Herbal teas are powerhouse of energy. The studies shows the consumption of herbal teas can also improve your metabolism and keep your skin looking awesome. Some popular teas are available in stores but its lacking the health benefit.

Recent research have shown which is done by Prof. Chaudhary from the institute of Applied Chemistry, University of Karachi, Pakistan, that tea is the richest source of antioxidants called flavonoids.” The antioxidants activity of tea is better than Vitamin-E in part due to its better bioavailability after ingestion.”

Critical reviewer in Food Sciences and Nutrition reveals the same findings as stated by Prof. Chaudhary. The researcher of this study found out that constant exposure to free radicals damages the DNA of the body cells which can then leads to disease like cancer, heart attack and loss of memory.

In other studies, the researcher have found that flavonoids are better scavengers of free radicals and prevent fat oxidation, which is the harbinger of deadly heart attack.

My Favorite Makeup Foundations

DSC_0978_pe

(All products are purchased by me. I am not affiliated with any company or website. This is my honest opinion about the product)

There are lots of foundations in our market these days. Both expensive and cheap ones. Drugstore foundations are also good and within your budget. In this post I want to share three of my favorite foundations but they have some drawbacks. They do not deliver what they say. I like the Maybelline “fit me” foundation SPF 18. It is good foundation but there was no pump in it and it is not full coverage foundation but it gives a natural effect to your skin that’s why I like this foundation for  daylight use. The second one is Revlon “photo-ready” SPF 20 foundation. The company says it gives full coverage and airbrush effect but it is not full coverage but it is photo-ready, the photos come out very good. I like this foundation because it gives a dewy look specially for a dinner party.

The other high end foundation is Kryolan foundation. I like this foundation because it gives a full coverage and it is long lasting. I used this foundation on special occasions. Kryolan foundations can be ordered online from http://www.camerareadycosmetics.com . There are no stores from where I can buy Kryolan easily. I do not have access to professional outlet where I could buy Kryolan.

Essential oils have to be combined with abase or carrier oils such sesame, Almond, Coconut or olive oil to reduce its strength. Otherwise they may cause an unfortunate allergic reaction to your skin. These carrier oils are according to your skin type. It should not be used by pregnant woman.
