Debunking the distorted tale of Namrata


Ever since the suicide news of a 13 YO girl, Namrata, from St. Mary’s School, Naharkatia (Assam), burst forth, it dispersed like a wildfire, became the buzz of every household and newsrooms. But amid the tumult and roars of camouflaged conspiracies, the real picture got overshadowed by its numerous sequels.

Because sensationalism sells, the myriad media houses, instead of digging deep to find the root causes, branched out a multitude of different perspectives, shaping new angles every day, offering the world to flap their critical opinions about the school, its teachers, and the related “corporal punishments.”

Hence, to light the truth, let me reveal some shocking brass tacks about the incident.

The Story- 2015

Everything was flowing in its usual manner. Namrata was in standard five. It was Miss Bandita’s (pseudonym) birthday. So, getting hold of some lame excuses, Namrata visited her teacher’s place and insisted on staying the night (although she was not invited, she decided to self-invite) with her. Things went well for the next two years. Namrata considers her teacher as one of her closest someones.

Things started turning ugly- 2017

Namrata stepped in her seventh standard. Gradually, she started exhibiting bizarre behavior toward Bandita. She would call her at odd hours, text her inappropriate messages like “I miss you,” “I wanted to see you in the staircase, you didn’t come,” would stalk her to the loo, corridors, and everywhere. Namrata even threatened of involving in self-mutilation. Paraphilias like knife, blades, needle, and band-aid were always present in her school-bag.

In one instance, she deliberately bruised her wrist with a blade and whatsapped the photo to Bandita, disclosing her fondness. Having a grip of her unusual acts, Bandita too got frightened and decided to discuss with one of her friends, who further directed to inform the headmistress, Sister Rancy.

The headmistress decided to call her guardians and acquaint them about their daughter’s acts. After countless phone calls, finally, her father picked up the call. She was asked to confront all her activities, which she did, and apologized not to repeat again.

On a summer morning of August, her classmates and teachers stood surprised to find her chopping off her hair. On being asked by her NCC teacher, she replied that the cap doesn’t fit on her head and hence she decided to hang around with a boys-type hairdo.

Then followed a trail of events, every other day

On 28th, Monday, Sister Rancy saw her staying aloof from her friends. When asked about the reason, Namrata replied being fine, in her casual manner. In order to console her, Sister Rancy spoke, “When you go home today, do not open your books, don’t study today. Just scribble your heart out in a paper.”

The next day Namrata surprised Sister Rancy with 7-8 pages of her feelings. She even expressed her gratitude toward the headmistress for understanding her.

On 29th, Tuesday, the class monitor complained the class teacher, Miss Ramida Rahman (who according to some news reports was the one to agitate Namrata to commit suicide) of scrawling obscene texts on the desk, such as I love you Bandita, and other offensive accounts. Without a second thought, Miss Ramida informed the Headmistress.

When Sister Rancy inquired about the inappropriate deed to the class, Namrata boldly stood up, presumably with rage. Sister Rancy went to her to resolve the issue and advised her not to engage in such things again, to which Namrata outraged her with a smirk. The headmistress lost her cool and reverted with a slap (which according to some sources is extreme punishment).

The bell rang. Everyone rushed to their homes but Namrata had different plans that evening. She blocked Miss Bandita’s way and repeatedly started asking her if she had granted her pardon. Bandita vouched for her that she has no issue with her and that she forgave her long back.

Bandita then rushed to the headmistress’ office and narrated the happening. Sister Rancy decided to ring her mother and call her to take her daughter home. She didn’t pick. After recurrent phone calls, finally, the mother picked the phone and replied that she cannot go.

A few hours later, the news of Namrata taking her life by jumping into a river broke out.

Few highlights of the story

  • Namrata used to loiter around Miss Bandita’s house in a bike to get her glimpse
  • Namrata had a host of suicide notes written in her diary. She had been writing those for a prolonged period.
  • She used to threaten her classmates about committing suicide
  • Her neighbors didn’t like her because of her odd conducts
  • “My love is not duplicate. I can prove it by suicide.” Was one of her notes.
  • “I want to die,” was her Whatsapp status a few days back
  • After her death, none of her neighbors or acquaintances came to see her, except her parents and few cops who followed her to the cremation ground. In fact, she was not even allowed to enter her village.
  • She was NOT harrassed by the headmistress. She was asked to clip her hair (which appeared like her hair being pulled by the headmistress to some).

A majority of suicides have been preceded by warning signs, verbal and behavioral. In Namrata’s case, despite her clear indications, her closest friends, neighbors, and even parents failed to track her steps.

Should the school administration be blamed because they had decided to inform her parents or revealed her strange behaviors and acts publicly in class? Or should her parents be held responsible, because despite being aware of her condition, they didn’t make any attempt to counsel her? Or is it the society who should be questioned for its ignorance, prejudices, and stereotypical attitudes toward mental health?

