1. Double cleansing is the key
If you are a skincare fanatic, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the term double cleansing. Now the reason why double cleaning is extremely important is because double cleansing helps you get rid of all the dirt and cleanses all the impurities from your skin. It further unclogs your pores thus preventing acne and breakouts, leaving you with flawless, crystal-clear skin.
The ideal way to double cleanse is by using a cleansing balm or a good makeup remover followed by a gentle ayurvedic face wash. Avoid using makeup wipes since they do more harm than good, also you are supposed to double cleanse daily, even if you’re not wearing makeup. The best face cleanser should be natural and ayurvedic.
2. Incorporating toners
While face toners do not actually shrink the size of your pores as it was believed earlier, it does in fact maintain the natural pH of your skin thus preventing any bacterial growth or infection on the skin. It also prevents fungal infection on your skin thus combating your skin from reactive acne.
While selecting a toner for your regime, you need to make sure that your toner is alcohol-free since alcohol-based toners may be irritating for certain skin types. The best natural alternative to toners is rose face water. All you have to do is take some rose face water on a cotton pad and gently tap the product onto your skin, follow it up with a kumkumadi serum for face or a moisturizer.
3. Say yes to serums for face
Serum for face have always been a huge part of Korean skincare much before it was popularized by western media. So why serum for face? Serum for face are more concentrated and lighter in consistency compared to moisturizer for face, thus it is easier for it to easily penetrate into the skin and target problematic areas. There is a serum for face designed for every skin concern, be it a serum for pigmentation, skin texture, blackheads, serum for oily skin, anti aging serum, serum with natural retinol and the list goes on. So to achieve the viral glass skin, you need to target the root cause of the problem and serum for face will do the same for you! Kumkumadi tailam is a natural ayurvedic face serum which not only deals with a lot of skin issues but also suits all skin types.
4. Welcome natural face oils
Face oils have gained massive popularity over the past few years and it makes sense since it has some amazing benefits which are worth the hype. Face oils, especially the ones with all-natural ingredients are great for giving you the glossy, dewy look that you have always dreamt of having.
The key factor to achieving glass skin is proper hydration, if your skin lacks hydration then start using face oils or serum for face which deeply nourishes the skin and make your skin healthy,otherwise it will only end up looking dull and dry. So, to obtain optimal hydration, face oils such as Kumkumadi Face Oil called Kumkumadi Tailam does a great job since it deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin thus giving it an instant glow.
