Tips and tricks to save your skin's health!

Ever looked in the mirror and thought wish I could do better? While going through magazines, looking at the perfect skin of the models and wished your face was like them? Well, to be frank, we all have wanted that flawless, smooth, supple and radiant skin that makes us keep looking forward to the mirrors everywhere. Sounds more like a dream when you have to combat pollution, stress, hormonal changes and products that only degrade you skin. Dark spots, white heads, black heads and what not.

Another reason- pimples or acnes are one of the major causes that make your skin’s condition go horrible. That small pinkish dot to a white faced giant and then the bursting- we all hate them so badly. Though we feel that there is nothing we can do to avoid them, well, there are a few tricks and tips that can help them not go too bad and leave a permanent mark on your face.

1. CTM

1. CTM

This is the guru-mantra when it comes to sporting a clean look. Even if you do not go out the whole day, before going to bed every night, make sure you cleanse, tone and moisturize. This routine enables your skin to get rid of any impurities that it had faced anytime during the day while maintaining the texture. Important point is to choose products that are well-suited for your skin type. Oily, combination, dry- find what suits you and what you are not allergic to. If you can, please go natural.

2. Diet

2. Diet

Watch your diet. Everyday. Healthy lifestyle does not have a deadline. It is a habit or more of a life that we adopt in order to beam and lead a good life. Avoid fried, junk, fast and processed foods. Try eating at home as much as you can and carry home cooked meals with you to your workplaces. Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. Avoid too many cups of tea or coffee; instead take lemon water or fresh fruits that help you keep fresher. Take your meals on time and do not indulge in stuffing yourself. Small plate, good atmosphere and no distractions while eating help impart more nutrients from the food.

3. Skin treatment

If your skin is having an awful time coping up or healing itself, visit spas or centers that help treat your skin with natural products that suit you. Stay away from OTC products that offer fairness or concealing or covering up as these mostly contain chemicals and can further deteriorate your condition.

4. Parlors/ Salons

Do not enter into a trial and error situation. Go only for the places that offer the best products treatments. Substandard products or machines will only result in the worsening of your skin and over time, it will become terrible and there can be no going back. The nice ones may charge you a little bit extra but this is an investment in yourself that will lead to a better skin. Let us admit it, the face values is always more than anything else, so let us just keep the simple thought in mind- take care.

5. Go natural

Nothing beats the grandmother’s philosophy of keeping our skin clean and glowing. Besan (Bengal gram flour), honey, lemon, baking soda, milk, cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, aloe vera, neem, the list is so never ending. Make masks, scrub, and clean with all that is available in your kitchen. No side effects, no harmful chemicals. Just simple, natural remedies that take no time in covering up the blemishes and even help you boast a glowing skin.

6. Make up

6. Make up

Before you pick up that foundation or take a brush in your hand, make a vow about cleaning your face before going to sleep. Remove any traces of make up on eyes, cheeks, lips and even neck. Use baby oil or milk to remove the last hint. Apart from being good cleansers, these work efficiently as moisturizers too. Also, go for the most reliable companies and their products. Use herbal based formulations that do no harm to your skin and make it look dull.

7. Make routine

7. Make routine

Make rituals. Be it CTM or Scrubbing and moisturizing or using aroma oils- make sure you do them. Things won’t work on just a few applications. If the impurities or problems are deep, they need a continuous action on them to be able to get rid of. Set your goals. Be it about drinking water or eating non oily food. Met them and feel good about yourself. The results on your skin will be visible without any doubt.

So ain't it easy?

Though very simple and no tricky steps, if you pick up a few and follow closely and with devotion, you can achieve the skin you have always wanted. Do not go for the glossy faces in the pages of magazines because that is sheer make up and technology of perfecting everything. You need to understand that first and foremost step is accepting and then working upon yourself. It may take some time but what you get to keep is a forever charm.
