10 Most Important Skincare Do’s And Dont’s For Healthy Skin : Your Ultimate Guide To Flawless Face


We all want to look our best everyday, have a nice spotless skin, get rid of wrinkles and dark circles, have healthy hair and the list of our wishes is endless. We look for the best available skincare products in the market and try different DIY recipes. Sometimes they work but sometimes they don’t. Reason behind this is that there are a lot of small yet crucial things which we ignore that can make a huge difference to our skin.

  1. Remove your makeup : The most important rule for flawless skin if you wear makeup ( be it light or heavy), is do not sleep with makeup on your face. This is can create more damage than you can even imagine. Makeup will clog your pores leading to acne and will not allow the skin to recover leading to ageing. If you are too lazy to wash your face post a long day at work or a party, the least you could do is to either use a makeup remover or a wet wipe.
  2. Clean your pillow cover :If you wake up with a zit on your face despite washing your face the last night, then probably your pillow is the culprit. Be it a cotton, satin, silk or any other pillow cover fabric, make sure to clean it every 3-4 days.
  3. Use a Separate face towel : This one is something we all must have done,using the same towel to wipe our face and body. Your body towel might get bacteria from any missed unclean spot and that can easily transfer to your face, if you use the same towel. So, always use a separate towel for your face and make sure to clean it every 2-3 days.
  4. Do Drink Enough Water : If you complain of flaky skin, dark circles, acne, pigmentation, wrinkles, dull skin, dry scalp etc etc, then please check how many glasses of water you had. Almost every skin and hair problem can be solved to a large extent if you keep yourself hydrated. Go and grab a glass of water right now. 😉
  5. Do wear Sunscreen : I can’t stress this enough but NEVER EVER step outside without a sunblock. You may not realize but one of the major factors behind your acne, pigmentation, ageing and dark spots is an absence of sun protection. Be it summer, winter, spring or any season, don’t skip using a sunscreen. You may pick any one suitable to your skin or else you can find one in my articles I have written lately. (Oily Skin Care Routine and Dry Skin Care Routine).
  6. Don’t Touch your face : Most of us have a habit of touching our face quite frequently. Have you ever realized how many bacteria you welcome to your face by doing this? Throughout the day, at home, office, college or anywhere, we touch so many things which have bacteria in abundance (Door handles, lift buttons, Staircase handrail,etc) and now imagine using the same hands on your face, one major culprit for your skin problems.
  7. Don’t Share makeup – I know it is good to be generous, but if it is at the cost of your hygiene, then its a big NO NO. Sharing your makeup stuff especially kajal, lipstick, makeup sponge and brushes will not only damage your skin but also of the one whom you are trying to help. This may lead to eye infections, cold sores and other skin problems.
  8. Always wash makeup sponge and brushes – Makeup tools also gather a lot of bacteria, dirt, oil, pollution, dead cells, etc and using them without washing may clog your pores and cause infections. So, it is highly recommended to wash them from time to time.
  9. Wrong way of applying eye cream – Even after using an eye cream regularly, your dark circles are getting worse then, one major reason could be the way you apply the cream. If we put too much pressure, the blood vessels gets damaged and leak blood which makes the skin around the eyes look dark. Always use your ring finger to apply an eye cream because it gives a gentle pressure and does not damage the delicate skin around the eyes.
  10. Use of Cellphone – If you have acne along the sides of your cheek near the hairline, then you know whom to blame for it. 😉 Our cellphone carries bacteria and its heat helps them to breed which when comes in contact with your face causes acne. Not only this, the overheating might be a cause of your dark spots, the visible light can cause dark circles and collagen damage which ultimately causes wrinkles. So, its better to clean your phone screen daily and reduce your phone usage.


You might be familiar with a lot of things mentioned above but what is more important is how often do we follow this. So, to get the perfect looking skin, stop the wrong habits and start the good ones and see the difference in a few days.

Get Rid Of Skin Tan and Ingrown Hair : Effective Body Scrubs For Your Skin

As much as our face needs regular scrubbing so does our body, especially in winters. During this season, our skin gets more dry and patchy and when we skip scrubbing, it gets thick and uneven.
The dead skin clogs the pores of the body which doesn’t let the moisturizer sink into it. Also, scrubbing will help to remove ingrown hair. So, it is important to include a body scrub in your regime.

Make sure not to use very harsh scrub as it may damage the dry skin. Always use a moisturizer post using a scrub or else use an oil/cream based scrub. This will not only scrub off the dead skin but also make keep it soft and moisturized. If you are looking out for some effective products to try, then I have listed down some of them.

1. Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing Tan Removal Scrub – This is actually a face scrub but its granules are gritty which can be used as a body scrub too.

