Beauty Routines

Smooth, poreless and free from slackness and deep lines, a flawless skin has long been considered a mark of youth and beauty. But for some of us, achieving perfect beauty seems impossible. Fortunately, good skin is do-able. It simply takes work. With a bit of knowledge and a regular routine, your skin will look better and healthier - than you ever thought possible.

Simple beauty problems could be answered with dedicated home-regimen (beauty routines) to regain the lustre

This article discusses problems related to specific skin conditions.

Under-eye circles

This is a very common problem, which is caused by: heredity, lack of sleep, mental and physical fatigue, stress and improper diet.

-- If your cark circles are hereditary, you can hope to lighten them and camouflage them by the treatment given below; but they will not vanish.

-- Sleep is very essential to both health and beauty. Lack of sleep is immediately visible by the telltale dark circles around the eyes. Make sure you get your six-eight hours of beauty sleep. Some people need more and some people need less. Skin revives itself when you sleep. This means eight to 10 hours each night, not five hours one night and 11 hours the next.

-- If you are suffering from insomnia or chronic fatigue - something very common during menopause, consult your doctor and along with medical help, follow the daily treatment given below.

-- A nutritious diet also goes a long way in preventing dark circles. It is found that insufficient iron, which causes anaemia, is also responsible for dark circles. So, to get rid of those dark circles or prevent them, include the following in your diet.

  • Eat a green leafy vegetable daily.
  • If you are a non-vegetarian, include liver and egg - especially yolk in your diet.
  • Iron supplement in the form of tablets can also be taken.
  • Figs, sultanas are also good sources of iron.
  • Wheat contains more iron than rice; so include wheat at least once a day in your diet.
  • Drink plenty of liquids, six-ten glasses of water per day. Moisture is the key to complexion.

-- Stress, mental and physical, also increases dark circles. To relax, close your eyes. Squeeze the juice from grated cucumber; dip a cotton pad and place it on your eyes. Put on some soothing music, lie down and just' shut your mind or think of all the good things that you have experienced. Dark circles also increase if you have been watching too much TV or working on the computer for long.

Tips for treatment at home for dark circles under eyes

At bedtime, cleanse the skin around the eyes using a herbal cleanser by applying it on the areas and wiping it off very gently with moist cotton. Apply an almond based under eye cream around your eyes. Remove with moist cotton after 10 minutes. Cream should not be left on the skin around the eyes when you sleep, or for long periods. For day time you can try the following:

Make a powder of almond and store in an airtight bottle. In the morning, make a paste with milk and apply around the eyes. Keep it on for 10-15minutes and wash with water. Take care not to pull or drag the skin around the eyes. Some parlours do a special under eye treatment and you could try that too.

Specially formulated masks containing seaweeds are also available for the purpose. It has a revitalising effect when applied under the eyes. When it dries, wash off with water. This should be used once a day.

Fresh air and exercise

Oxygen is vital to your skin. It has been observed that if you are continuously breathing in stagnated stale air (for example, if you work for 12hours in an air-conditioned office) you are prone to dark circles. To offset this, take a half-an-hour daily brisk walk and do some deep breathing exercises. This will do you as much good as an expensive under eye treatment.
