Hair and Skin Care: The Monsoon Guide (Free Download)

Hello Friends,

The wait is over, Hair & Skin Care The Monsoon Guide by Inspire Beauty Online is finally here. It’s our First e-book ever, well a pretty short one and that too as a free download for all visitors. Never imagined that this could be possible, even for me.

We all are aware that the monsoon time is a hair and skin nightmare for some. Just for that very reason, this small guide covers hair care and skin care in two sections. This monsoon guide covers the essential do’s, don’ts and tips for Hair and skin care during the rainy season. Many of us are going to realize that our personal care requires one most important thing and that my friends is the ability to follow personal care routines with patience. It will go a very long way and show you your truly beautiful and happier self.

For proofreading at every stage, for reducing this to an amazingly condensed form, for helping find royalty-free images and provide external perspective when I need it the most I have mainly my husband (who loves to be of help) to thank for it. Now that this is done, we both can’t wait to start another GuideBook.

I thank you all for being patient and holding the suspense.

Why is it important to wear a Sunscreen ?

I’m sure you all will agree with me when I say, “Stepping out in the sun is such a concern nowadays.” Don’t you?

” USE A SUNSCREEN BEFORE STEPPING OUT “

We’ve heard this a lot; well, most of you probably have.

Yet there are a lot of people who aren’t following it or even aware of its necessity.

But, How many of us do really understand the importance of wearing a sunscreen?

There’s a very simple explanation for this yet lots of people disregard it as not too important.

Our planetary sunscreen, the Ozone Layer protected us from harmful UV rays that penetrate living cells & damage vital DNA molecules. But now, it has been slowly depleting over the years and harmful rays are now reaching the planet’s surface to us. There are two types of UV rays – 1. UVA, It causes premature ageing & Melanoma (a deadly skin cancer); and 2. UVB, It causes dark spots, sunburns and other types of skin cancers.

The sun doesn’t take a break, so it’s very important to protect your skin and keep those fine lines at bay. Overexposure to harmful UVA & UVB Rays is the cause of skin damage, ageing, spots, skin darkening and skin cancer; and not just getting tanned in the process.

Here comes in the cosmetic sunscreen which functions as portable & temporary ozone layer for you while you are exposed to the sun. Please be very careful & do include this as a vital part of your daily routine and always apply on all exposed skin 15-20 minutes before sun exposure.This is gonna be your personal ozone layer till the scientists have patched up the natural one.

So, Please don’t step out in the sun without wearing a sunscreen at any cost as UVA damage is not reversible.

I use this sunscreen by #VLCCindia as it is a blend of 10 natural ingredients providing gentle natural care to my skin.

A pleasantly fragrant, non-sticky Ayurveda product, VLCC Matte Look Sun Screen Lotion is a broad spectrum sunscreen which is my portable Ozone Layer. It provides long duration protection from both UVA & UVB rays and leaving your skin soft & supple while providing a matte finish.

 

For me, it’s just the right sunscreen to protect my skin & myself from sun damage and I’m sure you would also agree to include it as a part of your routine.

Take Care & Seasons Wishes to All of You Beautiful People.

DIY Natural Apple Skin Peel

What is it?

Apples contain fruit acids that are called Alpha Hydroxy Acids(AHA). These acids exhibit natural ability to excellently exfoliate cells, accelerate cell renewal, stimulate cell metabolism, synthesis of collagen, elastin and other components, change acidity of the skin, influence process of skin keratinization.

Why does it work?

When used in higher concentration levels above 20%, These acids are able to act not only on the upper layer of the skin, but also penetrate into its deeper layer. It is one of the main anti-aging methods to prolong the youth of our skin, stimulate the removal of epidermis and helps get rid of dead cells.

Multiple application of fruit acids enhances exfoliation of dead layers of skin which means that it can eliminate some skin defects such as redness, roughness, acne and spots due to acne. Fruit acids are able to induce swelling of skin cells & inter-cellular substance, thus increasing its elasticity and reducing visible wrinkles.

How to Use It?

Either you can use fresh cut slices of the fruit and rub it directly on your skin and rinse or you could try out this easy DIY Natural Skin Peel. I tried it and liked it very much.
