Get­ting a head start

Hair - - Men’s Corner -

How can you pre­pare your skin to look fresh and ra­di­ant for the sea­son? The best way is to ac­quire clear and ready-set-go skin. Be­gin with a good cleanser. Give up the age-old habit of us­ing your reg­u­lar bar of soap to clean your face, and in­stead invest in a good face wash that suits your skin type and re­quire­ment. For in­stance, if your skin ap­pears dull at the end of the day, you can opt for Pond’s Men En­ergy Charge Face Wash. Mois­tur­i­sa­tion is a must, but the right way to do it and with the right prod­uct is im­por­tant. Brands such as Nivea and Neutrogena have an ar­ray of prod­ucts that of­fer mois­tur­is­ing ben­e­fits. A mois­turiser with sun­screen, such as the Neutrogena Men Triple Pro­tect Face Lo­tion with SPF 20, will give added pro­tec­tion to your skin. Ac­cord­ing to Dr Sad­hana Desh­mukh, Der­ma­tol­o­gist, For­ever Young, Mumbai, “Hy­drat­ing the skin is very im­por­tant by ap­ply­ing suit­able emol­lient-based mois­turis­ers. If there is se­vere dry­ness then one can con­sider booster fillers such as Restylane Vi­tal.” or other creams pre­scribed by der­ma­tol­o­gists.” Run­ning around all day and get­ting all the work done doesn’t only ex­haust your body but also tires your skin. “The common skin prob­lems faced dur­ing the busy fes­tive sea­son is in­crease in break­outs due to the ex­ces­sive in­take of junk food and de­vel­op­ment of un­der-eye dark cir­cles due to lack of sleep. Un­der-eye fillers such as Restylane are com­monly taken by men to re­duce the tired look around the eyes,” says Dr Bal­lani. Tak­ing care of your skin should not be an ‘only-fes­tive-time’ regime. Ac­cord­ing to Dr Bal­lani, “After the fes­tive sea­son, men should con­tinue fol­low­ing a good life­style that in­cludes ex­er­cise, ad­e­quate con­sump­tion of wa­ter, daily cleans­ing of the skin and use of sun­screens and mois­turis­ers as well as con­sult­ing a der­ma­tol­o­gist for re­cur­ring prob­lems.” Follow th­ese skin­care tips and let your skin be as happy as you dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tions.
