festive skin care
Diwali is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. The lights, the special moments with family, dressing up and gorging on yummy Diwali treats -- this is undoubtedly one of the best times of year, especially in India. We all want to look our best, for all those selfies we’ll be taking, right? So our outfit and makeup are top priorities. But one thing we mustn't forget to ensure we achieve the look we want is our skin. Healthy skin is the perfect blank canvas for a beautiful makeup look and we’re here to help you get just that, in the run up to Diwali.
Yes, you’ve heard and probably have been religiously doing your CTM routine -- cleanse, tone, moisturise. But if you want truly healthy skin, you need to up your skin care game to DCETM -- double cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturise. Double cleansing helps thoroughly clean your skin of dirt, leftover makeup, debris and pollutants, helping you achieve your healthiest skin yet. Start by using the Precleanse followed up by the Special Cleansing Gel to complete your double cleansing routine. Follow this up with the Daily Microfoliant, a gentle, powder-based exfoliant that helps slough off dead skin cells, leaving you with smooth skin and clean pores, and also allows other skin care products to penetrate into your skin more effectively. Spritz on a toner, use your favourite moisturiser, and your skin will thank you for it.
add a serum
Serums are extremely effective skin care products, which contain active ingredients to specifically target skin concerns and deliver result-oriented healthy skin. You must understand your skin type, dry, oily, combination or sensitive, to find the best serum for you. Vitamin C is all the rage and rightfully so. Biolumin-C is a high-performance Vitamin C serum, which enhances the skin’s natural defence system to brighten, firm and help dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The advanced bio-technology and an ultra-stable Vitamin C complex work synergistically to enhance the bioavailability of Vitamin C to fight oxidative stress and the appearance of skin ageing before it starts. An optimised delivery system combined with a peptide and AHA renews for brighter, firmer, more radiant skin.
eyes and lips
While prepping your skin for the festivities, don’t forget that it’s all in the details. The skin under our eyes and on our lips are thinner than that on the rest of the face, so they need some extra care. Late nights, dehydration and a lot of makeup can exacerbate skin concerns in these areas, so ensure you’re using products that target them specifically. The Stress Positive Eye Lift is a high-performance eye treatment and masque, which energises the skin to reduce visible signs of stress. The active, cooling cream-gel minimises the appearance of puffiness and dark circles, increases skin luminosity, and helps restore skin barrier integrity. This product can be used daily or occasionally, as your skin needs it. For the lips, go for the Renewal Lip Complex, which provides a daily hydrating and nourishing lip treatment to smoothen, soften and restore the skin on your lips.
