Hair - - Flavour Of The Month -

From aloo pako­das to French fries, pota­toes are ev­ery­one’s favourite! They are tasty, nu­tri­tious and a rich source of Vi­ta­mins C, B6, potas­sium and other min­er­als. Ac­cord­ing to Dr SK Luthra, Se­nior Re­search Sci­en­tist, Dabur Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre, they are also packed with beauty so­lu­tions. “The reg­u­lar top­i­cal use of potato helps di­min­ish blem­ishes, sun tan, and pig­men­ta­tion, re­vi­talise skin and re­duce dark cir­cles and un­der eye puffi­ness,” he says. Grated potato with a spoon­ful of cu­cum­ber juice is the most in­ex­pen­sive, easy and ef­fec­tive top­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tion. “As both in­gre­di­ents work well to lighten skin tone, ap­ply­ing this blend has a sooth­ing and re­ju­ve­nat­ing ef­fect on skin. While the pack is ad­dressed to both — young and ma­ture skin, it is par­tic­u­larly help­ful for dull and tired skin, with blem­ishes, sun tan and dark cir­cles,” adds Dr Luthra. Love to ex­per­i­ment? You can al­ways cre­ate your own pack by throw­ing in other in­ter­est­ing in­gre­di­ents. “A few drops of lemon juice will lighten up your face as lemon works as a nat­u­ral bleach­ing agent. While honey will bring out a ra­di­ant and glow­ing com­plex­ion, fuller’s earth or mul­tani mitti added to this pack will help to tighten skin pores. Adding rose wa­ter will im­prove skin tex­ture and help main­tain the nat­u­ral skin pH”, shares Dr Luthra. Af­ter ap­ply­ing the pack, place two cold cu­cum­ber slices to re­lax your eyes.
