Diwali festivities can take a toll on our skin! After all, the days of cleaning, binge eating oily foods and sweets, wearing make-up everyday for long hours, change in season, skipping skincare routines, and pollution will leave some impact! Now that the festive season is wrapping up, it’s time to take a break from everything and completely detox your skin.
HealthShots reached out to renowned dermatologist Dr Ajay Rana to find out effective ways. He says, “Diwali resonates with brightness, radiance, and happiness all around. It becomes important to engage in the maintenance of skin post-Diwali because our skin goes through a lot during this time of the festival season.” And that’s why post-Diwali, we need to take extra care of our skin and do the most to rewind the negative effects of Diwali on it.
So as soon as you finish celebrating the festival, follow these simple skincare tips suggested by Dr Rana. These will help you to minimize the effects on your skin and get your glow back:
Use essential oils regularly and do regular workout sessions. These can help to get glowing skin after the festival is over.
Our skin needs deep cleansing, scrubbing, and toning post Diwali festivities. Follow these skincare routines and include a few extra steps to your everyday regime.
Apply Vitamin E and essential oil rich creams and oils which protect the skin especially post Diwali. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water which is the best remedy for glowing skin.
Dr Rana says, “Post Diwali celebrations, wrap up your skincare routine with a smear of sunscreen. Use powerful UV protection which fights free radicals and keeps the skin ever healthy and glowing.”
Post Diwali celebrations, avoid using any kind of make-up for a few days and let the skin breathe.
“Apply a healthy scrub bath post the festivities. Use products that contain richness of shea, olive, and ximenia, which have rich oils and will hydrate the skin. It can help in exfoliating the dead skin cells and stimulating the blood-circulation. It makes the skin look fresh,” says Dr Rana.
Post Diwali, the skin becomes dry, use a hydrating sheet face mask and add moisture to the dull skin.
Use the steam technique to unclog the pores of the skin and prevent acne after Diwali. Applying steam helps with the deep cleansing of the skin.
Take a proper and nutritious diet and avoid any kind of junk food.
There’s no denying that Diwali leaves us worrying about our skin, but follow these tips to reduce the after-effects.
