Toner helps restore your skin’s natural pH levels, which in turn makes your skin more resistant against bacteria and micro-organisms. It also helps cleanse your skin of dust, pollution and impurities. It is particularly important for oily and acne-prone skin. If you want to use a natural toner, nothing is better than pure rose water that has hydrating, clarifying and energizing properties.
Your skin has a natural barrier to retain moisture, and essential to that is omega-3 fatty acid. Flax seeds on your salad or even walnuts will be an instant boost to your omega-3, thus increasing your skin’s ability to hold onto moisture. Be sure to eat a diet low in foods with a high glycaemic index.
Regular cleansing is must for your skin. Your skin will get dirty with the dust and pollution in the air. It may result in clogged pores which result in Acne. Pores may be clogged due to oil secretion from the oil glands. When you clean your face it will remove all the dirt and grime from your face. Your pores will get open and you will feel fresh as you have got a fresh skin.
Regular detoxification of your skin is very important. As toxin is one type of impurities in your blood so excretion of this toxin is highly needed. Drink a glass of warm water with lemon juice in empty stomach in every morning to detoxify your body naturally.
An eye cream can help moisturize, hydrate, de-puff, reduce dark circles, minimize the appearance of wrinkles and temporarily tighten the under-eye area. Considering that the eye area is the first to show signs of aging, it is essential to take care of your eyes properly. First, you need to remove all your eye makeup. Then, apply an eye cream before going to bed.
The best times to moisturize are right after you get out of the shower and right before you go to bed. Avoid lotions with heavy fragrances and make sure you find a moisturizer gentle enough for every day use with zero irritation.
Many people use sunscreen only on sunny days or when visiting the beach. But the truth is that we need to protect our skin even when we’re driving a car, flying in an airplane, or even in the evening. It’s the daily UV exposure that contributes to the visible signs of aging. A broad-spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or greater is the best.
TIE A BUN BEFORE SLEEPING
Brush your hair and then braid it or pin it up into a bun to avoid knots and tangles in the morning. It will help keep your hair off your face as you sleep. Hair contains oils and dirt that can get on your face and cause pimples and acne breakouts.
