I am someone who LOVES doing a French manicure on myself. But I hate going to salons because the salons here that do it well cost about 1000INR and the salons that are cheap do a horrid job.
So what’s better: Wasting money for something that’ll last for a few days or doing it yourself?
I say do it yourself.
I have come up with a few ways of doing a French manicure on myself and this is one of them. This is my newest method. And I thought I’d share it with you while trying it out.
Do you know the amount of times I’ve walked into a Body Shop Store and wanted to walk out with the Lip Scruff? But for some reason I never thought it was worth paying much for something that’s going to scrub your lips. I don’t really have lips that require much scrubbing, or so I thought.
Well, My skintype is changing a bit and I feel like I need to start scrubbing the old lippies. Now I have to scrub them almost every week or else they get irritating and chapped and infuriating.
This is probably one of the most common face mask recipes in India. But so many people abroad complain that it leaves their face yellow or orange and abuse the mask. Please people, stop. Just because you did the mask wrong doesn’t mean the mask is wrong. And people who don’t know how to do this mask should stop writing posts.
First thing, very fair girls WILL become a little yellow upon using this. Just wash your face with milk and you’ll be fine, if not, wash with lemon juice. I’ve listed the simplest form of making this mask so that you cannot get it wrong. Here goes.
Turmeric is an Asian spice. The root of turmeric, yellow thing, is used extensively in India in food, medicine and beauty preps. It is traditionally used to prevent superfluous hair (although most people have stopped using it for this and forgotten about it, me included) It is an antibiotic, antiseptic and an anti ageing agent. It also keeps skin smooth, healthy, removes a tan and promotes a blemish free visage.
- 2 tbsp. gram flour/ Rice flour/ Kadalai maavu (not sure what this is in English but if you now, YAY)
- Sesame oil 1 tsp.
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (PLEASE use the cosmetic turmeric powder variety not the cooking one)
- Milk – enough to make a paste
Now we don’t really spend time in beaches in India wearing a bikini unless you live someplace like Goa. But we do wear them to the pool.
Spotted this and thought I’d share it with you.

I’m sure we can DIY it.
If you try it let me know.
I’ll probably try DIY-ing it after my exams.
