HAMDARD SAFI – THE BLOOD PURIFIER

Hey guys, how are you all?

I hope you all have started working on your New Year Eve plans like shopping, travelling visiting relatives and much more. Well, what about your skin, which is now more prone to sweat, makeup, dust and much more these days and due to all this has started to get those irritating acne, marks and pimples. Urgh! Who wants that?

These days I am super busy with my New year Resolutions and shoots. All these things have obviously affected my skin care regime which makes my skin even more prone to pimples and acne and that’s when my mom suggested me to start my day with two spoons of SAFI.She mentioned that it is easy to use unlike other skin care routines and treatments hence can effortlessly be a part of my hectic routine.

I am sure every one of you is aware of and must have tasted it at least once in your life. Safi by the trusted brand HAMDARD is a blood purifier and is available since many years and recommended by all who have tried it. It comes handy in festival days and especially when you need that natural glow on your face all throughout the day.

About Safi

SAFI (Arabic) is a masculine name of Arabic origin meaning “pure”-Hamdard Safi Blood Purifier is Unani proprietary medicine used for blood detoxification and improving skin glow and complexion. Safi purifies the blood from within by giving your liver and the rest of your body the support they need in eliminating the toxins that usually cause acne and blemishes. Safi’s blend of essential herbal extracts keeps your skin pimple free and glowing.

To know more about Safi, check out their website, here is the link: http://www.hamdard.in/product/safi

Ingredeints:

Safi Syrup is composed of the following active ingredients – Sana, RevandChini, Neem, Tulsi and Chiraita.

Directions to use:

Take a steel medium sized glass. Fill in with water fully. Now, add two spoons of Safi in it. You can drink Safi either with water or with fruit juice. Drink it religiously for at least 3 weeks.

Packaging:

It is a typical bottle which is made of plastic. Due to blackish liquid inside, it appears black in colour though the bottle is transparent. There is variety of sizes available, the one I got is big in size. The new packaging says 21 days pimple free and glowing skin formula. It has a very practical packaging and hence can be easily carried around in your bag.

Benefits:

  • Purifies blood
  • Indian brand
  • Affordable
  • No side effects
  • Adds glow
  • Contains Sana, RevandChini, Neem, Chiraita, Tulsi
  • Checks nose bleeding
  • Cures constipation
  • Corrects indigestion
  • Easily available
  • Natural cure for skin disorders

Personal Experience:

Often we have heard that all bitter things have sweet results. Safi is exactly that! Its taste is a bit on the bitter side due to all the natural ingredients it contains but when mixed with one glass of water I completely forgot about its real taste. It however tastes just perfect.

So, I decided to take this Safi course, and I can’t believe how Safi is doing wonders to my skin.

Safi claims to clear your skin and start seeing the effects in 21 days, it also claims to check nose bleeding, cures constipation, corrects digestion and  helps stay slim, what else a girl or a woman want in life !?

Most of the teenagers face acne problem now a days and rather than falling prey to cosmetics and treatments which claim acne free skin, I would recommend to use Safi skin tonic daily which cures acne from within. It goes to the root of the problem and solves it. It is not a temporary solution like other medicines and creams.

Using it for almost 17 days and most of my skin problems have vanished and I fell my skin becoming fairer.

Also, a light glow has been added to my skin. As Safi has blood purifying agent, so even if there are no skin problems it can still be taken to improve digestion. I no longer have any indigestion problems. Thus I feel good about myself.

So, what are you all waiting for lovelies?  Buy it now and get a pimple free and glowing skin in few weeks. Stay beautiful from inside and feel beautiful.

PONCHO TREND FOR FALL

Hi loves,How have you been?

You all might have heard about a “PONCHO” right? Who says it’s only for winter?!?

A poncho in a cotton knit, merino wool, or cashmere will have nice drape while still adding warmth when layered over other tops. It’s really appealing to see how a rectangular piece of fabric, with a hole in the center for you to put your head through making a statement wears among celebrities and fashion enthusiasts.

During the past few years, this trend has spread like a transmittable disease. Women around the sphere have craved for new and trendy forms of a wrap or shawl, a good-looking, light alternative of the heavy winter wears.

This craving was justified by the comeback of ponchos which proved to be modishly warm. It made a woman look elegant and chic in appearance keeping her comfortable inside. The most popular of this type of poncho is one in a sweater knit, like my cashmere poncho. These can be of most any fabric and most any weight. This look is a great casual or weekend way to wear a poncho.

