Who here knows the true story of Valentine’s Day?

It began in the IIIrd century, when a Roman Emperor, Claudius II, outlawed marriage for young people, believing that single men made better soldiers. Valentinus, a Christian priest, continued marrying young people in secret, contrary to the royal edict. As a result, he was found, arrested, and sentenced to death. During his final days of imprisonment, being a man of learning, he took a student, the daughter of one of his jailers, Julia, who was blind. He showed her the world through his eyes, shared his wisdom, and comforted her with his quiet strength. The day of his death (February 14, 270 AD), has now become synonymous with the expression of love, devotion and affection, around the world, in remembrance of Valentinus. Lovers around the world exchange messages, stories, gestures gifts, moments and experiences, on this very special day. But why should it only be so? Let us remember the true essence of the man in whose memory Valentine’s Day is now celebrated – it is his unwavering hold on his beliefs, on his faith, and on what he found preciouswithin himself i.e. being steadfastly devout to his ideals of Christianity and the Christian marriage, so much so that he remained undeviating even in the face of death. While such times are passed, it is important, even more so in the modern world, to remember to first love yourself, and find strength within yourself, before sharing it with others. After all, only a flower full of health can share its nectar! Enrich believes in this ideal.

Foot care during monsoon

Foot care during monsoon

Monsoon surely brings the relief from summer but what it also brings is wet, smelly and dirty feet, fear of fungal and bacterial infection and many concerns related to the feet. Foot care is of primary concern in the monsoon and hence we present some tips that will help you enjoy the monsoon. First and foremost, keep your feet clean and dry. As soon as you are back home, make sure you wash your feet with luke-warm water. It will be ideal to dip your feet in warm water and allow yourself to relax. Dry the feet completely especially in between your toes. We would say it is wise to dust your feet with a dry talcum powder. Moisturize your feet and make it your ritual every night before going to bed. Scrub and wash your feet especially if you have stepped out in rain water to wash off all the dirt. Before going to bed, apply a good moisturizer that will help retain the natural oils and keep your feet supple. Closed shoes must be avoided as much as possible. They trap the moisture in the shoes which makes feet smell, skin itchy and prone to infection. Picking up on some shoes with open toes will help keep the shoes and your feet dry. Long nails must be avoided too as they have more chances of being infested by bacteria. Be choosy about your pedicures. Pedicures may sound like a tempting idea to get clean feet in the monsoon. But select your salon with care and ensure all the products and equipments are sterilized and are infection free. We insist that during your next visit to the nearest Enrich Salon, please ask our expert teams about the hygiene standards that we maintain, we are sure you will be happy with what you get to see. Walking bare feet is absolutely a bad idea especially on wet floors. Wet floors have a tendency to bear infection and can cause allergies that may take a while to heal, especially in monsoon. Keep your feet not just clean but also protected with suitable footwear. Our feet carry us all day long and hence it is very important that we take great care of them and keep them healthy. For any of your concerns regarding foot care, please don’t hesitate to seek guidance from our team, we will be glad to assist...

Made for monsoon

The cold splash of rain drops on your window sill and the gentle breeze in your hair feels heavenly in the monsoon, doesn’t it? The weather is cool, quiet and pleasant and there is love in the air! But wait, did you just say party? Who goes to a party in the crazy rain, get drenched with a smudgy make up? Well, if it is the monsoon that is stopping you from partying, then don’t let it. Enrich Salon brings good news – very simple make up tips at your finger tips that will help you keep your make up just where you want it to be. Light base for your make up: The base of your make up should be light. This will help you wear a fresh look throughout the day. Also by any chance if water splashes on your face chances of it getting smudged are less likely. Give your foundation a skip since it may make your face appear patchy with water or sweat. Go for a light BB cream or face powder. They are a safe bet Water proof products:  Your base has to be right. If the base is smudgy then the entire make up is sure to wash off. So the number one rule is to buy a good quality water proof foundation. Similarly opting a water proof eye liner and mascara are strongly recommended. Blush: To give your face a creamy dewy look pick up a cream based blush instead of your normal powder blush. If you wish to enhance the colour then add a layer of powder blush over it. The cream blush tends to stay longer on the face and even looks fresher. Go for colours that look natural. Pastel colours look subtle and apt in monsoon. Eye shadows: The same applies for eye shadows. Subtle colours like beige, pink and brown are the shades of monsoon. A powdered product is better than the cream based ones since the former doesn’t look washed out easily. Mascara: Unless wearing mascara is absolutely necessary, skip it. And if you must then either go for a water resistant product so that it doesn’t get smudged or you may also pick up clear mascara. Eyeliners: Use liners that are water proof. Or choose pencil liners over liquid ones. Opting for gel based products is safest for monsoon. Eyebrows: If you need to fill your eyebrows then choose a brow pencil since it will sit better on the face as compared to a brow powder. Lipsticks: Any shade is good when it comes to lipstick. There hardly is a problem with that. However make...