Because of society’s lack of wisdom and stigma shrouding mental health, we lost a hardworking and helpful Namrata. Had she been counseled on time, had she been enlightened about mental health, about her different behavior, had her society been informed about the warning signs or how to handle such sensitive issue in a delicate way, Namrata would have been breathing now.

5 Significant Mens Street Fashion Trends for 2022

street fashion men

As we move further into 2022, it’s only natural to start looking ahead to the next year and what mens street fashion trends might be big then. And while we can’t say for certain what will happen in the world of fashion, we can take a look at some of the trends that have been bubbling under the surface and are poised to make a big splash in 2023. From bright colors to bold patterns, here are five men’s street fashion trends to keep an eye on for next year.


Athleisure is a trend that has been on the rise in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. This style combines comfort and function with fashion, resulting in clothing that can be worn both to the gym and out on the town. While athleisure used to be reserved for sporty styles, it has since expanded to include everything from joggers to hoodies and bombers.

There are a few key pieces that are essential to nailing the athleisure look. First, a good pair of joggers is a must. They should be comfortable enough to wear all day, but also stylish enough to pair with an appealing t-shirt or jacket. Second, you’ll need some sort of outerwear piece, whether it’s a sweatshirt, hoodie, or windbreaker. This will help you transition from your workout to your errands without having to change clothes. Finally, a good pair of sneakers is essential. They should be comfortable enough to walk or run in, but also stylish enough to complete your outfit.

With these key pieces in mind, you can start putting together your athleisure looks. Mix and match different tops and bottoms until you find what works for you. And don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors and textures – there are no rules when it comes to this trend!

Oversized Clothing

Street fashion has always been about pushing boundaries and expressing yourself through your clothes. In recent years, we’ve seen a shift away from traditional sizing and an embrace of oversized clothing. This trend is all about comfort and style, and it’s perfect for anyone who wants to make a statement.

Whether you’re looking for a new everyday outfit or something to wear on a night out, oversized clothing is a great option. You can find Oversized shirts, dresses, jackets, and more in any style you can imagine. And the best part is that anyone can wear them!

If you’re not sure how to style oversized clothing, don’t worry – there are plenty of ways to do it. You can keep it simple with jeans and a t-shirt, or dress it up with sneakers and a blazer. No matter how you wear it, you’ll be sure to turn heads.

Bold Colors and Patterns

Bold colors and patterns are making a big comeback in street fashion. Bright, eye-catching colors are everywhere, from clothing to accessories. And bold, graphic patterns are also becoming more popular. This is a great trend for those who want to stand out from the crowd and make a statement with their style.

Vintage and Retro Styles

Vintage and retro styles are becoming increasingly popular among young people. There are several reasons for this, including a desire to stand out from the crowd and express individuality.

These styles can be achieved by shopping at vintage stores or thrift stores, or by scouring online retailers like Etsy. To get a truly authentic look, it’s important to choose items that are in good condition and that fit well.

Another way to achieve a vintage or retro look is to DIY it. This can be done by upcycling old clothes or by creating new garments using vintage patterns. Whichever route you choose, make sure you have fun with it!

Sustainable and Ethical Fashion

Sustainable and ethical fashion is one of the most significant street fashion trends for 2022. Consumers are becoming more aware of the environmental and social impact of their clothing choices, and are seeking out brands that align with their values.

The demand for sustainable fashion has grown tremendously in recent years, as shoppers become more mindful of the negative impacts of fast fashion. In response, many major retailers are beginning to offer more sustainable options, including recycled materials, organic cotton, and fair trade products. Consumers are increasingly interested in supporting brands that are transparent about their manufacturing processes and treat their workers fairly.

Here’s How You Can Hog The Street Fashion

When it comes to fashion, there is nothing more important than being comfortable in your skin. However, one of the best ways to find your style is by taking inspiration from the latest mens street fashion trends. From there, you can put your spin on the trend to make it work for you. Here are some tips on how to wear street fashion trends:

– Start with the basics

Every good outfit starts with a great foundation. Before you start adding trendy pieces, make sure you have a solid base of basics that you feel comfortable in. This could include items like a well-fitting pair of jeans, a stylish tee shirt, or a comfy cardigan.

Add in some trendier pieces

Once you have your basics sorted out, it’s time to add in some trendier pieces. This could be anything from a printed blazer to a pair of statement earrings. The key here is not to go overboard – pick one or two key pieces that will help elevate your look.

– Finish with accessories

The right accessories can help pull an outfit together. Think about adding a pop of color with your shoes or belts, or going for an edgier look with some punk-inspired jewelry.

