It may be for wedding, party, office wear, formal meetings etc.

Accessories for wedding or marriages and party

For weddings, parties or social gatherings, if you are planning to wear salwar kurta or kameez, you can wear light jewellery that goes well with your dress. Heavy jewellery should be avoided.

If you are opting for saree, then  you can wear heavy jewelry. As saris adds glitter to heavy jewelry. If the occasion is special even gold and diamond is a good choice.

Hair Care

Hair Care

When we visit hair salon for getting hairstyles done, our first attention goes to the look of our hair. Even normally throughout the day, we don’t miss to have a look at our hair. it may be men or women, hair look has been your first concern. All we desire is a long, beautiful and thick black hair. The common question we ask to our hairdresser is how to grow hair faster or are concerned of our hair growth. Hair  loss is the common problem we all face. Cosmetics brands are aware of this and it is the reason they have introduced different types of hair care products.

There are a number of factors that determines the quality and health of your hair. Some people are genetically gifted of good hair, while some are not. Still if we take proper care and give good nourishment to our hair, there are more chances of having a good hair growth. You don’t have to do anything great.  Some little changes in your diet and lifestyle and within a short time you will get some positive results. But patience is the key. Following are the basic steps to follow:

Hair Type

First, know the type of hair quality or natural hair you have. Generally, we don’t give much attention to this part. It is either normal, dry, oily or combination of both. We have to treat each of them differently.

Normal Hair

Normal hairs are neither extremely dry nor oily. They are easy to maintain. Take a hair bath of three or four days a week with a good quality shampoo preferably sulfate free shampoo.

Dry hair

You have to take some extra care in maintaining dry hair. Their appearance is lifeless, get damaged and break easily. To correct this fault, pay little more attention to your diet. Have sufficient intake of vitamins and protein rich diet.

Oily Hair

The appearance of this type of hair is shinier. If you rub your hands at your head, you will feel wet fingers. The reason for such condition of hair may be genetic or having diet rich of fats and starch. The best way to control is to have low fat diet. Consume less oil and starch food in moderation.

Apart from above listed reason your hair quality depends on your age, water quality, stress level, pollution, and climatic conditions of your region and lifestyle.

Given below are some simple hair care tips:

Drink plenty of fresh and normal temperature water. Avoid alcohol, aerated and caffeine drinks.

In your daily diet include sprouts, green leafy vegetables, dry fruits such as almond, walnut or any type of nuts  and fresh fruits.

Have fresh fruit juices avoid packaged one.

Do regularly head massage with any good quality  oil preferably an herbal, ayurvedic or almond oil. It not only nourishes your hair but also gives a cooling effect.

Now a day’s it’s been trend to color hair but be careful of the brand you use and should be done in moderation.

Summer Care 2015

Summer heat is arrived and we all are fighting it out to keep cool. This year mercury level has been pretty high especially in Asian countries like India, China, Japan and others. The outcome is excess heat, skin infections, dehydration, skin rashes, sunburns, acne, itching, sweat and thirst. There are some simple tips / precautions which if you follow regularly, can help to minimize the impact of heat. As and when the summer is advancing there is gradual increase in temperature. For summer care the most common advice is one can gets, is to stay indoors.  Take shelter of your air conditioners, coolers and fan. we are looking out for skin care tips, good cosmetic products, moisturizer, skin lightening cream, beauty products etc.

All these modern resources can help you stay cool till we are indoors. But we have to go out of our house for office and other work. That is the real testing time. To minimize the effect of summer heat we have to keep cool from inside i.e. emotionally and mentally and take good care of our skin.

Cool Refreshments

To keep ourselves cool, we reach out at our refrigerators for a chilled bottle of cold water, carbonated beverages or packaged juices. Occasionally, having it for a change is fine. But in long term it may take a toll on your body. It effects your digestion power, immune system and other effects. To protect ourselves from these side effects, have fresh fruit juices, water melon, lassi (a drink made from thickening of curd with sugar), water stored in clay pots at room temperature.

Daily Hygiene

Daily hygiene is the basic thing we have learnt since our childhood. For summer, if we take some extra steps, it helps us a long way. Rose flower is available easily all over the world. But few people may be aware of its benefits in summer. It has an effective cooling power. Rose petals and rose essence oil has great cooling power. Soak rose petals overnight in water and in morning mix it with your bathing water. After taking bath with water along with rose petals softens your skin, makes it flexible and glowing in addition to guarding skin against sunburns.

Balance Diet

Be watchful of what you put in your mouth. I assure you, half job is done. Diet plays a crucial role in our life. As per weather conditions, we have to make changes in our daily diet regime. Have lots of fresh fruits, they are full of life and energy. They rejuvenate our whole system. The other combination is fresh vegetables. They are full of all essential vitamins and minerals required by our body. With proper cooking methods (less oil usage), it aids in weight management. Thirdly, avoid spicy and sour diet. Make use of body cooling spices such as cardamom, mint, fennel etc in your diet.

