Wash, tone, moisturise, repeat – we’ve all gone through the daily grime of taking care of our skin. Every skin expert (and your best friend) will tell you that just like your face, your body needs extra care. But if you’re confused about just what works best for you, then look no further for we have it simplified for you. We all need a refresher every now and then and this one is just that. Read on to know your everyday guide to baby-soft and supple skin.
Cleansing is key
Cleansing right is the start to great looking skin every day. Employ a mild body wash every time you shower. Cleansing not only rids the skin of impurities and the daily dirt and grime, but also helps other products (like moisturisers and sunscreens) work better.
Hydrate it right
Your skin needs hydration, both on the inside and outside. The easiest way to do this is to drink plenty of water during the day. Add a slice of lemon to your water jar as the Vitamin C in lime helps maintain your skin’s elasticity and collagen. If your skin is dry, we recommend the Vaseline Aloe Fresh enriched with aloe vera to keep your skin feeling fresh and supple.
Protect with SPF
A lot has been said about sunscreen, and with much reason. Your skin needs SPF, every day – be it summer or winter, to protect it from the harmful and irreversible effects of the sun. We’re swearing by the all-new Vaseline Healthy White SPF 24 Triple Lightening which not only protects you from the harsh rays of the sun but also helps make your skin look even toned and fair. With continuous use it reduces the pigmentation on your skin.
Get that beauty sleep
While you do nothing when you sleep, your body is working doubly hard. Sleep is the time your skin cells receive much needed oxygen and blood, helping you wake up to fresher and more radiant looking skin.
You are what you eat
This adage couldn't hold truer for your skin. As good as it tastes, sugar is actually bad for your skin. It breaks down collagen, a component responsible for the elasticity of your skin. Opt for extra virgin olive oil instead of regular cooking oil/butter. Lastly, include antioxidants such as oranges, walnuts, gooseberries and avocado in your diet and you’ll be saying hello to healthier looking skin in days.
