JoJoba /ho hou ba/

Review + Benefits + Uses

Jojoba Oil also known as Green Gold, is one amongst my favorites wishlist, as its really light and suits all skin types. It is indeed a blessing because of its richness in vitamins & minerals. Its enriched with Vitamin- E , B- Complex,zinc, copper, selenium, chromium & iodine.

I’ve always been fascinated with oils and have been trying out all sorts of varieties, so I recently ordered this 100% Pure Jojoba Oil by @satthwa from Amazon. I received the product on time, well packed & sealed, in a 50 ML bottle with a Screw-on Cap & an Easy-to-Pour-Flip-Cap along with it. It’s a great oil with good qualities at such an affordable price. It applies easily with significant moisture retention and high nourishing properties. It absorbs deeply and reasonably quickly into the skin. It is non-sticky, odorless and my skin felt wonderfully hydrated & soft. It lasts up to 8 hours after applying it.

Daily Skincare Routine

 2017-09-23-16-40-20-646-02.jpg

 

“I’m working on myself, for myself, by myself.”

Hey lovely people,

As promised, Today’s post is going to be about skin care routine and a lot of our lifestyle choices that contribute to the way we look. Choosing good products is definitely important, but it should also come from within. If we are not maintaining a healthy lifestyle, no matter how good or expensive skincare products we invest in, it’s not going to give you the desired results. We are what we eat, drink and “How our daily lifestyle choices affect our skin” is what we are going to be discussing today :

Eat Healthy 

Yeah I know, we all love snacking and eating out. And it’s perfectly fine if done in moderation. Regularly eating junk or missing out on greens and vitamin rich foods, will eventually make our skin look dull. So choose and plan out your regular diet. Trust me you will see good results.

Drink Plenty of Water

This comes from my own experience, I used to buy all kinds to products, but never got the results that I was looking for. So, I chose and designated a drinking bottle just for my use and I started keeping tabs on how much water I drank in a day. Some of my friends and relations used to laugh at me that why am I so obsessed with drinking water all day. But they were amazed when they saw the results. My skin looked & felt better and more clear, without putting on a lot of makeup. This change definitely paid off.

Exfoliate Twice A Week

Uneven skin tones are often a result of dead skin on parts of the body that we are unable to /do not exfoliate properly. It is not just the face that requires to be beautiful, it’s your whole body as there is dead skin all over our body. Exfoliation twice a week is the ideal frequency for this part of our skin care routine. I follow this religiously every single week to get rid of dead skin and to get an increase in blood circulation, giving it a healthy, natural glow. But do not over do it as that will strip away your natural body oils and damage your skin.

Cleanse Regularly, Daily

Never forget to properly cleanse your skin before applying your skin care products and after removing makeup. Cleansing removes toxins, impurities, bacteria, dead skin, thus keeping it more fresh. The results of your make up will also be better. Always keep in mind to remove makeup and cleanse no matter what. Never sleep with makeup on your skin as it will contribute to your aging process. A good hygiene is a must, so follow a regular before & after Cleansing Routine.

Tone Your Skin

Toning your skin is essential to get rid of clogged pores, acne prone skin. It balances our skin to be less prone to oiliness and infection. Prepares our skin to be moisturized especially after removing heavy makeup. If you follow it up after a good cleansing routine it will not harm your skin, in fact it revitalizes your skin making it more soft and radiant, restores skin’s pH balance and shrinks pores as well. Dabur Gulabari Rose Water is my All-time favorite skin toner. Its fragrance is awesome.

Moisturize Regularly

You might not realize it today, but the benefits of moisturizing your skin will be visible in years to come. No matter what type of skin you have, Dry or Oily, keep it hydrated at all times if you wish to look and stay younger. Always try to put on a moisturizer right after you have had your bath, on a little damp skin as it helps to lock in the moisturize and also absorbs it better. I use Bio Care Aloe Vera Gel foe my face and Nivea Smooth Milk Body Lotion as a regular moisturizer.

Sleep 6 to 8 Hours

Getting 6 to 8 hours of sleep is important for a good physical health, well being and help in repairing, regenerating our skin. The amount of sleep we get affects our day to day lives, our energy level and our appearance. Getting a good beauty sleep has become an integral par of our skincare regime. A well rested body will look good and perform better.
