Festivities have begun and October has in-store something for everyone. In addition to it we may have some functions and weddings to attend. All geared up?
Let’s prepare our To Do List together and get ready to rock the show.
Looking your best involves having flawless skin and hair, perfect clothes and right accessories. Let’s focus on each of the aspects in some detail. I completely believe that beauty if not the outward you its “Beauty is being beautiful inside out.”
- Cleansing – Toning – Moisturising your CTM routine should not stop. For sensitive skin you may chose La Roche Posay or Avene products.
- Exfoliation should also be an important part of your routine.
- For oily skin – 3-4 times per week and for normal skin – 2-3 times per week. I am currently using Ma Earth Botanicals with Patanjali Aloe Gel. I prefer natural and herbal products. Ma Earth Botanicals has various options for scrub and mixing it with Aloe Vera always helps. You could mix with rose water or soothing facial mist.
- I would also recommend Everyuth Walnut Scrub or Himalaya Neem Scrub for cheaper options.
- You can’t forget taking care of your body.
- Choose light moisturisers or heavy depending on your skin types.
- Hand creams are a must for functions because AC takes away the moisturisation. I love The Body Shop hand creams or even Marks and Spencer has some good collection.
- Not to forget the Spa oils from The Body Shop collection, must have for this season. Great for skin and love the fragrance.
- You have bath salts from Soulflower or Fuschia – Vkare.
- Exfoliation is a must for body too. Fuschia – Vkare again is skin friendly and good variety.
- Drinking water and nutritious food is as important. Remember Dieting shows on your face. Eat the right food. Nothing is more important than being healthy. Would be brides, very important for you.
- Sleep is the gateway to good health and great skin. Never avoid your sleep. Internal glow reflects externally.
- I prefer the oiling and twice shampoo routine which suits me. Considering we are heading to a drier season please give importance to hair moisturisation as well.
- Use heat protectants before any styling for sure.
- Consider a deep hair mask routine at least once a week. You may want to check Toni & Guy Nourish: Reconstruction Mask or Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Repair Rescue Reversilane Treatment Masque.
- Strobing and Contouring is the new mantra for the season, so do go in for it. You have great brands available in India now. We have seen NYX stores across India. L.A Girl as well, they have some amazing contouring products. You can check
- Use your creative skills and power of colours this season. I see a lot of color play.
- Use shimmer for those special occasions. Body shimmers are also a good option for the glowy tan. You could check this Gulnare Glow Girl Shimmery Dry Body Oil (Received this in my My Envy Box – July Edition).
- Mascara or fake eyelashes whatever suits you.
- Depending on the make-up choose nudes or bold colours for lipsticks.
- Don’t forget your nails – matte, neon or shimmer – choose as per your choice. Nail art lovers one more occasion for indulgence.
- People who love mehendi you have options – temporary or permanent, traditional or color based, heavy traditional designs or Arabic. Explore!
