There is a new Masque in Town!

Staying at home the past couple of months has marked a shift in lot of things for us. Self-care has come to the forefront and something that we have started, not only indulging in but also specifically taking out the time for. Beside our health and mental well-being, we are focusing on skincare too. I definitely feel like I rediscovered skincare during this time. I have become more aware of what is actually effective on my skin, what exactly works and what does not. I have had a long skincare journey and my skin is at its best now because of a healthy lifestyle, good sleep cycle, lots of water, along with a lot of trial and error as well! Errors have been amended, and things that have been effective have become a regular in my skin care routine. 

As a part of trying new things, I laid my hands on the Dermafique Bio Cellulose masques, as recommended by a friend. Here is my honest and unbiased opinion about the masks. 

While using the Dermafique masques I realized, they fit better on the contours of my face, had higher efficacy because of high levels of concentration, don’t tear upon application (sheet masks are often fragile) and sheet masks are often synthetic and non-Bio Degradable, whereas these Bio Cellulose masks are made with Biodegradable Bio Cellulose Masques. 

Another important thing to note is that Bio Cellulose Masks are Made from 100% Natural Coconut Water which in itself helps supplement natural moisture and nutrients to the skin.

Talking about how to use the Cellulose Mask. Clean your Face, the mask comes in 3 layers one needs to detach the woven layer and place the mask on the face and then remove the Outer film. Then gently press mask on the face for a close fit. In my experience it fits well and once on your face you don’t have worry about the mask falling off. I go about doing my chores while the mask does its magic. Keep the mask on for about 30 mins and then gently rub remaining product onto the face.

Dermafique has 3 varieties in their Cell-by-Cell Bio Cellulose range – all three made from 100% Natural Coconut Water. The Charcoal Masque mask is for deep pore cleansing, helps unclogs pores and does make the skin feel cleaner and brighter. I did feel sneaky clean after using the mask and trust me that’s a great feeling when it comes to skin.

The Second Mask the Pore Tightening Masque that tones the skin. This mask detoxifies and purifies the skin making it look softer, smoother and firmer. Again, a decent mask and skin did feel a bit firmer after use. 

The Third Mask is the Tone Perfecting Masque. This mask is for reducing the appearance of blemishes and dark spot. After using this mask my skin definitely felt brighter.

A side note skincare is all about consistency and using right products. When I say I notice changes after using a product it means it was better than how my skin was before using the product. No Magic just effectiveness of the products, the magic is in consistency of using the products combined with healthy eating!

Will I buy these masks? 
Yes I will. Dermafique is one brand that has continuously innovated in the skincare category and these Bio Cellulose masques are just one stepping stone on their journey, that I enjoy being a part of! Let’s Get Masquing guys!

Simple Skin Care Tips to Follow this Diwali

Hello there my lovelies … I absolutely love this time of the year …. Do you also feel the nip of the festivities in the air just like I do ?

It is the festival month and calls for celebrations galore. Playing dress-up is the part and parcel of everything festivals in our culture and it’s the time of the year when you want to look your best …… not that you don’t want to look your best any other time of the year…. hahahahha ….. It’s just that this time of the year is just so special !

I had been so busy lately that I didn’t have time to put together my wardrobe or accessories for Diwali night and all the other shenanigans that come with Diwali , parties, having guests over ,celebrations, going to people’s houses with gifts and receiving a whole lot of them when they come over . oh yes ! ….I am shameless in accepting that I love Diwali gifts and I love getting them as much as I love going shopping for Diwali gifts .

So it just so happened that I was playing dressup …. and I got into the mood of festivities and I pulled out my Indian Wear from my wardrobe and started to mix-and-match , you know that right !! that’s what I do best ……..what to do I cannot get enough of mixing and matching and I am happy to announce that all my outfits , my statement necklaces , my bangles even my sandals are ready already.

What next needs to prepped …. yeah you guessed it right… Skin ….

Our skin is our best accessory nothing can match a glowing skin. Right ain’t I.

So one of my favourites is the VLCC Haldi Chandan Facial Kit, which is a simple DIY facial kit . What I like most about it that it’s got everything from cleanser , to the massage cream , scrub and the pack….Making it so easy for me to use it plus it’s so gentle on my skin, leaving skin refreshed and healthy looking. My skin is always happy after using it .

Also very important for skin is to have a good night sleep . You have to make sure that you catch up with atlleast 6 to 7 hours of good beauty sleep so that your skin looks healthy and fresh.

Besides a good beauty sleep , always ….. always remember to take your make-up off . No matter how tired you are after a long day or a late night or feeling lazy after a plain lazy day …. just make sure you remove any trace of makeup from your face . Clean face ensures pores wouldn’t be clogged and your skin would look healthier. Also Use a good hydrating moisturiser or a serum before sleeping for a happy skin.

Also very important is to drink a lot of water . During the Diwali festival we tend to do go overboard with the whole eating out thing and eating a lot of things that you don’t usually eat everyday literally everyday. Flush it out by drinking a whole lot of water to hydrate yourself . It’s going to show on your skin and your skin is going to say thank you by looking fresh…..

 

Most importantly stay positive and happy. Nothing works better than being happy and a positive state of mind. Meanwhile enjoy the festivities , dress up, look beautiful , take care of your skin and let me know what you all you did this Diwali to take are of your skin.
