Dry skin is a big concern for many girls. Tackling dry skin is as difficult as dealing with oily skin. The major concerns associated with dry skin are itching and flakiness. Apart from moisturising regularly, you also need to take proper care and follow a daily skin care regimen to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. If clear and healthy-looking skin is your top priority, then it’s time to follow a regimen we bet you won’t regret.
Morning skin care routine
To make your face look fresh, the first thing you need to do as soon as you wake up is splash cool water on your face. Next, grab a moisturising cleanser, such as the Dove Beauty Moisture Conditioning Facial Cleanser to gently cleanse your face with. Follow it with a toner, one which does not dry out your skin. The next step is the most important one – Moisturising. Use the Pond’s Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel all over your skin until it absorbs completely. Then, reach out for a sunscreen of SPF 30 or more if you’re heading out in the sun. We love the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Lotion. If you’re looking at wearing makeup, then it’s best to go minimal. BB creams, tinted moisturisers and concealers make for great options. Ensure that all the makeup you use is moisturising and does not leave any dry patches on your face.
Day skin care routine
Did you know? The harsh sun rays can take a serious toll on your lips, leaving them chapped and dry. Therefore, it’s important that you keep a lip balm handy and reach for it every 2 hours during the day. Get your hands on the Lakmé Lip Love Lip Balm to keep your lips smooth all day long.
It is also important to consume foods that are rich in antioxidants. They not only make your skin healthy from within, but also protect it from free radical damage. Ditch fried foods for raw and boiled food items.
Night skin care routine
Night time skin care routines are crucial. Leaving a nourishing mask or oil on overnight helps heal your skin quickly while making your face look fresh in the mornings.
As soon as you’re home, splash warm water on your face and get rid of all the makeup with a cleansing oil or makeup remover. You can use the Lakmé Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover that’ll leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated. Next, cleanse your face the same way you did in the morning and follow it up with a nourishing night cream, such as, the Lakmé 9to5 Naturale Night Crème which is sure to keep your skin moisturised throughout the night. Last, but not least, get a good 7-8 hours of sleep.
