What helped me to treat dry patches on skin

Dry, Rough Patches on Skin? This is how I Treated them…

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
  • Dehydration
  • Constant friction of skin with woolens

Plum Chamomile and White Tea Calming Anti-oxidant Toner

Plum Chamomile & White Tea Calming Antioxidant Toner : Review

Hi people! How you all doin’? Winter is paving way to the spring, and I’m elated! Winters call for a change in my skincare routine, and this year winter has been harsh. So I was really having trouble with my skin, and tried using as many organic products as I could to help my skin cope up with the dryness.

A major switch was in the toner, and I started using the Plum Chamomile and White Tea Calming Anti-oxidant Toner. I had been religiously using the toner for type 3 skin from Clinique that worked great in extreme humidity, but the drier months needed something gentler. Hence cult-favorite, vegan, chemical-free Plum. 🙂

Mond'Sub Gold Facial Mask

Sheet Mask Chronicles : Mond’Sub Gold Facial Mask (Crystal Collagen Mask Series) – Review

Heylo my lovely readers! The chilly weather has subdued wee bit on its glory, but I’m lazy as ever. 😛 However I do realize the importance of feeding my skin right to help with its dull, stretchy feeling. The weather is not being kind to my skin or hairs, so these need to be really taken care of.

Thank goodness for sheet masks, my skincare routine winds up easy. So one lazy day, when my skin was behaving weird (well it does on most days 😛 ), I picked up the Mond’sub Gold Facial Mask from my stash. Read on for my experience with the product. 🙂

My Experience with the Mond’sub Gold Collagen Mask :

Mond'Sub Gold Facial Mask

Now this is very different from regular sheet masks, right from the packaging to usage. This mask is a part of Mond’sub’s Crystal Collagen Mask Series. It comes in a sturdy plastic frame, carved out to accommodate the mask and the serum. The outer package as well as the mask is golden in color. Everything you need to know about the mask – the ingredients, about, usage and manufacture are clearly printed on the back of the package. I love it when brands come out clear with information. So certainly kudos to Mond’sub in that aspect. Read more

Aroma Essentials Rose Body Butter

Aroma Essentials Rose Body Butter : Pure Nourishing Goodness for the Skin – My Experience and Review

Hi everyone! Did you start your year with a bang? Or are you still reminiscing in the glories of 2017? Whatever it is, winters are here to rule still a few weeks and I’m basking in my stash of body moisturizers. 😛

I’m a huge…umm…die-hard? Fan of body butters, and nothing delights me more than a handcrafted one. And the one with an amazing fragrance (it takes a good deal to convince a TBS body butter fanatic on the fragrance part). And of course it should relieve my skin of all its dryness, and make it plump and soft. A product that does all of these? The Aroma Essentials Rose Body Butter. Goodness, I love it so much.
