Tired of trying market-based synthetic face packs that promise you glowing, smooth and radiant skin? However, a great alternative to your expensive beauty products in the market is fruit face packs which are quite effective, have no side effects and are cost- efficient as well. The homemade fruit face pack is natural and easy to make and gives you clear, smooth and glowing skin with regular use.

Here are some fruit face packs that help you achieve a beautiful glowing skin that you always wanted.

Mango
Mango is rich in Vitamins A and C, E and a host of skin rejuvenating formulas. It contains antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory effects on your skin. Mango softens, nourishes and brightens the skin. Take 3 tablespoons of mango pulp and mix with one teaspoon of ground almonds, oats and lemon juice. Apply on the face, avoiding the lips and area around the eyes. Wash off after 20 to 30 minutes.

Take slices of ripe mango. Mash it until it is smooth and add one teaspoon of multani mitti (fuller’s earth) to make a thick, smooth paste. Apply this paste your skin around face and neck and wash it off after 30 minutes to get supple and glowing skin.

Ripe papaya
Papaya has so many benefits that it used to be called “the food of the angels.” It is a rich source of anti- oxidants, like Vitamins A, C and B, folate and pantothenic acid, as well as minerals like potassium,
copper, and magnesium. Papaya contains the enzyme papain which helps to soften and remove dead skin cells, making the skin clearer and brighter. Mix 3 tea- spoons of ripe papaya with 3 tea- spoons of oats and one teaspoon each of curd and honey. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes and wash off with water. It softens the skin and adds a glow.

Alternatively, mash a few slices of ripe papaya until it is smooth. Add a few drops of honey and lemon juice to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the face for 30 minutes and wash it off with fresh clean water.

Take two pieces of papaya and one tablespoon of honey. Blend the papaya into a smooth pulp and add the honey to it. Once you have gotten a thick consistency, apply the mixture on the face and wash it off with cold water after 30 minutes and apply moisturiser for glowing, radiant and supple skin.
Mix one tablespoon of grated apples, ripe papaya pulp and mashed banana. Add oats to make a mixture that does not drip. Apply it on the face, avoid- ing the lips and area around the eyes. Leave it on for half an hour. Wash off with plain water. It not only adds glow but also cleanses the skin and removes tan.

Banana
Banana is one of the richest sources of potassium and also contains Vitamin C and B6, silica,
potassium, and other nutrients. It is extremely nourishing for the skin, not only due to its vitamin content but also because potassium helps to soften the skin. Banana helps clear hyperpigmentation and protects the skin from sun damage. It is a perfect ingredient for dry and sensitive skin and tightens and tones the skin. The banana pulp can be added to the egg white and one teaspoon honey. Leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes and then wash it off. Almond oil may also be added to the pack, especially during the dry winter season.

Apple
Apple contains a wealth of vitamins and minerals. It is a wonderful skin toner, helps to tighten the skin and stimulate blood circulation to the skin surface. Apple contains vitamin C that helps build collagen. It contains powerful antioxidants and polyphenols that protect your skin from UV damage and ageing

Apple also contains fruit acids, which have a powerful cleansing effect on the skin, removing dead skin cells. This helps to brighten the skin and gradually clear away blemishes, like dark spots. It helps to achieve healthy, glowing and youthful skin.

Raw apple pulp or apple juice can be applied on the skin daily and then washed off after 20 minutes. Grated apple can be added to face masks. Mix oats with curd, honey and apple pulp or grated apple into a paste. Apply on the face and wash it off after 20 to 30 minutes.

Pomegranate
Pomegranate is a rich source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. It’s excellent for skincare, as it helps to moisturise the skin. The pomegranate also helps to improve the skin’s moisture retention ability too. Used regularly on the face, it can remove tan, lighten skin colour and also brighten the skin.

Pomegranate juice can be mixed with lemon juice in equal quantities and applied on the face. Rinse
off after 20 minutes with water. Pomegranate peel can be dried and powdered and used in face packs. Mix two teaspoons each pomegranate peel powder and multani mitti with enough rose water to make a paste. Apply on the face, avoiding the lips and area around the eyes. Wash off when it dries.

Grapefruit
Both pink and red grapefruit are said to be rich in Vitamin A, carotene and lycopene. They are also rich in Vitamins C and A, as well as potassium and magnesium. Additionally, they contain B- Complex Vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, copper and phosphorus.

Like other citrus fruits, grape- fruit also has a cleansing and toning effect on the skin. It is particularly good for oily and pimple-prone skin. It reduces oiliness and also helps to reduce tan with time.

VIDYA BALAN GETS CANDID ON REAL-LIFE LIONESSES

Published

on

MUMBAI: Vidya Balan, who is currently basking in praise after the release of her action-thriller movie ‘Sherni’, says she thinks every woman is a lioness in real life, much like the character she played in the film. “Every woman is a ‘Sherni’. A few of them are bold and badass; while others are introverted just like Vidya Vincent, but does that make them inferior? I think they have the ability to do the right tasks in the right ways— even if that makes her liable for punishment”, says Vidya in a conversation with ANI. The actor essays the character of Vidya Vincent- an upright forest officer, who powers through the brutal beasts of social barriers set by the patriarchal society and the lackadaisical attitudes within her department.

