A recent study said that Indian women do not go the extra mile to take care of their skin i.e. that they tend to neglect their bodies when it comes to skin care. It is essentially important to shower love to your body with a good skin care routine as skin damage is equally harmful for the body. Here are some of the facts associated with skin care that you must know-
Every skin type requires care:
That is one of the disastrous things to believe as every type of skin demands for meticulous care and love. Some also assume that body lotions are only meant for dry skin, which again isn’t true. Whatever your skin type is, you need a lotion that works best for you.
You can’t ignore moisturizers:
Your skin needs to remain hydrated and therefore, it requires moisture. Moisturizing is a protection from damaging external factors present in the environment. Sun and the pollution can damage your skin to great extents making it irreparable. This is why you need to be selective about your moisturizer as all moisturizers aren’t the same.
No month is an exception to your routine:
Skincare shouldn’t just be limited to particular season. Most Indian women concentrate on their skin care regimes during the winter season as it visibly makes your skin dry. But you need to know that during other season, even if you do not see the changes but changes do occur within. Indian women tend to leave their skin unattended and the subsequent damage triggers in over a time period.
Beauty and Skin care go hand in hand:
Beauty and skin care go hand in hand and helps a woman to foster confidence and attitude. Starting good skin habits at a young age is a very big contributor to younger and healthier looking skin. Also, good eating habits of healthy organic foods contribute to a flawless and beautiful skin.
Stay infection free:
It is highly important to follow an apt skin care regime as skin is the largest barrier against infections. In order to fight the germs, strong and healthy skin is a must. Cracks in the skin can make a skin prone to infections and therefore, skin care should be a daily habit.
