Your skin could be clearer and smoother than it is? Your hair could be any silkier, stronger and bulky? All this without having to spend thousands of rupees are your parlor? Yes absolutely! I get hundreds of young women who seek desperate solutions to their skin problems and hair and waiting for me to wave my magic wand and solve their problems overnight and transform them. I would like to oblige but the truth is that nature does not bloom overnight. The smallest seed of a plant must be planted, nurtured and cared for before it can flourish and show its magnificence. Although we live in a world of “insta” or instant options, some things can’t be played.
With the festivals season around the corner – Durga Puja, Karva Chauth, Diwali and endless occasions, and festivals that go with skin and hair needs to look healthy and beautiful. In this article, I discussed some remedies “insta” (both magical and natural) that are guaranteed to work and give fabulous results in death looking skin and hair. So wake up and soak these spells in your festival look.
For Oily, Dull and Combination Skins
For Tired and Dry Skin
Suffering From Frizzy Hair?
Try this simple spray, quick and easy to do. Take lemon slices and simmer two in two cups of water until it is reduced to half the amount. Pour the liquid into a spray bottle and spritz on your hair. Not only will there be a beautiful natural shine but static and flying hair will be gone!!!
For Natural Hair Colour
If you have a brownish tinge in your hair and do not have time to henna or color, then take a few sprigs of rosemary on the kitchen shelf and simmer in 2 cups of water with 2 teaspoons of black tea until it reduced to half the amount. Mix with 1/4th cup of shampoo and every time you shampoo, use this mixture. Leave the shampoo in your hair for about 15 minutes and see the difference it makes.
For A Smooth Back
Planning to wear an Indian lehenga with backless blouse or backless lehenga choli, but no time to go to a body scrub to show a smooth back? Here’s a quick home remedy. Take 1 cup of sea salt and mix it with half a cup of olive oil. Add 5 drops of sandalwood oil and mix well. Store in a jar and rub the areas of your body you want to flaunt. Wipe with a damp towel.
Dealing With Dark Circles and Under Eye Bags
Take used chamomile tea bags and store them in the freezer. Grate 1/2th cucumber and massage around the eyes and lie down with tea bags on your eyes for 8 to 10 minutes. You find an instant difference in the way your eyes look and feel.
Instant Face Lift
Wash your face with ice water or simply rub and ice cube with a teaspoon of honey on the face. Beat an egg white until it culminates and brush on your skin and let dry. You will feel the stretch in the skin. Wash the face with ice water.
Tired Eyes After Job
Long hours at work and shopping, then getting things organized for the holiday season can be tiring. I suggest you do this wonderful eye wash that will make you feel refreshed instantly. Take water ice source in a bowl and add a few drops of rose water, 2-3 drops of honey and dive in one eye. You can also open your eyes a little and then close it. Discard the liquid water and do the same for the other eye and repeat the process. After this, splash your eyes with cold mineral water. There may be mild redness for some time, but it will soon disappear and your eyes feel refreshed in minutes.
Quick Hair Care
Do not have time to shampoo and dry your hair, even if it is oily? Well, no sweat. Sprinkle talcum powder and amla powder on your hairbrush and reverse the hair on your head and neck to brush. Now spikes throw your hair back and voila you have bouncy hair without oil in minutes!!!
So these are just some of my secret “insta beauty” remedies. Use them and enjoy, but never replaced by a skin and hair regular care.
