Diwali is around the corner and it’s time to flaunt your best looks at all the parties lined up this weekend and on the festive days.

Most of us are busy tidying up the house, doing last minute shopping, deciding upon gifts but spare a moment to get that festive glow.   

Start with this basic routine:

Cleanse

Get used to a cleansing routine till Diwali. You can use raw milk, rose water, honey, Kasturi turmeric to let your skin glow naturally. Wash face with plain water and gently massage any above product in a circular motion for an instant glow.

Scrub

Nothing helps like scrubbing in dealing with dead skin cells. A regular scrubbing will open pores and skin breathe easy. Use multani mitti, ground coffee powder mixed in granulated sugar, honey and lemon mixture for a perfect exfoliation.

Steam

Steam is another amazing way to open skin pores. Take a large bowl of boiling water, add an essential oil of your choice. Let steam clean the skin naturally, even while you enjoy the aroma of essential oils.

Hydrate

It’s winter time and skin becomes dry very often. Keep splashing cold water and place a wet towel on the face for a continued hydration. Drink plenty of water, eat fruits for hydrating from within and look fresh always.

Moisturize

Nothing works like a good moisturizer for getting that perfect festive look. Go for simple kitchen ingredients like honey, castor oil, olive oil, coconut oil, cucumbers, aloe vera to avoid cold winter stripping the skin of essential moisturizer.
