Oh those visits were my favourite ,for the pedicures and hot oil massages.
Throughout my pregnancy my beauty parlour people took great care of my hair, skin and feet.I could hardly see my feet, so foot spas were a must.
What happened when baby was born?
It was 6 months , her rice eating ceremony ,before I stepped into my favourite parlour again.
Even then I was no longer a free bird.Quick visits to the parlour with baby sleeping ,made it a stressful a fair.
Fast forward to 11 month baby. I shifted to a small town .With no help ,home, job and baby ,there simply was no time for parlour visits.
But I wouldn’t give up .
I decided to do it at home when baby was sleeping.
I put on a mudpack while baby was sleeping.
Rai wakes up spots me with the face covered in gunk.Lets of a scream . Didn’t stop crying till I got it off !
I oiled my hair .She declares I am not looking like momma.Starts saying it repeatedly with a sad face.Guess what happens?
Mommy rushes to the bathroom to get it all off .
Luckily since she became four,things are a little better.With her interest in dressing up getting higher,so is my chances of beauty care at home.
The parlour unfortunately happens once every blue moon.
So what do I use?
Disclaimer :There are affiliate links in this post.If you do click on these,at no extra cost to you ,I will receive a small commission. I only recommend products I use and love.Nothing is more important than telling you the truth about what I use .
From top to toe my favourite products which makes look great when I need to step out in style.
My mommy used to insist on warmed coconut oil and I still use it.
I also use the defabulous range of sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.
After shampoo I use a little Moroccan oil ,which gives my hair great shine.
I also use an Air straightener if I have plans of going out .
For my skin
I use a face mask by Shahnaz Hussain.It’s a Neem rejuvenating skin balm and works great to make my skin look radiant in ten minutes.NMF moistutizer is my favourite. It’s something I use for Rai and for me too.Since its nongreasy and easily absorbed I use it throughout the year.
When I go out, my L’Oréal BB cream is my favourite.The perfect pick me up for my face,without spending hours in front of the mirror.
For my eyes
I love kajal,eyeliners and mascara.I mostly use a kajal for regular use and the other too ,when I need to glam it up!
Lakme and L’oreal are my faves when it comes to eye wear.
Keeping my interest for learning new things alive ,keeps my eyes shining too.
Red Lipstick is something I love .Recently I was gifted a lip crayon by Sugar cosmetics and the shade is perfect.
I believe a dash of lipstick can make you look glam in a second .
I never,absolutely never go out without lipstick. It’s my armour against the world.
Lipstick is my favourite makeup product!
My feet I bought this handheld gadget, for heel care .Even home pedicure takes time.A mommy hack is a scrub at bath time.But even then it’s not enough specially in winters .This product gets rid of dead skin and buffs the skin to make it smooth.
It’s really good and helps keep my heels looking strappy shoe ready!
But don’t forget to put a heavy foot cream ,before going to bed.That’s very important to stop cracking and dry skin .
Five other things I don’t forget are:
- healthy diet
- positive thoughts
Keeping stress at bay is the best way to keep looking great
