The festive season has hit us right in the feels and while we make plans, decide on outfits, and apply for leaves, it is our skin that often goes for a toss during this time. With all the late-night parties, get togethers and binge eating, our body goes through a lot of physical exertion and that shows up on our skin too.
There is no point in wearing your gorgeous outfit this Diwali while your tired face cries for help. If you want your skin to look and feel best, you need to take care of it properly. Here are some easy peasy ways in which you can give your skin that much-needed festive glow and all the nourishment that it deserves:Make Sunscreen Your BFF
As Indian skin is rich in melanin, we are more prone to get tanned easily. However, sun exposure not just leads to tanning but also damages the skin barrier, provokes rashes and redness, and can cause skin-related issues as grave as cancer. This Diwali, go for a lightweight, oil-free sunscreen that will prevent the harmful Sun rays from damaging your skin and making you appear exhausted. You will look youthful all day if you pick the right non-greasy sunscreen that gets absorbed quickly and doesn’t leave a white cast.
Don’t Compromise on Your Beauty Sleep
While we all look forward to spending sleepless nights chit-chatting with our cousins and friends during Diwali, it is our skin that has to bear the brunt of it. Lack of sleep can make your skin look dull and tired. As you cannot say no to fun-filled nights with your dear ones, make sure you get enough sleep before and after the festive season so that you can make up for those thrilling nights. Even during Diwali, don’t leave any chance that you get to just indulge in a quick sleep or a power nap in the afternoon.
A Balanced Diet is Always a YES!
Be mindful of all the fried food, sugary sweets, and salted savories that you are going to devour this festive season. You need to cleanse your system of all those delicious but damaging food items that you are going to stuff your face with. Add more fresh-fruit juices and green leafy vegetables in your diet so that it detoxifies your body from within and your skin goes through the minimum side effects of the festivities. Just a bowl of salad or a serving of fruits can also do wonders for your skin. Make sure to incorporate as many nutrients in your diet as possible. Also, don’t forget to keep a tab on your water intake and keep yourself hydrated at all times.
Stick to a Skincare Routine
If you already follow a skincare routine and it has been working for you, stick to it and don’t let the business of Diwali come in the way of your skincare. In fact, try to add clay-based face packs and sleeping masks to restore the hydration of your skin while keeping it clean. If you do not have a skincare routine, it is important to make one, especially during the festival time. You don’t have to go all overboard with skincare by adding 10-15 steps to your regime. Just a simple cleanser, serum and moisturizer will do the job well. Don’t forget to mask your face in every 3-4 days to make your skin plumper, cleaner, and more glowing.
Focus on the Aftercare Too
While it is important to take care of your skin all the time, it is even more critical to do the aftercare once you are done with all the festivities of the day. Start by taking a warm bath followed by slathering lotion all over your body. It will nourish and hydrate your skin. Because of all the heavy and embellished Indian wear, rashes and redness across the body are common. You don’t have to let that stop you from enjoying the festivities to the fullest.
