My skin is very dull and tanned and dry. Can you please suggest the best cream which I would like to apply to my total body.
I have to first say my heartiest thanks to the brand and the PR people for bearing with me for so long for blue nectar briganantadi review. It has almost been six months since I received their products for review but could not review the hair oil due to the extreme hair fall I had been facing for the past few months.
The other product I reviewed was their headache relief roll on which is amazing. And, I have all good things to say about this product as well. Before starting, I would confess that the delay in reviewing blue nectar briganantadi was due to my bad health and weakness. My hair was in a very very bad shape couple of months back and it has been getting back to normal only since December. So, now, I can review hair products again.

We can officially declare Apollo as our family hospital. For the starters, it is so nearby and easily accessible. It has become a custom for us to visit the hospital once a month at least for some or the other small reason, thankfully nothing serious. It just so happens that Mr. P has the destiny of Mr. Bean. Something or other keeps on happening in his life and I always get embroiled in it. Anyways, I wanted to talk about a very rare disease today called Scleroderma.
Actually, it is an autoimmune condition which comes under rheumatology but it starts from skin. It happened with one of my cousins so dermatologist in Chennai was able to diagnose this condition. You can also take help from internal medicine experts or general physician who will direct you to the concerned departments.
What happens in Scleroderma?
Skin starts becoming tight and shiny
It can be a localized issue or can spread to different parts of the body. If it is localized, you are safe enough but if it is spreading, you might be in trouble. What happens is that there is an overproduction of collagen which makes the skin super glowing but hard.
Did you know they use the freshly squeezed coconut milk for the coconut milk massage at Serena Spa? Already sounds heavenly, right! Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised to know this fun fact. Let me share my experience with the serena spa coconut milk body massage.

What I think about the Serena Spa Coconut Milk Body Massage?
I think the spa decor is incomplete without a serenely sitting Buddha and a lot of rose petals. They are found in every single spa I have been to and I love it. The dim lights, the soothing music and the heavenly fragrance goes a long way to relax the senses. I was provided with a welcoming cup of hot and steaming green tea. The tea set itself was fabulous.
When I started on this post, I realized that it has been a year exactly since I have done any of the hair or skin diary posts. That officially proves that I have done nothing for my skin or hair in 2016. So, I guess it is a good start to this year with a skin diary post. I have been more or less pretty diligent for the last two months in my skin care and there are a lot of insights to share. So, let me begin.
Sunscreen helps with Blemishes
If you have been a regular reader on the blog for the past few months, you would know that my skin faced a major bad phase last quarter. After that I have been pretty diligent with sunscreen and I have noticed that there is a remarkable reduction in tanning and blemishes on my skin. So, you want to get rid of blemishes or dark spots, sunscreen is the way to go! And, give it time. It might take a month or more to show results depending on your skin type and damage levels.
Also, another tip – combine your sunscreen with a vitamin C serum and your skin is on your way to health.
Importance of Cleansing
Wish you all a very Happy Pongal and hope you had a great Lohri and Bogi.
Fun Fact: If you don’t know, Pongal is also the name of a dish which is prepared today. It is prepared with rice and is generally bland and not spicy. The funny thing is that I used to hate this dish till a two to three years back and now, I am not definitely in love with it but it tastes really good if I put a whole lot of pure ghee. So, if you have not had this dish, you should definitely try it out.
The vichy aqualia thermal dynamic hydration serum was one of the most disappointing products for me I used in the last year. Did it stay so? Let us check out.
