It's that time of the year when you can literally feel the festive spirit in the air! Whether you're heading out or not, you want to look your best. In addition, you also want your skin to look and feel radiant.
To get your skin festive-ready, here are a few simple things you can do-
Exfoliate your skin at least once daily, if not twice a week. It is the process by which dead skin cells are removed from the surface using a granular substance or an exfoliation tool. It'll help prevent pores from being clogged, improve the absorption of skin care products and make the skin look brighter. You can use loofahs, cleansing scrubs and even brushes. You can make your own DIY scrub, using ingredients like coffee, honey, milk and sugar.
Keep yourself hydrated for that flawless look and perfect glow. Drinking sufficient water will allow your body to get rid of the toxins and help you achieve healthy skin. You can even add a dash of lemon to your water as it helps maintain the alkalinity and acidity levels of the body. Don't forget to use a hydrating moisturiser! This will leave your skin feeling soft, supple and ready for the festivities.
Get moving! Post workout glow is for real. The only way to open the pores of your skin is through exercise. It not only gets your skin glowing, but also enhances the flow of oxygen and nutrients in the body and boosts the production of collagen.
What are celebrations without some soul satisfying food? While it may be hard for you to resist delectable sweets and comfort food, make sure you get your fair share of fruits and vegetables. Your skin is a good indicator of overall health! Add those carrots, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and spinach to your diet- they're all rich in beta carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. Tomatoes are also considered excellent for radiant skin, as they contain lycopene and vitamin C, known to protect the skin cells from harmful UV rays and prevent wrinkling.
Apart from these tips, make sure you de-stress and sleep well!
