My Current Winter Skincare Routine

My Current Winter Skincare Routine
Having lived almost half my life in Pune, I have literally forgotten what cold weather day in and day out can actually feel like. Don't get me wrong, I have seen my fair share of cold climates in Ladakh, Sikkim and even places like Gwalior, however since tthe past 15 years now I haven't really been subjected to long continuous periods of cold weather, if you know what I am saying :)

Even though Pune doesn't get very cold, it does get excruciatingly dry and for someone like me who has super super dry skin, this can pose to be a problem... I need to have very different skincare regimens and list of products for various seasons. So today I decided to share my current skincare routine with you all... I would love for you guys to share yours with me and give me a insight into how you handle the cold weather season!




Cleansing, Exfoliating and Toning
This is a vital part of a skincare regimen and goes without saying that it should be addressed …

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line?

OMG was I #Adulting?
Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

The name's quite a mouthful isn't it? Believe it or not there is a lot more text that can be appended after this name that would probably describe the product a little more! But well you can read it off the carton in the images that I have posted else I'll just end up screwing up my SEO ^_^

Drugstore Skin Care Products This Winter #BackToBasics

Drugstore Skin Care Products This Winter #BackToBasics
10 more days to go and we will be bidding adieu to 2016... It's been an interesting year alright, professionally, personally and blog wise... 2016 is the year I actually grew up mentally and emotionally... It has been the year of finding myself, doing stupid things and learning things first hand, gaining confidence and getting a perspective about what my priorities are in life... Needless to say 2016 gave me my life's maximum number of ups and downs till date and also is leaving me with a feeling that things are not gonna slow down in the near future...
I am kinda bracing myself but at the same time I am pretty excited :)

COMPARISON REVIEW: The Body Shop Frosted Plum Hand Cream Vs British Rose Hand Cream Vs Burt's Bees Hand Salve

COMPARISON REVIEW: The Body Shop Frosted Plum Hand Cream Vs English Rose Hand Cream Vs Burt's Bees Hand Salve
I have dry hands, even when I wet my beauty sponge with water I need to apply some form of cream on my hands... So much so that my morning routine consists of taking a shower, after which I apply my face cream (you gotta give it time to get absorbed before applying foundation), then wet my beauty sponge, then apply body butter, wear clothes and finally get down to putting on makeup...

Did you notice the anomaly here? I apply my body butter *after* I have wet my beauty sponge so that my hands are always moisturised!

Why Do I Need A Hand Cream?

Why Do I Need A Hand Cream?
Its interesting you know how we tend to take care the most of the part of our body that we perhaps use the least physically... Our face...  We use different kinds of cleansers, moisturisers, scrubs, masks and the list goes on :) But surprisingly enough our hands are probably the most used and yet the most ignored part where lavishing body parts with potions and lotions are concerned...

Post Holi Skincare

Post Holi Skincare
As I sit here all cleaned up, drinking a chilled glass of Iced tea, with the pati ranting about how people nowadays do not play Holi with passion and vigour anymore and a soft, lilting music plays in the background of Scottish bagpipes, I cannot help but lament about my skin... After a whole day of playing Holi in the scorching sun and colors that I am pretty sure weren't organic my skin has a subdued burning sensation especially on my face and arms...
And my back itches...

Prep Yourself for Holi: Pre-Holi Care
The beautiful festival of colours is just around the corner and preparations in all Indian homes must be in full swing. From frying yummy gujias or karanjis to buying pichkaris and gulaal we are all preparing for it in our own little but special ways, isn't it? Some of us are even traveling to be with our loved ones and I know that even though Diwali sometimes tends to eclipse Holi, Holi does hold a special place in all our hearts...

REVIEW: NIVEA Body Lotions - All Variants
Nivea never fails to bring up fond childhood memories for me... My sister, my mum and I all three of us swear by NIVEA where body lotions and face creams are concerned...

In the same vein I am going to be reviewing 4 variants of Nivea Body Lotion and I am sure you will find one of them will surely suit your needs.

Top 5 Skincare Products Under INR 500 - Dry Skin

5 Skincare Products Under INR 500 - Dry Skin When I started blogging, the initial years were all about using, reviewing and writing about products that I could get my hands on easily. This obviously meant that the majority of the products that I used were essentially drugstore or budget buys... Then I got recognition by PRs and brands and my horizon with respect to skincare and beauty products broadened and I got easy access to expensive and luxurious products...
