  SKIN CARE AT 30 - by Editor


You've probably spent most of your teenage and early twenties trying to get oil off your skin. But now that you've reached your thirties and your skin is fabulous, here's what you can do to ensure it stays the same another thirty years.


Hydrate

At thirty your face needs moisture and hydration throughout the day. If thick, expensive creams are not for you, here's how you can make your own facial hydrator at home. You will need:
Distilled water, available at grocery stores
3-4 drops of rose or chamomile essential oil

Mix the above ingredients and pour the mixture into a small spray bottle. Carry this along with you in your bag, and keep spraying your face throughout the day, especially if you will be spending time in an air-conditioned environment. Always shake the bottle before use. Your face will feel refreshed and re-hydrated.

If distilled water is not easily available where you live, try and make your own by collecting steam by boiling water and condensing the steam.

Ms. Shanta Bhandari, a 62-year-old woman with shiny, supple skin, looks years younger than she is. She swears by the importance of never pulling your skin when cleaning it, or when applying moisturizer or makeup.

All through my life, I have never cleaned my face with soap. When I was younger, face washes were not available, so I would apply cold cream to my face and neck as soon as I would wake up in the morning, leave it on while I took a shower, and GENTLY, VERY GENTLY, wipe it off with damp cotton before applying make-up.

Her skin, to this day, glows. She was however fortunate to have flawless skin, so the lack of deep cleansing and toning never resulted in pimples.


Nourish

Masks are undoubtedly excellent for your skin, as they provide much needed nourishment. Think about it. Your face is exposed to the elements throughout the day, and the only form of nourishment it gets is a smattering of moisturizer every now and again. Although we should be applying face masks regularly, how many of us do so Some of us apply facemasks once a month, while others do so no more than 2-3 times a year. Ideally we should apply a nourishing (as opposed to deep cleansing) facemask weekly, even daily if possible. Can you imagine the difference applying a face mask daily will make to your skin ten years down the line You don't need to invest hundreds of rupees to do this. Make your own facemasks by using ingredients from your kitchen shelf. Egg yolk, honey, bananas, day old yogurt� all are excellent for the skin, so just splat on whatever is handy. Don't stick to the same face mask all the time. Keep applying something different.


Diet

Diet too plays an important part in your skin's health. Always eat fresh foods, and opt for tanned food only in times of emergency. Your diet mantra should be:
Vegetables
Fruits
Nuts
Water


If you make sure you eat enough of these in abundance and lay off fried, greasy and junk food, you�re all set and on the right path to fabulous skin at 60, and, who knows, maybe seventy! Just don�t forget to write in and tell us how you did it!
