Our human bodies are naturally build to detox the bad and absorb the good. But now a days since pollution has increased so much, and chemicals are used in everything like food, beauty products, our bodies require extra effort to get rid of these toxins. If you r body is not detoxifying then you will see dark circles, dullness, patchy skin clearly on your face and body. Acne is one of most horrible symptom of this.

Best way around is to use face mask, almost once every week and leave your skin in shade for next 24hours. Now a days we have so many varieties  of mask available like clay mask, sheet mask, creamier formulae etc. Buy Now

Charcoal for the skin: Benefits?

Charcoal is one of nature’s most active and powerful ingredients. It is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. Used internally in medical science and given to people who suffer from poisoning because it has the ability to absorb the poison and safely eliminate it from the body. Similarly for skin, Charcoal acts as a magnet, binding to the impurities, oil and dirt in your skin’s cells and drawing them out.

Below is a list of benefits that charcoal can have for your skin:

  • Absorbs Toxins
  • Removes excess oil & dirt, so best for oily skin
  • Open the skin pores and remove impurities
  • Removes tanning and combat signs of ageing
  • Removes blackheads
  • Soothes and brightens the skin
  • Anti-bacterial properties
  • Helps to fight Acne and minimizes large pores

What is Activated Charcoal ?

Activated charcoal is an odorless and tasteless powder. Derived from coconut shells, peat or wood, it is processed through high temperature to increase its ability as an absorbent. When you apply it on your skin, it functions like a magnet to draw out all the sebum and toxins from your skin, making it refreshed and clean.

Neemli’s Acivated charcoal facemask is an great example of this, which delivers unrivaled benefits to the skin.

Rejuvenate Skin DIY : Charcoal face mask

Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent non-toxic substance. It acts like a skin savior as it will draw oil, dirt, chemicals, toxins and impurities off and safely eliminate them when you rinse with water.This helps in opening the blocked pores of the skin which can then breathe newly and start rejuvenating. It helps to fight acne also.

Ingredients for mask: 

  1. 1 teaspoon of Activated Charcoal ( have Neemli Naturals)
  2. 1/2 teaspoon of Honey (have taken Dabur honey)
  3. 1 teaspoon of Rose Water/Water

All of us are familiar with the benefits of honey.It has antibacterial properties that work wonders for skin. Therefore, it’s a perfect addition to a face mask. It can also be used as a face wash that cleanses and softens your skin by retaining your skin’s oils.

maskPrepare

Directions to prepare mask:

  • Wash your face with luke warm water and pat it dry
  • Mix all the ingredients together with a spoon. Stir it well to leave no lumps
  • Apply a thin even layer all over your face.
  • Allow the mask to dry. If it starts to feel itchy or uncomfortable, wash it off immediately.
  • Wash off with water and gently pat dry your face. Dont scrub it, else it will leave marks on your face and also itching can happen.
  • Use this mask once every week & leave on skin for 15 mins for a rejuvenating effect.

direction

P.S:  Always do a skin test before applying anything on your body. This is to ensure you are not allergic to it and it will not harm your skin. Apply above mask to a small patch of skin like hand finger or wrist, let dry, wash off. Wait 24 hours to see if any redness occurs. If not, please use it on your skin with no tensions.

Make sure to use your daily moisturizer after using this to replenish your skin and start your skin detox !!

Skin remedy recipes || Anti Aging mask

This is my recipe for anti-aging skin. If your skin have already paled out, loosened and lost shine you can try the recipe for skin tightening and reviving of skin. Applying this oil mix serum will not only  help to give immense anti aging benefits but also improve the overall tone of your skin. It is perfect for all skin types all though, if you are prone to clogging, proceed cautiously-there is a chance this oil could be too rich and could cause breakouts..

Ingredients:
1)  7 drops Pomegranate oil
2) 2 drops carrot essential seed oil
3) 4 drops lavender oil
4) 3 drops of vitamin E
5) 1/2 tbsp Rose water
6) 1 dark glass bottle with leak proof lid
How to prepare:
  • For this recipe, you have to mix the above oils in quantity mentioned.Nothing more or less
  • You can mix it and store it in a bottle for  day, away from direct sunlight & cool place.
  • Now that you have it all done you can use it when ever required.

How to use:

  • Always do a skin test for products made, as mentioned in my previous blog. Wait for next 24hrs, to notice any irritation before using it on your face or skin.
  • Apply it all over the face with a cotton evenly and let it be for 10 minutes.
  • You can now wash your face with little warm water and dry it with soft towel.
  • Avoid going into the sun for next 10 hours, as it can reduce the impact. So my suggestion is to apply in nighttime.
  • Apply moisturizer if you feel dry.

Tips (important to remember)

We can also use this Carrot seed oil with other oils like cucumber juice, lemon juice/oil to prepare skin products for anti aging, fairness etc. Always remember to study & research on quantity to mix, just don’t assume and mix anything and apply it. It can leave adverse effects on your skin.

Recipe given above is my secret for glowing wonderful skin. Please leave your comments about how you like it and did it work for you !!

Best Moisturizing Summer creams for all day !!

Hello friends…here i am with my another product review for beauty product. Nwo a day you have scorching heat outside. People with oily skin always  have an issue with creams to be used, but even people like me with dry skin also face problem in Summer. Along with dryness, we also have to focus on SPF content in creams.

This time i planned to buy Olay Natural White Rich All-in-one Fairness Day Cream . Heard a lot about it in advertisements and also it has SPF content, so thought to try it and share my experience with you all.

About the product:

As per the content mentioned on the cover, it contains Triple nutrient system to nourish skin with the essential vitamins like B3, Pro-B5 and E  along with SPF 24 PA ++ . This helps: cream1

a) Lightens  skin tone
b) Reduces appearance of dark spots.
c) Protects from harmful UV/   B rays
d) Corrects uneven skin tone.
e) Hydrates the skin all day long               f) optimizing skin texture to feel it like feather soft

 

 

 

My experience on ‘Olay Natural White Rich All-in-one Fairness Day Cream’:

I have a dry face with black dark spots clearly visible near my nose and under eye. This not only makes me uncomfortable but also loses my confidence. So i decided to try this cream.It comes in a round solid tub-kind-of packaging which is spillage proof and didn’t break, so easy and convenient to carry in purses.This cream has a white color and a soft silky texture. I apply this cream daily in morning before leaving for office on my dry skin. It blends with the skin easily with clear texture and no oily or greasy feel.

20170504_103318

After 1 month of using this cream i can see noticeable results :

  1. This cream works & makes my skin look healthier day by day. The dark spots near my nose and under the sye are going almost unnoticeable.
  2. Now, after regular use of this cream, along with my facewash, my skin looks more even, brighter and radiant – or you can say flawless.
  3. Also acts like a good moisturizer.
  4. Works as an anti marks cream & gives a healthy looking skin.
  5. Since it contains SPF 24.Tanning on my face has reduced a lot , as my beautician says.
  6. Does not leave any greasiness or oiliness.
  7. Blends easily with skin tone

Few Drawbacks:

  • Its not so good for people with oily skin.
  • This cream has no effects on wrinkles. SO you can go for other OLAY products.
  • Sometimes if your skin is too pat-dry, this cream leaves a white cast.

 

My Recommendation: Its good for people with-normal dry skin -fight dark spot issues -require moisturiser -need skin tone to be more white. It’s not highly recommended for people with oily skin.This product really worked for me.

Price of ‘Olay Natural White Rich All-in-one Fairness Day Cream’- INR 332 for 50g.  (ebay). You can refer to amazon also.
