we don’t want to risk our hair as we don’t know what products are being used.

But what if we do the same treatment at home? It will save you a lot of money. Also, if you don’t have time for home made recipes, there are some really effective products available in the market. This will save a lot of time too. I have listed these products as well.

Treat your hair with a salon like hair spa with these 5 steps and get beautiful tresses.

1. Massage – Take any oil, whichever you like (coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil or even a mixture of these) and squeeze a vitamin E capsule and few drops of castor oil to it. Also, add some aloe vera gel if you like. Warm this mixture and gently massage your scalp with it. You may also use any hair spa cream available in the market or use any homemade one also. A good massage will improve blood circulation and stimulate hair growth.

2. Steam – After massaging your hair, you may use the traditional method of wrapping up a warm towel over your head for steam but make sure not to use hot towel. You may also take a moist shower cap and use a dryer over it. Steam will help to infuse the goodness of oil deep into the hair and retain the moisture.

3. Shampoo – Now, shampoo your hair. There are a lot of hair spa shampoos available in the market. You may choose any one which suits you. But the one which I prefer and worked really well for me is the Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Shampoo For Dry And Damaged Hair. It makes your hair manageable, strong and shiny in just one use. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 575/-
4. Mask – Post shampooing your hair, apply a mask to your hair from root to tips in sections and make sure to make thin sections. This way,  the mask will reach each and every hair strand. Keep it on for 10-15 minutes and wash it off with water. You may pick any mask of your choice or prepare one at home but the one which I prefer is from the same wella range, Wella Professionals Enrich Moisturizing Treatment For Dry And Damaged Hair. It improves the hair texture, makes them strong and gives a silky smooth effect. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 600/-
If you wish to buy both shampoo and conditioner, you may check out Wella Shampoo and conditioner combo here. The combo is cheaper than the individual products. 😀

5. Serum – Finally, when you have washed your hair, apply a serum to moist hair along their length. This will give a nice shine to the hair as well as make them really smooth and strong. A good hair serum also protects them from UV rays and prevents hair breakage. The one I absolutely love is the Livon Moroccan Silk Serum. Just one pump of this product is enough to give that gloss and strength to the hair. The whole bottle will last for almost a year so, it is full value for money. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 259/-

You may follow these steps once a month but if you have really damaged hair, you may follow this twice a month. These steps helped me in controlling hair fall and made them long, healthy and voluminous.

If you find these steps useful, do let me know in the comment section below. If you have some other recommendations, please share that too, I would love to try those out.

Get Soft And Supple Skin this Winter : Skincare Guide For Dry Skin

Finally winters have arrived. The season of fog, cold breeze, roasted sweet potatoes, gajar ka halwa and what not. 😀
But this season comes with some extra care for people with dry skin because their skin gets too dry, itchy and flaky. It is difficult to keep your skin moist in such a cold weather and the hunt for moisture retaining products go on and on.

If you are struggling with dry skin, then you may try this routine involving products which will retain the moisture in your skin and make it soft and supple.

1. Face wash – Do not wash your face more than twice a day as it will take away all the moisture from your skin. Also, make sure not to use hot water for washing your face instead you may use warm water. For dry skin, one needs a face wash that not only cleanses the skin but also prevents it from drying, so always look for soap free cleansers. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is one such option. It is a  mild cleanser which leaves skin soft and smooth. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 428/-.

2. Toner- A toner is really good for dry skin to wipe out dirt from the pores but make sure to use alcohol free toners because alcohol tends to dry out the skin. I find rose water as the best toner for dry skin because it is very hydrating, soothing and nourishing. You may use rose water from any brand but the one I would suggest is the VLCC Rose Water Toner, one of the best toners in an affordable range. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 150/-.
3. Scrub – Scrubbing your face with a scrub twice a week is very essential to get rid of dead skin cells. But make sure not to use very gritty and harsh scrubs as they might damage your skin. One of the mild scrubs which you may try is the Biotique Bio Walnut Purifying & Polishing Scrub. It has walnut oil to replenish your skin as well as soft granules to remove the dead skin. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 199/-.

4. Mask – A well hydrating face mask will help restore the moisture of your dry skin. Use a mask twice a week after scrubbing your face. You may try Aroma Magic Hydrating Seaweed Pack for that baby soft skin. It has a gel consistency and gives a dewy and fresh look to the skin. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 395/-.

5. Moisturizer – The most important step for dry skin is moisturizing. People with such skin type look for such a product which can lock in the moisture and keep the skin hydrated for a longer time. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion For Sensitive Or Dry Skin is one such product. It binds in the moisture, improves the texture of the skin and keeps it hydrated for a long time. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 684/-.

6. Sunblock – No skincare routine is complete without a sunscreen. Sunscreen is a must for all skin types in any weather. To prevent pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, etc, always wear a sunscreen before stepping out. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is a nice light weight sunscreen which you may use. Though it is oil free, still it works well for dry skin and doesn’t leave a white cast on the face. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 549/-.

I hope this routine helps you in treating your dry skin. If you have tried some other products and they have worked well on you, do share in the comment section. Also, if this routine works well for you, I would be happy to know about it. Till then, stay hydrated. 😉

Say Good Bye To Acne : 6 Steps Skincare Regime For Oily Skin

Struggling with those pesky and painful pimples on your face? Did that tiny little zit spoil your look for an important event? Are you tired of hiding those acne scars? If yes, then welcome to the club of acne prone skin beauties.. 😀

Dealing with pimples and the scars they leave behind is a big pain. What to use and what not to is a big challenge. We spend so much time and money looking for the best anti acne products but at times they work well and at times they don’t. So, you may follow this routine to say good bye to your acne.

