Winter has come, the coziest season of the year!

Winter-Care-Reliancefreshdirect-Main

From enjoying warmest blanket and sleeping till late in the morning to the most delightful time to travel, there are many reasons to fall in love with winter.

Gear up Foodies! This is the time when our digestive systems function better & also there’s various green leafy veggies available only during winter.

Mouth-watering and healthy recipes like Gajar Ka Halwa, Makke Di Roti, Sarson Da Saag, homemade soups etc. are simply delicious & irresistible.

Apart from gorging on food and adding on extra calories, we also need to take an extra step to pamper our skin during winter months as the dryness in the climate will make our skin look rough and dull.

So here are a few winter care tips from head to toe, follow them to protect and nourish your skin throughout the season.

1.Scalp – The skin under our hair needs essential oils such as coconut, olive or almond to keep it moisturised and to avoid itchy scalp and dandruff. Lukewarm oil before applying every week and keep it for 15-20 minutes before washing out thoroughly. You can also use anti dandruff shampoo for better results.

2.Face – Skin under our eyes is especially thin & sensitive. Keep it moisturised day and night. Though you may enjoy sun during the day a sunscreen layer is a must. Use a sunscreen 15 minutes before you step out.

3.Lips – Nobody likes chapped lips, so a lip balm with SPF is a must. Try Maybelline baby lips for smooth and 8 hours protection with SPF.

4.Body – We often forget to moisturise our body. Various body lotions are available, grab one and apply right after you freshen up to lock the moisture.

5.Hands & Feet – Unlike our face and body, hands get washed repeatedly throughout the day. Keep a moisturiser handy to use and avoid wrinkly hands. Before you slip into your blanket reach for some coconut oil or your favourite hand or body lotion, massage onto your feet and cover it with a pair of cotton socks. Wake up in the morning with supple feet.

Come let’s celebrate Janmashtami – the birthday of Lord Krishna.

Janmashtami Recipe Reliance Fresh Direct

Being one of the biggest Indian festivals in the world, this auspicious day is celebrated with great joy to rekindle the mischievous aspects of Lord Krishna.

People enact Krishna’s childhood attempts of stealing butter & curd from earthen pots beyond his reach by hanging pots of curd suspended high above the ground and forming human towers to reach & then break them. This is popularly known as ‘Dahi Handi’. There is also a cash prize attached to such events performed across the city.

On this day, houses are decorated and Krishna’s favourite food and sweets are prepared as an offering. People do invite family and friends to celebrate this joyous festival together.

For any ardent devotee preparing sumptuous dishes to pamper Krishna, is considered to be the most vital part of the celebration. We all know that Lord Krishna was very fond of sweets and would go hunting for milk & milk products in all the houses of Gokul.