Apricot and Aloe Vera are very good for the skin and the best thing I like about this product is that it is very effective in getting rid of the ingrown hair. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 60/-
4. Vaadi Herbals Face & Body Scrub – If you are looking for some herbal and Ayurvedic formula based scrub, then I would recommend this body scrub.

Since, the skin on the other body parts is not as sensitive as that of the face, one can do body scrubbing quite frequently.

Get Soft And Supple Skin this Winter : Skincare Guide For Dry Skin

Finally winters have arrived. The season of fog, cold breeze, roasted sweet potatoes, gajar ka halwa and what not. 😀
But this season comes with some extra care for people with dry skin because their skin gets too dry, itchy and flaky. It is difficult to keep your skin moist in such a cold weather and the hunt for moisture retaining products go on and on.

If you are struggling with dry skin, then you may try this routine involving products which will retain the moisture in your skin and make it soft and supple.

1. Face wash – Do not wash your face more than twice a day as it will take away all the moisture from your skin. Also, make sure not to use hot water for washing your face instead you may use warm water. For dry skin, one needs a face wash that not only cleanses the skin but also prevents it from drying, so always look for soap free cleansers. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is one such option. It is a  mild cleanser which leaves skin soft and smooth. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 428/-.

2. Toner- A toner is really good for dry skin to wipe out dirt from the pores but make sure to use alcohol free toners because alcohol tends to dry out the skin. I find rose water as the best toner for dry skin because it is very hydrating, soothing and nourishing. You may use rose water from any brand but the one I would suggest is the VLCC Rose Water Toner, one of the best toners in an affordable range. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 150/-.
3. Scrub – Scrubbing your face with a scrub twice a week is very essential to get rid of dead skin cells. But make sure not to use very gritty and harsh scrubs as they might damage your skin. One of the mild scrubs which you may try is the Biotique Bio Walnut Purifying & Polishing Scrub. It has walnut oil to replenish your skin as well as soft granules to remove the dead skin. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 199/-.

4. Mask – A well hydrating face mask will help restore the moisture of your dry skin. Use a mask twice a week after scrubbing your face. You may try Aroma Magic Hydrating Seaweed Pack for that baby soft skin. It has a gel consistency and gives a dewy and fresh look to the skin. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 395/-.

5. Moisturizer – The most important step for dry skin is moisturizing. People with such skin type look for such a product which can lock in the moisture and keep the skin hydrated for a longer time. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion For Sensitive Or Dry Skin is one such product. It binds in the moisture, improves the texture of the skin and keeps it hydrated for a long time. Click Here To Buy.
Price – 684/-.

6. Sunblock – No skincare routine is complete without a sunscreen. Sunscreen is a must for all skin types in any weather. To prevent pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, etc, always wear a sunscreen before stepping out. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ is a nice light weight sunscreen which you may use. Though it is oil free, still it works well for dry skin and doesn’t leave a white cast on the face. Click Here To Buy.

  2. Toner – I have seen many people who skip this step but a toner is very important in any skincare regime for oily skin. After washing your face, take some toner on a cotton pad and wipe your face. It helps to regulate the pore size and cleanse the pores. You may use Lotus Herbals Basil tone Cucumber Basil Clarifying And Balancing Toner. Enriched with extracts of Basil and cucumber, it is very soothing for acne prone skin. Click Here To Buy.

  3. Scrub – We must scrub our face twice a week. This is really important to get rid of the dead skin, impurities, blackheads and excess oil. You may use Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Scrub. Needless to mention the benefits of neem for acne, so this will absolutely make a huge difference to your acne and its scars. Click Here To Buy.

  4. Mask- When we are talking about skincare routine, we can not forget the mask. This step should also be done twice a week after scrubbing. A mask is really important to deeply cleanse the skin, absorb all the excess oil and leave a refreshing effect. The one which is my absolute favorite is the Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask. Green tea is a really good ingredient for acne prone skin, so this mask will help in controlling acne. You may also use it as a spot treatment. Click Here To Buy.

  5. Moisturizer- We often believe the myth that oily skin doesn’t need a moisturizer and so we skip this step. But that’s not the right thing to do because in the absence of a moisture layer, our skin tends to produce more oil which may lead to acne. So, a water-based or a non oily moisturizer is a must have product. You may use Lakme Peach Milk Moisturizer SPF 24 PA Sunscreen Lotion. This has a very light texture and absorbs very well.

  6. Sunblock – One of the most most important product is a good sunblock. Not using a sunblock is the reason behind most of our issues like acne, pigmentation, dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines, etc. So, definitely include a sunblock in you vanity. You may use Lotus Herbals Safe Sun 3-In-1 Matte Look Daily Sunblock SPF-40. It gives a matte effect plus it has a light tint to it which evens out the skin tone. Click Here To Buy.
