Konjac Sponge : All about it.

Hi friends!!!!!

Konjac sponge

Beauty product markets are currently flooded with ASIAN beauty products .  Beauty lovers have been testing and trying them . This ‘ Konjac Sponge’ is one of such products .  I saw some very good reviews about this in some blogs and could not resist to try this out. It is widely available in major online portals and the price  also varies . I have seen prices starting from 180 rs ( flipkart, paytm ) to 2000rs . As i was skeptical i  wanted to buy  at lower prices , in my excitement i ended up buying two.

Both are grey charcoal ones , one was for 180rs (Amazon)  other was for 499rs ( ebay).

They have different colors of sponges for different purposes . Charcoal ones for acne prone skin , yellow turmeric one for skin brightening ,white plain Konjac sponge , Green tea Konjac Sponge for detoxifying and brightening ,Rose Clay Heart Sponge,  for sensitive and dry skin.  There are different shapes as well . They have body sponges too.

 Texture :

Konjac sponge

Unused sponge is small ,firm and rough which  does not look like the one to be used on face .  Once soaked in water it becomes soft ,fat sponge .

 How to use

Konjac sponge

For first use you need to soak Konjac sponge in lukewarm water for 15-20 mins . On soaking it gets double the size of the dry one . From second use on wards it needs less then 2 mins to achieve the desirable size   . It can be used alone or along with the routine cleanser .

I use  daily at night with cleanser . Then I put a dollop of cleanser directly on the wet sponge for a light scrub. The sponge feels really nice and gentle. After washing, I rinse out the sponge ,gently squeeze it then hang it to dry .

SHELF LIFE

Konjac sponge

2 years  .

It is advisable to replace it once every 3 months ( Just like a tooth brush )

My take

The sponge is very gentle to use . I have been using it for last 2 months and i can say that i love it . Though it did not produce any drastic results it certainly reduced the size of my cystic acne. At at any given point of time i have 1-2 cysts on my face which would last for months with waxing and waning at the same place. Once i started using Konjac sponge ,   The cysts started to vanish by first week itself . This is the only thing which seems to work for my cystic acne .

Likes

  • Works well for cystic acne .
  • Useful for daily exfoliation .
  • Very gentle to use .
  • Safe for skin .
  • Suitable for sensitive skin .
  • Easy to use .
  • Eco friendly  , completely degradable .
  • Widely available online .

 DISLIKES

  • Doubtful availability offline.

8 Everyday Tea tree oil Beauty hacks

Tea tree oil

 

Photo :.angels.

Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree .It has antibacterial and anti fungal properties .Tea tree oil has a very important role in my daily regimen.I use it in multiple ways .I add two drops of it in everywhere imaginable. It is like my  ”do boondh zindagi ke”.

.1.Face pack

tea tree oil

Photo :J.B.Hill

I do not have any specific ways to use , as i do not have any allergic reactions to tea tree oil . I add 2 drops of tea tree oil to every pack i make. Both d.i.y and  commercial ones .It just adds a dose of acne coverage for me.

2.MOISTURIZER

I have an extremely oily acne prone skin that tea tree oil found a place in almost everything i use on my skin.Like the one before i have added few drops of tea tree oil to the night cream i daily use.

3.Spot

On red and inflamed ones i use a drop directly , i use a cotton bud to apply it on spot. The action of tea tree oil for acne is comparable to Benzyl Peroxide . But tea tree oil is less irritating and more time taking compared to the later.

If you have intolerance to the strong tea tree oil , you can consider adding it to Aloevera gel

4.post -pop up

I usually do not pick or pop my pimples as it can need to nasty scarring and spread. But there are times where it becomes an emergency . If i have to pop a pimple , i will do in a very sterile way . After popping up ,i apply tea tree oil topically on the raw spot . It burns a bit but it can reduce the inflammation and it can reduce the infectivity  (chances of infecting other areas)

5.steam

I take 10 mins of steam twice a week for both beauty and medical benefits . I add two drops of tea tree oil to the steam . Being an antibacterial it helps with bronchitis and sinusitis as well.

6.HAIR OIL

I add two drops of tea tree oil to the oil before oiling my hair. It helps with itchiness and minor scalp infections ( Read other tips 4 Home remedies for Itchy scalp  ). It is extremely useful in rainy season. (Related …10 MONSOON HAIR CARE tips )

7.for bathing water

I have a habit of adding essential oils to my bathing water . The aroma gives a nice feeling , plus tea tree oil helps with body odor and itchiness .

