New Delhi: Keeping your skin moisturised is the best way to nourish skin but don’t skip exfoliation or healthy food to maintain the glow of the skin, says an expert.

Here are a few handy tips from Aparna Santhanam, celebrity dermatologist from Marico to make skin radiant:

- Moisturising should be a basic body care regime required to keep your skin refreshed and nourished. Don’t neglect hands and feet.

- Exfoliating your skin twice a week is important to maintain a youthful and brightened look as it removes dead and weary skin. Homemade concoction of crushed oats, honey and sugar grains is one way to do it.

- Eat a balanced diet that consists of fresh fruits, coconut water, avocado and nuts, among other healthy food items

- Apply homemade skin-moisturising face pack too. Mix equal quantities of papaya pulp and honey and massage on the damp face for 15 minutes then wash it off with cold water
