For cleaning face, always opt for a gentle face wash with low pH level to prevent the natural moisture. A good face wash with natural humectants like honey and aloevera maintains optimal skin equilibrium and also prevents skin from dehydration. Dry skin causes wrinkles faster. Sometimes, Anti Wrinkle Cream works effectively to reduce the unwanted wrinkles and getting back brighter and moisturized skin than before. Massaging with a good night serum aka Kumkumadi Tailam will also nourish and moisturize the skin.
