Body Care

Stress can affect your whole body, including your skin, hair, and nails. Stress can cause a chemical response in your body that makes skin more sensitive and reactive. These things can make it harder for skin problems to heal. You might also skip on your skincare routine when you are stressed, which can aggravate your skin problems. Stress can trigger a flare-up of fever blisters, hives, and many other types of skin rashes. Stress can also worsen eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis. Here is how competition between stress vs looks goes.

Dry skin

Cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone” decreases the skin’s natural production of a natural moisturizer- hyaluronic acid. It can damage the defending qualities of skin that allow it to keep hydration levels up. People also consume lots of caffeine or alcohol when they are under stress, which can be dehydrating. Stress reduces the lipid barrier on the skin, causing fluids to evaporate and leading to dryness. A great way to combat this is to use a night serum that will repair your skin while you are asleep.

It is recommended that you use Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum that has a non-greasy, easily-absorbed formula. It will be the perfect warrior in your fight against signs of premature aging and environmental damage. It contains Hyaluronic Acid that can prevent premature wrinkles and oily skin. The serum will help repair your skin while you are asleep.

Dullness

Our bodies produce adrenaline when under stress, which can decrease the blood flow to the skin, taking away important nutrients from the skin. It allows dead skin cells to build up and causes dullness. The body’s digestive system can also go a bit haywire as the blood is directed away from the digestive system, and everything becomes a little acidic. It can also lead to skin problems such as dreariness, blemishes, and oiliness. 

Fine lines and wrinkles

Sugar levels in the blood decrease when cortisol is released, it can lead to glycation in the skin which damages the collagen. Collagen is responsible for skin elasticity, which makes the skin look plump and youthful, thus, a lack of collagen can increase the appearance of lines and wrinkles. As cited above, stress can cause dryness, which is also the leading cause of fine lines and wrinkles. Frequent frowning due to stress causes frown lines and deep lines that run from the nose to the mouth and the chin. 

Immune-related skin problems

Poor sleep during stress can enhance the severity of inflammatory skin conditions. Increased inflammation can hamper the body’s ability to regulate the immune system, which can lead to immune-related skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. People with severe psoriasis actually have an increased risk of heart attacks, so keep your stress low and get a good quality sleep. 

Dermatitis

Stress makes you more vulnerable to allergens by shutting down one part of the immune system but cranking up another. Stress, anger, and frustration can worsen the problem of atopic dermatitis, but they haven’t been shown to cause it.

Acne

Stress causes your body to release stress hormones, including cortisol and other hormones, which stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more oil and hence breakout. What makes it worse is that people when stressed often cannot leave pimples alone and pick, squeezing becomes an obsessive way to release tension. A proper cleanser can help in avoiding acne breakouts. It is important to have a powerful yet gentle cleanser that doesn’t disturb the skin’s natural pH or takes off its moisture barrier. One such cleanser is the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash. It will penetrate deep into your skin and pull out extra sebum, grime, and dust to clean up the pores. Using this cleanser will help you get your clear, bouncy, and younger-looking skin again.

Rashes and hives

The skin cells on an outermost (epidermal) layer of your skin are packed tightly together, which forms a strong barrier that blocks the penetration of bacteria and other pathogens. Stress can cause the outermost layer of skin to break up as skin cells contract. These minuscule pops make the skin more penetrable, allowing bacteria to gain access to the deeper layers of skin. These bacteria produce a protein that stimulates the immune system, causing psoriasis and eczema.

Hair fall

This condition is known as Telogen effluvium in which hair falls out because you are sick or stressed. Hair has a fixed cycle, including growth, resting, and shedding. Stress can switch the hair follicle’s growth stage from a development stage to a resting phase. Once the follicles enter this resting phase, it stays there for about three months and causes a large amount of hair to shed. What you need is a Sulfate-free shampoo that can help you avoid hair fall and promotes the strengthening of hair strands. The Pilgrim Sulfate-Free Shampoo has Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia as the main ingredients. Together, these will strengthen your hair, fight dandruff, soothe your scalp, and repair the damaged strands.

Here are a few methods that can help you with stress relief- 

Relax

Talk to your friends and family members to seek support from them. Listen to your favorite music and read your favorite books or spend some time alone to beat stress. 

Sleep

Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night to feel completely refreshed the next morning. Not getting enough sleep can result in poor water balance, which can cause wrinkles, dryness, under-eye circles, and puffy bags under your eyes. 

Exercise

Do regular exercise, meditation, and yoga to keep stress at bay. Physical activity boosts circulation, which stimulates blood flow to the skin, thus there are fewer toxins and hence less cellulite, giving you radiant skin. 

Diet

Drink lots of water, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and ensure lots of protein intake. Reduce consumption of caffeine and increase the intake of anti-oxidants. 

In the battle of stress vs looks, it is important for you to armor yourself with a good skincare routine and healthy habits. It is always better to stay prepared and work towards stress relief.

Are you spending a lot of time in front of the mirror, worrying about your pimples? Well, the teen years can be filled with agonies, especially when it comes to skin problems. Almost all teens suffer from skin troubles, including painful pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and many other forms of blemishes. Having a good skincare regime is vital during your teen years and is also the best time when you should start to follow proper teenage skincare. If you take proper care of your skin and continue to keep it properly nurtured, you can stop various skin problems from occurring over and over again. 

Know your skin type-

Before we discuss the skincare regime, it is very important for you to know your skin type, whether it is oily, dry, normal or combination skin to help you choose products wisely. 

In this article, we shall see some skincare rules that can aid you in taking better care of your skin.

