Step 01: After cleansing and toning, make sure you apply a hydrating moisturiser. Pick one that’s lightweight and adds a surge of moisture into the skin. The Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser is a gently, hydrating formula that works for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Step 02: Now, pick a lightweight foundation, one that glides on the skin and blends effortlessly. The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation is smooth and soft making it perfect for daily use.
