Love is a strong word. A difficult word. A confusing word. A word that’s easier said than done.
But it is also a compassionate word. A joyful word. An exhilarating word. And above all, a word that brings people closer together.
For as long as the existence of time, we have made it a point to make everyone else’s business, our business. It’s almost as if humans were gifted with the instinct to sense when someone is about to make a choice that brings them happiness, and then make it their mission to “put you on the right path” with their unsolicited opinions. Yeah, those aren’t welcome either.
And the instance we most commonly see this happening with is the choices you make for your own body and what makes you feel beautiful. When an individual - be it across gender or sex - decides to undergo any kind of cosmetic treatment, the first reaction is to criticise and ridicule, without a second’s thought to what it means for the individual themselves.
But this is a story about love. This is when love is easier said than done — when you know what it means to love yourself and what it means to feel beautiful in your own skin, but to have to fight that societal battle to stand your ground.
Let’s not forget, though, we also did say that love is something that brings people closer together. It’s because of the same love that today we see a hopeful shift towards more inclusive beauty — where we slowly but steadily grow to appreciate and admire beauty in all its forms, in all its genders.
The Kaya Life is your forever Cupid, not just on the occasion of Valentine’s Day, but every day. We are your partners in giving life to the thought that #BeautifulIsYou — both inside out.
To work its magic on the inside, our special team of 100+ expert dermatologists and skin care specialists curate treatments from over 60+ luxury skin care products, having 18 years of understanding Indian skin unlike any other.

We also understand that sometimes you may need some help to feel more like yourself through cosmetics that aren’t “natural” in its form — Botox and Fillers being some examples. But love is about acceptance in every form and we’re bringing to the forefront a few pampering skincare treatments and products for you to embrace without judgement. #MyLoveMyWay is the belief that will take you all the way!
Treatments for Young, Firm, and Glowing Skin: Profhilo, Botox, and Fillers
- Profhilo: Made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA), these are injections that stimulate collagen production to build new cells and give you younger, firmer, and more hydrated skin
- Botox: A protein that stems from Botulinum toxin, Botox injections are used to visibly reduce signs of ageing such as wrinkles. The effects typically last 3-4 months
- Fillers: Dermal fillers or soft tissue fillers are composed of a few compounds including Hyaluronic Acid to fill up areas of the skin to make them look more plump and reduce fine lines
Anti Aging Products to Reduce Signs of Ageing: RetinoBoost Serum and Antox Vit C Serum
- RetinoBoost: A combination of Retinol, Niacinamide, and Matrixyl 3000 to reverse early signs of aging. Retinoids help produce more collagen to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Matrixyl 3000 and Niacinamide work in similar ways and also help keep moisture intact. It’s a great over-the-counter face treatment for glowing skin
- Antox Vit-C Serum: One of Kaya's best sellers in skin serums, it is rich in the goodness of vitamin C that helps fight free radicals. These free-flowing molecules result in oxidative stress which can alter and cause damage to your skin cells. Oxidative stress can be a cause of prolonged exposure to the sun and its UV rays, which can make your skin age faster to develop fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant that can significantly protect against UV damage to keep your skin feeling fresh and youthful
Treatment for Smooth, Hairless Skin: Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal or laser hair reduction works using heat from a laser light that destroys hair follicles under the skin. Destroying hair from its follicles ensures that hair grows back much slower and when it does, that it grows as fine as “baby hair” — as Cupid, you know we can really appreciate this one. The results are long-term to leave your skin feeling smooth perpetually.
Of all the kinds of love, self love is the most powerful. Self love is unabashedly selfish and we love self love! It’s when you start to take care of yourself and glow on the inside that it automatically shines on the outside. It’s when others start to see your light and soak it in to appreciate you for your true self. So, be selfish and love yourself for a change. Because to love yourself in your skin is is to mean that #BeautifulIsYou.
And if you ever need Cupid, we’re just a click away. Book an appointment online here to treat yourself with the best self-care beauty products and skincare treatments. #MyLoveMyWay is your mantra today and everyday!
