Christmas Eve is here. The festive spirit is riding high. This time I am not giving you any weightloss tips so my focus is only glowing skin. Everyone wants to look their best, but unfortunately, few of you were so busy that skin care took a backseat. Never mind! It’s time to breathe life into it and stun one and all. Beauty problems are universal but can be fixed. Here’s how:
Exfoliate: In winters, skin becomes drier. Therefore, exfoliation more frequently than summers is recommended. It removes dead skin and prepares it to respond better towards other treatments like cleansing and moisturizing.
Lighten up those blemishes: Sun spots, acne spots, mild blemishes-all cause imperfect skin. Lighten them with skin lightening treatments. Brighten your skin with juicy lemon. Citric acid laden lemon performs numerous functions: exfoliation, lighten brown spots, dull patches and blemishes. Lemon can be used on the skin by dapping on a cotton ball or thinned with water before applying. Let it remain on the skin to dry and then wash with water. Alternatively, apply blemish-free creams.
Acne woes: Don’t touch them, this practice may worsen condition. Sleep straight. Change your pillow covers every four to five days. Keep your hair tied. Want quicker results; try using over the counter cream. New breakout may shatter your festive spirits.
Pay attention to neglected but important body parts: Neglecting neck and chest is a beauty sin. Treat it as an extension of your face. Upper chest area and neck skin is very sensitive and needs care. Use the same cleansing products on the neck and chest area as on the face. In case of intense dryness, massage the area with facial moisturizing masks to get beautiful smooth skin. Now look at your elbow and knees. Moisturize with good moisturizers or apply wonder oil-olive oil. Pour a few drops on the palm and apply over elbows and knees every day. These parts usually get neglected. Oil carries fats and hydrates the skin besides rejuvenating it to make you feel not let down. Take care of your hands and feet as you do to your face. Moisturize them as well.
Alter customary lifestyle: Long, hot showers can be relaxing and soothing but not really a skin-friendly habit, especially when you are striving for a glowing skin in a few days. Stay away from it. Hot water has the ability to drain out the essential natural oils out of the skin making it dry and itchy. Regulate your shower time. Do not spend more than ten minutes (probably with lukewarm water only).
Revitalize the skin: Facial massage renews the skin new. It stimulates the skin for better blood flow resulting in a natural glow. You can opt for a facial at parlor or at home. Some fruit packs act as excellent skin brighteners. If there is no time then buy some skin brightener creams. Don’t forget eyes. Puffy, tired eyes make you look unappealing. Revive your eyes. Moisturize them well. Take sound sleep. This alone will make your eyes glow with life.
Eat healthy: Is your body weight bothering you? With so little time left, practically not much can be done. Nevertheless, at least try not to put on more weight. Cut down on carbohydrates intake to lose weight. A study reveals that a low – glycemic index diet helps in cutting spots as well. Double whammy, isn’t it? Too much salt is the basis of bloated face look. Shun it. Uneven skin tone is the result of not eating a balanced diet. A good amount of fruits and vegetables in diet makes the skin glow. Eat them in plenty. For Christmas Eve, good skin brightener creams can aid in achieving luminous skin.
Humidify the air: Run a humidifier to moisturize the air. The air in winters is dry and causes the skin to obtain parched look. Avoid remaining out for too long. The air outside may take away the sheen you are longing to get. Also, drink water to keep your skin hydrated.
These are simple and effective methods to make your skin glow for Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas!
