What, according to you, is going to be the biggest hair cut and colour trend of 2019? 

\r\n\r\n

I would say, curtain bangs. Bangs are already making a big comeback, and I think that’s what 2019 is going to be all about. As far as colour trends are concerned, we did see a lot of balayage in 2018, and I think this year we will continue to see balayage in the beginning of the year. But toward the latter half, I think we’ll see more block colouring. 

\r\n\r\n

What was your favourite Instagram hair trend of 2018? 

\r\n\r\n

I think it was the biggest hair trend — the lob, it was everywhere.

What is the one common mistake that most women make when it comes to hair care? 

\r\n\r\n

I think one of the biggest misconception that a lot of people have is that conditioner makes your hair flat. There are some people who don’t like using conditioner because they think it makes their hair oily or flat. But, in fact, conditioner has nothing to do with that. If you don’t condition, then the hair cuticles stay open, it becomes static-y, you get split-ends, and the colour fades. And another misconception that a lot of people have is that washing your hair everyday will lead to hair fall and that is completely untrue. The quality of the products matters, and even if you were to use inferior quality products it wouldn’t increase hair fall. 

\r\n\r\n

So, is there any way to help reduce hair fall? 

\r\n\r\n

That’s a tricky question — because hair fall happens to everyone on the planet. It’s not something that can be cured. It’s just the way the human body is built. So we lose about 100 hairs a day, irrespective of how often we wash it or how regularly we comb or brush it. Ninety per cent of our hair grows and 10 per cent is dead. And different people experience more hair fall at different stages in their life, depending on their diet, age, and health, but everyone goes through it and there are no magical tricks or supplements that can cure it. So, we just have to accept it.

\r\n\r\n

There's a lot of debate about whether one should brush one's hair regularly or not, with some dermatologists saying that you shouldn’t be brushing or combing your hair at all — what's your take? 

\r\n\r\n

I say that the only time you should be combing your hair is when you’re in the shower and your hair is wet. There’s no actual purpose to brushing it every day because it doesn’t increase growth or stimulate your scalp. In fact, brushing it every day just creates static in your hair and it gets worse if you oil it. The only time you should use a comb is when you’re washing your hair, you’ve got conditioner in and use a wide-toothed comb to comb through — that’s it. 

\r\n\r\n

What's the best way for a woman to communicate with her hairdresser, to get the cut she wants?

\r\n\r\n

I would say, go to a better salon! (laughs) So, 90% of a hairdresser’s job is communication. If a hairdresser can’t get you exactly what you want and work with you toward a style that works for you, they’re doing a bad job. I would also suggest going for a consultation beforehand, and just speak to the hairdresser about what you should get done, so that both of you are on the same page and you’re more comfortable.

