Prepare Your Skin For A Balanced Healthy Look with Skeyndor – Skeyndor Treatment Review

It seems Delhi has finally hit the summers. Welcome to the season of tanning and sweating incessantly with your skin becoming a victim to the scorching heat. Whatever precaution we may take, whatever sunscreen we may adopt in our beauty routine,  maintaining a healthy glow on the skin during summers seem quite a challenge. Gradually it begins to lose the shine and lustre that is usually present during the other seasons. Thankfully with my recent visit to the Skeyndor Studio, I could finally locate a solution.

Before I discuss how Skeyndor can be the perfect friend for addressing your skin’s problems and offer a detailed Skeyndor treatment review,  it’s important to discuss the essential reasons behind your skin losing its lustre. While the harsh temperatures and the drastic changes in climate are essentially the reasons that contribute to your skin’s dull texture, the growing pollution and constant exposure to the sun are some of the added factors that are also responsible for the same. These might seem to be the most common reasons however the main reason lies to be malnutrition of the skin. As conveyed by cosmetologist, Priya Bhandari, the lack of lustre in skin is primarily because of the deficiency of Vitamin C in the skin. Vitamin C plays a dominant role in giving your skin an inherent glow.

skeyndor treatment..

With a detailed expertise outlook on the importance of Vitamin C and how Skeyndor products and treatments are oriented to replenish the skin with its baby origin glow by Ms. Priya Bhandari, I went for the Power C+ Treatment. The most important part of this treatment is that it involves a direct penetration of real Vitamin C into your skin that boosts up your skin’s glow distinctively.

Duration of the Skeyndor Power C Treatment

The treatment took me about 45-50 minutes however it was so soothing and rejuvenating, I didn’t even realise when I dozed off to sleep. Short and precise, it consisted of 5 essential steps that were not as elaborate as a facial involves but definitely far more relaxing than the former.

The first step involved a gradual removal of the make up I was wearing.

skeyndor review

It was then followed by a series of steps that involved the aloevera mask, application of an energizing cream that contains SPF 15, penetration of the Pure C concentrate into the skin and application of the Pomegranate concentrate on the skin.

The Power C line treatment introduced by Skeyndor is mainly focussed to give your skin an instant polished shine. However it depends definitely on the therapist on how deeply she penetrates the Vitamin C concentrate and the Pomegranate concentrate. Since the major objective is to give the skin its former shine with Vitamin C, the penetration requires a thorough and rigorous massaging session.

After Effects of The Treatment: Is The Skeyndor Treatment Really Effective?

After undergoing the Power C line treatment, you might not witness an instantly radiant skin or an improvement of your skin tone. However the treatment gives your skin a natural shine and glow that is distinctive and surely appreciable.

Himalaya Mom and BabyCare Products are the Perfect Friends for Mothers

Motherhood is an amazing journey. It can be quite a challenging phase of life, especially when it comes to making the right choices for your kids. A few days ago, a recent Bloggers’ Meet conducted by Himalaya BabyCare & Himalaya Mom along with Dr. Subhashini from the Himalaya R&D Team, helped mommies like us in choosing the best for our babies, with regards to the skin care and hair care products.

 

Himalaya is a brand that holds a rich legacy of an experienced team along with thousands of happy users. The expert doctor from the team shared eye-opening insights about how Himalaya takes meticulous care of each of the ingredients going into the making of the product. All the herbs are carefully chosen, handpicked, and ensured that they are the best for your little one’s skin. For new moms or moms who often oscillate between opinions while choosing the right products for the delicate skin of their kids, such knowledgeable insights worked as a great source of advice. Moreover, as moms, we also learned how the Himalaya BabyCare range ensures that the products do not contain any sort of toxic ingredient which definitely reinforces our faith in the effectiveness of the brand.

himalaya1A brief Question and Answer session was conducted, where the Specialist patiently answered all the queries raised by moms. The Meet was not only restricted to the sharing of insights but also a live demo of the products. Display of the products gave mommies like us an idea about the feel of the products, establishing the authenticity of the brand. The Himalaya BabyCare range comprises an extensive variety taking care of the head-to-heel needs of your little one.

The most important aspect is that the brand not only knows the needs of baby’s skin but also understands the skin requirements of mothers. Well, as quoted earlier, motherhood often seems to be a tough journey where the mum forgets to devote time to herself, being involved in her daily chores. Himalaya has addressed the issues of all moms by introducing their “Himalaya Mom” range of products. In this range, you can discover necessary products exclusively made for mothers’ skin. Intimate wipes and Intimate Wash by Himalaya are some of the great products that we, as women, are always in need of.

These Organic Wipes are My Little One’s Recent Favorites and Here is All Every Mom Must Know About Them

Hello my dear readers!

Hope you are doing well.

