The summer season is setting in and it’s time to keep a special check on your skin. Keep away from smoking and stress to maintain the glow on your face, suggests an expert.

Sirisha Singh of the Skin Center, a skin treatment consultancy, has shared six common sins which have the potential to spoil one’s skin. Here’s a dekko:

* Smoking: Nicotine intake not only damages, but has the potential to kill the skin. It causes thinning of blood vessels in the skin. Therefore, lesser amount of oxygen is available to the skin, and that affects the ability of the skin to renew and regenerate. Over a period of time, this hastens ageing of the skin. Many heavy smokers also suffer from “fag lines” which are lines that radiate out from the outer edge of the lips.

* Unprotected sun exposure: This comes a close second to nicotine in terms of skin sins. Cumulative exposure to ultra violet rays over the years, adds up to significant skin damage and adds years to the skin. The UV light causes pigmentation of the skin, damages the collagen (the elastic tissue) of the skin and in extreme cases, also has the potential to cause skin cancers.

* Wearing make-up to bed: During the night, the skin rejuvenates itself. The temperature of the skin goes up a notch and the pores open up. Hence, it is vital to cleanse the skin at night to unplug the pores and use night creams or vitamin rich creams overnight as they penetrate better at night.

* Stress: Stress causes damage to almost all organs of the body, the skin being no exception. During stress, our body releases a hormone called cortisol. This reduces the blood supply to the skin and over a period of time, the skin may appear dull, sallow and may also develop acne.

* Skipping sleep: The term “beauty sleep” is not a myth. It is based on scientific facts. During sleep, our body releases growth hormone. This hormone helps the skin to heal itself and adds a healthy glow.

* Unhealthy eating: During summers, the heat and UV rays cause significant oxidative damage to skin and other organs. Brightly coloured fruits and vegetables are rich in anti-oxidants, which help in combating this damage. If our intake of anti-oxidants in the diet is inadequate, there is extensive damage to cells which is manifested as accelerated ageing. (Bollywood Country)

The skin repairs itself from the day’s stress during the night, so it is necessary to give your skin equal attention before you go to bed so that it looks rejuvenated the next morning.

Aanchal Budhiraja, Beauty Trainer at Innisfree India and Anuj Mishra, Education Manager at Kiehl’s India, have shared the night-time beauty regime to follow:

* Double cleansing: This is highly recommended. Double cleansing consists of first cleaning with a cleanser such as cleansing oil or cleansing cream. This cleanses oil-based impurities such as make-up and pollutants. Also, follow it up with a cleansing foam to remove any left over impurities before sleeping. The motive here is deep cleansing while being gentle on the skin.

* Exfoliate: Exfoliate with scrub or gommage peel or a clay mask, depending on the skin type, 2 to 3 times to get rid of dead cells. Exfoliating your skin can really help in rejuvenating your skin. Exfoliate skin at least twice a week using the appropriate products according to the skin type.

* Toning: Use a gentle hydrating toner according to skin type to refine pores and restore PH level. Always use a good toner as it is a very important step and prepares your skin for the next step of your regimen by minimising pores to the normal size.

* Sheet mask: At night, applying sheet mask on cleansed skin can be very relaxing and takes away the stress from your skin. They provide essential nutrients deep within the skin.

* Treatment and repair: At night your skin is naturally regenerating, repairing and restoring itself. Rejuvenation is at its peak as cell turnover increases at night. Use of repairing serum such as salicylic acid for trouble or Vitamin C for brightening and reducing pigmentation and peptides with AHA salt, for peeling and increasing firmness should be applied at night as it is best to avoid these ingredients in sun rays and they work best during night time.
