How To Take Care Of Aging Skin?:
§ Everyone-- women in particular desire for a youthful, toned, bright and healthy skin. And no one wants sagging jowls, fine lines or wrinkles on their faces, neck, chin or any part of the body.
§ The markets are flooded with skin tightening creams or anti aging creams, skin toning creams, which claim to help and correct the aging skin problems.
§ They may be helpful but there are certain measures, which are very beneficial to maintain perfect skin and you can conveniently do them yourself. So much so that you may not even need to use these artificial products.
When should you start taking care of your skin? At what age?
Right from your 20's, you should start taking special care of your skin. As we age, the skin slowly and gradually starts losing its moisture. The skin may start looking dull.
Direct Sun exposure, unhealthy lifestyle, poor food habits, too much alcohol and lack of nutrition may speed up the process of aging.
These signs of aging can be delayed by adopting a healthy lifestyle, taking proper and nutritious food, enough sleep etc.
What is a proper diet and lifestyle pattern for skin care?
A nutritious and balanced diet, enough sound sleep and relaxation are very essential to maintain youth looking skin.
Smoking, too much fat in your diet, junk food should be avoided as far as possible.
Fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamins A, B and C should be included in your daily portions. For example Orange, Carrots, Spinach, Broccoli and others. Anti oxidants rich food is best for your skin.
Water intake should be adequate for that supple, flawless skin. Water keeps the skin hydrated. In winter season, we need more hydration.
The Right Way To Skin Massage: Its Benefits!
You should regularly massage your skin with Olive oil or any suitable oil. Apply gentle upward strokes starting from the neck upwards towards the forehead and temples.
The idea is to make the massage anti gravity and anti sagging.This helps to maintain facial contour as far as possible.
Massaging is also necessary for hands and legs with the same principle.
If you are using a cosmetic product or a moisturizer for massaging purposes, you must follow the guidelines provided on the pack.
This is the standard rule to be followed, if you are using a skincare product.
# Cleansing means loosening dirt and dust and unclogging the skin pores by using warm water. After cleansing, cold water should be used to close and tighten the skin pores.
# Toning removes excess cleanser, that might be left on your skin. Toners also stimulate circulation.
# Moisturizing means protecting and rejuvenating the skin. They can be chosen according to the different types of skin--dry skin, oily skin or normal skin.
They can be available in the form of gels, serums, lotions , creams or with SPF for Sun protection.
