100% Natural and clean skin care products can be difficult to find especially if you have problematic skin. And if we do find some products.. they tend to be expensive.
I am the queen of DIYs when it comes to skin care. So whatever your skin type is whether it’s oily, dry or acne prone here are some great DIYs for every skin type you might need on a daily basis. For example, cleanser, toner, facial moisturizer and also body skin care products.
I used to have really bad acne, pimples and scars.. until I went ‘au natural’ with my whole skincare routine. Ever since then I haven’t turned back and my skin has never been better. Now I rarely get any pimples and if I get any scars, they disappear in less than A WEEK.
Harsh ingredients such as methylparaben and propylene glycol are really common in skin care products these days. If you’re acne prone or sensitive, these ingredients can make your skin worse. And if you have normal skin, they can cause pre-mature aging in the long run. And we always want to keep our skin wrinkle-free for as long as we can.
So ditch your current skin care products and go on a journey of natural skin care with me.. Trust me they will transform your skin and you won’t go back..(more…)

Suicide Squad was definitely one of my favourite movies this year. And the character of Harley Quinn took it to a whole new level. Her crazy personality mixed with the passion and love for Joker took my heart away.
Her costume seems quite complicated but because it’s rugged and messy.. it’s way EASIER to recreate than it looks. The makeup is the fun part because you can make it as sexy as you want for this halloween. Read more to check it out…
Fun Fact: The original character of Harley Quinn is actually Jewish as well as bisexual. (more…)

The thing about packing lunches is that.. I get lazy and then it becomes a last min thing where I just can’t get my shit together. And sometimes I get bored of packing the same type of lunch everyday. So I was looking through easy and quick vegan recipes and I thought why not share it with you guys.
So I thought putting together 5 lunch ideas to pack for school or work would be perfect for the 5 working days. This will give you the variety, the taste and most of them can be made in under 15 mins. They’re all vegan but still delicious. I literally got hungry just looking at the pictures below… (more…)
If I’d known these drinks before.. I would have drank my way to weight loss. I’ve only recently realized the SIGNIFICANT roles of detox drinks and teas when it comes to losing weight. These are the secrets coming from models and celebrities who use such drinks to stay fit. I have personally tested two of these drinks and I HIGHLY recommend them.
They not only help you lose weight, but also speed up the metabolism. So let’s have a look at them…
FUN FACT: Studies show that prolonged hours of sitting can prevent fat and sugars from being metabolized which can potentially result in cardiovascular diseases. (more…)
This hair care routine has tremendously recovered my damaged, brittle and weak hair. Now my hair is super strong, nourished, healthy and long. The oils and masks helps my hair to grow really long and strong. The deep conditioner keeps my protein and moisture levels balanced. The ACV rinse keeps the pH of my hair on acidic side. It can’t get any healthier than this!
It’s really important that when you brush your hair, you don’t break any using harsh hair brushes. My favourite hair brush is the Tangle Teezer. It literally takes out EVERY single knot in my hair and it doesn’t break them. I don’t know how it works but I’ve never used anything better than this.
I used to get scars even if I didn’t pick on my pimples / acne (I know TMI) and it’s worse when you’re brown or darker skin tone because those scars just take years to disappear. At one point, I literally couldn’t step outside my house without slapping some concealer on.. that’s how insecure it made me.
So I started using all natural face masks and treatments which would help them fade away faster. But I wanted to find something that would PREVENT them in the first place. I didn’t want to deal with them at all.
One day, I stumbled upon 10 step Korean skin care routine and I was OBSESSED because if you haven’t noticed.. it’s like every Korean has the most flawless skin ever. It’s so flawless I didn’t even believe it was real. I am not exaggerating at all. So it got me wondering how do they not have ANY kind of flaw on their faces. I researched for WEEKS and watched every single Korean skin care routine there is on YouTube. And BTW, their skin care products are decades ahead in terms of the technology and ingredients they use compared to Western skin care products.
So basically, at this point I have adapted 80% of the 10 step Korean skin care routine and I literally don’t get scars anymore. If I do (around that time of the month) they disappear in LESS THAN A WEEK.
You DON’T have to adopt or change the whole skin care routine because it’s only ONE thing that saves me from all those scars.. it’s SUNSCREEN.

I had heard this from an aesthetician a long time ago but I didn’t pay it any attention because I thought she was just sponsoring some products. But I really should have listened to her.
She explained me that when you pick your skin or pimples, it leaves a mark. But if you don’t protect your skin with sunscreen, that mark can turn darker because of the sun’s UV rays.. just like the way you get tanned. I especially didn’t listen to her because I lived in Ireland at the time and we barely get any sun there. But even the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can affect the scars and make them darker. So as soon as I started using sunscreen, I immediately noticed I didn’t even get the scars.. even if I had a few pimples (which I rarely get now because of this skin care regime). And when I get those ‘monthly’ pimples around the jawline, the scars literally fade in a few days.
Currently I am using Paula’s Choice Extra Care Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 50but I only recommend this one for dry skin types. It’s not greasy at all but it leaves a tiny bit of sheen on the face so if you’re oily.. it might leave your face looking like a disco ball. I really like it because it sits on my desert-skin really well. I absolutely love it because it doesn’t leave a white cast, it’s fragrance-free, cruelty-free and water resistant. I recommend you wear a sunscreen with minimum SPF 30 on an everyday basis. As well as this, use sunscreens with a good formula that doesn’t contain too many harsh chemicals. Paula’s Choice have really high quality skin care products at a decent price.They also have other sunscreens with Matte Finish if you have oily skin. And I am not sponsored by them. This is my honest opinion!
Watching Korean skin care routines, I’ve learnt that they highly recommend Japanese sunscreen brands such as Biore. If you want to find your perfect sunscreen, RatzillaCosme is the website for you. Because it’s literally a directory of reviews for every Korean and Japanese skin care product that is out there. It will filter out products specific to your skin type, sensitivity, ingredients etc…
Let me know if you guys want to see my full skin care routine because it has TREMENDOUSLY changed my skin for life.. and I am talking, the pimples, acne, scars, texture, pores, elasticity, plumpness etc…
