Great skin is a result of regular skincare habits and a healthy lifestyle. Basic skin care routine essentially consists of these three steps.
- Cleansing – Removing all the dirt and impurities from the skin that we continuously accumulate from the environment.
- Toning – Balancing the skin
- Moisturizing – Hydrating the skin
The key purpose of following a good skin care routine is simply to reveal your best natural skin and a glowing complexion.
Regular exfoliation combined with a regime of CTM (Cleansing, Toning &moisturizing) can take you a long way in your skincare journey.
Let’s begin with the skin care regime, step-by-step
First and the foremost thing to do is to remove all the dirt and impurities that your skin has taken from the outer environment. It is essential to cleanseyour skin twice or thrice a day, so as to remove the environmental pollutants and dirt that clog the pores. Impure skin is the root of almost all skin related problems including acne.
Cleansing the skin is straight-forward. But it is advisable to use natural cleansers that gently remove impurities and make-up without disrobing the skin of its natural oils. Chemical based cleaners are usually harsh and after the use, your skin is more likely to become dry.
Toning is the next tiny yet important step of daily skin care regime. Apply a few drops of a gentle herbal toner, with the help of cotton dub. Spread it all over the face evenly. A facial tonercleans the skin thoroughly and helps remove dead skin cells from the surface.It also removes excess dirt, traces of oil and makeup residues on the skin and correct and balance the pH of your skin. So, this is a “not to miss” step of your everyday regime.
