Things you can do to glow on your D-day!

Our lives have become so busy with day to day chores that we have forgotten to take care of our skin. If you are going to be a bride, you need to pay extra attention to your skin. For the natural glow, other than parlour appointments, home care is a must. In order to do so, you can simply follow the tips given below.

  • Diet

For natural and long-lasting glow, diet is one of the biggest factors. Inclusion of few things in your diet can do the job.

  • Watermelon

It consists of 93% water and loads of vitamins. It also has antioxidants, which prevent aging of the skin. Watermelon hydrates the skin and gives a youthful glow. Daily intake of watermelon will repair the damaged skin, replenish it and protects it from further damage.

  • Tomatoes

The idea is to incorporate antioxidants in your body. Lycopene in tomatoes gives skin its taut and youthful structure. Antioxidants repair the damaged skin and give radiance to it.

  • Carrot or carrot juice

Vitamin C and antioxidant in carrot makes the skin look healthy and vibrant. Daily consumption of carrot will give a long-lasting glow to your skin.   Other vegetables such as cucumber, beetroot etc. should also be added to your daily diet. Daily intake of water should not be less than 2-3 litres. I don’t think I need to remind you the benefits of water.

  • Sleep

“poor sleep can lead to increased stress hormones in the body that increases the severity of inflammatory skin conditions such as acne or psoriasis” explains Jessica Krant, dermatologist. You need to take 7-8 hours of sleep daily. Not enough sleep leads to stress, it worsens existing skin condition. Not taking enough sleep also leads to weight gain. So beautiful, go ahead take your beauty sleep.

  • Exfoliate

Regularly exfoliate your skin. It will give you the texture that you need for your skin.

  • Essential supplement

In addition to food, you also need to take essential supplements such as good multi-vitamin, omega-3 capsules. These supplements not only improve our skin but also your hair and eyes as well.

  • Moisturise your skin

Daily use of moisturizer will help you get rid of dry skin. Apply moisturizer especially in a dry area such as elbow, foot, knees and wherever your skin is dry.

  • Facial

Deep cleansing facial once in a month will help you get rid of dead skin, acne and this will prepare your skin for your D-day.

  • Turmeric face packs

There is a reason why we have haldi function in our Indian weddings. Turmeric reduces scars, heal wounds, it contains anti-inflammatory abilities that helps skin to get better. Prepare turmeric face mask at home, use that twice a week for two months before your D-day.  

P.S- you need to start following these things 3-4 months before your wedding day. So get going with these tips to make that special one go WOW on you!!!

Traditions which are holding India back

Incredible India, that’s right “impossible to believe” India. You can take that in a good way or otherwise. “Incredible” works for both the aspects of India. There are so many demonic beliefs that it’s impossible even for us to follow those traditions. Here is my aspect of “Incredible India”:

Triple talak

This is the weirdest of all Muslim traditions. Do you have any idea how does it work? Let me help you. If husband or wife, any of them says “talaq talaq talaq” that’s right three times, the couple is considered divorced. Come on, are you kidding me? Just by saying this single word three times, the whole marriage ends. May be the person was just angry and he/she didn’t mean that. We all do stupid things when we are angry. But there is no going back from this. Anger or no anger if this word is said three times, this is the end of the so-called eternal bond.

 Polygamy

Well this is also from Muslim community but even other communities are not sitting behind, they have also started to follow this. And let me tell you, this is allowed for men only. He has all the right to marry as many times as he wants. And what happens when a woman does that? She is labeled as a woman with no character, to put it harshly…a slut!

Burka / ghunghat

“Cover your face, don’t you have manners” I am sure you have heard that thousands of time. On the other side of the world, girls wear what they are comfortable in. Here in India, girls are supposed to hide their faces, as if it’s a crime to have a girly face.

Pari pona 

Touching feet’s of our elders is fine. I get it, it’s our way of taking their blessings. But touching your better half’s feet, are you serious? He is your BETTER HALF, not superior. And if women are expected to do that then why not men do the same.

Dowry

A girl’s happy married life in India doesn’t start by getting married. It starts with the dowry, and even that is not guaranteed. Giving their girl to someone else isn’t enough, with that parent have to pay a hefty amount of money and expensive gifts like furniture, car and what not!

