There are many reasons why your skin could be deprived of the luxurious silky feel of being super soft and well hydrated. Maybe you touch your skin too often or exfoliate it not very often, or maybe you forget the basics that may not require heavy and crazy rituals. Let’s go back to the basics and embrace these five easy-peasy tips for a skin that’s enviously good looking and oh-so-soft.
That plump tomato in your fridge
Tomato contains lycopene, which ensures your skin is protected from the harmful rays of the sun that can leave your skin dehydrated, dry and flaky. Tomatoes are the best and the quickest fix for glowing skin before an important event. Smash it, slap it on everywhere on your body, put together a healthy snack, read a few articles on skincare, listen to some music and voila twenty minutes will be gone in a poof and you can wash off the tomato glue from your body. Run your fingers across and skin and smile knowing that it worked!
Slap on a mineral-based sunscreen, every day.
Invest in an all organic, mineral-based sunscreen and don’t forget to use it every time you step out – every single time. FDA has recently proposed big changes in sunscreen regulations and the fact that the one you use needs to be mineral-based is a game-changer. Sunscreens with active ingredients such as Zinc Oxide are now recognised as the only safe ones. Alyuva’s Natural Sunscreen Lotion is enriched with Zinc Oxide, which makes it mineral-based and hence safe to use. It sits lightly on your skin and creates a shield which protects it from moisture depriving agents of the sun – UVB and UVA rays.
LOL, LMAO, ROFL, every day
Mental health is hugely responsible for the overall wellbeing of your mind, body and soul. Talking about vanity, well, a good laugh boosts collagen, improves blood circulation and helps you get rid of lines and wrinkles inducing stress. Laugh for no reason, surround yourself with positivity, invest in real connections that nourish your soul and see a difference in the way your skin looks.
Coconut Oil, your skin’s new best friend
The secret behind a healthy-looking and super soft skin lies in your kitchen! Coconut Oil has antimicrobial properties that may help keep your skin clean and disease-free. It contains phytochemicals that are amazing cancer prevention agents that are free from radicals. Gently dabbing on some coconut oil on your skin can keep it moisturised, it’s gentle nature makes it safe for you to use it around your eyes and on your lips.
Bye Bye Chemicals
Is it not enough that your skin gets a healthy dose of pollutants and chemicals every day, every time you step out? Why would you want to invest in skin products that are rich in harmful chemicals too? There are some great skin products in the market that claim to be chemical-free and all-natural. Alyuva’s Natural Body Lotion, for example, is enriched with Grapeseed Oil, Rosehip Oil and Tea Tree Oil, besides rare and exclusive organic herbs like Rubia Cordifolia and Marigold. Natural humectants like Aloe Vera, Glycerine, and Cucumber Extract, which act as essential ingredients that hydrate the skin while moisturizing it from deep within.
