I always talk about the importance of saving our skin from the harsh environmental factors. A lot of our skin woes are genetic, there is so much that our environment contributes to akin ageing and dulling. While we cannot reverse the process of ageing, here are a few easy things we can do for a better skin. With SOS day plans, easy is the only thing we need.
5 Habits to start for better skin
- Have a good night sleep
We all know about the emotional, physical and psychological benefits of a good sleep. It doesn’t end there. Our body removes dead blood cells and toxins while we are asleep so it’s utmost important to sleep like a baby. Not getting enough sleep can take a toll on our skin, so every hour matters.
- Follow a skin care routine everyday
I always feel confident when my skin behaves in the most friendly manner. My AM:PM skincare routine has helped a lot in that. Over the months, I’ve seen a considerable change in my skin’s health with regular care. Our body needs our attention, always. It’s always fun to try new products. I’m in love with the Minimalist Vitamin C 10% + AG 1% daily serum. The goodness of vitamin C has brightened my dull skin. The serum gets instantly absorbed by the skin.
Having a skin care routine is a habit you must inculcate right now for a healthy skin.
- SPF, SPF, SPF. I can’t stress enough on the use of a good spf in your lotion, sunscreen, moisturiser et al. I’m using Cheryl’s DermaShade SPF 30 Spray and it’s a treat. Whatever your brand, don’t leave home without a strong layer of spf.
- Hands off your face. We don’t realise but we keep touching our face throughout the day. Keep your hands off your face and do yourself a big favour.
- Pay attention to what you eat. We are what we eat. Our diet and nutrition make a huge impact on our skin. Pay attention to the foods that trigger breakouts. You might have sensitivity to some food items that you aren’t even aware of. Try to incorporate a lot of anti ageing foods in your list like avocado, spinach, nuts, blueberries and broccoli. Broccoli is my favourite, by the way.
I can go on and on with the list but start with these 5 Habits for better skin. These are some of the easiest to start with!
