Lotus Rejuvina Protective Lotion....My Daily Moisturizer

When it come to moisturizers I was always choosy and kind of reluctant.The products which were hyped and claimed to work wonder didnt work for me and I broke out like crazy.
Well I have a combination skin and the worst part is that I was detected with cancerous skin cells few years ago and was under treatement at KAYA SKIN CLINIC. And after that though my cancer was cured but my skin just got worse and so what product I use I need to be extra careful.
Moisturizers were never my besties after that coz I tried many renowned brands and ended up irritating my skin.Finally when I thought of giving up, my beautician suggested me this amazing product by Lotus Professional.Rejuvina Protective Lotion.

Well this product worked wonder for me.Though initially I was reluctant to use it but now that I have been using it since an year its been my bff.It moisturizes my skin pretty well without making it oily.After using it I have found my skin getting better(though its not the only product helping me improve my skin).
I am totally in love with it and cant get enough of it.As now I am in Malaysia and its not available here, so whenever anyone from my friends or family come from India, I order atleast 2bottles of this :P
Its the only thing I use as my morning moisturizer and also as a base for my foundation....

I am loving it :) :)

My Makeup Resolutions !!!!!!

We all make several resolutions. Resolutions to lose weight, quit smoking, save money, etc. but let's not forget our makeup routine! Here are my top 5 resolution when it comes to makeup:

1. Don't go to bed without washing off your makeup. This is the most important as makeup left on can clog pores and cause premature aging.

2. Moisturize! And I don't just mean face, neck is one of the first places to show aging as most people forget to take care of this area.

3. Invest in an eye cream. The skin around the eyes is more delicate than the face and should be treated with a moisturizer specific to this area.

4. Get my foundation rematched every 6 months. skin doesn't stay the same shade from summer to winter, so why would foundation? Getting color rematched ensures a natural looking finish to makeup.

5. Keep experimenting with new looks ;)

So what are your resolutions?

1 a Minute : From the claws of BREAST CANCER

Few weeks ago my hubby downloaded a documentary movie for me to see.I am never tempted to watch such movies.But finally I saw it.1 a Minute. Its a documentary by Namrata Singh Gujral and  is based around her own life and the lives of other women and their battle with Cancer.
After seeing this I realized how many women in this world are trapped by this evil web of cancer and how many of them are battling and literally getting out of the evil trap.Its a movie or series of true incidents which demonstrates the 'NEVER GIVE UP' spirits of a person suffering from Cancer and winning over it.
This documentary features many female celebrities from around the world and conveys their experiences and their journey from getting into the claws of cancer till getting out of it.
Its a must must must watch for all....
You can download it from here
We can always fight and win over every obstacles....Its all about fighting and keep on fighting till our last breathe.......

A tribute to Ghazal King JAGJIT SINGH !!!!!

I was really shocked to get the news that my favorite ghazal singer Jagjit Singh ji passed away today.He is considered to be the pioneers of modern Ghazal singing and regarded as most successful recording artist outside the realm of Indian film music. He has sung in Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati, Sindhi and Nepali languages. He was awarded India's third highest civilian honour, the Padma Bhushan.

He composed many albums, from which The Unforgettables (1976),Main aur Meri Tanhaayee (1981), Ecstasies (1984),A Sound Affair (1985),Ghazals from Films (1989),Man Jite Jagjit (1990),Memorable Ghazals of Jagjit and Chitra (1990),Sajda (Two Volumes with Lata Ji) (1991) are a few.

Its indeed a great loss for his fans like me and also for the entire world..

May his soul rest in peace........

***You will always be remembered ***
