New Delhi, October 1, 2017 : Every group has that one friend who has perfect skin. They glow and shine, and radiate like crystals. And when asked what they do for this flawless visage, they giggle and proudly announce they do not have a skin care regime and don’t do anything.

Instant heartbreak.

Well, you must certainly not lose heart. Yes, these are people with genetically blessed skin, but it is almost impossible to maintain that glow in the absence of any skin care effort.

So, how to have glowing skin?

There isn’t a magic spell to achieve healthy, clear and glowing skin, but there are a few basic changes you can make to get enviable results.

We have devised a practical and easy to follow skin care regime for you. Here, we have rounded up 10 night time beauty habits that can possibly make you “that” friend.

  1. Give Your Face Some Steam

Nobody has the time to get facials done every month, but we give you a shortcut to looking like you do! The aim is to expose your skin to steam just long enough to open and de-gunk your pores. We’d suggest taking a hot shower before washing your face, or keeping a warm soaked hand towel on your face and patting gently. This will not only open pores, but loosen dirt, oil, or bacteria stuck on your face that can then be taken care with water.

  1. Remove All Makeup

Removing all makeup is a staple to all skin care regimes. (And we don’t mean with wet wipes)  Splash your face with sufficient water. Your lipstick, eye-liner, mascara, and foundation; everything has to go. A naked face opens and cleans pores and removes any gunk from your eyes.

  1. Exfoliate To Get Rid Of The Dead Skin

It not only removes the layer of dead skin, but also makes your skin radiant and youthful. However, exfoliation can do more harm than good when done in excess- it can trigger rashes, irritation and breakouts. Try doing it twice a week. And if you have sensitive skin, then even once is good!

You can also use home-made scrubs like oatmeal, besan or coffee. These scrubs are natural and can be altered as per your own preferences

  1. Tone Your Skin

Pollution. Humidity. Weather changes. Acne. And what not. Our skin has to face a lot of obstacles throughout the day.

Toning helps maintain the right pH balance for a healthy skin. It helps rejuvenate the dead cells by nourishing and tightening the skin from deep within. It also removes excess oil thus, fighting acne-problems and making a protective layer over our skin. All-around care, what else does we need?

  1. Moisturize

You must moisturize. It will keep your skin well-fed, preventing it from ageing as well as getting pimples. Sleeping without it is a strict no!

If you have dry skin, invest in products with natural oils like grape seed and for dry skin, you should use oil-free and light-weight moisturizers.

  1. Eye Cream

Invest in a good moisturizer and a night cream for your nightly skin care routine,  irrespective of your age. It will keep your skin hydrated and plump while minimizing the appeared of dark circles and wrinkles.

We suggest using lightweight creams with caffeine, peptides and oxidants.

  1. When All Is Said And Done, Sleep

And sleep for some good 7-8 hours. Cutting down on sleeping hours can speed up ageing process. Snooze hours form an integral part of skin care; there is a reason it is called beauty sleep, after all. During sleeping-hours, your skin is devoid of any external application or attacks by the harmful sun rays. Hence, sound sleep allows your cells to regenerate, which happens quicker at night than in the day-time.

  1. Use Multiple Pillows

One for your left side, another for your right. One to rest your head on, and the other to hug tightly. No, we’re kidding. You can use as many pillow as you like, but our suggestion is to sleep with your head on an elevated platform than the rest of the body to prevent puffiness.

  1. Vaseline Is A Staple for Skin care

Don’t forget your lips, hands and feet. Apply generous amounts of Vaseline on your lips and feet to keep them soft and hand cream over your hands. Vaseline plumps and moisturizes the lips, keeping them soft and red.

  1. Secure The Air Moisture Using A Humidifier

Make complete use of technology and bring humidifiers home for your skin care regime. Humidifiers infuse the air in your bedroom with moisture. This in turn helps keep your skin hydrated. Outcome: Goodbye dry, itchy and cracked skin!

Here Comes The New Acne Vaccine

Future studies will address these factors and focus on engineering a non-toxic chemical or targeted vaccine formulation for its human application, the researchers said

Do you often suffer from acne? Take heart, a potential vaccine that targets the bacterial toxins may soon be on the anvil, say researchers.

Instead of invading pathogens, the new vaccine would be the first to target bacteria already in human skin.

The researchers demonstrated that antibodies to a toxin secreted from bacteria in acne vulgaris can reduce inflammation in human acne lesions.

“Once validated by a large-scale clinical trial, the potential impact of our findings is huge for the hundreds of millions of individuals suffering from acne vulgaris,” explained lead investigator Chun-Ming Huang, from the University of California-San Diego, US.

An acne vaccination could circumvent potential adverse effects of topical or systemic retinoids and antibiotics, the current treatment options.

They found that Christie-Atkins-Munch-Peterson (CAMP) factor — a toxin secreted from the Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria, can induce inflammatory responses.

In the study, published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, the team explored in mice and ex vivo in human skin cells whether they could inhibit inflammation by employing antibodies to neutralise this virulence factor.

Their findings show that the application of monoclonal antibodies to CAMP 2 factor did indeed decrease the inflammatory response.

“While addressing an unmet medical need and providing an appealing approach, acne immunotherapies that target P. acnes-derived factors have to be cautiously designed to avoid unwanted disturbance of the microbiome that guarantees skin homeostasis,” said Emmanuel Contassot, from the University of Zurich in Switzerland.

Future studies will address these factors and focus on engineering a non-toxic chemical or targeted vaccine formulation for its human application, the researchers said. (IANS)
