OneLife 7 Berry Antox Nutritional Supplement

OneLife 7 Berry Antox Nutritional Supplement product review

Nutritional supplements are a safe way to add what is deficient in your diet to your body. OneLife 7 berry antox is a blend of seven powerful berry extracts highly rich in antioxidants to improve immunity and promote healthy skin. Antioxidants are important to counteract the free radicals generated in our body.

OneLife 7 Berry Antox Nutritional Supplement Product Review

Price : Rs 2,299 for 90 gms with 30 sachets

Ingredients : Maltodextrin, proprietary blend of Acai, blueberry, black currant, blackberry, cranberry, raspberry, strawberry extracts

My Experience

The OneLife 7 Berry Antox box comes with 30 sachets of 3gms each. Everyday it is advised to take one sachet either with water or on its own. As you can see, the supplement comes in a purple colored powdered form which readily dissolves in water or can be incorporated into shakes and smoothies.

OneLife 7 Berry Antox Nutritional Supplement product review

I am not really a fan of its taste. It is a little tangy and leaves an after taste but then you just have to gulp it down and you can follow up with plain water and you are good to go. In case, you add it to smoothies or shakes, it is not going to alter the taste at all so you are fine there as well.

The OneLife 7 Berry Antox is a blend of seven powerful antioxidant rich fruits belonging to the berry family – acai, blueberry, blackberry, black currant, cranberry, raspberry and strawberry. As we all are already aware, blueberry and acai berry have been tagged as super foods in the recent years. The berry family is rich in anti-oxidants and anti-ageing properties, not to mention their health benefits.

OneLife 7 Berry Antox Nutritional Supplement product review

Warning : Always remember not to take any nutritional supplement when you are taking other medications. It might react or body might not accept so many things at once which will waste your money and supplement.

OneLife 7 Berry Antox aims to improve skin texture, promote healthy skin and stop ageing. It also aims to boost immunity and improve digestion. Having taken supplements for almost 20 days, I can not claim for any immunity boost or other health benefits. However, I can definitely say that I did see an improvement in my skin. It was glowing and smooth and even my spouse commented on it. So, I am taking that as a positive sign.

OneLife 7 Berry Antox Nutritional Supplement product review

I do have one reservation about the product – maltodextrin is listed as the primary ingredient. Maltodextrin is a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) food additive according to U.S. FDA. It is used to release instant energy and is easy to digest. Taken in less quantities, it does not harm the body. However, if you eat too many processed foods, your intake of maltodextrin is higher. It has high glycemic index and consuming it in higher quantities can lead to diabetes or weight gain.

Before going ahead, please remember that nutritional supplements do not do anything for your body if your lifestyle is not aligned to healthy living. So, if you want the supplements to work, you shall have to make changes in your diet and daily routine. No nutritional supplement can cure or prevent any disease.

Till then, ciao!

How to Add Alexa to Your Smart Mirror

A smart mirror with an Amazon Echo reflected. Josh Hendrickson

If you built a smart mirror, you already have handy access to calendars, weather, and news. But you can do more than that! The Magic Mirror software lets you add modules for extra features, like Alexa for voice control.

Other developers create these modules. The options vary from the useful, like Alexa or presence detection (through a camera or Passive Infrared sensor), to the entertaining, like snowflakes and Spotify playback info.

We recommend mmm-awesome-alexa as it appears to be well maintained by an active developer, although there are other Alexa modules for the Magic Mirror software.

If you would prefer to install Google Assistant, Google offers a complete tutorial for installing Assistant on a Raspberry Pi, including steps, images, and download links. While a few Magic Mirror modules for Google Assistant exist, our investigation revealed the modules to be problematic, often crashing or covering the mirror information. If you want the most straightforward setup, we recommend adding the Google AIY kit and using its specific tutorial.

To install most modules, you’ll go through some basic steps:

  1. Download the module code from GitHub
  2. Configure module-specific options
  3. Add the module to the mirror configuration

Depending on the module, steps two and three may be more or less involved. Setting up Alexa requires more configuration than adding snowflakes, for instance. Additionally, this particular Alexa module requires installing some additional software (dependencies) before downloading the module.

The Materials You’ll Need

Google

This guide assumes you’ve already created a Smart Mirror. If you haven’t yet, start there but keep in mind the extra materials listed here in your costs and space considerations.

