Natural Beauty: What to Eat and Avoid for a Healthy Holiday Glow
What to Eat and Avoid for a Healthy Holiday Glow: Simple activities that won’t take up much time but will make a difference in the way you look and feel if done intentionally and on a regular basis? Suparna Trikha, our beauty guru, has some suggestions.
Most of us are now frantically preparing for the holiday season. There’s a lot to do! We’ve got a lot on our plates between decorating the house, buying new outfits, seeking recipes for a big feast, and organising and attending several parties.
All of this may be demanding, and one must take care of oneself; remember, it’s not just about looking nice, but also about feeling well, which involves some work.
In recent years, I’ve come to feel that many of us no longer enjoy our festivals because we are so worn and weary by the time we have organised everything that, while we may be smiling during our pujas and parties, our complexion and hair look tired, and so do we.
So, what are some of the things we can do to look and feel better this holiday season? Simple activities that won’t take up much time but will make a difference in the way you look and feel if done intentionally and on a regular basis? Here’s what I would suggest:
Festive Skin and Haircare – Easy Steps to Look and Feel Great
Most Indian celebrations include the consumption of dry fruits. With all of our holidays come a lot of dried fruits, which we save in jars to use later. Here’s a great method to use those almonds that won’t make you gain weight! Soak at least ten almonds and consume them daily after peeling.
If you don’t have time, prepare a tiny package with a handful of raisins, figs, almonds, walnuts, and cashews and have it in your handbag at all times. Snack on when you’re craving fatty savoury snacks.
Almond milk is extremely delicious and can be produced at home with a standard mixer. Drink a tiny glass of this every day to keep your energy levels up.
The holiday season and changing weather have an effect on the skin, making it uneven and lacklustre. Dry fruits may also be used to produce a fantastic face scrub that will wake up your skin and nourish even the driest and patchiest skin.