Blame the weather if you may, but it could also be because of some of your daily habits. You are wondering what habits? You’ve been shampooing your hair, towel drying it and then setting it in place with a blow dryer. What’s wrong in this? To begin with, good hair requires more efforts than this and also there are few things that you aren't doing right here. Read on to find out.\r\n\r\nOver cleansing your hair\r\n\r\nWhile it’s important to keep the scalp clean, washing it frequently, almost every day will rip it off its natural oils. Using a shampoo that has harsh sulphates in it can make your hair dry and brittle.     \r\n\r\nUsing a tight hair tie\r\n\r\nThe easiest way to keep your hair from bothering you while you work from home or exercise is to tightly secure it with a hair tie. And there are chances that you put the hair tie in the same spot every day. The hair that stays tied up will show wear and tear and will break off easily. \r\n\r\nWrapping your hair in a towel after washing it\r\n\r\nThis is something you do out of habit. The moment you step out from the shower, you wrap your hair in a towel while you do your makeup and put on clothes. But this could be harming your hair. How? By the time you let your hair down, your hair is almost dry, so the products that you apply like mousse or serum doesn’t get evenly distributed. Ideally, you should apply the product to wet hair and then wrap it in a towel.\r\n\r\nUsing a brush to detangle wet hair\r\n\r\nWet hair is fragile and prone to breakage, when you try to run a brush to detangle the knots, you end up damaging the hair from the roots.  \r\n\r\nBlow drying your hair immediately after washing.\r\n\r\nThe heat of the dryer can cause damage to the hair cuticle leading to breakage. But should you completely give up on a dryer? No, you can use the cool setting on hair that’s been air dried a little, from a distance.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n","ordering_date":"2020-08-10 15:55:05","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":"cosmo","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-08/hair%20damage.gif?A0iZ6mNOS0DyT._PGw.60BE_1rti1SZd","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-08/hair%20damage.gif?A0iZ6mNOS0DyT._PGw.60BE_1rti1SZd","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/beauty/features/a21167/5-everyday-habits-damage-your-hair","created":"10 August 2020","time_created":"2020-08-10T15:54:31+05:30","created_date_time":"2020-08-10 15:54:31","field_section":"Beauty","field_section_url":"/beauty","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"uid":"636","field_first_name":"Chirag Mohanty Samal","editor_sef":"/author/636/chirag"},"field_first_name":"Chirag Mohanty Samal","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"21164","title":"Mugdha Godse Shares Her Skincare Regime That Hasn't Changed in Years!","field_dek":"Simple, fuss-free with a little bit of DIY self care, actor Mugdha Godse shares the products that keep her looking flawless.\r\n","modified":"2020-08-10 15:11:52","status":"1","field_full_dek":"When it comes to skincare, sometimes, less is more and actor Mugdha Godse endorses that ideology to a tee.

I swear by the simple skin rules of cleansing, toning and moisturising whether it is before sleeping, applying make up or even after a shower!,\" she says. So, here are her Holy Grail products: \r\n\r\nCleansing\r\n\r\n\"I prefer doing a double-cleanse while removing heavy make up, usually beginning with a M.A.C makeup wipes. For mild make up, I just go in directly with my Himalaya face wash.\"\r\n\r\n  \r\n\r\nM.A.C Demi Wipes\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHimalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash\r\n\r\nToning\r\n\r\n\"Then comes the toner. I use rose water from Kama as a toner. It is gentle and gives great hydration especially if you have combination skin.\"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nKama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water\r\n\r\nMoisturising\r\n\r\n\"The cleansing and toning remains the same for day and night. But, for day I prefer using the L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream and the Divine Cream Mask as night cream. I also like the brand's Immortelle Divine Youth Oil and it works wonders when used before make up.\"\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nL'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream and the Divine Cream Mask\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nL'occitane Immortelle Divine Youth Oil \r\n\r\n\"I also love using body butters by Nivea or Vaseline for my whole body and the L'Occitane body butter works the best for heavy winters.\" \r\n\r\nDIY Hacks\r\n\r\n\"I also have some tried and trusted DIY beauty hacks that work really well for my skin as well as hair. An instant pep-me-up for tired and dull skin is the home made turmeric and chandan powder face pack. If you just leave it on for 5 mins, it instantly smoothens the skin. I also use a natural exfoliant by mixing salt and rava and using it as a scrub once a week. A weekly application of curd or malai on my scalp helps it from not drying in winters.\"\r\n  \r\n","ordering_date":"2020-08-10 15:08:15","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"mugdha godse, mugdha veire godse, mugdha godse skincare regime, mugdha godse skincare, mugdha godse skincare tips, mugdha godse tips, mugdha godse beauty tips, mugdha godse beauty, skincare tips, skin care, loccitane divine creme, himalaya neem face wash, loccitane youth oil, kama ayurveda pure rose water, sneha ullal, arjan bajwa, rahul dev, bezubaan ishq, mugdha godse age, mugdha godse instagram, mugdha godse movies, rahul dev mugdha godse, mugdha godse death, rahul dev wife, ","field_meta_keyword":"mugdha godse, mugdha veire godse, mugdha godse skincare regime, mugdha godse skincare, mugdha godse skincare tips, mugdha godse tips, mugdha godse beauty tips, mugdha godse beauty, skincare tips, skin care, loccitane divine creme, himalaya neem face wash, loccitane youth oil, kama ayurveda pure rose water, sneha ullal, arjan bajwa, rahul dev, bezubaan ishq, mugdha godse age, mugdha godse instagram, mugdha godse movies, rahul dev mugdha godse, mugdha godse death, rahul dev wife, ","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-08/mugdha%20godse_0.png?hNqZGaokfIOmLlGbiLfOk07UeALkN.oy","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-08/mugdha%20godse_0.png?hNqZGaokfIOmLlGbiLfOk07UeALkN.oy","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/beauty/features/a21164/mugdha-godse-shares-her-skincare-regime-hasnt-changed-years","created":"10 August 2020","time_created":"2020-08-10T15:00:00+05:30","created_date_time":"2020-08-10 15:00:00","field_section":"Beauty","field_section_url":"/beauty","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"21159","title":"This Celebrity-Approved Highlighter Will Leave You With Beaming Skin!","field_dek":"Kay Beauty’s latest drop, the Illuminating Highlighter range, is the perfect product to get luminous skin in a single swipe.\r\n \r\n","modified":"2020-08-10 13:42:02","status":"1","field_full_dek":"We all crave for naturally glowing skin, don’t we?

