            Hi Beauties, Winter is just round the corner. It brings with it the festive season and weddings of course. Therefore it can be understood how important it is to look your best during this time. But alongside it brings dryness, both of skin and hair. So this winter let's not panic and work our way towards a moist and dewy complexion.

* Twice a week internally take a tbsp of raw turmeric juice. Also make a paste with 1 tsp fresh milk cream and 1 tsp raw turmeric juice, apply it on your face and neck. Wash off with tepid water after 10-15 mins. This paste can be on your entire body including hands and legs. It makes the skin smooth and satiny. Better done at nights before hitting the bed.

* Grate a carrot and add to it a little raw milk if you have normal or oily skin or add milk cream if you have dry skin, now use it on your face and neck for 15 mins. Wash off with tepid water. This will reduce dryness as well as roughness of your skin if done twice or thrice a week.

* Take 1 tbsp of cucumber juice, 2 drops of lemon juice and mix it well. Now apply it on your face and neck with a cotton pad soaked in it. Leave on for 30 mins and wash off, done regularly your skin will acquire a glow.

* Take 1 tsp olive oil and add to the white of an egg, beat well and apply on face and neck. When it feels dry, wash off with warm water and sprinkle your face and neck with cool water. This pack can be used 3 times a week and can be stored in the fridge for a few days.


* For mellowed skin, before taking your bath use on your face and neck a mixture of 1 tsp honey and a few drops of lemon juice. Keep it on for 15 mins and wash off with warm water.

* Treat your whole body with a paste made of 1 tbsp each gram-flour and milk cream. Also add a little turmeric paste to it and apply on your face, neck and full body. Keep it on for 15-20 mins and bathe.

* Massage your body regularly with either mustard oil or almond oil before taking bath. It will make the skin smooth and glowing. Its better not to use a soap on dry skin but instead use those moisturising body washes available at beauty stores.

* Every night before hitting the bed massage the face and neck with a good quality massage cream and add a drop of lemon juice to it if you have oily skin. Also instead of massaging cream a mixture of fresh milk cream and a few drops of lemon juice can be used to massage your face and neck.

* Not to forget your feet, every night soak your feet in basin of warm water. Add to it a little foot/pedicure shampoo. After a few mins brush off the dead skin on the heels, clean nails also. Now take another basin of warm water and add to it a few drops of mustard oil or olive oil. Dip feet in it for sometimes. Take out and dry with a towel properly. Rub in a rich foot cream and give a gentle massage, wear socks and jump into bed. Vaseline can well be used instead of foot cream.

Just set aside a little time for yourself and pamper your skin this winter. Drink lots of water to keep yourself well hydrated.
