There is nothing more gratifying than waking up to a moisturized and hydrated skin. Over the course of the day, your skin goes through a lot. Air pollution, dirt and exposure to the sun can hurt your skin by breaking down the collagen, leaving your skin even more vulnerable to damage. Moreover, dirt and dust can accumulate on the skin’s surface and clog pores. Any negligence in addressing these issues may have adverse effects on your skin support structure that can further accelerate skin ageing. The key to fight these effects is to follow a step by step skin care routine that can help you maintain the health and appearance of your skin.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution for skincare. Your skin type, diet, lifestyle, age and skin-specific requirements, are some of the key elements that help in determining which products will suit you the best. However, there is a prescribed general order of the routine that everyone must follow.
What is a good, simple skin care routine?
Amidst all the products galore and the available skincare options, it’s hard to decide which ones to include in your daily skincare routine.
Even the experts agree, that a good skincare regimen only needs a few important elements – a gentle cleanser, toner and a moisturizer followed by a good sunscreen. A very basic, yet effective skin care routine, that isn’t cumbersome to follow every day.
Choose natural skincare products that are safe to use. Using skincare products with natural ingredients can make a huge difference over time in keeping your skin healthy and glowing naturally.
While there is no harm in trying different kinds of products, the fact is that most of our skin-related needs can be taken care of by sticking to a basic CTM routine.
What is CTM routine for skincare?
Cleansing is the first step of any good skincare routine. You need a cleanser to wash off all the dirt, makeup, excess oil and environmental impurities that end up on your face. If not cleaned properly these impurities can lead to clogging of pores resulting in breakouts, dull appearance of skin, uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
You should always choose a cleanser that works for your skin type. The purpose is to make the skin refreshingly clean. Remember to wash no more than twice a day.
Harsh chemicals, parabens and sulphates can do more harm to your skin than you can imagine. Look for natural face wash with Olive Oil-based cleansers that is gentle on your skin. Also, an antioxidant-rich ingredient like Vitamin C is vital, as it boosts your collagen and helps fight free radicals and damage caused by UV rays.
Another genius ingredient that is known to boost hydration is Hyaluronic Acid. It has a unique ability to retain moisture in the skin and helps reduce the appearance of any wrinkles.
The Moms Co.’s Natural Vita Rich Face Wash comes packed with the goodness of these along with other beneficial ingredients like Witch Hazel extracts and Vitamin B3. They help fight signs of ageing and maintain clear, radiant skin without any trace of harsh chemicals making it an ideal cleanser for all skin types.
Toning is a great second step to add to your skincare ritual. Sometimes cleansers cannot get all the dirt off your skin. A good toner not only removes excess impurities but also helps the skin balance its pH level.
It is best to use a natural face toner that is alcohol-free. Alcohol as an ingredient can have adverse effects on your skin by stripping it of its natural moisture, causing irritation and an off-balance in the skin’s natural pH levels. Using a natural face toner can help give your skin a boost of hydration and remove dirt and impurities from the skin.
Look for toners that are gentle and effective in restoring skin’s pH levels back to a natural state, clearing away impurities and prepping your skin to better absorb moisturizer, serums and other products that are a part of your skincare regimen.
Natural antioxidant-rich ingredients like Vitamin C and Green Tea make for a great toner. While Vitamin C protects your skin against damage caused by pollution and harmful sun rays, Green Tea has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Niacinamide is another great ingredient to look for in a toner. It helps regulate oil and minimize pore appearance keeping skin tone even and smooth.
The Moms Co.’s Natural Daily Face Toner is made from these natural ingredients along with 5 plant AHA’s and Aloe Vera that gently soothe the skin, remove excess oil and tighten pores for visibly radiant skin.
After you have cleansed your skin, moisturizing is a super important last step.
Dry and irritated skin can cause acne and breakouts. A good moisturizer will protect your skin from losing moisture, leaving it supple and soft.
As our skin absorbs the majority of what we put on it, it is imperative we chose a moisturizer with the highest quality and most natural ingredients.
Chose a moisturizer infused with the wholesomeness of ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Chia seed oil, Arbutin and Kakadu Plum – which is the world’s richest botanical source of Vitamin C.
All these power-packed ingredients offer unique benefits that can help ease skin pigmentation, repair damaged skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The Moms Co.’s Natural Vita Rich Face Cream is a face moisturizer that has power-packed ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Chia Seed Oil and Vitamin C. Its water-based formula hydrates the skin leaving it radiant and moisturized. It works as an excellent face crème for normal, oily and acne-prone skin type.
Can we do CTM daily?
Following these skincare steps can help you complete your CTM routine and ensure your skin remains healthy. It is best to follow this routine twice a day – once in the morning and once before bedtime.
