There is a wedding this coming weekend and you need to look your absolute best, right? Or you’ve got to attend this big birthday bash, where you want to look nothing less than flawless. But how do you go from fine to flawless in just a week? Forget being difficult, it’s totally possible! It might seem too good to be true, but we’ve got some tricks up our sleeves and some #lifehacks which can change and improve your skin in a week! So bookmark this post and start ticking these off your checklist!
3 Lemons Per Day
Start your day with 2 glasses of hot water, mixed with lemon and honey. Not only does this act as a sort of detox, it also helps in flushing out free radicals and toxins from your body. Lemon contains Vitamin C and various antioxidants while honey is commonly used to treat skin remedies, so the combination together is lethal.
Drink 3 Litres of water everyday
Drinking water helps the body in flushing out excess toxins and keeps the skin well hydrated. Water helps maintain the optimum skin moisture and encourages healthy and glowing skin! Did you know that the more water you drink, the smaller is your pore size?
So keep a water bottle handy, all day all night.
Exfoliate & Moisturise like a Pro
Make this a nightly ritual! Exfoliate your skin using a chemical peel rather than a physical exfoliator. It is more effective, controls oil production, doesn't irritate your skin and gives you glowing skin. We love The Ordinary's AHA 30% BHA 2% Peeling Solution. It cleans out your pores, reduces pigmentation and gives you baby soft skin, all in less than 10 minutes! Did we mention that you only need to use this twice a week?
Follow this with a good serum and moisturiser which suits your skin. Once your skin has soaked up these products, use an eye cream which helps in reducing wrinkles and age spots. We love Laneige Time Freeze Sleeping Mask as a moisturiser for some serious skin transformation.This multitasker can be used for your eyes, face and neck. It reduces pore size over time, need we say more?
Sheet Mask It
Sheet masks are the latest lazy girl hack for skin care, and my oh my are they effective! Buy 7 different face masks, for glowing skin, to prevent anti aging, to smoothen the skin and whatever else you feel your skin requires. Use one every night before you go to bed, for a maximum of half an hour - you’ll see the difference!
Use a Silk Pillowcase & Eye Mask
A pillowcase is more than just a material between your skin and the pillow. It's an effortless 8 hour beauty treatment, every single night!
Silk is known for its anti-ageing benefits, as it is much smoother on the skin than your usual cotton pillow. It helps your skin stay hydrated, doesn't absorb your night creme while you sleep and you wake up looking well rested. Silk pillowcases and eye masks are known to reduce wrinkles , sleep creases and soften your skin. After all, it isn’t called silky smooth for nothing!

Get 8 Hours of Sleep Every Night
Sleep is the most important thing for your body, which in turn affects your over all health and skin. You notice how tired and haggard you look when you wake up after a night of barely any sleep? Yeah, that’s not going to work when you’re trying to improve your skin. Get 8 hours of sleep, religiously.
You needn’t stress about clear hydrated skin before any big function, all you need to do is follow the Dame Essential checklist. We swear by it, and soon you will too.
