Bobby pins

Bobby pins have been around for a very long time now and many of us use them to get a French Bun or Top Knot. We often complain that they do not stay in one place and do not hold on the hairstyles. It may be because you have been using them wrong. Your hair falls out of the bun or knot not because you are skilled enough (although that may be the contributing factor, honey!) but because o the ineffective use of bobby pins. The squiggly arms of the pins should be parallel or touching the scalp, not the flat part.

For extra hold, spritz some hairspray on the pins and then secure your hairstyle with bobby pins.

Eye Creams Or Serums

The skin around your eyes is very sensitive and need utmost care and attention. We go to extreme lengths to take care this skin by using big sunglasses to protect it from UV radiation. Eye creams are your best friends when comes to protect and repair damage to the delicate under eye skin. A proper technique is needed to apply eye creams without damaging your delicate skin. Some people tend to simply rub the cream aggressively on the skin without any consideration for the skin.

The proper way to apply an eye cream to the delicate under eye skin is given below:

  • First of all, take a small amount of the cream or serum on your ring finger.
  • Rub it against your thumb to warm it up a little bit.
  • Then gently dab it on.

The reason we use ring finger is because it exerts least amount of pressure. Now you know why your eye product is not giving you desired result.

Wait, you don’t use SPF?? Umm.. You should start using one. Sunblocks with high SPF content can prevent fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots and skin cancer. Incorporate this basic anti-aging product in your daily skincare routine.

And for those who use it regularly, check whether your method is correct or not.

  • One must apply sunscreen daily. By daily we mean DAILY, whether you see the sun or not.
  • Reapply after few hours.



Exfoliating has various benefits. They slough off the dead skin cells, let your skin breath, make the absorption of creams ad serum easy and help fade away dark spots.

Many of you make the mistake of using this 2-3 times in a week. This causes the skin to dry and slowly acne breaks out. Your skin secretes oil to keep it moisturized. Due over exfoliation, your skin becomes dry and the skin pores excrete extra oil. This causes an acne breakout.


Dry Shampoo

Everyone knows how to use a dry shampoo but very easily forgets the quantity in which it has to be used. Your scalp may turn out to be white if not used in proportions. Here are few precautions you need to take if you want to keep dandruff away.

  • Make sure you spray dry shampoo from a distance.
  • Work in sections.
  • Spray it along the roots.
  • Less is more; spray little by little till you get desired results.
