My Experience with Lotus Safe Sun Block Cream SPF 20

Packaging

The cream is available in an orange-colored squeeze bottle. It is in a secure, hygienic, and travel-friendly package.

Colour and Texture

The cream is of an off-white, almost pink color and is of mildly thick consistency. It is extremely creamy in texture and can be applied with great ease. It takes a few seconds of rubbing the cream onto the skin before it gets absorbed.

Fragrance

The Lotus Safe Sun Block Cream has a fruity berry-like fragrance which is slightly strong and lasts even after being in the water.

Experience

I found it to be a very effective sunscreen, especially for swimming as it does not get washed off easily. The fragrance though stronger than most other creams is still extremely pleasant and gives off a certain freshness.

Pros
  1. Smooth Creamy Texture
  2. Protects from UVA and UVB rays
  3. Does not wash off in the water
  4. Does not become greasy
  5. It is travel-friendly
Cons
  1. Slightly expensive
  2. A strong fragrance though not unpleasant

Would I repurchase or recommend it?

Yes, I would definitely recommend the Lotus Safe Sun Block Cream to all those who wish to not only protect themselves from the sun but also for swimming and other activities as it is completely water-proof and does not become greasy. However if you are looking for a sunblock cream without any fragrance, this sunscreen is not for you.

Rating- 4/5

What are the Different Waxing Options and Whi

What are the Different Waxes for Hair Removal Which One Should You Choose? : Waxing has been and continues to be one of the most popular hair removal techniques for women. Though a painful method for many, it is still the most sought after as hair does not grow back for a longer period of time unlike in shaving. There are various types of waxing methods based on the needs and skin type of each consumer.  Below are the different methods of waxing and the skin types they suit most.

What are the Different Waxing Options and Whi

Soft Wax

Also known as strip waxing. It is the most common method of waxing found in parlors. In this method, the heated wax is applied onto the skin and while it is still warm a strip of paper is used to remove it, thus removing the hair as well. The wax that is used in this method is usually paraffin or beeswax. Soft wax is further divided into two types- hot and cold. Hot wax requires the wax to be heated and hair is pulled out, while the cold wax is semi-soft wax already applied on strips ready for use.

Warm wax is used for body parts such as legs and arms.

Suitability

Soft wax can be used for a normal skin type. However, it is not suited for sensitive skin as stretching the skin might cause irritation and itchiness.

Cold wax is slightly more painful than hot wax though they are equally effective

Hard Wax

Hard wax as the name suggests is the method in which the wax is applied on the skin while still warm and allowed to be hardened. The wax is then pulled off without the use of paper strips. Hard wax is used to remove small sections of hair such as the eyebrows, upper lip, underarms etc.

Hard wax causes no damage to the skin while soft wax can really pull the skin and cause itching.

Suitability

Similar to the soft wax, this method is also not suited for sensitive skin types. This method is, however, most suitable for the normal skin type.

Fruit Wax

If ripping out hair sounds painful and dreadful but waxing is the only way for you, fruit wax is what you might be looking for. Enriched with fruit extracts and antioxidants it is gentle on the skin, does not pull it but removes the hair effectively. Though due to these properties it is on the expensive side, it is a far more gentle method than normal wax.

Suitability

Due to its gentle and nourishing properties fruit wax is especially ideal for sensitive skin. It removes the hair without irritating the skin.

Sugar Wax

Also known as sugaring, sugar wax is made up of sugar, lemon, and water. Much like fruit wax, it does not irritate the skin and gently removes the hair. Though it is slightly messy, it is a completely natural product. It only sticks to the hair follicles and does not stick to the skin at all thus making it more painless as compared to other waxing methods.

Suitability

It is most suitable for oily to normal skin. It can also be used for sensitive skin as it does not pull the skin and being natural does not cause rashes from unknown substances.

Chocolate Wax

Chocolate, commonly recognized as a yummy delicacy has also been introduced in the world of waxing for the number of benefits it gives, from making the skin look fresh to rejuvenation. Chocolate waxing gives bouncy, smooth and younger looking skin. It contains oils which provide moisture to the skin, giving it a glow. It removes the tiniest of hair and the stubborn tan as well. Chocolate wax can be found as- dark and white chocolate wax(Rica wax). Both the dark and white chocolate wax have more or less the same features but the white chocolate wax is slightly more expensive.

Suitability

Chocolate wax is suitable for all skin types and is less painful than normal wax. The white chocolate wax is slightly less painful than the dark chocolate wax. Chocolate wax can even be used for sensitive skin types.

