Make sunscreen your life-long best friend
Investing in and experimenting with new, luxurious and fancy skincare is nothing without including sunscreen in your daily skincare regimen. Not just in summers, sunscreen is beneficial all through the year. The harsh UV rays can have long-term effect on your skin, leading to premature ageing. It is therefore ideal to slather on some before stepping out in the sun. Get your hands on the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte SPF 50 PA+++ Lotion that blocks harmful UV sunrays and protects skin from sun damage such as sun spots and skin darkening.
Get rid of your makeup as soon as you get home
Well, this is not much to ask for, right? Your skin needs to breathe, too! Therefore, as soon as you return home, the first thing you should do is cleanse your face and get rid of all the dirt, grime and makeup that has built up on it. Grab the Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water that’ll leave your skin feeling fresh and instantly hydrated.
Reach out for an eye cream at least once a day
Did you know? The area under your eyes is the first to show signs of ageing and is the most fragile area of the face. Apart from using a face cream, it’s best to invest in an eye cream and apply it at least once a day. Your 30-year old self will thank you for taking this resolution while in your 20s!
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate
From acne to inflamed pores, exfoliation is the answer to most of your skin concerns. Exfoliating regularly will prevent your skin from bacteria, sweat and dirt that is getting stuck underneath your skin’s surface. For proper skin cell turnover and cleansing, you need to rid your skin’s surface of those dead skin cells that are ruining the texture of your skin. Try the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub that treats dull skin and brings back its radiance.
A face mask a day keeps all the grime away
Before you hit the bed, make it a habit to treat your skin to a hydrating face mask. Face masks make for the best skin treatments. They hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores. They're also an excellent way to help pull out impurities.
