3 Must have products from Ras Luxury Oils




Hello Chicsters!

Hope you have been doing well. Today I am here to talk about my new found love for an all natural skincare brand. Beauty products are my weakness but you have to listen to your skin too. As I have mentioned this in my prior posts, I have a very sensitive skin and hence I tend to lean towards natural skincare brands . Recently, my skin was acting up and so to calm it down I had to follow a healthy diet and an all natural skincare routine. After this ordeal, I decided to simplify my skincare routine but this time with natural oils. Not that I am ditching other brands for good, it’s just that probably my skin needs a break from it, to resort to something more natural. And then RAS Luxury Oils happened! That’s the new found love am talking about.

Top 5 Pre-wedding Shoot Locations in India


Hello Chicsters!



October has begun and so has the season of weddings and galore. But one trend that’s caught my eye is the Pre-wedding shoot. This trend has been around for a while now and is only seeing the upward curve. At least I like to look at these pictures more than any wedding picture. It gives an opportunity to the bride and the groom to get to know each other better and also to get comfortable in front of the camera for the D-day. Also, the pre-wedding shoot acts as a quick stress buster from the hustle of finding wedding vendors. BTW, you can find a perfect pre wedding photographer for your shoot on WedMeGood. Not just a photographer, you can find your wedding venue, makeup artist and more on this site and their app.  In fact for the couple, this is an amazing opportunity to bring out their chemistry which they may be shy off to capture on their wedding day in front of all the guests. But according to me, the location matters too. Here I list down some of the best locations for a pre-wedding photoshoot which will make you fall in love:
Top 5 Pre-wedding Shoot Locations in India
1. The Taj Mahal, Agra: The symbol of love has to top the list. Celebrate eternal love and capture it with lush green lawns and the beautiful white structure. To add the perfect dreamy touch of Bollywood films, there is always breeze blowing naturally. So the breeze, the hair blowing, your prince carrying you in his arms…everything is sure to come true. Here’s a tip: Sunrise at Taj is beautiful. Reach early for the perfect shot.

If you are Bollywood buff as I am, you can’t miss this place. It stands magnificently on the shores of the bay of Bengal and against the beautiful backdrop, you recreate the passion, the love and make new memories to cherish forever.

You need not be dressed in heavy lehengas and sarees or you don't need heavy makeup. The simplicity of this place and the gorgeous sunset prove to be the perfect backdrop for capturing your love.

How to check if your wet wipes are safe or not? Follow this simple Flame Test to know the results..


Hello Chicsters!


Hope you all are doing well. Just like any other organ of our body, our skin needs equal amount of care. Hence, it is very important that we choose the right products for our skin. How many of us really take the pain to look at the ingredients of our skin care products. Not many, but I do. For someone like me who has a sensitive skin, I make sure I make no compromise in terms of the choosing the products that are best for it.

I recently posted about Mother Sparsh Wet Wipes, this product has topped my list of must-haves. As compared to the other wet wipes in the market, this one is a lot better. It is as good as just cotton and water. The other wet wipes consist of harsh and harmful chemicals which can cause damage to your skin. Also,most of these brands use polyester fabric to make these wipes. The same material is used in making plastic, pipes and wires. Imagine the horror of skin allergies and red patches...never letting that happen to me! Most brands may not even mention this. But this test is at your rescue. This is called the flame test which will help you find out if your wipes contain polyester or not.
How to check if your wet wipes are safe or not? Follow this simple Flame Test to know the results


How to check if your wet wipes are safe or not? Follow this simple Flame Test to know the results
The products you need for this are easily available at home. So, here is what you need:
  • Wet wipes (I have taken 2 brands for better comparison)
  • Candle
  • Match box
The procedure of the flame test.
Step  1: Remove one wipe and allow it to dry
Step 2: Now light the candle with the help of the matchstick
Step 3: Hold the corner of the wet wipe near the candle flame
How to check if your wet wipes are safe or not? Follow this simple Flame Test to know the results..

