What do you need to have a shiny body like celebrities, expensive products? No, you just need some time and a few tips that you can easily follow.
1) While taking bath, pour a cup of raw milk in your bucket full of water. Milk makes your skin tight, glowing, & lighter. It also adds a little moisture.
2) After taking bath don’t forget to scrub your heels to slough off the dead cells every once in a while & apply a nice quality body lotion/cream/oil on a regular basis.
I prefer a mixture of castor and olive oil
3) Tip to get shiny legs instantly- Add a little shimmer (bronze or golden if fair skin or tanned. Silver if dark) in spray bottle filled with baby oil. Shake well. Use it in on your legs or anywhere on your body to get that shine
4) Mix half glycerin & half water in a spray bottle. Shake well. Spray on body & rub it well.(don’t use on sensitive areas)
5) Use an oil like olive or baby oil to get the subtle shine. Mix a few drops (5-6) in your bucket of water. Use this water to take a bath.
Some more useful tips:
Use a liquid illuminator to get glowing skin instantly
I will always suggest you indulge yourself in skin care to get glowing and healthy skin, but if you are running out of time and need an instant result, then makeup can come handy. Just mix a tad bit of liquid illuminator with your foundation while applying make-up to get that natural, flawless glow on your face. If you have a yellow undertone or green veins than chose a golden liquid illuminator and if you have pinkish undertone or blue veins then opt for a pearly pink liquid illuminator or strobe cream.
Use a rosegold powder highlighter to give the illusion of a glowing skin
The market is flooded with powder highlighter these days and it is very difficult to make out which one will give a more natural finish. Rosegold is one such shade that suits most Indian skin tones, and hence, you must give it a try if you have oily skin and strobe creams don’t work for you. After finishing your make-up, take a fan brush, sweep it through your highlighter, and apply it on the bridge of your nose, high points of your cheeks, forehead, and chin.
Use aloe vera gel to get a naturally glowing face
You need to moisturize your face to get a glowing skin. Before applying any of your make up products, take a dollop of aloe vera gel and massage it all over your face until it gets completely absorbed by your skin. Then apply your BB cream for a natural finish while doing your daily make-up. If you have dry skin then no need to apply anything after that but if you have oily skin, then top it up with a coat of a mattifying compact for a more natural finish. It is a hassle-free and light-weight daily make-up look that will boost your confidence at work.
Always use a sunscreen
In today’s day and age, it has become imperative that you protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. The damage to the environment has us living in a world where the UV rays from the sun reach right to us and cause a whole host of skin issues, not to mention it causes the skin to turn dark quickly and cause pigmentation issues. Celebs make it a point to never skip their sunscreen when they are steeping out to keep the skin shielded and safe from any undue damage from the sun. So, always remember to slather on liberal amounts of sunscreen whenever you are going out, it does not matter if it is winter or overcast or you won’t be out in the sun for long.
Exfoliate your skin regularly
Many celebs swear by this. Celebrities seem to follow and believe in simple tips and tricks and techniques which have been known to all but maybe not much stock is put into them by people. Exfoliation is one such thing where the celebs love it and assign a lot of credit to it for maintaining their skin’s health and beauty. It helps keep the skin fresh by removing any dead skin cells and other pollutants and toxins from the skin’s surface. It helps impart a glow to the skin and keep it looking young and bright.
Ample rest and hydration
Carrying on the trend of simple but effective techniques, many celebs also give a lot of importance to the value of rest and hydration for the health of the skin. You need to be well-rested for your body to function properly. The skin is not exempt from this as it is pretty apparent when there is a lack of rest or hydration in the body and then the skin also looks dull and lifeless. Whereas, when those requirements are met the skin automatically looks and feel much better and fresher. Again, a simple tip but one that certainly is important and matters a lot for the overall and long term health and looks of the skin.
Following a healthy and skin-friendly diet
The stuff that you eat on a regular basis is actually really important and can affect your skin health significantly. This may not be immediately apparent but the foods that you put in your body has profound effects outwards on your skin too so do your research and include foods in your diet that are healthy and promote the health of the skin while cutting out foods that are harmful to it. Sugary stuff, processed foods, greasy food, etc are really harmful to the skin and make the skin dull and damaged. Eating foods which contain healthy and skin improving elements like antioxidants protect the skin and promote its health in a variety of ways. Prevention is also the keyword here as avoiding skin issues in the first place is a good idea for keeping it healthy and looking great and most celebs have a specific professional which help them curate their diet to keep themselves and their skin looking great and healthy.
