Winters bring dry, flaky skin, chapped lips and frizzy hair in their wake.
So if you are headed towards being a December bride, and are suffering not just from pre-wedding jitters but are also stressed about your skincare regimen, here are a few quick tips from our skin specialist to help you look your best on D-Day.
Dr. Rohit Batra, Dermatologists, Sir Ganga Ram Hospitals gets you started on how to get that glow on your skin to go with those blush on your cheeks and smile on your lips!
Stop working late nights! Agreed, you are career oriented, but now is your time to unwind and enjoy these once- in –a- lifetime moments. Working late nights will leave you with baggy eyes, saggy skin not to mention making you exhausted and irritable.
Junk that fast food! Those deep fried, chemical laced food will leave you with not only an upset stomach but also swollen, blotchy, blemished skin. On the other hand, eating plenty of fruits and veggies and drinking lots of liquids will leave your skin bright and refreshed.
Go easy on new skin products! There are several skin types; dry, oily, mixed type just to name a few. Are you sure that new bottle of cosmetics your colleague recommended is right for you? If you really do want to use it, get your dermatologist to give it a quick look just to be sure it’s right for your skin.
Prepare that skin! There are no hard and fast rules that looking after your skin needs to only happen at home. Why not during office hours too? Wash your face at least twice a day to rid your skin of grime. Again eat healthy; avoid oily and grimy snacks including your favorite plate of pakoras!
Burn calories to glow! Sweating helps your skin pores to breathe. And what better way to do it than exercising? You will not only feel fit, but also help your body and skin glow.
Reach for that rose water! If you are a post 30s bride, you might suffer from sagging skin, fine lines, and pimples. One solutions to beat all these skin maladies; rose water. Use it on your skin and drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
Say no to tea and coffee! They contain caffeine which can keep you up at night and rob you of your beauty sleep. Which in turn translates into, dullness and dark circles under your eyes. You could not only eat winter fruits like oranges & grapes, you could apply it on your face as well. Eating plenty of pomegranates, beetroots and amla will help you glow. Avocadoes are a safe bet too; since they are rich in healthy fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants.
Care for that hair! Last but not the least; don’t let dandruff get in your way. Use herbal oils and wash your hair only with warm water.