  • Completed Smart Mirror
  • Microphone
  • Speaker

For the microphone and speaker, we recommend the original Google AIY Voice Kit. At $16, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a cheaper microphone and speaker combination. You don’t necessarily need to use the included cardboard box; it may be more effective to leave the components out and run the microphone and speaker outside the mirror.

7 Common Travel Photography Mistakes (and How to Avoid Them)

Woman taking photos of a hilly landscape.

Every budding photographer makes a blunder here and there. Here are seven common travel photography mistakes you should avoid.

Traveling to a new place is one of the most exciting ways to push yourself and your photography. You can go on dedicated photo trips or just bring your camera along on your vacations. Travel, however, is expensive so, if you’re planning to take photos, you should put a bit of thought into it. You don’t want to spend a lot of money on a trip and not have any images you’re proud to show for it. Let’s look at some of the most common travel photography mistakes and, more importantly, how you can avoid them.

Not Doing Your Research Before Your Trip

Boys playing in a tide pool.
Harry Guinness

The secret to natural, impromptu travel photos is lots of planning. Almost every great travel shot starts at home. You can’t expect to stumble on the most amazing things wandering around a new city for the first time.

Since time and money are often the biggest limitations on travel photography, it’s worth it to put in a few hours of research before you go. Work out what kind of shots you want to get, where you can get them, what time will work best, and when you’ll have the opportunity. If you can, develop a shot list. That way, you’re ready to start shooting as soon as you arrive.

And, if you do stumble on an incredible situation as you wander, so much the better. But you’ll also have a few sure shots in the can.

Shooting the Same Photos as Everyone Else

Similar photos of the Eiffel Tower.
Hey, look at all these really different photos of the Eiffel Tower!

When you research a trip, you’ll see the kind of photos most people are taking of that location. You’ll find out what the famous landmarks are and how they’re being shot.

And then you can do something different.

There’s nothing wrong with shooting the same thing as everyone else, but there’s little point in taking a photo that’s available from 100 photographers on stock photo sites. Instead, see what’s been done and try to do something different. You can work from a different angle, use a different composition, or shoot something else entirely. Force yourself to be more creative.

Starting Too Late (or Stopping Too Early)

Harry Guinness

Great photography happens at unsociable hours. The best times for travel photography are the hours around sunrise and sunset. Nighttime brings interesting changes to a place that a lot of people don’t capture because they’re in bed or a bar.

Aukey’s New 30-Watt USB-C PD Brick Is a Must-Have for Your Gadget Bag

Aukey's 30-watt USB-C PD charger
Cameron Summerson

If you’re in the market for a nice little charger to toss in your bag for on-the-go use, Aukey’s new dual-port, 30-watt USB-C PD charger should at least make your shortlist.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s not some game-changing device that’s going to enhance the way you juice up your devices in a life-altering way. It’s just a useful, compact charger with a lot of oomph for its size.

It features a pair of ports on the back: a 30-watt USB-C port with Power Delivery, and a standard 5-volt, 2.4-amp USB-A port. The maximum output is 30 watts if you use the USB-C port by itself. This is slower than most stand-alone chargers that ship with power-hungry devices like laptops, but it gets the job done (albeit, a bit slower).

How much slower, you ask? I did a bit of real-world-comparison testing to find out. First, I compared the Aukey charger with the stock charger from my Pixelbook (which is rated at 45 watts) on both the Pixelbook and the Pixel 3a. I also compared the Aukey to the Pixel 3a’s stock charger on just the 3a (since the 3a’s charger doesn’t put out enough power to charge the Pixelbook without putting it in sleep mode).

I tested the Pixelbook at 15% and 25% remaining battery on the stock and Aukey chargers, with the device at 50% brightness. Here are the results:

Spreadsheet comparing Pixelbook charging times with the stock charger and Aukey USB-C charger.

The charging times weren’t much different. The 45-watt Pixelbook charger juiced the laptop about half an hour faster than the 30-watt Aukey. Given the Aukey’s smaller, more portable size (and more versatile use), this is a worthwhile trade-off. I keep the stock charger plugged up at my desk and the Aukey in my bag.