Gender discrimination

In every aspect of life, there is gender discrimination in India. From taking birth to taking the last breath, a girl is discriminated in every phase of her life. Most of the girls get murdered even before coming to the world. And the ones who do come into the world, they are considered as birth-giving machine and nothing more than that. And it happens in spite of the fact that girls are considered as the form of goddess.

Child marriage

Incredible India. This can happen only in India. When kids don’t even know the meaning of marriage, those little kids are made to marry. In other countries, kids are learning to write and read. At the same age, kids in India are made to tie the knot. Though it’s an old age tradition but is still practiced in some parts of our Incredible India.

Inter cast/ inter-religion marriage

Loving someone is not easy in India. To love someone and to get married to them you have to “choose” the person from same religion and caste. As they say, love knows no boundaries, well that doesn’t apply to our country. Love must be limited within the community, given that the girl and the boy are considered suitable for each other by match-making through kundli.

White bedsheets on wedding night

This is the worst of all traditions. When nothing else was left, we came up with the “white bedsheets on wedding night” trend. We all know what is that for. To check the virginity of the bride. No matter if the girl had some accident or she was into sports. She has to bleed on the very first night of her wedding. And if she doesn’t, well the groom regrets marrying a whore.

It’s important to have a different culture. But some traditions are holding us back from developing. Such as inequality, polygamy and all the above, there are a lot many such traditions. And we all know as soon as we get rid of these demonic traditions we will not be counted in ‘developing countries’ we will come under ‘developed countries’.

Why you should do a Pre-Wedding Shoot

Pre-wedding shoot or engagement shoot, as few call it, is quite on trend these days. Pre-wedding shoots have become as important as varmala ceremony in our Indian weddings.

Call it show off or thing for money bags but every couple wants to be captured in that dreamy photo shoot.  And why shouldn’t they be! 😉   So, here we are going to tell you why pre-wedding shoot is a necessity.

First and foremost, pre-wedding photo shoot lets you connect to your photographer. So, when he comes with a camera on your wedding day, he is not a stranger to you. Instead, he is friendly-face who knows which is the best angle to capture your seraphic beauty.

Engagement shoot also lets you connect with your better half. Engagement shoot lets you live (for a while may be! :D) and capture those fairy tale moments which you had dreamt about when you first saw those Karan Johar’s movies. In those shoots, you get to become king and queen or in some cases Raj and Simran from DDLJ. And as the wedding stress starts to take over you, you will have some fun-filled moments with your would-be spouse.

 

Pre-wedding shoots give you pictures to hang on your walls. So, when you are all wrinkled you can go and revisit that beautiful phase of your life with your partner over a cup of espresso.

Pre-wedding shoot eliminates the camera nerves. Most of us are camera friendly nowadays. But when it comes to professional photography, we do need the guidance. Pre-wedding shoot covers that up. So, when you are on the stage with your helpmate in a beautiful bridal dress, you rock the photographs like a pro.

And bonus, you have the picture for your SAVE THE DATE card.

Make most of this Valentine’s day!

Did you know the origin of valentine day is dark, bloody and a bit muddled? Yes, that’s right. From 13-15 February the Romans would celebrate the feast of Lupercalia. According to Noel Lenski, in this feast there would be matchmaking lottery, young men drew the name of women from a jar. They would be coupled up for the duration of the festival or longer.

Emperor Claudius II executed two men, both named Valentine on February 14, of different years. They were honored by the Catholic church with the celebration of St.Valentine’s day. Pope Glasius I muddled things by combining St. Valentine’s day with Lupercalia feast to expel the pagan ritual. As the years went on, the day grew sweeter. Shakespeare romanticized it in his work. And now we celebrate is as love day. Let me remind you this day can be celebrated with anyone you love, be it your father, mother or anyone from your family. Now the question arises how to make most of this beautiful day? Let us help you with that.

Celebrate With family

How about celebrating this day with your first love? For this, you don’t even need to put a lot of efforts. A simple lunch or dinner date with mommy and daddy in a restaurant will be enough to show how much you love them. They don’t expect much from us on this day, a rose will also put a smile on their faces for the whole day. You can also get something for mommy. Or you can just take over household work for a day, after all even she needs a day off. Which other day would be better than this?

Celebrate with your better half

make most of the romantic day of the year, valentine’s day!

