Happy Halloween to All-From the Desi Corpse Bride

 I am a bride, I love red
I was happy the day I was going to wed
My parents had so much tears to shed
My groom hated me and he fled
I cried the whole night on the bed
Next morning they found me lying dead
Today I am still the bride and I love red

Indian women consistently suffer skin damage due to lack of moisture: Vaseline Survey

Mumbai, 16 October, 2014: Vaseline conducted a survey to understand the skin moisturization rituals of women across India. The survey shows that although Indian women are aware that regular moisturization reduces skin damage and early aging they still do not do it consistently.


According to the survey, 31% Indians do not use a body moisturizer at all, despite of a majority [75%] of them being aware of the fact that lack of moisture can lead to unhealthy skin, lacking in glow and lustre. This ignorance about dryness leading to skin damage is highest in the east at 40% followed by the south and west each at 25%. 

Dr. Aparna Santhanam, Hindustan Unilever Skin Expert says, “Dry skin is a common problem among Indian women that results from inadequate hydration and moisture in the upper layers of the skin. It causes unwanted damage like dull and flaky looking skin, rough patches and bumps and in extreme cases, nicks, cuts and cracks. This causes the skin to appear lifeless and completely lacking in suppleness and glow. We usually feel that we need to moisturize only during winter or when our skin visibly looks and feels rough and dry. This is not true. Moisturizing is a continuous maintenance process for the skin. Keeping skin adequately hydrated on an everyday basis is one of the most important and easiest ways to add glow and health to the skin”
