Elie Saab Rose Couture Le Parfum | Review

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing the new Rose Couture fragrance from Elie Saab. Inspired by the Lebanese designer’s work with floral themes, this perfume comes in a blush pink glass bottle with a crystal-like look. Since its a rose scent, I was naturally quite drawn to it and overall description sounded like something I would really enjoy. Let’s see how it fared on me.

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.

Dark Lip Look on Indian Skin | Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! Dark, vampy lips have been a huge trend this season and I’ve always been a little skeptical about whether I could pull off a deep, dark lip color. I finally experimented a little and found some lip shades that worked for Indian skin. Its all about balancing the bold lip with the right neutral, defining eye makeup and fresh complexion. Dark lip colors can draw out the color from the face, so a rosy blush on the cheeks helps a lot in bringing the look together. I would also suggest plum or burgundy based lip colors instead of greyish or bluish tones as they are more flattering. Hope you find this tutorial helpful! I liked this look so much, I’m sure I’m going to wear it again very soon!
