Though the lockdown is a bit relaxed now, we stay at home to be safe. It was not easy! Working from home for more than 3 months is not at all easy! But this can be the perfect time to pamper your skin.
But some tensions are off our shoulders. We have a lot of time that we saved from the commute and getting ready. It is in your hands to take time for your skin to take baby steps towards healthy and younger-looking skin.
Commit to yourself that you will look better when you get back to the office and start working on your skin every day.

Morning Ritual: CTM – Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize
>> Cleanse your face with a mild face wash that suits your skin and splash cold to lukewarm water. Do not use hot water too often.
>>Scrub (Not more than twice a week) your skin to gently exfoliate the dead cells away. Doing this more often may loosen your skin.
>>Tone your face with a natural toner. We can use rose water, cucumber water as a toner.
>>Moisturize your skin with a light moisturizer if you are staying indoors. If you want to work with some make-up, go for a slightly heavy moisturizer.
