All You Need To Do To Get That Flawless Skin!

Haven't we all admired the flawless skin of models walking down the ramp or even that girl in the neighbourhood? There is hardly any speck or a mark on their faces, and what do we have? A face full of marks, like the craters on the moon! Be it men, women or even children, one of the things that bother us the most is our face. Men hide those freckles by growing beards and moustaches, we women tend to hide our marks under a bed of makeup and concealers. Oh those expensive foundations and concealers, we spend a whole lot on them! But what if I tell you that you don't need to grow beards anymore, nor do you require spending a bomb on cosmetics? Yes, scroll down for some very easy and commonly used face packs to get your face party ready and bid adieu to those acne marks and freckles.

But first, let's have a quick look on the reasons for unhealthy skin.

Causes of unhealthy skin

Unhealthy eating habits

Doctors across the world advise us to limit our junk eating habits and switch to healthy and organic habits. Obesity is not the only reason; our junk eating and unnecessary munching put a huge impact on our skin as well. With an increase in outside food consumption, our face tends to get duller and lose the natural glow it used to show.

Water

My mum keeps reminding me every few hours to drink a glass of water, and I'm sure you also must have been asked to drink plenty of water by someone in your family. Water helps in keeping the body hydrated and flushes out the toxins. It is a given that plenty of water in the body, means a prettier you. So due to lack of water, not only does the toxins build up in our body, our face also feels the impact through dryness and lack of moisture.

Stress

There is not even a single body part that is excluded from the negative effects of high-level stress. Increased stress affects our skin by making it oily and leading to acne and pimples. Moreover, the skin feels dehydrated and loses the ability to repair itself. So, for the sake of your beauty, crush your stress right now!

Partying

Well, a party here and there helps to reduce the stress. But with more parties to attend, your intake of alcohol and cigarettes also ride, leading to dryness and premature ageing.

Makeup and cosmetics

Just to get that perfect Kareena Kapoor look, we tend to put a lot of makeup on our faces and even forget to remove it before sleeping. Not removing makeup leads to dryness and acne. Using the wrong or unsuitable skincare product can also leave you high and dry, with a dull face.
