5 Secrets to Ageless Beauty

Skin Care & Treatment - Dr Niketa, Dermatologist, New Delhi
1. Use a Face Wash to wash your face!
Soap is too alkaline and strips the natural oils of your skin. Splashing plain water only allows the bacteria on the skin to flourish unhindered. A soap free face cleanser that suits your skin type is the right way to go.

2. Use Sunscreen everyday!
Yes, even when indoors. Choose a sunscreen that you are comfortable with. Not all sunscreens are oily or sticky. Look for products that are 'Broad spectrum' which means that they protect you from UVA as well s UVB. Generally, SPF 30 gives adequate protection when reapplied 3 hourly. 

3. Cleanse and Tone your skin before you sleep!
Sleeping with makeup is a sure shot way to invite blemished and wrinkled skin. Skin regeneration is at its peak while you sleep. Makeup can clog pores and hamper the natural regeneration process. Make sure you cleanse your skin gently yet thoroughly. An alcohol free water based toner calms the skin and shrinks pores back to normal size.

4. Stay well hydrated!
Drinking 6-8 glasses water a day keeps your system flushed. Try and include Green Tea or Fruit Infusions for the hydration and antioxidants. While partying have your drinks made in fresh fruit juice instead of aerated drinks.

5. Say no to Smoking!
Smoking is the fastest route to dull, lifeless and prematurely aged skin. Active as well as passive smoking causes free radical damage to the skin. This damage is permanent and may not be reversed even years after you kick the habit.

Keep looking beautiful.
