The arrival of a new year is the ideal time to kick a wide range of lifestyle changes into action, and the Deccan Chronicle has published a list to help give people some inspiration. Foremost among its suggestions is getting into an 'early to bed, early to rise' habit, as, it notes, it is one of the most effective ways of combating the effects of stress on the body and skin. Other changes it suggests could be timely include: - Kicking junk food out of the diet, and upping your fruit intake - Looking into boosting your skin by using treatments such as hyaluronic acid-based treatments such as Dermal Fillers. By restoring the levels of the acid in the skin's upper layers, they can minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a youthful glow to the skin, notes article author Dr Deepti Dhillon. - Checking out the possible benefits of other revitalisation treatments, such as Laser Skin Tightening and Skin Peels. - Routinely using a moisturiser and sunscreen - Remembering to remove all make-up before going to bed - And possibly, for the dedicated, taking up yoga and meditation to help reduce stress.
