A woman seems to be in a constant worry when it comes to her skin. Be it wrinkles, blemishes, pimples or aging, skin problems are perhaps the worst nightmare for any girl.
With age, as our body changes, the youthful skin also undergoes dramatic changes. Known to maintain a perfect balance between family and work, women often put themselves in the back seat.
Therefore, it’s important to remind them of the few beauty hacks with which they can maintain their youthful and beautiful skin, regardless of the age.
Hydrate with H2O
Have at least 2-3 litres (12-15 glasses) of water every day. Make this your one small habit that no matter what, you would keep sipping some water after every 1-2 hours.
You can also have it infused with lemon or herbs. Keep a small checklist of water glasses at your office desk/ or kitchen, or carry a small water bottle in case of travel.
This way, you detoxify your overall system and flushes out the toxins giving you pimple – free skin.
Enrich with Beauty Vitamin E
Enrich with Beauty Vitamin E – Incorporate your daily diet with rich sources of Vitamin -E, which is found in foods like avocados, spinach, almonds and sweet potatoes. These can also help lighten your skin, rejuvenate dry skin, and repair the skin tissues, while giving you a radiant and fresh look.
Maintain your sleep cycles
A disturbed sleep pattern is one of the basic reasons for those dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. Therefore, one must get a good sound sleep for 6-8 hours on a regular basis.
A great home remedy to remove tiredness and puffiness is using refrigerated tea bags under your eyes for 5-7 minutes; this will reduce the swelling and promote healthy skin growth around the eyes.
Supplement your diet with antioxidants
Foods like strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, tomatoes, and broccoli can fight against inflammation and reduce the signs of premature ageing.
With age, the elasticity of skin reduces and begins to thin out. These rich antioxidant foods can help in preserving and maintaining the skin’s youthful appearance.
Munch on hearty nuts
Start your day with crunchy hearty nuts like almonds and walnuts, which can impart a healthy and a glowing skin. Power – packed with Omega -3 fatty acids, they are a great source to protect your skin against free radicals, keeping your skin hydrated, soft, and pimple -free.
Over to you
The market is flooded with cosmetics that can help us with quick, temporary, one stop solutions for great looking skin, but there is nothing that beats that long lasting glow, which only comes from within.
If you take care of your skin and hair naturally, then anything you apply on your face will look 10 times better. In fact, you may not even need those superficial makeup fixes, if you have great looking skin.
A simple mantra you must always remember? Eat fresh, drink lots of water, avoid junk, and say hello to gorgeous skin every morning!