I also tested the Pixel 3a at 25% with the stock, Pixelbook, and Aukey chargers (using the USB-C port on the Aukey):

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream for Elbows, Hands and Knees

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream for Elbows, Hands and Knees

I know I have been sporadic on the blog for the past few years now. Not to give any excuse but daily routine and life in general has been very chaotic and there is a serious lack of discipline. Hopefully, it settles down this time. Anyways, talking about today’s product, I came across Organic Riot less than a month back and they have been kind enough to send out their products. So, let me talk about Organic Riot Spotlight Cream first.

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream – Special Care for your Elbows, Hands and Knees

Price : Rs 1,120 for 50 gms
Availability : Online Website

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream Ingredients

As you can see, it has both mango and kokum butter with coconut oil which makes it extremely rich. I love its ingredients list and if you would like to know what each ingredient is specifically used for, please visit their website on the above link. They have a very detailed information on each ingredient and how it is helpful for our skin.

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream for Elbows, Hands and Knees, organic riot spotlight serum ingredients

My Review

First things first. I really like their aesthetics. Their other serum which is called Dazzle also comes in the same look but in red. Organic Riot Spotlight cream comes in a tube with a fliptop cap which is easy to carry. The cream is brown in color and smells of vanilla bean which I absolutely love. The texture of the cream is medium thick and spreads easily.

The highlight of Organic Riot Spotlight is that it is a treatment for skin which gets extremely dry, does not get easily cleaned and thickens over time like our elbows and knees, especially. This was the major reason I tried out this cream. My elbows are darker and no matter which body butter I use, nothing seems to help smoothen the area.

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream for Elbows, Hands and Knees
The cream does get dried up around the flip top if you do not clean it properly!

So, did the Organic Riot spotlight cream help? Well, yes! Given that the quantity is only 50gms, I just tried out this cream on my elbows and hands. It definitely smoothened my elbow skin and it is more moisturized now and the area is relatively less rough. Repeated application of this cream has helped in keeping my elbows smoother even on days when I would not apply it. For those interested, my elbows have not lightened yet.

But, my hands is a different story altogether. The skin near my fingers have started to crack badly for a few years now whenever I start doing dusting or wash utensils and the cracks would not go away for months even after continuous moisturizing and other treatments. Organic riot spotlight keeps my hands well-moisturized though it did not make any difference to the cracks. I think it requires more specialized treatment.

Organic Riot Spotlight Cream for Elbows, Hands and Knees
On How to Use?

One thing which I have to mention here is that this product is definitely easy to carry but is not travel-friendly. No, the tube or fliptop does not leak but the product melts in high temperatures. So, I stored the tube in fridge. Keeping it in my drawer was also making it a little runny and I liked the feel of cool cream in this hot weather. I do not think it a problem, just a minor inconvenience which goes away in colder areas and climate.

Whenever I apply it, my hands smell of vanilla but the fragrance is not strong. I enjoy it. I like to keep applying it especially when I am working on the laptop as constant typing dries out the hands. Yes, it is an expensive product given that it would last you at most a month. It does what it says so that’s good.  Overall, I enjoyed using the organic riot spotlight cream.

Do you also suffer from dry hands or dark and thick elbows?

What do you do? Which product works for you? Do you have any recommendations for my cracked hands? Share your tips and tricks in the comments section below on how you keep your elbows and knees moisturized and soft.

See you again! Au Revoir. Hasta Luego.

Setup of Google Chromecast TV – The Handyguys

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BijTvklBPxE?feature=oembed&w=500&h=281]

In this video, Handyguys Brian and Paul teach viewers how to setup their Chromecast TV. Previously, The Handyguys unboxed a Chromecast. The Chromecast box includes a USB and an outlet on the Chromecast itself for an HDMI. This video is part of a larger series of unboxing, setup, and tutorial for the Google Home, Chromecast, Chromecast Audio, and Chromecast Ultra.

Chromecast TV Setup

The Handyguys plugged the Chromecast TV into a small television in the Handyguys studio using a power chord and HDMI input. Once you change the input on your TV to reflect the Chromecast, the application will guide you through a series of steps to setup the Chromecast. If you have already downloaded the Google Home application and have setup previous devices on your home wifi network, the application may notify you to start setup right when you plug in the Chromecast.

