Do you know that there are 336 million menstruating women in India, out of which 121 million use sanitary pads? A simple calculation will reveal that almost 1 billion sanitary pads are used and disposed off every year. A majority of menstruators rely on disposable sanitary napkins (DSNs), while they are disposable they are also non-biodegradable. The absorbent core is made of wood pulp, the absorbing gel is made of absorbent polymers and the wings have non-biodegradable adhesive. The primary component of all DSNs are plastic. Various environment advocacy groups have recognised the problem attached to DSNs and their prolonged use. A sustainable choice can be: 1. Biodegradable Sanitary Napkins: They can decompose in 6-12 months. 2. Reusable Cloth Pads and Menstrual Underwear: Can be used for an year or two. 3. Menstrual cups: Made of medical-grade silicone and are reusable for upto 5-10 years. Switching to eco-friendly products is a natural process for most menstruators. Prolonged use of DSNs has resulted in rashes, itching and skin sensitivity. Also pads and tampons end up in landfills before they break down into microplastics that pollute oceans, rivers, beaches and contaminate our water supply. If you are looking for a switch, we have some great options for you: 1. Biodegradable Super Soft Black Sanitary Pads/Napkins - Small (S) Day Pads - 20 Count (2 Pack - 10 Pads Each) 2. Menstrual Cup- Small 3. Medium Flow Tampons (Box of 8) 100% Cotton Certified Biodegradable The path to making sustainable menstruating a reality is slow but not impossible!

You can get healthy glowing skin without spending a fortune, but how you may ask? Well, keep reading to know! A good shower routine not only work on your skin it is also great for your mental health. Working overtime, need to de stress? Hop in the shower and relax! Mood elevators in shower: 1. Use scented products - be it skincare products, candles or essential oils. 2. Introduce plants in your bathroom. If you can’t take care of them even artificial ones will do the job. 3. Follow an extensive pampering routine. Here’s how to have a relaxing and wholesome shower: 1. Remove makeup first: Use a gentle oil cleanser to remove all traces of makeup. You do not want your mascara running on your face while in the shower right!? 2. Avoid hot showers: We know nothing is more relaxing than a hot bath and it’s a bummer. Prolonged use of hot water on your skin will strip off its natural oils. 3. Moisturise while skin is still damp: Get the most out of your body care products by applying them on damp skin. This way it will also get absorb faster and you will not get any sticky feeling. Our favourite bath products that you should definitely check out: 1. Hawaiian Rumba Shower Gel - 240 ml 2.

You must be noticing an influx of Indian skincare brands coming up with new sunscreen launches these days. We say it’s a good thing, you will have a plethora of options to choose from! Wearing sunscreen is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your skin’s appearance and health at any age. Importance of daily sunscreen use: 1. Reduce the risk of sunburn 2. Prevents the signs of aging 3. Reduce your risk of skin cancer 4. Prevents pigmentation Just like table etiquette, we have some sunscreen etiquette as well (cuz come on!): 1. For the nth time, yes you have to wear sunscreen indoors, on rainy days and everyday! 2. No, highlighting your high points will not do (hi Gwyneth Paltrow!). You should use enough sunscreen to create an even layer on your skin. 3. Choose a sunscreen with proper sunscreen filters. Organic oils and herbs don’t count as sunscreen. 4. Pick a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Get your hands on SPF 50+ if you spend most of your time outdoors. 5. That SPF 15 in your foundation is not enough to protect your skin. If you are looking for a daily sunblock we have some amazing options for you: Minimalist Multi Vitamin SPF 50 PA ++++ Plum Green Tea Sunscreen Earth Rhythm SPF 50 - Hybrid Sun Fluid FAE Beauty SPF Juice Bubblefarm Ultra Light Daily Sunshield

Some of the major makeup issues in summer are cakey foundation, smudged mascara, sticky lipsticks, shiny forehead and more. At times it gets embarrassing in public and not to mention ruins your well-put-together look. We have some tips for you to keep your face looking fresh and clean no matter what’s the weather: 1. Always keep a blotting paper / matte compact with you. These will help in soaking extra sheen from your skin without moving the makeup. 2. Start with a minimal skincare routine. Avoid any heavy formula or layering too many products. In our opinion just a cleanser and sunscreen will do. 3. Use a mattifying primer. A good base will go a long way. Primer will help you achieve an oil free and intact makeup look throughout the day. 4. Skip the foundation. Go for a concealer or a bb cream. Less is more in this heat, foundation might make your skin look cakey and dull. 5. Use waterproof eyeshadows, eyeliner and mascara. Nobody likes having panda eyes at 10 in the morning. 6. Lock it. Get your hands on a good setting spray that will keep your makeup looking fresh while also keeping it in place. 7. Drink plenty of water! The more you hydrate and cool your body the less you are likely to sweat.

Skinimalism, lazy-girl skin care, simple skincare no matter what you call it, it simply means a minimalist to approach to skincare. There has been a recent rise of skincare-minimalism due to various reasons like- awareness among consumers, brands coming up with multipurpose and multi- actives products which cuts down lots of skincare steps, budgeting priorities due to a worldwide pandemic etc. While no matter how it came into rise, it’s staying for the good and everyone should follow it, let me tell you why: 1. Less carbon footprint. The less you consume the lower will be your carbon footprint. 2. Having multiple products doing same things is a sheer wastage of both money and resources. 3. Prevents the risk of reaction on skin and not knowing which product caused it. 4. Skinimalism promotes consistency which helps us with better results. 5. Needless to say you will save tons of money. In case you are thinking of cutting down on your steps, read on to know what you must not compromise with: • A good cleanser. • Your prescribed treatment products. • Moisturiser suitable for your skin. • A broad spectrum sunscreen. Do ponder over it and tell us how you can do your bit in the comments section!
