7 Simple Skincare Resolutions for 2017!

Before I start, I want to wish all of you a very
"Happy New Year"

Every year we make a few resolution and by the end of the year, we are either following 1 or 2 or maybe none. The year 2016, taught me a lot about my skin and so I though of sharing a few of my resolutions with you guys because I'm sure we want to give that love to that skin!

Let's welcome 2017 with these 7 simple skincare resolutions! 


I can't stress enough on this point! We have all heard it but still tend to avoid it. In 2016, my skin went through a lot of issues and I have been on medication for the past 4 months, but one think that really changed the game for me was WATER. Because of my skin condition I was compelled to drink at least 4 litres if water each and every day. I know it a lot but you should have a minimum of 2 litre each day and you'll see the difference with a week.

2. Remove Your Makeup

Makeup can clog your pore and you don't want to sleep with clogged pore and wake up with a ginormous pimple. It's always good to sleep with clean skin. So a makeup remover is always a good option but sometimes we are lazy and that's when makeup removing wipes come in handy!

3. CTM - Cleanse -- Tone -- Moisturise

Spending sometime with your skin is essential. Just removing makeup is not all, use a good face cleanser to get rid of that stubborn makeup that dint come off with your makeup remover. Now I know most people say that a toner is important but not everyone needs a toner, this is what my Dermatologist taught me! And next, the crucial one, MOISTURISE, who doesn't what soft supple skin! Give back to your skin, use a good moisturizer and be gentle.

4. Exfoliate

This is something I have always loved doing. EXFOLIATION helps get rid of those dead cell and help your skin breathe. But, don't over do it! Also for this one, make sure you consult your Dermatologist because not everyone needs it.

5. Sunscreen

Another thing that I only used when I was on a vacation or if I would be out in direct sunlight. A SUNSCREEN is super duper essential. Whatever the weather maybe, even if you sit at home or work inside your office, you need sunscreen. It's going to help you in the long run and help prevent freckles and also wrinkles!

6. Don't just take care of your Face.... Your body is equally important!

We tend to take a lot of care of our facial skin but what about our body. Most of use become lazy to apply a moisturiser to our body or exfoliate it. Our body also need some love, so pamper it as much as you can.

7. Make at least one trip to your Dermatologist in a year!

I have dealt with skin issues since my childhood and one thing that I have realised in these years is, we can't solve all are skin issues with home remedies or by searching on google! We all need a professional telling using our skin's needs!

DIY Lip Scrub for Soft Kissable Lips

Hello Loves,

I hope this festive season brought you loads and loads of happiness. I had a lot of fun this Diwali because I was visiting Hampi, a place that I had always dreamt about visiting since about 7-8 years and I must say, it was mesmerizing.

But the crazy hot weather took a toll on my skin and my lips were most affected by it. They chapped like no one's business. The funny thing was, I had to eat non-spicy food because spicy food would literally burn my lips.

Now that I'm back, I started using this scrub and saw a difference within 2 days. My lips tend to get chapped in extreme hot and cold weather and that's what happened.

Since winter is approaching, I thought of using this DIY with you guys.


2 tablespoons of Granulated Sugar (from a local grocery shop)

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1 tablespoon Honey

How to make this DIY Scrub ?

Step 1

Pour 2 tablespoons of Granulated Sugar in a bowl.

Step 2

Add 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil, I have used Soulflower Olive Oil and 1 ½ tablespoons of Honey, I have used Dabur Honey.

Step 3

Mix all the ingredients really well, till the mixture becomes gooey. If needed add more olive oil or honey to get it to the right consistency.

You can store this scrub for upto a week (preferably refrigerate it).

Just scrub your lips with this for 30-40 seconds (don't be harsh) and wash it off. Follow it up with a thick layer of any lipbalm of your choice, I personally slather on some Boroline and
Voila! you are done!

Wake up with super soft kissable lips!

(A big Thank You to my mom for helping me shoot for this post.)
Do let me know if this scrub worked for you!

Plum Green Tea Clear Face Pack
I have become a massive fan of anything with green tea; you’d get to know about my obsession in a few days because I have been using a lot of products that have green tea extracts. Thought I’m not a fan of drinking green tea, I love products infused with green tea.
The Plum Green Tea Face Mask is truly a savior. It has worked wonders for my acne. I use it all over my face and some times when I feel lazy, I just use it as a spot treatment but leave it on for a little longer than normal.
Ingredient List:
Aqua (Water), Bentonite, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerine, Fragrance, FDA Approved Colours, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycolic Acid, Kaolin, Phenoxyethanol
Rs. 475 for 60g, available here

It says that it is a clear face mask but it’s actually a creamy mask that applies just like any other clay mask. The first time I applied this mask, I felt a tingling sensation and was scared that it might react with my skin but nothing happened. It also has a cooling sensation which feels super nice especially in the summers. It takes around 10-15 minutes to completely dry up and it feels so tight that you cannot talk.
I did not see any major difference in my first use but after the second use, my acne had started to dry up. Because I was desperate to cure my acne, I used it thrice in a week (alternate days) and it did help in healing my acne.
I love the fragrance of it as it’s very fresh. As I mentioned above, other than Green Tea extracts, this mask also has Glycolic Acid and the goodness of natural clays Kaolin and Bentonite, which again are extremely good for some dealing with acne/ pimples.
Do comment below if you have tried it or would want to try it. Also let me know if you want me to review anything specific.

The Monsoon Nail Polish Edit!

Hello my lovely people,

I'm finally back from a mini refreshing vacation and have decided to do a lot of posts this August! I'm doing a happy dance since the past 3 days because 'AUGUST' is my favourite month as it's my BIRTHDAY MONTH !!! 

I was really confused what to post and I kept thinking & while I was getting my nail polish off last evening, an idea popped in my mind! I'm a nail polish hoarder & I hate it when my nails ain't painted. But sometimes it's necessary to let your nails breath.

Since it's monsoon in Mumbai, the weather is gloomy & dull and for me nail polish is a great way of add some colour to the dull life! I find painting my nails very relaxing, sometimes stressful also but would talk about that in another post.

So here are the lovely nail polishes that have made me happy during these rainy days....

Maybelline Color Show in 402 Blackcurrant Pop : If you are someone who isn't into bright shade but still want a colour that pops, this beautiful lilac shade is perfect to match this changing weather.

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in 420 Pacific Blue : You can never go wrong with this ocean colour shade. Just one stroke and you are good to go.

NYX Advanced Salon Formula Nail Polish in NPS 214 Creme Glitter : I swear by this copperish rose gold shade! It instantly dresses up your nails and can be worn with every outfit. 

Maybelline Color Show in 215 Keep - up - the - Flame : I love my classic red. Whatever season it maybe, I love my reds & this is the perfect bright reddish orange shade.

Do let me know which shades are you loving currently ??

Happy Friendship Day!

Going back to my childhood, Tom & Jerry was the first cartoon I loved and would watch all day long. I'm sure many of you have the same story!

It taught what a friend is like & what the phrase 'A friend in need is a friend indeed' actually meant. Though was Tom always after Jerry but they always helped each other, that's how friendship is!

So make sure to be there for your friend at all times. 
And thank you to you guys who have given me so much love.
