There’s nothing more fun than holiday season. But as much as you love trekking up a mountain or relaxing by a beach, your skin and hair can easily take a beating while you’re at it. It is only after you resume your normal schedule that you can gauge the full extent of the damage—unevenly tanned skin, dark circles and dull hair. If you want to know how to give yourself a beauty detox post a holiday, here’s what you need to do...

Cleanse right

Keep in mind that your skin has gone through a lot lately—from a little too much makeup to too much sunlight and lack of sleep. Make a simple start towards correcting all the damage by using a face wash that removes deep-seated grime from your skin. Our favourite is the Pond’s Pure White Deep Pore Cleansing Facial Foam that contains activated carbon which absorbs impurities and pollution particles that have settled on your skin. Over time, it also reduces blemishes to reveal flawless looking skin.

Rely on an exfoliant

If you want to do away with dead cells and get your baby soft skin back, you must keep an exfoliant on your bathroom shelf. We’ve been using the St.Ives Fresh Face Apricot Scrub for a while now and we couldn’t be happier! With apricot that heals and soothes skin and walnut shell extract that’s loaded with Vitamin B and E to moisturise skin, it gently but surely gets rid of dead cells and bacteria that have accumulated on the surface. Moreover, this fabulous combination of ingredients revitalises and rejuvenates skin and helps our cheeks achieve that natural glow we always yearned for.

Add moisture to your skin
 

Add moisture to your skin

The sun and lack of water in your body can make the skin feel severely dehydrated. One way to remedy this is by making the Ayush Moisturising Cow’s Ghee Soap that’s made of cow’s ghee and Pinda Tailam (a powerful concoction of Ayurvedic herbs like pure Sesame oil, Manjishtha and Sariva) a daily habit. Now we know what you’re thinking…cow’s ghee soap would probably mean a gooey and greasy mass. Turns out, you couldn’t be farther from the truth! While Ayurveda recommends cow’s ghee as a remedy for extremely dry skin, Shatdhouta Ghrita is made from cow’s ghee by treating it with water over 100 times. This means that once it comes into contact with water, this fluffy emulsion can penetrate deep into the skin to replenish moisture without making your skin feel oily.

Backed by 5000 years of Ayurvedic wisdom, this simple change in your bathing routine will ensure your skin stays free of inflammation and infections and is one step closer to becoming soft and smooth.
