Hello ladies 🙂 Today I will be sharing with you something which is my very own experimentation – My Skin Care Journey from Dry Pigmented Skin to Dewy Healthy Skin. When I was a teenager going to college, I was not aware of skin care, makeup, neither I knew about so many makeup and beauty blogs. Trust me being a part of this blogging industry has taken my knowledge about skin care and experience to new heights. But earlier those were the days when I was not even aware of sunscreens. One fine day in summers I was not able to recognize my own skin tone. I was that badly tanned. Thus, I started using sunscreen. But gradually I saw other girls and their skin looks so glowing and healthy. What should I do to achieve the same?? And finally I realized that healthy glowing skin cannot be achieved overnight. You need to follow a skin care routine religiously for months even years and then only you can notice some good changes. Thus, I am sharing My Skin Care Journey from Dry Pigmented Skin to Dewy Healthy Skin.
Kindly note that I have severely dry skin. My skin also has some very light discoloration only on both apples of the cheeks. Because of having a very dry skin and overworking my skin gets dull very soon. These were my major skin concerns. So lets get started with my skin care journey.
My first skin care product which I use till date is the sunscreens. The first sunscreen which I used was from the lotus brand. And till date no other brand has been able to replace my love with lotus sunscreens.
Face Wash :
This is the first thing which you do in the day for your skin. Being a dry skinned girls you should use a moistursing but cleansing face wash. I also used scrubs on daily basis but many people advised me against daily usage of scrubs. So, I won’t suggest you that. Some of the face washes which I liked were: Dr. Batra daily glow face wash, Nivea aqua effect skin refining scrub, Nomarks neem face wash, jovees jojoba and neem face scrub.
After cleansing your face, you should prepare it for the day ahead. This is the first step in prepping up my skin for the day. Since the day I heard of serums I was attracted towards them. I loved their light texture. I have used a number of serums till date and some of them which have worked for me are Lakme Youth Infinity skin firming serum, Clinique pore refining solutions correcting serum.
In order to keep my skin moisturized throughout the day I have used day time light but moistursing creams. Some of the day cremes are Lakme Youth Infinity Day creme, Lakme Perfect Radiance Intense Whitening Day creme, Za true white day creme.
Now, if you wish you can apply BB creams on the top of it. But since I am covering the skin care part only so I am not including the BB creams here.
After the day, comes time for the night skin care. But before night skin care I also used to apply something to get rid of daily dirt and tiredness from my face.
Face Packs :
I have also been a fan of face packs. Some of the face packs which I strongly recommend for dry skinned people are Dabur Gulabari Saffron Turmeric fairness face pack, Banjaras 15 minute multani+fairness face pack.
Night skin care also begins with cleansing with the same face wash and applying serum before the night creme.
Night Creme :
Night is the time when your skin should have some intense moisturisers which will take care of your dry patches. Thus, I used Olay natural white night creme, Oriflame optimals white night creme, Kama ayurveda rejuvenating and brightening ayurvedic night creme.
This was all about My Skin Care Journey from Dry Pigmented Skin to Dewy Healthy Skin. Belo is my before & after pic.. you can clearly notice the difference!
But along with using these products you should not forget the following 2 very important things : Increase your water intake and Consume 1-2 seasonal fruits on daily basis. That was all from my side. Let me know if you liked the post. Will be looking forward to your comments.
