I have a busy life and so I need to keep my skincare routine simple. What all should I do?
Your everyday skincare routine doesn’t need to be very complicated. Ideally, you must wash your face every morning and apply sunscreen before exposing yourself in the sun. Wearing sunscreen is essential as sun damage can cause skin problems such as dark spots, pigmentation etc. Always cleanse your face after a hectic day to get rid of pollution and dust. Besides, you must use face scrub and face mask once or twice a week to make your skin look radiant.
How do I handle my sensitive skin?
The only way to handle your sensitive skin is being gentle with it. If you have a sensitive skin, always wash your face very gently. Choose the right products for your skin and avoid using harsh cleansers. Regardless of your skin type, always use a sunscreen as it helps protect your sensitive skin. Please note that a sensitive skin may not react too well to a sunscreen with higher SPF so always stick to SPF which is below 30.
I don’t wear make-up, do I need to wash my face twice a day?
Your skin faces a lot of pollution, dust and germs throughout the day even if you don’t wear make-up. Thus to get rid of skin impurities and keep your skin healthy, you need to wash your face at least twice a day.
Can I wear a face mask if I have a dry skin?
The answer is yes, but not as often as a person with a normal or oily skin can. If you have a dry skin, you can wear a face mask once a week. After applying a face mask and allowing it to dry for 15 minutes, rinse off gently with water and pat dry. Then apply a moisturiser or a sorbet to retain the moisture and to avoid dryness. This will help you look fresh at the same time you don’t have to be worried about dryness.
What is the difference between a moisturiser and a sorbet?
While moisturizers and sorbets serve the same purpose i.e. to make your skin softer and smoother and prevent dryness, sorbets feel lighter while applying and glides very smoothly on your skin. Furthermore, sorbet has a non-greasy feel as compared to a typical moisturizer.
