The festive season is by far the busiest time of the year flooded with countless events, parties and family gatherings. And while we all want to put our best face forward, we often don't know where to start. If you’re looking to get your glow on this festive season, Lamiya Chitalwalla from the BB Beauty Squad shows you five simple tips to follow.

Tip #1: Exfoliation is a must

Begin by exfoliating the skin. It not just helps brighten the skin, but also adds that glow by removing dead skin cells and making way for new one. Remember to exfoliate once a week for smooth and glowing skin. The best part is that exfoliation will help your makeup glide on like butter!

Tip #2: Eat right

You are what you eat! Eating right forms the basis of great skin. So kiss those wafers, laddus and mithais goodbye and say hello to fresh fruits and vegetables. They will give your skin the essential supply of vitamins and minerals it needs. 

Tip #3: Stay hydrated

Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins from the body. This will also nourish and improve the texture of your skin. If you’re the kind of person who forgets to drink water, get yourself a water drinking app to remind you. Trust us, it’s a life saviour.

Tip #4: Destress the eyes

Place cold slices of cucumber on your under-eye area and leave it on for a few minutes. This helps calm stressed, puffy eyes and makes you look fresh and awake.

Tip #5: Pamper your skin

Lastly, take time to indulge in some sheet mask therapy. Sheet masks are easy to use and very handy especially while travelling. Use a sheet mask that is infused with active nutrients to make your skin glow. Keep it on for 10 to 15 minutes and massage the remaining liquid all over your face.
