More Goodness For You!



Dear Skin, 

First, let me thank you for being so radiant in my teenage, with no pimples or acnes. You also outlived my expectations for lasting beyond those wonder years of early 20s. Yes, I still get many compliments courtesy you. Barring the accident I had when I was 19, you never troubled me. Sorry for those scars but hope you remember how I took extra care and pampered you with coconut oil.

Though, I must admit, initially I was not very keen on using coconut oil but my mother convinced me to try it. Living up to the expectations, the oil worked marvelously and lightened the scars. You know I have a craze for body lotions and I thought oil would darken my skin color. Seriously, I knew so little about this wonder nut. Since then you guys have gelled together so beautifully that taking a cue from your bonding, I introduced coconut oil to 'Hair' as well. Looks like even Hair likes him.

However, I've observed that you seem to enjoy each other more in wintersWhenever I apply coconut oil on you, your relationship blossoms happily on my soft cheeks, patching away the dry skin and adding glow to my face. Yesterday I read this quote by Dustin Hoffman, 'The two basic terms necessary to sustain life are sunshine and coconut milk.' Can't agree more with him this winter. You must be wondering why I'm essaying your relationship. Well, things are about to change, for better, of course. Your good old companion is having a makeover. From now onwards, he'll be more stylish and cool. I know, I know, you're blushing. Check out his new profile picture on Facebook. 

With this stylish new avatar, I can carry him wherever I go and you guys can spend more time together. Even I'm looking forward to that. After all, you both help me in looking young. Ending the letter with a couplet I've written for you,

"Dressed in the utterly dose of coconut milk,
 You rekindle love, you look like silk."

Looking forward to receive more compliments on your behalf,
Saru 

P.S. Find enclosed video, love can surely happen dobara

    1. You should. In winters when we sit in front of heating devices, it's the best remedy for dry or itchy skin.

      Thanks for reading.

    1. People are slowly realizing the value of good old world and companies are making sure to include the best of that world. I know many women you use traditional beauty tips, guess they know how to be modern without shunning tradition.

      Thanks for reading Sir.

  17. All through my childhood I used coconut oil both as body lotion and hair oil and loved it. Move to Delhi changed it forever. My hair did not like coconut oil mixed with those dirty particles and particulates (those days air pollution was at extreme in Delhi). Hope someday I get back to it :) Nice reminder of its goodness.

    1. Yeah, you can't wear it and go out. Wash your hair after application and wipe the extra grease from you face when you are going out.

  25. Hi Saru,

    Coconut has been known since many years to be a good strengthening agent for the hairs. Parachute are doing a good job at using this concept to base their product on.

    What a lovely letter written here, extolling the new and improved outlook of Parachute. I'm sure they'll both like each other. :) :) :)

    Wish you luck for the contest :)

    Regards

    1. Hi Jay,

      I think coconut is an integral part of Indian culture, from hair to garnishing desserts with coconut flakes. Yeah, parachute is doing a good job. Thanks for liking the idea and for your wishes. :)
