1. Limit Your Exposure To Sun
Sun has a way to drive us nuts. As always, with sunshine, there is little rain sometime. We’re baffled because it darkens your skin tone and lightens your hair, although many wish it were the other way around.
Hair follicles get damaged from sun exposure and melanin present in skin gets destroyed. Try to stay indoors or cover your skin and hair when it becomes necessary to step out.

Laugh, meditate and take deep breathes a few minutes everyday. There are hundreds of well known ways that supposedly minimize stress and anxiety.
3. Cleanse Your Body
A buildup of toxins in the body due to polluted air, water and food often causes damage to the body. Detoxification by way of herbal cleanser is always recommended for the body to be able to focus on energy production and eliminating toxins.

4. Make A Habit to Sleep Enough And Exercise Daily
Slumber is nature’s most powerful beauty treatment. Optimal hours of sleep at night leave you look luminous. Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, thus adding that extra sheen to your looks.
Start getting more hours of Zzz’s. Spend more time in bed and wake up to these benefits. Make sure you do some stretching before leaving the bed. Regular exercising has benefits manifolds. Not just it keeps your weight under check but also helps in staying active and in shape.

Yes, this is very important for maintaining your skin and hair. Your fingernails can carry dirt and germs from other parts of your body or surroundings to your scalp and skin.
This might lead to irritation, scarring and dead spots on your facial skin. Touching, itching rubbing and picking is a part of poor hygiene.
