Dry Hair Tips

by Anurag Kedia

Some of the things you embrace as you live and work in a city are frizzy and dry hair. As common a problem it is, people often try to sweep it under the rug and pretend they are better off without the solution. Before you know it, the dryness worsens and becomes unmanageable. But ignoring your hair’s dryness can lead to complications related to the overall health of your scalp, as a rough exterior is often a signal towards the inner imbalances of the body. What you need to do is follow the dry hair tips mentioned in this article. While pollution and exposure, coupled with internal oil balance are the leading causes of dry hair, here are some other reasons why you may be experiencing the frizz this season:

  1. Overheating your hair with appliances like straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers.
  2. Using hair products with the wrong composition.
  3. Washing your hair extensively.
  4. Overuse of hair colors or bleaching agents.
  5. Overexposure to sunlight and UV rays.

You can restore your hair to its original shine and texture with some doable tips and routines. Here are a few dry hair tips:

 

  • Stick to your regular hair trimming sessions

 

The easiest way to maintain your hair’s health is to trim the dry ends away. Your hair needs to be freed of its backend lugging, and hence, regular visits to your hairdresser are just what you need to bring your hair back to its health. 

A quick trim can remove the split ends and free your hair of the excess weight, thus making sure your hair sports a shiny and healthy shape.

 

  • Avoid sulfate-based products at all costs

This is one of the most important tips for dry hair. Check out the composition of the hair products you use and eliminate conditioners, masks, and shampoo with sulfate in them. As harmful as this particular chemical is for application, it also thins your hair and robs it of its texture and shine.

Get the Pilgrim Sulfate-Free Shampoo that contains three primary ingredients – Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia. It will help strengthen your hair, fight off dandruff, soothe the scalp, and repair the damaged strands.

 

  • Avoid rinsing your hair during hot showers

 

The more you douse your hair with hot water on a regular basis, the more they lose out on their shine and essential oils. Hot showers may give a relaxing experience, but they may be costing you your hair’s moisture. 

Switching hot showers with lukewarm baths are the wisest thing you can do, both for your dry hair and the environment. 

 

  • Limit heat exposure from blow-drying and hairstyling equipment

 

Ever tried to run a plastic cover through your hair straightener? Don’t think the result would be delightful! Well, your hair is just as delicate and susceptible to damage. Constantly running them through heat equipment can create a moisture deficit and burn the hair resulting in dry, frizzy hair. 

To pivot to your hair’s original moisture, you have to limit its exposure to artificial heat and avoid it altogether if possible. Simple! 

 

  • Use hydration hair care routine

 

Hydration must be a priority in your haircare routine. A great way to do it is to adapt to the Shampoo-condition routine. In it, begin with lathering your wet hair in shampoo and then let the clean hair absorb the moisture of the conditioner. 

Remember, you need to take your shampoo to the scalp for a proper cleanse, but you shouldn’t take your conditioner anywhere near it—you must apply it only to the strands and the tip of your hair. 

 

  • Use hair masks regularly

 

Hair masks are different than your regular conditioner. They are made with rich and rehabilitating ingredients with heavier concentrations such as lipids and natural oils. You can leave the hair masks on your hair, for a considerable amount of time to work its magic on your hair. The Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Mask can bring a healthy bounce and shine to your dull hair while protecting it from UV damage and environmental pollutants.

Those interested in solving their issues with dry hair can use hair masks twice a week.

 

  • Make hair serums a part of your hairstyling routine

 

A hydrating elixir or serum can work wonders on your dry scalp by adding additional amounts of nutriment to your routine. Once you have washed your hair, you can apply a bit of serum on your wet hair and comb it through for a glossy finish and manageable hair. We recommend the Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Serum that is the perfect blend of Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia. It helps provide your hair with extra conditioning and gloss.

 

  • Get a silk pillowcase

 

This may sound odd, but sleeping on a fabric that is soft and won’t cause friction in your hair is actually quite smart and purposeful. Cotton cases and sheets also absorb moisture out of your hair, leaving them dry and frizzy for the day to come. 

A bonus, you will feel like a total luxury waking up every day. 

 

  • Keep up with the oil messages

 

While you amp up the cleanser and the coating, it is also a good thing to go back to the roots and have oil messages that both replenish your scalp and soften your mid-length edges. Oil massages also stimulate your scalp’s blood circulation, all the while relaxing your nerves and body. 

An oily scalp attracts a lot of dirt and dust, and hence, it would be ideal to wash it off after a few hours.

Zit, acne, pimples, blisters, hair fall, and much more. We all have those annoying beauty troubles that never seem to go away. Plus, we are constantly exposed to damage caused by bad lifestyle habits, pollution, the sun, and dirt. But, before you hit drug stores looking for a fix, check your kitchen or medicine cabinet to get some easy and efficient home remedies. Here, we bring to you some how-tos to solve your common beauty problems.

  1.   Acne

As we reach puberty, acne becomes one of the most common beauty problems that affect everyone. The most common types are whiteheads and blackheads. They are usually seen on the face, but they can also appear on the arms and the back. The easiest way to get rid of acne is the popular home ingredient for skincare, Aloe Vera. It contains polysaccharides and gibberellins that get rid of the bacteria responsible for causing acne. It improves the appearance of the skin, soothes irritation, fights inflammation, and helps the skin to repair itself. All you need is 3 drops of tea tree oil and 2 tbsp of Aloe Vera gel. Mix both the ingredients until you get a homogeneous cream. Use this mixture to clean the affected areas. Spread it on your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes before washing it off. This is one of the best beauty fixes for getting rid of Acne.

  1.   Dry skin and cuticles

Dry skin becomes a major issue in the summer. Dry skin can cause itchiness, but scratching it can further make it worse. Dry skin can benefit from a mixture of olive oil and lemon juice. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil and 5 tbsp of sugar in the juice. Use your hands or a loofah to gently apply the mixture on your skin. The alpha-hydroxy fruit acid present in lemon helps loosens the glue that keeps the dead skin cells together. The sugar cleanses the pores and increases cell turnover. It acts as a gentle Exfoliator. Vitamin E present in olive oil nourishes the skin. To get rid of the dry cuticles, take a small dollop of your hand cream with a few drops of coconut oil. Rub this mixture generously over each of your cuticles. Use plastic gloves for 10 minutes for enhanced benefits.

