Netflix and Chill – two words which sum up our life, especially one we’ve had over the last few months. With limited access to the outside world, we’re all living at the disposal of our laptop and mobile screens. According to expert dermatologists, these relentless scrolls can have unwanted consequences.
The blue light emitted from the screens cause DNA damage and inflammation, eventually leading to skin ageing. But, we’re living in a new normal and use of these screens are inevitable.
So, how can we protect our skin from it?
Google facial cleansers, face serum, face scrubs, and skin vitamin nourishment. Blink your eyes, and you’ll be overwhelmed with options to choose from. Skin dryness and dullness can be overcome with some elementary lifestyle changes, healthy food habits and using just about the right facial cleansers.
And if you’re looking for some practical solutions, here’s what we suggest:
Some Lifestyle Changes
- Switch off your screens 30 minutes before bedtime
Deadlines are approaching and you’re freaking out. Glued to your screen, you don’t even realize it’s past your bedtime and the blue light is obstructing your skin repair. Switch it off and allow your skin to breathe with some soothing facial cleansers like Rejuvenating Grapefruit Revitalising Face Cleansing Oil. Its sunflower oil reduces signs of ageing and brightens the complexion. Practice Sarvangasana Yoga
Also known as the shoulder stand, it’s considered as one of the most effective yoga asanas for achieving glowing skin. This pose enhances your skin texture by promoting blood circulation towards your face. Just practice this 2-4 times a day, diligently incorporate it into your schedule and observe the difference.
- DIY Spa
Skincare and rejuvenation are incomplete without an indulgent spa routine with sulphate and paraben-free facial cleansers. Store your favourite spa essentials in your skincare closet, especially this weekly skin detox duo (consisting of a macadamia infused soothing face cleansing gel and a grapefruit infused 3 in 1 face mask scrub and cleanser) and pamper your face to glory.
Creating a spa-like experience at home is easy. Here’s how!
5 Minutes Routine
- Get up and drink water
You don’t need to always wait for weekends to treat your skin dryness and dullness. Get up from your chair at regular intervals and get a glass of hydration for your skin, making it healthier and even-toned.
- Face Massage
Massage is the ultimate form of rejuvenation and self-care, especially with the Macadamia Reviving Anti-Ageing Face Serum. Its Mafane flower extract smoothens the skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, while its relaxing fragrance calms your senses.
Just dot and dab the face serum on your face, massage in upward and outward strokes and feel the magic oozing in. All it takes is 5 minutes to make your skin feel good and look joyful.
- Facial Yoga
Facial yoga does to your face, what yoga does to your body. It tones, eases and promotes a natural boost to the skin, while simultaneously retuning the face muscles.
Facial Yoga exercises like kiss and smile, puffing your cheeks, chanting ‘Om’ with a smile, fish face, lifting eyebrows cultivates inner beauty and true skin health. We suggest practising these exercises with the Macadamia Relaxing Hand Poured Body Massage Candle to create a multi-sensory experience, soothing the mind, body and soul.
Skin Vitamins and Nourishment – D, C, E and K
10 minutes of early morning sun and citrus fruits like an orange, are rich sources of Vitamin D and C respectively. These skin vitamins are essential for an even tone skin and fending off the signs of ageing. Vitamin K is essential for the skins healing process, for which greens like spinach, lettuce, and kale do the magic.
If you particularly have an issue with skin dryness, Vitamin E is an antioxidant which helps. Munch on nuts – almonds, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds or go for facial cleansers like the Grapefruit Revitalising Face Mask- Scrub. They’re all rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C, giving you a luminous glow.
Skincare is an act of balancing. It’s a holistic and mindful approach with the right foods, exercise and facial cleansers. Because, when you’re healthy on the inside, your face will exhibit that sense of contentment with the outer radiance.
That’s the real secret to beauty!
