Sunscreen is the backbone of skincare. There’s no point investing in beautiful face cream or serum, if you don’t protect your skin from the sun. And if you have this first step as part of your daily regimen, there are many other things that you can do to boost your beauty ritual and the quality of your complexion.
Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen
No matter what you SPF may be, you have reapply it every two hours. Whether your sunscreen is natural or chemical, this rule applies to all. Your sun product loses its efficacy in a couple of hours and you need to top up if you want optimum protection. To make it easier carry a small bottle of rose water mist and spritz it all over your face. Tissue off and then reapply sunscreen for application that feels super fresh.
Cover all the beauty blind spots
You neck, décolletage and hands always are the first to shown signs of sun damage. This is because we don’t protect them as we do our face. So apply moisturiser and sunscreen all over your face, neck and décolletage. And regularly apply hand cream.
Soothe your skin
If you have overexposed to the sun and feel like your skin is burning, you need to soothe it immediately. During summer, keep our Organic Aloe Vera Juice in the refrigerator at all times. Spray it on to sunburns to soothe. When your skin feels a bit calmer, apply the Jwalini Retexturising Skin Treatment Oil to reduce burns, marks and irritations.
Remove your tan
Once you have calmed your sunburn completely, then use the Nalpamaradi Thailam Skin Brightening Treatment to remove unwanted tan and clarify your complexion.
Treat your skin at night
Your skin regenerates itself naturally when you sleep. So night time is ideal for anti ageing treatments. Apply your night cream and face oil during this time. If you choose just one product, make it the Kumkumadi Miraculous Beauty Fluid Ayurvedic Night Serum to illuminate your complexion. Mist your face well with rose water first and then pat on a few drop of this oil. The rose water will provide a good base for the oil to spread, and will also help it get absorbed better.
Add an at-home facial over the weekend
Beauty experts all over the world are indulging in a #SundayFacial. Sunday is the best day because it prep you up for the entire week. Exfoliate your face with the Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Face Scrub to get rid of dead skin. If your skin is dry, then give yourself a face massage with one of our oils using round upwards-and-outwards strokes. You can use the sesame, almond or coconut oils for this massage. Then, wipe the oil with a damp, hot towel and slather on a face mask. Try the Lavanya Plant Mask, which detoxifies and clarifies all skin types. Lastly, wash the mask and pat on your favorite moisturiser to wrap up the facial.
