Know All About Gillette Venus "Use Your And" Campaign with Review

Gillette Venus has been my sole preferred brand from the time it was first launched. A few days back they have initiated a campaign called "Use Your And" dedicated to us, women who have been labelled for years. This incredible Campaign inspires us to show the world how we can break the barriers of the stereotyped tags. It is motivational and a must to watch for all. 

The "Use Your And" Campaign shows us how we are much more than the world has tagged us to be. The world can bind our versatility and power to certain limits by use of "Ors" but we should be strong enough to show them how to replace the "Or"s with "And"s. Why are we limited to one particular trait? Why are girls made to learn only household chores from their childhood? Why cannot they left free to play out with the boys? Why do we tag our mothers to be only an excellent cook? They have other qualities that should be spoken about...some may be a good singer, some an excellent artist and some may have mastered the art of dancing. We all have many traits more than the world has been knowing us for. It is time we show the world those traits and start using our Ands.

Amazing tips and tricks for acne treatment and care

A few simple tips and tricks of acne treatments to get relieved from the irritating pimples. Flaunt a rejuvenated and smooth skin with the best acne treatments.

Everybody knows someone who will cringe at the very sound of the word ‘acne’. Usually beginning during one’s teenage, acne breakouts may naturally stop by the age of twenty or they may have one trying to find remedies for pimples even beyond fifty years of age. However, acne treatment is not rocket science. Here are a few simple guidelines to help you keep acne breakouts away.

Keeping the affected area, most commonly the face, clean and oil-free is the first step towards avoiding acne breakouts. Washing the area twice or thrice a day with gentle, natural and oil-free soap and then dabbing it dry helps remove dead skin and unclogs pores. This helps acne treatment by keeping infections at bay. Makeup may cause acne breakouts too. If it must be used, it should be water-based and fresh since old makeup may harbor bacteria. It should also be washed off before going to bed since makeup only contributes to clogged pores, increasing chances of having acne breakouts. Cosmetic brushes should be regularly cleaned with soapy water to avoid the growth of bacteria on them. These are some simple ways of how to remove acne scars too.

My Hair Woes & Initial View of the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner

My Hair Story
My hair is a constant source of despair and tension for me. No matter how much I take care and how cautious I am to keep it protected, it just will not be tamed. You name any kind of hair problem and I will be a living example of all, barring dandruff. 

I have never been blessed with the best of hair. However, it was much better a few years back, than what is right now. I do not dream for a Rapunzel mane, however, it would be great if I at least get rid of the annoying frizziness, the monotonous dullness and above all, the hairfall that almost resembles Autumn Leaves Fall.

The Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Shampoo and Conditioner Happy Hair Challenge:

Me, My Skin & Acne

Being a beauty blogger, I have to maintain a strict skin care regime. Sometimes it is quite difficult as I require to test so many beauty products on the skin. Some of these skin care products may not be suitable for the skin and can actually give rise to some issues. At times I get whiteheads or rashes. And sometimes I may get pimples. This is the most difficult part of being a beauty blogger.

While testing a new product I make it sure that I read the ingredient list and try to figure out if there are any ingredient that may cause adverse effect on the skin. But it is not always possible to keep a check on the hidden ingredients that a product is made of. And often too much change in skin care products may lead to skin reaction, leading to the form of pimples.
