Constant exposure to harmful environmental elements such as UV radiation, pollution, dirt and free radicals eventually results in skin damage and accelerates the process of aging. Thus, regeneration is crucial to the skins recovery from daytime damage. What we need is a regular night care regime to help our skin rejuvenate and restore its natural radiance. Cleansing, toning and moisturising (CTM) make for an enhanced skin care routine. Combined with natural ingredients, they can work wonders for ones skin.


Shivani Prabhakar, Head- Marketing, Product Innovation, SoulTree shares your nighttime CTM routine. These are beauty tips for skin:

1. Always begin by removing all traces of makeup and dirt from your face with a hydrating cleansing lotion. This allows the skin to breathe and unclogs facial pores that otherwise lead to breakouts. Look for a cleanser with soothing ingredients such as aloe vera, rose water, green tea, nutgrass, etc. After cleansing, use a mild organic face wash based on your skin type.

2. Use a toning mist to remove residual impurities. Go for a Rose or Jasmine toning mist to soothe and hydrate your skin.

3. Help your skin lock-in moisture with a gentle night cream. Find one with a smooth texture that easily blends into your skin. Night creams help regenerate cells and are more potent when it comes to infusing hydration as compared to a day cream. Look for one which is made with antioxidant-rich ingredients such as pomegranate, turmeric, papaya, almond oil, etc.

4. A night care regime for your under eye is equally essential. The skin around our eyes is more delicate as compared to other parts of the face and show the earliest signs of premature aging. Using an under eye gel with revitalizing ingredients such as pomegranate, almond oil, green tea, etc will reduce dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and improves your blood circulation.

5. Last but not the least, do not go to bed without moisturising your lips. Use a lip balm made with cold pressed oils and other nourishing ingredients such as kokum butter, lotus, viola, hibiscus, etc. Say no to harmful chemicals such as petrolatum, parabens and artificial colours.

6. A regular night care regime is more beneficial because environmental stressors do not get to us while we are asleep. Thus, it is worth the effort because our skin absorbs the nutrients better at night than it does during the day. (IANS)

Using social media in moderation isn't bad. It becomes a problem when this becomes a habit.

By Dr. Vihan Sanyal

Most teenagers use social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram these days. It keeps a person connected to friends across the globe and gives them a window into the lives of people they are connected with.

Multiple studies have shown that teenagers who use social media excessively do so because they are either bored, need an escape from their immediate physical environment, are feeling overwhelmed and stressed, are lonely, have few real-time friends or need to feel appreciated and validated.