- Flip flops
Perhaps, wearing flip flops is the best part about the rainy season. They are best suited for a day out on informal wear. It is not something that’s scowled upon anymore. Flips Flops dry fast and are a complete fuss free choice in footwear during light rains. Also, they add a colourful effect to your entire ensemble, pepping your entire personality instantly; that’s just perfect for a stylish rainy season. Ensure you choose a zany print with a good grasp. We do not want you falling down those stairs now!
There is nothing more terrible than being trapped outside in the rains only to find ourselves damp and humid for the rest of the day. That is why we suggest a timeless pair of shorts. Ensure you wear dark coloured ones with fabrics that are not see-through. Hence, choose from fairly thick fabrics in synthetic blends that can dry quicker and are adaptable too. You can pair them up with a blazer for work, a modest tee for fun or an elegant blouse for a night out. Keep up with the monsoon feel with pretty shorts so you do not have to care about dirtying the edges of your trousers.
- Waterproof Handbags
You do not want your much-loved leather bag to lose its splendour during monsoons. Show some compassionate love for those exquisite leather bags and pick something a little more appropriate like plastic totes in solid and transparent colours. For a night out during this season, buy some patent leather clutches that are ultra-trendy. Bid your leather bags a goodbye for these three months and go for trendy colourful waterproof bags.
Monsoons are incomplete without the typical “Gumboots”. Perfect for a regular walker, they safeguard your much-loved trousers from any puddle or crater. They come with a quick-dry knitted nylon lining, making it an effortless affair with the boots to be worn every single day for three whole months, and it also has a rubber out-sole for a strong grip. Gumboots are chic, comfortable and a perfect bet to beat the rains stylishly.
Keep yourself up to date by picking monsoon basics like raincoats as they go beyond their basic use. Select your preferred trend before you buy your monsoon gear, as rain coats are available in neon colours, polka dotted and even transparent. We say raincoats are one of the most fabulous ways to keep yourself dry, fashionably all through these unpredictable monsoons.
Your wardrobe is incomplete if you do not have a trendy umbrella for monsoons. Pretty, trendy umbrellas are available in all shapes and sizes. You can get a frilly one or one with funky prints and there are ones which have shimmer too.
So time to gear up and go for these timeless trends and have a whale of time this monsoon season. Don’t you agree?!

Chemical peel is a solution applied on the face, hands, or the neck to purify the skin and improve the appearance. When you apply the solution it generally blisters for a while, and then peels off, leaving the skin smoother and less wrinkled. If you’re not keen on buying one, there are a lot of home remedies for a chemical peel.
This article will help you make chemical peel at home because there’s no doubt that natural chemical peel is way better and safer than the ones that are available in stores.
In fact, chemical peeling at home is more convenient and simple when compared to going to a parlor. We tell you how.
Making a face peel at home is easy. Below is a list of ingredients you’ll need:
- For a natural chemical peel, you’ll need a small cucumber.
- 1 tablespoon of unflavored gelatin.
- A few drops or 1/4 spoon of meat tenderizer.
- A pinch of powdered cinnamon.Keep some water handy.
Follow the procedure given below to make the perfect home chemical peel:
Step 1: Take a bowl and place the sliced cucumber in it. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cucumber and wait for it to dissolve. If it doesn’t dissolve, just use water instead.
Step 2: Now sprinkle some meat tenderizer and cinnamon powder over the mixture. Mix well till you get a pasty end result. You may add as much water as needed to make this paste.
Step 3: Apply the paste on your face, arms, or neck. Be very careful if you plan to apply this paste near your sensitive areas.
Step 4: Keep the mixture on for 15-20 minutes, and once it has dried well, start peeling it off from your chin region first.
If you’ve got an acne problem, crush an aspirin or two, and add it to this mixture. Aspirin contains salicylic acid, which helps in dissolving blackheads.
You can finish by applying moisturizer. But if you’re treating scars, apply a mixture of lavender oil and vitamin E oil for best results.