Rica Wax

Rica wax also is known as white chocolate wax is a natural wax from Italy. It uses vegetable oils as bases combined with glyceryl rosinate to give a less painful hair removal. It does not need to be heated as long as the normal wax and in some cases requires no heating at all. It is far more beneficial as compared to normal wax. It does not cause redness, irritation, or itchiness due to its nourishing properties. It is, however, more expensive.

Suitability

As discussed under chocolate wax, Rica wax is also suitable for all skin types. Though it is costlier, it also guarantees no rashes, itchiness or coarse hair while also nourishing the skin.

Best Suited Waxing Method

Rica wax is the best waxing method to go for. Though it is expensive it is far better for the skin than other methods of waxing. It ensures no irritation, less hair growth, soft hair and to some extent less pain.

Though if you are looking for a slightly less expensive waxing method, dark chocolate wax can also be the go-to solution. It has more or less similar properties to Rica wax but is on the less expensive side while taking care of the skin. Also keeping in mind that both these waxing methods keep in mind all skin types including the sensitive skin, these are ideal for safe and gentle hair removal.

Diet vs Exercise Which is Better for Weight loss?

Diet vs Exercise Which is Better for Weight loss?

Diet

A diet is explained as the food consumed by any living being. It is often also defined as the specific consumption of food for health or weight-loss purposes. There are many types of diets that focus on providing the body with the required nutrients while also losing weight.

Each body has different requirements and it might require a diet that might not suit everybody. Thus it is important to find a diet that is effective for you.

A diet is a very important part of weight loss and must be followed diligently to achieve results.

Healthy eating would not only help in losing weight but will also prevent diseases such as diabetes etc.

Pros of a Diet

Diets if followed in a correct and healthy way would not only help lose weight but also give you a healthier lifestyle. Here are some of the advantages of dieting

  1. It helps in weight-loss
  2. Prevents and controls diseases
  3. Cleanses the body of toxins
  4. A healthy diet is proven to elevate the mood
  5. Gives stronger teeth and bones

Cons of a Diet

While dieting might incorporate a healthy lifestyle, a badly followed diet might lead you to the opposite end of that idea. It is good to follow a diet and keep your body healthy but following an improper and unhealthy diet, intentionally or unintentionally, might lead to some serious problems.

  1. Crash diets can result in weight fluctuations
  2. High-protein diets can lead to liver failure
  3. There can be muscle loss without any exercise
  4. Low-calorie diets lead to slow metabolism
  5. Can cause extreme hunger

NOTE: The above-mentioned disadvantages of dieting are based on different kinds of diets. There are many diets that have more advantages than disadvantages and are healthier. Thus it is necessary to find a diet plan which will consider your daily requirements and not simply weight loss.

Exercise

Exercising helps in burning off calories but it proves hard to actually lose weight. This could be because exercising makes you more hungry and you end up eating more than you actually burn.

Exercise however when done the right way with a good diet plan can help lose weight. It also should be kept in mind that exercising is not only about weight loss but also a healthier lifestyle.

Exercise can help in maintaining weight loss, increase metabolism and make the body fit and active.

Pros of Exercising

Much like dieting when done the right way, exercising can lead to major weight-loss and more active life.

  1. Weight-loss
  2. A more active life
  3. Makes you happier
  4. Good for muscles and bones
  5. Keeps diseases at bay
  6. Helps improving memory

Cons of Exercising

The right amount of anything is good for the body but the wrong amount is equally destructive. While shedding some weight might be necessary but remember not to overdo the workout, it will cause more damage than help you.

  1. Heavy exercise destroys diets as it gives food cravings
  2. It can be associated with body perception disorders.
  3. Can cause diabetes (due to the food cravings mentioned above)
  4. It can eventually damage muscles and joints

Diet vs Exercise: Which is Better?

It is a known fact that dieting is more sought after as compared to exercising, one of the reasons is how easily it can be incorporated into our daily life while time has to be taken out to exercise.

In an ideal situation, you should exercise and diet together and make them a daily habit, not only to lose weight but also for a healthier lifestyle.

Both dieting and exercising should go hand in hand for the most effective weight-loss regime. That being said, if it came to choosing the better option out of the two the most important thing for weight-loss is dieting.

Even without exercising an appropriate diet can help you lose weight, slowly but consistently. But if you keep eating unhealthy food, despite exercising you might find yourself unable to lose weight.

There are many disadvantages and health risks due to unhealthy and incorrect diets but a proper, well-planned diet might be all you need to shed some kgs.
