Skincare products

Who does not dream of an infinite youth and a glowing, young-looking skin? Most of our daily skin care regimen revolves around the only desire to hold on to our youthful skin for as long as possible. Be it a delicate one minute cleansing, moisturizing regimen or a more rigorous bed time skin care ritual; practically everyone has a customized skin care routine. Although each of us intends the best for our skins while practicing our routines, more likely than not, we are all found guilty of a few common practices which aid in faster ageing of our skin rather than maintaining its suppleness and youth.

Make-up for newbies

You know, the most beautiful thing about makeup is that it has scope for individuality.

Make-up can be fun, and exciting; but at the same time it can get overwhelming. Each one of us has a phase in our lives when we feel like exploring the make-up aisles; but looking at the huge variety, we seem lost. Same happened with me, and I felt like having an expert guide to lead me through my make-up hoarding sessions. But you are the few lucky ones, for whom we have compiled a go-to list of the bare basics of make-up which you couldn’t and shouldn’t do without.

FACE:

Starting with the face, I would recommend getting your face prepped. Think of make-up as an art, you as a make-up artist and your face as a canvas. And art looks beautiful if the artist has a clean canvas to work upon.

  1. Toner: Invest in a toner. End of story. I have no idea why people tend to skip up this one little step. Some of you might be thinking, toner is skin care, why have I included it under make-up. I know technically toner is not make-up, but I swear that toned skin holds on to make-up beautifully. Toner helps in tightening your pores, and even helps the moisturizer to penetrate in your skin much deeper. And a moisturized skin with tight, less visible pores helps in flawless, even make-up application. After cleansing your face use a cotton swab doused with toner, to remove any excess cleansing solution left over on the skin to give you a flawlessly clean face to work with.

FAB INDIA TEA TREE SKIN TONER is what I religiously use and swear by. It works beautifully.
