We connected with Samta Varia, CEO and Founder of Shaadi Shop, to learn more about her beauty tips and regimens for staying gorgeous on the go.
“I wish I could do more with my beauty regimen but with so little time outside of running my startup, I try to maximize bang for time. That also applies to shopping. I use a lot of natural products and things I always have at home, rather than a lot of specialty items.” We agree- using natural products is great for your skin and overall health. Plus, when you’re traveling it’s easier to find these products in stores. Getting too attached to a specific brand or product can leave you out of luck when you’re abroad and your favorite brand is nowhere to be found.
Samta’s tip for eye wrinkles and dark circles: Almond Oil
While working long days, getting little rest, and operating in different time zones, it’s easy for fatigue to catch up to you. We all want to look our best while on the go, and it can be tough to get rid of dark circles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Samta suggests using a cotton ball to massage a dab of almond oil under your eyes every night before going to bed to minimize wrinkles and reduce dark circles under the eyes.
Samta’s tip for protecting your feet: VapoRub
“My startup, ShaadiShop, is like AirBnB for Indian wedding venues. I meet with a lot of hotel and venue executives, which means I’m walking in heels often.”
To protect your feet and ease the pain, wash your feet every night and then apply a generous layer of Vick’s VapoRub. Don’t forget to put socks on- you don’t want that goo all over your floor or sheets!
Samta’s tip to hydrate your skin: Warm Lemon Water
We stress that hydration is one huge factor in feeling and looking great. Especially when it comes to radiant skin. But there are a few more things you can do to maximize its effectiveness. Drink two glasses (16 oz.) of warm water with lemon juice first thing in the morning.
“Warm water is great for blood circulation and eliminates fat deposits in the body; and lemon is a cleaning agent, that’s why it’s in soaps and detergents. Combining the two is a powerful force for hydrated, great looking skin! Bonus points for doing this first thing in the morning — on an empty stomach — for the most impact!”
