I am glad that you liked my previous posts. Thanks for the much-needed motivation 🙂
We all are aware that CTM-Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing, is the key to achieve a beautiful and problem-free skin. The biggest mind-block we have as homo sapiens is that we consider fair skin as beautiful and the beauty-quotient decreases as the complexion moves towards the duskier side :/ Beauty has no color!
Every skin goes through damages caused by pollution, dust, hormonal changes, etc.It has its own requirements and it has to be fed right to achieve desired results. We all have our own skin care routine that we follow every day. Fact is, a well-hydrated skin looks beautiful irrespective of the melanin content!
A proper CTM routine is a must for both men and women and is an essential part of grooming. Here is a short description on a bunch of CTM products that can be adopted by anyone. I shall be reviewing them individually later in my blog.
Cleaning the skin is the primary step towards any skincare routine. We all have our own HG cleanser or face wash, that suits our skin. Neutrogena deep clean foaming cleanser perfectly does the job of washing away all the impurities from the skin. Its a creamy high-foaming cleanser and can be used by both men and women safely. It is recommended to clean the face twice a day for better results. Buy this HERE!
Scrubbing 2-3 times a week is important to remove the dead-cells and deposits on the skin. I`ve used many scrubs but finally my quest ended at Patanjali Apricot Face Scrub. It has perfectly sized apricot granules in a creamy scrub and the best part is it smells great too! A good 5 minute circular-motion massage is good to improve the blood circulation to our face and thereby achieving soft and glowing skin.
Toning the skin is another important step in the CTM routine. A toner clears any residue left behind after the cleansing+scrubbing process. I found this rose toner from Kama Ayurveda quite effective. Kama Ayurveda Pure Rose Water is a 100% organic toner made of rose petals. I spray it every now and then to keep my skin hydrated. It can be directly sprayed upon the skin or can be dabbed on a cotton ball. Thanks to Fabbag for introducing me to this fabulous product 🙂
Moisturizer serves as the food to the skin and so investing in a good moisturizer can never be a bad investment. Here, I`ve included Clean & Clear Moisturiser in my list for its effectiveness and suitability for both men and women. It’s a myth that oily-skinned people can skip moisturizer in their daily skincare routine. This moisturizer gets absorbed easily and nourishes the skin, preventing breakouts and giving it a mild glow. Oily-skinned beauties can try it without any fear, while dry-skinned beauties can also use this, as it won`t dry the skin even if it doesn`t hydrate enough!
Harmful rays from the Sun can cause free radicals that damage the skin and makes one look older. Sunscreens make a protective-layer on the skin and prevent it from damages caused by harmful UV rays. The most trusted sunscreen in India is Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-In-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock SPF-40. Applying it before stepping out in the Sun has to be religiously followed every day. In fact, our skin is damaged by indirect sunlight too. Hence it is advisable to wear sunscreen all the time during the day.
Tip for life: Rub a slice of tomato on your face, neck and hands. Keep it on for 5 minutes and then wash it before you get ready to go out. This will save the skin from tanning and UV rays!
CTM and stay beautiful!