Application Setup

The application will then direct you to find the TV that your Chromecast is associated with. You can then give the Chromecast a name that reflects where it is located (Basement, Studio, Etc). Next, connect the Chromecast TV to wifi. If you have setup previous devices, the Chromecast may just retrieve the wifi password from your smart phone device. Once connected, the Chromecast will update automatically and ask to link the device to your Google account.

In this video, Handyguys Brian and Paul cast a YouTube video from their channel to the TV that is associated with the Chromecast device. They cast the video with fairly easily and simply.

In the next videos, the Handyguys will continue to explore and explain the Google Home and Chromecast devices. These devices also tend to be compatible with one another and have fairly easy cross over. Stay tuned for more tips and tutorials on the Google Home and Chromecast device series.

To use Mountain Flower Nitrogen Boost Fish Food, all you need is water and a container with your fertilizer. Simply add the desired amount of water to your container, add the Nitrogen Boost Fish Food and mix thoroughly. This product is water soluble and can be used immediately.
A 1-gallon packet will make 1 gallon of strong tea or 2 gallons of diluted tea. we also offer a 5 gallon packet that will make 5 gallons of strong tea or 10 gallons diluted.

How to Speed Up Your Internet Connection

Man's hands holding a tablet showing buffering video.
Tero Vesalainen/Shutterstock.com

Internet connections could always be faster. Whether your downloads are crawling, streaming feels like a slideshow, or you just want to maximize your speeds, here’s how you can accelerate that connection.

Depending on your Internet Service Provider (ISP), you can often get faster speeds by calling them (or visiting their website) and upgrading to a more expensive plan. Your monthly bill will go up, but so will your speed. Before you do that, however, here are some tips that can speed up your connection for free.

Optimize Your Wi-Fi and Local Network

Many issues with local networks, particularly those using Wi-Fi, are to blame for poor Internet speeds. Before looking at your Internet connection, it’s worth making sure your local network is up to par.

The most basic fix for poor network performance is to turn off your router (and modem, if it’s separate), count to ten, and then turn it back on again. This is called “power-cycling” your router, and it can often speed things up.

Choosing a Wi-Fi Channel in a a basic router setup menu.

If you use Wi-Fi instead of wired Ethernet, it’s a good idea to minimize interference from nearby networks, as these can cause speed dips and network drop-outs. If you see a lot of other networks on your devices when connecting to your home Wi-Fi, you’ll likely benefit from picking a Wi-Fi channel that offers the least interference.

If you have a modern router that supports the 5 GHz band, you should use it wherever possible. Using the 5 GHz band results in faster speeds and less interference. If you have an 802.11ac compatible, dual-band router, you will see two networks appear when connecting. You can name them accordingly under your router setup. Most routers have instructions for accessing this interface printed on the side of the device.

Router menu with both 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands check marked.

While you’re logged in, it’s worth downloading and installing any new firmware that’s available for your router. Where to find this differs based on the manufacturer and model you’re using, so look for “Software Update” or something similar.

How to Create and Manage a Table of Contents in Microsoft Word

word logo

Using a table of contents in your document makes it easier for the reader to navigate. You can generate a table of contents in Word from the headings used in your document. Here’s how to do it.

Add a Table of Contents

Regardless of the size of your document, using a table of contents can direct the reader to exactly where they need to be. In addition to making the document more reader-friendly, a table of contents also makes it easier for the author to go back and add or remove content if necessary.

By default, Word generates a table of contents using the first three built-in heading styles (Heading 1, Heading 2, and Heading 3). To apply heading styles, select the particular style from the “Home” tab. If you’re not happy with the types of heading styles available, you can change the default heading style.

Apply heading styles

You can manage this in two different ways. You can either apply the heading styles to each section after you’ve finished the document, or you can add them as you go.

Once you’ve applied your heading styles, it’s time to insert your table of contents.  The first thing you need to do is put the cursor where you want the table of contents to appear. Once ready, head over to the “References” tab and select “Table of Contents.”

Select table of contents option in references tab

A drop-down menu will appear. Here, you can choose between the three different built-in tables.

4 Beginner’s Tips Before You Start to Exercise

running, workout, exercising, how to start exercising, how to start running
Image Courtesy : Photo by Amine M’Siouri from Pexels

Working out regularly is usually high on new year resolution lists people fail to achieve. For me, it just goes back on the list every year and then I manage to fall off the wagon every single time. Here are my 4 beginner’s tips before you start to exercise on a daily basis.

