10 APPROVED BEAUTY TIPS FOR THE FACE -EXPERT

## EXPERT BEAUTY TIPS FOR THE FACE ##

Beauty to you should mean skin care rather than makeup. Don’t get us wrong — we are as much advocates of heavy coverage foundations as you are but we know the truth behind some of the most flawless faces and it is none other than a regimental skin care routine and some key skincare tips. If you’ve been suffering from constant breakouts or even if you’re just the kind of girl who likes to go that extra mile to care for your skin, here’s a checklist of the best and most effective daily beauty tips for your face.



Nourish your skin

Playing trial and error with your cleansing products can harm your skin; the products may have ingredients that counteract each other, resulting in breakouts and other skin problems. To cleanse the skin, we have stayed loyal to the Fair & Lovely Advanced Multivitamin Face Wash and the results have been very satisfactory. This one prevents the build-up of bacteria, viruses, and pollutants by removing all the dirt and grime from deep inside the skin. It is also a great exfoliator; it effectively removes any dead cells on the surface of the skin. The result? An instantly brightened complexion. Remember—flawless skin makes it much easier to apply foundation and other makeup products, resulting in gorgeous makeup.

Stop over-washing

Staying loyal to your face wash is crucial because cleansing has countless advantages—it hydrates your face, helps make sure your pore size remains consistent, and also enables products to work better on your skin. However, all that being said, a great beauty tip is to make sure that you don’t over wash your face. Your skin is rather sensitive and over-washing will only strip the skin of its natural oils. Dry skin will get further itchy and dry while oily skin will produce excessive sebum (the oily secretion that can clog pores) to compensate for the lack of moisture. Furthermore, the acidic pH of your skin is more prone to changing as water has a neutral pH of 7 and constantly washing your skin will make it harder for your skin to maintain its normal pH balance, resulting in duller looking skin. Hence, one of the best beauty tips for the face would be to restrict cleansing to twice a day with a suitable face wash and lukewarm water. Wondering why we’re suggesting lukewarm water? When you expose your skin to extreme water temperatures, it can make your skin more prone to irritation. Very hot water can cause dehydration, while cold water will not really tighten your pores. This is why it’s best to stick to lukewarm water that will benefit your skin in countless ways.


Promise to moisturize

Whether you swear by the cleansing-toning-moisturizing cycle or not, moisturizing is the holy grail of skincare and one of the best beauty tips for your skin. The rewards you reap are just too great for you to skip out on this step. Depending on your choice of products, this, this can help as a hydrator , protector and anti-Ager. Moisturizing not only helps keep the face hydrated but also ensures that your skin doesn’t overproduce sebum. By retaining water in the outer layer of the skin, the moisturizer forms a coating around the skin—this acts as a shield against the sun and other environmental contributors that deteriorate the skin. In addition, it also reduces the rate at which your skin produces wrinkles. To moisturize, you should definitely rely on the Fair & Lovely Advanced Multivitamin Cream. By using this cream twice a day, you’ll benefit from a more even skin-tone. The blemishes, dark circles, dullness and the tan on your face will also be significantly reduced. Sounds like a magical beauty tip? Try it to believe it!


Don’t forget to exfoliate

It is not enough that you follow the CTM guide to the tee. Exfoliating your skin is just as necessary a beauty tip for the face. As you age, you are increasingly exposed to environmental aggressors like the sun and pollution. This decreases the speed at which your skin cells can regenerate, causing dead skin build up which itself has a multitude of consequences. If not addressed, it can lead to dull and dry skin, excessively greasy skin and clogged pores. Pores ridden with grime can eventually lead to acne and breakouts. Exfoliating increases the blood circulation in your skin. This helps to provide it with all the nutrients and materials that it needs, while also eliminating waste. This is why it is so crucial to use an exfoliating scrub at least twice a week—use one with rounder and smoother particles rather than with rougher granules to ensure that there is no damage to the skin. It also helps make your skin more absorbent, ensuring that you get the most out of all your other products.

Use sunscreen irrespective of the season

Come rain, come shine—sunscreen should be a part of your skin care regime. UV rays are so strong, they can penetrate through clouds and even glass (in case you thought you were safe indoors). This itself should give you enough reason to protect your skin with sunscreen irrespective of the weather. However, if this is not sufficient for you, there are loads of other benefits for you to consider. Apart from evening out your skin tone and reducing facial discoloration, it also delays the formation of wrinkles. Most importantly, using sunscreen has been said to reduce incidences of skin cancer. If you have very oily skin, we recommend that you use a mattifying sunscreen, whereas you should use a hydrating one if you have dry skin. Apply generously every day for best results. One sunscreen that we have been loving is the Lakmé' Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++. This will definitely satisfy all of your sunscreen needs. We get that sunscreen can sometimes feel sticky and gross on the skin, but be assured, after applying the Lakmé' Sun Expert UV Lotion, you won’t even feel like you have a light cream on your skin, let alone a heavy duty sunscreen that protects your skin from 97% of  UVB rays as well as UVA rays.

