How much do you really care for your skin? Let’s be honest. Alarming work hours and unrealistic deadlines cannot always excuse you from basic skin care routine. Wait a second. When was the last time that you got choked, gasping for fresh air amidst smoke and dust? Well, you cannot expect your skin to cope with all of that and more.
Coconut oil, olive oil or Pure Argan Oil from Moroccanoil are few of the must-have essentials in your beauty routine. Apply a dab of oil onto your face and a handful to your body in the morning before you use a cleanser. Leave it on for 5 – 10 minutes and then wash them off with a mild cleanser.
Tip: Pure Argan Oil gives positive results even for oily skin. It helps reduce oil secretion in your skin while restoring pH balance. So, don’t shy away from using natural oils every time you cleanse your face or body.
Yes, it’s right. Like plants, our skin also needs to be well hydrated to stay in good health. Not only to do with increasing intake of water, but also to go for deep hydrating techniques like Moroccanoil’s Intense Hydrating Treatment. Its more apt for those who detest applying oil on their skin or find it too clumsy to carry along with them.
Tip: Most skin problems arise out of lack of nourishment and adequate amount of water content in the body. When applied onto your body, it melts into oil and helps replenish your skin’s natural healthy texture.
Is your cleansing soap sulfate-free and paraben free? The fact is that liquid or bar cleansers doesn’t make much of a difference unless they are free from toxic additives. Try Cleansing Bar from Moroccanoil which is infused with pure argan oil and rich shea butter.
Tip: Bar cleansers are usually not skin-friendly, especially with dry skin. But, Cleansing Bar is great for dry skin, too. It’s made of all-natural ingredients that are thoroughly moisturising in nature. Or use it coupled with Dry Body Oil to better nourish your skin.
Are you a believer in shower power? Well, we don’t want to hold you back from indulging yourself with a nurturing body care routine. Shower gel – Fragrance Originale is your best bet on making most of your bath time, refreshing and pampering your senses.
Tip: Delicately fragranced, it can act as a soothing body cleanser once you’re done with oiling or simply post work-out as you sweat out all day’s work hitting the gym. It also proves to be therapeutically calming with its exquisite aroma.
Skin care routine can vary on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Though basics like cleansing and moisturizing needs to done every day, use a scrub only once/twice a week. Or it will rip off essential natural oils from your skin, leaving it parched. So, even before you start off with setting your daily skin care, get your facts right.