Affordable Skincare Basics: A proven 28-day nighttime routine

Blue nectar, affordable skincare basics

Natural radiance is an important indicator of healthy skin. The skin’s natural radiance comes from the many layers that make up your epidermis and dermis, as well as the blood vessels underneath. However, factors like lack of adequate sleep, stress, aging, and even your diet may strip your skin of its brightness. Moreover, a hectic schedule, laziness, and not having a nighttime skincare routine are some of the reasons why people fail to follow a skincare regime. If you want to achieve radiant skin, here are some tips.

  • Eat foods rich in vitamin C, like citrus fruits and vegetables. This will help build collagen and improve blood circulation. 
  • The best way to keep your skin glowing is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 
  • Follow a skincare routine.

It is important that you also check the ingredients first before testing out products. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid using products that contain harsh ingredients. Sulfates, alcohol, fragrances, and other preservatives can irritate your skin and can cause substantial damage. Instead, look for products that are made from natural ingredients like aloe vera, shea butter, or coconut oil.

If you have dry skin, avoid products that contain alcohol or other drying ingredients. Instead, try using gentler products that contain hyaluronic acid, glycerine, or aloe vera.

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for products that contain retinol, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, or salicylic acid. These ingredients can help remove excess oil from your face and prevent acne breakouts. These products are gentler on your skin and less likely to irritate.

If you are looking for the best vitamin for skin glow or the best oil for skin glow or glowing skin products, look no further. Here’s a basic nighttime skincare routine that will not just help achieve radiant skin but will also improve skin texture and make one feel confident. Try this routine for a month or two and let me know your feedback.

Wash your face at least twice a day

One of the most important things you can do to keep your skin healthy is to wash it regularly. At least twice a day, wash your face. Use a gentle cleanser if you have sensitive skin. The best way to find a suitable cleanser or a face wash is to check for ingredients. Numerous products that contain harsh ingredients like sulfates, fragrances, or detergents can deteriorate the skin. Look for products that are made from natural ingredients like aloe vera or coconut oil.

Exfoliation is a must

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells. It is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine. It helps with acne and blackheads, as well as keeps your pores clean and unclogged.

Blue nectar scrub

It’s also a must for oily and combination skin. Exfoliation is something everyone can benefit from, even if you don’t have any skin problems or breakouts. Particularly, a kumkumadi scrub, besides improving the skin tone also keeps your pores clean and clear and prevents future breakouts.

It’s important to keep in mind that your skin is an important part of your overall wellness. It’s essential to look after your skin with a clean beauty routine as well as with products that are specifically designed to address your needs.

The best way to ensure that you’re doing this properly is by using a Kumkumadi Brightening Face Scrub. Saffron, almonds, and turmeric are blended into the face scrub to organically nourish, exfoliate, and brighten the skin. By stimulating the growth of new skin cells, it treats damaged skin and enhances the texture of supple, soft, and radiant skin.

Some of the other benefits of a kumkumadi face scrub include:

  • Reducing blemishes
  • Relieving dryness and irritation
  • Helping the skin maintain its natural moisture balance

Tone it up!

Rose water toner is great for your skin. It has antibacterial properties that help you get rid of the toxins in your skin. Rose water is a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help reduce redness and irritation from sunburns or dry skin. The addition of rose water to a daily skincare routine can also improve your complexion by helping to cool down your skin’s temperature.

Blue Nectar rose water

Shubhr Steam Distilled Rose Toner Water is a must-have in your daily skincare routine. It’s rich in antioxidants, which protect your skin from free radicals and environmental damage. Its natural astringent properties heal skin, prevent clogged pores, and may help reduce acne, pimples, and other skin issues, eventually making you look more radiant and youthful.

Use Kumkumadi Serum

A face serum is a product that helps to restore moisture to the skin while also improving its texture and tone. It can be used on any part of the face but is especially helpful for dry areas like the forehead, cheeks, and chin. The best face serums contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamins A and E, and antioxidants that help keep your skin looking young and healthy. But what exactly is a kumkumadi tailam or a kumkumadi oil? As per Ayurveda, kumkumadi tailam has numerous usages and benefits. Rich in antioxidants, kumkumadi tailam usage is way beyond any regular moisturizer or skin defense cream and oil. From reducing dark circles and blemishes to improving one’s complexion and skin texture, a kumkumadi serum can work wonders for any skin type.

Blue nectar serum

Infused with 26 vital ayurvedic herbs, this Kumkumadi Face Glowing Oil is great for anyone who wants to get rid of redness, boost collagen production, brighten dull skin, repair pigmentation, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains hydrating ingredients that help your skin retain moisture, which can help prevent dryness and flakiness.

