The festive season is here and we all are dying to flaunt our new dresses, accessories and makeup tricks. But having a healthy and fit body is essential to look your stunning best. Here I share a week long guide to prep you up for the upcoming occasions.

Day 1:

  • Get up at 6 (okay, not everyone can do this), and drink a glass of lukewarm water with lemon and honey. Go for a brisk walk.
  • Come back and take a bath. For your face, clean your skin with a gentle face wash as per your skin type, and use an alcohol free toner. Follow up with moisturizer and sunscreen. Wear light makeup.
  • Subscribe to Rati Beauty Weight Loss programs on the Rati Beauty app.
  • If you are going out, do not forget to slip in your sunscreen in your bag and religiously reapply it
  • every few hours. Don’t forget to carry an umbrella and your favorite sunglasses.
  • After the long day, cleanse your skin with a homemade ubtan of besan, turmeric and milk, or maida and curd. These remedies can cleanse the pores and erase tan.
  • Use this for your hands, feet and neck. Follow up with a moisturizer, hydrating cream or serum – whichever you like.

Day 2:

• After your lemon-honey water, do a bit of stretching (at least for 15 minutes). Then, cleanse your skin and apply a face pack (try a fruit pack and have a relaxing meditation session. This half an hour you devote to your skin and body would show marvelous results within few days.

• While you have your mask on, remove any existing nail polish using an acetone-free remover. File your nails as per your choice. Scrub your hands using an apricot or coffee scrub. Wash off your face pack and apply olive oil or a Vitamin E rich cream to your hands liberally. As the cream gets absorbed, apply the base coat of clear nail paint.
