  • Avoid excessive cleansing of your skin. Use soap or face wash not more than two to three times a day.
  • Plain water can be used to cleanse whenever required. Pat dry your skin after washing it.
  • Keeping your skin moisturized is the key to healthy looking skin. Pick a good quality moisturizer (Rejuva oil and Vitamin E) with SPF sun protection factor) for mornings.
  • Keep your lips happy and healthy with liberal application of lip balm.
  • Though it is very tempting to have a hot water shower, it should be best avoided. Hot water tends to dry your skin.
  • Use a body moisturizer within three minutes after your shower or bath to avoid dry skin.
  • Skin is the mirror of internal organs. Staying healthy is necessary to look healthy. Stay well hydrated and get adequate sleep.
  • Include Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet (especially beneficial in psoriasis), fruits, vegetables and nuts.
  • Exercise increases blood circulation to your skin and keep it healthy.
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol as Nicotine causes premature ageing and makes your skin appear dry and dull.
