Preethi….for quick fixes, you can follow the DIY’s on our blog…..scrub in two days mildly, go for a professional facial because that shows results in the shortest time. Also, on the function day, do light makeup with a foundation and compact that matches your skin :)

Thanks Jomol :) I will try to go for a facial soon. Also I will use a good foundation on the day of the function. My biggest prob are my eyes:( they jus show up too badly. Will try the remedies that our dear ladies suggest here.

Yes, if you want fast results, get a facial from a beauty salon- a good one at that.
You’ll see the difference in a day or two. Alternatively, try scrubs and facepacks as Jomol suggested. For eyes, keep wet (used)tea bags on your eyes and relax for a while. Repeat every night. Also you can keep potato slices on your eyes to brighten and depuff the eye area.

Thanks Shruti…. I will relax with potato slices on my eyes. Also will scrub and put on a pack if time doesn’t permit me for a parlour facial :)

exercise – try pilates or yoga – go for a run early in the morning – you`ll get that beautiful fluysh in the cheeks – because of better blood circulation – drink a lot of water – and do your skincare routine properly – moisturise adequately and invest in a good highlighter ^_^

I agree with ur exercise stuff…. I would love to exercise but laziness and sometimes lack of time keeps me away from it. Thanks a lot for your advise :) will definitely try to follow it :)

fruit facials do give the skin a glow.Include fruits like oranges ,watermelons,strawberry in your diet,avoid junk food and oily food with maida. Have a good sleep of atleast 8 hours

i think a face pack – bananas + honey is what i use but please read up on packs for your skin type. use a cold press even a spoon left in the freezer for some time should help to a large extent. on the day of the function do remember to splash your face with cold water and then put on light makeup. it will help the face look fresher. if you think your eyes are still not as bright as you would like it to be, dont put too much on the eyes, keep it light and highlight another feature like brighter lips perhaps. for me a bleach works well 2 days before any function but for many it dosent so thats just another option.

good luck and do let us know how it turned out..

Thanks a ton Aru… Will highlight my other features as u say :) Im not sure if bleach will suit me since i haven tried it out. will check it out.
Also will post about how the day turned out to be :)

use good concealer around eyes, brighten up with a shmmimmery shadow and do winged liner to prevent droopy look..

i will tell you a magic potion for this one…
you will need 1 tbspn chokar (the residue that is left when you sieve wheat flour)
1 pinch turmeric
very little milk (unboiled)

mix all three of then…add enough milk so as to make a paste…you dont have to make it runny…
apply it on your face for 15-20 min and rinse with warm water…then see your face glowing :)

and you can also rub tomato pulp on your face (just cut a ripe tomato into half and rub on face)…keep it for 15 min and wash with lukewarm water
