You may not understand everything there is to understand about professional skincare. All the products that claim to be world’s number 1, the cumbersome home remedies and endless tips and tricks on the internet can get a tad confusing. Today, we help you clear the clutter and give you some pro-tips that are a piece of cake and will give you the perfect skin you always wanted.
First thing’s first, you need to master the basic Cleansing – Toning – Moisturizing (CTM) routine. Although it will take some amount of trial and error, but when you do find the right cleanser, toner and moisturizer for your skin, it will all seem worth it. When you are done forming this base, move on to the following tips.
1. Say Hello To Serum
Even when we follow the CTM routine religiously, we skip serum writing it off as an unnecessary addition to an already thorough skincare regime. It’s time you reconsidered. Skin serum is an essential if you want to fight the signs of ageing. The formulation of serums is such that it is easily absorbed into your skin allowing the useful skincare ingredients to penetrate deeper into the pores and deliver optimal benefits.
CashKaro Recommends: Olay
Trust Olay India to deliver reliable solutions for ageing, darkening, drying and other skin woes. Try the Regenerist Regenerating Serum for visibly smooth, hydrated skin. The lightweight formula not only restores the skin’s elasticity but also exfoliates it to remove impurities and keep the skin looking youthful for years to come.
2. Exfoliate Before You Cleanse
Skincare regimes are highly subjective and what works for one might prove disastrous for someone else. Even so, we recommend exfoliating first, cleansing next. You might find this counterintuitive (am I not pushing dirt and impurities deeper into the skin by exfoliating first?). No. Slough off the dead-skin and dirt through exfoliation first before going on to the next step. Make sure you use gentle sweeping motions to avoid skin irritation.
Do not forget to remove dead skin from your lips by exfoliating them as well. Use a kids toothbrush and some Vaseline to gently exfoliate the sensitive skin of your lips.
3. Pre-Slumber Face Wash
The daily dirt and grime does not sit well with your skin. It accumulates in your pores along with make-up, creams and dead skin cells. Let them stay put overnight and you will be left with unsightly breakouts and inflammation. If you have dry skin, make sure you use a gentle face wash which removes the dirt without leaving the skin stretchy.
CashKaro Recommends: Dove
Dove India provides you with products that cleanse and care for your skin. Try the Dove Beauty Moisture Facewash that cleanses deeply and replenishes the moisture for softer, hydrated skin every day. Oily skin beauties can try the Dove Go Fresh Face Wash Oily Skin Care which removes dirt and excess sebum from your pores.
4. Use Sunscreen Even If You Are Indoors
Even if your daily routine entails staying in for the most part, it is not a good idea to forego the sunscreen. UVA and UVB rays can penetrate even through windows and cause tans and burns. Avoid sun damage by applying a sunscreen that suits you each day of the week, whether you’re inside or out.
CashKaro Reccomends: Lotus Herbals
Formulated especially for Indian skin, Lotus Herbals India brings to sunscreens for all skin types. If you have oily skin and shudder at the thought of greasy sunscreens, go for the Lotus Safe Sun Matte Gel which gives you SPF 50 protection and a delightful non-greasy finish.
5. Never Underestimate The Power Of Good Nutrition
Finally, none of the above tips will help unless you remain mindful of the food you put inside your body. Oily foods, chocolates and fizzy drinks can all be blamed for skin trouble like breakouts and early ageing. Incorporate foods that contain vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. If you want to binge, binge on fruits and vegetables. If you want to indulge, indulge in the occasional piece of dark chocolate. Snack on dry fruits and nuts. All these foods will make sure your skin receives the right nutrition to stay healthy on the inside, so your skincare regime can work on the outside.
It’s time to realize all your gorgeous skin dreams!
