I'm back from my trip to Punjab. It was amazingly cold there, after a long time I had the opportunity to layer my trench coats & winter scarves - I enjoyed it tremendously. The food there was amazing - especially in my village where everything (Cauliflower & potatoes) had been harvested that morning to prepare our lunch. The curd was fresh & thick. The carrots were so red & so sweet - everything was organic & so yummy. The air was fresh, the water clean.
In fact I completely neglected my skin during this trip - no sunscreen, no day moisturiser, just this Neutrogena scrub & a dab of cold cream at night - my skin was glowing - no dryness, no acne - nothing. I had forgotten my foundation here in mumbai during the last minute packing frenzy - I was so worried - what would I wear for the wedding functions - But my skin behaved so well that I probably would have skipped it in any case.
But as soon as I was back in Mumbai - my skin began to react weirdly - it got dry around my cheeks & felt rough to touch, overnight I now have a new pimple on my forehead. I was very disappointed - what is the point of living in India's money capital if our quality of life (food, air, water) is so horrendous. People who live in modest towns in Punjab seem to be eating much better food that me.
Their lives are simpler, cleanser & more wholesome. *Sigh*.
But enough with my rant. the point I want too make here is for all those of my readers who live in smaller towns & feel like they are losing out on bigger brands & new launched - you don't need any of it - what you have is far more valuable than us - we will never be able to buy clean fresh air, or wholesome food here in mumbai no matter how much we pay - you guys have the stuff that lays the foundation to a healthy mind & body - so cherish it :D
Reviews will start again from tomorrow - my Lappie is still reeling under a viral attack so I might have to use standard images. Please bear .
How have you gals been?
