We all want a shiny, soft and smooth skin. It is another thing that we almost never get what we want. Our lifestyles are the biggest enemies of our skin. Right from the exposure to the Sun to the food we eat, all have adverse effects on our skin. So, we have come up with a comprehensive list of steps to be followed to get shiny, flawless skin.
We can take steps to reduce the exposure of the skin to the Sun. Additionally, putting on a good-quality sunscreen lotion will reduce the effects of the effects of the sun rays on our skin. Also, put on sunglasses while you are in the Sun to protect your eyes as well.
Get Good Sleep:
Proper rest is very important for the skin. There is a reason why we call it ‘beauty sleep’. Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you look pale and washed out if you only get a few hours of sleep. A lot of medical issues that we face are due to improper sleeping habits. So it is better that you maintain proper sleeping habits.
Develop a Routine:
Having a routine for the skin is very important to keep it rejuvenated. Cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin regularly and if possible, do it daily. Scrub your face with a gentle face-scrub at least three times a week to keep your pores open. Apply a face-pack or a face-mask, at least once a week. Gentle massaging every day keeps the blood pumping and makes the skin healthier.
Make a Few Changes in Your Diet:
This will go a long way. Include seasonal fruits and berries in your diet. They are rich in anti-oxidants. These fight off the free radicals that enter your body and are harmful to the skin. Drinking fruit juice daily is the best way to include fruits in your diet. Cut down on the oily junk food for best results.
Aloe vera is simply a magical plant on the surface of the earth. We say this because of the impact that it can have on your skin. A simple face pack that you can make all by yourself on a regular basis with curd, oil or honey will change the face glowing and bright. It can also remove the acne and pimples from your skin.
Smoking speeds up the natural ageing process by changing the circulation of blood to your skin. This can contribute to wrinkles. Quitting smoking or even decreasing how much you smoke a day may slow down the ageing process.
These are a few simple and easy steps you can follow to keep your skin glowing. You can also do facial exercises to keep the facial muscles tight and keep the blood pumping through the veins which will ultimately keep your skin smooth, supple and shiny.
