Dark spots : Dark spots (also referred to as age spots or sun spots) on face can be reduced by using a 2% hydroquinone based lightening gel or lotion. Exfoliants like AHA (glycolic acid) and BHA (salicylic acid) also help to fade brown discolorations on skin when used regularly. For those of you who prefer DIY route, a mixture of honey and lemon juice is a good remedy to lighten dark spots on the body especially elbows and knees.
Frizzy hair : When you are blow drying your hair straight, make sure to apply a heat protective serum and keep the nozzle downwards to keep the hair cuticle smooth as it dries. This minimizes frizz and flyaways. Also, switch to a hydrating/smoothing sulfate free shampoo in winters to protect your tresses from drying effects of cold weather and keep them smooth and soft to touch.
Puffy eyes : For puffy eyes, often a result of too much salty food or alcohol, try chilled tea bags to get a quick-fix. The cold plus caffeine combination pulls out the excess fluid from the affected area reducing puffiness. Also avoid greasy eye creams because the oils used in eye creams can seep into the eyes and might increase puffines.
Thinning hair : To stop hair fall, take vitamin B supplements and adequate amount of protein in your diet and try to get more sleep. Regularly massaging your hair with oil (preferably jojoba or olive oil) before shampooing also helps by increasing blood circulation in your scalp and thus reducing hair fall.
Early wrinkles : Harmful UV rays are the number one cause of aging skin, and it can be prevented by daily use of broad-spectrum sunscreen and using skin care products containing retinol and antioxidants. (Tanning beds are equally bad ladies!) Also, to prevent wrinkles, try to sleep on your back. Regularly sleeping on one side (or tummy) stretches the skin on that side of the face and leads to early lines. Since your diet also influences your skin, cutting out acidic foods like sugar, cola, coffee and red meat is a good idea to prevent premature aging. Eat more dark leafy greens and healthy fats like nuts, avocados, fish and olive oil keep your skin soft and supple.
