For Biotique Fans - Daily ritual for skin & hair

For those of you who are Biotique fans (like me) here is a an excerpt from the founder Vinita Jain's interview in India Today. She has given a easy to follow schedule using biotique products. I have used some of the products she has mentioned in the article. I will be posting my reviews about them shortly.

For great skin Set apart three minutes in the morning and evening for your skin.

Ageing begins as early as 20. You need to start caring about your skin, before time runs out:

Daily Rituals: a) Cleanse with honey gel in the morning. It contains pure honey blended with extracts from the bark of the Arjun tree, euphorbia plant and wild turmeric.

And double it up in the evening with a Berberry lotion. It has berberry, sandalwood, fenugreek, lodhra ba
rk and almond oil.

b) Vitalise with the dandelion face vitaliser for both morning and evening. It is rich in Vitamin E and minerals. The nutmeg oil content in it helps ease wrinkles.

c) Nourish with morning nectar in the morning. It’s a light emulsion enriche
d with honey, wheatgerm and seaweed. It replaces the oil and moisture lost by the skin everyday.

And use saffron youth dew in the evening. It’s rich in saffron, almond, pistachio oils and has extracts of turmeric.

d) Use carrot cream for protection against the sun. It has carrot oil, carrot seed, quince seed, aloevera gel and lodhra bark.

For damaged hair

Daily Rituals:

a) Cleanse with henna leaf. It thickens the hair and adds gloss.

Or soya protein, which is a combination of soya bean protein, berberry and wild turmeric extracts that helps undo damage caused by perming and dying.

b) Massage with bhringraj oil. It’s an ancient formula with bhringraj, butea frondosa, amla and centella blended in coconut oil and goat milk. It seeps into hair shafts and nourishes the scalp.

c) Vitalise the hair with mountain ebony. It has extracts of long pepper, glycyrrhiza and euphorbia that strengthen the roots and doesn’t make the hair greasy.

d) Conditioning with water cress. It has the extracts of pineapple, tomato, carrot, aloevera, cucumber and lemon that add shine and strength.

Do you have a dialy ritual that consists of products only from a specific line? or have you used any of the products above? Do share your thoughts with me..

Untill then stay pretty..

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.

Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…