Fall and other season essentials consist of many things-heavy knits, layering pieces and cozy textiles. Thankfully, one key garment combines all these things in one: PONCHO

They are the most understated form of outerwear ever! Whether you’re going to class, to a dinner party or even the gym, they are the best way to cover up while sporting one of the chicest styles. It has to be in wardrobe so I got my hands on this poncho top from www.goswankyy.com

Goswankyy strives to provide a swanky and amazing collection to their customers. They have really exciting offers collection of different varieties of clothing and accessories like dresses, shrugs, tops, ponchos, bottoms and much more. I really loved their collection and I got my hands on this knitted poncho with red and cream combination and some pompom attached to it.

COMING TO THE LOOK I CREATED- THERE ARE TWO LOOKS I FOCUSED ON – THE WINTER AND THE SPRING LOOK.

Bcoz, be it any season ponchos are always in. The winter look tend to be a binnie, the poncho, thigh high socks and boots and the spring look is all about some cute smile and wearing the same with shorts and  a hat !

A gold pendant and cuff add shine while also weighing down the poncho to better show your shape; a bag with texture or a contrast color will add the necessary pop to the clean look.

If not mixed and matched properly, it may look bulky, so extra care must be taken to keep the bottom-wear minimal. They can be well combined with shorts, cropped pants or fitted jeans.

THE RUNNING WHITE THREAD- CHIKANKARI- FT. ADACHIKAN

Hello Readers,

How have you been ?

So, today I‘ll be sharing some information about Lucknowi Chikankari Clothes, which I stumbled upon !

Among the many treasures available in India, a universally beloved one is chikankari. This type of embroidery originates in Lucknow and is a famous folklore which was brought to India from Persia by Noor Jehan, wife of Mughal emperor Jehangir. Chikan gets its name from the Persian word ‘chikan’, which means ‘running thread through cloth’.

Chikankari began as white-on-white embroidery. It essentially was made using a white thread on a muslin or gossamer cloth clearly an Indian summer favourite.

CURRENT TRENDS

It has become the fashion statement now and as the summers are in, so is the demand of chikankari.  The designs, patterns and motifs have been ultimately modified since the past.

The latest trends portray that the brides who tend to have their marriages in summers hugely demand for a Chikankari Lehenga as it is super comfortable to wear and great for summers.

Besides the comfort, it gives you an extraordinarily gorgeous look.Chikankari isn’t just for women, but for men too. This royal art delivers incredible pieces of men’s kurta- pajama, shirts, sherwanis etc. which are both casual and formal in nature.

It lends you a charismatic individuality and you make a style statement wherever you go!

A LITTLE ABOUT ADA CHIKAN

Yeah, so I got an amazing collection of chikankari this season from www.adachikan.com

Ada conceptualized art of chikankari on a different, albeit traditional platform. Ada, brought together the finest artisans who with their nimble fingers started crafting breathtaking chikankari designs on finest fabrics which became a delightful appreciation for the cognoscente.

To break the monotony of chikankari on a dress, a fusion of ‘Zardozi’, ‘Aari’ and ‘Kaamdani’ with ‘Muqaish’ (flattened silver or golden wire) is done which enhances its beauty.

Ada as a brand, launched its retail outlet in the up market locales of Hazratganj, Lucknow in 2005. Although, the collection of ‘chikankari’ garments started atleast a decade earlier.

I got some lovely collection from their website like a chikankari handmade kurti, a short top and a pair of pallazos.

1.WHITE COTTON LUCKNOWI CHIKANKARI KURTA

 

 

 

 

Transform your evening look with instant elegance and sass with this stunning White hand embroidered cotton kurti  that oozes sleek sensuality.

ARE PALLAZOS A RIGHT CHOICE?

Are you tired of wearing the boring simple pants or jeans?

Well, it’s high time to bring a little change in your wardrobe. Yes, I am talking about PALLAZZOS.

 

Palazzos are extremely trendy and great to wear with any outfit for women. The mainstream trousers, skinny pants, and tights have gone out of fashion. If you want to try something new with your outfit then can get unlimited inspiration and ideas from this post.

These pants can be worn with crop tops, tank tops, lace tops, simple shirts etc. They can be worn to all the occasions. These pants are best suited for any season . The top fashion designers and celebrities also adore this trend.

You can wear them for your formal functions, hangouts with friends, business trips or at work also. You can check out the celebrities wearing it to several occasions. They have been spotted several times wearing these pants.
