Wellness and Beauty Session at VLCC

I have always ignored my skin care routine since I was a teenager. I was very lazy to even apply a sunscreen before heading out. My skin has always been normal to oily so I did not even bother to use moisturiser before. It’s been quite some time now that I have started to take care of my skin on the regular. It happened when I started getting acne on my face due to open pores, dust, pollution and excess oil on my face.

 

I started doing CTM since a year back and not many people knew about it. For instance, I skipped the moisturising step in summers and jumped directly to the sunscreen most of the times. But after attending the VLCC event, I am sure I was skipping out on something really important.

 

Let me introduce CTM to those readers who have no idea about what it is and how it works. CTM is basically cleansing, moisturising and toning. This is the only thing which will help your skin to improve, only if you follow it religiously, no skipping girls. No matter what your skin type is – dry, oily or normal you ought to bring this change in your routine from today itself. The benefit of following CTM was unknown before, but now it should be the part of one’s lifestyle.

Weight Loss

Cleanse:

Cleansing is the first, foremost step which is basic and very common one that almost everyone follows. I prefer using foam free cleanser since my skin is oily. Cleansing also includes wiping your makeup off with a Makeup remover or olive/coconut oil and then washing your face off with a cleanser. Make sure that your cleanser is mild if you have breakout prone skin. Avoid strong products with harsh chemicals on your face. Also, I recommend using a mild scrub to shed the dead cells twice in a week for your face & body. This will leave your skin smooth and fresh.

 

Tone:
Toning is the very essential for each and every one. This is my favorite step. Most of the women out there aren’t aware of the benefits of toning. Let me tell you that toning is something which helps you to clean your pores and reduces the chances of breakouts, helps you get rid of dead cells what else do you want in life girls? No to acne problems and dull skin issues. I have literally seen a difference in my skin to what it was like a year back. It’s much better now if you ask me as to what it was like before. We cannot stop going out in the sun and pollution, but we can take precautions and reduce the chances of breaking out. Toning also helps to reduce the blackheads and whiteheads formation on your skin. Use a cotton ball and clear your skin out with a toner, you will see the pore residues/ impurities right on the cotton ball when you’re done, that means your skin is still not clean after cleansing. It needs a little extra care and attention. So, this step is worth your time. Get a radiant, flawless skin right after this step.

 

Moisturise:
After you’re done with cleansing and toning the next step is moisturising which I use to skip and thought it wasn’t a big deal since I had oily skin but I was wrong. I came to know the benefits of moisturising my face after attending the VLCC event, that cleansing and toning leave your pores open and skin might start looking patchy if you don’t use a moisturiser after that. Even if your skin is oily, moisturising is very essential to balance the natural oils. I am using non-greasy moisturiser from vlcc which helps in controlling acne & excess sebum secretion, leaving my skin radiant & matte. I apply it twice a day and the results are visible. My skin has gone very supple like a baby.

Acne Treatment

After this another important step is to protect your skin by applying sunscreen 365 days a year, no matter wherever you are. This should be done every day. This was the point which was stressed upon the most during the VLCC event. sunscreen is like a shield which protects you from the harmful UV rays, pollution and dust in the air. It helps to prevent skin discoloration and blotchiness.
So follow CTM twice a day and see the results yourself. You can thank me later.

 

Another issue which is very common these days is of dark circles.
The dark discoloration under our eyes can be because of many obvious reasons like it can be heredity, stress, bad lifestyle or unhealthy diet. Though it is not a serious problem but if you don’t take care of it, it might get worse and make you look tired, dull and unhealthy pretty much all the time.

 

The best remedy which I follow is to use an under-eye gel which should be stored in the refrigerator for the best results. Gently massage it under and above your eyes before going to bed. It will give you a soothing cold relaxed effect. Introduce this step to your daily routine you will definitely see good results. Avoid using your phones or laptops after this process as it may not give you the desired results.

 

Another easy remedy that I indulge in after removing my makeup is use of rose water. Take chilled rose water, soak the cotton balls in it and put them on your eyelids for about 10-12 minutes and you are good to go. It is so relaxing especially in summers its the best part of the day. Your eyes will feel refreshed and rejuvenate in no time.

