3-Day Diwali Skin Care Routine
The Pre-Diwali period can be a busy and hectic time where you might forget to give your skin the necessary love and care it needs. So, here’s a 3-day AM and PM, pre-Diwali skincare routine to prep your skin in short time:
Day 1 – Focus on cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating the skin
This Diwali 2023, get your skin ready to shine from both inside and outside. Begin the first day of your 3-day Diwali skin care routine with a homemade detox water. Detox water purifies the blood, which in turn allows your skin to feel and look healthy. You can make this drink by using hot water, honey, lemon, ginger, and more ingredients that suit you. However, we recommend consulting a nutritionist in case of any allergies before you try this detox drink.
Start the first day of your Diwali skincare with deep cleansing. Get rid of dead skin cells, dirt, dust, and impurities by using a gentle cleanser that suits your skin type and needs. Head to the L'Oréal Paris Skin Genius tool to understand your skin type and use skincare products tailored to your unique skin type.

Next, tackle those pesky blackheads and dead skin cells by exfoliating your skin effectively. This will also help to improve blood circulation and slough off dead skin cells from deep within the skin. However, avoid over-exfoliating your skin as that might lead to redness, irritation, and inflammation.
Skincare for Diwali is incomplete without a serum. Using a hydrating serum will not only nourish the skin but also allow it to feel soft, supple, and healthy. We recommend using a serum with glycolic acid to achieve maximum benefits and let your skin feel Diwali-ready.

• Night cream
Getting a minimum of 8-9 hours of sleep is important for maintaining healthy-looking skin and reducing the appearance of dark circles and eye bags. However, apart from sleeping well, it is also important for you to include a night cream in your Diwali skin care routine to tackle these skin woes with ease.

Day 2 – Focus on brightening and polishing
No matter what products you are planning to apply, make sure that your face is free from impurities. So, before using any skincare products to brighten your face, use a soothing face wash to cleanse your skin well.
• DIY Face Pack
Let your skin glow from within this Diwali 2023 with the help of a DIY face pack. You can prepare a super-easy face pack by using ingredients such as turmeric powder and fuller’s earth, gram flour, curd, or sandalwood. Apply this pack on your face to shine from within.
Indulge yourself in an at-home facial to relax and treat your skin, and get ready to celebrate Diwali. Take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and use ingredients such as tomato, honey, sugar and more to unveil glowing skin instantly. Also, do a patch test on your skin to check for any reactions.
• Sheet Mask
Conclude your second day of Diwali skincare with a nourishing sheet mask before going to bed. A serum sheet mask will allow the potent ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin and help achieve maximum skin glowing benefits on the go.

Day 3 – Repeat and re-repeat
• CTM (Cleanse, Tone, Moisturise)
The third day of your Diwali skin care routine is quite simple. Go for the regular CTM routine to moisturise and nourish your skin properly. Start by cleansing your skin, then follow it up with a toner and moisturiser. Including a toner in your Diwali skincare will remove all traces and impurities from the skin and keep your pores away from clogging, without making your skin feel dry.
Our recommendation: L’Oréal Paris Glycolic Bright Day Cream with SPF 17
• Sheet mask + Night cream
Finish off your getting ready-for Diwali ritual with a sheet mask to pamper your skin with the love, care, and freshness it needs. Follow it up with a night cream to look the best from the rest on the morning of Diwali 2023.
Pro Tip: Gently rub ice cubes on your face every day. This will help to reduce redness, puffy eyes, and dark circles and increase the longevity of your Diwali makeup look. Also, never skip sunscreen.
