3 Perfections Tag!

Anju from Indianmakeupways tagged me to do this post on what I think are my imperfections & perfections.

3 imperfections

Image Source

1.      My hair: I wish they were more healthy & had more volume. Hairfall has been an eternal problem. They are rather like a problem child – the hair itself is dry but my scalp gets oily within a day of washing – even when I skip conditioner. Plus it never stays in place, I always look like a cyclone just spit me out. I am trying out a home made Reetha – Amla – Shikakai treatment now. Hopefully it will work out.

2.      My high forehead: I have a big forehead, some people say it is sign of intelligence & luck, but I find it too big – I wish I could get some bangs to cover them, but thanks to the fact that my hair is scanty especially in the front it is a bit of a problem – or maybe my hair stylist is not that good. :-P

3.      My forever dry lips: I cannot go without lip balm for even an hour – my lips will start to chap & as we all know that is horrendous. You cannot wear lipstick, lip gloss – anything on chapped lips. I always gotta have a lip balm on me

My 3 perfections (or rather what I like about myself)

1.      My skin: It is pretty well behaved, not sensitive, doesn’t break out easily, is even toned, hardly any dark circles. I like it :)

2.      My eyes: they are a deep green with a tinge of grey right now. They have changed color over the years, I started out with blue eyes as a kid and over the years they have darkened to green, they do help me stand out in a crowd, & even if all I use is mascara – they still attract attention :)

3.      My lack of, errr, body hair: ok, I know this will sound weird, but I hardly have any hair on my arms & legs. I have never waxed, I generally use an epilator once a month, or else I have to shave like once in two weeks. I am done. Conversely my eyebrows grow like wild weeds.

Since the tag was both imperfections & perfections – I did both. But I honestly would like others to just do perfections. I think we spend too much time already analyzing what’s wrong with us, and sometimes when we have too much free time - we also keep analyzing only what is wrong or missing in others.

So I tag everyone – please tell me your perfections :)


  1. Lmao at 'wild weeds' and 'big forehead' haha :D. Oh this cheered me up T

  10. lovely Tanz ... have seen ur pics on fb and they r awesome :)
    lucky u :) no waxing needed

  11. No body hair? wow that's awesome.

    I agree that most people pay more attention to their imperfections rather than perfections. I had to thing really hard to find 3 perfections, but I'm still not 100% happy with them! But I find such tags interesting, esp the imperfections part, because it gives me an idea about how people see themselves.

Your eyes: smokey brown & so expressive, your smile is very cute & your hair is also looking very nice at the moment - like yr haircut!

    @Shoppingaholic: Hhehehe.. Thks :) Yes, I used to get a lot of attention as a kid - most ppl thought I was firang. Well, actually that still happens a lot to me, I routinely get asked "Are you a foreigner? Which country are you from?".. lol, it shocks them when I speak in Hindi to aswer their question

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…

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 …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.

For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
