Juice Cleanse For Your Body

Hi dear readers,
I recently read that Juice Cleanse is good for body if done correctly without starving yourself. I took up this challenge to give my digestive system three days of rest just to check if this cleansing method actually works or not. I have not ever tried this type of crazy methods of having only fruit juices in my diet so just thought of giving a try! So here is my review of my first ever Juice Cleanse..!
Three day diet routine:
Morning at around 8am: Lukewarm water with lemon and honey
Breakfast 9am: Carrot juice
Pre-lunch 11am: green tea without sugar
Lunch 1pm: Carrot/Apple juice
Post lunch 3pm : apple juice
Evening: green tea
Pre-dinner 7pm: Carrot/Apple juice
Dinner: Muskmelon juice without sugar
Post Dinner 9pm: Lukewarm water with mint leaves if required If you really get hungry then having a fruit bowl during evening would not cause any harm to your diet.
Benefits:
Stomach gets  little rest for the first time ever!
Skin gets clearer! Seriously no breakouts to worry about..! Pe…

Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

Hi girls,
I am going to give the review of Lakme Eyeconic Kajal today because after trying different brands of kajal, I am finally ready to give my judgement that Lakme's Eyeconic is the best kajal with the right price and it is definitely worth it.
My experience: I apply the Lakme Eyeconic Kajal daily. This one lasts all day till I get back home after office. The Kajal does not smudge anytime until you yourself rub your eyes by mistake. It was very easy to remove. No allergic kind of reactions you get when you use this Kajal. It lasts for long. I might have slipped it from my hand a couple of times but it never broke so soon. It will break if you throw this Kajal with force when you are frustrated but unlike others it would not break when you drop it for the first time.



Rating: 5/5
Pros:
Stays long.
Has vitamin E.
No allergic causing ingredients
Affordable
Cons:
None !

Price: 180 Rs
I can't live without Lakme Eyeconic Kajal. You also try and let me also know your opinion!

Remedy For Athlete's Foot

Hi friends,
Recently I travelled to a holiday resort in a village full of greenery and fresh air. It was drizzling moderately with cool mist. I enjoyed a delicious feast at one of the star hotels .During this period of happiness and comfort, I felt a bit down.
This feeling was of mild itching due to some fungal infection between my left toe fingers. The reason for this was due to me wearing high heels during moist climate. I was a little worried because it was a problem that could not be ignored and it was irritating me to the core. I was wondering what could help me get rid of this itchiness. As usual, my mother came to my rescue. She suggested me to first apply drops of lemon juice followed by a thick layer of Boro Plus cream. This had to kept for couple of hours and repeated for three days. The cream had to be continued to be applied on the infected part until the itchiness was completely reduced because this fungal infection is prone to happen again if not taken care. This cream als…
