– DOUBLE CLEANSING
The first step of cleansing is to remove your makeup with a mild makeup remover. Then further cleanse your face and neck with a mild cleanser to wash off the day’s dirt, grime and remaining makeup. Proper cleansing helps your skin to breathe, and even reduce breakouts and acne.
Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells, deeply embedded impurities and blackheads. It makes your skin soft and supple. Gently scrub your face and neck twice a week. Over scrubbing may harm your skin, so do it gently. To rejuvenate and revitalise your skin, you may also use face pack/ face mask once a week.
Toner is beneficial for all skin types, just select it according to your skin type. It not only helps to tighten up the pores but can also remove the remaining impurities left behind and refreshes your skin. It benefits your acne, scars, wrinkles etc by further cleansing. So better to never skip this step.
Face serum helps to boost the production of collagen and stimulates cell growth. Select the serum according to your skin type and requirement to get a clear, young and wrinkle-free skin. Apply it before moisturising to deeply penetrate into the skin, just take 2-3 drops and apply it all over your face.
– MOISTURISER/NIGHT CREAM
After cleansing and toning, moisturiser is a must for all skin types. While removing dirt and makeup with a cleanser, essential oils also get washed away and make your skin drier.
