Daily Skin Care :
CLEANSING - Normally you could use a face wash either gel based for oily skin and cream based for dry and mature skin. Since its difficult to get a face wash during lockdown so why not use your kitchen ingredients. Yoghurt or Curd which is easily available is a fantastic cleanser. Why Curd? Because it has lactic acid which helps in skin brightening and hydrating . It's good for all types of skin. Rub the fresh curd onto your face and massage lightly till the white color changes .You can repeat this cleanser as the day ends too to keep your skin freshly clean.Use warm water to wash off .
TONING - Rosewater is easily available . Cucumber , Bottlegourd or Doodhi . Grate and use the juice as excellent toner.
MOISTURISING - Moisturising will make your skin soft and keep it supple . A great homemade moisturiser is Aloe vera gel plus rose water for oily skin. For dry skin add Virgin coconut oil .
SUNSCREEN - Sunscreen forms a transparent protective layer on your skin . It has to be applied 20 minutes before you go outdoors. Indian skin requires a sunscreen of SPF25 to SPF 30. Keep reapplying. Not to be confused with Sunblock which consists of SPF 50 to 70 and forms a whitish creamy layer on your skin . Typically a sun block is used for long outdoor hours.
