Hope all of you are doing great & not troubled by acne like me lol. But if you are dont worry i have just the thing that might bring you some relief.​ I was breaking out like crazy since last couple of weeks. My skin acts crazy mostly in the rainy season i don`t know if its the humidity or something else. I tried everything salicylic acid facewashes.. nothing was working untill i invented this facemask. It worked like a miracle for me so i thought of sharing it with you guys too.

Acne/ Pimples is such a common problem. We all have suffered from it at some point of time. It may be caused by various issues:
~~Hormones
~~Stress
~~Infection & Allergies
~~Pollution
~~Bad food habbits
But the good news is acne is quite curable. I try a lot of home remedies passed on to me by my mother & grandmother. This mask is really helpful if you are having really bad acne breakouts. All the ingredents work in such a way that it cures the root problem.

  • Neem: Antibacterial & antifungal (kills infection)
  • Activated carbon: Cleanses the pores it literally pulls out the dirt & do a deep cleaning. Hence,prevents balckheads/whiteheads & acne too from coming.
  • Multhani Mitti/Fullers Earth: Very helpful to control the oil.It is rich in Magnesium phosphate that helps in reducing acne too. Plus it has a cooling effect on skin. Cancels the tingling sensation from Apple Cider Vinegar.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: It is rich in Alhpa Hyroxy Acids, that helps in removal of the dead skin. Hence gives a fresh rejuvinated skin with regular use. Doesn`t let the pore clogged away. Reduces pore size.

How to make Rakhi at Home/DIY Rakhi

Love of a brother & sister is one of the deepest most purest form of love. You may argue.. you may fight but its always the two of you against the world. Raksha Bandhan for this reason is very close to my heart I have very fond childhood memories associated with this festival.

Since my brother doesn’t like to wear the Rakhi from market. He says it’s uncomfortable to wear. I always DIY his Rakhi from scratch with soft materials that are comfortable to wear:
This year I am doing a series on DIY Rakhi. I have made these Rakhi without the  Hot Glue Gun & other fancy stuff. Mostly used stuff that was already at my home. Get creative & all items are between Rs 2 – Rs. 20

Let`s see what all we need:
1. Soft Yarn/ Thread- To tie the Rakhi
2. Beads of your choice – I had a broken latkan bead you can get this in the price range of Rs.5-Rs.20
3. Fancy Buttons – you can get easily in the price range of Rs.2- Rs.10)
4. Fevicol – It hardens the ends of the thread makes it easier to get through the bead works just like a needle)
5. Kitchen Fork – To make small pompom from the yarn
6. Scissors

Check out my detailed videos on How to make these Amazingly simple yet pretty looking Rakhi

BEAUTY FORMULAS Cranberry Moisturising Hand Cream- Review

Hey Guys!

It was few days back ,we were shopping at the nearest mall just to grab few essentials since the season is changing so is the skin care needs. At NewU billing counter this BEAUTY FORMULAS Hand cream grabbed my attention (I don`t know if it’s a sells strategy at NewU, I always end up tossing few more items in my cart from the countertop specially the handy travel size ones & I am not complaining these are really useful ones…Good job guys!!)

I wash my hands several times in a day (Sometimes I wonder if I have hand washing OCD :P) also dry weather adds on to it …makes my hand rough & I need to keep re-applying some hand lotion to keep them soft & supple.  So, I am always on a good hand cream hunt.

BEAUTY FORMULAS Cranberry Moisturising Hand Cream Review theweekendcloset6BEAUTY FORMULAS Cranberry Moisturising Hand Cream Review theweekendcloset 6

This has become my favourite now & I always carry in my bag. It is formulated to deeply nourish your dry hands. The non-greasy formula gets easily absorbed, leaving your hands feeling soft, smooth and supple.

Pros:

  • Comes in a vibrant small travel size tube.
  • The formula is Non greasy which is very important buttery hands can be very annoying. (everything just slipping out of your hands)
  • Instantly gets absorbed as you rub it into skin leaving your hands Soft, Supple & Smooth.
  • Shelf life of 12 Months.
  • Travel friendly packaging.
  • Pleasant sweet fragrance of cranberry.
  • Priced at Rs.199 for 30 ml tube .

Cons:

  • The moisturizing effect is not long-lasting once you wash your hands you need to reapply but i am not complaining for this price can`t expect more.
  • Not available online. You need to hunt it from the nearest NewU store.

Also available in Amber and Rose fragrances.I like fruity scents so I choose the Cranberry. Let us know if you tried any of the other two variant.. We love to hear from you!