The best at-home chemical peel is made using natural and fresh ingredients. A few other items that you can use are:
- Papaya and pineapple: If you don’t want to use the meat tenderizer then you can use these two fruits as they contain papain and bromelain. Using pureed fruits in place of meat tenderizer works perfectly too.
- Pumpkin: This fruit has great fruit acids, which are highly beneficial for a chemical peel. Make sure you use steamed pumpkin so that it dissolves well.
- Avocados: Avocados have high moisturising properties and acid content that make the chemical peel more authentic and effective.
- Tomatoes: If used in the form of puree or juice, tomatoes will be really beneficial in making the skin smooth and dirt free. Tomatoes contain citric and malic acid – both of which are great for facemasks.
- Sugarcane: Sugarcane is again, high in acid, and can be used to make an effective chemical peel.
A lot fruits of and vegetables have acid in it. You can try other variations too like apple, orange, wine, curd, lemon, grapes, banana, etc.
Very few chemical skin peel products are reliable. If you don’t have the time to make the skin peel at home, you can opt for Kaya’s Intense Clarity Peel. In six sessions you are left with visibly smoother and radiant skin. This treatment lightens marks and lines, reduces pigmentation, and restores and revives skin firmness.
The primary contents of the facial peel provided by Kaya include glycolic acid, lactic acid and kojic acid. The mask is made according to your skin type, and left on for a duration that’s suitable.
Kaya’s Intense Clarity Peel treatment is now available for a wide variety of skin types. Reach out to your closest Kaya Skin Clinic, and speak to a dermatologist on the team to learn more.
A dress is every woman’s ultimate wardrobe essential. From flowing maxis to cute off-shoulder floral print dresses, you can choose from a wide range of looks. And the best part is, you can team these dresses with a host of accessories to make sure you turn heads whenever you step outside.
But most importantly, flaunting that summer dress is the perfect way to show off your glowing, radiant skin, which you’ve kept covered and well moisturised all winter.
Here are some simple ideas to look like an absolute scorcher in your summer dress-
- Stylize With The Right Accessories
The choice of accessories depends on the occasion. Casual summer dresses can be teamed with denim, shrugs, and leather jackets for a stylish ensemble. When going out with friends in the morning, wear a hat that complements your dress and adds to the overall look. Avoid jewellery, but if you absolutely must, go with delicate silver or gold ornaments.
Slip on some embellished footwear to add more colour and vibrancy to your look.
- Step Out With Flawless Skin
Tanning and sun allergies are common problems during summer, and too much exposure to sunlight can damage your skin beyond repair. Make sure to apply sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. Also, drink a lot of water, and eat fresh fruits and veggies to keep your skin hydrated.
Another problem that you face with wearing summer dresses is frequenting your beautician every 15-20 days to get unwanted body hair removed. You could instead say goodbye to those expensive parlour visits by opting for convenient laser hair reduction sessions at Kaya Skin Clinic.
Laser hair reduction is gentle on the skin and a permanent solution for unwanted body hair. Kaya Skin Clinic’s certified beauty therapists use advanced laser technology to deal with unwanted hair from your body. Laser hair reduction is suitable for all skin types and has zero side effects.
Quick Summer Hacks
Summer is the time when makeup becomes a real hassle. Avoid too much makeup and go for a minimalistic approach.
- Use an oil-absorbing base before applying makeup to avoid melting. Keep in mind that too much powder will give you a chalky appearance.
- Don’t forget to carry a facial mist when you’re travelling to keep your skin cool and moisturized.
- Go easy on the foundation and use cream-based eye shadows and blushes to ensure your makeup lasts.
- Avoid dark colours, and if you’re applying mascara, make sure it’s a waterproof one. Liquid liners are better for the summers than pencils, as these last longer.
Now that you know how to get that perfect summer look, slip into your favourite summer dress and watch everyone turn green with envy every time you step out into the sun.

We have always encouraged you to head to the gym and we know how difficult it is to take out time for it. At times you have to hit the gym in the morning before you head to work. While there are times you have to go to the gym right before a night out. So how to do you still manage to look good after you have been all sweaty and look messy?
