Applying a day cream or moisturiser during the day does more for your skin than you can imagine. Apart from keeping skin hydrated, day creams also protect it from environmental aggressors that can hamper the colour and texture.

Apply sunscreen all year round

Apply sunscreen all year round

No matter what your skin type or season of the year is, skipping sunscreen is the biggest beauty sin you could commit. As soon as you complete your morning CTM routine, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen all over the face, neck, ears, hands and feet. If you have oily skin, opt for a non-oily formula — but never go a day without sunscreen.

Never rub your skin vigorously while removing makeup as this can damage your skin in the long run. Be gentle while removing makeup; use micellar water as it helps loosen the makeup particles so that they can be wiped off easily.

Don't forget eye cream

Your eye area is quite delicate and needs special care; so while you may be taking utmost care of your facial skin, don't forget the eye area. Puffy eyes with lines and wrinkles can make you look older than your age; therefore, include an eye cream with nourishing ingredients in your nighttime skincare routine to keep your eyes looking bright and youthful.
