We all have our skincare routines set or rather routines that we cheat on for that few extra minutes of sleep in the morning as well as at night. You don’t need a lot of products to achieve flawless skin, only the right ones to get the work done. Serum is one such product that most women skip from their skincare routines, particularly because of the lack of knowledge on when and how to use it.
Today, we will tell you exactly how to add serums to both your morning and night skincare routines.
Your AM routine
Step 1: Cleanser
The first step to any skincare routine is getting rid of all the dirt and grime sitting on your face. Use a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type to wash off all the accumulated dirt without losing the skin’s natural moisture.
Step 2: Toner
Using a toner is as important as any other step in your skincare routine. The Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner is an alcohol free toner and therefore does not dry out your skin but clarifies and nourishes to make it look more plump and clean.
Step 3: Serum
Now that your skin is thoroughly cleansed, it’s time to pat some serum onto your face and allow your skin to absorb it. Serums are highly concentrated formulas designed to address a specific skin concern, during the day opt for serums such as the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Serum to get rid of dull skin or the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum to hydrate dry and parched skin.
Step 4: Moisturiser
Last but not the least, no matter what your skin type it needs hydration and moisturising all year round. Moisturizers are essential to keep your skin healthy and maintain its protective barrier to fight external conditions. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Day Creme SPF 20 protects skin from dust and pollution and prevents sun damage.
Your PM routine
Step 1: Cleanser
Removing makeup, dirt and oil that have collected all through the day is essential, it also allows your skin to finally breathe.
Step 2: Exfoliator
Washing your face only removes surface dirt, to get rid of dirt set deep into the pores it is important to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. Use a gentle exfoliator and don’t rub too hard as it can destroy healthy skin cells.
Step 3: Toner
Pour few drops of the Lakmé Absolute Pore Fix Toner on a cotton pad and swipe over cleansed face. This picks up the residue dirt and makeup that your cleanser and exfoliator couldn’t get rid of, leaving you with squeaky clean and healthy looking skin.
Step 4: Serum
Serums work like magic potions when your body is at rest. The Lakmé Absolute Youth Infinity Skin Sculpting Serum and the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-serum are specifically formulated to use at night. Use these highly concentrated formulas before going to bed to reap maximum benefits.
