Fight pimples the natural way

Walking into a cosmetic store or even the beauty section of any major hyper-mart or your favorite multi-brand retailor can be a nightmare for some. The staff at every brand counter is sure to hound you like a pack of wolves and make you feel that your skin is really the worst in the world. They will hail the virtues of the brands they represent without any knowledge of the chemicals that lace it or the harmful side effects that follow with long term use. 

So what is your preferable best bet to a healthy, radiant skin without really burning a hole in your pocket?  Natural alternatives and skin care remedies have been around for time immemorial. Grandmother’s formulae or “Nuskey”, beauty tips that have held their strength for countless generations are something everyone should swear by. There is really no substitute for natural remedies and this is a fact that all mother’s and grandmother’s will attest to.

Here is a quick recap of a few natural home remedies for radiant, glowing skin and freedom from acne all passed down from generation to generation which I’m sure most of us would have observed our mother’s and grandmother’s use with great success.

Using lemon juice on pimples- Lemon juice is known to be a natural disinfectant, know to fight bacteria. Applying it on the skin can rid it of bacteria. The only precaution to follow while using it is not leaving it on your skin when you step out into the sun as it is known to have bleaching effect on the skin.

Honey for great looking skin- Honey is also known for its anti-bacterial properties. Though applying honey on your skin could have adverse reactions in some cases. It is best to do a patch test before you go the whole way.

Turmeric to your rescue- Remember the yellow looking spice available in every Indian kitchen. Its uses are manifold. From being a soothing remedy for all pains with its natural pain killer properties it is also known as a very effective natural remedy for all acne related woes. Mixing some turmeric with coconut oil and applying on the skin is known to work wonders. Albeit keeping overnight could lead to yellow stains that are oftentimes difficult to get rid of.

In this fast paced world not all of us have the luxury of time to try out natural remedies at home. 
A quick fix solution to this problem is products made from natural ingredients.
 In India, the brand Vicco is a household name and a synonym for natural products.

My metamorphosis into a bun maska...

My heart leaped with elation When I read- Cafeteria announces the launch of a bun maska station    Now I could have my favourite snack Any time round the clock without holding back
Long winding lines at the chaiwala Seemed to attest that I was not the only one who thought so So light and fluffy, melt in the mouth! Is one ever enough? Umm no!   Can be gobbled up in a jiffy No mess, a time save, really quick and spiffy  Not one but  four versions to choose from Eat to your hearts content without any qualm     Bun with butter, extra cheese, and if you have a sweet tooth, there's jam  Accompanied with a hot cup of  sweet tea,  Anything better can there be?  
 Then one night in my dream Appeared  my super  thin calorie conscious friend who  thinks she's  supreme   I was as usual gobbling away to glory When  she began to bore me with  her  calorie story
