Summer has set in with full vigor. Though we do get the much-needed respite from the rains, the heat builds up, causing humidity. And the fact that most of us are working from home, doesn’t make things easy.
Even though working from easy has its merits, we still tend to neglect our skincare routine because we assume that our skin doesn’t need much care since we do not step out. Most of us do think that we are not stepping out in the sun, so we do not need that extra protection, but the fact is that our skin still needs respite from the indoor pollutants.
Here are five products from our kitty that will ramp up your skincare routine this summer.
Boost with a cleanser
Retinol is undoubtedly the buzzword in the skincare industry today. Touted for every skin type, it is rightly known as the elixir of youth. Packed with the goodness of Bakuchi, an herb that finds its place in the ancient texts of Ayurveda, it is now a part of modern skincare science. A mélange of these ingredients in the Retinol face wash not just brightens the skin but also helps to reduce pigmentation, promoting an even skin tone.
Make this your skin’s BFF as you prep your day with this gentle skin cleanser that accelerates skin cell turnover, washes away all traces of built-up impurities, and fights signs of aging. Not just that with regular use, you’ll see the fine lines and wrinkles fade away! A perfect start to your morning routine.
Tone it up
Once you are done with the cleansing, pat your skin dry and use any of our toners. The Vit C toner promotes glowing skin, while the rose toner reduces inflammation and soothes the skin. If your skin is prone to acne and breakouts or if you have super sensitive skin, try the Niacin toner that has been specially formulated for acne-prone skin.
A toner helps to remove any left-over traces of dirt and impurities that are stuck in the pores of your skin after you wash your face. Clogged pores can often lead to blackheads and can lead to breakouts and acne over some time. A toner should be a part of your AM and PM routine when it comes to skincare as it not just tightens the pores but also gives your skin a soft and dewy look.
Hydrate the skin
Hydrating your skin should be the next step in your regime. Mamaearth has an array of serums that are targeted for specific skin issues. The ultra-hydrating serums from Mamaearth are fast-absorbing and blend into your skin quickly, leaving it soft and moisturized. Whether you are stepping outdoors or are working indoors, your skin will need hydration, so do not miss this step in your skincare routine, especially in the summer. Opt for a lightweight serum, like the Vitamin C Face Cream, enriched with Niacinamide and antioxidants. It fights photoaging, free-radical damage and repairs skin cells to reveal healthy and radiant skin. Another option is the natural radiance day cream which has a super-fast absorbing formula that keeps your skin moisturized. For the PM routine, you can opt for the Retinol night cream that works its magic on your skin as you catch up on your much-needed sleep.
Use that sunscreen
It’s a myth that you need sunscreen only when you are stepping outdoors. Ideally, you will need to apply sunscreen on all exposed skin parts at least 30 minutes before you step outdoors. And, of course, reapply every 3 hours to ensure your skin is protected from the harmful UV rays that can cause damage to your skin. There is a slight presence of UV rays even when you are indoors, so apply that sunscreen. Our sunscreen, specifically formulated for Indian skin, is one of the best-selling products absorbed into the skin quickly and does not leave any white traces as a chemical sunscreen does.
Mask It Up Once A Week
While your skin needs the above products every single day, you also need that boost once a week to pamper your skin for that extra dose of nourishment. And that is where you can use Mamaearth’s sheet masks that give you double the dose of nourishment that your skin needs. Tear open a packet of any of your favorite sheet masks and place them on the face. Please wait for 15 minutes and gently massage the extra serum till it’s completely absorbed into your skin. You’ll be left with visibly glowing and radiant skin. And if you love the plain old-style masks, choose any of our clay-based face masks.
And of course, do not forget to exfoliate your skin at least once a week and use an eye cream before you sleep to keep the area around your eyes nourished and reduce the intensity of the dark circles. That’s it! These are the only products you will ever need to keep your youthful glow intact, make your skin look glowing, and have people guessing your age!
Note: All of Mamaearth’s products are made with natural and organically derived ingredients. We have zero-tolerance towards nasties like parabens, sulfates, and SLS. While we aim to provide you with the best that nature has to offer, we always recommend a patch test before you start using any of our products. This can help rule out any allergies to a particular ingredient or ingredients in our products.
