Dear reader, The blis­ter­ing sum­mer heat is fi­nally be­hind us with the rains bring­ing that much-awaited respite we all longed for. As I wel­come my favourite sea­son of the year, I’m thrilled to present to you our Mon­soon Mys­tique is­sue! As ex­cited as I am about the sea­son, I must ad­mit that the rains play havoc with our hair. A cock­tail of frizzy, limp, and messy is served right up—what hap­pened to the crown­ing glory that starred all sum­mer? Most im­por­tantly, your hair is bound to be wet and drip­ping through most part of the sea­son, so in­stead of bat­tling this we thought why not work it to our ad­van­tage! In our Hair Cover Story Mon­soon Mane-ia, we’ve listed quick and easy ways to style wet hair, con­vert­ing the show­ers into a fun styling tool, rather than a hin­drance. To save your hair from the dis­tress that the first cou­ple of chem­i­cal-laden show­ers pose, we’ve put to­gether a list of dos and don’ts in Be­ware of Acid Rains. Futher­more, take in­spi­ra­tion as we pay ode to the lush, rain-drenched land­scapes all around us, in our Beauty Cover Story Shades of Na­ture. These trendy make-up looks that bor­row from Mother Na­ture are bound to make you the cyno­sure of all eyes. This is­sue, we’re also tak­ing you to the Far East, as we in­tro­duce you to the world of Ja­panese and Korean beauty trends in An Asian Af­fair. Big, doll-like eyes, flushed cheeks, a porce­lain glow and even some biz­zare (but fas­ci­nat­ing!) in­gre­di­ents— there’s all this and more; we as­sure you’ll pick up a thing or two! The charm­ing TV ac­tress De­bina Bon­ner­jee chat­ted with us re­cently, read all about it in A Tête-à-tête with De­bina, where she re­veals her well-kept beauty and fit­ness se­crets. We even got noted skin ex­pert Dr. Ja­muna Pai to share her per­sonal skin­care regime in The Sci­ence of Aesthetics— you don’t want to miss this! So flip through this brand new is­sue of and make a stylish state­ment as you sail through this fan­tas­tic sea­son! Happy Mon­soons!
