Skincare routine is one of the most beautiful ways of self-care. Feeding your skin with a nourishing diet and healthy skin care will keep your skin rejuvenated.
According to Susie Wa, the founder and CEO of Tropic Skincare, “Practicing good skincare routine boosts not only your skin but also your mind”.
Tropic Skincare designed the ABC Essentials, the multi-award-winning natural range product for 2020. ABC Essentials consist of Smoothing cleanser, Vitamin toner and Skin Feast along with a face mask made from the natural extracts of green tea, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, etc. It is a quick fix to common skin problems! For sensitive skin conditions, you can opt the unscented oil-free editions.
Without further due, let’s take a quick look at the nutrition, skincare routine and few suggested serums to tackle the five common skin problems:
- Decrease your sugar intact and high glycemic food like red potatoes, breakfast cereals, white bread, cookies, chicken, instant pasta and (sorry girls!) coffee.
- Minimise your consumption of dairy products as these contain progesterone, a female hormone in pregnant cows that causes hormonal imbalance.
- Drink 2-3 litres of water every day and include veggies, quinoa, cashew, etc. in your diet to regulate your hormones.
- Hairstyling pomades and hair waxes can also cause acne on your skin.
- Wash your face twice or thrice a day.
– Cleanse your skin every morning with a cleanser from the ABC Essentials.
– Use the Tropic’s ‘Pure Lagoon’ serum which defends against acne-causing bacteria and helps prevent the skin from getting over dry.
– Apply Sun Day facial UV defence sunscreen to avoid sunburn and tan.
– Use the ABC Essentials to cleanse and moisturise your skin before going to bed.
II] Large Pores
Usually, large pores are recommended to be treated with the consultation of a dermatologist.
- However, you can avoid high glycemic, processed or fried food and dairy products.
- Increase the intake of protein and zinc-rich food like eggs, legumes, pulses, fish, meat, lentils, pumpkin or mustard seeds, etc.
- Use charcoal masks and steam your face regularly to help the pores open up.
- Don’t over scrub your skin.
- Cleanse your face twice or thrice a day.
– Use salicylic acid cleansers and clay-based lotions with retinol that can tighten your pores. Consult the dermatologist for the suitable product range.
Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin or nails caused by increased melanin (a primary determinant of skin colour).
- Add leafy vegetables like broccoli, zucchini, peas, etc. and fruits like orange, papaya, tomatoes and berries to your diet.
- Add shrimp, lobster, crabs and salmon that reduce inflammation.
- Drink 2-3 litres of water every day.
- Use Vitamin C cleanser in the morning and AHA facewash at night.
- Daily use of sunscreen is a mandate.
– Apply the Tropic’s Glow Berry Brightening Serum that boosts your vitamins and evens your skin tone along with a moisturiser before bed.
According to the National Eczema Association, ‘Eczema is a group of conditions that cause the skin to become itchy, inflamed or have a rash-like appearance that may appear red in lighter skin tones or grey, purple or ashen in darker skin tones.’ However, there is no cure for eczema but treatments.
- Cow milk, eggs, soy, fish, citrus fruits, gluten, etc. can trigger eczema.
- Observe what flares up the allergy. Nevertheless, these shouldn’t be eliminated without the consultation of a doctor as that can create vitamin deficiencies.
- Include omega-3 seafood like salmon, oyster, cod-liver-oil, etc. in your diet.
- If you’re vegetarian, you can include chia seeds, walnut, soybeans, brussels sprouts, etc. You can also add blueberries, broccoli, black tea and red wine in your diet.
- Bath in warm waters and if the itching continues, apply natural oils like coconut or sesame.
– Apply eczema treating body lotion in damp skin twice a day.
V] Premature Ageing
- Include whole food like tomatoes, lettuce, salmon, lentils and beans instead of sausages and syrups.
- Avoid processed meat like hot dogs, bacon, sugary pastries, doughnuts, chips and french fries, which increases your cholesterol levels and chances of heart disease.
- Moderate your alcohol levels to one drink per day.
- Drink 2-3 litres of water every day.
- Fasting after timely intervals.
– Use Non-foaming Cleanser
– Use Tropic’s Skin Dream age-defying cream along with ABC Essentials.
– Apply the Eye Dream overnight butter balm for reducing dark circles.
