As a part of routine cleansing, people settle for a face wash and moisturiser which do not clean beyond the skin’s surface, and cannot makeup residue and repair the damage due to exposure to the sun. Inappropriate cleaning techniques and wrong choice of products can further damage your skin. A simple three step skincare regimen can do wonders to the skin retaining the youthfulness of the skin – Cleanser, Toner and Moisturizer (CTM).
Cleanser – Step1: Cleansing dirt, make up and excess oil, leaves the skin soft fresh and clean. This process opens the pores and allows deep pore cleansing.
