How to have the best skin ever​ ​

1.​ ​Invest in a simple but effective skin care regime

1.​ ​Invest in a simple but effective skin care regime
Dermatologists warn that the biggest beauty mistake people make is overuse of products. Using different ingredients can irritate the skin and some ingredients cancel out each other’s benefits. Get the basics right – a simple cleanser, sunscreen, moisturizer and retinol. Add on task-specific products if necessary.​ ​


2.​ ​Incorporate Retinol
Retinol unplug pores, clear up acnes, reduce fine lines, boost collagen production, fade out brown spots and improve skin texture. Opt for over-the-counter versions to be included into your anti-ageing regime starting from your 20s. Know that sensitive skin may experience dryness, flaking and redness. To counter, use retinol on alternate days and in moderate amounts. ​

3.​ ​Give it time to work
A week is often not long enough to see if a new product is working. Changing up beauty products frequently can be counterproductive. Finish the entire tube or bottle before deciding its efficacy. Unless the product causes skin to swell or turn red, in which case you should stop immediately.


4.​ ​Apply sunscreen
Did you realize that sunbathers tend to have dry and wrinkled skin? To combat fine lines as a result of the sun, reach for a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB. SPF 30 or higher is recommended and remember to apply sunscreen even on cloudy days. As a general rule, reapply every three hours if you’re outdoor. ​

Have you heard of do-it-yourself gel nails?


For nails that last longer and shine brighter, many have turned to gel nails that can only be achieved with the help of a trained manicurist. But with the recent launch of Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel TM collection that is said to be the only true two-step, DIY gel manicure, making a trip to the manicurist is a thing of the past.

After the basecoat, apply the Miracle Gel varnish for unparalleled shine that lasts up to 14 days. The smooth consistency of the varnish glides on easily. Two coats would suffice but for a saturated tone, add a third coat. To finish off, we recommend applying a top-coat that also has a gel consistency. ​

To remove, use nail polish remover as you would normally. Soak cotton pads and let them sit on nails for a minute before rubbing off varnish. Yes, it is that simple to DIY gel nails.
