A summer's day out may sound somewhat scary, given the extreme heat, but if you have the right company and the perfect protection, nothing can be compared to a summer picnic or a day out. Apart from a sun-protection you also need something that can give you that lovely glow. So today, I am going to review the Fair & Lovely BB Cream and creating a unique look with it.

About Fair & Lovely BB Cream:
The new Fair and Lovely BB Cream brings the expertise and magic of foundation and multivitamin fairness cream in a single tube. The BB cream succeeds in coverage of spots and blemishes for a matte and even skin tone. For an instant make-up finish and fairer skin tone, this handy tube is a perfect buy. 

My Third Week of Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge

As I am in my third week of Gillette venus #SubscribeToSmooth challenge, I can definitely say, I have not done any wrong. In fact I should have opted for this easy method of hair removal long back. It is easy, hassle-free, as I had discussed in my last post, does not make my skin rough or dry, and obviously not at all messy, compared to the other methods.

So, I am here with my experience for the 3rd week, which again I wanted to share during the weekend but unfortunately could not due to lack of time. So, today, although its too late now, I just cannot hold myself to share my 3 rd week of the Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth challenge. Long back a portion of my skin was left darkened due to the use of very hot wax. Since then I have a feeling that any kind of hair removal process may leave me with uneven skin tone.

Experience #NioxinNowInIndia for a Scalp Facial

Last Saturday had been a whirlwind of happenings for me. I attended back to back events, and frankly all I needed at the end of the day was a  nice head massage. It ended exactly that way. Read to know how. Few of the bloggers were selected from Blogadda to attend an event about Nioxin, at Nalini's & Yasmin Salon, Bandra.

We were greeted and introduced very warmly by Natasha from Nalini & Yasmin salon and Harsh from Wella. They introduced us with the brand Nioxin and made us aware of all the good things that the 3-step system is capable of. Incidentally, Nioxin is a brand addressing the issues of hair thinning. It works as a super cleanser for the scalp and makes each hair strand voluminous. This process gives the hair thickness and vitality. In short, like our face requires a facial, so does our scalp and Nioxin is here to give a Scalp Facial.

The session started with the Axis Bank Corporate Communications Team introducing us to the PingPay App. It is always great to know about Apps that would make a boring thing like banking to be interesting and fun.

2nd Week of My Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge

Last week I had taken up the Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge and was very excited to come back with my experience for the 2nd week. However, with back to back events, the entire weekend, I had literally no time left to share my experience for the 1st week on time. So today, I have decided to tell you about my journey of 1 week with the Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth Challenge.

How many of you believe shaving is dreadful for dry skin? Well, I did. I have a very dry body skin, and I used to think, what if I ended up getting my hand or legs drier in the process of shaving! So, yes in the process of taking up the #SubscribeToSmooth challenge I was a bit nervous. But now, I thank myself for gathering up my courage in taking up this challenge.

#ChocolatyTreat & Giveaway(Closed)

My chocolate craving has really reached such a magnitude that I am indulging in it in ...well..all possible forms. And I will share with you the recent form of chocolaty extravaganza I am going through. Although there are more chocolaty things in my bath nowadays, I preferred to select 3.

A chocolate scrub sounds absolutely incredible, not only because you will end up smelling like molten chocolate, but also because it is great for the skin. The Puro Body & Soul Chocolate Vanilla Body Scrub does the exact trick. I like the sweet blend of milk chocolate & vanilla and the softness it provides to the skin. 

Summer Fashion for Kids in 2015

The fashion world has somewhat been cruel to the kids. Very little attention has been given to micro fashion, unless and until the inception of the 21st century. Kids now a day are bombarded with options when it comes to choosing their apparels. Be it their party attires, or something they would love to wear on a daily basis, the options are varied and quite attractive too. They have all the potential to give grown up clothes a run for a place on the shelves.

Summer clothes for kids:
With the summer sun, rising to the top of the sky, special attention needs to be laid to the kind of clothes you want your kids to be wearing this summer 2015. One of the greatest priorities when buying clothes is that they should be good to look at. Then again, there are other very many factors as well that should be given higher importance when choosing clothes for kids, especially for the summers. Some of these factors include-
·         Buy apparels made from cotton or linen. These materials are light on the skin.
·         Buy clothes that are comfortable. You do not want the clothes to be sticking to the kid and him feeling uncomfortable after a sweaty game of soccer.
·         Buy clothes that allow natural aeration.
·         Finally, Buy clothes that are light on the eye. Darker shades may increase the heat felt.

Tips by Dr. Jamuna Pai for Teenage Skin Care

Teenage years are always angst ridden and confusing for everyone. It is not just the mind that is undergoing changes but the body too. These changes reflect on the skin as well. Sometimes it is these physical changes that cause more anxiety to the teenager than anything else. And understandably so. From out-of-the-blue breakouts to body odor, to unwanted body and facial hair, the problems are many. 

Teenagers are particularly prone to acne because levels of hormones (known as androgens) increase at puberty.These hormones cause an increase in the size of the sebaceous glands and the amount of oil they produce. You can not get rid of it once and for all, but yes you can surely keep it under check and prevent the recurrence.