Stick to a skincare routine

Consistency is key. We’re no doubt always as excited as you (if not more!) to try out new products when they come out, but try not to switch up your products too often when it comes to your skincare routine. We do realise that it will take some time for you to find the products that work best for you, but once you’ve done that, you should stick to them. Although it’s difficult, the best way to ensure that you see visible results is to be patient—using the same items for a sustained period of time will give your skin a chance to react to all the ingredients that help you achieve the glowing skin that you’re looking for. It is also a lot more beneficial in the long run because maintaining a constant routine will help you prevent potential skin issues in the future. Rather than having to go to the dermatologist or get treatment when your skin is being problematic, you can just save yourself the trouble by trusting your individual skin routine to work its magic.

Make sure to remove your makeup every night

Wiping off the mascara off your eyes may be the last thing you want to do after a long day at work, but please, don’t dismiss this crucial step. Sleeping with makeup on has detrimental effects on the skin. All of the effort that you put in by cleansing, toning, moisturizing and exfoliating is pointless if you don’t give yourself a break by following through with this one simple task. Leaving makeup on for many hours allows for dirt and dead skin cells to accumulate, increasing inflammation and giving rise to acne. Even worse, the chemicals and dyes in so many products aggravate the skin when left on for too long, increasing your chances of developing an infection from existing breakouts. If not addressed, it can also add on a few years onto the skin in a couple of months. Leaving makeup on prevents the skin from renewing itself when you are sleeping, thus contributing to the emergence of wrinkles.

Get enough sleep

You’ve probably heard this one a million times, and for good reason. When you don’t get enough sleep, you become more stressed—this causes the increased production of cortisol, a hormone that leads the skin to secrete sebum, which eventually leads to the formation of more acne. Additionally, if you are continuously deprived of sleep, you can become more resistant to insulin which can increase the concentration of sugar in your blood, further contributing to the development of blemishes. So ladies, please do try and get as much sleep as you can because it truly does affect your beauty.

HOW TO GET RID OF DRY SKIN

Everyone’s skin will react differently to the change in seasons. While summer may give oily skin a tough time, winter makes things worse for drier complexions. So if your skin and you are apprehensive every time a new season comes around, worry no more because we've got you covered. Take a look at our complete guide to seasonal skin care tips so that you can flaunt healthy skin all the year through.

Summer time

During the summer season, your skin has a tough time adjusting to the changing temperatures as you jump from the air-conditioned indoors to sweltering outdoors, not to mention the dreaded UV Rays and tanning. All of these factors are particularly hard on dry skin which tends to get drier during this season.

To combat dehydrated, dry skin; you need a dose of moisture with an added bit of sun protection. For that we recommend the Vaseline Healthy White SPF 24 PA++ Lotion which has a triple lightening formula. Its Vitamin B3 and antioxidant content goes deep within the skin to restrict the transfer of melanin. This in turn promotes the correction of dark spots, wrinkles and uneven skin tone ensuring that your skin doesn’t looked baked once you’re out of the sun.


Rainy days

Although we love the season of heavy downpours and endless cups of tea, the increased humidity can impact dry skin in a negative way.

People with dry skin often tend to over-cleanse their skin in the monsoon thanks to the humidity. This is actually contrary to what needs to be done. Over-washing can dry skin out even further leading to dehydrated and irritable skin. In addition, to combat the dry skin, the body may actually begin to produce more sebum to lubricate the surface of the skin.

Therefore, finding a light moisturizing lotion should be of assistance. For that we recommend the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion. Containing Pure Aloe Extract and Stratys 3 Multi-Layer Moisture, the formula will go 3 layers into your skin to leave it feeling healthy and soft

In addition, as tempting as hot showers sound, it is best to stick to lukewarm water instead since it will protect your skin from getting dry further. Secondly, the lukewarm temperature fights excessive oiliness and skin troubles like bacne too.



Wonderful winters

At this chilly time of the year, dry skin goes into overdrive to replenish lost moisture. Hence, the key to happy skin during the winter is loading up on moisturizer and ensuring your skin stays nourished.

To do so, we trust the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Body Lotion. Made with Pure Oat Extract and Stratys 3 Multi-Layer Moisture, this lotion penetrates deep into 3 surface layers of the skin to keep it feeling firm and healthy, even in the harshest season.

When it comes to your diet, dig into mono saturated fats with are high in essential nutrients and healthy fats. Foods like avocados, peanut butter and fatty fish like salmon are rich in such fats which helps keep your body healthy and your skin taut.