So today let me ask you how many of you are mommies? Well when you become a mother your identity completely gets transformed not only physically but also characteristically. As a mother, we become a more responsible person, more sensitive to hygiene and always hold an eye for products that are safe for our little ones.

Just like any other baby essentials like creams, oils or even a shampoo, we need to be careful towards the wipes too that we use for our kids. Let me share a little piece of information with you.

Do you know most of the wipes are soap based wipes that might make your little one develop rashes or undesirable skin allergies? A baby’s skin is definitely more sensitive and thus it deserves more thoughtful essentials.

A few days back I got my hands on the Mother’s Sparsh set of wipes that would be a sigh of relief for any moms. Unlike the usually found wipes, these are 98% water based which make them the safest ones to choose for your little ones’soft skin. In today’s world where everything is available in adulterated form, a baby’s skin loses its natural softness, exposing it to fragrant wipes might deteriorate the situation. Herein comes the authenticity of the Mother’s Sparsh wipes.

What I Love About These Wipes

1. The Perfect Safe Choice For A Kid

Without any parabens, alcohol and being hypoallergenic in nature, these wipes are definitely a safer alternative for any kid. As it’s clinically proven to prevent diaper rash, it is definitely a must present essential in every home with a baby

2. An Exclusive Wipe With 98% Water Content

It is true that most of the times we choose a wipe either on the basis of its fragrance or by its packaging. What we ignore is it’s ingredients and content. What I loved about Mother’s Sparsh is it’s 98% water based wipes feature which is truly difficult to find. It makes sure that what touches your little one’s skin is as gentle as the touch of a mother.

3. Perfect Packaging

Wipes seem to be a burden sometimes because of its packaging drawbacks. Mother’s Sparsh wipes on the other hand are extremely travel-friendly with their wonderful, compact packaging that does not occupy too much space and can be carried over anywhere and everywhere.

4. A Touch That Every Baby Loves

As the name says, it’s truly gentle and soothing on skin. The wipe is not at all hard or harsh as some wipes turn out to be and hence you feel using them for your kid and even yourself again and again. The fabric is 100% Viscose Fabric that is natural and skin-friendly.

5. Filled with Enriching Skincare Ingredients

These wipes are filled with ingredients like aloe Vera extract, jojoba oil, castor oil that give it a mild enjoying fragrance.

5. Value For Money

Well Affordably priced at 175 INR, this pack contains 80 sheets that are medium sized and definitely enough for a month.

Hence definitely a perfect choice for your kid that is neither too heavy on your pockets and a much safer and healthier essential for use.

The “Must Present” Summer Essential For Your Skin

The summers are in the harshest moods and neither me nor my skin is quite liking it. To be very honest with you readers, though summers seem to be much better friends to the skin rather than winter, but tackling the heat is also not a pretty easy job. There are not only issues of dryness, but along with it you are also invited into a world of problems like tanning, lack of glow, too much of moist skin due to perspiration and many more.

What is essential at this hour is a good cleansing partner for your skin. Though, today I am going to mostly speak about scrubbing issues, but my chosen product would suffice both the dual purposes of scrubbing and deep pore cleansing.

INatur is a brand that I have previously relied on for my face wash during the summers. In case you want to know it’s feedback, you must visit here.

But today, I am going to speak about the De-Tan 3 in 1 from the family of INATUR Herbals. This is a “Must Have Essential” in your Summer Bag since it thrives the triple purpose of

  1. √ Cleanser

  2. √Exfoliator

  3. √Mask

However I have some other reasons to vote for this DE -Tan Magical Mask. Unlike other face exfoliators, it does not make the skin dry, rather goes easy and gentle on the skin. Its combination of papaya, apple, cucumber, peach,strawberry makes it a rich fruity mask to indulge in.

My Experience with INATUR DE Tan Mask

To be very honest and impartial about my experience, this scrub proved to be a great friend to my skin. Post wash, it not only gives a cleansing effect on my skin but also brings about a gentleness. Unlike other scrubs, it’s not harsh and does not cause cracks or roughness in the skin.

In fact the mask is so good that even my husband has also become a regular user of it.

Coming in a tub worth 475 INR, it can last as long as 2-2.5 months if used on a regular basis. Isn’t this the most affordable skin essential?

So readers, I’ll be again back with my series of other experiences. Till then, stay tuned to my blog and show some love for it in the comments or likes section.

The Amazing Hair Color That Colors With Care

Belonging to that group of individuals who happen to be sensitive enough to encounter a number of side effects and allergies due to the use of chemical hair colors, hair colouring had remained a distant dream in the times to come. I have often come across people who complain of several hair issues post their coloring sessions and thus it’s a disaster to take the correct decision for a great hair color.

