Beauty expert and founder-di­rec­tor, ALPS Beauty Group “Diet plays a cru­cial role in mak­ing your skin look health­ier and younger. I in­clude oats, flaxseeds and chia seeds in my diet, along with lots of pro­tein. Avoid fried food. Re­mem­ber—don’t starve your­self, rather eat right!” Rec­om­mended rou­tine: Stick to a reg­u­lar cleans­ing-ton­ing-mois­tur­is­ing (CTM) rou­tine. Cleanse your face with a deep-pore, soap-free, non-foam­ing cleanser, fol­lowed by ex­fo­li­at­ing to cleanse your pores of grime and dead cells. You can buy a good ex­fo­lia­tor from the mar­ket or sim­ply make one your­self—mix equal quan­ti­ties of kaolin pow­der, san­dal­wood pow­der and a few pinches of turmeric and poppy seeds. Di­lute this mix­ture with curd (for oily skin) or milk (for dry skin) and mas­sage it on to your face. Pro­ceed to tone your face with a good toner to close your pores and mois­turise with a gel or wa­ter-based mois­turiser. Fi­nally, use a good sun­screen of SPF 30+ with UVA, UVB fil­ters and PA+++. Don’t for­get to use a good make-up re­mover and night cream at the end of the day.
