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.
This festive season gift your loved one more than just a bouquet of roses; instead, think of a luxe DIY rose petal scrub – handmade by you with love. Today, I will share an easy recipe to whip up a simple homemade rose petal scrub that is not just super great for your skin, but smells and feels great too. While sugar is known for its exfoliating qualities, essential oil and rose petals delicately moisturizes dry skin, leaving it soft and supple. So, let’s begin?
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?

My mother tried homeopathy on me for a while when I was younger, it didn’t really work wonders for me.
Are you a fellow damaged-hair victim? If yes, hi-five! I have been looking for this miraculous recipe to soothe my damaged, frizzy hair for a while now. Living in Delhi, no matter how healthy you eat and how often you wash your hair, pollution and water quality really gets to your skin and hair. With no exception, I have unknowingly fallen prey to this misery.