Choose a decent night cream

Night creams are a great addition to your night skincare routine. They contain ingredients that help the skin while you sleep and can even help you wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. However, the chief ingredient in a kumkumadi night cream is crocus sativus or saffron. This herb boosts one’s skin radiance and is effective in treating dark spots.

Blue nectar night cream

One of the most important benefits of using a night cream is that it reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Blue Nectar’s Shubhr Kumkumadi Night Cream with Jasmine is mostly a blend of organic ingredients that nourish your skin and help it glow. It is especially helpful for those who have dry skin and sensitive skin. Its deep hydration formula protects and nourishes the skin from damage caused by free radicals and other environmental sources. Another benefit is that this night cream helps restores moisture levels to your skin and prevents dryness and flaking in the morning when you wake up.

Need for a nighttime skincare routine

You can’t go wrong with a good moisturizer and sunscreen. But to get the most out of your skincare routine, it is important to know your skin type and what you’re putting on it.

A gentle cleanser will help remove any dirt or makeup that might be clogging up your pores; a good toner will help keep skin from drying out as you work to exfoliate—which is a must for healthy-looking skin; a serum will hydrate and improve circulation in the skin, which is important for plumpness and elasticity; an exfoliating mask will help remove dead skin cells and make sure that any new ones are helping to make the surface of your skin smoother instead of rough; night cream will ensure you look radiant and confident when you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror.

If you’re looking for a way to maintain your glowing skin, look no further than Blue Nectar. They have covered some of the best products to make skin glow. The products are made from natural and ayurvedic ingredients that will help you achieve the soft, smooth, radiant complexion you’ve been dreaming of. Blue Nectar products are made with safe ingredients for sensitive skin, and they are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. It also contains no parabens or sulfates, and it’s great for both your face and your body!

Clean beauty is about taking care of your body, mind, and spirit. It’s about eating healthy foods and exercising regularly, but also being mindful of the environment around you. By incorporating these practices into your life, you will be able to feel better in every part of yourself.


3 Ultimate Reasons Why Men Need a Skincare Routine

Man skincare, Men skincare routine

Here’s a guy approaching you; he’s dressed with just the right amount of casual and whimsy, has accessories that perfectly match his outfit, a style that would amaze anybody in a crowded room, and a charm that would fascinate any lady. He appeared a little scruffy, but that’s okay. But hey! Wait! Those bags under his eyes resemble a panda’s. He has skin that seems like that of a rhino. And ugh, his beard! It appears like thorns are gentler.

Men frequently believe they don’t need to spend money on a skincare regimen. But the reality is that a person’s skin may reveal a lot about their personality and general health. Everyone wants to be in excellent health, but it’s equally important to care for your body on the inside and out. This means frequent cleaning, taking care of your skin, and obtaining a skin checkup once a year should all be included in your plan.

Why men should care about their skin

Man skincare, Men skincare, Man applying face pack

Men who believe they don’t require skincare are only deluding themselves since the first thing that people notice is the skin. You have to take care of it or you’ll end up looking older than you are and get wrinkly faster. Your skin says a lot about you, so you better take good care of it, man!

Here we have 3 good reasons for you to invest in skincare.

  • Investing is better than cure

You can’t just wake up in the morning and expect your skin to be flawless, your beard to grow at a healthy rate, or your hair to look decent. You must adhere to the path of proper grooming and dietary practices. Setting up a decent skincare regimen that includes shaving, cleaning, and moisturizing will help you maintain your impeccable appearance.

Skin is the largest organ in your body, and it’s responsible for protecting you from harmful elements. Additionally, it serves as the initial line of defense against bacteria that cause illness and infection. This is why it is important to take care of the skin.

You can invest in a Stud Face Combo by Dcraf. The products are dermatologically tested, 100% vegan, and cruelty-free.

  • To sunscreen or not to!

You may have heard that sunscreen is good for your skin, but how exactly can a good sunscreen help a man’s skin from damage? Sunscreen is a great investment when it comes to protecting your skin. A good sunscreen helps protect your skin from damage caused by the sun, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. You can try sunscreen from Dcraf. Designed specifically for men’s skin, this SPF50 sunscreen is an integral addition to your daily regime.

Dcraf Sunscreen

If you want to keep your skin healthy, always use sunscreen on your face and neck. Not just does sunscreen reduces the risk of sunburn, but also protects against other kinds of damage caused by the sun. For example, regular use of sunscreen can help protect against wrinkles and age spots.

  • Glowing, healthy skin is attractive to women.

Women are attracted to men who take care of themselves. If a man has healthy and glowing skin, it’s much more likely that he will have good health overall. You may check The Essential Skincare Routine for Glowing Skin

We’re not saying that men should be using skincare products as a way of attracting women, but we do think that it is important for them to take care of their skin. Since there are so many benefits to doing this (from looking better in your clothes), keeping yourself clean and well-groomed is worth considering.

