Which Packaged Coconut Water Is Best?

DABUR Real Activ 100% Tender Coconut Water VS Raw Pressery Coconut Water with Aloe Vera and Lemon

We all know how important our health is. Whatever the goal of your life, nothing is achievable without a healthy body and soul. There is so much chaos in our life; We all are running after money and success at the cost of our health. Our ancestors were much healthier than us as they were living a very disciplined and healthy life. But now things have changed a lot. Our priorities are different than theirs. Now we are living a materialistic life.

This Covid19 Pandemic situation has raised a big question in our mind; Are we really healthy? Our outer shell cannot describe our health. Your inner shield called Immunity should be strong enough to fight with any outside enemies. If you will go through the reports of Covid 19 survivors, you will know that their strong immunity has saved them.

So dear readers, the entire above lecture is pointing towards the importance of health. All we need is a systematic lifestyle that includes healthy food, proper sleep, regular exercise, mental peace, and inner satisfaction.

Today’s topic is about the purest and healthy drink “COCONUT WATER”. Coconut water is nutritious, full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, contains hydrating properties, controls blood sugar, and therefore good for diabetic patients too, good for kidney stones and healthy skin, increases energy level and so on, the list of coconut water benefits are huge.

It is always better to have a natural or real form of Coconut water, but sometimes it is not possible to carry it everywhere also, it is not available everywhere. Therefore many companies have launched packed coconut water in the market. Though some of the brands are a little costlier than the real ones these bottles are handy and can be carried easily.

I have tried 2 of the brands “Real” and “RAW”. Today I am going to share my experience with them. But, first of all, let us see, what are the differences between them?

DABUR Real Activ 100% Tender Coconut Water
  1. Flavor: Basic
  2. Ingredients: Tender coconut water 
  3. Quantity: 200ml
  4. Price (single bottle): Rs.45
  5. Preservatives: INS 234
  6. Sugar: No added sugar or flavour
  7. Straw attached: Yes



















Raw Pressery Coconut Water with Aloe Vera and Lemon
  1. Flavor: Basic 
  2. Ingredients: Coconut water (98%), Aloe Vera (1%), Lemon (1%)
  3. Quantity: 200ml
  4. Price (single bottle): Rs.60
  5. Preservatives: No 
  6. Straw attached: No
  7. Sugar: No added sugar 


















Above all the information regarding the products is extracted from the information written on the bottles. 

I personally like both of them, though the Raw is a little costlier than the Real. The best part is there is no added sugar which keeps the taste real. Now you can decide which one is better for you. They both are handy and can be kept for six months. You can order them online too.  You can save a little if you buy a pack of 6 or 12.

Well, that’s it for today. See you guys soon with another experience. Stay connected.

DIY Homemade Face Scrub For Normal To Dry Skin


DIY-facescrub

Hello beautiful readers, I hope you are having a wonderful time with your loved ones. Here in India, it is the rainy season. Monsoon starts in June and lasts until mid-September. Where most of the people love rain and enjoy this season, I personally don’t like it. Where this season brings you a big relief and a smile on your face after hot summery days, on the other hand, it brings humid climate, heavy rains, strong winds, floods, leakages, drainages, traffic, etc. 

This weather creates an ideal environment for infectious diseases like viral fever, stomach infections, colds, flues, etc. We also go through so many fungal and bacterial skin infections. Due to the humid climate so, many of us get acne and pimple-related problems. So in that situation, it is really important to take extra care of your skin.

Today, I am going to share a DIY homemade face scrub. It is ideal for normal to dry skin but, oily skin people can also give it a try. Face scrubs really help you to extract the extra amount of oil from your skin. 

SO, Let’s see how to make a DIY homemade face scrub.

What ingredients do you need for DIY face scrub?

1/2 tablespoon Sandalwood (Chandan) powder (a bit coarse)
1/2 tablespoon Orange peel powder 
1/2 tablespoon Honey
1/2 tablespoon Aloe Veera gel
1-2 tablespoon Milk

How to prepare DIY Face Scrub?

Mix all the above ingredients and make a semi-liquidy paste. You can adjust the quantity of milk to make a perfect paste. 
Now keep the paste aside for 5 minutes. 

How to apply Face Scrub?

Wet your face and apply the scrub all over the face. Now rub your face slowly in a circular motion. Do not be harsh on your skin. 

For how long should I scrub my face?

Do not scrub your face for more than 2 minutes. Excess scrubbing can damage your skin and also cause acne.

Do I need to use face Scrub daily?

Once or twice a week is enough to use a face scrub.

Are homemade scrubs bad?

Not at all, even the Homemade or DIY face scrubs are best to use as you know what all ingredients are being used in it. Also, you can skip the ingredients which are allergic to your skin.

Now, the most important question is

How helpful is this Face scrub for your skin?

