Posted on Updated on

Old flames, first love and all that valentine’s nostalgia. Regardless of your relationship status, love is for everyone and is the perfect reason to celebrate everything that makes you happy – including the way you look!
On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, Chandrika Mahendra, Principal Scientist, R&D, The Himalaya Drug Company shares a few interesting ideas to help you celebrate beauty with love.

Wear a Natural Smile – A natural lip balm with a tint of red for soft, supple and shiny lips is sure to lift your mood up.

V-Day Tip: A DIY scrub early morning with almond oil and sugar crystals will ensure your lips are smooth and supple throughout the day.

Pure Skin Facial – A regular routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing (CTM) will remove impurities like dust and pollution. Use a gentle scrub to exfoliate dead skin, blackheads and clogged pores. Follow it up with a moisturizing face pack to reveal pure and soft skin and then get ready with a fresh face after that facewash.

V-Day Tip: Remove the face pack after 10 minutes to retain your skin’s natural moisture.

Bring Hair Alive – Try a DIY home spa, a day before Valentine’s Day. Massage your scalp with a herbal hair oil followed by a warm towel wrap. It helps the oil penetrate deeper into your hair for extra nourishment. Wash your hair with herbal shampoo and conditioner to remove the oil. End this routine with herbal hair cream on your scalp and strands of your hair. Massage gently and wash it off after 15 minutes.

V-Day Tip: Moisturize your strands with a herbal detangler. It will add shine and smoothness to rough and brittle hair.

Define your eyes naturally – Keep your eyes hydrated with a herbal kajal. Apply it gently on your eyelid for bright and attractive eyes.

V-Day Tip: Dust some powder under your eye skin before applying the Kajal, it helps in absorbing excess oil.

The Purest Feeling – You wouldn’t want flaky skin to upset your mood. Use a creamy lotion to moisturize your skin from head to toe.

V-Day Tip: Treat your skin to a luxurious body lotion immediately after bathing. Your skin will absorb the lotion faster and stay moisturized for long.

Sparkling Smile – Nothing can beat a sparkling white smile, especially on occasions like this. It showcases confidence, positive attitude and happiness.

V-Day Tip: A non-chemical bleach toothpaste with natural enzymes will help you get whiter teeth. Enzymes present in Papaya called papain and in Pineapple called bromelain act as mild whitening agents that safely remove stains, making them sparkling white.

Compliment your perfect look with a fresh floral scent. The fragrance is sure to make your moment perfect!

Black is such a happy colour, Isn’t it?

Posted on Updated on

Hello friends! Diwali, the festival of light has just happened to end but I still seem to be in the festive mode. And why not as Christmas and New years are round the corner. Also I am bit excited and nervous at the same time, as I update my first ever outfit post. I am the most camera-shy person ever, but being a fashion/beauty blogger you really need to experiment a lot with your blog as well as your look. So for my first outfit post, I choose the colour BLACK. As the colour black stands for being ‘classy’ and ‘elegant’ at the same time and also I believe in ‘minimal chic’, so I kept the whole look really simple, with a minimal makeup and nude lips. Used a MAC nude lip gloss just to add a little shine to my lips. I accessorized the look with my most favourite and priced possession Jimmy Choo ‘Candy-Glitter’ Clutch and a watch. Also I opted for flats in place of heels to keep it comfortable and an on-the-go day and night look (Also seen me wearing the look here)

What I am wearing: Knee length tunic and black bottoms – Zara / Flats – Charles & Keith / Watch – Rado / Clutch – Jimmy Choo / On my Nails – Maybelline India ‘Glitter Mania’ Starry Nights / On my Lips – Mac Lipglass ‘London Wik 3BQ’
