D.I.Y. Acne Scars Lightening Methods


Acne is certainly identical to an evil spirit, which leaves behind its horrors. On dispelling of acne, your face still does not become blemish free. The next main concern remains of acne scars. These are hard to vanish. They engrave themselves deep within the skin and their roots are hard to chisel. This is the reason why it takes hell lot of time for them to recover on their own. Acne and its scars do not exist simply on skin surface but are embedded multiple layers within. So, the healing process needs external help for quick recovery. This article would guide you through different natural methods to lighten acne scars. These methods would incorporate easy to find products that are readily available in your kitchen.
Let’s begin.


1.)           LEMON, HONEY AND TURMERIC PASTE:-
Squeeze out juice of half a lemon and add a pinch of turmeric to it. Remember, do not add too much of turmeric because it will make your face look yellow. Now, add 1 tsp of honey if you have dry skin. For oily or combination skin ladies, they can add ¾th of a tsp of honey. Mix all the three to form a paste. Apply it directly with fingers (freshly washed). Keep it for 20 to 30 minutes.
Lemon has lightening properties. It contains natural bleach; hence it would help in lightening scars. Honey has antiseptic properties, plus it would add hydration to nullify the dryness that would be caused by usage of lemon. Lastly, turmeric is beneficial for healing properties.





2.)           OLIVE OIL/ COCONUT OIL/ PURE ALMOND OIL:-
Oils have been used since ancient times for their multiple benefits. Not only are they good for moisturization, but they also help in lightening scars or skin.
For lightening acne scars, you can use either Coconut oil or Olive oil or Almond oil, dip a cotton ball into one of the above mentioned oil and apply it on your face before you go to sleep. Remember to wash your face first and then use this method. No method is going to work with unwashed face. You can alternate between these oils to gain maximum benefit. Your cotton ball shouldn’t be dripping with oil but just lightly dipped, enough to apply thin layer. After application, rub your fingers on your face to give it warmth so that the oils are easily absorbed. Keep it over night and wash it normally with face wash or whatever you use.
Always use pure oils rather than diluted ones.
(BRANDS THAT CAN BE USED- Parachute Coconut oil, Figaro Olive oil and Roghan Badam Oil)



3.)           POTATO JUICE:-
Take a potato, peel away its skin and then grate it. Collect the grated potato and scrunch it to collect its juice. Add a few drops of lemon (optional) so that potato juice does not change its colour. Dip a cotton ball and apply it on your face. Since, this is completely natural and has no chemicals; you can keep it overnight for maximum benefits.
P.S. the same can be used for treating dark circles, but do skip on the lemon juice.

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
