Home Remedies To Relieve Tired And Swollen Feet

Hello everyone,

In today’s busy world tired and swollen feet has become a common problem. So today I thought of sharing some easy home remedies to relieve tired and swollen feet with you guys.

1) The easiest way to get relief from tired and swollen feet would be to dip them in a bucket of cold water. You can even keep your feet under a cold water tap.
2) Place your feet on a pillow and rest for about 20 minutes. Elevated feet helps in getting relief from tired and swollen feet.
3) Rubbing feet with peppermint oils and fragrant herbal oils are effective in treating swollen feet. Massaging would improve blood circulation, which in turn will reduce edema.
4) This might come to you as a surprise but rolling a tennis ball under your feet for several minutes is an effective way of exercising the feet and treating tiredness.
5) Take tow buckets of hot and ice-cold water respectively. Soak your feet first in hot water (keep it as hot as you can bare) for about 10 minutes. Thereafter, quickly switch to the bucket containing ice cold water for about 30 seconds. Repeat the process several times a day.
6) mix 2 tsp castor or jojoba oil, 3 drops of lavender essential oil, 1drop each of German chamomile essential oil and germanium essential oil in a small bowl and massage gently into your feet. Once you do this put your feet up for sometime. Wash your feet with a mild soap and apply nourishing cream on your feet.
7) Massaging with ginger essential oil is effective for reducing swelling. Apart from alleviating pain and soothing aches, it also improves blood circulation..

Hope these remedies help you guys. Do try them and let me know your experiences. That’s all for now. Stay healthy cya πŸ™‚

Aroma Magic Grapefruit face wash

Hello everyone,

Here I am with a new review. Well some of my friends told me yaar ela why only oriflame products please come with a different brand and I would soon be coming with AM products. They all were excited and waiting eagerly for this πŸ™‚

Anyways coming to the review..
What are AM products? ‘AM’ i.e Aroma Magic products. They are the pioneers in aromatherapy turning nature’s essence into natural beauty. The AM range of products was launched by Dr. Blossom Kochhar.

Packaging :- Attractive packaging. Well it only looks attractive, it’s not at all travel friendly. It comes in a transparent tube having a flip cap. The gel inside is yellow in colour. It tends to spill out in the initial days so care has to be taken where and how you keep it

20131104-153607.jpg

Ingredients :- The ingredients and directions to use are clearly mentioned on the packaging as follows

20131104-154311.jpg

Good about this product:-
1) it makes your face squeaky clean.
2) Leaves your skin glowing and bright.
3) Regular use would reduce your pore size and would give you a more radiant and a tight looking skin.
4) Economically priced.
5) Available in different sizes and quantity.

Problems:-
1) Not travel friendly.
2) High demand-low supply. i.e there’s a very less stock of the product available and you have to wait for days till the next stock is delivered
3) doesn’t wash off easily. Requires a lot of water

Final verdict:- a good product for oily skin. It even reduces acne and blemishes. It’s natural and safe so it won’t break you out. It has a mild and a pleasant fregerance of orange and lemon. The aloe veera extract present smoothens your skin.

Lemme warn those of you wanting a fairer looking skin, do not expect magic from this product. This product will brighten up your skin not make you fair. Secondly do not expect aromatherapy from this product.

Am products should work on their supply patterns and be more flexible to their customer needs.
Have sturdy bottles so its travel friendly and there’s no spillage.
4/5 stars πŸ™‚

Hope you guys find this review useful and interesting. Wish you all a happy Diwali and prosperous new year cya πŸ™‚

Important information

Hello everyone,

I came across something very interesting and important, thought of sharing it with you guys too πŸ™‚

Have you ever heard of LPG gas cylinder’s expiry date..? Most of us do not know about this. I came to know this today from a Facebook page. Expired cylinders are not safe to use and may cause accidents in this regard. Please be cautious at the time of accepting any LPG cylinders from the vendor.

Well, how to find LPG cylinder’s expiry date..?
Here is how we can check the expiry date of LPG cylinders: On one of the three sides of the stems of the cylinders, the expiry date is coded alphanumerically as follows

A or B or C or D and some two digit number following this e.g. D06

The alphabets stands for quarters.
-A for march (1st quarter)
-B for June (2nd quarter)
-C for September (3rd quarter)
-D for December (4th quarter)

The digit stands for the year till it is valid.
Hence D06 would mean December qtr of 2006

Your kind co-operation will save life of many people and create awareness among the public..

Hope you will all share this information with your loved ones and others. Stay alert stay safe cya.. :))

Milk & Honey Gold Creamy Soap Bar

Hello everyone,

Here I am with another amazing product from oriflame. i.e
. Milk & Honey Gold Creamy Soap Bar. The name itself makes you feel like ‘want it’, isn’t it..? πŸ™‚

Packaging & quantity :- as you can see in the image bellow it comes in a creamy white box and it looks quite attractive. One soap bar contains 75g of the product.

20131013-191416.jpg

20131013-191445.jpg

20131013-191531.jpg
It has a mild and a very nice fregerance.

Ingredients :-

20131013-192008.jpg

Pros :-
1) Indeed, just as the name suggests, it is a creamy soap and though being creamy it washes off easily. Lathers well
2) Leaves your skin clean and bright.
3) Moisturises and softens your skin
4) Nice mild fregerance.
5) Attractive and neat packaging.

