Hola my lovelies….
So finally, we are back after a wonderful Diwali weekend. Seriously people, Diwali is such a hectic time indeed…. Apart from celebrations, we get to meet so many friends whom otherwise we barely find time too.
Anyways, we are back and kicking… And starting off the week is a post Diwali detox post for both skin and hair. And interestingly, these detox recipes come in from what you got in Diwali and perhaps is lying as leftovers or you can simply keep them aside for a while.
Btw, I took all the photographs from the internet as I barely had some time in hand to click pix although all the recipes shared here have been tried and tested by me… So be sure of them…

Ok… Am sure you must have got almonds for Diwali… Whether as a gift or you bought them yourself for the puja or for garnishing the sweets. Now just keep a handful aside and grind them into a little grainy powder.
The pollution levels of Diwali surely play havoc with your skin and even if you have oily skin, it does look dull and patchy. Mix this almond powder with rose water and two drops of lemon juice (for oily skin) or mix it with raw milk/curd and honey (for normal to dry and even combination skin) and apply it on your face for 15 minutes. Wet your fingers and scrub this pack in circular motions on your face and neck for 2 to 3 minutes and then, wash off with lukewarm water.
Pat dry. You will see your skin rejuvenated, glowing and much clearer. Those with oily or normal skin can also skip moisturizer after this.

The second recipe for skin involves chocolates. Am sure most of us would have definitely got atleast two to three box full of chocolates. Now, pick the variants which say atleast 50 per cent cocoa. Or rather, it you have got the dark chocolates, nothing like it. Make this chocolate liquid by putting it in a double boiler. Add some powdered oats into the paste, and honey to make a thick paste. Apply all over your face and neck and wash off with a light scrubbing motion after 15 to 20 minutes. Fresh, lovable and kissable skin is back.

So you had friends over for drink and dinner and have some Vodka left? Take it out girlies, because this is your armour for absolutely delightful hair. For those who have an oily scalp, mix a pint of vodka with juice of half a lemon (the famous lime cordial ;-) and apply on your scalp for 15 minutes. Wash off with your regular shampoo. Result…… Shiny streaky hair free from all build up and ready for the upcoming chill.
Those with normal or dry hair can use this. Mix a pint of vodka with a spoonful of honey and 6 drops of your favourite essential oil. Apply on the scalp and even hair and wash off with your favourite shampoo after 20 minutes. Results : Buildup free, soft lustrous hair.
See…. Simple na! Hope you all loved these cute little recipes that would definitely detox your skin and hair and prepare them well for the coming chilly season.