Sizzling hairstyles for monsoon

Sizzling hairstyles for monsoon Nothing spoils your mood like a bad hair day! And this gets even worse in a weather that makes your hair feel damp, oily and greasy. This becomes more frequent during monsoon and you are left wondering if there ever is an option to style your hair and not let them feel oily. Well, the good news is here. Enrich Salon helps you with few quick and easy to do hair styles that will not only leave your hair feeling great but also lift up your spirits instantly. 1. Ponytails: This monsoon you must go for the ponytail styles. They are the most popular trendy hair styles today. The advantage of ponytails is that you get to choose from various styles and still never get enough of them. Some of the ponytails help keep your face clear of hair. • Instead of a high ponytail, this time tie it at the nape of your neck. Pick a small section of hair and twist it around. Secure the loose end at the bottom of the ponytail with a bobby pin. You are good to go! • Get hold of a hair curler, add a few curls to your ponytail and make it a bit bouncy. • Next, you can also try the same ponytails at the side of your neck. • For a light cocktail evening, pull out some strands of your hair on the face and bring in a more feminine delicate effect. 2. Braids: Braids have seen a total make over recently. With so many styles being brought in everyday, there is always a new braid that is left out. Braids keep your hair manageable, tied up in one place and make you look tidy. They also prevent the hair from getting frizzy. Take a binge and braid it up! • For an instant dramatic effect, drop the regular braid this time and instead braid your hair inside out. • Pull the hair to one side of your head and go for a side braid. • Choose to accessorize the braid with delicate items like artificial flowers or beads to add glamour. 3. Wavy curls: If you have frizzy hair, maintaining straight hair will always be a concern. Please remember, more the products you try to straighten your hair, more the damage you are causing to your hair. Hence an easy tip is to opt for long wavy curls. This way you will be able to make the frizzy hair look stylishly messy. 4. Buns: Buns are a fun way to do your hair. Wrap your hair in a messy bun or a donut...

Rise and shine this monsoon

We all have a very interesting love-hate relationship with Monsoon. When the summers are gruelling, all that we crave for are monsoon showers. On one hand monsoon brings along the desire to stay indoors, snuggled in a blanket with hot brewing tea, while on the other hand it also brings dirty flooded roads, wet and itchy feet, gloomy clouds and low moods. However in your own small ways there is always a chance to brighten up your spirits this monsoon. 1. Choose right footwear: First things first – Make sure the rain water isn’t making your feet wet, dirty and prone to infection. Make sure you keep your feet clean and dry. Additionally, buy a pair of good quality shoes that bring comfort and style together. You can choose bright colours that will add a dash of shine in the climate. It is so easy today to get a stylish pair of foot wear for the monsoon and in so much variety. Jelly sandals, available in plastic, pvc, rubber and silicone, are very popular. 2. Colour your own clouds: When the clouds go dark for everyone, it is time to pull out your own clouds. Pick up umbrellas with interesting patterns and colours. Match them to your outfit or add contrast to your attire. If you have an artistic streak, pick up a plain umbrella and add your own colours and drawings to it. Make a personalized umbrella this monsoon! 3. Raincoats for convenience: For those who wish to travel light, pick up a raincoat. It adds style to your daily wear; make the rain coats work as a fashion advantage. Go ahead and experiment with different styles, patterns and colours. Go bold, go stylish! You only need a perfectly fitting rain coat and you are good to go and enjoy the monsoon. 4. Be smudge free: It is essential to be careful about the makeup you are wearing. Needless to say the products you use must be water proof. Getting your face smudged as soon as you step out is the worst day spoiler and to avoid this, all you need is to pick up water proof sun screen, foundation, eye liners and mascaras. Be ready to take the splash on the face! 5. Be colourful: When the atmosphere around you is gloomy and dark with clouds, bring a rainbow to the surroundings. Pick up clothes that are bright, dark and in attractive colours. Use accessories that complement the bright colours. 6. Choose the right wardrobe: It actually is a good idea to have a monsoon ready wardrobe. One of the challenges of monsoon is to dry your...
