It’s 2020 and rest assured, being such beauty fanatics, we all are already doing a lot for our skin. However, CTM-cleansing, toning and moisturizing is a different ballgame altogether. These aren’t just the three mandatory steps for glowing, fresh skin, but also the core of healthy skincare.
So, how do we go about this CTM routine without breaking the bank?
Wash your face thoroughly with water. Try using water at room tmeprature as too hot or too cold can be harsh for your skin.
Buy a reliable brand of hydrating cleanser and massage it into your face so that it removes all the dirt and grime that has been accumulated on your face throughout the day. Take a full minute to work the cleanser, wash it off, and pat your skin dry using a soft cotton cloth.
Soak a cotton pad generously in an effective toner and apply it all over your face. A toner’s job is to balance the ph level of the face and to allow better absorption of products in the skin. Or, you can also simply spritz some chilled rosewater.
You need to moisturize no matter what. Get a good moisturizer and gently massage it into your skin.
Why is the CTM routine beneficial for our skin?
Cleansing is simply not enough to remove all the impurities from or face. That is why, we always follow it up with toning. A good toner doesn’t remove the dead cells but it also removes most of the leftover impurities in our skin.
After toning, it’s essential that you generously moisturize your skin to close all the skin pores which otherwise will deb deprived of all the moisture and leave your skin looking dry and flaky. And we all know dry skin doesn’t only look unpleasant but also ages faster.