While choosing the ingredients, I keep in mind all the ingredients should be mild on my skin. All the above ingredients in this face scrub are full of antioxidants and, they contain anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antiseptic healing properties. These properties help to maintain the structure and elasticity of your skin. All the ingredients include effective exfoliating agents, which will help you remove all the dirt, blackheads, blemishes, dead skin, and unclog pores. It reduces the extra oil and helps to soothe your skin. This face scrub will help you to reduce inflammation and prevent from acne and pimples.

What else do you need? I hope all of your questions and doubts are cleared. Guys, give it a try, and do let me know your experience.

My first Covid-19 Vaccination Experience


covidvaccine-juzbaat.com

Yes, Now I am vaccinated with the first dose of the Covid 19 vaccine. I know I am a bit late to write this post regarding my experience with the vaccine as it happened in the last month of July. But I also know that this post is going to be helpful for those who are still confused or still thinking that whether they should get the vaccine or not. 

Like everyone out there I was also scared whether I should get the vaccine or not or better to say that I was a bit doubtful about it. Because I am going through an “autoimmune disorder” in which a part of the body gets inflamed and that’s why I was scared that my condition might get worse after the vaccine. 

If you remember, when the vaccine had launched the first time, every single media platform was flooded with real and fake news. And in that case, obviously, anybody can get confused. Even still there are lots of rumours regarding the Covid 19 vaccine. Therefore I decided better to wait and understand whether the people who are having some health issues or who are on medication should get the Jab or not. Till then we took all the required precautions which were suggested in this pandemic situation. And we are still taking those precautions after taking our first dose. 

Finally, when the doctors confirmed that everyone should go for the vaccine except for some of the chronic cases like people who are on heavy medications, I decided to book the slots for me and my husband.

But, my dear friends, it was not easy to book the slot in one attempt.  I had to try so many times for advance booking. A loophole I found with the website ‘Cowin’ as well as with the Application ‘Arogya Setu’ that, I was not able to book the slot in advance. I was only able to book the slot for the same day, as the options did not enable me to book the slot for any other day. Also, the App was only showing the paid centres for advance booking.

At last, as we were already late to get the vaccine and also to escape from the crowd we decided to get a paid slot. On the 08th of July 2021, I went to the Cowin website and booked 2 slots for both of us for the next day (09th July 2021). I booked a morning slot between 10 am to 11 am. I got a ‘Secret code’ which you need to tell at the centre and the payment needed to be paid at the centre itself.

The documents you need to add while booking is your Identity Proof which you should also carry with you to the centre. It has been suggested that to reach the centre before 15 minutes of your selected timings. We reached there before time. The name of the Centre was “Sarvodya Hospital Sec-19, Faridabad”. Fortunately, the arrangements were satisfactory. It was less crowded.

First, we went to the reception and they noted down our details and we were asked to wait till they call us. After 15 minutes they called us and asked for our Secret code and ID proof. Also, they asked us about the vaccine we were looking for. We went with the ‘Covidsheild’ and it cost us Rs. 780 each. We did the payment and took the slip to the room where the vaccination was going on. They were allowing 2 people at a time. 

There was a doctor and a nurse who did the vaccine process. And, taadaa, finally we were vaccinated. The people who are scared of the injections, let me tell you, nothing is scary; it is just a pinch which anyone can tolerate. 

Well, after that we were told to wait in another room for 15 minutes to see if any complications occur. We waited there for 15 minutes and came back home. We both have different experiences with the JAB. When they injected me, within a minute I felt a little heaviness in my arm but on the other hand, my husband didn’t. 

Covid-19 Vaccination Side-effects


Now we were at home and nothing happened till the evening. After 7’Oclock I started shivering and I was feeling so much cold, so I turned off the lights and fans and covered myself with a sheet and slept. After 2 hours I woke up and found myself in fever, my left hand was heavy and I was so tired, I did not eat anything and slept again. At the midnight I again woke up and I was sweating and I think my fever was around 103 degrees but till the morning my fever was fine but my hand was still affected. But in the afternoon I was again in the fever, and his time it was 101 degrees.  It was the last time of my fever and after that; I never get any fever again. But my hand took more than a week to get better. 

On the other hand, my husband didn’t get any fever but he was feeling a little tired and discomfort and that was only for a day. 

So, I hope it is clear, that everyone is having a different experience with the vaccine. It is all about your body. Some people are facing side effects and some are not. 

My story might sound scary for some of you, but it is absolutely fine as it was tolerable. Once in our lifetime, we all have gone through the fever and cold, it was just like that. Also, I did not take any medicine or pain killer for my fever. But if you feel you can take ‘Dolo 650 or Paracetamol'. 

At last, I would suggest you get vaccinated and if you are going through any medical conditions, ask your doctor first. Also, Please keep in mind that this Vaccine is not the surety that you will never get infected with Covid, but the vaccine will help you to heal faster. Therefore take all the precautions after getting vaccinated too.
