The holiday season in Dhaka brings with it, a number of wedding festivities, day to night picnics and gatherings with friends and family, elaborately planned vacations and without a doubt Christmas and New Year's Eve. While juggling between all these occasions and events, we tend to forget to take proper care of our skin, when it needs the most amount of attention and nourishment.

holiday glow. These products range from exfoliators to scrubs, natural oils, brightening masks, handmade soaps, cleansers, herbal packs and so on and so forth, using fresh ingredients that you can swear by.
