My Skin Diary – August 2013

Gosh…its unbelievable how this year is just flying by! I hate it and love it at the same time. Anyways, my skin was not behaving very well this month. I don’t know why but I did get an issue of lot of small bumps on the skin and by small, I mean very very small. You can just see that the skin is not looking smooth.

You will ask me if I did anything for it. Well, honestly, I did nothing specifically. My best guess is that it was because I did not use sunscreen. But then, this month I have cut some serious slack with sunscreen and those boils did not come later on when I stopped using sunscreen again.

So, may be the answer just boils down to maintenance. I have not been looking after my skin very seriously. I do tend to take it a bit for granted because my skin is, touchwood, really good. Thanks to my genes and no credits to me. But, I would reiterate the fact that howsoever good your skin might be, do not ever forget taking care of it.


Day Routine
Night Routine
  • Cleansing Milk – Garnier + Mustard Oil
  • Face wash – Nivea Visage Refreshing Face Wash + Olay Total Face Cleanup
  • Toner – Liz Earle + Kama Ayurveda Vetiver Water
  • Moisturizer – Rustic Art aloevera gel
  • Facial Oil – Turmeric infused Almond Oil + Primrose Oil

So, I have to say here that the turmeric infused oil is working really well on reducing the breakout size for me. A few days back I had a bad case on my neck. I think I accidentally scratched my skin in sleep and it was an angry breakout whose size had reduced to half and 1/3rd the night and night after respectively on using the oil. So, yes, I would definitely encourage you to try it out.

My skin picking habit has left my neck tortured as I had mentioned earlier as well so I am STILL looking forward to reversing that damage and containing my habit. Do you have any advises?

      Hey Pranali. how you doing??? as mentioned below, there is a tablet called primosa. you can get them in any pharmacy. cut them open and collect the oil in glass bottles and you can use it for hair or skin. its a bit expensive though so take the 500mg tablets first. or, i think soulflower carried evening primrose oil.

    Evening primrose oil is available in the form of capsules also, i guess PRIMOSA or something like that. by the way turmeric infused almond oil is a lovely idea.
