DIY face cleaning

Today we will see how to do DIY face cleaning. You can follow this skin care regime once or twice a week.

Things you will need

  • Deep pore cleansing milk
  • Mild ex-foliating scrub
  • Astringent / toner according to your skin type
  • Moisturiser or face cream
  • Ice cubes
  • Cotton balls
  • Blackhead remover
  • Hair belt
  • Hair clip
  • Napkin (cotton or paper preferably cotton)

Step 1) Remove any earrings, chain etc. if you are wearing (not a problem if you don't want to remove :) ). Wear hair belt to keep off your hair falling on face. Wear a hair clip to tip up your hair high in a bun.

Step 2) Take deep pore cleansing milk on your palm and apply in the form of dots to your face.

Step 3) Apply the cleansing milk in small circular and upward motion. Don't force the cleansing milk into the skin massage gently. Wait for a minute or two.

Step 4) Take cotton ball and dampen a little with water. Squeeze water out of cotton ball if excess.

Step 5) Wipe out the cleansing milk in upward direction. Change cotton ball if previous one has dirt and grim in excess.

Step 6) Now apply cleansing milk to neck and gorge area (throat area). Repeat the steps 2 to 5 for neck and gorge part.

Step 7) Wash face, neck and gorge with water and pat dry with napkin.

Step 8) Scrub your face, neck and gorge area gently with the scrub. Massage it gently on wet skin in small circular motions for about one or two minutes.

Step 9) Remove the scrub with moist cotton balls or wash it off and pat dry your skin.

Step 10) Take the blackhead remover and press by putting little pressure and moving downwards on nose area. Please do not use the blackhead remover on any other part of your face. After you are finished with the blackhead remover wash your face if required.

Step 11) Take astringent on cotton ball and apply to face. Do not rub the astringent, apply gently. A slight irritation or tingling sensation may be experienced. If you have dry or normal or combination skin apply ice cubes or toner instead of astringent.

Step 12) Apply your favourite moisturiser or face cream.

You are done!

Love is the tightest hug when you worry
Love is the 'Had your lunch?' when lunch box you dont carry

Love is the red roses bouquet when you want a pamper
Love is the feeling you want to hanker

Love is a catalogue of feelings
Love is a stack of kissed sealings

Love is the feeling of losing you
Love is the moments I think of you

Love is the light which brightens my day
Love is the hope I woke up today

Love is the feeling of being lost without you
Love is the world which revolves around you

Love is the forgiveness you offer to your loved ones
Love is the attention when you need for closed ones

Love is unrequited and rare
Love is to care and to share

End of Season Sale

End of Season Sale

Whoever Said That Money Can't Buy Happiness, Doesn't Know Where To Shop! Women rule the roost at shopping (and in some other things too!). The simple shopping of clothes, makeup items, accessories and the shopping of the type 'Shop till you drop', we enjoy all. But sometimes we need to keep a check on our shopping spree so that the guilt of after shopping spree does not linger.

We all know the famous End of season sale. Shopping in the End of season sale is not meant to be always beneficial for our wallets (or should I say credit cards). We wait for End of season sale and end up buying the stuff which we regret later.

Following are some pointers to help you shop smart

  • Check the terms and conditions of the Brand offering End of Season Sale - The terms and conditions printed in small letters which we ignore, read them carefully. Cash back offers or discounts are valid only when you shop till a certain limit.
  • Put your English to test in the End of Season Sale - There is a difference between 'Upto 51% off' and 'Flat 51% off'. There will be only 51% off on select merchandise, which too is not available in desired sizes and colours.
  • Enrol for loyalty programs- They help you save a quick bucks which otherwise you won't earn. Some loyalty programs help you merge all your cards into one.
  • Shop sensibly and not emotionally - We all love buying things we which we love at first glance and buy it no matter what the price. But keep in mind to buy the things which are on your list (Did I tell to prepare a list?). e.g- Don't keep wandering in the cutlery department, or else you will end up paying for the nice dinner set which you hardly needed or planned to buy.
  • Make a list of things which you need to buy- Go through your wardrobe and check the things which you can need for mix n match, or the outfits which you need. Take time to think and then decide which all things you need to buy
  • Plan your shopping in advance- You surely don't want to shop in a hurry or shop for unnecessary things.
