Hi people! Winters have finally made up their mind to bid adieu, and I am relieved. I know I know, so many of you love winters, but I’m more of a tropical person. 😀 Nevertheless winter has its pros – lush fresh veggies – I love them. But the winter this time has been harsh on my skin. I got dry patches on my arms, that felt rough and bumpy to touch, near shoulders and I was in a state of shock, having incurred them the first time ever. Living in a warm, humid climate almost made me so-not-used-to so much dryness. This time however, it was testing. 😐
I did some research to identify the causes behind my skin conditions. I needed to find them because I needed to combat the dry patches at the earliest possible, as they were getting uncomfortable day by day.
Following could have been the reasons behind the rough, patchy dryness (any or all could apply) :
Taking hot showers frequently
Pores getting clogged from silicones in moisturizers
Hey everyone! Hope you enjoyed the long weekend. 🙂 Well I sure had an eventful Sunday that I shared with you in my Sunday Diaries. Caught up with the long-awaited Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion and did some store hopping at the Quest Mall. In my previous post I was talking about the amazing gifting options at the Kama Ayurveda boutique. So it was only natural that I picked up one myself. 😛
The gift box that I picked up has “signature essentials for women”, with a very pretty floral theme. The box itself looks absolutely feminine and sophisticated. I must say I love the way this box looks, so it was rather tempting to click some pictures. 🙂 You don’t have to deal with a lot of mindful rambling in this post, just plain pictures and a little information. 😀 So go ahead, check out the snaps. If you’ve not yet been to any store of Kama, hopefully you will get an idea of their extensive gifting options too!
So I had left off after the review of the mighty Bahubali 2. But as I said, the day was eventful. 😀 Here is the rest of the diary.
THE REST OF THE DAY AT QUEST MALL :
After the marvel of Baahubali 2, it was time for me to hop around a bit. MAChas three new collections this month – the Lip Scrubtious, Work It Out and Colour Rocker. I did want to try out a few of the shades from the Colour Rocker range, but unfortunately they had run out of stock of the shades that I was looking for. I also wanted to play around with some of the colored mascaras (oh yes, they are exciting!) in MAC’s Work It Out collection, but again the shades I was keen on trying had been swept off the store. And coming to the Lip Scrubtious, I really wanted to take a whiff of those yummilicious flavored lip scrubs before I made up my mind on one. 😀 Read more
Hi everyone! The weather grows harsher with passing days. My city is experiencing a maximum temperature of 33 degrees at the moment, and it’s only going to increase as April dawns in. Time that we start keeping our bodies well hydrated and take good care of our skin and hair. I have the Kama Ayurveda Pure Rosewater for review in this post today. 🙂
Product Description :
A wonderful Rose water that is made from the roses of Kannauj – a region in North India, rich in white soil conductive to roses’ growth. The Kannauj rose is considered special due to its similarity to the Bulgarian rose. The steam distillation process used to create this water ensures a high level of hygiene and unmatched purity. Rose water is a natural astringent that balances and restores skin’s PH level, helps tighten pores and acts as the perfect alcohol-free toner for oily or acne-prone skin. Its light cleansing and clarifying action helps in removing cleanser residue while readying the skin for further skincare treatment. A refreshing spritz that can be used to refresh the skin at any time of the day.
The Kama Ayurveda Pure Rosewater is available on Kama’s website, Nykaa and Amazon. The price is INR 250 for 50ml of pure bliss. 🙂 There is a larger version of 200ml at INR 950, but I prefer the smaller bottle for the ease of carrying around. Read more
Hi everyone! March is behaving quite weird in my city. At times it rains and at times it doesn’t. Sometimes it’s wee bit chilly and at others, quite warm. No I don’t need wear sweaters though. They are all packed up and shoved in for the next winter. 🙂 Amidst all this, my skin gets confused too, can’t blame it anyway. At times my cheeks feel so dry like in the colder months, while at others my T-zone tends to get oily, with my pores prone to clogging. Thus it becomes imperative that I take good care of my skin at this time. Exfoliation is the key to keep those ugly heads at bay. And today I have the much loved Kama Ayurveda Kumkumadi Brightening Face Scrub for review in my post.
