Who does not suffer with acne? We all once in a while get breakouts here and there. In this video posted on instagram, youngcouture demonstrates the home remedy to get away with acne, which might help you with a clear skin, to which I second!

1st remedy-

Take half a lemon juice and add 2 spoons of oatmeal and mix some water. Smoothen this mixture on face and keep it on for some time and rinse it later. I suggest keeping it on face for roughly 15 minute to let the mixture do its wonders.

2nd remedy-

Take a freshly cut aloe vera stem and scrap the raw aloe gel and rub it onto your face. You can leave it as it is on your face for the entire day if you are indoors or wash it off after 15 minutes.

 Lemons being anti bacterial are rich in vitamin C and good for a clear complexion and also helps in diminishing the scars.

Oats are something I also swear by and they are very good for dry and itchy skin and also they are a natural exfoliator.

Aloe vera being anti-inflammatory helps to soothe the redness and heal acne.

So go ahead, try it to feel the difference.

Guilt-free indulgence: Chocolate face mask

Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 1.06.24 am

Chocolate…Who doesn’t love this delight??? It keeps me craving for more, more and more! If the very thought of biting into a piece of chocolate makes you happy, then how about toppling it all over your face? Psychology says that the very aroma of chocolate stimulates the emotional ‘feel-good’ centers of the brain.

Chocolates are full of antioxidants which preserve your youth and beauty by fighting free radicals from hurting collagen – a protein which imparts elasticity to our skin, revitalizes and moisturizes the skin and helps in renewal of skin cells.

Then why not smoothen this guilt- free indulgence that imparts a healthy glow to your skin and that too when it is available at the ease of your home. These exotic beauty treatments in a saloon can weigh heavy on pocket! I bring to you a simple yet effective DIY face mask-

Mix 1 tsp Unsweetened Cocoa powder with 2 tsp egg white(less or more depending upon the consistency of the mixture). The concoction should be thick enough to slather on face and it shouldn’t drip. Apply it to your face and relax for about 30 minutes till it dries completely. Wash off to see the radiant you! Apply the regular moisturizer after that and you are ready to go.

Along with the benefits of chocolate, the egg white in this mask will help tighten your skin to erase the fine lines and also improve the skin tone.

I had a splendid experience indulging in this chocolate face pack.

Experience it, to believe it 🙂

Don’t forget to share your experience!

 

 

Make the cut almond way

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 1.35.10 am

Enough of having square nails! Now, girls will have to swap their square shape for almond. Having almond nails is relatively a new thing and is again back with a bang in the ‘fashion forward world’ with many celebrities sporting and popularizing this look.

These nails are bold (although less bold than a stiletto nail which snags our tights and lace dresses frequently); longer, sharper, crispier and edgier.

These nails give a very lady-like look and add a feminine flare to your looks. Not only that! It has a trickier side to it as well. Almond shape creates an illusion of longer fingers. Therefore, becoming one of the terrific shapes for girls with short fingers and smaller hands.

So if you are thinking to get your nails file in almond shape the next time you visit your saloon, I would say, “way to go, girl!”

Mattify it!

24-1

Getting worried about your facial skin looking greasy, shiny like a frying pan? Not anymore! Now you can have a perfect matt and grease free skin at the ease of your home. Try my DIY 3 in 1 facial mask which also serves as a face scrub and a face wash. This can be the best treatment at your rescue for oily skin with blackheads.

RICE MASK

Ever wondered that rice can serve as potent for your skin? It helps absorb excess oil from the skin. Its other added benefits are: – it aids in getting soother and softer skin, reduce fine lines and blemishes, even out skin tone and reduce inflammation. It is a much over-looked skin care product that can even rival the best commercial products.

INGREDIENTS

RICE POWDER

OAT POWDER

EGG WHITE

HONEY

LEMON JUICE/ROSE WATER

Keep grinded rice and oat powder in an equal quantity in a container. So that every time you apply the mask, you won’t have to grind it again and again. Mix all the ingredients together in such a proportion that you get a smooth paste. Apply it on your face and leave for 15-20 minutes. Lightly scrub it off when it dries and wash off. I would suggest applying this luxurious face pack every night before going to bed as a substitute of face wash followed by a nice oil free moisturizer or a gel.

See the difference yourself! 🙂

Get your feet sandal ready…!

21-1

Summers have approached and you need to wear strappy sandals and peep toes. But you have undone nails, roughness and dryness on and around the toes? Your toes may not be on show yet… but they soon will be!

Take yourself off and get them sorted with these tips and tricks in the comfort of your own home to make your feet looking great in summer sandals:

OIL UP

massage your feet and toe nails every time you get out of the shower with any oil (be it almond oil, olive oil or coconut oil)

21-2

BRUSH UP

slightly brush up your feet and specially toe nails with a fresh lemon ring every time after you remove your old nail polish. This way, you will get rid of yellow toe nails caused by prolonged application of nail paint.

