Weekend is the ideal time to follow your skincare regime. Pixabay

Being an ‘urbanista’ and on-the-move throughout the week is exciting, however, there are many environmental and lifestyle factors linked to city living that can be very harmful to our skin.

Plabita Sharma, skincare expert at The Body Shop India says the weekend is the ideal time to make up for lost time with some truly necessary sleep after the chaotic work week.


“Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA. Your daily habits, in fact, have a big impact on what you see in the mirror. Ultimately, caring for your skin is simply personal. Normally working women don’t get enough time to pamper themselves with an accurate skin care so weekends are more comfortable periods where women can let their skin breathe. Weekend skincare regime help in rejuvenation of the skin and gives a fresh radiant look for weekdays,” she says.

With a busy life and limited excess to self-care during weekdays it’s very important to have some me time during the relaxed weekend. To start with, take a decent hot shower to enable your muscles to unwind followed by a light sprinkle of cold water.

Show your skin some affection with the correct healthy skin items. Replenish your skin with a moisturizing treat while you rest at the end of the week by applying a medium-term face mask.

Additionally, go for some anti-oxidants and let your skin breathe unreservedly.

Washing your face is the most significant and the initial phase for healthy skin to be centered around. Choose a face wash rich in charcoal because it cleanses away dirt and impurities and helps in unclogging pores to give soft and radiant skin. Post this, use a moisturizer to hydrate your skin.

Some of the special products to use during weekend skincare regimes are face masks, which not only improve the overall appearance of your skin, but can be quite therapeutic. Masks infused with aromatic essential oils like mint and rosemary can lift your spirit by stimulating your senses, giving a spa-like treatment at home.

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
