There are a variety of factors that can make your skin appear dull and lifeless. It could be stress, unhealthy eating habits or even the fact that you're missing out on a daily skin care routine that your skin can rely on. To make up for the same, you need to invest some time and energy trying your hand at some simple and effective facial treatments for your skin. Here’s a quick guide…

Get adequate sleep

You may not realise this but a lack of sleep causes dark circles and makes your skin look tired. When you don't get enough sleep, the body releases the stress hormone, cortisol which can affect the collagen production in your skin and leave it looking lacklustre and saggy. So if you truly want beautiful skin, get good sleep.

Embrace a skin care regime

A lot of how your skin behaves depends on what you treat it with. This is why a skin care regime made of the right products is of absolute importance. We suggest you go for the Lakmé Skin Gloss Range that contains the Lakmé Skin Gloss Gel Crème, Lakmé Skin Gloss Reflection Serum and the Lakmé Skin Gloss Overnight Mask. This range comes with optimum hydrating powers, thanks to its super ingredient—mineral laden glacial water—that moisturises your skin and gives it a glossy sheen.

Try an ice massage

If you wish to do a facial treatment at home, go for an ice massage. Not only does it cool and soothe the face but this massage also minimizes pores and sucks out the excess oil from your skin. Just rub your forehead, the apples of your cheeks, your chin area and your neck with an ice cube. The cold will constrict the blood vessels and tighten your face. When done consistently over a period of time, you’ll find your skin glowing naturally.
