BEAUTY TIPS STRAIGHT FROM NATUREGurpreet Kaur
Just mix equal parts of yoghurt and oatmeal with turmeric. Mix, apply, and leave for half an hour and wash off with lukewarm water.”
Ok, before you make that guess, sorry it is not my grandmother sharing one of her tried-and-tested beauty care rituals. I am reading the recipe that Priyanka Chopra relies on to keep her face young and radiant. She waxes eloquently about ‘family secrets that work like magic!’
And, it seems she is not alone in this fan club of natural beauty rituals. While it is oats and yoghurt for Priyanka, Kate Middleton relies on rosehip oil to give a natural glow to her skin. Some of the most watched faces in the world have created their DIY face packs, scrubs, hair care mixes and moisturisers.
And, for us lesser mortals who are longing to tap into the eternal fountain of youth these stars seem to possess, it helps to know that we should raid our kitchen firsts. Some of those ingredients we use daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner have many celebrities cooing over their magic effect on the skin or hair.
Remember Kareena Kapoor’s beauty care videos during the lockdown? She made those DIY face packs a hot-selling product! Especially the one with sandalwood. And she is a self-proclaimed fan of honey. “For me, the best home remedy is honey—it cleans and softens my skin. I apply a light layer to my skin, massage it for a few minutes and then wash it off,” she says in an interview published by Vogue.
And this list goes on. Sonam Kapoor uses coconut oil on her lips, eyebrows and eyelids, and Alia Bhatt loves to put on a Multani mitti face pack while it is aloe vera for singer Alicia Keys.
Yes, we know the magic that natural ingredients can create on our faces or hair. Before the DIY skincare treatment became a rage and a ritual endorsed by celebrities, we have seen the change that a pack of milk and turmeric made to the face or how shiny the hair looked after rubbing yoghurt on the scalp.
