2. इस मौसम में चेहरा बुझा-बुझा और बेजान लगता है इसलिए आपको त्वचा पर कोक बटर, मिल्क क्रीम, मक्खन, कोल्ड क्रीम, मॉइश्चराइजर आदि की मालिश करते रहना चाहिए। जिससे त्‍वचा अपनी नमी को न खोए। 

3. अधिक गर्म पानी से स्नान न करें। स्नान करते समय पानी में कुछ बूँदें बेबी ऑइल, ऑलिव ऑइल या बॉडी ऑइल भी डालें। इससे त्वचा मुलायम बनी रहेगी। इस मौसम में स्टीम बाथ लेना त्वचा के लिए काफी लाभदायक होता है। इससे त्वचा की शुष्कता दूर होती है।

4. रोज़ नहाने के पहले और बाद में भी अपने शरीर पर नारियल या सरसों के तेल की मालिश करें। तेल की मालिश करने के बाद 15-20 मिनट तक धूप सेंकना और भी फायदेमंद रहता है। इससे त्वचा मुलायम बनी रहती 

5. इस मौसम में हमारे होठों पर बहुत बुरा प्रभाव पडता है इसलिए होठों पर मलाई या फिर अच्‍छा लिप बाल्‍म लगाना चाहिए। आज कल बाजार में कई ऐसे बाल्‍म उपलब्‍ध हैं जिनमें ट्री ऑइल मिला होता है। ऐसा करने से होंठ नरम, मुलायम, चिकने एवं गुलाबी बने रहेंगे।

5 Amazing Foods To Get Glowing And Healthy Skin5 Amazing Foods To Get Glowing And Healthy Skin !!


You are what you eat. This saying is even more true when it comes to your skin. To get that gorgeous glow you have always dreamed of, you must keep your skin happy internally and externally.

1. Drink Water with Lemon

Of course we all know that water is necessary for life. But when you drink less than 8 glasses of water a day, your body can get dehydrated, resulting in drier and duller skin. For proper hydration, drink 10-12 glasses a day, so that you can keep your body’s water levels in check.

And, if you add lemon, you will get an extra vitamin C boost, thereby adding to your nutrition needs! Vitamin C is vital for synthesis of collagen, which is an important structural protein of the body. It also protects your skin from the sun. Its antioxidant effects are well-known in dermatology for protecting you from free radical damage.


2. Eat Avocados

Avocados are rich in vitamin E, an important antioxidant that helps to handle those oxidised fats that can age your cells. It can also reduce the damage that UVA and UVB rays cause on the skin. Furthermore, avocados contain healthy monounsaturated fats, thereby maintaining vital hydration for your epidermis.


Containing omega-9 fats, like oleic acid, these actives also help to regenerate damaged skin cells while reducing facial redness and irritation. Eating those amazing avocados or drinking avocado juice every day will bless your skin with a healthy glow.


3. Berry Berry Good

Berries give your skin quite a positive boost as well. In fact, the blueberries have been ranked as number 1 by the United States Department of Agriculture in antioxidant activity. Make sure you eat those blueberries and raspberries daily for that skin to get renewed.



You can mix them into a smoothie with some water and ice, or mix them with almond milk for a lovely protein and vitamin boost!




4. Go Nutty with walnuts 

Eat walnuts. This power food contains omega-3 fatty acids, an extremely important lipid that is essential to maintain the skin moisture and keep it supple. And, as an added benefit, the omega-3 fatty acids are great for your heart’s health and have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer.


A handful of nuts every day are perfect to get enormous benefits, that too without having to worry about the extra calories.




5. A Chocolate a Day

So, finally eating chocolate can also be a good thing! Chocolate contains flavonoid, which is a super active antioxidant. Not only will it help to slow down the ageing process, it may also be effective at counteracting some of the negative effects of the UV rays (although you will still need your sunscreen!).


However, remember, chocolate should be pure for the best results. Dark chocolate is the best kind to eat. One square a day is more than enough to get some antioxidant action!
