People with frizzy hair face extreme pressure to make them straight or style them, up to the societal standard of pretty hair. The hair which follows the societal standard of straight, wavy, silky and soft hair is considered good hair, all the other and unique textures are not considered in the list of these standards. Black and Asian people’ hair is rough in nature with uneven textures which make them stand out. Hence, every hair types is beautiful regardless of the nature and texture.

Your Skin is your largest Organ, Do Some good for it

Skin care may be trendy these days, especially with beauty influencers on social media demoing everything from facial steaming to jade rolling, but giving your skin some love has both cosmetic and medical benefits. It refers to the basic care and maintenance of your largest organ—your skin! It protects you from external pathogens and, as you may know, holds all of your internal organs in place (phew). And, just as you brush your teeth on a regular basis, your skin requires some attention to keep it functioning properly.

Taking Care Of It Internally

The basic thing is Feeding the inside, which consists of four basic components:

1. Proper nutrition

Maintain a simple, fresh, and unprocessed approach. That is the best dietary advice somebody can give. The simpler the food, the less processing it undergoes, and the fresher it is, the better it is for you. Fresh fruits and vegetables contain a wide range of nutrients that are essential for good health. Allow yourself the occasional processed, high-fat meal when you’re out to eat or have to attend a luncheon or whatever – but make sure you eat more natural foods than not. Keep your diet varied – try not to eat the same thing every day – try a new vegetable that you haven’t tried before.

2. Enough rest and relaxation

Don’t work yourself to death – it’s not worth it. Make sure you get enough sleep. Did you know that a study in England found that if you don’t get 8 hours of sleep per night, your IQ (intelligence) drops? Consider this: do you get more work done when you are well rested? Can you concentrate more effectively if you’re not tired?  Spend some extra time resting and relaxing so that you can have more energy and concentration. If you get enough rest, you will find that you can complete more work in less time.

3. Adequate water intake

This is a critical issue. Most people (regardless of where they live) will consume approximately 3 litres of water per day, according to many medical texts. Our bodies only require water to function. If you do not drink at least this amount, your body will either not function properly (on some level) or will seek it elsewhere. This is known as dehydration. Dehydration manifests itself as dry lips, flaky skin, parched mouth, tongue cracks, and premature wrinkles. But please don’t go the other way. Water is necessary, but too much water means frequent trips to the toilet.

4. Sunlight and fresh air

Take a long, deep breath. The stuff of life is clean, fresh air. It should fill your lungs. A trip to the beach or the countryside may not sound enticing as part of a skincare regimen, but it is an important part of the “holistic” care required for overall health. By sunshine, It means sensible sunshine, by the way.

The skin cells require the proper nutrients for proper development and growth. You can help your skin by using high-quality skin care products, but you must also support it from within. Only in this manner can you expect good results from skin care. Recognize that what happens on the inside, both physically and emotionally, does indeed manifest on the outside. Because the ageing you see in your skin is biological rather than chronological, it can be delayed or even reversed with a holistic, natural approach that includes an optimal diet, lifestyle, and product selection. Even in skin care, the old adage holds true: garbage in, garbage out!

External Skincare

Also, there are three basic elements in external skin care as well:

1. Cleanse and condition the skin

2. Tone and hydrate

3. Moisturize and revitalise.

Cleansing the skin appears obvious, people think they know how to use soap – wrong (most likely)! This is one sure way to make your skin dry out faster. Most soaps remove the skin’s natural oils, alter the pH levels, and do nothing to remove dead skin layers, which can clog pores and cause blackheads. The skin produces oils and acids to help it function, protect it from moisture loss, and form a barrier. Please avoid using soap or detergent unless absolutely necessary.

Using a gentle exfoliator will remove dead skin cells, promoting better blood circulation and allowing your skin to breathe. But be wary of the term “scrub.”

The skin will then be hydrated and toned. After removing the dead skin layers with a specially formulated cleanser, it’s time to remove the residue, soothe the skin, and prepare the skin for a good feed of nutrients from the moisturizer.

Preparing the skin before applying moisturizer is analogous to preparing a surface to receive a new coat of paint. You wouldn’t just paint over a wall that hasn’t been cleaned and prepared for new paint, and the same is true for good skin care. You start by removing the old layer of paint, then apply a primer and finally the top coat. If you already use a moisturizer, you’re on the right track.

But have you should have taken a look at the ingredients? Are they natural, or are there numbers and words on the label that you don’t recognize? If this is the case, consider that your body absorbs these substances, and if they are not useful (preferably natural), the body must eliminate them. In some cases, the body is unable to eliminate these substances and must instead store them. This is a potential issue that could lead to health problems in the future. Pure essential oils or herbal extracts are typically beneficial ingredients to include in skin care products.
