The New Year Resolution For Every Indian

Happy New Year Everyone ! In true Indian fashion, our new year wishes come to you 6 days into the new year, taking into consideration the Indian Standard Time and the time taken to recover from that wretched hangover.

You might also wonder why we have decided to speak about resolutions when it is something most people  work on during the tail end of the year. The typical human spends the year collecting more and more mistakes and is so guilty about it that he craves absolution rather than set realistic resolutions.

The smoker decides to go cold turkey. The resident alcoholic swears off alcohol. Most people set themselves ridiculous targets, usually where weight loss is concerned.

Regardless of our occupations and social status, almost everyone of us would have an image related resolution. We decided to engage our resident beauty expert, the beautiful Maheswari on a much needed resolution for every Indian :).

It is ironic that our largest organ in our system is perhaps not even treated as a part of our body. Most of us take it for granted. Infact, the sad truth is that some of us probably do not treat our skin with any respect. Most of us treat like a canvass, that can be washed off. The parts that are usually visible to the people ( face / hands / nails ) receive more attention that other. Mahes regretfully accepts that most Indian women are more likely to spend on make up products rather than skin care products. This is obviously something that does not make sense at all. Imagine a painter who buys all the paint in the world and has only 1 canvass. Yes, he can paint on an 'already painted on canvass' . Now imagine that canvass to be your moonji (face).  While you process that thought, lets move on to read more on Mahes's pearls of wisdom.

Panda Eyes
The skin around our eyes are so delicate and even having a habitual gesture of rubbing our eyes frequently can cause this pigmentation under their eyes.However, this can be improved by using retinol creams or under eye creams on a daily basis. It is easy to get ourselves a set of panda eyes and we should take more effort in alleviating them. You must take note that dark circles are likely to become more noticeable and permanent with age. You need to know that panda eyes are cute, but only on Pandas.

Suffice to say, what you eat will eventually reflect who you become. As we move into the ‘Keep Fit’ era, we must not forget that the diet we adopt on a daily basis will be reflected by the skin we have. So what you need to do is to eat your way to get a fabulous skin! How?

"Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods are that you consume, the better your skin will look," says Samantha Heller, MS, RD, a clinical nutritionist at NYU Medical Center in New York City.
Step one is for you to cut down on your fried food. Step two , incorporate more vegetables and fruits into your diet and thirdly have more water and lesser sweetened drinks and sodas. By drinking plenty of water , you can cleanse your organs and flush out your toxins. Eventually you can see your pimples disappearing and your skin will appear to be more radiant and glowing!

The Routine - The Habit - The Mojo
First you need to develop an appropriate skincare routine and then you need to stick by it. Make it into a habit for you to always remove your makeup before you sleep. No matter what, cleansing your face before bed time always gives your skin ample to replenish all the moisture it had lost throughout the day. Also make sure you exfoliate frequently and hydrate your skin well. This will help to eliminate any future skincare problems you may face.

Developing a habit is not difficult. The most probable obstacle to this routine would be the intoxicated state you may be in after a heavy night of drinking. The last thing you would want to do is to spend the next 10 minutes on a boring routine. What you need to do is to sexcite your routine. Customise it with a peppy song and some funky dance moves. Before you know it, you will be addicted to this part of your day.


The Best Investment in 2015
The Indian community is ripe with so many investment options.  From buying gold bars to villas in India to Sri Lankan crabs ,the number of investment opportunities targeted at the Indian community never seem to decrease. Whether or not your money grows, we cannot say for sure.
What we can say is that,  investing your time and some dollars into your skin will never go to waste. It can’t become a medical miracle over a night. You need to prepare your skin to adjust to the chemicals and react accordingly to it after almost 1 week. Before you look for quick and fast results, identify what are your skin problems are.

Spend some time to understand your skin and do some research on what are the products you can try and invest. Of course, there are many varieties of the shelves but we need to know what the differences are before we plunge into one product.

To come to a conclusion, it is essentially very important to know yourself well, meaning you need to know what your skin type is and what are your problem areas. Firstly, you need to consider your skin type. Second, the type of skin care products that your skin needs. Thirdly, essential make-up tips for your day to day make-up.
