Shreya Asks:

I am an absolutely no make up person like you were but i guess Indian weddings(mine about to come next year) bring out the love for make up for most girls πŸ˜› lol ..

For me even a plain face powder makes me feel i am stuck inside something πŸ™‚ so u can understand my chaos over this … besides I always had an acne prone Combination Oily Acne prone skin for which i
had to check my dermatologist and then after 3 months of his treatment some patches of my face were left dry with SCARS :(:( and rest as usual oily ..

Anyways over the time I got used to only a few basic products (himalaya neem face wash , lacto calamine classic and nivea lip balm, himalaya shampoo conditioner..) for daily routine that kept me away from pimples (like 1 pimple in 1 month.. thats way less for someone who is prone to acne :P,acne gone but scars left πŸ™ )…

So i am avid believer of a healthy skin than any make up . Anyways back to square one πŸ™‚ I might (no date fixed) have my marriage next year end so was going through google to search for some healthy practices of skin and hair (also tini winne make up πŸ˜› .. healthy practices work slowly na thats y ) and stumbled into your blog πŸ™‚ and I am happy i did your blog is slowly giving me confidence that I too can use some good make up on my skin πŸ™‚

rati beauty diet plans

I have a small request. I wish if you can help me with some everyday skin and hair practices or recommend some products for them(like cleansing toning moisturizer etc bridal care over the period
) that I can try for a healthier glow over the period of time according to my skin type…

  1. Shreya, there are two things i firmly believe in .

    1. Eat Healthy. It’s like if you eat a pakora, it would show on your face. However if you eat fruits and veggies, that would also show the health of your skin. DO take care of your diet, you’ll have healthy glow on your face naturally.

    2. Skin care. Include regular mud packs. Don’t go off to sleep with your makeup on – NO MATTER WHAT. Follow the cleansing toning, moisturizing routine twice a day.

    You can break vitamin E Capsule and rube the liquid on your face. Vit E is known to reduce scars. However since you get your skin checked by derma , do take his advice.

    Aloe vera is another amazing natural product that helps in reducing scars. You can directly rub the aloe vera gel on your face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes and then wash off.

    Hope that helps. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks rati i’d ask my derma about vit E capsules πŸ™‚

      and i have just started rubbing aloe vera daily on face morning and night but i dont wash it off rather wait till it gets absorbed and then apply my regular lacto calamine πŸ™‚ lets see within how many days it shows effect …

      and rahi pakoron ki baat then ahhhmm hmm ya i love fried things but i dont eat them very offen my mom wont let me eat then infact she just started making me do PRANAYAMS πŸ™ ahh ya veggies is little less on my side and green chillies lot more but since i need healthier skin its better i get habituated to greeny greeny things πŸ˜›

      Thanks for everything .. πŸ™‚

  2. 1. Drink at least 3 litres of water everyday.
    2. If you are anemic/tend to eat outside more/love fried or junk food; it is advisable to take iron and vitamin supplements. Talk to your doctor about this.
    3. Do not resort to use of steroids even if your dermatologist prescribes it. Google acne for steroids and you’ll get lot of info..

    Water is the safest and sureshot way to control acne. :toothygrin:

    1. hey Mrunmayee,

      trust me i DONOT EAT OUTSIDE im such a good child πŸ™ i hardly eat outside but yes i have to be honest I love Green chillies and tend to eat 2 at a time πŸ˜› i guess that shows on face but i have stopped even that so acne is quiet in control the problem is more of scars ….

      Guess what today morning i went to seek second opinion from another dermatologist CUM parlor wali…
      she told me do skin peeling and skin polishing i’m not happy with the answer she sounded so eager karlo karlo types that it made me wonder if you should ever go into such treatments just on the advise of someone…

      Any opinions over this IMBB?? Do you think skin peeling and polishing have any effect ?

  3. congrats for ur upcoming wedding :waytogo: :waytogo:
    in addition to the above suggestions , have nariyal paani daily WITHOUT FAIL, and maybe u could apply a little nariyal paani on acne scars, its slow but definitely works. and also try having one mug green tea daily , it will just make ur skin glow. πŸ˜€

    1. hey Naina

      Thank you for your wishes… and hmm coconut water .. i need to find a coconut wala now πŸ™‚ for suppling coconuts πŸ™‚ till then i guess green tea is a good option πŸ˜› even my derma told me ki avoid milk that causes oiliness but kya karun yaar .. how can you work without tea or coffee πŸ™ head starts hitting hard πŸ™
      anywz i never thought of green tea though , shall give it a try for a week. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for reply πŸ™‚

      1. Its really amazing Shreya!! I have switched over from regular tea to green tea now, and believe me – I can feel the difference. Green tea works so wonderfully in detoxification process. It even helps me stay at peace, apart from its various health benefits. If you don’t like green tea as it is because of its bitter taste – try squeezing some lemon into it. It really tastes great, and I love to have it. :hugleft: :hughright: :highfive: :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: :haanji: :haanji:

        1. Calijiii if your green tea is bitter you are over steeping it (green tea should not be bitter – do not infuse for more than 2 min tops and that too the water should be just under boiling and not actually boiling water)

              1. LOL thank god at least you dont call me all those datteee names :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

                Me sugar in coffee junkie – but Green tea should taste very mild ki you can have it n it almost most seens like having flavoured water u know .. oh and you can totally put honey in green tea, like its not how the chinese drink green tea but u can do that πŸ˜›

                Oh and also look for vanilla green tea, you might like it :victory: :victory: :victory: :victory: :victory:

