Are you into dry brushing?

For me, it was something I wanted to get into the habit of but successfully brushed off the thoughts by not even buying one. Why ?! I was stuck in a dilemma, whether it is a needed thing or just hype !!!


When you think of dry brushing, what comes to mind – alone and lone Exfoliation? I was on the same page for a long-time. With some research, I learned about all the value it can bring to health and the body. Yes, it is the process of getting rid of dead skin while increasing circulation.

But dry brushing is not limited to solely exfoliation. Long-term benefits include: 

-help in getting rid of toxins

-lymphatic drainage 

-increase blood circulation 

-reduce the appearance of cellulite

– softer, smoother skin, and so on.

How to Dry Brush?

Always start from the feet and move the way up to the body. The direction of the stroke should be towards the heart and circular stroke on the stomach and joints.

My experience:

The very first of mine and the one I am using is from Carelavco.

 This Dry Brushing Body Brush Set comes with a big brush, a small brush for face and sensitive areas, a detachable handle for back or unreachable areas, a pair of exfoliating gloves to use in the shower, and a travel bag. 

After using it for almost three months, I am very much enjoying it as part of my routine. It’s suggested that you can use it daily, but I use it before shower, 2-3 times a week, depending on how lazy I am not (just kidding). The reason behind not incorporating it into my day-to-day pre-shower ritual is because I don’t want to irritate the skin by overdoing it. I am not still comfortable at that level.

The 5-10 minutes of this process feels very energizing, relaxing just as getting massaged at a spa minus the expenses (a zen moment). My skin has felt a lot smoother, and I am looking forward to seeing improvements in cellulite and other benefits. After the shower, do not forget to hydrate and moisturizer the body with oil, cream, lotion, or whatever you prefer using- super important.

Be gentle – Harshness can damage the skin. As well as knowing your skin or any health condition before using one is the key to experience a positive outcome.

I love my at-home spa moment with dry brushing but still too early to say whether it is a must-have or not.

So, are you a team dry brushing, or its hype? I Would love to hear your thoughts.

If you are looking to try one, you can grab this set at Amazon.

Pureauty Naturals:  mantra: Be Confident. Be Beautiful. Be You! 

Pureauty creates nourishing products that awaken your purity and beauty every day. Each Pureauty product has at least three main active ingredients that work to give your skin and hair the love it deserves. All of our products are made in the United States and are cruelty-free.


The biotin hair strengthening serum provides nutrition with its advanced formula Biotin, Pea Sprout Extract, and Pro-Vitamin B5 that helps in stimulating hair roots, improving hair health, and promoting healthy hair growth. It helps add luster and volume to your hair making it look thicker, longer, and stronger.

It is formulated specifically with edges and hairline maintenance in mind, so it is also perfect for anyone looking to the fuller edges and hairlines.

The serum is for both men and women. Also, it is said to be suitable for all hair types -you name it curly, soft, blonde, brunette, long, short. To use it dispense 2-3 drops of serum onto the scalp or into the palm of your hand, gently work into the scalp by massaging in a circular motion. This is a leave-in product, so to make the most out of it, it is recommended to use the daily and leave-in overnight.

But if you are like me, who don’t wash the hair daily, it might take a little longer to see the results. My impression so far is: it is non-greasy, makes hair soft and gives volume after wash, less hair fall, no stain on pillowcase or clothes, smells good. Consistency is the key and recommended for anyone who is struggling with hair loss.


I am a dry skin queen. Not just my face but my whole body. Skipping on body care is solid no for me. As soon as I hoop out of the shower, I veil my body with good cream to get enough hydration and lock in moisture. One such cream that I am loving at the moment is Flores All Day Cream by the brand THE ESTABLISHED.

 My Impression of Flores All Day Cream

 This cream is a rich blend of nourishing plant-based oils and skin-softening botanicals that provides exceptional hydration and noticeably improves skin hydration levels. The whipped texture cream (looks almost edible —-😋 ) is nongreasy, absorbs quickly to keep skin soft and moisturized throughout the day without. Also, forget about reapplication even if you are desert-like me the cream got you covered. So, the cream would be a great addition to have for anyone who is seeking long term moisture and hydration for their dry and dehydrated skin.

Who doesn’t love smelling good ?!?!?! Am I right or Am I right? As the icing on the cake- the cream has a subtle scent of a citrusy floral with a faint musk undertone that will leave you smelling so good. Let me assure you- you want to sniff yourself whole day– Guilty one here.

To sum up, doesn’t matter whether you crave lotion, oil, or cream to keep skin beautiful, soft, hydrated throughout the year; just don’t skip on it. Like the face, don’t forget to include the body also in a daily part of the skincare routine. In the future, you will be thankful.


The Established is a clean black-owned skincare brand for the minimalist beauty enthusiast with a firm emphasis on results-driven skincare by the use of high-performing ingredients with a product line that is effortlessly effective. Each product is uniquely curated and handcrafted in small batches.

As much as I love my skincare routine and little me time, being a mom its not always possible to indulge in prolong shelf care routine. When I got the chance to try two of NATURALLY SERIOUS products that are cleanly made, consciously formulated, and ethically developed, I was beyond excited and now I am ready to share my experience with you.


