1. Consume Anti-Oxidants:

Make sure you consume a lot of anti-oxidants like vitamin c, q10, alpha-lipoic acid. Vitamin C is considered to be the most powerful anti-oxidant, which helps your skin in a lot of ways. Green tea is another popular antioxidant, which is believed to be as good as vitamin C.

2. Avoid Excess Exposure to Sun:

Skin experts believe that exposure to sun is the main cause of wrinkles and skin-aging. The best ways to avoid the effect of the sun is to wear a sunscreen or cover your face while heading outside.

3. Drink Lots of Water:

If your skin doesn’t get proper hydration it may lead to excessive wrinkles making your skin look old. In order to stay moist and elastic, your skin needs constant supply of water.

4. Get Adequate Sleep:

If you aren’t sleeping enough, your body starts producing excess cortisol – a hormone that breaks down skin cells. Get enough rest and you’ll produce more HGH (human growth hormone), which helps skin remain thick, more elastic and less likely to wrinkle.

5. Anti-Aging Creams Also Help:

While following all of the above, you can also resort to using anti-aging creams. In this fast-paced life, our skin starts to age prematurely and these anti-aging creams can really help.

Best Hair Care Tips and Routine for Men

Hair care is always a concern for men due to all the pollution these days. But you can still take good care and maintain your hair by following these simple tips and hair dos and don’ts:

  • Always buy good quality styling products. Cheap ones will either dry out your hair or grease it up. Search for good quality gel, pomade, mousse, and whichever other products which are best for your hair type. They may be a bit costly, but you only need to use a little to do a lot.
  • Massage your scalp with your fingertips or the pads of your fingers–not with your fingernails.
  • If you prefer keeping your hair short, you probably won’t need any styling treatments, as the oils from your scalp will be sufficient for your hair, and the short hair basically styles itself.
  • Always get regular haircuts and from your trusted barber. If you don’t want to get a haircut, just go for a trim.

 

 

To maintain your hair, you can follow these hair-care routine:

Shampoo: Choose a nice, soothing shampoo that suits your hair and your requirements – silky hair, anti-dandruff etc.

Tone: Gently massage your scalp as you shampoo. Use the tips of your fingertips for the same. Most of the oil is near the scalp. If you are not using a conditioner afterwards, gently dry your hair with a towel.

Condition: It is important to moisturize your hair. Conditioner is an essential hair product if your hair is dry.

Groom: Get the right grooming tools such as brush, comb, pick and a hair dryer.

Style: Find a comfortable style that you can easily maintain on your own daily and which looks good on you.
