How will you be spending Mother’s Day this year?
Meghna: My family together with my parents and my in laws so that everyone has there mum there and our kids have both grandmothers there too! We will be having a meal at home and spending the afternoon together.
Do you have any beauty tips passed on by your mother or grandmother that you can share with us?
Meghna: I have always been told that rubbing warm olive oil into the hair ends and scalp then keeping it in overnight and washing it out the next day helps to moisturise and condition the hair as a regular monthly treatment. My mother used to do it for me when I was little and I try to do it now especially in winter when the heating dries everything out. I was also told that chickpea flour in milk makes a good exfoliating face mask although I admit I have never tried this!
