Hi there everyone! I have been meaning to write this post way before, a long ago i could even remember(ahem.. i got carried away). actually , i started this transformation thing 2 years ago. it was very chilly here, no sign of sun, the cold wind made the skin dry and rough, i dared not to step out of the house, sat in front of my heater all the time, wearing 5-6 layers of warm clothes, drinking hot coffee, and then something happened that change my life (errrr.. i exaggerated) wow it sounds like a mystery novel, so where was I, yes Actually my mom went for shopping (yes my mom can go for shopping anytime, even if the tsunami is coming) and and and omg.. she bought me a summer body lotion ( i mean how could she, she is a woman, doesn’t a woman know that there are different bl for different seasons) well then she refused to go back to the shop and change it so dishearteningly i began to use the BL, but that wasn’t very effective, so i added few things and viola! it was giving great results.
so here is actually the recipe( for a small batch, one time use)
your summer BL 2 Tbsp
olive oil 1 tsp
vitamin E capsule 3
your favorite essential oil (optional) 4-5 drops (i use lemon oil )
the method is real simple. puncture the vitamin capsule and mix the gel with the BL, add olive and essential oil, mix you can use chopstick to mix, i used a very important tool, my finger.
this mixture works better than any other bl ( that’s what i feel)
I tried doing the same with Vaseline coco one ( winter BL) it is also great too (fells like body butter) it moisturizes skin very well that you don’t need anything for two to three days.
you can store this up to 3 weeks easily, even more than that
and yes i also know how to transform the winter Bl to summer BL, which i will write in my next post, till then have fun and do write if you made it and liked or disliked
There is no person in this world (yes, men and women both) who doesn’t want a clear, flawless radiant skin. we are always in constant search for the lotion, potions secret recipes to make skin glow like any model or actress. we buy so many costly products that have so many darn chemicals in them. well don’t worry so much coz i have an easy recipe for this purpose
here are the ingredients required:
one fresh strawberry
1 tsp baking soda
yep that’s it
now mash the strawberry, add BS and then apply allover your face and neck for 15 min. washing it is the only part which causes trouble coz it sticks to the skin
if you have sensitive skin don’t apply it
whatever left can be used to whiten teeth (yes it is the best method to whiten teeth)
apply this mask not more than 3 times a week

hey everyone! i am in a dilemma at the moment, i am confused and I am sure many of us had been confused about to drink milk or not to drink. I researched on internet about it, the beauty blogs and sites says that one should avoid milk and dairy products coz it tends to breakout of the skin, but on health blogs it is written that one should drink milk to strengthen bones and avoid osteoporosis(is a disease of bones that leads to an increased risk of fracture). well I think I should start to drink milk because you can treat acne but it is not easy to get back the bone density. even doctors say that bones grow up till 35 year so I have years to avoid this problem. what do you think? comment here.
last night, when i came back home half asleep, i started the process of removing my makeup, i was kinda shocked as my makeup remover bottle was empty. Sigh 😦 ( why was I when i knew it was about to end? ). so now confused i started thinking and came to an idea of removing my makeup with baby oil, that was great, but unfortunately my lipstick was a stay long, long lasting effect type, not easily removed, so i decided (in a very sad mood) to sleep with my lipstick on, but before sleeping i applied vaseline as i do daily at night, and to my surprise my lipstick came off and even my lips were soft and so were the corner of my lips ( i know it s the problem of many). so now i have found the easy and cheap lipstick remover which is available very easily.
i ❤ it
i like this mask very much as it is two in one. it tighten as well as smoothen the skin and the pores are cleansed very well. you will feel a more radiant skin after this mask
here is the method:
red lentil powder- 2tbsp
lemon juice- 1 tsp
raw milk- 1 tbsp
honey and rosewater ( optional)
mix all the ingredients. apply on the face. when it dries completely, wet the mask and scrub it and then rinse your face with lukewarm water. and tada! glowing skin.
i apply nearly everyday, but you should use according to your requirement
if allergic to any ingredients dont use
its been quite long since i have written a beauty post. i know i am not consistently writing my posts, but from now on i would try to write atlest one post a day,
so here it is:
fullers earth face mask
it is a mask for oily skin and its effective
fullers earth- 1 tbsp
rose water- 2 tbsp
lemon juice- 1 tsp
honey -1 tsp
mix all the ingredients well. honey is used to moisturize. you can use if you like.
apply the mask on your face till it dries. then wash face with lukewarm water. then apply moisturizer

yesterday, while shopping i saw a girl and i wasn’t able to get my eyes off her eyes. now don’t take me wrong, actually the reason behind this was her beautiful and long eye lashes. mine are small and thin. i complimented her and asked about her lashes. she told me a secret recipe that i am surely going to try, but before that i want to share something which is about eye lash growth serum. i think nearly every girl have heard about it. i tried one but it gave me irritation and itching so i threw it away. growth serum suits very less people. i dont really want to use chemicals on my eyes. and i don’t believe these serum works
Some of the commonly reported side effects associated with using eyelash extending serums include, brown pigmentation of the iris (!) itching, redness and general irritation.
Slathering your face in chemicals may not be beneficial to your long term health or beauty.
Most eyelash serums contain moisturising ingredients which make the lashes shinier and more healthy looking. but for a short period of time.
now the secret recipe
olive oil – 1 tbsp
castor oil – 1 tbsp
and almond oil – 1 tbsp
mix these altogether. keep in a bottle. and every night before sleeping apply with a mascara brush.
see, olive oil has nourishing property and almond as well as castor oil help in growth and thickening.
# if you are allergic to any of these ingredients, dont use
ok not my original but i liked it and love to share it
Avocado Face Freshener:
(for two faces, for one rinse)
Avocado pulp – about 3 to 4 tablespoons
Besan (gram flour) – about a tablespoon
Turmeric – about half teaspoon
Take avocado pulp in a small cup. With a sturdy spoon mash to smooth. Add besan and turmeric. Combine thoroughly without any lumps. Apply on your face generously. Stay green for about 15 to 30 minutes and then rinse for a happy glow. Relaxing thing to do on a lazy weekend
people having oily skin, do you find your skin more oily when you use a scrub of any company? well its the case with me, so i decided to make my own scrub ad it worked very well. here is the recipe
wheat or gram flour – 2 tbsp
rice flour- 1 tbsp
turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
lemon juice – 1 tbsp
rosewater- acc to requirement
mix all the ingredients and make a paste of it. apply like any other scrub
# i use it on my whole body. it makes my skin soft and supple and non oily.
# if you have allergy with any of the ingredients don’t use
many of you might have seen Michelle’s Phan DIY Hydrating Cotton Masks!.
i am sure you’ve find it very interesting but some of you including me doesn’t have the skin conditioner to soak the cotton pads. but do not worry. for the cotton mask you can use cucumber or tomato juice or even milk instead of the skin conditioner. those with oily skin can use lemon juice. it will surely give the refreshing feeling
