One of the world’s oldest medical disciplines, the Indian practice of Ayurveda asserts we are composed of three doshas, or elements: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. If they are askew rather than evenly represented (and they are for most people, apparently), we won’t function at optimum capacity. Ayurvedic practice seeks to identify any imbalances in an individual’s doshas, and to administer treatments and modify the diet to establish full equilibrium.
At its best, sharing food is an intimate act between people. It is pleasure and sociability, providing a moment to truly engage, talk, share a laugh and strengthen relationships. A beautiful celebration of life itself. For all food-loving theatre-goers, Margot is perfectly located in the heart of the theatre district in Covent Garden for early pre- and late post-theatre meals. From nibbles to feasts, our versatile menu fits the bill.
Thank you to Masterchef UK and the entire team for a great memory created at Margot London. We are extremely proud of our Chefs Maurizio Morelli, Massimo Vezzi and the entire Margot team. It was a pleasure meeting Debbie McGee, Dev Griffin, , Sarah Howard and all of the film crew. Here is our photo of the day!
5 effective face masks recipes you can whip up at home
Sheet masks are such a huge trend now that we have forgotten the wonderful ingredients at home that can be whipped into a mask. An at-home face mask is not just effective, but also pure because you know exactly what you’re putting on your face. In fact, some of the recipes are so clean that you can literally eat what you apply. Now what can be better than that?
We got Rajiv Yadav, spa director at Quan Spa at JW Marriott Delhi, and Asenla Jamir, senior aromatherapist and assistant spa manager, Ananda in the Himalayas, to reveal their favourite kitchen-to-skin recipes. From soothing, to exfoliating, anti-ageing to decongesting, these masks cover the entire gamut of skin concerns.
The sunburn soother
Mix equal parts aloe gel, grated cucumber and yogurt. Apply all over face to cool down sunburn or even when you feel red and irritated from the heat. All three ingredients are excellent to sooth skin.
