Hey guys! It’s been so long since I last posted on my blog. I have been getting tonnes of messages asking me about my skin routine and what all I do to keep it fresh; so here it is my 3 super easy skincare routines that I live by!

  1. Banana Honey Masksoothing-and-moisturizing-diy-banana-face-mask-1-500x333(google images)

Method:

Mash half a banana in a bowl and add a teaspoon of honey. Mix the ingredients together. Apply all over your face and leave it on for about 10-15 mins before it rinsing off with luke warm water. VOILA!

It’s absolutely one of my favourite masks! It leaves my skin beautifully moisturised and glowing! Rich in potassium and moisture, banana hydrates and moisturizes dry skin, making it soft. Remember hydration is key!

For oily skin:

If you’ve got oily greasy skin, use a simple banana face mask with lemon juice and honey. Banana is a great exfoliator which helps slough off excess sebum on skin surface. It also contains moisture, potassium and vitamins e and c which all promote clear glowing skin. Mash a ripe banana with the back of a fork and combine 1 tablespoon of raw honey and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice to make an amazing face mask. Rinse off with a wet cloth or cold water.

Banana peels are excellent for acne; just rub it all over your effected area and rinse after 5-10 mins.

  2. Lemon Mask:

I get asked a lot how come i don’t have any acne or pimples on my face, all i have to say is, it’s all in the goodness of nature. Honey + lemon is the best cleanser ever! It removes all dirt and  impurities and leaves your face fresh and glowing!

  • Apply fresh-squeezed lemon juice to your entire face and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. …
  • Another option is squeeze the juice of one-half lemon and mix one to two tablespoons of raw honey in it. …
  • To exfoliate your skin, mix two teaspoons each of lemon juice and sugar

3.Turmeric and Gram flour mask

This probably one of my holy grail of all face masks. This mask gives the most instant glow possible because it exfoliates and detoxifies the skin, leaving it insanely gorgeous and glowing!

  1. For Acne Scars:  Mix besan, a pinch of turmeric powder and 2 table spoons of fresh milk to create a smooth paste and apply evenly on the face and neck area. After 20-25 minutes, wash off with lukewarm water to achieve glowing skin.
  2. For Dry, Flaky Skin:  Mix 2-3 drops of fresh lemon juice with 1 tablespoon besan, 1 teaspoon milk cream or olive oil and ½ teaspoon honey to form a paste. Apply it all over the face and rinse it thoroughly with water when it dries naturally.
  3. For Oily Skin:  Beat one egg white and add 2 tablespoons of besan to make it into a mask. Apply this mask for 15 minutes and wash it off with cold water.

 

So here are my 3 all time favourite skincare routines that i live by!! All these natural ingredients have made my skin glow and look more fresh, youthful and healthy!

So go on guys, treat your skin with some delicious food! 😉 ❤

My 5 Commandments for the perfect #Selfie!

selfieAs some would call me the Queen of Selfie (guilty) :p I wanted to share with you all the perfect ways to take the perfect selfie!

My 5 Commandments for the perfect #Selfie:

  1. Lighting: Lighting is EVERYTHING! I repeat EVERYTHING! Forget your conventional light bulbs, the best lighting is the day light! OH MY GOD the pictures come out amazing. It’s all about the lighting, not good lighting, not a good selfie! If you want to take an indoor picture make sure the light is not all over your face, it just not right!
  2. Angle: Know your angle! Never let anyone take a picture from below not only because the face look absolutely ridiculous, no one wants to see your nostrils, sweetheart! Always keep the camera on a level where your angle and lighting is perfect. Not too high, nor too low!
  3. Background: Always have a good background before to take a selfie. Yes background is that important! I prefer a simple background, it makes my selfie look 10 times better! Try to stay away from too much of a busy background, we want to see that beautiful face!
  4. Smize: Smiling with your eyes!! They say eyes are the window to your soul, than honey look into my eyes!! A slight squint (SLIGHT) gives your selfie that extra umph!
  5. Filters: Filters is the main key to a beautiful selfie! Today I’ll share with you the my top favourite apps. First being ‘Afterlight’ I absolutely love it! and ‘VOSCO cam’ YAAASSS. These two are my top favourites!

So there you have it my 5 rules for the perfect selfie! #Selfie away my darlings!!!

Bundles of love! ❤

Summer Dos!

As we all know summer has arrived and with it the rules that will guide us through it. So here are some fun tips or as I would like to say, the essential ‘Dos’ of summer, because let’s face it there’s no room for dont’s, so here we go:

Skin:

Summer-Makeup-For-Tanned-Skin(Google images)

Summer is all about skin! Beautiful glowing skin is what makes your mark this season. Always protect your skin from the sun using sunscreen, because whether it’s getting a tan or just sunbathing one must always apply sunscreen. You don’t want to end up with something you were not in for! Amazing skin is the reason why makeup will look flawless on you. Always remember to stay hydrated, i cannot emphasize on this more. Always carry a bottle of water with you at all times, water is the key element to glowing, youthful skin!

One makeup trick that I religiously follow when it comes to summer, is always applying shimmer on the apple of my checks once im done with my blusher! Always remember, apply minimum makeup, stain your lips, and get your shimmer on!

Nails:

Break out of the conventional pinks and reds that we are stuck wearing on our nails all the time. The beauty of summer is that we can play with colours like crazy, from greens to oranges to neon colours, work those nails like there’s no tomorrow. Want to go for a bright yellow or plain white? GO FOR IT! The brighter the colours the sexier the hands get this season.

