Beauty serving size: How much of these skincare products do you actually need?

If you think excessive slathering of skincare products will make them more effective, think again. Using more product than required won’t quicken the results you’re expecting instead they will just harm your wallet. But no one ever told you how much is too much, right? That’s exactly what we will discuss today. Let’s explore the beauty serving size – skin edition.


Moisturiser: An almond

Night cream: A blueberry

While moisturising is essential too much of it can leave your skin feeling greasy and oily. Instead take an almond size of the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Day Crème, dot it all over your face and neck and rub gently until absorbed.


Cleanser: A hazelnut

Night cream: A blueberry

Believe it or not but using cleanser the size of a hazelnut is enough when diluted with a few drops of water to cleanse your entire face. Use your fingertips to gently massage the Dove Inner Glow Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser into the skin for 30 seconds and wash off.


Sunscreen: One grape per body part

Night cream: A blueberry

Slathering extra sunscreen on your body won’t offer extra sun protection. Instead take a grape size portion of the Lakmé  Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Gel Sunscreen for each body part.


Face mask: A cherry tomato

Night cream: A blueberry

Pore refining or clay based masks can rob moisture off your skin and make it extremely dry if over-applied. Use only a cherry tomato size of the Lakme Strawberry Blush & Glow Mask for the whole face to get the best results. 


Night cream: A blueberry

Night cream: A blueberry

Your skin can only absorb a certain amount of product, any excess product goes to waste or in the case of a night cream goes to your pillow case. Stay within the size of a blueberry when applying the Ponds Gold Radiance Youthful Night Cream and wake up with glowing and soft skin.