I am not an athlete by nature or have ever been involved in even medium physical activity so whenever I start exercising, I am a beginner. My physical fitness journey is pretty much limited to a yoga class, a few zumba classes and six days trial sessions at a gym.

Just like healthy living, exercise is a part of your daily routine and not just a fad to come and go.

Now that I am in my 30’s and have been through my fair share of health problems, I strongly believe in improving stamina and immunity as a motivation for beginners instead of the usual weight loss goals. In my journey towards physical fitness, I have learned the importance of these following things and would like to share a few key points to note before you start to exercise regularly.

4 Beginner’s Tips Before You Start to Exercise

Where would you like to exercise?

The first question for you to decide is where would you like to start exercising. You would like to go to a gym, take up an activity, go to a walk in the park or start exercising at home. Another factor here would be the physical activity level you are already used to in your life and your current stamina.

If you have already been a runner, it is natural to take up running again. If you like sports, it is a good start to join a team of the like-minded. So, decide what would you like to do or start with at least for the next two months and how frequently can you accommodate the activity into your daily routine.

Get the right Workout Gear

Often an underestimated factor, wearing the right clothes and accessories is extremely important in determining the success of your fitness routine. You would need a separate wardrobe right from sports bra to pair of socks and shoes. The reason is these clothes are made of lycra and polyester to make sure sweat does not cling to your body.

They allows your skin to breathe and sweat more as you continue your exercises. They also allow flexibility in movements during your workouts. Investing in the right clothes is a huge motivation. Even when you are planning to workout at home, you must make sure to change into your workout gear.

Also, allow for knee caps, elbow caps, yoga mats and other accessories which make workout easier and comfortable and prevent injuries. Never ever workout with bare feet unless you are doing yoga which must be done on a yoga mat.

Tailor your Daily Routine to fit in the Exercise

What is the best time for your workout? Some like it in the mornings and others can not make times till late nights. Blend the workout routine seamlessly into your daily routine so that you do not feel the stress to make time for it. Sometimes, you do have to make a conscious effort to make out time for yourself.

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance helps here. Also, improving your bedtime habits would be immensely helpful in the long run for a healthy lifestyle. Go to sleep and get up at the same time everyday to create a routine. Try to workout at the same time everyday. If sometimes it is just not possible, make time for it later or earlier in the day.

If you like to exercise in the mornings, make sure you are out of bed an hour before your exercise schedule. Change into your workout gear and have pre-workout snacks. Boiled egg whites, half a banana, few nuts and dates are all great hands-on options.

If you decide to exercise in the evenings, make sure to have your pre-workout snacks on time and not over-indulge in evening snacking, reach the gym at least fifteen minutes before your workout and change into your workout gear. Plan for the days when you will not be able to get out of the office on time.

If you are planning to exercise at home, create a separate workout room or space where no one would disturb you. The space should be well-ventilated and airy. Keep your yoga mat, exercising accessories, bottle of water and a napkin nearby.

Ask a Friend to Join In or Join a Group who will Monitor Your Goals

Last year there were too  many walk-a-thon challenges happening all around. Those were motivations enough for me and my friends to take regular evening walks. Once they got over, our daily walks after dinner went for a toss. Then, we decided to go for swimming or gym sessions together or play badminton. We were successful for some days and again everything derailed. Finally, we did make it to the trial sessions at the gym together.

It is always great to have someone join in with you when you start to exercise as both a motivation and control factor. Also, your companion should be one who can encourage you not to be lazy instead of the other way around. Create small and attainable fitness goals and complement it with the right diet. Eating well is an important part of your fitness journey.

These are a few points which I learned in my rather short fitness journey. Before you start to exercise, make sure you start right to sustain the routine and make it a part of your lifestyle. Increased stamina and resilience will keep your motivation high and help you push yourself further. Always remember to push yourself just enough and not hurt your body in the process. Good luck with your fitness journey.

To use Mountain Flower Nitrogen Boost Fish Food, all you need is water and a container with your fertilizer. Simply add the desired amount of water to your container, add the Nitrogen Boost Fish Food and mix thoroughly. This product is water soluble and can be used immediately.
A 1-gallon packet will make 1 gallon of strong tea or 2 gallons of diluted tea. we also offer a 5 gallon packet that will make 5 gallons of strong tea or 10 gallons diluted.