Flash Tattoos:

I’m totally OBSESSED! I can’t begin to tell you how crazy gorg these flash tattoos look, just an extra umph to the summer festivities! I first got a bunch of these tattoos from The Doll House in Dubai, last year, and since then I’ve been hooked! Wherever I go for vacations and i see them, I just can’t resist! Definitely a summer ‘DO’! From Beyonce to Rihanna, everyones doing it ❤ A plain tee and a bunch of flash tattoos here and there, you’re set to blaze the summer heat a few degrees more 😉

 Hair:

Summer-Braids(Google images)

BRAIDS, BRAIDS, BEACH WAVES! YES summer is all about the orthodox braids and the sultry beach waves!! i love the two and with summer outfits, they look nothing less than perfect. Be is a side braid, fish tail or the traditional plate, anything goes.

Want to know an easy way of getting beach waves? All you need to do is make to plates on either side (slightly tight) leave its for half an hour 45 min before using a straightening iron on it before opening. VOILA! sexy waves at their service, just spray over them and you are good to go buddy 😀

Arm-candy & Rings:

Frost them arms and fingers with all that sweet arm-candy and rings & midis! It’s the new thing and I’m absolutely loving it. I just cannot leave the house without decorating my arms and hands with all these goodies, they look so beautiful ❤

Floral Prints:

The beautiful English roses has made it’s way through to summer ’15. From Gucci to Dolce & Gabbana, it’s all about floral for this years summer. A plain t-shirt with floral pants or dresses look so elegant and beautiful, be it a summer lunch out with friends or an evening tea, you cannot go wrong with a gorgeous floral print ❤

Summer Makeup rules:

Now to my favourite part, MAKEUP! Yes with the heat of summer, there are a few makeup tips that i would love to share with you all.

  • Keep it simple: You don’t want to layer up your skin with foundation. A good BB cream would do the trick. I would suggest mac’s BB cream or Bobbi Brown. I love them both, but choose according to you skin type. It is important to take care of your skin, rather than putting a thick layer of foundation, that might just end up melting off ones face. Keep it simple!
  • Brighten those lips: Go for corals, oranges, light pinks this season. the lighter and brighter the better!
  • Shimmer my eyes: First of all, take it down a notch, how? We all know winter is more about bold liners and dark lippers, summer is the total opposite. Apply thin liner (if needed) and go crazy on your macara! One makeup trick i learnt from Queen Beyonce, apply gold shimmer or eye shadow on the tear duct of your eye for that extra pop. It completely lifts your eyes and makes them stand out more!

So here are just some tips to a gorgeous summer. Will be updating you all with more tips and tricks for this season, so stay tuned and have a sexy ass summer!

Lots of love ❤

Bye bye Acne & Blemishes: HELLO summer glowing skin!

url(Google Images)

While going through my mail, i received tonnes of messages regarding acne, blemishes, dark spots, skin whitening and what my skincare routines are.

One skincare routine (tried & tested) that is absolutely God sent and is the solution to all these pesky issues, to get the perfect looking skin for the summer that is not only glowing but also leaves your skin hydrated, is the one that i have started doing at least twice a week. Here it goes:

  • 1 egg white (extremely good for acne and spots even if used alone)
  • 1 teaspoon honey (best hydrating, smoothing, glowing ingredient)
  • 1 squeezed lemon (best cleanser and whitener)

Mix all these beautiful elements in a blow and apply it all over your face and neck for up to 20-30 minutes before rinsing. It repairs damaged and dull skin, fights acne bacteria and lightens skin, scar and blemishes to no end!

Also, for those who ask me about how to get fairer skin or remove dark areas of skin like around the elbow or knees, take baking soda and squeeze a lemon, make a paste and apply on your dark areas, results are seen within days. It’s also excellent for teeth whitening! 😀

Get your summer glow on!

Lots of love ❤

Why I recommend Laser hair removal: My experience.

Las(Google Images)

HEY GUYS! I know it’s been so long since I have posted anything on my blog, busy with travelling and exam season. But guess what, I am back with lots of posts coming your way! 😀

So about 2-3 months back I FINALLY decided to get laser done on my face, mind you I was only determined to do my sideburns, but after extensive research I decided to do it all over my face (why the hell not?), before any other part of my body. In all honesty, it is one of the best decisions I have made that has completely changed my life in many aspects.

Laser burns the roots of your hair follicles, eliminating the factor of them growing back on the area of concern. It not only completely removes one’s hair but also gradually finishes your blemishes, uneven skin tone and also dark spots!

My makeup looks FAR more better than it used to on my skin! It settles and blends to greater degrees. My skin feels tight, smooth, clear and youthful and the best part is, any treatment I use on my face is absorbed more intensely, producing amazing results!

A lot of people have approached me about my skin and how different it looks and there you have it!

Yes it has a ‘pricking’ sensation that a lot of people get worried about, but trust me one gets used to it. With the right doctor and equipment you are good to go, my friend.

I’m extremely glad I went through with it, totally worth every penny! I highly highly highly recommend it to all of you especially if one is going through hormonal imbalance and have thick hair growth (something that has become extremely common in girls and women). In my opinion it is way better than waxing (especially your face, always against that) or threading. Check it out!

If you have any further questions regarding laser, inbox me or mail me at: ayeshabeautifulyou91@gmail.com

Also follow me on instagram: @ayeshjv & @beautifulyou91

A little prick of pain goes a long way 😉

LOTS of LOVE ❤
