Festive months can be trying times. Too many people, too much to do and if you’re anything like us, you’ll invariably leave everything for the last minute. We did a little salon service scouting of our own and came to the conclusion that if you’re strapped for time, these three quintessential services at the Lakmé Salon can take you (and your skin) from drab to fab…

prepping for party at last min flavoured wax 600x400

The flavoured wax
No one really “likes” getting a wax so we’re not going to try to convince you to get one. But imagine the room smelling of chocolate, imaging getting all that hair out at just one go and imagine no red patches or rashes after. Sounds pretty ideal doesn’t it? Well, that’s exactly what the flavoured wax is like – easy, quick and pretty damn painless. (Bonus: You can choose from a variety of flavours although chocolate, aloe vera and strawberry are the popular ones.)
The flavoured wax treatment is available at all Lakmé Salons and is priced at ₹ 380 onwards.

The fruit facial
No matter what kind of skin you’ve got, if you’ve got a tight week ahead of you – weddings, too many parties or just plain-old socializing where you need to look good, this is your best bet. The facial begins with a short but relaxing neck and shoulder massage, followed by a face cleanse and finally, the fruit paste that’s massaged gently into your skin. Give it a few hours and you’ll notice your skin looking visibly healthy and super nourished, and not to mention, glowing and black-head free.
The fruit facial is available at all Lakmé Salons and is priced at ₹ 800 onwards.

prepping for party at last min peppermint pedicure 600x400

The Peppermint Pedicure
Whether you’re dealing with tired feet after too much dancing or you’ve got way too many evenings in those peep toes coming up, the Peppermint Pedicure is an excellent way to pamper your feet. With mint and basil based ingredients, this pedicure cools and refreshes the skin on your feet and also rids (not completely) harsh pigmentation. Plus, it even moisturises your skin, an essential in the winter season, so that you’re not left with pretty looking nails on chalky, dry toes.
The Peppermint Pedicure is available at all Lakmé Salons and is priced at ₹ 550 onwards.
