It’s the dawn of the festive season, a season of Smiles, Sweets, and Smoke! But, unfortunately, there are moments in a festive season that none can say no to – or stay away from.
That implies one needs to up their skincare game. For, it’s not just about prevention, but a lot about care and treatment that one needs to be good within the festive phase.
Dussehra, Diwali, Dhanteras, Christmas, and then, New Year. With such a long line-up of celebrations that we cannot stay away from – what you can stay close to is a skincare routine that can shield your skin from damage.
Undoubtedly, the festive season calls for stepping out often and meeting and indulging with friends and family; traditionally, we consider it not-so-polite to deny invitations during the festive season, right?
But, along the way, we indulge ourselves in sweets, oily snacks, and late-night sleep routines – all of which take a toll on the skin’s health. So how about being honest with yourself?
Caring Compounds can support and enhance your skincare routine with its products that are safe, sustainable, and, most importantly, honest, delivering to you blends that are fresh, organic, and (Good Manufacturing Practices) GMP-certified.
So, here are ways to keep your skincare routine defined during the season of festivities:
Skincare Routine for Festive Seasons
1. Understand Your Skin
It all starts with knowing your skin and its needs. Is your skin dry or oily? Is it prone to scaly textures, breakouts, unevenness, boils, blemishes, etc.? This is crucial as it helps in identifying the proper treatment.
2. Keep the Sun Away
No matter your skin type, it only helps to keep yourself away from the sun. The Indian skin type is rich in melanin, which makes it easily prone to tanning. Go for an oil-free, lightweight sunscreen that can solve skin problems such as the everyday stress of urban lifestyle, climatic changes, fine lines, and of course, harsh sun.
The Caring Compounds Anti-Pollution Day Detox Cream, an organic face moisturizer, has been formulated for that and with complete honesty.
3. Stay Hydrated
One of the simplest ways to keep the skin hydrated is by drinking water often. It’s a habit we undermine the most, but then this habit works wonders in keeping the skin from looking dry.
If water is not something you’d like to sip often, go for fresh juices. The key to healthy, hydrated skin is to flush out toxins that can steal the natural glow.
4. Go 100% Organic
Staying genuine and honest with yourself can do wonders. One of the easiest ways to embrace honesty – at least for yourself – is not using skin care products that can cause harm to your skin. Instead, adopt clean, chemical-free, and organic solutions.
It’s your skin and the largest and the most visible body part. So, our honest advice to you would be to avoid products that contain propylene, butylene glycols, petroleum, parabens, silicones, artificial colors, and sulphates.
The range of Caring Compounds is Ecocert COSMOS Organic-certified. This means 95% of the ingredients must be plant-based, and a minimum of 20% must be organic. And yes, we are true to our commitment.
Be honest, for your own sake!
While these are ways to make a part of your skincare routine, let’s tell you what you should avoid, considering you will be obligated to indulge, often against your wish, during the festive season. So whether you are a mom or a youngster, adhere to these tips for your skin’s health and happiness during the festive season.
5. Avoid Excess Makeup
Looking pretty is a need on the days of festivals. But putting yourself through skin-harming creams, foundation, styling products, etc., can cause too much harm. Most of all, not removing or cleansing your skin can aggravate the damage.
6. Avoid Sugar
It’s a substance known to suppress the activity of white blood cells and is prone to infections. In addition, it’s known to cause damage by breaking down good proteins – a trigger for faster skin aging. So bingeing on high-sugar sweets and oily snacks can cause excessive dryness and fine lines. So be careful of what you eat!
7. Avoid Smoke/Pollution:
Excessive exposure to environmental smoke can damage the skin by making it dry, even leading to boils, rashes, and acne. To avoid this from happening, wash your body well after the celebrations to trigger any damage smoke causes.
8. No to Cigarettes and Alcohol:
Cigarettes interfere with the blood supply to the skin. Alcohol can flush our hydration from the skin, dehydrating it. Now you know why you should avoid cigarettes and alcohol for your good.
Set a skincare routine for the festive season.
Cleanse: Washing your face with a cleanser removes dirt, impurities, and makeup residue. Next, wash your face with cold or lukewarm water, ideally.
Exfoliate: Over time, the skin gets collected with dead skin cells, making it a barrier for creams or moisturizers to penetrate and work well. Use a face scrub to exfoliate any dead skin cells naturally. Exfoliate with a face scrub once a week. Please do not overdo it, as too much scrubbing can cause more harm to the skin.
Moisturize: Whatever your skin type, don’t forget to use an organic face moisturizer to moisturize your skin. It keeps the face glowing, hydrated, and good-looking.
Sun Block: Use good sunscreen. It blocks harmful sun rays from causing significant skin damage in the long run.
Remember, whatever keeps you busy in life, there’s one person you should always be honest with: Yourself.