How To Choose The Right Necklaces For Necklines

necklaces for necklies

One of the most important accessories in your wardrobe is a neckpiece. It can give you that extra bit of glamour, or just help you look more put together. But not all necklaces are created equal, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed when you’re trying to choose which neckpiece is right for you! Necklaces are a style staple, and there are different types of neckpieces for necklines.

But what kind of necklace is right for your neckline?

This article explores the different types of neckpieces for necklines and how to choose one that best complements your outfit.

What type of necklace to wear with different necklines

When choosing different necklaces for necklines, there are a few things to consider. First, you need to determine what kind of look you want: Are you looking for something simple and understated? Or would you rather have something more ornate?

Next, think about whether or not the necklace will go well with your outfit: Will it match your shoes or hair color? If so, stick with simple chains and avoid anything too extravagant or ornate. If not, then go for a larger chain with plenty of sparkle and pizazz.

The last thing to consider is how much room there is on your neck. Many people wear their hair in ponytails or buns these days; however, wearing a piece that defines your hairstyle as well your hair length can steal the game. If you want to wear a high-top bun, accessorize with a choker or a layered necklace with lots of sparkles. Wear a neckpiece that matches the form of your top otherwise.

Choose the perfect necklace for your outfit

Whether you’re wearing a scoop neck dress, or a V-neck or low-cut dress, you’ll always want to get the most bang for your buck by pairing it with an appropriate piece of jewelry. Here are some ideas:

different types of neckpieces for necklines

Simple and layered chains all day long: A simple pendant or a layered necklace can be a gamechanger if you happen to pick the right piece. Spiritual jewelry is in vogue. You can jump on to try its different variants. If you prefer a simple and subtle look, a round-shaped Mandala Neckpiece can steal the show. These neckpieces go well with a scoop neck, boat neck, squared, V, and even with a wrap neck.

World of Ek is one such site where you have a range of quirky and contemporary yet elegant neckpieces that are great for any occasions. These modern spiritual pieces of jewelry are created to help you radiate positive energy and shine like never before. Powerful symbols like the evil eye and hamsa hand are used in World of EK’s jewelry line to bring luck, wealth, and positive vibrations into your life. They are all created with semi-precious stones and 22K gold plating.

Chokers for that extra appearance: When you wish to appear a bit more extravagant, plump for chokers. These are a perfect pick if you have an office celebration, a Diwali invite, a wedding, or just a traditional ceremony where you want to up your traditional outfit.

Bib for the occasion: As the name implies, bib necklaces wrap your entire neck. These are mostly statement elements that give an otherwise basic ensemble a broader and bolder appearance. Additionally, bibs enhance your sense of style and individuality if you are wearing a deep U-neck, boat, or sweetheart-neck dress.

Get inspired by the celebs.

Don’t you just cheese off when there is an unplanned occasion to attend and you are left with little to no choice with your accessories? Even with all the available options, nothing seems like a good fit and you go haywire to single out that one match.

Here’s a bonus. Just google the latest designs or recent events celebrities appeared and steal their look. Bingo! Or otherwise, jump on to Pinterest and type your neckline. You now have a catalog.

Know what works best for your height and body type.

Now that you know how to choose a necklace, it’s time to pick out the right one. The first thing to consider is what works best for your neckline. If you’re tall and thin, a long necklace will look better than an open-ended one because there will be more space between your jawline and the end of the piece. You can also experiment with different styles: if you’re more of a minimalist kind of girl (or boy), go for something simple; if not, try something flirty or bolder in color.

Next up: knowing your body type. Don’t just stick with one type! There are plenty of other factors involved in choosing jewelry—such as personality and budget—that determine which pieces are most appropriate for each person’s style preferences.

This is the latest trend in jewelry and style.

Necklaces for necklines exist and they have their way to add charm to your overall appearance. They can be layered and worn as an accessory, or they can be worn alone with a simple top. If you’re looking for something that will look good on all kinds of body types, experiment with different jewelry designs and styles!

If you want something more casual than a necklace, consider adding it as part of your choice of earrings or bracelets. Or if you need something more formal but still want it on the hip (and not too much), try wearing them together instead—you know how we love those “double up” looks!

By all means, don’t be afraid to play around with your look! Think about what your occasion or purpose is and experiment with different color combinations.

  • If you’re wearing your favorite pair of jeans today and want to add some sparkle to them (without sacrificing comfort), go with a simple chain that matches your outfit while still being versatile enough to work with any occasion.
  • If you’re going for a more casual vibe, layer some choker chains over your favorite pendant.
  • Or if you want something more playful and fun, go for something bolder like silver or black colored metal chains.

The accessories that we wear on our bodies can say a lot about us. They represent our personality, identity, and style. Wear your jewelry but with confidence.