Sorta? Maybe!  \r\n","modified":"2020-08-08 13:58:45","status":"1","field_full_dek":"\r\n\r\nSo we were mindlessly scrolling Instagram (the way all good stories start now) when we saw about 15 different influencers posting things like: ‘Letting my skin chill until further notice’,  ‘At least my make-up free face will be able to detox during quarantine’, and ‘The upside to isolation: not wearing make-up and giving my skin a break’. \r\nWe love the idea—but aren’t actually convinced if  it is right. Listen, we know this is a pretty insignificant thing to think about in the midst of a pandemic. But here we are, and TBH, a lot of us are spending more time with our reflections than usual, stress is making us break out, and endless spare time is putting us into mask-applying overdrive. So it’s normal to wonder how our skin will change as a result of all this. We got the experts to give us a preview.\r\n \r\nBare Skin Doesn’t *Always* Mean Healthier Skin\r\n\r\nFirst, this truth: most make-up isn’t intrinsically ‘bad’ for your skin. “So many foundations and even highlighters and blushes have skincare benefits now,” says NYC dermatologist Shari Marchbein, MD. \r\n“Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E, niacinamide, SPF—some make-up ingredients can do wonders when it comes to hydrating and smoothing.”\r\n“Make-up also forms a protective barrier on your face. Think of it like an insurance policy against pollution and dirt. And its iron oxides (the stuff that gives most tinted moisturisers and other products their colour) 
are one of the best ingredients out there for shielding skin from the inflammatory effects of blue light (aka the visible glow emitted from phones, tablets, and laptops)”, says Dr Shari. We know that sounds like a lot of...layers. And that you’re probs thinking, ‘But doesn’t my skin just need to breeeathe?’ Okay, but skin doesn’t actually ‘breathe’, and for the record, it doesn’t ‘detox’ either (that’s your liver’s job). It can get dry, congested, or irritated, which is why it is so important to use make-up that’s designed for your skin type and free of oils, fragrance, and formaldehyde, says New York-based dermatologist Morgan Rabach, MD.\r\n\r\nSo, if you’re wearing the right kind, make-up can actually help your skin—during the day, at least. The one time it is detrimental is at night. “That’s when skin renews and regenerates itself, and make-up impedes that critical process,” says Dr Morgan. So please remember to wash it off before bed. If you just can’t—we get it, we really do—then it’s true that for you, going bare is better.\r\n\r\nNow About That ‘Staying Inside’ Part...\r\n\r\nTheoretically, lounging in bed, binge-watching Netflix, is great for your face. “By staying inside, you’re limiting your exposure to UV rays 
and pollution—two environmental aggressors that cause significant damage to skin,” says Dr Morgan.\r\nBut (you knew there was one coming) remember that blue light? All screens essentially shove it in your face. So, if you decide to go sans make-up and binge-watch (or just stay glued to your work computer), your skin could suffer with hyperpigmentation. If you don’t want to wear make-up, the best way to protect yourself is by layering on an antioxidant serum or mineral-based SPF, says Dr Shari. “That SPF will also defend your skin against any pesky UVA rays that may creep through your windows.”\r\n     The bad news is that going make-up free and staying inside isn’t a 
one-size-fits-all secret recipe for glowy skin. \r\n     The good news is that if you want to continue to live your best life in a full beat on your couch, go right ahead. And just remember to wash your face, give it some antioxidants and SPF, and...that’s it. Now you have one less thing to worry about during these wild times.\r\n\r\n\r\nMake-Up That’s Good for You

