Actually I was moving from shop to shop in search of a product that will not take enough time to apply but at the same time will nourish your skin. A product that can be used as a cleanser as well as a moisturizer and above all it has to be natural. You guys are definitely be surprised why I have so many requirements. No guys I want to make you clear this is not for me; this is for my elder brother. He is too lazy and reluctant in this matter but he is too handsome. He uses product only for my request. finally the shopkeeper uncle came to rescue me and suggests this product and I bought two tubes of PATANJALI SAUNDARYA ALOE VERA GEL KESAR CHANDAN…for me and my elder brother.
The product comes in a plastic tube with a flip cap. The color of the gel looks yellowish inside the tube but while taking in finger the color is too light to understand. The fragrance is very nice. The product says that it is a unique blend of chandan & kesar with aloe vera gel which makes the complexion free from roughness and dullness. Also helps to control sunburn, tanning, dark spots and pigmentation and increases skin glow.
HOW TO USE
The packaging advises to apply the product 30 minutes before your bath and leave it and if you have any skin problems looked dark spots, massage the gel 5-7 minutes.
Nt.Wt.:- 60 ml
Best Use:- 18 months from MFD
As the product is light, it absorbed easily in skin providing a cooling sensation which is much needed as the summer is approaching. The presence of Saffron (kesar) and Sandalwood (chandan) with Aloe vera makes it more effective on skin. It really works on sun burn and pimples. It also gives noticeable glowing skin with softness and smoothness. I use it whenever I get sufficient time.
The product is summer friendly and will give you a fresh feeling.
If you want to keep your skin healthy for longer period, if you want to look 30 in your 50, you have to adopt some healthy habits. Only applying products will not help you alone. It does not cost much labor or money, just a simple change in your habits can help you to maintain your beauty. I just can quote Steven Pressfield…”we can never free ourselves from habit. But we can replace bad habits with good one”so here is some simple habits for you…
- Start your day with lemon and honey. We all know this. It helps to detoxify the body, boosts your metabolism, helps to loose weight and many more.
- Sit at least 20 minutes to do pranayam, do at least Anulom Vilom which is also called alternate nostril breathing to make your skin healthy. It helps to purify the mind as well as body. This pranayam provides relief from migraine, depression and stress. If you want glowing, clear and beautiful skin you definitely should try this.
- Take 3-4 Almonds and 2-3 basil leaves. Soak the almond overnight, peel the skin and eat it with basil leaves after the pranayam. Almonds are rich in Vitamin E. It is beneficial for all over your body. It is also beneficial for hypertension and diabetic patient. What can I say about Basil leaves… It is called the “queen of herbs”. It has numerous values. It cures any kind of skin diseases..rash, pimple, acne . it also helps to prevent cough and cold, helps to make your skin look younger by preventing premature aging.
- After 1-2 hours of your breakfast take a seasonal fruit.
- Drink a glass of hot water after your lunch as well as your dinner. It improves digestive system, helps to loose weight, makes your skin healthy, improves blood circulation.
- Eat curd and cucumber 2 hours after your lunch. Curd is rich in calcium and protein.

The best habit that can provide you glowing skin costs nothing that is a SMILE. The best oxygen for skin is smile. So be happy and keep smiling.

In my previous post Facial with Home based ingredients I have shared my Mom’s faith on “gharelu nuske’ for skin and today I am going to share with you how does Mom take care of my hair till now when she gets me in her capture. The word Spa was not familiar at that time. They did not know the word Hair Spa, yet the things they used to do to make their hair beautiful is today named Hair Spa.
First of all applying oil is very much necessary. Oil is a good conditioner. It helps to hydrate our hair. You can heat the oil before applying. Now massage the oil with your fingertips gently. It helps to improve the blood circulation. My Mom used to apply oil on my head at night. You can use it at night or three hours before bath. From my early childhood to now she uses coconut oil on my hair. Honestly speaking after the massage I feel very relaxed.
HAIR PACK..(1):– At first wash the hair with shampoo. When the hair will begin to dry, comb it properly then apply this homemade pack. For the pack take one egg (as per the length of the hair), juice of one lemon, one spoon honey and one spoon of castor oil. Apply this pack on your scalp as well as on hair. Leave it for one hour. Finally just rinse it with water. If you have no problem then do not shampoo that day, apply shampoo the next day. After applying the shampoo you will be able to feel the softness of your hair.
HAIR PACK..(2):– Soak Indian gooseberry (Amla), Acacia Concinna (Shikakai) and Soap Nuts (Reetha) then grind them and make a paste. Add lemon juice with it and apply on your oil massaged hair. Leave it for one hour and simply rinse it with water. You can make natural shampoo by adding these things properly.
One of my aunts apply onion juice and Hibiscus paste on hair as it prevents hair loss, promotes hair growth and stops premature graying. But I have never tried this. If you are suffering from frequent hair loss or premature graying you can definitely try this.
That’s all everyone. Natural things are always harmless so you can rely on them. Get that lustrous, soft, shiny hair and be happy.