Facial cleansing-

Wash your face twice a day: once in the morning and once at night. Oil, dirt, and sweat can accumulate on the skin overnight. Thus make sure to wash your face after waking up for better penetration of skin products. Repeat the same process at night before going to sleep to remove the dirt, oil, and particulate matter that accumulate during the day. So, wash it gently and properly to give it a feel of freshness before dozing off. Use products with Salicylic acid, or Vitamin A to help clear your acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions and be careful not to overwash, it can irritate your skin. 

Exfoliate your skin –

Exfoliation of skin helps in getting rid of various dead cells from the outermost layer of your skin, giving you healthy and glowing skin. The build-up of these dead skin cells can lead to excess oil and clogged pores, causing acne and other skin problems. Exfoliation also helps in better penetration of skin care products such as serums, toners, moisturizers, and sunscreen. Use gentle exfoliators if you have acne-prone skin.

Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub is a gentle yet effective scrub. Its extra-fine particles will be gently sloughing off the dead skin cells, blackheads, and whiteheads from the skin. It can also reduce pigmentation, suntan, fine lines, and discolorations. In no time, you will have a soft, supple, younger-looking skin. Avoid over-exfoliation as it can make your skin red and flaky. 

Applying Skin toner –

The Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner is perfect for delivering the most potent ingredients of nature to your skin. The toner will spread evenly and get absorbed instantly to reveal soft and glowing skin. It will also hydrate your skin and maintain your pH balance.

Moisturizing your skin

Moisturizing is an essential part of skin care. You need to balance the application of moisturizer as using it excessively can cause acne problems, and lack of moisture can make your skin excessively dry and cause wrinkles on your face. Also, choose a separate moisturizing product for your face and for your body parts. 

Lip care-

Lips are one of the most sensitive parts of the body, which makes it prone to damage easily. Opt for a lip balm with natural ingredients and avoid ingredients like petrolatum. Lips are also prone to sunburn as they lack melanin, the pigment responsible for protecting skin from the sun. So, do not forget to apply sunblock on your lips. 

Applying sunscreen –

Make it a regular habit of applying sunscreen every time you go out of your home. A minimum of SPF 30 or more is recommended for daily wear. Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream is built with SPF 50. It will protect you from the sun, prevent sunspots, and even provide coverage for slight discolorations like hyperpigmentation and redness. Sunscreens are extremely beneficial in protecting the skin against sun damage and aging signs. We generally have a misconception of using sunscreens only during summer. But, if you want better UVA/UVB sun rays protection for your skin, then do apply sunscreens during winter or cloudy season too. 

Skincare rules for you-

  • Drink lots of water to keep your body and skin hydrated
  • Sleep 7-8 hours every day 
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Avoid excessive use of topical creams
  • Don’t pop or squeeze the blackhead or a pimple

We hope with this teenage skincare routine, you can take better care of yourself and have a beautiful and healthy-looking skin lifelong.

Taking care of your skin in the party season can be a difficult task. However, following a skincare routine to maintain your skin and keep it healthy is necessary. As everybody’s skin is different, there are some things which might work for you and some might not. Therefore, you should figure out a routine that works well with your skin type. Here are some general party skincare tips that you can follow to keep your skin healthy and fresh during the party season: 

  • Keep your routine simple and fuss-free:

    Your routine should be easy to follow, fuss-free, and shouldn’t take a lot of time to complete. With your skin exposed to makeup regularly during the party season, a pre-makeup routine, as well as a post-makeup routine, can help you look your best during the day and can help your skin rejuvenate when you sleep. Following some steps, before you apply makeup will also make your makeup look flawless and perfect. Your routine should also be based on your skin type as well as your skin sensitivity.
  • Clean your face right before going to bed

    This is one of the most basic but important components of a skincare routine. Removing the makeup, you put on before stepping out and cleaning all the dirt from your face before going to bed should not be forgotten under any circumstance. It is easy to just fall on your bed and sleep without doing any skincare, but washing your face is a must. When you leave makeup on your face overnight, it can be quite damaging to your skin.

We recommend you use the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash with Yugdugu and White Lotus which help you clean your face gently. The Volcanic Lava Ash deep cleanses your skin and pulls out any pollution or dirt present in your pores.

Yugdugu has natural anti-bacterial properties that will keep any infections and acne at bay. White Lotus will provide a brighter complexion and keep your skin healthy.  

  • Exfoliate at least twice a week:

    Exfoliation is a method which many of us skip. However, it is a necessary step which should be done at least twice a week, especially as a part of your skincare in party season. Your skin can look dull and lifeless if the dead skin cells and dirt are not cleaned from your pores and the surface of your skin. Exfoliation can brighten your skin up and bring a natural glow to your face. 
  • Use a face primer before applying makeup:

    If you have large pores or you suffer from regular acne breakouts, you should use a pore filling primer which will prevent the makeup you apply on your face from entering your skin. On the other hand, if you have dry skin and need extra moisturization before you apply makeup, you can use a normal hydrating primer that moisturizes your skin. A good primer can create a perfect base for your makeup and your skin will look flawless. Moreover, this will also help in keeping the makeup on the surface of your skin. 
  • Keep a face mist with you:

    Keeping a small bottle of a face mist in your purse will ensure that you never look anything but fresh and lively. Use a face mist whenever you feel that skin might start looking dull and lifeless. It would be great if you use a hydrating face mist as it will rehydrate your skin and freshen up your makeup. 
  • Use a sunscreen before going out during the day:

    Using a sunscreen before stepping out in the sun is an important step. The harmful rays from the sun can harm your skin and can result in dark spots and pigmentation. Excess exposure to the sun can also make your skin look dull and lifeless. You should use a good sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. The Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream with SPF 50 with Camellia and Yugdugu is the perfect cream to apply before stepping out of your house. This cream moisturizes your skin and also protects from the sun. The White Lotus extracts will hydrate your skin, provide elasticity, and control sebum production. The cream is built with SPF 50 which will provide sufficient protection from the sun. If you are in an outdoor setting, directly under the sun, you should reapply the cream every three to four hours. 
  • Use a rejuvenating mask and an eye cream at night:

    While it is a joy to go to a party and enjoy yourself, it can also be long and stressful. The stress can be visible on your skin as well. Therefore, to keep your skin looking fresh and not tired, you should include a rejuvenating face mask and an eye cream before bed for your party skincare routine. This will help control any under-eye inflammation, redness, or puffiness and will also soothe your skin.

