Ponds BB+ conducted a skin, beauty and fashion masterclass at the training camp of Ponds BB+ Healthntrends Style Diva at the Sayaji Hotel, Pune. The 16 contestants met Dr Rashmi Shetty, renowned dermatologist and expert from the Pond's panel of experts and Jasleen Kaur Gupta, co-founder of the blog Bombay Fashion and editor, Be Beautiful. The two experts doled out tips and tricks on basic beauty rules, skin care routines one must follow and fashion essentials. There were workshops and practical DIYs that were shared during the sessions. Take a look at what went on at the Ponds BB+ masterclass and arm yourself with some great hacks.
The divas were guided by Dr Rashmi Shetty where she doled out some handy tips on how to be skin ready at all times. She kept on harping on the fact that, “beauty that is now is not going to last forever unless it is not nourished and nurtured.” She shared tips for times when one is sleep deprived, or has a tight schedule and looks tired due to it or when there are breakouts due to the constant usage of makeup. At a workshop, she showed the pretty ladies makeup tips on how to keep your skin flawless and hydrated with the help of BB+ cream, added with guidance on the right amount to use and the right manner to massage it on to the skin.
After an elaborate yet enthralling masterclass, the contestants were given a chance to ask their doubts from the expert, Rashmi Shetty. She generously helped them with practical tips that the divas can use in their daily lives.
-- For fresh looking skin, it is very important to protect your skin against sun tan.
-- You should follow a cleansing routine with the right face wash based on your skin type and a moisturising night cream.
-- Eye skin is sensitive and if you love doing up your eyes every time you step out, you need to use a good eyecare cream. Apply right pressure, in circular motion clock n anti-clock around the eyes to relax your eyes.
-- Dull skin, patchy complexion, acne and marks, dark circle and hair fall are common problems during the 20s. But all these can be fixed with the right lifestyle- sleep, diet, exercise...
-- You may need some supplements to battle the various deficiencies like iron, B12, D3, calcium and vitamin. Consult your physician regarding this. Also, examine hormonal problems.
-- Excess protein intake can also play havoc on your metabolism and subsequently on your skin. Therefore, stick to natural protein.
-- Always invest in good beauty and makeup products since you will be using them often on your skin.
-- Also, check for expiry dates for your makeup goodies and do not use them for a prolonged period.
The divas then went into a fashion masterclass with Jasleen on what basic essentials should be included in their wardrobe - clothes, accessories, makeup et al.
Some of her tips that all women can use:
-- Quality should always dominate your wardrobe more than quantity.
-- Use a budget to be a practical shopper rather than an impulsive one.
-- On the day when you do not know what to wear, have yourself a go-to wardrobe.
-- Sometimes when you are wearing a jacket, you needn't even wear, just draping it over your shoulders makes a chic style statement.
-- The one and most important rule to nail the no makeup look is ‘less is more’.
