Keep Your Skin Healthy During Winters By Vibhu & Me
Winter skin is not an easy to go with thing for many of us. As the temperature goes down it also takes away the humidity of environment which creates an atmosphere making our skin dry. This dryness if not treated well can make the skin dull, rough and flaky too. Also, if the cure to dryness for some people with a sensitive skin may become reason for irritating pimples or itchiness. For many people, applying moisturizer on skin is not that helpful as it is supposed to be. Reason may be their extra dry skin or other.

Here are five very important and very easy ways all of us should adopt to avoid winters from being harsh on our supple skin:
  1. Avoid hot water washing: Yes most of us start our day with washing our face in the morning or taking a bath, it is very important to ensure the water used for washing your skin is not much warmer. Using just lukewarm water is just perfect as the use of chilling regular water is also something that should be avoided. Very warm water leaves skin even dry and causes roughness of skin.
  2. Drink plenty of water to keep skin hydrated: Right hydration is not possible from merely oiling and greasing the skin from outside, it also requires right hydration from inside. When you drink sufficient water the skin gets more genuine reasons to remain soft and supple.
  3. Combination of sunbath and SPF is great: While most of us are tested lacking vitamin D in their body, winters are the only season when taking a sunbath is soothing. While at one hand it provides relaxation from chilling winds, it helps in boosting the level of vitamin D for our body. However, the winter sun is also as harmful as the sun during summers as long as our skin is concerned. The UV rays of sun are effective in winters too and may cause tanning on skin. So, it is good to apply a moisturizer with SPF when you are going out in the sun for more than 15 minutes.
  4. Choose right time for moisturizing: Applying moisturizer on your body or face is ideal when you apply it after bathing or washing your face. The pores on skin remain open for some time after washing it, thus, applying moisturizer at this time heals the skin from inside and provides longer hydration, glow and softness than otherwise. In the same way, it is very good to apply moisturizer on skin in the night before going to bed. The skin is in relax mode during night when you are hardly exposed to any pollution or work. It also goes deep into the skin and provides better results.  
  5. Eat right in winters too: A balanced diet is always important because what you eat gets reflected on your skin. Unhealthy junk food may cause tired face or even pimples while balanced healthy diet gives a natural glow on skin. To ensure a balanced diet, including fruits and salads into it. Vitamin C intake is important for natural glowing skin and all day energy, so plan your diet accordingly. Taking nuts all through this season is very good for all types of healthy while juices and milk are also part of good diet. If you are non-vegetarian include fish and eggs in your diet. 
Just the five of these are going to help your winter skin case easy and will surely make your winters breezy.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.

Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby.

My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.

After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