If you have dry skin, your skin needs extra care and moisturization during the cold and harsh winter months. The cold air which lacks moisture surrounds you and can make your skin look dull and dehydrated. Therefore, it is important to take proper care of your skin during the winters. The winter air can also lead to flaky skin and irritation and cause severe allergic reactions. The bitter and cold temperature has the potential to wreak havoc on your skin and sometimes, can also lead to permanent damage. To prevent winter skin issues and to keep it healthy-looking and moisturized in winters, you should follow some skincare steps religiously. 

What skincare steps to follow to take care of dry skin in winters?

It can be quite a difficult task to take care of dry skin during winters. Skincare routines differ based on the skin type of a person. Some products and routines which may work for one person may not work for another. Keeping this in mind, some general steps work for almost all people. No matter what your skin type is, you can follow these tips to keep your skin feeling moisturized, hydrated, and healthy and avoiding winter skin issues:

  • Avoid taking hot showers:

    While it is very comfortable and convenient to use super-hot water while taking a bath or a shower during the winters, repeated use of hot water can cause your skin to dry out. It is best to use water which is warm rather than hot. This will help you keep the moisture in your skin locked in and will prevent you from experiencing dry, flaky, and itchy skin. 

  • Use bath oils or body cleaning oils instead of shower gels and soap:

    During the winters, your skin needs as much moisturization as it can get. Therefore, even while taking a bath, you should keep in mind to use oil-based products such as bath oils and body cleansing oils. These will help you retain the moisture of your skin. Soap and shower gels are great for normal weather but can cause your already dry skin to be even drier. Look for products that have plant oils as ingredients to protect your skin’s moisture barrier. 

  • Use a thick oil-based moisturizer:

    Moisturization is a step that should not be ignored. Anyone with dry skin type should use a thick, oil-based moisturizer to keep their skin hydrated. Using a moisturizer right after taking a shower or washing your face will lock in the moisture and keep skin dryness away during the harsh months of winters. You should choose a cream or a moisturizer which is thicker than your everyday cream to heal dry skin

  • Wash your face only twice a day:

    Over-washing your face can have negative side effects. When you wash your wash, you also strip your skin of all the oil that your skin naturally produces to keep your skin hydrated. As a person with dry skin type, the oil production is already below what it should be, and washing your face multiple times in a day will cause your skin to be dry and flakey. You should only wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to avoid aggravating your dry skin during the winters. 

  • Use a good sunscreen if you step out of your home:

    Even though the sun feels nice on the skin on a cold winter day, you should always remember to apply a good sunscreen on all your body parts which might be exposed to the sunrays. The UV rays can cause serious damage to your skin and can even make your skin dry and dull.

We would recommend using the Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50 with Camellia and Yugdugu. This cream not only provides moisturization to your skin but the SPF 50 present in it, also protects your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun. The Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream also provides moisturization throughout the day and doesn’t leave any white cast or oily residue on your skin. This cream, therefore, can be used by people of all skin types.

If you are in the sun for a long period, don’t forget to reapply your sunscreen every three to four hours.

  • Drink sufficient water:

    Along with applying sunscreen, drinking sufficient water is another step we forget to do during the winter. The cold atmosphere makes it seem that our body doesn’t require water as frequently in winters as it does in summers, but to ensure that your skin is properly hydrated, remember to drink a glass of water every few hours. This is the easiest and the best way to take care of dry skin in winters and heal dry skin.

  • Avoid using products that contain alcohol:

    Products such as toners that have alcohol tend to dry the skin as it absorbs the moisture from the skin. Therefore, it is best to avoid using such products during the winters.

Use a serum at night:

  • A serum is a concentrate that is full of ingredients that moisturize the skin thoroughly. People with dry skin should opt for serums that contain ingredients such as Vitamin C and E for repairing and preventing dry skin, hyaluronic acid for absorbing moisture from the air and pulling it to the surface of the skin and oils such as Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Grapeseed Oil.

You should try the Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and White Lotus. This serum has antioxidants that protect the skin from the harsh and dry winter air. It also brightens the skin and combats free radicals. Along with this, Hyaluronic Acid is one of the best moisturizers for the skin and keeps the moisture in your skin locked in. The Night Serum is also infused with Argan Oil, which will help in keeping your skin soft and supple throughout the winter season. This serum will help your skin recuperate during the night and keep your skin moisturized.

We have all had terrible experiences with dry skin, as it not only looks pale and unappealing from the outside but it also initiates the uncomfortable tingling and itching sensations for you that carry on throughout the day. With all the moisturization tools at your disposal, if you still suffer from dry skin, there must be a bigger problem that needs to be addressed. You can owe the dryness in your skin to a lot of internal and external factors. The lack of absorbed moisture, loss of collagen, depletion of natural oils, and destruction of the skin’s protective layers. Even if you have your usual skincare routine pinned to the T, here are some simple Dos and Don’ts for dry skin and dry skin improvement tips that you must keep in mind to take care of dry skin

Dos:

  1. Moisturize Effectively

Most people begin moisturizing as an afterthought of a shower, and never really get to it as a way to nourish their skin. The best way to get into the habit of daily moisturization is to make sure that you have a lotion that both suits your skin and has ingredients that work effectively for its dryness.

