6 DIY natural masks and oils that Mira Rajput Kapoor uses for glowing skin and glossy hair
3. Basil anti-acne spot treatment
When a “big ugly zit,” pops up, Rajput Kapoor likes to eschew the strong pens and spot treatments for a basil-based skincare treatment. “I figured this hack out when I was facing PCOS-like acne conditions,” she shared. She likes to steep basil in water and apply it onto the zits, owing to its anti-inflammatory nature. “It is going to settle, reducing the redness and the bump,” she confirmed.
4. A 4-step glow-boosting facial
Rajput Kapoor confessed that she’s never actually gotten a professional facial, even before her wedding. “There’s this concept of bridal facial and I was like no way, I’m not letting anyone else touch my face,” she shared.
Her first step? Applying half a lemon to her face. “The nimbu fibres become brush-like. It is highly acidic but I like the after-effect,” she shared. Then, she puts on a gram flour and yoghurt mask, with optional mix-ins that include orange peel, sandalwood, moringa powder, neem powder, saffron and rosewater. “My kids love looking at me when I have this mask on, they get a really good laugh,” she shared. After the mask, she likes using tomato juice on her face (owing to the brightening malic acid) and then finishes off by slathering on aloe vera. “The last step is aloe vera, which just cools your skin, tightens it, tones it. I can feel that my skin is breathing, it is really refreshed,” she confirmed. Her #1 trick? “Don’t forget to put all this stuff on your neck as well.”
