Skin, our holy temple. Trends come and go but good skin always stays in trend. Hmm, we do take care of our skin in bits and pieces, we try out those crazy home remedies and mix bizzare ingredients together in hopes of a clean, glowy skin. Well, sometimes we also use that Korean mask sheet and feel like utter princesses! 2020 gave us a wave of what-the-hell-is-happening with the virus and we're yet to live with it in 2021, but, what about your skin? Has skin-care been on your priority list? If not, let's put that up now! You need to take care of your skin in these tough times! From those sweaty masks to washing your hands a gazzilion times! How many times did you wash your face today?
5 skin care tips that you didn't know you needed!
#1 Sunscreen : it's 2021 and if you don't got your SPF then that's going to be a problem! It's important to the top to make sure you protect your skin from the sun. Exposure to the sun can cause wrinkles, age spots, tan, etc. In fact, 90% of skin aging is caused due to UV radiation of the sun. It is best to use sunscreen of SPF 30. Apply a good amount of that, make sure you're well armed!
#2 Warm, Not Hot : We're not talking about the weather honey. Washing your face with hot water can wash out the oils and make your skin dry, which is absolutely not what we're looking for in 2021 or beyond! Instead use warm water to make sure you're gentle on your skin and don't scare it with that boiling temperature.
#3 Hydrate : Make sure you moisturize your skin well, use that well. You need to hydrate your skin at all times. Apply your moisturizer after washing your face every morning and night. The skin best absorbs the moisture and locks it in for a longer time when applied on damp skin. For our dry-skin buddies, it is advisable to apply moisturizer with a good amount of SPF for everyday use.
#4 Watch your diet : You are what you eat. Make sure you eat right and think about your skin before eating that food you've been craving. Control that junk a little, do it for your skin!
#5 Don't pick! : Do you still pick your pimples? My friend, what's up with you? Stop that! Picking your pimples not only multiplies them but also causes inflammation all around. Now, you have 3 pimples, popping out in bright red color because you decided to play around with them! We don't want that, do we?
Take care of your skin, whether it's 2021 or not! She's been there with you through thick and thin, when you cried tears and when you jumped happy. Your skin was there all along. So, dedicate this 2021 to the love story of your skin and you.