21-3

SOAK UP

we all know Cleopatra’s most well known beauty secret is her milk bath! Milk removes hardened skin and lactic acid in the milk lightens the skin. Soak your feet in milk or if you want to avoid wastage, you can dip a cotton ball into milk and apply onto your feet.

21-4

EXFOLIATE

scrub your feet at least twice a week with a pumice stone. This will remove the dead skin traces and dryness from your feet to reveal softer skin.

21-5

OVERNIGHT TREATMENT

put some foot cream or oil on your feet at night before going to bed and wrap your feet with a plastic and fasten them with a rubber band (not too tight though) and enclose them in cotton socks for the whole night. This will definitely leave your feet feeling smoother and softer than ever before. Do this once in a week and Voila! You are ready to go tip toe.

21-6

POLISH THEM UP

Okay! I agree, this isn’t good for your nails, but at least they make your feet look awesome! Use some bright colors. Bright colors catch more attention and make you really stand out.

21-7

NOTE: – Don’t forget to trim and file your nails on daily basis. After all, no one loves claw-like nails peeping out your sandals! And cut them straight across instead of giving them a curve shape because curved nails will increase the risk of painful ingrown toenails.

That’s all folks!

Now you won’t be embarrassed to show your feet off in sandals to the world 🙂

Zip zap those pimple scars…

Have acne scars left behind? Don’t panic…because you need to know that your scars will fade away on their own after several months! But there are few of my home remedies which you can try to post-haste the process of scar reduction. Don’t be in a haste to get rid of stubborn acne scars. Obviously, you won’t be able to eradicate them in a jiffy, but these remedies will certainly show a noticeable difference over time with continuous application. So, today I will bring to you three of my useful tips to get rid of acne scars naturally and get a healthy, glowing and clear skin with ease.

LEMON AND HONEY

Lemon juice has skin lightening properties in it which reduces scars and other blemishes whereas, honey is anti bacterial and helps to soothe skin and reduce redness. Combine equal parts of lemon juice and honey and apply the mixture onto the scars on your face. Wash it off after 30 minutes. Follow up by using a good moisturizer or a vitch hazel cream which is very effective for pimples and you can easily get it from any homeopathy store around you.

19-1

ALOE VERA GEL AND TEA TREE OIL

Aloe Vera gel is used to cure acne scars and heal burnt skin naturally and tea tree oil promotes clear skin. A concoction of both in equal parts can help to erase tough acne marks substantially over time. You can even use this mixture as a substitute of moisturizer to obtain a supple and clear skin naturally.

19-2

GREEN TEA AND CUCUMBER JUICE

Now, this one’s the best natural scar treatment which I have been using for some time now. Many people use ice cubes to get rid of scars and inflammation. I would go a step further and recommend you to use green tea and cucumber juice on your face in a solid form.

Take two parts of green tea and one part of cucumber juice and freeze it in the form of cubes. Take each cube every day and rub onto your face for around five minutes. Leave it on as it is and let it completely dry. Wash your face after that or for more effective results leave it as it is and work your face as usual.

This is best suited for people with super sensitive skin.

Note: Make sure you use a muslin cotton cloth and don’t apply cubes directly onto your face.

19-3

OLIVE OIL

Olive oil is a kind of miracle oil. It has a lot of moisturizing properties. Along with that, it has the ability to reduce the prominence of acne scars. Massage olive oil daily onto your skin at night before going to bed to get a clear looking skin. It will also help you to do away with wrinkles and dry skin and will act as a night cream for you. So, be ready to substitute your night creams for this miracle oil…

Note: Use olive oil only if you have dry skin. Don’t use it if you have pimples. Though, it can be used on pimple scars to fade them eventually over time.

19-4

In the end, drink plenty of waters and have a healthy diet by including lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet because what you eat is what shows on your skin is a very true saying at least for me..!

 Happy Weekend Divas!

Lupita Nyong’o – epitome of beauty, who has changed the standard of beauty…

17-1

She is as dark as night, chiseled face beauty, with sharp features, high cheekbones…Yes, you are right! I am talking about none other than Lupita Nyong’o, the Oscar winning actress, who has set different standards of beauty, through her tough yet confident looks. Beauty has always been “being fair and light skin color”…unless Lupita came into the scene. This black beauty…”black” in literal terms, has made everyone proud and become an inspiration for all the black girls.

Passion…Passion for you and people around you is the true parameter and essence of beauty. Beauty is being you, being your inner self, being generous, being confident in your own skin…which scores high and not the skin tone because all will fade after a while and only the soul shall be remembered.

Dare to dream…Life has not finished if you are black! …It’s the beginning of new life with a challenge to prove, ‘there is no shade in beauty’. Watch this beautiful video, the speech, which literally swept me off my floor. Incredible is the word for it! A must watch!!