Sunlight

Sunlight is proven therapy for our good health. Again we have to consider climatic conditions of our country or region. In early morning, when the sun is not at its peak, exposing our skin to direct sunlight is beneficial. During the mid-day time, when sun is at its peak, direct contact with sun rays may be harmful for our skin. It causes skin burns, irritation, itching etc. avoid going out in direct sunlight. Wear cotton garments, long sleeves and preferably carry an umbrella.

Daily Routine and Lifestyle

In today’s hectic life we tend to neglect our selves. We are more prone to stress and exertion. We daily face challenges both at our home and office, to strike a balance between them. Try to take out some time for yourself, go for a summer vacation, engage yourself in your favorite hobby, spend some good time with your family and friends. All these activities have a positive effect on your body and mind.

Exercise

Exercise is a must in all seasons. For summer it helps to keep our mind and body cool. It aids in weight management. Take any activity of your choice, for example join a gym, yoga, swimming, cycling, jogging.

 

These were some easy tips to keep you refresh and cooling in the summer heat. I hope you like it. Please ensure to take some time for yourself.  If you have any suggestions do share with us.

Skin Care Summer 2015

Skin Care

Skin Care  Guide

Images above are for Presentation Purpose only

Hello friends,

Summer is already arrived and we all are fighting it out. NewspapersI magazines and Television shows are now flooded with skin care tips. All these are helpful, but how seriously we follow them. Some of these methods force us to spend without actually knowing the benefit for our body.

Today there is need to rise one step above the wide range of products available in markets. Secondly, carefully study all the features, benefits and side effects to them. Then only invest your hard earned money.  I shall reveal my personal experience in skin care with things available at our home. Finally, we have to change our lifestyle. Lifestyle is such an important part today, if ignored can prove us costly. For this, we first have to change our mindset. Change our attitude, think positively. All these small changes will reap your long term dividends, I can bet on it.

The first challenge we face is summer skin burns. If you are moving out in sun or do field work then sun rays are the first challenge you face. Prolonged exposure to sun rays causes many skin related problems like acne, skin burn, rashed, irritation, redness and others. To minimize or to completely avoid all these problems you have to take some simple steps :

The first step is understand your skin type, whether it is dry or oily. Secondly use a good quality of herbal lotion, sunscreen based and Aloe Vera is an ideal choice, it helps to keep your skin cool. Drink lots of normal temperature water to nourish your skin and compensate loss of water due to heat in body.

Life Style

Lifestyle irregularities are the root cause of all types of problems in our life. In todays world, it is very important to maintain a disciplined and simple lifestyle. As far as skin care is concerned, our lifestyle diet is the number one factor. Wrong eating habits such as too much of junk food, eating at irregular intervals, immobility i.e. sitting at one place for long hours, lack of exercise, too much intake of tea, coffee, alcohol, not having sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables. All these small factors though, if we take proper care and planning can help our skin to remain glowing and healthy. It plays a vital role in anti- ageing.

Natural Air

During summers, one thing we never let off our hand is, remote of our air conditioners. Like whenever possible we prefer to remain in air condition, it may be our home, cars, shopping malls, gyms, offices. This problem is prevalent not only in western countries like U.S.A. or Canada, even in other Asian and African countries. The negative effects of spending long hours in air conditioners are, they reduce moisture levels in air, causing dryness of skin. Then our skin is more vulnerable to skin infections. They also prevents sweating. Sweating is natural way of our body to remove toxins. So, please try to move out of your Ac rooms at least for some times during  the day frequently.  Take a walk, go to the parks, garden.

Bathing

In summer, make it a rule to bath daily at least once in a day. Water has its natural benefits. It cools our body, keeps it clean, healthy and stress free. Apply little oil or Aloe Vera gel both before and after bath. If your skin is oily, don’t apply after bath. Water will rejuvenate your skin. Avoid using hard soaps, go for good quality mild cleansers or herbal soaps.

Easy Tip

Take  one piece of papaya, smash it, add some drops of lime juice. Make a smooth paste of it. Apply it over your skin, face, hands, legs. Keep it for atleast 15 minutes for good results. Later, wash it with first warm water then cold. See the result you will get a smooth and cleaned skin.

Pollution

Today we all are victim air pollution . There is smoke and dust almost everywhere. With the increase in number of vehicles, it has added more problems. Air pollution causes allergy, aging of skin and other side effects. To protect our skin use a good quality herbal moisturizer. Once back home take bath. Add some drops of rose water to it.

Easy Tip :

Take 3 table spoon of milk, take a piece of cotton, dip it in milk and apply gently on face. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it with cold water. It will rejuvenate your skin. It removes dust and impurities attached on skin.
