Brighter times are here, and they are here to stay for a while. October marks the beginning of the Diwali season and this means you have holidays around the corner. You want to look and feel your best while the festivities are on. The only downside to this is the fact that holidays can tire you as well, especially when they are packed with family gatherings, parties, functions, and frequent outings. The constant planning, binging, drinking, and excitement take a toll on your body, and the stress shows on your skin.
Here are some quick health tips to keep your skin fresh and revitalised during the holidays:
1. Calm The Stress:
Diwali holidays are actually busy days and the fun is hectic. At times like these, try and find some time in your day to distress. If it takes some alone time by yourself, take it. Light exercise of the muscles, a few minutes of meditation, deep breathing, and brisk walks outdoors are a few ways of going about your distress mission.
2. Be Mindful Of The Colours You Wear:
When it comes to your skin, you are what you wear. Natural light around you is going to reflect off of what you wear. If your skin is inflamed because of acne or heat, wearing reds or pinks might make things worse.
3. Stay Hydrated:
While you’re running around organising or dancing away to Diwali glory, keep drinking water. As long as you are hydrated, your skin is fresh, energised, and uplifted.
4. Don’t Sleep With Your Makeup:
Makeup works its charms when it has to, but it’s the enemy if you go to bed without neatly removing it and cleansing your face.
5. Get Rid Of Old Makeup:
Modern day makeup is loaded with chemicals that can harm your skin if used frequently. As you would be using your make-up box very often during the Diwali holidays, make sure you use cosmetics and products that haven’t expired. Throw away old makeup and replace them with new stock.
6. Keep Your Lip Balm Close:
Your lips get affected first, when you are stressed and drained out. For tiring but enjoyable days like the holidays, use moisturisers and cold creams with SPF protection.
7. Choose The Right Diet:
The festive tradition of eating sweets, chocolates, and rich food made in milk and butter is unavoidable. However, if you manage to squeeze in some essentially nutrients and minerals into your diet, your skin will thank you. Relish a nice piece of cake but also finish up your green leafy veggies. Accompany your delicious edibles with some healthy foods like dry fruits, citrus fruits, raw fruit juices, chia seed puddings, green tea, and fibrous vegetables.
