Fair Skin: The personality catalyst:
Our fate chooses our relatives and this is universal truth. Many say that our skin appearance is inherited by our parental characteristics. A newborn is as fair as world's best beauty, what we lack is ability to nurture it further. As we grow up, our life style changes and so is our workload and mental pressure to achieve things. This inner hormonal change afflicts our outer body appearance. Many of us, especially those earning a lot, tend to laze and play with body by following disturbed and variable eating habits.
The first key personality charming factor is SMILE. The more we smile, the greater fresh we feel. If our work structure is sticky one i.e. all time seating, stand up from your seat at frequent intervals and spray water fountain on face, this helps keeping fresh all times. Since we witness harsh summer and changing weather, it is always advisable to take two baths instead of one, the second bath not only afresh us but also clears all dust particles, harmful germs from our body. Hence the second bath should be made more effective and caring as compared to the morning bath.
Our face is our glory. Try using as many natural resources as possible. Turmeric and Milk cream are blissful resources for our face. Use of Milk based soaps having minimum CFM is also smooth effect generator. Many FMCG companies offer Skin care milk cream based and skin dust cleaning products to care of skin from different seasons. Lime Talcum powder is another powerful way of keeping fresh and lively. Remember our today's preserved and cared skin is our old age beauty and hence take the best of care of skin.
