How to Be Fit & Fabulous
04 Jun 2014
The sedentary lifestyles we lead today don’t allow us to be physically active, but the importance of exercising cannot be undermined. Staying active doesn’t just keep you fit and healthy; it also reverses the process of ageing and promises younger-looking skin and hair. So read on for skin care tips
and hair care tips
that arise out of working out and have a positive influence on you.
- Sweat It Out!
What sweat does, nothing else can do. Confusing? Allow us to elucidate. When you sweat, you basically purge your body of toxins that clog pores. So the more you sweat, the more blemish-free your skin is. But once you sweat, it's important to wash off the toxin. Always shower after a workout to prevent bacterial or fungal infections that may occur from dirt clogging your pores. Our skin care tip is to wash your face twice a day and rinse with Dabur Gulabari rose water so your skin isn’t devoid of the natural oils. When you work out, your scalp also sweats, so it’s essential to wash your hair every alternate day using a mild herbal shampoo (pick a suitable one from the Vatika Premium Naturals shampoo range). And if you don’t work out at all, sauna once a week is a great idea.
- Get A Boost!
When you work out, it increases blood circulation and that boosts oxygen and nutrients to your skin and helps reduce the risk of numerous skin problems. More oxygen means overall improvement of skin health, which in turn means that your skin care regime can do with lesser skin care products. So a light and natural moisturizer like Dabur Gulabari moisturizing lotion will do.
- Tone Up!
The more toned you are, the healthier your skin is. Stronger, firmer muscles provide more support to your skin, minimize the appearance of cellulite and give it a more firm, elastic and plumper look.
- Beat Stress!
We know how stress can cause your skin and hair to go for a toss with breakouts, wrinkles, frown lines and hair fall. But exercise is a great way to dissipate stress, which means you should work out to beat hair and skin problems. Here’s another unexpected hair care tip - turn up your cardio activity because when you do that, your scalp doesn’t just get rid of toxins, it also secretes an oily conditioning substance that prevents your hair from drying out.
- Get A Glow!
Exercising gives you a rush and your skin a glow. Our skin care tip is to include workouts as a secret ingredient in your beauty regime for a younger and healthier complexion. However, if you are the no work-out types, use Fem Fairness Naturals range of no-ammonia herbal bleaches for an instant glow!
- Flip Over!
Inverted poses and backbends don’t just give your blood circulation a boost, it relieves the tension from your back and neck, and increases the amount of blood supplied to your scalp. What’s more, the upside-down brush after you semi-dry your hair also gives your tresses a lot of volume! Just follow this simple hair care tip to get rid of any frizz you might have with all the brushing – dab a tiny amount of Vatika Enriched Olive Hair Oil on your comb and brush your hair for the right amount of bounce and zero flyaways.
Last but not the least, drink a lot of water, and be blessed with a fabulous figure, skin and hair.
