While the Lipstick Revolution is about feminism and about fighting for women rights , what we really need to pay close attention  when lipsticks are concerned are the ingredients used for the heath and safety of women around the world .

The four things about lipsticks you ought to know are –
1. Women apply lipstick or lip gloss frequently almost ingesting as much as 87 milligrams of product per day. As such it becomes mandatory to check labels for harmful chemicals.
2. Once considered a rumour that some lipsticks contain lead , it turned out to be true when the FDA tested hundreds of lipsticks following an alert issued by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics . Lead mainly affects the nervous system and harms the hormonal system.

When I came across Himalayan Products at an event last month , I immediately made it a point to share their story on the blog so I could provide you with some relevant information regarding cheese. Do you know that processed cheese is not the same as real cheese ? Actually, it cannot be even termed as real food but rather a means to mass produce low quality products at cheap rates. With primary ingredients being vegetable oils, sugar, preservatives, colours, excess sodium etc. , it can not be legally labeled as cheese in most countries but is instead tagged as “cheese food”,”cheese spread” or “cheese product” . Real cheese on the other hand contains calcium , zinc, Vitamin D and Vitamin K2 and is also a source of probiotic which is beneficial for the gut . In simple terms, Artisanal cheese is MADE by adding rennet to milk and ageing it over a period of time while Processed cheese is MANUFACTURED using dairy and non-dairy by-products like oils and sugars . Another very interesting fact is that not every kind of cheese is vegetarian .

While it is not a secret that peanut butter is a huge hit amongst children and growing teens , I do notice the weight conscious lot putting peanut butter under huge scrutiny when it comes to calorie counts. The calorie count is a separate matter as it depends entirely on your meals and exercise but peanut butters can prove to be quite beneficial if you are looking  to boost your system with some rich potent nutrients. Peanut Butter contains good fats that help lower cholesterol and help prevent heart disease. They also contain antioxidants and Vitamin E that makes it excellent for the skin. They are a rich source of protein and potassium helping lower the risks of blood pressure and aiding in building muscles and healthy bones.

The Skin Pantry Review.

After suffering from recurrent skin rashes and hormonal disruptions for the last few years , I finally decided six months ago to delve a little deeper into my life and get a hang of what I was missing out on or what I was not doing right. The insights came pouring in all suggestive of a lifestyle that involves healthy food, physical activity , stress management (  I am talking about managing stress as it’s impossible to be stress free completely today ) and practising humility and kindness. However, one of the most common underlying reasons that came to me as a revelation was that I never really paid much attention to the amount of toxins the skin had been soaking up for years . To be honest , I had come across a few articles a couple of years ago that talked about toxins in beauty and skin products but it was six months ago that I realised the the skin absorbs a major amount of these toxins .

Dairy free , Vegan , Sugar Free and Gluten Free Nut Milks

One of the most important things I learnt last year was that a healthy mind can reside only in a healthy body. After having put on weight and constantly  battling a weak immune system , I made it a point to make a few lifestyle changes. I was not looking for a massive change overnight or going on a strict diet but more towards seeking a few alternatives that could result in an overall betterment. One of the first steps was to go dairy free and sugar free. I consume milk and sugar only with tea everyday so I switched dairy milk with nut milk and sugar with jaggery or just  avoiding sugar altogether . I have not mastered  self control yet so once in a while I do indulge in dairy and sugar products but avoiding them everyday and making the switch has yielded me some great results.
