Pimple Mapping : Why We Break Out in Certain Areas and Tips to Avoid Pimples

Pimples Arggg uninvited guests..!! 😏

We all go through this annoying skin issue of dealing with pimples some or the other time. Some face severe ones and some are just do din k mehman (guests for couple of days).

While some pimples are caused due to hormonal changes, some are caused due to lack of hygiene. Some are caused due to stress and some are indications of health issues. So if home remedies doesn’t work, I would suggest to consult a good dermatologist.!

You might have heard that ‘prevention is better than cure’. How about finding the exact root cause of pimples we get and address them, in order to avoid pimples??

In this post I am going to list out major causes of pimples, based on the facial area where we get them. Let’s call this pimple map. 😜

Brow Line:

  • Access/ left over brow products.
  • Waxing eyebrows
  • Hormonal especially during puberty

Forehead:

  • Hair products
  • Digestive system issues
  • Dehydration
  • Over consumption of processed food
  • Anxiety
  • Poor sleep

In between brows:

  • It’s the T zone area, where oil secretion is more. This in tern might cause breakouts.
  • Hormonal
  • Gallbladder issues
  • Dehydration

Temples:

  • Clogged pores
  • Blackheads and whiteheads

Cheeks:

  • Dirty cellphones
  • Dirty pillowcases
  • Dirty makeup applicators
  • Smoking
  • Bronchitis issues

untitled

Undereye:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Less water intake
  • Rubbing your eyes with dirty hands
  • Left over makeup products

Nose:

  • Poor circulation
  • Indigestion
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart related issues
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Unhygienic makeup applicators
  • Eating spicy food

Jawline:

  • Lack of certain vitamins
  • Overeating
  • Liver related issues
  • More sugar intake
  • Excess dairy and caffeine intake

Chin:

  • Indigestion issues
  • Excess alcohol intake
  • Caffeine intake
  • Dehydration

Neck:

  • Liver related issues
  • High progesterone levels
  • Can also be caused by using dirty pillows

 

Now that you know the causes let me give you bunch of tips to avoid them. (You might have already figured this out but as a beauty blogger it’s my duty to consolidate and list the tip. know? ) 🤓

Hygiene: 

This is very important.

  • Clean your cellphones as they contain a lot of germs. When dirty screen comes in contact with skin, it causes breakouts.
  • Change pillow cases regularly. Transferred facial products, drool make them dirty and help germs grow. I know it sounds gross. So we need to change the cases regularly.
  • If you use applicator like makeup sponges, brushes make sure you clean them regularly and dry them properly. You don’t want to apply germs to your faces. Do you? 😁😁

Water:

If you browse through skin care videos online, everyone repeats the same thing that you need to drink a lot of water. Drinking water not keeps you hydrated, but also helps in flushing out toxins.

dd

Junk Food:

I can’t say to sacrifice junk food completely. Because I am a junk food addict. But everything should be in moderation.
No bad habits please:🤫

Smoking kills. I know it sounds like a typical ad. But it’s the fact. It kills you and kills your skin. So please stop polluting air and your own self. pretty please..!!

Alcohol. This causes dehydration. Dehydration causes a lot of skin issues in return.

Go vegan:

By avoiding dairy products not just your skin will be thankful but also the innocent cow and her calf too.🐮

cc

Stress:

Breath, breath and breath till the time you flush out stress through your nostrils. Stress is the root cause for n number of health issues. Like, seriously.

Products allergies:

I have seen girls trying products blindly. (Include me also in the list of ‘girls’). But not all product works for all types of skin. If you find the product breaking your skin, stop using it immediately. No matter how expensive the product is.

Hormonal:

This is where you need to consult a good dermatologist, to get good guidance to cure this skin issue.

Hope this helps you to shoo away those little enemies..!!🙅🏻‍♀️

Simple Steps to Follow This Year, for Better Health and Beauty

Hellooo 2018,

Be awesome to everyone…!!!

Well, my pretty reader – since we are in a very new year, we all are energised, happy and hopeful for something good this year. Let’s take some steps to achieve the best of ourselves. Sounds good??? Cool. Lets do this.

I have a post for you today which will list down all the small yet good steps which we need to take in order to get the awesome results. You know you are not too old to dream a new dream and to set a new goal for yourself. right???  Try to include these steps  everyday. Come on, theses are very simple. You can do it. Or, let me rephrase it as – ‘We’  can do it.

Shall we start???

Health comes first. Lets start with easy breezy steps to improve health.

Physical Health Tips:

thU1040FYR

  • Drink more water.( Don’t yawn plz. I know you have been reading this a lot. Its time to practice it)
  • Eat healthy. (Stop yawning)
  • Instead of asking you to eliminate junk food from your diet, let me put it this way. Lets challenge ourselves not to eat junk food for 2 days, then eventually increase that to a week, a month. I  myself a huge junk food addict. I have made my mind to train it by accepting such challenges. Hello, if I win??? I am gonna treat myself with some junk food. haha that is how we treat an addict.
  • Start your day with a glass of warm water and honey.
  • Are you a chocolate lover like me??? I am replacing my chocolates with dark chocolates. Because dark chocolates with more than 70% cocoa have more antioxidants. Are you with me in this ‘mission dark chocolate’???
  • Exercise. I am not asking you to pay for gym membership. We can do it right from where we are sitting. Just stretching, some leg exercises while you are seated on your chair, instead of taking elevator take stairs. I personally prefer stairs not only because its an easy workout, but its less crowded, peaceful and you get to breath some fresh air unlike in an elevator(you know what I mean).
  • Chew your food. Haha it sounds like a strict mommy’s dialogue. But jokes apart gal, we need to chew our food properly in order to ease the digestion process and to get more benefits from the food.
  • Brush your teeth twice daily. Oral health is very important. We tend to neglect that which results in bad breath and poor teeth condition. When all is good, we don’t get it. But when you suffer from teeth ache, then you realise all the bad things you did to your teeth. #karma haha
  • While Brushing, you can do some squats to utilize that time. Time saving huun??

