What every woman should have in her skincare routine!

1. Cleanser

Few called it cleansing lotion or cleansing milk, cream depends on individual choice. Everyone should have a cleanser in their skincare kit. Deciding between a foaming, milky is a matter of preference but no cleanser should make your skin dry or uncomfortable. Use Cleanser to wipe your face after a tiring day. A regular cleanser is a good idea to ensure a thorough clean.

2. Facewash

When you start washing your face before going to bed, it allows your skin to breathe and cleans the dirt. Face wash helps to remove the dirt, oil, and urban pollutants that water alone can not leave behind. The face wash is an important part of the skincare routine or can say skincare essentials must-have. If you wear makeup daily, then it’s essential to wash your face on a regular basis. Like taking shower, the face wash is also important. Daily face washing removes these impurities to give the skin a fresh look.

3. Toner

Another skincare essential product that’s toner. Before moisturizing and following your facial cleanser, a face toner is a quick, absorbing liquid that helps to remove excess dirt, traces of oil, and makeup, correct and balance the pH of your skin, and helps control acne. By helping to clean and close pores, it’s especially beneficial for acne-prone skin. Toner hydrates skin. It’s important for all.

3. Moisturizer {face & body}

A moisturizer is a must for all skin types & for all seasons. Moisturizer helps to keep your skin hydrated and also prevents dryness. It also acts as a barrier against external irritants. You can achieve younger-looking skin. Choose a moisturizer based on your skin type, concern the season, and your pocket. Your skin is dry go for a heavier moisturizer. For oily or prone to breakout look for a non-comedogenic formula that won’t clog pores. Keep using or applying on daily basis must-have for everyone & for all skin types.

4. Sunscreen

Generally, if you live in India you need to apply sunscreen daily, particularly if you are going to be in the sun for more than 20 minutes. Your SUNSCREEN is your most important weapon in keeping tan, wrinkles, and pigmentation at bay. If you use a chemical sunscreen apply it after cleansing and give it a few minutes to absorb before you apply your serum and moisturizer. If you use sunscreen with a physical block [like zinc oxide] apply it after your serum and moisturizer. Make sure you apply 30 minutes before you leave home 50 SPF every day. You must apply while staying at home 30 SPF daily.

5. Facial oil/Serum

Facial oil when applied as the last step of your skincare routine in the morning, facial oil can act as a barrier on the outer layer of the skin and give a flawless makeup finish. A serum/oil is an important step in your skincare routine if you are particularly concerned with pigmentation, enlarged pores, or fine lines. Using a serum regularly can give your skin a firmer, smoother texture, make pores appear smaller, and increase moisture levels. Apply your serum morning and night after your cleanser, sunscreen, and eye cream, and before your moisturizer.

6. Eye Cream

The skin around your eyes is much finer than the rest of your face which means it’s more prone to wrinkles. It also has less oil gland so it benefits from cream to keep the area moist. Choose a product based on your personal concerns. If you want to prevent wrinkles look for an eye cream with antioxidants. If you want to minimize fine lines and wrinkles choose an eye cream with retinol or hyaluronic acid. An eye cream with caffeine is great for people who get puffy eyes and cream with brighteners will benefit someone with dark circles. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, an eye cream with an SPF is a must.

7. Makeup Remover

Makeup removal should be part of your daily skincare ritual because it is good for your skin. The specific benefits because it washes away cosmetics, impurities, and dirt from the surface of your skin, which could lead to irritation or cause your skin to age more rapidly. It’s essential to remove your makeup with makeup remover before cleansing. This will prevent clogged pores, pimples, and breakouts and ensure that you clean your face properly.

8. Facial/Body Scrub

A facial scrub or body scrub is also skincare essential & can do wonders for your skin. Slough off dead skin cells. Dead skin cells can make your skin look dull, dry, and flaky. Scrubbing accelerates the skin’s natural regeneration process. Scrubs can clear your complexion a great addition to any skincare routine. Exfoliating your face or body is a great add-on to the skincare regime.

9. Face Pack/Sheet Mask

Face packs are used to moisturize, cleanse, tone, and rejuvenate your skin. Also face masks are designed for each skin and age type. Another reason for applying a face mask is to help relax. And what better way to pamper and treat your skin to goodness than applying a rejuvenating face pack. Face masks can have the immediate effect that people are looking for, so although they may be temporary, they can give you a boost, hydrates well give glow for an event. Sheet masks (or Korean face masks) are great for soothing skin. If the skin is sensitive or inflamed from any procedure or for even sunburn sheet mask will help. A face sheet mask gives calming and relaxing feeling.

10. Shower Gel

The purpose of body wash is to rid your skin of things like dirt, excess oil, odor, sweat, and makeup. Shower gel (also shower cream or body wash) is a specialized liquid product used for cleaning the body during showers. The shower gel is an important product for daily skincare essentials.
