HOW TO STORE YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS?

Just like all other products, beauty products also have a life. There is a shelf life & period after opening which means life of the product, once the lid of the product is opened for use.

You can find a product’s (PAO) Period After Opening, mentioned at the back of the product, like this:



Usually products do not expire after PAO because the way you handle your makeup in general can extend its shelf life. If you take care of your products, they can last more than expiry date being safe to use.

Other than this, there are several different environmental conditions & things that can destroy your product like heat, sunlight & oxidation. Specially when you use beauty products that contain skin care ingredients in them be destroyed before time, if not stored properly.

Heat & Sunlight can change the texture of the product. In extreme cases it can cause bacteria to grow inside. This phenomena is commonly observed in Wonder Wax (Cold Wax). It gets watery & less tacky if kept in heat. Also, it gets too thick & less sticky if kept in very cold weather.

Oxidation is the phenomena where chemical change takes place in a product due to coming in contact with air. Oxidation can change the chemical formula of the product, resulting colour & fragrance change of the product. In extreme cases the product can even dry out & become tacky. It is important to close the lid of the products well after use.

The following products are Extra Sensitive & need to be stored in a dry & cool place, away from heat & sunlight:

  1. Natural Oils
  2. Serums
  3. Anti-Aging Products
  4. Sunscreens
  5. Foundations

  7. Organic Creams
  8. Glosses

SAMMAR SHAH’S HEARTFELT PAINFUL EULOGY IN THE LOVING MEMORY OF HER SISTER MAHNOOR SHABIR

She feels she owes everyone a eulogy for Mahnoor’s passing away, Sammar writes, “Mahnoor’s relapse was discovered only 2 days before she was due to return to LUMS to continue her studies & while last time she did not shed a single tear, this time she wept inconsolably. Regardless, she was admitted & she fought to her last. A cycle of chemotherapy left her depleted of her immunity & her lung contracted pneumonia. She was admitted to the ICU & then put on ventilators. She survived for 10 days then. Her lungs collapsed first & then organ failure happened & finally, a cardiac arrest took her life. I know that she fought till the end for when my father excused himself when asked to sign the ventilator consent form, I got to spent minutes in private with her. I told her what was happening & that she had to fight a little longer.”

Lying there gasping for breath, she gave me a thumbs up. She fought but then the fight became too much to ask of any human being.

“What can I tell you about Mahnoor? For once I am at a loss for words. She was like that… She could render the gushing of the river to silence. Her laughter was loud, her emotions intense, her personality was extreme. Her charm was her polarity. Her laugh could set birds to flight & her temper could ebb lightening. She was smart & intuitive & before the diagnosis, she knew she had cancer & before reports, she knew she had relapsed. What can I tell you about that girl? She was magic with the frame of a fawn & the strength of 10 men. She fought for what she believed & acquired everything by pursuit & not by privilege.”

She bore the burden of this infliction with grace & dancing at her cousin’s wedding she did not look cancer-stricken.

“She endured the side affects of treatment with ease & confidence. Her goodness & sense showed in her reclusiveness & she was the beloved of God. She was my baby sister… Our little Mahnoor! This day all I hear is white noise & nothing anyone says makes sense. I can only hear the rustle of poplars at Kakul Road & the din-din of cars. But any words of sense I can not register. Sometimes I go to your whatsapp, hoping to catch you like I would when you would not reply. Sometimes I call your name to hear how it sounds to the ear but all I can hear is ringing. I know it will get better. We will learn to endure. Your parents are happy your suffering is over but they miss you. We all miss you. You have been coming to me in my dreams sometimes asking about Shahmeer & sometimes telling me to feed the fish.”

I hope you are not lonely. I hope you have met Abu. And I hope you are together happily forgetting the pains you have both endured.

“But remember us. We are sick with grief. Your parents are sick with grief but they’re trying to be brave like you. You are the bravest person I know. It has been an honor to know you. Meri jaan! Mera bacha! Who used to come to me and talk about the things you could say only on the opioids they gave you for pain relief. When I would tell you the way of the world you would say ‘No Sammy, I want to know what you think. What is your opinion?’ & that made me feel so special. Mahnoor all our childhood flashes in my mind in a vague blur & when I see your friends, I feel your presence amongst them laughing with your mouth open & clapping your hands.”

I wish you could know how the entire world took your story so personally & wept for you.

