Step-by-Step Skincare Made Easy


Everyone talks about skincare but seldom we discuss the how-to of skincare and what products to use.


Today, I present a step-by-step procedure of skincare or a facial routine that you can perform on your lazy and free days or best the weekends!


Lets begin!

Step 1. Wash

Face wash is essential before beginning any form of skincare because you need a clean slate to work on. The Mamaearth Charcoal Natural Face Wash is paraben and SLS free, without any mineral oil and artificial preservatives. It helps remove toxins, excess oil and leaves your face smooth and fresh.

Step 2. Mist

Mist is great for instant hydration. Not just after a face wash, you can actually use mist anytime of the day or night. The Plunge Miracle Water Radiance Tonic Spray comes in an easy spray bottle and has a boost of Vitamin C. Especially made for sensitive skin, this facial mist also helps in removing makeup residues and provides a bright looking skin.

Step 3. Scrub



Scrubs are essential for not just facial skin but for the body because the dead skin cells need to be removed to reveal fresh and smoother skin underneath. Every once a week or depending upon your skin type, use a good face scrub that is gentle yet effective on your skin. The Juicy Chemistry Rice Flour, Orange and Green Tea Face Scrub is revitalizing in nature. It is free from parabens, SLS, artificial presentative and mineral oil. Take your time in scrubbing your face and neck in circular motions. Give extra attention to your nose and corners of it as most the dirt accumulates around that area. After a wash, you will definitely feel a marked difference in the texture of your skin.

Step 4. Pack



Face packs and masks are like skinfoods. You apply and leave it to dry for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off and reveal a new, hydrated and fresh feeling skin. The new age face masks are sheet masks that caters to different skin types. The Face Shop Glow Combo is an excellent Korean brand that is so mild that it can be used daily. The combo I am mentioning has masks with lily, blueberry, shea butter, goji berry, avocado, honey and olive extracts. Choose one for your particular need of the day and enjoy a relaxing time with it.

Step 5. Toner



Toner is essential after wash, scrubbing and masking. Your skin pores are open and it is a must to close them and get your skin prepared for moisturization. The Klair's Supple Preparation Toner is extremely calming on skin, maintains pH balance and is super hydrating on skin after application. Use toner on a cotton pad and apply in upward motion. Toner is not a cleanser so do not be harsh with it and rub your skin. Press the toner-filled cotton pad gently on skin and let your skin dry naturally.

Step 6.  Serum



Serum is a new trend. Its lighter than cream and lotion and sinks into skin immediately. For dry skin types, using serum before any cream will act as an extra dose of hydration and help in preventing dry skin condition when outdoors. The Its Skin Power 10 Formula is one of the most widely loved serums. It aids skin discoloration from harsh sun rays, reduces dark spots, and improves the skin texture overtime. You can use this serum more than once a day. For oily skin types use this serum as a night cream.

Step 7. Eye Cream



Eye cream before face moisturizer is like giving extra attention to your under eyes and providing the right kind of treatment to that sensitive skin. The Mamaearth Under Eye Cream comes in a pump bottle and has active ingredients that removes puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. Can be used multiple times a day, this undereye cream is gentle because it is free from parabens, mineral oil and other artificial fillers like all the Mamaearth products. Just take less than a pea size amount of eye cream and massage gently. I love to store my eye cream in fridge for an instant cooling and relaxing effect.

Step 8. Cream


Time for deep moisturization. Choose a face cream that is very hydrating on skin and caters to your needs. The Face Shop Yehwadam Revitalizing Cream is a luxury cream from a Korean brand that has ginseng extracts. Its very nourishing. Take a pea size amount and massage your facial skin and neck.



So, these were my 8 essential skincare steps that should form part of a routine every week. Once you begin your skin wont require facials from parlors. At the comfort of your home and hygiene of your fingers you will be using your own products at your own pace.


Enjoy and banish tired looking skin forever!
