Quick fix this Valentine’s Day by Himalaya!

Posted on Updated on

Old flames, first love and all that valentine’s nostalgia. Regardless of your relationship status, love is for everyone and is the perfect reason to celebrate everything that makes you happy – including the way you look!
On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, Chandrika Mahendra, Principal Scientist, R&D, The Himalaya Drug Company shares a few interesting ideas to help you celebrate beauty with love.

Wear a Natural Smile – A natural lip balm with a tint of red for soft, supple and shiny lips is sure to lift your mood up.

V-Day Tip: A DIY scrub early morning with almond oil and sugar crystals will ensure your lips are smooth and supple throughout the day.

Pure Skin Facial – A regular routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing (CTM) will remove impurities like dust and pollution. Use a gentle scrub to exfoliate dead skin, blackheads and clogged pores. Follow it up with a moisturizing face pack to reveal pure and soft skin and then get ready with a fresh face after that facewash.

V-Day Tip: Remove the face pack after 10 minutes to retain your skin’s natural moisture.

Bring Hair Alive – Try a DIY home spa, a day before Valentine’s Day. Massage your scalp with a herbal hair oil followed by a warm towel wrap. It helps the oil penetrate deeper into your hair for extra nourishment. Wash your hair with herbal shampoo and conditioner to remove the oil. End this routine with herbal hair cream on your scalp and strands of your hair. Massage gently and wash it off after 15 minutes.

V-Day Tip: Moisturize your strands with a herbal detangler. It will add shine and smoothness to rough and brittle hair.

Define your eyes naturally – Keep your eyes hydrated with a herbal kajal. Apply it gently on your eyelid for bright and attractive eyes.

V-Day Tip: Dust some powder under your eye skin before applying the Kajal, it helps in absorbing excess oil.

The Purest Feeling – You wouldn’t want flaky skin to upset your mood. Use a creamy lotion to moisturize your skin from head to toe.

V-Day Tip: Treat your skin to a luxurious body lotion immediately after bathing. Your skin will absorb the lotion faster and stay moisturized for long.

Sparkling Smile – Nothing can beat a sparkling white smile, especially on occasions like this. It showcases confidence, positive attitude and happiness.

V-Day Tip: A non-chemical bleach toothpaste with natural enzymes will help you get whiter teeth. Enzymes present in Papaya called papain and in Pineapple called bromelain act as mild whitening agents that safely remove stains, making them sparkling white.

Compliment your perfect look with a fresh floral scent. The fragrance is sure to make your moment perfect!

Subtly seductive and impactful, “Marsala”, as said by the colour forecasters has been the pantone colour of the year, 2015. Marsala is an intense shade of brownish wine mixed with a hint of rust. The colour has a rich, earthy appeal. This colour being extremely versatile, can be used in all possible fabrics like leather, wool and silk in winter and linen, cotton or even lighter fabrics during summer. Marsala is a glamorous colour that suits almost all skin tones. “It goes best with a warn skin tone and at the same time provides the right pop of colour to fair- complexioned women. the best part about this colour is that despite being an earthy shade, it adds just the right amount of glamour required for both a day or night look,” says make-up and beauty expert Aakriti Kochar (as read in the newspapers TOI, Sunday 1st Feb 2105). Here’s how you can embrace this sophisticated and stylish hue effortlessly on your clothes, lips and bags etc.

Angelina’s Maleficent look.

Posted on Updated on

I have always loved the classiness and the royalty that a leather outfit has. And henceforth I love it even more. All thanks to Anglenia Jolie for this. She looked fierce in the Official Versace gown styled with a ponytail and gold spiked bracelets and earring at ‪‎Maleficent‬’s Hollywood Premiere. The couple looked so much in love and colour coordinated. Take a look at their magnificent cum Maleficent appearance….