Improve your Skin Tone with Glutathione

glutathione, glutone 1000 with escor z

Did you know that your body and diet is the answer to your skin woes? Yes, the answer lies in the latest antioxidant on the block – glutathione. This antioxidant has not yet become very popular like vitamin E or omega 3 or whey protein but this is the antioxidant which is the answer to all your skin problems. ClickOnCare is offering Glutone 1000 to supplement the decreasing glutathione levels in the body as we age.

Skin Lightening Combo Glutone 1000 with Escor Z

Before proceeding, I would like to make a disclaimer. We strictly do not promote the concept of fairer skin. Skin in any color is beautiful and our only effort is to keep it at its best. Glutathione is a natural antioxidant occurring in our bodies which helps with uneven skin tone and fighting sun damage. An oral supplement of the same antioxidant gives faster results and younger looking skin.

Ingredients

Glutone 1000, Glutathione, N-Acetylcysteine& Vitamin C Effervescent Tablets contains world’s best Glutathione, “SETRIA Glutathione”

How is Glutathione useful for our body?

It is interesting to note that Glutathione is one of the most important antioxidant of the body. and other metabolic and biochemical reactions in the body required for the smooth functioning of all the organs especially the immune system.

Another major benefit of this antioxidant is its ability to neutralize free radicals and other reactive oxygen species (ROS) which get generated as the by products of the chemical reactions taking place in the body. These free radicals and ROS have the ability to attach themselves to the cells and DNA in our bodies altering the chemical structure of our bodies and affecting the functioning of our organs.

Also Read : How free radicals and antioxidants affect our bodies?

When the body is at its healthiest, glutathione and other antioxidants are responsible to fight these free radicals and ROS. Glutathione is most effective in fighting the oxidative damage to the skin. However, since the antioxidant is great at fighting the oxidative damage, it helps preventing wrinkles and has anti-aging effects on the body. Bright skin is just a natural side effect when taken in large doses.

Melanin formation in mammals consists of eumelanin (darker pigment) and pheomelanin (lighter pigment). Glutathione encourages the formation of pheomelanin as opposed to eumelanin thereby helping in controlling hyperpigmentation. The antioxidant also has the ability to protect the skin from UV rays and other environmental damage and even the damage caused by mental stress.

glutathione, glutone 1000 with escor z

How does Glutone 1000 with Escor Z work?

Glutone 1000 has N-Acetyl Cysteine which synthesizes glutathione in the body. One tablet of Glutone 1000 must be dissolved in a glass of water along with one tablet of Escor Z. Escor Z is vitamin C supplement which is essential to ensure the maximum absorption of glutathione formed in the body. A course of this supplement for 3-4 months is advised for improved stamina, boosting immunity and healthy skin.

Glutathione can also be consumed from turmeric or sulphur-rich foods like green leafy vegetables and onions. Drinking vitamin C on a daily basis also helps increasing glutathione levels in the body. Eating nuts, cottage cheese, brown rice, chicken, beef and fish helps increase selenium levels in the body which is necessary to synthesize glutathione. However, orally consuming the antioxidant is the best way to improve its concentration in the body.

How to Consume Glutone 1000?

  1. Add  1 tablet of glutone 1000 and 1 tablet of Escor Z in a glass of water and wait for 2 min for them to completely dissolve and then can be consumed like any liquid drink.
  2. It is advised to consume daily in the morning, empty stomach.

Benefits

  • It shows faster results
  • Makes skin healthy & glowing
  • Tasty fizzy health drink
  • No side effects
  • Lightens skin by reducing melanin pigment
Price : Rs 2,756 for 1 box containing 15 tablets of Glutone and 20 tablets of Vitamin C
Availability : Online Website

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum for Even Skin-Tone

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum for Even Skin-Tone

I received this Organic Riot dazzle serum along with their spotlight cream. If you have followed the rantings on my blog, you would know how I never like any moisturizer ever and I am always on the lookout for a new one before I even finish the old. Please do share if you have a good recommendation for a moisturizer. Surprisingly, this time I do have a couple of very inexpensive recommendations in terms of moisturizers for dry skin.

