The festive season demands that we step out in style, every single time,  but with all the party planning and preparation, taking time for an indulgent beauty regime can be a difficult task. Fret not, because we’re here to save the day.

We have created a list of beauty services that are sure to help you stand out from the crowd without taking too much of your time and effort.

Facials

With the levels of toxins {lead pollution, junk food etc.} we ingest, coupled with giant-size portions of stress, our skin bears the brunt. Want to keep your skin glowing through the festive season? A good facial is a must.

#LBBTip: Regular facials will help you maintain optimal skin health {once a month is ideal unless you have specific skin issues like acne, hyper-pigmentation}. Even if the festive season will get over some time, make sure that skincare is something that you do not ignore at any stage of your life.

No festive prep is complete without some mehendi, especially when it comes to weddings, and let’s be honest, this is one age-old tradition we’ll never get bored of. We also love the unique elements they add to our traditional outfits.

#LBBTip: Before booking a mehendiwala for any function, make sure to give it a try {a patch test of sorts}. A skin allergy is the last thing that you will want to deal with during the celebrations. Also make sure they don’t use any dye or colouring agent in your mehendi.

Pedicures And Manicures

It’s time to shower the most used part of our body with some love. An essential beauty treatment, a good pedicure and manicure session will leave your feet and hands tingling with freshness. Don’t forget to add some coats of nail paint, and you will be ready for a night of dancing and celebrations.

#LBBTip: Stop snipping your cuticles and always keep them moisturised so that they remain healthy for a long time.

Hair Styling

We’ve all invested in hair irons, style machines and industrial-size blow dryers. At the same time, we also know that getting that gorgeous hairstyle is essential for looking your best. From perfectly-layered, easy-to-wear haircuts to hairstyles fit to go on your Instagram account, a good hair stylist can help you turn your bad hair days around.

#LBBTip: Make sure your hair is completely dry before you use any heating appliance on them.

If stepping out the house to get these seems like an impossible affair, you can always turn to Housejoy who will send trained beauty professionals to your home. With Diwali round the corner, you can also hire traditional mehendi artists from Housejoy.
