Vitamin E reduxImage by selva via Flickr
Get ready. I am going to now share with you a secret to reverse months of carelessness that you may have inflicted on your skin overnight.

Is your skin dull? dry? rough?

Try the all new Vitamin E (read up on the wonderful benefits of applying Vitamin E on skin here)Intensive Face Serum, to replace dull, dry skin with soft, moist, glowing skin. The all new complex treatment that you can do in the comfort of your home.

Ok, I should snap out of my tv advertisement mode now.

Don't get scared by the fancy name. This is a very, very simple method.

The Vitamin E Intensive Overnight face serum.

1. Buy Evion Capsules (400 mg) with Wheatgerm oil (.100 mg) & Omega - 3 fatty acids (Merck Pharma, costs Rs. 60 for 10 capsules) OR if you perfer to be natural just substitute with Wheatgerm or Almond oil (Rogan Badam Shirin is good)

2. Puncture the capsule. You need 6 drops only. Place rest of capsule in closed container in freezer for later use.

3. Wet face with Rose water or just plain water

4. Apply Oil all over clean face. Mind you, this will be sticky, and may smell bad.

5. Rub it in well.

6. Apply few drops Rose water / water again all over face and rub it in.

7. Tuck yourself into bed & sleep well

8. Wake-up in morning & marvel in mirror on new, improved complexion.

As always do a patch test on arm if you have sensitive or acne prone skin. Your skin is your responsibilty.

  1. Hi tanveer..just went through this post..wanted to clarify that these Evion tablets and Omega 3 capsules need to be mixed...and then applied right??And how often shd one do this...

  2. @Priyanka: No you don't have to mix the two.. See you get these Evion gelatin capsules (which contain both wheatgerm oil & Omega 3 oils.. Read the component list).. You just need to puncture the capsule from one end and apply the oil (2-3 drops) to the entire face.

    I think once a week is enough, but frankly usage is up to you, however frequently you like it.

  3. hi tanveer
    is it ok to use this for an oily skin?

  4. @Shika: Vit E is oil soluble only, hence all E Serums will be oil based. If using oil breaks you out you could dilute this with rosewater or plain water - add 2-3 drops of the Vit E to 2 tablespoons of Rosewater and use as a toner. This should deliver some benefits as well as help avoid breakouts :)

  5. can i add vit. C (celin 500mg) also to vit.E serum?

    ReplyDelete
  6. @Anon: You should be able to. Though I would suggest making a solution of Vit C and then adding a few drops of vit E to it before using it. I have used it like this in the past :)

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…
