01. Protect, Protect, Protect
SPF is a must, no matter which season we’re in! UVA and UVB rays cause damage to the skin to nullify all the efforts you put into your skincare routine. They exaggerate fine lines and texture, deepen dark spots, and cause premature ageing. In severe cases, it goes beyond attacking your exterior layer and affects your health and immunity too. Make sure you always wear sunscreen, even when you’re at home. Your cell phones and PCs also emit some amount of blue rays that can cause harm to your skin.
Our go-to is the Lakmé Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Lotion Sunscreen. It provides broad-spectrum protection and fights excess oil on the skin to keep you looking fresh and gorgeous!
02. Toner Is A Must
In K-beauty, toner is considered the first step for hydration. It balances your skin’s pH levels and helps the rest of your products seep in better. Include a mild toner like the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner in your morning and night skincare routine. You can either use it on a cotton pad and swipe it on your face or pour some in your palms and pat it onto your skin.
03. Include Vitamin C Serum in Your Routine
We’re pretty sure know all the hype around vitamin C by now. It hydrates, replenishes, repairs your skin and brightens your complexion. Vitamin C is renowned for its brightening qualities that work like a miracle to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It also works beautifully to fight sun damage. Include a lightweight vitamin C serum like the Lakmé 9 to 5 Vitamin C+ Facial Serum in your routine. Use it twice a day and top it with your favourite moisturiser and sunscreen.
04. Use Hyaluronic Acid To Hydrate Your Skin
If you struggle with dull skin, hyaluronic acid is the best ingredient for you. It retains water in your skin and helps promote healthy cell activity. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for keeping your skin soft and hydrated all day long. Include a hyaluronic acid-infused moisturiser in your skincare routine for best results. and use it as the second step (post toner) in your skincare routine. The Lakme Absolute Hydra Pro Gel Crème locks in hydration, improves skin texture, and reduces moisture loss, making your skin look fresh and dewy.
05. Regularly Clean Your Makeup Brushes
Your makeup brushes collect quite a lot of dirt and bacteria, even if you aren’t using them daily. Ensure you wash your brushes once a week to keep them clean and germ-free. Dirty brushes harbour bacteria, and when used on your face, can lead to breakouts. In worst cases, this bacteria could cause infections or fester your makeup and cause mould *yikes*.