However, if you don’t want to go through the whole ordeal or making your own home remedy, you can try the Pilgrim Shea & Cocoa Body Butter that will melt straight into your skin, lock in the moisture, and give you radiant skin.

  1.   Stained teeth

Having yellow teeth can indeed ruin your perfect smile. There are many teeth whitening products and options available in the market, but why go for the expensive options when you can get sparkling white teeth at home. Just add 1 tsp of water in 2 tsp of baking soda. Put this mixture on your toothbrush and brush thoroughly. Brush twice a week using this paste. It will remove the stain and polish your teeth. Don’t try this daily as it can be harsh on the tooth enamel.

  1.   Frizzy hair

Frizzy hair can indeed be a real bummer. Use a heat protection serum before you blow-dry your hair to fight the frizz. Hold the dryer in the downward direction so that there is no unwanted frizz. Use a hydrating shampoo in winter and take a deep-conditioning treatment once a week. Try a leave-in conditioner if your hair is extremely dry and frizzy.

  1.   Skin spots

Skin spots are caused by two reasons- hormonal changes and frequent sun exposure. These spots can occur on the face or any other part of the body. All you need is a simple, naturally exfoliating and lightening treatment that will not only remove impurities and dead skin cells, but also change the natural tone of the skin. Take a lemon, 1 tbsp of olive oil, and 3 tbsp of sugar. Mix all the three ingredients. Apply this mixture on all the affected areas and gently massage it before taking a bath. Leave the mixture on for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Just make sure that you don’t get your skin exposed to the sun during the whole application as it will do more harm to your skin. Use sunscreen daily to protect your skin. The Pilgrim White Lotus Day cream is built with SPF 50 that will protect your skin from sun damage. 

  1.   Chapped lips

The excess dryness in the summer can result in chapped lips. They are not only unattractive but are also painful. To fix this, you need brown sugar and a wet washcloth. Gently massage this mixture onto your lips using a circular motion. Moisturize your lips using coconut oil. Also, you can try mixing ½ tsp of honey and 1 tsp of olive oil. Apply this mixture for a lip treatment that will leave your lips softer and smoother than ever. 

  1.   Ingrown hair

Ingrown hair can be irritating and embarrassing. To get rid of these, take ½ tsp of lukewarm water and add 4 aspirin tablets. Add 1 tsp of honey and make a paste. Apply this paste for 10 minutes on the affected area and rinse it off with warm water. The salicylic acid present in aspirin acts as a gentle Exfoliator. Its anti-inflammatory properties reduce the swelling. However, this treatment is not meant for people with sensitive skin.

  1.   Puffy eyes

Puffy eyes can be caused by the excessive consumption of alcohol, crying for too long, lack of sleep, stress, hormone changes, and allergies. A cool shower can cause the blood vessels to constrict, reducing swelling and redness. A frozen pack of veggies or just a small plastic bag of ice on your eyes for 15 minutes will speed up the process. Keep your head elevated by sleeping on two pillows to reduce under-eye puffiness.

Thoughtfully crafted with natures’ best, to bring you the most loving yet thorough care. White Lotus, Argan oil, and Camellia work together to soothe the scalp, strengthen the hair, repair the damaged strands and fights dandruff.

Women with curly hair look really pretty but they also need curly hair tips. Curly hair also gets its fair share of attention! Curly hair gets under-moisturized due to the shape of the strands whereas curly hair scalp can get really greasy. Confusing!! Right? A woman with naturally wavy hair needs to take greater care of the hair because even slight changes in humidity or the weather can lead to hair problems like frizzy hair or split ends. 

How to take care of curly hair?

The quality of your hair depends on how you take care of it, so here are some tips for you and your beautiful curly hair!

  1. Try to wash your hair with a sulphate free shampoo

Usually, curly hair is drier than straight hair and many women have found that using a sulfate-free shampoo is quite helpful.

You can try the Pilgrim Sulfate-Free Shampoo that contains the three primary ingredients – Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia. It will help strengthen your hair, soothe your scalp, and repair damaged strands.

  1. Begin at the bottom

When you wash your hair and apply a hair mask, start by applying at the bottom of your hair first. Slowly work your way towards the top. The same rule applies when you brush or comb your hair. Start at the bottom to easily detangle your hair.

  1. Don’t use a towel to dry curly hair

If you want to avoid your hair from getting frizzy, then never rub your hair with a towel, that too vigorously. Rather, you should pat dry it with a towel gently. You can also use an old T-shirt instead of a towel to avoid the risk of frizziness.

  1. Use less styling products

When you have curly hair, it is advisable that you go easy on using styling products. If you have to use them, then be careful and make sure that you apply them evenly and use the least possible quantity or else you might end up with a blob of the product on just a part of your hair and nothing on the other parts!

  1. Use a wide-toothed comb

Brushing curly hair causes the curls to separate and make the hair frizzy. So instead, use a wide-toothed comb and start working up from the bottom to gently detangle your hair. 

  1. Cold water hair wash makes your hair shinier – a myth

Many of you might have heard that those with curly hair should wash their hair with cold water to reduce frizziness and add shine to their hair. Well, washing your hair in cold water will only make your head cold! This is just a myth. Luke warm water works well. Also, avoid washing your hair on rainy days.

  1. Layer your hair

When you go for a haircut, ask your hairstylist to layer them. This is because without layers, your curly hair will look just flat or it will flare out. 

  1. Use sea salt spray – a myth

Another common myth about curly hair is that by using sea salt spray, your hair would be more textured and your curls would get a better definition. Well, this is a complete lie. Salt isn’t good for any hair type, let alone curly hair because it makes hair dry and if you’ve been swimming in the ocean, you would know for certain.

  1. Keep your hair moisturized

For taking care of your curls, the key is moisturizing your hair regularly. As they’re curly, your hair needs more moisture. Here’s when the hair mask comes to play! When washing your hair, use a good quality hair mask and apply to every single strand. Leave it on for five to ten minutes before rinsing it out. Doing this regularly will help you avoid getting frizzy hair and your hair won’t be easily affected by changes in humidity as well. 

