SKIN AND HAIR CARE REGIME IN WINTERS
As a compulsive shopaholic I keep looking for products which can make my skin better and blemish free. My skin is oily and acne prone and on top of that I have this urge to keep trying something different. I don’t stick to one product for a long time which has, in a way, helped me because with experimentation I came to know of many many new products which I would have never even thought of trying.
Without diverging further from the topic let me share with you ladies my skin care routine for oily skin as this has been asked to me number of times.
Before I start let me tell you that this is my winter skin care routine and as I am in Hyderabad where there are hardly any winters (compared to Delhi i.e.).
In Morning :-
1. I start by washing my face with forest essential facial ubtan Multani Mitti(have not reviewed it till now but you can see the price and pics here ).I am using it like a face wash, after washing my face I apply a thin coat of the pack . Without mixing anything I just apply the powder on my wet face and then wait for 2 minute or so (invest in making tea for myself and hubby) and then wash it off. After washing I use Fab India vitamin E skin toner and apply Olay India natural white skin fairness cream.
Skin care rotuine before and after shower
2. I massage my skin before taking shower about three times in a week with fab india almond oil.Though I am not much impressed with this oil but I want to complete it asap so that I can try something else.
I use Fab India avocado body wash and Lakme fruit blast strawberry face wash these days while taking shower and use Lotus herbal apri scrub (fresh apricot scrub ) as a body scrub. I scrub my face some 2-3 times a week with Fab India pomegranate scrub though I seriously want to use it every single day
I am using St Ives Vitamin E moisturizer as a body moisturizer and olay sun block. Now I am relaising that I have too much to review now
I don’t use a particular shampoo and conditioner and presently I am using Biotique Bio walnut bark fresh lift body building shampoo and Fab India protein conditioner.I am using loreal expert shine hair serum after shampooing and wash my hair 3-4 times a week.
With in week I do take out time to use hair packs which are a must for me otherwise split ends are a big problem. I use DIY face packs according to my skin requirement. If it has broken out then may be a neem pack or baba ramdev kanti lep acne pack . For blemishes I had been using tea tree oil which hardly helped me though so nowdays I am depending more on forrest essential ubtan..
I wont’ sleep with make up and if I am too tired then use baby wipes or wet wipes.I am using manning wet wipes nowadays .If I have little time and energy left in me then I wash my face and apply olay india white fairness night cream and if i feel my skin needs extra moisutrization then forrest essential virgin sesame oil as well.
Whenever I get time I use deep cleansing method as this is something which has helped to a great extrent in reducing my skin pores.
For my hands I use Fab India hand lemon intensive hand cream.Once in 10 days I use Forrest essential manicure also which I am completely in love with .
For feets I scrub them with body scrub and then apply any cream which I come across and I love to pamper them with a pedicure every month or so.
This completes my present skin and hair care routine which is pretty much working for me and is not breaking me out frequently.
Will you share your current skin and hair care routine with me and let me know what is working for your skin nowadays and what not ??
