Ways To A Pimple Free Life // It Is Possible

Unless you face any problem in life, you can never know how dreadful it can be.  When you face it, you have to find a way out. This is how I found my ways to remain pimple free for life.


If I had found a post like this, three years back, I would have laughed. I never had any issues with pimples. NEVER. Maybe one or two at times but, nothing to worry about (And forget about pimples marks. No pimples = No marks!). 

Life changed when I changed my city three years back - new city, more pollution, more humidity, hectic lifestyle, no exercise, oily food and tons of other bad habit. Obviously, I was not as healthy as I was before. And how do I realized it? My skin was dull and full of pimples. 

I do not want to explain how tough life gets when you face pimple issues because unless you face it, you cannot understand. The problem is even more these days because some or other friend might take a picture and tag you in social media channels! And the images stay forever...and ever.

As I have never faced any pimple issue in my life, it was a tough long journey to the pimple free life (almost) that I live now. It was a tough journey because something worked and something didn't; and what worked left my skin more dull, tired and lifeless.

The Body Shop Early-Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub Review // Winter Skin Pampering


The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub Review

I see the scrubs by The Body Shop can be broadly divided into three categories - sugar, jelly and cream. I have tried the sugar and cream version (chocomania and vineyard peach respectively) and really wanted to try the jelly version. Blueberry one tempted me a lot but I skipped it. When I saw the early-harvest rasbperry on 50% off, I just could not resist anymore. The Body Early Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub is an absolute delight for senses in this winter.

L’Oréal INFALLIABLE LE ROUGE Rambling Rose (212), Charismatic Coral (421), Forever Fuchsia (138) Lipsticks Review

L'Oreal Paris Infalliable Rambling Rose (212), Charismatic Coral (421), Forever Fuchsia (138) Lipstick  Review

Last year, I was extremely cautious with everything I purchased. I got really selective with everything I got and made sure that I most definitely needed them. But, in December, while just browsing I discovered these new lipsticks at L’Oréal. Actually, this is not a new launch but a re-packed re-formulated version of the previous version. 

I absolutely loved one of the color – Rambling Rose. I picked it up. Then, I added another orange one to my bag. Went home and discovered that the SA gave me the older ones! On top of it, the new Rambling rose is completely different from the old one. I went back on the very next day and found that Rambling Rose was only present in testers and not in stock! So, I had to get two other lipsticks that were in stock. But, I could not resist and ordered Rambling Rose online.

So, instead of one, now I have three! Nice twist to being cautious! LOL

Golden Earring



Found another beautiful earring from another exhibition....

I got these from arVasaa Jewelry. What I liked about them is that do not make two copies for the same thing so, everything is unique. I got it for Rs 2000 which is decent for something that is 100% unique. They present maximum variety during their exhibition. They have a Facebook page and you can contact them there for their next exhibition. The immediate next one is going to happen in City Center, Kolkata on 10th and 11th 2015.



Love,
