Gold Collagen – Skin care starts with a sip

Hello there ! How have all of you been? I am really enjoying my holidays and loved the feeling of being close to nature with less of social media with me. We all really love and want that kind of break, don’t we ? It gives time to revive yourself. And there is one such product that I have been using lately, that is reviving my skin – Gold Collagen!

I have been using the Pure Gold Collagen, the first thing in the morning, for over a month now and my skin feels superb and feels more softer. It is my skin doctor and works with the ageing process. One bottle of 50ml should be consumed on empty stomach for best absorption or Alternatively,  consume it after food if you experience indigestion or gastrointestinal upset.
What is Collagen?
Collagen is a
major structural protein in the body. It plays a key role in providing the
structural scaffolding for cells, tissues, and organs but it also gives skin
strength and durability and is responsible for the smooth, toned appearance of
young, healthy skin.

As we age, the production of collagen,
elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin gradually decreases which causes
dehydration, sagging skin and a dull complexion which leads to the signs of
ageing. 
The unique hydrating properties of hyaluronic acid, vitamins and
minerals combined with the highest quality collagen contained in GOLD COLLAGEN® offers the ultimate in skin cell regeneration and
hydration, resulting in increased smoothness, softening the appearance of fine
lines and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles as well as supporting joint and
muscle health.
Also containing vitamin C to boost the
transformation of natural amino acids ( lysine and proline ) into collagen, GOLD COLLAGEN®liquid provides
the essential building blocks required to support the metabolic functions of collagen
producing cells. This gives better skin tone, optimal skin hydration levels and
the ability to recapture a youthful radiance.
GOLD
COLLAGEN®    
is sugar-free and up to 20 times more effective than using a
topical collagen cream or collagen pill. Whilst some creams claim to be able to reach
the dermis, GOLD COLLAGEN®actually
targets the fibroblast cells, triggering them to make more collagen.

Their range includes – PURE GOLD COLLAGEN , ACTIVE GOLD COLLAGEN and  
GOLD
COLLAGEN®FORTE .

PURE GOLD COLLAGEN® helps to fight the early signs of ageing.
ACTIVE GOLD COLLAGEN® works from within to help fight the
appearance of ageing while promoting muscle and joint health. 
GOLD COLLAGEN®FORTE – fights the advanced signs of ageing. Forte
supplies the body with all the ingredients it needs to fight back against free
radicals and naturally boost its own collagen production as well as providing
antioxidant support.

My Highlights from Hairworks

It is summer time and I like to experiment with my looks and my hair. So wanted to try the award winning Hairworks Salon located at Umm Suqueim branch, inside Spinneys. This is what I have been up to lately.

Hair works are Hair Idol winners of 2012. Their stylists are friendly and quite expertised in their work. The hairdressers are trained to the highest standards, all oozing talent, creativity and flair so that they can give all clients the best haircut or style. They have variety of treatments for hair and beauty like highlights, blow dry, hair coloring, eyelash extension, eyebrow tinting, manicure, pedicure, rebonding, etc. Looking at all their pictures on their Instagram account, you will be surely be tempted to try them out. 

I really wanted to enjoy the experience but a car banged me from behind on the way for my appointment, so had to hurry up with my hair highlights. By God’s grace nothing happened to me or my car. I feel the Hairdresser should have chosen a little lighter shade as the highlights were hardly visible on my light brown hair. Overall, my hair did look good after getting the highlights done.
Here is sneak peak at the saloon and my look :-

Before we start, here is a picture.

You can book your appointment online at www.hairworksbeauty.com or call the Umm Sequiem branch at 04 – 3940777. You can also check out their website for other branches.

My Makeup essentials

Hello Divas ! The two important beauty product that I can’t do without is Mikyajy Sabaya waterproof Eyeliner and Mascara 2-in-1 and Bioderma Sensibio H20 solution, which needs no introduction and is the favourite of many beautiful women across the globe.

I like the Sabaya waterproof eyeliner and mascara as they are perfect for any season and I don’t need to carry two products in my handbag. It is jet black and needs to be removed with a good waterproof makeup remover or wipe.

Now the revolutionary product, Bioderma Sensibio H2O solution. It is a wonderful water based solution to clean your skin and works very well with my sensitive skin. It works wonders to remove makeup and also the dirt from the skin. My skin texture has improved too.

