Being a working women myself I totally know how difficult it can be to take out any time to visit the salon to pamper our skin as our life is full of many other priorities and to-do lists. But our skin is not going to empathize with our situation and here comes the need of showing little love to our skin by spending just couple of minutes on it.
Here are few basic and simple steps that we can follow and keep our skin looking healthy and radiant always without paying regular visits to the salon.
Step 1: Cleansing: Wash your face thoroughly with a face wash and dry it with a towel. Avoid using hot water as it dries out skin. Then take some cleansing milk on a cotton pad and wipe your face with it. This will help in unclogging the pores.
This cleanser is creamy in consistency with a very mild fresh fragrance. It does its job well of cleansing the face and works wonders in removing the makeup. It has a moisturising effect which leaves skin soft and supple after use. It also has menthol which gives a subtle cooling effect.
Step 2: Steaming: Steam your face for around 5 minutes. This will help in further unclogging the pores, loosening the black heads and removing any trapped makeup or dirt.
Step 3: Scrubbing: This step is important as it helps in removing any dead skin from the face which makes it look dull. Scrub your face gently for 5 minutes and wash it off.
This scrub has herbal ingredients like neem and apricot. It has a white gel like consistency with tiny green and orange particles. The granules are mild which makes it suitable for acne prone skin too. I particularly like the fragrance of this scrub. It is super refreshing. You can see visible reduction in black heads with regular use.
Step 4: Face Mask: Face masks are used to moisturize, cleanse, tone and rejuvenate the skin. Use a face mask which is suitable for your skin type.
Neem is known to have anti bacterial properties. The face pack is in a green paste form. It is suitable for all skin types and works great for acne prone skin. It cleans the skin thoroughly by taking out all the dirt and impurities. It has fuller’s earth as it’s main ingredient which gives a cooling effect to the skin. The fragrance just like other products in the range is very refreshing.
Step 5: Toning: Take a small amount of toner on a cotton ball and apply it on your face. This will help in shrinking up the open pores. Also toner maintains the pH balance of the skin.
This toner is transparent and has a pleasant smell. It has moisturising properties and does not dry out the skin. It is very lightweight and works well in terms of tightening the pores and controlling oil. Also it is alcohol free.
Step 6: Moisturisation: Finally apply a hydrating moisturizer all over your face and neck.
- Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Skin Cream Rs. 75 for 50 ml
- Himalaya Herbals Intensive Face Moisturizing Lotion Rs. 90 for 100 ml