  1. Face Wash – For treating acne and its scars, Pond’s Pimple Clear Face Wash is the one which I found really effective. It washes away all the oil, gunk and dirt from the skin and heals acne marks too. You can definitely try this and see the difference in a few days. It is one of the most effective yet affordable face wash I have come across. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 69/-
  2. Toner – I have seen many people who skip this step but a toner is very important in any skincare regime for oily skin. After washing your face, take some toner on a cotton pad and wipe your face. It helps to regulate the pore size and cleanse the pores. You may use Lotus Herbals Basil tone Cucumber Basil Clarifying And Balancing Toner. Enriched with extracts of Basil and cucumber, it is very soothing for acne prone skin. Click Here To Buy. 
    Price – 265/-
  3. Scrub – We must scrub our face twice a week. This is really important to get rid of the dead skin, impurities, blackheads and excess oil. You may use Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub. Needless to mention the benefits of neem for acne, so this will absolutely make a huge difference to your acne and its scars. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 135/-
  4. Mask- When we are talking about skincare routine, we can not forget the mask. This step should also be done twice a week after scrubbing. A mask is really important to deeply cleanse the skin, absorb all the excess oil and leave a refreshing effect. The one which is my absolute favorite is the Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask. Green tea is a really good ingredient for acne prone skin, so this mask will help in controlling acne. You may also use it as a spot treatment. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 490/-
  5. Moisturizer- We often believe the myth that oily skin doesn’t need a moisturizer and so we skip this step. But that’s not the right thing to do because in the absence of a moisture layer, our skin tends to produce more oil which may lead to acne. So, a water-based or a non oily moisturizer is a must have product. You may use Lakme Peach Milk Moisturizer SPF 24 PA Sunscreen Lotion. This has a very light texture and absorbs very well. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 240/-
  6. Sunblock – One of the most most important product is a good sunblock. Not using a sunblock is the reason behind most of our issues like acne, pigmentation, dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines, etc. So, definitely include a sunblock in you vanity. You may use Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-In-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock SPF-40. It gives a matte effect plus it has a light tint to it which evens out the skin tone. Click Here To Buy.
    Price – 415/-
    These are all the products I found effective in getting rid of acne. If you like this routine, do tell me in the comments below. Also, if you have tried some other product which you found really effective for acne, feel free to share the same. I would love to try those too. 🙂

Budget Friendly Makeup Kit For Beginners : 10 Must Have Products

When I was a beginner in makeup, I faced a lot of problems like finding the right shade, the right product for my skin and what not. But the most crucial question was that is this makeup in my budget? This is because, being a beginner, we don’t want to spend a lot of money in makeup but at the same time, we don’t want to risk our skin to low quality products. In all, we look for products that are value for money.

So, to help you out, I have prepared a list of makeup products to include in your kit that will definitely suit your budget as well as your skin.

  1. Primer –  The most important product that we often skip is the primer but using it before applying makeup will keep your makeup long lasting. For this, you may use Nivea for Men Sensitive After Shave balm. Yes, a men’s product in a makeup kit might sound weird but trust me. it is the most affordable primer one can find. It has really amazing results too. Click here To Buy
    Price – 245/-
  2. Foundation – Investing in a good makeup base is very beneficial since your whole makeup look is based on that and a good base will not harm you skin at all. Maybelline fit me foundation is my favorite as it gives that perfect matte look, blends in very easily and the whole bottle will last for a really long time. You may choose the shade according to your skin tone. Click Here To Buy
    Price – 575/-
  3. Concealer – If you have dark circles, pigmentation or acne marks on your face, you may use a concealer, else you can skip this product. For beginners, L.A girl pro conceal is the best. It has liquid consistency which makes it very easy to blend. Click Here To Buy
    Price – 595/-
  4. Compact – To set your makeup, a compact is very necessary and I recommend Sugar Cosmetics As nude As It Gets compact powder. Though, it is a little expensive but the product is really worth its price. Click Here To Buy
    Price – 699/-
  5. Eyeliner and Kajal – If you find it difficult to apply liquid liners and end up getting messy eyes, you must definitely use Maybelline New York Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. It is a gel liner so you can create that perfect wing. Also, you can use it as a kajal too. So, one product two purposes..:D Click Here To Buy
    Price – 525/-
  6. Eye shadow – For a beginner in makeup, a complete eye shadow palette will be useless and expensive. In that case, makeup revolution mono eye shadows are the best. You may pick the color you may use quite often but if you really want a general colour, then Makeup Revolution-Mono Eyeshadow – Dirty Clash will be the best. It is a golden copper shade which can match most of your outfits. Click Here To Buy
    Price – 295/-
  7. Eyebrow shaper – We often overlook this product which can actually make a lot of difference to our look. Well defined eyebrows enhances the entire look. Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper will give you natural and well defined eyebrows. Click Here To Buy

  8. Mascara – Mascara brightens up the eyes and give an intense look to the eye makeup. Maybelline New York Magnum Barbie Mascara is the one which gives that perfect look in just one coat. Click Here To Buy

  10. Lipstick – How can one forget lipsticks? Of course, it is the most important part of any makeup kit. Here, I am giving some lipstick options covering some generic colors which you may need.
