Q: How can one keep the skin radiant and glowing during the festivities?
A: Everyone wants to look their best during the festival season. A lot of effort goes in to make it possible. I firmly believe there are no short cuts to achieve a healthy and glowing skin. Regular intake of juices of deep coloured vegetables is a natural source of antioxidants which helps the skin to remain fresh and glowing in all seasons. The antioxidants help flush out the free radicals (toxins) from our body that cause ageing as well as diseases both of which we can do away with.
Q: What kind of diet and exercise routine should one follow to have the perfect skin?
A: When you exercise, it nourishes your skin by bringing more blood flow and oxygen to it. With any form of exercise, the heart rate increases, which then supplies your skin with more doses of oxygenated blood. This is the reason there is a post exercise glow on the skin. You can choose any form of exercise that you are comfortable doing and which you can accommodate comfortably in your work schedule.
Due attention should be paid to consume supplements of vitamins A, C and E, and minerals such as selenium and zinc. They have antioxidant properties, which repair and promote skin healing. Essential fatty acids also have a beneficial effect on skin as they help combat moisture loss that would otherwise cause dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles.
