Current Crush – Evion Aloe Vera and Vitamin E Cream

Posts by on December 4, 2013

I came across this cream in a chemist’s shop and thought of giving it a try because Evion is a known name for Vitamin E capsule which are prescribed by doctors.  Also because these days I am on a hunt to find a good face cream. I have normal to dry skin and so the heavy face creams tend to break me out and also cause me severe blackheads issue. On the other hand too light creams tend to make my skin dry and stretchy.

This is just the perfect one for me, medium consistency, mildly scented,gets absorbed in skin easily. I have been using it for quite sometime now and feel there is a reduction in some uneven sin tone issue I was having. The only issue I find, since no SPF is mentioned it has got no sun protection.

Hello friends,

Depending upon the area on which you have stretch marks take small amount of curd in a bowl and mix turmeric to it. You can keep the ratio as 4 spoons curd with 1/2 spoon turmeric. If you are little sensitive to turmeric reduce the quantity. Apply it on your stretch marks and leave it for 15 minutes. Then wash off with water. Do this daily and you will be able to see your stretch marks reducing. To avoid stretch marks during pregnancy you can start applying this mixture from early pregnancy only to keep the skin supple and increase it’s elasticity.

Easy Aloe Vera Storage Method

We all are quiet aware of aloe vera miracles. It’s use is widespread be it in treating acne, scars, stretch marks, minor burns etc. Read about using aloe vera for acne.Even though we get it in gel form in market but I have not found them as effective as the fresh one. But I also dont have the time and patience to take out fresh aloe vera juice every day. So I figured out an easy way of storing it for using it on my skin.

Take one big piece of aloe vera stem from your plant. Clean it nicely and then remove it’s skin from sides where there are small thorns

Then cut it into small pieces for storage and keep it in freezer

Now whenever you need to use it for applying on skin just take out a piece and rub it on you face or wherever required. As it frozen it soothes the skin more and also it is easy to apply. You don’t need to remove the skin also, the aloe vera juice just melts off as it thaws and you rub on your skin.
This storage method has made my life so easy and now I am able to use aloe vera on regular basis. So are you going to try this out???

Aloe Vera Wonders For Pimple

Posts by on August 7, 2012


I recently got an overnite face cream and with couple of uses only it gave me breakouts :( . I was feeling very sad due to the pimple breakout and was more worried about the marks they would leave. To my good luck my neighbor visited me after one day and suggested me to use aloe vera gel. She had aloe vera plant in her home. So I got one big aloe vera leave from her house and also one small plant to put it my home(let’s see how much time it takes to grow). I applied aloe vera gel from the leave on all my pimples and would leave it to dry off. To my happy surprise the pimples were considerably reduced in size and were almost gone in around 3 days with almost no scars left.  I would say my pimples went off quickly since I started applying the aloe vera in very beginning only, for other individuals it would definitely depend on the size of the pimple and the frequency of application.

Will keep you posted on how my aloe vera plant is growing :)
