Run out of your favourite products or broken into blemishes? That too, when on holiday? We give you easy skincare DIYs that you can put together with whatever’s available in your hotel room. By Parvati Mohanakrishnan
COMING OUT OF YOUR WAX?
Apply a thin layer of hair conditioner on your legs and arms, and use the razor from the shaving kit for a close shave. Wipe off the remnants with a wet towel for smooth and moisturised skin.
DRY, FRIZZY HAIR?
Mash up a banana on a saucer and add two tablespoons of honey to it. Combine well and apply on your hair from the roots to the tips. Cover with a shower cap and leave on for half an hour before washing offff with shampoo for conditioned hair.
DRY, FLAKY SKIN BOTHERING YOU?
On a saucer, combine two sachets of white sugar with a teaspoonful of honey. Rub the mixture in a circular motion on your lips, elbows, and knees to exfoliate and moisturise dry skin. Wash off and pat dry.
DULL SKIN WOES?
Brew a cup of green tea with two bags from the tea caddy. Then keep the used tea bags in the fridge for 15 minutes. Use a cotton ball to dab the chilled green tea on your face to reduce inflammation and breakouts, and to tone your skin. Place the tea bags on your eyes for five minutes for revitalised under-eye skin.
TANNED TOO DARK?
Make a milk powder and water paste, and apply it on the affected areas. Wash off with cold water after 15 minutes for visibly lighter skin.
