Summer is here and while it is an incredibly fun time of the year, its also taxing on our skin. The soaring temperatures and hot winds of this season can result in skin damage, making it rough and dull. It is important to take care of our skin throughout the season.

Here are 10 home remedies for glowing skin in summer.

  • Water therapy – One of the most commonly spoken about remedies, but not as often followed, water therapy can be a highly effective procedure for getting a glowing skin this summer. Drinking plenty of water not only keeps your body hydrated, but also rids the body of toxins.
  • Cucumber and yogurt face pack – This combination makes for a highly useful face pack for glowing skin in summer. Mix half a cucumber and one tablespoon yogurt in a blender and apply the paste on your face. Leave the paste on for 15 minutes and then rinse off with water.
  • Rosewater – This is a simple but effective tip. Wash your face with rose water daily. The natural properties of rosewater make it act as a toner and make your skin glow.
  • Milk and banana – Another popular combination for the summer is banana and milk. Applying a paste made of a mixture of banana and milk for around 15-20 minutes will give result in glowing and soft skin. To boost this effect, moisturize with an appropriate lotion like the Olay Total EffectsL ighweight Anti-Ageing Cream for soft, supple skin.

Hi everyone! Today I’ll be reviewing 2 products from the L’Occitane Immortelle skin care line. The brand shared the Cleansing Foam and the SPF20 Day Cream with me for review some months back. I’ve tried bath/body care products and fragrances from the brand but this is the first time I’m trying out their skincare. The Immortelle range is meant for ageing skin and contains extracts of the Immortelle flower which is supposed to have firming properties on the skin.

Spring-Summer launches from Clinique India

 

Hi everyone! Yesterday I attended the launch of the new Clinique Fresh pressed system and BIY Blend it yourself pigment drops at Verbena, Lower Parel. The setting and ambiance was so lovely with lots of light and greenery, I thought I’d share a few pictures from the launch with you.

The Fresh pressed range has 2 products – a powder cleanser that comes in one-time use satchets and a Vitamin C Booster Emulsion that you can add to your moisturizer for powerful anti-ageing and brightening benefits. The new launch in makeup this season are the BIY pigment drops that allow you to create a custom coverage base product, with the texture of your choice. It reminds me of the CoverFX Custom Cover drops! There’s also a new mascara which once again plays to the custom theme, you can basically vary the amount of product picked up by the wand to get a natural or dramatic look. I’ll be reviewing all these products once I’ve had the chance to try them out for a few weeks. Happy weekend!

Makeup Look - Bright Magenta Lip

 

You’re probably thinking that oatmeal is a pretty random ingredient to use while making a face scrub. After all, isn’t this an ingredient that’s more at home in your kitchen than on your dressing table? Well, oatmeal has a ton of skin care benefits such as reducing dry skin and soothing itchy skin. Moreover, its grainy texture really helps when you use it as an exfoliator as you can then remove all dead skin and impurities easily. Instead of risking the chemical burn of branded exfoliators, try any of these DIY oatmeal scrubs that you can make at home. These scrubs when used with homemade peel off masks will result in clearer, dirt-free, glowing skin!

 

1. The plain Jane scrub

  • One of the best things about an oatmeal scrub is that you don’t even have to add more ingredients to it. It’s the perfect lazy girl recipe!
  • Mix some oatmeal with hot water and let it sit until it becomes soft.
  • Rub the oats in a circular motion all over your face to exfoliate.

 

2. The oatmeal and milk scrub

  • This oats scrub can be used to moisturize your skin slightly while you exfoliate.
  • Just add some warm milk to the oats until they become soft.
  • This should take 5-10 minutes. Rub it all over your face in a circular motion.
  • If you don’t feel like using milk, you can always use a substitute in the form of a mild moisturizer like Olay Moisturizing Lotion.
