Long days of house cleaning, the transition in weather and the sweet lure of oily foods during Diwali take a toll on your skin. On top of this, the pollution and no time to indulge in skincare routines add to the trouble. It shouldn’t be a surprise if acne comes unannounced after the Diwali celebration.
Wouldn’t it be great to relish in the festivities without paying heed to the pesky skin trouble troubles?

Now you can keep dazzling even after the festive season with some simple skincare tips, like:
Step 1: Cleanse the dirt and trouble away!
Your mantra after the Diwali celebration must be – Getting rid of the impurities every day. No matter the type or texture, cleansing your face must be a part of your daily skincare ritual even after the festive season ends.
Binge eating and widespread pollution can clog your pores to cause a breakout. That’s why you must pay extra attention to your face by religiously following cleansing skincare tips. Remember the hyperactive area on your face to target and arrest excess sebum production.
Our Oily to Normal Skin Cleanser balances excess oil production, controls blemishes, purifies pores and prevents future breakout by targeting the acne causing bacteria. It gently exfoliates and cleanses the impurities from the skin. The encapsulated salicylic acid continues treating the acne even after rinse off.
Step 2: Tone to restore skin health!
Toner can do wonders for your facial skin. You might have considered toners to be a part of a teenage skincare routine for sensitive skin, but your post-Diwali skin requires the same love and treatment. The right toner can not only shrink enlarged pores but also helps with skin rejuvenation.
Before using the toner, ensure that your choice adds to the radiance of your skin without leading to further problems like flaky skin. You can choose your favourite toner from a range of Femica India products like Lacuna Light Skin Balance Glow Tonic.

Clogged, sweaty pores? Dull, tired skin? A splash of this tonic is all you need to refresh and awaken your skin.
The mist which also does wonders as a toner delivers a brightening boost of hydration with a powerful complex of marine algae. Rose hydrosol corrects uneven skin tone and enhances radiance. Full of natural astringents, the refreshing toner minimizes pores and balances the skin pH.Â Â

Step 3: Enhance the glow through moisturization!
The busy daily schedule during the festive days and skipping care sessions can be disastrous to the moisture layer of the skin. Just like toner for the face, moisturization must be a non-negotiable part of the post-Diwali skincare regimen.
And, if you think a few glasses of water can restore your glow, you need to rethink your skincare planning. Not only does applying an adequate amount of skin moisturizer keep the moisture locked, but it also adds life to your dull skin with sebum regulation.
You can choose a compatible moisturizing agent depending on your skin type and the moisture content, such as Beauprty Oily to Normal Skin Moisturizer. If you’ve been dealing with dry and flaky skincare, you can include the moisturizer in your night routine as well in post-Diwali pampering sessions.
Our beauprty Oily to Normal Skin Moisturizer. Controls Sebum Repairs and Hydrates Skin. Specifically designed for TeensÂ restores hydration to skin without adding an additional shine. Provides skin with defense for acne and blue light induced damage.Balances excess oil production and controls future breakout.
Step 4: Prevent sun-rays exposure!
Even though the smog after Diwali can make it feel like there is no damage causing sun rays, that’s not true. Rain or no rain, sun or no sun, UV rays are always around you!
As nasty as it sounds, UV light can mess up your DNA and cause additional damage along with pollutants in the air. What’s the solution, then? Simply protect your face with a sunscreen cream of SPF 30 or more right after the application of skin moisturizers such as COSIQ Sunprotect Daily Use Sunscreen Serum SPF 30.

Step 5: Show love to your lips!
If you really care about the rejuvenation of your skin, the sunscreen cream application isn’t the final stop. The change in weather and pollution cause extreme damage to your lips as well.
Unlike your skin, your lips don’t have sebaceous glands to keep them moisturized and protected. That’s why in dry and chilly weather post-Diwali, your lips tend to get chapped and crack often. If you want a healthy pair of plumped-up kissers, invest in a nourishing lip balm such as Lavenza Multipurpose Lip Balm.
A perfect saviour not only for dry lips, but for dryness anywhere else on your body that needs a little Tender Love and Care.
This dreamy blend is handcrafted with cold pressed oils of Avocado, Almond and Pomegranate and is infused with chamomile and pink grapefruit. This help to deeply nourish, moisturise and reduce pigmentation or darkness of your lips and skin. The citrusy yet mild scent of edible key lime flavour would pucker up your mornings and evenings.
Use it as a lip balm, an overnight lip mask, or to moisturize the dry, parched skin of elbows, knees & hands or to massage on your cuticles to encourage healthy nails this sumptuous balm is all you need to carry with you.
In the end
The over-indulgence in sweets and oily delicacies satiate your tongue during the festivities only to show results later. Much like the cleansing regimen for the house, Diwali is also a reminder to take care of your skin by ensuring adequate care during and after the festivities end. Doing this will enable you to get glowing skin that remains far from breakouts and acne.
The best part is – these easy-to-follow skincare tips help you retain youthful skin in the long run as well.
1. Is face cleansing necessary to include in the post-Diwali routine?
Absolutely. Due to the irregular skincare routine, excess sebum production and pollution, the pores can get clogged and lead to acne. A good cleanser ensures the removal of dirt and oil from the skin to reduce the occurrence of breakouts.
2. When do you apply a toner in your post – Diwali skincare routine?
The right step to apply a toner is after the cleansing process. It enables your facial skin to get rid of remaining dirt and oil while ensuring proper absorption of other skincare products for post-Diwali rejuvenation.
3. How frequently should you apply sunscreen?
Ideally, you must apply sunscreen after every two hours. However, if you’ve indulged in any activity that involves sweating, another coating of sunscreen is recommended.