Not only are they incredibly relaxing but regular oiling can also prevent many hair issues such as split ends, dandruff and even hair loss. \r\n\r\n\"Oils play an important in protecting hair from damage. Oils penetrate the hair and reduce the water absorbed in the hair. It fills the gap between the cuticle cells and prevents aggressive substances to enter the follicle. There are multiple mineral oils and vegetable oils with different properties, which have been used for preventing hair damage and hair regrowth. The saturated and monosaturated oils diffuse easily into the hair as compared to polyunsaturated oils,\" says Dr Pallavi Sule, dermatologist and aesthetic physician.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nShe also adds that certains oils are great to target you specific hair problems. \"Sometimes oils can cause allergic reactions, especially if you like using essential oils in your blends, so before applying on scalp and hair, one must do a patch test over skin behind the ear. Incase no redness or irritation, they can continue to use it,\" she says.\r\n\r\nSo, here are Dr Sule's recommendations to upgrade your routine.\r\n\r\nCoconut oil for hair loss\r\n\r\nThis oil is proved to reduce protein loss from the hair shaft. The fatty acid present in coconut oil –Lauric acid, penetrates the hair shaft forming a protective film. Thus, coconut oil can be used for all hair conditions like dry hair, frizzy hair, to condition and protect normal hair. It has heat protecting property and also prevents UV damage.\r\n\r\nCoconut oil is rich in anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.\r\n\r\nArgan oil for frizzy hair\r\n\r\nArgan oil has become very famous as the main ingredient in hair cosmetics. This oil is rich in tocopherols, polyphenols and is rich in anti-oxidants. Argan oil is rich in Vit A, C and E, also linolenic acid and antioxidants. This makes the oil an excellent hair nourishing agent and conditioner. Since argan oil is a great anti-oxidant it helps to reduce inflammation on the scalp, helps in the treatment of dandruff, itchy scalp, also condition like psoriasis.\r\n\r\nIt is also been used as an excellent nourishing hair mask. Application of hair mask over wet hair for about 15-20 minutes helps in the formation of protective film over the hair shafts. It seals the split ends of the hair, reducing the chance of hair breakage.\r\n\r\nArgan oil is a great anti-frizz agent, hence used in hair sprays as a great styling product giving the hair a good shine and even look.\r\n\r\nTea tree oil for dandruff\r\n\r\nTea tree oil is a popular oil, a native of Australia. It is a natural oil and is put to use as a cosmetic for its anti-inflammatory properties. The active ingredient is well known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties hence used in hair oils. Tea tree oil can actively be used for treating dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, follicular infections. It also helps kill the hair lice.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCastor oil for thinning hair\r\n\r\nCastor oil as we all know is an age-old remedy to hair fall and hair thinning. How does it exactly help? Castor oil is extracted from seeds of Ricinus Communicus plant. The active toxin is Ricin which is destroyed once the oil is heated. Castor oil is rich in monosaturated acids, which are great humectants. This property of castor oil helps lock and seal the moisture in the hair, preventing dryness.\r\n\r\nApplication on castor oil on the scalp, its key ingredient Ricinoleic acid, stimulates the microcirculation of blood on the scalp hence providing more oxygen and nutrients to the hair bulb. This helps in faster hair growth. Apart from this, it also is an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.\r\n\r\nOiling 101\r\n\r\nNow that you have narrowed down on the oil that suits you best, here's what you need to know about getting the best results:\r\n\r\n· Apply hair oil at least twice a week.\r\n\r\n· Ideally, keep the oil on your hair overnight or even 20-30 mins before you wash it off.\r\n\r\n· Some oils work best when warmed. So, heat the oil a bit and apply on the scalp with your fingertips. Gently massaging for 5-10 mins helps increase blood flow to hair bulbs. Always use a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair. After oiling tie hair into a loose bun.\r\n\r\n· Steam or a hot towel wrap given to the hair helps increasing the seepage of oil deep in.\r\n","ordering_date":"2020-08-07 15:16:03","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"ayurveda hair oils, coconut oil, tea tree oil, argan oil, castor oil, hair oiling, hair oiling tips, hair oiling routine, how to apply hair oil, how to use hair oil, how to apply hair oil correctly, hair oil how to use, hair oil best, hair oil parachute, ayurvedic hair oil, hair oil for hair growth, best hair oil brand india, castor oil for hair, coconut oil for hair, mustard oil for hair, oiling hair benefits, indian hair oiling, oiling hair overnight, applying oil to hair daily is good or bad, hair oiling routine, is oil good for hair growth, how to wash hair after oiling, oiling hair overnight, how long should you leave oil in your hair, applying oil to hair before sleep, applying oil to hair daily is good or bad, benefits of oiling hair overnight, when to apply hair oil before or after bath, india hair, heavy hair oiling stories, effects of not applying oil to hair, homemade ayurvedic oil for hair growth","field_meta_keyword":"ayurveda hair oils, coconut oil, tea tree oil, argan oil, castor oil, hair oiling, hair oiling tips, hair oiling routine, how to apply hair oil, how to use hair oil, how to apply hair oil correctly, hair oil how to use, hair oil best, hair oil parachute, ayurvedic hair oil, hair oil for hair growth, best hair oil brand india, castor oil for hair, coconut oil for hair, mustard oil for hair, oiling hair benefits, indian hair oiling, oiling hair overnight, applying oil to hair daily is good or bad, hair oiling routine, is oil good for hair growth, how to wash hair after oiling, oiling hair overnight, how long should you leave oil in your hair, applying oil to hair before sleep, applying oil to hair daily is good or bad, benefits of oiling hair overnight, when to apply hair oil before or after bath, india hair, heavy hair oiling stories, effects of not applying oil to hair, homemade ayurvedic oil for hair growth","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-08/Cosmo%20%281%29_4.png?Y99hUicdSoGzJmzvi5ahH2vPzXvm2QEr","image1x1":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-08/Cosmo%20%281%29_4.png?Y99hUicdSoGzJmzvi5ahH2vPzXvm2QEr","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/beauty/features/a21144/everything-you-need-know-about-oiling-your-hair-right-way","created":"07 August 2020","time_created":"2020-08-07T15:00:00+05:30","created_date_time":"2020-08-07 15:00:00","field_section":"Beauty","field_section_url":"/beauty","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"21142","title":"​3 Makeup Tricks to Hide Dark Circles","field_dek":"Dark circles giving you a hard time?

