Hello,

 I’ve been a single child till 9 years of my life and then one morning in Early November, I became a sister ! like most elder sisters I was elevated to adulthood in a day ! My parents expected me to be responsible, since I was an elder sister! They expected me to do things by myself and step in when they were unavailable to take care of the little one. I enjoyed being called the elder sister! The first few years passed and I became habituated in sharing my everyday with my sibling!

Then one day when my little sister called me for the first time as ‘Didi’ I remember the sheer joy I felt. Then the day she went to preschool, I felt proud! When she got her straight ‘A’ s  in the exams, I felt proud like I was her mother. Well, to tell you the truth being a sister is like a run at how being a mother would feel.

Siblings, whether brother or sister or both become a part of us! They become our pillars of support, our best friends, our protectors, our partners in crime, and sometimes our parent too. In my family my sister became the youngest, she was one of those children who, despite growing in age wanted to stay a child. 

I remember one day especially when she was taken to get her ear pierced. It’s really a simple task and we women in India go through it once in our lives. I remember when I was young and was taken to a hospital. The nurse put me on a stretcher and asked me to sit, facing her ! My mom promised me candies if I would not cry , so i was determined that I won’t ! I remember the nurse applying a kind of antiseptic liquid on my ear lobes and then using a sterilized needle to do the piercing. Thinking about me now amazes me how I could not cry and sit there while she did one ear and then the other. I took the lesson from this and suggested that my sister got her’s done at a good salon with special piercing guns. 

She went to the salon, sit there while they applied some local anesthesia and then used the gun to pierce the earlobe. It was a 2 minute deed but I remember having tears in my eyes when I saw her face turn red with pain (even through she had been anesthetized locally) . That was the first time I saw myself feeling pain for my sister!

It took me many more such instances to understand that I love my sister more than a sibling and almost like my own child! I feel hurt when she’s hurt, i feel pain when she fails in anything she does! That moment when I saw her in the cradle next to my Mom’s bed where mom was smiling is one of the best moments of my life!

 I’ve shared my memories with my sister! Share your #MemoriesForLife like I’ve done at BlogAdda for HDFC Life.

    1. Hi dear,
      Having oily skin might be causing you to get pimples which leave unattractive spots. Also excessive oil secretion can cause blackheads and whiteheads. But believe me, oily skinned ladies look younger than their age and the skin stays better for more years than a very dry skinned person. Please incorporate a good skincare routine, use products that are designed for oily skin and reduce oily junk food from your diet. If you’re looking for good skincare brands that cater to the oily skinned people, try La Rochey Posey, The Body shop, Lotus range for oily skin. I personally love their skin gels and sunscreens. Also use a good foaming cleanser twice a day, followed by a toner (Rose water or tea tree or a specially targeted toner for oily skin) and then followed by a good gel based (Oil free) moisturiser . For blackheads and whiteheads, get a good scrub for oily skin, and massgae your nose area and T zone every alternate day. You can also resort to nose pore strips as a last resort or quick solution. Also maintaining a good diet is essential for good skin. Reduce oily food, eat lots of fruits like papaya, apple, oranges, lime, watermelon, muskmelons, peach, berries and more. Also consume leafy vegetables and cook them with very less oil or switch to healthier options . Also add fresh proteins, fish protein work best to keep skin glowing. If you’re a vegetarian, or don’t like to eat fish try cod liver oil capsules. Add less milk, less sugar and avoid having caffeine. I hope with these tips you will be able to get better skin.
