Seasonal changes can affect our skin and hair {7} . Summers mean our body demands more hydration, and winters can result in dryness which has made me finish bottle after bottle of moisturizers.

For me though, monsoons are the most trying times because of dandruff. This time too, without exception, the dandruff has returned along with an itchy and flaky scalp. This has led me to spend hours on the internet, researching on the causes of dandruff and how to choose the right anti- dandruff shampoo.

While I was trying to find a right solution for my dandruff –– I stumbled upon a very important point:
‘Not all anti-dandruff shampoos are the same’.

Any other time, I would have gone to an app and ordered the first shampoo that came under recommendations. But the point that ‘Not all anti-dandruff shampoos are the same’ made me pause and think; Was there a way I could choose an effective anti-dandruff shampoo without going through a trial and error method? Do anti-dandruff shampoos work? So, I decided to do an in-depth research on causes of dandruff and dandruff related treatments online.

Based on my in-depth research and personal experience, I have tried to answer some of the most common questions that may occur to most of the dandruff sufferers like me.

 How to choose the right dandruff shampoo? {3,6} 
1. Look for a shampoo that contains an active ingredient with three important properties: 
a. Anti-fungal Activity: This helps to treat your dandruff effectively as such shampoo works by targeting the root cause of dandruff i.e. kill certain type of fungi whose overgrowth on scalp may cause dandruff  
b. Keratolytic effect i.e. the ability to clear build-up of dead skin cells on scalp i.e.  flakiness 
c. Provide relief from itching and irritation of scalp due to dandruff 

2. And of course, checking online reviews of the products purchased in India.

Did I find a shampoo that fits all the above criteria?
Yes, while researching online, I came across a medicated anti-dandruff shampoo; Selsun Suspension 2.5%. It has been in India for over many years and contains 2.5% selenium sulphide as an active ingredient. Selenium sulphide is known to effectively treat and control dandruff due to its dual-action benefits i.e. anti-fungal and keratolytic actions. My further research online also confirmed that it is effective in providing relief from itching and irritation of scalp due to dandruff. {1}

Medicated shampoos are known to effectively treat dandruff and control its re-occurrence. I understood this when I used it myself.

A post shared by Amrit Kaur-Blogger & YouTuber🧿 (@amritkaur_amy) on

Did it work after using it for myself?
YES, it exactly worked the same way I read about it! In fact, it should be your first choice too if you want to solve your dandruff problem. However, Selsun Suspension 2.5% being a medicated shampoo, it is advised to carefully follow the pack instructions while using it. It must be used twice weekly for 2 weeks and then only when necessary. For best results, you must apply it directly on your scalp and leave it for 2-3 minutes. Lastly, don’t forget to rinse your scalp and body thoroughly with water to remove all traces of this product. {13}

When we talk about hair care then we often look for shampoos that make our hair soft and healthy, but what about scalp care? Do you know that it is equally important to take care of your scalp?

Now, you don’t have to go for trial and error method while selecting a suitable anti-dandruff shampoo. With Selsun Suspension 2.5% in dandruff you can #BeSelsunSure!

I hope that now you know how to choose the right dandruff shampoo in India and not compromise with your scalp's health. However, the underlying causes and symptoms of dandruff may vary from person to person. So, if you do not see any improvement in your condition despite using a medicated anti-dandruff shampoo, you must seek immediate advice from your dermatologist.

If you have any questions then leave a comment below, I would surely help you with more guidance. Share this article with your family and friends, so that they are aware of right solution to their scalp problems (if anyone faces them).

My Experience with Keep Cool and Soothe Toner - 85% Bamboo Water
If you are following me on Instagram then you would know that how much I lover toners. This was first time that I was trying Bamboo Water toner and I had some high expectations from it. Bamboo is a unknown ingredient to suit sensitive skin type well and keep skin hydrated. When I received the product then I had belief that Keep Cool and Soothe Toner - 85% Bamboo Toner would take care of my sensitive skin during hot, humid days.

I like the packaging of the product as they believe in taking care of the environment through their Eco-friendly packaging. What impressed me was that they had taken care of minute things like not using regular ink that is harmful and using Soy Ink that is made by soybeans and is an environmental friendly option.
Keep Cool and Soothe Toner - Maccaron

The first few days, it felt like I was applying normal water (toner) on my face and it kept my skin hydrated. After using the toner twice for 7 days, I could see that my skin was visibly better. I noticed this difference when I was shooting a video and my face looked nice without makeup. And trust me I shot the video like that (just applied lipstick, nothing else). This is the time when my belief and hope for the product was coming true. Next few days were very humid and my skin suffers during this weather but...

