  • Sun and skin

Always apply sunscreen with an SPF of 15 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Don’t ever skip on using this product whether it’s cloudy or cold outside.

  • Beauty sleep

Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep. Don’t forget to moisturize your face before you get to bed at night.

  • Hydrate

You should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day.

Don’t ignore to use rose water that helps to reduce puffiness, maintains pH levels, and hydrates your skin.

  • Bedtime

Always take your makeup off before you hit the bed for a good sleep. Don’t skip exfoliating your skin at least once or twice a week.

Fresh fruits, green veggies, proteins, and vitamins – Yes.

Spicy, fermented, salty, fried foods – No.

  • Don’t smoke

Smoking makes your skin looks older and causes wrinkles. Also depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health.

  • Limit bath time

Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time, and use warm rather than hot water.

  • Healthy habits

Take out time for yourself and treat yourself to good food, good rest.

  • Facial massage

Don’t neglect your facial muscles; exercise them for 5-10 minutes daily.

  • Sweat it out

Run, jog or do yoga – whatever you like, but keep yourself active. Don’t skip skincare before or after a workout.

  • Say bye to acne

Wash your face with warm water 3 times a day. Don’t ever pop pimples as it can lead to swelling and scarring.

  • Avoid strong soaps

Strong soaps and detergents can strip oils from your skin. Instead, use mild cleansers.

  • Pat dry

After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin.

  • Go back to your roots

Use Ayurvedic products to nourish your skin and let it breathe better. Just breathing the right way can help you get rid of pimples and acne.

  • DIY hair removal masks

You can use natural ingredients in your kitchen to remove facial hair. Sticky ingredients like egg white, honey, melted sugar mixed with flour can make a good hair removal mask.

  • Homemade face packs
  • Want a mild cleanser: use besan or chickpea flour. To use this, mix besan with rose water and form a paste. Now, wet your face and cleanse it using a paste for a minute. Then, wash it off with cold water. Besan acts as a mild scrub and keeps your skin clean.
  • If you are suffering from acne, you can add a pinch of turmeric to the above mixture.
  • Multani mitti or fuller earth’s pack.
  • Use besan and milk as a face mask.

  • Manage stress

Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin, and a healthy state of mind, take steps to manage your stress.
