Don’t apologise for something too natural…

The other day, my friends were discussing , how irritating it is, when the menstrual blood stains the skirt or bedsheet…

Yeah it is irritating though…

Suddenly, my memory lanes started flooding with the thoughts of, how my mom used to scold me if I did not pay attention to the staining. Sooner, I started getting nervous whenever I felt that I had not changed the sanitary pad.

I hated fridays. Reason no. 1– Four lecture periods for Mathematics , Reason no. 2- No games period as the maths lecturer was the class teacher and used to organise test in games period and ultimately Reason no. 3 – On Friday, the dress code used to be white…

White canvas for a bloody red paint…

Now that I am grown up in a society where staining your dress or skirts determine how your upbringings are… what more can u expect me to say? In a society like this, your aunt will probably give your mother, a long lecture about how, your mother is not a responsible mother and that she did not teach her daughter that staining a skirt is a big crime…

If your skirt is stained, will you be accepted by your relatives or cousins?? Probably NO!!! May be they will tease you and scold you as well…

Just a question…

Why should you apologise for something that cannot be controlled?

Just being IRONIC, I know where society is leading us.

So, I am not ashamed of something that is completely natural. And I guess, those who think a woman should be sorry if she stains her skirt in public, should rinse their brains…

Don’t apologise for something too natural…

DIY Home-made Skin Care Products from GREEN TEA…

Thank God it’s Friday….

I am gonna share you a few secret recipe that you can try out on your skin. After all the work on weekdays, your skin needs that pampering for the miraculous rejuvenation.

Green Tea it is…

Green tea is far more different than the regular black tea. They are made from the same plant- Camellia Sinensis, but are processed differently. Black tea is fermented while the green tea is dried and steamed.

Can you imagine a world where people kept working day and night without TEA? Can you imagine your skin, exposed to pollutants without anything to nourish it?

Benefits of green tea:-

  • Hydrates and nourishes the skin.
  • Protects your skin from the pollutants.
  • Treats the puffy eyes and dark circles.
  • It is an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent.
  • Unclogs pores.
  • Tones skin.
  • Fights acne.
  • Has anti-aging effects.
  • Blocks the harmful sunrays.

Green tea is full of antioxidants that you cannot just ignore its healing effects on your skin. These antioxidants help in reducing the acnes and the inflammatory skin conditions.

Green tea has vitamin E and B2 that keeps your skin toned and supple. It also contains tannin and caffeine. The most important catechins in green tea is the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which protects the skin from the harmful sunrays. It’s antioxidant properties are due to the rich polyphenols in the green tea.
