Tension shows in your face when your features look drawn and your expressions frozen and rather set. A good laugh is the best way to relax a tense face, but this exercise routine will help you to liberate and tone the key muscles quickly: try it when you are sitting in the bath , not at the traffic lights.
- Do apply plenty of moisturizer to all exposed areas of skin as regularly as possible, particularly the hands, neck and face. A good moisturizer slows down the rate of dehydration by acting as a barrier to water loss.
- Do use mild soaps with a pH level of 5 or less, particularly for your face. Harsh cleansers strip the skin of sebum, a naturally occurring protective oil, allowing moisture to escape more quickly.
- Do apply moisturizer all over your body after having a bath. The longer the bath and the hotter the temperature, the more dehydrated your skin is likely to be.
- Do wear clothes that are made from natural fibers, such as linen, cotton and silk, that allow your skin to “breathe”.
- Do eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, pulses, grains and fibre as the basis for a fine healthy diet , for a fine healthy diet that will improve your skin.
- Do apply a sunscreen of factor 15 or higher sunscreen to exposed parts of your body when you go out in the sun.
- Do drink at least six to eight glasses of water every day to help keep your skin hydrated.
- Don’t use foamy additives in your bath which, again, remove sebum from the skin. Use bath oils instead.
