Teach yourself to love yourself first this Teachers’ Day

Who is a teacher? A teacher is any being who passes on good knowledge, positive realisation or any other virtue to another, along with giving him or her the ways of using it to one’s good in his or her life. Be it your dog who taught you to be patient and to find joy in small things, your child who taught you the values of responsibility, or your school teacher who taught you your alphabet, any one can, and should be a teacher. So can you, by sharing whatever good you have within yourself with others who can benefit by it. So Teachers’ Day, in its essence, is really Everyone’s Day. Or should be.   But this Teachers’ Day you have a special someone to teach. You. While we get busy teaching others what we think is right, we tend to neglect ourselves in the process. Teaching yourself new things is a huge part of finding yourself as a person. There are many things you can teach yourself, but this Teachers’ Day, we at Enrich Salons, whose philosophy is “Love begins with you”, have a special task for you. Which is, teach yourself to love yourself first.   Why is loving oneself first so important for a teacher?   If you do not love yourself, you will not have confidence in yourself. If you do not have confidence in yourself, no one will believe that what you teach them is right. Say for example you have great philosophies to share. Practical philosophies one can use in his or her life to take him or her through the rough patches they will invariable face. If you do not love yourself enough to practice them yourself in your own life to make it better first, people will react with doubt when you share your views with them. After all, practice what you preach makes sense. Give yourself love, take your own life to a better place with your ideals, and people will come to you.   If you do not love yourself, you will not be a good human being. If you are not a good human being, no one in their right minds will want to learn anything from you. Say for example you have great knowledge of the physics of the Universe. But say, for argument’s sake, you are not a good person at heart. Intelligent people will want no part of what you have to teach. You might argue what scientific knowledge has to do with your moral character? A lot, really. If you do not understand the basics of how being a good human being works,...

Tie a Rakhi around your own wrist first this year

Tie a Rakhi around your own wrist first this year

“Please wear your own oxygen mask before assisting others” Perhaps this instruction we hear every time we fly best sums up the message that Enrich Salons wants to send across this Raksha Bandhan. Our philosophy which we have total faith in, is Love begins with you. If you do not love yourself first, then how will you have any love to share with others? And what you love, you protect. If you believe there is something in our philosophy, tie the protective string of the Rakhi around your own wrist before tying it on others. If you cannot breathe properly because you ignored your own oxygen mask, you will not have the basic physical strength to help others wear theirs. It really is as simple as that.   But hey, wasn’t Raksha Bandhan a brother sister thing? You will be surprised to know that this thousands-of-years long tradition of tying a Rakhi was associated with the relationship between a brother and a sister somewhat recently. There are innumerable examples in history, mythology and legend where the Rakhi symbolised protection promised or wished upon by one individual to another. Be who they were. Here are just a few of those examples.   Lord Indra, Sachi, and the Rakhi Before Lord Indra ventured out to battle the asuras, his wife Sachi tied around his wrist a Rakhi which had been blessed by Lord Vishnu. While tying this around her husband’s wrist, she prayed for his protection and well being. The Gods were victorious. Thereafter the Rakhi became a symbol of protection tied around the wrist of any God or man going to war.   Lord Krishna, Draupadi and the Rakhi During the great war in Mahabharata, Draupadi tied a cloth torn from her outfit around Krishna’s bleeding wrist in order to stop the bleeding. This act of protection made Krishna immediately declare Draupadi his sister and promised to protect her in return from then on.   Kunti, Abhimanyu, and the Rakhi Just before the final and great war in Mahabharata commenced, Kunti tied a Rakhi around the wrist of her grandson Abhimanyu in order to protect him from all negative forces.   The Sikhs and Rakhi In the 18th century Sikh Khalsa armies looked upon Raksha Bandhan as a very important occasion which stood for a promise of protection afforded to farmers from Afghan invaders.   Rabindranath Tagore and the Rakhi At the time of the Bengal Partition, Rabindranath Tagore called upon Raksha Bandhan as an occasion to invoke respect, love and mutual protection between Hindus and Muslims.   So why not You, You, and the Rakhi? Since Raksha Bandhan has...