Moisturizers have ceramides that act as a barrier for your skin. Through the help of the right composition, you can save your skin from weakening and take care of dry skin. You can use the Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream that will help protect the skin from the sun and prevent sunspots.

PSA: Dry skin also contributes to early aging, as opposed to moisturized skin. Get that lotion on! 

  1. Pay attention to the contents of your product

Your moisturizer should have oils like jojoba, olive, and sunflower, whereas your scrub should have natural exfoliating agents like sugar, lava ash, Himalayan salt, etc. Do not sell yourself short by blindly following the commercials and look up the contents of products yourself. 

  1. Keep hydrating your face with toner/mist

A general splash of your favorite mist every once in a while will not only keep your skin hydrated from the outside, but it will also intact moisture from the inside. We recommend Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner that has an alcohol-free formula. The White Lotus is for moisturizing and hydrating the skin, and tightening and purifying the pores. It is a must for getting a brighter and firmer skin.

  1. Carry hand creams/pocket-sized lotions with you at all times

You must carry a cream/lotion with you all times, as hydration can use a couple of touch-ups throughout the day. Good advice would be to moisturize your hands immediately after you wash your hands—this way, you can keep the moisture intact, as hands have a higher propensity of drying than the rest of the body. 

  1. Keep changing your skincare routine

You don’t have to stick with a single routine throughout the year. Keep learning new things and experimenting with fresh products on yourself. Also, remember to switch routines depending upon the weather. 

Don’ts

 

  • Avoid hot showers

 

The hotter the shower, the more moisture gets sucked out of your skin. Replacing the hot baths with lukewarm water can drastically decrease the serial drying of your skin, all the while giving you a somber experience. 

 

  • Don’t go to bed without washing your face

 

Wash your face every night. Even if you don’t wish to go through your night routine, you must never go to bed taking all the dust, dirt, bacteria, makeup, and the oils that you collected throughout the day. Letting them stay all night can penetrate your skin and cause inflammation and dryness. 

 

  • Don’t rub fabrics on your face while drying it down

 

Wet skin is already vulnerable, rubbing it hard as an act of drying can tear away at it through friction, causing irritation and inflammation. You should rather pat down the excess water off your face, and not rub it vigorously. 

 

  • Don’t use scrubs and exfoliators with harsh content

 

Many skin care companies have, in the past, gone way overboard with their scrubs and infused them with walnuts and other harmful ingredients in their products. Apart from this, for years, companies have continued using sulfates and carbon monoxide in their products. It is not enough to trust the name and game of the brand. You must check and eliminate these kinds of products themselves to take care of dry skin

 

  • Don’t invest in “24-hour impact” products

 

Your face is perceptible to changes throughout the day. From fighting the pollution outside to repairing the cells at night. Never invest in products that promise a 24-hour impact. Instead, stick to products that are prone to natural wear off after 8 to 10 hour period. 

 

  • Don’t use products with paraben, sulfates, and mineral oil

 

Products with alcohol, paraben, and mineral oil dominate the skincare market while doing very little good for your skin. Avoid the use of such products and stick to natural products

Most women think skincare loses its focus once they hit their 50s. Whilst wrinkles and fine lines do start to make an appearance after a woman hits 30 and by the time they reach 50, it tends to lose its collagen and elasticity. However, there are ways to ensure a youthful glow that you once had. How to do it? We bring you simple and easy skin care tips. Read on. 

Keep Your Skin Moisturized At All Times 

One of the most important skin caretips that you must always follow is to use a moisturizer and keep it moisturized at all times. Invest wisely when it comes to your face creams. Opt for day and night one. The day one will keep it moisturized and will protect your skin from UV rays whilst the night cream will help you with replenishing and rejuvenating your skin. Choose something with anti-aging properties and look for thick creams to keep it hydrated, just like it used to once. 

Retinol 

Retinol is great for anti-aging. It not only brightens your skin, but it also helps reduce your wrinkles and fine lines. When it comes to using this magical ingredient, it must be done at night time only and you shouldn’t apply anything on your skin before or after you are done with retinol. Start with the mild one first and use it every alternate day till you get adjusted to it. Once that happens and a few months pass you can move on to the next one. For instance, start with 0.25% retinol and after 6 months or one year, you can switch to 0.50%. It is one of the best skincare products you can use. 

Never Neglect Your Neck 

Now that you are in your 50s, you already know that aging doesn’t stick to your face only. You experience it prominently on your neck and even hands. You must be thinking, how can I make my skin look better? The rule is simple. Whatever you put on your face, put it on your neck and hands too. Also remember, always move down to up which applying products on your neck and not the other way round. 

Exfoliation 

By the time you hit your 50s, the outer layer of your skin is filled with dead skin, making it thicker. So, for a smooth and youthful glow, exfoliate regularly. You can do it twice a week for best results. When it comes to exfoliations, always choose a mild one. If it is too grainy, it can damage your skin. Along with it, always pair it with a good face wash, which you use regularly, twice a day. And one of the best skincare tips you can follow here is to massage your face with your face wash for at least 60 seconds gently. Once you are done, only then wash it off.

We recommend that you use the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub. Its pillowy texture and extra-fine particles will gently foam your skin and slough off the dead skin cells. The Volcanic Lava Ash, White Lotus, and Yugdugu work together for reducing discolorations, suntan, fine lines, pigmentation, and improving the elasticity of the skin.