  1. Dry your hair naturally

No one has so much time to spare, but for your hair, this is one good thing to do if you can make a habit. Usually, we dry our hair after washing them, using a blow dryer, but the heat damages your hair and brings back all the frizziness and dryness. So to avoid these problems, it is best to let your hair dry naturally in the air. If you do not have so much time to spare, set your blow dryer to the lowest heat setting to avoid damage.

  1. Use a hair mask, once in a week

For keeping your curly hair in perfect condition, use a hair mask once every week. Masks that contain Argan Oil are best for curly hair, as they help prevent hair damage and keep them moisturized. Use Pilgrim Argan Oil hair mask for the best results. It can help to make your hair shiny and bouncier. With Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia, you will be able to protect your hair from UV damage and environmental pollutants.

  1. Stick to one brand

Curly hair calls for more hair products than straight hair, so if you choose one brand, then it is advisable that you stick to the same brand for all products as these would work best together.

  1. Use frizz control serum

You need to be best friends with frizz control serum or cream if you have curly hair. We recommend the Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Serum that also contains White Lotus and Camellia. You can use it to fix your frizzy and dull hair. Using this will give your hair extra gloss and conditioning. Just take a little bit of the product, to avoid humidity and frizz.

  1. Trim your hair regularly 

To keep your hair looking healthy and volumized, trim your hair regularly. Cut them every six to eight weeks, and get them trimmed when dry, as curly hair can shrink up to 30% when it dries out.

  1. Maintain a healthy diet 

The quality of your hair is also affected by what you eat every day. Therefore a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and a lot of lean proteins will keep your hair in a good condition. Along with a healthy diet, also drink plenty of water to keep your body and hair hydrated.

Thus, follow these few tips for curly hair and your hair will thank you in the future!

Being a mom is great, but let’s face it – it keeps you busy, 24×7, all day, every day. It’s like giving up a huge part of your life since everything is mostly about your little one, what the child wears, eats, and sleeps. With all that mayhem, moms hardly find time to groom themselves, let alone go to a salon. 

What are the best beauty tips for moms?

Don’t worry mommies, here are some beauty tips and tricks for you to follow and get back in the game.

  1. A long bath

Being a mom is the most tiring job, so you deserve some quality me time and what better than a bath? Run some hot water in your bathtub and take out those bath bombs that you had kept in, thinking you’ll use it someday. It will relax your mind and your body, and healthy skin and happiness are interrelated. 

  1. Wash your face regularly

To get rid of puffiness under your eyes (sleepless nights!), splash water onto your face a few times a day. This will relax your eyes and it will also make your face look fresh. Also, use a face wash or cleanser and wash your face twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed.

Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash is a great product you should try. It is an effective, powerful, and gentle cleanser that will help in cleansing your skin and removing dust and grime from your skin.

  1. Moisturize

For healthy skin, moisturizing it is very important and you should make it a part of your daily skincare routine. Also, since you have got to make it quick, you might not find time to apply foundation or other base makeup. So you can use tinted moisturizers, that will give your face a finished look, along with providing moisture to it. 

  1. Get a concealer

Sleepless nights and dark circles go hand in hand. Get a good concealer and cover those bags, to give your face a rested, fresh look. No one else needs to know you were up all night, comforting your crying baby. Go fake that well-rested look!

  1. Invest in mascara

Nothing works as good as mascara. It instantly brings out your eyes and changes the look on your face. Buy one that volumizes or lengthens your eyelashes. And, a bonus tip – get an eyelash curler and curl your lashes. This will make your eyes look healthier and brighter. 

  1. Buy tweezers

You obviously wouldn’t get enough time to go get your eyebrows done, so it’s a great idea to invest in a good pair of tweezers. When you’re in a hurry, you can pluck the extra hair and go rock!

  1. Keep a tilted lip balm or lip gloss in your bag

Lipstick looks great, but when you’re in a rush, you won’t get time to put on lipstick efficiently. So get a tinted lip balm or a lip gloss. A quick swipe and you’re ready to ace the world. 

  1. Get a haircut

When you’re a mom, you at least want your hair to support you. So, it’s time to go chop-chop and get a groovy haircut that makes you look young and vibrant. Go for a hairstyle that is convenient for you and easy to manage. Oh, thank God for ponytails, right?

  1. Paint your nails

You can’t keep very long nails when you have kids around but you can definitely groom them. Spare a few minutes and pick out nice nail polish. You can also go for a neutral shade, to give your nails a healthy, subtle look.

If you’re a new mom, you could follow these beauty tips for moms –

– When you’re moving about doing baby chores, put on a leave-on face mask. Keep it on for twenty to thirty minutes and then wash your face. This will get rid of the tiredness from your face, and make your skin feel fresh.

– When you have no time to shampoo, take some baby powder on your palm and rub it in your hair. It will absorb the oil and make your hair look less greasy. Yay, quick fix!

– You could keep a small makeup kit that has all the basic stuff, in your car or your bag for a quick touch up anywhere.

Once your kid has grown up a little, these are the tips you should follow – 

– Make it a routine to cleanse and tone your skin, before you take a bath in the morning. Use a cleanser that suits your skin type and toner that is alcohol-free. 

– Facial masks are a go-to, no matter how old you are. Look for face masks with natural ingredients, such as Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Mask. This is a clay-based mask that boosts microcirculation and can help bring nutrients from within up to the skin. The unique formation of the mask will make your skin supple and smooth.

– If you’re too tired or lazy to wash your face before bedtime, then you could choose makeup wipes and keep them in your bedside drawer. But do not skip this step, mommies!

Ensure that you follow these tips, and you’d be the young mum everyone keeps talking about at school, in no time!

There are habits that help with your facial skin improvement and then there are habits that are ruining it. Some of the causes of your skin problems are obvious but some are not that clear. 

How to improve facial skin?

What if you have been doing all things right, but nothing seems to work? Is it due to the habits you indulge in unknowingly? Let’s take a look at your bad habits so that you can get rid of them and get flawless looks!

  1. Using cosmetics without understanding your skin

Some products may look good on your friends, that doesn’t mean those will suit your skin type. The product doesn’t have to be bad, it’s just that it doesn’t suit you. So instead of relying on advertisements or what your friends are using, understand your own skin first, and then buy facial products accordingly.

  1. Popping pimples

As hard it is to resist popping pimples, it is one of the worst sins to do. Not only do these leave ugly spots behind, but also expose your skin to a trail of other skin issues. If you’re prone to acne, you should use products that fight the oil in your skin. You can also use natural products to slow down the growth of pimples and get rid of marks. But, all in all, do not touch or pop your pimples at any cost.