“I wish you could know how much you are loved. I wish you could tell Shireen that it’s okay. That she is still a hero for giving you her cells. I wish you could tell Daud & Ismail, how brave they are. I wish you could kiss Baba & Ami goodbye. Your Versace noir still lingers in the air. It is a smell we will never forget. I wish you could tell Ami every little thing that bothers you & not bear in silence. I wish you could tell Yousuf that our suicide squad is still intact but most of all, I wish you know how special & beautiful and magical you are. Shahmeer asks about you every single night & he still prays you will get better. I don’t know how to tell him his favorite is gone. I will miss our late night movies & foodpanda. I love you my dearest, darling. You are my child. I wish you could still root for Tender Heart. Your friends come to see you every day & they came to say goodbye, just like we all did. I guess it’s goodbye. You will forever live in our hearts. I wish we meet again someday.”

Mahnoor, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy and peaceful.

“Snuggling with me under the blankets you told me you did not want to die but you have left nothing incomplete. But there is one dream that you dreamt the past 1 year, of a cancer foundation to fund treatment of poor cancer patients and we will see that to completion. I promise we will see that many cancer patients have the privilege that you did. We will never forget. Please meri jaan, don’t ever forget!”

P.S. Don’t forget to say prayers for Mahnoor, Sammar & their family along with every patient & their loved ones who have undergone the terrible trials of Cancer.  May their soul rest in peace. Aameeen!

#HeartFeltCondolencesFromTheFamilyTheWordsCraft

Also, pray for the SHIFA of all other patients who are suffering from any sort of disease & fighting for their life. May Allah bless them with a healthy, happy & long life. Aameeen!

MAHNOOR SHABIR

Mahnoor Shabir is a Pakistani girl who took her early education from Beaconhouse School Systen & was currently studying in Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). She was 21 years old, fighting a deadly disease known as cancer like a brave warrior. She was diagnosed cancer few years back & won the battle against it. But this battle was not over yet. She was recently diagnosed cancer, once again. Knowing about her disease, Mahnoor recently updated her facebook status on 18th January 2017, 7:31 p.m. saying; “Won a battle but the war against cancer isn’t over yet. Fortunately or unfortunately, it relapsed just a few days back. I am a 21 years who should be worrying about my quizzes and if I made it above the average, but instead I have to worry about my blood counts being in the normal range. I am 21 years old who should be worrying about my GPA, but instead I worry about the result of my biopsies. I am a 21 years old who should be searching for the best post grad universities abroad, instead I am searching for the best cancer clinics abroad. I am a 21 years old who should be rejoining her university again this week, instead I am getting hospitalized again. I am a 21 years old who should be worrying about a chipped nail, instead I worry about the effects of chemotherapy. I am a 21 years old who should be worrying about relationships, instead I worry about emotional attachment with almost anyone. I am a 21 years old who should be the one making trips to the hospital for her parents and wheeling them around, instead they are the ones doing it. But none of that upsets me, it makes me only more grateful that I am an extra ordinary 21 years old. I am a 21 years with incredible strength, willpower, resilience and courage to face one of the most deadliest maladies again. A second attempt may be frustrating but I believe it can be easy too. And it makes me grateful to have the most amazing and supportive parents out there. But I am a 21 years old who is nothing without Allah or the prayers that He answers. So I would request you all to keep me in your prayers as much as you can. No one knows when one of it might get accepted! 🎗”  And then she updated this on 28th January 2017, 2:00 a.m. “Please! Please! I beg you to all to keep remembering me in your prayers. And more than that, I need you to you to pray for my parents!” A few days back she passed away. 

All her status reflect her love & desire for living life like a normal person. Her photos reflect the vivaciousness she bared in her heart. So many people among us who are blessed with a good health are so ungrateful to this blessing because we do not realize its value.. We should be thankful to Allah (S.W.T) for every little blessing we have.

We go to school, college, university or job everyday. We go out with friends, party, enjoy life. We live our life the way we want. We have no idea about the patients who are admitted in the hospital. They spend their every minute looking at the ceiling or walls, thinking about their recovery.

Parents wish that their children will take care of them & will be their support system when they will grow old. We have no idea how heartbreaking it is when parents sit in the hospital for hours, days, weeks or even months in hospital, waiting for their sick children to get well. It is even more heart wrenching when parents give birth to their children, bring them up & then bury their children in graves.

May Allah (S.W.T) bless all the sick people with healthy & long life!

May Allah (S.W.T) grant Mahnoor the highest rank in Jannah. May Allah (S.W.T) bless her parents, family & friends with infinite patience!

Hats off to all the cancer patients, who are fighting this deadly disease. Just know you are not alone. Somewhere, someone is fighting for his/her survival & life.