Sunscreen Is A Must 

Just because you are 50, it doesn’t mean your sunscreen days are over. You must still religiously follow it every day, without fail. 

Buy The Right Products 

Understand what your skin needs. It actually speaks to you. So, don’t simply buy products that you used to once own. As you grow older, your skin’s needs also change. Make sure that all the best skincare products you buy match your needs. For instance, if you think your skin looks dehydrated, you need something that will keep it well moisturized and if you think wrinkles are the problems then use a retinol-based anti-aging skincare cream. 

Face Mask 

A face mask is an easy skincare tip you can follow to ensure a great skin. Use something that addresses the concerns of your skin along with providing you all the anti-aging benefits. Use face masks at least twice a week and follow all the instructions given on the packet to the T and you are good to go. You can also try Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Mask, a clay-based mask that brings the nutrients from within up to the skin and boosts microcirculation. It draws out pollutants, irritants, and excess oil from the pores and prevents breakouts. Thanks to the unique formation of the mask, it will leave your skin smooth and supple.

Vitamin C Serums 

We all wonder from time to time how we can make our skin look better.And the answer here is definitely the vitamin c serum. It helps reduce the damages caused by the sun and also brightens your skin as it is full of antioxidants. However, make sure you opt for a good brand that does the deed. 

Quit Smoking 

Firstly, smoking is extremely bad for your overall health. But, if you want a youthful-looking skin then quit immediately because smoking just speeds up the aging process. ]

Water And More Water!

You have probably heard this a plethora of times but it is one of the best skincare tips out there. Drinking plenty of water prevents any constipation and helps flush away the waste faster. Also, it helps keep your skin hydrated. 

Carry A Concealer 

Apart from trying to boost a youthful glow naturally, you can invest in concealer, which we can all agree is the best skincare product out there. A concealer does just as what its name suggests, it conceals the flaws. However, choose the right one for your skin tone and also the condition. For instance, if you intend to cover your dark circles, you can choose something with a reddish hue and then cover it up with the foundation to hide it well. 

Hyaluronic Acid 

Use hyaluronic acid for the best anti-aging results. It helps absorb the moisture and also retains it in your skin, keeping it hydrated. Also, it effectively pumps your skin, helping you tighten and brighten your skin. 

Face Oils 

For some women, using face oils work better than using moisturizers but for some, it causes breakouts and just makes it look oily. So, try it as face oils too offer exceptional results, but if it doesn’t work for you, you can always go back to using your moisturizers. Also, when it comes to face oils, instead of DIYing your way through it, stick to brands that work. 

These were our best skincare tips for women who have hit 50. Give them a try and do it regularly for amazing results.

Lazy winter days filled with cozy blankets, crusty toasts by the fireside with endless hot beverages are just perfect until you realize your skin is a mess with no sound explanation. The low humidity and freezing temperature in winter can give you a winter itch. The moisture content in your skin drops as the temperature drops, which can cause skin irritation.  Many people experience this problem during the winter season. 

Causes

Our skin’s outer layer contains natural oils, which keep your skin smooth, soft, and moisturized. Low temperature can strip your skin of essential moisture, which can be intensified with blower and heating equipment used in the home. Some of the other causes include a viral infection or sensitivity to fragrance-based products. These extreme conditions can strip your body of natural oil, causing dry skin and irritation. Symptoms may include sensitivity, flaking, itching, and redness. When the weather is extreme, you will have to put some extra effort to keep your skin at its best. Here are some tips you can follow for your skin and make the most out of this season. 

Avoid hot water bath-

Frequent hot baths or showers can strip your skin of natural oils and cause skin irritation. Instead, use lukewarm water to keep your skin hydrated and bathe for not more than 10 minutes. 

Be wise with products-

Avoid using fragranced soaps for a bath as they can lead to winter itch skin. Instead, go for soaps that contain moisturizing ingredients such as jojoba oil, olive oil, vitamin E, and glycerin. Shampoos, conditioners, detergents with a lot of fragrance can aggravate your skin conditions. So, buy only fragrance-free products.

Go with natural products like the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner. Its alcohol-free formula puts all the moisture back in your skin cell. The White Lotus purifies the pores and hydrates your skin while the Witch Hazel replenishes the moisture, soothes skin irritations, shrinks pores, and prevents blemishes.

Lastly, Camellia flowers nourish the skin and moisturize it. It is a must product for achieving a firmer and brighter skin.

Moisturize your skin

After you come out of the shower, pat dry and moisturize your skin with winter care moisturizing cream while your skin is still damp. Use heavy creams or an oil-based moisturizer to help seal water in the skin and preserve moisture. You can also choose a cream with Aloe Vera gel or vitamin E extracts. Apply a generous amount of the moisturizer and reapply it whenever you wash your hands. It is a crucial step for winter skin protection.

Oil massage:

Oiling your body throughout the winter season is one of the best ways to prevent skin irritation. In winter, skin irritation is caused by a lack of moisture and cracked skin. Oil heals the cracked skin and supplies moisture to it. If you have oily skin, it would be better to use baby oil. However, for dry skin, you can use olive oil, castor oil, or just mustard skin.

Humidifier-

Use a humidifier to help retain the lost moisture in the air due to the continuous use of the blower. Place it in the areas where you spend most of the time to get the best results.

Cover your hands with gloves before going out and always carry a hand cream. Apply a hand cream whenever you wash your hands and make sure it includes sunblock ingredients for winter skin protection against sun exposure. 

Diet-

Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids to neutralize your skin and prevent dehydration in your skin cells. Also, eat lots of fresh fruits and green veggies to keep your skin hydrated. Add sweet potato, walnuts, and oranges to your diet to relieve dry, itchy skin. Drink 7 to 8 glasses of water every day to keep your skin hydrated, which helps fight skin irritation and rashes.

