Adopting a good skincare routine early on can help prevent your skin from several skin concerns such as pigmentation, blackheads, large pores and acne. And we here to help you with just that. Follow these simple steps to keep your skin looking clear and healthy for years to come.

Cleansing is an essential step in any skincare routine. However, ensure you thoroughly cleanse your face twice every day to prevent unwanted skin problems. Choose a face wash specifically formulated for acne-prone skin. The Ponds Pimple Clear Face Wash targets pimples at the source and helps clear the skin in a short span of time.

Now is the right time to start inculcating good skincare habits that you will follow all through your life. One of the biggest culprits behind most skin concerns is the harmful rays of the sun. Wearing a sunscreen with a minimum SPF value of 30, such as the Lakme Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 30 PA++ Lotion will protect your skin without leaving it oily or greasy.

 

Use makeup only when necessary

Discovering the world of makeup can be quite exciting, plus you would want to conceal all your skin problems too. But we advise using makeup only when necessary, for an important day or event. Your skin is still delicate and wearing makeup every day without knowing which formula or brand works best for you can invite a lot of skin problems.

 

Don’t share makeup

Don’t share makeup

As much as you love your girl gang, avoid sharing makeup with them. The oils, germs and dirt from one person can easily get transferred to another and cause skin problems that you never had in the first place.

 

Avoid applying toothpaste on pimples

It might seem like the easiest and most affordable remedy but avoid it at all costs. Toothpaste can be very drying for your skin and certain ingredients can cause allergies too. Even if it subsides the pimple, it will leave a dark spot that won’t fade easily.
