Do you cleanse tone andÂ moisturiseÂ the right way?
Do you hate to cleanse tone and moisturise your skin before bedtime? Do you forget to tone and moisturise your skin after cleansing?
Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising is the most important part of daily skincare schedule. We often chose to ignore it completely or miss a step out of it. But, the truth remains, the secret to a healthy skin is nothing but these 3 elements.
Then here it is the article to motivate you to cleanse tone and moisturize your skin before bedtime. All throughout the day, your face gets exposed to dirt, pollution, germs and to the rough climate. To remove dirt and other harmful particles from your skin, cleansing it is a crucial step. Cleansing your skin means getting rid of oil, dirt and make up from your skin, without stripping it off of its natural moisture.
Due to these factors it is must to cleanse your skin before bedtime so as to not let the dust and dirt accumulate inside your skin making it dull overtime. Cleansing will not just help you to tackle with the skin problems but with that toning and moisturising is equally important. Not everyone is aware about the importance of cleansing toning and moisturising, so here we give you the ways of doing it with the perfect products.
Cleansing: A good cleansing routine is essential for removing make up and dirt, which can block your pores and can lead to an outbreak in spots. Cleansing should be done twice daily. It should not exceed to three as normally only twice the cleanser is useful, even if you have oily skin you donât need to wash your face thrice. That will in turn leave your skin damaged. Cleansing too frequently can strip the skin of its natural oils, which will make those with dry skin have even drier skin. It will also make those with oily skin have even oilier skin, as the glands will become more active to replace it. The most important factor is before starting to cleanse, you should wash your hands thoroughly to remove any dirt or grease that might have built up. Then using a gentle cleanser, clean your skin using circular motions. It helps in improving blood circulation and removes the left over dirt and make up from the skin, making it clean and glowing. Massage the cleansing gel into the skin, particularly concentrating on the corners of the mouth, the creases near the nose, the chin, and around the neck. Once the gel has been massaged in thoroughly wash away your face with the water and wipe your face with a soft cotton towel.

Toning: Â What a toner basically does is that it removes any residue left behind by your cleanser and it also tightens the pores, helps in evening out the skin tone and cools and calms down the face and freshens it up. Toning will help keep your skin clear and firm by leave you with a layer of new healthy skin cells. Check the correct toner and choose the one that is best suited to your specific skin type and problem area. Avoid those toners that have alcohol as one of their main ingredients. This is because alcohol destroys the collagen present under the surface of the skin. Using cotton pads, apply toner around your nose and chin, across your cheeks and across your forehead. Using toner before bedtime helps your skin to feel fresh and free.
Moisturising: Our skin repairs itself at night, when you give it some rest. By using a good moisturiser, you help your skin to repair itself faster and regain its elasticity and glow again. Dry skinned beauties should always use a good moisturiser made up for their skin type whereas those with combination and oily skin should use a good water based moisturiser. If you are super duper lucky and have normal skin, then you can use either a heavy moisturiser or water based one. As dry skin is one of the main cause of wrinkles it is very necessary for all skin type beauties to moisturise your face while going to bed. Apply moisturiser lightly to your face using your finger tips. Start by rubbing the cream into your forehead, working outwards from the centre. Gently apply the cream around the eyes, making sure you donât get it to close to them. Massage the cream into your cheeks and around your jaw line, around your chin, mouth and nose, then around your throat and your neck. Donât apply too much moisturiser, as this will just sit heavily, and prevent your skin from breathing. Also make sure all excess cream is rubbed in.
It may be boring after a hectic day to do all this for your skin but it hardly takes few minutes for the process which will later benefit your skin and the self-confidence to carry the best skin.