Lazy winter days filled with cozy blankets, crusty toasts by the fireside with endless hot beverages are just perfect until you realize your skin is a mess with no sound explanation. The low humidity and freezing temperature in winter can give you a winter itch. The moisture content in your skin drops as the temperature drops, which can cause skin irritation.  Many people experience this problem during the winter season. 

Causes

Our skin’s outer layer contains natural oils, which keep your skin smooth, soft, and moisturized. Low temperature can strip your skin of essential moisture, which can be intensified with blower and heating equipment used in the home. Some of the other causes include a viral infection or sensitivity to fragrance-based products. These extreme conditions can strip your body of natural oil, causing dry skin and irritation. Symptoms may include sensitivity, flaking, itching, and redness. When the weather is extreme, you will have to put some extra effort to keep your skin at its best. Here are some tips you can follow for your skin and make the most out of this season. 

Avoid hot water bath-

Frequent hot baths or showers can strip your skin of natural oils and cause skin irritation. Instead, use lukewarm water to keep your skin hydrated and bathe for not more than 10 minutes. 

Be wise with products-

Avoid using fragranced soaps for a bath as they can lead to winter itch skin. Instead, go for soaps that contain moisturizing ingredients such as jojoba oil, olive oil, vitamin E, and glycerin. Shampoos, conditioners, detergents with a lot of fragrance can aggravate your skin conditions. So, buy only fragrance-free products.

 Go with natural products like the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner. Its alcohol-free formula puts all the moisture back in your skin cell. The White Lotus purifies the pores and hydrates your skin while the Witch Hazel replenishes the moisture, soothes skin irritations, shrinks pores, and prevents blemishes.

Lastly, Camellia flowers nourish the skin and moisturize it. It is a must product for achieving a firmer and brighter skin.

Moisturize your skin

After you come out of the shower, pat dry and moisturize your skin with winter care moisturizing cream while your skin is still damp. Use heavy creams or an oil-based moisturizer to help seal water in the skin and preserve moisture. You can also choose a cream with Aloe Vera gel or vitamin E extracts. Apply a generous amount of the moisturizer and reapply it whenever you wash your hands. It is a crucial step for winter skin protection.

From getting those perfect abs to that flawless bikini shape, exercise is must with all the blessings it bestows. However, exercise doesn’t just mean losing pounds but gives you a healthy, glowing skin too. Your body produces stress hormones known as cortisol when you are stressed, which affects your skin and hair in ways you won’t like. When you exercise, your body produces happiness hormones known as the serotonin, which reduces the cortisol hormones to a great extent. It also improves blood circulation to the extremities such as toe, toenails, fingers, and fingernails. Exercise develops your stamina, makes you fitter, healthier, more flexible, and stronger. The benefits of working out are many. Let’s take a look at some of the skin revamping benefits of exercise.

Acne

When you are stressed, your body releases stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which can trigger breakouts whereas exercise produces feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins, which in turn reduces stress. Exercise also boosts your heart rate, which increases your blood flow and nourishes your skin. Because your circulation is increased during sweating, many of the toxins and impurities including dead skin cells, oils, and chemicals, which build up over time are able to exit your body with the help of open skin pores. You can find considerable relief from acne by including exercise in your daily routine. There is no particular exercise for acne but it should entail sweating profusely. Make sure that you clean your face after a workout as leaving sweat on your skin can cause a breakout. 

Hair growth

Exercise increases blood flow to our muscles, skin, and scalp. This increased blood flow helps bring more nutrients and more oxygen to the scalp, which provide nourishment to the hair roots and promote healthy hair growth. Also, when we sweat while exercising, it helps to unclog the hair follicles and gives enough space for new hair growth. Exercise also reduces stress and low stress means your hair is less likely to be fragile or fall out. The best exercise for hair growth is cardio as it involves intense workout. It stimulates sebum and prevents drying of the scalp. You can also perform specific hair growth techniques such as acupuncture, yoga, hair massage, and calisthenics. 

Glowing skin

Does exercise help clear skin? Absolutely! When you exercise, there is increased blood circulation which gives you radiant and glowing skin. It also eradicates problems like blackheads, dirt, and oil-free skin, regulates skin hormones, prevent radical damage, and much more. More blood reaches the skin surface when we exercise as it helps in opening up the small arteries of blood in your skin. This, in turn, repairs the damages caused by the environment and the sun. 

Aging

Regular physical exercise can reduce inflammation in the body that comes with aging. It’s because people who exercise regularly tend to have a better immune system. Exercise boosts collagen, a protein responsible for keeping your skin firm, healthy and supple, which improves your fine lines and wrinkles. It tones your muscles beneath the skin, giving more support to the skin and making it elastic and firmer. So, time to put down that expensive anti-aging cream and hit the treadmill instead.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks are uninviting linear streaks that appear red or purplish pink. It is the most common skin problem in both men and women. They can appear on any body part where the skin is stretched enough due to tissue expansion. Some of the causes of stretch marks are weight fluctuation, hormones, puberty, and pregnancy. You can get rid of stretch marks with the right exercises. Exercise will firm your muscles of hips and thighs, making stretch marks less visible on your skin. Some of the suitable exercises for stretch marks are cardio, squats, crunches, and leg lifts. Here are a few things you need to keep in mind to reap all the benefits of exercise

  •   Drink lots of water to avoid dehydration.
  •   Never wear makeup while working out.

