Festive season is here and we are all gearing up to enjoy the parties, weddings and celebrations. While we are busy putting make up, staying up late at night, gorging on the the yummy food and drinking away to glory, our health tends to take a backseat and skin becomes a mess. In this article, we will be discussing some handy tips to take care of the skin from getting damaged and at the same time how we can look our best without putting on loads of make-up every day.
Skin is a direct reflection of our inner health: Try to have a balanced healthy diet and catch up on your sleep in between the parties to keep your skin looking fresh and glowing.
Hydration: 64% of our skin is comprised of water and that is just good enough reason to drink atleast 2.5-3.5 litres of water to keep your skin hydrated. A well moisturised and hydrated skin is the perfect base to apply any make up.
Use skin care products suitable for your skin type. Don’t try any new products up to three weeks before any major social event – this includes anything new for the skin, hair, make up or even detergent!
Exfoliate once a week- Exfoliate atleast once a week so as to remove the dead layer from the skin which contains all the dirt and impurities. However, be very careful so as to not over-exfoliate.
Use hydration masks which are dermatologically tested to give your skin that extra boost.
Our skin repairs itself only at night. If we do not remove our make up before sleeping, this repair process is hampered and, thus, deteriorates the overall quality of our skin.
Sunscreen 365 days a year. UV rays not only cause tanning but are responsible for 70% of our ageing changes and pigmentation. Do not neglect your neck and hands when applying sunscreen.
Start using Vitamin C serum daily. It has amazing antioxidant properties that can help you get the glow on even without any make up.
Stress can be a major aggravating factor for all sorts of skin problems. Therefore, just be happy, be healthy and enjoy yourself!
There are is a huge array of treatments available these days to help you look the best version of yourself and give you that extra dose of self-confidence. Waxing and parlour facials are outdated as everyone is opting for Laser hair reduction and Medifacials which are safer and results are much longer lasting. There are minimally invasive procedures which can help you get the perfect jawline or the perfect lips and take care of anything and everything that bothers you when you look at the mirror. So meet an experienced Dermatologist, discuss all your concerns and start early!
