Step 1: Cleanse
Cleansing is the first and most important step of any skincare routine. With age, the regeneration process of the skin slows down, allowing dead skin cells to accumulate on the skin’s surface. Cleansing helps remove dirt, oil, grime, pollutants and sebum from the skin while deep cleaning your pores. Look for a mild, soap-free cleanser that suits your skin type and does not strip off the natural oils from the skin. In the night-time skincare routine, it is best to opt for double cleansing to remove all makeup, sebum, dirt and pollutants residue thoroughly before you hit the bed. Massage the cleanser gently on your skin in a circular motion with warm water for at least 60 seconds. Rinse off and pat dry.
If you are looking for a hydrating cleanser, try the Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Gel Cleanser. It is a creamy and ultra-fine foam that deeply penetrates your pores and clears impurities and makeup effectively. It hydrates your skin without making your skin dry.
Step 2: Exfoliate
It's important to exfoliate your skin weekly to remove the dead skin cells and impurities stuck in the pores of your skin. However, it’s crucial to use an exfoliator gently and occasionally. Do not scrub your skin roughly or use harsh microbeads on the skin. Depending on your skin type and concern, you can exfoliate once or twice a week and look for ingredients like glycolic acid, salicylic acid or lactic acid, which help to boost cell turnover and promote a more radiant complexion.
Step 3: Apply Serum
Facial serums contain concentrated ingredients that penetrate deep into the skin to give faster and better results. Before picking a serum for your routine, identify your skin concerns and accordingly opt for ingredients that your skin needs. For example, if your skin is dull and dry, you can look for facial serums that contain hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate the skin. For dark spots, pigmentation and brightness, you can opt for vitamin C serum. Similarly, retinol helps reduce acne, accelerate cell turnover, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Try the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5 % Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum formulated with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid. It is made of a lightweight, non-sticky formula that intensely hydrates the skin, leaving it plump and radiant.
Step 4: Use Eye cream
One skincare product necessary for mom is an eye cream. The area around your eyes is more delicate than the rest of the face. Eye creams help nourish your under eyes and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Look for an eye cream that contains peptides, retinol, niacinamide, etc., to help to boost collagen production and reduce to reduce dark circles and puffiness.
Step 5: Moisturise
Moisturisation provides nourishment and hydration while locking your skin’s natural moisture. The skin loses moisture rapidly when you age, causing wrinkles and sagging. Moisturisation helps improve the appearance of your skin, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin plumper and smoother. Look for ingredients like peptides, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, etc., in the moisturiser. You can also use a lightweight, non-comedogenic, oil-free formula for oily and acne-prone skin. Similarly, it is best to opt for a richer, more hydrating formula for normal to dry skin.

Step 6: SPF
Sun damage can significantly affect your skin’s health, causing premature ageing and pigmentation. Therefore, applying sunscreen is a non-negotiable step in a skincare routine. Whether you are looking for skincare for mothers or for yourself, look for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 and above and apply it at least 30 min before stepping out in the sun.
