Apart from making healthy organic life choices, incorporating a night time skincare regime into our daily lives, will go a long way in keeping the skin looking healthy and glowing.

Star your regime by thorough cleansing and do not forget to use a toner, suggest experts

Shankar Prasad, Founder, Plum, and Megha Sabhlok, Brand Director, Just Herbs, have given some inputs:

* Cleanse: Going to bed with make-up on is the worst thing you can do to your skin. It leads to chemical accumulation, blocked pores and reduces the ability of skin to absorb nutrients. Make sure that you use a gentle cleanser first to remove make-up and grime. If required, follow up with a foaming face wash.

While the idea of cleansing the grime on your face with castor oil might seem unappealing to you, however, it not only can draw out the dirt from your pores and purge, it also has anti-inflammatory properties. People with all skin types can benefit from this method.

The best natural cleansing technique is to use one-third castor oil mixed with two-thirds of any oil of your choice; almond, sunflower seed, virgin olive or any other natural, organic oil. Massage the oil gently onto your face with firm strokes focusing on your problem areas

Use a soft washcloth soaked in warm water to cover your face. The warmth allows the oiled pores to soften and open up in order to gently release the toxins and impurities.

Gently wipe without scrubbing and repeat again. This should remove the oil along with the dead skin cells, bacteria and impurities from your face leaving you with deeply cleansed glowing skin.

* Tone: This helps reduce pore size, balance skin pH and remove any leftover dirt and make-up still left. Toning will further nourish and hydrate your skin leaving it supple and refreshed.

Rose water tops the list for its fragrant refreshing appeal and its universality in suiting all skin types.

Refrigerate a good organic brand and apply all over face and neck using a cotton ball. Green Tea with a few drops of tea tree oil makes for an antibacterial toner that especially suits oily skin types.

* Anti-ageing serums: Address your anti-ageing concerns with elixir serums as they nourish and restore the natural glow and youthfulness to tired, ageing and pigmented skin.

Plant polyphenols, carotenoids and flavonoids present in these serums slow-down skin ageing process. Once applied, let your skin fully absorb the serum for some time while you rest.

* Massage with night cream or gel: Begin by spreading it across the forehead, down the nose, across the cheeks, the chin, neck and towards the chest. Gently massage the cream in upward strokes and circular motions by using your fingertips. This helps in evenly distributing the moisture all over your facial skin, increases blood circulation and minimises puffiness.

* The facial oil: Facial oils repair and replenish the facial skin while you sleep. Apply 4-5 drops of facial oil on fingertips and gently massage it in circular motions from nose towards ears while applying horizontally, and always against the gravity while applying vertically.

It is usually applied after the gel/cream as it helps seal-in the moisture. (IANS)

Everyone wants a winter glow and if you want to get the perfect winter skin, then follow these easy beauty tips. Pixabay

Come winter, and our skin demands different care. Adopt these simple tips for naturally-glowing winter skin.

Mohit Narang, Skincare expert at Avon gives you tips on how to face the cold weather and retain that glow.

1. Follow your skincare routine diligently

One should follow a very basic and simple skincare routine to keep the skin happy during winters. Cleanse your skin twice a day i.e every morning and before going to bed. Follow the cleansing process with a light daily moisturiser to lock the moisture in and opt for a heavy moisturiser or overnight cream in the night. This should be done on softly damp skin because just-washed skin absorbs moisture better.

2. Do not overly exfoliate

Skin exfoliation is done to get rid of dead skin cells. You should be extra careful in winters because the skin is already compromised due to dry and cold weather. You should exfoliate your skin only once in a week to help in boosting skin regeneration and better product absorption. Men should also be careful while exfoliating depending on their skin types.

3. Moisture crucial after hot showers

People tend to have hot showers in winters but taking hot showers and not moisturising after can create cracks and an uneven skin surface. If the skin is not immediately moisturised, the cracks in the skin let the nerves get exposed to air, resulting in eczema or winter’s itch. Always apply moisturiser immediately after a hot shower.

4. Use a sunscreen

Never skimp on sunscreen during winters. It is a lifesaver when you step out into the winter sun. Not only does it protect your skin from damage because of pollutants and harsh ultraviolet rays, it also helps prevent premature ageing.
