Tips ‘n’ more
Tips on clothes: One must do an annual re-organisation of one’s wardrobe. You have to let go of clothes that you don’t wear.
Tips on make up: If your skin is too dry, you must apply a moisturising primer before make-up. Application of primer gives smooth results. If you wake up with a puffy face or open pores, apply ice before make up. A shot of black coffee also helps to reduce water retention.
Tips on hair care: It’s very important to keep your hair clean. It helps protect your scalp from dandruff which is a big culprit behind acne too. Good hair helps in maintaining good skin.
