How to do a facial clean up at home

Doing a cleanup at home is not difficult at all. If you have the right products, the process becomes simpler.

Get a face wash that suits your skin type: Before you begin with the process, wash your face with a face wash that is suits your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, a one that contains salicylic acid is right for you. Similarly, if you have dry skin, a one that moisturizes your face is ideal for you.

A mild scrub to eliminate dead skin cells: Dead skin cells make your face look dull. Thus to enhance your skin tone, use a scrub that not only suits your skin type but also takes care of blackhead problems.

Apply a moisturizing face pack: No matter what your skin type is, the application of a moisturizing face pack makes your skin soft and supple and also improves your skin tone. Take one spoon of honey along with aloe Vera juice or Neem powder and apply it evenly on your face.

A nourishing face cream to make your skin soft: Another thing that will make your skin soft is the application of a nourishing face cream. Right after you've applied the face pack, make it a point to evenly apply the cream on your face and neck.

Moto G is scoring Lollipop to lead off this week's Android device updates roundup

Motorola is again showing why it’s one of the more reliable manufacturers when it comes to cranking out Android updates.

Lollipop is rolling out to the current-generation Moto G, so get ready for some Material Design, multitasking cards, and all the other goodies Google cooked up.

Each week we gather up all the major software updates for the biggest devices; phones and tablets on U.S. carriers (and unlocked phones, of course), wearables, and round them all up so you don’t miss a thing.

Making sure your device installs the latest software is a good housekeeping practice, ensuring you have the latest features, close security holes, and squish those pesky bugs.

Moto G (second generation): The most recent version of the Moto G is next up for Android Lollipop. The company said in a Google+ post that the update will be rolling out in phases. Hitting that update button repeatedly probably won’t help, but at least you know for sure it’s coming.

The Ultimate Winter Checklist for your Hair!

Here’s your ultimate winter beauty checklist that will make sure you have that lustrous mane you’ve been dying for.

Intense Moisturizing

The best way to keep your hair shiny and glossy during winters is to switch your regular conditioner to an intense conditioner meant for dry hair. During winter, the natural oils that keep your hair moisturized get sapped easily, and leave your hair dry and frizzy. Giving it that extra moisture is only going to help, so do get it without a second thought.

Quality Products

Winter or not, make sure you always use quality products for your hair and skin. Don’t be lured by new shampoos and conditioners arriving in the market- changing the hair care products you use too often can actually cause damage to your hair. Instead, stick to the products that you know your hair loves, especially if you have dry hair that is more prone to damage and breaks easily.

Hair Trimming

The benefits of regular trimming are severely underrated. Not only does trimming help keep split ends at bay, but it also helps maintain your hair and keeps it glossy and shiny. In fact, it is also believed that trimming every 6-8 weeks can help improve hair growth and enhances the natural beauty of your hair by getting rid of the damaged hair.

Occasional Oiling

Your scalp health says a lot about your hair health and vice vera, and during winters, make sure you give that little extra pampering to your scalp, which is vulnerable to drying out. Choose from almond oil, argan oil and coconut oil and give yourself a nice head massage atleast once a week. These oils can actually give your scalp and hair roots the nutrients they need to keep your hair shiny and glossy.

Get Wise

Be it summers or winters, one hair care tip you should live by is to use lukewarm water while rinsing your hair. You may love going for a hot water bath during the chilly winters, but it will only leave your hair frizzy and unmanageable. Instead, use hot water for your body bath and choose lukewarm water to wash your hair. Limiting the number of times you have a head bath is also believed to be helpful during winters.
