Seven simple skincare tips
1. Sugary Treats are Not So Sweet to Your Skin
Does sugar affect your skin or it’s not only a myth? While holiday treats are tempting, excessive sugar consumption can wreak havoc on your skin.
Excessive sugar in the bloodstream can cause glycation, which is a natural chemical reaction that happens in the body when sugar levels in the bloodstream just spike beyond that only insulin can handle. Now, this glycation affects the collagen and the part of skin which is responsible for maintaining our skin elasticity. When these two essential skin building blocks become weaker, signs of ageing will be more visible and your skin will start becoming dry, saggy, and dull. The more the glycation will occur in your body the older you will look.
But then, how to reduce the effects of sugar on skin? Before you eat anything, read the food labels first and see how much sugar it contains. This way you can make healthier choices for yourself. Then, replace fizzy drinks, energy drinks and juices with water. Finally, know your body's and its sugar level limit by observing the reactions sugar creates.
2. Moderate Your Alcohol Consumption
Indulging in holiday spirits can dehydrate your skin, leading to issues like sagging, enlarged pores, discoloration, dry lips, wrinkles, sunken eyes, dark circles, acne, and excessive redness. Keep your alcohol intake in check and stay hydrated by increasing your water.
3. Try to Get Enough Sleep
Don't underestimate the power of a good night's rest! Quality sleep allows your body to repair and rejuvenate, reduce the level of stress of your skin and keep it looking fresh and glowing after a good night's sleep.
Since consistent sleep deprivation causes wrinkles, ageing, acne, blemishes and discoloration, aim for eight hours of sleep each night to maintain your skin's natural balance.
4. Beware of Snow Reflection
Snowy landscapes may look picturesque, but they can also amplify the sun's harmful UV rays. Additionally, the winter season comes with it shares of dryness, itchiness, irritation and redness making our skin sensitive.
Protect your skin by wearing sunscreen, even on cloudy days, to prevent premature ageing and reduce your risk of skin cancer.5. Stay Hydrated and Drink Water
Hydration is key to healthy, radiant skin. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin supple and moisturised. Aim for at least eight glasses of water daily to maintain optimal skin health.
Drinking water is the best and easiest way to keep your skin healthier, glowing and fresh. Water does not only keep your body hydrated and refreshed but also maintains your skin elasticity, reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
People think that it’s only the sun that can damage our skin which is not true. UVB rays can burn and damage your skin even at high altitudes which mostly reflect from surfaces like snow and ice.
According to research, snow reflects up to 80% of the sun’s UV light so you can say the rays can hit you twice which increases the risk of cancer and premature ageing. That’s the reason we always recommend wearing sunscreen regardless of the weather.
Always cleanse your skin before bedtime to remove makeup, dirt, and oil, and let your skin renew itself. Opt for gentle cleansers and follow up with a nourishing skincare routine to keep your skin clear and refreshed.7. Make Your Lips Kissable
The season also offers late night parties and celebrations, and your crush will be there too... And for that, you need perfect smooth lips. Like who wants to kiss dry and chapped lips? Definitely no one!
