The trusted trio of skincare
"Beautiful skin requires commitment, not a miracle"
- Erno Laszlo
What's the trusted trio? Any guesses? They make your skin feel clean, clear, refreshed and purified. A skincare junkie and a skincare novice - everyone uses these products. They are the reason why dirt and impurities don’t stay on your skin. We know you’ve guessed it by now.
We’ve all been there. What is the difference between a face wash, a face scrub and a face mask? Do you even need all of them? Not to worry, we have you covered!
Skincare Numero Uno
A face wash is a foaming cleanser that needs to be washed off your face. A face wash's job is to remove impurities and deeper-seated debris and also cleanse pores, thanks to its foaming action. If you're wearing a lot of makeup, or have been exposed to a lot of dust and pollution, it might be a good idea to use a cleanser first, before using a face wash. You should ideally use a face wash as soon as you wake up and you come back home from work in the evenings so your face is "impurity-free" while you are asleep.
Skin Renewal Booster
Scrubs are used to remove dead skin cells on the face. When this is done, your skin looks younger and feels lighter. Dead skin cells make us look older than our age. With regular use of facial scrubs, skin becomes smooth and glowing. Scrubs can be oil-based, cream-based or clay-based, and include sand-like grains made of walnut shells, or sugar, for example, which act as an agent for exfoliation. However, one should avoid using a face scrub daily as it may cause skin irritation. Restrict the usage of a scrub to 2 times a week.
Using a face mask is a commitment to bettering your skin. When you apply a mask, you’re taking time to focus on the health of your skin with a product that addresses a particular concern. Whether it’s breakout control, brightening, or anti-ageing, there are tons of benefits to using a face mask. Face masks dive down deeper into the pores than regular daily cleansers. They can help draw out dirt, oil and impurities from below the skin’s surface, giving you a more thorough cleansing session. Face masks don’t have to be used continuously before you notice a visible difference to your skin. Masks can help skin look and feel softer, smoother, refreshed and replenished with moisture in minutes, which is perfect when you need instant results. You can use your favourite face mask once a week.
