What Should You Include in Your Skincare Routine?

Taking care of the body means that we give love to all of its constituents wholeheartedly. People perform cardio and yoga for a healthy balance of the mind and the body, but do they give as much care to the thin layer of skin that supports them all their life? To ask my friends and family about this turned out to be utterly sad, for nobody’s paying sufficient attention to this aspect of themselves.

It is rather bewildering to find out that most people get done with a gentle bath in the morning which they equate to performing a skincare routine. Skin, while being one of the most delicate parts of the body, sustains bruises and wear as a result of our actions. It is therefore extremely important to give it the additional love that it needs.

A basic skincare routine begins with our understanding of the requirements of our skin. Thereafter, cleansers, toners, and moisturizers shoulder the responsibility of rejuvenating our skin. Before embarking on this journey, it is imperative to identify the type of skin we have in addition to the knowledge that good skin products do not guarantee good skin. Instead, it is how we apply those products, based on our skin types, that guarantees much-needed success.

This stands true for the most basic skin whitening cream as well. In the quest for achieving that instant glow, people wrongly apply these products and suffer from side effects. Skin brightening becomes a natural, self-driven process when we follow a good skincare routine. Here are some extremely effective tips that you can include in your skincare routines. Don’t forget to seek expert opinions or add a personal touch to this routine for reaping the best results!

Toners are preferred by those having extremely oily skin or those needing deep cleansing after wearing heavy makeup. Apart from adding a layer of protection and functioning like a moisturizer, toners serve various other important purposes such as maintaining the PH balance of the skin and preventing the growth of ingrown hair.


As beauticians term it, a serum is a highly concentrated mix of specialized ingredients which nurtures the skin based on its needs. It supplies to the bottom of the skin cells specific nutrients strengthening their roots. Vitamin-C serums are the perfect treat for the skin early in the morning. Serums having hyaluronic acids keep the skin from drying out at night. Serums are the best for improving the elasticity of skin besides their texture.
