Are you a working woman? Too busy to take out time for a healthy skin routine? Stressed about tanned skin and the blemishes? Well, these problems are common to all our hardworking, smart women managing their home and career at the same time.
Don’t worry, here are some tips and ideas that will help you maintain healthy skin and won’t be much time consuming as well. Moreover, the effects will not be just temporary but long lasting. Follow these tips and stay healthy and glowing!
Applying sunscreen is one of the essential parts of maintaining a healthy skincare routine. While you are too busy in preparing breakfast and doing other house chores before leaving home early in the morning, do not forget to take out those essential five minutes that will protect your skin from premature aging and tanning.
A thin layer of a suitable sunscreen is all you need to keep your complexion healthily maintained and to avoid being a victim of the harmful Ultraviolet rays that can damage your skin. Use a good sunscreen with a minimum 30+ SPF to avoid direct exposure to the sun’s rays.
Exposure to sunlight does not only cause aging but pigmentation (darkening of certain areas of skin) and freckles. Dermatologists nowadays advise sun blocks to not only those women who go out but also to women who stay at home and cook in front of stoves as they are also exposed to heat that can damage their skin. This shows how important sunblock is and you obviously do not want to look dull and wrinkly. So, ladies gear up, apply some sunscreen, and go to work carefree!
The next step to having a fresh looking healthy skin is moisturizing the skin at least twice a day. Dry skin leads to wrinkles and sagging of the skin. Therefore, moisturizing is a key step in keeping the skin nourished.
What you need to do is invest a little in a good moisturizer. Apply it at night before sleeping as well as in the morning, if you feel some dryness on your skin. You can also go for a moisturizer with sun protection as that will serve the dual purpose. Moisturizing the skin will retain its moisture keeping the skin soft and shiny.
Cleansing and Some Time-Saving Remedies
Another simple step to keep your skin healthy is to cleanse it on a daily basis. Cleanse your skin with a suitable cleanser to remove all the dirt and dead cells from your skin. Cleansing rejuvenates the skin; it gives the skin a new life.
Moreover, as the life of a working woman is tough and it is not always possible to spend hours and hours in the salon, therefore, you can follow these tips to keep the skin glowing and bright.
- Apply a thin layer of pure beehive honey on your face, leave it on while you do some other chores. Wash to achieve a glowing complexion.
