THE DO'SIt is very important to remove make up from your face, before sleeping. Whilst it is completely essential to cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin on a daily basis, it is all the more important to exfoliate it. Cleansing will help you to get rid of the dirt built up on your face and neck. Work up a lather on your face and neck using a good cleanser, and rinse it with water. Next comes Toning (apply a toner that suits your skin type in a cotton pad and rub it in your face and neck). This will aid in removing much more dirt, than cleansing will. You can also dab some olive oil in a cotton pad to clean your skin. Once your skin has absorbed the toner, hydrate your skin with a good Moisturizer. Apart from these three, it is also essential to exfoliate at least once a week! Exfoliation will help your skin to get rid of dead cells, and will clean clogged pores and hair follicles, making it appear brighter. You can try Bengal gram flour or orange peel powder to exfoliate.
Do stay away from the SunThe mighty Sun radiates UV rays which are super harmful for your skin, and is also one of the causes for the alarming rate of skin cancer prevalent among people! Therefore, it just becomes all the more necessary to protect your skin from being exposed to it.
- Invest in a good sunscreen with a high SPF (at least 15) that would block both UVA and UVB rays, and are ‘noncomedogenic’ and ‘nonacnegenic’. Apply it on all exposed parts of your skin, when you are indoors too!
- Wear a hat or cover up your face with scarf when it’s too sunny or humid outside.
- Wear sunglasses to prevent twitching your eyes in the sunny weather. Twitching a lot could eventually develop wrinkles around your eyes.
Do maintain a healthy dietYou are what you eat, and your eating habits reflect on your skin very easily. It is important to eat right, and stay healthy.
- Eat more and more green leafy vegetables and fresh fruits on a daily basis.
- Try and follow a low-sugar diet, and instead consume foods that are rich in Vitamin C. Some examples of eatables filled with Vitamin Care blackcurrants, cauliflowers, broccoli, guava, grapes, kiwi fruit, strawberries, kale, Indian Goose Berries, lemon, cherries, papaya, sweet potatoes, and pineapples. Alternatively, you can pop in vitamin C pills also.
- Maintain a balanced diet that contains sufficient amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and other minerals. sdf
