Pat it Dry: Organic Skin Care & Estheticians tips to pamper your skin!
Let’s start with the remedial therapy that your skin needs right at this second. The best option for you to consider right now is opting for an organic skin care routine.
“Your skin’s glowing!” When was the last time most of us heard this on a regular day? Probably when we still had baby skin. However, with the air getting greyer by the day due to the excessive pollution and work stress making a home in your head, your skin may be suffering more than you think.
If you’re done looking in the mirror to criticize your skin, let’s start with the remedial therapy that your skin needs right at this second. The best option for you to consider right now is opting for an organic skin care routine as with enough chemicals in the air, it’s better to ditch them where we can.
Mentioned below are several organic or, some might even say, ayurvedic skin care tips that can help your skin go from concrete to cushion soft:
1. “Mask” your Tiredness: Coconut oil, honey and matcha for hydration and detoxification
Create a paste with the above-mentioned ingredients and let it rest on your face for exactly ten minutes. Rinse your mask off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry.
2. Use organic scrub, save the fish & water & a lot more in the process
We’re not kidding, most of the store-bought scrubs have synthetic microbeads which don’t dissolve in water and can prove to be toxic for water, fish and cause damage to your dear old drain. Use sugar and honey instead. Mix it well and scrub off then flakes or extra dirt & oils from your face. The best part? It’s quite healthy, so if you have a sweet tooth, you can eat the unused scrub as well.
3. Cucumber Eyes
The age-old method of putting cucumber slices over your eyes is not a hoax. Cucumber has a lot of hydrating agents and Vitamin K. Placing cold cucumber slices over your eyelids can reduce puffiness, dark circles, increase blood circulation around your eyes. The benefits you can receive by just two cucumber slices are too cool. Pun intended.
4. Spot-treat with neem oil
Use a cotton swab to apply it directly to pimples or spots of minor inflammation and let it do its magic overnight. It’s drying and shares similar properties of tea tree oil but neem oil is comparatively more cooling and better suited for summers.
5. Use rosewater as a toner
Rosewater spray is a great natural toner for your skin because it is natural and weightless on your skin. It can be used several times a day. Rose water has cooling properties and supports soft & supple skin.
6. Swab your skin with raw milk—or bathe in it
Once a day, dip a cotton ball into a small bowl of raw milk and wipe your face thoroughly with it to remove dirt from your pores. Thanks to its fats and lactic acid, it has tremendous moisturizing & softening properties.
7. Find your Zen
Or how Master Shifu from Kung Fu Panda says, “Find your Inner Peace” and like us, he wasn’t joking either. No skin care product, no matter how expensive or how potent it may seem, will work on your skin if you keep pondering over an embarrassing thing you did when you were six. Getting to the point, stop stressing over unnecessary things. Sit back and relax.
The Other Approach
Where are all the sensitive skin people at? We’ve got you covered too. Mentioned below are the sensitive skin care tips that we know you have been looking for:
1. Wash your face with lukewarm water
Lukewarm water can help your skin get the steam and cleansing that it has been craving for a long time. However, don’t use hot water and don’t over splash your face. Splashing your face with lukewarm water 7-8 time would do just fine.
2. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!
Still looking for products that can help you in hydrating your skin? Care to open your refrigerator? Found it? Great. Water is the best hydrator there is. Drink plenty of water in a day, even if you’re not that thirsty. They’ve even made an app for it that reminds you to drink water.
Yes, you guessed it right! Sleep routine is the best gift you can give to your skin. Sleep for 8 hours at night. For those who think they will go to bed at 3 AM and wake up at noon to complete 8 hours of sleep, don’t do it. It’s called a “good night sleep” for a reason.
4. Don’t leave your skin naked
Probably one of the less known sensitive skin care tips is that after cleansing, you should not leave your skin naked for more than 30 seconds, as this can dehydrate it, leading to increased dryness. As soon as you have cleansed, apply a toner and moisturizer to lock in the moisture.
The Other, Other Approach
If you’re not yet convinced by our list of ayurvedic skin care tips, we have more in store for you. However, this one comes directly from skin specialists. There are several esthetician skin care tips that can help your skin significantly:
1. Wash Your Face Daily
Washing your face twice (morning and night) with a cleanser can help you get rid of the harmful dirt and toxins while reducing the strain pollution puts on your skin.
2. Neutralize Your Skin with Antioxidants
Pollutants can cause your skin to oxidize. This can lead to premature ageing and irritation. Products including antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C or E, can halt this process and fight oxidation.
Pollution can take away moisture from your skin, therefore, it is imperative to use a light moisturizer each day to replenish the moisture you are losing. The moisturizer must include good SPF.
4. Shield Your Skin
One of the oldest tricks in the book of esthetician skin care tips is SUNSCREEN. Wearing sunscreen daily provides an additional protective layer to your skin. Using high SPF sunscreen shields you from harmful sun rays, air toxins and dirt particles that may irritate and age your skin. Being aware of your environment and keeping up with a thorough skin care regimen will improve the look and feel of your skin, allowing you to continue the activities you love, regardless of pollution.
We hope our tips can help your skin get better.
