My Daily Skin Care Routine

A glowing and hydrated face is the depiction of healthy skin and ladies can go by leaps and bounds to achieve it. Why? Because a beautifully natural fresh face looks attractive and is a booster for self-esteem and confidence. But just washing up every now and then and drinking a couple of glasses of water a day will not do the trick. It calls for a proper routine to take care of one’s skin and should be started early morning, every day.

Exercise your way to a healthy glow

The first and one of the most important steps is, exercise. Because it stimulates blood circulation in the body allowing the skin to breathe and release any toxins, making a person feel fresh and relaxed. This creates a natural glow and also keeps skin looking younger for ages.

Cleanse and exfoliate

Both products come in gel and cream forms with micro beads for extra pore cleaning. You can get face washes and exfoliating gels at If you’re unsure which formula is right for you, then consult a dermatologist or skincare expert for advice.

Ideal ingredients include flower and plant extracts, vitamin E and chamomile. Apply it all over the face and neck using a cotton ball and let it work.

Use a serum

Use a sunscreen
