Want Glowing Smooth Skin? Use A Night-Cream : My post on Pepperfry

Hey people,
Love you guys for all the love and you inspire me :)
My post on Pepperfry,
Here is the post : http://blog.pepperfry.com/want-glowing-smooth-skin-use-a-night-cream/

It says:

Want Glowing Smooth Skin? Use A Night-Cream
By Guest Blogger Apoorva Neeloji


You might have heard about the creams which make your face look fairer instantly or keeps you oil free for longer time during the day.

But what if you have an option of getting a brighter and flawless skin that too with a simple trick every day?

The answer is…Night Cream. Don’t use one yet? Then you must know that using a night cream regularly actually makes your skin bright, beautiful and wrinkle free.

Now that we have your complete attention here is what you need to know.

What does a night cream do exactly?

A night cream is typically a thick cream which is supposed to be applied on the face before you sleep. The ingredients repair your skin cells internally since we all know, our body repairs itself when we sleep. During night, we have the highest metabolic rate and which applies to the repairing of skin cells too. And these nights creams work on the skin and gives all the essential nutrients needed to make the skin healthier by morning.

Simply put, there are two reasons why a night cream is important:

  • TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss) is greatest at night. A night cream can prevent that kind of dehydration.
  • The body’s cells are replenished with nutrients and are being regenerated at night, so this is the time to optimize the delivery of the raw materials the skin needs.

Should you use one?

Yes, that is if you want brighter, even toned skin every day. And also if you can’t spend too much time or money on parlors and skin treatments, a night cream is the best solution. Simply pick a night cream according to your skin type and requirement and you are ready to a skin makeover.

We recommend: Skin care range from Votre.


When is the ideal time to apply nigh cream?

Foods to Lose Weight in a Healthy Way


This post is dedicated to all the people who want to reduce weight.

I want to put forth few foods to reduce your weight.
Maintating a proper diet and few exercise will make you lose weight with less effort.
Well, I would write about the exercises in the next post.
As of now,
I want to give a list of foods which would result in losing weight without hampering your health or cause any side effects.

1.Green Tea:

A Herbal tea which can be bought from the store or can be made at home helps a lot in reducing the weight. It indeed helps in providing all the nutrients needed for the body to eliminate toxins.Have green tea thrice a day to have the best results.
2.Apples

Apples are low in calories. 100g of apple provide only 50 calories. The fruits doesn’t contain saturated fats or cholesterol; but rich in dietary fiber, which helps, prevent absorption of bad cholesterol.
3.Dry fruits
These are dried fruits like Amlonds,Raisins, Dates.Dry fruits can be added in small quantities to fresh fruits in diets. These fruits are excellent sources of vitamins and minerals, and they complement the deficiency of minerals and vitamins in fresh fruits. Dry fruits along with fresh fruits in diets are effective in burning excess fat and reducing cholesterol, thus promoting healthy weight loss. They also improve the immune system and aid in detoxification.
4.Mushrooms
Eating mushrooms in large quantities can help prevent or treat obesity, says a new study.
According to the study, which was led by Dr. Cheskin, suggests that increasing intake of low-energy density foods, specifically mushrooms, in place of high-energy-density foods, like lean ground beef, is a strategy for preventing or treating obesity.
5.Oatmeal
Oatmeal is the perfect meal to start your day because it boosts your energy and has plenty of fiber to keep you full and satisfied. Oatmeal breaks down slowly in the stomach, giving you long-lasting energy. It is also full of water-soluble fibers, which play a crucial role in making you feel full over a longer period of time. Studies have also shown that oatmeal reduces cholesterol, maintains blood sugar levels and fights against heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, and obesity

6.Olive Oil
Health benefits of Olive oil can be attributed to the presence of nutrients such as omega-3, oleocanthal, phenolic compounds, selenium and vitamins.
It is known to provide protection against cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and even cancer. Olive oil has proved useful in skin and hair care, and if used in food instead of saturated fats, it may aid in weight loss as well.
Olive oil is also very high in anti-oxidant content. Anti-oxidants help prevent cell damage through free radical scavenging and also help repair cell damage. Increased anti-oxidants in the body slow down the process of aging and may even increase longevity.

7.Chilli Peppers:
This is the one thing which I wanted to share the most. We indians love spices.

