Look Your Best

Easy Home Remedies During Lockdown

 By Dr. Blossom Kochhar

Grooming is a very important part in building someone’s confidence and helps in leaving a great impression on other people, everyone be it a man or a women in today’s era make it a point to be groomed at all the times but now when all the salons are shut we don’t know how to take care of ourselves like the professionals do it for us. But today I am going to share ways through which you can groom yourself sitting at home with minimal things required. We shall go from top to bottom and work on every aspect so that we are well groomed all the time and look our best during lockdown as well.

Hair

It is the most important aspect in your beauty, it’s the crown on your head and you should take extra care of it. I recommend shampooing your hair twice or thrice a week, depending upon how oily your hair gets, do regular oiling with warm oil – do this twice a week. Since we are at home, try to make a good hair mask and use that, I suggest a hair mask made with half squashed banana, 2 tablespoon conditioner, a squeeze of lemon, a tea spoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoon of Dahi. Also, learn how to blow dryer your hair, you can also learn to make simple hairstyles at home and experiment with your hair styling.

Skin

With summers around, it is really important to moisturise our skin regularly, remember to use a pack once a week using papaya, watermelon, a pack is like a iron for your skin, it nourish your skin and makes it more glowing. Exfoliate your skin twice a week, use rice powder, yoghurt, a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon. Mix this all together to make a nice exfoliator at home. And don’t forget to cleanse tone and mositurise your face twice in a day – morning and before going to bed. This is a must to have a great skin forever.

Facial Hair

The biggest challenge that all women/ girls are facing is the facial hair, we miss our threading and upper lips session at the salons and though it takes a professional to do these we can do these simple things to keep our eyebrows in shape and remove upper lip hair. For threading, stretch your eyebrow from above and tweeze the extra hair, the extra ones around your eyebrow line. Don’t use a thread as we are no experts and might lead to a cut. For upper lips, use a wax strip, cut it into small strips. Take one small strip put it on one side, stretch your upper lip from the other side and pull it in the opposite direction.  Though I suggest to not use wax regularly, do it just once or twice until the salons open again.

Waxing

Those who are worried about hair on their hands and legs, can opt for either waxing or using aepilator or razor to remove hair. While waxing, put some powder on your hand/legs take a strip apply it in the direction of your hair, apply the strip on a small patch and then pull it in the opposite direction. For those who shave, wet your hands/legs, apply facewash thoroughly, have a good lather and then start shaving. Remember to apply lots of moisturiser after shaving.

Hand and Feet

We all are doing lot of household chores which is making our hands rough and heels chipped. To be properly groomed we need to take special care of our hands and feet. After taking your shower, push back the cuticles of your nails with your towel. Always keep your nails cut to a medium length, file them and wear a nail polish. This keeps your nails from getting brittle and they won’t break easily. For your feet, while taking a shower, scrub your heels with a pumic stone and after towel drying them apply a good moisturiser. Also, remember to give a nice hand and foot massage to yourself before going to the bed at night.

Make up

We all are at home and don’t feel like wearing makeup, but I suggest every now and then wear a bright lipstick as this brightens your face and pep up your mood as well. You can also use this time to learn how to do makeup, try different eye shadows, ways to apply eye liners and learn the right way to contour your face.