To brighten under eyes, many of us end up trying every possible thing, from cucumber slices to expensive serums but still, fail to see any results. But, don't give up just yet! Makeup is a simple and quick solution to hide those pesky dark circles, but you must know the right techniques. So we get makeup and beauty expert Aanshul, the founder of Glamm Me to share some makeup tricks to cover up those under eyes effortlessly.\r\n\r\nPrepping is the key\r\n\r\nSometimes puffiness under the eyes can be misinterpreted as dark circles. \"To reduce under eye bags, use small facial suction cups, designed to promote blood circulation and cell regeneration. Or you can also use the icing technique to get rid of puffy eyes temporarily,\" says Aanshul. \r\n\r\nTrick 1 - Colour correct\r\n\r\nColour correction is a technique to counter the pigmentation using complementary colours (directly opposite in the colour spectrum). It is used to cover discolouration like dark circles, blemishes, dark spots, or skin redness for an even skin tone. \r\n\r\n\"Most commonly used colour correctors are green, yellow, orange, and coral tones, but it depends on the individual's skin tone. For Indian skin tone, the orange colour corrector is the most suitable. Use your fingertips to apply thd orange corrector. Use a minimal amount else your foundation might mix with the corrector and appear orange,\" advises Aanshul.\r\n\r\nBest colour correctors (For Indian skin tone)\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nL.A GIRL Pro Conceal (Concealer), Orange Corrector, 8g, Rs 695, available on Amazon.in. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nM.A.C Studio Conceal and Correct Palette, Rs 4,450, available on Nykaa.com\r\n\r\nTrick 2 – Conceal\r\n\r\nConceal the under eye area with a full coverage concealer that exactly matches your skin tone. \"If you choose a light concealer shade, then it will turn grey. Apply the concealer in an inverted triangle shape below the eyes,\" says Aanshul. Don't forget to blend the concealer properly to avoid fine lines. \r\n\r\nConcealers you need to try:  \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHuda Beauty Overachiever High Coverage Nourishing Concealer, Rs 2,520, available on Nykaa.com\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nTarte Cosmetics Tarte Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Contour Concealer - Fair Neutral, Rs 14,008, available on Amazon.in\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nTrick 3 – Highlight\r\n\r\nIf you want to step up your makeup look, make sure to highlight the under eyes with a light shade concealer, in the same manner, you applied the concealer before. Aanshul advises you use up to 1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone to highlight your under eye area. Don't go overboard with the concealer as it might layer up, and ruin the overall look. Make sure to apply some  translucent powder to the under eye area, so that the concealer doesn't smudge or melt. Don’t overdo it else cracks may appear.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nBonus Tip \r\n\r\nStay hydrated by drinking at least 10-12 glasses of water as it helps to flush out toxins and reduce sodium concentration in the body  and thereby reduces the appearance of puffy eyes.Include aloevera gel into your daily skincare routine.

