Let your skin glow this Diwali

While you spruce up your home and shop till you drop in these hectic days before Diwali, do spend some time on yourself too. Remember to drink water to keep your skin hydrated and stay away from heavy food for that flawless and glowing skin, say experts.

Sachin Dhawan, director and consultant dermatologist of Skin n Smiles, emphasises on adequate water intake and controlled consumption of fried food.

"People get so busy with the preparations that they forget to have water. That should not be the case. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. It clears up your skin and gives a healthy glow," Dhawan told IANS.

Skin gets dry and dull during the festive season. "Therefore, don't forget to moisturise your skin. Eating fried food promotes breakouts and dull skin. So if you can't resist, limit the intake," he added.

Another option is homemade face packs or masks, a natural way to get smooth, supple and glowing skin.

Sangeeta Amladi, head, medical services at Kaya Skin Clinic, doles out some handy tips.

"Tomato mask is for oily skin. Mash up a ripe tomato and leave it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water."
