How I got fair !

Everyone wants to be fair,everyone wants to have white skin.And the moment you hit puberty,you start staring at yourself in the mirror.Are these pimples,are these blemishes,whiteheads and blackheads,too much hair on my arm and legs and what not !

But Im not going to write about weight its purely on pigmentation.

One day my husband came complaining home thats his pits had this smell.This usually happens when the temperature rises to 50'c and +.A friend suggested him this cream which if he applied on his pits,the smell would gradually wear off.I always read the instruction papers of every product without fail and it read that it could be applied on blemishes too.I thought what the hell and applied it on my face.

The first month,all the blackheads and blemishes cleared.I liked the clear skin look and I continued and then I discovered that by staying inside and avoiding direct sun I got fair with this cream.

So thats my story.hehehhheee.......

Its "Pohli cream".You have to do a patch test coz many of friends tried it and they had allergic reactions.

Having a damn sensitive skin has prevented me from trying facials or any other treatments.Yes,I have never done a facial in my life.But I do care for my skin the desi way.Thats gram flour,rose water,multani mitti,steaming my face every now and then at home and using a good scrub fortnightly.I avoid the sun coz 45'c..50'c..55'c and finally during the peak season 60'c is not the kind of sunlight and heat you want to enjoy.

But now I have found something new.Oil of olay day skin whitening cream.It evens your skin tone,so you dont have spots on your face or dark patches here and then.Am I obsessing over fairness...yes..right now I know I will be spending the next 3 months alone at home on my own as my husband is on emergency duty,I have nothing better to do then draw,cook,and try homemade facepacks to improve the quality of my skin.Im covered with black dots(beauty spots) and moles on my face.They are God given and I like them.

Im gonna embark on a new project soon.Gonna draw something and be all over it for a few days.I just taught science to my student.Habitat ,adaptation,water lettuce,pitcher plant and all.He looks at me with pure wonder when I explain things and the working of it.Its fun to teach someone isnt it ! All you mommies know it by now.When we were done with school stuff ,he went on to explain to me how he and his mom cleaned stomachs of sheep(OJRI).It has to prepped a certain way and then cooked.He's 8 yrs old and being the only child he is very much involved with his mom and dad.I was stunned coz I havent eaten it myself.

The only way I helped my mom out was eat what she made as she laid it down on the plate in the kitchen.The 3 of us had one favourite passtime and that was we licked our plate clean especially when our fav. dish was cooked and handed the plates to our mom.Sometimes she got a kick out of it and sometimes  she would call us naughty piglets.

From pigmentation to piglets...I dont have my thoughts in order at all,do I !

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

One of the many things that grow inside a uterus and cause problems for some while others barely know about it in their life are FIBROIDS.I was recently diagnosed with multiple fibroids and cysts when my usual monthly periods became a little too unbearable.We got an ultrasound done which led to many other gynecologists doing the same thing for confirmation.

My fibroids are small but I have been told that my periods will be stopped for a couple of months and regular ultrasounds will be done to ensure that no fibroids are growing out of proportions or are getting benign or malignant,which again is done through a biopsy.I just thought I will write about a  bit of my journey as I spend this time scared.

I told a couple of my friends and they all had scary stories to tell about how some relative didn't take care of themselves and were finally diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and died from it.I had my share of panic attack yesterday night and after a proper informative chat with my …
