Glowing skin this holiday season!

Christmas is just around the corner, and so I am sharing with you guys my best kept secret for an instantly glowing skin!

A good face scrub is really important to get rid of the dead skin and blackheads. I love adding Cinnamon in my face scrub because it increases blood flow and boosts collagen production. Cinnamon is also a great anti-oxidant and helps reduce acne. So here’s my cinnamon scrub for glowing skin in winters.

What you’ll need

  • 1 tablespoon oats
  • 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil

Easy Winter DIY skincare

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a smooth paste. Apply this scrub on the face with your fingers and massage in circular motions. And then wash off with water.

Skincare tips for winter

P.S. Cinnamon may cause a tingling feeling when applied but that’s normal. But if the tingling is bothering you too much just wash off the scrub with water.

Follow this with your fav moisturizer and you are all good to go!

Hope you loved this super easy face scrub. Let me know in comments below ❤️

Formula 10.0.6 – Deep Down Detox Orange Bergamot MUD MASK review.

DETOX is the it-word for summer, for skin detox mud masks are the best. Mud Masks have loads of benefits like detox, deep cleansing, exfoliation and nutrition.

Today I am going to share with you a mud mask I have been trying for a while now, the Formula Ten-O-Six Deep Down Detox.


Application: 

Formula 10.0.6 - Deep Down Detox Orange Bergamot MUD MASK review.

Apply a thin layer of the mask on cleansed skin. The mask smells WOW thanks to the the orange and bergamot mix😊.

When I applied this mask I had a slight  tingling feeling, which shows that the product is doing it’s job.

Allow this mask to dry and then rince it off with warm water, you can even choose to scrub it off gently using circular motions ( to exfoliate) before rincing.

Why the Ten-O-Six Deep Down Detox Mud Mask? 

The mask is filled with goodness of orange, bergamot and sea salt which help to remove impurities.

The Kaolin Clay helps to soothe and nourish the skin and the Bentonite clay absorbs the impurities from the skin and helps in regeneration of skin tissues, great for fine lines and wrinkles.


I have been using this mask for over a month now and my skin is more clear and bright.

This mask works great for oily to combination skin.  Be careful if you have dry skin this mask may dry it out more, follow it up with a rich hydrating cream.
