Did you know? Dull skin is the root to many facial problems such as dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, spots etc. Hence it is extremely important to relax and rejuvenate your skin. Locking the brightness and natural glow of your skin requires simple techniques and remedies which can be followed at home.
Stress and external factors like pollution, dirt, grime etc affects your skin and can ruin it. Splashing your face with cold water, or rubbing it with ice when you get back home from work, can instantly ease your tiredness.” Ice or cold water stimulates blood circulation, which will temporarily invigorate fatigued skin.
Exfoliation is a must
One of the quickest ways to ease tired skin and brighten it is by exfoliating. Exfoliation is essential for removing dead skin cells and revealing fresh and glowing skin. Use a gentle scrub on your face and body at least once a week.
Increase your water intake
“Water is the solution to maintain a healthy body and hydrated skin. You can alternatively use coconut water as well, to brighten your complexion.”Also remember to keep away from too much consumption of alcohol or caffeine — so that your system is naturally hydrated and your skin feels relaxed and supple.
Use a hydrating mask
A hydrating mask can be used to exfoliate and brighten your skin. In a bowl of yoghurt or malai, squeeze some lemon juice, nutmeg powder and turmeric powder. Apply this mixture on your face and neck and keep it on for 5-10 minutes. Scrub it off with water and apply rose water on your skin for instant rejuvenation.
Reduce intake of salt
Sometimes due to the consumption of excess salt in your diet, your eyes tend to become puffy. Reduce your salt consumption to tighten the skin around your eyes and decrease eye bags. You can also use potato peels or cucumber pieces on your eyes to reduce dark lines and wrinkles.
Opt for a night cream
” A good rejuvenating moisturiser at night is a must-have in your kitty. It soothes tired skin and makes you look fresh and hydrated.” Moisturising at night helps promote healthy skin cell regeneration and also supports your skin’s natural repair process. Moisturising regularly will also prevent wrinkles and helps you maintain supple, radiant and soft skin.
A good night’s sleep is a must
Not getting enough sleep can also lead to stressed and tired skin. Getting more sleep on a regular basis will keep your skin healthy and youthful. When you sleep, your body goes through a regeneration process and produces more healthy skin cells, prevents wrinkles and ageing.
