Ask a girl what’s on top of her beauty agenda, and the answer will be a clear complexion and glowing skin. While flawless skin is on everyone’s wish list, our stressful lives and unhealthy lifestyle can make it difficult to achieve one but it’s really not impossible. With these simple tips and trusted products, you can boast of healthy, radiant skin in no time.
Our skin’s health is greatly affected by our lifestyle, diet and skincare. Make sure you get proper sleep to rejuvenate the skin and exercise regularly to increase blood flow. Feed yourself plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and drink those eight glasses of water every day so that you are healthy and hydrated on the inside and out.
Not to forget, a good skincare routine makes a huge difference. Taking your makeup off religiously at night, resisting spot squeezing and using products that suit your skin are the foundations for flawless skin.
Given below are some recommendations for products, readily available on Pepperfry, which you can use to get perfect skin.
Cleansing – A great cleanser suitable for your skin type is the first step. Vedicline has a wonderful and affordable range of face washes that you can try. If you have oily skin with an acne problem, go for the Neem Brahmi Face Wash (Rs 125)
Exfoliating – It’s important to regularly exfoliate your skin to rid the build-up of dead, dry skin cells on the surface and to help make it brighter, smoother and fresher. Organic Surge’s Skin Perfecting polish is a wonderful product suitable for all skin types (Rs 660)
Acne Care – Although pimples are your skin’s worst enemy, resist the urge to squeeze as it can cause infections and scarring – much worse than a blemish. Try Vedicline’s Anti Acne Blend to reduce acne, pimples and black heads (Rs 150)
Moisturizing - Hydration is another essential factor in getting perfect skin. Besides drinking plenty of water, moisturizing is truly essential. If your skin is super-dry, try Votre’s Absolute Hydration (Moisturizer) that helps in reviving dry, dehydrated skin and leaves it smooth, soft and beautiful (Rs 475). For normal-oily skin, Vedicline’s Eucalyptus and Rosemary moisturizer (Rs 220) works wonders.
Eye Care - The delicate eye area can also reveal a lot about your skin’s health so add an eye cream to your routine. Votre’s Under Eye cream (Rs 347) relaxes the fatigued and stressed eye muscle and minimizes dark circles, puffiness and fine lines.
Sun Protection - Sun damage is one of the main reasons for early wrinkles. Lotus Matte-Look Sunblock SPF-40 (Rs 225) is one of the best products for sun protection. It combines UVA/UVB protection with skin lightening ingredients to give a uniform matte finish to your skin. Its fast absorption and non-greasy formula ensures a shine-free, light and clean feel.
