beauty tips


Cleansing: Toxins from the body and pollutants from the environment give the skin dull look, soap is good to remove oil for teenagers but later skin becomes dry. So, use a face wash or wipe of cleansers at least 3 times a day.


Moisturizing:- Different skin types need different ones choose from creams for dry skin, lotions for normal skin and gels for oily skin, always moisturize 10 minutes before stepping out and include the neck areas.


Scrubbing:- Exfoliation removes dead skin cells; but skin cells shed every 28 days so use scrub only once a month after 25 yrs of age; use bran soaked in water, moong dal scrub or ones available in the market. Young people should use only peel off masks, no scrubs needed.


Masks:- Fruits like papaya, banana have the capacity to dissolve toxins when applied, oily skin can use multani mitti pack but use them not more than once a month or before an important day  out.


Protection:- Never go out without a layer of protection at any age, which can be compact  powder, foundation, moisturizing lotion or sun screen to prevent dust and dirt harm you.


Water spray:- Sprinkle water on face and neck every morning. Use a spray bottle and take care not to rub with towel but to pat dry. Spraying removes toxins collected at night and increase circulation of blood.


Moisturize: Use moisturizer when skin is still damp then wait for 10 minutes before stepping out in fresh air.


Water intake:- lukewarm water to which honey can be added takes away the puffiness of face caused by fluid retention at night.


Meditate: If not daily at least once a week to have calming effect and for the inner glow to show on skin.