Basic skincare routines to keep your skin healthy

The basic skincare routine for any type of skin No amount of make up will cover up for skin that is not healthy. In fact, it will make it even worse and your skin even more unhealthy. Whereas healthy skin, with or without make up, shows. Not only in just your face but your confidence in yourself. So how does one go about having healthy skin, apart of course from eating a balanced diet and drinking enough fluids? Some very basic skincare day routines that we have listed down for you to refer to and follow easily. This is the basic skincare routine to follow, with differences in product types as per your skin type which we will come to later.   Remove your make up if it is the last thing you do The first step starts as the last thing you do before going to bed. Remove all your make up. Completely. Choose a make up remover wisely as many do not do the job completely. Carefully and gently wipe your face with cotton soaked in the remover till it has been removed completely. Use specialized make up removers to remove harder to erase make up like around your eyes and mouth.   Use a cleanser twice a day Choose a cleanser that suits you and wash your face once in the morning before applying any make up, and again last thing at night after removing your make up. If you do not use make up, cleanse your face twice a day any way. You can add another cleansing in between in case you get too grimy and sweaty in the course of the day. To use a cleanser right, splash your face with warm but not hot water. Massage the cleanser into your face with circular upward motions. Remove it by splashing with warm water again. Pat dry.   Use a toner after every cleansing session Take a toner that is preferably free of alchohol and wet a cotton ball with it. After you have patted dry your face once your cleansing routine is complete, wipe your face with this toner soaked cotton while avoiding the eyes. Keep it on without rinsing it off and let it dry naturally.   Moisturise your skin Once your toner has dried completely, massage in a suitable moisturiser in circular upward motions. If you feel your skin is getting massaged too much, you can also pat on the moisturiser gently. Consider getting specialized creams for use under and around your eyes.   Exfoliate your skin at least once a week Do this at least once, if not twice. But not...

Nail Art trends in 2018 – Expert Opinions

This collection of the latest nail art trends needs a hand. Yours. Whether you are in the beauty industry and need fresh ideas to wow your clients with, or whether you are simply a lady, who as the phrase goes… is known by her hands… it’s time to put the traditional nail polish to better use by refurbishing it with these latest international nail art trends. What’s great is, each is simple to do, and there is always room for improvisation.   Peek-a-Boo Nail Art This incredibly stylish nail art style is also incredibly simple to do. First of all, file and clean your nails while removing all cuticles. Then apply a base coat of nail polish to make your nail art more permanent and less prone to discolouration. Now play around with colours of your choice and apply them side by side along the length of your nails. Let it dry completely. Next apply nail strips over only the parts which you want to peep through. Apply two coats of a single colour nail polish of your choice over this. Let it dry again completely. Remove the nail strips carefully and you are done!   Chrome Nail Art This nail art is again very simple to do but needs one special ingredient – Chrome powder. The effect is that of little brilliant mirrors on your fingers. First of all, file and clean your nails while removing all cuticles. Next, apply a double coat of gel polish, ideally black, or any other of your choice. Cure your nails under UV light for about twenty seconds. Next, apply a top coat of clear gel polish and cure this again under UV light. Using an eye shadow brush, dab the chrome powder onto your nails generously. Do it with enough firmness so the chrome powder spreads and begins to look like foil. Brush off the excess chrome powder from around your nails. Now add another layer of clear top coat of gel polish. This time cure your nails under the UV light for half a minute. Now time to polish your silver jewellery to match those reflective nails!   Ensemble Nail Art This nail art is the most open to innovation and imagination. Here you go wild with different colours on different nails with different designs, sparkles or glitter on each. An useful tip that creates balance to the eye is that of keeping the same shade for the thumb and the ring finger. No more rules.   Naked Nail Art This nail art is extremely minimalistic and completely modern. First of all, file and clean your nails while removing all...
