There was a time when I thought about working from home = Healthy and clear skin.
Yes, travelling within a city like Mumbai is dangerous for your skin. The credit goes to pollution and multiple other factors.
So when the work from home began because of lockdown, I thought, “Now my face will be cleaner and will glow.”
But damn, I was so wrong!
The work from home and our daily routine practically leave us with no time for self-care. Our body is constantly going through multiple changes and deficiencies. The main reason – We are at our desks at home all day. We are always at one place, full-time glued to a laptop or TV.
Trust me, sometimes I look at myself and wonder:
- Wasn’t my face supposed to be cleaner?
- Where have all my glow, unblemished skin, soft hands, and legs gone?
Do you feel the same too?
Our city is re-opening slower than expected, but I still don’t prefer to venture out much to visit a parlor. I’m still apprehensive about the parlor because of the current situation. The result is that my skin health is going for a toss. I keep scrolling through all the Do-It-Yourself home remedy videos on Instagram and YouTube. And trust me, they look so effective. But the struggle of finding all the ingredients, making the products, and then applying them is a task for which I genuinely don’t HAVE TIME.

Everyone says you’re working from home and hence you must have more time now. But, believe me, there’s a tremendous struggle between balancing work life and life in your home. You’re practically drained of all the energy and time. This was the time you would use to get before working from the office and returning home in the evenings. Also, there were days when we used to have a cutoff time for office work. Now it seems we work for unlimited hours. A pinch of balance life seems like a distinct dream.
We are already in August, which is the start of the festive season. From Shravan to Raksha Bandhan, it’s the onset of Festival Season in India. A parlour-like glow at home is like a must for August, the festive season, don’t you think? So it’s time you stop thinking and start acting.
Here are the simple 2 steps to get a Parlour like glow at home using the best natural products.
1.Papaya Fruit Facial Kit:
This mini-Facial kit is a blessing as its travel friendly, compact, and effective. Papaya, its key ingredient, is available in multiple exfoliating products to cleanse off dead skin cells by breaking the inactive proteins. Thus, I prefer a Papaya Fruit Facial to a regular facial. Also, the Papaya Fruit Facial kit by VLCC is simple to use and effective.

First, you will apply the Comfrey Cleanser cum Toner and massage it on your face in circular motions for 2-3 minutes. Once you’re done massaging, wipe your face with a towel.
Make a paste of Papaya Seed Scrub diluted with water. You will then apply this paste in a circular motion on your face for about 6-7 minutes. Once you’re done, rinse your face with cold water.
The next step will involve you applying the Cucumber Lotion. Apply it gently on your face until it gets absorbed in your skin.
Then take the Peach Massage Cream on your fingertips. Apply this cream for about 6-7 minutes in a circular motion on your face.
It’s time to apply the Orange Anti-Tan Mask evenly. Kindly ensure that you leave the area around your eyes and lips. After placing the mask carefully, let it relax on your face for 10-15 minutes. Then you will rinse your face with a wet towel.
