The state of your skin tells how good you actually feel! Even though you can cover up uneven skin tone and acne scars with makeup, this doesn’t change how you feel about yourself! And we are pretty sure you all have heard your mum and grandma go on and on about the cleanse, tone and moisturise ritual for healthy and smooth skin, we went and found out some unusual tips and trick to add to your skincare regime for better skin. These tips we are sharing with you might be unusual and strange, but these will make the biggest difference to your beauty routine.
Clean Your Make Up Brushes-
Most of us too lazy to wash our makeup brushes even though they collect dirt and bacteria and are the main cause of breakouts. We must wash our makeup brushes every two to three weeks. Mix a couple of drops of baby shampoo with lukewarm, swish your brushes around, rinse with lukewarm water and lay flat to dry.
Sanitize your Smart Phone-
According to a study, the phone we can’t take our hands off of can get more germs infested than the toilet in the public toilet. While you gossip away with your BFFs for hours, all the germs land on your cheek and jawline which cause spots and irritation on the face. To keep your phone and face clean, use a wet wipe a few times a day.
Sip Some Red Wine-
Wine is made from grapes which contain the most powerful anti-ageing antioxidant i.e. resveratrol. Various studies suggest that red wine can help in maintaining the youthful complexion. However, don’t use this as an excuse to have wine every day; a small glass every now and then is okay to boost your intake. You can even have grape juice as a substitute.
Drop Dairy from your Diet-
Dairy products, even organic products contain cow hormones which help in stimulating oil glands leading to acne. Be cautious of the hidden products in salad dressings and protein bars. So, stay away from any kind of milk products if you want the healthy glowing skin.
Watermelons are rich in lycopene which helps in reducing the damage and redness caused due to the harsh summer sun and reduces chances of skin cancer. You should try and add one cup of watermelon into your daily diet by adding it to your salads or smoothies.
We are giving you another reason to go out and get yourself another pair of trendy sunglasses. Sunglasses tend to provide more protection against under eye ageing and wrinkles as opposed to the sunscreen. So, what are you waiting for, go get a new pair of sunnies!!
Keep your hands off your face because your hands touch so many different surfaces during the day hence making them a dirt magnet for dirt. So f you tend to touch your face multiple times a day you are basically transferring all the dirt on your hands to your face.