Who doesn’t love surprises? Especially on valentine’s day? I would die for the person who is going to surprise me with all the decoration in the room, and the whole day planned in advance. I am sure your better half would love that too. Let us help you with the ideas.

  • Decorate the room

Or the whole house if you are the only couple living in the house. Decorate it with heart-shaped balloons. If you don’t want it that cheesy go for the combination of golden and black balloons. Do it in his/her absence. Better when he/she is asleep. Who doesn’t want to wake up in their dream world?

  • Breakfast on bed

Serve his/her favourite breakfast on bed. But before that give him/her that beautiful rose you have been hiding all this while.

  • Basket of gifts

Gifts are the best thing to show your love. Especially when the gifts have been thoughtfully selected. Don’t just give anything you feel like. Give what they need the most, or maybe something they really wanted to buy for themselves. or may be something kinky 😉

  • Go ice skating

Movies and malls are too mainstream. Choose something different. For example ice skating. Personally, I feel this is an adventurous, fun-filled and most romantic sport. Laughing and helping each other when other person falls, oh! So romantic.

  • DIY gifts, together

Play a game of DIY gifts. All you have to do is make gifts for each other in a limited time period. Whoever does first will win. And other person will have to cook dinner 😉

  • Be tourist in your own town

 

This is Fun! Really!!! Explore your own town together. Be a tourist couple. Take as many pictures as you can. Eat on streets. Rent a cycle and be a stranger to your own town. Just enjoy with your other half.

  • Fuggedaboutit

Let me make it easy, “forget about it”. Keep your daily routine, no one is going to judge you. I know many couples who avoid all valentine’s day hoopla. As they say, if you have love any day can be valentine’s day.

Pamper Yourself

Well, let’s say this one is for single people. And also for people staying away from home. Come on, this day is for everyone. You also have all the right to celebrate it. Take a day off, go to your favorite restaurant and order your favorite dish. Go shopping, buy that dress on which you have been drooling over since ages. And at night, go clubbing with your other single friends. Because we know all the committed friends would be busy with their loved ones.

Make your long distance lover feel loved

Oh! How much you want to cross all the oceans to be with the one person you love. Being in the present situation, that’s not possible. But nothing is stopping your love to reach him/her. The Internet has made everything just clicks away. Order his/her favorite cake, with few other romantic gifts e.g. the dress she wanted to buy for a long time or gym kit he has been delaying to buy. Make sure you have same cake with you, celebrate your love through a screen, together.

Propose him/her again!

Go on your knees, take that velvet box out, and pop the most awaited question. Will you marry me? Oh, wait! What did you think I’ll ask you to propose him/her to be your girlfriend/ boyfriend. Isn’t he/she already? Have the courage to do what you have been waiting to do. That’s exactly what you really wanted since starting.

Cook for her

This I think will be the best surprise you can give her. If you are living in a relationship or married you almost forget, she needs to be reminded that you love her. Valentine’s day is especially for people who keep forgetting this. And what else is better than cooking for her? “pati k pyar ka rasta pet se hokr guzarta hai” this has turned out to be true and vice- versa also.

 

Let me remind you, you don’t have to keep this list for valentine’s day. You don’t need a specific day to show your love. Show your love to your loved ones whenever you feel like.

How to spice up your wedding night?

Wedding night 😍 the sound of it only invokes me with excitement and blush, I am sure it does the same for you too. Come on, we all have dreamt about it, not only while sleeping but also wide awake. Would be groom and would be bride wants their wedding night to be as perfect as possible. This is the night which they will remember for the rest of their lives. While the bride wants it look like totally out of Yash Raj’s films, the groom’s dreams are the mixture of Katrina kaif and Sunny Leone. You will agree with me if I say “wedding night is the magical night”. You are religiously, legally and respectably allowed to be together in the same room and no one can object to that, so of course, it’s your right to make it more special and memorable. We have some ideas which will make your wedding night more memorable.

1-    Music

First thing first, How can this night be complete without music. Play some soft music in background. Then think of something else.

2-    Decorate the room

The wedding venue was decorated so why not your room too. Start your beautiful life in a Beautiful room.

3-    Don’t keep fantasizing it.

If you keep fantasizing and reality doesn’t turn out to be as you expected it to be, it will leave a mark on your memories. So keep your fantasies real.