  1. Not washing your face

Another bad habit would be to skip washing your face twice a day. All the dust and pollution can collect on your skin and can lead to various skin issues such as acne, spots, etc. Thus, you need to wash your face at least twice a day, with a sulfate-free face wash. Also, wash your face before you apply makeup to get rid of all the dirt particles and to open your clogged pores. 

  1. Using soap to wash your face

Our skin is sensitive to alkaline and acidic chemicals, so you should never wash your face with your regular soap. Instead, opt for a face wash or a cleanser that suits your skin type.

Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash will help your skin much more than any soap can. This is a gentle, yet effective cleanser that will remove dead skin cells from the skin and cleanse your skin.

  1. Not moisturizing enough

Often we think that moisturizing the skin is important in winters only. Your skin needs moisture during summers too. If you feel that moisturizer feels too heavy on your skin during summers as it is already too hot and sweaty, then choose one with a lighter consistency or you could also choose a face mist. Whenever you feel like freshening up, just spray it once and you’re good to go!

  1. Not moisturizing your neck

It’s great if you moisturize your face regularly, but if you’re forgetting your neck, uh-oh! Our neck is one of the areas that show the earliest signs of aging and if not moisturized and taken care of properly, you will end up looking older than you actually are. So the next time you apply sunscreen and moisturizer to your face, do not forget about your neck. Also, the area around your eyes is also very sensitive, so use a good eye cream before bedtime for your skin to heal.

  1. Being on your phone all the time

Let’s face it, where we go, our cell phone goes, even to the washroom! You should also know that our cell phones are the biggest germ carriers and can even trap oil in the pores. Too much talking on the phone can lead to a breakout so either you should use your earphones, or you should regularly wipe your phone with a saline solution. 

  1. Skipping sunscreen when there’s no sun

The benefits of sunscreen are definitely obvious and whoever said that you could skip applying sunscreen when there’s no sun, doesn’t know about skincare. It is important that no matter what season it is, start applying Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50, 365 days, straight up. It will help in protecting the skin from the sun and providing sheer coverage for slight discolorations like hyperpigmentation and redness. Now, do not forget about your neck here as well. Along with your face, apply it to your neck, hands, and all other body parts that are usually exposed to the sunlight.

  1. Not getting enough Vitamin D

We all know the dangers of the sun, but it is also important for our skin to get its daily dose of vitamin D. Step out early in the morning or late in the afternoon and soak in the sun for at least ten minutes. It helps enhance radiance and boost collagen production. This also helps strengthen bones. But before you do so, make sure that you apply sunscreen and do not step out when the sun is harsh as that would alleviate your skin issues. 

  1. Lazy to get a haircut

If you are not getting a regular haircut, then you might get a couple (or a lot) of split ends. So, get your hair trimmed at least once in a month to avoid the dull and irregular look. Also, get a haircut in 3-4 months for the healthy growth of your hair. 

Thus, get rid of all these bad habits and nothing will come in your way of looking gorgeous, every day!

You have a whole skincare routine planned out when it comes to your face – serums, lotions, sunscreens, but what about aging hands care? We seem to not care as much about our hands and feet as we do for the face. Not having a good, caring plan for your hands can make you look older than you are! 

How to take care of aging hands?

Your hands will give away your age, even if your face won’t because hands are not only prone to the first signs of aging but usually age faster than your face. So what are the signs of hands aging and what should be done to fight these signs?

  1. Crepey Skin

Too much exposure to UV rays can lead to collagen damage, which causes the skin to become thinner and creates a crumpled appearance. This is where sunscreen comes to the rescue. You can also use over-the-counter retinol that is used to treat facial wrinkles. These may improve the texture of your hands, along with being beneficial to your face. Before going to bed, take a pea-sized drop of the product to stimulate the production of collagen that will help thicken the skin of your hands.

  1. Sun Spots

Due to years of exposure to the sun, dark spots are formed at the back of your hands. With age, these dark spots become more prominent and keep multiplying. Prevention is the key in this situation. Before you leave the house, take a dime-sized dab of sunscreen with a broad-spectrum SPF and keep reapplying throughout the day. For existing spots, you should use products that contain melanin-inhibiting ingredients like niacinamide, kojic acid, and licorice root.

Get the Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream. It offers sun protection, hydrates the skin, and improves skin’s elasticity. Built with SPF 50, this cream will help prevent sun spots, hyperpigmentation and redness.

  1. Dry Patches

We all know that keeping your hands hydrated is very important, but as we grow up, the barrier of skin becomes weaker and more vulnerable to irritants like water and soap. This ultimately leads to inflammation, increased dryness and it may also cause cracks in the outer layer of the skin. To keep your hands moisturized throughout the day, use a hand cream rich in shea and cocoa butter. These butters will create a barrier to keep out the irritants and sustain the water. Pilgrim Shea & Cocoa Body Butter is perfect to use for your hands. This moisturizer is rich in vitamins and contains white lotus extracts that will melt directly on your skin and lock the moisturizer in. This moisturizer will help preserve your beauty and youth. You should also minimize contact with water as over-washing your hands can dry out your skin. Each time you wash your hands, reapply the body butter to retain the moisture.

  1. Stained Nails

Yellow nails, ugh! These look ugly and make you look like you have celebrated more birthdays than you actually have. Mostly due to polish wear and tear, sometimes discoloration might be a sign of a serious fungal infection, so you should check in with your doctor once. Rub your nail beds using a lemon wedge, to remove the stains caused by nail polish. To smooth the surface and restore the natural shine of your nails, use a nail buffer. 

  1. Unkempt Cuticles

As much shabby as unkempt cuticles look, these can also lead to infection and nail damage. To keep your cuticles like new, follow these steps once a week: Take a cuticle remover and dissolve dead cells. Then, with the help of a nail grooming tool, push back the skin gently. Apply an occlusive ointment on it, to finish. Remember to never cut the cuticle as it opens a door for bacteria.

  1. Prominent Veins

Veins that were previously tucked away get exposed when we grow old, due to the loss of fat volume. Creams and serums that contain hyaluronic acid may plump up your skin temporarily to make these veins less noticeable. 

