Verve puts together tips for looking great, picks of the season and luxury spots to relax in...

VENUE
The moonsoons call for indulgent pampering and while you’re at it, do it the French way at Jean-Claude Biguine’s newest outlet at Linking Road, Bandra. With state-of-the-art global concepts, contemporary and convenient services, the premium salon is known for its international standards. From glamourous highlights and rejuvenating spa facials to classy manicures and pedicures, it’s joie de vivre all the way.

WHIFF
Treat yourself to a celebration of all that is bold and beautiful with GUESS Girl creating an unforgettable impression. A burst of vibrant fruits and rare flowers, the fragrance has top notes of raspberry nectar combined with accords of Brazilian paradise orchids. This youthfully fresh perfume is strong at first, but tapers off to a heartwarming finish.

PICK
The wait is finally over as Bobbi Brown, the make-up guru with the eponymous brand unleashes her refreshing beauty philosophy in India. Apart from the flattering foundation and Shimmer Bricks, look out for the Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso - an instantly cheering bright pink with a non-drying formula that stays put.

FLASHBACK
On the borders of Burma and Thailand, women of the Kayan tribe practise a century old ritual of adorning their necks with brass rings. As they grow older, more rings are added, and eventually, their necks start to look elongated. It is believed that the shiny brass rings on an extra long neck is the ultimate sign of female elegance and great beauty.

TIP
Watermelon body scrub is great as a skin exfoliator. Being loaded with antioxidants, it prevents free radical damage and fights the signs of aging. Create a mix of watermelon pulp, granulated sugar and two tablespoons of lemon juice. Scrub on during your shower, and enjoy the beauty benefits it has to offer all season.
