Is your everyday routine getting you down? We get some expert tips for all you ladies to feel fab once again …
Women have so many roles to play, that they often tend to forget to indulge themselves along the way. In between completing work tasks, keeping the home running and attending to the family, ladies usually let go of their own needs. You don’t need to lead the life of a diva, to feel like one. Here’s how you can wow people and feel like a million bucks yourself.
A relaxing spa can make you feel like royalty. Get a seaweed wrap or facial done and see how it makes you look and feel. Invest in a weekly beauty ritual and you’ll feel charming. Pooja Bedi, a self-confessed spa-addict says, “I’m all for body massages. I love my milk and honey baths. Also, exercising not only keeps me fit but also rejuvenates me. My home has a terrace that overlooks the sea. It is therapeutic to sit and look at the waves crashing at the shore — it’s like a retreat in itself.”
Buy some sexy lingerie :
This is the key for sexiness. Purchase that bra with pink-rosebuds or that ivory corset that sculpts your body. There’s nothing like good lingerie to make you feel ‘oh-so-sexy.’ Opt for professional advice when shopping for lingerie as the right fit can lift almost five kgs off your frame.
Take out some me-time :
It could be as simple as a fun bubble-bath or painting your nails or watching your favourite girly flick for the 100th time, but taking out the time to do things that you love can do wonders for your mood. Actress Shveta Salve believes that it’s the small things that really make your day. She says, “I try and get a good night’s sleep whenever I can. Also, spending time with my dog is a great stress buster.” Model Tupur Chatterjee agrees, “Pets are the best way to release negativity. Also, I keep myself well-hydrated and indulge in light massages.”
Buy something pretty :
Retail therapy is a great cure. Get yourself the latest designer bag you’ve been eyeing or just trinkets off the street. Gift yourself jewellery or your favourite chocolate. Model Aditi Govitrikar feels that shopping wins hands down when it comes to pampering yourself. She says, “There’s nothing quite as good as shopping to lift your mood. I love picking up clothes and bags to cheer myself up. Spending time with friends also really helps.”
Dress like the stars :
The cardinal rule of good dressing is to accentuate your assets and camouflage your weak points. Find the most striking part of your appearance and play it up. Wear a cinched dress to show off a slender waist, a backless dress for a sexy back, a halter-neck top to flaunt toned shoulders and a short skirt for those endless legs. Says actress Gauhar Khan, “When it comes to pampering myself, I love to shop. Being well-dressed makes you feel great about yourself.” Last, but not the least, remember to always love yourself because that’s something that every diva swears by.
