Of the many reasons for a dull looking skin, the most common reason is lack enough sleep. Make it a point to REST atleast 8 hours on a daily basis . It is when we sleep that our cells repair and get rejuevenated.
Just like our rest of our body our skin is a reflection of our inner health. A diet lacking in vitamins and minerals can make you look listless. Ensure that you eat a well balanced diet with coulourful veggies a part of your daily diet.
Keep yourself well hydrated making sure you drink plenty of fluids this helps maintaining a supple skin. Drinking Booze and caffeined drinks can dehydrate your
skin . Having a high consumption of sugar in your diet can lead to breaks down of collagen and elastin.
Exfoliate dead skin regularily, Use a good scrub on your face and body . This will not only remove dirt and pollution off your face but will help to keep your pores open.
Lastly use a simple face mask to detoxify your skin
Here’s my Favourite mask recepie
1 tbspn gram flour (besan)
1/4 tspn tumeric powder ,
1 tbspn fresh cream/ milk (for dry skin OR just add water for oily skin)
Mix the above ingredients and let them dry , Rinse after 20mins.
This is a age old recipie passed down from my grandmother.. it has the goodness of turmeric which acts as a inflammatory as well as antioxidant it removes all free radicals and keeps skin glowing. Gram flour will cleans the skin while cream and milk will have a counter effect on the drying effect of gram flour and nourish your skin.
