The past few months have been so hard on all of us. Harder for all those who are fighting the pandemic from the frontlines. If you are one of them, thank you. It’s because of you that the rest of us are able to go on with our lives. We will be eternally indebted.
We do not know when and how this global crisis would end. But it’s a reminder for all of us to reassess the priorities of our lives, which in essence come down to this— taking care of our family and of ourselves.
So please stay home and please do take good care of yourself. And that includes becoming a little mindful of your beauty routine as well not only because it will make you look good, but also because it will make you feel good. And we all know how important it is to feel good about yourself when you are looking after everyone else.
I came up with a novel idea. How about keeping a beauty store at home? Just like we keep a monthly grocery inventory, why not maintain something similar for our beauty needs? That would give us access to our all-natural beauty ingredients whenever we need them.
I often get compliments on my very short hair. People often find it an extension of what they call my ‘natural, confident’ self. Secretly, I enjoy those compliments but what many don’t know is, my current hairstyle wasn’t my first choice and that I never planned it to become a reflection of my personality.
What happens when you put in many good things together? More good. That was my basic theory when I created my exfoliating mask. Apart from the wonderful effect it has on my skin, there are a few other things I absolutely love about it. First, the ingredients are very easily available; no fancy stuff here. Second, you can prepare it in minutes. Three, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to a week. Four, it works for any skin type.
