Some of our FAVORITE PRODUCTS!

With the countless numbers of products out there to choose from, here are a few of my favorite go to hair and skin care products that I absolutely love!

I’ve always had the hardest time finding the right shampoo and conditioner that I can stay committed to. I am so glad I tried the new Loreal Evercreme hair care line. The  1. Loreal Evercreme Nourishing Shampoo  and 2. Loreal Evercreme Nourishing Conditioner are amazing and leave my hair feeling soft, silky, nourished and healthy! While in the shower, leave the conditioner on for 3-5mins  and clip your hair in to a bun as this will help lock in the nutrients before you wash out your hair. After you wash your hair out you will notice the difference instantly and your hair will be left smelling great. 

The 3. Loreal Evercreme Deep Nourishing Masque is another great product by Loreal. Using a hair masque once or twice in 2 weeks is really good for your hair. You really begin to notice healthier and shinier hair after a couple uses. 

The 4. Loreal Evercreme Nourishing Leave-In Spray and 5. It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin are both amazing leave-in conditioners. I have been using “It’s a 10” for a while now and it really helps detangle and and protect my hair from any applied heat. The product also has keratin, which is protein for your hair. After washing your hair, spray either leave-in conditioners generously all over wet to damp hair. I like to air dry my hair for 15 mins and then clip my hair in to a loose bun for another 15 mins as this help lock in the moisture and makes your hair smell great once it’s let loose.

I’ve tried many hairsprays over the years and the 6. Sebastian Shaper Hairspray is probably the best one yet. This light weight non-greasy hairspray is great for styling yet keeping your hair looking natural. I absolutely hate it when hairsprays leave your hair feeling stiff, sticky, and over worked. The Sebastian hairspray gives you that desired hold minus all the setbacks.

Ever since I can remember, I have been using 7. Neutrogena Oil Free Deep Clean Cream Cleanser face wash. This face wash has never proven me wrong and it always leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. This product proves that you don’t need high end products to get the same results. It is essential to wash your face every day and night to keep your face clean and keep your pores from getting clogged. Being a  women, I get no better feeling than taking off my make-up and washing my face the second I come home.

Now I know that many women use make up wipes to remove their makeup, but personally, I find it too harsh for my skin. Ever since I started wearing make-up my mom introduced me to 8. Pond’s Cold Cream. I highly recommend this as it literally removes every ounce of make-up off your face. The key is to take a small amount of Pond’s Cold Cream and rub it gently on your face starting with your eyes. Then take some wet tissue and GENTLY (you don’t want to pull at your skin as this will create wrinkles and lines in the long run) wipe off the cold cream off your face. You can keep adding more cold cream and wiping it off as needed.

Moisturizing is key to preventing dry skin. I use 9. Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture, SPF 15 as it is a light weight moisturizer with SPF in it. It’s important to always protect your skin from the sun, and having a little SPF in your daily moisturizer helps maintain youthful looking skin.

I am sure a lot of you use some form of chapstick on daily basis, and I used to myself. I used to be so addicted to chapstick that I couldn’t leave the house without it and applied it countless amounts of times in a day. But then I switched to 10.  Vaseline and never looked back. I apply it once, or twice max a day and it leaves my lips feeling soft and nourished all day. Vaseline is also great for applying under lipstick as it keeps the color on longer without getting dried out and clumpy.

May it be because of the changing weather, hot showers, or some other reason, dry skin is a huge issue a lot of us deal with. I discovered a great remedy to this problem. The key is to mix a little bit of 11. Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Creme 12. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil and apply it all over your body. You will notice results immediately! The Cocoa Butter Creme and Cocoa Butter oil mixed together create an amazing concoction for soft, healthy, and supple skin. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Oil is also amazing for scars, burns, dryness and more. I tend to apply this combo twice a day for best results.

Having healthy hair and skin doesn’t have to be so difficult, impossible, or expensive anymore. My go to products are the absolute best, and you should try whichever products suits your needs best.

BEAUTY TIP #1 – The Miracle of ALMOND OIL

Happy Sunday Everyone! Every week we will be sharing our beauty secrets with you. Thanks to my co-stylist Urvika for having the best home remedies for perfect skin/hair! Taking care of your skin and hair is so essential for looking and feeling good about yourself.

P.S. I would NEVER recommend a product/treatment without experiencing it first hand and actually noticing results myself. I am all about natural remedies that actually work!

Today’s Tip Features: 

ALMOND OIL 

Almond oil is the perfect remedy for DRY SKIN, THIN/DRY HAIR, and DARK CIRCLES/WRINKLES. Any brand of almond can be used. I use KTC Almond Oil.

Thin/Dry Hair: 

Being Indian, our moms have always told us about oiling our hair at least once a week in order to have healthy hair. Nowadays, with all the straightening, blow drying, and all the other damage our poor hair goes through, it is so important to put the lost nutrients back in to our scalps. Almond oil actually does help thicken hair and bring a shiny healthy glow to you hair! For those of you suffering from major hair fall and dry lifeless hair, almond oil is for you!

Here’s what you do: heat a small cup of almond oil for 30 secs in the microwave. Massage gently on to scalp and roots of hair. Leave in hair for at least 40 mins. Wrap a hot towel on your head for 5minutes (the steam from the towel releases moisture in to hair and increases blood circulation). Wash out hair with shampoo – twice if needed in order to get the oil completely out of your hair.

For best results, oil hair 1-2 times a week.

Dark Circles/Wrinkles: 

Whether it is lack of sleep, hereditary, or other factors, no one loves dark circles. Those suffering from it, myself include, are always trying to find the right product to remedy this problem. After being unsuccessful with even the best of brands, I started using almond oil and really began to notice a difference.

Here’s what you do: Begin by working with a clean canvas – a washed face. Before going to sleep, dab some almond oil under your eyes and massage gently in a circular motion. This will bring a radiance and suppleness to the skin. Also, because almond oil is enriched with vitamin E, it helps prevent wrinkles and is a great source for youthful looking skin. We like to call almond oil the fountain of youth.

Dry Skin: 

Dry skin is an issue almost all of us deal with from time to time. Therefore, it is essential to frequently moisturize your skin.

Here’s what you do: Massage almond oil gently on to affected areas daily. Moisturizing after showering is best because your skin absorbs the most moisture then. For better results, try heating the oil for 30 seconds and then applying.

Please note: Results may vary from person to person 

Try the Almond Oil remedy yourself and tell us what you think!

Glad we could help!
