Milk is a wonderful beauty ingredient found in every kitchen. The lactic acid commonly found in milk is effective in cleansing the skin, reducing fine lines and removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, no wonder why Cleopatra was a fan of milk bath

1 MILK and ROSEWATER

this is a simple pack but very effective

chilled milk 1/2 cup

rose water   2 tbsp

cotton ( cut into square shape)

Mix rosewater with milk . dip the cotton into  chilled milk, squeeze out the extra milk then apply it on your eyes for at least 30 min. easy peasy

it lightens the dark circle and refreshes eyes

2 Milk and Honey

another easy mask. we need

milk powder 2 tsp

honey 1 tsp

mix both ingredients and apply under the eyes, very moisturizing, and yes helps to lighten dark circle

Transform your summer body lotion into winter BL

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.

from this

to

this

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

to drink or not to drink

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.

cheap and easy lip makeup remover

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

eye lash growth serum

hey everyone!

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

cotton hydrating mask

many of you might have seen Michelle’s Phan DIY Hydrating Cotton Masks!.

http://www.michellephan.com/post/diy-cotton-mask-tutorial-bonus-pics-and-instructions

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

what to do with old or unused keys ?

i really love vintage keys. but here i’ll talk about usage of old and unused keys

  1. wear it – i love a key pendant. you can either use it in
     necklace –  decorate the key with some bling or paint it, it looks really great and funky
         
 bracelet– add charm on your bracelet by adding a key
earring –  aren’t they amazing
ring–  yes believe me
2. frame it –  yes as a photo frame.  cheap , vintage and cool
3. hang it– make a key mobile or a wind chime and hang it in your garden. the sound effect is awesome
4. hook ’em up – see below
5. weight–  i mean paper weight
you can  use a single key as a paper weight , or you an attach some heavy thing or you can stack flat keys one on one and glue them altogether and then use them.
there are other uses too.  see below
