This year sees a definite shift in nails with drugstore and high-end brands bringing out matte enamels.
Why it works: The reason for this is because a lot of bright make-up is au courant; a matte finish on nails prevents the look from going over the top. You can use the matte texture on the entire nail and a shiny polish in the same hue just on the tips, for a reverse French manicure.
Matte nail shades
Liquid lipstick has been around for a while but has been shelved into the gloss category because of it’s in between textures. Today’s products move way ahead with vivid color and soft, long-lasting wear.
Why it works: You can use them because they provide bright color and a variety texture, and unlike traditional matte lipsticks, they feel supremely hydrating.

For years women have worn and enjoyed gloss with a single gripe: it doesn’t last. Of late, all that is changing with Continue reading “Revamp your beauty with Gel-based Make-up!!!” »
Your partner’s weight – not his sparkling eyes or sense of humor – may have been what drew you to him, finds research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Couples tend to share similar body fat levels when they meet – and are likely to stay that way over the years. Similarly other research shows that if one partner improves his/her habits, the other may follow suit. Here are 13 lifestyle tips to be healthy together.
Motivate and reward
Be it the extra inches around the waist or a belly, it’s important to not shame your partner over his body. Start by talking about fitness and adding that both of you need to dedicate some time to exercise everyday for a long and healthy life together. Set small goals like scheduling a run three times a week or losing 2 kilos, and reward each other for the hard work with a thoughtful gift. A reward system works well to stay on track. Also track your progress on your smart phone or tablet with apps like Nike+ Running, My fitness Pal or Calorie Counter. You could even start a Continue reading “10 simple and super effective ways to live healthy ever after.” »
The night routine for your skin care is necessarily different from the morning routine.
The first step of cleansing remains the same but the second step I recommend is exfoliation for all skin types, except sensitive skin.
beauty is skin deep
This literally means ‘skin stripping’. It is an important step in skin renewal and gives you visibly glowing skin after about a month of usage. Chemical exfoliation is different from using physical scrubs like the walnut or apricot scrubs which are available in the market. Chemical exfoliating agents work at a Continue reading “Skin Care for Evening Time !” »
There is no escaping the fact that skin is an external organ, what we physically put or don’t put on it also contributes to the way our skin looks and feels. If you look around you, you will find that every person’s skin looks very different in appearance and texture. We also know that there are different skin types which account for differences in oiliness, dryness and other skin attributes.
We are all busy with our daily lives and a common complaint I hear is that ‘I don’t have so much time to spend on my skin’. But your skin care routine should not into your busy schedule or be so enormously time-consuming that only a dedicated few can devote time towards it. All it requires is 20 minutes of your time, 10 minutes in the morning and 10 in the evening. If you are really pushed for time you can even reduce it to 5 minutes in the morning and 15 at bedtime. This is what I call the AM PM plan for beautiful, naturally glowing skin.
skin care – cleansing
Begin your skin cleansing routine every morning by cleansing your skin well.
Cleansing is necessary for skin of every type. What really differs, if at all, could be the kind of cleanser you use. As a general rule, soaps are best avoided for cleansing facial skin. A soap-free face wash is ideal for this purpose.
If you have oily to normal skin, it is best to use a mild, non-perfumed, medicated cleanser like Cetaphil cleanser, Neutrogena deep cleanser, etc. There is no particular advantage to Continue reading “Skin Care for Morning Time” »
