If adhering to a skincare routine is the real problem, it doesn’t matter how many bucks you have spent on those half-used beauty products you’re still waiting to reap the benefits of. With a lifestyle of the 21st century, pollution and sun damage rush in to destroy your skin every single day and if you do not commit to protecting it, it will eventually succumb to destruction.
Your skin covers your entire body, fights against UV radiation, and blesses you with the sense of touch. It deserves a healing skincare routine. If you ignore your skin’s need for a skincare regime, you may allow the dullness, signs of premature ageing, and tan to appear on your skin. However, if you religiously follow a six-step skincare routine, especially for tanned skin, ‘forever young’ won’t be a foreign term to you anymore.
It’s even better if you’re committed to ayurvedic products because they’re more healing in nature and you won’t be exposing your tanned skin to synthetic chemicals.
It is understandable that not everyone has hours to invest in a skincare routine, so allow us to suggest a simple yet highly effective skincare routine for you!
Face Cleansing: Cleansing your skin properly is one of the most important steps of the morning and evening routine as it helps you remove impurities gathered from the makeup and pollution off your face. For choosing the best cleanser for your skin, you must know your skin type. There are different types of cleansers available in the market. Knowing your skin type will help you pick the right type of cleanser that will heal your skin rather than leading it to breakouts or dryness.
Oil-based cleansers swipe off the makeup easily but if you have oily or acne-prone skin, it may lead to breakouts. Water or gel-based cleansers can make you feel refreshing but if your skin is already dry, it might make it feel the stretch and dryness even more.
It is best to have a mild face wash like Silksplash Rehydrant Face Wash for daily use. It cleans without stripping away the moisture which makes it suitable for all skin types. It is also packed with healing ingredients like neem, sandal, cucumber, aloe vera, bitter orange, herbs, and more.
Toning: Toner is applied to restore the low pH of the skin after you wash it with a high pH cleanser. However, if you’re already using a low-pH cleanser, you do not need a toner. It targets the main concern such as the appearance of pores and dullness. While in earlier days, toners were known to be stinging and harsh, things have changed.
If you have normal or dry skin, we recommend you use Sacred Lotus - Green Tea Skin Recovery Toner. This alcohol-free toner is loaded with antioxidants and hydrating ingredients.
If your skin is oily or combination, rely on Pomegranate Mandarin Pore Refining Tonique. It helps in minimising the appearance of enlarged pores.
You can tone once a day if you have oily skin but if your skin is sensitive, once a week toning is enough.
Exfoliating: As you age, the replenishing process of your skin slows down. Dead skin cells aren’t replaced by new skin cells as often. This may result in the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, and dullness. The process of exfoliation can help the skin to get rid of dead cells and reveal the fresh skin cells.
For your ayurvedic skincare routine, use Livelyclean Honey Exfoliating Face Cleansing Gel. It will not only help in removing the dead skin cells but will also improve the texture of your skin. Packed with the goodness of healing cold-pressed oils, this cleansing gel is lightweight and best for oily or combination skin. Exfoliating once a week gives good results.
You can also use Petalsoft Anti-tan Rose Face Pack to provide a healing treatment to your tanned skin once a week. This mask helps you to remove sun tan and repair sun damage which makes it perfect for summers.
Eye-care: The skin around your eyes is more delicate when compared to the rest of your face. You cannot use your regular skin products around your eyes. Your eye care product needs to be more gentle and capable of treating the main issue such as dark circles, puffiness, or fine lines.
I’clear Green Tea-Cucumber Nourishing Under Eye Gel is formulated to soothe your under-eye puffiness and lighten the dark circles. It’s best suited for oily or combination skin. But if you have dry or sensitive skin, you must use I’brite Almond-Green Tea Nourishing Under Eye Cream.
Moisturising: To the second-most important step of the routine. Moisturiser is the food your skin needs to look glowy and healthy. With age, the production of sebum reduces in your skin which means you need a moisturiser that locks in the natural skin moisture and also, nourishes your skin for a more youthful appearance. Herbal Nourishing Massage Cream is suitable for dry or normal skin.
It’s deeply moisturising and ideal for daily use. It’ll keep your skin hydrated and will restore youthfulness, dynamism, and radiance.
JH Tip: Apply a serum packed with vitamin A, C, and E before moisturising for maximum absorption of the moisturiser.
SPF: As nourishing as your moisturiser is, it alone cannot protect you from sun tan in the daytime so make sure you have some SPF on before you leave the house in the morning.
For normal to dry skin, you can use Sun’nil Jojoba-Grapeseed Moisturising Sun Protection Lotion. It will help moisturise your skin along with protecting it from the sun damage.
If your skin is oily or combination, try Nosun Jojoba-Wheatgerm Moisturising Sun Protection Gel. This gel protects your skin against the Sun without making it greasy.
The best part about committing to an ayurvedic skin regime is that you can skip uneasy factors like itchiness, irritation, chemical damage, and side effects and get straight to the healing and pampering. You can trust the herbs and mostly-plant-based ingredients more than the chemical compositions.