Thus, along with your face, you should also pay attention to other parts of your body, including your feet and hands. Follow the above-mentioned tips to keep them from getting all wrinkly and surely, no one’s guessing your age by looking at your hands anytime soon! 

Shea & Cocoa Body Butter with White Lotus

Our ultra-hydrating Shea and Cocoa Body Butter is enriched with vitamins and antioxidant-rich white lotus extracts. It melts straight in to the skin, locking in the natural moisture while nourishing its radiance.

Skin Moisturizing is one of the most important steps in a skincare routine. No matter what skin type you have, a moisturizer is an essential product to have. However, it can be quite difficult to find a product that works for you and suits your skin type. Proper hydration through moisturization is the key to glowing and healthy-looking skin. 

What are the different types of moisturizers available?

One moisturizer will not suit all of us. Therefore, it is important to know about the different types of moisturizers. The moisturizer you use should depend upon your skin type and should also cater to any skin problems you might be suffering from. The right moisturizer can do wonders for your skin and any other problems. There are different types of moisturizers available in the market and to make an informed decision, you should know more about the various types:

  • Lotions and Lightweight Moisturizers:

    Lightweight moisturizers are great for daily use as they get absorbed in the skin quickly. Lotions are generally easy to spread and apply. They are different from other types of moisturizers as they are water-based and have a runny consistency. It works best as a day time moisturizing agent as they don’t make your skin feel oily and sticky. Lotions help in providing the optimum moisturization during the day. 
  • Moisturizing Creams:

    Moisturizing creams are a great product to use during the harsh winter months. They also work best for people with dry skin as the oil to water ratio is maintained. Due to this, the texture of the creams is much thicker. They take time to get absorbed into the skin and provide more moisturization. Moisturizing creams are perfect for people with normal to dry skin and work best during the day as well as night hours. We recommend that you use the Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream SPF 50 with Camellia and Yugdudu for the best results. This day cream is enriched with White Lotus which improves skin elasticity, provides a brighter complexion, and enhances the natural glow of the skin. The camellia extracts help in retaining the natural moisture of the skin fights environmental damage and promotes the production of collagen. The cream contains Yugdudu, which helps in reducing any dark spots on the skin and fights signs of aging. The crema also helps in controlling the production of sebum and helps prevent acne breakouts.

The Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream is enriched with SPF 50 and protects your skin from sun dames, dark spots and pigmentation. It has a matte finish and does not make the skin look oily or shiny. 

  • Oil-Free Moisturizers:

    These types of moisturizers work exactly like the way normal moisturizers work. A barrier is created over the skin to lock in the moisture and keep it hydrated. Oil-free moisturizers work best for people with combination and oily skin. These moisturizers contain humectants that pull the moisture from the air and help keep the skin hydrated. 
  • Gel Moisturizers:

    Gel Moisturizers are well suited for oily and acne-prone skin as they don’t contain oil. These are extremely lightweight and work great in summer months. These provide sufficient hydration to the skin and also help in soothing inflamed skin. 
  • Serums:

    Even though Serums are not moisturizers, they fulfill the same function. Using serums daily can help your skin stay hydrated and healthy. 

How to use moisturizers?

Even though there is no specific way to use moisturizers, there are certain tips that you can follow to get the best results.

  • Use a moisturizer right after washing your face:

    Clean your face using a mild face wash to remove any dirt and unwanted substances from your face. After patting your skin dry, take a liberal amount of your moisturizer, and apply all over your face. Using a moisturizer right after washing your face will prevent your skin from getting dry. 
  • Use a lightweight moisturizer in the morning and a heavy moisturizer at night:

    By using a lightweight moisturizer in the morning, you provide your skin with sufficient hydration. However, during the night, your skin needs proper moisturization to keep from drying out. Using thick, oil-based creams and serums at night, right before going to bed, would be best for your skin. This serum will help your skin look young and healthy. It is lightweight and will get easily absorbed into your skin. With ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and White Lotus, the serum helps in reducing signs of aging and provides firmness and elasticity to the skin.
  • Moisturize your face if you are breaking out:

    Most people skip using a moisturizer when they see their skin breaking out. This causes even more damage to your skin. If you stop moisturizing your skin and take away the hydration, your skin will dry out and could lead to even more breakouts.
  • Moisturize before applying makeup:

    Your makeup products could contain ingredients that could dehydrate your skin. A moisturizer not only creates a barrier between the makeup products and your skin but also keeps it sufficiently hydrated.

Depending on your skin type, how do skin moisturizers work?

  • Dry Skin:

    It is advisable to use an oil-based moisturizer which gives you proper hydration. You should look for ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, and Glycerin in your moisturizer. These ingredients will help soothe dry skin and retain moisture content. 
  • Oily Skin:

    It is important to choose the right moisturizer for people with oily skin. Use a lightweight but good moisturizer to keep your face hydrated. This will help in controlling the excess production of oil by your glands. Oil-free moisturizers would work best for you. You can also use gel moisturizers if you have extremely oily skin. 
  • Combination Skin:

    If you have combination skin, you can use two different types of moisturizers to suit the different skin regions of your face. Use an oil-free moisturizer for the oily part and an oil-based moisturizer for the dry part. 
  • Sensitive Skin:

    People with sensitive skin tend to prefer natural products which do not have any artificial ingredients and fragrances. You should look for all-natural products to suit your sensitive skin.

“Eyes reveal the secrets of your heart!” But, what if you have dark circles under your eyes? They will indeed say a lot about your health and lifestyle. Do you have dark circles? Do they make you look sick or depressed? Dark circles have certainly become a menace in today’s lifestyle and can haunt both men and women. Dark circles are the dark discoloration of the skin under the eyes. When blood vessels present underneath the skin’s surface around the eyes get damaged, then blood particles leak out from the capillaries making the vessels visible through the skin. This can result in the appearance of discoloration or blemishes around the eyes. By following a few dark circle tips, you can get rid of these dark circles easily.

Causes of dark circles-

There are many causes for dark circles, including the inherent genetic tendency or due to some lifestyle factors such as smoking, stress, working long hours in front of a computer, lack of proper sleep, and deficiency of iron and vitamin. They can also occur due to hormonal changes or pregnancy. 