While weakening of the connective tissue, rapid weight loss, and pregnancy are front runners in the skin ageing process, the protein 'elastin' can be majorly blamed for this unfortunate turn of events. As we age there is a significant reduction in elastin and collagen production, resulting in noticeable signs of ageing, as mentioned above. Let's just say, after a certain point in time dark spots will no longer raise an alarm and unwelcome morning zits will become the new-normal. But....not just yet. \r\n\r\nMs Pooja Nagdev, Cosmetologist and Founder of Inatur shares 5 secret skincare solutions that'll do wonders for your skin. Ladies, the clock is ticking and we have absolutely no time to spare, so let's get to it!\r\n\r\n1. EGG WHITE & HONEY FACE MASK\r\n\r\nApplication: Once a week\r\n\r\n\"Popularly known for their long list of health benefits, egg whites are enriched with protein while honey is a powerful antioxidant that hydrates and nourishes the skin. They trigger skin cell regeneration, improving skin elasticity and firmness,\" informs Pooja. Separate an egg white and mix it with 1 tablespoon of honey. For those who suffer from dry skin, feel free to add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mixture. Beat it well to form a blended liquid paste, after which apply it to your face and neck using your fingers or a brush. Let it rest for approximately 10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. \r\n\r\n2. COCONUT OIL, COFFEE & RICE FACE MASK\r\n\r\nApplication: Once a week\r\n\r\nCoconut oil, along with coffee powder and rice powder make a powerful face mask that works fabulously well for skin firmness and tightening. \"A rich source of fatty acids, coconut oil boosts skin hydration, while the antioxidants in coffee slow the ageing process and rice flour propagates firming of the skin,\" she adds. Combine 1 teaspoon of coffee powder, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, and 1/2 a teaspoon of rice powder in a mixing bowl. Mix all of the above and apply to your skin and neck. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water afterwards. \r\n\r\n3. ALOE VERA FACE MASK\r\n\r\nApplication: Once a week\r\n\r\nAloe Vera, a natural moisturiser, is best known to bring firmness to sagging skin. Take a leaf from the Aloe Vera plant and peel the coating to access the gel within. Apply this jelly-like substance to your face and back and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse with water afterwards. \"The direct application of Aloe Vera gel is ideal for those with oily skin, however, if you suffer from dry skin, add a few drops of sesame seed oil or rosehip oil to the fresh gel obtained from the plant,\" states Pooja.\r\n\r\n4. CUCUMBER & MINT FACE MASK\r\n\r\nApplication: Once a week\r\n\r\n\"Well-known for it's cooling and hydrating properties, cucumber is most suitable for those with highly sensitive skin. Mint, another cooling ingredient works well in minimising open pores, thereby making the skin tight and firm,\" she adds. Grind half a cucumber and 10-15 mint leaves and blitz it in a blender. Apply this paste to your face and let it sit for 15 minutes. Next, rinse your face with water and pat dry.\r\n\r\n5. YOGURT, LEMON & OATS FACE MASK\r\n\r\nApplication: Once a week\r\n\r\nIndulge in a skin-firming yogurt and oats mask this weekend! Take a tablespoon of yogurt and add it to a tablespoon of oat flour.

