Basak suggests to properly rinse your hair with luke warm water. Make a simple hair pack by soaking a few fenugreek seeds in four tablespoons of curd. Apply this pack on your scalp and leave it for 30 minutes. For deep conditioning, you can also apply a mixture of honey and olive oil. After that, just wash the hair with a good shampoo. Shikhee Agrawal, Head- Training, The Body Shop India, also lists some tips and tricks: She suggests that one should just rinse their face with plain cold water at first, and then apply a cleansing cream or a face lotion all over it. This would help in deep cleaning the pores of your skin. It is very important that all the impurity and toxic substances release out of your skin pores. So it is advisable to use a cleanser containing less of chemical elements and more of natural ingredients like Tea Tree. “After a full day exposure to the sun and harmful hues and toxic elements flying in the air all throughout the day, our eyes become really stressful. Apply good and efficient eye cream full of vitamin E before dozing off to sleep. This will make you feel fresh next morning, and will also clear your dark circles overnight,” she states.last_img
