You know you are addicted to Makeup when...

Addicted to BeautyImage via Wikipedia
Well, the blog's called Addicted to Blush, so I figured I'd share some tips with you so that you can also find out that you are addicted to makeup when......

#10: Every time you go to the mall, you stop by the skincare / makeup counters

#9: The staff at these counters knows you by name. 

#8: For your B'day, anniversaries & festivals, you accept only gifts of makeup / skincare; you have even researched non-traditional holidays & are known to invent occasions to weasel gifts from loved ones. 

#7. You start to exhibit crack head like behaviors when purchasing new products.
First you ask the girl in the counter "You got that new.... Then you proceed to clasp the product with both hands before swatching. You quickly put the money on the counter and run out of the store without a bag or the receipt.

#6. You are now to the point where you have to hide your purchases because at first everyone thought you were doing good things to yourself, but now everyone thinks you're crazy.

#5. You get really excited when you read a new product review, and then realize that you have the product already.

#4. You read the product review, get really excited, rush to the store, exhibit crack head like behavior (point no 7) & get the product only to realize when you get home that you already have it.  

#3. You start referring to products you love as your babies / puppies & refuse to choose the best out of them as it would be unfair to the rest. 

#2. You have back ups. "Out of stock" is bad enough, but "Discontinued" now that is an unforgivable curse.  

#1.  You spent all of your grocery money on makeup & skincare products so you reason with yourself that you and your family can consume some of them because they contain natural ingredients.

So, how addicted are you? :)

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…
