Beauty is skin deep - Sir Thomas Overbury.
We all know that real beauty is inner beauty but proper grooming is essential to look presentable and
flaunt beauty products of one’s choice.
Beauty products are synonyms to woman or vice-versa.
The beauty industry thrives on the Diva’s of this world, so you can well understand the connection between women of this universe and the beauty products.
In my childhood & early teens, I was a careless beauty and wasn’t much fond of beauty products but with growing age, the lust for the products grew immense and a reasonable chunk was spent on these items. I started hoarding Face creams, Lipsticks, Nail Polish, Bangles & Bindi & Shampoo. I use the term hoarding because whenever I go for shopping, I buy again in spite of availability in my cupboard…it’s a weakness to shop.
From initial days, I used Tiara egg shampoo for shampooing my hair. I have silky hair and it needs great care and I have a habit of washing hair on daily basis. Tiara egg shampoo was withdrawn from the market and I switched to Sunsilk egg shampoo for long years. Sunsilk again withdrew egg shampoo and came up with Black Sunsilk and Yellow Sunsilk and these two became important items in my cupboard. As I shampoo daily, I use mild shampoos too in between and Sunsilk Pink comes to my rescue. After every six months, I change to Garnier Green Shampoo or Tressemme Black to give my crowning glory a change and then I return back to Sunsilk brand.
I use Lotus White glow Skin Gel cream in winters & LotusNutramoist cream in summers for my face & neck on daily basis and Lotusnight cream while sleeping.
In summers, often, I dab white tone powder while going out in daytime. I avoid too much creamy base face creams as I don’t feel comfortable dabbing them on my face.
Gel cream are best for me.
I hoard foundation, face powder and other BB creams which adorns my shelf more than me. The chance of using them are quite bleak, still they stand tall in my collections.
Recently, I have started Aloe Vera gel and the results are mind-blowing, it removes the scars and clears the skin. I dab on my face one hour before bathing.
Bindi adorns my face 24 hours. Since the day, I got engaged, I am wearing bindi on regular basis, even at night, and I don’t remove them.
It is an inseparable part of me. I use simple round bindi’s of different sizes in hues of red, maroon, brown & black and I have dozens of them in my beauty bag, daily purse and in my personal cupboard.
I am fond of glass bangles since childhood. In my childhood days, I never ever wore bangles but bought it each time the Churiwalli visited our house and they adorned my shelves. Even my grannies used to say that why I buy when I don’t wear. I wasn’t much interested in wearing but it satisfied me watching them the colourful stack and it gave me an unknown pleasure.
After marriage, I started wearing bangles. I don’t wear bangles of all hues. Some selected hues adorns my wrist; the all-time favorite hues are shades of red, maroon, pink, yellow, orange, golden and multicolored.
I prefer glass bangles more as I love the tinkling sound of them but I do wear bangles of lac and metals.
I avoid metals in regular wear because it causes skin irritation but do wear occasionally.
I have huge collection of bangles of all hues and of all types available in the market.
Lipstick & Nail Polish:
I love buying Lipsticks & nail polishes. I don’t wear lipstick daily but buy shades of red, pink, maroon and chocolate hues and I carry in my daily purse too. Whether I wear or not, that’s not a concern but it should be in my bag.
I wear them occasionally but buy dozens to satiate my hoarding habit.
I love shades of red, pink, chocolate nail polish and I use it for my toe nails. I don’t wear nail polish in my hands but my toe nails are always painted with some hue or the other.
I have got large collection of nail polishes.
These are my best five beauty products for which I am thankful and more or less, it is a part and parcel of daily regimen which takes care of my hair & skin and adorns my persona.
Apart from using beauty product, I take care to keep myself happy, clean & fresh.
Be happy and it will add radiance to your persona which no beauty product can enhance and the real beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.