We have few suggestions wherein you can still work out and look good post your rigorous cardio!
- Tie up your hair while at the gym. This way it will not pick up too much of sweat. Have a towel handy to wipe off excess of sweat. Keep your hands off from your sweaty face as it can lead to acne. Also you can blot off the sweat using wipes or tissues.
- Post your work out, loosen up your hair and let it down. Let it breathe as it will reduce the oil production and dry up the sweat on your scalp. If your gym has a shower facility, head for it and just rinse your hair.
- Use disposable body wipes which are easily available at most chemist stores. These wipes get rid of excess oil from your skin. Most of them are gentle and can be used on your face, while others can be used all over your body.
- Use a good moisturizer post your work out. Your skin gets stretched and it needs to be hydrated. Applying a gentle moisturiser will prevent stretch marks from appearing. Exercising makes you lose weight and tone your muscles which can lead to stretch marks. Kaya’s Intense Hydration Body Lotion contains Shea and Kokum Butter that restores essential oils to skin that is dry. Its 24-hour moisture lock formula prevents moisture loss all day long, leaving your skin soft and smooth to touch. To know more: http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/intense-hydration-body-lotion
- Using a foot deodorizer will make you feel clean as it will absorb the sweat built-up on your feet. You get it in spray or powder form and can apply to your feet as it will kill the bacteria and germs. This will also keep the odour away.
- Head for a shower post work out. Always keep a gym bag stocked with your basic requirements- a change of fresh clothes, clean towel, shampoo and moisturiser.
- Do not forget to apply a sunscreen post workout. It is important to prevent damage from sun and prevent premature aging. Always keep it in your gym bag. Apply before you head for your workout and reapply post it as well. Kaya’s Daily Use Sunscreen SPF 15 protects against both UV-A and UV-B rays while also sufficiently hydrating the skin without making it sticky. With Ultra Boot Star rating of 5, it offers the highest possible UV-A protection against tanning and ageing due to sun exposure.

- Hydrate yourself after the workout. Your body will be dehydrated and sipping on water will help replenish lost fluid. It will also help prevent cramping and benefit your skin.
Avoid being uncomfortable
The general view is, too much of skin show is a turn off. It is one of the worst mistakes in any fashion book. Show off your skin as long as you are comfortable. You don’t want to be tugging your dress. You may get attention but trust us it will not be positive attention. If you want to show off your body, make it look sexy than flashy. Wear a silky top with a pair of skinny jeans; team a mini dress with ankle high boots. Being comfortable should be your main priority.
Avoid getting stuck in the past
Wearing classic or vintage outfits has been always followed by women. Even we agree that it is a good investment. But the issue is as you grow older you go into the comfort zone wearing the same old outfits. It will be a great idea to if you could stylishly pair old styles with the new ones. Also, your body undergoes lot of change so it is advisable to pick outfits that will suit your body type.
Trying to carry a fit that does nothing to your figure is a common mistake most of us make. Avoid covering yourself in baggy or loose fitting outfits or trying to fit into a size that is too small for you. Your dress needs to flatter your body curves and not go against it. A fitted outfit will make you look and feel confident. With right accessories you will surely make heads turn.
Wearing too much of bling
Wear too much of bling and you will be mistaken for a Christmas tree. To avoid this mistake go easy with jewellery. Adorn delicate pieces of jewellery for everyday wear. Mix and match your jewellery to create the right look. If you are wearing huge dangling earrings, then do away with a necklace. Wear a simple watch or delicate bracelet to beautify your hands.
Wearing wrong lingerie
This is the number one fashion blunder done by most women. It is always neglected leading to major blunders. In fact at times it messes up the entire outfit. At times the bra size or fit is all wrong. It is essential to get yourself measured once in a year to know your correct size. Wearing a strappy bra on a racer back top spoils the entire look of the outfit. It will be advisable to wear a strapless bra to enhance the look. If you wearing a sheer or white outfit, it is best to wear a nude colour lingerie to give you a good silhouette.
