Your Guide To Healthy And Glowing Skin
A simple beauty routine can help you look your best, regardless of age
Everyone wants a healthy, glowing skin, but there is no magic pill for it. A combination of internal (hormonal) and external (pollution) factors can wreak havoc on your skin. Here is a no-fuss, easy-to-follow skincare regime for a healthy skin.
Cleanse, tone, moisturize
Follow the time-tested CTM routine—cleanse, tone and moisturize. Take care to thoroughly clean your skin to remove impurities and dirt, at least twice a day. Choose a mild cleanser formulated for your skin type and exfoliate to remove the dead skin cells. Pick an alcohol-free toner, so that you don’t rob your skin of its natural oils. Then apply a moisturizer with anti-ageing ingredients to keep your skin happy and hydrated throughout the day.
Always wear a sunscreen. Pick a broad-spectrum sunscreen with UVA and UVB blockers, with a minimum of SPF 30. A sunscreen goes a long way in protecting your skin against sun damage. Carry a tube with you if you are stepping out and reapply every few hours.
Apply moisturizer and day cream
Choose moisturizers and day creams specifically formulated for your skin type. Pick products that contain ‘active’ ingredients. Read the label to check if your product includes antioxidants and essential vitamins. Creams and moisturizers with ingredients like green tea, grape seed or pomegranate extracts can also help rejuvenate your skin. Before hitting the bed, make sure you apply a night cream or a serum to keep your skin hydrated.
Be patient and consistent. Age-defying skin doesn’t happen overnight. Stick religiously to your regimen, which may mean several months of diligently taking care of your skin, till you start seeing the results. Make a commitment to your skin and stick to it.
