Hey everyone, hope you all are fine and refreshed after the Eid break, back to the boring daily routine.

Eid was hectic to say the least and due to all the regular application of heavy make up my skin was looking tired and asking for some attention. I have sensitive skin and it reacts quickly if I don’t follow the normal regime. Fortunately, my family understands that and among other Eid gifts, I also got L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Mask which I decided to try.

It comes in ready to use packaging so all you need is to cleanse your skin and apply directly to your face. As I mentioned earlier, I have sensitive skin so I could feel a little tingling. So I would suggest a patch first to ensure it suits your skin. I left it for 15 minutes to dry and then washed it with normal water.

Review :

• It has a very good smell.
• It made my skin very clear and soft.
• It sucked out all extra oil and blackheads. It made my skin a bit dry so I applied moisturizer afterwards.

Verdict : I loved it and will be using it in the future!

 

 

Protein Hair Treatment at Home

Written by Sumayya Feroz

I have always put emphasis on finding alternatives for beauty treatments, which are both time and money consuming. So here is a protein treatment for hair which you can try at home.

INGREDIENTS:

EGG 1
HONEY 1 table spoon
ALMOND OIL 2 tablespoon
VITAMIN E CAPSULES 2
HOW TO USE: Whisk all the ingredients properly. Apply with fingers or brush on your hair from root to tip. After applying the mixture wrap your hair with a hot towel and a shower cap and leave it for 1-2 hours, now you can enjoy your popcorns while watching TV or finish your chores. After 2 hours wash your hair with shampoo of your choice. At the end of the shower, use a mixture of one table spoon of ACV (apple cider vinegar) in a big cup of tap water to rinse your hair.
RESULTS: As Mr. Egg is rich in proteins, amino acids etc., it will give your hair a nice smooth texture, but please be patient because home remedies take time.

You can repeat this home remedy in every 15 days but if your hair is damaged because of excess exposure to heat (blow dryers, straighteners, curlers) repeat this once in a week.

Finally , I want to share my thoughts on people getting very materialistic these days, running after the high end products whether they can afford it or not. Please for the sake of your peace don’t do this. If you cannot go to salon for facials or any other treatments don’t be depressed instead find alternative products and home treatments. And be thankful to your creator for you can even afford home treatments, you have an egg to apply on your face or hair where millions of people still don’t have anything to eat, so next time don’t be depressed when you see someone around using high end products.

Love you all, Sumayya

I’m a working woman and after long, tiring week, I like to treat myself a little with beauty treatments and so I keep trying new products. But to say the least, I like instant results using easy techniques and any product that promises that, gets my instant attention.

A few days ago I randomly bought a face mask from a home based Pakistani online page named Food For Your Face by Fire fly.  I always have pain in the ass type products from online pages but I was willing to give this one a try just for the heck of it.

So I take 1 spoon full of that mask and mix it with chilled milk, mix it until it has a  creamy thick texture as indicated on the instructions leaflet. After applying it evenly on all over my face and neck (Beauty tip: don’t treat your neck like a garbage bin, it needs just as much attention as your face:)), I just relax and wait for it to dry. I really like the tingling effect it gives due to peppermint oil. Now once there is a thick dry layer of mask on my face, I first loosen it with my wet hands then wash it off with plain water. Later, I apply a moisturizer.

Now come to the results, my skin is so fresh and clean and all my room is scented with pepper mint aroma. Most of the time I am so busy that I don’t have time to go to salon so this is the best choice for me and for all lazy couch potatoes. After few applications I am noticing that my nose is mostly cleared up (my nose is otherwise filled with black and white heads).

So this is a Yayyyyy from me for this mask but that same product which someone love might not suit you so choose wisely and always perform a patch test.
