  7. a very happy Valentine’s day! :) my favorite DIY for my skin is not just one but quite a few. I don’t really go to parlours for facials, etc. I do it myself using homemade packs and everything natural! I use fresh curd during the winters to heal dry skin and it makes my skin very supple and soft. also makes it look bright and fights acne since it contains salicylic acid. also I use coffee powder with a little bit of curd for exfoliation! does a great job. baking soda with water too! I use mashed strawberries and lemon to get rid of oily skin during summers! these are my favorite DIYs. my FB name is Oshin Fisheyes.

  8. my favorite DIY for my skin is Honey-Oats Face Scrub which is so easy to prepare Combine 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon finely-ground almonds, 2 tablespoons dry oatmeal, and some lemon juice or yogurt to a luxurious and exfoliating facial scrub. Massage mixture gently onto the face, then rinse with warm water. This blend gives a deeply emollient cleansing to the pores on my face. Almonds and oats are superb softening exfoliants.

    Happy Valentines Day to everyone! <3

  20. For hair: take ONE BANANA AND MIX IT WITH HALF TEA SPOON HONEY.. keep MIXING AND YOU CAN ALSO ADD OLIVE OIL IF YOU WANT A SMOOTH MIXTURE.. APPLY IT ON YOUR HAIR FOR 30 MINUTES AND THEN RINSE. trust ME GUYS, THIS IS THE ONLY HAIR TREATMENT I DO AND IT HAS CHANGED THE TEXTURE OF MY HAIR COMPLETELY. IT WAS RECOMMEND BY MY STYLIST WHO IS MY CLOSE FRIEND ND I CAN’T THANK HER ENOUGH. (Oops caps lock was on) :P

    For face also i use the same banana and honey mixture. This was recommended to me by my cousin and my cousin got to know it during her pre-bridal treatments in a salon. The lady told her that applying mixture of mashed banana and honey is the best facial treatmnet you can give to your skin. It adds natural glow to skin, prevents pre-mature aging, removes tan and gives bridal glow to face. What you have to do is apply this paste on your skin and pat your skin so that the mixture gets into the skin completely., I’m sure everyone must have heard about fruit facial, its the same and the parlor lady uses the same technique of patting.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway.. wish to get lucky <
