What Is A CTM Routine?

A CTM routine is a very dependable beauty regimen that essentially consists of washing, toning, and moisturizing. This is a simple yet effective routine that begins with cleansing your face to get rid of debris and pollutants. Toning is the next step to restore the skin's normal pH level. Finally, a moisturizer is applied on top to keep the skin moisturized for an extended period of time. In order to fortify this regimen and shield skin from the sun's damaging UVA and UVB radiation, sunscreen use is also necessary.

Although most individuals are aware of the CTM regimen, many choose not to follow it every day. However, it's imperative that you follow it twice a day for maximum skin brightness, health, and freshness. The first one needs to be completed in the morning, and the second one just before bed. We promise that if you follow this easy regimen in the right sequence, especially with chemical free Ayurvedic Skincare Products, your skin will look amazing.

Benefits Of A CTM Routine?

Here are some of the key benefits of a CTM routine:-

1. Restores Skin's pH Balance: A good toner helps balance the skin's pH level, which is important for healthy and resilient skin. An optimal pH level ensures that your skin can defend against harmful microorganisms and environmental stressors.

2. Prevents Premature Aging: Regular use of a CTM routine helps prevent premature aging by keeping the skin well-hydrated, reducing the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Glowing and Radiant Skin: A well-executed CTM routine can result in a radiant and healthy complexion. By consistently cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, you remove dulling dead skin cells, revealing fresher, brighter skin underneath.

4. Acne Prevention: Acne can be prevented by keeping pores clean and minimizing bacteria, debris, and sebum accumulation through proper cleansing and toning.

You can enhance these benefits with Ayurvedic Skincare Products with natural ingredients.  

How To Follow A CTM Routine?

Following a CTM (Cleansing, Toning, Moisturizing) routine is a fundamental step in maintaining healthy and radiant skin. Here's a simple guide to follow a CTM routine using Ayurvedic Skincare Products:-

Step 1- Cleansing

Start by washing your face with a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser. Use lukewarm water to wet your face, apply the cleanser, and gently massage it using upward, circular motions. This helps to remove dirt, makeup, and excess oil without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Rinse thoroughly and pat your face dry with a clean towel.

Step 2- Toning

Apply a toner that suits your skin type. Toners help to balance your skin's pH levels, tighten pores, and prepare your skin to absorb the next steps. Use a cotton pad or your clean fingers to apply the toner evenly on your face. Allow it to dry naturally, or gently pat it in.

Step 3- Moisturizing

Finish your CTM routine by applying a suitable moisturizer. Moisturizers lock in hydration, prevent moisture loss, and keep your skin soft and supple. Choose a moisturizer based on your skin type, whether it's oily, dry, or combination. Apply it evenly, focusing on areas prone to dryness.

Note:- In addition to the CTM routine, you should also consider other skincare practices, such as exfoliation and sunscreen application. Exfoliate your skin 1-2 times a week to remove dead skin cells and promote skin renewal. Furthermore, always use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 during the day to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Factors For CTM Routine

  • Skin Type

Understanding your skin type is essential. Whether you have dry, oily, combination, sensitive, or normal skin will determine the type of products you should use. Choose Ayurvedic Skincare Products (cleansers, toners, and moisturizers) that cater to your specific skin type to address its unique characteristics and challenges.

  • Age

As you age, your skincare needs to change. Mature skin may require products with anti-aging ingredients like retinol, while younger skin may focus on prevention and hydration.

  • Products and Ingredients

Select Ayurvedic Skincare Products that are suited for your skin type and concerns. Look for ingredients that align with your skincare goals, such as hydrating ingredients for dry skin, oil-control ingredients for oily skin, or soothing ingredients for sensitive skin.

  • Environmental Factors

Your environment plays a role in your skincare needs. Consider factors like humidity, pollution, and sun exposure when selecting products. Use appropriate sun protection and adapt your routine as the seasons change.

  • Consultation

For more complex skin issues, consider consulting with a dermatologist or skincare professional who can provide personalized recommendations based on your specific concerns and goals.

Some Important Points To Note for CTM Routine

  • Before using any product (even Ayurvedic Skincare Products) in your routine, do a patch test to rule out allergies or skin irritation.

  • Don't start your regimen with all new items at once. One by one, include each into your CTM practice.

  • Prior to determining whether or not a skincare regimen is effective, follow it for at least four weeks.

  • It is recommended to see a specialist if you have a serious skin issue such as acne.

  • Use our cleaning balm also know as the baby oil to remove any makeup or sunscreen you apply during the day before starting a CTM program.

How To Perform CTM Using Kitchen Ingredients?

Performing a CTM (Cleansing, Toning, Moisturizing) routine using kitchen ingredients is a cost-effective and natural way to take care of your skin. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:-


  • Start by washing your hands thoroughly to prevent transferring any germs to your face.
  • In a small bowl, mix one tablespoon of plain yogurt (contains lactic acid for gentle exfoliation) with one teaspoon of honey (a natural antibacterial and moisturizing agent).
  • Apply this mixture to your face, gently massaging it using circular motions.
  • Leave it on for a couple of minutes to allow the ingredients to work their magic.
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a clean towel.

  • For a natural toner, use diluted apple cider vinegar. Mix one part apple cider vinegar with three parts water. This helps balance your skin's pH.
  • Apply the solution to your face using a cotton ball or pad. Be sure to avoid the eye area.
  • Allow it to dry on your skin or gently pat it in.


  • Create a homemade moisturizer by combining aloe vera gel and a few drops of olive oil. Aloe vera hydrates, while olive oil adds moisture and antioxidants.
  • Apply a small amount of this mixture to your face and neck, massaging it in gently.

Frequently Asked questions (FAQ)

1. How often should I follow the CTM routine? 

To maintain healthy and radiant skin, it's recommended to follow the CTM (Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing) routine twice a day: once in the morning and once before bedtime. Consistent morning and night application ensures the best results and keeps your skin in its best condition.

2. Should I moisturize at night if I have acne?

    Yes, moisturizing at night is important even if you have acne-prone skin. Use a non-comedogenic, oil-free moisturizer to maintain skin hydration. Skipping moisturizer can lead to skin dryness, which may exacerbate acne, as your skin may produce more oil to compensate for the dryness.
