Winter Dry Skin Saviours | The Body Shop Vitamin E Range | REVIEW

 

Hi everyone! Winters are here and I’m sure we all can fee the nip in the air and changing needs of our skin. Today I’m reviewing a few products from the Vitamin E range from The Body Shop. This skin care line is geared towards hydration and there are several products in here that I really like using in the winters.

 

The Body Shop Vitamin E Range

 

Previously, I’ve talked about the Moisture Mask from this range, which continues to be a winter favorite. I also really like the Toner from this range which has a thicker consistency than most toners and feels very comforting on the skin. For the warmer months, I quite like the Aqua Boost Sorbet moisturizer, with its unique refreshing gel texture and light feel.The Face Mist is another long time favorite, and probably the first product I ever tried from the range (here’s a little throwback for you, circa 2011!). A few new products have been added recently to the range and in this post, I’ll be sharing my review on 4 of products from the range which I’ve not tried before.

Eye Creams that Work!

 

Hi everyone! Today I’ll be talking about two eye creams that I’ve been using for the past 5-6 weeks that have been working really well for me. You might recall seeing a mention of these on my Snapchat or Instagram some time back. When it comes to eye creams, I’ve had more misses than hits and there’s no particular brand or product that I’ve been compelled to repurchase. But I’ve finally stumbled upon two options that have shown really good results for me.

DOs and DONTs for Acne Free Skin

 

Makeup Look - Brown and Peach

 

Acne and pimples can pop up when you least expect it, leaving you feeling distressed. Getting rid of acne does not have to be strenuous, it just needs some care for your skin as well as your overall health. Here are a few simple dos and don’ts to get rid of acne.

 

Skin care DOs for clear acne free skin

Wash your hair regularly: This will reduce the chances of oil from your hair transferring to you skin and affecting it. Regularly washing your hair can help in preventing breakouts. Keeping the scalp free from dandruff is also important for acne free skin.

Switch to a gel based cleanser: Cream based cleansers can aggravate the issue of excess oiliness. Acne is aggravated by excess oil and cream based products so switching to a gel cleanser helps in clearing the skin and reducing breakouts.

– Choose oil-free or non-comedogenic cosmetic products. Anything that clogs pores can lead to acne so look for the non-comedogenic label when buying cosmetics.

Meet the new face of Olay India

 

Hi everyone! Olay India has a new face and its one we are all very familiar with. Kajol makes a return as the face of Olay this year and earlier this week, I attended a session with her and Dr. Jaishree Sharad who is a well-known celebrity dermatologist. As a long time user of Olay Total Effects, Kajol expressed her love for the brand and its products, and also shared some of her favorite tips for beautiful skin. I’m sharing some of the insights shared by Dr. Jaishree and Kajol’s own inputs about skincare and anti-ageing below.

 

New face of Olay India - Kajol

 

  • Our skin starts changing somewhere around our mid-20s. These changes are accelerated by daily stresses, pollution, unhealthy lifestyle and other aggressors. One must notice the subtle changes to the skin in order to identify the early signs of ageing – wrinkles, dry skin, dull and uneven skin tone, dark spots and open pores.
  • A basic routine of cleansing, moisturizing and protecting your skin goes a long way in maintaining healthy skin. But to target the early signs of ageing, you need to include a gentle anti-ageing product in your routine that targets dryness, dullness and uneven skin tone. Olay Total Effects range is designed to address the first signs of ageing and it works so effectively because of its multi- vitamin complex, VitaNiacin; a unique patented combination of Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Pro-vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, specifically formulated to help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.
  • Kajol’s top two tips for maintaining healthy, youthful skin – cleansing well before bedtime and drinking a minimum of 2.5 litres of water each day. She also talked about the importance of sun protection, something she hoped she had known when she was younger.

Videos This Week

 

Hi everyone! I hope you had a good week! Here is a recap of the videos that went up on my YouTube channel this week. Still in the spirit of Diwali festivities, I uploaded 2 tutorials – one is a soft, day time look where I’ve also shown a step-by-step skin care routine using Aviance Hydra Balance range. Starting with the soothing and fresh Cleansing Gel from the range, I cleansed my face and then used the Serum for deep reaching hydration and the Day Creme for instant nourishment and a dewy finish. Watch my video embedded below to see the full routine on how to prep you skin before makeup application.

In the second video, I’ve shown the look I wore on Diwali evening. Its a fairly simple look with emphasis on the eyes in the form of metallic gold eye shadow, paired with a neutral warm lip. Next, keeping up with new launches, I’ve swatched all the shades of the new Nykaa Floral Carnival collection for you. Its a gorgeous collection and if you’re a fan of pinks, purples and deeper rouge tones, do check it out. And lastly, since the last DIY video was so well-received and I got several requests for dry skin remedies, I’ve done a DIY Moisturizing Scrub-Mask that can help you achieve soft, smooth, moisturized skin this winter!
