Spring-Summer launches from Clinique India

 

Hi everyone! Yesterday I attended the launch of the new Clinique Fresh pressed system and BIY Blend it yourself pigment drops at Verbena, Lower Parel. The setting and ambiance was so lovely with lots of light and greenery, I thought I’d share a few pictures from the launch with you.

The Fresh pressed range has 2 products – a powder cleanser that comes in one-time use satchets and a Vitamin C Booster Emulsion that you can add to your moisturizer for powerful anti-ageing and brightening benefits. The new launch in makeup this season are the BIY pigment drops that allow you to create a custom coverage base product, with the texture of your choice. It reminds me of the CoverFX Custom Cover drops! There’s also a new mascara which once again plays to the custom theme, you can basically vary the amount of product picked up by the wand to get a natural or dramatic look. I’ll be reviewing all these products once I’ve had the chance to try them out for a few weeks. Happy weekend!

Home Remedies to remove Tan and Sunburn

 

Its no secret that the Indian summers can be very harsh and unforgiving. No matter how much we try to protect ourselves from the sun, we end up getting a little bit of tan in the summers. And if you’ve been on a vacation, you’re sure to come back with a tan that makes your skin look ashy and dull for weeks to come! Today I’m sharing some of my tried and tested home recipes that can help you get rid of tan and sunburn with minimal expense!

1. Freshly grated potato

Grate a potato and squeeze the grated bits to extract the juice. Apply this juice all over the affected area using a cotton ball and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. This will give instant relief from sunburn and help remove tan within a few days of regular use. Potato juice contains an enzyme called catecholase that is known to lighten mild skin discoloration. My mum swears by this home remedy!

 

2. Lemon-Yogurt Mask

Lemons are a powerful source of Vitamin C (present as Ascorbic acid) which is one of the best known ingredients for brightening skin and removing dark spots. Vitamin C is also needed by the body for producing collagen. Yogurt contains lactic acid which is an alpha-hydroxy acid and aids exfoliation by removing dead skin cells. The combination of this potent brightening agent with a natural exfoliator helps in lightening sun-induced spots and with regular use, you would notice a glow on your skin. Some people like to dab fresh lemon juice directly on the skin but I find it a harsh and drying in its pure form. Mixing it with yogurt makes it more tolerable on the skin and you get the goodness of the lactic acid as well. If you have access to fresh buttermilk, use that instead of yogurt. Buttermilk contains 3-4% lactic acid while yogurt only contains ~ 1%.
