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


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)
