Instead of an elaborate skincare routine, understand what your skin needs and protect it in the best way possible. Wondering how to do that? We’ve mentioned a few simple morning and nighttime skin care tips that will make your skin look healthy and youthful.
- Never skimp on moisturiser
- Apply sunscreen all year round
- Exfoliate twice a week
- Carry face mist
- Remove makeup gently
- Always apply serum
- Don't forget eye cream
- Use a sheet mask regularly
Never skimp on moisturiser
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
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.
Exfoliate twice a week
To rejuvenate the skin and get rid of dead cells, it is important to exfoliate your skin — both face and body — at least twice a week. The process of scrubbing also improves blood circulation to reveal smooth and younger-looking skin underneath.
Carry face mist
Carry a face mist with you while going out, especially if you live in a city where the climate is usually hot and humid. It will instantly refresh your skin and give it a surge of moisture. You can also use it to give your makeup look a dewy finish.

Remove makeup gently
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.
Always apply serum
Your night time skincare routine must include a serum as it contains potent ingredients that tackle more than one skin concerns. Most serums contain antioxidants that prevent premature ageing, while the other ingredients work towards making your skin look flawless.

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.
Use a sheet mask regularly
Sheet masks are the ultimate form of pampering; other than hydrating your skin at the deepest level, this incredible product relaxes and rejuvenates you. Use sheet masks at least twice a week while relaxing with a book or glass of wine and see the wonders it does for your skin.