5 BEAUTY MYTHS BUSTED (PART-1)

  • PEOPLE WITH OILY SKIN SHOULD NOT USE OILY PRODUCTS

There has been a question by those who have an oily skin that using serums & moisturizers make the skin oily? No definitely not. It is important to find the right kind of product you need. Applying serums, moisturizers & facial oils on oily skin doesn’t make the skin oilier infact it stops the skin from producing its own oils to keep it hydrated which can be a reason of breakouts.

  • AGE SPOTS MEANS YOU ARE GETTING OLDER

Age spots are not just a reason of aging. Age spots can be caused due to several other reasons such as hormonal fluctuations, genetics & too much sun exposure. In order to prevent your skin, it is important to wear sunscreen all the time.

  • DRY SKIN? DRINK MORE WATER!

Yes, water is good for your skin. It helps to keep your skin hydrated but it won’t treat your dry skin. Many studies have compared the water content of dry skin to that of normal or oily skin, which shows that there isn’t a significant difference. The causes of dry skin are far more complicated than water consumption. So you need to apply serums, lotions & suitable oils to keep your skin from drying.

  • TINGLING SENSATION MEANS THE PRODUCT IS WORKING

    This is one of my favorite myths because there was a time when I believed that when bleach tingles that means its colouring my facial hair golden & cutting down all the dirt. But as I got more into cosmetology I understood that tingling means irritating your skin instead of helping it. So the tingling sensation on your skin means your skin is being irritated by the product.

  • TESTING FOUNDATION ON YOUR WRIST

Back in the days when makeup artistry was not so common it was said you can test a foundation by applying it on your wrist. Wait… No! No one ever told that your wrist tends to be lighter or darker than your face tone, therefore while choosing a foundation, test it on your jawline for the right shade.

 

REASON FOR BEING AWAY!

Heartiest apologies to my readers! This is the longest time ever that I haven’t posted in a while. I was busy with my family & stuff, a lot has been going on. My father had a brain hemorrhage &  he was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm in November & he underwent surgical clipping that was a 9 hours long procedure. We were in the hospital for about a month, away from home, in another city. It was a very hard time. Alhamdulilah! By the grace of Allah (S.W.T) the surgery & treatment went successful.

As soon as we returned home, my exams were about to start in a week. I had to complete my thesis as well. Everything was completely messed up. I needed time to cope up with everything, therefore I took a long break from my blogging & social media. But now I am back with a bang, planning to start my youtube channel based on beauty & makeup. I have been dying to do this since years. Currently I am working on starting my channel, also I will be posting 3-4 posts a week now. Also I will be posting an article on BRAIN ANEURYSMS in collaboration with Dr. Faraz Khan for you people to know what aneurysm is. I believe it is always good to have knowledge about things, specially health.

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS – CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

For some people 2016 must have been an amazing year while for some people it must have been a hard one. Good or bad, it’s never too late to change your life! Life is a roller coaster with ups & downs. What ever happened last year is now gone. Today being the 1st page of a 365 paged book, its time to write a new one.

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”

Its never too late to change your life & become what you want to be. If you don’t take a step today, you might regret it tomorrow. What is coming is better than what is gone. It’s time to sit alone for a while & decide what you want for yourself. It’s time to evaluate yourself & your life. It’s time to come up with realistic things you want to achieve or do this year & start working over those things from today. It’s never too late to change yourself & your life.

Make a box storage or jar, write things you want to achieve in 2017 & put them in that jar. Place the jar on a place that is visible & you can see everyday, so that it keeps on reminding you of your goals. In fact, you can also write little changes you want in yourself or in your life.

If you can not think so something big, start with small resolutions like;

  • Save Money
  • Take A Trip
  • Get Fit
  • Help Others
  • Do Something That Makes You Happy
  • Make Your Parents Proud
  • Eat Healthy
  • Make New Friends
  • Quit Smoking (For Smokers)
  • Love
  • More Family Time
  • Be Happy!

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

All you need to remember is,its never too late to late to change. What is coming is better than what is gone!

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE WORDS CRAFT FAMILY! ♥

Makeup Freak Behind THE GLAM LIFE!

Hey there! For those of you are subscribing or reading my blog should know about me… My name is Aisha Iqbal. I was always into doing some creative stuff, makeup just came naturally. I never learned it from anyone. I was in class 7 when I first time started experimenting with makeup. I would do my own makeup, my mom’s makeup or my friend’s makeup.  This way I ended up learning a lot & understanding the chemistry of different skin types, makeup tricks & techniques. Recently I have been doing my friend’s makeup for their birthdays & bridal showers.

I am super obsessed to makeup. People who know me well, the are well aware of my makeup shopping problem. Though I have plenty of makeup but every time I go out for shopping I end up buying things I do not even use & need. I believe makeup is an art that enhances & brings out the natural beauty.

Thats it about me!
