Nanis/dadis (Grandmothers) know best, don’t they? Right from knowing the magical properties of some natural ingredients to using them wisely and cutting off what’s extra, grandmothers have always passed on their skincare wisdom onto us. So, let’s revisit some of these Rootnatural skincare secrets and try following them again, maybe?
- What you eat is what you become The more natural you eat, the brighter the skin’s glow. Eating is something that our grandmas and moms keep stressing about. So, trade that morning caffeine hit with a glass of warm water and lemon juice and observe how it subtly cuts down the excess fat while keeping the digestive tract clean.
- Drink water and more water Water enhances the glowing process for your skin. So, drink as water as much as you can. The ultimate hack is to keep a sipper handy and keep sipping water as and when you get reminded of it. A dehydrated body leads to dehydrated skin, which is certainly not what we want. Avoid aerated drinks.
- Buttermilk/Lassi as face wash Ditch that trip to the parlour for a facial. Instead, make some lassi or buttermilk and wash your face with it. The results are spellbound, and you’ll find yourself coming back to this hack over and over again.
- Beauty sleep is greater than anything else Eight to nine hours of peaceful sleep is mandatory for any individual. Minimize the number of binge-watching nights and sleep, for skin’s sake (see what we did there?). Sleeping well is one efficient way in which you can pamper your skin. Also, before going to bed, wash your face, and apply serum and moisturizer. A goodnight’s sleep as such allows your skin to heal and recover.
- For fairness use tomatoes This one’s famous among all grandmothers! Tomato peels or orange peels help reduce tanning. Just wash your face with water once and rub a tomato peel or an orange peel all over your face.
- Ghee is a natural moisturizer Keep cracked lips, especially during winters, at bay by applying ghee, butter or the scum of boiled milk. These elements are natural moisturizers and keep lips moisturized at all times. These hacks by our lovely grandmothers (Nanis/dadis) are evergreen and won’t ever go out of style.
