Hey everyone!

I had been looking for a pale pastel pink nail color for the spring summer and I zeroed in on the Maybelline Color Show Nail Color in Constant Candy. Everything I had tried from the Color Show range has been pretty fantastic in terms of formula so I was hoping the same from this shade. Unfortunately this didn’t fare that well.

Q : Dullness, pigmentation and spots are a common problem for many Indian women. What are your recommendations to help reduce pigmentation and get brighter, more even toned skin?

 

A : All beautiful skin is “rosy, lustrous, unblemished, smooth, evenly coloured, soft and firm” according to the ancient Ayurvedic Shastras. Dull, sallow, pale, blemished, pigmented dry and dehydrated skin are indications of imbalance and premature aging due to stress, poor habits, exposure to the environment, and of course, improper skin care. Therefore, in order to keep the skin looking young, radiant and blemish free , your beauty products and treatments must provide exfoliation to remove dead skin cells; epidermal stimulation for new cell growth; antioxidant properties for cellular rejuvenation and repair; improved capillary blood flow; and penetrating moisture and nutrients to replenish all seven layers of skin tissue. Here are some recommendations for reducing pigmentation and getting a lighter brighter even toned skin.

 

1. Mix together 1 teaspoon each of super fatted milk cream laced with fine Kashmiri Saffron or the Forest Essentials Soundarya Ubtan, a squeeze of lemon and Raw Organic Honey and massage the mixture into the face and neck . Rinse with lukewarm water after 15 minutes. This traditional recipe is known to be effective in rejuvenating and revitalizing the skin leaving it firmed, even toned and more youthful.