All peppers are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, but red peppers are simply bursting with them. Antioxidant vitamins A and C help to prevent cell damage, cancer, and diseases related to aging, and they support immune function.
Capsaicin, the ingredient responsible for making peppers hot, as the reason why they have a fat burning ability. This potent ingredient triggers the pain receptors in your mouth to become activated. Therefore, after you consume a spicy dish, your pain receptors send a message to your brain that relief is needed and pronto! Your brain responds to this cry for help by speeding up your metabolism and heart rate, in order for your body to sweat and cool off.
As a result, your body experiences an increased calorie burn and engages in a fight against fat. Basically, your body has a similar experience as it does during a workout. However, this doesn’t mean that you can forgo the gym! (Unfortunately, not that many calories are burned.)


Well,
I guess I didn't bore you guys. Just wanted to share some useful information with you people.

I am done. Don't scold me if I made you waste your time. haha

Monsoon & MEN !!

Hey people..

For a Change I want to write a post for Men. Don't ask me why but my instincts making me do so. haha.

Now that I have started the post. I want to divide the post into 2 sections. Beauty and Fashion.

1. Beauty: Do's and Dont's

Cleanse: YES! please wash your face twice a day with a face cleanser and not that body soap.!

Face- Kinis !!! LOL :D

Face kinis!!!
LOL
This was the reaction when I got to know this.

People in china covered their faces with some thing the body suits which entirely covered their face just giving gaps to see..to smell..to eat..
Oh yeah.. to breath!!

This is called heights of protecting themselves from getting tanned.

The news:
CHINA, QINGDAO : This picture taken on August 16, 2012 shows Chinese beachgoers wearing body suits and protective head masks, dubbed "face-kinis" by Chinese netizens, on a crowded public beach in Qingdao, northeast China's Shandong province. The face masks were initially designed to protect from sunburn but it turns out they are also quite handy at repelling insects and jellyfish, as many people in China dislike getting a tan, especially on the face.

Look at the poor kid :(

LOL desgner facekinis :P
Okey,I get it! You get tanned on your body but not on faces :D

One more LOL :P


No offence!

If you don't want to get tanned stop scaring people with these masks..go to an indoor pool.
Some times I wonder, What all people run behind.

The tan is the simplest thing to get rid off.
What is the fun when you dont have that natural tan when you enjoy in the beach.

Fabindia Tea Tree Soap Review

Hey ladies :)
How was your weekend? I hope you had lots of fun.
I have been to the Inorbit mall,here in Hyderabad and ended up buying few handmade soaps from the FabIndia store.

I had a tough time choosing the soap as there were too many to pen down here. I heard tea tree essence are good for oil skin. As I have an oily skin, I preferred it.

Here it says Tea Tree - Cleansing and Rejuvenating.

Price:
65 INR for 100 gms.



What it claims:
Cleansing and rejuvenating soap with tea tree oil which helps remove excess oil and prevent acne and pimples. Ideal for oily skin.

Ingredients:
Ready Mix Combi Bar Flakes, Purified Water, Sodium Peg 7 Olive Oil Carboxylate, Olive Oil Peg 7 Ester, Poly Ethylene Glycol 7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Tea tree Oil, Sodium PCA.

Package:
It comes a transparent hard plastic sheet wrapped around it. It has a paper cover with the Fabindia logo and all the information printed on the other side. It is packed in such a way that you can actually see the soap.

Life Expectancy:
2 years.
With the plastic shield on

My experience with the soap:
Well,
I like transparent soaps with little of smell added to it. And this soap is what actually I'm referring to.
Its mild on my oily skin. As soon as I finished shower, before I apply a  moisturiser it turned little dry( like any other soap) but the dryness left me in sometime even when I don't apply a moisturiser(I forgot to apply actually :P )
It moisturised my skin so much that I need not apply any moisturiser later.
I loved this quality of this product.
It lathers well.
Next,
The smell. It has the typical tea tree smell. Not so strong. Though it stays once you are done with shower it goes off in sometime.
Without the plastic cover(I can see my fingers here :D)
Finally,
A Fab product from FabIndia.

Pros:
  • Awesome on oily skin.
  • Smells nice.
  • Moisturises skin so well.
  • love the transparency (my personal likes).
  • Worth the money.
Cons:
  • None as of now.

Cheers
-Appu
