We all are home and have the luxury of our house, the comfort is very much there in general. Ghar ka khaana, time for family (I am saying it in a positive sense) and self-pampering time is very much there. When we speak of pampering, that is an extensive topic. We can bring in aromatherapy, music therapy, a long bath, full Korean skincare routine, pedicure, facials, manicure and whatever you think will be good for your senses. Here I am just talking about our hands which do so much for us. Daily home chores, giving us a bath and what not. So why not work on them and make them glow, take away the tiredness and stop the cribbing that your hand is not very pretty (a mindset and a thought many of us have, I certainly do think that my right hand is not that pretty). So here are 4 packs that I feel will work for you as per the need and skin type.

Tan Removal

1 tbsp besan or gram flour


Mix all these ingredients in a glass jar or a steel katori and apply it on your hands and arms. Let it dry naturally and then wash it off. You will notice a glow and a clean hand. Do this every alternate day.
