In India, no celebration is complete without putting your best foot forward. Dressing up in new clothes and glamming up like a diva for those perfect pictures is a given. But to truly feel like your best, it is important that your skin feels the same way too. So how do you go about getting that parlour like glow at home? Here are some solutions which are apt for August, the festive season and beyond:
Set up a daily skincare routine
The first and the foremost is to make skincare a part of your daily routine. This means that there are certain things you should do regularly to keep your skin young and hydrated. This includes following a strict CTM routine along with exfoliation. CTM stands for Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising. The monsoon can be extremely harsh on the Indian skin. To remove all the dirt and impurities from one’s skin, it is important to exfoliate and finish it off with a nice face mask to make your skin soft and supple. Depending on your skin type, this should be done once or twice a month.
Another important thing that you absolutely cannot miss is sunscreen. Do not get misled by the absence of the sun in the cloudy weather. Sun or not, its rays can still reach you and damage your skin without an extra layer of protection. To avoid skin damage by the UV rays, ensure that you apply sunscreen atleast thirty minutes before going out in the sun. Some of the most effective sunscreens can be found at VLCC. Depending on your skin type, these are available in gel creme and lotion forms. Not only that, these are also available in various finishes including matte, glow, de-tan and more. These are a great option as you can choose from a range of sunscreens with SPF 30-60 which is ideal for the Indian weather.
Timely facials for a parlour like glow at home
During monsoons and the festive season, your skin undergoes a lot. Right from the hot and humid weather to the consistent application of makeup. This can make your skin look tired and lose its shine. With busy schedules and well, Covid, one of the easiest solutions to give your skin a much needed TLC is by opting for at-home facials. These are so easy and give great results, including a parlour like glow at home. These days you can find many at-home facial kits that you can use easily. A personal favorite is the VLCC Gold Single Facial Kit which keeps the skin hydrated and thus protects its softness. Further, it also rejuvenates the skin and gives it a nice glow or a shine. The Gold Facial is perhaps one of the best facials for the skin as it has been used for centuries and by royalty, including Cleopatra.
A facial is also useful for the long term care of the skin as it prevents ageing by tightening the skin, reducing fine lines, pigmentation, tanning, wrinkles and much more. Good facial products also help to boost the metabolism of your skin which helps your skin produce more collagen. Collagen is responsible for the repairing of the skin and for its youthful look. For this, you can also opt for diamond and platinum facials or other fruit based facial kits based on your personal preference and of course, skin type.
Do not neglect your hands and feet!
One of the most overlooked aspects in skincare is perhaps one’s hands and feet. So many individuals take care of their facial skin but totally ignore these body parts which undergo a lot of wear and tear on an everyday basis. It is important to ensure that the cuticles, nails and skin on your hands and feet are clean, healthy and soft.
For the same, a regular routine of manicure and pedicure is absolutely necessary especially in the monsoon and festive season wherein the skin on the feet can grow darker and lose its softness. To combat the same, you can also opt for Manicure and Pedicure kits that can be used conveniently in the comfort of your home. These kits will help clean your fingers, toes, cuticles, and smoothen and soften the skin on these parts of your body making you feel fresh and rejuvenated.
Therefore, it can be seen that a range of products are available in the market that can help you address all your skincare woes and give you a soft, healthy and radiating skin. VLCC has always remained a personal choice for the same because of its wide ranging products which are made using natural ingredients and extremely kind on the skin. They are available for every skin type and in an extremely affordable price range which is ideal for the festive season and can give you a parlour like glow at home, effortlessly!
