Good Skin Days, always!

Indian skin, though naturally blessed with severalinherent advantages, is also subject toa host of havoc-wreakingaggressors -Pollution, excess heat / cold, sun exposure, humidity, dust,etc. in addition tohard or softwater specific to certain regions.Indian women are also commonly affected by PCOD, fibroids, and other hormonal imbalances that play havoc withthe skin.This collective impact of internal and environmental factorsdistresses the skin, reflecting by way ofexcessively oily or dry skin, acne, rashes, blemishes, sun spots and uneven skin tone.

Indian skin has a higher tendency toward pigmentation, having an important bearing on skincare.Brown-skinnedpeople also often tend to confuse skin lightening with skin brightening products, making it vital to understand the difference. Lightening refers to chemical bleaching or other agents that temporarily lighten skin colour, but in the long run trigger further (sometimes permanent) pigmentation. Contrarily, brightening agents are natural remedies like aloe vera, turmeric, Vitamin C, curd, lime, green plum, etc. that even out the skin colour, reduce dark spots, pigmentation, and render a natural glow withoutharming or altering skin texture/colour.

It’s all in the basics

Eventop-quality skincare products and bestnatural skin remedies hold no meaning if the basics of skin hygiene are ignored. Clichéd yes, but here are those reminders:

  • Hydrate! And not just externally. Drink sufficientwater. Calculate your daily drink of water(in litres) by multiplying body weight(in kilograms)x 0.033.
  • When it comes to skin, what’s inside reflects on the outside. A balanced, healthydiet translates to fresh glowing skin, whereas oily/fried/processed foods do just the opposite.A fibre-rich diet inclusive of vitamins and antioxidants can specifically control pigmentation.
  • Sufficient intake of Vitamin C and E is important, dosage based on your nutritionist/ dermat’s advice.
  • That post workout glow is definitely not temporary! A consistent exercise routine preferably coupled with meditation contributes to physical, mental, even skin health.
  • Sunscreen is a non-negotiable aspect of skincare. Whether you’re at home or out, whether it’s sunny or overcast, don’t shun the sunscreen.
  • Stick to mild face and body washes, preferably paraben free. It’s the best way to retain your skin’s natural moisture.
  • Follow a minimalistic beauty routine. Cleanse every ounce of make up before going to bed.
  • Understand your skin type and use only those skin care products best suited to it.
  • Wash your face after waking up in the morning and before going to bed, you’ll see the benefits.
