How To Clear Acne Naturally?

Neem Powder

Clear Acne Naturally

I have been suffering from acne since I was a teenager. I am now trying to clear acne naturally.I was able to successfully clear my acne by chemical peels, microdermabrasion, facials, pills and topical creams prescribed by dermatologists.  My acne cleared up as long as I was doing these treatments and taking medicines however it would return back once I would stop the treatments. I was frustrated as I wasn’t feeling great putting so much chemicals on my skin as we all know the potential hazards. So I took the plunge and started reading about Ayurveda and natural medicine. I came across the medicinal benefits of the herb called “Neem”, being indian this herb wasn’t a new a discovery to me. My mother and grandmother used to tell me the benefits of using “Neem” however being a teenager I didn’t have any patience in trying out natural ingredients for few reasons. First, it takes time to make a face pack or paste every day to be applied over your face and second natural herbs take ages to show visible results.

However after reading up about “Neem” on the internet I learned about its skin benefits. It is an ideal herb for acne prone skin as it has anti-bacterial properties which help to sooth irritation & inflammation and clear up pimples. Living in England it’s hard to find “Neem” leaves, as it’s native to southeast Asia. So I started searching for Ayurvedic Neem powder or neem oil over the internet. After few searches I came across Ayuuri Natural who sell Neem leaf powder which is 100% natural. Without thinking twice I ordered the powder as it was just for £2.49, which is quite cheap.

Once the product arrived I did a patch test as advised to make sure I didn’t have any reaction. After I did the patch test I didnt have any reaction and started washing my face in the morning with neem powder. You need to keep the paste for 5 mins and then wash it off. After  1 month I noticed that I wasn’t getting much pimples, may be one or two just before my periods. So I have decided to continue using it and see if my skin clears up completely

Just to note when using natural treatment it is very important to watch what you eat. I have eliminated diary completely from my diet and I try to drink at least 8 glasses of water.

Petite Pick Of The Day

Petite

Bikini: Debenhams

Today’s Petite Pick Of The Day is high-waisted bikini. High waisted bikini is great for petite girls like me for few reasons, first it helps elongate the body second it also helps to camouflage the tummy if you have one. I love the tropical prints in the Debenhams high-waisted bikini and combination of colours is amazing.

The summer season is here and we have been blessed with some sunshine since last few weeks here in the U.K. When I think of summer-sunshine, long nights, yellow sand beaches and blue water floats in front of my eyes taking me to a dreamy world filled with joy, happiness and peace. My idea of a perfect beach is yellow sand with crystal clear water as I love playing with sand and taking a dip in the ocean. I love the ocean, it helps me connect to my inner soul and rewind.This high waisted bikini is perfect for the romantic summer beach holiday that I am dreaming of at the moment while writing this post.

Stylfile invented by Tom Pellereau

Stylfile

Hello Everyone!Few weeks ago I was invited to a secret blogger event to meet  Stylfile inventor and Apprentice 2011 winner Tom Pellereau at Shop Drink & Co. I am a  huge fan of Tom and was very excited to have received an invite. The event was an intimate event where Tom Pellereau showed us all the products from his stylfile’s existing range and prototypes from his upcoming range.

Keeping your nails in good shape and tidy is well easier if you have the right tools. Tom invented the curved nail care range after watching his sister struggle to file her nails. The curved file has been created to follow the natural shape of nails making it easy to use even with the other non-dominant  hand. I really love the concept of a curved file, it’s a genius invention. I am so surprised that no one else before Tom came up with the idea.

Here are some of the products* from their range that I received and have used:

1.S-file*- The S-file is a curved nail filer with two abrasive sides which helps to curve and smooth nails using one piece of product. Since it has two sides, it’s recommended to use one side to shape the nails and the other side to smooth the nail. You can buy the S-file for £4.49 from most leading super markets and chemists.

2. S-buffer*- The S-buffer is a curved buffer with 4 elements which helps you to achieve shiny sparkling nails without having to visit the nail salon or use transparent nail varnish. This product is one of my favourite from the Stylfile range as it eliminates the need to use transparent nail varnish and helps to get neat, tidy and sparkly nails at the convenience of your own home. The S-buffer is also available for £4.49 from most leading super markets like Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda and Boots.

3. Emergency file*- I love the emergency file it’s handy and you can put in your handbag or clutch, perfect to prevent any nail disaster on the go. My nails break quite easily and most of the time I grow them long so the emergency file is a god sent product for me. The emergency file is a mini file in a protective spiral casing which prevents the file from scratching any delicate item. The emergency file is priced at £4.49.

4. S-Clipper *-  The S-clipper comes with curved, scissor-like blades which cuts through the finger nail with ease to help you trim your nails without the ping. I love this product as it’s really good quality compared to other clippers available in stores . You can buy the S-clipper for £8.99. They also do a mini clipper which is priced at £7.49.

I recommend you all to check Stylfile out if you haven’t yet.

Have you used Stylfile products? What are your thoughts?

Weekend in Pictures

Hello Everyone! How are you? Apologies for not being able to post yesterday, my website backend was experiencing some technical issues. Today’s blog post is about my weekend activity via pictures. Pictures say lot more than words in my opinion, in today’s world when we have so little time for everything I thought I will let the pictures do the talking instead of me today. Just to give you a brief gist I drove to the beautiful Cotswold (for my readers from other parts of the world, it’s in England ) on Saturday and I went to central London on Sunday. I would like to mention the last picture is of Ain’t Nothin But.. London’s Original Blues Bar. I am a huge blues music fan and absolutely recommend going there on a Saturday if you want to listen some great musicians playing. This bar is one of my favourite, I love to listen to live music more than recorded music at pubs or bars. Check out the blues bar website here.
