Skincare Wednesday : Lotus Herbals whiteglow micro-emulsion Review and Swatch

 

 

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing my favorite moisturizer  Lotus Herbals skin whitening and brightening whiteglow micro-emulsion. (Sorry the post is a day late!) I have oily acne prone skin and generally use oil-free moisturizers but the attractive packaging and marketing of the whiteglow range along with the good reviews making rounds on the blogosphere compelled me  to try out this product.

Price : Rs 245

Quantity : 40 ml

Wednesday skin care special : Is Benzoyl Peroxide the best treatment for acne?

 

 

Hi everyone!

Here’s taking a little break from the makeup posts and sharing some information about the chemical Benzoyl Peroxide that I found recently. Benzoyl Peroxide is a chemical used in most anti-acne products in small concentrations and is generally found to be an effective cure for acne. I sometimes use a Benzoyl Peroxide cream for spot treatment of breakouts and  the product info of Dermalogica Concealing Spot treatment(which does NOT contain Benzoyl Peroxide)  piqued me as to why someone would NOT want to use Benzoyl Peroxide treatments to treat their acne.

Corallista Skincare Tips for oily acne prone skin : How to suppress breakouts and pimples

 

 

Hi everyone!

Breakouts and pimples are the bane of every oily skinned beauty. Sometimes it could be a new product, excessive humidity/exposure to pollution and sometimes just irregular routine – but every once in a while, acne rears its ugly head and here are a few things that I personally do to supress breakouts

*Please note- these tips are not for ‘prevention’ of breakouts, but for suppressing emerging/existing breakouts*

 

  • Switch to an anti-acne face wash. Recommendation – Neutrogena oil free acne wash. Typically these contain 1-2% salicylic acid. But do not wash your face too many times! Once in the morning, once before bed and 1-2 times in between when you come from outside is enough.

Wednesday Skincare Special#1: Skin care Basics

Hi everyone!

As I mentioned in yesterday’s update post, I’m starting a new section on skin care wherein I’ll be posting skin care tips/product reviews every Wednesday. Here is the first post of this series!

Today I’ll be talking about basic skin care. This is especially for those who are not so familiar with the subject and find themselves lost while choosing products for themselves or when asked the question ‘what is your skin type?’.

Note: All of it is written in my own words for simplicity and better understanding and better technical definitions are available on the web for those who are interested.

Skin is the largest organ of our body. In the present day world, our skin bears the brunt of sun exposure, pollution, unhealthy lifestyles and stress everyday. All these factors simply translate to the fact that our skin NEEDS CARE. We might have beautiful eyes or a lovely pout but if the skin is dull ,lifeless and uncared for, neither of these can make up for it. Cutting a long story, our skin needs some basic care, not just external but internal too i.e not just in terms of what we apply on our skin but also the food we eat, the lifestyle we lead and the mental state we stay in.
