What is the largest organ in the human body? Did you say ‘skin’? Yeah you got it right. (If you said ‘liver’, it’s the second largest. And the largest internal organ!) And is it not necessary to take care of your skin?
Today I will be sharing a few simple, easy steps you can do to have good skin throughout your life.
1. Cleansing your skin
Cleansing your skin twice is very important. Once, after you get up in morning. Reason? Cause your skin produces unwanted oils thoughout the night, which you want to get rid of in the morning. Secondly, before doing your night skincare routine. You wanna start with a fresh & clean face of course. You can double cleanse too if you want. Different types of cleanser like — gel, foam, creme are available. Choose according to your skin type.
Scrubbing and exfoliating are two things that are important. DIY scrubs, readymade scrubs available in the market, or face wash scrub should be used twice or thrice in a week, depending on your skin. Chemical exfoliants can be used too. Scrubbing removes your dead skin and is very helpful when you want your makeup to sit on your skin properly. Also for that glowing skin!
Right after cleaning your face, comes toning. Toner basically preps your skin to take up the moisturizer more efficiently. Imagine applying thick coat of moisturizer to a dry sponge and a wet sponge. Which one takes up the moisturizer quickly? The wet sponge right? The wet sponge is your skin with toner. There are different toners targeting – dry skin, oily skin, acne and pimples, wrinkles etc.

People often ask me this question, ‘Is moisturizer for oily skin is essential?’ Yes it is, if you don’t apply moisturizer, you make your skin think that it needs to produce more oil, hence more oil production for oily skinned people. As for other skin types, there are so many good moisturizers out there in the market. Whichever suits you!
All your skincare goes to vain if you don’t use one thing! Yes, sunscreen. It’s that important. Sunlight exposure can worsen your acne, pimples. It can cause premature wrinkles, signs of ageing, sunspots, age spots, and all 100 other things you don’t want. All of us want to age gracefully, don’t we? Wear a sunscreen even when you are at home. All day, everyday. There are different ones again – matte, gel, cream, moisturizing!
Keep calm and put a face pack. 😂 Like seriously, homemade facepacks are the best. Cheap, readily affordable, nearly no side effect. Or if you want to, get a face pack which works for you. There are tons available in the market right now. Masking twice to thrice a week is more than enough. If you are lazy AF, try to do every Sunday at least.
That was all for this post. Hope it helps you, specially if you are a teenager. I will be posting soon about skincare for people who are above 30. And if you want detailed posts about these above steps, do comment and let me know!
Until then, spread peace.