There are some lifestyle alterations that are important to reduce dark circles. Let’s take a look at some do’s, don’ts, and dark circles tips to get rid of these annoying dark circles- 

Do’s

  • Workout regularly and exercise

  • Sleep 7-8 hours a day. Proper sleep will help you keep fresh and reduce the appearance of dark circles. 
  • Consult a physician if you are suffering from sinusitis or allergic rhinitis

Remove your makeup before you sleep as it can irritate your skin. Use a good-quality face wash and face scrub for this. You have to use the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub that has a pillowy structure and extra-fine particles that will be foaming your skin gently and removing the dead skin cells. Using this scrub will help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, suntan, pigmentation, and discolorations.

  • Forget to wear sunscreen before you step out. What you need is a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. The Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream has SPF 50 that will provide protection from the sun, improve skin elasticity, and control the sebum production. The cream will get absorbed into the skin’s layers and replenish the nutrients.
  • Keep rubbing your eyes as it can irritate the skin and can damage small blood vessels below the eyelids, resulting in increased pigmentation
  • Apply eyeliner or mascara on the lower eyelid, due to the fact that they can spread on the skin and will give a darker appearance with every passing day

Some tips for dark circles to treat your dark circles-

Cold water-

Take a soft cloth and soak it in cold water for a few minutes. Place that cloth on your eyelids for about 5 to 7 minutes. Cold water works really well to tighten the blood vessel under the eyes. You can also use ice cubes wrapped in a towel for this purpose. Do this process 3 to 4 times every day for a few weeks. 

Rose water-

Place two cotton balls in rose water and soak them for a few minutes. Place those cotton balls on your eyelids for about 10 minutes. Repeat this process twice every day for a few weeks to completely remove the dark circles under your eyes. 

Lemon juice-

Dip a cotton ball in fresh lemon and place it on your eyes for about 15 minutes. Wash it off with water after that. Lemon juice has bleaching properties and vitamin C in it helps remove the dark circles around the eyes. Repeat this process for three times a week for effective results. 

Cucumber-

Cut the cucumber into two pieces and place them in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Place them on your eyelids for about 10 minutes and wash your face with water afterward. Cucumber acts as the best astringent and has skin lightening agents. 

Aloe vera-

Use a small amount of aloe vera gel under the eyes to soothe and protect the skin under the eyes, which will eventually help in reducing dark circles. 

Yoga and meditation

keep your body stress-free by performing yoga and meditation on a regular basis. Doing this will not just relax your body, but will improve your overall health and bring a fresh look on your face by removing dark circles under the eyes.

You may take good care of your face, but what about feet and hand care? Is the skin of your hand and feet darker than your face? Your hands and feet are the most visible parts of your body after face. Just like the face, they also encounter direct sun exposure. With so much emphasis on the face, we always forget about our hands and feet that also stand the scorching heat. When they bump into direct exposure to UV sun rays, there is an increase in the production of melanin which leads to a darker complexion.

How to maintain healthy hands and feet skin?

In addition to sun exposure, there are many other factors that can darken your hands and feet such as lack of exfoliation and skin cleansing, dust and pollution on skin, and accumulation of dirt. 

Foot care

It is commonly believed that you can get an idea of a person’s hygiene by simply looking at his feet. You don’t need an expensive salon treatment for that, you can get fabulous feet and toenails just by making some changes in your daily routine. Here are some dos and don’ts for feet care

Do’s 

  • Buy non-acetone nail polish remover.
  • Use a cuticle pusher to gently push back cuticles. 
  • To keep your soles soft and to sustain the proper moistness balance of the skin on your feet, apply emollient-enriched moisturizer. Shea-cocoa body butter is a good choice
  • Gently run a rubber or wooden manicure stick under your nails to keep them clean. 
  • File smoothly in one direction without using too much pressure.
  • Use an emery board to smooth nail edges.

Use an exfoliating scrub like the Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Body Scrub, foot file or pumice stone to remove dead skin build-up, which is also known as calluses. The scrum will help to remove the dead skin cells and get a soft and supple skin.

  • Ask your salon to clean and filter the footbath.
  • Consult a podiatrist and ask for your customized pedicure, if you have diabetes or poor circulation in your feet.

Don’ts

  • Do not apply nail polish if you are suffering from fungal infection, some symptoms of fungal infection include discolored and thick toenails. 
  • Don’t cut cuticles as this can increase the risk of infection. Cuticles help serve as a protective barrier against bacteria.
  • Never use the same tools for your pedicure and manicure as the fungus and germs can transfer between toes and fingers.
  • Be careful when using a foot razor to get rid of dead skin, removing too much skin can lead to infection.
  • Share nail files with a friend as they are extremely porous and can trap germs that spread.
  • Round the edges of your toenails as this shape can lead to the development of aching ingrown toenails. 
  • Use fingernail clippers or manicure scissors to trim nails as they enhance the problem of impacted toenails because of their trifling, bent shape. 

Hand care

Hands manifest the cleanliness of a person and play an important role in overall beauty. Poor hygiene, harsh cold weather and use of bad quality cosmetics can damage the skin of your hands. Here are some do’s and don’ts to take care of your hands. 

Do’s

  • Apply hand cream containing anti-inflammatory ingredients and emollient plant oils to pamper your cuticles, nails, and hands.
  • Keep your hands moisturized all day to avoid calluses and wrinkles. Pilgrim Shea & Cocoa Body Butter is a good choice. It is enriched with antioxidant-rich white lotus extracts and vitamins. It forms a protective layer on the skin for preventing environmental damage. Apply the body butter right after taking a shower to make sure that your skin is soft, hydrated, and supple.
  • Use a hand scrub at least once a week to remove the dead skin from your hands.
  • Use sunscreen to avoid sun exposure.
  • Wear gloves while doing dishes as the use of these products can dry your skin. 
  • Buy a hand cream with an SPF of 25 to help prevent lines, spots and skin cancer. Reapply the cream every time you wash your hands. 
  • Get a moisturizer having retinol and apply it every night to reduce fine lines and dark spots for line-smoothing. 
  • If you have dry hands, then look for a cream with alpha hydroxy acids, hydrating urea, and lactic acid to keep your skin moist and smooth.
  • Regular exercise to avoid swelling of the joints of the hands. 

