With the weather getting cooler, our skin turns drier. To give your skin and body the right amount of moisture in chilly winters is quite a task.
You don’t have to spend thousands of of rupees on lotions and creams, just look into your kitchen shelves and rediscover the benefits of the very humble mustard oil. You might not be aware of the goodness of mustard oil, so be prepared to be surprised by the amount of beauty benefits it offers.
Prepping your skin:
Dry patchy skin is a common problem that we all face during harsh winters and this can be a major hindrance while getting ready for a party. One can apply a few drops of mustard oil and rub it along the face, let it remain for few minutes before washing it in water. The skin becomes smooth and ready for applying foundation and make up.
Imparts a natural skin glow:
Since centuries Indians have been applying Mustard Oil as body oil for massage before their baths. One can use it to massage dry areas prior to a bath. For removing tan, mustard oil can be mixed with besan, yogurt and lemon juice and used as a body pack.
Perfect hair care:
Who doesn’t want a glossy healthy mane to go with that perfect dress and makeup? Applying mustard oil regularly on the scalp takes care of winter hair woes like dandruff, itchy scalps, hair fall etc. One can do a hot oil treatment at home with mustard oil and wash off hair with a mild shampoo to experience healthier, shiny locks this season.
Protects your lips:
Chapped dry lips can play havoc on the overall appearance. Applying a few drops of mustard oil can heal chapped lips and is safer than packaged lip balms. Ironically, one of grandmothers’ old remedies say that sleeping with a drop or two of mustard oil on your naval will give you baby soft lips in the morning.