                1. hey janhavi πŸ™‚
                  thanks yaar honey is some relief i guess ekdum bina sugar made me so upset i wanted to add sugar to it desperately πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯

                  i’d try with honey and widout honey but pehle net pe green tea banane ka method to dhundne do πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ wo bhi nahi aata πŸ™‚

                  btw thanks to both you and cali for your reply πŸ™‚

          1. yap cali i guess everyone is suggesting me the same thing so i should go ahead with this green tea πŸ™‚ though i guess i would put some sugar into it πŸ™‚ i cannot do without sugar AT ALL :snicker: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: (i dont know if im putting right or wrong smileys they are so cute i feel like placing them in my comment even if they are not needed … πŸ˜‰ thanks to rati )

  4. congrats Shreya , my wedding is also next year
    the below are the things i follow

    6- 8 hours beauty sleep – this will show on ur skin
    loads of water , (i have dry skin and i gulp down lotta coffees, so to keep a balance)
    CTM (cleanse- tone – moisture )twice a day ,
    scrubs twice a week :))
    facial /face clean up at parlour once a month

    1. hey Veena congrats to you too πŸ™‚

      so good to have people riding on the same boat πŸ™‚

      ya i do the sleep regime, but scrubs are a big problem for me i have combo Tzone oily kinda skin whichever scrub i use breaks me out for saving myself from those breakout i prefer scrubbing once a week with home made pack of multani mitti chandan rose water and when its dry i scrub slightly on my blackhead prone areas then close my pores with rubbing tomato slice…. that keeps me away from breakouts and keep pimple free πŸ™‚

      i have oily skin .. my derma even suggested doing without milk i said LIKE WHAT 😯 😯 i love my milk dont keep me away from it face thik karne ke chakkar me i’d loose my bones πŸ˜› pataphi my doc he agreed ki ok but less oil in food πŸ™‚ i said yap yap :):)

      anyways i’d drink lotsa water that i can promise :blush: :blush:

      thanks for reply dear πŸ™‚

    1. Haan Sonam
      I am using sunscreen given by my derma its FORTE ka SUNBAN SPF 50+ BROAD SPECTRUM works great for me πŸ™‚ doesnt break me out (bz i put it over my lacto calamine) … just is a bit over the top costly arnd 350 RS 😯 but anyways keeping something good in hand is imp na than regret later :):)

      btw Thanks for reply πŸ™‚

  5. Heeee Heeee I :heart: Green tea … but seriously – up to 4 cups a day = very good for your health, as green tea is full of anti-oxidants and of course great for your metabolism :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    As for acne scars – Vit e oil is good yes but I swear the one thing thats magic for acne scarring is coconut oil (the shudh edible types) … apply at night for moisturised glowing pimple free skin and in a few months the scars will go too … trust me it sounds horrid and weird but the oil really helps control pimples and heal the scars and it wont make your skin oily or anything – just wash off properly in the morn

    if this is too disgusting – this is my moms anti-scar face pack

    dahi and haldi ka paste … apply on face wait till its almost dry … then instead of washing off … strart rubbing it … its will kind of create those things that come when u use an eraser … so its kinds of scrubs off all dead skin and helps reveal nice new clean skin underneath …. and of course no need to mention the benefits of haldi … once uve rubbed it all off (no water) .. if there is a slight yellow cast just wash with a mixture of besan paste for super smooth, clean glowing skin – do this like once a week and see the difference :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

    Best of luck for your wedding :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. Thanks a ton dear πŸ™‚

      i guess i’d give that Dahi and haldi wala mixture a try this week itself πŸ™‚

      btw i too wanted to use vit E bz i dont have access to the SHUDH SHUDH types coconut oil and cannot risk with one available in market πŸ™ also im a bit scared isnt coconut oil going to be too oily for my already oily t zone ??? :pain:

      anyways can you suggest me which brands Vit E .. in an article here i read about Evion Vit E .. is it over the counter drug
      and how many drops of Vit E oil be applied ???

      I know too many questions but do reply πŸ™‚ thanks agn πŸ™‚

      1. Hey just grab those edible vit e capsules from the pharmacy and pierce it – use the oil of one capsule for ur face :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

        also the coconut oil wont make ur face oily – i have fully oily skin and over time its actually helped reduce oilyness ….

        try it na for a week – what you have to lose ? if it doesnt work stop – it wont make u break out or anything – just use the edible parachute, thats fine :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

        oh n no sugar in green tea – it will reduce half the health benefits …honey – tht too like 1 teaspoon

        how to make = boil water – pour in mug … put tea bag in for 2 min … remove … add like 1 teaspoon honey and :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

  6. HAW Ratidooooo :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :finger :finger :finger :finger :finger :finger :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop: :poop:

  7. shreya there is an article here for pre wedding ritual…it is very good…do read dat n save dat..even if u do half of d thgs..u wud be good to go..
    yes vit E would help,lemon n honey mixture would help n also just curd as d lactic acid would also help in lightening skin..
    u can also try d biotique coconut cream for scars..theres a review here..
    hope dat helped..:))

    1. Searching searching that pre wedding ritual :):) and would also read coconut milk cream review .. but will the coconut milk cream work for oily acne prone skin ?

      and now about lemon and honey, i did try lemon before on my skin its pretty harsh on my skin it dried the places where i had applied it so discontinued it rather used tomato slice its less harsher. though i think curd might help so might think of using it in mixture πŸ™‚

      Thanks for all your suggestions dear πŸ™‚

      1. Shreya the article dat Bhumika is talkin about is the one for which Rati has given u the link above….do check it…. :toothygrin:

        1. Arey Farha πŸ™‚ thats what i thought bhumika made me run through archives and i wasnt able to find pre wedding ritual
          i chked it already and its great im picking up a few points of her and would combine it into my daily routine :):)

            1. Hey ya farha I have got so many suggesstions that it will take me at least 2-3 weeks to try them all πŸ˜› lol ..
