Priya Bhandari, Head of Training, Skeyndor, says, “This Rakhi, as you celebrate the bond of love, why not also celebrate the beauty of your skin? Achieving glowing skin doesn’t have to be a complex journey.” By integrating simple yet effective practices into your daily routine, you can unveil your skin’s inner radiance. Let’s embark on this journey together, exploring a holistic approach to glowing skin.
Skincare Rituals: Cleanse, Exfoliate, Hydrate
Start your day with a gentle cleanser to remove impurities and toxins. “Regular exfoliation, done a couple of times a week, helps slough off dead skin cells, promoting cell turnover. Follow up with a lightweight moisturizer to lock in hydration. This three-step ritual sets the foundation for radiant skin,” says Bhandari.
Start your skincare routine with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, impurities, and makeup, allowing your skin to breathe and rejuvenate. “Follow up with a nourishing toner to balance your skin’s pH levels and prepare it for better absorption of subsequent products,” says Mini Sood Banerjee, Assistant Director and Head of Marketing and Training, Amorepacific Group.
Sun Shield: Protect and Prevent
Sunscreen is non-negotiable. Applying a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30 shields your skin from harmful UV rays, preventing premature aging and maintaining an even skin tone. Remember, sun protection isn’t just for sunny days – it’s a year-round necessity.
Incorporate a vitamin C serum into your routine to brighten and even out your skin tone, combating the effects of excessive cosmetics and pollution. “Hydrate your skin with a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer to maintain its natural moisture barrier and prevent dryness. Don’t forget to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 before stepping out to shield your skin from harmful UV rays,” adds Banerjee.
Sweat it Out: Exercise for Healthy Glow
Engaging in regular physical activity boosts blood circulation, delivering essential nutrients to your skin cells. “Sweating also helps flush out toxins, contributing to a clearer complexion. Incorporate activities you enjoy, whether it’s yoga, dancing, or a brisk walk,” opines Bhandari.
Restful Sleep: Your Skin’s Overnight Healer
Prioritize sleep to let your skin rejuvenate. During sleep, your body repairs and regenerates skin cells. Invest in a comfortable sleep environment, practice a bedtime routine, and aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night.
Mindfulness and Stress Relief: Radiance from Within
Chronic stress can affect your skin’s health. “Practice mindfulness techniques such as meditation and deep breathing to reduce stress levels. Engaging in hobbies, spending time in nature, or bonding with loved ones also contribute to your overall well-being and, consequently, your skin’s glow,” states Bhandari.
Consider using a gentle exfoliant once or twice a week to slough off dead skin cells and promote a smoother complexion. “Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin supple and glowing from within,” feels Banerjee. “Remember, nurturing yourself is a reflection of the love you extend to others, and this festive season, your radiant skin will stand as a testament to the inner confidence that comes from embracing self-care,” signs off Banerjee.
Embrace the journey to radiant skin as an act of self-love and care. By nurturing your skin from within, adopting a mindful approach, and consistently following a skincare routine, you can achieve the radiant glow that lights up not just your face, but your spirit too. Let this Rakhi mark the beginning of your radiant skin journey, a gift to yourself that keeps on giving.
