Deepika Padukone’s Go-To Skincare Hack Is Absolutely Free Of Cost
Deepika Padukone’s self-care routine is quite intriguing. The founder of 82°E just let us in on her go-to hack for plump, glowy skin, and it surprised me a little. Because it needs no money at all. Just a few minutes of patience, and that’s it.
Her hack involved 2 steps. You might want to check it out yourself.
She Steams The Face First
Deepika either steps into the sauna or steams after her A.M. workout. Steam increases blood flow to the face. The more the circulation, the more the nutrition and oxygen your cells receive. This rejuvenates your skin. That’s why it looks flushed and glowy right after.
Since steam loosens your pores, it becomes easier to get rid of the build-up, blackheads and dirt. This process eliminates acne-causing bacteria from the pores too. No more run-ins with random flare-ups.
It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin too. These proteins are responsible for the firmness and elasticity of your skin. But as you age, their levels deplete. Steaming ensures that the depletion is delayed. Even by a little. And, of course, it hydrates the face from within.
You can steam your face with a facial steamer instead of going to the sauna.
And Ices It Right After
Steaming might have loosened your pores. But you cannot leave them like that. You need to tighten your pores to prevent dirt from settling in again. That’s why icing. While steaming dilates your blood vessels, icing does the opposite. It constricts your blood vessels and reduces circulation, which depuffs the under-eye area, shrinks the pores, and calms and soothes redness, acne, and inflammation.
This tightening of the blood vessels and pores reduces the visibility of lines and wrinkles as well. Your face looks sculpted and less tired by the end of the process. You can dunk your face in a bowl of ice cubes like Deepika or simply run a handkerchief-covered cube all over your face in circular motions.
That’s how simple it is. Thanks, DP!
