5 Ways To Protect Your Skin From Dust

Dust might not seem to be that big a problem but it actually is very dangerous for your skin. It can be irritating when you go out and ruin your fresh face look in just a couple of minutes. Apart from the short-term disadvantages, dust can even harm your skin in the long run! But, you can protect your skin with the help by opting for the following ways as provided in the blog post. Check them out and keep your skin healthy.

#1 Use a scarf to cover your skin

Using scarf on your skin is the first protection that you can have to avoid all the dust particles to reach your skin directly. You can cover your skin with a regular scarf or a dupatta. One must always carry a scarf with themselves so as to be ready for any situation where one has to go outside. The most appropriate option for a scarf is cotton or a cotton blend material as it does not slip away and for the dust to reach your skin.

To protect yourself you can either keep a scarf in your bag all the time, which comes handy at all the time. Apart from that, you can carry a scarf with your dress and tie it while going out on your face.

#2 Appropriate sunscreens for safety from the sun

Sunscreens do a lot more wonders than you think of. With sunscreens, you protect your skin’s outermost layer with UV rays and dusts too. Sunscreens allow providing a screen on your skin which when washed removes all the dirt and pollution too. Normally sunscreens contain oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate in it which shield up the skin from any harmful products.

To protect yourself from dust and pollution you should buy sunscreen of Lotus, Lakme or Ayur that provide the best protection. Order these sunscreens with the help of nykaa coupons from the online portals to avail up to 30% discount on your orders. Guess that’s what others call, ‘Safety under the budget’.

#3 Keep it clean

The easiest and the most workable remedy to protect skin from dust is to keep your skin clean. Once you come back home you can wash your face off and clean it with a good cleanser before the dust enters into your pores. Not just dust but cleaning your skin will protect it from all kinds of dirt, tanning and other kinds of germs that can enter into the skin by anyway. To keep your skin clean is all you need to protect your skin from dust. To keep your skin clean you must have certain products at your home like- a good face wash, cleanser, toner, face scrub and a peel-off face pack.

#4 Consume Vitamin C

Dust settles in the pores of the skin and until and unless your skin becomes healthy from inside you will not be able to combat the permanent dust settlement on your skin. Vitamin C helps in rejuvenating skin, treats UV rays and keeps the skin healthy.

To include Vitamin C in your diet you do not have to rely on tablets but can include them in a natural way by adding vitamin C rich foods. Some of vitamin C rich foods are – guava, red pepper, orange, strawberries, kiwi, and blackcurrant.

#5 Moisturize it right

Do you know that moisturizing your skin plays a very important role in keeping the skin clean and dust free? Dry skin can be very harmful to the skin and cleansing also requires right moisture to keep up with all the dirt.

A well-moisturized skin is healthy and keeps it from wrinkling or aging early. The best moisturizing products include- good moisturizing lotion, night cream, exfoliator and essential oils. The best way to moisturize skin is to wash and clean the face and then moisturize the skin with the products mentioned especially at night.

Final Thoughts

Dust can be a very big issue in a country like India but if handled with smart care it gets easier to handle. Once you take proper care and use all the products that are mentioned in the blog you will be able to protect your skin from the dust in the correct way. So do not go out in the open without taking proper care of your skin.

Favourite Red Carpet Looks from Oscars 2018

I am extremely late with this post. My apologies for the delay. There are some things that you can’t stop following off and on the internet. Red Carpet Looks! I am a person who waits to see who wore what when. Not kidding! Part and parcel of being a fashion and lifestyle blogger maybe or because I love fashion and clothes.

Just like every year, before the stage is set and the host Jimmy Kimmel kickstarts the Oscars 2018, all eyes run automatically to the red carpet. It is the most important part of The Oscars unarguably. From Jennifer Garner to Zendaya and many more.

Scroll down to see my favorites from The Oscars 2018 Red Carpet.

Bindi Girl

“What’s that dot?” – You ask!

I was once told that bindis are graceful embellishment worn by women throughout Asia during the ancient times. The bindi that’s placed in between two eyebrows symbolizes the seat of power, control, and wisdom. We are in the 21st century and are still fighting for empowerment and equality. Whereas we have forgotten that charity begins at home. Instead of fighting with the society, we should fight it out with ourselves because it’s you who is going to bring that change and the cause you fight for will only be understood if you have changed the way you want the society to look like. I have met in numerous amount of people who talk powerfully about feminism but then the moment they go back home, it’s the same cat and dog game that they play (which is exactly the opposite of feminism).

What is feminism? – The advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.

My advice to all the fake feminists? Be a feminist only if you think is right and not because you think it sounds cool. It’s ok if you are not feminist, at least you aren’t a fake one. Read articles and understand the actual meaning. Similarly, this is also for all those new bloggers who don’t understand the meaning of “blogging” because it’s all about styling and not about just wearing random clothes and posing. Reading articles is always the best way to educate yourself.

Apologies for taking the feminist detour from the style post. Coming back to it. I don’t understand why we should restrict these Indian/Asian adornments to only Indian attire. I am in love with these traditional round bindis and if asked, I would wear it with every outfit. These days modern bindis come in all shapes and various colors. In this post, I styled my red off-shoulder top with black palazzos. I decided to keep it simple bu just accessorizing the outfit with a pair of earrings and a big black bindi!

Would you wear a bindi with a western outfit?

The Gamcha Vibe

There are times when youtube actually helps you with their step by step tutorials. I have watched different types of tutorial on “how to wear a saree” but I still find it difficult to drape it effortlessly like most of you.

I started buying and collecting sarees recently but otherwise, I would always stay away from it. Little did I know that I would fall in love with this Indian attire. This six yards of awesomeness does wonders. You can style it differently according to any occasion. I would initially restrict myself and wear sarees only for weddings or if asked to. All thanks to me for not knowing how to drape one, I surfed the internet and discovered different and easy ways to drape a saree. If you have been following me since the beginning of The Small Town Blogger, you would have seen various styles on my feed and the blog. I have tried four different ways on the blog so far.

This gamcha saree was one of the sarees I got myself for Durga Puja last year. I found the gamcha print very imposing and unique. This particular handloom is soft and unruly but easy to drape, unlike other sarees.

Here, I tried to style this vibrant orange gamcha saree with a plain white label life blouse that I have worn earlier in one of my blog posts. You would have realised by now that I can’t drape a saree the traditional way. Therefore, I decided to give this soft cotton gamcha saree a lazy vibe by draping it the way I did. I think it makes a perfect day-out outfit on a lazy sunny Sunday afternoon. And the orange tinted pair of sunglasses matched perfectly with the outfit, giving it a “dum maro dum” feel.

What do you think?