How do you find out if your brand uses polyester or not?
There two factors to determine:
  1. Fragrance: If your wet wipe smells like plastic after burning it, be rest assured you have purchased a product which consists high amount of polyester. It is synthetically made out of plastic waste. If you get the smell like that of a burnt cloth, it means that your wet wipe is made out of natural fabric with no adulteration. 
  2. The residue: After burning the wipe, if it has hard black residue, it means that there is a presence of polyester in it. However, if it turns into ash, that means it has been made out of 100% natural plant fabric.
How to check if your wet wipes are safe or not? Follow this simple Flame Test to know the results
Believe it or not, researchers have found out polyester in 99% of the wet wipes brands that are being sold in the market. The percentage of polyester will surely vary. But whether you take a small amount of poison or large quantity, it is dangerous in every way. Hence I decided to do this test too and show you how my favourite Mother Sparsh wipes stood out as it successfully passed the test. Proper cleansing is important for our skin but it doesn’t need harmful chemicals for it. Give it the gift of nature. Mother Sparsh wet wipes contain 98% water.

Hope you enjoyed reading the blog and I really urge you all to make the right choice for your skin. Your healthy self will totally show up on your skin. Chao!

Options to preventing jaw bone loss following tooth loss


Hello Chicsters! 

Most people understand that poor oral care can cause gum disease to develop and cause tooth decay. However, it's not quite as well known that those conditions can cause bone loss in the jaw, as well. When the health of the teeth and gums continues to worsen, it can create the perfect condition for bacteria to spread. The bacteria will dive deeper into the gums, attacking the ligaments that connect the teeth to the bone.

Options to preventing jaw bone loss following tooth loss

A Deeper Look at Bone Loss

The loss of just one tooth can compromise the overall health of the entire jawbone. This is because the integrity of the jawbone is maintained through the act of chewing. As we chew our foods, the pressure that action puts on the jaw stimulates bone strength, but, when a tooth is missing, the body reabsorbs the unprotected bone. Within one year after the loss of a tooth, as much as 25% of the bone is lost.

Bone loss first occurs surrounding the supporting teeth, where the tooth loss occurred. The alveolar bone, which consists of ridges in which the tooth is secured, begin to degrade. Even when dentures are used to replace the teeth, bone loss still affects the alveolar bone, because there are no roots to secure the artificial teeth in place. This means there's significantly less pressure on the bone and some research suggests that even full dentures only provide 10% of the support provided by natural teeth.

When an individual loses upper teeth, bone loss can become more advanced, because the missing tooth exposes the sinus cavity. The increased air pressure in the sinus cavity accelerates bone loss. Additional factors that can contribute to advanced bone loss are misaligned teeth or infections that directly target and damage the bone.

Can Bone Loss Be Prevented?

The primary goal, of course, is to prevent bone loss, before it can occur. When an individual loses a tooth, it's important to replace that tooth as soon as possible. An implant is the best method for replacing the tooth, because it also uses a root system similar to that of a natural tooth. The root portion of the implant helps to secure the tooth and provides the type of pressure that promotes a strong and healthy jawbone.

While a dental implant is best in replacing a single tooth, more advanced tooth loss can be repaired with a fixed implant-supported bridge. When an implant, or a four-tooth bridge utilizing at least two implants, is used, up to 99% of the natural chewing power is restored. In some cases, dentures that incorporate two or more implants may be used to restore up to 80% of the individual's normal chewing strength. By restoring chewing power as much as possible, these methods are especially helpful in preventing bone loss.

Additional Options to Repairing Bone Loss

One common treatment for bone loss is grafting. This is often done to build up the height and width of the bone, when there isn't enough bone still present to secure a dental implant in place. For some patients, bone grafting can also be used to rebuild the bone that has decayed around the teeth, due to chronic gum disease. This helps maintain the integrity of the mouth and prevents future dental problems that would otherwise occur as a result of the bone loss.

Bone grafting does more than simply replace eroded bone. Once applied, it will stimulate the growth of the jawbone, so the graft will be replaced with new, natural bone. Over the years, bone grafting has advanced in both procedures and in the materials used. Now, bone grafting takes much less time to heal, so the patient can return to a normal routine much earlier.