Anyways, getting back to the product at hand, it is again a completely organic moisturizer which claims to control your hyper-pigmentation. Another thing interesting about the brand is that their packaging is made of recycled paper. Is that not impressive? Before getting into details, organic riot dazzle serum is another winner and I am definitely interested in other products they come up with.

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum for Even Skin-Tone

Price : Rs 1,490 for 50ml
Availability : Online Website

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum Ingredients

It is interesting to note that it has kiwi seed, avocado and jojoba oils along with minor amounts of raspberry seed and tomato seed oil. I would love to get a blend of facial oil with these ingredients instead of a creme.

My Review – Organic Riot Dazzle Serum

Again, the same aesthetics. Organic Riot dazzle serum comes in a pump tube which delivers just a bit of the product. So, no product wastage there. Contrary to the expectation of a fluid, it is a creme serum which disappointed me a bit. I like my serums as liquid or oils. The texture of the serum is light and creamy and spreads easily. You need just one pump for both face and neck. May be you can make do with less as well depending on skin condition and climate.

I found organic riot dazzle serum tube perfectly easy to use and to travel with or carry around. I do store it in the refrigerator as well after my experience with the spotlight cream though this does not become liquid-y. However, being refrigerated allows only just enough product to be pumped out and it feels good to apply the cold product in hot weather.

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum for Even Skin-Tone

Have you ever observed that cold products usually give a very fine and even finish to the skin and also give a matted look?

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum claims to give an even toned complexion and take care of your hyper-pigmentation. I have been using this serum exclusively for almost a month now. It gives a very even and dewy finish, leaves the skin glowing and pink even when you are not using this diligently. It definitely needs to be followed up with a moisturizer for mature skin or dry skin but the brand also suggests the same.

The product is light on the skin and does not clog the pores. I did not face any blackheads issue as well while using this. There were no dry skin patches either even though I would not use a follow up moisturizer. Regarding hyper-pigmentation, I am not sure I have observed any difference. My major peeve is my darker forehead but I do not think the serum has removed the tanning on it or reduced the discoloration but I can really not be sure.

Organic Riot Dazzle Serum for Even Skin-Tone

One issue which I did notice with organic riot dazzle serum is it makes me sweat after applying it for almost 15-20 minutes before settling down. I think it is also because of the climate and it should not respond in the similar way in colder months. But, yes, it is an inconvenience especially if you are planning to put on makeup, sunscreen or even moisturizer on it. Sitting in an air-conditioned place helps with the sweat.

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised with this product. It is expensive though it will last for more than a month so if it fits your budget, I would definitely urge you to give it a try. According to me, it is a good moisturizer which you can layer over all your other treatment serums or combine with vitamin C or hyaluronic acid serum. I like to use it in the night as well and it has been good to my skin thanks to its exotic ingredients.

Have you been having trouble with finding the perfect moisturizer?

What is your favorite moisturizer? Do you like to layer it with other products? Do you like to use treatment serums like vitamin C or hyaluronic acid or retinoids, for examples? I have really like vitamin C serums as they help control the oil on the skin. Do tell me how you control the oil on your skin and make your skin look matte and dewy?

Till then, Swati.

Why and How to Segregate Waste at Home?

segregate waste at home, recycle plastic, reuse, garbage, trash
Image Courtesy : Photo by Lisa Fotios from Pexels

For the past few months, I have developed this habit of segregating trash at home. It has not yet become a common habit in India yet but do you know how much you can help the waste pickers and the environment by doing this simple task at home itself? So, let me talk about why and how to segregate waste at home?

Eco-conscious is the new buzz word. Sadly, we are living in India where we need to run campaigns like ‘Swacch Bharat’ which is touted to be wildly successful. And, yet we are not used to segregating our trash even after so much awareness and education earning high salaries and living in cosmopolitans and metropolitan cities.

Why should we segregate waste at home?

Our trash has lot of things from the wet green waste to the unhygienic sanitary and medical waste. Sometimes, we irresponsibly throw in the e-waste and batteries as well. When we do not segregate our waste, the task falls upon the waste pickers.

Did you know that the waste pickers are exposed to an abundance of health hazards because we are not used to segregate waste at home?

