Mineral oil : why to avoid it?

9 Oct , 2015  

Mineral oil: why to avoid it

I have been living with natural options since 3 years now. I always promote the use of natural oils in your daily body and skin care. There is an oil available in the market, which I do not support or suggest to use. It is ‘ Mineral oil ’. I was astounded to see that baby oils and moisturizers contain this oil as their major ingredient. Babies have the most delicate and thin skin barrier. Whatever you apply is absorbed very quickly. I am sure nobody would like to apply such type of ingredient on their babies at least. More…

Skin barrier – Steps to make it strong

27 Sep , 2015  

Strong skin barrier

There has been a rise in people complaining about a skin condition “sensitive skin”. I do not classify sensitive skin as a skin type. It is a skin condition, which can be developed by any of the three skin types (oily, dry and combination skin). Sensitive skin is not hereditary and mostly is developed due to our regular habits since childhood. Poor diet, allergy conditions and applying cosmetics with dangerous chemicals are few of the reasons. More…

How to make your own face serum

I have been using natural oils on my body and facial regime for 3 years straight now. Oils have made me free from worrying about zits or bug bites. I wanted to share my experience with everyone but when I started interacting with people I got few negative response. People still are very skeptical in giving natural oils a chance in their skin care regime. Let us first understand what type of oil does skin produce. More…

Oily skin: cause and care

22 Sep , 2015  

oily-skin

Many of my clients nowadays are increasingly complaining of ‘oily skin’. Oily skin means secretion of sebum from facial pores more than normal. It is characterized by extreme oil production on the ‘T – zone’ (forehead, nose and chin area). Oil is produced whenever skin is irritated from outside or some imbalance from inside. Sebum is produced by ‘sebaceous gland’. Sebaceous gland is triggered to produce excess oil by many factors that I am going to discuss below.

Harmful chemicals we apply daily

11 Sep , 2015  

Harmful chemicals in our daily skincare

Everybody wants to look their best. They achieve this by using skincare or cosmetic products. Due to this, we daily absorb up to 130 types of harmful chemicals through different cosmetic products. There are many companies who claim to specify their products ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ but according to USDA a product needs to be only 70% certified organic to be called as ‘made with organic or natural. 30% of the remaining can easily accommodate toxic ingredients.