As previously mentioned, the loss of upper teeth can expose the sinus cavity and caused more advanced bone loss to occur. Fortunately, there is a treatment for this as well. When the upper back teeth have been lost, there will still be a layer of bone to separate the sinus cavity from the oral cavity, but this is an extremely thin and fragile layer of bone. It's far too thin to support a dental implant, so a sinus lift becomes necessary. There is a membrane that lines the sinus cavity and, in this procedure, that membrane is pushed back and away from the oral cavity. The exposed gap is filled with bone grafting material to help strengthen the upper jawbone. After the bone graft heals, implants can be inserted to protect the bone and restore chewing ability.

If patients act quickly and see a dentist as soon as they experience tooth loss, bone grafting and sinus lifting may not be necessary at all. Using digital imaging, such as that provided by a CT scanner, the dentist can get a detailed look at your oral cavity. This will help the dentist determine the status of your teeth, gums, and jawbone.

Through this examination it will be possible to determine if you can receive dental implants without a bone graft. However, timing is important, because bone loss can begin very quickly, after the loss of a tooth. The sooner you consult a dentist about your tooth loss, the more likely it will be that bone grafting can be avoided.

Is eyebrow transplant effective if my brows have always been sparse?



Hello Chicsters!

Sparse brows occur for numerous reasons. Sometimes, it is your genes. Scarring could be your issue. Most often, it is due to over plucking your brows in your younger years.

You cannot turn back time and teach your younger self about what is to come; though many people will wish they could. You seek an alternative instead, such as powders, tattoos, liners, fake brows that resemble pasted on felt, or put yourself through whatever the new fad that promises thicker, longer, or darker brows. Alternatively, you can consider an eyebrow transplant that uses real hair and never appears fake.

  3. Kaya Hair health gel:
Forest Essentials Bhringraj Hair Vitalizer (Rs. 975/- for 100ml)
How to Use: Spray the vitalizer onto the dry scalp after parting the hair in sections. Gently massage for 1 minute
Oiling and massaging your scalp is essential as this helps not only helps in destressing but will in turn even compliment hair growth. One of my favourite Ayurveda brand is Forest Essentials and their Bhringraj Hair Vitalizer is the absolute bombdiggity! This hair vitalizer is enriched with some nutritious Ayurvedic herbal extracts which will prevent your hair against breakage and strengthen your hair follicles. The formula of this product will not only prevent hair loss from breakage but will also improve its texture and volume. The Bhringraj hair vitalizer is made with the goodness of Amla, arnica, hibiscus, organic aloe vera, green tea and most importantly Bhringraj oil.

Tip: Wrapping a hot, wet towel around your hair will help absorb the oil faster.

Vichy Dercos Nutri-Repair Mask (Price: Rs. 1700/- for 200ml)
How to Use: Apply to your hair, avoiding the roots. Massage the hair down to the ends to help it penetrate fully. Untangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb and tie your hair up in a bun. Leave to rest for a few minutes and rinse carefully.
Climatic changes can strip your hair of moisture because of which deep conditioners need to form a cruicial step of your haircare routine. The nourishing and repairing Vichy Dercos Nutri-Repair Mask will help to transform even the driest hair into healthy hair. As the name suggests this product was formulated specially to treat dry, damaged hair. The smooth, melt in texture of the product gives a soft and healthy look post application. Even though the instructions suggest applying the product for 3-4minutes, I prefer to keep the product on for 10minutes to deeply condition it. This product has the goodness of Keratino-complex meaning 5 amino acids and plant oils that will help repair, restore and strengthen the hair.

Tip: Using cold water for your last rinse will strengthen your hair strands and reduce breakage post shower.

How to Use: Pour a small amount of gel onto the palm of your hand. Apply the gel with fingertips only to the roots of your hair. Lightly rub onto the scalp and leave overnight. Wash off next morning.Colors, bleaches, weather changes, pollution usually strip the scalp off its essential oils making it itchy and flaky. So in order to restore the health of your hair and get rid of dryness Kaya introduced the Kaya Hair health gel. The Kaya Hair Health gel is specially formulated to reach the hair at its root and help control hair loss. This lightweight gel gets absorbed almost instantly by the hair leaving you with you with a soothing, cooling effect. This formula is made with Protein, Mineral & Vitamin Complex that are essential to curb any mineral deficiencies that may lead to hair loss. Also, the goodness of Aloe vera helps tame frizzy hair while as the Hibiscus nourishes your hair from within.
