After a day long work, you can observe not only your mind but even your skin experiencing that tiredness. For brain, you need a good sleep and relaxation and for your skin to get relaxed? Let’s find out what can be done;
AGE - OLD PROBLEM AREAS
The neck, eyes and hands are all dead giveaways of advancing years. Here's how to help beat the test of time –
The skin on the neck is more sensitive than face skin. Avoid spraying perfume on the neck, especially during the day as sunlight can activate it causing irritation. Always apply a moisturiser to the neck using gentle, upward strokes to avoid pulling.
We all have laughter lines but put off the deep wrinkles by applying a light eye cream or even better, eye gel, using gentle patting action all around the orbital bones. Do not screw up eyes to shield out the suns rays - invest in a good pair of sunglasses and wear them!
Skin on the hands can be quite delicate and dries out easily. Try to wear gloves for washing up and gardening and always use a handcream each time the hands get wet. If you cannot bare the gloves, use a barrier cream before washing up. A handcream which contains an added sun-screen will help too.
DID YOU KNOW
That skin is relatively thin at birth, increasing in thickness during childhood. In our early twenties the thickness of our skin gradually begins to decline and by the time a woman reaches her fifties the skin in thinning quite abruptly. The sun is the skins worst enemy and sun-worshippers almost always appear visibly older than their non-sun lover contemporaries.
Tea, coffee and alcohol all have a dehydrating effect on the skin. If you do indulge, always drink a large glass of water before bedtime to re-hydrate the skin.
Quick tips for Reviving your tired skin;
Drink lots of water to combat dullness and dehydration.
Do 30 minutes exercise several times a week. Even a brisk walk will make the skin glow with health.
Refrigerate eye gel before use.
Invest in a good concealer, use after a late night to brighten eye area. Pat on with finger gently a small amount at a time.
Wake skin up in the morning by applying a very cold, wet flannel for a few minutes.