VLCC – More than Just a Slimming Center

Hope you had a great start to your week! I have been busy juggling work and the blog to create more content here for you guys. I have taken up some exciting projects so stay tuned. Also, it’s birthday week and all I can do is think about Mr. Jeromy who isn’t here with me in India.

On another note, I recently went for a meet-up at VLCC’s wellness and beauty center in HSR Layout, Bangalore. When VLCC called the event #VLCCStyleStatements, I was curious to know why the hashtag and the whole idea behind it. Once we were done with the discussion, I realized why. It is a beauty and wellness center that also offers various beauty services apart from slimming services.  The services range from salon services, laser & dermatology services as well.

Weight Loss

Before I start talking about the various services they offer, below is a small introduction on VLCC from their website:

“VLCC is widely recognized for its weight loss solutions and therapeutic approach to beauty treatments. They have among the largest scale and breadth of operations within the beauty and wellness services industry in India, serving consumers across 236 locations in 122 cities and across 11 countries in South Asia, South East Asia, the GCC Region and East Africa. We operate 197 Wellness Centres in India and 49 in 10 other countries and run VLCC Institutes of Beauty & Nutrition that have grown to become India’s largest chain of vocational education academies in the beauty and nutrition training segment with 69 campuses, training nearly 10,000 students annually and offering courses in multiple disciplines.”

 Prior to this, I am sure all of us had the notion that VLCC = a slimming center. I remember as a teenager, I used to see huge boards around the city with slimming consultations that VLCC used to advertise about. And I used to always think that’s the only thing VLCC offers.

But I was pleasantly surprised to find out the various services they offer apart from slimming. It was so wonderful meeting Sushmita, Category Manager – Beauty for VLCC, who blew me away with the knowledge she has about almost anything you ask regarding VLCC and the services they offer. A marketer who knows everything about the company she represents was indeed wonderful!

The session we had with Sushmita was very informative in terms of the different services VLCC has to offer. After this session, my notion of VLCC called only as a slimming center definitely changed. They have so many beauty and wellness services that I had no idea were introduced in India. Some of them are:

Vampire Facelift: If you know what the Kardashians are up to thanks to social media, you should also know they indulge in Vampire Facelifts very often. I have seen a lot of bloggers outside India who are also opening up to this idea now.  Vampire Facelift is basically for dull and sallow skin.  Maintaining glowing skin is hard work but the much-acclaimed Vampire Facelift uses A-PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) which is a form of blood plasma taken from your own self that has been enriched with platelets and growth factors and applied to your face with derma roller. This encourages cellular growth, stimulates healing and imparts a youthful appearance to skin.

 

A few other services that we spoke about were Derma Heal Eye Treatment. This is an eye filler treatment, exclusively formulated with innovative bio actives. It dramatically reduces the visible signs of ageing around eye area by instant wrinkle filling effect. The treatment has 24 hour-lasting hydration that would eventually improve skin texture and boosts radiance.

Not just another slimming Centre VLCC Style Statements

Am I the only one who thought of VLCC as a place that mysteriously helps people slim down tons of weight in the least amount of time?
With their marketing campaigns, and the movie Badhai ho Badhai, Anil Kapoors fat to fit stunt was their shot to fame in my head. Clear about being the best slimming Centre ever!
Although I have been noticing their increasing presence in the beauty products segment, available in lead stores. I didn’t take them quite seriously. Until the recent #VLCCStyleStatement event.

Weight Loss
From the latest Vampire facial, Kardashian favourite to the changing trends in skin & hair industry. They seemed to not just know but actually provide all the services across India. Be it Medivita which is a hair care expert therapy, to eyelash extensions, VLCC has got the global beauty updates right here for us.

 

At this recent meet up with Pune’s biggest bloggers was a fun session on beauty, skin, hair & nail care. We discussed all our skin queries, and the answers were much beyond “drink lots of water” luckily! From the ideal beauty regime to the nutrition our bodies need to have good skin and hair team VLCC covered it all.

 

What’s a fun meet up without a goodie bag with products I couldn’t stop gushing about. I used their Diamond Facial Kit from the goodie bag, had also received their detox green tea & a shape up oil which I am eager to use.

 

The diamond facial kit gave me supple glowing skin in six easy steps, judging by their product range and this event, Jugni & Co. highly recommend the beauty & care services at VLCC India.

