Keep scrolling to learn the game-changing way to incorporate sunscreen in your skincare. This CTM (cleansing, toning, moisturizing) routine is what the Japanese follow to get that flawless look.

A hydrating face wash

The foremost step to face care is washing your face with a face cleanser that does not leave your face dry. It should deep cleanse by removing all the dirt and oil while keeping your skin supple. A general rule of thumb is to pick a face wash suitable for all skin types.

The Thyme Organic Dryness Control Face Wash contains pink pepper essence oil, lavender extract, Apple Extract, Carrot Extract, Glycerin, and aqua. These ingredients nourish and moisturise your face while cleansing at the same time.


 

No more clogged pores with a toner

The next step is to use a gentle face toner. Toners can help close or shrink pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing. This reduces the penetration of impurities into your skin. The perfect toner will hydrate, provide anti-ageing benefits, and may also boost collagen production.

Our Femica skin care products comprise the Love co. Rose Water Spray For Face, a 3-in-1 toner. It is rich in vitamin C, an anti-ageing ingredient that boosts collagen production and gives a healthy glow.

Invest in a face serum

Serums are the new hype in skin care. Why so? They are supposed to deliver high concentrations of active acids/ingredients for effective skin care. Your morning skincare must include a vitamin C serum for the face because it helps with pigmentation and prevents sun damage and free radicals.

The highly potent COSIQ Vitamin C-23% Face Serum contains only two ingredients – ethylated ascorbic acid three and ethyl ascorbic acid. These vitamin c derivatives convert into 100% L – ascorbic acid – best for skin tightening.

A Hydrating Moisturiser

No matter your skin type, the skin usually gets oily during the day, especially in the summer. One of the common misconceptions is that people with oily skin should avoid moisturizers. Of course not! Moisturisers for oily skin help retain the water in your skin and help reduce the production of excess oil. Look for water-based or oil-free moisturisers if you have oily or acne-prone skin.

The Earth Rhythm Phyto-Ceramide Deep Moisturiser contains hyaluronic acid (the OG acid) that helps reduce fine lines and retain moisture. The vitamin E in it also prevents skin damage caused by free radicals.

Product Description: Phyto Ceramides, a plant-derived lipid mixture consists of phospholipids and at least 10% sphingolipids and is easily able to penetrate the skin. It helps to create a barrier to prevent permeability. This locks moisture into your skin, which helps prevent dryness and irritation. It also helps protect your epidermis from environmental damage. Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles retaining moisture to the skin, creating a plumping effect. When the skin is protected and hydrated, increased skin cell production can take place, as the skin isn't busy fighting for hydration. This leads to smoother, plumper skin cells Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may be effective at reducing UV damage in the skin. And vitamin E applied topically may help nourish and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals.

How to Use:   Apply this moisturizer on the face and neck after cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and after using your serum. For best results, use both day and night

Product Ingredients: Distilled Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Cetearyl Glucoside, Acetamido Ethoxyethanol, Propanediol, Butylene Glycol (and) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Phospholipids, Sphingolipids, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, laminaria Digitata Extract & cetyl-pg Hydroxyethyl Palmitamide, ceramide 1, Ceramide 2, Ceramide 3, ceramide 4, Ceramide 6 II, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Phenoxyethanol, Triethylene Glycol.

FAQs

1. What is the best sunscreen for oily skin?

Water-based and non-comedogenic sunscreen is best for oily skin.

2. How to choose the right SPF?

Higher SPF numbers mean higher protection. For instance, SPF 30 sunscreens filter out about 97% of UVB rays compared to SPF 50, which filters about 98%. SPF 60 will filter out a little more. So if you are indoors, you can go for lower SPFs but higher if you plan to be outdoors.

Try to choose sunscreen for oily skin as you will tend to sweat more with it.

3. Is it safe to use vitamin C and sunscreen?

It is the best combination. If you apply vitamin c and forget sunscreen, be ready to welcome sunburns. Vitamin C becomes unstable when exposed to light and causes hyperpigmentation. So let it seep in, apply sunscreen and then step out.
