The reason you are having a lot of problems with your skin is because of lack of care and attention you give to it. One should take care of skin from a very young age and choose the right products.If you haven’t started yet,it is never too late.

Tips:

Buy Products that are labelled specifically for your skin type , Dry,Normal , Oily or Sensitive.

My skin type and age for your reference:

I have a combination to oily skin, more on oily in Summers and dry during winters. I am 36 years old and so have all the reasons to be taking care of skin. 😛

My Day time skincare Routine:

  1. Face Wash: 

I am using by the brand Herbal Essentials http://www.herbal-essentials.com/

I use face wash for obvious reasons. 😀 Wash out all the dirt! Not much explanation needed here, because the more we get into technicalities, the more you’ll run away.

2. Face Toner: 

I am using by the brand Herbal Essentials http://www.herbal-essentials.com/

This is what I always tell my followers, in a very easy way, that when washing face, the thin layer on top of our skin that naturally protects the skin from dirt is removed hence, face toner is used so that layer is replaced. Apart from this, face toner penetrates skin and suck out the remaining dirt that face wash couldn’t remove.

tip:

Use cotton pad to apply. Press on to skin while applying so the products penetrates inside pores.

3. Anti-Shine Serum

I am using by the brand WoMn Cosmetics click HERE to check.

I love using this anti-shine serum esp in this very hot weather as it controls the production of sebum as well as hydrate at the same time. Skin feels very soft and supple esp after an hour of application, it feels heavenly. Good news is, it can be used as a primer too by applying 10 to 15 minutes before makeup. This little monster just keeps my skin non-greasy through out the day!

4. Moisturizer :

I am using by the brand Botanics bought from Boots Pharmacy. I pretty much switch my moisturizer all the time from brand to brand depending on my requirement.

Moisturizer is the heart of skin care in my point of view. That’s just because there is no way , your skin can look good without moisture. Dry and dehydrated skin is so not appealing and invites early wrinkles , so I have a lot of moisturizers. I won’t apply it only once but every time when I feel my skin needs it again.

5. Eye Gel/Cream: 

My current favorite is by the brand Derma-e (www.vitaminshop.ae) and Herbal Essentials.

We all know wrinkles would start appearing around the eyes, so this for me is that area I cannot neglect. Press the products gently into the socket of eyes to deal with puffiness, fine lines and sometimes dark circles by keeping it hydrated. Can be replaced with Argan oil or Coconut oil.

6. Lip Balm: 

Does is sound too much already? Well, not really. Your skin deserves to be treated really well so give it your best. Using lip balm helps with cracked and dry lips esp for those into matte lipsticks.

The secret to youthful, tight, supple and fresh skin:

Exfoliating skin using face scrubs regularly followed by mask is very important. By exfoliating, you actually are removing those unwanted dead skin for a new fresh skin to come. Never miss the mask, apply right after scrubbing as it gives your skin all the goodness you want.

My favorite scrub and mask combination is the WoMn Vanilla & Lemon Face & Lip scrub and WoMn Get the Glow mask with Veena. It is organic which means NO CHEMICALS!!

Why is this scrub so good?

When fine dark brown sugar becomes a luxury ingredient, you get a paradise for all the senses.
Divine fragrance of caramel and cane enhanced with true vanilla oil and lemon essential oil is exactly what your skin needs. Apply to damp skin and gently massage. Damp skin will dissolve some amount of the sugar resulting in even more enhanced moisturizing effect. Leave it on for a few minutes and you will get secondary exfoliation from glycolic acid present in dark brown sugar. Vanillin and similar compounds from vanilla will calm your skin preventing any redness and irritation.
Now, this is a true delight  for your face, don’t you agree?

Moroccan red clay is rich in different ions – iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium and therefore it is best as “detox” mask which cleans the skin and stimulates its metabolism.
