Top Hacks: 7 Skin Care Tips and Tricks

Skin care tip: Make sure you use a sunscreen even when you can't see the sun

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Sleep undisturbed for 6-8 hrs to prevent eye bags, patchy skin
  2. Eat almonds to fight natural oxidation that can lead to wrinkles
  3. Prevent getting stressed as it can cause hormonal imbalance
Do you often feel that your skin is dry? Does it easily peel away or sprout acne? If the answer to any question is a yes, then you need to take better care of your skin. Not only does our skin protect our organs from the uneven temperature, germs and toxic chemicals, it can also signal how you are feeling. While quitting smoking may be a tough thing to do to save your skin from its hazardous effects, there are other simpler ways you can care for your skin. Here are 10 that dermatologists often recommend:
  1. Sleep more. Inadequate sleep can lead to scary and dark eye bags under your skin. Make sure you sleep for at least 6-8 hours every night and limit any activity that prevents a good night's sleep.
  2. Stay sun protected. The UV rays of the sun can be extremely damaging for your body. To prevent premature ageing of your skin, always wear a sunscreen (even if you can't see the sun). And choose the ones with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  3. Massage gently. Whether it rubbing lotion on your arms, legs or face, don't vigorously apply it. Instead, gently run your fingers in a circular motion to increase blood circulation in the area and hydrate your skin well.
  4. Almonds are great. Inflammation, that occurs in our body naturally due to oxidation can cause fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Nuts like almonds have essential amino acids that fight skin infection and inflammation.
  5. Stock up on Vitamin C. The inner state of your body's organs can show up on your skin. And very less foods are as good for your heart, liver and kidney as citrus ones. Include oranges, lemons and grapes in your diet.
  6. De-stress. Being overtly stressed can spike the production of hormones like cortisol that can interfere with your hormonal balance and cause excessive sweating and even psoriasis. You can perform breathing exercises, take a walk in the park or find a support group to relieve your stress.
  7. If you have pigmentation, swelling or infections on your skin, use ice compresses or even vegetables stored in the freezer like peas to soothe the skin. This is particularly effective to fight eczema.