I hope you enjoyed reading my favourite products. I would love to hear from you followers also about your personal favorites.

Till the next post, see ya and have a beautiful blast !

My Magic Makeover

This came as a surprise to me. I won ‘My Oasis Magic Makeover’ from the Gulf News. I can’t describe how happy I was as I was going to be pampered like a Princess.

Before the makeover

The makeover included hair wash, hair cut and blow dry from Spaces Salon Oasis Centre, make up by Pro make up, Oasis centre.  Guiding me throughout was fashion stylist Ms. Gemma Jones. She asked me what was missing in my wardrobe ? I wanted a summer maxi for my wardrobe since a very long time so she set herself to find me a good and a stylish one. I must say that she has a very good sense of fashion and style.
She chose the dress and all the other accessories. What better way to finish the makeover with a photo shoot. I am sure you will love to have a glimpse. So here it is…..(Don’t forget to look at the end for outfit details)

Iftar at Time Oak Hotel

Ramadan Kareem to the wonderful people. Iftar is fun and full of love as all friends and relatives do get together and there is a lot of bonding too. I enjoy spending time with my family too. I got invited to the Iftar at Time Oak Hotel, located at Al Barsha, by family and would love to share my experience with you all.

The ambience at Petals Restaurant, Time Oak Hotels, was nice but the restaurant was not lit enough. The lights went off for a minute while dining in too. I had to find a good place to sit under the lights so that I could see what I was eating, hehe. The decor of the restaurant was good and the food was decorated well too. There were a lot of options for non vegetarian with loads of meat items,  etc. with biryani too. The restaurant had loads of salad dishes too. Being a vegetarian there were very less options at The Petals Restaurant. The manager of the restaurant was courteous enough to arrange a vegetarian main course dish for us. There were more than 10 varieties of sweets too. Is your mouth watering now? Will not keep you waiting. Let’s have a glimpse at some of the Iftar pictures.

Konjac Sponge Review – My New Skincare Favourite

What is trending on news lately is this Konjac Sponges for skincare. I have been using the French Pink Clay Konjac Sponge for over a month now and I thought of sharing this Magic product review for skincare with you all. I am sure it will become your favourite too. Let’s have a look at it.

Konjac Sponges are an Award winning face and Body sponges. They are Vegan and Cruelty- Free. Konjac Sponge is made with 100% natural Konjac fibre; from the root of the konjac plant. A naturally moisture rich edible plant, which is by nature, alkaline and balances the acidity of the skin and its oils. The unique structure of the sponge gently massages the skin and stimulates blood flow and new growth of skin cells, leaving the skin extremely soft, clean and hydrated.
Benefits of Konjac Sponge :-
  • Revitalizes the face and body.
  • Gentle enough for the delicate eye area.
  • Gently exfoliates your skin, leaving it with a healthy natural glow.
  • Massage helps stimulating and encouraging cell renewal.
  • Deeply cleanses the pores helping eliminate dirt, excess oil, bacteria, blackheads and blocked pores.
  • Does not damage the delicate skin surface and is non-abrasive.
  • No need for additional cleansers.
  • Extra soft texture is ideal for even the most hypersensitive skins.
How to use the Konjac Sponge :-
Once you open the packet of the sponge , don’t be puzzled as you will find the sponge like a hard rock and you will keep thinking, “Is it really a sponge? How can this be so soft?
To soften the sponge, you need to run it under warm water for few minutes or just soak it in warm water for sometime. 
  • Always rinse before use and fully hydrate the sponge.
  • Massage the skin in small circular movements with damp sponge (cleanser required only if you have make up on).
  • Rinse the sponge thoroughly after use and gently squeeze out excess water.
  • Hang in a cool & ventilated area to air dry (never leave it in shower).
  • Change your sponge every 1 to 3 months or soon as it starts to look tired !
The Range :-
There are various types of Konjac Sponge for face and body to suit every skin type and also there is The Pure Baby sponges which is suitable for all infants from birth. They also have the Sports and Travel sponge. To learn more about them and their range, click here.
There are great for deep cleansing but still kind to your skin and what more they are totally natural. They clean the pores also really well. My skin has become more radiant and clean. You can apply a mask after cleaning your face with the sponge, for best results. 
You can find them at all Holland & Barrett stores, Basharacare.com and House of Fraser- Middle East/Yas Mall.
