What is your morning skin care ritual like? We know, washing your face and slapping on some moisturiser and running out of the door!
No! It is time to break the age-old routine and take a good close look at what your skin wants! And your skin wants a LOT more.
Ask any dermatologist, and they will tell you, a good complexion is down to the way you care for your skin and not just on the fancy products you lap on.
And between the snooze button and late hours, we know it is hard. That is precisely why, we've curated this five-step morning skin care ritual that guarantees an elusive golden glow with each day.
Follow these steps for two weeks, without a miss, and we promise, you will see a noticeable difference in the way your skin looks and feels.
Without further ado, let's get started!
Cleanse your face. And not with a cleanser, but plain water. It will clean away any night-time residue, dirt and bacteria from your skin, drying it off.
Exfoliate. Stay away from rough granule scrubs, as they are harsh on the skin. A simple wash cloth can do the job just as fine. Run a wash cloth in warm water, wring out the excess and rub it on your skin gently in a circular motion with it. Start from the nose, work your way outwards to the cheek, temple and chin areas. Cleanse again.
Tone. It does the dual job of balancing the pH level of your skin and keeping it from getting dehydrated. It creates a canvas for the next step to absorb the ingredients into the skin better. If you want to go herbal, we suggest you use rose water to tone the skin.
Serum. It tends to have active ingredients than a moisturiser and targets specific problems like black spots or wrinkles. Massage your skin with a compatible serum, preferably the one enriched with vitamin C.
Mix in an equal quantity of a moisturiser with SPF and massage it on to your skin, using upward strokes. Keep doing it for 2 minutes, until it gets fully soaked into the skin.
