Unblemished, flawless skin is what every woman on this planet dreams of. Skin happens to be the largest organ of our body and it is among the most delicate ones too. You stay up late night, and wake up to dark under-eye circles; zits pop out mysteriously right before a date or an important engagement; patches show up right before your next holiday – the stress is real! As we move into the colder realms of the season, it becomes all the more mandatory to update our basic cleansing,toning and moisturising regime to something more winter-friendly. With some tender care and a few home remedies, it would be no rocket science to attain natural facelift treatment, without running to a surgeon.
1) MOISTURISE and EXFOLIATE REGULARLY
This one goes without saying. To avoid dry, flaky skin, it’s mandatory to use heavy moisturisers on your skin. Even if you have oily or combination skin, winter dryness will be inevitable, so make sure you use good body butter and heavier creams during winter. Olive oil is also a wonderful natural moisturiser.
Exfoliation is equally important to remove flakes and dead skin from the surface. It also helps your thirsty skin absorb more hydration from your moisturiser. Try a mixture of rice powder and milk, or a concoction of crushed walnuts and honey to gently scrub off dead skin cells. Try to exfoliate at least few times a week.
2) EXERCISE AND DIET
You truly are what you eat! During winter, when the skin tends to get dry and flaky, it becomes essential to include food that hydrates, thus, soups, salads, juices, and milk should be an integral part of your daily diet. Berries are easily available during winter- strawberries, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, or cherries pick whichever, they are all good sources of vitamins and antioxidants that give your skin a natural glow.
Also, ditch the blanket now! Go for a jog, join those yoga classes, do Zumba or take that spin; all these are natural ways to get positive results on your skin that are almost as effective as facelift treatment.
3) LIMIT YOUR INTAKE OF CAFFEINE AND ALCOHOL
We all just love our hot cup of coffee on a cold winter morning or a shot of brandy in the evening a little way too much, but overdoing these can further dehydrate our body and eventually, our skin. Limit your intake of caffeinated and alcoholic drinks and when you do indulge, make sure to compensate it by consuming lots of water.
4) REMOVE YOUR MAKE UP BEFORE SLEEP
This is a golden rule- no matter how tired or drunk you are, never sleep with your make up on. It will clog your pores at a time when skin actually goes into its repair phase, and you will wake up with blemishes and pimples, that could have been totally avoided. If you don’t have a makeup remover, even olive oil works just as well.
5) DIY FACE MASKS
Restore that youthful glow naturally with some DIY masks this winter. They can actually act like non surgical facelift treatments. In Delhi especially, the winter season can get really harsh so it becomes all the more important to resort to some natural therapies for healthy skin. Try a mixture of warm coconut oil, honey and avocado paste or egg on your face and neck. It is an excellent moisturising mask that will leave your skin feeling supple and soft.
All these natural therapies, however, are preventive treatments that can heal dull, flaky and ageing skin only to some extent. For skincare issues that cannot be healed with just natural therapies, especially in older women, non-surgical facelifts in Delhi are a feasible option.