8.FOR MINOR CUTS

I am extremely prone to cuts and other minor injuries . If i can not get my hands on any antiseptic ,i will happily use tea tree oil ( i keep a bottle of it everywhere i go ). I also use this after threading my eyebrows .

 

Do not use tea tree oil , if you have extremely sensitive skin unless tested. Pubertal and prepubertal boys may experience some problems with it , as tea tree oil might have some harmonal effects .

10 MONSOON HAIR CARE tips

 

monsoon hair care tips

Along with everyone i too am entirely depressed this monsoon . August seemed to bring some happy moments with rains but that lasted for only few days. Hyderabad is actually getting some occasional ‘peak a boo’ kind of rains . Still you need to take care of your hair in the monsoon .

1.WASH IT

This season do not wash your hair too frequent  but make sure you wash it when you soak in rain to avoid infections.

Add vinegar to water before the final rinse.

 2 .DANDRUFF IS A RISK

monsoon hair care tips

Especially if you are exposed to rains frequently. There are chances that you might feel itchy in the scalp . Start using an Anti Dandruff shampoo in that case. Otherwise use a mild shampoo without much chemicals.

3.CONDITIONER IS A MUST

mansoon hair care tips

This season hair becomes frizzy and puffy easily . Do not forget a conditioner after you wash your hair . Use it from below the level of your ear. Using conditioner on the scalp can increase the risk of dandruff.

4.MILD PRODUCTS

Avoid dumping too many chemicals on your hair like sparys ,gels and colors  .Use mild hair care products.

5.OILING YOUR HAIR

Hot oil therapy once in while helps your keep up with the changing weather. However, avoid oiling before going out can be risky ,in case you get wet. The mixture of oil+ sweat+rain makes a tasty seat for infections.

6.GO SIMPLE

Monsoon is a tricky season. You can not leave your hair loose. There are chances that you might end up like Courteney Cox from her famous  Friends episode. If you go out with a complicated braid or bun and get damp ,it will get hours to get your hair dry. (Even thinking about it is giving me headache). So choose simple hairstyles like pony or some uncomplicated braids.

7.AVOID RUBBING

Rubbing your hair after a wash increases the risk of it getting frizzy. Instead try simply patting your hair with towel.

8.USE SOME SERUM

Use some serum at the ends of hair to reduce the risk of frizzing.

9.CLEAN COMB

Clean the comb once every week to reduce the risk of infections. Soak it in water with an anti-septic liquid in it before washing.

4 Home remedies for Itchy scalp

1,neem

You can simply add some NEEM leaves to the water you are using for head wash. If you have enough patience make a paste of NEEM leaves and apply 30 mins before head wash. As everyone knows NEEM has powerful antibiotic properties.

For other uses of NEEM click here.

2.Tea tree oil

I simply add 2-3 drops of TEA TREE OIL to the oil i use for oiling my hair ( so many oils in this ) before head wash . It helps to prevent infections.

3.lemon

Honey has anti bacterial properties and apple cider vinegar has anti inflammatory and pH balancing properties.

  • Mix 2 tsp of HONEY +1 tsp APPLE CIDER VINEGAR .
  •    Apply this to half damp hair & scalp with a cotton ball.
  • Wait for 10 mins before washing with shampoo

8 MONSOON SKIN CARE TIPS

Hi friends , how are you doing ? I know i am infrequent these days but unfortunately i underwent some surgery last week and am still in stage of recovery . I prepared this post ages ago  in June when it started raining occasionally and there was expectation for more. But to my dismay ,weather   changed into a mid-summer . I was in a dilemma whether to write about summer or rains .Finally now i can say that we are now officially into ‘rains’ . So here are my top 8  monsoon skin care tips .

1.Go Light 

woman-foundation-dripping_article_new

Make sure to go light with makeup otherwise all the make up products mixed with the dirt ,rain and what not ……. make your face like a messy cake.  This season unless it is necessary use just a tinted moisturizer or BB cream . Make sure to use a water proof eyeliner and mascara if you need to use.

2.AVOID BLEACHES

Bleaching at this time can damage your skin , so avoid as much as possible.

3.MOISTURIZING IS MUST

moisturizer-as-makeup

This season using moisturizer is a tricky thing . Your skin switches from dry to oily on it’s own . So use one oil free moisturizer which is a savior in both the times.

4.SUNCREEN TOO

sunblock creams

The UV rays can affect your skin even on shady or rainy days . Try using one waterproof and sweat proof sunscreen this season.

