Intensive healthcare isn’t for everyone. Not everyone can handle the several time consuming things that go into getting the perfect radiant skin. If you do have the time(and money) to spare, an expensive dermatologist might work for you. But for a majority of all people today, it is barely the case.
If you’re anything like me, you probably would rather watch a movie or stay home and relax instead. But that doesn’t mean, you should deprive yourself of decent skin care. There are a few quick things that will take little effort, very few products that you can get at a discount with some healthkart coupons, and most importantly, some will power. Following these simple tips will ensure that your skin is much more radiant, and rid of pimples and ageing signs.
- The Sun
The sun does many great things with Vitamin D among others but as it turns out, the big ball of fire isn’t all that great for your skin. Especially when too much exposure to the sun is a known cause for wrinkles, spots and even skin cancer. If you live in the more sunny cities in India, try to avoid going out in the sun particularly in the summer. The thumb rule is to avoid the sun during peak hours of 10 am to 2 pm. If you absolutely have to go out, use a decent sunscreen with an SPF of 15 at the least. This is where the healthkart coupons will come very handy.
- The Alcohol and Smoke
No brainer? True. Very important? Also true. It is perfectly understandable that your choices about your personal habits should be out of scope of these tips. But as much as we would like to exclude them, the effect of cutting down on alcohol and cigarettes is too much to ignore. If you can’t quit smoking, you might want to consider cutting down considering the visible changes in your skin you’ll notice within a short period of time.
Surprise! Your diet plays a very important role in what your skin looks like. A healthy diet will not only help you have a great and energetic lifestyle, but also helps you get great skin. Talk about a great deal. Simply add a lot of fruits and vegetable to your diet and balance it with some lean protein and whole grain. A diet rich in Vitamin-C is said to help fight acne too so add some citrus fruits there as well. Most importantly and we can’t stress this enough – avoid overly processed and refined carbs and unhealthy fats as much as possible.
Basically, ease off on the burgers, biryani and stay at least 100 metres away from the nearest pizza joint.
- Care For Your Skin
This is a slightly difficult part that may actually require a decent amount of effort. Contrary to popular lies, it is actually bad to wash your face too many times with soap/facewash. This deprives the skin of the oils it needs to protect itself and keep it moisturised. You can always splash your face with water but limit the soap to only bathing time. Also important is to use warm not hot water for bath/showers. Moisturise your skin if you have dry skin.
- Be Happy
Who knew? Happy people look better for a very good reason. Stress can cause limitless problems to the skin starting from increased sensitivity and acne to more severe skin diseases. The absolute worst thing you could possibly do is get stressed out about your skin. Instead, work on reducing your stress, take breaks and have fun. Doing this might have much more impact than you think is possible.