4-    Open gifts together   

Well to Break the ice you can open the gifts which your guests gave you. This way you will start to feel comfortable around each other. And you will have so much to talk about the gifts. Just a way to be comfortable with each other.

5-    Champagne!

This one is for ‘not so typical bride’. Share a cigarette or a glass of champagne. People start to talk on a glass of champagne. But for this, you need to know other person is comfortable with this or not. But this doesn’t mean you have to get drunk, just a glass will be fine.

6-   A Surprise Gift!

Give each other gifts. Something special. Just a reminder of this beautiful night. This will surely get your spouse going. According to a research, surprises play immense role in a marriage. Be creative, gift him/her something that was never expected.

Let him do that for you 😉. After all, it was him that you had put so many efforts for.

8-    Don’t jump for sex

It’s your first night, break the ice first. For that, you can talk to each other or simply complement each other. Jumping straight to action doesn’t leave anything to remember. You have rest of your life to do that. But this night is special. Some people don’t even prefer physical intimacy at first night and it’s normal.

9-    Cuddle 

As mentioned already, don’t jump to action. Take the cuddle route.

Top 10 skin care tips for Groom

Top 10 skin care tips for Groom

Wedding is an important ritual and tradition in Hindu mythology. It is an event which is celebrated with pomp and show. The limelight of this tradition is the Bride and Bridegroom. Therefore, they both have to look their best.

So, there are 10 skin care tips for groom to be followed in order to have a healthy skin on the day of wedding.

 

1. Drink a lot of water

The first step to keep the skin healthy is to drink a lot of water. Dehydration is the enemy of a healthy skin. The more you keep your body hydrated, the more radiant the skin becomes. Water removes toxic compounds from the body thereby, cleansing it. Moreover, water aids in digestion, circulation and excretion thus supporting a healthy lifestyle. It is an alternative for the anti-ageing components. As the water evaporates from the surface of the skin, it becomes cooler and thereby eliminating the extra oil and redness (if any).

 

2. Identify your skin type.

Apart from drinking water, you should identify your skin type. There are various types of skin. You should determine the skin type. Is it too oily? Is it prone to acne? Is it rough and dry? Is it normal? Is it a combination of both? By observing the behaviour of your skin when you wake up and sleep, you can easily answer this question. Once you have determined your skin type, then, you can work on your skin according to that because every skin type requires a different set of skin care techniques.

 

3. Exercise frequently, sweat more

Skin is made up of delicate skin tissues. Running, exercising and sweating more will help the skin to rebuild and thus, it will remove dead cells from the skin making it more radiant and glowing. Exercise helps in proper breathing and the supply of adequate oxygen to every part of the body including skin.

 

4. Daily Cleansing

Cleansing of skin is as important as any other thing. Opt for an ayurvedic, an allopathic or a homemade cleanser and use it two times a day and just after sweating a lot. Warm water with rose water is the best homemade cleanser. Moreover, there are many cleansing products available at the cosmetic shop. Buy them after identifying your skin type. Cleansing will help in removing dead cells from the skin and the formation of rejuvenated radiant skin cells.

 

5. Have a Proper Sleep

Sleeping actually determines the health of your skin. You may have noticed excess oil on the surface of your skin when you wake up after sleep. This indicates you have an oily skin and an oily skin is prone to acne. Moreover, sleep helps to repair the dead skin cells and a proper sleep will aid you to prevent the dark circles and dark spots too. 8 hour proper sleep will add to the radiance of the skin.

 

6. Adopt healthy eating habits.

You may have heard of the saying “Eat healthy, stay healthy”. The lifestyle of a person is dependent on the diet she/he intakes to about 70%. If your diet contains more amount of unsaturated fats i.e. your diet contains a lot of junk food, the health of your body will deteriorate. Skin usually shows the result of a bad diet in the form of redness or pimples. A balanced diet consisting of adequate amounts of nutrients helps the skin to look more glowing and thus improves the health of the skin. A balanced diet can be listed by a physician based on the skin type of a person.

 

7. Protect your skin from any external damage

Making your skin healthy internally is helpful but side by side, you have to take care of the things which make your skin look dull. Whenever you step out in the sun, use sunscreen lotions ( SPF depending on the extent of sunlight) and cover your face with a mask or scarf ,else it will add up dead cells and cause tanning.