5.EXFOLIATION 

Because of the oil ,dirt and humidity there is an increased risk of blackheads and whiteheads .So exfoliate your skin at least twice a week.

6.HYDRATE YOURSELF

Rainy season ,there are chances that you feel less thirsty . Still you need to drink at least 7-8 glasses of water .

7. FOOT CARE

This season feet are the most vulnerable parts of body . Constantly remaining wet make them more prone to infections especially in toe spaces .Make sure to wash feet as soon as you return home and scrub occasionally ( for D.I.Y.  Foot scrub click here ) . Prefer sandals to shoes .

8. FIGHT SKIN INFECTIONS

There is an increased risk of infections especially at damp, sweaty areas of body .So make sure to wear only completely dry undergarments ,socks and shoes  .

Hope these  monsoon skin care tips help you in this rainy season.

grafist15_rope_hair_by_remstan-d3gpbh7

I am not done just with 10 basic hair care tips . I want to add few more hair care tips to the  list…..

1.DO NOT TIE HARD

I have mentioned in other  post as well that you should never braid your hair very tight. That will give instant discomfort and hair loss.

2.COMB VERTICALLY

No , do not comb vertically upwards .Divide your hair into 4 or 5 horizontal sections . Start from combing lowest section first . This way you can make your hair tangle free and reduce hair loss and a lot of pain .

3.CLEAN COMB

For hair care ,you need comb care too ..Do not share your comb with anyone and clean your comb often to avoid scalp infections and dandruff.

4.HEAT STYLES

It looks and feels very good to have that sleek straight hair or those romantic beach curls. But if you are going to use heat tools too often ,remember , it is not the safe bet.

5.WATER QUALITY

Hard water makes hair dry. Water with too much chlorine  in it , like that in swimming pools leaves hair damaged . So never forget to apply loads of ‘leave in’ conditioner before jumping into a pool or sea water .

6.TRIM OFTEN

Trim once every 3-4 months to avoid split ends and hair breakage .

7. EAT RIGHT

No matter how it starts ,but every health post of mine ends with the importance of eating correct quality and quantity of food. Proper food is the first step for proper hair care.

10 basic HAIR CARE tips for HEALTHY HAIR

8551939338_92e28c9c9c Hello friends!!!!!!!!!!!! i have already written many posts on hair care. But nowadays i seldom find any time to do hair packs or hair treatments  and i know that most pf you have same problem . That is why i ,this time , came up with basic hair care tips that do not demand much time or patience.

1.DO PROTECT

imagesbjh

                                                                               (this is how i go out )

Try to avoid exposing your hair to direct sunlight and dust . While going out tie a scarf  covering your hair.

2. DON’T BOIL

Do you know that you are not supposed to boil your hair?you should never use hot water for washing. It will make your hair dry and damaged. Use lukewarm water for washing and end with cold water.

3.USE CONDITIONER

Don’t forget to use a decent hair conditioner at the end of every wash.

4.PROPER USE OF CONDITIONER

Simply using a conditioner won’t solve your hair problems. You have to use it in a proper way . Never ever apply conditioner to the roots . It can actually get you dandruff .Apply it only from the level of ears.

5.DUMPING CHEMICALS

baby__shampoo_by_capricorn7769-d559y38

I know it is next to impossible to stop using shampoos and use ‘chemical free’ alternatives . But try using mild shampoos and also dilute your shampoo with water before pouring directly on head.This  hair care tip was once given to me by a trichologist.

6.COMBING WET HAIR

This is a serious no ,no. Combing wet makes it break and fall . If you have to do it ,use some detangling serum /gel /spray before harassing hair. Do not forget to use a ‘ wide toothed comb ‘ .

7.HAIR DRYER

Dryer is a handy and useful thing for busy gals . But try to reduce the frequency of it’s usage . Try a table fan instead if you can spare time . I usually take my hair wash in the evenings and let my hair dry naturally.

8.FREQUENCY OF HAIR WASH

Decide the frequency of hair wash depending on your time & need .Avoid washing it daily as it prevents the natural oils of hair from building up & can cause dandruff.

9. OIL THERAPY

vjhg

Never misjudge the good old ‘ oil massage’ . It improves the scalp blood circulation and helps healthy hair growth . Choice of hair oil is up to you.  Oil hair overnight or if you are very busy at least for half an hour before wash.

10.DEEP HAIR TREATMENTS

At least once a month , for proper hair care,try to find some time to give deep hair conditioning treatment to hair .Spend a day in hair spa or try some D.I.Y. method or you can even try some drug store deep hair masks.

   Stay tuned for few more tips.
