Skin Care During Weight Loss
Thanks for your kind comments on my first set of photos :). On my candid confession that my skin is glowing, a lot of you posed questions on my skincare and diet. Our dear Vrinda asked me about my diet plan :).
Before I give you tips on Skin Care During Weight Loss, I would like to share a few things about the diet that I am following. Most of you know that I am not eating wheat. I am taking a lot of supplements, will publish the list soon. If I were to describe my diet in a few words, it revolves around – Low carbs, Medium Fat ,High Fiber and High Protein. I am using skimmed milk for homemade paneer and curd. Sometimes, I use a teaspoon of Ghee in my veggies. Let’s jump to the main topic now –
Skin Care During Weight Loss
Drink water as if there is no tomorrow. Keep yourself hydrated the entire day. During workout too, don’t skip water. Since my fat intake is low, I don’t get enough moisture and my skin behaves drier than usual, I have increased my water intake.
Use a good body lotion. If you have dry skin, your skin might flake. Please refer Wise She for body lotion reviews or simply comment here and ask Ana :P.
Sweat like a pig :D. Exercise increases the blood circulation and flushes toxins out giving you beautiful and glowing skin.
Your skin may become loose after you have lost weight. The measures to handle this problem are given here.
Scrub more often. It helps in skin regeneration and exfoliation too. . Please refer Wise She for reviews or simply comment here and ask Ana :P.
Massages are your gateway to heaven. These will help you to tone more. I don’t think there is a need to express how relaxed you feel after a nice massage.
DON’T punish your skin by smoking and drinking alcohol. You can relish red wine once in a while.
Increase your Vitamin C intake. I shall review a Vitamin C supplement soon.
When you are about to prepare an egg dish, pour a little on your palm and apply on your face once in a while :). Eggs are great for skin tightening. I wish they did not stink so much , phew !
Follow CTM routine religiously.
Low fat intake can cause you cramping sometimes. Use a little Desi Ghee in your food. Good fats are essential to burn fat in your body. Include a glass of milk in your diet.
Please take bath after workout, even if you did not sweat ! Don’t kill me for mentioning this 😛
Use clean clothes for workout.
Follow Body Brushing before taking bath. Use body brush on your bare skin to detoxify.
Omega 3 supplements are must for hair and skin during weight loss.
Hot water baths can soothe your soreness and help you relax.
Visit your favorite salon every month for facial. Your skin gets tortured while following a diet regime. Facials would the much needed massage and glow on your face.
Snack on almonds and walnuts without fail.
Now on a very serious note, don’t laugh at my piccys :). Although I don’t wear makeup daily but I had to gather courage to share my bare face closeup piccys. I am not wearing anything on my face in these pics, not even lip balm or moisturizer. P. S – No photoshop used 😛
I think I need to act on my dark circles soon. Oooh God !
I hope these tips would help you dealing with skin issues during the long and tiring weight loss journey. Keep going !
P.S – Your truly has completed 100 posts on IWB. Thanks for bearing me :). Lots of Love – Tarun
