Acne Mantra

Hi everyone,

Acne is a common problem faced by many people around the world. When a teenager sees a pimple on their skin, they get tensed thinking like that is the end of the world! You need not worry about that nasty little thing because everyone goes through this issue in their lives. Oh yes, there are some ladies blessed with dry skin that do not cause any pimples. Are oily skinned ladies cursed then? No. Definitely not! They are also blessed! They will wrinkle later than these dry skinned ones. Getting back to my topic of pimples, follow this routine to get rid of zits completely.

  • Make sure to drink lot of water, preferably 8 glasses of water
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle by reducing intake of junk food
  • Use a mild face wash or soap meant for acne prone skin
  • Use a sunscreen with a spf of 30 atleast after washing face 
  • Apply coconut or olive oil to your skin before face wash. This would remove dirt and debris neatly from your skin
  • Use a brush like Clarisonic or Olay Pro X in order to minimize touching face
  • Wash your pillow covers regularly
  • Wash your mattresses and pilows once every three to six months
  • Reduce your sugar, caffeine, salt and spicy foods intake. Try to skip non veg food for a month just to check if this actually makes an difference to your skin.
Acne is caused due to the stuff in your gut so clean up your gut by eating right food and drinking the right liquids. Drink pure fruit juices without usage of sugar. Keep yourself positive! Say to yourself that you will get rid of pimples soon.

Review of Acnestar Soap

Hi everyone,

Today I will be giving review of Acnestar soap .


What is so special about this soap? Can everyone use it? Who should actually use this soap? I will answer these questions one by one.
I use Benzac (Benzyl Peroxide, 2.5%) when I get pimples during my special days. It is a gel that eliminates pimples in the same night. It basically dries out the zits so pimple gets cleared by next day! I wash my face with a mild soap, wait for about 15 to 20 minutes until skin dries up completely. I apply this cream on the affected spots. In the beginning I used to get slight tingling sensation. My skin had to get used to it. On the first time use, I kept it for 20 minutes and washed it. I did not actually experience any heating sensation as such but I just washed it to be on safer side. From second night I let it work on my face the whole night. It dries up your zits so damn wonderfully and your face appears fair. Its also a bleaching agent so you need to be careful about the pillows you s…

Fruit of the earth Neem and Rosemary Cream Pack Review

Hi friends,

Today I am going to give a review on 'Fruit of the earth Neem and Rosemary Cream Pack'.





My aunt gave me this cream pack and I was quite excited to use this one. I used it every night after cleansing face with a mild cleanser. I had slight acne marks and pigmentation before using this product. All started to fade. My friends also noticed the difference on my face. When the tube was almost empty, I searched on net and saw it on flipkart! I was so very happy and thrilled to buy this one. I bought two tubes !
Price: 145Rs




Directions to use: Wash your face with a mild cleanser like Nutregena deep clean foaming cleanser. Then let your skin dry for few minutes. Apply this cream pack on your face little by little. If you feel that the pack is not getting on your skin smoothly then add little water to the paste, but I prefer applying it without water. Let it work on your face overnight. No tingling sensation you will feel after you apply this pack! In the morning, wash you…

Review of MSM Cream

Hi readers,

Today I am going to review a special miracle cream called MSM cream. Why do I call it as a 'Miracle' cream? Read on you will get to know why.

Acne problem is a skin problem everyone go through atleast once in their lives. Some have very bad experiences with it, some who are lucky do not have much issues with it. When a pimple gets dry and leaves, it does not leave without leaving a mark unless a precaution is taken to make sure no marks are left behind. Some marks also knows as scars are so very noticeable which makes one feel low, guilty and lose confidence. In such times, thoughts that strike their minds are- 'I wish I had not popped the pimple that day! I should have left it as it is!'. Even if you did not pop the pimples while you were awake, you might pop them while you were asleep. How long can you instruct your brain not to pop pimples?  how can you instruct your brain not to pop during sleep? Next morning you will find a reddish spot in the place of a…
