Oh! For a beautiful skin!

Despite of one’s gender, everyone loves to be beautiful. We are keen to show off our best appearance at all occasions. With wonders of makeup, anyone can look gorgeous, but it is momentary! What is most important is being naturally good-looking. All of us are born with beauty which is unique to a person. Even though someone is dark, it does not mean that he/she is not beautiful. What matters is maintaining a healthy body. Our skin, the biggest organ in our body, plays a major role in keeping us fine-looking. Glowing and flawless skin can steal even the attention of a royal highness.

It is pointless to spend a fortune on complicated and extensive skin care treatments in order to be a proud owner of a beautiful skin. It is all depend on your lifestyle. Dedicating a few minutes a day for your skin can bring you astonishing results. Today, we will give you some tips to get started.

Always wear sunscreen

Since we live in a tropical country, we are exposed to a lot of sun rays during the day. Wearing sunscreen is necessary to avoid damages caused by UVA and UVB rays. That helps us evade dieses like cancer and to slow down the ageing process. However, what is the measurement to find out the effectiveness of a sunscreen? When you are buying a sunscreen, always check the SPF value. Higher the SPF value greater the protection it provides against UV rays. For better results, applying sunscreen everyday is necessary even if it is murky outside.

Choosing skin care products

We see various TV commercials of skin care products every day. They look promising, and tempting us to buy. However, not all of these products will have an effect on our skin as we expect. It should suit the skin type. Read the label before you buy, it saves a lot of trouble. Wrong type of skin care products may even harm your skin. The best option is to choose all natural products; it will keep your skin looking gorgeous without the use of harsh chemicals. Wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser as it helps to remove dust and makeup keeping the skin clean. Then apply a light moisturiser, to keep the skin supple.

Massage your face

Massaging the face not more than 20 to 25 minutes, several times a week helps soften the skin and remove dead skin cells with the increment of blood circulation. Before massaging, remove all your make up and dirt. Most importantly, massaging should be done with a light and feathery touch of the fingers. Dry skin should be massaged with cold cream while olive oil is used with a few drops of lemon juice for oily skin.

Drink green tea

Drinking green tea is definitely a good move to make if you want to be healthier. A cup of green tea a day helps you to maintain a healthy weight. Among the benefits we obtain, clear and glowing skin tops the list. Green tea contains antioxidants and vitamins needed for our skin especially people with oily or acne prone skin benefit a lot from green tea.

Exfoliate regularly
The average woman has about 30 layers of dead skin cells on her face. It has benefits like shielding against environmental pollution and UVA rays. However, it has negative effects as well. When the outer layer is thicker, it becomes very stubborn and gives an uneven texture to your skin. These cannot be removed by a regular bath. Exfoliating regularly can tone your skin and reduce acnes. We are not talking about a rough scrub. A gentle scrub that contains fruit enzymes, Vitamin C or other antioxidants, or jojoba beads add extra benefits, like free radical protection and skin brightening. A scrub should be done every other day. Too much scrubbing will remove the natural moisture in your skin.

Apply a five-minute mask

A facial mask also can do wonders to refresh your skin. All-natural (and super fast) egg-white mask is a quick remedy to a younger looking face. Separate an egg, and then apply the white to your face for five minutes before you rinse it off. The egg’s proteins can moisturize and strengthen your skin and help it look fresher.

Live healthier

Many of the best habits for more beautiful skin are habits that will benefit your overall health. Start by eating a healthy diet filled with plenty of fruits and vegetables and lean proteins, and drinking at least eight glasses of water per day to keep your skin hydrated. Next, be sure you get your beauty sleep — doctors recommend about eight hours a day for the average adult. Also, try to lessen the amount of stress in your life, as stress can cause harmful chemical imbalances in your system that could result in premature ageing.
