Summer brings refreshing news & natural goodness!

ImageSummer brings refreshing news & natural goodness!

It’s summer time and you’re itching to discard your jeans for shorts! But summer can be harsh on the skin and body so it’s important that you learn to take care of yourself.

Every season needs a particular type of body care. You need to follow health care tips as per the season. During summer there is lot of heat persistent in the atmosphere, thus we need to take body care accordingly.

BODY CARE TIPS FOR SUMMER SEASON – 

Skin Care & Clothes

1. The preliminary step for protection from sun’s heat is wear clothes that cover your entire body when you go out in the sun. This protects the body from excessive heat.

2. Wear light color cotton clothes that are loose enough to provide proper aeration. Light color clothes reflect the sun’s rays and reduce their intensity and harm due to the exposure.

3. Wear the cap or tie a scarf whenever you go out in the sun.

Sun Protection

4. You need sun protection to avoid tanned and dry skin. Sun damage can happen whenever you come in contact with harmful UV rays- if you go outside, be sure to use a high SPF sunscreen and reapply it frequently and liberally.

5. Do use safe sunscreen lotions to protect your skin from the ultraviolet rays emitted from sun.

Fluids

6. In summer excessive sweating is common so you are likely to suffer from rashes, rosacea, acne on the face as well as your back, tanning, prickly heat, hair damage, skin infections and sunburn.

Increase the amount of the fluids you drink daily as body needs a lot of fluid during the summer season as the body fluids are lost due to the prominent sweating due to the heat.

Diet

7. Eat a balanced diet as digestion problems are common in the heat. Drink a lot of fresh juices and eat fruit.

Sleep

8. Sleep well to keep your health up to date. About 7 to 8 hours of sleep is necessary during the summer season as it helps all the body processes to take place properly.

Enjoy your summer holidays safely, have fun and be happy & sunny!

Nothing excites me more that the sight of bright, farm fresh organic vegetables. It was all here at the Farmer’s Market coupled with a first hand experience of some amazing natural and organic products.  With these amazing earth-friendly products, we also had a chance to personally meet equally amazing and passionate sellers.

The Bandra Farmer's Market

On Sunday Oct 2, 2011,  we visited Kavita Mukhi’s Farmer’s Market Season 3 here in Mumbai.

Where : Bhalla House, 97 Hill Road, Bandra (W), Mumbai.
Landmark: Opposite Saint Andrew’s Church,
When  : All Sundays October 2, 2011 to April 29, 2012
Time    : Sundays, 10 am to 4 pm

(If you plan to frequent the market every Sunday, please make a note of this.  Farmer’s market happens in October & November in Bandra and shifts to Mahalaxmi Race Course from December through April. For more details please visit this link : Farmer’s Market Mumbai)

Glimpses you cannot miss

Here’s a glimpse of the sights we captured this Sunday at this homey, close to nature, unadulterated market place with like-minded thoughtful shoppers and passionate sellers. Take a peak into this blissful natural, organic and eco-friendly market along with a few brands that caught my eye.

First off : Sights of some certified organic vegetables! Needless to say we bought some for the week! 🙂

Certified organic greens

Certified organic potatoes

Certified organic vegetables

Organic vege-delight!

While the choice of produce was limited this Sunday, I hope to see more varieties of vegetables and fruits that I can carry home in the coming weeks. For those looking for home delivery of organic vegetables straight from the farm we were happy to meet ‘Jiyo Organic‘ who takes orders twice a week. A great help for many who can’t make it to the Farmer’s Market every Sunday.

 

Sustainable brands that caught my eye

 

Omved: As you entered the market we stopped to experience a few Omved  products on display. One of the first impressions these products exude is that of distinct high quality and very Indian. From its packaging to the captivating fragrance, going away without a purchase is hard. As mentioned on their site, Omved stands for Om: The absolute; Ved: knowledge.   Their range of products are made by master artisans and tribal craftsmen in village units, fair trade of course! These products are handcrafted, natural, chemical free, non-toxic, biodegradable thus sustainable.  It emphatically brings back ancient Vedic traditions with a high element of design. Here are just a few for you to see 🙂

You can find them on Facebook.com/Omvednatural

Omved incense sticks

Omved tin candles.

The Omved stall

Ecorico snacks. Power snacking without the chemicals. Now how good is that? Their product range includes organic dried apricots, dried figs, almonds, cashews and pistachios free of sulphites, preservatives, colourings and allergens.  What appealed to me the most is that it can be a healthy snacking option for my little four year old as well.

An interesting offering were the impressive gift packs. Take a look to exclaim : Vow!

No Nasties

Can eco-friendly brands be fun and cool? Hell ya! 100% pure organic cotton T-shirts with edgy designs,  high on creativity and style statements. These T-shirt lend a personality of their own coupled with the styling and the fitting. It’s definitely not the typical T-shirt.  NoNasties.in also has an eye-catching website design. It stands out just like their T-shirts!  Three cheers to the No Nasties team for heading this movement!

Shop for change!

Beyond the green produce we loved the organic cupcakes, pulses, cereal bars, nutritious organic meals and snacks, bath and body, natural mosquito repellants, and a whole lot of natural, organic products for your home.

Here’s an extended glimpse:

Time for some Organic Healing?

These surprised us!! Amazingly delicious Gouri's cereal bars!

We hope you enjoyed these glimpses.  To view more photos from the farmers market please do visit us on Facebook.
