With Navratri just a few days away, it is time to get everything right–from clothes and jewelry to hair accents. However, if you didn’t get enough time to catch up on your beauty sleep, or get those relaxing salon sessions, fret not, as there is still some time before you hit the garbage ground. From some tried and tested Kadima he nuke to some cool and simple DIY remedies, we will certainly help you bid adieu to those beauty woes and be a head-turner.

Eye Care: Stressful schedules and a hectic lifestyle give us puffy eyes and dark circles. Enough sleep, including healthy nutrients, age-old hacks like keeping cold green tea bags, cucumber, or even keeping sliced potatoes on eyelids, can certainly help keep those dark circles at bay.

Skin Care: Nothing can beat the goodness of homemade face masks made from natural ingredients. Home-made face masks made from banana, papaya, oats, aloe vera, honey, turmeric et al., are great scrubbers, toners, and moisturizers for your skin.

Hair Spa at home: If you don’t want to spend a bomb in salons, then you can get the benefits of a hair spa in the comfort of your home. Massage your hair with coconut or olive oil and let it rest. Next, dip a towel in warm water. Squeeze out the excess water. Wrap it around the hair, and let it stay for 5-6 minutes. Wash it with gentle shampoo and conditioner, followed by a homemade hair mask. And then flaunt your crowning glory.

Exercises: There’s no substitute for a balanced diet and plenty intake of water. Exercising regularly for at least 30-45 minutes also helps your body in the long run. “Exercising from now will not help you to pump up your stamina which you will need in excess during Navratri. Exercising regularly also helps get a toned body which results in maintaining that youthful glow on your skin,” suggests fitness trainer Ravi Rawal.


Food: Eating right is pivotal if you want to have glowing skin, suggests dietician Sohini Shah. “Healthy diet and eating on time are key factors to getting that beautiful glow on your face. Drinking enough healthy liquids helps in flushing out toxins from your body,” she says.
