Summer is already arrived and we all are fighting it out. NewspapersI magazines and Television shows are now flooded with skin care tips. All these are helpful, but how seriously we follow them. Some of these methods force us to spend without actually knowing the benefit for our body.
Today there is need to rise one step above the wide range of products available in markets. Secondly, carefully study all the features, benefits and side effects to them. Then only invest your hard earned money. I shall reveal my personal experience in skin care with things available at our home. Finally, we have to change our lifestyle. Lifestyle is such an important part today, if ignored can prove us costly. For this, we first have to change our mindset. Change our attitude, think positively. All these small changes will reap your long term dividends, I can bet on it.
The first challenge we face is summer skin burns. If you are moving out in sun or do field work then sun rays are the first challenge you face. Prolonged exposure to sun rays causes many skin related problems like acne, skin burn, rashed, irritation, redness and others. To minimize or to completely avoid all these problems you have to take some simple steps :
The first step is understand your skin type, whether it is dry or oily. Secondly use a good quality of herbal lotion, sunscreen based and Aloe Vera is an ideal choice, it helps to keep your skin cool. Drink lots of normal temperature water to nourish your skin and compensate loss of water due to heat in body.
Lifestyle irregularities are the root cause of all types of problems in our life. In todays world, it is very important to maintain a disciplined and simple lifestyle. As far as skin care is concerned, our lifestyle diet is the number one factor. Wrong eating habits such as too much of junk food, eating at irregular intervals, immobility i.e. sitting at one place for long hours, lack of exercise, too much intake of tea, coffee, alcohol, not having sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables. All these small factors though, if we take proper care and planning can help our skin to remain glowing and healthy. It plays a vital role in anti- ageing.
During summers, one thing we never let off our hand is, remote of our air conditioners. Like whenever possible we prefer to remain in air condition, it may be our home, cars, shopping malls, gyms, offices. This problem is prevalent not only in western countries like U.S.A. or Canada, even in other Asian and African countries. The negative effects of spending long hours in air conditioners are, they reduce moisture levels in air, causing dryness of skin. Then our skin is more vulnerable to skin infections. They also prevents sweating. Sweating is natural way of our body to remove toxins. So, please try to move out of your Ac rooms at least for some times during the day frequently. Take a walk, go to the parks, garden.
In summer, make it a rule to bath daily at least once in a day. Water has its natural benefits. It cools our body, keeps it clean, healthy and stress free. Apply little oil or Aloe Vera gel both before and after bath. If your skin is oily, don’t apply after bath. Water will rejuvenate your skin. Avoid using hard soaps, go for good quality mild cleansers or herbal soaps.
Take one piece of papaya, smash it, add some drops of lime juice. Make a smooth paste of it. Apply it over your skin, face, hands, legs. Keep it for atleast 15 minutes for good results. Later, wash it with first warm water then cold. See the result you will get a smooth and cleaned skin.
Today we all are victim air pollution . There is smoke and dust almost everywhere. With the increase in number of vehicles, it has added more problems. Air pollution causes allergy, aging of skin and other side effects. To protect our skin use a good quality herbal moisturizer. Once back home take bath. Add some drops of rose water to it.
Easy Tip :