“Vincent gets a transfer in the movie but she continues to work with honestly! So, I think every woman is a ‘Sherni’,” says Vidya on the fictional story which is about the journey of a forest officer who strives for balance in a world of man-animal conflict. The actor also shared that she was excited to sign the Amit V. Masurkar directed film because of the concept that the movie will be shot in a jungle. “Amit didn’t have the script when he came to me, he just narrated to me the plot and the concept of the film and I was so impressed by the very fact that it will be shot in a real jungle,” says the 42-year-old actor. The movie showcases Vidya’s incredible journey, set in a world full of quirky yet relatable characters, as she navigates through her marriage with her rather unusual job, all this while trying to resolve the man-animal conflict. The movie also has an eclectic mix of actors like Sharad Saxena, Mukul Chaddha, Vijay Raaz, Ila Arun, Brijendra Kala and Neeraj Kabi in key roles. On a related note, Vidya also shared her excitement on the trailer launch of the movie earlier, and said, “The film deals with a sensitive topic that touches upon respect, mutual understanding, and co-existence, not just between man-animal, but between humans as well. It gives me immense joy to bring this unique character and story to the global audience through Amazon Prime Video and hope to engage them in unexpected ways,” she says. Directed by Amit Masurkar of ‘Newton’ fame, the film will premiere on Amazon Prime Video. Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra and Amit Masukar, the film was released on Amazon Prime Video on June 18, across the globe in 240 plus countries.

Author-turned-filmmaker Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s next Hindi venture Broken Frame is all set to travel to Madrid for ImagineIndia IFF Madrid 2021. The film is based on Mukherjee’s short story collection Long Island Iced Tea. The film brings two celebrated actors Rohit Bose Roy and Ritabhari Chakraborty as an on screen couple for the first time. Talking exclusively about the selection, Festival Director Qazi Abdur Rahim from Spain says, “After watching Ram Kamal’s Broken Frame, I remember Don Quixote’s famous quote, ‘Love and desire are two different things; not everything that is loved is desired nor everything that is desired is loved’. Director Ram Kamal beautifully evolves in his latest film around similar thoughts.

Wonderfully shot by Modhura Palit, the film sees Ritabhari Chakraborty as a gorgeous Moushumi as she melts you down with her heartwarming performance to those who demand quality in cinema. Broken Frames will be shown in the Competitive Section for Shorts at Imagineindia IFF Madrid 2021.” Produced under the banner of Assorted Motion Pictures and GeeDee Productions the film is produced by Aritra Das, Sarbani Mukherjee and Gaurav Daga. Speaking about the selection, lead actor Rohit Bose Roy says, “I am over the moon that our labour of love, Broken Frame has been selected at the prestigious festival. To be showcased amongst other jewels of cinema is in itself an achievement to be proud of. I have known Ram Kamal as a journalist, author and editor of a reputed magazine. Now I am fortunate enough to know him as a passionate filmmaker also.”

Ram Kamal will be scoring hat trick at Madrid, with Broken Frame, as his earlier films Season’s Greetings and Rickshawala were also selected at the prestigious film festival. “I am extremely happy to know that my Hindi film Broken Frame will be competing with cinemas across the globe. I am excited that our cinema is creating that impact worldwide. I guess as a filmmaker I feel proud to represent my own country on a global platform and hope I can do that everytime I attempt to make a movie. I am grateful to Mr Qazi Abdur Rahim and Spanish jury members for accepting our film.”

Producer Aritra Das and Gaurav Daga says, “We are extremely happy and honoured that our cinema will be sharing a platform with world cinema. Our director Ram Kamal is talking about a subject that is so contemporary and relevant amongst youth and married couples. This is a subject that anyone can relate to and react to.” The screenplay and dialogues are written by Sameer Satija, while the music is composed by Shhailendra Kkumar and 9Emotions (Dhrubo Siddharth).

Leading lady Ritabhari Chakraborty shares her emotional journey with the film. “I am on cloud nine, because Madrid is a prestigious festival and our film will be competing with cinemas from various parts of this world. Dada (Ram Kamal) made such a beautiful film that every woman and even men would relate. I have come from a broken family, I have seen what my mother had to go through. While playing Moushumi in the film, I felt that I am going through the same emotions that probably my mom went through. This film will always be very close to my heart.”

AMYRA DASTUR PROVIDES COVID RELIEF TO THE DISTRESSED

Published

on

Amyra Dastur believes in giving back to the society by doing some good and noble deeds. Amyra Dastur says “We should pay attention to small NGOs and do our research while helping COVID stricken people & families.” Bollywood actress, Amyra Dastur has always been known to voice her opinion in subjects that matter and are relevant. This time is no different.

The Tandav actress has surely been doing her bit by providing aid during this pandemic which has affected and displaced millions of Indians. COVID-19 has deeply affected the world and uprooted several families, adversely affecting their health and financial status. The Mumbai based starlet decided to initiate her own CSR activities by stepping up and lending a hand to the families in need. Instead of simply donating money to notable NGOs, Amyra has been doing her research and helping those who have no shelter or support from these big charitable organisations.

She has been tapping small scale NGOs who are not privy to big donations and helping them gather funds and attention to feed those families who have no source of income to put food on their tables on a daily basis. She also has been assisting those households who have more mouths to feed, in other words, families with lots of children. Amyra Dastur spoke to The Daily Guardian and told us about her noble cause towards the society. “3,200 rupees is all it takes to feed a family of 4 for as long as one month! I urge everybody to help and donate in any way they can to these families but to also carry out their homework and help those NGOs who are working on a small scale without a well known face or corporate backing” said Amyra.

She further adds “The smaller NGOs are the ones who need donations and they’re often overlooked because they aren’t as well promoted or as popular as the bigger NGOs but I know for a fact that the small ones make the biggest impact. We should pay attention to small NGOs and do our research while helping COVID stricken people & families. Our efforts pooled together will surely make a difference to the world in the long run” Amyra feels it is also her responsibility to shed light on households who have lost their main income earners due to the pandemic among others who are in need. She’s managed to send food to 30 families.
