Ananya turns to a relaxing hair champi once a week to keep her hair healthy. That’s right, a hair oil massage is all it takes to get gorgeous hair like your favourite Bollywood diva. A while ago, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja also disclosed that she maintains her long, luscious hair by oiling it once in a while. These two have proven that if a beauty trick works, it works - no matter how long it’s been around.
Benefits of the ingredients:
One of nature’s best gifts to mankind has to be honey. It has countless benefits, including a bunch of beauty perks. Due to its antiseptic properties, honey makes a good skincare ingredient for acne-prone skin. It is also antibacterial, which helps in balancing destroying bacteria on the skin, leading to fewer breakouts. Raw honey is a natural humectant and adds a glow to the skin. Because of its water-retaining abilities, it keeps the skin hydrated, but does not make it oily or greasy.
Yoghurt is a dry skin saviour. It treats and repairs dry and itchy skin. It helps get rid of flakiness by moisturising your skin from deep within. It also acts as a mild exfoliant on dry skin by removing scaly skin on top. Additionally, yoghurt has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that soothe and calm irritated skin.
Turmeric or haldi is a skincare all-rounder. It heals wounds, reduces acne, adds glow, provides anti-ageing benefits and improves skin texture - what more can we ask for! Turmeric has loads of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant qualities that will help you achieve smooth and soft skin. In the long run, it makes your skin taut and young by repairing sun damage. Consumption of turmeric and using it topically, have been proven to deliver excellent results.
