Pujo! Sigh, it’s not just an event, it’s a feeling of utter excitement, energy, beauty and celebration. Every Bengali awaits this time of the year probably more than their birthdays or anniversaries. Pujo shopping starts about a month in advance and diet plans are all set so you can look your best in the fanciest of outfits. Here’s adding to your prep, some of the holy grail products that we swear by to bring out your ultimate ‘Dugga’ glow.

1. Start with your cleansing rituals

About a couple of weeks before Pujo, you can get into weekend rituals of body scrubbing, gentle washing and hair cleansing. Use ingredients that you know are good for you, trying out new things could get a bit risky. Keep in mind the weather condition leading up to the winter months. We recommend deep cleansing elements like ayurvedic cleansers, glycerin-based shower gels and coffee.

2. Treat your skin to some deep hydration

Two words for you. Sheet masks. These deep hydrating sheets soaked in serums will rejuvenate and nourish your face to give your skin a boost of hydration. Treat yourself to a few pamper sessions once or twice every week till Pujo and flaunt your stunning radiance. You could try brightening and skin-lifting ingredients like vitamin C, pearls, avocados, and seaweed.

We truly believe that styling is much easier on healthy hair. So, maintain a regular nourishing regime for your hair with hydrating and caring ingredients.

Psst, don’t forget to add some fresh flowers to your look for Pujo.

You can use them every night and wake up to fabulous, Pushpanjali-ready skin.
