Skin is the largest organ. It’s like a dress you wear all your life.
Today people have realised the importance of taking care of themselves.
The awareness of self-care and self-love has grown drastically. People
are at the gym working out for hours, making sure their diet is on place
and the skin is glowing. Today, in the world Instagram and filters we
all thrive for crystal clear skin. Well, thankfully we don’t care about
the complexion much as we have learnt to be comfortable in our skin
tone. And that is important. An acne or a little fat in the sides cannot
lower your confidence. It is important to take care of yourself not to
change yourself but to enhance and maintain yourself.
It’s always a great idea to invest in a healthy lifestyle and skin. Your skin speaks your age. And none of us would like to look older than our age. In this century of pollution, UV rays, smoking, hectic lifestyle, stress, unhealthy lifestyle, etc. contribute towards the damage of skin. This speeds up aging and makes one look older than their actual age. Therefore, it is important to take care of what you have and maintain it well.
To start with, firstly know your skin type. Check whether if it is oily, dry or combination skin type. If you don’t know, do go to an expert skin care treatment clinic or DIY at home. Before you go to sleep, wash your face. Don’t apply any cream or anything. Sleep with room at normal temperature without the a/c on. Next morning as soon as you wake up tap with your fingers and check your face. If it feels dry, stretchy and itchy that means you have dry skin. If it is dry all over and oily in the T-zone you have a combination skin type. And if it is oily and sticky all over then you have oily skin type. On the basis on this you will be choosing everything that goes on your face. From the moisturizer to your foundation everything depends on your skin type. So, make sure you get it right.