Mental Health:

If you agree or not, most of us are hesitant and ignorant about mental happiness. Let’s not make that mistake this year. Because everything starts and ends at your mental health. If you are mentally fit, it will reflect in your physical health.

  • Make some time for yourself. Spend it on doing what you like. Be it self care, any hobby, cooking any thing.
  • Take a walk outside. Observe the world around you. When you are feeling low, even a small ant can be inspiring enough to lift you up. Ant falls while carrying a food particle which is much more bigger than it’s own size. But ant never gives up.
  • Spend time with old citizens, kids or pets. They help you forget all the stress.
  • Compliment or help some unknown people. Try it. You will know that kind of happiness.
  • Dance to your favorite music. You don’t have to be a professional dancer to enjoy the music. Just move your body to the beats(or off beats) the point is to enjoy it.
  • Sing. You are not participating in any music competition. There are no judges. Even if the people around you is trying to judge you, just ask them one question – what is the winning amount ??? #wink
  • Stressed??? I have a quick solution – Breath…!!!
  • Plan a vacation with loved ones. Be it a little one or big plan. Do it.
  • As they say there is always good in a bad day. Write down things you are thankful for at the end of the day.
  • Reduce the time you spend in the virtual world of social media.
  • Importantly – Smilllleeeee…..!!!!

Beauty Resolutions:

facial-86487979

  • Take care of your skin.
  • Irrespective of weather, do not skip sunscreen.
  • Never go to bed with your makeup on. Plz.
  • I know we love our girl-friends. But plz stop sharing your makeup with them. You are not doing any good to yourself or to them. Sharing used makeup can harm your skin more.
  • Do not compromise on the products you use for your skin.
  • Maintain good hygiene to maintain good skin.
  • Clean your phone screen. It has maximum number of bacteria which can harm your skin.
  • Good sleep is a must.
  • You deserve a spa session at least once a month. You don’t have to make a hole in pocket by booking an appointment in a well known spa. You just make use of the ‘search’ box at the end of this page and get to know how to do facial, bath salts for that long relaxing bath, hair spa etc. at home…!!!
  • Most important tip – love yourself. You are an original creation. Do not try to imitate and be a copy.

So, these are some of the things lets try to implement in our daily routine.

PS: I have bought and customised a planner for 2018. Where I am goon keep track of the good and bad things I have been doing with my health and beauty.. You can try this method too to improve yourself easily.

 

 

 

 

 

  What are Your Intentions for 2018???

My pretty reader,

Few hours left to say bye to 2017 and say hi to 2018. You must be ready with all celebration plans as well as the resolutions. As per the ‘new year rituals’…!

So, what are your intentions for 2018??? I am saying intensions because, lets be frank, resolutions never happen. Do they??? At least mine, never.

Hence this year – I am not making any resolutions for ‘new year’ sake. I can’t keep up my resolutions for more than first two days of January. Never happen. If you are good at keeping your resolutions intact till last month of the year, here – claps from me. 👏

As a new year is gonna start, I wanna take this opportunity to start it with a smile. (I can’t say a new hope – 1st is Monday. For a working IT gal, no matter which date it is Monday is hopeless. )

Here are some of my intentions with which I am gonna welcome my new year.

2018 Is going to be My Year

Yes. I have wasted my time, energy and tears on some of the people and thoughts who were not at all worth of those precious things. I’m pretty sure most of us did that too…!!! Hence, I am keeping myself and my nearest ones who never left my side when I was in need, in my priority list. Rest – bye bye. You might call me selfish but I don’t care. At the end of the day however I will be judged. By prioritizing in my way, at least I will be happy at the end of the day. What’s say??? 😉

A big hug to life and its lessons

2017 Has been a wonderful year. It gave me love and pain. I am glad it gave me love more than any year. I got a pet for myself. I started prioritizing things. I grew more mentally. I learnt to accept the things and grew with it. Hence, hoping to be more positive when it comes to life lessons. Instead of looking at pain, I am gonna look at the lessons I am learning.😎

Travel

Travelling makes you meet your true self. That leisure from daily race is necessary for your soul. Hence I will travel at least 2-3 places I have never seen before.😊

Be silly, be crazy, be who you are

We live only once gal. We can’t spend our lives impressing others. Instead, live a life which is impressive enough for you when you are on death bed. As I said, people will talk and judge about you. Ahhh poor people. Let’s give them some stuff to talk about by being just happy. 😀

Healthy lifestyle

Phewww this has been a common resolution for past many years. This year for change, it’s just my intention. I’m a huge junk food Addict. I just can’t end my day without an unhealthy diet. #Sinful I know. But this year let’s see how I am gonna workout this ‘intention’ of mine. 💆

Never compromise ‘me time’

I know a year can change a lot many things. But, no matter what, I’m not gonna stop pampering myself. No compromise with ‘me time’ 👸

Be more good to animals

Most of the times I have forgotten to keep some food in my vehicle so that I can feed a stray animal whenever I find one. I have met some stray dogs recently and I didn’t had anything to feed them. No proper food shop near by to buy anything. I have been guilty. I’m never gonna do that again in 2018. Plus, I will donate some money to some known charity, who work for animals. Trust me, world needs kind hearts more than anything. 😇

Mygirlypedia

I have intentions to improve mygirlypedia and keep you guys informed and entertained. For which I really need your love in 2018 also, more than what you gave me in 2017. 😘

Eight main intentions for two zero one eight.

What are yours???

Have a great new year eve guys…!!! 😘
