Skin and hair are two of the most delicate parts of a body. Both of these elements reflect your health and make you look good in the eyes of the beholder. The problem is both the hair and the skin of the people can get affected very easily. During the festive season, the high level of pollutants in the air and the high-calorie diet impact both skin and hair negatively. And that is why your skin and your hair require extra pampering once the festive season is over. Here are some tips that can help you to heal your skin and hair effectively.
Drink A Lot of Water
Thanks to the pollution and the changing temperature, your skin becomes very dry and flaky after Diwali. To avoid dryness and prevent unwanted breakouts, you need to detox your body. There is no better way to do that than drinking plenty of water every day. Try to drink 8 to 10 glasses full of water daily to keep your body and skin hydrated and flush out all the toxins accumulating in your body. Drinking plenty of water will also help you to keep your scalp hydrated.
Give Your Skin A Much-Needed Break
The festive season is time for dolling up. That means, for the last couple of weeks, you must be putting on a lot of makeup to steal the spotlight. Now that the festive season is over, it is time for you to give your skin some much-required breathing space. Keep your skincare routine to a bare minimum, and try to avoid using makeup as much as possible. That is not the time for you to put on a lot of makeup. In fact, this is the right time for you to give your skin some love and care that it desperately needs so that it can keep on glowing in the future.
Watch Out What You Eat
There is no doubt that the festive season is all about snacks and sweets. But now that the festive season is over, it is time for you to concentrate on cleansing your diet. Understand that extra sweet dishes and oily food lead to clogged pores and breakouts. To detox your body, you should try to eat more fruits, salads, and sprouts on a daily basis. Along with having healthy food, you should consume nuts and control portions of the dishes as well.
Try to opt for healthy options to settle the sudden hunger pangs. Attend your fitness routine on a daily basis. If it is too much for you, at least try to exercise 3 times per week to burn extra calories. Exercises on a regular basis will also improve your blood circulation level and help you to give your skin a glowing look.
Exfoliation Is Important
You must know how important it is for you to remove makeup before going to bed. Make it a point to wash your face with a gentle cleanser every night. Sleeping with your makeup on can make the skin look dry and flaky. Not only that, if you do not clean your skin on a daily basis, it will lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Another thing that you need to concentrate on is exfoliation. Use a gentle scrub like the LASHIKA Almond & Walnut Scrub to get rid of all the dead skin cells. Do not forget to use a good quality face serum and moisturizer to nourish your skin from within. If you keep on practicing, your skin will become healthy and nourished within no time.
Protect your hair and skin from the harsh sun rays. Make sure that you wear a sunscreen lotion every day to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. You can use an umbrella or a hat to keep your hair and your skin protected or LASHIKA’s Mineral Suncreen SPF 30 or Blue Filter Products. Don't forget to oil your hair on a regular basis to nourish it from within.
Don't Use Styling Products on Hair
Dressing up and styling your hair is a must during the festive season. Now that it is over, you should always opt for hairstyles that do not require any hair styling products or heating. Hair styling may make you look great, but it is not that good for your hair itself. Styling does not allow your hair to breathe at all, which, in turn, affects its quality and health. If you keep on using styling products continuously, it may affect the growth and the health of your hair. Even if you have to use hair styling products for some reason, make sure to wash them off before going to bed.
Oil Your Hair
From now on, you should try to start oiling your hair so that it does not become damaged and dry in the long run. Oiling your hair regularly can keep your scalp nourished. Not only that, it can keep your scalp hydrated throughout the day. After the festivities, your hair and scalp tend to get a bit dried out, thanks to the continuous exposure to styling and chemicals. So, to nourish your hair back to health, you should always oil your hair with hair oils that do not contain any harmful chemicals. Experts recommend LASHIKA’s Onyn Hair Oil to keep the hair nourished.
These are some of the basic tips that you can follow to nourish your skin and hair back to health. Always remember glowing skin and shiny hair are your biggest assets when it comes to looking good. So, if you do not take care of your hair and skin properly, it will, in turn, affect your looks in the long run.
