Beauty NEVER takes a raincheck!
Why: The moisture levels during Monsoon are constantly varying and tend to be on the higher side. This makes your skin extremely vulnerable to environmental pollutants, grime and excessive sebum secretion which ultimately leads to acne, rashes and causes skin to become as dull as the weather itself.
Inspired by none other than Cleopatra’s beauty regime, a Gold Facial is being considered a beauty boon by skincare experts across the beauty-verse! A Gold-infused mask is applied on your face post regular facial care activities and then all you have to do is wait for it to work its’ magic! Gold’s anti-oxidant properties tightens skin, reduces sebum production and helps your skin radiate from within by providing protection from sun-damage.

Paraffin Manicure & Pedicure
Why: No matter the amount of TLC you indulge your hands and feet in, the rains tends to affect nail-bed areas the most. This not only makes them brittle, but also prone to infections and rashes.
Thanks to Kim Kardashian, the paraffin mani-pedi has amassed huge amounts of popularity. This involves soaking your hands/feet in a tubful of paraffin hot wax treated with essential oils. Post several soothing dips, the waxed parts are covered in hot towels and all you need to do is wait for the benefits to kick in. Paraffin properties heal battered skin, uplifts nail strength & keeps infection, calluses/corns at bay, making it the most sought-after treatment at salons & spas!

Bright Matte makeup
Why: Regular makeup that does not have waterproof properties can prove to be disastrous, just in case you are caught in the rain. Not only will it clog your pores, but also make you look like you stepped out of a horror movie.
The matte makeup look is working its’ wonders on the national & international circuits, even after a year of birth. Matte makeup is best created using waterproof make up products as they tend to be long-lasting, less runny and flawless to look at. A touch of dramatic eye colour and bright lips is all that is needed to create the perfect matte look. Try it to believe it!
