Want to glow your best throughout the Durga Puja just like the Goddess? No need to visit the crowded salon when you can prep fast, safely and cost-effectively at home. So, follow these quick tips to get the ultimate skin radiance for the Puja.
Remove Unwanted Body Hair
Once your skin is hair-free, its inner radiance will be naturally revealed. Want hassle-free at-home depilation? Then use a full-body hair removal cream for legs, arms, underarms, back, shoulders, and what not! A good product comes with a gentle spatula for smooth application. So, you won’t get nicks. Using the tool, apply the cream on a body part Leave it on for 3-6 minutes. Then glide the spatula in the opposite direction.
Benefits? Depilation occurs close to the hair root so you don’t get prickly stubble. You get silky smooth skin lasting longer than post-shaving to cover the Puja days well. Moreover, the best hair removal cream for legs and other areas contains lily or jasmine fragrance and:
- Lotus milk for normal skin
- Shea Butter for dry skin
- Vitamin E and Aloe Vera gel for sensitive skin
You can also use instant cold wax strips. Unlike hot wax, they don’t burn the skin but uproots even 1.5 mm long hair. You can enjoy up to 4 weeks of hair-free skin! Just apply a strip along the direction of the hair. Wait. Then pull the opposite way. Your skin will also be exfoliated. The best strips even have moisturizing and odour-locking technologies!
Prepare a Natural Facial Cum Exfoliator
Whip a natural mixture that can exfoliate dead skin cells and boost your skin’s radiance. Combine the following ingredients:
- 1/2 cup yoghurt
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2tbsp almond powder (for exfoliation)
- 1/2 cup mashed strawberry
Scrub the paste on your face (avoiding the eyes), neck, shoulders, arms, legs and anywhere else you wish. Let it rest for 5 minutes, and rinse well.
Moisturize Your Skin
A good hair removal cream moisturises your legs and other body parts during depilation. Now you just need to nourish your skin for the rest of the day. So, don’t wait for your skin to feel dry. Form a habit of applying a topical moisturiser every morning and evening. This helps replenish hydration to replace wrinkles and dullness with a natural glow.
Eat Foods Rich in Antioxidants
This is another way to make your skin glow from the inside. Nuts like walnuts contain polyphenols like resveratrol and ellagic acid that can shield skin cells against sun damage like hyperpigmentation. Besides nuts, have broccoli, spinach, berries, barley, tomatoes, kidney beans and dark chocolate, also rich in antioxidants.
Remember the Good Old H2O
Hydrating yourself from the inside out can flush away all the built-up toxins in your body. Drinking enough water also helps boost skin cell regeneration to bring out your inner glow. Every day, go for 8-10 cups of water or unsweetened lemon juice, coffee, tea or fruit juice.
Use these tips to glow bright and be the centre of attention in the Puja pandals!
