today's world with competition and perfection being
the most essential thing, it is imperative to look good.
Make-up will help you to some extent but what is most
important is natural beauty and a glowing skin. The
major culprits that ruin and play havoc on our skin
are ultraviolet rays, pollution and stress to some extent.
However the most important thing for a glowing and a
fresh look and skin is regular exercise and a balanced
diet. However at the same time you also need to give
your skin a little time for its care and here are a
few tips for your skin care regime.
skin requires proper cleansing to keep it properly toned
and clean. Cleansing removes the dust and stress from
your face by cleaning the pores and circulating the
blood supply. Use a gentle cleansing agent. Face washes
are specially prepared to be effective at cleansing
your skin gently and tenderly. For your body use a good
mild and moisturizing soap.
It is essential to use good moisturizers since the UV
rays and pollution dries your skin thoroughly and makes
it lifeless. There is a range of moisturizers available
in the market to suit your skin type but what is important
here is to pick the right one with the right components
in it. Choose moisturizers, which have anti-aging ingredients
and vitamins, added to it and use it regularly. Vitamin
A or Retinol and Alphahydroxy Acids are the best anti-aging
agents. There are several salts of vitamin A and isotretenioin
is found to have definite anti-aging properties and
is very effective. It is also an effective care for
acne but it dries the skin and also can give mild irritation
and hence has to be used under the supervision of dermatologist.
Vitamin C is found to have antioxidants and thus has
a protective effect on the skin. Vitamin E is also an
antioxidant and works by quenching oxygen radicals.
Oxygen radicals are formed which causes damage to the
skin because of pollution and ultraviolet rays. Collagen,
Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid are all good moisturizers
as they have a good water binding capacity. Ceramides
work effectively on the skin barrier function as well
as in the metabolism of the skin. However all these
components have to be present in a proper concentration
and then only can they be effective.
With the rise in pollution level and the intensity of
the ultraviolet rays it is very essential to use sunscreens
during daytime to protect your skin form any kind of
damage and premature wrinkles even if you are at home
because these rays come in through the windows and there
is no running away from it. The UVA ultraviolet rays
penetrate deep down in the skin and damage not only
the top layer of the skin called epidermis but also
the collagen and elastin tissues thereby causing wrinkles
and sagging skin. These rays tan your skin and also
harms the skin immune system thereby making the skin
vulnerable to allergies. Another type of UV-rays is
UVB. The sunscreen you use should denote the sun protection
factor (SPF) and the approximate measure for protection
against UVB is 30 or higher is always better and also
check out the protection measures against UVA.
Facial is also a vital step towards beautiful skin.Facial
thoroughly cleanse your face and remove the top dead
layers of the skin resulting into having a beautiful
and glowing skin. Facial moisturizers your face effectively
and help in faster cell reneval and relaxes the muscle
of the face. Facial can also treat problems like dark
patches, treating acne, restoring skin colour and toning
the skin. Facial must be done at least once a month
and by a professional beautician.
