My Luxury Spring Skincare Must-Haves.

With sun is shining gloriously outside, today I will be showcasing some of the best luxe skincare products that I’m completely relying on at the moment. To be honest, I tend to use more kind of light weighted products during Spring as my body could cope up well with seasonal changes and weather conditions and Spring is the quintessential time where your beauty wardrobe needs some tender loving care; plus, this is the time of the year where you could ideally able to introduce some of the natural based products into your daily skincare beauty regime. So, let me get straight into the product drop down list right away and hence, stay tuned!

23apr162

If you are blessed with baby soft skin, then I guess you really stand up well ahead in the skincare game or otherwise, try to follow some natural skin detox routines like me which could ideally bring some healthy benefits to your skin. Generally, I follow two detox routines that are named as:

Skin Detox By Fitness:

I love to go for walking everyday and if weather doesn’t permit, then I swap to my regular yoga regime. And, I’m a firm believer of fitness routines and it really helps to detox your skin inside and out in a natural way and there is no harm in practicing it regularly. So, what kind of fitness routine do you follow? Is it jogging, trekking, swimming, sports or something else? Yes, it certainly takes some time to show up the results but you will be rewarded and paid off well for sure with the worth of effort that you take.

Skin Detox Drink:

I always start my day with honey and lemon in warm water and recently, I’ve heard that lemon water is good for white part of your eye and hence, why not give it a try then?

 

23apr163

Lancome Bi-Facil, eye makeup remover

When it comes to cleansing routine, I simply adore to use Lancome products as they does their job simply perfect without leaving any trace of greasiness. And, my beloved eye makeup lover is Lancome Bi Facil Instant Cleanser.

Lancome Glatteis Douceur Softening Cleansing Fluid

For other part of the face, I stick onto Lancome Galateis Douceur Cleansing Fluid. I love this product as it unbelievably keeps my skin to be supple and acts just as a second skin.23apr164

Softening Hydrating Toner, Lancome, Tonique Douceur , Lotion Hydratante Adoucissante

Toning is one of the best skincare routine that has to be followed regularly and I totally admit to this fact which I religiously started to trust lately and one of the best toners that I adore to use is Lancome Tonique Douceur.

Spring is always meant to bring some colours on your face and body and in further, nails are not in exception either and hence, with frequent application of nail varnishes, your nails might be at a total blink and to avoid this mess, LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter comes as a nail and cuticle saviour.

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

I’m such a sucker to plumper lips and that’s why, I always love to use Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub on my lips so that it exfoliates my lips exponentially well.

Khaki Nail Candies.

1feb16

Happy #ManiModay! Here comes the start of February and I have so many blog ideas that are already been lined up to spruce up the official beginning of the month as Valentine’s day is around the corner and I’m hoping it’s going to be a busy month as the weather is going to be finally getting milder by end of this month (hopefully!). Well, while moving along to the beauty side, today’s manicure pick is from the gorgeous nail shade, khaki green from Seventeen which is definitely a divine hue to galore it onto your nails as on the fashion show runway, there were so many models lined up with khaki nail candies  and for me, a right time has finally arrived to show up this stunning shade onto my nails.

To be honest, khaki is always meant to be one of the coolest nail shade as you could literally able to match up with your khaki outfits such as a bomber jacket, parka hoodie, chiffon blouse, trousers or a suede skirt and so, however you try to pair it up, your sense of fashion style will outshine with excellence.

Colour carnival is a nail range from the brand, Seventeen and it has some of the ravishing colours that works brilliantly well for any time of the year and it works exemplarily well as well and one of the finest nail shade from this range is khaki green which is absolutely a fun colour to splash it onto your nails. The consistency is runny and translucent and hence, it is ideal to coat your nails quintessentially well.

Application:

  1. Roll the bottle in your palm to shake well.
  2. Start the procedure with a well cleaned, washed and conditioned nails.
  3. Apply a thin layer of base coat onto your nails.
  4. Then, apply two coats of Seventeen khaki green onto your nails.
  5. Now, apply a single coat of top coat onto your nails.
  6. Rub out any excess bits by running a cotton bud that is previously soaked up with nail polish remover onto the outer perimeter of your nails.
  7. Finally, your nails are ready to show off.

All-in-all, this nail polish is easy to apply, a relatively gorgeous shade for sure and a versatile fun-ful shade that suits for all seasons. Moreover, it is not a flashy shade and hence, it is a compact colour to apply it onto your nails for any occasion. I think this nail colour is a perfect addition to your existing nail polish range and I hope you like it the same as I do.

So, what is your current favourite nail shade at the moment? And, let me know the same into the comment section that is right below and as always, I would to read them.
