Flawless skin is every woman’s dream, and with the festive season round the corner, everyone surely wants to look their prettiest. However, flawless skin cannot be achieved in one day or a week. So, start investing time daily in a skincare regimen for better results. Here’s what you need to
Cleanse first: Always make sure you wash your face before applying makeup. Choose a soap-free face cleanser with natural ingredients like Aloe Vera and Neem.
Tone it up: After cleansing, use a toner. Toning is the best way to prepare your skin to face the day. It firms up the skin and prevents acne.
Must moisturise: Moisturising seals in water, which is essential for supple and younger looking skin. Look for moisturisers that contain time-tested herbal ingredients like aloe vera, which hydrates, winter cherry that helps your skin cells to regenerate and grape extracts, which fight early signs of aging.
Scrub away: Healthy skin constantly renews and regenerates itself. To help this process along, it is vital to eliminate dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Use an exfoliating facial scrub made of apricot, neem or walnut twice a week to get rid of these dead cells.
Of masks and peels: Deep cleansing once a week with an herbal facial mask will unclog pores, draw out impurities, tone and hydrate your skin. However, don’t be harsh. Use gentle scrubs made of papaya and cucumber.
