Pamper Your Skin & Health At Home The Simple Way
When it comes to pampering your skin, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? You no doubt would have thought of a fancy spa where your every wish was catered to! Regarding our health, the first thing everyone will assume is that the only way to stay healthy is to hit the gym regularly. But, what if I told you that there was another way? A way you could keep yourself and your skin healthy right at home? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
With the way our lifestyles are geared these days, it’s no wonder that we constantly struggle to stay healthy. Our skin is constantly exposed to pollution, and not properly taken care of. Similarly, we often eat anything and everything, and reap the results of a poor diet with little or no exercise. One of the root causes of these problems is a poor diet.
Oily food is bad for your skin. It causes breakouts and leads to oily, irritable skin. Food that has been deep fried is one of the primary reasons people gain weight. We consume these high-fat foods on a regular basis along with plenty of carbonated drinks, and don’t realize the damages these are causing to our bodies.
An easy way to get rid of these skin problems at home is by using a face pack. Face packs are easy to make and are usually made using ingredients commonly found at home. There are a few potent essential oils that can also be mixed into these face packs to enhance their potency. Cedarwood oil is an essential oil that is known for its skin benefits. It is known to clear acne, reduce bloating, relieve stress, and much more.
Mix sandalwood powder, cedarwood oil, and half a teaspoon of turmeric along with some rose water. Apply on your skin and leave for up to 30 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
Jojoba oil is another potent oil to ensure your skin stays healthy. Simply apply it once before bedtime and wash it off first thing in the morning. This is more than enough to achieve cleaner, clearer skin. It is very light and gets absorbed easily. It also mimics the characteristics of sebum, and thus restricts your skin from producing excess oil.
Most people make an excuse when it comes to exercise. They are either too tired or too busy to take time out for it. However, even 30 minutes of exercise done regularly is enough for you to reap significant health benefits. Pick an activity you love doing and choose a time of day that’s comfortable for you. Most people prefer the mornings as they have enough time and enjoy the fresh air. Exercise can also benefit your skin as a healthy body leads to healthier skin.
In the end, your health is in your hands. The choices you make will define where you end up.
