I hope you all are doing well!
A few days ago, I visited VLCC in my city, Lucknow, for a fun and informative session about skin care and beauty. And I learnt so many things. I even did a live chat on my Instagram and a lot of you had a lot of questions to ask and all of them will be answered today in this post!
The first and most important thing to do for a healthier skin and body is following a healthy lifestyle. I know it seems impossible for our generation to sleep on time, wake up early and eat healthy food but trust me, your body will thank you once you do this. If you follow a healthy lifestyle, you might not even have to go out of your way to take care of your skin and body, it will do it itself. Here are a few other things you can do to take care of your body –
We spend a lot of time outside in the dirt and dust. And while it is very hard to completely avoid the dust and dirt, you could at least wash your face every time you come back home. And once you have washed it properly with a face wash that suits your skin type, don’t forget to moisturize. Moisturizing is a very important step that we often forget.
If you have some other skin problems like acne, ageing, spots, scars, etc, it is always better to consult an expert rather than trying different products to check which one works well for you.
One very interesting facial that they informed me about was ‘The Vampire facial’. I was so fascinated by this. It is basically for dull and swollen skin. In this, they take platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own self and apply it to your face with a derma roller.
They also have a lot of services for under eye treatment like Visionergy, which treats the wrinkles and lines around your eye contour area.
Our hair goes through a lot of problems as well like roughness, split ends, damage, etc, and just like our skin needs moisturizing, so does out hair! We can moisturize our hair by massaging with oil once a week.
Another very important thing they told us was hair care for boys. Guys don’t wash their hair as often as they should be which damages their hair a lot. Washing your hair twice or thrice a week is very important.
Also when you apply conditioner after washing your hair, it should only be applied to the ends of your hair. If you apply conditioner to the roots, it will make your scalp oily.
MYTHS about HAIR AND SKIN CARE
While there are a lot of tips for proper care of your hair and skin, there are also a lot of myths out there. And VLCC helped me bust them.
- Removing black heads will not lead to more black heads.
- If you are indoor, you might still get tan.
- Breakage of grey hair does not leads to more grey hair.
- Hair color does not damages your hair.
Q: Waxing VS shaving?
A: The experts told us that waxing is much better than shaving. Shaving leaves a lot of in grown hair which may lead to infections in some cases.
VLCC also offers laser treatments for your body hair.
Q: What brands are best for skin care and hair care?
A: Everybody has a different skin and hair type. We need to find a product that best suits our skin.
We often are attracted towards foreign brands but the truth is that some of those products may not work for you at all. Brands create products according to the climate and conditions of a specific place. And we need to use products made for the climate in our country.
Q: What to do if sun screens do not protect our skin well. Is there any other precaution to take?
A: There is actually a particular time to apply sunscreen. You should apply your sunscreen at 9 A.M first. Then reapply it at 12 noon and then again apply it at 3 P.M.
This way your skin will get maximum protection against the sun.
