Whether you are someone who likes to wear make-up or even if you prefer keeping it natural, skin care is important for everyone. Be it foundations, glosses or dust and dirt our skin is constantly under a layer of foreign particles.
To combat this, we bring to you a small five minute routine that will keep your skin healthier.
Step 1 – Cleaning:
Use a face wash that matches your skin type.
For dry skin: Ideally use something with cucumber extracts, as these keep your skin hydrated. Also, avoid using hot water to wash your face.
For normal skin: People with normal skin can use the same routine as people with dry skin. It’s all good as long as your skin is kept hydrated.
For oily skin: Use foam based face wash, as this helps keep the excess oil out.
Step 2 – Toning:
Now that your face is clean, you need to use a hydrating toner to close any pores that the face wash may have opened up. Toners also help soothe and smoothen your skin.
For dry skin: Stay away from toners that have ethanol in it.
For normal skin: Use refreshing toners during summer and hydrating toners during winter.
For oily skin: Use toners with AHAs and salicylic acid content in it.
Step 3 – Moisturizing:
The final step in skin care is also the most important one. Whether you are going to bed at night o
r getting ready to head out; do not miss this step.
If you are about to apply makeup, use a moisturizer before you apply foundation. Your primer is not a moisturizer, it only helps your makeup last longer.
The key to healthy skin is to make this routine a habit. Remember beautiful skin does not happen by accident!