Nothing Better than This to Say Hello to Sunshine: Bio Aloevera Review

biotique bio aloevera

The fresh breeze of the monsoons with the darling rain drops kissing the window panes are experiences dear to every romantic’s heart. And just like all others, I too relish and enjoy the enticing spirits of monsoon. It’s a sigh of relief from the scorching heat and the damaging sunrays. But does that mean, we need to move aside all our summer essentials during the rains? No, it only means that our beauty regimes should have something that meet the fluctuating moods of the season. As a beauty blogger, I often come across a number of brands that promise to cater to the needs of your skin for all seasons. Unfortunately, very few of them can manage to live up to the claims. My special concern was always centered around a suitable sunscreen for my skin as I am very prone to tanning. Moreover during the monsoons, it becomes extremely difficult to wisely go for a sunscreen due to oily after-effects.

Lighten-Tanned-SkinAnd thankfully, I got hold of Biotique Bio Aloevera a SPF 30+ sunscreen a few days back and without a second thought I can vouch it to be the perfect sunscreen not only for the scorching summers but also for the soothing, damp monsoons.

biotique bio aloevera review

There are a number of reasons I would love to suggest this as the perfect sunscreen for summers as well as your monsoon skincare routines.

A Natural Solution

biotique bio aloevera review

biotique bio aloevera review

While most of the sunscreen creams, lotions or potions are loaded with chemicals, The Bio Aloevera comes in an amazing natural constitution. Ingredients like Ghrit Kumari Gel, Surajmukhi{sunflower} oil, white sandalwood oil, kusumbhi oil, bees wax and purified water are its chief ingredients which make it an amazingly natural product. The best part is that being a part of the Biotique Botanicals, it is made of a 100% Ayurvedic Recipe. And

After-effects of Application

I have been using the sunscreen since a week and here are a few things that makes me give it a perfect thumbs up.

DSC_0065There is very little trace of oil secretion  throughout the day. My experiences with other sunscreen have always been quite uncomfortable. There is usually a lot of oil secretion. But Bio Aloevera is quite unusual in that dimension. Leaves behind a fresh and almost a 85% oil-free look throughout the day.

Safety Parameters

The product is dermatologically tested, organically pure and free from any sort of preservatives. This automatically accounts for the reason that it is not a cosmetic product but is enriched with therapeutic properties.

Price and Affordability

A 120 ml bottle costs 299 INR that is indeed quite a pocket-friendly price.

Final Words of Advice

If you have a normal or an oily skin, nothing can be better than this sunscreen. After all finding an aloevera based sunscreen is not quite a usual thing.

So this time, if you are looking for a pocket-friendly natural sunscreen, nothing can suit you more than Biotique Bio Aloevera Lotion.

The Moms Co.: A Natural Skin Care Rescue To Would Be Moms

It is often said that nothing can parallel the feeling of becoming a mother. The emotion of carrying a life within you, seeing it grow gradually and finally witnessing its birth is an experience of a lifetime that only a mom can understand. However along with motherhood, comes a series of responsibilities and physical difficulties. The moment you hear of conceiving, the first thought that knocks you down is your growth rate of weight, the sudden appearance of stretch marks, bloating and a series of other problems. Unfortunately, pregnancy being the most beautiful bliss of life also interferes the physical constitution of the mother in many ways.

pregnantmom..And in such unavoidable circumstances, all we can resort to is some useful products that would be a sigh of relief during our pregnancy days. At the same time, a chain of doubts inflict our mind like whether these products will be safe enough for the little one in our life.

themomsco.1

Pregnancy is indeed one of the most delicate phases of life and one need to be extra specific for the products used. It is our common ignorance that during this period without our knowledge we tend to use certain products that contain Parabens that are not only harmful for the mother but also for the little life inside us.

Thankfully I chanced to get acquainted with   The Moms Co. exclusively dedicated to gift the ‘would be moms’ the best of care during those days of life where your skin and health need maximum attention.

The Moms Co. Sticks to its claimed words “Love. Without Compromise”. Essentially all their products are truly made with Natural ingredients connecting the fertile period of motherhood to Mother Nature.

Let’s begin with their amazing

Natural Body Butter

  • Shea Butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Aloevera Powder etc.

Coming to its second great product is definitely the

Natural Stretch Oil.

We all tend to develop stretch marks post and during pregnancy. The most amazing part of the story is that stretch marks are not limited only to the period of pregnancy.

stretch marksExtra flab may often make you complain of undesired stretch marks. To soothe your stretch marks The Moms Co. has this amazing Natural Stretch Oil which moisturize the dry areas of stretch marks and gives it a calming sensation.

√Why is it A Must Product For All Women?

  • Contains the powerful blend of 7 essential oils
  • It tends to promote elasticity with its Vitamin E goodness

P.s. I have been using it since two weeks and the affected areas have become much softer.

Last but not the least, I would love to end my review with

The Natural Body Wash by “The Moms. Co.”

which is again a great soothing body wash for an experiential bathing experience. With A light fragrance this truly gives your body a calming relief and is a great replacement for those dangerous chemically loaded body washes.

moms.co.2

Thumbs Up to this body wash for
