Winter Care

winter-care-tip-3

Bring out all those oils and the deep moisturising lotions¬†Winter is here. Everything is cold and everything is dry, From hair to nails. Every part needs more TLC this season. And the irony is we don’t feel like anything this season. All we want to do is snuggle and stay under the blankets warm.

Usually I have a very basic skin care, In winters i kind of take extra care for my skin and hair. I am sharing some of the things I do in these winters.

For hair : If you have read my earlier posts you would have understood by now, my love for oils. I oil my hair before washing. I have fine and wavy hair so I am not much experimental with hair care products.

I dont change my shampoo for winters. I continue using the same. I do go for Head massages if i get a chance.I love the pamper.

I use the Hair masks mostly the moisturizing DIY’s (¬†Hair Masks¬†).

I dont use the conditioner as it makes my hair weighed down next day itself. hence the Oil treatments and hair masks. I do use hair serum though.

Face : Usually the same routine, nothing much is changed. Except for almond oil massages.

I wash my face and use a gentle scrub, warm the oil and massage the oil gently and wipe it of with warm wet towelettes. I do this once in a week.

Body : I don’t moisturize my body much I am way too lazy to do it. Ok I am not proud of it. I am so used to not doing it, I don’t even realise i missed it. Thanks to the Body scrubs. It keeps my body enough moisturized. At least it does not dry out my skin. But If I notice the dry patches I go full on applying the body lotion all over my body for the next few days.

Hands and Feet : This I am very proud to say I have the softest hands and feet in winters than compared to all the other seasons. Reason, Petroleum Jelly. Yes. I wear socks in winter, so I apply a thick coat of gel on my feet and wear socks and massage the gel nicely onto my hands. I apply this on my elbows or on very dry patches for quick relief.

You don’t need a whole army of expensive products to survive this season. Few basic things are good enough to ¬†face the weather.

I do get break outs in winter but i get them through out the year too. So relax, wrap up and enjoy this cold winters.

Do share your winter care in the comments.

Revlon colorstay –  Red carpet #120
Price : Rs.  350/- for 11.7ml
I love Nail paints.  One thing I never run out of from my vanity are the nail paints.  I bought this nail paint a while ago by mistake.  I was looking for a bright  pink color and under those store lights this looked like pink to me :mrgreen:.  Though I was glad I picked this up but after couple it fades even though you put a topcoat over.  And the faded color makes my fingers dark which I absolutely don’t like. The staying power is long as it claims on the bottle. I wish they made it this long wear without the color fading.
It is quite a disappointment for that price.

Deve Herbes – Coconut oil

I wanted to get an organic coconut oil to use for skin and hair. And I found this on Amazon. Lets see how it worked?.

Price : Rs 295/- for 100ml

The Benefits :

IMG_20151110_144417

How do I like it ?

It is transparent and feels light.

It soaks into the skin instantly and non sticky.

Has nice mild coconut smell.
Skin feels smooth and moisturized.

The only thing i dont like about it is, i would have preferred the oil in smaller quantities, it would have been easier for me to take it around. Otherwise I like everything about it.

If you want to buy coconut oil, Invest in a good organic cold pressed oil. Little lasts long.

And I did a post on Beauty benefits of coconut oil. You can find it here ( Click here )

Caviar Manicure – DIY

Hello there!!! ¬†How are you all doing? How is your week coming along? Mine is going on crazy busy. After a long time. I started reading again. this time its ¬†“Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand. If you know the book, you would would know how busy one can get with it.I always wanted to read it but the small print kept me away.

Today’s post is a simple Nail art DIY. It is called “Caviar Manicure”. No, it is not the manicure done with real caviar ūüėõ its the caviar looking like beads. Caviar beads are the tiny beads which are put on the nail and made pretty.¬†You can buy the beads from online or in any crafts store. They come in small tins or tiny bottles.

I got mine from Itsy -bitsy and i bought these for a crafts project but you know how mind works sometimes. I wanted to try them and love the outcome.

Lets see how its done

IMG_20150903_145739

Apply the base coat and paint your nails with any color you like.

Now put on a thick coat of nail paint

Sprinkle the caviar beads on the still wet nail directly from the bottle or with your fingers.

Wipe off the extra beads and press the beads that are stuck on the nails gently.

Repeat the same, for the rest of the nails or the ones you wanted. (Use a sheet or bowl underneath as the beads can go all over the place while applying).

When its dried, apply the top coat and seal it off.

Thats it, your Caviar manicure is done.

If you cannot find the beads you can replace them with Table salt / Refined Sugar and the effect is the same.

This manicure lasts for couple of days and is not practical. It comes off if the nails are rubbed or if you do domestic chores.

All in all its fun and to try it out because it hardly takes anytime and get creative with it.
