But, simple and fuss-free recipes had always been there. Rewind back a few years, say around twenty to thirty. For some it may even be less. Although, we can never claim that life was less complicated then but yes, our older generation were more into homegrown stuff. Food, beauty, clothing and the list goes on. Those memories are like vintage photographs. A whole lot of these traditions in India are almost like an everyday activity. From Indian mothers feeding turmeric and jaggery to her kids for immunity boosting, or a turmeric sandalwood blend for a face mask or a grandmother knitting a pretty sweater to keep her children safe during winters. Afternoons were the time, when the ladies of the household would sit together and create simple yet unique recipes at home over a soulful chat and endless cups of tea.
So, DIY recipes are not a thing of the present but yes, they have made a comeback. And, now is the moment when we can experiment the most. Here’s an easy to do recipe to give your nails the much needed shine. Also, with all the frequent kitchen chores and hand washing going on, your nails do deserve a lot of care.
