Winter is here and we are all set to welcome it with much galore, celebration and
festivals. Naturally, these end-of-year events call for stepping it up a notch and
looking extra special; while this may sound a bit exhausting, look no further than
your kitchen shelves and rediscover the benefits of our own humble Mustard Oil ,
the goodness of which our grandmothers never tire of telling. On the same note,
Umesh Verma, Spokesperson at P Mark Mustard Oil has pointed some beauty
benefits of using Mustard Oil and looking your best this party season.
1. Imparts a natural Skin Glow: Since centuries Indians have been applying
Mustard Oil as body oil for massage before their baths. One can use it to
massage dry areas prior to a bath. For removing tan, mustard oil can be mixed
with besan, yogurt and lemon juice and used as a body pack.
2. Prepping your skin: Dry patchy skin is a common problem that we all face
during harsh winters and this can be a major hindrance while getting ready for a
party. One can apply a few drops of mustard oil and rub it along the face, let it
remain for few minutes before washing it in water. The skin becomes smooth and
ready for applying foundation and make up.
3. Perfect Hair Care: Who doesn’t want a glossy healthy mane to go with that
perfect dress and makeup? Applying mustard oil regularly on the scalp takes
care of winter hair woes like dandruff, itchy scalps, hair fall etc. One can do a hot
oil treatment at home with mustard oil and wash off hair with a mild shampoo to
experience healthier, shiny locks this season.
4. Protects your lips: Chapped dry lips can play havoc on the overall appearance.
Applying a few drops of mustard oil can heal chapped lips and is safer than
packaged lip balms. Ironically, one of grandmothers’ old remedies say that
sleeping with a drop or two of mustard oil on your naval will give you baby soft
lips in the morning.
