Come winters and comes the early morning after bath ritual of my husband slapping a thin layer of Pond’s cold cream all over his face and hands. As he carries on with his daily practice of protecting his skin from harsh winters before stepping out of the house, the familiar fragrance of this moisturizing cold cream from Pond’s reminds me of the first beauty ritual I learned from my Grand ma.
My Grand ma never had a facial and never used any fancy skincare and anti ageing products we use today but her skin looked flawless! Good food, pleasant environment, you would say. But more specifically, it was her diligent use of Pond’s cold cream before going to bed. Every night she would put on a thick layer of Pond’s cold cream and swipe it off revealing the most luminous skin underneath.
