Whether you are a full-time
employee, a boss, or an individual who does work from home, after a long week
full of work, assignments, and chores, you deserve a full day of rest to get
yourself ready for the next week.
Most people take care of
nourishing their bodies and release the week`s stress from their minds but do
not realize that the skin also requires pampering and attention to stay fresh.
Now the question arises that why
doing a proper skincare routine at least once a week is necessary.
This is because throughout the
week whenever you get out of your home for any purpose, a significant amount of
dust and dirt accumulate on the skin, and removing it becomes necessary to
prevent pimples and excess sebum production.
Moreover, the skincare routine
also aids in removing the dead cells from your skin as well as the products and
steps of skincare make your skin look fresh and bright.
Here are a few of the basic
steps to an easy and quick but effective skincare routine you should follow 3
times or at least once a week:
Cleansing your face is one of
the basic steps to keep your skin clean as the skin comes in contact with
pollutants, viruses, bacteria, and much more therefore it is pretty essential
to remove the debris from the skin to prevent the opening of pores.
However, it is also important to
choose a cleanser according to your skin type as many people tend to buy ones
with strong chemicals which can be harmful to sensitive and dry skin and hence
can make your skin very dry.
Moreover, if you are someone who
prefers using natural products instead of synthetic ones, it is recommended for
them to wash your face with gram flour paste and neem leaves cleanser.
Another important step to keep your
skin fresh and beautiful is by exfoliating it.
Exfoliating is very necessary as
it removes the dead skin from your face and can help in removing the dark spots
and dry patches on your skin as well. It is recommended by dermatologists to
use exfoliators with small granules in them and gently rub them in a circular
motion to prevent inflammation.
If you are looking for a natural
and organic exfoliator, you can use sugar and coffee, gram flour, rice flour,
and any soft fruit peel for this purpose as well because all of these natural
products are guaranteed to do the job of exfoliating effectively.
Moisturizing is equally as
important as exfoliating and cleansing in a skincare routine because it helps
give a glow to your skin and make it look fresh and healthy. Moisturizers
hydrate the skin and improve its elasticity and integrity of the skin.
There is a misconception among
individuals having oily skin that moisturizing their skin is not necessary
however it is an essential skincare step as the moisturizer makes a layer upon
the skin barrier which helps in trapping the pollutants, and harmful agents of
the environment and act as a protective layer for the skin. Moreover,
moisturizing can help prevent excess sebum production and enlargement of pores.
People with oily skin should
apply water-based moisturizer on their face whereas oil-based moisturizers are
suitable for dry-skin individuals.
Although toner is not an
essential step in a skincare routine, it is recommended by dermatologists to
use them once in a while to have healthy-looking and blooming skin.
Toners as the name suggest give
your skin an equal tone and provide it nutrients to absorb and enhance your
Some of the natural toners you
can use for bright and glowing skin are rose water and aloe Vera toners,
cucumber, and rice water toners. Other than these, toners having salicylic acid
and hyaluronic acid are also pretty popular as they prevent pimples from
appearing and hydrate the skin as well.
You can even use sheet masks and
lie down as most of them have a combination of toning and moisturizing
chemicals that can be easily applied.
Use of Sunscreen
Sunscreen should be applied
religiously throughout the day whether you are working in your home or going outdoors.
This product is crucial as it acts as a protective barrier against the harmful
ultraviolet radiations of the sun and prevents skin cancer and sunburn as well.
Moreover, the use of sunscreen can prevent you from having dark spots and
maintain a smooth and even skin tone.
Many dermatologists and skincare specialists recommend applying sunscreen after every 4-5 hours to reduce the chances of the harmful sun rays from reaching your skin barrier.

washing your face and applying makeup on it. It includes a few important steps
