DIY Beauty Recipes By Bollywood’s Girl Club Has Us Reaching Out For Ingredients In The Kitchen.
It’s been 34546 days since we’ve been quarantined. At least, it feels like that long. During this time, we’ve made dalgona coffee and banana bread and watched many a celebrity go live. We’ve also seen a lot of DIY beauty recipes being whipped up by Bollywood’s Girl Club. Admittedly, we’ve not stepped out since March except for grocery and some random visits to the doctor because now we tend to panic every time there’s even an itch in the throat. Being stuck at home does have an upside though. You have a lot of spare time to indulge in self-care, which we often ignored due to hectic schedules and running around getting shit done (and there, I miss it again). Anyway, since we are perennially bored and have some extra time on our hands, we can finally look after ourselves because let’s be honest, we are in some serious need of TLC too. When was the last time I got my eyebrows done or had a clean-up? I don’t even remember because visiting salons in a complete no-no.
You don’t need an extensive skincare kit or fancy haircare products to get your beauty game back on track. You can trust the homemade beauty treatments and get glowing in no time. That, and because they are natural and fun to concoct, not to mention they save ton of money. Plus, don’t even have to risk your life to go fetch the ingredients; they are already sitting in your kitchen, fridge and pantry. Talking about the beauty tutorials, Bollywood actresses have got you covered. Yup, there are some pretty cool diy beauty recipes by Bollywood’s girls.
