Here’s the season of beach bodies, mangoes, Glucon-D and getting tanned. We all love to get a soft tan to show off that beach body. But what’s infuriating, are those stubborn tan lines that take ages to get off. And then comes the phase of bleaching, de-tanning and immediate trips to salons. While the face tan removal might not cost much but the full body sessions dig a huge hole in our pockets. To top it off, the pedis and Manis turn into an essential.
The vacation trips might not cost as much as the post-vacay parlor stays do and we are left broke. Be it the newly hired people or the college-going students at their late teens, we all love that extra saved money for our ‘hunger pangs’ or ‘crisis junk eating’. Then we go around searching for affordable yet decent items. There’s already a myth in people’s mind that affordable skincare doesn’t work wonders. Let’s bust some myths!
As the famous saying goes, “Beauty comes from within.” and not from the expensive chemical driven products. Skincare is very important for everyone especially after hitting puberty. Taking care of skin on a regular basis after getting tanned can give some wondrous results. Splurging huge amounts on pedicures might not be a smart move for the girls in their college days or late teens but shouldn’t be an excuse for not taking care of the feet. Companies like Biotique, Vaadi Herbals etc. come to our rescue in this part with their affordable range of organic products.
Ayurveda has always been an age-old solution to every problem. Be it the skin or health issues. Vaadi Herbals believes in their knowledge of herbs and years of Ayurveda knowledge to take care of us.
