Getting Enough Rest is vital for Skin Care

By getting enough rest here I mean is getting enough sleep. We all know sleeping is good for health. Good skin care consists of good sleep too. Sleeping can help to heal your skin in a way which no skin treatment can do. Sleeping works like a repair process for the skin as said by Patricia Wexler, MD, a dermatologist in New York.

 

Drink Plenty of Water

Diane von Furstenberg in her Book of Beauty wrote: “You cannot have a healthy body without drinking a great deal of water. But remember, you can’t just drink a glass of water and tell a glass of water to please go straight to your skin and moisturize your complexion. Water has to be there all the time, doing what it does naturally in a healthy body.” This is no more a myth that drinking water is a bliss for skin. Water helps in your skincare in many ways. It hydrates your skin, it flushes out toxins for your system, leaves your skin glowing and reduces the acnes.

 

Eat Healthy Food

Now that you are stuck at home try to have home cooked meals. Healthy food always helps in good skin care. Foods like carrots, apricots, and other yellow and orange fruits and vegetables, fatty fish etc. are good not only for health or to keep illness away but also it benefits your skin.

 

Use Sheet masks for your face

Skin care is always important and sheet masks are kind of health resort for your face because it hydrates and heals your skin by bringing back its natural glow. Now during pandemic if you can’t but a sheet mask then you can make it at home. Diynatural.com has perfect and simple tips on how to make a DIY sheet mask at home.

 

Don’t stop moisturizing your skin

Now that you are all indoors and you don’t have to go out does not mean that your skin is safe. Even if you are in an air conditioned room your skin is not safe because your skin is exposed to dry air. And even if you have windows with glass shield still your skin is exposed to sun’s UV rays. Apart from that there is also Blue light waves that comes from electronic devices which harm your skin in many ways. So for a good skin care moisturizing is always important, doesn’t matter you are home or out of home as it reduces skin problems.

 

Don’t give up on your skin care routine

Now just because you isolated at home does not mean that your skin is all safe and you will skip your skin care routine. Skin care routine is very important because it helps your skin to looks it best. If you want your can try experimenting with your skin care routine as well and get to know if it suits your skin or not.