Keep Cool and Soothe Toner with 85% Bamboo Water took care of my skin and my skin was much calmer during the humid days. I could see that my skin was healthier (as I was following complete skincare routine and was drinking enough water as well).
Keep Cool and Soothe Toner - Maccaron

My combination sensitive skin wasn't dry any more and neither my body was warm (usually my skin is warm during hot weather, heat that can be felt). So, this time I believed that Keep Cool toner serves the purpose to keep skin cooler and calmer. With regular usage it also keeps the pH balance in control that is why occurrence of oil over T-zone area also reduces. So, if you are looking for skincare product that keeps your skin cool in hot weather then try Keep Cool and Soothe Toner - 85% Bamboo Water.

I use Keep Cool and Soothe Toner in different ways:
1. I use it as second cleanser to wipe off remaining residue after cleansing face.
2. I mix it with face pack to add some cooling effect to my face.
3. I use it after makeup removing step to instantly calm my skin.
4. I mix 2-3 drops of Keep Cool Toner in serum or essence to reduce the heating effect during massaging serum or essence on the skin.

I would recommend you all to try Keep Cool and Soothe Toner - 85% Bamboo Water and take good care of your skin. I would rate it 4.9/5. If you have any further queries about the product or brand then leave a comment below. I would be happy to answer your queries.

Sushant Singh Rajput was a hardworking personality, who wanted to excel in every field that he chose. He started with the small television screen and became a known personality with his most loved show – Pavitra Rishta. The bond between Manav and Archana was loved by everyone who watched the show and it became a turning point for both of them. Did you miss watching it? Head over to ZEE5 and re-live the one of the best relationship bonds between Manav and Archana. 
Pavitra Rishta on ZEE5
Pavitra Rishta – A Love Story of Manav and Archana is a 2009 Indian TV serial produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor, Balaji Films. The show started on 1st June 2009 and run successfully over the platform till 25 October 2014. This 5 year, 5 months long show was a hit and people loved the chemistry between the main leads. The show starts with Archana, Ankita Lokhande, who is a sincere lady and dreams to achieve and fulfil her dreams. Her mother, Sulochana (Savita Prabhune), wanted Archana to get settled with an educated and financially stable gentleman who would take care of her forever. But… ‘Kehte hai na Jodi Bhagwan banate hai.

Archana’s first engagement was called off and then her marriage got fixed with the hero of the show, Manav. Manav was a hardworking car mechanic, but Archana’s sister-in-law was cunning, so she told a lie to their family. She told them that Manav was a mechanical engineer and the garage where he worked was his own. Archana’s mother was happy and everything went on smoothly, but… ‘Jab tak kahani mei twist na ho to maza kaha.
Pavitra Rishta on ZEE5

As Ekta Kapoor is famous for her drama serials, so the drama went on and right after marriage Archana and her family got to know Manav’s truth. Now, what? Will Archana go and live with Manav or break the marriage? This was the break point in the show because this is when the truth bond between Manav and Archana started.

Manav and Archana stayed apart for few days, but Bhagwan ki marzi ke age kiski chalti hai, so they had to come together. Archana’s mother did her Bidaai and she entered her new life with Manav. The story looks so fancy like a fairy-tale, but this couple did not have a happy life ever after because in real life there are struggles, happiness, ups and downs in life. This is the main reason that Pavitra Rishta was a hit as many people could relate to the storyline. 

Also, the entry of khadoos saas in Archana’s life makes the serial more interesting as Usha Nadkarni’s acting is great as well as hilarious sometimes which adds more life to the serial. And the super talented actors like Sushant Singh Rajput, Ankita Lokhande, Savita Prabhune, Usha Nadkarni, Asha Negi, Rithvik Dhanjani and others left no stone unturned to make the storyline feel real. Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande acted like a real-life couple. Their chemistry and struggles could be related to what many of us experience in our life. I enjoyed watching this serial and it is one of my favourites.

Also did I tell you that, the lie of Manav became true later in the years and he settled abroad with his family. But was Archana with him for the entire life? Did they stay together? Head over to ZEE5 now and watch Pavitra Rishta to break the suspense and enjoy the serial with your family.