The Surprising Benefits of Sleeping on a Silk Pillowcase

silk pillowcase

You may have heard about the health benefits of sleeping on silk pillowcases, but did you know that there are even more? Besides helping prevent wrinkles, sleeping on silk pillowcases can also improve your skin’s hydration levels. Read on to learn more. 

Wrinkle Prevention

A silk pillowcase can do more than prevent wrinkles. Unlike traditional cotton pillowcases, silk does not create friction on the skin, because it is a protein-based fabric, it moisturizes the skin and helps to retain moisture, which helps prevent wrinkles. Another advantage of a silk pillowcase is its flat surface, which helps reduce pressure on the face and prevent wrinkles. If you have sensitive skin, a silk pillowcase is the perfect solution.

While no study has been done to prove the effectiveness of silk pillowcases as wrinkle prevention products, a few common recommendations can help you avoid unpleasant signs of aging. Sleeping on your side and pushing the face forward when sleeping on your side can reinforce these movements and cause wrinkles. You may also want to purchase contoured pillowcases to change the position in which you sleep. The pillowcase can also contain bacteria and oil from your skin, which can cause acne. Avoiding this can make your skin look fresher and younger-looking.

A silk pillowcase also helps to prevent wrinkles because the material is slippery and smooth. Unlike other materials, silk doesn’t cause skin irritation. You may want to invest in a high-quality silk pillowcase to get the wrinkle-preventing benefits. The price range for high-quality pillows is very high, so you should be prepared to spend a bit of extra money on them. 

Skin-Soothing Relief

Silk pillowcases can help soothe skin. Because silk is less absorbent than cotton, it helps the skin retain its natural oils and moisture. Moreover, silk pillowcases will not clog pores, as cotton does. Silk pillowcases can help you get rid of acne by reducing the occurrence of pimples. But, they will not stop you from using skincare products. If you’re suffering from acne or you have other problems with the skin, you should see a dermatologist.

Silk is also hypoallergenic, which means that it doesn’t cause allergic reactions. Its smooth, breathable texture reduces friction between the textile and the skin, which can aggravate skin problems. Silk pillowcases also keep your hair soft and manageable, allowing it to maintain its blowout look all night long. Silk pillowcases can provide complete relief for dry, flaky skin.

Silk pillowcases are an excellent way to reduce the amount of dust mites you breathe while sleeping. Allergens in the air can cause allergies and disrupt sleep. Silk is a natural protective layer. Silk pillowcases are made from 100% mulberry silk. They can range in price from $25 to $90 for a standard pillowcase. However, silk pillowcases are a great investment for your skin.

A Cleaner Sleep

If you’re prone to allergies, sleeping on silk pillowcases could help you get a cleaner night’s rest. Since it’s naturally hypoallergenic and dust mite-resistant, silk is a safer option for sleeping. Using a silk pillowcase can also prevent the development of allergies and other skin conditions caused by microbes. Silk is also naturally antimicrobial, which means it’s resistant to dirt, mold, and fungi.

Silk pillowcases also help reduce the accumulation of dust and other allergens. Because silk fibers are naturally hypoallergenic, they’re a smart choice for people with sensitive skin. Silk pillowcases also tend to regulate temperature, so you’re less likely to have an uncomfortable night’s sleep if you have a silk pillowcase. And because silk is also breathable, you’ll have less to worry about your pillow rubbing against your skin. In addition, silk pillowcases also contribute to a cleaner sleep by helping you sleep with fewer flips.

Silk has several other advantages that make it a better choice for pillows than other fabrics. It is a natural anti-allergenic and can be beneficial for both hair and skin. It can also help prevent hair breakage and tangles. It can also reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. This can help people with sensitive skin get a cleaner night’s sleep. A cleaner sleep is a good thing, so you should definitely invest in a silk pillowcase. You should also try to rotate your mattress for a cleaner sleep.

The Right Temperature

The Right Temperature when sleeping on silk pillow cases is more than just wrinkle-free skin. Sleeping on a smoother material helps to slow down the passing of time. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase keeps your body temperature cooler while you sleep, which prevents the development of embarrassing pillowcase lines. Silk also promotes healthier skin and hair. It is easy to get comfortable on a silk pillowcase.

While it may seem difficult, washing silk pillowcases can be a simple process. The best thing to do is place them in a mesh laundry bag before washing them. Always use a gentle detergent and avoid washing them in hot water, which may damage the fibers. Avoid using fabric softener, as it may disintegrate the silk fibers. In addition to the proper temperature, always line dry silk pillowcases to avoid wrinkles.

The Right Temperature when sleeping on silk pillow cases should be around 73 degrees. Silk regulates body temperature and is breathable, meaning it will help you stay cool. Silk is also naturally cooling, reducing the need for flipping your pillow every morning. If you want to keep your pillowcase cool and fresh, silk is the best choice. There are several other benefits of using silk pillowcases.


