With time and age, skin tends to lose its texture and radiance; which is exactly why we need to adopt certain necessary practices to make sure that doesn’t happen. Here are some common tips recommended by beauticians and followed by dozens of individuals who boast of having the perfect skin!
Don’t be surprised. Your skin needs regular exercises too in order to maintain its elasticity and suppleness. And although you don’t need to opt for heavy duty workouts to achieve the same, you can choose simple, easy to perform stretching exercises that can do wonders for your skin.
Regular exercise would almost always be followed by a proper diet. In addition to taking care of the skin externally, you need to nourish it from inside. And that can be done only by opting for a healthy diet which would essentially contain certain foods beneficial for the skin, including green tea, fruits, vegetables, wheat grass etc.
Be sure to stay off sugary and fried foods, dairy products, red meat, caffeinated products, alcohol and smoking though for these may have adverse effects on your skin.
A proper diet would also incorporate plenty of water. And that is exactly what you should be doing in order to keep your skin hydrated. Drink plenty of water every day (at least 8 cups of water).
Alternatively, you can also opt for fruits that contain high water content. This would hydrate your skin from inside while you take care of it with creams and lotions outside.
Make it a practice to wash your face every day (excluding the time when you shower). This helps to keep your skin clean, fresh and healthy. Never sleep in your makeup and always make it a point to remove the same once you reach home from work, shopping or a party.
No matter how hard you try to cover yourself with scarves, big hats, long sleeves or sun glasses, you would not be able to ward of the harmful UV rays of the sun which happen to be the skin’s worst enemy.
Preventing these rays from reaching your skin would require you to regularly use sun blocks, sunscreens, creams and lotions that contain a good SPF factor (at least above 30). It also pays to reapply the product when the effects start to wear off. This would give continued protection from the sun, thus making the skin look healthy and radiant even after a long day out in the sun.
No matter how branded your beauty products may be or how high they may be in quality. When it comes to applying makeup, more than 90% of individuals with perfect skin revealed wearing little or no makeup at all.
Makeup, even when applied lightly would start clogging the pores in the skin with time. Heavy makeup would hardly leave any room for these pores to breathe. And when this happens, the skin tends to become rough and uneven.
Toners are very helpful in evening out the pH balance of the skin and so, need to be definitely incorporated into your list of ‘must do’ beauty practices. In addition to nourishing the skin from the outside, toners help to provide ample nourishment for the skin beneath the surface. This in turn would be helpful in retaining the health, texture and youthfulness of the skin.
