How to Care for Your Skin Everyday

You ARE that enviable person gifted with a clean and clear skin for which everyone adores you. For those compliments to keep coming in frequently, you feel it is necessary to rely upon skincare applications in little doses every day.

The popular and easy practice is to pick store-bought beauty products. Maybe you are unaware that the commercially produced ‘beauty products’ could be packed with artificial preservatives, colors and fragrances that might harm your skin with passage of time.

It is best for you to get started with skin care right from your home, relying upon the easily doable and the just about inexpensive, instead of spending a fortune on popular brands.

Basic products make a huge difference

Beauty care cost need not be heavy on your wallet, contrary to common perception. Say ‘yes’ to a simple skincare routine at home every day; you can pick up from your refrigerator or pantry natural products readily available. Coupled with a little extra care, you can watch your skin transform from dull to a radiant glow.

Go Natural

Stay close to nature and pick unprocessed ingredients for natural skincare. When you ensure that they are on your regular shopping list, natural products never fail you: their use keeps your skin glowing and the results are everlasting.

Not only do they beautify your skin but also they help absorb antioxidants and boost the UV resistance of your skin. Get ready to bask in the adulation that would soon come your way.

Honey, one of the treasures of nature can serve as an excellent facial cleanser that is not harsh on your skin. Aloe Vera is a natural wonder gel that can slow the aging of skin, lighten blemishes, treat sunburn and soothe irritation. You can use it as your daily skin moisturizer. Hurrah! No side effects! What more could you ask for?

Exfoliate with a body scrub

You can use a sea salt honey scrub or sugar scrub to unclog pores and to boost cell renewal. It removes dead cells, leaving your skin dewy soft.

Shield your skin from the sun

Spending a day at the beach? Or travelling outdoors when the sun’s rays are most intense? Use a sun block to cover up. Wear hats and clothing made of dark, tightly woven materials (like canvas rather than straw) that absorb ultraviolet light better than cotton fabrics in lighter colors.

Taking a dip in the pool? Make sure to apply a thick layer of waterproof sunscreen that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15. You may have to dab it on 20-30 minutes before exposure for your skin to absorb it.

Get your beauty sleep

Have you noticed puffiness around your eyes or under eye circles? Well, blame it on that girls’ night out. You must get enough shut-eye – 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep for your skin to repair and recover by itself. While you snooze, your skin makes new collagen, which plumps up your skin and makes it wrinkle free.

Drink enough water

Drink enough water to keep your skin soft and supple. Water hydrates your skin naturally and enhances its elasticity. The appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is slowed down and you will not look your age.

Eat fruits and veggies

Eat well to look good. Make fresh fruits and veggies a part of your daily diet to work on your skin, inside and out.

Water-dense watermelon helps keep your skin baby soft. Eat vitamin C-rich Kiwi to help produce collagen that makes your skin taut, keeping fine lines at bay. Consume peach to moisturize your skin. Apple ensures you do not age faster and lends a glow from within.

Spinach flushes out toxins, leaving your skin bright. Carrot fights wrinkles. Regular intake of carrot juice helps get rid of skin blemishes. Know what the humble tomato could do to your skin? It has anti-aging properties, tightens pores and prevents acne.

If the DIY measures do not work to fix serious or age-related skin problems, consult with a qualified expert aesthetic medical practitioner.
