We are far ahead of the times when having an exhaustive and expensive skincare routine was in trend. Not only were they time consuming, but scientists have proven that applying and layering your face with excessive chemicals does more harm than good. Instead it irritates the skin and causes frequent breakouts. We are not here to demotivate you from taking care of your skin, rather the opposite. We at Bombay Shaving Company felt a need to guide people in the right direction to take care of their skin irrespective of their gender.
Be it, men or women, taking care of your skin is a part of a healthy lifestyle. Bacteria from a germ pool does not discriminate between a man’s skin or a woman’s. They look for unhealthy environments where they can form a habitat. A good skincare regimen is vital for the body for the following reasons:
- It keeps the skin looking youthful and radiant.
- It does not let the dead skin cells take over your face or any other body part.
- An effective regimen prevents acne, wrinkles and reduces blemishes to keep the skin healthy.
Let us get you on board with products to keep your skin healthy.
- A gentle cleanser
The first step towards any skincare regimen is to clean your skin for the products you will apply in the near future. Avoid using any fancy products with artificial fragrances. To start, you can look at products that are paraben-free, SLS free, pH balanced, and are favorable for your skin. Using a gentle cleanser is the best choice one can make. It does not cause irritation, keep the skin calm, and cleans it from deep inside.
Are you struggling to choose between a cleanser for oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin? Well, you just got lucky with an interesting tip. Follow these steps to find your skin type to choose a suitable cleanser for yourself:
- Gently wash your face with a mild cleanser and pat dry.
- Do not use any products like moisturizers, serums, creams for the next 60 minutes.
- Examine your skin. If you feel a tightness in your face while smiling, you likely have dry skin. If you see a noticeable shine on your forehead and nose, you probably have normal/combination skin. Lastly, a noticeable glow on the T zone, the forehead, nose, and cheeks, indicates oily skin characteristics.
Several researchers claim that adopting face cleaning before bed can repair your skin overnight. Follow this simple skincare step to get great results.
- Essential serums for the face
After proper cleaning of your face, it is time for the application of a vitamin C serum. The serum works on three pillars of skin lightening, tightening, and brightening. It is a great product to keep your skin looking younger. It can reduce the premature wrinkling of skin while stimulating collagen growth. This rich antioxidant complex protects the skin from the sun’s harmful rays, keeping it safe from free radicals and damage. One can start using vitamin C in their 20s.
Another appreciated serum for the face is a retinol serum. While vitamin C protects your skin from the sun, retinol nourishes it overnight. Note that it is harmful to use both vitamin C and retinol serums one after another. Use vitamin C in the daytime and retinol while going to bed.
- A grease-free moisturizer
People with oily skin would claim that moisturizer causes acne. But the harsh truth is that not using one causes frequent breakouts. Moisturizing your skin every day within five minutes of taking a good shower can reduce the risk of developing extreme dryness, itching, and oiliness too.
A good moisturizer makes sure that your healthy cells are not getting irritated due to lack of hydration or oils. One with dry skin should opt for a thicker or more hydrating moisturizer. A person with oily skin should go for an oil-free, non-greasy, and lightweight moisturizer. We recommend using alcohol and fragrances free products even if you do not have sensitive skin. Moisturize your face after every wash for better results.
- Natural ingredient-based body creams/lotions

- Do not forget your sunscreen
Sunscreen protects the skin from harmful UV rays from the sun. Not only that, one should apply sunscreen at home to protect their skin from the rays of phones, laptops, or any other device. Use sunscreen with SPF between 30 and 50 every day to reduce the appearance of age spots, skin problems, sagging, and wrinkles.
- Exfoliator for the skin
Exfoliation of skin means removing dead skin cells that lie externally. It leaves our skin looking brighter. A good exfoliator opens the pores of the skin for enhanced absorption of skincare products. Experts advise exfoliating the skin two to three times per week or as long as your skin does not feel irritated. Regular exfoliation decreases the clogging of pores and the frequency of breakouts.
Skincare in a nutshell
The most crucial part of following a skincare routine is following the right way. The most common mistake people make is to use a retinol serum and vitamin C serum together one after the other. It not only irritates the skin but can cause severe redness and cell weakness. Vitamin C and sunscreen together make a power couple to fight UV rays. Incorporate these six essential products in your daily routine to get radiant and healthy skin in no time.
