The skin is the outer reflection of your inner health. Moist, clear, glowing, and most importantly nourished skin is a sign of good skin care routine and a balanced diet. While dry, pale, scaly or oily skin may result when the skin care and diet are not up to par.
When it comes to skin care goals, the word “nourished” seems to universally rank the highest. But our skin can often be one of the most neglected areas, despite it being the major contributor to the overall well being.
Aside from the itchy, dry skin that air conditioning can cause, our skin is constantly exposed to new and often harsh environments every now and then. This includes humidity, dry weather, rain — you name it.
Restoring your skin back to its firm, plump, hydrated, and nourished state may seem like mission impossible and require at least a truckload of skincare products and a thorough skin care routine.
Is flawless and nourished skin just too much to ask for? No, not really! Whether you have time for intensive skin care or not, pamper yourself by acing the basics to get a beautiful skin.
Itchy, flaky, dry skin probably means that your skin barrier is likely compromised. There is definitely nothing better than a steaming hot shower or bath after a long day to help relax. But unfortunately, although the heat may be helping you relax and momentarily forget about the miserable weather outside you couldn’t be doing anything worse for your skin.
Majorly, the heat itself is not the problem, rather it is the dramatic temperature change you experience once you get out of the shower. The heat opens up your pores and when faced with the temperature difference your body’s response is to close your pores, swiftly and rapidly. After going through this, your skin is probably inclined to end up dry.
You can strengthen your skin’s barrier by using moisturizers and cleansers that are formulated with botanical ingredients. They are the most essential components of the skin barrier, which can be stripped away by things like over-cleansing.
To give your skin the required moisture, try Oriental Botanics’ Australian Tea Tree Day / Night Face Gel. This is a fast-absorbing, non-greasy face gel enriched with natural oils and plant extracts for moisturizing and nourishing the acne-prone and oily skin. It is a non-comedogenic gel that quickly permeates the skin without clogging the pores and improves the condition of the stressed skin. It restores the skin’s lipid barrier without leaving behind greasy residues so that your skin feels soft and smooth without feeling greasy. Rich in nutrients that help in the regeneration of the skin cells, this face gel helps to repair the damaged skin. It helps to protect the skin from oxidative stress due to exposure to pollution.
Do make sure you always remove your makeup before hitting the bed at night. You should know that the skin needs to breathe overnight and makeup prevents that, as leaving it on overnight clogs the pores. This may result in the development of blemishes and/or blackheads. You can do it just by putting some olive oil on a cotton pad and gently massaging the oil onto your face to get rid of the makeup and dirt. You can also do it by using micellar water. This is a critical step towards getting a nourished skin.
Do not forget that exfoliation is indispensable and a secret step towards getting a nourished skin. At least once or twice a week, exfoliate your skin to remove the layers of dead skin. It will surely leave you with a more healthy glow and brighter skin. Using an antioxidant rich product will help in removing dirt from the skin surface and promote radiant skin. With exfoliation, you uncover the fresh new layer of cells beneath and when done regularly gentle exfoliation can even help prevent future breakouts.
Both sun and the skin are indispensable but their relationship might not be conducive for nourished skin due to the sun’s ability to drain the skin’s health. Always apply a sunscreen with SPF of at least 15 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Since a lifetime of sun exposure can cause wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, and other skin problems, you have to protect your skin from the sun. Make sure the label reads ‘noncomedogenic’ or ‘non-acnegenic’ so that the product does not tend to block pores and does not react on the skin.
You cannot afford to skip the sunscreen, whether it’s cloudy or cold outside (no excuses). If you’re heading to a beach, going out in the sun every day, or around reflective surfaces like snow or ice, lather your skin up with some more sunscreen with SPF of at least 30.
Try Oriental Botanics’ Aloe Vera, Green Tea & Cucumber Sunscreen SPF 50. It is a broad-spectrum sunscreen that combines sun protection with advanced skincare. The sunscreen agents work synergistically with plant actives to provide the highest level of protection from solar radiation. With SPF 50, it forms a protective umbrella on your skin, which is capable of blocking 98% of UVB rays that are responsible for sunburn, tanning, and patchy uneven complexion. With PA+++, it is highly effectual in shielding the skin from UVA rays that penetrate deep into the skin and trigger premature aging of the skin.
A good facial oil or facial balm is a great way to topically concentrate all the goodness your skin needs to stay firm, plump, and hydrated. Serums are a great way to amplify your beauty routine as they really aid to energize your skin. By using a good serum, visible results are typically seen within a week.

Treating yourself to a relaxing face mask is a great and soothing thing to do all year round. Particularly, it is a vital element to your skincare regime during the winter months. Face masks should be used regularly to attain healthy skin. To maximize your skin’s glow, opt for a hydrating face mask with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, and vitamin E.
We also recommend pairing your homemade face mask or a one made with natural ingredients with a good book or movie for ultimate relaxation.
One of the biggest secrets to healthy skin is eating correctly. That is why it is often said that ‘you are what you eat.’ Always keep a note of what you put on your plate. Eat fresh fruits, greens, sufficient protein, and vitamins. According to skin care experts, a diet rich in vitamin C and low in fats and sugar promotes radiant skin. Consider a low-sugar diet, which can keep insulin levels down, allowing skin cells to maintain a healthy balance. Avoid eating spicy and fermented foods, salt, citrus fruits, and fried food. Always include blander foods in your diets such as rice, oatmeal, and applesauce.
Of course, you need to exercise regularly for that shimmering face. Running, jogging, and yoga will give your body the necessary blood circulation, and also accelerate the cleansing process of your entire body. You will notice a glow on your face after working out. Even if you are racing against time, just take a brisk walk around the block.
Also, ensure to complete all the necessary skincare before and after a workout. Toner is helpful in minimizing the oil production before heading out for the workout. Exfoliate after exercising, and then apply a good moisturizer to the skin.
