Here are 12 healthy and easy beauty tricks for each month of the year that could lead to a more beautiful you, this year .
Warm showers in biting cold strip our skin of oils, so use almond oil, honey and fresh cream as a scrub on the face. For full body
massages, instead of baby oil or paraffin, use a mix of oils — almond, olive, sesame, vitamin E and pure lavender. Consider detoxifying your body with a healthy diet and lots of water after the month-long partying.
Valentine’s Day calls for that extra glow on your skin, so go for skin exfoliation at least twice a week. Keep your makeup light with less foundation. Maximize your lashes and go for a smoky eye makeup with a hint of glitter to dazzle at the party.
Prepare your skin for Holi, so you can play like a pro. Apply oil on your full body and hair in advance for a smooth, glowing skin, even after excessive use of colours and harsh chemicals.
Apply a thin coat of sunscreen on your face and full body. Utilise Intense Pulsed Light technology for safe and permanent hair removal to wear shorts and sleeveless.
A short hair cut will help you to withstand the summers besides giving you a much-needed makeover.
Opt for permanent makeup, which is applied in the form of lip colour, eyeliner, eyebrow or even a beauty spot. This technique saves both your time and the load of carrying vanity kits on holidays besides enhancing your appearance perfectly for holidays and parties.
Collegens pep you up for your freshers party by adding glamour to your natural hair. Go for straightening or curling treatments. Also, adding contrasting colours such as brown, red or burgundy to your hair is a popular choice.
It’s monsoon, so hair care becomes vital in the wet zone. Do not directly use a drier after getting wet in the rain. Go for a head wash to clean oil and dirt, thus preventing dandruff and breakage.
The bridal beauty countdown begins! All the brides-to-be must start their pre-bridal treatments now. Experience the goodness of a paraffin manicure and pedicure, as the wax nourishes and hydrates the skin, leaving it soft.
Go for the airbrush technique of applying makeup, as it yields a flawless looking skin ideal for weddings and HD photography.
Do not underestimate the need for a natural and glowing makeup on Diwali. Opt for a sheer look where the colours are blended perfectly to match the traditional attires you wear.
Dry and flaky skin is a common sight. Go for body polishing that gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin. Slather on a mix of fresh cream, rose petals and honey for smooth and pink lips.
