Dermatologists advise that the best way to maintain a healthy, glowing skin is to protect it from external skin-corrosive agents, such as intense sunlight, polluted air and hard water. Considering the contemporary lifestyle and environment, is it possible to eliminate deleterious agents completely? Of course, no! So there are natural ways to keep your skin young, healthy and radiant.
The first and foremost requirement is to drink plenty of water, at least 8 glasses a day. Since human body is composed of 67 percent water, you must have an optimum water intake. You can do so by drinking juices that also have essential nutrients like Vitamins A and C. By having a variety of juices from tomatoes, oranges, strawberries, pomegranates, grapes, cranberries, and apples, the body gets its required quantity of water and nutrients, which stimulate the growth of new cells and collagen fibers, thereby providing elasticity to skin.
Some women may start developing premature wrinkles, primarily due to unhealthy lifestyle, intake of junk food and addiction to smoking, alcohol and drugs. It is important to take control of your life by practicing a regular routine, doing exercises and eating a balanced diet. Exercising helps improve blood circulation to the face and head areas, thereby removing toxins from skin.
Natural beauty packs also give your skin a shining look, or you can prepare one such pack on your own as well. Take turmeric and gram flour in equal proportions, and make a paste by adding yogurt or milk into it. Apply evenly on your face and body; wash it off until dry with lukewarm water, and gently scrub in circular motion. If you have acne problems, use clean water instead of milk, and add sandalwood powder to it.
Shahnaz Hussain’s ShaDew Turmeric Pre-Wash Cream is another natural herbal formula that protects your skin from aging and drying caused by exposure to excessive chlorinated water. So wake up, and don’t be lazy in taking care of your skin because your physical looks give the first and lasting impression!
