I am not too fond of summers. The heat and perspiration give me acne breakouts that are painful and often leave behind ugly blemishes. Now, I use Cetaphil face wash religiously. It has worked wonders for my skin. But, when it comes to using face packs and face masks, I like to whip them up in my kitchen with natural ingredients.
Mira by Radhika Jain, a versatile designer from Kolkata exhibited a magnificent jewellery line at Lakme Fashion Week, Mumbai. The theme for the collection was ‘Jardin d’Eden’ (Garden of Eden), which featured an array of bespoke pieces – from stunning pendants to precious-stone necklaces, and from signature bracelets to earrings, making it perfect for any occasion. The designer used hand-crafted fibers with metallic elements and like the original Garden of Eden, it aims to be guilty pleasures of every woman.
I have always been overprotective about my lips during winters. My lips have a tendency to get overtly chapped, which leads to frequent bleeding and pain. I have been using Vaseline to guard my lips since school days; however, in the last few years, I have used Nivea chap sticks and Maybelline lip balms – these are good products, but are not natural. Once I stopped using these, my lips got drier, which made me apply in double proportions. Not a great thing, eh?

I experienced Gold Facial for the very first time before my wedding. It was part of my pre-bridal beauty regimen. I loved it; it left a shimmery glow on my face for good 2 weeks; and my skin felt supple and super-soft. However, gold facial doesn’t come easy on the pocket; it’s amazing and even more expensive. But worry not because you can do it yourself, in the comfort of your home. Happy? I bet you are! This facial is good for any skin type. It gets rid of toxins, sunburn and acts as a great anti-ageing catalyst. It also makes skin elasticity a lot better. So get read to pamper your skin.
