Humans are always in the learning phase so you can learn things whenever you want. There are many things, which we do in an incorrect manner taking extra effort and time from us. We are not going to discuss your jobs or relationships but about the things which you are doing wrong from the start.
Sometimes, the mistakes we make unknowingly affect our life and personality in some way. There are many things, which we do wrong on a daily basis, and yet, we are unaware of them.
Even so, we’re always ready to learn something new. We reached out to a few experts to learn about some other things that the typical person does incorrectly, despite their best efforts. The results were fairly surprising.
“Beauty is an inner phenomenon. Beauty is not in objects, not in people, not even in the eyes of the beholder. It lies in the heart of every person,” says Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and this beauty in the heart reflects so naturally as radiance and a glow on the person’s face.
Beauty goes farther than being just skin deep. Yet our skin is one of the most visible expressions of this beauty.
HERE ARE 10 THINGS TO TAKE NOTE OF FOR A GLOWING AND HEALTHY SKIN
SLATHER ON THE SUNSCREEN
We know, we know—you’ve heard it a million times, but wearing sunscreen is the single easiest way to prolong healthy, glowing skin and look younger for life. “Ninety percent of wrinkles are from sun exposure,” says Day. “It’s so much easier to prevent the damage than it is to fix it afterwards.” That means no slacking during winter months either, when rays are just as strong and can reflect off of buildings and sidewalks. Look for a formula that offers broad-spectrum protection to guard against UVA rays (the ones that cause premature aging) and UVB rays (one of the main causes of skin cancer)
PUT YOUR SKIN STASH IN PROPER ORDER
When it comes to glowing skin, the sequence in which you apply your products could be even more important than the products themselves. Reach for those with the most active ingredients as soon as you wash and pat skin dry. “These are the most powerful, so you want them to come into direct contact with your skin,” says Syed Amiry, a dermatologist practicing in Reston, Virginia. If you’re using more than one active product (like an antioxidant serum and Retin-A), start with the thinner one. “Anything that’s water soluble should go first, followed by the product that’s thicker and creamier. If you do it in reverse, the heavier cream will block the ingredients of the lighter one from penetrating the skin, so they won’t have any impact.” If you need moisturiser, it’s next up in line, followed up by—what else?—sunscreen each morning.
DON’T NEGLECT YOUR NECK AND CHEST
Most of us are guilty of stopping our skincare routine as soon as we hit our chin. And our neglected neck and chest take vengeance by wrinkling, sagging, and displaying dark spots that beg to be hidden by a turtleneck. “The skin on these areas is thinner, and doesn’t have a strong blood supply, so it doesn’t heal well,” explains Amiry. “Plus it’s an area that we often forget to protect with sunscreen.” Use the same products as you would on your face, but start lightly (every other day) when applying active ingredients like retinols or acids since they may cause some initial irritation.
Drink More Water
Something as simple as replacing all the soda, milk, juice, coffee, energy drinks, and alcohol you drink with water can make a humongous difference to your skin! Not only are you hydrating your body with an essential, life giving substance, but you are also eliminating all the other not-so-great-for-you stuff in the things you were drinking before – like sugar and caffeine.
Throw Out all Your Harsh Commercial Products
Your skin would probably be a lot better with a lot less acne if you would only stop attacking it with all those harsh cleansers, moisturizers, and acne creams. Sounds counterintuitive to what we’ve always been told, but it’s true. Those aren’t helping you to have nicer, smoother skin.
Try switching to gentle, completely natural skin care. Or you could even try foregoing all skin care completely, for some surprising results.
Invite More Fun and Laughter Into Your Life!
Don’t take life and yourself so seriously! Life is full of pleasures and is meant to be enjoyed.
It’s okay if you don’t eat 100% healthy food ALL the time.
It’s okay if you don’t look like a supermodel on the cover of the magazines. Nobody does. Not even the supermodels themselves look like that, due to the use of professional makeup and an excessive use of photoshop.
It’s alright to have some spots. In fact, it’s normal. No one except you really notices them that much. People actually like you for who you are – and you have amazing unique qualities that are so much more important than what you look like. If you disagree because of the culture of sex and objectification that we live in – well, you need to realize that our culture is purposely fabricated in this way because the worse we feel about ourselves, the more money it makes for people who want to sell us things. That’s the truth, and don’t think it isn’t. It’s difficult not to let it get to you, but believe me – you DO have self worth that is so much more than your looks.
You need to do what makes you happy, and don’t let acne hold you back. So many people create their own acne by allowing their spots to control them. It seems like a paradox, but letting go a little and allowing yourself to laugh, play, go after your dreams, and really enjoy yourself no matter what life throws at you can be one of the biggest steps you take right now to make your skin, and your life, better.
Sweat it out for healthy skin
Some running, jogging and a few fast-paced rounds of surya namaskars will give your body the necessary blood circulation. The sweating will be good for you! Be sure to wash yourself with some cool water soon after so that your skin is left clean.
you need to consider your skin type.
If you know you have really sensitive skin, skip products with abrasive scrubs and limit exfoliation to once a week. You can try exfoliators with fruit enzymes as they are gentle on delicate skin.
If you’re prone to acne, you can use exfoliating products with retinol. Of course, you have to consult your dermatologist first as most retinol products need prescriptions.
For oily skin, you can use a physical exfoliator, like a cleansing brush or a scrub, twice or thrice a week.
