There's something about the first one that reminds me of Ramona Keveza. It sort of has a splattered paint effect down the center of the gown. I love it.
These are such dramatic and romantic dresses. I love the third one.
@marshalledgar I would be if Leonardo DiCaprio ever returned my calls, but ultimately I'm just someone that really appreciates the architecture involved in fashion design. Especially when it comes to occasion gowns and couture pieces.
The one in the middle looks like the fabric is melting. I love that look.
Chaaya gowns are very romantic. miles and miles of fabric

How Dairy gives You Acne
Everyone who's fighting acne, doubts this at some point in time. 'Does dairy make my acne worse?'. You may stop having dairy for a week, only to realize that it is too much trouble and you can't really tell the difference. Let's figure this out together... Research tells us that inflammatory skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema and acne are more common and more severe in those who consume a diet rich in dairy products. These skin problems are even more common in those who indulge in smoking, consume packaged food and are exposed to polluted air. Cow's milk, which is the largest consumed animal milk in the world, contains casein protein and whey protein. Both these are known to raise the levels of growth hormones in calves as well as humans. Growth hormones such as insulin-like growth factor - 1 or IGF-1 is strongly linked with increased sebum formation in our skin. After infancy our body increasingly loses its ability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk. We know that more than 50% of the world's population is lactose intolerant. Milk and milk products trigger all sorts of allergies as well as acne. Besides this, cows and buffaloes are regularly injected with artificial hormones to increase their milk supply. When you consume dairy that is mass produced with such practices, it throws your hormones off balance. Dairy may also promote growth of unhealthy gut bacteria and cause gut inflammation. This alters the way your food is digested and absorbed, which in turn leads to vitamin deficiencies and dull skin. How to prevent dairy related skin problems? Reduce dairy intake and switch to high-fiber diet instead. Increase your intake of omega-3 rich food and supplements to achieve a blemish-free skin. Do not substitute dairy with packaged almond milk or soy milk. Consider switching to green tea or freshly brewed black coffee instead. Both of these have plenty of antioxidant benefits which boost your immunity and make your skin glow. If you plan to give a dairy-free lifestyle a try, avoid all dairy products completely for atleast 3 weeks to see the improvement. Any thing less than 2 weeks cannot give you an idea of whether dairy truly aggravates your acne. If your acne persists consider discussing diagnostic tests and acne treatment options with your dermatologist. *Dairy products include milk, yogurt, curd, buttermilk, cheese, paneer, whey protein shakes, cakes and other similar desserts.
How Smoking Ruins Your Skin and Hair
If there only one lifestyle change that you will make to look younger, quit smoking. Smoking affects your skin and hair in many negative ways. Read on to find out how... How Smoking Damages your Skin and Hair When you smoke, the nicotine in the tobacco reduces the amount of blood that is flowing to your skin.

Tobacco smoke contains 4000 other chemicals besides nicotine. And most of them trigger the break down of collagen and elastin. These are the fibers that give your skin its supple and glowing appearance. Smoking or even being around a friend or partner who smokes destroys the building blocks of your skin. Apart from your facial skin your lips also become darker in colour. This lip hyperpigmentation is also called as 'smoker's lips'. It can begin immediately after you start smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products. Smoking damages DNA, which can also affects your hair follicles. It damages the hair at the root and negatively affects the hair growth cycle. This causes early greying and hair loss. What You can do to Reverse the Damage Your skin recovers its elasticity when you stop smoking. It will also be smoother, making it more pleasant to look at and touch. Your skin complexion will become visibly brighter in the first few weeks after you stop smoking. After six months, your skin will regain its original vitality. Start an antioxidant supplement that contains N-acetyl cysteine, glycine, glutamine, vitamin C, vitamin E, resveratrol and astaxanthin. Antioxidants are free radical scavangers that reduce the oxidative stress caused by smoking. Start using retinol in your nightly skin care routine. Retinol is a powerful antioxidant and it boosts collagen repair. It is one of the holy grail ingredient when it comes to skin tightening and anti aging treatment. Explore cyclical vitamin therapy to control hair loss and boost hair re-growth. Cyclical vitamin therapy contains as many as 100 ingredients which are needed for healthy hair and treatment of hairloss. Pick an under eye cream containing chrysin, vitamin K and kojic acid to reverse dark circles caused by smoking. Try a DIY lip balm containing ghee and beets to lighten your lips and restore their pink colour.

3 Lifestyle Habits that can Cause Acne Breakouts
Your acne is coded in your genes and governed by your hormones. While these two factors are not in your control, your lifestyle which affects your skin equally, IS. Here are the most important lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your acne breakouts... 1. Clean your mobile phone Your mobile phone is pressed against your cheeks while you chat away with friends. The bacteria from your skin gets transferred on to the screen and stays there till it gets pressed on your skin again. Besides this your phone may have food residue from the time that you were eating and texting and dust from lying on dirty surfaces. If you have acne prone skin, make sure you sanitize the surface of your mobile phone at least once every day. 2. Wash your face less often If you have oily skin which is prone to breakouts, chances are that you are washing your face more than twice daily. That, coupled with acne treatment AHA toners, salicylic acid serums and retinol night creams can over dry your skin. This leads your skin to produce even more oil which in turn feeds acne causing bacteria. Wash your face maximum 3 times a day. Once in the morning when you wake up and shower, once before sleeping at night and an additional time after a workout or outdoor exposure. 3. Reduce your carb intake Refined carbs such as bread, pasta and fried food have a high glycemic index. They increase blood sugar and cause a spike in the hormone Insulin. High glycemic foods are very inflammatory for the body and also disturb your gut bacteria. This in turn disturbs your skin microbiome. Increase your intake of fresh vegetables and salads instead. These are loaded with antioxidants which help your skin in healing faster. If you have been struggling with acne breakouts for a while, getting a little help from your dermatologist could go a long way in getting rid of your acne.
