A glowing look for the festive season

Good skin is a gift. One takes various measures to keep their skin soft and smooth and eating hea­lthy is certainly the first and foremost thing to do.

But after repeated trials of short–term practices to keep the skin healthy and glowing one loses the drive to follow the regimen if the results are not as expected.

But the important thing to remember is that persistence pays and that every skin type is different and takes it own time to recover and replenish. So, stop comparing the achievements of others with your own on matters as sensitive as this!

Only after one has achi­eved the continuity in keeping good habits can one experience a change. And nur­-t­­uring a good skin is probably the easiest thing to do. You can keep the skin glowing by exfoliating and moisturising it religiously.

To underscore the importance of skin care, Metrolife spoke to well known beauticians and skin experts on the subject.Puja Taluja, beauty and make-up expert says, “Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin radiant and smooth. If you just want soft, clean skin, exfoliating your skin from head to toe will get you glowing.”

She says, “Exfoliation is especially helpful to those with oily skin. In addition to smo­othening, improving skin tone and enhancing skin’s receptiveness to oil-controlling ingredients, exfoliation helps rid oily skin of dulling skin cells to help keep it clear.”
Ishika Taneja, skin expert from Alps Beauty Clinic advises, “Exfoliation should not be done more than twice a month.”

Taneja has also given a good remedy for exfoliating skin at home; the pack should have two tablespoons of gram slaw, a tablespoon of honey, half tablespoon of oats and little milk. Milk is added ingredient for winter, in summers use curd.

Taneja says, “Honey is very good for skin as it highly nourishes dry parts and is anti-bacterial in nature. For aged skin one can add aloe vera pulp.”

Taluja also says, “Gently massage the mixture for no more than 30 seconds on the face then rinse with lukewarm water. Do not use hot water as this can damage healthy skin cells.”

Taneja says, “Exfoliation is very area-specific, lip, face and underarms are more sensitive, but legs and hands have harder skin and so one must add poppy seeds to the scrub for stronger exfoliation.”

After exfoliation one must moisturise the skin, which is a comparatively easier task.  
“One can use natural moisturisers or thick moisturising lotions, as it is important to keep the skin’s sebum and water level upto the mark,” says Taneja.

“Exfoliation and moisturisation exposes the baby skin underneath, which is soft, he­althy and glowing skin, so naturally that people feel young.”
