We didn’t realize when we got sucked into the ways of this crazy world and kept reducing the exclusive time we had kept for ourselves. Gradually you stopped taking time to look into the mirror and wonder if you were doing enough to keep your skin healthy or not. Even if you are someone who stays indoor most of the time, skin undergoes ageing at its own pace and unless you do something about it, you will begin to look more than your age.
To avoid this, you can begin by drinking more glasses of water, eating fresh raw fruits and vegetables and by exercising. Besides these, you can do some of the other things that’ll help your skin.
Some of the things are quite simple and can be easily followed. For example, have a bath with warm water but not for more than fifteen minutes. Choose mild soaps over strong ones, and don’t change them very often. Also, use a cleanser to remove make up. Apart from these things, make sure you don’t expose your skin to sunlight for a long time. Sunlight, as everyone knows, has ultraviolet rays which can damage your skin as well as your eyes. So make sure you have a suitable sunscreen lotion or an umbrella along with sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun.
Even while shaving your skin, make sure you moisten it with a shaving cream or gel, or put a warm moist cloth over your skin to soften the hair. Shaving after a bath also helps. Do use a suitable moisturizer on your skin especially in winter season to avoid damage.
Lastly, avoid smoking. If you do smoke, quit it as soon as possible. Studies have shown that it is never too late to stop smoking. Smoking reduces the supply of blood to various parts which leads to reduced nutrient supply. It can hasten ageing to quite an extent so the only wise thing to do is to quit smoking once and for all.