Celebrity Hairstylist Rod Anker Answered the Most Burning Questions About Haircare

From trends to haircare mistakes — Rod has the answer to everything!

One can’t talk about hairdressing and hair design in India without talking about Rod Anker. The award-winning Australian hairdresser has not only created a very successful brand, but an empire that is synonymous with cutting-edge hair design and hair styling. So, when we wanted to talk hair — from trends to hair care — we obviously went straight to the expert and sat down to pick his brain on what 2019 holds for the world of hair.

What, according to you, is going to be the biggest hair cut and colour trend of 2019? 

I would say, curtain bangs. Bangs are already making a big comeback, and I think that’s what 2019 is going to be all about. As far as colour trends are concerned, we did see a lot of balayage in 2018, and I think this year we will continue to see balayage in the beginning of the year. But toward the latter half, I think we’ll see more block colouring. 

What was your favourite Instagram hair trend of 2018? 

I think it was the biggest hair trend — the lob, it was everywhere.

What is the one common mistake that most women make when it comes to hair care? 

I think one of the biggest misconception that a lot of people have is that conditioner makes your hair flat. There are some people who don’t like using conditioner because they think it makes their hair oily or flat. But, in fact, conditioner has nothing to do with that. If you don’t condition, then the hair cuticles stay open, it becomes static-y, you get split-ends, and the colour fades. And another misconception that a lot of people have is that washing your hair everyday will lead to hair fall and that is completely untrue. The quality of the products matters, and even if you were to use inferior quality products it wouldn’t increase hair fall. 

So, is there any way to help reduce hair fall? 

That’s a tricky question — because hair fall happens to everyone on the planet. It’s not something that can be cured. It’s just the way the human body is built. So we lose about 100 hairs a day, irrespective of how often we wash it or how regularly we comb or brush it. Ninety per cent of our hair grows and 10 per cent is dead. And different people experience more hair fall at different stages in their life, depending on their diet, age, and health, but everyone goes through it and there are no magical tricks or supplements that can cure it. So, we just have to accept it.

There's a lot of debate about whether one should brush one's hair regularly or not, with some dermatologists saying that you shouldn’t be brushing or combing your hair at all — what's your take? 

I say that the only time you should be combing your hair is when you’re in the shower and your hair is wet. There’s no actual purpose to brushing it every day because it doesn’t increase growth or stimulate your scalp. In fact, brushing it every day just creates static in your hair and it gets worse if you oil it. The only time you should use a comb is when you’re washing your hair, you’ve got conditioner in and use a wide-toothed comb to comb through — that’s it. 

What's the best way for a woman to communicate with her hairdresser, to get the cut she wants?

I would say, go to a better salon! (laughs) So, 90% of a hairdresser’s job is communication. If a hairdresser can’t get you exactly what you want and work with you toward a style that works for you, they’re doing a bad job. I would also suggest going for a consultation beforehand, and just speak to the hairdresser about what you should get done, so that both of you are on the same page and you’re more comfortable.