Cons :- As such I don’t see or find any cons but one thing is strange and common about all oriflame products. Oriflame claims its products to be natural but it’s ingredient list suggests of having so many chemicals. I don’t know how far these chemicals are harmless/harmful but yeah so far no one has complaint about any side effects from this product. Infact it’s the most liked product of oriflame. I personally have been using this product from the past 2 1/2 years and can say for sure it lives up to its claims. πŸ™‚

Conclusion :- another reason why I love this product is because it has the goodness of milk and honey. As we know, and for those who are unaware, milk has a very good cleansing agent and honey has anti-microbial properties. These two (milk and honey) works wonders on your skin. And as far as the ingredients (chemicals) are concerned I appreciate oriflame to display their entire list of ingredients, unlike some other brands who hide their chemical part.

This soap is suitable for all skin type. And since it is very gentle it will cause no harm to sensitive skin. Though all age-groups can use this soap I would suggests kids above 10 years only should use it

I give this product 5/5 stars

That’s all for for now see you all soon with some other products good bye stay healthy πŸ™‚

Go Natural

Hello everyone,

I know you all must be eager to know which product I am gonna review today. Well I thought lemme share some easy and useful home-made face pack recipes with you. I personally like face packs a lot, well who doesn’t..? πŸ™‚

Tired of acne pimples and their marks? Go natural this time. I am sure when it comes to skin problems or skin care products, we ladies do not hesitate spending on expensive creams, salon treatments and what not. Today I will share some easy face pack recipes using those ingredients which are easily available in our Indian kitchen.

Before telling you about the face packs please keep the following points in mind
1) Face packs should be applied on cleansed face
2) Make sure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients of the face packs
3) Avoid making any kind of facial movements (like talking, laughing, etc) because this could cause wrinkles on your face.
4) Use of a moisturizer is essential after face pack.
5) Be patient because natural remedies take time but will definitely give you the best results.

Face packs for treating acne pimples and their marks.

Pack-1 :- Mix fuller’s earth (multani miti) with rosΓ© water and lemon juice. Apply on cleansed face and neck. Keep it for 20 minutes or till it dries and rinse well. Pat your face dry and apply moisturizer. Do this just once a week. (Multani miti 2tspn or as per your need to cover your entire face and neck. Equal quantity of rosΓ© water and lemon juice to form a thick paste of the mixture)

Pack-2 :- Gram flour/besan (channe ka aata) with curd/yogurt, mix well to form a thick paste. Apply on clean face and neck. Keep it for 20-30 minutes. When it gets completely dry damp your face slightly with water and scrub gently in circular motion and rinse off. Pat your face dry and apply moisturizer. Do this thrice a week or even everyday if you want.

Pack-3 :- Apply paste of mint leaves (pudhina leaves) and honey. This can be done every alternate day.

Pack-4 :- Mix mulltani miti, neem paste, camphor (kapur) with rosΓ© water. Apply and keep for 15-20 minutes rinse and apply moisturizer. Do this once a week.

Pack-5 for pimplemarks :- 2spn multani miti, 1spn neem paste, 4 cloves powdered, a pinch of camphor and rose as per need to form a thick paste of the mixture. Apply on clean face and neck. Keep for 20 minutes and rinse well, pat dry and apply moisturizer. Do this once a week.

Warning- you need not do all of these packs, choose any one of these packs and do it regularly as per instructions. People with sensitive skin avoid using multani miti because it would be harsh on your skin. You can replace multani miti with besan for sensitive skin.

That’s all for today. Do try these face packs and lemme know whether you like them. You can mail me on my I’d [email protected]
Will try to bring to you more of such interesting and easy face pack recipes. Cya take care. Stay healthy and gorgeous πŸ™‚

Pure Nature Organic Blueberry And Lavender Face Creami

20130818-121832.jpg

Hello everyone,

Here I am lets get started with the review of the pure nature organic blueberry and lavender face cream from Oriflame.

PACKAGING AND APPLICATION-

20130818-130936.jpg

20130818-131023.jpg

It’s a day and night cream. A light weight creamy white coloured cream. The tub contains 75ml cream in it. It has a sweet pleasant fragrance.
Apply a small amount on the face after cleansing and toning in the morning and night.

INGREDIENTS- Aqua, ethylhexyl stearate, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, acetylated lanolin,butyrospermum parkii butter, cetyl alcohol, peg-20 stearate, phenoxyethanol,tetrahydroxypropyl ethylenediamine, carbomer, imidazolidinyl urea, parfum, methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben, lavandula angustifolia extract, vaccinium myrtillus extract, linalool, potassium sorbate, ci 17200, ci 42090

PROS-
1) 100% organic in nature.
2) Day and night cream
3) Easily absorbs in the skin
4) Pleasant fragrance
5) Moisturises and leaves the skin Kooning radiant

CONS-
1) Contains parabens
2) Makes the skin oily after an hour or so.

SUMMARY- Hmmm, well the ingredient list scares me. Still a good enough cream, which won’t have any bad effects on your skin. Though Oriflame claims it to be for all skin type, it would suit dry skin best. It won’t do any bad to sensitive and normal skin too. Not recommended for oily skin since it would make your skin oily after sometime. It’s a day and night cream so you don’t need to have two different creams for the day and night. Overall it doesn’t cause any breakouts so sensitive skin people don’t need to think twice before using it.

I would rate this blueberry and lavender cream 4/5 stars πŸ™‚

That’s all for now. See you all very soon with another review. Till then stay healthy and gorgeous….!
