I want to share my daily skin care routine with you which would benefit your skin in your hectic schedule.
1.Cleansing -Cleaning is the first step to any skin care routine. Cleaning the skin removes oil, dirt, sweat and other pollutants that skin naturally collects throughout the day.
Steps to do – cleaning skin twice a day is really important for your skin. Use face wash which suits your skin type. I use Himalaya and Ponds facewash.
Avoid using bar soaps on your skin, as they tend to dry out your skin.
2.Toner – Many people think toner is not necessary for daily skin care routine. But toning is a part of daily skin care routine which benefits your skin. After face wash, toner removes the dirt left behind by cleansing as well as oil, makeup your cleanser might have missed. Toner minimizes the appearance of pores.
Don’t use harsh or citrus – based toners as they can damage sensitive skin.
3.Scrub – New skin cells build up on the surface of our skin everyday and it has to be removed by scrubbing.
Exfoliating is really important for your skin. It helps remove dead skin cells, blackheads, acne and breakouts.
It’s best to use any scrub that suits your skin after toning and before moisturizing. You can avoid daily scrubbing your face and do only twice a week. Depending on your skin types .
St. Ives gentle smoothing oatmeal scrub & mask is highly recommended.
4.Moisturizing – Moisturizing your skin twice a day is really important for all skin types. Mosturizing locks moisture and protects your skin, keeping your skin hydrated and is a mandatory part of your daily skin care routine. Choose moisturizer that suits your skin types – it can be cream, gel/lotion or oil based.
5.Sunscreen – Sunscreen is most essential daily skin care routine before you leave your home. Sun is the most dangerous factor for your skin. Sun makes your skin tanned and can cause cancer. That’s why using sun screen with SPF 15 to 20 is a must,it keeps protecting your skin from sun damaging from UV rays .
Lotus herbal and Lakme sunscreen.
6.Under eye cream – Under eye cream is necessary for those having puffy eye and dark circles .
I use Vlcc almond under eye cream for daily use.
7.Lip balm – Lip balm is necessary to moisturize your lips. Lips tend to get dry and rough. Lips balm moisturizes and soothens your lips.
I use Nivea lip balm for daily use.
This is my daily skin care routine which helps me a lot keeping my skin healthier and glowing.