We often wonder how did the ancient humans had natural glowing skin without using the present era products. Well, the answer is not a hidden mystery because ancient humans preferred using natural and organic ingredients which were easily available and had great medicinal properties. Roses are one of those ingredients as they are known since ages to give natural, glowing skin. But, does the ancient ingredient work well now? Is Rose Water Good for Skin? The answer is YES!
Is rose water good for skin?

As we are moving ahead in the modern world, the technology has connected skincare industry back to the ancient formulations. Now-a-days, brands are more conscious about providing best skincare solutions with natural or organic ancient recipes. The brands and the consumers now prefer using ingredients in their natural form to give maximum visible results, so get ready for the natural glow with Rose Water.

Toner/Mist : I spray it directly onto the skin and gently pat for few seconds.
Mix in Face or Hair Packs : Rose water is great ingredient for hair as well, so mix it with face or hair packs for additional benefits.
Mix with thick creams : Sometimes in summers, I don't like using thick creams so I mix them with rose water to lighten the texture and apply on the face during night skincare routine.
Use it as body spray : If you love rose fragrance then do spray rose water over your body for an amazing fragrance for long hours. Remember not to spray too much as it is water so might wet your clothes.

Amid this tensed situation, ZEE5 never fails to motivate and entertain its users with regular update of Movies and Original Series on the OTT Platform. Recently, one my friend from Mumbai suggested me to watch a Marathi movie, Pushpak Vimaan. It is a light-hearted movie that shows real-life struggles of moving from a village to the city. Well, this is relatable with the current situation as we all are adapting ourselves with the lockdown and living with limited available resources.

Check out the list of Free Marathi Movies on ZEE5.

Story Line
Subodh Bhave has been one of my favourite actors, so I was curious to watch Pushpak Vimaan. This is a family drama that revolves around, Tatya and his grandson Vilas. Tatya lives in the village while his grandson Vilas lives in the city with his wife. Tatya loves his village life and devotes most of the time with God. He has a keen interest in mythology and is a keertankaar.

One day, Tatya was not well, so his neighbour called Vilas to the village (as there was no other relative in the village). Vilas was worried for his grandfather, so he went to the village too look into the matter. As Vilas couldn't stay there for long, so he convinced Tatya to shift to Mumbai so that he and his wife can take good care of him. Soon, Tatya started missing his village and couldn't adjust in the city life well, so he decided to go back to the village.

Before heading to the village, Tatya went to meet his friend's daughter in Saki Naka. There Tatya sees seroplane for the first time and referred it as Pushpak Vimaan. Well, you would be assuming that why did he say that? Tatya has always been attached to mythology, where he learnt that one Sant Tukaram used aeroplane i.e. Pushpak Vimaan to go to the Heaven. Now, Tatya wishes to get onto the Pushpak Vimaan and reach Heaven like Sant Tukaram. So, now what? If grandfather wishes then it is duty of his grandson to fulfill his wish to go on an aeroplane journey. Does his wish gets fulfilled? Does he reach the Heaven? Well, I won't break the climax here. Go and watch the movie now on ZEE5 with your family and enjoy over the weekend or any other day.

Conclusion
Pushpak Vimaan is a nice movie to watch one-time with your family. The actors like Subodh Bhave, Mohan Joshi and Gouri Mahajan have a powerful character and acting skills, which keeps you intact for the entire 2 hours 7 minutes. Moreover, the film connects with real-life situations between two different generations talking about mythology and advanced technology. I like that the movie is shot at real places, which add more realistic touch to it. I am sure you would like to watch Pushpak Vimaan and know who wins at the end - mythology or technology?

Desserts! Which dish comes in your mind when you hear this word? Brownie with Chocolate Sauce is all over my mind these days. As we all are quarantined inside our houses, so we cannot go out and treat our taste buds with our favourite desserts. But this doesn't mean that we cannot think of them. Are you craving for desserts? Which is your favourite?
Desserts Cravings

Recently, I was craving for some desserts, so my mother made Besan Laddos for me. Aren't they delicious? Do you like having them? Let's discuss about few desserts and let me know which one is your favourite or are you craving for them during this quarantine?

Gulab Jamun
Gulab Jamun to meri jaan hai... This is most wanted dessert of weddings or any other occasions. People feel incomplete without having gulab jamun with ice cream or rabri at a special occasion. My brother loves it a lot, like he can have them every day. And I am not joking... They come in various shapes like round and long. I like having the brown long gulab jamuns while my brother loves to have black round ones. Which one you like?

