The skin is the largest organ our body has, yet many people do not value its importance and disregard its care. It safeguards us from heat, light, injury, and infection. Therefore, it is crucial to take utmost care of our skin because it's a very delicate part of our body. The earlier you start, the better. But it’s never too late to instil good habits. The current generation is conscious and particular about their health, including a good skincare regime. A good skincare routine makes your skin look healthy, plump, and fresh regardless of damage, pollution, and other environmental factors.
To maintain a proper skincare routine, you must follow it with utmost dedication and regularly. Good skin does not happen overnight. It has to be maintained with a lot of care. It is not enough to have good skincare products but must be applied correctly to show effective results.
There are 2 basic and simple steps with your skincare routine cleanse and moisturize. A gentle cleanser is better to use on your skin while still removing dirt, impurities, and makeup from the skin, thus helping to keep pores clear and maintain acne-prone skin. Cleansing should be done two times, i.e., once during the day and once at night.
There are lots of cleansers available on the market to suit different skin types, whether dry, oily or in combination. Therefore, choosing a cleanser best suited for your skin type is better than picking one blindly from the market. A better idea is to consult a dermatologist to decide which products are better for your skin type as they can examine your skin conditions better. Applying too many products at once will damage your skin, and finding out what is best suited for your skin will be tough.
The second most crucial step after cleansing is to moisturize your face. Face creams hydrate your skin by sealing it with moisture and nutrients, thus acting as a barrier between skin and other environmental irritants.
A single moisturizer will not all skin types. For example, dry skin should go for oil-based face creams, and oily skin should go for water-based face creams.
Here are a few things to keep in mind before you purchase a daily face cream:
Regardless of your skin type, every dermatologist will recommend a face cream that also acts as a sunscreen to help protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun, thus preventing sunburn and premature ageing. Mylo Eladi Day Cream provides SPF25+ and PA++ sun protection and is suitable for all skin types.
Face creams with antioxidants such as green tea, chamomile, pomegranate and Vitamins C, E, and A will help any skin look healthier, plump, and fresh. They have powerful anti-ageing benefits. The Mylo Eladi Day Cream is packed with the goodness of pomegranate, a potent antioxidant which brightens your skin and helps prevent it from radical damage, thus promoting collagen production.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, opt for a face cream that is non-comedogenic and does not clog pores. The Mylo Eladi Day Cream contains ashwagandha which protects the skin from acne and improves skin texture. It's a chemical and fragrance-free cream because fragrances irritate the skin and produce acne.
Look for a hydrating face cream which has beneficial oils to keep the skin hydrated and reduce dryness. The Mylo Eladi Day Cream contains Eladi Thailam and cardamom oil which hydrates the skin, detoxifies it, repairs it and provides radiance and glow.
Look for a face cream that is hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. Sensitive skin can react to cosmetic products and environmental factors. The Mylo Eladi Day Cream is ideal for sensitive skin as it is chemical-free, contains natural ingredients, reduces irritation and restores the skin's outer layer.
A common mistake people make while buying a face cream is being ignorant of the ingredients of the face cream. It is imperative to read the label before buying it.
Avoid a face cream that contains uncertified fragrance, artificial colour and harsh chemicals.
Avoid ingredients like waxes, or shea butter, as these may clog pores and lead to acne breakouts.
Overusing any steroid creams can lead to thinning of the skin, thus making the skin more sensitive.
If you are using a separate face cream, look for a sunscreen containing zinc oxide or titanium oxide because they will avoid acne breakouts.
Here's how you should apply your daily face cream:
Squeeze a little more than the pea size amount on your palm.
Warm up the face cream on your palms.
Then apply on the cheeks in a circular motion, followed by the forehead and other facial areas.
Use gentle strokes upwards on the neck.
After the application, wait two mins to let the skin absorb after going to the next step.
Seasonal changes can also have a significant impact on our skin. Make sure to use the correct products accordingly. You will need to hydrate your skin more during winter and use oil-free products during summer. Your face is the first thing that people notice in you. A healthy diet and skincare routine will make you look young and radiant while also making you feel healthier, increasing your self-confidence.
As they say, “Prevention is better than cure”. The earlier you prevent your problems, the better. Be disciplined and stick to your routine, which will automatically lead to a healthy lifestyle.
