October 30, 2016, 10:55 am

From glowing skin to healthy, shiny hair, here's how to look radiant at your next festive party without a visit to the salon. To look amazing in Diwali pictures, forget those Instagram filters, and just follow these skin-care tips.

Facial scrubs: Facial scrubs help brighten the skin for a beautiful glow, and nothing beats a homemade organic scrub. Mix ground almonds (badaam) with curd and a pinch of haldi. You can also add dried, powdered orange and lemon peels. And there, you have the perfect recipe for a good facial scrub.  Apply on the face and rub gently on the skin with small circular movements. Then wash off with water.  Use it twice a week. 

Natural moisturizers:  You will be surprised at the amazing moisturisers you can find in nature. If you have an aloe vera plant at home, all you need to do is scrape the gel found in the inner portion of the leaves and apply it on your face daily for twenty minutes before washing it off with water. 

Face pack:  For an instant glow, combine half a teaspoon honey, one teaspoon rose water and one teaspoon dried milk powder. Apply the paste on your and let it stay for twenty minutes. Rinse with water, and voila you're ready for your Diwali party. 

Hair conditioner : With all the heat that you end up applying while styling your hair for all those Diwali parties, a hot oil massage once or twice a week is a great idea. 

Heat olive oil and apply it on the scalp and hair. For maximum effect, dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the hot towel around your head, like a turban. Keep it on for 5 minutes. Repeat the hot towel wrap four times as this will help the hair and scalp absorb the oil better. 

Natural hair cleanser: Egg white is a wonderful natural cleanser for oily hair, plus the protein content in it also adds body to the hair. 

Apply egg white on your hair about half-an-hour before shampoo. Alternatively you can also massage egg yolk or mayonnaise into the scalp and leave it on for half to nourish dry hair. This helps in softening the hair and is great for coloured, dyed, permed, or straightened hair.  With these simple tricks, you're sure to be glowing this festive season.