There are many benefits of sleeping on silk pillowcases. It’s an affordable way to try out the benefits of silk on your skin and hair. A silk pillowcase can even improve your skin’s appearance over time. This article will discuss some of the benefits of sleeping on silk pillowcases and why they may be a better choice for you than traditional cotton pillowcases. Also, keep in mind that people with allergic reactions to silk should avoid using 40% silk to 60% polyester textiles.


Everything You Need To Know About Throw Pillows: Sizes, Shapes, and More

types of pillow

When shopping for a throw pillow, one must consider the shape of the pillow and the size. Throw pillows come in different shapes, including Square, Bolster, Lumbar, and Round. In order to choose a proper size, one must consider the manufacturer’s process and make sure that the pillow is manufactured in the right way. A little knowledge can go a long way.

Here are some common sizes:


The most common shape of pillows is the square. You can find other shapes, such as lumbar and bolster, as well. Using the larger size of the insert, which should be one to two inches larger than the cover, creates a more voluminous effect. You can also try combining a square pillow with two or more lumbar pillows for a more eclectic look.

If you don’t have a huge budget, you can also opt to purchase standard throw pillows. These are suitable for every room and can be layered with a cushy piece of furniture to create a unique look. If you have a small space or a limited budget, you can choose to throw pillows that are only slightly larger or smaller than the original size. Then, you can use the extra space for extra pillows on your sofa or bed and you should also learn how to fluff a pillow if you want your pillows to last longer.

To select the right size of pillows, consider the size of the furniture in the room. Larger sofas and chairs are more suitable for square pillows. The average throw pillow size for a large sofa is approximately 16″ by 20″. A smaller pillow, however, may not look right on such a piece of furniture. On the other hand, smaller patterned pillows will look great with larger solid pillows in the background. To determine what size throw pillows should be, use the height of the back of the sofa or chair when choosing the right size of a pillow.


The standard throw pillow bolster is an extremely versatile item. They are long, narrow, and are similar in shape to neck rolls. However, a bolster pillow is much larger. Most bolster pillows are used for decorative purposes. Nevertheless, if you want to use them for practical purposes, you can consider purchasing extra pillows for the sofa or bed. 

They are typically 16 inches, 18 inches, or 20 inches. Although you can get larger versions, they are easiest to replace the covers. Round pillows are less common than square pillows but can balance the straight lines of other pillows. Standard throw pillows come in different shapes, but the square pillow is always the most common and versatile. Bolster pillows are used to prop up the arm and are most common on beds.


A lumbar pillow is an excellent choice for back support. While the standard lumbar pillow size is 14″ x 22″, you can also find larger pillows that support the entire back. The sizes vary, however, and some stores offer pillows that are as large as 16” x 24” or as small as 12″ x 20″.

If you want a lumbar standard throw pillow with a more traditional design, you may want to look for one that is cylindrical in shape. Both are designed to provide back support and are often used as decorative accents. You may also use a bolster alone on a chair or as additional cushioning on a daybed. Depending on what you are looking for, you can find a lumbar pillow that matches your decor.

Depending on the size of your seating space, the lumbar standard throw pillow should be the appropriate depth. If you have a narrow sofa, the lumbar pillow should be at least 16” in depth. The height should not exceed the back of your sofa.

There are many options when choosing a standard throw pillow. You can choose from many different materials such as cotton, polyester, leather, and velvet. Each material has its own feel, look, and care requirements. If you have a pet, you should opt for a machine-washable pillow instead of a specialty throw pillow made of a synthetic fabric. Also, some throw pillows are meant to be dry cleaned and should not be exposed to direct sunlight.


Standard throw pillows are round and can be filled with down, polyester, or microfiber. Some are decorative and sold in packs of two; others are sold individually. Depending on the type of filling, you can choose a pillow with a high level of support or a low fill weight. If you are buying several round pillows, you may want to look for ones that come in pairs and offer price breaks. Buying several pillows for a single room is also a good idea, as you’ll get more bang for your buck.

Decorative pillows are a great addition to any room. They can be used anywhere, including in bed and on a sofa. Many are machine-washable and can be spot-cleaned. They also feature a soft, skin-friendly fabric and fiberfill, which means they’re easy to clean and don’t get ruined by moisture. Most of these pillows are available separately. Regardless of the type you purchase, you’ll have no trouble finding one that fits your room and personal style. They will also help you to sleep better and comfortably.

If you’re not sure whether or not a round pillow is right for your space, consider its size. Round pillows are usually around 18″ to 22″ in diameter. Although they’re not as popular as square pillows, they can balance the lines of other pillows in your space.