Don’ts

  • Forget to give a quick massage while applying hand lotion on your hands.
  • Forget to consume food containing Vitamin B and calcium for healthy nails.
  • Use normal dish soap as it can dry your skin. 
  • Wash your hands too much.
  • Wash your hands with too cold or too hot water. Instead, wash your hands in lukewarm water all year round. 
  • File your nails in a seesaw action as it can separate the layers of the nail and can lead to nail peeling. 
  • Forget to apply a base coat when you paint your nails so that your nails are not stained. 
  • Ignore cuticles and use a good quality cuticle cream or oil to prevent the cuticles from drying or roughing out.

We all want to look great and the first step toward getting beautiful skin is to find out your skin type. It also helps you make the right choices about your skincare. When it comes to finding your own skin type, the first thing to know is that your skin type can vary with everything from the climate to your stress level. There are many internal and external elements that can sway the way your skin looks and feels. If you are using products for the wrong skin type, then it can further aggravate the condition of your skin, leading to acne and can also make you look older. Different skin types require different product formulations to meet their unique needs. There are four common skin types- normal, oily, dry, and sensitive skin.

Normal skin

Normal skin is not too dry and not too oily. It has a radiant complexion and there are barely any visible pores. There are no extreme sensitivities and fewer imperfections. You don’t see any changes in your skin throughout the day and you rarely have any breakout. It is soft with a smooth and even skin tone. You have minimal to no wrinkles or lines. Normal skin becomes dry in the winter and too much exposure to sunlight can damage the skin. 

Best ingredients to use for normal skin-

  1. Coconut Oil:

    It is one of the most popular and versatile natural skincare ingredients. It has various benefits for your skin, including protection from sunburns, purging skin cells, and fortifying skin tissue.

  2. Tea tree oil:

    This ingredient has been used for years for treating inflammation, redness, and breakouts.

  3. Rosewater:

    It can soothe and cool irritated skin, which is why it is used for treating acne and irritated skin.

What to avoid?

Avoid products with Petrolatum and Mineral oil as they can have a pore-clogging effect on the skin. Also, avoid products with Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate as they are extremely dehydrating to the skin.

Skincare routine for normal skin-

Wash your face with a facial cleanser every morning without fail. Get this Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Wash with Yugdugu & White Lotus. It not only helps remove dead skin cells to reveal fresh and healthy-looking skin but also remineralizes the skin to prevent breakouts.

  • Moisturize your skin to keep it fresh all day long, which will prevent dryness and wrinkles.
  • Don’t forget to apply sunscreen before leaving home.
  • Make sure to remove makeup before you sleep.
  • Exfoliate twice a week to remove dead skin cells.
  • Apply moisturizing night cream before going to bed.

Dry skin

Dry skin can make you feel dry, tight, or rough just after a couple of hours of moisturizer application. It has more visible lines and your skin is less elastic. You may get red patches and your complexion might look dull and rough. It can become rough and scaly if it’s too dry, particularly on the legs, arms, and hands. If you have acne, then acne products can be additionally drying. So, it is recommended to natural oil-based products and avoid any alcohol-based ingredients which can be drying. 

The daily routine for dry skin-

  • Take a shower every day, not more than once.
  • Use a mild, gentle cleanser. Do not use deodorant soaps.
  • Follow the routine of cleansing-toning-moisturizing.
  • Exfoliation is important to gently buff off dead skin cells even for dry skin. 
  • Don’t scrub while taking a bath.
  • Mineral foundations are best for dry skin. 
  • Use antioxidants to improve skin tone and stop free-radical damage caused by sun and pollution. 
  • Apply rich moisturizer after taking a bath. Apply Pilgrim Shea & Cocoa Body Butter with White Lotus immediately after a shower to ensure your skin remains soft, supple, and hydrated.
  • Don’t let the inside temperature get too hot. Use a humidifier.
  • Carry a water bottle everywhere you go to keep your skin well hydrated and supple. 

Best ingredients to use for dry skin-

  1. Fragrance-free ingredients are always the best choice for dry skin. Non-fragrant plant oils like argan oil, borage seed oil, evening primrose oil, cranberry seed oil, and sunflower oil are great to revitalize dry skin.
  2. Plant butter like shea butter, jojoba butter, and cocoa butter are excellent for replenishing and nourishing dry skin.
  3. Skin-replenishing ingredients like glycerine, omega fatty acids, cholesterol, and ceramides can help soften and strengthen dry skin.

What to avoid?

Avoid Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium as they can be extremely drying to the skin. You should also avoid any product having petrolatum or mineral oil as they can have a pore-clogging effect on the skin. 

Oily skin

You have oily skin if you are more prone to blemishes, pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. This skin has overactive sebaceous glands producing more oil than required. Your complexion may look thick, dull, or shiny sometimes. Oiliness can increase due to too much humidity, stress, and puberty. It can also be caused due to stress, unsuitable cosmetics, pregnancy, hormone levels, diet, and hereditary factors. 

Best ingredients to use for oily skin- 

  1. Lemon:

    It contains vitamin C, which helps in brightening skin and combating hyperpigmentation.

  2. Tea tree:

    Not only is it great for acne-prone skin, but it is also antibacterial.

  3. Kaolin clay:

    It absorbs excessive oil and draws sebum, debris, and dead skin from your face. Not only that, but it also tightens and cleanses pores too.

  4. Olive Oil:

    It helps by pulling impurities from the skin and maintaining pH balance.

What to avoid?

Avoid Isopropyl Myristate and Isopropyl Palmitate as they may encourage clogged pores. Don’t buy any product with Petrolatum and Mineral oil as they can have a pore-clogging effect on the skin. 

Skin care routine for oily skin-

  • Wash your oily skin twice a day. You can buy a cleanser marked specifically for oily skin.
  • Use skin toners to check any signs of oil or makeup. You can put it in a misting bottle and spray or can also use a cotton pad to apply.
  • Moisturizing serum or lotion is a must to keep the oily skin hydrated. Choose the moisturizer that has an SPF of at least 20.
  • You can also give a spot treatment to occasional blemish with a gel that contains salicylic acid.
  • Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week as the extra sebum produced can cause dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, leaving you with blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and acne. Try this Pilgrim Volcanic Lava Ash Face Scrub with Yugdugu & White Lotus. It helps remove the dead skin cells, superficial blackheads, and whiteheads with the help of its extra-fine particles and the pillowy texture.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin is usually thin or fine-textured skin and can give you an appearance of dryness, burning, itching, and redness. It can cause inflammation and irritation easily. It can also be caused by skin conditions such as allergies, eczema, or rosacea. It usually reacts quickly to temperature changes. 

