Cleanse, Moisture and Exfoliate
There are a few things to do at home to keep your skin healthy. “The first step is to wash your face two-three times each day and apply a good moisturiser. A simple cleansing routine in the morning and night keeps any germs, bacteria, and pollutants away from the skin. Products that are oilfree and have glycolic acid and salicylic acid aregood for the skin, especially acne-prone skin, and they clean the face from surface pollutants. Regularly exfoliate the skin to get rid of dead skin cells, dirt and pollution from pores. It is recommended to get a medical facial at a doctor’s clinic, like a HydraFacial, which is mild and is a rejuvenating mask that cleans the pores of the skin. Dietary habits are another important component. When adding fruits to the diet, one should go for seasonal and regional fruits that are easily available and affordable. To protect your skin from sun damage, apply sunscreen daily with an SPF range from 26-50. Use a cloth cover and mask to protect yourself from pollution and sun rays,” suggests Dr Gunjan Verma, Consultant Dermatologist, HCMCT Manipal Hospitals, Dwarka.
