There is a reason our mothers didn’t have puffy eyes or graying hairs till their forties. They didn’t live our life. For all of you, your life is a mix of deadlines, dates, night-outs, and stress.
While these tips can be used by anybody, they’re specifically helpful to someone who is currently not thinking about aging or is in their 20s. Remember, your focus should be on two things: hydration and prevention.
Pay attention to the eyes: Most of my life is spent looking at my computer or my phone screen. Here are a few tips to help you take care of your eyes.
1. First up, stop rubbing your eyes. Our eyes and the area around it have a much THINNER layer of skin. Sometimes, a capillary can rupture, causing a bluish cast around your eyes.
2. Make it an instinct to touch the eyes with your ring finger only. They apply less pressure on the eyes without minimal damage to the skin.
3. If you face a lot of puffiness under your eyes, reduce your salt intake.
4. Apply a bit of castor oil, coconut or jojoba oil after removing eye makeup from time to time.
5. I recently read that an actor (I forget her name) has been using an eye cream since she was 16. She’s smart! Use a good eye cream with amino peptides and the goods to help you avoid dark circles, crow’s feet, puffiness and more.
Hit the Snooze Button: The natural process of skin repair and rejuvenation happens when we sleep. So make sure you enjoy sound sleep for 6-8 hours.
1. Make sure your makeup is off your skin is grime-free.
2. Exfoliate your face and body at least once a week. Feel free to use a granular scrub for your body especially areas like elbows, knees, and feet. As for your face, use a gentle exfoliating scrub, face wash or serum.
3. In fact, the SMART thing to do is to make the most of sleepy time. Use a serum/night cream potent in alpha hydroxyl acid, salicylic acid, retinol, and antioxidants. This way you can wake up to prettier skin.
Eat smart: What you eat, your well-being, as well as your state of mind, are all inter-connected. So make sure you make the most of it.
1. A lot of people start their day with a glass of hot water and lemon or a combination of aloe vera, gooseberry. Make an effort. Start out your day on a healthy note.
2. Include a juice at least once a week: especially good on a day you’ve had a night out or you’d like to detox. I also suggest you can go an extra mile and include a vegetable juice.
3. Try to avoid white sugar like the plague. It breaks down collagen, it can lead to acne and causes inflammation. Switch to brown sugar or no sugar, if you can.
4. Finally, pop Omega 3 supplements if you have hair-nail-skin problems. They are great for the skin and make your face glow—you’ll see.
