Summer Beauty Tips for Working Women by Shahnaz Husain – Skin Care
Cleansing is of great importance for the working woman, who leaves home to get to work, battling through traffic and exposing herself to the grime and pollutants in the air. So never ever forget to cleanse the skin at night, before going to bed. This way you can remove make-up, stale sweat and oil deposits, as well as dirt and pollutants and keep your pores clean and clear.
For summer, choose a tulsi neem face wash. It would help to remove impurities, soothe and protect the skin from eruptions and rashes.
After cleansing, comes toning. Use chilled rose water or a rose based skin tonic as toner. It not only refreshes and cools the skin, but also helps to stimulate blood circulation to the skin surface and add a glow.
We often skip moisturizers during summer. However, no matter what the season is, our skin needs hydration and moisturization. A matte moisturizer is ideal for summer. For dry skin, spray on a moisture mist. If you are an working woman, then you have to travel. So apply a sunscreen. For oily skin, choose oil-free sunscreen.
Getting rid of the dead skin cells that accumulate on our skin surface is also important for a healthy skin. Use a facial scrub two or three times a week. A facial scrub helps to remove dead cells and provides deep cleansing of the skin. It brightens and refines the skin.
If you have dry skin, then apply a nourishing cream at night, after cleansing. Gently massage the cream into the skin, using circular strokes. The pressure should be more as you go upwards and slightly outwards. Wipe it off after 3 to 4 minutes of massage.
Twice a week use a face mask. Apply it on the face, avoiding the lips and area around eyes. Wash it off when it is dry.

Summer Beauty Tips for Working Women by Shahnaz Husain – Hair Care Tips
Long hair is in fashion, and it looks nice too. But while you are at work, don’t keep it open. This is more so in summer. Fussing with the hair is most distracting. Put it up in a roll or pin it up. It can also be tied back in a pony tail. Pony tails are quite in fashion and probably the best hairstyle for working women. You can have a high or low pony tail, tied back with ribbons. Match the ribbon with the color of your outfit. Or, use a hair accessory. You will find many kinds of clips and other attractive hair accessories in the market these days. But they should not be too decorative for work. Alternatively, you can curl the ends of the hair with curlers and then tie them in a pony tail, or pin then up with a clip.
Braids (plaits) also look nice for work, but it takes time to make braids. If you have long or medium length hair, you can do braids. Divide your hair into three parts and intertwine it like a rope. Towards the end of the braid, use elastic band or a ribbon to tie it up. Braids look neat on young working women.
As far as the new trends are concerned, the more natural look in hair is in. Keep the hair away from the face. If you have short hair, wear it softly and naturally layered. If you want to color your hair, use subtle colors with natural highlights.
