Who doesn’t love fresh, glowing, beautiful skin? Specially when you’re in your 20’s and 30’s you definitely want to take better care of your skin (of course 40’s and above included). While monthly facials are a thing, but not everyone can afford monthly salon services. So if you’re looking for ways to keep your skin soft, fresh and clean then this Homemade (& Natural) Lemon & Honey Face Mask is all you need.

This super easy, effective and affordable face mask made with only two ingredients is a perfect facial treatment at home. The ingredients that are likely to be in your kitchen at all times, can help soothe, heal and even out your skin tone. Isn’t that genius?

I have been experimenting with homemade face masks lately and that’s when I started these Natural Wonders series on the blog. I’ve used homemade Miracle face mask (read here) to combat acne and have absolutely loved the results. So when I was trying this one I was expecting equally good results right away, as this Lemon & Honey Face Mask uses Honey that is a natural antioxidant and antibacterial agent that absorbs impurities from the skin and Lemons are filled with AHA’s and BHA’s (alien terms alert!) Alpha hydroxy acids and Beta hydroxy acids which makes lemons a great natural exfoliate, rich in vitamin C that helps in skin brightening and exfoliation.
In one line, this face mask makes your skin look young, smooth, radiant, acne free, even toned and beautiful!
Here how to make this Natural Lemon & Honey Face Mask:
Things you’ll need 
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 lemon
  • In a bowl squeeze lemon, add honey and mix with a spoon until it’s liquid in consistency
  • Clean your face and pat dry. keep your hair pulled back from your face as the mask will be sticky
  •  Apply the mask on your face avoiding the eye area
  • Let your skin soak all the natural wonders for 15-20 minutes
  •  Rinse off with cold water and gently pat dry your skin
  •  Apply your favorite moisturizer and enjoy beautiful glowing skin
I use this mask at night, once a week because I feel night time is actually the best time to make the skin breathe and when you wake up in the morning you’ve beautiful, smooth and clean skin.

If you try this, let me know how it works for you! And, if you have any skincare suggestions, leave me a comment!

Sparkly 14th Aug Nails – Step-by-Step

We are only 3 days away from 14th August, Independence Day celebrations and can feel the enthusiasm in the people. Every place has turned green and white, there are Independence day special discounts and Independence day special collections have also hit the stores. I already have bought my special Kurta for Independence day (which I’ll reveal later sometime) and decided to do some Independence Day Nail Art to go with it.

This Nail Art is super easy and so wearable. With only 4 nail products you can achieve this nail art in just no time at all and can flaunt your sparkly nails. As this one’s an Independence Day Special post so the nail colors had to be green and white but then I added some glitter on it to give it some bling and loved how sparkly and pretty it turned out.

It’s just one simple trick and for that you need to be a Mani Pro to get fancy looking set of nails. Give it a try (in your choice of colors perhaps) and if you’re really cool (which you definitely are) you’ll share the picture of your sparkly nail art in the comments below.
Lets get started:
Things you’ll Need
  • Green polish
  • White polish
  • Green Glitter polish
  • Clear Top Coat
  • Makeup sponge 

 Step 1: Apply Green polish on nails including thumb, except the ring finger.

Step 2: Apply white nail polish on the ring finger nail. You can alternate green and white nail color on the fingers too.
Step-3-Nail-Art-TicklethosetastebudsStep 3: Here’s the little trick we talked about and why I said we’ll be using a make sponge. Apply glitter nail polish to the corner of the make sponge. While its still wet dab it on to the white nail color near the bed of the nail. Dab as much to make the glitter dense and as sparkly you want it to be.
Step 4: Apply a clear top coat immediately to smooth out the glitter. Apply to the other nails as well to give it a more finished look. I also applied a little star on the corner of my glittered nail.
And that’s the final look. Pretty simple right? Give it a try and tell me how much you love it.

Products Used: Green Nail Polish – Golden Rose Rich Nail Lacquer in No. 18,  White Nail Polish – Flormar Pretty in P03, Top Coat – Golden Rose Paris clear top coat, Green Glitter Polish – Golden Rose Jolly Jewels in No. 107

Happy Independence Day!