Best ingredients to use for sensitive skin-

  1. Glycerin

    – Offers necessary moisturization. 

  2. White tea extract

    – It will help reduce skin irritation and redness.

  3. Sea whip-

    It acts as an anti-inflammatory to help reduce redness in the skin.

  4. Beta-Glucans-

    It makes the skin less sensitive with time besides providing antioxidant benefits.

What to avoid?

Avoid products with sodium as they can be too drying to your skin. Avoid creams and toners having alcohol, which can give you dry skin, leading to itchiness and irritation. 

Skin care routine for sensitive skin-

  • Keep your face clean all the time as it is more susceptible to acne and blemishes.
  • Use a moisturizer that contains skin strengthening ceramides every day to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
  • Don’t forget to apply sunscreen before you go out.
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to help the skin stay soft and supple.
  • Don’t put makeup too often as the chemicals in them can cause skin breakouts.
  • Do not touch the skin with dirty hands as the sensitive skin can pick up dirt and grime easily. 
  • Don’t buy products that contain acidic ingredients.

However, you should know that no matter what your skin type is if you are not taking proper care of the skin like not applying sunblock or not removing makeup before you hit the bed, all your conducts will go in vain. 

Most of the time, people tend to skip a full skincare routine in their early years. This often leads to having face wrinkles when they are in their mid or late thirties. Even though wrinkle is a common occurrence with passing age, it does not have to happen as early as the mid-30s. Many people believe that having great skin is a matter of DNA; however, that is not entirely true. Introducing good habits, like healthy food, regular exercise, and a good skincare routine would help you keep healthy skin for a long time. A good skincare routine not only makes your skin look bright and glowing, but it also is responsible for keeping your skin healthy. 

A consistent and good skincare routine prevents acne, wrinkles on face, fine lines, etc. When you make a habit of following a skincare routine, it helps your skin look youthful and radiant. As the old saying goes, you reap whatever you sow, if you are not taking care of your skin right now, few years down the line you would be having skin problems that you should not be having. There is no overnight fix for skincare. It takes time and you must be patient for the results to appear. 

Many people wonder how to manage facial wrinkles. Skincare products that could prevent face wrinkles from happening if you start taking care of it from an early age are:

  1. Cleanser:

    Do not underestimate the power of cleansing your face. Instead of just splashing your face with water, use a facial cleanser suitable for your skin type. Cleansing helps your skin to get rid of pollutants, dirt, oil, and makeup after a long day. Most skincare professionals also stress upon using the 60 second face wash method, as the product reaches the deepest regions of your pores and clean the dirt and oil. Introduce a gentle cleanser that matches your skin type to your skincare regime, you will thank yourself when you are old. 

  2. Toner:

    Toner closes your open pores and tightens your skin by restoring the nutrients and creating a protective barrier. You should apply toner right after you cleanse your face. Toner is made to gently replenish your skin of the lost moisture and nutrients. Even though earlier, toners were used to be alcohol-based, today many skincare companies have taken into account how alcohol could be harmful to your skin and have started making hydrating toners to suit every skin type.

  3. Serum:

    Serums are highly concentrated in beneficial ingredients and lightweight in the formula. Adding this step would help your skin. We recommend Pilgrim Vitamin C Night Serum that is the best easily-absorbed and non-greasy formula that can help delay signs of environmental damage. It will repair your skin while you are asleep.

  4. Moisturiser:

    Moisturising has always been the go-to step of the skincare routine. No matter what your skin type is, be it oily or dry or sensitive, moisturize religiously. Moisturizers keep your skin nourished, smooth, and healthy. If you have dry skin and always wonder how to manage facial wrinkles, always choose a thick hydrating moisturizer. If you have sensitive skin go for a lightweight, water-based moisturizer to balance your skin’s pH.

  • Sunscreen: Whether you are at home or you are going out for work, or to run a quick errand at the store, never forget your sunscreen. We recommend the Pilgrim White Lotus Day Cream that is built with SPF 50. It can help in protecting your skin from the sun and covering discolorations such as hyperpigmentation and redness. It helps to prevent wrinkles on face by protecting your skin from harmful UV-A and UV-B rays of the sun. It also helps you fix uneven skin tone, uneven tanning, skin rash, signs of skin aging, and skin sagging. You see, sunscreen really is your holy grail of the skincare routine.
  • Exfoliate:
    Exfoliating helps you get rid of the dead skin cells, thus improving your skin’s appearance and texture. You could choose to exfoliate once or twice a week, and it will be enough. While you could do physical exfoliating at home, it is advisable that you visit an expert for the chemical exfoliating.  Physical exfoliation could be harsh on the skin, which is why most dermatologists often advise that you choose chemical exfoliation.

Extra products for skincare

Some people would also add a few more steps to take their skincare routine a step further. It is not necessary for you to do, however, if you are interested you can try these steps as well. If you have acne, scars, or dark spots you could incorporate spot treatment to your nigh ttime skincare routine. You could also apply some face pack before you start your night-time regime. However, you do not need to apply a face pack every day. You could do it a day or two in a week.  

Eye creams are another product that many people do use. But many skincare experts are divided over the results it provides. While many experts claim that eye cream works wonder, others debate against the claims. Eye creams are lighter and thinner than face moisturizers are, you can apply it just after cleansing and toning, and before you apply your serums and other products. During the daytime, you can apply the eye creams under your eyes, before you apply your concealer and other makeup products.

Face oils are another product that many people swear by. You need to apply face oil after you have applied the moisturizers, serums, and other treatments. Oils can easily penetrate through all the products but it is not possible the other way around. Just like all other products, you must choose the face oil that matches your skin type. Aloe oils are most popular among people with sensitive skin as it soothes the irritated skin. 

Even though it seems like too much work to put onto your skin; however, a proper skincare routine is what will prevent the face wrinkles at old age. Consistency and patience is a virtue when it comes to skincare. You cannot expect to see results in a day or two, as it takes time for your skin to adapt to your routine. Along with the skincare routine you choose to follow, you must also make it a habit to spend make up free days, allowing your skin to breathe.
