AlmondsOne can easily mistake her to be in her late 50s at the most. But I know that she is touching 70. Awesome really. With her long black hair woven into a shining knot, she looks healthy, charming and youthful even with the streak of grey that graces her temples. Her skin has a natural glow that could not have come out of a bottle promising eternal youth. Much of her beauty emanates of course from within, but there is a skin and beauty regimen that Vyjayanti has assiduously followed over the years.

Waking up at 5.30 in the morning, she sticks to a strict pattern of two glasses of water, followed by coffee, the trigger she needs to spring to life, after which she heads to the bathroom for her morning ablutions. Fifteen minutes later, Vyjayanti takes off for a 20 minute brisk walk into the nearby park from where she returns to do her Buddhist prayers, a time of deep focus and reflection for her.

Apart from the kajaal stick which she can never do without, the only cosmetic indulgence Vyjayanti allows herself is a moisturizing anti-sun lotion.

For everything else, she seeks her remedies in the kitchen.

The ubiquitous lemon, potato and tomato combined with commonly used ingredients in the kitchen are her all time favourites and a pet remedy for skin blemishes like pimples, dark circles and tired looking skin. Vyjayanti’s recommendations include:

  • A chemical-free cleansing cream made from four tablespoons of crushed fennel seeds and a cup of buttermilk to be boiled together for 30 minutes. This solution can keep for two weeks if bottled and kept in the fridge after every use.
  • A fine past of ground almonds and rose water for an instant glow pack.
  • Sandalwood paste mixed with rose water for excellent results on tired looking skin.
  • Potatoes soaked in ice water and applied regularly over dark pigmented skin and even warts.
  • Almond pack made from a paste of ground almonds soaked overnight, a teaspoon of gram flour, one teaspoon of milk and four drops of lime juice.
  • Tonic made from a mixture of grated cucumber and coconut water.
  • Daily application of turmeric powder mixed with sandalwood paste.
  • Papaya mixed with two drops of lime juice for supple, glowing skin.
  • Post shampoo rinse with hair tonic made from basil (tulsi) leaves and fenugreek seeds soaked in water.
  • Yoghurt mixed with two drops of lemon for skin conditioning
  • An oatmeal pack rubbed gently once a week has a wonderful exfoliating effect.
  • Cool tomato paste for closing pores and oil skins.

However, for any of these recommendations to work effectively, the most important requirement Vyjayanti believes one must have, is the belief that one deserves to look and feel good always!
