Lakmé Fairness Sunscreen Cucumber & Lemon Grass After Sun Range - Preview

Just stepping out till the neighborhood café? Only going to be out in the sun till you enter your car? Enjoying drinking your morning tea by the window? Ever think about how even two minutes in the sun can damage your skin? Spots, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and tanning can all 
start with just two minutes in the sun.

UV Radiation from the sun is the chief cause of Sunburn, and other severe skin concerns like 
 melanoma, melasma and photoaging. UVB rays cause sun burn, which can be tackled by use of sunscreen (SPF content). UVA rays on the other hand are more damaging biologically. It can cause not just tanning, but wrinkling & leathering (photo aging), pigmentation and premature skin aging. To prevent this, you need a product with a good PA content.

Keeping both these concerns in mind, Lakmé offers a break-through innovation in sun care that is dermatologist-approved. The new Lakmé Sun Expert Cucumber & Lemongrass Fairness Sunscreen range offers broad spectrum sunscreen that gives you 97% protection from harmful effects of the sun. The sunscreens range from SPF 20 to SPF 50 and PA+, PA++ and PA+++ includes specific sunscreens for dry, oily and normal skin. Lakmé has also introduced Sun Expert Fairness Body Sunscreen Lotion with SPF 24 PA ++.

The new Lakmé Fairness Sunscreen Cucumber & Lemon Grass After Sun range offers a Skin Lightening Gel, Skin Lightening Mask, and Skin Lightening Face wash.

Dr.Wadhwani, Cosmetologist says “Exposure to the sun plays a pivotal role in causing age spots, sun-spots, wrinkles, changes in skin texture and skin cancers due to the harmful UV rays of the sun. UVA and UVB rays are harmful rays, both cause severe sun damage. While UVA rays penetrate more deeply into the skin and play a great role in premature ageing, it is also responsible for causing skin cancers. Therefore in addition to protecting your skin from the effects of UVB rays which pre-dominantly cause sun tan and sun burns it is highly recommended to look for a sunscreen which offers UVA protection as well.”  

Dr Wadhwani goes on to share her views about new Lakmé Fairness Sunscreen range, “The Lakmé Sun Expert is a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects the skin from both UVA and UVB Rays that give upto 97% protection from sun damage. It also contains protective vitamins and rich anti oxidants such as cucumber and lemongrass, to heal and repair sun damage. Both cucumber and lemongrass act as cooling agents to the skin- and heal the inflammation post sun damage and provide a calming effect to the skin.”

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…
