Great skin is the first step
toward an excellent makeup. Skin plays a vital role in our life, how one
looks and feels directly correlates to ones skin.
Partaking in health and beauty
rituals indiscriminately - slowing time and gravity's tentacles
continues to lead us on a trail that has been philosophised throughout
history. Beauty comes from within, for the beauty that is without
resembles the beauty that is within.
The type of skin you have depends
on your genes, sex, age, environment, structure and regeneration. How
you treat your skin will always be evident in your face, hands and body.
Its never too early nor too late to begin looking after your skin.
There are four major types of skin.
Making the best choices for our
bodies, and ultimately our skin, is achieved through diet/ food,
exercise, regular professional treatments, personalized homecare, and a
healthy mental attitude. check out some related articles...
Skin cleansing is essential:
pollution, grease and grime cling to the skin, clogging pores; while the
body eliminates toxins through perspiration. If the cleansing process is
not thoroughly undertaken, the skin will look and feel sluggish, tired
and minor skin problems and irritations will transpire.
Cleansing should be part of the
daily routine: upon waking, and before returning to bed; before using
special treatments (masks); before and after makeup; and after sport (to
wash away perspiration and grime that builds up), all without disturbing
the skins natural acidity. The acid mantle (or pH) valiantly guards the
skin against bacterial invasion and other disturbances; warding off
moisture loss, leaving the skin smooth, fine and blemish free.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I do not
really have a dry skin but in winter the area around my mouth looks
white and flaky. And if I apply any cream I get a bout of pimples
which are really painful and really hard to control. Please help me
to solve my problem.
From your query it is understood that
the cream which you are using at present is not suiting you So why
do not try something else. Massage half a tsp of honey and half a
tsp of almond oil on the area and leave on for about half an hour
and wipe of with a wet cotton wool. This way you will not be
attracting dust and grime and making the area so oily as to cause
pimples and acne.
Q I am
20yrs old girl with a good figure and great legs. I am fair
complexioned, but my knees are darker from the rest of my body.
Moreover, the skin is quite rough, making it really an eyesore.
Could you please suggest an effective remedy for this..
There are special loofahs available in the
market which you can wear while bathing. Besides this, take two
lemon halves and a teaspoon of sugar and rough
gently on the knees until all the granules have melted. This will
not only remove any dead surface skin but
lighten and soften the skin as well. Try doing this daily before
bath, for a week for effective results.
