No matter how careful you are about your eating, sleeping and skin care routine, the days of festivities are bound to interfere a bit with your schedule.
You may be gorging on the sweets, exposing your skin to lots of dust and dirt as you go from pandal to pandal with friends, or just sweat it out and lose sleep as you immerse yourself in the festivities of the Ganesh festival.
And all this leads up to the tell-tale signs showing up on your skin. If you want your skin to remain and gorgeous all through the festival season and more, try these:
The First Drink In The Morning
Add a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice to a glass of warm water and have it first thing in the morning after you wake up. The hot water will act as a detox and the vitamin C in the lemon juice will cleanse your skin and add a glow.
Mind Your Breakfast
Instead of reaching out for some quick junk food, try and have something healthy for breakfast, such as a bowl of oats or fruits or homemade porridge, even homemade paratha with less oil or ghee can be a healthy and filling option. Even if you have to eat too many sweets or outside food through the day, at least you can avoid it in the morning.
Natural Face Pack

You may or may not have the time or energy left to put on a face pack at night, once you’re back home with all the festivities. So why not try some natural face pack tricks right in the morning, when you’re getting your breakfast ready? Mix a bit of sandalwood powder with some rose water and put it on your face. Leave on for a few minutes till it dries out and wash off. This is a great way to clean out your skin and make it look radiant and fresh.
Keep Some Nut Mixes Handy
Pack a few nuts in a small pouch or jar and keep it with you, so that you can munch on it if you are hungry. This will give you the energy you need through the day, and also, the nutritional properties of the nuts, such as anti-oxidant properties, the omega 3 fatty acids, the iron, magnesium and so on will keep you healthy and your skin happy.
Enjoy the days and don’t forget to apply sunscreen to keep any signs of pigmentation at bay.
