Nivea | nourishing lotion | Body Milk

A good body cream is a best friend for people with dry and sensitive skin type. Scratching the dehydrated skin can cause rashes and even cuts.

I shave my entire body. Shaving makes the skin dry and very sensitive. In the process of itching, I realized that I was abusing my skin for so long. I had to get out of the situation as soon as possible, so that the cut don’t leave marks on my body.

I came across Nivea Body Milk in a store. I decided to try the product because I have used other products by the same brand and they performed quite well.

The product comes in a blue squeezable bottle. The lotion is very easy to use. It has runny consistency and is light weight. The white lotion gets absorbed very easily.

The product claims to keep you nourished for 48 hours. In reality it can keep you moisturized for a good 24 hours or more. Nivea promises that the product is compatible with the skin and quality ingredients are used.

After application, the skin is left soft and well hydrated. It contains almond oil which is very good for dry skin. It helps to balance the absorption of moisture and water loss. Almond oil soaks in quickly and is a powerful moisturizer.

Nivea Body Milk is one of my favourite body lotion. I apply it on damp skin right after shower.

The only cons of this product is that it has a strong fragrance.

Question 1) Is the product only for the very dry skin?

Answer) It is a light weight product, combination skin people can also use.

Question 2) Can we skip sunscreen after using it?

Answer) NO! This is a moisturizer, no moisturizer can replace a sunscreen.

Question 3) Price?

Answer) 200 ml of the product retails for INR 220/-.

Dermaplanning at home


Dermaplanning is scraping the surface of the skin to remove dead skin cells.

Pros
Smooth skin
Younger looking skin

Cons
Cause breakouts in sensitive skin

Is dermaplanning painful?
Not at all. It is just sliding sharp blade across your face.

Things you should know before.
Always use sharp blade.
If you are reusing an older one, make sure it is sanitized.
Do not share your razor.
Use that razor on your face only.
Apply optimum pressure while scraping.
Scrape in short strokes.
Hold the area being operated upon tight, to avoid cuts.

Will the hair grow back thick?
No. We feel so because the hair is shaved at an angle. When the hair comes on the surface after being shaved, we touch the edges.

It may be in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, cysts, pimples and peeling skin.

How do you identify that your skin is purging and not breaking out?


Since purging accelerates the skin cells regeneration, it intensifies the existing conditions. For example,makes the existing pimple under the skin pop up, the blackheads that were under process, suddenly becomes visible.

Bad breath tips.

Bad breath is a problem not many people want to talk about. I have listed a few words of advice to avoid bad breath.
1. Brush your teeth and scrape your tongue daily.
2. Use a mouth rinse.
3. Keep your mouth hydrated.
4. Sleep on your sides, so that if you sleep on your back and snore, your mouth will be open and serve as a breeding place for the bacteria.

Oily Hair Tips

Our scalp is too a part of our skin. Every pore in our skin has a gland that secrets oil, called sebum. For scalps, optimum amount of sebum keeps our hair smooth and shining. Oily hair conditions take place when the sebum secretion is more than normal. Following are a few hacks for oily hair:


1. Don’t wash hair too often: I know washing hair helps in removing oil from the scalp. But with every wash, comes a lot of rubbing and scrubbing. Disturbing scalp too much irritates it and secrets more oil.


2. Don’t use a cream based shampoo:  You can identify if a shampoo is cream based or not . If it is opaque, then it is cream based. And if it looks translucent, then it is not cream based.


3. Multani mitti: known as one of the best organic absorbents. Fullers earth ,on our face, absorbs and removes extra oils and pulls out the dirt from the pores. It performs the same function on our scalp. You can DIY a hair mask by mixing multani mitti with the drops of water, until and unless it has a thick paste like consistency. Apply. Later, wash it off with cold water.


4. Keep your hair tools clean: Dirty hair tools accumulate a lot of gunk on the scalp and hair surface.


5. Use conditioner at the hair ends: Your scalp already produces much oil to keep it tamed. So apply the conditioners on the ends, and avoid on the roots.


6. Use dry shampoo or baby powder: Some of you might have such an oily scalp and hair that it is just impossible to avoid shampooing. In this case, you can use a dry shampoo or a baby powder as a solution and increase the time period between the two consecutive washes.

Dry Hair Tips.


⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are many girls like me, out there, who have to deal with dry hair. I have some tips to handle your anhydrous hair.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Do not shampoo your mane too often: Shampoos deprive your hair of the natural oils and their goodness, leaving your scalp too arid and crawly.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Conditioner is a must: Your arid hair needs to be conditioned very deeply, and thoroughly. You can also use warm coconut oil for deep conditioning.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Use wooden comb: Plastic comb causes static in you hair,that tend to irritate you more. Wooden comb doesn’t steal the oils of your scalp, neither does it create static.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Trim the split ends regularly: Damaged and split ends should be removed as soon as possible, if not, they affect the entire length of the hair.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Use the sulfate free hair products: Sulfate is added to the shampoo to make it lather more. People with dry hair should check if their product has sulfate content in them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These were some of the words of advice that I wanted to share with all of you people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