NATURALLY SERIOUS is a cruelty-free, vegan brand that is formulated with no B.A.D. ingredients (Bad, Ambiguous, and Debatable). Their products also contain Anti-Pollution Blend of 6 anti-oxidants (pomegranate, goji berry, grape seed, green tea, red tea, and white tea) and Active Rescue Complex (edelweiss, imperatoria, swiss stone pine, and ViaPure Coleus) to help combat visible signs of aging caused by UV rays, pollution, free radical damage, and other environmental aggressors.

Fruit-Tox Resurfacing Facial Remedy

When I knew I was being gifted this mask I prayed it to work as it claims on my skin. Now after using and seeing the positive outcome, the mask is this lazy girl’s best friend. I i.e. SOLEY ME, have never come across a mask that does its job in less than 2 minutes unit now. Shower me with more of these kinds of products, please.

 Fruit-Tox Resurfacing Facial Remedy under two minutes does 3 in 1 job:- exfoliates, detoxify and makes skin bright and smooth. This multifunctional mask with major three ingredients among others is key to radiant, healthier-looking skin.

1) Red Clay that naturally draws out dirt, oil, and impurities

2) Fruit & Plant AHAs to brighten, resurface and improve skin’s appearance for rejuvenated results and

3) Volcanic Pumice to provides a powerful physical exfoliation for immediate radiance.


Ok, it is suggested to use on WET skin, and please do that otherwise you might experience tingling (guess who was the victim of that on 1st use—the lesson here—Always read the instructions carefully before any usages.

Generously apply the mask on wet skin, live it for 2 minutes. To take it off do not rub hard, gently massage by adding water, and wash off. Result get clear and glowing skin. Always follow by hydrating serum and moisturizer to amplify the results.

Major Moisture Gentle Cream Cleanser

It melts away makeup and impurities while naturally exfoliating and brightening the look of skin. It is a gentle cleanser that does not strip or dry the skin. I prefer using it as a second cleanser in my night time routine but it is perfectly fine to use both AM and PM. It is said to be suitable for all skin type and people with skincare concerns as dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and pore can make most of it.

Its packed with ingredients like Pomegranate Enzyme and Licorice Root Extract to exfoliate skin and increase cell renewal for a smoother, brighter-looking complexion, Coconut Oil to remove makeup, excess oil and impurities. Probiotics to restore skin’s natural balance, Squalane and Bisabolol to help soothe skin’s appearance.

Overall I love both of these products and they are working well for my skin. If you are into masking or in the hunt for gentle, hydrating cleanser, you might want to check them out.

My skin is nickel sensitive. I remember very clearly spending most of my teenage years applying Neosporin on my ears as this girl loved those fashion jewelry and still does. No regrets but was a painful experience. Also during those years, I never found nickel-free jewelry pieces where I lived. When I came to the US, jewelry for sensitive skin was easily available and STUDEX is one of the brands I remember buying during those college years. When I got an opportunity to collaborate with them, I had to grab it.

STUDEX has a high fashion earring solution for people who suffer from nickel sensitivity. I choose the golden hoop and blue stud. The earrings look very elegant. The sparkly studs, cute hoops are safe and light enough for daily use. Abundant styles, affordable prices and if you have sensitive skin like me, you might want to check them out.

From brand:
The Studex Sensitive Earrings Collection is an allergy-free, skin-friendly, and fashionable for sensitive ears. These earrings are made with Medical Grade Surgical steel which will not irritate your ears, and most importantly, save you from investing in a pricier pair of earrings.

Resveratrol 345NA Intensive Repair Cream

No, Resveratrol 345NA not the name of some celebrity child or Rocket. It is an intensive repair cream from Dr. Althea that is plant-derived, packed with amazing natural ingredients like Resveratrol, Fig, Lavender, and Turmeric among few. The cream claims to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helps to strengthen and improve the elasticity of the skin, helps to repair damaged skin, and regenerate healthier skin cells. It is also highly effective in soothing acne and skin inflammations. Anyone who is easily irritated by fragrances in product or just does not like to use one with, this cream would be the icing on the cake. Why……because it doesn’t contain any fragrances, artificial colors, or preservatives. It is also vegan and is said to be suitable for all skin types even though it is targeted for oily, inflammatory skin.

What is Resveratrol?

It is found naturally in the skin of red grapes, berries, and peanuts. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-aging properties as well as reducing sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Dr. Althea’s Resveratrol 345NA Intensive Repair Cream contains resveratrol from red grapes.

 How I use it?

The days I use actives, this is my moisturizer. It instantly calms the skin. When I apply it, I don’t have to add an extra layer of other moisturizer or oil after, it does its job of providing enough hydration and leaving skin moist and gives you glowing, soft skin next morning. The best part even though it’s a repair cream and has a thick texture, it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy upon application. A little amount goes a long way. Save it for the day when you feel like you have compromised your skin to too much of unnecessary products or just use it as a daily moisturizer or consider it as a rain check for the nights when you just want to cleanse and moisturizer but still wants to get benefits of hydrated, brightened, soft and smooth skin like a baby butt.

My overall experience with the cream is that my skin loves it and I think anyone who is looking to restore, rebuild, strengthen the skin barrier and bring back their skin to life will benefit from this cream.
