In these days when fashion is now a thing so much so that pictures are touched up with filters to make them perfect, it’s a no-brainer to say that we will very much like to look like the perfect pictures we spend time and sometimes money editing. We want that healthy glow, the smooth skin, perfect brows etc and these are not meant for the cameras alone. We can actually look super great if we can just invest more time in our self-care. Here are some rules to begin with:
SUNSCREEN IS A MUST
Always go for products especially body cream, foundations etc with at least SPF 30. We have to make the conscious effort to protect our skin from the sun’s aging properties. Sunscreen is very important to block off the UVrays which may tend to darken our skin more than usual and may even cause us sunburn. So if there is no sunscreen component in that product, keep searching.
NO, NO TO THAT SWEET TOOTH
That Chocolate may be good for your skin doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have self-control when eating them. Too much sweet tooth can lead to not just weight problems but more. Eating too much sugar can cause glycation – a state in which the body doesn’t produce enough collagen and knowing how important collagen is for elastic, youthful-looking skin, it is importantthat we should all take extra care of the amount of sweets we eat every day.
DON’T JOKE WITH YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP
The skin regenerates during the night so the term “beauty sleep” is not something invented by slay divas to justify their need to stay in bed until lunch time. Losing sleep, stressful schedule and taking work home with you will take its toll on the skin. So sleep, sleep and sleep and you will look younger and minimize your future needs for expensive crèmes and rejuvenating beauty treatments.
BIG VINTAGE SUNGLASSES IS MEANT FOR MORE
They don’t just help protect eyes from sunlight and camouflage dark circles – big sunglasses can be a real lifesaver for that sensitive skin around the eyes. This skin in this area is very thin as it’s the first one to show the signs of excessive sun exposure. So don’t forget to pat in some cream and don’t forget your vintage shades either.
