Read it till the end to find out answers to everyday skincare related concerns and pro-tips that you may want to look out for.
This blog will answer a few important questions that people generally have regarding skincare.
- Skincare products that suit different issues and requirements.
- What is the correct order of a night time skincare routine?
Following a skincare routine is a form of commitment towards self-love and care. It not only nurtures your skin to look more smooth and youthful on the outside but also boosts your self-confidence.
Please note that you cannot expect immediate results after using any skincare product. This is a long term commitment that involves using products regularly over longer periods.
Always double cleanse. This is the best and only way to start your night time skincare. Remove any makeup that you might have with a cleansing balm or makeup removing wipes.
After your face is free of makeup, use your everyday gentle face wash to remove excess dirt without stripping your face off from natural oils.
Use a hydrating toner for settling your skin after that rub and scrub from cleansing. Allow the skin to absorb the toner before proceeding to the next step.
Medicated Topical Gel or Cream
If you are using any prescribed gel or cream for a specific skin concern, use it on the targeted area. That is also known as spot treatment.
Use serums or concentrated oils that have the desired amount of hyaluronic acid and retinol.
Disclaimer: Talk to a dermatologist and do your own research before starting with retinol or any product that can cause skin irritation. Check with the percentages too.
Any night time routine is incomplete without an eye cream. Invest in a good eye cream and apply it with the teeniest pressure to combat dark circles, puffy, tired looking, and wrinkly eyes.
The last and final step to a night time skincare routine is moisturizing for healthy looking supple skin when you wake up in the morning.
Pro-tip: Do not forget your neck while moisturizing.
Remember, skincare is a commitment. Start by finding out your skin type and stick to a night time routine that suits you best. Start with double cleansing, toner, serum, eye cream and finally moisturizing.
Know that too many products doesn’t equal good skin. High end products also do not equal good skin. Find the right products and right amount that suit you best.