Exposure to the sanitary waste exposes them to loads of bacteria and other insects which get attracted to them. When we dispose of even small batteries, the chemicals leak out of them. When waste pickers segregate the waste, they get exposed to these chemicals like cadmium, chromium, mercury, et cetera. These toxic chemicals are also released into the environment causing environmental hazard.

Separating plastic, on the other hand, is a tedious task. Going through the land mines of waste and picking up every small piece of plastic is nearly inhumane. And, finally, at least a little percentage of the plastic ends up getting burned and releasing toxic fumes into the environment.

Helping the waste pickers and environment on the other hand will reduce our personal carbon footprint and help pass down the habit to the future generations. You can also earn money by selling off all the recyclable waste segregated at home.

How to segregate waste at home?

It is common knowledge that we have three categories of waste – biodegradable or greens, recyclable which includes cartons, plastic and glass and rejected waste which includes sanitary and medical waste. Electronic waste (e-waste) comes under recyclable waste.

The greens form a major part of our trash and is mainly compost-able. The recyclable waste is the one which we can make money out of and feel good about by contributing our bit to the environment. This category includes everything from your plastics and cardboards and papers to batteries and metals.

So, here are some salient points which you should take care of while you segregate waste at home.

Clean all the plastics and pizza boxes before you segregate them

When you are separating your trash, whether you do it on a daily basis or monthly basis, always make sure there are no food particles or drink residues present in it. They attract insects and bugs and rodents which is not desirable anywhere, even in waste collection centers. Make sure they are clean and dry.

Also, make sure you separate the right kind of papers. The waxy feel ones and the newspapers all stay separate. Only plain papers and tissues make it to my compost. Did you know cardboards are also great for composting but only if they do not have tape around it or has a waxy coating. Your best bet is to recycle them.

Do not snip off corners of your grocery packets

Make it a habit to cut the packet along its edge so that you have no problem emptying its contents and also you do not have to snip off little pieces of plastic.

Anyone has a tendency to snip off the corner of a grocery packets like sugar, salt, et cetera before emptying off its contents or storing it. This is a huge problem especially since we do the same to our milk packets. The problem is these plastic snips are too small to be caught by a waste picker and can not be recycled so they end up burning in the landfills or pollute the water bodies.

Dispose off the e-waste responsibly

Did you know irresponsibly dumping the electronics in the trash results in chemicals like chromium, cadmium, mercury, et cetera getting released into the environment. The waste pickers end up inhaling a lot of these fumes as well which puts their health at high risk. Also, these electronics can be recycled for their parts which helps saving Earth’s resources on the whole. Dispose off your electronics including used up batteries with the specialized e-waste dealers.

Be careful with Glass

Anything which is glass should be handled carefully and try to make sure it is not broken when you are dumping it. The fused out bulbs, tubelights are also included in this category. Make sure your waste collector knows if anything is broken. Do not throw it in a pile of plastic waste. Keep it separate and try to sandpaper the sharp edges so it does not end up hurting someone.

Reduce the usage of plastic at home

This is pretty obvious but since you have taken your first step towards becoming eco-friendly, you might want to go a little further in your efforts. It is not easy to revamp the entire house. You can start with buying eco-friendly products from now on and slowly replace everything plastic in the house. It will take a year or two depending on your budget and amount of plastic in the house.

Use cane, steel or glass storage containers instead of plastics. Start from the kitchen. Stop ordering from restaurants which still use plastic. Many vendors and restaurants have switched to cardboards and paper bags. Also, carry a few extra bags whenever you step out of the house just in case you need to buy something or need extra carry bags.

By making sure to segregate waste at home, you are helping thousands of people save their own lives and health and not to mention the environment. It is not a difficult process to follow and it does not take too much of your time and space. Follow it for a week diligently and you will find yourself doing this on auto mode from the next time.

Also, you do not need plethora of bins to store your waste. Just buy a big drum and put three separate garbage bags around the circle. Use each for one for different waste and once you find it getting full, it is time to schedule your garbage pickup. There are many professional services also coming up these days who pick up your waste at your door step. Find and enroll for the one in your city. Happy recycling!

So, do you segregate waste at home?

Have you developed the habit of segregating your trash? Do you sell the recyclables regularly. Do you recycle them in your own home? What do you do?

Till then, Swathy.