The size of your decorative pillow will depend on the fabric you choose. For example, a 20-inch pillow can be made from a 21-inch square fabric, including 1/2 inch seam allowance. Likewise, a round pillow cannot be made with a square pillow because the filling will pull the sides inward. In such cases, you’ll want to measure from corner to corner. In the case of a zipped pillow, you’ll have to unzip the insert.


There are a few things to consider before purchasing a standard throw pillow. The material used for the fill should also be a factor. Most down pillows are filled with feathers and down-alternative fill is often less expensive. Down is also more expensive than polyester, so make sure you check the cost before buying a pillow. Luckily, down-alternative fill does not have the same drawbacks as down, so you can save money and get a more luxurious pillow.

Why is caffeine body exfoliation essential for your skin


In recent times, coffee, as a beauty ingredient has garnered much admiration. Whether you sip it or apply it to your skin, coffee, with its countless benefits will surely amaze you. The rich and dark coffee beans, apart from absorbing one in their robust aroma, are also brimmed with antioxidants. They are known for their ample benefits on the skin like delayed aging, calming effects, reduced inflammation, among others.

From the kitchen shelves to beauty cabinets, coffee beauty recipes have topped the beauty trend chart. More or less, a tribe of caffeine-obsessed beauty enthusiasts has increasingly stirred the market with their DIY homemade recipes to organic commercial products.

These caffeine-infused body oils and lotions, coffee scrubs, coffee hair oil, or coffee masks have won various eyeballs. Not only of their effectiveness but also because of their rich aromatic indulgence. One of such personal care brands that have fascinated people with its plush caffeine indulgence is mcaffeine.

Caffeine body exfoliation with mcaffeine products- an essential routine

Many of us fail to take care of the skin below our neck. Aside from giving attention to our facial skin, it is crucial to ensure that the other parts of the body are equally taken care of. Just like cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing hold a necessary regime in our skincare routine, body exfoliation, too should occupy the same significant routine.

Routine exfoliation is necessary to get rid of the dead skin cells, unclog the pores, and enhance blood circulation. Looking out for natural exfoliators like sugar, coffee, lemon, and other botanical ingredients can be useful as they gently wear away the skin impurities without causing any damages.

mcaffeine body scrub

When it is about exfoliation, whether for the face or body, I mostly prefer coffee-based products. First, because it’s totally a natural ingredient and is known for its abundant benefits. And secondly, I just love coffee!

Mcaffeine is one such brand that I rely on when it comes to choosing caffeine-based products. The pure indulgence of coffee and chocolate from mcaffeine is truly a feast for your skin. And the aroma? Oh! Don’t nag me for not warning you that you might end up eating your skin, or the products. Hehe…!!

Read on!

Mcaffeine’s Coffee Body Scrub

You will fall in love at first sight with this body scrub. Sturdy packaging, the goodness of coffee and coconut, an aroma-filled bottle, and a cute wooden spoon to scoop out your portion- why would a sane person not fall for this beauty? This naked and raw body scrub is easy to use and leaves an immediate smoothness of coffee. The powdery scrub rests comfortably onto wet skin and gently scours dead cells and residue clogging the pores, and leaves the skin velvety soft.

Mcaffeine’s choco body lotion

The chocolaty aroma of this body lotion will enhance your mood every time you squeeze dollops from the bottle. Not only does this body lotion deep hydrates and moisturizes the skin but the goodness of cocoa will give an overall soothing experience. If you could, you will literally want to eat your skin. Trust me!

Mcaffeine scalp and hair oil

The delightful aroma of this hair oil will, for sure, transport you to a different world. Apart from stimulating hair growth and nourishing the scalp, this oil is also a great mood booster. Relax, rejuvenate, and soak yourself in the luxuriant of coffee as you take a deep reposeful scalp massage. You can include this scalp and hair oil in your weekly hair care regime.

Mindful beauty practices by mcaffeine

A lot of times, we wonder which products or cosmetics will be a good choice for our body skin- remove the dead cells or exfoliation, or for moisturization. Instead of just relying on mainstream cosmetic products or purchasing based on an excellent ad-copy or pretty photograph, a skin-conscious person should always check out the ingredients before investing or trusting a brand.

Ever since I have transitioned to clean beauty- free from SLS and paraben and animal testing, I have found incredible changes in my skin. Struggling with distressed skin throughout the teenage years of my life taught me not to mindlessly trust any beauty brands easily. Rather, scrutinize each and every ingredient thoroughly, know their impact on skin, and then rely on that brand.

A sustainable beauty brand, mcaffeine with its 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and Peta certified tag caught my interest. The products are FDA approved and are dermatologically tested with no SLS, parabens, silicones & mineral oils.

Have you tried any of mcaffeine’s products? Which is your favorite?
