01. Make sure to remove your makeup properly
Long workdays mean having makeup sitting on your face for longer hours. Make sure to remove your makeup properly every night before bed, no matter how tired you are. Double cleanse your face every night to get rid of dirt, impurities and product build-up on the face. Start off with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Rinse Off Cleansing Oil to dissolve waterproof makeup, oil buildup and dirt off your face. Follow up with a refreshing cleanse with the Lakmé Blush and Glow Berry Smash Gel Face Wash with Berries Extract for a fruit-kissed glow on your face.
02. Exfoliate twice a week
Exfoliating twice a week can keep your skin feeling fresh and clean. Getting rid of the dead skin cells on your face will make it more receptive to the products you use and keep your complexion even-toned and blemish-free. Use a gentle formula like the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliant to avoid over-stressing your already tired skin.
03. Spritz on a mattifying toner
Your skin’s natural response to excessive stress is overly stimulated oil glands, which make your face oily and greasy throughout the day. The best way to tackle is this by using a mattifying toner like LAKMÉ 9 to 5 Matte Moist Mattifying Moisturiser. for its effective and gentle formula. It refreshes the skin to tighten pores and gives you matte looking skin instantly without leaving it dry.
04. Plop on a sheet mask while relaxing
Use your time well while you are powering down. Plop on a sheet mask for a quick TLC sesh for your skin. Reach for a rejuvenating formula like the Pond’s Skin Brightening Serum Mask. Infused with vitamin E, niacinamide and sea daffodil, this potent mix of ingredients can help fight dullness and give your skin a healthy glow.
05. Sleep with a night treatment on
Allow a night treatment to work on your skin while you sleep. A formula like the Lakmé Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Brightening Night Creme helps to nourish your skin overnight so that you are ready for another day of work with fresh and radiant skin!
