Here are some basic skin care tips that we forget to incorporate in our daily routine...
- Stress less
- Get up and get moving
- How about something healthy at mealtimes?
- You need your beauty sleep
Stress and anxiety cause premature aging like nothing else. So, try not to be a worrywart and stress too much over every small thing. Start meditating exercises that will help you stay calm.
Get up and get moving
The 21st century with all its advanced technology has given a new meaning to the words ‘sedentary lifestyle’. For most of us, work consists of planting ourselves in front of a computer for 6-7 hours straight. If you fall for this you health will suffer. So ladies, it’s time to get up and start moving. Make it a point to get up often and take a round around the office or your home. Working out at least 3-5 days a week helps improve your blood circulation and relieves stress too.
How about something healthy at mealtimes?
No, don’t skip this point. We aren’t asking you to give up junk food and all the unhealthy snacks you gorge on every day. All we ask is for you to include some healthy food items with your meals. A bowl of fruit or smoothie with your breakfast, for example, or a handful of dry fruits when you get hungry between meals will help maintain the nutrients in your skin.
You need your beauty sleep
You need at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. You may have heard this often enough, but a good night’s sleep is the most essential part of skin care. Skin repairs itself when you are sleeping, and most other body functions are shut down. Being sleep-deprived has the opposite effect—it causes stress to the body, which leads to skin concerns.
When it comes to skincare, you just can’t forget water. Staying hydrated is the first step to healthy skin. Water flushes out toxins from the body, which helps keep the skin moisturised and refreshed.
