Tip 1: Take half a cup of unboiled milk at room temperature. Dip a pad of cotton wool and generously apply on the face and neck. Leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes and wash off. After a shower, pat the face dry and apply a moisturizer while the face is still moist.
So, I am back! Back to my hostel in Tuljapur where the sun is in no mood to show any mercy. And my poor poor skin is suffering. That is why; I decided to ask Priti Seth, who is the co-owner of Pachouli Spa in New Delhi to share some awesome tips that will soothe my super dry skin. Let’s have a look at her wonderful tips J
My take: I can personally vouch for this remedy. I have tried it out a number of times and it works!
Tip 2: Splash some water from a tender coconut whenever possible. Do this at least twice a day when the dryness is acute as coconut water is one of the best natural moisturizers. Leave it on for 15 minutes before washing off.
My take: It is a little bit on the expensive side but I plan to try it out once a week to pamper my skin.
Tip 3: Yogurt applied on the face and neck works in gently removing flakes of dry skin. Yogurt has lactic acid which soothes and refreshes the skin, and calms down the itchiness and skin rashes. Some ripe papaya pulp can be added to the yogurt and use it as a mask.
My take: Applying yoghurt is really soothing. I didn’t papaya pulp can be added along with it. Definitely going to try this one out.
Tip 4: Clean off make up with cotton pads dipped in olive oil – it works on the skin as a moisturizer and adds a layer of fatty acids which don’t deplete the skin in any way.
My take: This is a little expensive for college students like me. I will have to save up to invest in a good quality olive oil.
Tip 5: Lightly heat 2 tsp. of honey apply it onto your skin (face, hands, legs) while warm. Leave it on for 15 minutes, and then wash it off. There’s nothing better your skin can ask for.
My take: This seems a little messy and I don’t think I have the time for this routine.
Tip 6: After bath, slice a piece of aloe, squeeze all the gel out and apply onto your face, hands or legs. It will not only moisturize your skin, it will also form a protective layer that will keep impurities from entering your pores.
My take: I can vouch for this one too as I regularly apply aloe vera gel moisturize my skin. It has amazing results!
So these were some of Priti’s amazing tips. Which one do you plan to try out?
