Beauty Home Remedy #1 Turmeric Face pack for acne and acne scars

When it comes to natural ingredients for skin, Turmeric is my fav, followed by other ingredients that suit my oily skin. I tend to break out on and off, I usually get acne on my chin and around the jaw lines. So on times when I quickly want to calm my acne prone skin, I opt for this easy DIY Turmeric face pack which I mix with other natural ingredients I can easily find at home, such as; curd, lemon, honey and rose water.

#2 Castor oil for hair growth

Castor oil is known for its rich omega-6 essential fatty acids and ricinoleic. These essential nutrients play  a significant role in increasing hair growth and improving the hair quality. I always count on castor oil when I want to grow my hair faster. There are times I would cut my bangs so short and regret for weeks until it grows out a bit or I get a little used to it. Since castor oil has a thick consistency, it’s always suggested to use it with other carrier oils such as coconut oil or olive oil.  FIND OUT HOW I USE CASTOR OIL FOR HAIR GROWTH HERE

#3 Rosemary essential oil for hair growth

Essential oils are expensive and highly concentrated. You will have to use them in very little amounts, mostly adding it with other carrier oil.

Rosemary Essential Oil For Hair Growth Recipe:

You’ll need:

How to:

  • In a pan gently heat the base oils for a few seconds. DO NOT OVERHEAT.
  • Carefully take the pan off flame and add 4 -5 drops of rosemary essential oil and give it a quick stir with a spoon.
  • Massage this oil into your scalp .
  • You can leave the oil overnight or wash it after 30 mins. CHECK OUT MY HAIR GROWTH JOURNEY HERE

#4 Baking soda for blackheads

While I don’t suggest using baking soda on your face on a regular basis, but If you are at home running out of facial scrub and thinking about how to remove blackheads at home instantly using natural ingredients then give this a try.

To make this Natural Face scrub you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • Half a lemon

* If you have dry or sensitive skin, replace lemon with honey.  

Use it to remove blackheads on the nose or areas such as around the chin where you usually get blackheads and white heads. Be very gentle. Wash your face with lukewarm water, followed by rose water to close the pores.  KNOW MORE

Neutrogena hydro boost water gel review

After using the product for more than a month, I am so excited to finally write a review on Neutrogena hydro boost water gel.

Having extremely oily skin, I am super conscious on picking the right kind of moisturizer or hydrator for my skin. While, both the terms are usually used in the same line, but there is quite a big difference. So, how do I determine if I need a hydrator, moisturizer or both? Something I thought about before buying the Neutrogena hydro boost water gel cream.

A quick look at Moisturizer vs hydrator:

Understanding your skin is a must while deciding if you should go for a moisturiser or a hydrator. I am not a skin expert, but I know how my skin feels. It’s oily and acne prone.
In case you notice you have dry & flaky skin , then you might want to go for a moisturizer to lock moisture in your skin.
On the other hand, if you have a combination to oily skin, you don’t like the way a moisturizer feels on your skin , and have always been using water based moisturiser for your face. Hydrator can be a great option.

For instance, if your skin looks dull and has fine lines appearing, it just indicates that your skin is dehydrated and needs some hydrator to provide all the nourishment.

Dermatologist tested. Oil free. Non-comedogenic. These were the three things that actually convinced me to try the product and go about writing this blog post. Well, I’ll tell you my experience with the product , but first lets have a quick glance on what the product has to claim and other details before we jump into the Neutrogena hydro boost water gel review.

My take on Neutrogena hydro boost water gel:

My first impression on the product was like “wow! it ‘s really gel based and light on skin, but the scent … hmm”. The scent is very mild and refreshing, but if you know me, I always like skin care products, especially for face to be fragrance free or have natural ingredients fragrance type.Anyway, the fragrance of the product is not too strong, so it goes away after some time of application. Best thing about the product is that a little goes a long way.
I could see the result in 10 days or so. My skin looked more supple and hydrated. I use it twice a day, morning and night. Since it’s Oil free & Non-comedogenic, I feel it works great on oily skin.My only concern was the paraben in it.

I like the product, but next time, I’d love to try hydrator from some other brand which is free of parabens. 🙂
