Keeping your skin healthy can be really tough especially considering the level of pollution. While we can't go to beauty salons every day, it is important to follow basic skin regime to keep our skin healthy and glowing. Cleansing and using ayurvedic herbs such as Neem and Tulsi becomes necessary. So, today, we have shared a few more tips on how to maintain a healthy skin. Find out!
Wash away the pollutants
Start with cleansing, which is a two-step process. First remove the make-up completely, followed by rinsing the face with a sulphate-free cleanser. Non-foaming cleansers such as homemade ubtans are great for cleansing as they give a healing and nourishing experience. One can opt for foaming and non-foaming natural cleansers in morning and night skincare regime respectively.
Opt for natural pollution combatants
Herbs such as Neem, Tulsi, Sandalwood, Moringa and Turmeric are very well-known for their purifying and healing properties. They help in eliminating the toxins and detoxifying the skin with their anti-inflammatory, blood purifying and anti-ageing properties. These can be used externally as well as internally.
Anti-oxidants packed products
Anti-oxidants help to fend off free radical damage and can support healthy-looking skin when taken internally, with the help of a healthy diet and regular intake of multi-vitamins. Anti-oxidants to benefit the upper layers of the skin are also available in skin care products. Look for moisturisers and serums that contain anti-oxidants like vitamins A, C and E.
Night skincare treatment
Our skin has its own day and night biorhythm. During the day, it needs protection and ample hydration, and at night it needs support for its natural regeneration process. Nourishing and moisturizing night creams, rich in active ingredients are useful, as skin works to repair and regenerate itself at night. So, don't miss your ‘beauty sleep'.
Choose a serum or a mask
While serums include anti-oxidants which help protect and repair the skin surface, masking helps in pampering the skin. Use a face mask and let the skin soak it all in and relax.
