Nature’s Bounty – Papaya!

Welcome all health enthusiasts, dieters,  and non-dieters, basically anyone who is looking to shake up their daily routine. Here at Just4Girls.pk we wanted to launch a healthy living section, which will focus on one fruit or vegetable a month that is in season, and share its benefits. We believe by sharing information about natural remedies, benefits and cooking recipes of fruits and vegetables, together we can start to slowly eliminate all the chemicals that we use and consume on a daily basis.

For the month of March the fruit that will be featured is the irresistible and delicious papaya!

Known for its several health benefits, distinct taste, and being readily available throughout the year in Pakistan it is the perfect first fruit to showcase. For all my history nerds just a little background on the papaya, it is native to Central America and was brought over to Indian subcontinent in the 1550s. Seeing how easily it can be cultivated, farmers took note, and now South Asia is the leading producer of papaya.

Now lets dive straight into the numerous health benefits of this delectable fruit. Papaya contains high levels of vitamin C, which helps the immune system and fights the common cold. Also found is vitamin A, again helps the immune system and is also important in aiding vision and vital organs (kidneys, liver etc). Also present is vitamin E, which protects against toxins and free radicals, which damage skin cells. Vitamin E also balances hormones and contains antioxidants that repair hair, skin and nail cells.  Just the vitamins alone in papaya do wonders for the human body. There are also benefits to consuming unripe papaya. When unripe it contains a powerful enzyme called papain. Papain plays a major role in breaking down meats and foods that are high in protein within the body. On top of that the fruit is also laden with fiber, which lowers cholesterol and aids in digestion.

The above-mentioned benefits are just from simple consumption of the fruit. We have not even mentioned the topical benefits from: papaya facials to papaya seed essential oils. As stated earlier papaya contains a number of enzymes so when lathered on the face it helps exfoliate allowing rejuvenated fresh skin to shine through. Furthermore, papaya seed essential oil revives skin, hair and nails with high amounts of carotenoids and antioxidants. The oil promotes elasticity; regeneration of skin cells and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

The uses and benefits of papaya are endless. Please check out our health section every few days, as we will be posting papaya facial tutorials, papaya cooking recipes, and further uses of this super fruit. So what are you waiting for? Make sure you stop by your favorite market or fruit vendor and pick up some papaya today!

HARD CANDY GLAMOFLAUGE MIX IN PIGMENT MAKEUP DROPS – REVIEW

HARD CANDY GLAMOFLAUGE MIX IN PIGMENT MAKEUP DROPS – REVIEW

Glamofy yourself – I am the kind of person who is very particular when it comes to applying foundation. You’ve got to select the right tone, the right texture,  (something that doesn’t makes your face look too oily, or too un-natural); I’m sure most of you girls out there understand the pain of selecting a foundation, it can get wayyy too tricky.

It’s not always easy to apply foundation every time you leave the house neither safe to the skin but with Hard Candy’s Glamoflauge pigment drops I can literally leave the house looking flawless every time. With an array of 12 different shades, you can never get wrong in selecting the one that compliments your skin tone.

The Hard Candy pigment drops actually help you in creating a customized foundation for yourself. These drops come in a small 0.5 oz dropper bottle but as the formula is a thin consistency and are highly pigmented, they’re not required much. And the best part is that you can keep on adding these drops to your moisturizer/primer or foundation until you’re satisfied with the kind of coverage you want to achieve, whether it’s a natural finish or a heavier base.

The Hard Candy Glamoflauge mix-in pigment drops are exclusively available on www.just4girls.pk. Add these to your make-up kit and I’m sure you will not be disappointed.

NYX Lip Lingerie – Ruffle Trim

NYX Lip Lingerie Review- Ruffle Trim

liplingerie12new

Hey ladies! I think you all have figured it out by now, that lipstick is my favorite makeup item. It’s amazing how one small tube can morph your whole look. It’s wild how a daytime outfit can become a nighttime outfit with just the swap of a lipstick and nothing else. You may have noticed in my previous blogs that 2016 was the year of the nude lip, and 2017 is no different, as the trend continues to reign.

My choice of the best nude lip colors goes to NYX Lip Lingerie line. The Lingerie’s are more pigmented creating fuller, 3-D look, unlike their Soft-Matte Lip Cream line, which leaves more of a stain.

I love a daytime matte nude, especially NYX Ruffle Trim (cinnamon pinkish color); it looks easy and effortless, and ruffletrimcompliments most of my wardrobe without washing me out. Sometimes if am feeling sassy and need a quick nighttime look I throw on NYX After Hours a cool, deep brownish hue that make my lips pop – all the drama without the hassle. The best part of the Lip Lingerie line is that the formula they use to create it is extremely silky, and contains vitamin E; so when the liquid dries your lips don’t! There are 24 shades of Lip Lingerie available from pastel peach (Cheekies) to a cool grey/brown (Scandalous). So no matter your skin tone or mood there is a right nude for you.
