Daily Skin Care Routine

Growing up, one of the lessons I learnt from my mom was the importance of skincare. She always stresses on using natural things, like mud packs or keeping aside a slice of fruit for a natural face glow. I have extremely sensitive skin and occasional breakouts. And the acne-w(b)itch ( tooth fairy’s evil sister ) also leaves behind some blemishes every once in a while . I hate getting facials (I know – whatt?? ) and am paranoid about using chemical based products . Recently, I started using products from The Body Shop’s Tea Tree line and they seem to be helping my skin tremendously.


This really seems to keep the facial oils under control. I love its earthy smell and is has a nice cooling sensation. There’s a little tingling which makes me think that its really reaching the pores. My breakouts have definitely gone down since I started using this.
I don’t know if it is just a result of using this night lotion or the combination of other products – but the acne scars on my face have visibly started to lighten. You don’t know how happy that makes me !
I apply this after using the face-wash and love how lightweight this is. However, it does tend to leave a little bit of dryness ( if you have oily skin that might not be an issue ) – so I apply a small amount of my daily SPF moisturizer before stepping out. 
I almost never use face masks – just don’t like how they harden up on the skin and have to be scrubbed hard to be removed. But not this one. It remains soft even after 10 minutes of application and easily comes out with warm water, leaving the face feeling softer and nourished.
I think I am also going to give the Tea Tree Oil ( good for spot correction ) and the Pore Minimizer a try !
These products are organic ( and so much cheaper than some other popular products out there ) – if you find that these work for you, I’d recommend stocking up when there’s a sale.
PS : Some of you asked me to include links/recommendations for buying the looks or products in India.
The good news is – Body Shop has its Indian online shopping site, free shipping options are available and they have tons of  stores all over India.

Let’s Do It

Asos sweatshirt, Urban Outfitters skirt – similar 1//2, Forever21 tights – other bold colors 1//2,
Michael Kors tote – similar 1//2//3,  Alice + Olivia pumps – similar 1//

Once upon a time, there was a girl and a boy who made each other very happy. One day, he asked her if she would be his

 forever ! Her answer resonated with the innocence and simplicity of his question – Let’s Do It !

She did not need a ring, he did not have to go down on one knee – 
all she needed was the confidence in his eyes and all he needed was her by his side. 
Last week , I spotted this intriguing mesh of barren trees that stood amidst the snow fallen on the ground. It has been mind-numbingly cold here and that day was no different ( 5F ! ) I wanted to take him with me and knew it would need some real convincing to get him out for that hike. I asked him if he was up for it –  surprisingly all he said was – Let’s Do It –
 just like the way I said it 2 years back !

There are times when we think too much about things, about the consequences, about the what-ifs ! Sometimes the answer is to just do it, take a risk and enjoy what spontaneity has to offer. Chances are you’ll love that you took 

the plunge or atleast learn from it. 

 Do that one thing today, that you have been thinking about too much  – ask him out –  put that business idea into action – let them know you don’t agree with their decision – take that class you always wanted to take – 
mix unexpected colors in your outfit ! Do It !

Hukk It

Today I have something so awesome for you,  I might just be your bff forever ! 
Let’s put that to test –Do you shop online? Well, thennnn, this is for you ! 
Do you love a  great deal when shopping  – totally for you  !
There are times, when you’d rather wait for an item to go on sale, 
instead of buying at the current ott price – no doubt – this IS for you ! 
For an online shopper , keeping track of sales and cashing out on good deals might not be always desert served on a platter. Add the busy lives we live  to the mix – you know what I am talking about ! I recently came across HUKKSTER – which to be honest, is soon taking the place of the-best-thing-that-happened-to-me ( besides Pizza ofcourse ! ) Its sort of your very own postman notifying you as soon as your favorite items goes on sale ( and includes a coupon if there is one ! ) It’s a boon for the busy folks who cant keep track of sales, flash sale hours are just not an option and scoring a great deal is always number one priority.
Give it a try – its very easy to use. Simply tag your items via Hukkster and pretty soon
you might get the email with the golden words  –  ITS ON SALE !!
These are some of the items that I have added to my Hukkster shelf & waiting for my Hukkster Alert 🙂
