Things you might be doing that could damage your skin:

The skin is the largest organ of our body. We all try and take good care of our skin but there may be certain things which we might be doing that can possibly damage it. Here's a lowdown on potential things/habits which can cause irreversible skin damages:

1. Milk:

Surprising but true! a lot of dermatologist speak about the co-relation between milk(especially skimmed milk) and acne. There are reports of patients having clearer skin after lowering milk consumption.

2. You are what you eat:

This is so true! If you want to keep your skin healthy and glowing dont forget to add fruits and green vegetables to your diet. I know we all know this but dont really follow. You could even mash a fruit or a tomato and apply it over your face, rinsing with cold water after ten minutes! You will instantly notice the difference. From personal experience I have realized that extra spicy and oily food does make me breakout. But that is for me! You can experiment it for yourself.

3. Jeans:

We all sometimes get some red marks on our belly if our jeans are a bit tight. But that's ok. If in case you notice red bumps or rashes on your abdomen area it could be an allergy to the nickel on the snaps or buttons of their jeans. So next time you notice a red mark on your stomach pay close attention to it!

4. Smoking and drinking:

This is another popularly known cause of skin damage. Apart from the numerous side effects, smoking makes your skin look old and wrinkled. Likewise alcohol does no good to your skin too!

4. Falling asleep with you makeup on!

This is one thing which we take care of. We normally do not sleep with our makeup on! But on certain lazy nights we tend to ignore this step! That is when the problem begins! This can lead to bacterial infection, clogged pores and acne! So next time even if you are super tired just take out a few moments to wipe off your makeup before you hit the bed. 

5. Weight loss regime:
You may want to loose weight but do it the right way. I mean dont just simply stop eating. Eat healthy and stop eating junk food. Skipping meals can cause the skin to age faster and look wrinkled and without glow. This is something you would not want. 

All in all I would like to say that lead a healthy life, exercise, take out some time for yourself! Indulge in what makes you happy. Throw stress out of your window and take good care of yourself!

Revlon age defying firming and lifting foundation review:

Hey all you lovely ladies. Today I am going to review a foundation for you which comes from the house of Revlon called Age defying firming and lifting foundation! I have super oily skin throughout the year. I purchased this foundation because honestly its name is very lucrative. I mean who does not want to look younger than their age? 

What Revlon says:

Our advanced anti aging multi-benefit makeup.Firm. Lift. Hydrate. Cover. It combines Hyaluronic acid along with exclusive triple lift complex. Reduces expression lines giving skin smooth, tightened feel.

Here's my take on the product:

Well this foundation gives a medium coverage and you will definitely need a concealer to cover up marks and spots( if you have any) ! It is runny and it took me two pumps for my entire face! This is how it looks like:

 The coverage is quite even and it sets in pretty well. 

What I love about it:
1. It stays on for a long time and even in hot and humid conditions it does a pretty decent job!
2. My expression lines were literally gone. I mean it really does an impressive task at that.
3. It gives my skin a fresh dewy look and this foundation does not look cakey!
What I do not like about it is that it has a medium coverage and you do require a concealer. 

Overall I like this Revlon Age Defying Firming and lifting foundation as it delivers what it promises. As for me I will give it an 8 on ten!

Easy ways to help your nail polish stay on longer:

This is one issue which all of us have to deal with, yes how do we make our nail polish last longer! Well today I am going to share with you certain simple yet important tips which will make your nail color look attractive and help it stay longer! It took me quite a while to figure out these tips and now I am sharing this with all you girls. I hope you find this helpful!

1. The first most important thing is to apply a base coat first. A good base coat evens out your nails and helps your nail paint to stick to your nails for a longer time period. This is surely a trick which works wonders.

2. Another tip is that we all generally apply two coats of nail polish and wait for it to dry. (Which takes long and can be sometimes annoying and let me admit it I sometimes loose my patience! oh GOD.. Apart from waiting there may be bubble issues and You may have to go all over again to set it out). So I have found that instead of two thick coats you can apply four thin coats. This reduces the drying time and ensures a longer lasting nail polish as compared to two thick coats. Give it a try and I hope you will notice the difference!

3. Next, you can also go in for shimmery or shinny nail paints. I mean anything which has sparkles! Not only it looks good, it is also difficult to remove which means it lasts long. Apply your favorite nail polish and then just coat it with some sparkling nail paint and you are good to go!

5. Be patient when the nail polish is still drying. This is one very crucial step and when we are so busy we tend to ignore this step! I mean who has the time to patiently sit there and wait for it to completely dry! Even when you think it has dried you find out that still some more time is required! But ladies, be patient with this step, listen to your music, or watch your favorite drama! Once it is properly dried, put your nails in cold water and apply a hand lotion generously! This will give a very groomed look and your patience(while waiting for the nail polish to dry) will finally pay off! 

6. Lastly top coat your nail polish twice a week to maintain the color.

I hope these were some easy yet helpful tips on how to make your nail color last longer. If you get it you can save a lot of money which you spend in the salon on manicures!

L'OREAL Super Liner Black Lacquer Review:

Hey everyone. Today I am going to review a product from L'oreal called Super Liner Black Lacquer. This liner comes in a cute packaging with a long cap. It has a sponge tip applicator which is quite easy to use. You don not have to be a pro to use this liner.This is how it looks like:

My take on the product:

Well most of us have a hard time applying a perfect eyeliner. I was looking for something which is easy to work with and gives me that glossy super black kind of line. And the answer to all this was L'oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer. It has a rich black color which is not only intense but stays for a long time. It is smudge proof (literally) and also perfect for oily lids (like mine)! 

See how intense and black this is!!


1. Easy to apply and sets perfectly in one application.
2. Smudge proof.
3. Lovely black color which goes on for hours.
4. Does not irritate my sensitive eyes!


1. One problem is that it is difficult to remove and when it does, it comes out as little flakes which sometimes goes in the eyes.( I guess you know what I mean)!! Other than that I DONT think it has any other flaw!


As you can see I absolutely LOVE this product and would definitely recommend it to all of you who would love to have an intensely black eyeliner. You can draw a bit thick black winged line or a very fine thin line whatever you wish. As for me I will surely purchase it again!!
