Kate Middleton’s Beauty Secret

 

Bee Venom Facial
Bee Venom Facial

 

Kate Middleton’s Beauty Secret is Bee Vemon Facial. Yes! You read it right. Bee Venom Facial. The Duchess of Cambridge has been using Bee Venom to keep her skin flawless and even, ever since it was recommended to her by her stepmother-in-law Camilla.

This facial is a big hit among A-listers including Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue.

The venom used in facial is extracted using a small metal plate which is placed inside the hive. It carries a very small electrical charge that doesn’t harm the bee but makes it feel threatened so it releases venom.

The plate is hard so the bee retains its sting and survives, unlike when they sting a soft-bodied animal like us. The venom is then scraped off to be used in beauty products.

The secret ingredient is used to fool the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung. This causes the body to direct blood towards the area and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.

Collagen strengthens body tissue, while elastin is the protein that helps the skin to remain taught. The idea is that your skin will look fresher, younger and tighter almost immediately.

Dubbed the ‘natural botox’ it is a treatment I would definitely recommend and it is the only treatment I have had that has made an instant difference to the appearance of my skin

How to get rid of pregnancy stretch marks - Samiksha Danish

After pregnancy many women battle with post pregnancy stretch marks. Let us understand what causes stretch marks and how it can be dealt with.

What causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks happen when your body grows faster than your skin can keep up with. This causes the elastic fibers just under the surface of the skin to break, resulting in stretch marks.

Who Gets Stretch Marks?

If you have them, you’re in good company. About 90% of women will get them sometime after their sixth or seventh month of pregnancy.

If your mother had stretch marks, then you’re more likely to have them too, since genetics plays a role.

If you have a lighter complexion, you will tend to develop pinkish stretch marks. Darker-skinned women tend to get stretch marks that are lighter than their skin tone.

The brutal truth about stretch marks is that there is IT CAN NOT BE AVOIDED.  What can be done is that they can be controlled through steady weight gain and keeping your skin constantly hydrated.

Many women find that using homemade stretch marks oil helps them alleviate stretch marks that are already there. 

Here is a easy homemade Stretch mark oil that helps diminish existing stretch marks

Mix the following and store it in a bottle

½ cup extra virgin oil

1/4th cup aloe vera gel

liquid of 6 Vitamin E capsules

3-4 Vitamin A capsules.

(These capsules are easily available in any chemist shop).Blend all the ingredients and store the mixture in a bottle and put it in the refrigerator.

Apply daily on the stretch marks area .Don’t forget to shake the bottle well before you apply the lotion. Its a long process but it works.

Olive oil provides nutrients to the skin. It packs vitamins A, D and E along with other nutrients into the stretch marks.

Alternatively you could get into the habit of applying olive oil on stretch marks immediately after you take bath.

We all love getting facials done and love to look FAB . But how much is a crazy amount to spend on facials?

If you have the money, then nothing is crazy. Well I think that depends on the individuals thinking.

Kim Kardashian  spent a whopping $21,600 on power facial to go from dull to dazzling before her  spring wedding to Kanye West. That is approximately 79,336.80 AED and 1,303,992 INR . This is insaneeee. But Like I said if you have the money might-es-well spend it . Right ?  ( i wouldn’t)

The beauty boot camp, which includes eight sessions, offers such extravagant services as a Diamond Peel.

Get rid of Dark armpits  naturally
Get rid of Dark armpits naturally

 

Having Dark Underarms is not a disease. Some of the main causes of dark underarms are shaving, regular use of hair removing creams, excessive sweating, poor ventilation of underarms, accumulation of dead cells, use of alcohol-based deodorants and antiperspirants, excessive smoking, and health problems like obesity or diabetes. 

Let’s look into some natural remedies for dark underarms. These remedies might take some time to show results, but one this is for sure and that is they are 100% safe, effective, natural and affordable and that too without any side effects.

 

1. Potato:

The mild acidic property present in potato is a kind of great natural bleaching agent.

  • Take a thin slice of potato and rub your underarms with it for about 5-10 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water.
  • Alternatively, grate a potato and squeeze out the juice from the grated things. Apply this juice to your underarms with the help of your fingers or a cotton ball. Leave it for about 10 minutes and then wash off.

Use potatoes at least twice a day to see faster results which you can expect to see in seven days time with lightened skin under your arms.

2. Baking soda

A scrub made with baking soda can also get you rid of damaged and dead cell leading to unclogging pores. It also kills the germs to give you a clean odor-free and lightened underarm.

  • Take some baking soda and water. Mix them to make a thick paste. Apply them to your underarms and gently scrub the area. Wash off and pat dry the skin.
  • If you don’t want such an elaborate exercise, mix the baking soda with a little water and just wipe your underarms with this solution.

3. Lemons:

Why leave Lemons behind. Lemon is not only a natural cleanser (why else would restaurants use washing bowls with warm water having lemon wedges in them!) but also has anti-bacterial and anti-septic properties. Its acidic properties help extensively in lightening your skin along with exfoliating dead skin cells. So, why not use lemon for lightening your dark underarms?

  • Take a thick slice of lemon and rub your underarms daily before you go to have bath. Apply some moisturizer after bath as lemon also tends to make skin dry. You may also use lemon in different way, as told in the next point, to ensure it doesn’t dries up your skin.
  • Add a pinch or two of tumeric, honey or yogurt to lemon juice. This will give you something like a paste. Apply this to your dark underarms and leave for about 10 minutes. Now wash off with water.

Banish Dark Circles Naturally

 

Dark circles have been a huge problem for my mother, and for years I’ve seen her use this Potatoes for her dark circles. Yes! you heard it right, POTATOES.  Potatoes are known to have several  benefits for the skin.

My mother has been using potatoes for her skin for many many years now and I can say it has worked wonders for her.

potato

But why Potatoes

According to My Dark Circles Blog, potatoes contain catecholase (or catechol oxidase), an enzyme that lightens skin. When potato, along with its effective enzyme, is placed under the eyes, dark circles get lighter. Eventually, with long term use of potato as an under eye treatment, dark circles can diminish to the point where they are practically invisible.

The easiest way to use potatoes for under eyes, is to slice up a two pieces of potatoes and place that on your eyes for 30 minutes. Doing so twice a week will result in lightened under eyes.

The other alternative is to grate half a potato and place that  on your eyes using a cotton pad. I find this method works better as the juices penetrate a lot better than sliced up pieces. This is what my mother has been doing for years now.