Besan ke Laddoo
Besan is one ingredient that I love to have be it in any meal. Besan ke Laddoo are made during winters in our house to keep our body warm during cold weather. My mother fills it with almonds, raisins, cashews, gond, makhana's and other ingredients. This time during quarantine she made more Besan ke Laddoo but she didn't add the dry fruits but added flax seeds, makhana's, watermelon seeds and soaked almonds so that it doesn't harm body during warm weather. And one more thing, she made half the original size of laddoo so that we consume small quantity as compared to winter laddoos. Which laddoos are made at your home?
besan ke laddoo

Jujube Candies
Since childhood, I have always loved having jujebe's and gummies. I remember that me and my family used to visit Jaincorner Shop in Kamla Nagar, Delhi and we used to buy the ones which had different shapes. Jaincorner had the most authentic ones which had original taste and we used to called them as 'Rubber wali Goli'. Till now, I like having jujube's and gummies. In 2018, I visited Korea and got so many packets from there for my family and friends. Have you tried jujube's?

Brownies
Brownie sun ke to muh mei paani aa jata hai... I don't like to eat milk chocolates so that's why I always go for dark chocolate or brownies as they have the authentic taste which my taste buds love. I prefer having warm brownies with some chocolate sauce or ice cream scoop. How do you prefer having them?

Cakes and Pastries
Who doesn't like having cakes and pastries? We cut cake on special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Pastries are small version of cake cut into slices of equal size. Over the time, my taste has changed a lot and now I prefer having dark chocolate pastries, berries ones and my most favourite cheesecake. Trust me while writing this and looking at pictures, my mouth is shouting, 'GIVE ME SOME DESSERTS!!'

Review

This is an original biopic of Karenjit Kaur, famously known as Sunny Leone. The series starts from her childhood, where she lives with her conservative Sikh Family in Canada. She lived with her parents and a younger brother. All her family members were supportive, but they were not coping with the modern world. Her parents were confined to family issues while Sunny and her brother were open-minded and lived a modern lifestyle. During her teenage, she went forward to do a lingerie ad where she had to shed her clothes. She was a lot nervous as she was the only Asian model among other American models. Though, she was nervous and not accepting the scenario that happened but later she had to step into the adult entertainment industry. It was not a happy decision, but the need of the hour because her father had lost his job and the life overseas, is not that easy. Sunny's father had always been supportive, but her mother wasn't too happy with her profession.

The drama is quite interesting as it has few punches and instances that many Punjabi families would relate and enjoy watching them. Similarly, the drama also gives a glimpse of situations that few families, who go overseas and get discriminated due to colour, might face and land up taking a forceful path. All the three seasons are connected to each other well. It would have been difficult for Sunny to live her life again, but her story explains well how she is a strong women at present.

The Season 1 and 2 talks more about her life before she entered Big Boss Season 5, from where she became known and famous in India. Later, she entered the Bollywood industry and fought for her identity and image. Luckily, she fought with all ups and downs and stood up as a strong women. So, I would suggest you, watch the series as you would be hooked to know what's next and end up watching the entire season at one go, just like me and my family did.

I liked the biopic series, so I would rate it 4.5/5.

Review
Code M is a drama web series that revolves around Indian Army Lawyer, Monica Mehra, who works hard to decode a special case. She is handed over the task to decode the death of an army officer and two militant suspects. If you like adventurous and mysterious series then you would enjoy watching this with your family. Monica Mehra, a bride-to-be, leaves no stone unturned to solve this mystery. Soon, she understands that what is being portrayed is not the truth. She investigates from all the people who are related to the case and comes to a conclusion that all the three dead men were victims.

Jennifer is known for her outstanding acting skills and she again proves the same in Code M series. The interest and mystery that she brings in with each episode, keeps you intact to the screen and know what's next. As Monica, reaches the climax, she doubts Rajat Kapoor, who refuses to share the secrets behind the top powers in Army. But with love, care, investigation, research and dedication, Monica cracks the code and the series ends with a crisp climax. I would suggest you to watch this series and know more about what goes behind the Army system. This series also teaches a good lesson that one should not always believe in what is visible. So, book a time and enjoy the series with your family.

I like such a mystery drama series, so I would rate this 4.7/5.
