Tips for healthy skin

Don't have time for intensive skin care? You can still pamper yourself by acing the basics. Good skin care and healthy lifestyle choices can help delay the natural aging process and prevent various skin problems. Get started with these five no-nonsense tips. 1. Protect yourself from the sun One of the most important ways to take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems — as well as increase the risk of skin cancer. For the most complete sun protection: Use sunscreen. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Apply sunscreen generously, and reapply every two hours — or more often if you're swimming or perspiring. Seek shade. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun's rays are strongest. Wear protective clothing. Cover your skin with tightly woven long-sleeved shirts, long pants and wide-brimmed hats. Also consider laundry additives, which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet protection for a certain number of washings, or special sun-protective clothing — which is specifically designed to block ultraviolet rays. 2. Don't smoke Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles. Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of skin, which decreases blood flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin — the fibers that give your skin strength and elasticity. In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting your eyes to keep out smoke — can contribute to wrinkles. If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit. Ask your doctor for tips or treatments to help you stop smoking.3. Treat your skin gently Daily cleansing and shaving can take a toll on your skin. To keep it gentle: Limit bath time. Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time, and use warm — rather than hot — water. Avoid strong soaps. Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers. Shave carefully. To protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it. Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin. Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturizer that contains SPF. 4. Eat a healthy diet A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. The association between diet and acne isn't clear — but some research suggests that a diet rich in vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. 5. Manage stress Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, scale back your to-do list and make time to do the things you enjoy. The results might be more dramatic than you expect.

SKIN MISTAKES IN YOUR 20s Don't put off applying that sunscreen.It not only prevents your skin from getting tanned, but will also prevent those wrinkles and fine lines, which you think you're too young for. Make it a habit to reapply it every two to three hours for maximum protection. SKIN MISTAKES IN YOUR 30s Not sticking to a skincare regime in your 30s will cost you dearly in your 40s. Gone are the days when you could get away with not cleansing, toning and moisturing daily . As your skin ages, you need to give more attention to it. So, make sure that you not only use products that are age-appropriate, but also follow a skin care routine religiously . Your skin will thank you for it later. Don't make the mistake of sleeping with your makeup on. This cardinal beauty sin can wreak havoc on your skin by clogging pores and causing pimples. So, no matter how tired you are, always remove your makeup before you go to bed. SKIN MISTAKES IN YOUR 40s You will notice that your skin gets extremely dry in your 40s, hence, it is essential that you keep it well hydrated. The dryness can be attributed to hormonal changes as your body nears menopause. Hence, use a milk cleanser and moisturiser that deeply nourishes your skin. During your 40s, many women get stressed about wrinkles, fine lines and spots and opt for different skin products, not realising that that could end up causing more problems. When you use too many beauty products, your skin may revolt and cause inflammation or redness. Stick to certain products that suit your skin.

Social networking giant Facebook is rebranding its Internet.org programme, which was in the midst of a controversy over alleged violation of net neutrality, to 'Free Basics'. Armed with more services and stronger security measures, the rebranding will help Facebook distinguish the free basic internet offering from the large number of activities the US-based company is pursuing to help get new users online across the globe. The announcement comes days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to visit Facebook's campus in California on September 27. "We're making this change to better distinguish the Internet.org initiative from the programmes and services that Facebook provides, including Free Basics. Anyone currently using the app will be able to continue using the Android app though it will now be called Free Basics by Facebook in Google Play. And the mobile Web version, which will redirect from the previous URL, can be accessed at Freebasics.com," Internet.org Vice-President Chris Daniels.

If you are one of those battling dry hair but don't like to use hair conditioners that weigh your hair down, then serums are your best bet. Here are a few benefits of using hair serum: -

Adds lustre to dull hair instantly: Apart from removing tangles, serums instantly add lustre to boring and dull hair.

Makes untamable hair manageable: It soothes out the frizz and makes hair soft and manageable within no time.

Protects hair from damage: Some hair serums assure you of UV protection. Exposing hair to the sun constantly will damage your hair. So, such hair serums can protect your hair from damage caused by the sun.

Helps in styling your hair: If you find it difficult to comb or detangle your hair before styling it, take a coin-size amount of hair serum and apply it on your locks.

Helps reduce hair loss: A good hair serum contains vitamin E that makes your hair healthy and prevents hair loss.
