This topic brings back memories to me as my dad was the one who insisted i begin a skincare routine . The most important thing is to care for your skin , he says. Because if the skin is good, even minimal makeup will make u glow from within.
Sharing my skincare routine with you , let me begin by describing my skin . I am 36 years old and have very dry & sensitive skin , minimal pores and dark circles 😊
One brand with which i have trusted my skin from the past 23 months ( as of until May) has been Botanics by boots . Reason being they have plant extracts , hence organic to some extent, plus the product does what it claims ❣
🌞DAY TIME ROUTINE :-
No makeup day – ( typically thrice a week)
Important to give your skin a break from makeup , and on such days, i wash my face with dove facewash and i apply vitamin e oil ( twice a week) or intensive moisturiser ( once a week)
I scrub my face using Botanics purifying face scrub and them Wash face with dove facewash and the Olay ProX cleansing device . I apply botanics radiance boost followed by botanics all bright day cream.
🌙NIGHT TIME ROUTINE :-
I cleanse my face with Botanics all bright cleansing foam , then apply dermalogica toner and let my skin rest for a while.
Before sleeping i spray rosewater on my face and follow it up with botanics triple age renewal serum & Olay total 7 night cream .
I scrub my face using Botanics dermabrasion , wash it with Botanics all bright cleansing foam & then apply toner and let my skin rest for a while.
Before sleeping I apply triple age renewal serum and replenishing night cream
Daytime – Soap n glory rejuvenating under eye cream
Nighttime- nip + fab under eye cream
petra hand cream and sally hansen foot cream
I apply face packs 2 times a week
If i am feeling very lazy 🙈 i will choose either the Sephora sheet mask or soap n glory face pack
And on days when i am not lazy i will apply a homemade pack
I love to scrub myself using soap n glory atleast once a week. Daily Baths are followed by a in shower moisturiser spray by Nivea .
At nights i resort to Soap n Glory butter yourself and ahem butter myself😀
I have tried quite a few brands of face creams over the past few years , but Those mentioned above will always remain my absolute favorites.
While last month i tried on an organic brand , this month I am trying couple of items from Murad , will Post about both in a few days .
Pssst … There are some days when i am like , what the heck , lotion potion gaya bhaad mein , main toh sone jaa rahi hoon 😜😄
On a serious note ,Although there are hundreds of brands offering the best of products, nothing beats naturopathy . Drinking lots of water, eating lots of fresh fruits , fresh vegetables 🍎🍒🍇🍊🍓and taking good multivitamins does wonders for your skin . Stay positive and be happy and that will lend you an aura and Dont forget to wipe off all makeup before u retire for the day.
Until next time