5 Tips For Endless Weight-Loss Motivation

We are already half-way through the year, and as predicted by your family, some of you must be feeling frustrated by failing to meet out New Year Resolution for weight loss.

 

Are you one of those people who is constantly surfing the internet searching forHow to Lose Weight’ or some sort of magical ‘Diet for Weight Loss? Yet you cannot get up and actually follow the internet advice you see into your daily routine. Despite our best intentions we just never get to start, or we start and give up.

 

Here is a list of few Weight-Loss Tips that will ensure that you stay motivated and inspired through the entire process of meeting your goal.

 

  1. Don’t Stress It

One of the major reasons why people fail to stick to their diet or exercise plan is because they involve too much thought into the process which leads to unnecessary stress. Don’t be unrealistic and expect an overnight transformation. Weight-loss is a process which takes time. Be accepting to this fact and you will be able to get results sooner than you think.

 

Instead of just thinking How to Reduce Weight, begin implementing some simple solutions into your daily routine. Exercise daily, ditch the elevators and use the stairs instead, walk and cycle when you can. Apply the Weight-Loss Tips you get from other people with some care – what worked for them may not work for you or may not be appropriate for you.

 

Motivation is a positive feeling, which should always remain at the back of your mind; don’t ever let it run out. Let yourself breathe through the process. Remove all your negativity about your weight with positivity of becoming a better version of yourself. Maybe you can start with a Diet for Weight Loss if you want quick results, but don’t criticize and question every food you take. Turn your mind to a motivational quiz session whenever you are in doubt; ask yourself questions like ‘how will I look amazing if I stop following my Weight Loss Diet?’

 

  1. Focus on Staying Happy and Healthy

We often get frustrated when we focus all our attention on the weighing scale. Stop focusing on the numbers on scales and inch-tapes, rather enjoy your workout. Try different things, mix and match your routines. According to a study, regular exercise can cheer up your mood.

 

Avoid idealizing any female model or celebrity. Your aim is to get fit and healthy not become a model. These comparisons can leave negative impact on your brain, leaving you with a feeling of sadness and stress. Rather than focusing on the result, try to enjoy the feeling you get after each workout session or after having a healthy meal. Eliminate any kind of doubt that de-motivates you. Stick to a healthy Weight Loss Diet instead of skipping your diet.

 

  1. Hang Your Motivation Next to Mirror

Use your favorite dress or jeans as a motivation by hanging it next to your mirror. Wake up every day, and look at the favorite piece, and you will feel motivated enough to fit in them all over again. Visualize yourself wearing that dress and looking extremely sexy. Start feeling and igniting that lost love for yourself. Rather than thinking about How to Reduce Weight start thinking how good you will look, once you lose all that extra weight

 

Use technology as your best friend and follow use every source that positively inspires you. You can also get connected to several communities who are aiming to reduce weight just like you. Spend your time with people following the same aim and routine as you. It definitely would be a bad idea to spend your time with a friend who loves to eat cheese burst sausage pizzas! Save yourself the dilemma of choosing between a tasty slice of calorie-heavy pizza and having to say ‘no’ and stick to your Weight Loss Diet. Peer pressure motivates you to follow the majority, so be careful to follow the right crowd. So, stick with friends who are health conscious rather than the ones who are always looking for sugary treats and indulgences.

 

  1. Silence Your Inner Doubts.

We all have this nagging habit of brooding and disturbing our own peace of mind, criticizing ourselves as weak, especially when it comes to weight. Everyone either thinks they are too fat or too thin to look beautiful. We often compare ourselves with people who we would love to look like. Stress and distress caused by this self-criticism usually leads to depressing emotions which eventually infuse craving for sweet and fatty products. So next time when you feel yourself trapped in a self-critical mood, just take a deep breath, calm your mind, and eliminate all negativity by saying some positive affirmations for yourself. Start by looking in a mirror and telling yourself you are making progress every-day.

 

 

 

  1. Set Small Goals

Rather than planning to lose 20 pounds right at the start of your program, make multiple small goals, to reach the ultimate target in stages. Every small victory will motivate you to look forward to the other one and you won’t even realize when you will hit your main goal! Make a list of ways on How to Lose Weight and the reasons why you want to lose weight and hang this list somewhere you can see it every day.