During pregnancy, your body goes through many physical and emotional changes. The single biggest change among all physical transformations during pregnancy is stretch marks. Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that take place on the surface of the skin. In medical terms, they are known as the strip, striae, or during pregnancy as striae gravidarum. They occur when your body grows rapidly, which causes the elastic fibers under your skin’s surface to break hence the stretch marks. They usually appear in the areas where fat is stored such as shoulders, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, breasts, and tummy, but can also occur in other areas where the skin has been stretched. According to a report of the American Academy of dermatology, 90% of women get stretch marks after their 5th or 6th month of pregnancy. However, here are some tips on

how to prevent stretch marks. 

Diet- 

Eat a healthy, balanced diet that is rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, fatty acids, zinc, vitamin E, and minerals. This will help increase elasticity, giving you a healthy and glowing skin. Include lots of tuna, egg yolks, olive oil, grapefruits, berries, melon, avocados, oat bran, pumpkin, and spinach in your daily diet. 

Water-

Well-hydrated skin is not just more supple than dehydrated skin, but can also aid in preventing stretch marks. True hydration occurs from inside. So, drink at least 7-8 glasses of water on a daily basis. Eat fruits and vegetables that are rich in water for further hydration along with vital nutrients and fibers. Avoid drinking sugary drinks and caffeine, they can make your skin more dehydrated. Staying hydrated is the best for preventing stretch marks during pregnancy.

Moisturizing-

Moisturize your skin after cleansing to hydrate your skin. Look for a moisturizer with wheat germ oil, Shea butter, egg oil, almond oil, Kokum oil, and cocoa butter.

Moisturize several times a day using Pilgrim Shea & Cocoa Body Butter to keep your skin healthy and pliable. You can use this cream for preventing stretch marks.

Exfoliation-

As your body grows rapidly, your skin needs time to help recreate collagen and fade stretch marks. You can certainly speed up this process by exfoliation. Exfoliate your skin using the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Body Scrub to boost blood circulation and improve skin elasticity. 

Cleansing-

Avoid using cleansers that contain sulfates as it can dry out the skin and reduce elasticity. Look for a cleanser made with natural oil, it will hydrate your skin and give you healthy, natural glow skin. Wash your skin with lukewarm water and pat dry it. 

Sunscreen-

Make sure that you apply sunscreen to areas where stretch marks might occur, including chest, sides, and belly. Reapply it after every two hours if you have to stay outside for a long time. 

Maintain your weight-

Gain weight gradually as stretch marks occur when you gain too much weight quickly. Excessive weight may also lead to delivery complications such as excess bleeding and vaginal tears. So, follow a diet plan prepared by a doctor for you and ask your doctor how much weight during pregnancy is right for you. 

Exercise-

Exercising regularly improves body circulation, which will help the skin retain elasticity. It will also prevent you from gaining too much weight too rapidly. Some of the suitable exercises are low impact aerobics, indoor cycling, or brisk walking. 

Maintain nourishment after pregnancy-

Make sure that you nourish your body after pregnancy and don’t go on a crash diet to lose weight. Lose it gradually just as you gained it by eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, avocados, and fish and exercising regularly. You should not lose more than half Kg a week. 

Retinoid

You can also take the help of retinol products. They help speed up cell production and boost collagen growth, giving you plumper and healthier skin. 

Aloe vera-

Use aloe vera if you notice any marks of stretch marks to heal and soothe your skin. Apply it directly on the skin, leave it there for 10-15 minutes and wash it off using lukewarm water. The best time to apply aloe vera on stretch marks is while they are still in that reddish stage.  

Using the above-mentioned tips and products can help in preventing stretch marks. However, it is important to understand that once the stretch marks appear, it is difficult to treat them.  Some stretch marks may fade naturally while some may remain darker and more visible.

A woman’s body undergoes many emotional and physiological changes during the nine months of pregnancy. It’s not just inside your body, but there is a lot happening on the outside too. During pregnancy, your body grows faster than your skin, which causes elastic fibers under the surface of the skin to break, resulting in stretch marks. They usually appear on the abdomen, but some women may also get them on the breasts, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Genetics plays an important role in evaluating whether you will get stretch marks or not. It is a common problem faced by pregnant women across the globe irrespective of age and color. It is estimated that 90 percent of women get stretch marks after their sixth or seventh months of pregnancy. You hate them, but it is not much you can do about it. Stretch marks are harmless and usually fade over time. However, you can avoid stretch marks by making some changes in your diet. 

Zinc-

Zinc protects the skin’s lipids and fibroblasts and boosts collagen production. Collagen holds the skin tissues together and with sufficient collagen, it is possible to get rid of stretch marks. It has anti-inflammatory effects and controls the formation of harmful free radicals. It is also needed for the proper functioning of enzymes that the body needs to heal skin injuries. Eat bananas, lentils, pumpkin seeds, raisins, cocoa powder, cashews, chickpeas, grass-fed beef, and lean meat to get more zinc. Kidney beans are a great non-meat source of Zinc. 

Vitamin A-

Vitamin A increases collagen production, which stimulates the formation of new skin cells and improves skin elasticity. It is also a powerful antioxidant and protects your skin from risky irritants that try to attack the surface. It is absorbed through the skin and helps keep the skin supple and soft. Eat lots of kale, spinach, tuna, mango, apricots, pumpkin, cantaloupe, sweet potatoes, and orange potatoes to get more Vitamin A. 

Vitamin E-

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects your skin from free radicals and environmental contaminants. It repairs damaged skin, maintains normal body metabolism, and is essential for preserving the health of skin tissue and membranes. It also serves as a fence to moisture evaporation, which helps keep the skin hydrated and healthy. Include oat bran, cooked tomatoes, wheat germ, peanut butter, avocados, seeds, and nuts in your diet to avoid stretch marks.

