What you need to do

Here’s what you need to do in order to get a makeover:

Let us start with correcting your posture. Right posture means a lot! Look into the mirror everyday, avoid the slump and try raising your shoulder blades up and back. This adds a bit of length and confidence to your look. Easy one, isn’t it? Said so…(do this everyday, why only the weekends…)

Regular skin care regimen can do wonders galz. If you are not aware of the CTM routine, then let me tell you, this would take hardly 10 minutes of your time. CTM is nothing but cleansing, toning and moisturizing the skin. Get some good cleanser, a toner (home made ones are the best – will talk about this later on) and a moisturizer (splurge on your moisturizer, it can do wonders to your skin) and follow the CTM routine twice daily. Skin experts would ask you to follow this routine at least thrice a day. But, that may not always be possible. Even I can’t do that.

Try your hands at some DIY masks. Yes, you heard me right. Masks are good for your skin and will help it stay well hydrated and glowing. Makeover doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to slap on loads of makeup to look good. Clean and glowing skin can look really good even without makeup!

Have well managed and healthy tresses. Well, this may take a bit of your effort, but all the energy that you put into hair care is worth your time. Considering that most of us don’t get time to take care of ourselves in the weekdays, weekend is the best time to do it. Hot oil massage is the easiest way to provide nourishment to your hair. A concoction of coconut, olive, almond and Vitamin E oils can work great. You can also prepare some nourishing DIY packs or masks for your hair.

Learn how to apply make up. Putting on the right make up is actually good for your skin. Considering the level of pollution, these can work as a barrier against direct skin damage. But, yes you need to invest in some good make up items, be it the primer, concealer, foundation, lipstick or kajal.

Start caring for your nails ladies. Clean your nails and apply Vaseline, on a regular basis. There must be only a few women who may not like applying nail paint. But, if you are a nail polish hoarder, just like me, make sure that you use acetone free nail remover. Regular use of nail polish and acetone based nail remover damages your nails, making them dry and brittle. Right food makes hell lot a of a difference to your nail health as well. Start following a cleansing regime for the nails every weekend and attend those free nail art sessions at your friend’s place, without a worry.

Clothes matter a lot too. Therefore, if you have any ill or loose fitting clothes, take time on weekends to do away with all those.

So, these are some of the weekend makeover tips for all the women out there. More such ideas are to follow soon. Keep watching!!!
