Is your skin healthy?

‘How you feel is what you reflect.’ We have heard this statement many times. But never paid attention to the insight it gives us. It is difficult to stay positive in these times where you are restricted to go out, and are always surrounded by negative news. This can be seen on your face.

When we say ‘Follow these easy steps for bright skin’ we do not mean a fairer skin. The colour is not important, health is. The major component of a healthy skin is the natural glow you radiate from within.

There are many habits that affect our skin over the time; we often don’t realize how our urban lifestyle is stealing the charm from your skin:

  • Dehydration– we take our body’s hydrating capacity for granted. Intake of fewer liquids, especially in India’s summer season actively encourages the body to several problems, one of them being unhealthy skin.
  • Poor diet– with our uncertain lifestyle, our body tries to adapt to the changes but it has its own limitations.
  • Sleep deprivation– Late night binging on Netflix and negative thoughts are taking over our sleep cycle, resulting in dark circles, not-so-fresh skin and open pores
  • Stress – We understand that uncertainty of our jobs, and most importantly our lives is constantly ticking in our minds, giving stress to our mind, affecting our body, and reflecting in our skin.
  • Environment – This factor is certainly not something you can take control of, but you can practice a DIY routine to avoid a larger effect on your skin. In a dry weather like summers our skin loses its charm by extracting natural moisture of the skin.

How to cure dull skin?

Dull skin is mainly the lack of radiance or an uneven tone. You might feel your skin is way too tight sometimes or have open pores. This is all due to your negligence towards it. A couple of small changes in your routine habits can make a big difference to your skin. Let’s get you your luminous glow back by following below steps:

  • Drink lots of liquids, preferably water, one glass every hour.
  • Be mindful of what you’re eating. Add more vegetables to your meal to increase the intake of skin loving nutrients and antioxidants.
  • Binge on fruits that are naturally rich in nutrients instead of cookies and cupcakes. For a healthy start to your day explore smoothies with seasoned fruits.
  • Get your beauty sleep in place. We understand how stress has taken over your mind and sleep. Best way to relax your mind before you go to sleep is practice Yoga Nidra. You can view Tattva Spa’s guide to a healthy sleep and waking up fresh.
  • Know what’s best for your skin. Use rose water or face wash to regularly wash your face. Remember not to overuse these products. You can also go all-natural by applying aloe-vera, raw potato, raw tomato and other organic elements.

Eat your water in summers – stay hydrated!

Water

Up to 60% of human adult body is water; hence it demands more hydration in this season. As we approach the grishm hritu or the summer season, our body demands more water. Experts suggest that our diet should have 50% – 60% of water content to meet the needs of our body. Our body uses water to maintain its bodily functions and maintain the body temperature. It loses water through breathing, sweating, digestion and other physical activities. It’s important to rehydrate by drinking fluids regularly.

Lack of water affects one’s health; skin being no exception. Dehydration leads to dry skin, making the fine lines visible, dullness to the skin and deteriorating skin texture. Having said this, drinking excess water may also cause harm to our brain cells. Our kidneys get rid of the excess water every hour. Our lifestyle is such that we might skip regular intake of water in a day. Not to worry, because we’ve got you some tips for eating your water. To make sure your body is hydrated, include the below in your food habits.

Low fat yogurt

Ice creams and frozen yogurt have been summer favorites for everyone. Apart from being a rich source of calcium, proteins and vitamins, yogurt contains more water and is a fuller to stomach. It may come as a surprise to you that it has more than 80% water content. Additionally, it also has probiotics that enhances the gut and leaves your skin glowy.

Salad delight

As cliché as it might sound but salads are a very good source of vitamins and iron. With more than 95% water content veggies like cucumber, radish, and tomatoes make the best choice to be added in your salad plate. A small bowl of salad with fresh vegetables is full of nutritional benefits for your hair, skin and nails.

Fruit popsicles

 

Including fresh juicy fruits in your diet has always been a good idea. The context of these fruits for summers may not be as fresh as they are. The water content in fruits – watermelon, mango, strawberry and musk melon is as high as the calcium and vitamins in them. With no added sugar these can be healthily consumed through a salad or popsicles.

Excess water intake may affect our brain cells and lead to swelling, while lesser intake of water is also harmful. Here are few tips to drink water wisely.

  • The age old recipe of lime water, or popularly known as nimboo pani,is a very healthy drink to boost your body’s immunity in summers and keep it hydrated for long hours. Please be ensured that more than two glasses a day can be overwhelming for your stomach.
  • Lack of water in your body might give you troubled stomach. Beneficial for digestion and rich in vitamin C jaljeera is a perfect remedy in such situations. Add mint leaves to for that extra zing and some extra nutrients in your drink.
  • Buttermilk or the famous Punjab drink lassi is another very good source of hydration. You can even replace a meal with thick sweetened, foam lassi with the biggest glass in home.
  • Not everyone is fond of the sweetened buttermilk, hence, the masala chaach. As the name suggests it is spicy in taste. You can add more carbohydrates, iron and vitamins by adding few curry leaves. You might not see the benefits of this drink immediately but curry leaves help your heart function better and enliven your skin and hair with vitality.
  • Avoid alcohol based drinks. Yes, that’s right! They dehydrate your body, especially brown liquors that have high percentages of alcohol. But, if you must, then opt for Gin & tonic or Vodka & tonic or fruit juiced based liquors like chilled beer (in a limited quantity of course).
