As you prepare for the festival, we hope you’ve started your skincare too! If not yet, don’t worry, get into the routine right away. Diwali is the time when we overeat. Binge-eating oily food and lots of sweet treats are enough to cause breakouts. It’s not only to promote the glow for the festive season that a committed skincare routine is important during this time of the year, but it’s super essential for the long run. It’s absolutely excusable to lose track of our consumption and sleeping patterns during the festive season, and we know how unavoidable indulgence is. Everything we eat (those extra sugar treats), compromised sleep, frequent contact with environmental aggressors, and dressing up (make-up) can all adversely impact skin health. Here are some quick Pre-Diwali skincare tips to welcome the fresh, festive face:
Get creative & fun with your Pre-Diwali hydration with facial oils: Facial oils are probably simpler than you imagine!
Double the potency and mix a couple of drops of our Precious Brightening Face Oil
with the Precious Brightening Crème
and let it work its magic! Ultra-hydrating, smooth and dewy skin for the entire festive season.
Moisturisers have been placed in front of the skincare shelves, but bring the toners forward too: Dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, normal skin - all skin types benefit from toner. Toner is water-based, which means it can go deeper into the pores to melt away the make-up, dirt and oil. Our Precious Brightening Toning Essence helps us feel refreshed and rejuvenated without indulging in elaborated skincare rituals!
Carry your glow, wherever you go: Always carry your SPF, and other essentials like moisturisers or toning essence - whichever’s your safest bet with you while you step out for all the festive fun!
Introduce a double-cleanse to your routine: Since you would be applying a lot of make-up during the festive season, it is important to remove it before going to bed, without fail.
The soft, skin-melting, BALMY texture of our Precious Brightening Cleansing Balm
is so addictive! Lift away makeup and impurities without stripping the skin using the Precious Brightening Cleansing Balm, and then follow it up with the Precious Brightening Facewash.
Because the only bags we like are the ones full of festive treats, not under the eyes!
Prep your skin well before putting make-up: If a glassy dewy face is your taste, invest time in layering your organic skincare products properly before you apply make-up. Our personal favourite has to be the Precious Brightening Serum + Crème for the airy-velvet finish and love how it locks in the moisture for long hours!
Lastly, give your skin some breathing space, don’t overdo: Give it a break and regenerate naturally. Or probably for some extra love, use a Jade Roller with the right products to unclog the congested skin and de-stress it effectively!
While we enjoy the treats & time with our friends and family, just make sure to take some time for yourself too. Here’s to fun-filled days, reaching out to that ‘one more’ piece of your favourite sweet, losing sleep over gambling/ dancing nights, and loads of other happy, tiny little things!
