Fairness is Just a Hyped Word!!

dark_girls

Fairness is absolutely overrated. Today while I was watching a program, where a lady was blabbering about – How fairness is important to anybody and how it can be achieved by using her products. I thought why fairness is such a big issue. God made each individual different from each other, please respect that at least.

However, I believe my readers could say I am not a right person to pin point on fairness because I am not a person who can understand this pain. In India, where people refer mostly with phrases like “accha woh kali ladki” [means – who that dark skinned girl] or “andhere mei toh tere sirf daant dikhte honge” [means – in dark only your teeth must be visible]. This is called heights of racism. I know few of my friends who keep insisting me over the fact, I want to be fair is there any product, facial creams available which can make me fair. And the only answer I have – A person should be beautiful from inside. As I always say – Beauty Lies Within!

If truth be told, I know another girl who is fair like milk but does it make her any good person; I would say NO. Believe me she was one of the biggest backstabber I met across my life. I remember she told me once fairness is the only thing that she has, don’t take that from her and I was all shocked and stepped back. It’s just a way of telling you that fairness doesn’t make you a good person at any case.

Here I would like to add, what’s more important than fairness is having a healthy glowing skin. If I take examples look at Chitrangada Singh or Deepika Padukone in bollywood. They are not any fair plastic dolls but they do look stunning. Because they have flawless and glowing skin with a great toned body. One should aim for thing which can be attained i.e. aim for having a healthy and great body, great skin by eating healthy, quitting bad habits like smoking, boozing etc., drinking water, green tea. Go for walk, jogging or join some gym or sports. What’s more important is to understand the need of your body. Here you can do one thing, try to keep your skin clean, wear sunscreen from any further tanning and sun damage. Here you can also remove tanning with simple home remedies. Click Here to read the remedies. One more thing you can do, buy a Lacto bleach (tan removal) to remove tanning. Simply apply the cream mixing it with any toner and keep it for 25-30 minutes on skin. Wash it water. Keep your skin healthy, clean and glowing. Simple Isn’t!

At last, remember a person is always admired when he or she do something better for someone and not because of looks or fairness. If you are a fine person from heart you will always find the true love. Aim for achievable goals and believe in Karma. Karma reminds me those beautiful lines “Paap kya, punya kya sab bhula de. Karma kar phal ki chinta mita de” [means – forget about sin or good deeds. Just believe in karma and also forget about the returns.] Take care and stay blessed.

My July Month’s Fab Bag

Finally my fab bag arrived for this month – July. I was pretty excited to open and to see what all I got. This is my first bag and I am quite satisfied with the products; although I was expecting a lipstick into this bag as it was shown in their facebook page. Nevertheless, I personally liked the shampoo and oil kit from BioBloom and Votre’s Day Moisturizing Gel with SPF  35. Since I got an oily skin gel products always fascinates me. The shampoo and oil kit seems to be good too from the ingredients mentioned like peppermint oil, basil oil, almond, hibiscus, amla, shikakai etc. etc. which are really healthy for hair care and hair growth.

Boozy Hair Rinse – Beer Hair Rinse

beer for hair rinse

Beer for summers is always refreshing and cool. I guess it’s the only alcohol which keeps you cool even in the scorching heat outside. But do you know beer is actually good for hair too. I am sure many of you are aware of beer shampoos which are available in today’s markets. However, in today’s post I will not just tell you the benefits of beer rinse for hair but also how to make your own personal DIY beer shampoo which is cost effective from the market.

Beer makes your limp and lifeless hair all bouncy and alive. Apparently Kareena Kappor once said in her interview that she rinse her hair with beer. Here is one thing that needs to be keep in mind for rinsing your hair with beer is that use flat beers i.e. keep the beer bottle open in the environment for an overnight. So that, all those froths disappears and you left with no-fizz beer. This no-fizz beer also fixes your frizzy hair! (Wow! From No-Fizz to Non-Frizzy, this rhyme somehow :P)

The malt and hops found in the beer are rich in protein, which ultimately nourishes and strengthens hair. The nutrients found in beer can help you to repair that dry, damaged hair to make it luscious and shiny. The protein actually helps in binding the hair which got dehydrated from blow drying, straightening or even due to harsh weather, and it restores strengthen and gives body to it. In addition, the alcohol in the beer contains vitamins B too that load up your hair with shine.

Although, there are some cases where beer doesn’t suits to your hair as it makes it even drier due to alcohol contents in it. Therefore, always pre check once before going to use it further. And for this you can do one more thing, mix water in the beer so that its get diluted even further or may be use it with tea liqueur for it.

Hair is made of a protein called keratin, further it got medulla, cortex, and cuticle. Now, hair cuticles are generally porous in nature. More it’s porous, frizzier and drier the hair. So, when you rinse your hair with beer, the beer molecules actually get into these pores and its natural ingredients coat each strand and give hair-nourishing benefits to hair.

So, How to Rinse your Hair with Beer? Continue reading Boozy Hair Rinse – Beer Hair Rinse