Vitamin C-

Vitamin C plays an important role as a strengthening substance between skin cells and is needed for the synthesis of collagen. Vitamin C improves the elasticity of your skin, which reduces the chances of developing stretch marks. It also helps to produce new and healthy skin cells. Include broccoli, melon, bell peppers, kiwi, berries, grapefruits, citrus fruits. 

Omega 3 fatty acids-

Increase the consumption of healthy fats to add elasticity and promote healthy, glowing skin. They are emollients, natural moisturizers that rejuvenate dry skin and reduce inflammation. Include butter from cows, olive oil, and cold-water fish such as herring and salmon to get fats. 

Vitamin D-

Vitamin D plays an important role in skin regulation and helps control the epidermal atrophy that takes place from rapid growth during pregnancy. Include egg yolks, tuna, swordfish, and fish oil to get more Vitamin D. It is an important part of your diet to avoid stretch marks.

Gelatin-

Gelatin is another name of collagen and works great in improving your skin elasticity. Eat lots of gelatin to increase your skin collagen formation. You can use it to make casseroles, sauces, soups, and gravies or drink it plain in the morning.

Water-

Drink at least two liters of water every day to stay hydrated and avoid stretch marks. It will help keep your skin supple and maintain elasticity, making your skin less prone to stretch marks. Include water-rich foods like fruits and vegetables in your diet for further hydration along with additional vital fibers and nutrients.

When a woman is pregnant, her body goes through a lot of hormonal changes. They have to go through a major change in their physical appearance. This includes their mind, body, and skin. If you want to keep your skin happy, here are some beauty tips for pregnant women:

  • Eating right

If you are pregnant, you have to watch what you eat as the food that goes inside your body will affect your baby as well. Internal care is as important as external care. Therefore, it is important that you consume healthy foods. For keeping your skin plump and smooth, you can eat foods containing omega oils like fish, eggs, and nuts. Leafy veggies, legumes, chocolate, and berries contain Vitamins A, C, and E that fights skin discoloration, wrinkles and make your skin look young. 

  • Stay hydrated

It is one of the most basic and important tips for pregnant women. You must drink plenty of water. The reason behind this is that as your blood gets thicker, your organs pull water from your skin cells. This causes wrinkles and makes your skin look dull and dry. When you are pregnant, you have to drink at least 2 liters of water for your’s and your baby’s benefit. Water will keep your skin hydrated, flush the toxins out from your body, and promote clear-looking and healthy skin.

You can also try the Pilgrim White Lotus Natural Face Mist & Toner. It puts the moisture back your facial skin. The White lotus present in the toner hydrates moisturizes the skin and tightens the pores. It spreads evenly and gets absorbed instantly revealing smooth, soft, and glowing skin. You can use it multiple times a day for refreshing your skin.

  • Body butter

If you are worried about the stretch marks that can occur during pregnancy, you have to take good care of your skin. Get a body butter containing Shea butter and Cocoa Butter. Use the cream or oil for massaging your body gently. Focus on hips, breasts, and belly.

  • Get proper sleep

When you are sleep deprived, it can result in dark circles and tired-looking skin. Adequate sleep can help in repairing the skin from the small damages done by the hormonal changes. It also reduces dark circles and gives a well-rested look to your skin. To sleep well, you can use a soft eye mask or a maternity cushion.

  • Cleansing right

When you are pregnant, hormonal changes are bound to happen. There is nothing that you can do to avoid them. However, you can prepare your skin for these changes. Cleansing your skin twice a day will clean your pores and make your face look soft and fresh. All the products that you use during the nine months of your pregnancy should be gentle and free of any harmful chemicals. Chemicals like aluminum chloride, beta-hydroxy acid,  dihydroxyacetone (DHA), formaldehyde, parabens, phthalates, salicylic acid, and toluene are extremely harmful to your skin. There are certain chemicals present in acne creams that get absorbed through the skin into your and your baby’s bloodstream. Therefore, it is important that you check the label or consult with the doctor before using any creams.

  • Do not overdo

It is common for pregnant women to get worried about the changing skin type, blotchy patches, and breaking out. One common mistake that they do is over-exfoliate for avoiding a breakout. Your skin is extremely sensitive during pregnancy. Buy a gentle exfoliator that won’t scar or irritate your skin and cause breakouts. Also, make sure that you don’t pop or pick your face.

  • Sun exposure

The skin is sensitive to the sun. When you are pregnant, this sensitivity increases. This poses a dilemma. You have to go out and not let the sun burn your skin. However, you don’t want to use sunscreen as they might contain potentially harmful chemical filters like homosalate, octocrylene, and oxybenzone.

What you need to do is find a pregnancy-friendly sunscreen at the local drugstore. Usually, these lotions or creams contain mineral filters like titanium oxide or zinc oxide. These are inert minerals that protect your skin from UVA as well as UVB rays. They sit on the top of the skin and become a barrier against the sun rays. Try the Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50 that protects your skin from the sun and prevents wrinkles and sunspots.

You can also wear a broad-brimmed sun hat for avoiding the skin. But, never compromise on the safety of your skin.

  • Make-up guide 

It is common for pregnant women to get acne, blotchy patches, pigmentations, or dark circles on the face. You can hide these color differences and spots using the right makeup. All you need is the right foundation, concealer, mascara, and lipstick. But, before you use any of these products, make sure that they don’t have any harsh chemicals.

At the end of the day, use the Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum that will repair the skin as you sleep.

Pregnancy is a challenging time for a woman. However, this is also a beautiful journey and you will love every bit of it. You just have to relax and follow the above-mentioned beauty tips for pregnant women as it will keep your skin healthy and clear. Forget about everything else and just enjoy nine months of pampering.
