Reliving a quote "At age 20 you have the skin you inherited, at 40 the skin you deserve and at 60 the skin you earned." Even if you were born with the perfect skin, but your lifestyle decides what your skin deserve. Most of the skin enemies are under your control:
1. SUGARY FOODS
Fancy for a healthy, glowing, radiant skin, but we can’t expect skincare to take care of everything regardless of our lifestyles. What we eat, plays a role too.
Consuming excessive amounts of sugar, carbohydrates (i.e. white rice, bread and pasta) makes our blood sugar levels increase, which in turn produces a chemical reaction in our bodies known as ‘glycation’. This has a discommoding effect on our skin’s surface, which leads to premature ageing and wrinkles.
Unprotected skin exposed to the sun causes irregular texture, wrinkles, pigmentation and dullness. Although you need vitamin D from sunlight, we all know too much of the sun is damaging to the skin.
UVA rays from the sun can penetrate deep into your skin and damage collagen, which is the protein that holds your skin together in a firm and smooth way. Overexposure to the sun's rays can also result in hyperpigmentation or even painful sunburn. The best way to avoid it is to keep away from the sun, or to use a good sunscreen with UVA, UVB and PA++.
Air pollutants can affect skin's ability to monitor moisture levels causing skin to become dry and pores clogged, causing pimples and blackheads. Free radical damage speeds the process of ageing. These can cause damage to skin cells, causing deterioration of the skin’s support structures, decreasing collagen.
4. TOBACCO SMOKE
Toxins in tobacco smoke damage collagen and elastin, which are fibrous components of skin that keep it firm and supple.
This damage speeds up skin aging, making smokers more prone to wrinkles on their faces and body. It also damages skin in other ways that affect one's appearance and also lives at risk.
Stress is the worst enemy for our skin. Our skin has its manner of reacting to external and internal stress; too much stress can even lead to skin disorders like stress bumps on face. Stress is a proven cause for skin related conditions like skin darkening or acne.
Here is a list of skin conditions caused by stress:

Face masks in powdered form can be used by every skin type, however people with oily skin can benefit the most from the amazing properties of these masks. For example, face masks with clay absorb the excess of oil that has gathered on the surface of the skin, remove dead skin cells, and clean dirt from clogged pores.
