Hey everyone 🙂 I am back (After like , ages , isn’t it ?? J ) with my 1st post for this season :).So it is April and officially “Summer” here in Chennai, even though for the past 3 months it has been terribly hot !! 😦 I am very sure this year it is going to be really tough to handle the scorching sun, it is burning hot during the day time. I have to walk/cycle for 10 mins from my office building to the Food court and that’s the time of the day I hate to the core !! 😦 (you-know-the-office-with-sprawling-campus-and-palatial-buildings).Anyways, I have to dare to shake hands with the sun,put on my shades and pedal the cycle and as soon as i reach the “FC” ( the food court ) I just run inside and breathe a sigh of thank-god-i’m-not-burnt 🙂
Oops don’t worry , these are not the ways to handle the summer heat, that I am gonna talk about and make you run away from my blog, sorry for my non-stop-banters 🙂
Well, I would share with you all some skin care essentials that I recently hauled , to give Mr.Sun a run !! (he he my attempt at poetic writing , I am no good at that, but my sister writes some amazing stuff, check her writing here Mythly Imagines )
So here comes my summer skincare haul *drumrolls* *Curtains Open*
I love scrubs 🙂 just because they help remove all those ugly dead skin cells and reveal the younger skin underneath. This particular scrub attracted my attention with that vibrant and refreshing green colour, more so because of the mention of the active ingredients in that the as kiwi and grapes :).
I love lip balms and I am literally crazy for them, just cannot control myself if I spot any cute and colourful lip balm/chap stick that smells great (but I only buy if I need, so i am not a collector, as such). Continue reading →
“Finally”, ummm may be this should not be the first word to start a post but then I feel this would be the apt word o start this post and to exactly describe my feeling , yes ! “Finally” (again!! Alright ! he he..i won’t repeat it again!) I convinced myself to splurge in a LUSH product 🙂 yay ! have a look at my teeny weeny haul 🙂
I started using scrubs for face and body only a couple of years back and before that I was totally ignorant about these useful scrubs. If any of you do not know the goodness that a scrub can give I would tell you what it is in simple words,
It’s a granular product which is available as cream based or gel-based or in powder form that when used over your skin scrapes off the dead skin cells and reveals the healthy and younger skin cells. Thus you get a healthy glow when you scrub over the face and body when you exfoliate.
I am planning to do a detailed post on the different types of scrub and what variety of scrub is recommended for different skin types .Keep watching my space for that post which is coming up soon.
So today I am going to share with you the most essential product for winters especially for your lips. The Dry weather hampers ad damages our lips making it chapped and worn out L Let me tell you just like the rest of our body, our lips also need exfoliation. Dry, chapped lips are a result of nothing but dead cells settled over the lip surface. Using a lip scrub gently removes the dead cells from the lip surface and the younger cells a revealed, this helps in restoring the original lip colour also.
It is generally recommended to use extremely mild scrubs /exfoliators on the lips twice a week or weekly once. Most of you are aware that lip scrubs are available everywhere out now and most of them are extremely pricey. Why buy such products loaded with preservatives and chemicals when it is possible to make a wonderful natural scrub for lips with items available at our very own kitchen 🙂

Blossom Kochar’s AromaMagic Hand Cream
My experience: Constant use of keypad or keyboard for long hours does make our hands dry and damaged, though it is significant only in the long run. I am sure many of us working in the IT sectors would definitely agree. So why wait till things go bad? Our hands need special attention as they are the most important part of our body. Regular manicure and ensuring clean hands helps to keep our hands softer and beautiful. Continue reading →
