For some men, growing a beard is not easy and for others, it comes so fast that it is a challenge to keep up with it. But for those that sport the beard, taking good care of it is important; in fact, most beards need daily care or they go from a sexy look to a scruffy and unkempt look. You need to wash, trim and condition it to help keep it well-groomed. So, yes, beard maintenance is crucial if you plan to wear one.
I’ve done this specially for my beardy cousins (they grow it for style) & my hubby (being very occupied with his r&d shaves weekly once n so has a little beard on weekdays 😉)! I’ve come to know through them that there are few problems they face with the beard –
- Since beard hair is typically quite coarse, men often experience itchiness and even in-grown hairs on the delicate facial skin underneath.
- A full beard also makes it difficult to access the skin so common skin problems like dryness, acne or inflammation can be compounded.

Mascara is used to enhance, darken, thicken, lengthen and define the eyelashes. It is defelitely in my must-have-makeup-list! Eye 👁 makeup <kajal, mascara & eye shadow> being my favourite of all, I do like using them frequently! But since most of the commercial ones are made of harmful chemicals and I belive cosmetic products should make you feel and look beautiful without potentially harming you I have made my own kajal & mascara and it’s real good that am using it everyday!

I don’t use sugar much on a daily basis for consumption instead opt for alternatives like organic jaggery, local n wild honey 🍯 and dates / date syrup.
